Stay on target ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… Who Are They?Pokemon Trainer represents the player character from the original Pokemon Red and Blue. While he/she stands in the background, players actually control the three original starter creatures in one of their three different evolutionary phases: beginner water-type Squirtle, intermediate grass-type Ivysaur, and advanced fire-type Charizard. Pikachu may be the Pokemon mascot, but this character is much closer to the first Pokemon gameplay experience.Smash HistoryAfter trying out transformation mechanics with Zelda/Sheik in Melee, Pokemon Trainer expanded the concept even further as a newcomer in Brawl. Fighters could switch between all three Pokemon on the fly, essentially controlling three characters in one with a shared Final Smash. However, Pokemon would become weaker if not switched out. And in Smash 3DS technical limitations meant only Charizard was carried over in both it and the Wii U version.What Looks New in Ultimate?Pokemon Trainer returns in Ultimate complete with all three Pokemon. The stamina system has been removed so you can play any single Pokemon as long as you like. Switching between them is also much faster, so you can even set up combos across Pokemon. The individual Pokemon themselves have received some mild tweaks like Charizard’s Flare Blitz Attack, Squirtle’s water-based smash attacks, and Ivysaur’s Bullet Seed finishing hit. But the buffs to Pokemon Trainer as a whole are what’s most exciting.Our Hopes?Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in general has a lot of potential for wild and crazy combos that will just be entertaining to look at. But Pokemon Trainer especially could be a spectacle. Seamlessly switching between Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard to finish off an opponent would create levels of 90s kid fighting game hype to surpass even Dragon Ball FighterZ.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.
