  • Who are you and what did you do with the reporter
    I know ya like the Reporter and Wrestler, so how do you feel about their spirit battle? Not even a Rhythm Heaven fan, but I love this spirit battle. Pikachu really should've been replaced with Incineroar though.

    Haven't played ultimate yet, but I am aware of the Spirit battle, and it's just... perfect

    Using Yuri as the stand-in for the Reporter was very funny, and a very nice touch

    As for Pikachu, The Rhythm Heaven Wrestler is likely based on a luchador a Mexican wrestler, which is likely why they went with Pikachu Libre rather then Incineroar, who's based more on American and Japanese wrestling. It weirded me out still, but it made snse

    Inori Aizawa is a pretty obscure Microsoft character.
    Microsoft decided that it would be a good a idea to make Internet Explorer the subject of an anime inspired short.
    Inori Aizawa is supposed to be the embodiment of Internet Explorer...
    She really hasn't appeared much since her 2013 debut

    I know this joke has been done to death, but I don't care, I never saw it coming
    Can't wait to finally play as the announcer, himself... lol
    I didn't know you can follow someone on Smashboards ! Thanks.
    If you follow someone, you can see their posts or something ?
    Happy 20th birthday, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!
    You left a pretty big impact on gaming for both the industry, and gamers like me.
    Thank you for giving us such an amazing adventure.
    Hey! I noticed you just followed me, Thank you! I always see you on the general discussion thread since I mostly lurk and barely post stuff, but I didn't expect this lol. btw I like your profile pic, is it from LGPE?
    Kon'nichiwa! Thanks for the follow! This old lady is among friends here and the more the merrier. ShinyLegendary used to be my best friend but he does not appreciate me. Who needs him anyway when there are countless members here to befriend.

    Sa, I shall return the favor right now...
    I've been away for a while and the latest alert I get is that a fellow RH fan has followed me! Thanks bud

    Also, did ya know Fruit Basket's in Ultimate's soundtrack now? I hope this means some more representation is on the way....

    Hey, no problem.
    Yes, I heard about Fruit Basket's music being added. Pretty excited about it
    We also have 6 confirmed RH Spirits. Karate Joe, Chorus Kids, Munchy Monk, Baxter & Forthington, Wrestler & Reporter, and the Sumo Bros...
    Already, a lot of content for RH fans to be excited about...
    Still hoping for a stage or character for DLC, of course
    Thoughts on the Detective Pikachu Trailer

    So... I think it's time to give my personal thoughts on the trailer for Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

    Positives
    Pikachu in particular looks really nice
    Love the noir tone
    Justice Smith's acting is great
    Nice to see a lot of references and callbacks to the games
    I'm glad that they have Pokemon from basically every generation, and they didn't just stick to Gen I
    Ryan Reynolds does a pretty good job as Pikachu
    That Mr. Mime interrogation gag was pretty hillarious

    Negatives
    Pokemon like Jiglypuff and Emolga look weird
    Not too sure who it's trying to appeal to... Pokemon as a franchise is appealing to kids, but there's a bit of an adult edge in the trailer too...
    It's coming out the week after Avengers 4...


    Overall, I'm cautiously optimistic when it comes to the movie... We'll just have to wait until May 10th, 2019 to find out if it's actually good or not
    Final DLC Predictions
    Now that we know the DLC has been picked and that Nintendo chose the characters, it's time to make some predictions....

    Slime (Dragon Quest): Dragon Quest is huge in Japan, In fact, I beileve it'dd the biggest Jappanese video game franchise to not be in Smash yet. Slime is the mascot of the series and if Skaurai can make a moveset based on a Piranha Plant, he can easily make one for Slime.

    Steve (Minecraft): This is gonna be one controversial addition, especially to all you Banjo fans out there, but no doubt about it, Steve seems very likely as our first western third party character. Minecraft has been on Nintendo Consoles for only 3 years now, and it already has some deep Nintendo ties... Nintendo seems to like promoting it a lot, a Creeper New 3DS, and the Switch / Wii U versions being the only non Xbox versions to have the Microsoft packs that include both Master Chief and Banjo. Steve could also make a fun character, using his crafting system to make some better weapons and armor during the fight.

    Katalina (Granblue): You thought Steve was gonna be controversial huh? Wait til Katalina gets in. Hailing from a massively successful Japanese mobile game, at first it seems strange to let Katalina in of all characters in Smash, but when you remember that Nintendo owns stock in Granblue's creator, CyGames, and both collaborated to make Draglia Lost, her inclusion starts to make sense. It definitely helps that she has a pretty neato design, and she would be the first ice user to get in since the Ice Climbers...

    Unrepresented Nintendo series: So... call this cheating, but I'm just not sure which one they'd choose... I can see 2 likely options though. Either Twintelle or Min Min from ARMS, or one of the many colorful characters from Rhythm Heaven. It would make for some great promotion, and It'd be nice to have another Nintendo Franchise Represented...

    Edelgard (Fire Emblem): "Another Fire Emblem character? Ugggghhhh!" You say that, but Edelgard kinda makes sense. Aside from promoting Fire Emblem: Three Houses, she could also make for a pretty character. Wielding an axe alongside a sword, and standing out compared to the other Fire Emblem characters on the roster is gonna make her quite the character. A controversial one, but a pretty great one regardless...
    My final thoughts on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate base roster Newcomers

    Inklings: Look really fun to use, and seem really unique 9/10
    Daisy: Still surprised that she's in, but that makes it even better 8/10
    Ridley: If game play footage is anything to go by, he's gonna play a little bit like a Xenomorph... neat 5/10
    Simon: He looks true to the original games, and his whip looks great 9/10
    Ricther: Nice to see a memetic legend joining the ranks of Smash 9/10
    Chrom: Why wasn't he in Smash 4 in the first place? 7/10
    Dark Samus: Samus... But dark... 6/10
    King K. Rool: Eh, never really cared for him to be honest 3/10
    Isabelle: Having played Villager in Smash 4 a lot, I'm looking forward to see the differences she can bring to the table 9/10
    Ken: The one echo that stands above the rest... I like Ken more than Ryu anyways, also being the og echo... Makes sense to me 10/10
    Incineroar: The unique newcomer I am most hyped about. Not only was Litten my starter in Sun and Moon, but he looks fun and expressive, and everything...I'm glad that there are more than just fan favorite additions. Another thing to note about Incineroar is that he is voiced by the late Unshō Ishizuka (well known for roles such as the
    Japanese voices of both Professor Oak and Heihachi), who passed away in August of this year... Incineroar is kind of a swan song role for him. Making his inclusion even more bitter sweet. So yeah, out off all of the newcomers, Incineroar is easily my most anticpated newcomer of the whole bunch. Can't wait to try him out 10/10

    Overall, it's an 8/10 roster...
    There's only like one inclusion I don't really like, and would have really liked a Rhythm Heaven character, but other than that, pretty great if you ask me...

    As for Piranha Plant, he's a 9/10. I like joke characters, so he seems right up my ally...

    It is my opinion...
    I'm happy for their fans, but they just don't call to me personally...
    I usually prefer characters with unique attributes over fan requested ones...

    I just don't understand how you give Simon Belmont a 9/10 because he was true to the games. But King K. Rool's moveset gives a reference to every appearance even his most vague ones.

    Simon looks fun to me... Can't really say the same for K .Rool
