The gamepad is mile better that the 3ds controls :p, is easy to get used to, I can play any game on that thing but I would destroyed with smash that's why I have a wii u pro controller :P

Yeah, I thought I was gonna need a Pro Controller for Mario Kart 8 and in the end absolutely loved playing it on the GamePad. Still, I just feel like Smash is too intense for that controller - it's just too wide and I can't get a really strong grip on it, which is something I'd naturally do in tense situations (which is pretty much every situation in competitive Smash). I think it might do the job, but honestly Circle Pad aside I think the 3DS is a better option.
