Okay so all the coverage of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Direct is now out, all the facts from the video are out and if you still haven’t seen it, there’s plenty of time to get in on it for some good old fashioned speculation and rumours!

So firstly, I’d like to point out that we’re shown Charizard as a singular character, and also the fact that he can mega-evolve (probably his final smash?). We were only show Charizard X, so does that mean Charizard Y isn’t in? The Y form isn’t quite as iconic as X, but it’s still a pretty important mega evolution in my opinion. I’d like the option to choose which mega evolution Charizard turns into, but I doubt that’ll actually be in the final game.

Greninja. This guy’s announcement was totally out of the blue, I don’t think anyone really saw that coming. The interesting thing about Greninja is that he doesn’t mega evolve in the Pokémon games, so his final smash will actually be a move rather than a form change. The video showed us a slight clip of his smash, which involves a stereotypical ninja slash from one side of the screen to the other, repeatedly, culminating in one powerful hit.

Mega Lucario being a thing now brings the question of how Lucario’s final smash works. His old final smash was a controllable laser beam that struck through the entire stage. Has that idea been totally canned, or will is still remain in some form?

As you can tell, I’m really hyped for the Pokémon related characters. What are you guys hyped for? Tweet at me on Twitter @Valkenhyne, or leave a comment on this post! I’d like to see everyone else’s thoughts!
