Pikachu Guide Introduction

Speed is the name of the game when it comes to Pikachu, and comboing with him has never been easier. All his moves have a ton of high duration hits and the lag time on his air attacks is nearly non-existent. His Quick Attack also has some sweet mind-game potential, and allows him to perform off-stage edge-guarding with ease.

Pikachu Combos

When it comes to combos, Pikachu can combo exceedingly well, especially if he's up against a larger character with big hitboxes. Here are some sample combos:
  • Up Air + Neutral Air + Up Tilt + Back Air
  • Up Throw + Neutral Air
  • Up Air + Forward Air + Forward Air
  • Up Tilt + Up Air
  • Up Tilt + Neutral Air

Pikachu Tips

  • Zone with Pikachu's Thunder Jolt, but be careful of parries when you go in for additional hits.
  • Thunder pushes Pikachu up a bit, allowing him to stall out off-ledge.
  • Skull Bash can be used prior to Quick Attack for recovery, but on most stages won't be necessary and sets you up to be punished.

This fierce fighter uses electric moves like Thunder Jolt and Thunder. Pikachu Libre is one of the alternate costumes and you can tell she's female by the shape of her tail.
