A thought about whether or not a 6th Gen Pokemon will be included...

#1liveman789Posted 3/9/2013 1:33:53 PM
Mario Galaxy was released in 2007, Brawl was released in 2008. None of Mario's stages had to do with Super Mario Galaxy, but there was a Super Mario Sunshine stage and he got FLUDD as a move. This time, I wouldn't be surprised if everything Mario related was based on the Mario Galaxy franchise, as opposed to the upcoming Super Mario Wii U title.

Lucario's movie was released around the time Brawl's development started. Genesect was revealed around the same time Smash Bros 4's development started.

Pokemon X/Y will probably be released, at most, around a year or so before Smash Bros 4.

Does this mean anything? Maybe, maybe not. But it may be worth noting.

All I can say is... I f***ing hope we get a 6th gen Pokemon if it'll keep Genesect out. I know a lot of people thinks that's dumb considering I don't even know what such rep would look like, but I just don't like Genesect...

Obviously we know one prior occurrence is not enough to signal a pattern, but I really hope you're not on to something with this thought.

Like I said, it may or may not mean anything. Though I personally wouldn't mind Genesect as much as I wouldn't mind Mewtwo or a 6th Gen Pokemon.

I know you said may or may and that's why I said we "obviously we know."

At one point I'd relegated myself to being okay with Genesect, back when we were all first discussing his possible inclusion due to the movie, but ever since then I just... I've thought on it and I guess I'd be okay with it, but I'd definitely get whatever reasonable alternate rep you could offer me.

I wouldn't go that far, but if the roster is complete and Sakurai really hasn't seen Gen 6, then Genesect would definitely be the likeliest Pokemon newcomer.

I would guess that this most likely happened because SSBB started development in 2005, so perhaps Sakurai didn't know enough about SMG to give it a stage.

Considering how he doesn't seem to know much more about Gen VI than we do (going by the source below), we could easily get a Gen V Pokemon or Mewtwo instead.

Mostly true TC but Pokemon's newer generation is a bigger deal to grab something from than Mario. Pokemon has new characters that could easily be very good choices for being playable in this game. For a better comparison one should compare the release date of 4th gen Pokemon to Brawl, and you'll see that it's not all that different than 6th gen compared to this game.
