SSBM Trophy Pikachu (Classic).png
Pokémon Red & Blue
It's safe to say that Pikachu is the most famous and popular of all Pokémon. It has electric pouches in both cheeks; when in danger, it shoots electricity at its enemies. Although Pikachu can evolve into Raichu by exposure to a Thunderstone, many trainers like Pikachu so much that they don't let it evolve.

B: Thunder Jolt
Smash B: Skull Bash
While its electrical attacks, such as Thunder and Thunder Jolt, are powerful, Pikachu is at its best speeding around the fray and waiting for its chance to strike. You can control the path of Pikachu's two-directional Quick Attack, allowing you to jump twice. Hold down the B Button to charge up Skull Bash.

Down & B: Thunder
The angle of the Control Stick controls the direction of Pikachu's Quick Attack. Pikachu will move blindingly fast, and it will also cause damage to any character it runs into. Move the Control Stick during Quick Attack and Pikachu will move in up to two directions. Be sure to check out the ceilings on the level when you use Thunder.

  • Snake: What? The yellow thing?
  • Mei Ling: That's Pikachu. It's a Pokémon. They're popular all over the world, you know. And it may look cute, but be careful, It can store up large amounts of electricity in those adorable little cheeks. It'll try to pepper you with electric shocks.
  • Snake: Couldn't be much worse than Ocelot's old torture device...
  • Mei Ling: Oh, and, Snake?
  • Snake: What?
  • Mei Ling: I was wondering, could you maybe try and catch Pikachu for me? Pleeeeease?
  • Snake: Give me a break! What do I look like, a Pokémon Trainer?
  • Mei Ling: Fine... Sorry I asked.

  • American English: Recognized the world over, Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon that stores energy in its cheeks for use in battle. In Smash Bros., Pikachu is a well-rounded fighter with speedy, powerful electric attacks. Quick Attack can be used twice in a row if two directions are input, one after another.
  • British English: Pikachu is famous worldwide as the face of the Pokémon series. There's a lot of electricity stored in those rosy cheeks, and in this game, that allows for some devastating attacks, like Thunder Jolt. Tip: Input another direction after using Quick Attack to get a second burst. It's top-notch for recoveries!

  • American English: Pikachu's Thunder Jolt fires off a ball of electricity that bounces across the stage, getting weaker as it travels. It does more damage to enemies in the air. The default down special, Thunder, causes a lightning strike that both shocks opponents and turns Pikachu invincible for a split second.

Palutena's Guidance

  • Viridi: Aw, look at that cute little guy.
  • Pit: It's a Pokémon!
  • Palutena: And not just any Pokémon!
  • Viridi: Actually, that Pokémon is called a Pikachu. Pikachu evolves from Pichu. And when a Pikachu is fully evolved, it becomes a Raichu.
  • Palutena: It's quite rare for a Pokémon to be more famous in its middle stage than its final evolution.
  • Viridi: True, but Pikachu is a special case. I mean, it's the most famous of all the Pokémon.
  • Pit: Uh, excuse me! Hello?
  • Palutena: What is it, Pit?
  • Pit: I hate to interrupt your musings on Pokémon, but I could really use some Smash Bros. help right about now!
  • Palutena: Oh, right. I forgot where we were. OK, here's a tip: dodge Pikachu's Thunder, and then counterattack.
  • Viridi: You can also zap Pikachu by reflecting its Thunder back at itself! And nothing is more satisfying than that!

Super Smash Blog bio

"This fierce fighter uses electric moves like Thunder Jolt and Thunder. Pikachu Libre is one of the alternate costumes and you can tell she's female by the shape of her tail."


  • Pikachu has charmed fans and given a jolt to opponents for nearly 20 years—whether in the Pokémon TV series, the Pokémon Trading Card Game, or Pokémon video games, Pikachu has always been there as a stalwart companion for any Pokémon Trainer willing to take on the challenge of becoming the very best.

  • Zap! This Pokémon has electric sacs on both its cheeks. Its opponents are in for a shock!
    Watch out when Pikachu raises its tail to check its surroundings, because lightning has been known to strike its tail when it does this! If you use a Thunder Stone on it, it will evolve into another Pokémon: Raichu.
