Pikachu Poses With A Bashful Xerneas In Super Smash Bros.

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 think my Xerneas has a Docile nature.
    Hey, Pokemon jokes. XD
  • Screw you, Pikachu.

    Now, let's have some Alex Roivas in Smash Bros.
  • Dem graphics. Seriously, this game is ****ing gorgeous
  • 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 hope they have Wolf
  • Xerneas would actually look cool if he didn't look like a flippin' robot. He looks like he has armor on instead of fur.
  • Just not excited for this game. It'll be cool to play it on the 3DS (mobile Smash Bros would be great for sure!) but it just looks and feels... the same.
  • 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.

  • PIKA PI!!!!

  • Not excited for anything Nintendo right now...
  • 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...

  • Probably a pokeball pokemon. I'm curious as to what Pokemon fighters they'll have, though. I guess Lucario could make a return since Lucario is still front and center in the new games, but Mewtwo could also make a return. I'd like something new. Xerneas would be fun.
  • Still holding out for a Fawful reveal.

  • Fourth possibility: Pokemon stage with pokemon in the background and Xenreas being one of the pokemons that maybe does something that players have to avoid.
  • 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?

  • Xerneas is not going to be in smash bros as a character. you cant, CANNOT have a four legged animal of any sort that stands ON ALL FOURS and put it in a fighting game. even bowsers technical arms can be considered front feet but he stands up right, punches and kicks. sorry but ill be damned if the community is going to speculate whether or not were going to have A *** DEER IN A FIGHTING GAME. if they do that, why cant we play as the bears or meese from Bucks Big game hunting. Thats a nintendo righted product too, isnt it? I cant wait to play as a *** Bidoof either lmao
