Description for Lopunny

Lopunny is one of the default characters in Super Smash Bros. Zenith. Lopunny is a feminine rabbit Pokémon that evolved from Buneary via strong friendship. Lopunny is not one of the most well-known Pokémon, but has appeared in a slew of sidegames, and recently received a Mega Evolution alongside some of the more classic Pokémon.

Lopunny is new in the Smash game. In Zenith, Lopunny possesses quite a few strong moves and his a high jumper, yet is quite light and doesn't recover from powerful attacks that much in comparison to others.


Lopunny debuts in the fourth Generation of Pokémon, in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for the Nintendo DS. Lopunny is the evolved form of Buneary, a small Normal-type rabbit Pokémon that can be found in the Eterna Forest. Despite Lopunny's appearance, it can be equally male as female.

Lopunny has appeared in a few more Pokémon spinoffs, including Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, in which it led an exploration team with two other feminine Pokémon, and PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, in which it appears as a dance instructor in a minigame.

Most notably, Lopunny's most recent appearance in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire gave this Pokémon a Mega Evolution. The required Mega Stone could be obtained in Mauville City.

Lopunny's moves appear to be inspired by Lopunny's learnset in the main Pokémon games as of Generation 6. Its leitmotif appears from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, however. Lopunny also gets to Mega Evolve in this game.

Lopunny A cute rabbit Pokémon that can be quite vain, caring about its ears (which it always grooms in a perfect state!) so much that you should beware when you accidentally touch them too roughly. Because then Lopunny's ready to send you flying far! Lopunny's also extremely cautious, bounding off quickly when it senses danger around. But Lopunny can put up a fight - especially when it Mega Evolves... DS Pokémon Diamond/Pearl (2007) Clear Straight Classic as Lopunny
3DS Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire (2014)
Lopunny (Alt) Lopunny has quite an array of moves you should watch out for: a well timed attack during its Bounce might end up in a Meteor Smash instead of a Footstool Jump, and that's not pretty. Lopunny's Return becomes stronger the longer Lopunny hasn't used it yet, and Jump Kick can cause some serious damage too. And to top it all off, Magic Coat not only reflects all projectiles, but also doubles the power of said projectile! DS Pokémon Diamond/Pearl (2007) Clear Multipath Classic as Lopunny
3DS Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire (2014)
Mega Lopunny Perhaps you are unaware that Lopunny's got a Mega Evolution. But now you should know, because it's its Final Smash. Mega Lopunny's inner fighting skills awaken during the transformation, and as a result, it becomes twice as powerful AND speedy (faster than Sonic, man might say)! One more thing: Mega Lopunny has surprisingly become just as aggressive as a Primeape, and becomes more easily agitated. So mocking it... is a seriously bad idea. 3DS Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire (2014) Clear Regular All-Star as Lopunny
Wii U Super Smash Bros. Zenith (-)
Giga Impact Lopunny's custom Final Smash. In the Pokémon games, Giga Impact is basically a Tackle with the same power as a Hyper Beam (as a result, you still have to recharge). In Zenith, Lopunny first Mega Evolves before doing the actual attack, which is charging at its opponents! A powerful Giga Impact executed by the already powerful Mega Lopunny obviously hits like a truck, but can be avoided. If Lopunny hits nothing, it flies off the stage. Wii U Super Smash Bros. Zenith (-) Clear Random All-Star as Lopunny

Pokémon Attacks

Name Image Description Appears In How to Unlock
Return Return is a move with a power that varies with friendship: it becomes more powerful the stronger the bond is between the Pokémon and its Trainer. In a way, the Pokémon returns its favor in a powerful attack. Despite marking its debut in Gold and Silver, Lopunny is the only Pokémon to learn it naturally. In Smash, it is Lopunny's regular Special Move, and it becomes more powerful when time passes. GBC Pokémon Gold/Silver (2000) Random Trophy
DS Pokémon Black/White (2011)
Bounce The Pokémon jumps in the air for one turn, then jumps on the opponent on the next. In Smash, though, Lopunny executes its bounce a little differently. For one, it doesn't take a whole turn to fall down. And hitting an opponent while doing do causes a Footstool Jump that sends Lopunny even higher. But, attack at the right time and Lopunny Meteor Smashes its opponents. By the way, Bounce is also Greninja's Down Aerial, which works even more differently!

Team Charm Team Charm is an expert exploration team, with three charming amazons of Pokémon as its members. There's the intelligent Gardevoir, who always plans ahead. Then there's Medicham, who is the strong brawn of the group. And then there's Lopunny, the team leader that likes to see things on the beautiful side. As they are a Master Rank team, it would be an honor to work alongside them... even if it were a challenge. DS Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (2009) Random Trophy
Buneary The unevolved form of Lopunny, who even then looks as cute as ever! And you, as a trainer, can find this rabbit in several locations: the Eterna Forest, Kanto's Route 25, Castelia City, and most recently, Hoenn's Safari Zone. However, when you catch this Pokémon, you might notice that it despises you just as much as a Mewtwo would! And you need to evolve it by friendship... that's gonna take a while.
