Ok, so I'm pretty new to Reddit, and I don't even know if this is the best subreddit for this subject, but I didn't know whether to put it in
r/pokemon, so I'm just putting it here.
I've thought about this topic for way too much time now, and have argued with my friends about with for HOURS, both in real life and in discord calls, and I want to get opinions from other people that might be more knowledgeable about the game.
The premise is very simple, you have the canonical version of every single fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate against all 893 Pokemon, taking their pokedex entries into consideration of how powerful they are.
Of course, there's the issue of water type pokemon, so I just set the scene of the battle on a Battle Royale style island, so water types are at the edge of the island. Another big issue is how types would work against someone like Mario, and how there are pokemon on the Smash Bros. side. Well, for the first problem, I just think that moves like sheer cold and guillotine don't one shot, and also there really is no super effective types or anything. Furthermore, on the pokemon side, there isn't really the stats that you would normally see, it's more or less just like a normal animal. If it gets hit too hard, it'll die (unless it's a Registeel or something). And for the pokemon on the Smash Bros. side, keep them! Why wouldn't you, there's part of smash. There now is just two Pichu's, Pikachu's, Mewtwo's, etc. Of course on pokemon against pokemon, normal rules would work, but as the endgame of the duel approaches, I doubt any pokemon from the Smash Bros. side would even be alive. Another issue, mega evolutions and Dynamaxing/Gigantamaxing. I just throw those out of the equation to be honest, simplifies things. Yes there are seperate pokedex entries for them, and they do get stronger, but honestly, it's too much of a hassle. What else happens then, is there a Rayquaza and a mega Rayquaza and a dynamaxed Rayquaza? What about the pokemon that aren't in the Galar Region, so we haven't seen their dynamaxed forms? It just simplifies things, sorry about that.
Smash Bros. characters would be taken out of their canonical edition, so like Zelda would be the Zelda from the The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and not any other version of Zelda. Any possesions that they would have normally would be given to them, like all four of Link's Divine Beast's spirits and Duck Hunt's Gunman.
Now, with most of the problems out of the way (there are bound to be more), who would win? I was switching back so much from Pokemon to Smash Bros to Pokemon, but ended up settling on Smash. There are certain scenarios that would occur that would just obliterate 95% of the population on both sides. For example, Yveltal's death. Only beings with high mobility or just able to leave Earth can really live that. Another is Magcargo leaving it's pokeball, which is a debatable scenario, because are they all in PokeBalls or just summoned there? The hard hitters on both sides are the creation trio, Ultra-Necrozma, Arceus, and some less powerful choices, like Ditto and most of the Ultra Beasts. Smash, although hugely outnumbered, has Kirby, Bayonetta, Sonic, some Links with the god damn Triforce of Courage, Ganon with the Triforce of Power, and Pokemon Trainer potentially being able to attempt to catch some pokemon.
So? Which side would win? I'm personally on Team Smash Bros., but I wouldn't be surprised if Pokemon won.
