I cannot fathom those who think they would rather Zard not return in Smash 4 because it wasn't "fair" to Squirtle and Ivysaur.
I'm still a little salty those two didn't return but Charizard made for a good punching bag.

Oh trust me, my favorite pokemon is Torterra, who is not very viable at all. As long as people are aware of Charizard's weakness, that's fine. It's the people who think he's the strongest thing ever because he swept a couple gym leaders.
Ok yeah I can respect that because I agree too.

I loved playing as every single Pokémon in Brawl, but if only one of the three Pkmn Trainer Pokémon could return, it was obvious it would be Charizard.

I would have enjoyed playing as Pokémon trainer if they had removed that awful stamina mechanic.

The type effectiveness for the three in Brawl shouldn't have been a thing to begin with

Oh that too.

Overall I love the concept of the Pokémon trainer character but it was very poorly implemented. The type effectiveness and stamina were really dumb mechanics. I get that it's supposed to be reminiscent of the Pokémon games but it just makes for an unfun character. It also just feels like three incomplete characters slapped together.

It's a shame we lost Squirtle and Ivysaur but having them as stand alone characters would have bumped the Pokémon series up to eight characters in Smash 4, which would be a little much, especially when six of those eight would be from Gen I.
