Whenever a new Smash Bros is announced, the internet collectively speculates what new Pokémon will be appearing in the game as a fighter.
With Smash Bros Ultimate we got the addition of Incineroar, though in taking the Pokémon fighter slot, fans would have to wait another five-plus years for their favourite pocket monster to be added to the game. With DLC though, maybe we won't have to wait so long.
You may argue that Pokémon is one of the most represented franchises in Smash, with Ultimate having eight to ten Pokémon in the base game (depending on how you count them), though as of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! there are 809 Pokémon to choose from.
That means just over 1% of Pokémon are available to fight in Smash, so having a few more can't hurt, right?
But which deserve to be in included? Whilst an argument could be made for almost every Pokémon out there, due to potential fighter uniqueness and popularity, this lot would be perfect picks.
