All The Characters, Stages, Assist Trophies, And Pokémon Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

by Brian Shea on Nov 05, 2018 at 01:10 PM

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is poised to be one of this holiday season's biggest releases. When the Switch entry in the long-running franchise was unveiled at E3 2018, fans were shocked to learn about the scope of the new title; not only was the Smash team adding a few new characters and stages, but also including every character and a huge percentage of the stages that have ever appeared in the series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

With more than 70 characters and 100 stages announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we decided to gather them all in one place and organize them by franchise. In addition, we've scoured footage from the several times Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been shown to compile a list of Pokémon appearing both in Poké Balls and the Pokémon-themed stages.

Pokémon

Pokémon

Unlike characters and stages, figuring out which Pokémon are in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a bit trickier. While Nintendo has released a list of new Pokémon set to appear in Poké Balls, for Pokémon appearing in the stages themselves, we had to do a bit more research. We were able to confirm two stages by watching the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Invitational from E3 2018. The other Pokémon stages haven't been shown publicly, but we noticed a strong correlation between the Pokémon that appear in stages in Ultimate and the Pokémon that appeared in those same stages previously. Because of this, we can surmise that those Pokémon have a strong likelihood to appear in the Ultimate versions of those stages. We've noted which ones are assumptions in the stage names.
