    The Pokemon games for the Wii were "OK". I thought they could have done much more.
    No Pokemon for the Wii U ?
    C'mon Nintendo.
    It's like you aren't trying.

    Even Pokemon X and Y ... can't they be made for the Wii U ?

    There is a Pokemon game coming to WiiU. As for the main series games I highly doubt Nintendo would port them or put a main series game on a home console. They know they make most of their money on portable consoles so they'll keep the big games where the money is made. Home consoles are just for the side games.

    Pokken Tournament is what that article was referring to. It's a crossover of Pokemon and Tekken.

    It was never explicitly stated that Pokken was going to be released on the Wii U, though it does seem rather likely.

    Pokken has only been announced as an arcade game. It won't see a console release for a long time (if it does at all).

    The first time I read about Pokken Tournament I thought it was for the Wii U but it's actually an Arcade game. Maybe we'll get it down the road.

    namco fighting games always start out on arcades. always. its cheaper for them to playtest and for balancing purposes (it also brings in lots of cash cause arcades are big in japan)

    it will come to console and no doubt, will be wii u exclusive. expect about 6-12 months until jap release.

    pokemon = pocket monsters. the real games will stay pocket only.

    i do however feel disappointed that they didn't give us a pokemon snap for wiiu.

    It'll either be for Wii U or Nintendo's next home console.
