Here’s The Pokemon That Nearly Made It Into Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch was one of the best games of last year. Sporting a stellar line-up, a never-ending selection of music and more stages than you could shake a stick at it, it really is…well, the ultimate in Smash gaming.

However, it could have been pretty different according to a recent Nintendo Dream magazine interview [via Source Gaming’s PushDustin].

It’s caused something of a debate over on Twitter, as Incineroar and Decidueye fans sound off about the final decision from Nintendo.

Who would you prefer to play as in Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Did Nintendo make the right choice with Incineroar, or are you more Team Decidueye?
