Garchomp is the final evolution of Gibble and the evolution of Gabite. It is a Dragon/Ground and is known as the Mach Pokémon. It is a playable Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament. Garchomp was initially exclusive to the Wii U version of Pokkén, but was added to the arcade version with version A14 on July 20th, 2016.
In Pokkén Tournament Edit
Garchomp is a power fighter, similar to Tekken's Bryan Fury, even has some of Bryan's moves. Its most versatile ability, Dig, can be used to travel across the arena quickly or to the enemy quickly, it can also transition into a running stance to travel quickly as well. It is somewhat complex compared to the other Pokkén power fighters as most of its moves aren't straightforward attacks (as opposed to more straightforward characters such as Blaziken and Lucario). For example, Stone Edge can be used as a alternative to Garchomp's regular counter attack while Sand Tomb can be used as a alternative to Garchomp's standard grab.
