ALIEN INTRUDER ALERT! XURKITREE INVADES!
Xurkitree is a new Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It's an electric type Ultra Beast with a ridiculous base SpA of 173. After using it in battles, it quickly became my favorite Gen 7 Pokémon and my most wanted newcomer. (Besides the obvious fan favorite suggestions.)
Xurkitree would be a middleweight, large sized character with its standard attacks having long range like Simon and Corrin. It moves fast on the ground and packs a lot of power in its melee and special attacks.
Neutral B: Thunder Cannon
Xurkitree manually charges an electrical beam with four different stages, and launches it at the opponent.
Stage 1: Small electrical cannonball that explodes for minor damage.
Stage 2: Slightly bigger cannonball that explodes and stuns opponents.
Stage 3: Medium sized electrical projectile that does medium to high damage and stuns opponents.
Stage 4: Giant electrical laser that flies across the map at a quick speed and deals high damage.
Side B: Dazzling Gleam
Xurkitree lunges forward and flashes a mid-ranged blinding light in the opponent's eyes, launching them and leaving them dizzy and open for attack.
(Same range as Palutena's Autoreticle)
Up B: Galvanic Rocket
Xurkitree surrounds itself with an electric force field and propels itself a great distance into any direction chosen.
Down B: Beast Boost
Xurkitree plants itself into the ground for 3 seconds and boosts the power of its special attacks. The effect lasts for 10 seconds.
Final Smash: Viva Las Ultra Space
Xurkitree rips open an ultra wormhole and sucks nearby players in. It will then summon the rest of the ultra beasts and perform a team attack in a cutscene final smash.
Forward Smash: Power Whip
Xurkitree lashes its long arm at the opponent
Up Smash: Spikes
It attacks by planting itself and hitting opponents with its spiky head.
Down Smash: Shock Pillars
Xurkitree summons two pillars of electricity on both of its sides and hits nearby opponents
Grab: Xurkitree uses its long tail and grabs enemies from a distance
(Similar to Lucas' pet snake)
Up Throw: Xurkitree throws the enemy above it and strikes with a thunderbolt
Down Throw: Xurkitree brutally whacks the enemy into the ground three times before letting go. 50% chance to bury after 3rd hit.
Forward Throw: Xurkitree swings its tail in a circle, and drags the enemy across the ground before throwing and firing a mini laser.
Back Throw: Xurkitree spins its body and throws the enemy back, with a mini laser as a goodbye present.
Taunts (these will be legendary and meme worthy for years to come within the Smash community)
Up: Guard Duty (Plants itself and wiggles its arms while emitting a loud shriek for intimidation)
Side: The Wiggle (Does an iconic dance seen in Pokémon Refresh when feeding it)
Down: I Have Awoken (Plants itself and gets woken up by getting struck by lightning. Lightning can spike opponents on the ledge.)
1: Xurkitree flies out of an Ultra Wormhole head first, and strikes a pose during landing
2: Xurkitree is overflowing with electricity while the camera rotates, and releases it all from its hands in a pose. (Think of Moira's Transformation highlight intro from Overwatch)
The rest of its moves (dodges, aerials, etc) are up to your imagination.
If this character gets in, I will be really happy, and I hope you all decide to support it. I will add you to the list very soon. Also feel free to share your own moveset ideas! I will also add them in another list.
