  1. 1. Now that Ultimate has been out for a while, who is your favorite newcomer?

  2. 2. Who is your favorite new Echo Fighter?

Smash Ultimate just got nominated for GOTY, Best Fighting Game, and Best Family Game. Of course, knowing the Game Awards, it probably won't win much, if anything.

And so, like we should’ve expected literally anything else, Gen 8 is getting a Spirit event on Friday.

Now, let’s not assume this means no Gen 8 rep, because there’s still a lot of options to choose from for a Gen 8 rep. Like Sirfetch’d, for example; in fact, I even made a Sirfetch’d moveset myself:

Spoiler

Intro: Sirfetch’d appears out of a Luxury Ball and readies itself for combat.

Stance/Idle 1: Sirfetch’d holds its leek and leaf shield as it marches in place.

Idle 2: Sirfetch’d slightly swings its sword backwards.

Idle 3: Sirfetch’d smirks and slightly turns its head.


Notable Palette Swaps: Farfetch’d, Psyduck, Swanna, Cramorant, Honchcrow, Corviknight, Galarian Farfetch’d

Walk: Sirfetch’d marches proudly.

Dash: Sirfetch’d charges forward, sticking out its leek.

Damage: Sirfetch’d turns its head, with the expression of writhing in agony.

Jump: Sirfetch’d jumps simply, raising up its leek.

Crouch: Sirfetch’d crouches and raises its lead shield.

Weapon of Choice: Its leek, which has seen many a countless battle for years.

A,A,A: A swing of its leek (10%, small knockback) and a shield bash (8%).

Forward+A: Sirfetch’d thrusts its leek straight forward (12%, OK knockback)

Down+A: Peck; Sirfetch’d jumps forward and pecks with its beak (9%, OK knockback)

Up+A: Sirfetch’d swings its leek in an upwards arc (12%, OK knockback)


Air+A: Sand Attack; Sirfetch’d lets out some sand from underneath its shield (6%, small knockback)

Air Forward+A: Peck; Sirfetch’d slightly pecks the opponent with its leek (9%, small knockback)

Air Back + A: Steel Wing; Sirfetch’d swings its leek behind itself and turns it to steel, along with its wing (14%, OK knockback)

Air Up+A: Sirfetch’d thrusts its leaf shield upwards (12%, OK knockback)

Air Down+A: Slam; Sirfetch’d descends quickly and slams its leek in the ground (16%, OK knockback)


Dash Attack: Sirfetch’d rams into the foe with its shield (14%, OK knockback)

Edge Attack: Sirfetch’d pecks with its beak (9%, small knockback)

Smash Moves

Forward+A: Rock Smash; Sirfetch’d slams its beak so hard that rocks fly out of the ground (21%, medium knockback)

Up+A: Round; Sirfetch’d sings a note very loudly, briefly stunning opponents at full charge (18%, OK knockback)

Down+A: Brutal Swing; Sirfetch’d swings both its leek and shield in a full circle, with a purple light spinning out of it (24%, medium knockback)


Grab: Sirfetch’d grabs the opponent with its beak.

Pummel: Sirfetch’d bops the opponent with its shield (9%)

Forwards+Throw: Sirfetch’d tosses the opponent out and smacks them with its shield (14%, OK knockback)

Down+Throw: Sirfetch’d stomps on the opponent, trapping them in the ground (16%)

Back+Throw: Sirfetch’d tosses the opponent out and smacks them with its leek (17%, OK knockback)

Up+Throw: Sirfetch’d tosses the opponent out and stabs them with its leek (19%, medium knockback)


Special Moves

B : Protect; Sirfetch’d raises its shield and nullifies all attacks; however, the strength of some hits will eventually cause the shield to wither. It will repair itself with each string of attacks until it becomes unusable, which is signaled by a snap. At that point, it will take much longer to repair itself.

B + Forwards : Meteor Assault; Sirfetch’d’s most powerful attack. At full charge, it will charge a great distance with its leek and slice through opponents (42%, far knockback). However, it will suffer recoil damage (14%) and cools down for two seconds.

B + Up : Brave Bird; Sirfetch’d thrusts upwards at a great height (26%, medium knockback). The height is extraordinary, but at the cost of extremely slow horizontal movement. In addition, Sirfetch’d will suffer minor recoil (8%).

B + Down : Fury Cutter; Sirfetch’d prepares its leek, and cuts in a downward arrow shape (12% once, 19% the second time; medium knockback). If Sirfetch’d is hit while preparing its slash, it will instead move swiftly and cut in a diagonal line (18%, OK knockback)


Final Smash: Final Gambit; A blue aura sparks around Sirfetch’d, and it rams the opponent with its shield (16%). The opponent is then trapped in a cutscene where Sirfetch’d closes its eyes and puts its leek to its head. It then slashes furiously at the opponent and launches them with one last slash (48%, far knockback). The recoil it suffers after is almost equal (43%), which will leave it in danger if it’s at high damage.


Gimmick: Sirfetch’d’s shield will slowly wither as Protect is used. It will repair itself in a few seconds if it’s mildly withered. If completely withered, the repair time is about 13 seconds (which takes it to its mildly withered state, which means a 4-second repair). In this state, Protect is rendered useless until repairs are finished. The shield’s durability is represented by a HUD mock-up gauge of the leek; the shield will start to wither when the gauge is 75% depleted.

Taunts

1: Sirfetch’d wiggles its unibrow, its head turned to the camera.

2: Sirfetch’d kneels in its direction.

1+2: Sirfetch’d raises its leek up and lets out a war cry.


Winposes

1: Sirfetch’d makes a poses that mirrors a cutscene from the Subspace Emissary where Link pulls out the Master Sword.

2: Sirfetch’d concludes its Meteor Assault, and raises its leek with a gallant explosion in the background.

3: Sirfetch’d swings its leek diagonally down twice, and raises its leek as it lets out a hurrah.


Icon: Poké Ball

Boxing Ring Title: The Noble Wild Duck

Victory Music: https://youtu.be/kGPHtS1kFZ8

Kirby Hat: Sirfetch’d’s shield.

On a separate note, YES YES THEY’RE FINALLY USING SUGIMORI POKÉMON ART IN A SMASH GAME

  • Sobble - Squirtle, Shield, Swimmer
  • Morpeko - Pikachu, Neutral, Stats ↑ After Eating
  • Croviknight - Falco, Neutral, Air Defense ↑
  • Zacian - Lucina, Attack, Sword Attack ↑
  • Zamazenta - Link, Shield, Shield Durability ↑

Resident Evil Spirits are coming up soon.

Captain Falcon apparently represents Albert Wesker.

ProtonJon's influence has gone out of control.

Spoiler

All we need now is a bespectacled Rosalina skin/echo with really huge boobs.

 

On mobile, can’t figure out strike-through.

I'm gonna guess Snake represents Chris, ZSS represents Jill, and Fox represents Leon.

EDIT: Okay, Jill is Wii Fit Trainer. Then I'm probably way off with Chris and Leon.

No, you got Chris and Leon right.

I would love Wesker to be playable in Smash, but I can't imagine a moveset that isn't just "better Falcon AND he's using his gun now"

He’s playable in UMvC3, if it helps.

I'm aware of the WeskFactor, I'm more perplexed by how Wesker would do smash bros things like recover

That applies to most of the Resident Evil crew, honestly. The best option I've found is the Hookshot.

Ada has that piton gun that she takes on her spying missions.

Just want to throw this out there

 

But I feel like Ezio from Assassin's Creed, will get in during the second fighters pass. I think Altier and Connor will be his alts.

What I would do would have the trailer have Ezio running across the rooftops of stages.

He takes out the shadow clones, or whatever they're called from the story mode

He fights the good fight but gets surrounded by the clones. Have each of the clones fall simultaneously to reveal the other assassins as his costumes.

I would love it if Ezio made it in. Though I think that, in regards to popularity, Altier and Cassandra would likely be his alts.

With all these supposed deconfirmations, who do you guys think might be left in the running?

I don't believe any of them, whether they are saying yes or no. Just because someone had the right information in the beginning doesn't mean they'll get correct information the second time around, where they're given false info to completely discredit them for the future. The guy everyone is talking about on the smash reddit, is probably going to be another forgotten guy who leaked information in the community.

Well, my speculation is that, like Joker/Persona, we're in for a Game Awards contender from a prior year.

 

Probably not God of War, but I would love that. More likely, we're looking at Monster Hunter or NieR Automata.

I hope, like with Joker and Terry, we see someone who hasn't been on the radar at all. In part because the commonly discussed options are ones I don't care for, but also because it's a lot more fun to be truly surprised.

The opinion I have on speculation is that characters are talked about... because they're talked about. Smash discussion is pretty insular and repetitive. Some leaker mentions Steve a year ago and now he's always in the community's discourse ever since regardless of whether he can or even should happen.

 

It's like the Geno effect. Most of us don't care about Geno. We care that other people care about Geno.
