a fighting type.....why doesn't anyone say a fighting type in a fighting game so it would be machamp, primeape, poliwrath......etc
Lucario is a fighting type and is already in Brawl and has been confirmed for SSB4 IIRC
Few (if any) other fighting types have achieved the necessary inclusion for criteria. The Pokemon in the games have all been there for a reason:
Pikachu: Franchise mascot, most recognizable Pokemon to anyone that hasn't played the games Jigglypuff: Apparently a sort of secondary mascot in Japan, very popular there Pichu: The sole outlier; a clone added late in development to buff up the character number a bit. Removed because he was a stupid character. Mewtwo: The most popular legendary of the time; his removal was arguably a mistake, met with large fan outcry Pokemon Trainer: The three starters from the first gen. Easily recognizable and extremely popular / carrying nostalgia for many Lucario: New movie character, a unique in his game, this was Nintendo sort of trying to push the popularity of the Pokemon rather than relying on it.
Machamp and Primeape aren't broadly loved, they're not easily recognizable or standouts in the franchise, they just sort of exist. There are many, many other choices that both fans and the respective companies would consider better.
Mewtwo wasn't removed. A lot of data for him is in Brawl still. Hal Laboratories couldn't finish him because of time constraints caused by the inclusion of Sonic.
Po-tay-to po-tah-to. He wasn't in the game because other characters were prioritized over him and this was arguably a mistake and I would not be surprised to see his triumphant return.
But clarity is good so thanks lol
You have a source on that inclusion of Sonic bit? I know much of Mewtwo's data exists in Brawl but I've never heard that latter bit
I don't remember where I found it, but I remember reading that Sonic was added very late in development. --- I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon. 3DS FC: 5043-2277-6391 - THIEF
The only true answer to this would be the hitmon trio. Think about it! That would be awesome!! As a second choice... Oh Herracross! Can we do that? Come on that would be sick, he starts as a normal fighter, then mega evolves and throws rocks and seeds in every direction as a final smash! Briar would be sick!!! --- 3DS FC: 4227-2154-5185 fighting safari- Mankey, Machoke, Riolu If you add me please PM me
