MEOWSTIC (POKÉMON X & Y) FOR SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE

WHO IS MEOWSTIC?

Meowstic (or Nyaonix in Japanese) is Pokémon #678, first appearing in the 3DS Game, Pokémon X and Y in 2013. It's a cat-like Pokémon known for it's Psychic type abilities as well as notable differences between the two genders. The male ones have a blue coat of fur and focus more on supportive moves, while the female's fur is more white and focuses more on offensive moves.
Female Meowstic
Male Meowstic

Their main source of their psychic energy comers from an organ in their ears. This energy is so powerful, that it could destroy a 10 ton truck. Because of this, they try to cover it up.

WHY SHOULD THEY BE IN SMASH?
The gender mechanic is a notable part of the Pokémon franchise ever since it was introduced in Generation 2, thanks to this, Pokémon could now breed and some Pokémon even looked different depending on which gender they were. Sure, most differences are minor, such as Female Pikachu having a heart shaped tail, and male Garchomps having slightly different fins compared to the female ones, But some like Meowstic, alongside others like Jellicent, Unfezant, and Pyroar look drasticly different compared to each gender. And assuming we have Pichu representing baby Pokémon, Mewtwo representing Legendary Pokémon, and Pokémon Trainer and Greninja (And Possibly Incineroar) representing Starter Pokémon, why not have a representation of Pokémon with gender differences?

As for Meowstic's popularity and reception, it's actually very well received (at least in Japan). A Pokémon popularity poll conducted in 2016, placed Meowstic at number 119 out of 720 Pokémon. Ranking higher than Pokémon such as Charmander, Psyduck, and all of the final evolutions of the Gen 2 and Gen 5 starters.

MEWTWO IS ALREADY A PSYCHIC TYPE. WHY DO WE NEED ANOTHER ONE?
In my opinion, it's not about what type the Pokémon is (Greninja and Squirtle are both water types), it's about what the Pokémon can bring to the table. And in my opinion, I think Meowstic can bring some pretty fun stuff to Smash

GEN 6 ALREADY HAS A REP, WHY HAVE ANOTHER ONE?
While yes, Gen 6 is already repped by Greninja, who says that each Generation can have only one Pokémon in Smash? Gen 1 Has 6 of them already with Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard. I don't think that's an official rule. Sure, it's unlikely for Gen 6 to get another rep, but it's not entirely impossible.

ASSUMING THE GENDERS HAVE DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS, SHOULDN'T THEY BE SEPARATE FIGHTERS? WOULD'NT THAT BE A BIT MUCH?
Not really, I see them being an Ice Climbers type combo where you control one of the Meowstic, while the AI controls the other one. If you ask me, I don't really think that's too much...

POSSIBLE MOVESET 1 (WORK IN PROGRESS)
The Meowstic (note whenever I say "The Meowstic", It's plural) will work much like the Ice Climbers, being a two person combo, as that is how they are usually portrayed in media such as the Anime. You will be controlling Female Meowstic, while the AI takes control of male Meowstic. You won't lose a stock if Male Meowstic is defeated, but If Female Meowstic is defeated, you will.

Side Smash: Both Meowstic preform a formal slap

Up Smash: Both Meowstic preform an upward kick similar to fox's up smash

Down Smash: Both Meowstic swing their tail from side to side.

Neutral Special: Psybeam Hold down the B button to charge the attack. Hit B again to release a powerful beam of psychic energy from Meowstic's ears that can take up about half the screen. The closer the opponent is to the start of the beam, the more damage they take.

Side Special: Disarming Voice Male Meowstic lets out a cry and releases a sound wave. If the sound wave hits an opponent, they will take damage, alongside lowering their attack power and speed for about 10 to 15 seconds. The sound wave cannot be pocketed or reflected. If Male Meowstic is defeated and you use this move, Female Meowstic will use it instead, with slightly less damage and the stat lowering effect is decreased.

Up Special: Scratch The Meowstic will lunge forward in the direction you choose, with a fury of scratches (This very similar to Fox's Up Special, just instead of Fire effects, there are multi hit scratches)

Down Special: Future Sight
If used on an opponent who is attacking, Female Meowstic will take one hit. However, after the hit, a bunch of Psychic energy attacks the opponent, causing 40% more damage that the attack that hit Female Meowstic.

Final Smash: Psyblast
Both Meowstic lift their ears to reveal their powerful psychic source, and then unleash a powerful wave of psychic energy at their opponents.

Victory Theme
Their Victory theme will be a snippet of the Pokémon Main them. This theme is already used for all of the other Pokémon in Smash

Your guess is as good as mine

Espurr's one of my fave Gen 6 pokemon, so naturally I'm gonna love it's evo too.
I had an idea for what they could do if they were added to Pokken, where the female one is the main controllable fighter but the male floats around offscreen until it gets teleported in to support her, making it an unorthodox duo fighter. Maybe the same could be done for Smash?

I think it would be better just to make them into one fighter but with the two skins. Theyre not really a duo character that much?

Ness in earthbound doesn't have some of the abilities he does in smash, so it doesnt matter too much if they have a few moves that the other doesnt.

Could be a fun character(s) in whatever case :)

The main reason I thought of them as a duo character, is because that is how they're often portrayed in the anime... And when it comes to Pokemon stuff in Smash, they usually take inspiration from the anime...
Also, they make a pretty cute couple

But yeah, I could possibly see them being one fighter...

Hmmm... okay...

So this whole time I didn't need to give my Reporter Thread to Dylly? Eh, that thing's in better hands now, anyways
Probably fine ;p
So long as you make a post about how you're willing to pass it over it should be good enough for someone to show it to a mod if they want to take over.
There's some cases where they might have to close this one to open a new one,, but that'd be the same whether it's now or later.
