Sure, Sceptile isn't the most popular starter of Gen 3 or in general, but people are too quick to dismiss him. If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't have had screentime in the anime as one of Ash's main Pokémon and in the upcoming XY&Z arc. If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't have gotten a Mega Evolution. If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't have been the only Hoenn starter available in Pokémon Conquest. If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't be one of the most requested Pokémon characters for Sm4sh. You see less people supporting Blaziken for Sm4sh which is surprising considering he's the most popular of the Hoenn starters. Sceptile may not be anywhere near Charizard, Pikachu, or Lucario's level, but he's still a solid and respectable Pokémon in his own right.
>he wouldn't be one of the most requested Pokémon characters for Sm4sh
you're approaching ridleyfag status
also Blaziken has as much appearance as Septile, and Blaziken got a mega earlier than Sceptile
I always assumed the people who wanted him in Smash only did so half out of the autism of wanting all three starter types represented and half because they feel Blaziken is over-exposed. It doesn't have a whole lot to do with Sceptile himself.
>If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't be one of the most requested Pokémon characters for Sm4sh
this is because of autistic patternfags who started bandwagoning after Greninja got confirmed. Not because of Sceptile's actual popularity.
That is your argument? Seriously?
The guy is a loser. Guy is a good trainer in terms of treating his Pokemon, that is respectable, but in actual battles he just sucks a lot.
Some people think having Ash lose and not win teaches kids that failure is ok. I never got that message as a kid. I instead got Ash sucks. It's dumb. Just let him win one at least. And by one, I mean one of the main regions. Not the Orange Leagues or equivalent.
He's pretty good in battle. It's just that somebody is better than him. Coming between 8-4th place everytime in the leagues with several hundreds of people in them actually makes him really good. It's just A LOT of competition. Not being the best doesn't mean he sucks in battle when he clearly doesn't looking at his record.
He defeated the battle frontier and was even offered to have his own battle facility after he won it. And if you watch his latest gym battle battle against Olympia you will see that he's better than he has ever been before.
So all in all he's a very good trainer for being so young and compared to the games there's actually legitimate competition.
>He's the main character after all
May was also a main character at the time you know and she had a Blaziken with a lot of screen time.
On top of that wasn't Blaziken the first mega in the XY anime?
>If Sceptile was unpopular, he wouldn't have gotten a Mega Evolution
He got a Mega Evolution only because he's one of the Starters in ORAS
>he's the most popular of the Hoenn starters.
Holy fuck you're stupid
May has had no where near as much screentime as Ash. And so what if Blaziken was the first mega in the XY anime? Sceptile is also going to have a prominent role in the upcoming XY&Z saga
Regardless, it still doesn't change the fact that he's one of the most deserving and requested Pokémon to be in Smash. Blaziken would be redundant when we already have a Fire-type in Charizard, and Blaziken would most-likely just be a Captain Falcon clone, anyways. Sceptile would add a lot more uniqueness to Smash than Blaziken ever would.
I still can't believe they made Sceptile the official jobber of this season.
nothing about it screams "fun or unique to play"
just because blaziken shouldn't be added doesn't mean sceptile automatically should either. And type has little to do with actual gameplay. This is the problem with you sceptilefags taking type patterns and using it as evidence for your special snowflake "deserving" to get in when it literally doesn't matter
