@OneBagTravel
Mewtwo was the post-game final boss in the first generation of Pokemon (Red and Blue). It was also featured very prominently in the very first Pokemon movie (and its straight-to-DVD sequel). In both the games and the anime Mewtwo is a very powerful pokemon with a tragic backstory (created by humans from Mew's DNA, then enslaved until he broke free). He's also a no-nonsense, badass lone wolf, and those types tend to become fan favorites very easily.

@ColdingLight : "Why intentionally remove a VERY liked and appreciated feature from the last games??? Why?"

In an interview, the director/producer/whatever said that they did it because "Brendan and May are established characters", and they don't want anyone to change their looks. Yeah, that "reason" is bullcrap at best, but what can you do?

XY will still be relevant in the sense that it's extremely likely you won't be able to get any of the three Kalos starters, the legendary XYZ trio, the three elemental birds and Mewtwo in ORAS (so you'd need to export them from XY).

The only reason Nintendo doesn't patch XY for better compatibility with ORAS is because they want people to buy the latter. Patching an older game -as neat as that would have been- won't give them nearly as much money. It's all -and it's always been- about money, people!

@FritzFrapp
Actually, entering the wall of bricks like that is pretty difficult to pull off without tool assistance. It requires pixel-perfect positioning, speed and angle, and there's also a very, very small window of opportunity to press the jump button before the wall ejects you. Heck, it's hard even WITH tool assistance.

GeminiSaint commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

I'm surprised at how many people assumed Tharja was a playable character in SSB4. Clearly they just read the title and nothing else. She was a trophy, people. Just a trophy, and nothing else. It's in the article you didn't read.

GeminiSaint commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:

The "code of honor" line seems more like speculation on the part of the developers to me. It could have been something as simple as this game crossing the line of what's permissible in a Mario game. And, well, some of the moves in that video are definitely more brutal and graphic than anything in Smash Brothers.
