It will probably be like Tekken if the -ken in its name is any indication plus that the Tekken Producer is supposed to be working on it


That's not even remotely true. We literally don't know anything about this thing except for it's title. We don't even know if it's a game. I'm only speculating when I match the video up with the title. They could very posibly be two completely unrelated things.



Well, this is new.

Copying the Ultimate Ninja Storm series makes the most sense when taking into account moves and abilities the Pokemon have. I hope it's not an NFC game, because then I won't buy it.

Have all 25, non-legendary, fully-evolved fighting Pokemon in the game - include Mega Mewtwo, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Keldeo, and Pirouette Meloetta as DLC.


I don't see why pre evolutions can't be in the game as well.

If true, Emboar will suck in this game. He'll be slow as fuck, same with conkeldurr, how will he fight carrying those 2 pillars?

A number of them aren't even fighting types - Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Torchic, Shroomish, Ralts, Kirlia, Chimchar, Tepig, Chespin and Quilladin. In the games all Pokemon aren't created equal - I know this game would not be canon - but having a Tyrogue take out a Blaziken would be silly.

I don't think it would be silly at all. The ninja storm series has young characters like kid Naruto and Obito taking out guys like Madara and Hashirama. The same dynamic can happen here.

And with the fighting types, they can take liberties. While Pokemon like Poliwag, Shroomish, and Torchic wouldn't fit, I don't see why Poliwhirl, Kirlia, and Quilladin can't. Same with other guys like Snorlax, Alakazam, and Electivire.

What I want to know is how they'd handle types. They obviously can't do 2x damage, but it'd be tough to justify ignoring typing altogether.

It is slight speculation but if I recall correctly, he said he was working 1. on 2 titles for 2014 and 2. Neither were Tekken related. It's pretty likely they got Bandai Namco to work on it since Nintendo owns part of the company. 
In addition, it's far more likely that the creator of the Naruto games, CyberConnect2, who are busy with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution due this fall, and the the iOS title, Little Tail Story.

Everyone assumes that the roster will be all fighting types, but why does it have to be? Because it's a "fighting" game? That's a genre, not a Pokemon type! I think so long as the Pokemon are mostly physical move users instead of special move users, it could work. And if it's like Naruto, then the Pokemon not being equal makes sense. Yeah, as spemanig said, young Naruto can fight Madara, but he won't likely win. If you've actually played the games, you know how unbalanced all the characters are. Young Naruto would get his ass handed to him by Madara, but Sage Mode Naruto could handle him. In a similar vein, I could imagine having Tyrogue and Mega Blaziken in the game, and the only way Blaziken would ever lose is if Blaziken was being played by a noob and Tyrogue by a national level competitive tournament winner.



Somewhat like Tekken I presume?

I think more like the Naruto games. As long as I can use Toxicroak, I'm down for either. I'd rather a blend of the two.

Not sure about Naruto. I think it's most likely going to be like Tekken, which is definitely a good thing since  Tekken is a good franchise!
