Move Over Steve Austin, Pikachu Can Do the Stunner, Too

And like that, Pokkén Tournament is suddenly that much cooler. The above GIF is from a Pokkén trailer for Masked Pikachu. It's not a new trailer (it's old!), but Redditors on r/Pokemon recently pointed out that, yes, this certainly appears to be the Stunner.

During his career, Stone Cold Steve Austin popularised the move as the "Stone Cold Stunner". According to Austin, Michael P.S. Hayes first showed him this now iconic finisher in 1996.

And now, a decade later, Masked Pikachu is using it to take out Charizard and Lucario.

Pokkén Tournament will be out in worldwide on the Wii U this March and in Japanese arcades on July 16.

    Already in Japanese arcades, that was last year.

    Such a long time between this article and the trailer it was shown in. Is reddit that slow to pick it up or is it like the tenth thread about it?

    I hope after the stunner Pikachu gives the finger to Red Trainer and then sculls at least 2 cans of beer
