Final Smash Water Sprout


Squirtle is a returning playable character, first appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and reappearing in Super Smash Bros. Calamity along with Ivysaur without Pokémon Trainer with him, like how Charizard wasn't with Pokémon Trainer in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Wii U/3DS.

Changes

Notice Just like Ivysaur in this game and Charizard in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Wii U/3DS, Squirtle is no longer with Pokémon Trainer, this means most of Squirtle's moveset is changed, mostly its Pokémon Change down special.

Buff Up smash is stronger.

Notice New up aerial, a tail flip similar to Pikachu's and Pichu's up aerial.

Buff Waterfall is stronger.

Buff New down special, Bubble, which is very useful for spacing and stopping frontal approaches.
