Give me one good reason why this guy won't be in Smash

Too many pokeymong reps

Doesn't make much sense

Mewtwo would be better

Grass type starters are shit and always will be.
Water for life.
>>
>>253756330
>Too many pokeymong reps
In Brawl, there were 6 pokemon reps
We only have 4 in smash 4

>Doesn't make much sense
Makes perfect sense
Complete the fire-water-grass trio
He's a fully evolved starter
Gen III remakes are coming out

>Mewtwo would be better
Mewtwo was cut for a reason, for being too similar to Lucario

All transformations taken into consideration?

Pokemon had 6 pokemon representatives.
As of now, SS4 has 4.
Additionally, having starter pokemon representatives from multiple generations makes a lot of sense.

>Mewtwo would be much better
I don't think we're ever going to get another legendary character as a playable pokemon. I remain convinced that the legendary status is the biggest reason he was cut in favor of Mewtwo.

Not going to happen.

Mewtwo getting cut for being too similar to Lucario is a load of bullshit as well. He was cut due to time constraints.

already 4 pokemon reps.
maximum number of reps per series is five and they'd have to cut jigglypuff and i don't think it will happen.

No he doesn't.

Because the roster was decided upon BEFORE X and Y was even getting made really.
So your logic of "it supports a up and coming game" doesn't exist, since Greninja was decided on when he only had concept art.
>>
>>253757308
Never saw any proof of your "too similar theory to Lucario theory" but here you go.

http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/4964/sakurai-cut-characters-from-smash-bros/

>Sadly, we had to trim out many great concepts just to keep within the time contraints. I had a lot more characters, for example.. but sadly I can't discuss which ones didn't make it."

Since Brawl had fragments of Mewtwo character data among others we can safely assume that he was one of the cut characters due to time constraints.
>>
>>253756330
>Too many pokeymong reps

Pokemon has 700+ pokemon that could be reps, and you don't want more than 4?

And yet Fire Emblem, a much smaller series, both in sales, and in character pool, can have 4?
>>
Roster was decided in 2012, Sceptile's not relevant anymore, isn't that different from Greninja, and Mewtwo would make a better rep.
>>
>>253757968
>Roster was decided in 2012
You don't actually think that, do you?
>>
>>253755998
Serperior would be better if we need a grass starter

I like gen 3 more than gen 5 but it would be more interesting as a fighter and it would be a way to compensate for the fact that Smash releases end up skipping on gens, so to speak.
>>
>>253757968
Mewtwo is likely just because he was cut from Brawl, and Sakurai likely wants to implement the characters he cut from Brawl and put them in Smash 4 in some fashion.
Also since he was in contact with Gamefreak while they were developing X and Y, they probably told him about Mewtwo having a large role in X and Y by having two mega evolutions as well.
>>
>>253758137
Sakurai stated at the roundtable all he had to work with for Greninja was concept art. He literally picked a pokemon based on looks alone, and spent a day working to make them a moveset. He states the roster was decided before Smash 4 even started getting worked on.
>>
>>253758217
No he wouldn't. Sceptile is literally the best grass starter.
>>
>>253757826
Don't forget that Jiggs still hasn't been confirmed, and her being cut is extremely unlikely. If there will be more Pokemon reps on top of the 4 we have + Jiggs it's most likely going to be Mewtwo making his return.
>>
>>253755998
Because Sceptile a shit.

Im a /VP/oreon and I seriously hope we don't get this faggit, I rather get Pichu and Riolu as Clones than sceptile.

>uses water shuriken, a move in the x/y games
>implying gamefreak didn't tell samurai that he was going to be a starter
>>
>>253758681
Are you really going to nitpick that statement? It just means he didn't have a lot of material/information to work with.
>>
Mewtwo has going for him:

-Was going to be in Brawl but was cut due to time constraints
-Sakurai likely then wants to put him in the next game, which is Smash 4
-Mewtwo plays a important role in X and Y
-The roster was decided BEFORE Smash 4 was even in development. Source: The Roundtable at E3.
-Just like Charizard, he has two mega evolutions.
-During a interview with the developers for X and Y, someone asked them if Mewtwo would return to Smash Bros, and Sakurai suddenly stood up and answered the question when it wasn't directed at him in the first place with "we are thinking about it"

gamefreak tells sakurai about ruby/sapphire remakes. GF suggests one of the hoenn starters. sakurai picks sceptile to complete the water/fire/grass triangle. doesn't sound to far fetched does it?

Yeah sure, gamefreak probably helped him a little on telling Sakurai what he was and what he was capable of. What's your point?

people keep acting like he randomly chose greninja without knowing anything besides the design.

>>
>>253759138
Wrong. Sakurai picked the roster BEFORE X AND Y was barely in development at all. Those remakes came WAY WAY WAY AFTER X AND Y was made probably.
He didn't pick Charizard cause he is fire, and he didn't pick Greninja cause he is water. At the Roundtable, he literally says "I saw this water frog, and thought "hey, he seems pretty cool, what does he do?" Literally chose him based on looks and what he could do.
There is no element triangle.

Mewtwo is completely unimportant in X and Y though. He got two Megas, but all you do is walk into a cave and catch him.
>>
>>253755998
>another fast pokemon
i'd rather get Torterra or Serperior. they'd have more interesting play styles
>>
>>253759752
He's a legendary, and it gets explained in the game how there are two Mewtwo's, one in Kanto and one in the new region. And Mewtwo has two evolutions just like Charizard. Those two are the only ones with TWO mega evolutions.
>>
>>253759694
He didn't randomly chose Greninja. But him and his team picked Greninja based from the concept art of all XY Pokemon. Game Freak just provided the concept art for them.
>>
>>253757382
cause we have one fire starter, and one water starter. and ORAS is coming out soon, people are just putting two and two together, no real hints
>>
>>253759952
There's a scientist that talks about why there are two Mewtwo's in the world, so he has some story. Also, having two mega forms is a big deal, considering the only other one like that is Charizard.

>>
>>253760062
>and it gets explained in the game how there are two Mewtwo's, one in Kanto and one in the new region.
actually, no. That's just an anime thing. The Genesect movie featured a Mewtwo that wasn't the same one as in the 1st movie, complete with a woman voice actor, a different backstory and everything.

Mewtwo's presence in XY isn't really explained at all, it's just chilling in a cave until you find it and battle it
>>
>>253761014


Not him, but its kinda explained, since the pokemon village was said to be a place where pokemon goto to hide from human, most of these pokemon being abused/neglected.


Mewtwo being there was just him running away from human.
>>
>>253761426
well yeah, but there's no explanation as to if this is the same Mewtwo that used to hang out in Cerulean's Unknown Dungeon or if it's somehow a different Mewtwo like how there's now multiple in anime canon.
>>
>there are people on /v/ RIGHT NOW that want Jigglyshit instead of a different Pokemon

Because Sceptile isn't popular and it's a shitty pokemon anyways.

>>253761743
jiggles tuff has been in since the beginning it'd be a crime to remove it just now

even if you don't want Jigglypuff to return, you know it's going to.

There were never any playable Pokemon from Gen 3 or 5. I'd take Sceptile at the cost of Jigglypuff.

As someone already said, the developers themselves stated that they had a slot reserved for a new Pokémon and Game Freak sent them a bunch of reference material. Sakurai picked Greninja because he looked cool and that's it.
That happened when both SSB4 and X/Y were still very early in development and the Hoenn remakes most likely not even considered yet.

If there's any more Pokémon beyond what's been shown, it will be returning ones.

The better question is why would it be in Smash. Why would they choose Sceptile when Blaziken is right there and TPCI obviously favors Blaziken? Because I don't see Sceptile getting a special mega evolution event early, being currently featured in the anime, and getting a bunch of new toys. Do you?

>b-but grass starter!
Completely irrelevant in this case because there isn't a need to make a trio of transforming characters all related to one another. There's no point of "replacing" Ivysaur with a completely unrelated grass starter who doesn't even share any of what Ivysaur did just to have an arbitrary grass starter.

But at the end of the day I don't think any 3rd gen starter is getting into Smash. The 5th and 6th Pokemon will be Jigglypuff and Mewtwo. Jigglypuff has been in 3 games already and I don't see them cutting it while Mewtwo is also a veteran and has gotten two mega evolutions and a recent movie. Sakurai has said that he talks to TCPI and researches movies for the hottest Pokemon. Mewtwo had a movie just last year and they wouldn't have given it two megas if they didn't think it was popular.
>>
Not that I want any more pokemon reps but why not Treecko instead? If pokemon trainer, jigglypuff and pikachu are any indication its that final evolutions are not necessarily mandatory. And more importantly he looks fucking stupid.
>>
>>253755998
Not a Fire emblem character
