has been confirmed to be included in the upcoming Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo Wii U. Masahiro Sakurai (桜井政博), Director of the game, posted a screenshot on Miiverse of Thunder
and how it works.
Pic of the day. Pikachu's Thunder now starts off with a thundercloud that deals a Meteor Smash! From left to right, you can see this combo starting with Pikachu throwing the opponent upward, Meteor Smashing with the lightning strike, and then directly attacking. Foes can dodge, of course, so the attack won't hit consistently, but when it does, it sure feels good!
