The next images from CoroCoro have come and have revealed some new details for Shadow Mewtwo in the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament, due out next month globally. In it, it notes that its Psywave attacks can be used in multiple different ways. It can go on the offence with both Power and Technical moves that keep shifting in order to confuse the opponent. Psywave is primarily a close combat move used for setting up combos, but it can also be used as a vortex to suck in opponents and can also be used as a projectile.
It is also said that Shadow Mewtwo storms the 1 Player Mode, Ferrum League. It questions what Shadow Mewtwo's objective is and its relation to the mysterious girl. It can also use Thunder Punch, Fire Punch and Ice Punch in quick succession. If all three hit, a huge amount of damage is dealt.
Finally, it lists standard Mewtwo as being able to use moves such as Hyper Beam.

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the second generation. The light of the moon changed Eevee's genetic structure. It lurks in darkness for prey. When exposed to the moon's aura, the rings on its body glow faintly and it's filled with a mysterious power. Umbreon evolved as a result of exposure to the moon's waves. It hides silently in darkness and waits for its foes to make a move. The rings on its body glow when it leaps to attack. So, here it is, the one-hundred & eighteenth entry, Umbreon.

Detective Pikachu

Following the reveal earlier this week, the official site has updated with new pre-release screenshots and details for Detective Pikachu ~Birth of a New Duo~. We're currently translating details so be sure to check back
Detective Pikachu likes coffee and asks Tim to invite attractive women over for tea, but is weak around them. Detective Pikachu, due to being able to talk, cannot use any moves and isn't very fast.
Mike Baker is head of the Detective Agency. Amanda Blackstone is the office assistant. Amelia Kristi is a new Assistant Director at a TV Station. Meiko Okamoto is a TV Director. Pablo Milan is the owner of the High Hat Cafe.
In the gameplay, you play as Tim as he has interviews with people and gathers evidence with the help of Detective Pikachu. In the gameplay, you walk around Rhyme City. Tim interviews humans while Pikachu interviews Pokémon. While exploring town, you can find spots to investigate. You can look for evidence by using a magnifying glass and moving it around the scene until you find something. If Pikachu notices anything, the bottom screen image of Pikachu will activate. Tap it to speak with Pikachu to get a hint or advice. Finally, there are elements with Quick Time Events where you have to push a button in time to perform an action, such as catching Pikachu after he falls from a tree. If you fail to do so, the following scene changes slightly. It doesn't affect progress, but just changes how things go such as Pikachu hitting Tim's chest rather than being caught. From there, you solve the crimes based on evidence. The example given is to find out where Aipom disappeared to.
