Yeah, when I think of ability combos, my mind immediately goes to Kirby 64 style (which I suppose makes sense), leading to a more "this ability does this thing and then, like, that's it actually" style.
The only thing I don't like about this ability is that, while an anchor is themed with water, the ability doesn't actually involve water in any way (except not being pushed by currents, but that applies to wind also). Even if it was as simple as damaging water drops like from Parasol to say "yeah, yup, this is still part Water". Actually, that's what I was expecting Sturdy Swing to have.
I'm definitely People! I suppose to be fair I've remarked on such things before and Bimblesnaff said it was okay, but I still feel Mailbag is a better home for questions that can't particularly be answered definitively.
But hey, it is 'Snaff's Guruzing. Or maybe just Guruing. If he thinks a question is good enough for Gurus, I won't question his judgment.
