Following up our top five characters we want added as fighters, its time to talk about our top five wanted support characters.
But First, Confirmed Support Characters: Emolga, Fennekin, Snivy, Frogadier, Eevee, Lapras,Whimsicott, Jirachi
#5- Clefairy- Think back to the days where teams of 6 clefairy with only metronome as their move set was a thing. We can bring that back! Clefairy could show up and use metronome capable of using any move from splash to hyper beam. That would be insane. Honesty, this is probably my favorite idea, but it is not likely, so I am slotting it in at 5.
#4- Cresselia- Her goal would be to pop in use Light Screen, Reflect, Recover, or something like Psychic or Moonblast. When she appears she would use one of these moves based off who you are fighting and what the fight is like. Say you’re versing Machamp, she could use reflect to make his moves weaker or if you’re losing she can recover your health some. I am pulling for Cresselia, but there are a million pokemon’s with that move set. I could even root for Latias or Latios to promote ORAS. Whoever it is could really help swing the match or help you get back in it at least. It’s a solid idea.
#3-Mew- If were rooting for Mewtwo than we gotta be rooting for Mew! I don’t even care what the angle is. Mew is an awesome pokemon who could do a lot of cool stuff if you give him the spot. If they had finishers like in smash or mortal combat, it would be cool for mew to come in and help Mewtwo. I do not know how likely this would be since Jirachi is already confirmed and they could always use Celebi or any of the other base 100, but my hopes would be on Mew.
#2- Delibird!- Now this is almost as awesome as the metronome. He would play off his present move. He would have a set number of items from a Sitrus berry to sticky barbs. There would be a 50% chance he would give you the present and 50% chance he gives the opponent the present. He could add some randomness that would be fun against friends. I doubt this very likely either but it is a fun idea.
Honorable mentions: Muk, A stampede of Toroses, Any of the three birds, Any of the three lake pokemons, I’d say any of the eeveelutions but we already have Eevee, and Togepi, Chansey, or Arceus
#1- Bulbasaur- Come on, he’s the OG of pokemon(And thats coming from a Squirtle fan!). He has access to all the moves you would want from a support. Stun Powder, this could either slow your opponent down or make it where they can’t block. Sleep powder would wreck your opponent. Poison powder could drain life from them over an allotted amount of time and than something like Synthesis could gain you life depending on the weather of the stage.
I think Bulbasaur and the Cresselia option are the best as far as support goes. They aid you well and can hinder the opponent. Delibird and Clefairy are really more of fun ideas. Mew might not make it because Jirachi is already added.
