The roster of the upcoming fighting game “Pokken Tournament” is expanding, and just last week it was teased to add another popular Pokemon. A new image leak shows who this new Pokemon is along with others that could be used as support characters during the matches in the game.

A leaked photo by Pokenchi presenter Shoko Nakagawa reveals that 2nd-gen starter Pokemon Sceptile could be coming to “Pokken Tournament.” Sceptile will be joining the other 2nd-gen starter Pokemon, Blaziken. The photo can be seen on Dualshockers.

Aside from the new character coming to “Pokken Tournament,” the photo also reveals two new support characters, Farfetch’d and Electrode, which are both are 1st-gen Pokemons. The developer has yet to confirm whether or not Sceptile and the two support characters will be coming to the game, but there will be a character reveal this coming Thursday.

The upcoming “Pokken Tournament” is co-developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment, the developer behind one of the most popular fighting games, “Tekken.” The upcoming Wii U fighting game is indeed highly reminiscent of “Tekken,” and it is also a unique take on the Pokemon franchise.

As of now, the roster of “Pokken Tournament” isn’t as large as other fighting game lineups, but it will surely entice fans of the franchise. The list of confirmed characters can be seen on Serebii, and they include Pikachu, Pikachu Libre, Machamp, Charizard, Gengar, Suicune, Blaziken, Gardevoir, Lucario and Weavil. The fighting game will also feature the first appearance of a unique version of Mewtwo, called Shadow Mewtwo.

“Pokken Tournament” will launch sometime in 2016. It will be launched for Nintendo’s current home console, the Nintendo Wii U.
