Why do people want MORE pokemon in smash?
>>
>>262404293
Smash is fucking lame
>>
They don't. They just want different ones.
>>
I know people hated Pokemon Trainer in Brawl, but who else thinks that was kind of a nice direction to go when it comes to Pokemon reps? No single Pokemon really deserves a slot because of significance except maybe Pikachu, so it all boils down to a popularity contest at that point. The trainer was a good way to represent a specific generation. Sure, it would be a lot of work to do so, but I wouldn't mind them cutting all the Pokemon and just having Red for nostalgia purposes and a more recent-gen trainer as the two Pokemon representatives.
>>
>>262404293
I want all the veterans to be in. I think that adding a character to a game like Smash should be a permanent choice, not a contingent one.
>>

>>
>>262405141
That's silly. At some point the roster will become so large the game will either take forever to make or can never be made.
>>
>>262406661
I'd much rather have only 2-3 newcomers per game than ever have a veteran be cut.
>>
>>262404293
Well really Mewtwo is the only Pokemon besides Pikachu and Jigglypuff (only for being in Smash 64) that deserves to be on the roster.
>>
>>262407751
>mad genwunner detected
>>
>put in Lucario solely because he's popular in Japan
>take out Mewtwo even though he is one of THE most popular Pokemon in Murika

I just don't understand. Nobody in Japan even likes Smash Bros.
>>
For me I always saw Pokemon representation in Smash as really shoddy. As much as I like the Jiggs, it is definitely a jank piece of the problem.

For me, optimal Pokemon Smash repsentation would be:

>Pikachu + a Pokemon from each Gen + Mewto
or
>Pikachu + a starter of each of the 3 types (preferably from different generations for coverage) + Mewtwo

Obviously the first one will be problematic the more generations get added to the franchise. Mewtwo may seem like a surplus, but for me I just think he's iconic as the first major Legendary as well as the one of few antagonistic Pokemon that isn't the size of a titan... Plus I just like the guy and think his fighting style in Smash has good potential.

I'm not mad, Lucario and Greninja are only going to get popular because Nintendo keeps shoving them down our fucking throats so we just have to accept them. I don't really have a problem with Charizard I guess he is okay, but he isn't really needed.
>>
>>262408407
the games sell much better in the US, and the games are a much bigger part of US gaming culture.
>>
>>262406732
But then nothing changes. It becomes boring when you have to play against the same characters game after game after game.
>>
>>262408910
it's a fucking once-per-console game. it doesn't get boring.
>>
>>262409204
My ass it doesn't get boring. Melee and Brawl both got boring after time. Don't even say that playing Melee doesn't get boring.
>>
>>262409702
Brawl doesn't get boring and it's the best Smash game so far
>>
>>262408857
That is completely and utterly unrelated to "Nobody in Japan even likes Smash Bros." and I'm not sure why you're using it as an argument.
>>
>>262404434
then go

>>262408587
That's the same thing that happened with Mewtwo. What's the problem?
>>
>>262404293
>Smash Bros is made by Nintendo
>Pokemon is the most popular Nintendo franchise
What do you expect?
>>
>>262412669
Second most popular, Mario is still somewhat more popular.
>>
>>262404970
Very few people hated the Pokemon Trainer

>People actually count the Trainer as 3 reps instead of one
Those are the worst faggots. They probably think the Mii counts as 3 reps, or Rosalina and Luma as two.
>>
>>262413342
People consider him three because "slots" isn't so much a literal slot as it is the time that goes into creating and balancing an entirely unique character. Yes, he was three "slots" just as Zelda and Sheik were each one. Having one copied move that shuffles between the three does not mean they're suddenly all one character.
>>
It's not about more, but making sure the ones that deserve to get in get in.

Pikachu = face of the franchise to the kids. Automatic.

Jigglypuff = not so popular over here but beloved in Japan. I don't like it but I understand it.

Lucario = was being forced into the game heavily to cross-promote at the time Brawl came out, admittedly is on par with Mewtwo's popularity now. If Mewtwo and Lucario are both in, I'm fine with it. But Lucario doesn't deserve to be in OVER Mewtwo, hence the backlash at him from Brawl.

Charizard = yep, badass factor is there plus the megas. No gripes here.

Greninja...this is the one example of a Pokemon that shouldn't be in. He wasn't even fully conceptualized in his own world - Sakurai was shown concept art, asked if he could be put in, and they just had to hope he became popular later.

Smash should be for established characters who are majorly important to their various franchises. Pikachu is. Mewtwo is. Lucario (unfortunately) is. Jigglypuff (in Japan) is. Charizard is. Greninja shouldn't be.
>>
>>262406428
I want to marry a Braixen.
>>
>>262414059
Charizard is the most popular Gen I starter, Greninja is the most popular Gen VI starter. This is the reason each of them was included, I don't know how you can feasibly argue Charizard deserves the spot while Greninja is an abomination. If you want to get into arguments like that, Greninja is far more deserving because he represents the latest generation and Charizard is yet more Gen I pandering.
>>
>>262414741
Greninja was always planned to be included, even before the launch of X and Y.
To be honest, Greninja's design is a lot more appealing than the rest of the fully evolved starters. They probably knew it was going to be the most popular because it's quite obvious.
>>
>>262414059
>>262415739
They should pick characters based on their move potential and how unique they are among the cast. Genenji makes a better water rep than blastoise or really any of the other water starters.

Does it matter they threw him in before the game dropped? THey're not stupid. They knew he was going to be popular striaght out the gate.
>>
Because Mewtwo deserves it.

Hell, fuck Pikachu, that dirty rat. No one wants him at all. Him and Greninja can go fuck themselves.

Pokemon should just be put down at this point anyway. Anything after Gen 3 isn't worth playing
>>
>>262415739
>paying homage is pandering
I guess most of the roster is pandering then.
>>
>>262417401
That shit taste.

>>262417401
>Gen 3

You mean garbage where a ton of pokemon were fucking useless because no phys/special split?
>>
>>262417401
>and on your left, we can see a majestic nostalgiafag
>>
>>262417860
Not that person, but I personally like the graphics. Sure, there's no special/physical split but it beats looking at the ugly billboarding.
>>
>>262418798
I should mention that I mean only gen 3 for that. Gen 1 and 2 had pretty bad graphics for their systems. Gen 3 wasn't that great for the gameboy advance but it is a lot better in comparison to it's predecessors.
>>
People actually played Mewtwo.

I'm not a fan of the Charizard.
>>
Can we argue about how there's a lot of fucking Fire Emblem characters these days and Ness got cut?
>>
>>262419102
>Ness got cut
No fucking way.
>>
>>262419102
Ness wasn't that good. The best thing he had was getting back onto the stage with PK Thunder, but that also injures you.
>>
>>262419102
Yea, too many Final Fantasy looking faggots in smash
>>
>there are people over the age of 13 who still like pokemon
Good fucking god.
>>
>>262414741
You could also argue that without the success of Gen 1, there wouldn't be a Gen 6 for Greninja to come from.

>>262417014
Over another starter? I could feasibly understand it IF Gen 6 had been out a fair bit before the roster was being decided and he'd at least earned his spot through fandom at that point.
>>
>>262419102
I'm happy with Robin, honestly, and I have not even played Awakening. Lucina can fuck right off, but she probably took very little time to get in so whatever.
>>
What Pokemon's resps should have been in each Smash games:

64: Pikachu, Mewtwo
Melee: Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, Pichu
Brawl: Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, Lucario
4: Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, Greninja

There is no space for disagreement.
>>
>>262419384
I actually wouldn't mind at all if they cut about half the FE dudes (maybe keep Marth and Avatar) and then threw in a character like Cecil, Terra, or Locke.
Of course that will never happen though.
>>
>>262419743
That's a poor argument and could be equally applied to a lot of characters. I'll allow you to have the last word, however. so respond to this as you will and I will not be responding anymore, because I can tell this would be tiresome.

HOLY SHIT

NINTENDO'S TWO BIGGEST FRANCHISES?

HAVE THE MOST CHARACTERS IN THE NINTENDO CROSSOVER GAME?

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

FUCKING WOOOOOOOOOOW

I AM BOTH COMPLETELY BAFFLED AND IRRATIONALLY ANGRY
>>
SSBM should have an intro like MK:DA, with Pikachu getting its neck snapped.
Then it is not in the game for the rest of the game, and there's only one or two other Pokemon featured.
>>
>>262406183
Mewtwo is remembered by everyone, anon. He's appeared in games fairly often and Nintendo / Gamefreak push him like crazy. Not as much as Lucario or Charizard, but still
>>
>>262420145

>Only 1 non-Gen 1 in SSB4
>No Lucario in SSB4
>No Jigglypuff
>resps
>>
>>262417401
haha yeah gen 1 is the best XD

Should be one rep for each gen. Too bad that won't happen because of gen 1 dicksuckers.

Why the fuck shouldn't more pokemon be in?

Because a psychic is better than another anime swordsman.
>>
>>262417401
You can go fuck yourself. Pikachu has been and always will be the protag of the anime and the most iconic of all pokemon.
Pikachu was one of the original 8 starting characters in Smash 64. He has precedence going all the way back.
Mewtwo was in a movie or two and is known as being the most powerful Gen I pokemon.
Pikachu deserves it more, but Lucario shouldn't be in at all. He should be cut for Mewtwo.
What's funny is Jigglypuff is almost guaranteed in while Mewtwo is unlikely.
>>
>>262421408
The fuck is your problem?
Where is this Pikachu hate coming from?
>>
>>262422002

Pika's the entire series mascot, and jiggly is a smash staple now. I think it's hard to count them as pure gen 1 reps anymore.

I'd like to see playable gen 2, 3, or 5 representation before Mewtwo.
>>
I'm honestly surprised that there hasn't been an all pokemon brawler.
>>
>>262413342
Miis are 9 slots, because they're three characters with three custom moves each.
>>
>>262413021
Only because they shit out a thousand mario games a year.
>>
Any newcomer put in Smash instantly gets infinitely more porn drawn of them.

On that basis what character would you want most?
>>
>>262425367
Ridley so long as it's not all gay shit.
>>
>>262425367
Ridley x Rosalina

Okay buddy...

>>262426487
There's enough of every pokemon for everyone.
>>
>>262413342
Sakurai counts characters by entire movesets.
This is why he counted Sheik and Zelda as two characters, and Samus and Zero Suit Samus as two characters.
Also, yes, Mii Fighter counts as three characters based on movesets.
Brawler has a moveset.
Swordfighter has a moveset.
Gunner has a moveset.
They also each have their own three custom B moves as well, just like every character in Smash 4 has.
>>
>>262426647
But is there enough everyone for every pokemon?
>>
>>262426883
Depends, what is your stance on the number of worlds and universes?

>>262426883
Probably not.

/v/ is hipster central and Pikachu is one of the biggest video game mascots out there, it has to be hated by default.
