The lights are on
Today’s daily Super Smash Bros. image features a familiar Pokémon face, and a relatively new one.
Pikachu was one of the first characters unveiled for the game, but Xerneas’ involvement is a new mystery. He could be simply be one of the Poké Ball items, a new stand-a-lone fighter, or part of the yet-to-be confirmed Pokémon trainer’s team.
Of the three predictions above, I am guessing that Xerneas will just be one of the Poke Ball items in the game. He’s not noteworthy enough (yet) to be his own fighter, and we don’t even know if the Pokémon trainer will be making a return or not.
Nintendo recently revealed that Sonic and Toon Link would both be making a return in Super Smash Bros., which you can read about here and here.

I honestly cannot wait for this game- I loved the Brawl for Wii but can't take it everywhere, which sucks. The graphics look wonderful. From what I've seen, my 3DS is getting a lot more action.
I'd love it for Xerneas to be a fighter, but I doubt he will. I think he would be so fun to play as.
I can't wait to play this game.
If it isn't a Poke Ball summon, it's probably a part of a stage (like Spear Pillar in Brawl).
Or, maybe it's a flamboyant cactus that looks like Xerneas...
Still holding out for a Fawful reveal.
Cool. The more pokemon the better. I can't wait to see more of this game. I love the series. I need a release date. This will be the reason why I pick up a Wii U. This and the new LoZ.
I wanna play as snorlax.
As he was one of my favorite fighters, I hope Pokemon Trainer returns as a fighter, albeit maybe with starters pulled from multiple generations this time. How about Froakie, Grovyle, and Typhlosion?
