Special Move Breakdowns


Pikachu performing the move Thunder Jolt.

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.

Pikachu performing the move Skull Bash.

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 Quick Attack.

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.

Pikachu performing the move Thunder.

Thunder

Calls down a lightning strike that deals more damage to opponents if the bolt hits Pikachu.

If the bolt hits Pikachu, the explosion deals massive knock back damage and grants 10 frames of intangibility. Pulls an opponent down to Pikachu if hit by the top of the bolt. Quite vulnerable to counters.
