Oh boy, another roster!

#1pokemonynstynPosted 2/26/2013 6:01:12 PM
This one is sort of a blend between my hopes and what I think is likely, so there are a few iffier choices but also a few dropped. My question is not how likely do you think this roster is, but what would you think of the roster if it were the final selection?

Mario
Luigi
Peach
Bowser

Paper Mario
Yoshi
Wario
Waluigi

Donkey Kong
Diddy Kong
King K. Rool

Link
Zelda / Sheik
Ganondorf (decloned)
Toon Link
Ghirahim

Pikachu
Pokémon Trainer
Jigglypuff
Mewtwo
6th Gen Pokémon
Lucario (DLC)

Kirby
Meta Knight
King Dedede

Fox
Falco
Wolf

Marth
Ike
Chrom
Roy (DLC)

Samus
Ridley

Ness
Lucas

Pit
Palutena

Captain Falcon
Black Shadow (Ganondorf's old moves)

Ice Climbers
Takamaru
Mr. Game & Watch
R.O.B.

Olimar
Little Mac
Chibi-Robo
Isaac
Shulk

Snake
Sonic
Mega Man

Total: 50
Total (DLC): 52

I'd get rid of Paper Mario, Waluigi, and Ghirahim. I'd also give Black Shadow a unique moveset and drop Ganondorf's current Melee/Brawl moveset entirely.

Also, Waluigi would technically be a Mario character, not a Wario character (since he's never made any significant appearances in the Wario games).

Honestly, being a canvas for Ganondorf's old moveset is the only way I see Black Shadow realistically making the Smash cut, and to a lesser degree, Black Shadow being there to scoop up Ganondorf's old moves is the only way I see Ganondorf getting an original moveset.

Yoshi and Paper Mario aren't Wario characters either. That's just the Mario spinoff list. :P

-1 for 50(52) characters, that's too many
-1 for 5(6) Pokemon reps, they don't deserve to have the most space on the roster
-1 for Black Shadow, we don't need another strictly racing character with a made up moveset, especially when that moveset is a clone of another.

So I'd give this a 7/10

Pokemon is one of Nintendo's most successful series and it's been around for years. I don't see why it isn't deserving of a lot of reps, especially when it has so many options when it comes to playable reps.

we don't need


If I had a quarter for every time a Smash fan said this, I'd be richer than Bill Gates.

Aside from Waluigi, Black Shadow, and Chibi-Robo this is a pretty awesome roster! One of the better ones ive seen and not too unreasonable.

Yes, it's ONE OF the most successful series, not THE most successful. If this were the way they went about including Pokemon reps, half the roster will be Pokemon by Smash Bros 6.

Cuts are probably necessary, as much as I hate them. Lucario had an awesome moveset and gimmick but he's probably first on the chopping block.

Which is why Lucario is DLC and not a full-fledged character. Besides, when one series has about eight equally likely and deserving candidates, including five (plus one DLC) is perfectly reasonable. Zelda gets five, Mario gets however many you wish to count (4, 5, 6, 8, or even 11. Some crazies still count DK as Mario) so Pokémon getting five is entirely possible, and then it's undoubtedly one of the most likely series to get a DLC character.

Are these 8 including the one already in Brawl?
