I was more so referring to Gen I Pokemon specifically. were bonuses on account of being last minute clones. Jigglypuff from Melee onward received little differences here and there of course so she's fine as she is now. (Wouldn't hurt if they buffed her though...) As of now, Jigglypuff has evolved into a series staple as part of the original twelve. (Pun somewhat intended.)Yup. Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, and I guess Lucario are must-haves while Jigglypuff, Squirtle, Ivysaur, Pichu, and Greninja are bonus extras. I just wish that Meowth is one of those bonus extras in at least one Smash game.
were all meant to be a proper team/transformation character viaNone of them were bonuses, but when it came down to it was the only one who made it back due to being the most popular of the three and the elimination of the transformation mechanic. Some work on the other two was completed but they were dropped fairly early on. Prioritizing new content was the route they took which I feel was for the best.
aren't bonuses either. They're representatives of the modern Pokemon generations.
The unfortunate case is that for Meowth to get in, it would indeed have to be as a special bonus as more Kanto Pokemon likely aren't going to be a priority unless they outright return to Generation I with a remake of the original games on the Switch or something along those lines.
Also keep in mind that characters likehave easier times squeezing in on account of being able to reuse assets. This is something Meowth doesn't have, so it'd have to be a very special case where they can set aside the time for an additional character to be built from the ground up, and only if Kanto has major relevance again.
And even if all those conditions were met, there's still the final hurdle of competing with other Gen I Pokemon.We already know many would like to see or return. Their final evolutions and are also very popular. Aside from them, I do know that is very popular as well. I don't know if there are any others with high popularity, but as you can see, there's still yet some more contenders that would stand in 's way.
