Pichu is a veteran fighter in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was confirmed to return on June 12, 2018 during E3 2018. It remains relatively unchanged from Melee; some of its attacks still cause itself damage.
Changes from Melee
Pichu's appearance has been updated to match its appearance in the more recent games in the Pokémon franchise.
Its down tilt now has an electric effect on the opponents it hits.
