We haven’t had much Pokemon on the site lately, but thanks to Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai, we’ll finally get some much needed pocket monster content on the barn again. This time around, it’s a screenshot from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U, and it’s showcasing the thunder attack of our favorite yellow electric rodent, Pikachu.
“Pikachu’s Thunder now starts off with a thundercloud that deals a Meteor Smash! From left to right, you can see this combo starting with Pikachu throwing the opponent upward, Meteor Smashing with the lightning strike, and then directly attacking. Foes can dodge, of course, so the attack won’t hit consistently, but when it does, it sure feels good!”
