10. Ash Ketchum/Pokemon Trainer 2.0 (Pokemon series)
Brawl‘s Pokemon Trainer was one of the most unique characters in that game. Really three characters in one, the Pokemon Trainer himself was relegated to the background of each stage, directing one of his three monsters – Squirtle, Ivysaur and Charizard – from afar, which could be swapped out at will. With Pokemon X and Y due out in October, a new Smash Bros. is a perfect time to update that particular character with some new Pokemon – perhaps the new starters and evolutions thereof, keeping with the original character? And, like every Pokemon since Crystal, maybe it might be nice to offer players the opportunity to fight as a female trainer?
