The action-fighting game Pokken Tournament DX is coming to Nintendo Switch.
That was one of the big news stories from The Pokemon Company today. There will be Pokemon from Sun and Moon joining the fray too: Litten and Popplio along with Decidueye, the Grass/Ghost Pokemon which evolves from Dartrix and the final form of Rowlet.
All previous Pokemon from Pokken Tournament Wii U and the arcade versions will be available as well.
