After the announcement of the Smash Poll, I have been pushing the hashtag #Blaziken4Smash4
in order to spread why I feel like Blaziken should deserve a spot in Smash Bros Wii U. However, many people has shot down the idea of having him in the game for the fact that many people thinks of him being a Lucario or a Captain Falcon clone. Too be frank, I hate that people automatically think that about Blaziken. That and there is an invisible limit of Pokemon fighters for Smash Bros despite the growing number of every other IP's representatives, the most popular is Chrom and Roy(who has been planned for DLC already).
On top of that, there has been no news on Blaziken's inclusion in Pokken either, despite him and Lucario being featured in a video of Pokken before it was fully announced. This puts me at a saddened state being that Blaziken is one of my favorite pokemon, it's popularity ever since Ruby and Sapphire, and the fact that he was one of the first Mega-Evolutions in Pokemon X and Y.
I have in mind a Mauy Thai fighting style for Blaziken, with a mixture of his self-taught moves in ORAS such as Blaze Kick, Sky Uppercut and Flame Charge. The move-set will be more refined as the sheet goes along.
There will be a series on my Sprite Star channel called "#Blaziken4Smash
" that will show the process of the sprite sheet. I will keep you all informed once the first video will be made.
