Pokémon is one of the franchises with the biggests representation in Super Smash Bros. Versus. This page shows all of the Pokémon that appear in the game.
Poké Ball Pokémon
Meowth (Japanese: ニャース Nyarth) is a Normal-type Pokémon. It evolves into Persian starting at level 28. In Alola, Meowth has a regional variant that is Dark-type. It evolves into Alolan Persian when leveled up with high friendship. It lies around all day, becoming active near dusk. At night, it wanders the city in search of loose change. It loves shiny things. It often fights with Murkrow over prey they're both trying to catch.
Meowth throws a barrage of coins left or right in the opponent's direction. Though it will turn to face the opponent that is closest to it. In addition, falling from above onto Meowth will cause the victim to be locked into the rush of coins and thus take heavy damage, allowing a maximum of approximate 300% if smash attacks are used on the trapped victim.
Electrode (Japanese: マルマイン Marumine) is an Electric-type Pokémon. It evolves from Voltorb starting at level 30. Electrode eats electricity in the atmosphere. On days when lightning strikes, you can see this Pokémon exploding all over the place from eating too much electricity. One of Electrode's characteristics is its attraction to electricity. It is a problematical Pokémon that congregates mostly at electrical power plants to feed on electricity that has just been generated.
Electrode is both used as an item and appears out of a Poké Ball. When Electrode comes out of the Poké Ball, it will just sit on the stage, but will start to get darker over a period of a few seconds. This serves as warning that Electrode is about to explode. When Electrode explodes, everyone in the blast radius (including the character who summoned Electrode) will take heavy damage that is almost equal to a Bob-omb, and can KO characters at even low percentages. However, there is a chance that it will fail to explode, and it can only be picked up when this occurs. When a thrown Electrode collides with the ground or another player, it explodes.
Weezing (Japanese: マタドガス Matadogas) is a Poison-type Pokémon. It evolves from Koffing starting at level 35. Weezing loves the gases given off by rotted kitchen garbage. This Pokémon will find a dirty, unkempt house and make it its home. At night, when the people in the house are asleep, it will go through the trash. Weezing alternately shrinks and inflates its twin bodies to mix together toxic gases inside. The more the gases are mixed, the more powerful the toxins become. The Pokémon also becomes more putrid.
Weezing will fly a little bit up in the air and will squeeze its eyes. Smoke will be released out of Weezing and will create a giant Smokescreen in the area where Wheezing is. If Weezing is at the edge of Final Destination the Smokescreen will cover a quarter of the stage, and the same size off-stage. It has no additional effects other than blinding the players in that spot.
Staryu (Japanese: ヒトデマン Hitodeman) is a Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Starmie when exposed to a Water Stone. Large numbers of these Pokémon make their home at the seaside. At night, a strange red glow radiates from the center of their bodies. This Pokémon gets nibbled on by Lumineon and others. Thanks to its red core, it regenerates fast, so it's unconcerned by their snack attacks.
It will fly around the screen to find another character to shoot at. Once it stops moving and targets a character, Staryu will start to use Swift. Staryu will not move once it starts using Swift. Any character that makes contact with Swift will take damage. However, the attack can be easily DI'd out of. Any character can also take damage if they touch Staryu while it's using Swift attack. Staryu's attack does not harm the summoner.
Magikarp (Japanese: コイキング Koiking) is a Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Gyarados starting at level 20. Although weak and helpless, this Pokémon is incredibly fertile. They exist in such multitudes, you'll soon grow tired of seeing them. Its reckless leaps make it easy pickings for predators. On the bright side, many Pokémon enjoy longer life spans, thanks to Magikarp.
Magikarp flops around on the stage helplessly until it disappears or has fallen off the stage. It is one of two completely harmless Pokémon in the game, the other being the cute legendary's. Magikarp does not have any hitboxes; none of its attacks give damage to any of the characters. Thus, it is established as the "dud" Pokémon of the Smash Bros. series.
Eevee (Japanese: イーブイ Eievui) is a Normal-type Pokémon. It evolves into one of eight different Pokémon through various methods. Possessing an unbalanced and unstable genetic makeup, it conceals many possible evolutions. Current studies show it can evolve into an incredible eight different species of Pokémon.
Eevee will evolve into one of its Eeveelutions. Every other evolution will performs another attack. Eevee itself however can also do an attack. There is a chance it won't evolve and does a Tail Whip. Eevee jumps a little bit forwards while whipping with its tail, but only causes minor damage.
Snorlax (Japanese: カビゴン Kabigon) is a Normal-type Pokémon. It evolves from Munchlax when leveled up with high friendship. Its stomach is said to be incomparably strong. Even Muk's poison is nothing more than a hint of spice on Snorlax's tongue. It eats nearly 900 pounds of food every day. It starts nodding off while eating—and continues to eat even while it's asleep.
Snorlax uses Body Slam as its attack. Snorlax jumps in the air and disappears off the screen. Snorlax will then inflate itself, making it bigger, and descend towards the bottom of the screen. Any character that makes contact with Snorlax will take damage. Snorlax also destroys certain things on a stage. It will detonate certain explosive items like Bob-ombs and Motion-Sensor Bombs. Snorlax's attack does not harm the summoner.
Moltres (Japanese: ファイヤー Fire) is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Along with Articuno and Zapdos, it is one of the three Legendary birds of Kanto. Moltres is a legendary bird Pokémon that has the ability to control fire. If this Pokémon is injured, it is said to dip its body in the molten magma of a volcano to burn and heal itself.
Moltres remains in the middle of the screen for a few seconds, then flies away. Any character that makes contact with Moltres will take 40% damage, and will be sent straight up dragging the opponent with them to the sky. But there is also a chance that Moltres meteor smashes them when flapping its wings downwards.
Mew (Japanese: ミュウ Mew) is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is a member of the Mew duo along with Mewtwo. Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.
When Mew appears on the stage it will simply hover in the air protected by a bubble around them. It will drop a trophy and/or CD which anyone can pick up and which will be added to their collection.
Chikorita (Japanese: チコリータ Chicorita) is a Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves into Bayleef starting at level 16, which evolves into Meganium starting at level 32. Along with Cyndaquil and Totodile, Chikorita is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto. In battle, Chikorita waves its leaf around to keep the foe at bay. However, a sweet fragrance also wafts from the leaf, becalming the battling Pokémon and creating a cozy, friendly atmosphere all around.
Chikorita will start shaking its head and send out a barrage of leaves from its head: the leaves travel in a straight line, dealing slash damage to opponents. The attack is rather brief and easily avoided, but as it consists in multiple, quick hits it can be rather difficult to get out of.
Hoothoot (Japanese: ホーホー Hoho) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon. It evolves into Noctowl starting at level 20. Hoothoot has an internal organ that senses and tracks the earth's rotation. Using this special organ, this Pokémon begins hooting at precisely the same time every day.
When Hoothoot appears out of its Poké Ball it will target an opponent and stand on top of their head. He then occasionally peck down in the opponents face. It will only do minor damage but he does it that many times that it does quite some damage. When you fall off stage, or almost get KO'd Hoothoot jumps off your head and flies away. So you can get rid of him if the character has a good recovery move.
Togepi (Japanese: トゲピー Togepy) is a Fairy-type baby Pokémon. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type Pokémon. It evolves into Togetic when leveled up with high friendship, which evolves into Togekiss when exposed to a Shiny Stone. As its energy, Togepi uses the positive emotions of compassion and pleasure exuded by people and Pokémon. This Pokémon then stores up feelings of happiness inside its shell, then shares them with others.
It uses Metronome as its attack. Togepi's Metronome deals out status effects to all characters within a certain radius. The summoner is not harmed by any of Togepi's Metronome attacks. Togepi's Metronome is made up of five attacks that are chosen randomly. The attacks are:
Leech Seed: This attack has the same effect as Lip's Stick. A flower is planted on the head of any players who are in Togepi's glowing attack radius. Without counting the flower damage, the attack hits consecutively with no knockback, and deals about 22%, with the first hit dealing the most damage.
Powder Snow: A blast of ice is shot out. Any character stuck in the blast radius will be frozen for a couple of seconds and take damage. Unlike other freezing attacks, Powder Snow is a meteor smash, and as a result has no noticable knockback on grounded characters. Deals about 10% damage.
Hypnosis: Togepi releases its Hypnosis, similar to Bellossom's attack. A character will fall asleep momentarily if he/she is in the attack's radius, taking about 10% damage. As other attacks that induce sleep, it doesn't affect mid-air characters.
Magnitude: Togepi starts shaking the ground. Anyone near Togepi will become imbedded into the ground for a couple of seconds, like the effect from Donkey Kong's Headbutt attack. This attack looks similar to Venusaur's attack. Hits a maximum of 3 times, each one doing 5% damage.
SmokeScreen: Togepi releases a black magic aura, which completely blackens the screen for a second, disorienting players, though computer-controlled characters are unaffected. The accuracy of the opponents are lowered as additional effect for the CPU's.
Xatu (Japanese: ネイティオ Natio) is a dual-type Psychic/Flying Pokémon. It evolves from Natu starting at level 25. Xatu stands rooted and still in one spot all day long. People believe that this Pokémon does so out of fear of the terrible things it has foreseen in the future. Xatu is known to stand motionless while staring at the sun all day long. Some people revere it as a mystical Pokémon out of their belief that Xatu is in possession of the power to see into the future.
Once Xatu appears he will just stand on the place he has been summoned. He quickly holds up one wings, the one into the direction the opponent is located. He returns to his normal pose and the fight continues. After a few seconds he will spread his wings and deal a meteor smash on the selected opponent. The tactic is to get your opponent off the stage while this happens, as it will result in an instant KO. This attack never misses and cannot be escaped. Xatu also is a rare Pokémon.
Bellossom (Japanese: キレイハナ Kireihana) is a Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves from Gloom when exposed to a Sun Stone. It is one of Oddish's final forms, the other being Vileplume. When Bellossom gets exposed to plenty of sunlight, the leaves ringing its body begin to spin around. This Pokémon's dancing is renowned in the southern lands. A Bellossom grows flowers more beautifully if it has evolved from a smelly Gloom—the more stinky the better. At night, this Pokémon closes its petals and goes to sleep.
Bellossom will use Sweet Scent as its attack. Bellossom will start dancing when it comes out of the Poké Ball. Any character that makes contact with the powder surrounding Bellossom will fall asleep. The character who is asleep cannot move until he or she is attacked or when Bellosom disappears, making this Pokémon ideal for characters who possess attacks with large Knockback.
Unown (Japanese: アンノーン Unknown) is a Psychic-type Pokémon. This Pokémon is shaped like ancient writing. It is a mystery as to which came first, the ancient writings or the various Unown. Research into this topic is ongoing but nothing is known.
When Unown is summoned, a random letter of Unown flies off the screen. This particular Unown will hit opponents with moderate knockback; the slash attack is more profound and can even KO. A group of Unown will then begin flying from one side of the screen to the opposite side diagonally. Any character that makes contact with the swarm of Unowns will take damage. The character that made contact with the Unowns will also be forced to the top of the screen. The character even has a chance of getting KO'd at low percentages. Unown's attack does not harm the summoner.
Wobbuffet (Japanese: ソーナンス Sonans) is a Psychic-type Pokémon. It evolves from Wynaut starting at level 15. If two or more Wobbuffet meet, they will turn competitive and try to outdo each other's endurance. However, they may try to see which one can endure the longest without food. Trainers need to beware of this habit. Wobbuffet does nothing but endure attacks—it won't attack on its own. However, it won't endure an attack on its tail. When that happens, the Pokémon will try to take the foe with it using Destiny Bond.
Wobbuffet rocks back and forth when the player attacks it or hits it with an item. Any character that makes contact with Wobbuffet's Counter will take damage. If Wobbuffet hasn't been hit, contact with it will still cause very minor knockback, but will cause no damage. The power of Wobbuffet's Counter attack varies. If Wobbuffet is hit with a weak attack, it won't wobble a lot. If Wobbuffet is hit with a strong attack, Counter will then cause more damage. Wobbuffet will wobble more intensly if hit with a powerful item. Characters will take more damage if they are hit with a faster wobbling Wobbuffet. Also, characters can get trapped in a Wobbuffet's Counter if it is not too powerful. Wobbuffet's attack harms both opponents and the summoner.
Suicune (Japanese: スイクン Suicune) is a Water-type Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Along with Raikou and Entei, it is one of the Legendary beasts resurrected by Ho-Oh after the burning of the Brass Tower. Of the three Legendary beasts, Suicune is said to represent the rains that quenched the flames of the burning Brass Tower. Suicune embodies the compassion of a pure spring of water. It runs across the land with gracefulness. This Pokémon has the power to purify dirty water.
When summoned Suicune performs an Aurora Beam, which fires horizontally and deals a 35%-damage blow to anyone in front of it. . The attack has one-hit KO power, but because it is also a semi-spike, characters with a grab aerial can survive by DI'ing downwards and attaching to the edge as they pass by. Touching Suicune before it attacks deals 4% freezing damage, while touching it afterwards deals 10% normal damage with a slash sound.
Lugia (Japanese: ルギア Lugia) is a dual-type Psychic/Flying Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is often considered to be part of the Tower duo with Ho-Oh, even sometimes as Ho-Oh's polar opposite. Silver represents Lugia as "guardian of the seas", and Gold represents Ho-Oh as "guardian of the skies." Lugia is also the trio master of the Legendary birds. Lugia's wings pack devastating power — a light fluttering of its wings can blow apart regular houses. As a result, this Pokémon chooses to live out of sight deep under the sea.
When summoned, Lugia will remain on the screen for a few seconds, and then fly off the screen to the background of the stage. Lugia will release an Aeroblast that will travel around the stage in a random pattern, that will move towards the direction of the summoner's opponents. Before Lugia flies off into the background to perform Aeroblast, any character that makes contact with Lugia will take 30% damage and sustain high vertical knockback.
Sceptile (Japanese: ジュカイン Jukain) is a Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves from Grovyle starting at level 36. It is the final form of Treecko. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Sceptile using the Sceptilite. The leaves growing on Sceptile’s body are very sharp edged. This Pokémon is very agile—it leaps all over the branches of trees and jumps on its foe from above or behind. Sceptile has seeds growing on its back. They are said to be bursting with nutrients that revitalize trees. This Pokémon raises the trees in a forest with loving care.
When Sceptile is released it will quickly Mega Evolve in Mega Sceptile. It then targets a player and will stand still. The blades on its arms will begin to glow and in the wink of a second he dashes forwards and slash the closest opponent if they are on his path and halt afterwards.
Torchic (Japanese: アチャモ Achamo) is a Fire-type Pokémon. It evolves into Combusken starting at level 16, which evolves into Blaziken starting at level 36. Along with Treecko and Mudkip, Torchic is one of three starter Pokémon of Hoenn. Torchic sticks with its Trainer, following behind with unsteady steps. This Pokémon breathes fire of over 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, including fireballs that leave the foe scorched black. Torchic has a place inside its body where it keeps its flame. Give it a hug—it will be glowing with warmth. This Pokémon is covered all over by a fluffy coat of down.
It uses Incinerate to attack opponents, which manifests as an attack similar to Ness's PK Fire. An ember is spit forwards with very short range at which point it explodes into flames. It will trap the opponent in the fire when they are hit by it.
Shroomish (Japanese: キノココ Kinococo) is a Grass-type Pokémon. It evolves into Breloom starting at level 23. Shroomish live in damp soil in the dark depths of forests. They are often found keeping still under fallen leaves. This Pokémon feeds on compost that is made up of fallen, rotted leaves. If Shroomish senses danger, it shakes its body and scatters spores from the top of its head. This Pokémon’s spores are so toxic, they make trees and weeds wilt.
Shroomish stays out for a rather long time, compared to other Pokémon. When he uses Stun Spore he will emit a gas around itself. Anyone caught in this area will be stunned allowing the opponent to attack them.
Shroomish stays out for a rather long time, compared to other Pokémon. When he uses Poison Powder he will emit a gas which has much less range than the Stun Spore but poisons the opponent and rapidly rises their damage for a few seconds.
High Jump Kick
Medicham (Japanese: チャーレム Charem) is a dual-type Fighting/Psychic Pokémon. It evolves from Meditite starting at level 37. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Medicham using the Medichamite. It is said that through meditation, Medicham heightens energy inside its body and sharpens its sixth sense. This Pokémon hides its presence by merging itself with fields and mountains. Through the power of meditation, Medicham developed its sixth sense. It gained the ability to use psychokinetic powers. This Pokémon is known to meditate for a whole month without eating.
Medicham jumps high in the air and kicks down towards the ground aiming for the opponent, high damage and knockback. It is a very quick attack immediately initiated after Medicham is released from its Poké Ball.
Manectric (Japanese: ライボルト Livolt) is an Electric-type Pokémon. It evolves from Electrike starting at level 26. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Manectric using the Manectite. Manectric is constantly discharging electricity from its mane. The sparks sometimes ignite forest fires. When it enters a battle, this Pokémon creates thunderclouds. Manectric discharges strong electricity from its mane. The mane is used for collecting electricity in the atmosphere. This Pokémon creates thunderclouds above its head.
When Manectric is released it will stomp on the ground once with its front legs and generate a terrain of electricity which electrifies the entire platform Manectric is on. This can be a small hovering platform, or the entire length of Final Destination even.
Gulpin (Japanese: ゴクリン Gokulin) is a Poison-type Pokémon. It evolves into Swalot starting at level 26. Virtually all of Gulpin’s body is its stomach. As a result, it can swallow something its own size. This Pokémon’s stomach contains a special fluid that digests anything. Most of Gulpin’s body is made up of its stomach—its heart and brain are very small in comparison. This Pokémon’s stomach contains special enzymes that dissolve anything.
When summoned, Gulpin will stay where summoned. If an opponent should come within range of Gulpin, it will open its mouth wide and swallow them. They will receive damage according to the amount they are contained in it. Other players can inflict damage to the opponent inside by hitting the Pokémon. They will be abruptly spat out in a few seconds. If the trapped player does button mashing, Gulpin will flail around as if the trapped character is trying to attack it, and Gulpin will spit the character out earlier than it is supposed to, decreasing the amount of damage done. The attack cannot harm the user. If playing as the Ice Climbers, if Popo is swallowed, the Ice Climbers will desynch and the player will be able to directly control Nana until Gulpin releases Popo.
Flygon (Japanese: フライゴン Flygon) is a dual-type Ground/Dragon Pokémon. It evolves from Vibrava starting at level 45. It is the final form of Trapinch. The flapping of its wings sounds something like singing. Those lured by the sound are enveloped in a sandstorm, becoming Flygon's prey. This Pokémon hides in the heart of sandstorms it creates and seldom appears where people can see it.
Flygon appears and flies above the stage. It will dive down as a random spot on the stage and slash with its tail on the ground making some sand fly through the air. Flygon will do this several times. Flygon's tail deals the most damage and has massive knockback while the sand only does very minor damage.
Metagross (Japanese: メタグロス Metagross) is a dual-type Steel/Psychic pseudo-legendary Pokémon. It evolves from Metang starting at level 45. It is the final form of Beldum. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross using the Metagrossite. It firmly pins its prey using its four claws and large body. Then the teeth in the mouth on its stomach chew the prey to bits. A linkage of two Metang, this Pokémon can perform any calculation in a flash by utilizing parallel processing in its four brains.
When summoned, it slams its arms in the ground. Any opponent caught in the shockwave is buried in the ground and takes heavy damage. When it slams its claw while the opponent is buried or in mid-air, they will be sent upward. It struggles to grab the claw back out of the ground, before slamming another in. It repeats this several times before disappearing. The attack does not harm the user.
Latias & Latios
Eon duo is a popular fan-created term that collectively refers to the Legendary Eon Pokémon Latias and Latios. They are also referred to as Lati@s (as the symbol "@" looks like an "a" inside an "o") or the Lati twins.
When summoned, both Latias and Latios scoot off in opposite directions (Latias will attack from the right, Latios from the left). They zoom back and cross paths in an X-fashion. The impact causes heavy damage, and knockback is rather strong. The winds from their speed pick up and affect items and characters, forming a sort of "vacuum" at their intersections. This can be extremely dangerous for light characters and those with poor recoveries because a player can easily get caught in a "vacuum" and get KO'd off the side or knocked too far away from the stage to recover.
Kyogre (Japanese: カイオーガ Kyogre) is a Water-type Legendary Pokémon. While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can undergo Primal Reversion and become Primal Kyogre if it holds the Blue Orb. Along with Groudon and Rayquaza, Kyogre is a part of the weather trio. Through Primal Reversion and with nature’s full power, it will take back its true form. It can summon storms that cause the sea levels to rise. Kyogre is said to be the personification of the sea itself. Legends tell of its many clashes against Groudon, as each sought to gain the power of nature.
When summoned from a Poké Ball, Kyogre starts floating in the air and shooting water from its mouth with Hydro Pump. While Kyogre's body does damage on contact the water it shoots just pushes back its targets and is useful for stopping recoveries. However, this attack cannot hit any player that is hanging on a ledge.
Groudon (Japanese: グラードン Groudon) is a Ground-type Legendary Pokémon. While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can undergo Primal Reversion and become Primal Groudon if it holds the Red Orb. Along with Kyogre and Rayquaza, Groudon is a part of the weather trio. Groudon is said to be the personification of the land itself. Legends tell of its many clashes against Kyogre, as each sought to gain the power of nature. Through Primal Reversion and with nature’s full power, it will take back its true form. It can cause magma to erupt and expand the landmass of the world.
Upon appearing it remains stationary, occasionally turning around, and uses Overheat, covering itself with a fiery aura which damages all opponents which come in contact with it. Its size makes it hard to avoid when it first appears. Groudon is arguably one of, if not the least effective legendary Pokémon in the game, due to its low damage output and inability to KO.
Piplup (Japanese: ポッチャマ Pochama) is a Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Prinplup starting at level 16, which evolves into Empoleon starting at level 36. Along with Turtwig and Chimchar, Piplup is one of three starter Pokémon of Sinnoh. It doesn't like to be taken care of. It's difficult to bond with since it won't listen to its Trainer. Because it is very proud, it hates accepting food from people. Its thick down guards it from the cold.
It uses its Surf attack to glide across the stage until it reaches a blast line or exceeds a time limit. Any character that gets caught in Piplup's surf will get washed away with it and will likely get KO'd while trapped, along with Piplup. The simpler the stage's terrain is, the more effective Piplup's Surf will be. Piplup can also be reflected. Sometimes Piplup will instantly use Surf.
Drifloon (Japanese: フワンテ Fuwante) is a dual-type Ghost/Flying Pokémon. It evolves into Drifblim starting at level 28. Stories go that it grabs the hands of small children and drags them away to the afterlife. It dislikes heavy children. If for some reason its body bursts, its soul spills out with a screaming sound.
Drifloon simply floats low around the stage waiting for the first one to pick it up. As you grab Drifloon your jump increases and you will descend slowly. However when falling off-stage and don't try to recover Drifloon will blow wind underneath itself and drag you along with it back to the stage. However after that Drifloon immediately disappears.
Bonsly (Japanese: ウソハチ Usohachi) is a Rock-type baby Pokémon. It evolves into Sudowoodo when leveled up while knowing Mimic. It does not deal well with water, so it lives in dry locales. Since its surroundings tend to lack greenery, it stands out noticeably. From its eyes, it can expel excess moisture from its body. This liquid is similar in composition to human sweat.
Bonsly is one of the Pokémon that appears out of a Poké Ball. If it is not picked up, it will walk back and forth along the ground, similar to a Bob-omb. When it appears, it can be picked up and thrown at enemies, but despite its small size, it is thrown and carried like a Crate rather than a normal item due to its weight. Given this, it won't fly very far when thrown, but it inflicts heavy knockback and damage against opponents it comes in contact with. When thrown, it will also bounce along the ground upon contact with it, while retaining its hitboxes. Like any thrown item, Bonsly can be reflected. It can usually only be thrown 3 times before disappearing.
Munchlax (Japanese: ゴンベ Gonbe) is a Normal-type baby Pokémon. It evolves into Snorlax when leveled up with high friendship. It needs to consume its own weight in food every day. As far as flavor is concerned, it's indifferent. When it finds something that looks like it might be edible, it goes right ahead and swallows it whole. That's why it gets fatter day by day.
Munchlax is one of the Pokémon that appears out of a Poké Ball. When summoned, it wanders aimlessly around the stage, eating any items it finds, excluding Trophies, CDs, Stickers, Poké Balls and Smash Balls. If there aren't any items around for it to gobble up, Munchlax is effectively useless, much like Magikarp.
Blizzard & Ice Punch
Abomasnow (Japanese: ユキノオー Yukinooh) is a dual-type Grass/Ice Pokémon. It evolves from Snover starting at level 40. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Abomasnow using the Abomasite. It blankets wide areas in snow by whipping up blizzards. It is also known as "The Ice Monster." It lives a quiet life on mountains that are perpetually covered in snow. It hides itself by whipping up blizzards.
When released from its Poké Ball it remains stationary and uses Blizzard, circling itself with a damaging icy vortex which draws opponents in. After two usages of Blizzard it dashes forward and attacks with an Ice Punch, doing 15% damage and freezing the target. It performs this routine two times before disappearing.
Weavile (Japanese: マニューラ Manyula) is a dual-type Dark/Ice Pokémon. It evolves from Sneasel when leveled up at night while holding a Razor Claw. They travel in groups of four or five, leaving signs for one another on trees and rocks. They bring down their prey with coordinated attacks. They dwell in cold places. This Pokémon's main food source in Alola is Vulpix and Sandshrew, which they carefully divide among their group.
Weavile appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Brawl. When summoned, Weavile will use False Swipe and slash at other foes on the stage furiously. On the ground, the attack only does 1% damage with no knockback, but any opponent that gets hit will be stunned. Weavile moves back and forth for a long duration of time, trapping opponents for that period of time. When used on an airborne opponent, the attack has high knockback, making a Star KO very likely. In the Pokémon games, the move False Swipe would reduce the opponent's HP to up to 1 HP, never below, making it strange that this move can KO. Like Fox Illusion, if Weavile darts off an edge, it will KO itself.
Palkia (Japanese: パルキア Palkia) is a dual-type Water/Dragon Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Along with Dialga and Giratina, it is a member of the creation trio of Sinnoh, representing space. It is said to live in a gap in the spatial dimension parallel to ours. It appears in mythology. It has the ability to distort space. It is described as a deity in Sinnoh-region mythology.
When summoned, Palkia uses its signature move Spacial Rend, temporarily turning the camera upside down. It disappears after a short time, returning the camera to normal. Opponents who touch Palkia take 10% damage and low knockback.
Heatran (Japanese: ヒードラン Heatran) is a dual-type Fire/Steel Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It dwells in volcanic caves. It digs in with its cross-shaped feet to crawl on ceilings and walls. Boiling blood, like magma, circulates through its body. It makes its dwelling place in volcanic caves.
Heatran will appear and will start to stomp on the ground. Two pillars of magma rise from the ground, one on each side of him. It is similar to Entei's Fire Pillar only that isn't as powerful, but has a lot more range and can stagger opponents on the pillar.
Darkrai (Japanese: ダークライ Darkrai) is a Dark-type Mythical Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is a member of the Lunar duo with Cresselia. It chases people and Pokémon from its territory by causing them to experience deep, nightmarish slumbers. It can lull people to sleep and make them dream. It is active during nights of the new moon.
When summoned, it uses its signature move Dark Void, throwing a dark orb that pulls opponents in, puts them to sleep and inflicts continuous damage. This orb lasts for a decent amount of time, able to put those trapped to sleep twice if they are at low percentages. The move does 35% total if the opponent is trapped from the beginning of Darkrai's attack. Unlike most sleep-inducing attacks, Dark Void is effective against airborne foes, causing them to float helplessly in the middle of the vortex. Once the attack ends, they will fall to the ground and go to sleep.
Shaymin (Japanese: シェイミ Shaymin) is a Grass-type Mythical Pokémon. While it is not known to evolve into or from another Pokémon, it has a second Forme activated by using a Gracidea flower in the daytime. Its original Forme, Land Forme, will then become the Grass/Flying-type Sky Forme. It can dissolve toxins in the air to instantly transform ruined land into a lush field of flowers.
