Ulti's Analysis Edit

A standard part of every Cloud match these days is losing the board vote, and when faced with a Pokemon he is guaranteed to lose the board vote in hilarious fashion. This time it was Lugia who stole it from him early, though Lugia fell off quickly and fell off hard. He fell off so hard that Frog was able to overcome an early 50 vote deficit, even in the face of Cloud stealing votes from him, and eventually power through to an easy second place win. One would think Lugia had a shot at second place here, but it was not to be.

In reading some topics during the match, and even after the contest, Pokemon gets less and less popular with each new generation no matter what any sales numbers will suggest. People are attached to those original 151, and any Pokemon after that will have some issues with contest strength. I wouldn't even be surprised if Lugia got more strength from being an assist trophy in Smash than he did from Pokemon.

Zen's (Late) AnalysisEdit

Lugia looks like something sold by Bad Dragon here, wow. People were taking this flying dildo for 2nd based partially on POKEFEAR and partially on how dominant it was in R1. Other people saw getting 60% on Sly and York as not really an accomplishment, and thought Frog would have no problem here.

The ladder turned out to be true and this match was pretty boring. A lot of people showed up to the board asking how Lugia ended up in the bracket. That was about the highlight. That, and this. Allen was so on point with these quotes, it's like he had future vision.

Speaking of quotes, remember when everyone had a problem with Frog losing his old-timey speak in Chrono Trigger DS? I remember users everywhere being LIVID that the core of Frog's character was ruined.

Meanwhile, in Octopath Traveller land, I have seen people all over complaining that Haiti the Hunter and her village speak entirely in bad old-timey speak: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1424&v=X2JXGU-qxJ8 "Letten us beginin'" and "Letten my arrow'n flyin' true," how they hell did the voice actress say that with a straight face? Can you turn the VA off? Holy shit it's 2018, don't give Audio Atrocities any ammo.

Let me leave you with this, I believe these words came from Herman Cain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jV_11_q6Hc

It says a lot about where I am, where Lugia is, and where we are as a board.
