How about six reps for Pokemon -- One for each gen?

Does Mewtwo's new form even count as 6th Gen?


Yep.

Brawl's roster plus Newtwo with an altered version of Mewtwo's moveset (altered so it fits Newtwo's body shape) would pretty much be the ideal reps for Pokemon.


Is it though? First of all, it's premiering in a film that still revolves around 5th gen. It's not Like each of Deoxys' forms count as separate Pokemon, either.

I wouldn't mind Mewtwo/Newtwo at all, I just don't see it as a 6th Gen rep as long as Newtwo isn't an evolution.

The roster should either be represented this way (though replacing the pokemon trainer with an actual pokemon), with all Gen 1 pokemon, or with all but 1 Gen 1 pokemon with a single newer gen pokemon.

Why? That's the best way to represent a series that is best known by it's first generation.

It's a Pokemon, or Pokemon form, that you can only use in the 6th gen games.

It's 6th gen.

Because it's Mewtwo, you could argue that it's not a 6th gen Pokemon.
But I would argue back, that it would still rep the 6th gen in Smash.

Well I don't live in Japan, but judging by how utterly bat-s*** they still go over all things Pokemon, I'd argue that that whole being best known by gen 1 thing is a distinctly um... not, Japanese thing.

Pokemon is still massively popular, with gen 1 not seemingly holding any sort of special place in their minds, so considering that's where the game is made, I don't see why it matters if most Americans (and westerners in general) stopped their Pokefanning after the first generation.

Technically Game Freak themselves treat him as such and call him a "New Pokemon!" despite being a form of Mewtwo. Mewtwo is first generation, but his new form is 6 generation for being new.

No.

Pokemon has six reps in Brawl, and it's already more than I care for. I'm well aware that Pokemon is one of THE biggest Nintendo franchises. But I don't want that much space taken by them. Mario has six reps if you count the two spinoffs. And even that seems excessive to me, but I'm not about to argue that they don't deserve that space.

But Pokemon doesn't need that many. I don't think so anyways.

I think we can rep the other generations through alt costumes, mainly Pikachu's. Pichu, Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu, Emolga.

Clefairy is best Pokemon and should be an alt costume for Jiggs

If it means Jigglypuff is gone and Pikachu is replaced with Mewtwo I couldn't care less about the rest of the terrible Pokemon following Gen II.
