It’s been almost a year since his 14th full character concept Breath of the Wild Link, but the 15th concept and latest installment of Delzethin’s popular Challenger Approaching video series is here at last!
This one is all about Dusk Form Lycanroc along with some of Delzethin’s thoughts on speculation, particularly concerning how details we might not have been aware of can change the odds and how our assumptions on who’s likely to get in frequently are inaccurate as a result. The video goes over many things, including the factors influencing Lycanroc’s chances. Delzethin notes several things in favor of Lycanroc’s inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate such as the timing of the project plan and Lycanroc's prominence in the Pokémon anime along with other noteworthy pieces of information. These collectively challenge the popular opinion that Lycanroc is completely and utterly overshadowed by the fellow Alolan Pokémon Decidueye.
The character concept also goes over a number of other topics, like what Lycanroc’s alternate costumes could be like, what kind of playstyle Lycanroc could have, some moves this unique Rock type Pokémon could use, and it addresses a question I’m sure many of us have asked ourselves: could Lycanroc really grab and use items? To find out more and view an in-depth breakdown of what Lycanroc could be like, and a more detailed explanation on why this character has a solid chance, watch Delzethin’s video below!
