Tekken Director Says Heihachi’s Favourite Pokemon Is Pikachu

It’s a real shame that corporations protect their intellectual property so zealously. You can’t really blame Nintendo for wanting to keep their billion-dollar egg safe, but if they were to loosen the reins a bit, we could have a lot of great Pokemon crossovers.


Instead, fans are forced to ask game directors who their favorite characters would train as their favorite Pokemon. Katsuhiro Harada, game director and lead producer of the Tekken series for the past 28 years, was recently asked on Twitter “which Pokémon would be Kazuya’s favorite?” The Tekken fan suggested Pikachu just because of their shared Electric-type moves, but Harada had a surprising answer.

“Heihachi’s favorite is Pikachu (slightly similar in silhouette)” Harada wrote. “Kazuya misinterprets Kirby as a type of Pokémon.”

When you think about it, this makes sense. Kazuya has always been too focused on training to defeat his evil father to pay attention to Pokémon, even when it comes to the biggest video game franchise in the world. Heihachi, like a successful businessman, would pay attention to world events. He probably already has an idea for a Tekken crossover; he’s just waiting for the right opportunity to make The Pokemon Company an offer.

In the meantime, Kazuya has captured Kirby and holds him hostage. Someone please rescue Kirby from this man with electric fists.

Harada should really pair the rest of the Tekken cast with his favorite Pokemon. I personally would put King with Litleo, Feng Wei with Mienshao, Nina with Eevee and Bob with Snorlax.

We are still waiting for the release date of Tekken 8, but we know that it will be built on Unreal Engine 5. We also know that the story will focus on a family feud between Kazuya and Jin. It is unknown where Heihachi is in this; maybe he’s too busy talking business with Pikachu.
