Fans have long clamored for a Pokemon fighting game. There are even fan-made versions of one. Rumors of such a game sprung up last weekend at the Pokemon Game Show, when an HD screenshot was released of two Pokemon, Blaziken and Lucario, facing off in the middle of a big city.
Was it unrealistic for fans to see that screenshot and hope for a Pokemon fighting game? Perhaps not. According to serebii.net, The Pokemon Company just filed for two trademarks: "Pokken Fighters" and "Pokken Tournament." Sure sounds like a Pokemon fighting game to me. It's all still speculation until we get an official announcement, but things are hopeful. A full-fledged HD Pokemon fighter for the Wii U would certainly bolster its lineup of games and thrill fans.
