It’s been a few months since the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, so it’s time to discuss your preferences when battling with Pokémon fighters. There are eight to choose from—ten if you count Pokémon Trainer’s Squirtle, Ivysaur and Charizard separately—and they cover a lot of different fighting styles. In total there’s Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Pichu, Mewtwo, Pokémon Trainer, Lucario, Greninja and the newly added Incineroar!
Personally, I have an affinity for Greninja’s fast-paced and slippery gameplay, but it always feels good to call down lightning on your opponent with Thunder as Pikachu.
There’s more than gameplay to consider though; each fighter has unique color variations to choose from as well. Which Pokémon has the best costumes in your opinion? Sometimes you have to feel fabulous as you decimate your opponents. You’d have to have a pretty convincing argument to make me think hibiscus Jigglypuff is not the cutest out there.
But there’s more than just Pokémon fighters in Ultimate. There are 55 Poké Ball items to use during battles which makes it even harder to pick a favorite. You can see all of them in the YouTube video above.
Let us know in the comment who your main is, who brought the best looks and what Poké Ball spawns are your favorite!
