    Later I will be picking up a controller for my wii, right now I am using the wii mote for playing emulators and ssbb and well it's bad I cannot get used to the feeling. I see that gamecube contoller would be best since I play gamecube games and ssbb but I hear that it's awkward to use for SNES and n64 games (I wouldn't know) I don't own one. Now I also see classic controller and the pro which looks good for emulation but can't use them for gamecube and ssbb would seem harder I guess?

    Which controller is best for all that I mentioned? Also do the wii u fight pad work for everything?

    For emulators the closest your will get to feel like it a retro controller is the classic controller. But if you would like to play gamecube and emulators then the wii pro controller is the best for both world.
    Make sure your are buying the wii pro controller not wii u pro controller.

    I can vouch for the Classic Controller Pro. I own an original CC and it's okay but the CCP is far more comfortable to hold. It's the best overall controller for Wii and VC games, you can use it with GC games with Nintendont, and a bunch of Wii U games support it too.

    So the classic controllers will work for gamecube games? I am a little confused.

    Can anyone vouch for the classic controller for playing ssbb? I want tight and smooth feel while playing.

    The best controller to use is the official controller for the console you are playing. You can get adapters to adapt a NES/SNES controller to the Wii controller connection. The same connection the classic controller plugs into. The same can be done for N64. Hopefully your Wii has GameCube ports. If it does, plug an official controller in to use with nintendont. Search Amazon.com and http://www.raphnet-tech.com/ to find these adapters.
