    Who or What is Regigigas?
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Height: 12'02
    Weight: 925.9 lbs
    Type: Normal
    Gender: Genderless
    Regigigas, the Colossal Pokemon.
    According to legend, Regigigas would tow entire continents with rope.
    It is also stated that Regigigas created three Pokemon in its image with special rocks, ice, and magma.
    Its special ability, Slow Start, cuts its Physical Attack and Speed in half for the first five turns it is out.
    It crushes enemies with its signature move, Crush Grip, doing more damage the more HP the target has left.

    Regigigas first appeared in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, located at the Snowpoint Temple in Snowpoint City. To awaken it from its slumber, the player must bring the three Legendary Golems, Regice, Regirock, and Registeel, to it.
    A Regigigas has appeared in 1 Pokemon Movies, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, and another Regigigas was the major focus of the episode Pillars of friendship, both being helpful to the protagonist.
    Diamond from the Pokemon Adventures manga and Hareta from the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga both have captured Regigigas while trying to save them from the evil Team Galactic.


    Pros and Cons
    Pros to Regigigas as a Candidate
    - It's big and heavy. Tt could easily be designed to be the biggest and heaviest character.
    - In game, Regigigas is a naturally bulky Pokemon, having a its base HP, Defense, and Special Defense stats at 110.
    - Slow Start could give it a very interesting mechanic.
    - Additionally, once Slow Start has passed, Regigigas has a respectible base Attack stat of 160 and base Speed of 100.
    - It has a wide array of physical, special, and support moves to choose from and a signature move.
    - It's a legendary Pokemon.
    - Ash Ketchum doesn't own one or anything related to it. The only other playable Pokemon that can say that are Mewtwo and Jigglypuff.
    - It appears in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, giving it some relevance, especially considering its three charges, Regice, Regirock, and Registeel originated in the original Ruby and Sapphire.
    - More characters that aren't clones are always nice.

    Cons to Regigigas as a Candidate
    - It would most likely be very slow and a big target to hit, in addition to being heavy.
    - We already have a representative from the Sinnoh region, Lucario.
    - Including Mewtwo, we already have 6 Pokemon representatives in this game.
    - We already have four veteran Pokemon, Pichu, Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Pokemon Trainer, waiting for their chance to return.
    - Opposed to other Legendary Trio Masters like Ho-Oh, Lugia, and Rayquaza, it doesn't have any really plot relavance to the game's stories. Its more like a hidden character, considering you need three other Pokemon to battle it.


    Gameplay and Moveset Ideas
    Height: 6/5
    Weight: 6/5
    Jump: 2/5, 4/5 when meter is empty
    Fall: 5/5, 3/5 when meter is empty
    Power: 2/5, 4/5 when meter is empty
    Defence: 4/5
    Speed: 1/5, 4/5 when meter is empty

    Special Mechanic
    Slow Start
    When Regigigas first enters the stage, it will have a meter above its damage percentage that is full. Over time this meter will empty, taking a total of 30 seconds to empty. When it is completely empty, Regigigas will let out a small burst of energy, lightly damaging any enemy near it, and have an incredible boost to its attack power, speed, and jump height for 15 seconds. Once those 15 seconds are up, Regigigas will let out another burst of energy and its meter will fill up again.

    Crush Grip: Default. Regigigas will lunge forward, grab a target, and squeeze them. This moves does more damage the more damage Regigigas has over its target. Caps at 100%. If the target can't be grabbed (like a boss or minor enemy), this move will damage them for the default amount. Lunges farther in the air but will delay at the end of the animation.

    Knock Off
    : Custom 1. Regigigas will lunge forward and swipe. If this hits a target that is holding an item, Regigigas will steal it.

    Brick Break
    : Custom 2. Regigigas will charge forward and swipe. Is chargable. Once fully charged, it can break any shield. Doesn't move when in the air.

    Iron Head: Default. Regigigas charges forward, headbutting. When used in the air, Regigigas lunges forward, head first, traveling farther but leaving it helpless afterwards.

    : Custom 1. Regigigas will enter a defensive stance. When hit, he will leave behind a substitute and rush forward. The play can input either up or down to effect the trajectory. As opposed to Greninja's, this move doesn't damage. Regigigas is helpless afterwards.

    Wide Guard
    : Custom 2. Regigigas will put up a protective barrier and charge forward. Has super armor but doesn't damage enemies. Leave Regigigas helpless afterwards.

    Rock Throw: Default. Regigigas will stretch its arms up, materialize a boulder, leap into the air, then throw it downward, in front of it. Damages when Regigigas leaps, doing more damage closer to the boulder. When the boulder is thrown, it will do more damage on the side it is away from Regigigas. Leaves it helpess afterwards.

    Stealth Rock: Custom 1. Regigigas will leap into the air and release a barrage of tiny stones around it, lightly damaging any enemy they hit.

    Rock Polish: Custom 2. Regigigas will leap into the air and increadable speeds. Travels far and fast but doesn't damage.

    Icy Wind: Default. Regigigias will let loose a gust of chilling air all around itself, slowing down enemies that are hit for 5 seconds. Reflects projectiles. Can't be held.

    Confuse Ray: Custom 1. Regigigas will let loose a wave of energy around itself, spinning any enemy and relfecting any projectile it hits.

    Snore: Custom 2. Regigigas will (some how) release a giant snore, placing any enemy near Regigigas to sleep. Enemies will sleep longer the more damage they have. Does not reflect projectiles.

    Final Smash
    Awakening: Regice, Regirock, and Registeel will appear around Regigigas, awakening its powers. Regigigas's meter will freeze to where it was before the Final Smash but will recieve its boosts during the duration of the Final Smash. Additionally, the three Golems will stay on the stage and launch off their most powerful attacks at other fighters. At the end, Regigigas and its charges will all shoot off Hyper Beams.

    Neutral: Regigigas will use Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, and Ice Punch, then leap into the air and finish off with a Body Slam. When the target is at a high damage percentage, Ice Punch will freeze them for 1 second. Body Slam does high damage but isn't effected the stat boost Regigigas receives when its meter is empty.
    Side Tilt: Regigias will lift its hand up, then swipe downward.
    Upward Tilt: Regigias will face upward and let loose a small energy discharge from its eyes.
    Downward Tilt: Regigigas will sit down and kick both its legs out.

    Side Smash: Regigigas will fall forward, preforming Heavy Slam, then get back up. Hits when it falls, it slams on the ground, and when it gets up.
    Upward Smash: Rigigigas will punch upward with Focus Punch.
    Downward Smash: Regigigas will preform Gravity, pulling down and damaging any enemies nearby.

    Neutral: Regigigas will flail its limbs around.
    Forward: Regigigas will lift both its arms up, then swipe downward.
    Backward: Regigigas will stretch both its arms out and do a spin. Damages at both sides.
    Upward: Regigigas will release a discharge of energy out from its eyes upward.
    Downward: Regigigas will face downward, hold out its fist, and rocket downward. Acts as a meteor smash. Stronger around its fist.

    Similiarly to the Pokemon Metagame, Regigigas playstyle revolves around its natural bulk and stalling til it can go all out when Slow Start passes.
    Regigigas is a Stone Wall type of character, focusing on being bulky and slow while chipping away at enemies' health until it can KO when its meter is empty.

    Thank you for your time. :D
