Promotional event, web portal

Today, a promotional event for Pokkén Tournament was announced. If you play the game before July 31st, using a BANA Passport, you can unlock two special assist Pokémon: Whimsicott (it can use Substitute) and Jirachi (it can use Wish in order to increase your Burst Gauge).

But that’s not all: the BANA Passport can also be used to register on a special web portal, which is accessible from a PC, a smartphone or a tablet (click here!). Players can use it in order to take advantage of various features. If you pay 300 Yen a month, you acn get access to some additional features.

Here’s a handy chart showing the difference between the free and premium service for the web portal (courtesy of Serebii):

The official trailer for Blaziken was also shown during the livestream:

Finally, the official Twitter account is running a special campaign, where fans can suggest Pokémon to be added as Support Pokémon. You have until July 23rd to make a suggestion, adding @pokken_official and #ポッ拳 in your message.

Pokkén Tournament (Arcade) was launched today in Japan. Blaziken will be added to the game next month.
