There was also the World Wide Web Fight.

That's more accurately termed "WWWF Grudge Match," which was great for a short while in the history of the early internet.

I'll say this for them. They got it right in Aquaman vs. The Sub-Mariner.

This fight would be over in a heartbeat if he'd picked Jigglypuff.

Back in my day, the internet was full of coke machines attached to the internet and long conversations about who would win in a fight? Jeannie or Samantha? And we liked it. I also wore an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time.

I'm also looking forward to Street Fighter vs. My Little Pony. (Sonic Boom!)

I think he underestimates Fluttershy. She'd stare 'em all down.

Ahem. What? Someone told me that. My, er, wife. Yes.

And there must be a battlefield application for those surprisingly good sewing skills.

I am here to register my ambiguously ironic appreciation of this concerted attack on masculinity.

Which of the combination of Pokemon, WWE and My Little Pony are you referring to?

It isn't so much about any of the source material as the fact of equating them all.

This is a mistake on Sims's part, but it doesn't make any difference to the conclusion. In fact, Emboar is doomed to be stared down and sent off crying the minute Applejack goes down, because he just hurt one of Fluttershy's friends. And you do not. Hurt. Her. Friends.

Unfortunately, next up is Snorlax, and not only does Fluttershy not have a beef against Snorlax, but she couldn't do anything about it if she did--because Snorlax never opens his eyes.

I'm still not sure that the ponies wouldn't win in the end, though, because Twilight Sparkle would have studied the entire Pokédex in detail. She would therefore know that 1) any time a Magikarp shows up it will evolve into Gyarados at the least opportune time and 2) Gyaradoses spam Hyper Beam, which has a critical recharge period after the blast. Anypony worth her salt lick can find a way to exploit that.

Hyper Beam is a normal-type move, though; I don't know that Twi has access to anypony who could credibly be described as a rock, steel, or (preferably) ghost type.

Spike EATS rocks, I think he could handle it.

Sims has Rainbow Dash going down to the first Hyper Beam. That means that Twilight has an immediate opportunity. Twilight knows that Flying/Water types are extremely vulnerable to electric attacks, and she's watched The Great and Powerful Trixie summon lightning--twice! Put it all together, and Twilight Sparkle has Thunderbolt and a free round to use it in. A freshly-evolved Gyarados is no match.

Also, Pinkie Pie has a pretty powerful electric buzzer, so there's that...
