The endless line of Super Mario Maker costumes continues to move at full speed, and naturally these next costumes fall in line with another popular Nintendo franchise. It's Pokémon's 20th anniversary and so Nintendo has opted to celebrate this in part by adding Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander costumes into Super Mario Maker.
Additionally, there's a new event course that centers around the types of all three Pokémon, giving each one plenty of screen time. Check it out below:
What do you think? Will you be playing with any of these three often? Which of the three starters is your favorite? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
I really like how they added the original pokémon sounds. I hope there will ever be an update where they'll add sounds for the other pokémon too.
I usually ignore these, but I've gotta have those costumes.
Yay, more pokemon costumes
Gotta get these just for fun. Really don't have ideas for courses for them atm, though.
So excited. So you get 3 mushrooms for one level?
Finally, the Pokémon Company decides to wake up for long enough to actually allow sound effects in their costumes! Hooray!
The course looks good and more costumes are welcome. Sony would have charged at least £20 for all the stuff Mario Maker has had for free so far. We'll done Nintendo, keep it coming. Happy to pay for more substantial dlc though.
This is pretty neat, I have to get these.
Need to design a course where charmander evolves in a volcanoe now! Shame there's no charmeleon :/
@JohnnyC ''Sony would have charged at least £20 for all the stuff Mario Maker has had for free so far.''
If you don't know what you're talking about, don't say anything at all. Meanwhile there's Smash with €5-6 per character; Nintendo isn't setting an example either.
That music! T_T Such nostalgia.
@WillTheLion According to Serebii you get 1 costume per play, so 3 plays total for all 3 costume.
I wish the Pokemon Amiibo had sounds!
Wait, so I'll get to play as my favorite Pokémon of all time, my boy Squirtle?! HUZZAH! AWESOME!... HUZZAWESOME!
See, I'm not grumpy all the time.
Brilliant! Can't wait to get these
Ah! So good! I need them all, especially Squirtle.
Someone should start a petition to get sounds for the original Pokemon costumes.
I'm so happy that they actually have sounds this time.
Yay, sound effects!!! Makes the victory that much sweeter.
Yay!! More Pokemon stuff! I love all these skins, but that Bulbasaur is my favorite. Gotta love bulbasaur.
That was a fun level! Certainly enjoyed the multiple pathways.
This is really cool hopefully more pokemon get added in the future!
Having skipped over the games back in the 90's (didn't look interesting at the time despite my friends, and I was busy with Mario, Zelda, and some others) i can not decide which would be best. Between Red and Blue, I'd go Red, but then there is Yellow.. . I know it's more like the anime, which I kind of don't care, but if there are other improvements I might.
Those sound effects hit me right in the nostalgia.
Looking good. What would make this Pokemon 20th anniversary even better is if the other Pokemon Costumes get unique sound effect and animation (Jump, Swim, Climb, etc) as well.
These are reeeealy good! Glad they're not all a single costume like Paper Mario Trio and stuff.
@Octane Got to say I agree here. With Smash pricing and the Fire Emblem 3 games shenanigans plus map packs Nintendo isn't exactly Mother Theresa here.
@Whopper744 Personally, I don't see a point in getting Red or Blue when you could just get FireRed/LeafGreen instead (unless you no longer have anything that plays GBA games). As for Yellow, in addition to the animé references, you also get a much improved moveset for Pikachu (and the ability to teach Charizard Fly), some updated sprites, the ability to get all three original starters without trading, and an extra multiplayer battle mode (and if you care, the Missingno glitch was fixed). There's also an added Surfing Pikachu minigame, but unfotunately it will probably be unavailable with no way to teach Pikachu Surf.
@bezerker99 Who's that character in your avatar? Looks kind of like Deadpool with big eyes.
@Octane I do know what I'm talking about my friend, having owned every Sony console since the PS2 (at the time of the PS1, I couldn't afford two consoles and chose the N64 instead) and building up a hefty library of games on all of them, including the handhelds. Two of my favourite games of the last generation are Sony exclusives Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us. Both amazing games which dazzled myself and millions of other gamers, but both full of DLC which - while some was admittedly substantial and excellent - jumped on the bandwagon of charging for cosmetic extras, which Mario Maker is giving away for free. I'm conscious that Nintendo have done the same with Smash costumes, which should have been unlockable extras (I don't mind paying for the characters and stages, although even those feel a little steep compared to what Capcom charge for Street Fighter characters), just making the observation that Nintendo could have fleeced fans with Mario Maker but took the high road and chose not to.
