One week until Blastoise is released, and recently information on not just Blastoise, but also Mew and Celebi was released on the official Japanese Pokkén website!
First, let's start with the new Battle Pokémon Blastoise.
Blastoise, a Battle Pokémon with excellent long range offence and top class physical strength for close quarters. From the information given, it seems that Blastoise could have varying stances in both Field and Duel Phase. In Duel Phase, he can go into his shell from which he can perform different attacks based on which button the player presses. In Field, he can choose to pressure opponents long range with various cannon shots. Blastoise’s Burst Attack is “Gun Destruction”, in which Blastoise mega-evolves to unleash a powerful close range attack that ends in a spectacular blast from his rocket cannon on his back!
Onto the new Support Pokémon, Mew comes packing the ability “Metronome”. While increasing the Synergy gauge, Mew also gives a random buff alongside a critical hit buff allowing for it to be great for putting on pressure.
Celebi adds an all-new feature to the game! With the ability “Time Travel” you can now switch Phases at any given moment! This exciting ability is surely one of a kind and we can’t wait to see how it’s implemented into everyone’s battle plan.
Alongside the new Pokémon, more customization options will be available! As shown below, new shirts, hairstyles, glasses, scarves and an entire new Rock Style outfit is unlocked to customize your avatar to your heart’s content. Speaking of outfits, Nia gets two new ones!
This is all of the information we have as of now for Wave 2 of DLC Battle Pack 1, but if we missed anything we’ll be sure to update this post with the latest news. Have fun everyone and see you all online on the 23rd!
