Physical attacks should have Newtwo running up and actually, physically hitting them. Like Psycho cut.
I agree, but not with every physical attack.
For example, Psycho Cut doesn't actually make contact. The user forms a blade of psychic energy and slashes the opponent with it. The only thing that makes contact is the ethereal blade, everything is done with the Pokemon's mind.
Same with Earthquake. The attacking Pokemon doesn't actually touch the opponent.
He only has one animation for special attacks, which was disappointing. I'd say they need work, but are still the best Pokemon has ever had. At the very least I would like to see unique animations for physical, special, and signature attacks, as well as good recoil. Also, attacks coming from where they should- for example, fire not sort of spewing from a Pokemon's chest, but their hand or mouth or wherever it should. I'm curious to see what Bite and Tackle look like, too.
