I think deep inside we’d all love to have a Smash game with an all-female cast. That would seriously kick ass. Take notes, Nintendo!
Can you name all characters present here?
The Pokemon ‘Jigglypuff’ is featured in this picture. However this creates a problem with the intention of the picture. It was stated that “I think deep inside we’d all love to have a Smash game with an all-female cast.”
Now isn’t it odd that Jigglypuff is found here. That fact raises a contradiction between the statement and the picture. Jigglypuff is recorded to have a 25% chance of being born male.
I’m shocked someone as fashionable as you can’t see something so obvious. Maybe you need to update your wardrobe.
Looking at the evidence of Jigglypuff’s alternative costumes, we can see that the majority of them are accessories from female characters in the series, such as Serena and Nurse Joy
While the gender ratio isn’t 100% female, it’s rather obvious that Jigglypuff is intended to be female in the games.
While you bring up an excellent point, Wright, you completely overlook the obvious as per usual.
You’ve pointed out that Jigglypuff wears hats based on female characters. So what? Many cosplayers wears outfits based on their opposite gender.
Secondly, your statement that Jigglypuff is intended to be female is baseless and subjective. Are you the developer? No?
There is not enough evidence to support Jigglypuff being male nor female. However, since there is a chance that Jigglypuff CAN be male, then the original point is still valid.
(Oh man, I didn’t think of that. Come on Phoenix, think!)
No one here is saying it couldn’t be male, but given the situation and the title, it’s clear to assume the Jigglypuff in question is female, especially through the art given. While I’m not the developer, I am able to recognize patterns when they’re presented.
Furthermore, gender is generally established by clothing in these games, such as with Pikachu’s mostly male outfits.
In addition, I have evidence that said Pikachu is indeed male, given it’s tail. Just look at the design of the tail for a male and female tail.
You can clearly see that the Pikachu in question is male, thus giving precedence for gender coded outfits.
You’re going to have to give some evidence other than ‘25% gender ratio’ if you want to prove otherwise Edgeworth.
(After today I’m done with balloons, they’re too much trouble.)
