Since 1996, Pikachu has been stealing hearts worldwide and across generations. Given he's the furry face of the Pokémon franchise, it’s not surprising that Nintendo has included the electric mouse in each Super Smash Bros. game.
It's safe to say Pikachu's the best character in the original Super Smash Bros., but he was booted to mid-tier status beginning with Super Smash Bros. Melee. Subsequently, he is often underestimated. With enough practice and determination, however, Pika players like Jeffrey “Axe” Williamson and Eric “ESAM” Lew have come to realize his true potential.
In their latest video, False Swipe Gaming provides a thorough examination of Pikachu's play styles throughout the Super Smash Bros. series. Perhaps it will convince you to have at least a pocket Pika!
