So it sounds like there will be some variance outside of just Fighting bipeds, particularly when it comes to fan requests, so that's nice. Not much else to say other then that though since we haven't been given too much else, could be fun, but I'll sit back and watch where they goes with this.---Is it true that Tekken characters [will] be making guest appearances in Pokemon/Pokken Tournament?
Harada: Ha, ha, ha. Nope, Tekken characters will not be making an appearance.
As we're making a Pokemon fighting action battle game, I've already touched on this while on the livestream, but in this game there will not be a high/mid/low guard system mechanic. Instead, we're planning to include a new type of [mechanic]...
---As it's a fighting game, I'm a little worried that the roster will be full of humanoid-looking Pokemons. I'd rather be surprised with unexpected picks instead.
Harada: That's not a problem at all. Technologically-speaking, we shouldn't face any problems in implementing whatever Pokemon we want. In terms of the system mechanics, we'll be looking at what fans would want, so please rest assured.
---Will Harada-san be making an appearance in the game, as "Harada The Strongest Gym Leader"?
Harada: Well, (laughs) if we did that we'll probably piss off Pokemon fans (but you already knew that, right?!).
---Congrats on making Pokken a reality! And thank you for that! Rather than tweet you a request, today I've got a bit of a query: in Pokken Tournament it seems like Pokemon trainers do not exist? It's not that I'm requesting for them to make an appearance, but rather I'd just like to find out if that's the case.
Harada: Worry not.
Oh for the love of! Digimon all-stars is coming out in later this year, While this game is a time exclusive for japanese arcade in 2015 and we'll probably won't see it outside of japan untill 2016.
???Indirectly, it does have to do with Pokémon. Specifically, Pikachu, Charizard, Lucario, Jigglypuff, and Greninja.
