  1. OMG! I wanna know if DLC is possible now for Pokémon now like Hitmonchan or Marshadow?

    I would be blazing as Hitmonchan kicking ass and taking names with my fists!

    Or maybe Hitmonlee with his kick ass legs.

    But how about Hitmontop with his spinning top of doom!

    The possibilities are endless! lol
