Pokémon Change is the Pokémon Trainer's down special move—and by extension the down special move of Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur—in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The move is derived from the ability for Pokémon Trainers in general to switch out their Pokémon during a Pokémon battle.
Upon using the move, Pokémon Trainer can switch between using Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard in that order. Pokémon Change is automatically used whenever the active Pokémon's stamina is depleted or if the Pokémon has been KO'd. This move cannot be used immediately after respawning nor is it usable in midair. Status effects are also not carried over between Pokémon, though damage percentages are, and a Pokémon's stamina recharges while it is not in use.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the move is much faster, and the stamina mechanic is removed. It can also be done in midair.
