    The Pokken Tournament argument is invalid. It the first game in the Pokken series, of course its roster would be small. If Pokken Tournament 2 happens, it'll have a bigger roster.

    Without a doubt the roster will grow. Casual play would be less exciting. I mean having a 1/58 chance to get a character is nuts! You can play 58 matches without a repeat. It's like a new game every time!

    Here's my take on how big the roster will be. It'll be around 75/80ish once dlc commences. The base game is obviously a 4.5 sequel like pkm sun/moon or black/white 2. Meaning unless licenses for 3rd parties went away ( which I highly doubt ) most of if not all the characters in 4 will probably make it back. 2 points of discussion I need to discuss are clones and character representation.
    Clones take no additional development time. They are bonus and people who complain about them are just misinformed. Listen. If they get rid of Dr Mario, dark pit, or Lucina, you will not get a new character in their place. This is evident from Melee where sakurai has stated himself if they were to put in a new character ( not the additional bonus clones of Roy, falco, ganondorfs, Pichu, etc ) it'd be Wario. If it were easy as people think it'd be, we'd have wario instead. And most of them ( with a few exceptions ) add a smaller new take on the original moveset warranting a roster slot. And if anything with link and Mario possibly taking on new movesets, we'd need toon link and Dr Mario in the game because not only would they have not be clones anymore, they would retain a moveset that would be missed. That's why ice climbers, wolf, and snake are missed so much. With new games as well, they have the opportunity to change clones into semiclones and further. Like Dark Pit. He can literally be changed to not have a single move in common with pit. As a final statement, clones do not take up development time, create new possibilities in characters, and help flesh out the roster despite your opinion of them not being original.
    And finally. People who complain about a certain series getting too many reps is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard. First off, Mario and Pokemon deserve 20 reps each with what they've done for the gaming industry alone and both have unique enough characters to do so. Fire emblem ( despite me not playing the games ) deserves every rep it can get. You know why? Because smash is it's home. It brought it to the West and its final game in the series is what sparked mainstream attention and even some of Nintendo's bigger franchises can't come close to how beloved it's become ( ie fire emblem mobile, the hype for Fe switch, etc ) . Characters get it based off 2 things. 1. Uniqueness ( despite what series it comes from hence why donkey Kong, Zelda, and Metroid don't get enough reps ) 2. Popularity of the character. That's why I guarantee captain Toad will have some priority over characters like Isaac, chibi robo, chorus kids, etc. Characters get in because of what they represent and not the series for which they're known.
    All that outta the way, here's my characters for smash switch. 22 new and returning fighters including dlc.
    1. Ice Climbers
    2. Wolf
    3. Springman
    4. Captain Toad ( with toadette as an alternative skin)
    5. Waluigi
    6. Paper Mario
    7. Dixie, King K Rool, Cranky or funky ( honestly I only see 1 of them, but the more the merrier )
    8. Kamek ( as a Yoshi rep)
    9. Bandana Dee
    10. Galacta Knight ( last minute clone of meta Knight )
    11. Rex/Pyra
    12. Young Link ( dlc brought back with masks as his new gimmick )
    13. Dillion
    14. Decidueye or pkm gen 8 rep ( probably gen 8 because everyone expected zoroark last time but got Greninja )
    15. Takamaru, Balloon Fighter, Excitebiker, Or Mach Rider. (Retro rep. Preferably this new rep gets a new game after this similar to kid Icarus )
    16. This rep is reserved for dlc for whatever new IP retro studios has been working on.
    17. Rayman
    18. Crash and Spyro
    19. Bomberman
    20. Banjo Kazooie ( I'm confident it'll work because Nintendo and Microsoft have been doing alot of crossplay and Phil Spencer said it's ok. Equate this to Cloud of last game )
    21.travis touchdown or Doom guy ( my choice for the Bayonetta of the game. A matire character you were sure was ready to be in the game )
    22. Steve Or someone from Skyrim
    ( 2 of the biggest games of the past decade? That has smash representation written all over it. Mark my words, something from one these games will be in here. )

  • M1SS1NGN0
    M1SS1NGN0 8 months ago

    Larger roster for me. In my opinion I prefer Doc, Dark, and Lucina over their counterparts, and I can go either way for Link but I do think BOTW Link might be different.

  • Blank Munch the most constant grammar cop

    Smash bros would be perfect if bandanna dee, Ridley, and maybe Impa

  • Sonic Timelord
    Sonic Timelord 8 months ago

    Honestly if they cut down Smash’s roster to half of what it is in Wii U, fans would rage and complain so hard because so many of their favourite characters would most likely be cut.
    People like the variety of the characters: some like the stronger hits of Link but some like the quickness of Toon Link and some like to mix between the two.

  • deathshadow551
    deathshadow551 9 months ago

  • MrBeanieMan
    MrBeanieMan 9 months ago

    I feel that this doesn’t have to be the case because perhaps they could possibly integrate some sort of system that would keep the original roster, but then maybe have a daily or weekly reset that would bring some of those more diverse characters and play sets into the game. This also could allow for TONS of replay ability and create more of a stable basis for characters which helps for having less of a hectic roster. So I think this would be an awesome idea that they could add due to Nintendo’s ever growing Smash roster.
    P.S. I’m not sure how the New Challenger Approaches aspect would be implemented to this new daily or weekly roster idea.

  • Legendary Link
    Legendary Link 9 months ago

    I'd like a reset but still high of a roster as well. Where I see some would be disappointed in their character not being in or different from before would anger them, but it's a bitter sweet kind of thing beause the whole roster itself would be changed even if some were brought back. I think what I'm trying to get at is there is something of a happy medium between new roster and vetran roster. Like what if the roster starts completely changed and then start releasing character dlc bundles? And I'm not talking a petty four character dlc but a whole dlc roster. They could even fair price that in and make that happen entirely. Imagine that you could pay like $30-$40 for a whole roster of Brawl, Sm4sh, or even Melee added to your already new roster. It sounds crazy but it'd be like a flipp flopped DLC where you start with the new and add the vetrans you want after. I know I put something of far fetched but isn't that sometimes how great things happen? Things don't always start out great to begin with but become greater in time.

  • Gamer Jesse
    Gamer Jesse 9 months ago

    Here what i think they will do expand the roster maybe take away few and replace with New characters
    But again the roster shall be expanded
    Nintendo could easily take away clones and replace them with New characters
    Like replace dr mario with waluigi
    Lucina with chrom
    Dark pit could easily be pit skin
    Lucina could easily be marth skin
    Dr mario could easily be Mario skin
    Make these characters a skin and give new character like chrom or waluigi a chance from that series
    Even zero suit samus could be a skin of samus
    So that why i think they should just put them ether as skins
    Or get rid of them
    So that New fan favorite characters can take the spot light

    I think people will be justifiably upset if they clean out the roster.
    Hell, I don't wanna lose Lucario and Lucina, among others. Even if they are considered clones. I like the characters themselves, and just because the moveset is similar doesn't mean I'd be equally happy playing Marth or Mewtwo.
    Remember the outrage when ice climbers got cut? People are attached to these characters for sure.

  • Famous Jordie
    Famous Jordie 10 months ago

    Why wouldn’t you want variants like Mario and Dr. Mario? Decreasing the roster does not necessarily mean a diversified move set. I say add as many characters as possible (in reason) without totally copying another characters moveset.

    One character I would like to see in Smash Bros for the Switch would be Shadow The Hedgehog. The reason why is because there is only one Sonic character in Smash while the others have multiple. I know shadow won't become a newcomer in the Switch version of Smash Bros but I would definitely love to see it happen! Give this comment a thumbs up if you agree.

  • Luke McCaulley
    Luke McCaulley 10 months ago

    i think we should keep it diverse but possibly to save room make slots for a series, for example super Mario bros, or fire emblem, and once you click on it it would contain all the characters you from that series you can choose from and a summary of moves/ stats for each charater.

  • Charlé Ouel
    Charlé Ouel 10 months ago

    Perso I want more Full character (AKA something like Ike vs Marth)
    Over Lucina (it not that I don't want Lucina but why not make like Lyn insteed and make Lucina a "Skin" for Marth insteed?)
    I do fell like most ppl think the same way They are ok whit (Semi-clone Exemple Fox vs Falco) but kinda don't really want Fully clone (Lucina vs Marth)
    Perso I think the new Fire emblem character are really fun... But I still think Lucina could just have been a Skin for marth and would have work prefectly fine whitout takeing space in the Character menu.
    (I think Corrin, Robin where really well done and fun. But I would still have prf geting a Spear user or something else insteed of Lucina)

    • Charlé Ouel
      Charlé Ouel 10 months ago

      Any way How I see it is really simple:
      New Character: YES (Exemple: Ike vs Marth really not much is the same it pretty much a full new character)
      Semi-Clone: YES (Exemple: Fox vs Falco yah sure they got pretty much all the same skill and similar moment type but overall they still got alot of uniqueness in there kits Falco got better Air but worse Ground his Skill most of the time got some knock back Shield and Blasted for exemple, but they still use the same Side special and up Special)
      Clone character: NO (but make them Skin Exemple: Dark Pit, Doc. Mario, Lucina)

  • Samix 3
    Samix 3 10 months ago

    What there should be:
    1.errr... the Wii fit girl is useless (so no more)
    2. there should be more option, like an option to choose how often smash ball or object appears, like how much you can grow with the mushroom or shrink,more object, more ejection force, more craziness in short
    4. Why not snorlex that’d be fun
    5. There’s many Mario character why don’t you add some sonic character like tail would be interesting, shadow and silver too same as knuckles..
    6.bandana waddle dee, Coz why the heck not
    7. More BOSSES
    8.badass character
    9.more moves or like more final smash, like if you do B up this would do a different final smash then just B, that’d be cool right? Right? Right...?
    10.i want Cappy, like you can do like control a character and auto kill him (that’d be an interesting final smash for Mario)
    11.more mii abilities (you know what I mean) (like more then gunner, fighter and sword fighter)(that’d be cool if they where more then that)
    12.MORE STAGE!!! More Kirby stage, MARIO STAGE (MAYBE MARIO ODYSSEY STAGE!!!!!!!), more sonic stage, more Zelda stage .... etc
    13. Amazing Quality, AMAZING quality and graphics,
    THAT’S all I want

    AND DONT TOUCH TO MY KIRBY!! Let him be in!!!
    WAIT A SEC I forgot the most important, (what I Sometime love about video game)
    14. The music. C’mon Nintendo, why not put opening of game in the music in the extra , like the Mario odyssey song (its pretty good tho), And please add more song from other game, coz you added like many song from Mario and almost none from other game like sonic game have incredibly good song and you haven’t put many compared to the number of Mario song, KIRBY HAVE NOT EVEN 10 song in the game, AND pac man there’s literally just one song, and star fox two, ADD more song,c’mon Nintendo its always fun playing with different song
    15. The last one, so in the adventure mode you can choose a song to make it play but what make me sad is that you can’t in the other mode so that’d be cool like if you could choose a song to play for the smash mode ....
    Now that truly all

    Roster resets are often not about uniqueness and more about balance. You can have a big roster with lots of unique characters but its very hard to balance 100 vs 10 characters. That's why games like League of legends need constant patches every few weeks. Nintendo will likely not want to constantly patch the game forever unless they can make consistent money from it somehow.
