If you’re anything like me, you simply cannot wait to get your hands on the new Super Smash Bros. games heading to the Wii U and 3DS later this year. People have been divided in opinion regarding the legitimacy of recent leaks and rumours of the final character roster, but one thing we do know for sure is that we will be introduced to an army of new Pokémon to enjoy.

Nintendo’s official website for the upcoming releases now includes a new page, which lists all of the attacks that some of our favorite Pokémon will bring to the arena. For example, Fennekin can use its Incinerate attack “to create fire pillars in front of it” and “cause repeated damage strikes,” while Arceus can use Gravity “to slam down any nearby airborne opponents.”

Perhaps most interestingly is Xerneas’ powers, which causes “everyone’s launch power [to] increase.” The description continues, stating that Xerneas “will make opponents with even a small amount of damage easier to launch. The player who summoned Xerneas will get the biggest power boost.” You can check out details and screenshots on many more Pokémon on the website.


Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is launching October 3, with the Wii U version awaiting a final date. With announcements still coming almost daily, we are expecting an action-packed game for Nintendo fans to savor.
