When I think of characters who could appear in the upcoming Smash Bros. games, I didn’t think we would see another Pokemon. So to my surprise, series director Sakurai has uploaded a screenshot to the Miiverse of the fifth generation musical legendary Meloetta has joined the fray.
Attached to the screenshot was the following: –
Remember the video that introduced Greninja joining the battle? Every Pokémon that appeared in that video will make some kind of appearance in Super Smash Bros! By the way, here’s one of the Pokémon that didn’t make an appearance in that video–Meloetta. Its vocal attacks reflect off land forms, so they’ll be especially effective in a closed environment.
While it’s yet to be confirmed if Meloetta is a playable character, assist trophy or Pokemon appearing from a Pokeball, we’ll hopefully hear more later on in the week.
The 3DS iteration of Super Smash Bros. will be hitting during Winter this year. The Wii U iteration will be hitting sometime in the Summer this year.. No doubt we will see more in the Smash Bros. dedicated stream at E3 2014 this year.
