I’m pretty confident somewhere online I said back in the wiiu days they should cut squirtle/ivysaur for Charizard to give him a full moveset. The switch mechanic is so fast in ultimate I can accept it better, but I still prefer how project m had unique moves for all 3 pokemon and kept them separate.it's really wild in retrospect that Pokemon got 4 unique newcomers in a single game
Even if time allowed for Wario, who'd be counted as a Mario character, in Melee that'd still only be 3 uniques.
You know it's funny, in all my years of speculation, it's almost always the clones and semiclones people (or: a brand new character that i hate ergo it's gotta go) put on the chopping block but even though Pokemon Trainer had a despised mechanic working against him and three totally separate characters no one ever said 'ok get rid of those 2 for blah blah blah". Even Ivysaur, the most expendable Pokemon
Like every single song in SKC is a remix and they're all bangers and i will accept all of them being added to the game.
It's always been a little surprising when we get assists with no associated music. Then again we have a playable Dark Samus with no Vs Dark Samus so....
