Pokkén Tournament (JP) is a Pokémon 3D fighting game developed by Bandai Namco Games. It has many influences from the Tekken series. An enchaned port known as Pokkén Tournament DX will release for Nintendo Switch on September 22, 2017.
The game is played with 4 face buttons for attacks and jumping, a D-pad for movement, the left trigger for assists and the right trigger for guarding. The face buttons combined with directional inputs results in different techniques.
At first, it plays like a 3-D fighter with fairly free movement but, when a strong attack hits, phase mode activates and the fight moves to a 2D plane. Getting blown back returns the fight to 3D.
There is also something called Resonance Burst Mode, which is generated over the match. It turns the Pokémon into their Mega Evolution or a powered up form if they don’t have one. They also get a Burst attack in this mode that basically functions like an Ultra.
