You can use this thread to discuss what Pokemon characters you want to see as DLC in Smash Ultimate. Remember, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, so no flaming.

Here's a list of some of the support threads for various Pokemon characters. This list will not include any human characters or joke threads. Bolded characters are ones that are confirmed as Poke Ball Pokemon:

Onix and Genesect. I understand why Onix isn't high on anybody's list (except mine), but Genesect seems like a shoo-in but nobody ever brings it up. it's got a laser on it's back, can transform into a hoverboard and looks like nothing we've seen (playable) in Smash before!

Although he is confirmed to be a Pokeball Pokemon. But I love to see Darkrai as a DLC.

I would love Croagunk because he is in Pokken Tournament under TWO roles, a playable role and a support role.
Toxicroak has been one of my fave pokemon but Croagunk is just as cool

Pokémon series has so many good choices!

My most-wanted Pokémon character is obviously Meowth. My second choice is Team Rocket which is basically Jessie and James staying in the background like Pokémon Trainer and they take turns summoning their Pokémon to team up with Meowth. :052::023::109:

Thanks, this is honestly better than the OP and I wonder why he doesn't copy-paste your list into it.

Anyone else think they might pull a Corrin and add a rep from gen 8? Next gen is right around the corner, so I think it's somewhat plausible.

It all depends. Sakurai didn't just want a $5 ad for an upcoming game and had to be shown how Corrin could be a unique character. The game's also lacking an Alola stage and any of the songs USUM introduced, and if spirits deconfirm, Decidueye, Primarina, and Lycanroc aren't.

Hawlucha was the wrestling Pokemon that I've wanted in Smash during Smash 4 speculation. It's unfortunate Hawlucha never made it to Smash, well for me at least because I think Incineroar's design looks ugly (neat smash character though).

I want Wobuffet. Unironically
One of my Team Rocket ideas was a Meowth and Wobbuffet team.

Wobbuffet cannot fight. It can only counter attacks and reflect projectiles. Meaning Wobbuffet cannot throw the first punch. That’s where Meowth comes in. The idea is that Meowth would be the offensive half and Wobbuffet would be the defensive half and they work together as one.

Ok, there are two Pokémon I would love to see in Smash as fighters:

>Darkrai since they are my favourite Pokémon
>Gengar because they are the favourite of my friend from Madrid

Personally, I would want to see either Totodile or Feraligatr as a playable fighter (DLC). I also want to see Meowth as a playable fighter (however, Meowth is already a Pokeball Pokemon, so that is unlikely). Ekans or Arbok would also be good choices.

As far as I know, neither Totodile nor Feraligatr have a support thread.

I believe that there is enough content they could add with a new Pokemon character. There is no Sun & Moon stage, and there's plenty of Spirits, music, and Mii Fighter costumes they could add.

I think a new Pokemon rep may be a safe bet now if the next set of DLC isn't exclusively third-party
