  • Pikachu is a playable veteran character in Super Smash Flash 2. It was one of the characters in added in v0.8 of the SSF2 Demo, alongside other characters such as Donkey Kong and Yoshi. Its sprites are custom-made and based on its appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee. During the reveal trailer for Luigi at Super Smash Con 2015, Pikachu was shown with recolored sprites. Pikachu is ranked 10th of A tier, at the bottom of A tier. This is a 5-spot drop from his previous placement, being 5th of A+ tier. Pikachu posses quick attacks, decent combo ability, great recovery, high priority attacks and amazing finishers in its smash attacks, neutral aerial and down aerial. Pikachu is a strong edge guarder, being considered one of the top three edge guarders in the current demo. Pikachu's grab and throw game is one of the best in the game. However, Pikachu is light, which makes it easy to KO horizontally. It has poor reach in many of its attacks, forcing it to get up close to start combos (although this is remedied by its Thunder Jolt approaches). Although this gives Pikachu problems approaching characters with disjointed hitboxes, ex.: Lloyd and Sora. This also goes to its finishers as well, where Pikachu needs to be close to the opponent in order to secure a KO. Another problem Pikachu has is its poor combo game, where it mainly has to rely on strings that don't send opponents into enough hitstun, or its grab and throw game to rack up damage. Pikachu's hurtbox is bigger than its sprite size seems to indicate, which allows it to be hit by attacks that normally should not even touch it. Although Pikachu is considered one of the better characters in the current demo, it has a fairly small player base and sees low representation in tournaments. Though Pikachu does take some high spots in online tournaments.
