Pokeballs - They SUCK now. I'm used to always running towards them when they appear but now there's no point, I get the same 3 or 4 pokemon every time and they suck, they disappear heaps quicker now too. Why does Kyogre, the STRONGEST POKEMON EVER, do some ultra lame splash attack? Items don't appear often enough either, set to the highest frequency they are nowhere near as frequent as in Melee. I tried playing pokeball only matches with Brawl but it was horrible. Which retarded RPG dev guy on this trainwreck Brawl dev team was so offended by Pokemon being better than all the RPGs he ever made had to mention to everyone "hey guys I think the pokeballs are a bit too strong" and the rest of the team is even dumber for listening to him.
There's not enough Assist Trophies either, and I always seem to get the same old ones popping up.
Also i'm sure it's been mentioned a million times before but the interface is one of the worst in gaming history. THE POINTER IS THERE LET ME USE IT!
All the "hard" unlockables just seem to give you lame ass stickers or trophies, completely killing any sense of accomplishment you might feel afterwards. I beat Event 41 on hard and got NOTHING. (getting CDs however is awesome, but that's off topic)
The stickers have to be the lamest thing in any game ever. Getting a sticker feels like punishment to me. There must have been one guy on the Brawl team incredibly bored so he came up with this idea so they just assigned him to making stickers throughout it's entire development.
When playing with three CPUs, they always seem to mostly attack me, whether i'm winning or not. Every single time without fail the CPU gets a final smash, it's always aimed at me, it's like the other CPU guys disappear when that happens.
Music frequency selector seems broken to me. I have one song on full that gets played just as much as one that's up one fifth of the way. Can these guys even program?
