The Super Smash Bros. series has long featured numerous characters from the Pokémon series, but it seems that at least one of the Legendary Pokémon from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y may find their way into Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and 3DS. On Oct. 18, Masahiro Sakurai teased new information for Super Smash Bros. 4 on Nintendo’s Miiverse service via a new game screenshot.
While sharing a new ‘Pic of the Day’ for Super Smash Bros. 4 Wii U, Sakurai posted a screen of Pikachu with Pokémon X Legendary Pokémon Xerneas pictured in the background.
This new picture caught the eye of many and Sakurai posted the following comment along with the screen:
Pic of the day. We have absolutely nothing to announce today regarding Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Really!
Though it seems unlikely that Xerneas will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4, it wouldn’t be farfetched to expect Xerneas and Yveltal to appear has item-based Pokémon for players to use during a battle.
Whatever their purpose may be, it seems we will have to wait a little longer to find out as Sakurai is not ready to discuss the role the Legendary Pokémon of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will have in Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and 3DS.
