Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Super Smash Bros. series, has revealed the first Legendary Pokémon for use in Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. According to a report by OfficialNintendoMagazine from Feb. 5, Legendary Pokémon Palkia, from Pokémon Diamond for Nintendo DS, will be one of the Pokémon available to players who use the Poké Ball item during battle.

Aside from confirming Palkia for the Super Smash Bros. 4, Sakurai also disclosed the type of attack Palkia will make use of when unleashed during battle. When chosen during a fight, Palkia will use his signature move, Spacial Rend, to attack enemies and inflict massive damage to those unfortunate enough to get hit. Find Sakurai’s full explanation of Palkia below:

Palkia appeared in the Spear Pillar stage of the previous game…but now it's coming out of a Poké Ball?! Here's Palkia's signature move, Spacial Rend!

Though Pokémon X Legendary Pokémon Xerneas has been teased to make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. 4 in some form, Sakurai has not detailed how Xerneas will be used in the game. Expect more Legendary Pokémon to be announced for the title over the next several months leading up to release.

Super Smash Bros. 4 will release in 2014 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
