Pokkén Tournament Won’t Include Tekken Characters, Will Include All Types of Pokémon

In addition, Harada confirmed that there will be all sorts of Pokémon, not just fighting-type creatures. I can only imagine what it would be like to face off against a Machamp as the tiny and delicate Pichu. Something tells me that bite-sized mouse won't make it into the roster.
