I wrote about the Harada's recent tweet emphasizing Pokken's success, but the fact that any opportunity for a sequel is 100% up to Nintendo and the Pokemon company. I've also included a chunk of Pokken history leading up to it, where the sentiments lie, and the significance of developer support in the Pokken Tournament scene.

However, after the release of Blastoise on March 23rd, 2018, Pokkén Tournament, the great silence began again. To this day, no news, updates, or balance patches have been released or announced for Pokkén Tournament.
It hadn't hit me how long it's been. This is really sad, and the game had so much potential. I suppose at this point they may just not want to compete with giants like Smash? :s

No no no no no no no no and no and more no and still no and I could literally do this all day with how much no and one more thing....

HELL NO

I had enough trouble with this game not once but twice and dropped it both times. I don't need to go through that muk again with a sequel.

As far as I'm concerned I'm glad it's dead and it can stay dead for all I care.

If you hated playing the first Pokken, it's not like you have to play the (hypothetical) sequel you know

Say, guys. I'm just wanting to know whether you think that Arbok and/or Gyarados (including Mega Gyarados) will become playable or support Pokémon in the Pokkén sequel? Why do you think?
Snake-like Pokémon sounds tricky! But they made Suicune work as a quadruped representative and they're AMAZINGLY well done. It'd be a great challenge to the developers to make them a fighter!

I think a support is more likely.

Man at first I thought I wouldn't like Pokkén, but now I'm liking it enough that I'd really hope to see a sequel that improves on a number of aspects of the original. It helps that it's a good game that allows me to pick up a number of underrepresented Pokémon, and lay the smack on overrated Pokémon like Lucario, Pikachu or Charizard for basically as long as I want to.

I think this is one of the aspects that needs the most fixing. Despite having a cast of 800+ varied creatues from all clades of life and then some, Pokkén fell into the trite, trodden trope of pretty much nearly only having a cast of "humans in fursuits": most if not all fighters are bipedals with two arms or otherwise fight like humans. Even Suicune, the token quadruped representation, majorly fights like a bipedal would and does not make use of any of the kinesthetical strengths quadrupeds have against bipeds, such as snap-and-drags, pouncing or flan tanking for counters (man, Terrakion would be interesting for that one). To make it worse, the one bird - Decidueye? A bird with hands. It does not even have raptorial attacks except for the jump front dive.

What Pokkén needs and what would first drive me more to the sequel is a more varied cast, more selectable fighters, exploring different avenues of combat. Lileep or Cradily could be interesting representation and could explore a novel gameplay, based around moving in hops, clinging to the opponent and using constriction and hold moves rather than kicks and punches. A heavier built quadruped like Meganium or Terrakion could work snap-and-drags, ramming and body presses. A facultative quadruped like Feraligatr or Beartic with a stance system could be a trick opponent against players who are used to the bipedal tropes. And we could have birds - and dragons- that fight like aerial creatures, not to mention better profit from 3D movement during Open Phase.

Pokkén could be a very good and promising franchise to add more to Pokémon with. But first it has to get out of the boring, "easy print money" / "abuse overrated franchise icons" mindset that has been already killing the mainline games for over a decade.
