Earleir this month, it was announced that Blaziken would be added to Pokkén Tournament in August. And today, Bandai-Namco revealed some more information about that. Blaziken will be playable in the game starting August 6th, but there’s a catch: it will only be playable during a pre-release period, which will also serve as playtesting sessions for Bandai-Namco.
