Character Description

Pikachu is a small mouse-like Pokémon with short, yellow fur (with brown markings on the back), pointy, black-tipped ears, red circles on its cheeks, and a tail in the shape of a lightning bolt. It can charge electricity from its red cheeks and tail. It can also cause electric storms and thunders. Pikachu has a less evolved form, Pichu, and an evolved one, Raichu. Pikachu has appeared in almost every Pokémon game to date, but does not have a starring role since the 2000s. However, He is still one of the most famous Pokémon in the games and in the anime, which has lead him as the main representative of the Pokémon series to the Super Smash Bros. games.


Pikachu is one of the fastest fighters in the game. He has very strong special moves, excellent smash attacks and tilts, the ability to crawl, he is very flexible, being able to wall jump, and has great recovery. Pikachu is a small target, which makes it harder for opponents to hit him. He can dodge attacks by simply crouching. However, he comes with a price, being one of the lightest characters in the game. Pikachu is better on the ground, where he can charge his Smash Attacks and KO easily. As for his Special Moves, his Side Special, Skull Bash, and his Up Special, Quick Attack, are great for recovering. His most well-known Special Move is Thunder, his Down Special Move, which can easily KO opponents and dealing great damage.
