Special Move Breakdowns

Thunder Jolt

Sends a ball of electricity bouncing along the stage.

An excellent projectile that deals decent damage, moves quickly, and can be used repeatedly. Sticks to the map or platforms, and can be used to stop an opponents approach, setup combos, gimp recoveries, and more.

Skull Bash

Charges up a flying headbutt.

Decent recovery option, as it has a hit box protecting it, good horizontal distance, and can sweet spot the ledge. Great for punishing shield breaks, but has considerable end lag.

Pikachu performing the move Skull Bash.

Quick Attack

Attacks quickly in any direction. Can change direction mid-move to move a second time.

Covers good distance and can be unpredictable, but renders Pikachu helpless after. Can be used to approach, but becomes predictable and punishable.
