A huge patch for Pokken Tournament recently hit consoles that brought with it not only changes to nearly every character in the game, but also a few interesting additional files that could point to who will be added to the game soon.


The Japanese trailer for the summer patch states that new Pokemon coming to the roster will soon be announced. The more tech-savvy trainers in the Pokken Tournament community have been working to scrounge up hints to find out who's coming.

Members of the /r/PokkenGame subreddit managed to uncover new files tucked into the 1.3 update that reference Darkrai, Scizor, and Empoleon. The files that were found have matching Pokedex numbers, and names of a few moves each Pokemon are capable of using.
The archive that these files were located in seems to contain supplemental files for various fighters and support Pokemon, so we can't quite say that the DLC is confirmed, but the lead does seem to be pretty solid at this point.

For those interested, you can check out the patch trailer in the video below.
