Pokkén Tournament: World Championship is a Pokémon fighting game. Like its predecessor, it is heavily based on the Tekken series of games, and is developed by Bandai Namco Games and published by Nintendo. The game features most of the content of its prequel and builds upon it.
The game returns most features from the previous game, Pokkén Tournament on the Wii U. The player can choose from various modes, such as Solo Battles and Tag Team Battles. A feature that also returns is Burst Mode, which comes with Burst Attacks; a short period in which the Pokémon becomes faster and deals more damage than usual, which ends with a special Burst Attack which deals a large amount of damage once it hits. Players also can create a trainer to represent themselves, which will be standing next to the stage during battles. Support Pokémon also return, but they are not in sets and can not be changed inbetween matches.
The player can also play local or online multiplayer matches. In the former, the player may choose Tag Team Battles or Solo Battles. In online multiplayer, the player can also set up tournaments with friends.
Another feature is that stages can feature gimmicks in addition to the battle. While some stages feature only minor gimmicks, other stages may feature gimmicks that affect a Pokémon or that make parts of the stage take different shapes. Gimmicks can also be turned off for a stage beforehand while selecting a stage.
The game features 42 Pokémon, of which 24 are default, and 18 are unlockable. It features 7 Pokémon per generation.
