Gee, doesn't this sound familiar? Charizard confirmed cut in Smash 5 and DLC for Smash 6
>>
We don't need more speculation threads for another 4 years, anon. Fuck off with your stupid theories
>>
>>288366202
The theory isn't the point of the post. The point is that SSB4 Charizard is getting the exact same treatment as Melee Mewtwo did back in the day.

>kept in one of the most unfun characters
>took out two of the most fun characters
GREAT fucking job, hackurai. Honestly they should have all been taken out and then had a Gen 6 version put it: Chespin - Braixen - Greninja.
>>
>>288367893
Fun moveset =/= deservingness for Smash.

Also, Ivysaur was even WORSE than Charizard in Brawl. And they aren't even full characters, just extensions of Pokemon Trainer that you're forced to use as a team rather than specializing in one.
>>
Who wants Charizard to be cut? I don't. Even if he's not SSS tier I still enjoy playing as him in Smash. Definitely more enjoyable than Bowser.

>>288367893

Personally I thought Squirtle was the least fun.
>>
>>288368254
Mostly Charizard haters and butthurt trainerfags who miss being forced to learn 3 separate movesets and not always being able to use the right one in every situation.
>>
>>288367893
I'd rather have chesnaught, because you'd be taking out one of what little heavyweights the game has

You people treat Smash as some sort of abstract "hall of fame" for Nintendo games, when it's a fucking video game and subject to the same standards as anything else.

people never wanted mewtwo cut, that's why there was such an outrage for brawl

But Mewtwo's moveset wasn't disappointing. It was just too weak. Charizard's is just plain boring.

>>
>>288367893
The only reason Pokemon Trainer and the others were cut was because MUH TRANSFORMATIONS and the 3DS version ruining the potential Smash U had.

Ivysaur, Squirtle, and Climbers are all causalities. Charizard was only kept due to his popularity.
>>
>>288368743
IIRC there was a petition to have Mewtwo removed from the series because he was too weak compared to how he was in Pokemon.

>>288369074
>LOL you don't worship cutesy and underappreciated things and hate edgy and popular things like the rest of /v/!
>>
>>288367893
Fuck that.
Chestnaught, Delphox, and Greninja should all be in. They're varied enough for it to work
>>
Didn't his amiibo only have 1 month of production too? It's crazy that a Pokemon wouldn't be the main focus of an amiibo line up that consists heavily on Fire Emblem characters.

>weakest
>takes two abilities from Mario (one being fucking FLUDD of all things)
>SQUIRTLE SQUIRTLE SQUIRTLEEEEEE

Squirtle was the worst.

>>288369145

Transformations were shit, I'm glad they're gone. They were especially shit for Pokemon Trainer because of that hidden stamina system.

>>
>>288369145
It's actually difficult to say. If Pokemon Trainer had returned, it's pretty likely he'd have Red's Origins voice and design, stamina/type effectiveness would have been removed so that you can truly main one of his team individually, and his FS would still be Mega Charizard X.

That wouldn't have been half bad, but I sometimes see trainerfags actually WANTING the stamina system to come back.

>>288369279
According to a French retailer, he and Wario are each getting 3 times the number of units that each of the rest of the wave is getting (at least in Europe).

>>288369413
People like to play as fast characters and /v/ likes cute things, that's all. Also, Squirtle was actually the most viable of PT's team, Charizard was mediocre, and Ivysaur was horrible.
>>
>>288365953
>Remove Charizard

Honestly, for a franchise with so many reps, it sure is represented poorly.

>>
>>288369507
"Edgy" isn't a bad thing. If a certain black hedgehog and his godawful game didn't exist, then /v/ probably wouldn't hate it so much.
>>
>>288369595
>remove Jiggs

Fuck no. Jigglypuff is here to stay.
>>
>>288369413
Squirtle actually has an air game, shitty a character as he was. Ivysaur and Charizard are just generic zoning characters like the other 90% of Brawl's cast.
>>
>>288369595
At least you're removing Jiggs, unlike some other people who suggest Zard and Mewtwo being cut. As long as we have Blaziken (the most popular non-genwun starter and a better fit for Smash than Charizard), that wouldn't be a bad idea.

>>288369690
I fucking hate Jigglypuff, and the only reason why I want the original 12 to stay is so that Captain Falcon has no risk of getting cut himself.
>>
Project M Charizard was a lot of fun...
>>
>>288369595
>represented poorly
>pikachu, charizard, mewtwo, and lucario are some of the most popular pokemon ever to exist and have unique movesets

jigglypuff is the only odd one out, it's only in because it was in the first smash
>>
>>288369595
I've always thought this. Pokemon is represented horrendously in Smash.
>>
>>288369595
Jiggs is legacy and here to stay.

Gen's II and III lacked anything that would fit into Smash and remains iconic; IV has Lucario like him or hate him, and he's popular. V could use Zoroark, he's popular. Greninja was a great pick for VI, although he was likely chosen before the games were released and it's luck he wound up being the most popular starter.
>>
>>288369690
>>288369772
I actually don't WANT to get rid of Jiggs, but it has no chance of beating out Pikachu in popularity, and Pika is the most popular Pokemon. Blaziken is awesome, but I have no idea who I'd want as 2nd gen or 5th gen reps.
>>
>>288369893
>Zoroark
>popular
Maybe if you're a furry. That thing bombed at being the new Lucario.
>>
>>288369893
Gen III has Blaziken, who's an extremely popular starter and a Fire/FIGHTING type. He was already heavily requested for Brawl and became relevant again for XY and ORAS.

He'll stay relevant for longer than Greninja will, and really should have been in the roster in order to represent the gens in a more balanced way and advertise ORAS.
>>
>>288369852
Original 12 are a lock is the only Smash trend that fits anymore.

Doc and Mewtwo have proven cut characters can return
Ice Climbers prove appearing in multiple games in a row doesn't keep you from the chopping block
Lucario / Ike show being new and getting "overshadowed" by newer games doesn't mean you'll be cut

And given all of Sakurai's bullshit, Original 12 is the only thing you can bet on in Smash anymore.
>>
>>288370063
It's a Japanese game. Jiggs was always popular in Japan, you doofus.
>>
>>288370074
I stopped playing when BW came out, so I didn't know.

>>288370096
Yeah I admit I forgot about him.
>>
>>288370146
I know that Jiggs is popular in Japan, but do honestly think it's more popular than Electro-rat?
>>
>>288365953
Pls no, he's my main.
>>
>>288370376
Same here. He's only one of my secondaries and I agree that he isn't a good character, but cutting him would be a terrible idea.

>>288370301

this, people parrot this shit without realizing jigglypuff hasn't been relevant in a long time. it's only in because it was in smash 64 and sakurai doesn't like cutting characters
>>
>>288370802
Jigglypuff is worse than generic furbait. She's an annoying cutemon that only appeals to Meleefags and little girls and has no appealing qualities whatsoever other than being overly cute (which Pikachu already covers) and being good in Melee.

Chesnaught is only known for Chesninja shipping and Delphox managed to be unpopular while being a furrygirl and a fire starter.
>>
>>288371429
Man, don't make me choose between my two favorite Gen 2 Pokemon.
Serperior maybe, but the other two can stay Pokeball Pokemon. Hydreigon would be another good choice.

It's like cutting Dan for Dark Ryu or something.
>>
>>288373021
We're going to have 6 Pokemon once Mewtwo releases. What's the big deal?
>>288372819
Victini is probably the best gen 5 rep, much as I hate to say it. It's a legendary, isn't super what the fuck huge, and V-create could be its final smash. Haxorus is cool too.
>>
>>288372440
>greninja
Kill yourself. Chesnaught is a better choice faggot
>>
>>288373117
why should he be in the game in the first place? people that like jigglypuff and people that like dan are the same kinds of people

>>288373517
Its too many fucking pokemon, that's what.
>>
>>288373606
In terms of what? Popularity? Greninja is neocharizard and Chesnaught is only known for being the Pokemon with lots of ChesnaughtXGreninja porn.

>>288373868
No, chesnaught in general fits the mtoif better than greninja.
You're fucking retarded

>>288374434
No. Don't know why you even brought it up.

and before someone goes, "b-but mario is their highest selling IP!", pokemon is right behind it

>>288374434
The Koopalings are alts. I'd hardly count them.

>>288375624

>>288377243
Pokemon reps should be Pikachu and one Pokemon from each gen.
Also,
>Skull Kid
>>
>>288377361
>>288377890

adds another major character (major in the sense he was the partial main antagonist
for one of the more popular games) to a the roster, is a fan favorite

>>Pokemon reps should be Pikachu and one Pokemon from each gen.
no because not every gen is important enough or has popular enough pokemon to rep that gen

most of the pokemon are just dull NPC creatures that serve no other purpose than to add filler to the gen,
the ones in Smash have had some relevance to them outside of the games, (TV, Movies)
The only other one i can think of would be the Genesect thats about it, i mean you have the other Legendaries like Lugia and Entei, but the wouldnt fit in as playable characters (imo, i could be wrong)
>>
>>288378453
I'd rather have Ghirahim.
