Pokken Fighters, Pokken Tournament trademarked in Europe
posted on 05.05.14 at 05:50 PM EDT by (@salromano)
New registrations following August United States filings.


The Pokemon Company has registered trademarks for “Pokken Fighters and “Pokken Tournament” in Europe.

The filings, which were made on May 1, follow the August trademarks of the same names in the United States.

Considering nothing has been announced, it isn’t known whether this is a new game. But some have speculated it is related to that Wii U-looking teaser shown at The Pokemon Game Show back in August.

Thanks, GoNintendo (via NeoGAF).

    Rumor says it’s a Namco Bandai developed title using the Tekken engine, hence the name “Pokken”.

      Interesting if true. Was hoping for new pokemon stadium.

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        Me too man, me too.

    • Anime10121

      ALL of my want if true! It’ll be like Pokemon Stadium…only with ACTUAL fights!!! This could be the game to make me love my Wii U (especially if it comes out this year) since Smash is being held in a prison somewhere until winter!

    • new_tradition

      That sounds awesome *_*

      • Budgiecat

        hmm…I’d rather they use 3D roam style seems more fitting

    • Elvick

      That would make the name make some sense at least, I don’t like the name though.

      And I hope it’s not a Tekken reskin.

    There is no way this is not a thing at this point. Hopefully we will see more at E3.

    • Anime10121

      Hopefully the big N brings their A game to their online thingy, as this’d be the type of thing I’d like to see from them!

  • MrFinalgamer

    So a fighting game based on pokemon? Nice, only took you like 10 years to make it a thing nintendo. They’ll probably announce it at E3

    • Gigus

      They have brain poo.

        Ahh haa!! I found you, in responce to this “Really?! Thats cold. 1 and 2 aren’t that bad. Anyways Bard finally finished his breaking bad tee and posted it in the comments at your site but he said it got deleted real fast XD. Guess someone doesn’t him there. He also tweeted takuchat but after what happened he’s feeling the cold shoulder and doesn’t feel like posting there anymore. I’m already telling to use my disqus account but he knows I’m why I left that site so he doesn’t wanna bother you guys. Well he says thanks for helping out though with his foxhound tee :P. He’ll just stick to posting here instead.”

        It didnt actually get deleted,it just got buried cause the site was super busy, and our Twitter isnt active is it??

        I can post his shirt on Facebook though!

        • Gigus

          Jeez you can find me on psn also lol. Well I really don’t know if that’ll help XD. No one bought his shirt :/ We’re actually collaborating more and working on a FMA shirt now so we’re still trying XD. Its really up to you if you wanna post it there. What do you think of the logo though? Is it Heisenberg worthy?

          It is a bit out of bounds but even you have to admit that after 4 different releases of the same game they should have came out with a Pokemon fighting game already.

          • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

            Wait? An FMA shirt 0_O ….I want to see!!!

            • Gigus

              We’re not done XD and its not ed related but I think you’ll still like it. Hey you avoided my question! Guess you didn’t like the breaking bad tee also XP

              • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

                I cant remember what it looked like actually, Ive been stupidly busy and it sucks

                • Gigus


                  There :D! I’m not asking you to buy it just an opinion :3.

                  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

                    Oh! I remember it now! I actually really like it, make sure to keep it up, I may end up getting it when I get some money

                    • Gigus

                      I’m really trying to kelly but me and bard are so tired of failing. We’ve submitted our tee concepts everywhere but we keep getting rejected :/

                      So when we started on teepublic, we realized it was just as hard trying to promote ourselves XD. The breaking bad subreddit community were pretty harsh compared to the MGS community lol. We got the swift boot real fast lol.

                      We’re actually trying to finish up at least 4 designs right by the end of next week monday but we’re so tired from doing this and working temp jobs lol. Thanks for the support though. Apologies though if our self marketing is pissing you guys off at the other site XP.

                      If you need to find me, just message me on psn or on the openforums here.

                    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

                      Just keep it up!! It might seem tough but you’ll get the hang of it, and if you guys feel like you need design help you should stop by Deviant art, they have some amazing design artist there ( like professionals ) Theyve helped me with stuff before too

  • new_tradition

    Alright guys, what would be the top 10 guaranteed Pokemon to be in a fighting game?

    • Anime10121

      Pikachu’s a given for a spot…

      I’d say


      Mewtwo Greninja

      kawaii fighting bear from X/Y



      One of the legendary dogs Entei, Raikou, or Suicune


      Ice cream Cone pokemon just for the WTF’s

      Dragonite BITCH! (Video NSFW)


      • MrFinalgamer

        A pokemon fighting game list, yet no Machamp, and Hitmonlee, or Hitmonchan? tsk tsk tsk

        • Anime10121

          I thought about them, especially considering the first 150 are the only Pokemon I actually truly remember (and a majority of Gold and Silver’s as well :P), but I figured they’d all be too plain being “strictly” fighter Pokemon, so I didnt put them in:P

          • MrFinalgamer

            The only bad thing about this is that ghost types would most likely not be in the game.

            But I sure hope we have Feraligatr, because who wouldn’t want to wrestle an alligator???

            • Anime10121

              Yes, he too would be amazing add in!

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Kawaii bear? You mean Pancham?

        • Anime10121

          Yep, never really played past the first gym In X so I forgot…

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am on my second playthrough :3 using all new members I didn’t use before.

            • Anime10121

              Might try playing it when I swap my standard 3DS out for an XL… as I cant use the standard one as its hard on the eyes :(

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar


        • Anime10121

          Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY :D

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Thank you.

    • KingNigma

      Every fighting type?…Oh top 10.

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    That’s just a rumor though.

    • Solomon_Kano

      What’s a rumor? The trademark? The article isn’t about anything else and that’s real, so I’m not following.

  • César H. Sandoval

    First Zelda Dinasty Warriors and now Pokemon Tekken… What would they think of next?

    Metroid Castlevania?! …Oh, wait!

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Damn Is all I have to say about the graphics. I’m usually not one to talk about graphics when it comes to video games but Damn Ninty you’re actually impressing me with the fact you want a comeback.

    X is one game I hope gets an official release date.

  • True Gamer

    Oh man I hope the fighting style is like naurto/saint seiya. That would be very interesting. I love the traditional pokemon games, but I want to see a brawler of all of the best pokemon head to head

  • Budgiecat

    If it looks just like that picture with destructible environments, I’m down.

    If it’s just a tekken reskin, no thanks…

  • DukeMagus

    Well, Pokémons can fight well on smash… they could work on a specific fighting game.

    Specially with beasts like hitmonchan or hitmonlee on it

  • Elvick

    If that’s the name, that’s a terrible name.

    But I’ll have to see something before I make a decision on the game itself.

  • Akari Akaza

    Gotta catch em all….Make it happen Nintendo….^_^

  • An Tran

    Guessing it’s another collab game, since Nintendo still needs outside help in getting all their dev studios ready for modern game development. Considering the name, and the possibly related image of two fighting-type pokemen on what looks like a typical fighting game stage, they’re obviously pairing up with Bammy’s Tekken team to produce a Pokemon-themed Tekken game.

  • McPoo

    Who wants to bet it’s motion controlled?

  • Samsara09

    this looks like another pokemon satadium look-like.Hope they don’t pull that stupid game for the WII…that was pitiful,and worse,nintendo tricked me and others who bought it to think it would be as fucking epic as pokemon stadium 1 and 2.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Lol “tricked”

      And you really believe that.
