The pokemon fandom on Twitter and Reddit be like
A cartoon I used to watch as a kid about a goth chick who was raised by insects


It was pretty cool
Yet another show I had completely forgotten about until you reminded me of it.

You're making me feel old, Noipoi.

Ok, so what are five franchises that you would love to see rebooted?

  1. Dark ****ing Stalkers (I need that. I need it like I need air and food and water)
  2. Bloody Roar
  3. Joe and Mac
  4. Paperboy
  5. Earthworm Jim
  6. Eternal Champions
**** that’s six. Oh well
It doesn't have to be reboots, but some kind of sequel would be nice for these series too.

1. F-Zero
2. Power Stone
3. Bloody Roar
4. Un-cancel Legends 3 or Starforce 4
5. Another new Punch-Out, it's been 10 years.

Eevee is the cutest cat-dog-fox thing on the planet and should've been the mascot of Pokemon and not an electric rat, change my mind.
It constantly gets new forms, so yeah. Honestly it should have been the mascot. At least Pikachu's a better choice Clefairy.
Oh my God, it's happening.
That the Pachinko game or something?

It's clearly the Leaked Smash Trailer. I mean look at it!

... it's a cinematic trailer for a Chinese mobile DMC3 game. Apparently, the Chinese audience is a big fan of DMC and can afford to blow cash on these trailers.

Ah. So it's good gif fodder then? Fine by me.

Each character is associated with a color.

Piranha Plant=green
Joker=red
Hero=purple
Banjo=yellow

Because Nintendo definitely chose the DLC characters based off color schemes and not something as ridiculous as popularity or moveset potential, we'll be seeing someone with blue or orange next.
I thought Joker was more black than red.
And Banjo more brown because of his fur.

I don't know if Darkstalkers would need a reboot per say, but **** it, I take anything as long it's more Darkstalkers.

Calling it now given the newcomers having been heavily fan demand and such blue will be Geno and orange is Crash.

Ash-Greninja being in Smash is a few steps above just a mention, I'd say.

Geninja's final smash being what it is implies that it is not just an Greninja, but Ash's Greninja specifically.
I always assumed Pikachu was Ash’s Pikachu specifically.

Crash = Orange
Artorias = Blue

Dude it says my personality type is unknown
And my stats were around the same and pretty high ummm, so I guess I'm a new type of personality yeah lets go with that and not that I'm broken.....................yaaaaaaaaaaaay

It did pose some intriguing questions though so I think that was a worthwhile diversion to go down


PLAY GLORIA
Dang. Ok, so...if the result says "inconclusive" I would take another look at it and see if there are any questions you misunderstood and from there re-answer those questions.

Or, ignore the overall result and select the function that got the highest percentage. It may look at functions which is great, but it aint perfect.

Blue: Geno or Hayabusa (if they go with his classic design)
Orange: Crash or Retsuko

Tbh, Crash doesn’t need any fan theory to feel likely right now.

There are actual legit strong points that give those vibes instead:
>Activision wants him in
>Popular both in the West and Japan
>Currently a flagship Activision property due to how great it sells
>Has a good chunk of cool titles on Nintendo systems
>Returned forever around 2017 (same year DQXI released)
>West picks are now highly likely
>Nintendo considers Crash an icon
>The current relationship between Activision and Nintendo is wonderful
>He and Spyro are getting all of their new games on Switch
>Moveset potential
>Cool music to bring in
>Stage potential like the Time Twister from Warped
>Crash vs Sonic vs Mario

If he only had the fan theories, he wouldn’t be so likely in my eyes.

I don't think Nintendo picks characters based on music and stage potential.

I feel yall need to learn your lesson that not ever stupid theory is worth entertaining
Exactly.

The colour theory doesn’t make sense, because there are many picks that could go with orange (Crash, Agumon, Bandana Dee, Daxter, Conker, etc...) and blue (Geno, Wright, Vergil, etc...). It’s silly to find someone likely only based on that.

No, a character is considered likely if they have stuff on their favour outside of these fan theories (which DQ and Banjo had).

Hey so, found this in the KOS-MOS thread:

I was debating on bringing this up or not but since we have been speculating the next fighter is female I thought it would be okay.

So the newest credible rumour is that a female character is next. This guy predicted DQ Hero correctly even before Erdrick was ever speculated/leaked and the most important part is that he guessed correctly that Hero has no female alts.

He's now been posting in English instead of Japanese sometimes... possibly cause his tweets have now gained traction in the west.

Here are some of the tweets from the account with his posts which were before and right after Sakurai finalized dlc with Nintendo.

October 2018

Translation:
"I have a friend irl saw the development of Smash Ultimate, and he said that they're not making DLC yet statement was a lie.
I wasn't listening to him well but he predicted Isabelle so he has credibility.
He said Akira Toriyama art style character(s) and a female fighting game character? are coming.
I don't really care about them just give me Neptune."

December 2018

Translation:
Nintendo Switch VR will be released.
Dragon Quest protagonist (excluding women) and a female fighting game character (I can't remember who) will be added to Smash Bros.

June 2019

And here is where it gets super interesting. He came back and now says the character is "like a female fighting game character"


people have been heavily speculating Reimu and he denies that today


There could be the possibility KOS-MOS is that female especially if we are talking Namco. When I think "like" a fighting game character I think of lots of moves and similarities. KOS-MOS is similar to Alisa Bosconovitch in Tekken for example. It's all speculation but I believe this rumour is pretty credible. Also, KOS-MOS appeared in Soulcalibur III as a CAS... not necessarily a fighter but it's something.
Hmmm...

Other candidates I can think of are Chun-li, a female from Tekken (unlikely due to the movement being difficult to translate to Smash), Mai Shiranui (with that design? Not in my Christian E10+ rated game says Sakurai), Athena Asamiya, or some chick from Dead or Alive

Also Mr. H = Harada? Who also might I remind y’all worked on Xenosaga?

RIP Reimu fans tho

Female fighting rep? Chun-li or bust. Yeah, we already got 2 Street Fighter characters and plenty of content in the game but I'd rather we get an iconic character rather than someone from a lesser known series, even if it'd be new to Smash

Her and a MK rep are the only fighting game characters I'd be game for in the Fighters Pass tbh

He later changed his statement to “like a female fighting game character” and KOS-MOS kinda fits that bill? Her moves in Project X Zone, Super Robot Taisen OG etc operate similarly to a fighting game
