First observations on Fighter Pack 5:
I have chosen to name Girl Byleth "Blythe", because (a) it's a real name, (b) it sounds better than "Byleth", & (c) anagrams are fun.
Blythe has 2 different jab combos, that's weird.
Poor mobility as promised, but the attacks are very natural.
Reverse Aymr is so much faster than Reverse Falcon/Warlock Punch.
Is the name "Progenitor God Ruptured Heaven" a spoiler? Is Sothis secretly the creator of the FE universe?
Garreg Loch Ness Monastery is a fun stage.
Most of the spirit board fights are boring or cheap. Claude was both. (Sothis is all kinda nonsense that I haven't even attempted yet.)
Classic route is just fighting all the other FE characters in stamina, which is boring *until* the boss....
Spoiler.
Master & Crazy Hands, in stamina....in 8P mode with 5 other FE characters helping you.

Seriously, if we'd gotten Byleth in the base roster instead of Chrom, nobody would be complaining.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Edelgard alt costume Byleth is where it's at. I doubt she'll replace Golden Roy as my main, but I like her so far.

Speaking of Fire Emblem characters, I've got a bit of a bone to pick. Roy was essentially already an echo of Marth, but instead of going with that, they gave Marth Lucina's moveset and made Lucina his echo, with Chrom being Roy's echo.

Lucina was already in Smash, so they really could have made Chrom her echo, and it would have been perfect.

Why?

Chrom is Lucina's goddamn father.

SMH, Nintendo.

Ok, it may seem kind of moot if you don't play as either, but there's a difference in how they use their sword. Roy and Chrom swing the sword down from above, Marth and Lucina have a forward jab. I tried playing as Lucina in both 3DS and Ultimate because I like her as a character more than Roy, but no matter how much I practiced I just wasn't getting the sword Style correct.

Not quite what I meant. ;)
You said they gave Marth Lucina's moveset, rather than the other way around. Marth came first.

Interesting. I wonder what character Sakurai had in mind instead that "wasn't given preference". If that character really has no chance in the future you'd think they would just mention it.

Good find, but we all pretty well knew Blythe was a Nintendo mandate, just like Corrin was.

I think the Pokemon were too. Fire cat thing and Greninja, specifically. I'm surprised a new Pokemon starter wasn't crammed into the DLC. I think one may be the first from the next batch.

ill respect him when hes not dumb

If we're getting more Pokemon it has to be Meowth. I'd also accept Pokemon Trainer Gold for some much needed generation 2 representation.

Meowth is already a Pokéball assist. I'd rather not repeat the Chrom mixup.
