Back when link cables were a necessity there was a question that defined Pokémon: Red or Blue? A lot of that came down to who you liked more between Charizard and Blastoise. Now that battle’s about to come back, with Blastoise finally making its Pokkén Tournament debut as DLC.

At a recent Japanese event Blastoise was shown off, battling Pikachu and showing off what it’s got up its shell. You can see its long range, water based attacks and its Mega Evolution in action along with new support Pokémon Mew and Celebi.

Blastoise and its buddies will arrive on March 23rd for those who picked up the Pokkeén Tournament DX Battle Pack. Anyone who hasn’t can grab it for $14.99 to receive fellow DLC fighter Aegislash right away. In the meantime I better work on my Charizard came to settle things with its rival starter.
