Pokken Tournament will be introducing a new character according to the official Pokken Twitter account which has been teasing new additions are the way. Several months ago, Bandai Namco released a series of marketing vignettes that led to even more speculation after data miners uncovered files via Reddit for three new Pokemon: Empoleon, Darkrai, and Scizor.
Since that time, there hasn’t been a lot of information since the character leaks, as Shoryuken.com reports that it took four months for Scizor to be announced following the Darkrai reveal. But based on previous leaks, there's a good chance that Empoleon will be the next Pokémon to make an appearance.
It’s speculated that the Bandai Namco will be looking to make a significant marketing push very shortly prior to the launch of the new season. And while fans are naturally eager (and patient) for more details, they won’t have to wait too much longer as an official character reveal is scheduled to go down on November 1st.
