Right. And while there are a few assists and stuff that have shown up in previous Smash games that are similar (Ana and Kata vs. Latios and Latias) his assist ability is basically taken up by the black hole

Yeah, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he's announced as an Echo. Though I hoped Doctor Eggman would get into Smash before him. Like c'mon, the template's already there with Bowser Jr., just change up some of the moves and give him a different Final Smash.

Either Robotnik or Wily would work great as Echoes of Bowser Jr.

But at the same time, 3rd Party characters are at such a premium that I don’t really expect they’d waste one as a Echo.

Richter, sure, but he’s an echo of a full character.

I feel like Sonic/Shadow would compare more favorably to Simon/Richter than Bowser Jr./Eggman/Wily.

Totally down for those guys being in, btw, but I don't see them as being as likely.

Genuinely surprised that an ARMS character hasn't been confirmed by now. Even more surprised that them completing the Ridley/K.Rool/Geno hat trick seems more certain.

And simply MORTIFIED that they pandered to the masses with Isabelle instead of finally giving the far superior Lottie her chance to shine.

Target is STILL trying to offload all the surplus unsold amiibos they have of her, give the woman a damn boost

Does Cloud have an Echo fighter yet? Maybe someone from one of those FF games just announced for Switch. Tidus maybe?

Ohhhhh, what a cool idea! Wily in his little UFO thing, and you hardly need to change the clown copter for Robotnik.

Well to be fair Isabelle was a constant presence in an Animal Crossing game that people actually played and liked, while Lottie's starring game was basically a vehicle to sell Amiibo cards.

Isabelle is adorable, and also looks really fun to play with that fishing rod.

It's worth noting that the leaker mentioned earlier never said he knew the full roster, so the likes of Shadow are still very possible.

If Geno does get in, it strikes me that Boshi over Yoshi and Booster over Wario are both strong Echo Fighter candidates.

I can barely convey how much I'd love to play as Booster (WARIO'S MOTORCYCLE MOVE COULD BE REPLACED BY BOOSTER'S TINY TRAIN) but Geno, and maybe a SMRPG stage, is about as much as I'm expecting. And I do think Geno's close to a sure thing, weirdly enough, and this is easily the first Smash game I felt he was even semi-plausible; but he got a Mii costume in 4 like K.Rool, Cloud's already got that Square collabo going strong, and Sakurai really seems to be making a specific point of fulfilling the big ones everybody wanted, whether or not he himself seems to think they make much sense.

Most importantly, though, Kirby will look adorable in Geno's hat and with that little tuft of curly hair.

Personally I think Mallow would be a more interesting fighter, being a frog cloud with weather powers and all, but Geno definitely has the bigger fan following. Dude's basically "What if Pinocchio was Astro Boy?"

Geno is the cool action figure 12 year olds want, with the personality 12 year olds give their favorite action figure.

If he gets in I'd love them to play up the more toyetic aspects of his design - detailed joints, springs on the ends of his launchable fists, that sort of thing.
