New Smash Bros. screenshot showcases Palkia

palkia-smash

The new screenshot of the day for Super Smash Bros. development shows off Palkia emerging from a Pokeball. Masahiro Sakurai also had this to say on the Miiverse page for the game:

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!

What do you want to see next in the development screenshots?

  • X3Charlie

    Why not a legendary from more recent games.

  • Gameonfool

    Mmm isn’t the console version to resemble the platform more, same as 3DS version.
    Pokemon on wii u then please oh yeah we did get rumble ah never mind.

    • rp17

      Dude that’s only for stages… this is a pokeball (an item). And its console games vs handheld games not Wii U games and 3DS games.

  • Skelterz

    I Don’t even know what the fuck that beast is i stopped playing after gold and silver a long time ago tell a lie i think i had crystal at one point but yeah you can’t beat the original 150 badboys.

    • TheDetonator

    • Deadpool U

      I hate genwunners.

      • Skelterz

        To be honest i don’t play it anymore mate i grew out of it, not saying im to mature for it just that it didn’t appeal to me as much i think i’d like to play X or Y and maybe a full HD pokemon stadium 3 that links with X and Y so i can battle people with pokemon i collected in that game but until that i’ll probably leave the franchise alone and how can you hate moltres man that was cool!

      • ScrewAttack

        I hate haters ;)

        I’m just quite content with the first games, not really interested in keeping going and learning all the new stuff, but hey that’s my choice! Hope that doesn’t piss in the collective cereal of modern pokefans, like it should bother them at all.

        Give me Pokemon yellow/red/blue U and I’ll be perfectly happy to fade into the background of Pokemon’s gaming history.

        • LightupmyLife

          I get amused on how upset they get when you don’t enjoy the modern games. They haven’t changed much in the past decade.

    • Guest

      You just went full genwunner, never go full genwunner.

      • Skelterz

        to be honest i’ve never heard that before so im not insulted or bothered in the slightest lol i stopped playing after gen 2 and prefer the first lot because it was a massive part of my childhood what with the anime and the cards and what not what’s wrong with that or is it that people with different opinions on wii u daily get hounded because there views are different from the mass lol pathetic.

        • LightupmyLife

          I see Pokemon no different than CoD. Same stuff every year.

          • Skelterz

            In a sense i agree but i do think there’s slightly more innovation in pokemon they always come out with new creatures and stuff new designs which is comparable to previous installments i comend them for that and to be fair what would i know i haven’t played anything since gen 2 but i do feel the next step is a console version HD 1080p 60fps they have been avoiding it for some time i see it as the only way to push the series any further because its somewhat stale in my opinion like i said earlier pokemon stadium 3 HD1080p every pokemon connectivity to the new x and y games and i’ll give it a shot again but the chances of nintendo doing something like that is so slim, There’s more chance of kingdom hearts 3 coming to wii u.

          • LightupmyLife

            Perhaps, but I don’t see much of a change in Pokemon. That’s just me. I’d like to see a Pokemon Stadium 3, but Nintendo barely brings Pokemon to consoles.

          • Skelterz

            Yeah it cause if they did a console version of pokemon they would lose there biggest system seller on 3DS no is gunna want to play a full game on 3DS after seeing it in HD 1080p on a big screen.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol its called pocket monsters for a reason

          • LightupmyLife

            Those pocket monsters do get bored and wanna be on a bigger screen from time to time. They have rights you know. How can you be so insensitive?

          • Superstick98

            I would love to see a Pokemon game just as good as the handhelds but on a big screen in HD. When will it happen?! :( (P.S: PM Rumble U doesn’t count XD)

          • matthew garcia

            Lol I mean your right it would be a new breath of fresh air but doesnt seem like anything is on the horizon or near future

          • Skelterz

            Go “Lightly” on him he’s one of them….

          • Mendoza Manuel

            …..and after over a decade…that finally makes sense to me…totally lit up my life right now

          • Skelterz

            Chill out Matthew-san.

          • gtosheex

            I could be wrong and am too lazy to look it up, but i always thought they were called pocket monsters because they go into a little pokeball and trainers can put it in their pocket…

    • Shy Guy

      Pokemon encourages kids to kidnap animals from the wild, confine them, then train them to participate in fights for their amusement and profit, you guys should feel bad for playing something like that and I hope one day someone kidnaps you from your homes, shoves you in a “pokeball” and only let’s you out to fight other people in illegal bloodsport where your reward is you get to live and be shoved back into your pokeball while your “handler” gets paid.

      Hehe yea I was being a bit sarcastic, but kinda not, when ya really think about it the concept behind Pokemon is pretty dang disturbing.

      • Arthur Jarret

        That reminds me of that PETA game, Pokémon Black & Blue

      • Skelterz

        Lol they should do a game merger called Pokemon Vs RSPCA.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but you’re wrong

      • Skelterz

        Well i might be but like when i played gold and silver back in the day i still prefered the originals i did like the new ones form that game and i though pokemon stadium 2 was class as well, maybe i should grab the new one for my 2ds and give it a whirl apprently its solid from what my mate said.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          I’m just messing with you, first of all. I meant no offense ^w^

          Secondly, I highly recommend it. I think you’ll be surprised and delighted at how far the series has come since you’ve last played. Sounds like you even have a friend to battle!

          • Skelterz

            Lol yeah well when that pokemon stadium comes out and if there’s some sort of classic conncetivity that nintendo are good at i might just do it.

      • Arthur Jarret

        Yup, everybody is entitled to their own opinion – I can’t force them to be right.

        • Skelterz

          Mate c’mon its all about a Majoras mask remake who give a fuck about palkia in smash bros jeez…

      • LightupmyLife

        Those fightin’ words.

    • Shy Guy

      I had Pokemon Red AND Blue for my original Game Boy, can I be a “genwunner”!?!

      • Skelterz

        Haha apperently its a bad thing to be i wasn’t aware there was a slogan attached to people who prefered different gens lol does that mean i’m a N64 genrunner cause it was my favourite system or what im confused?!

        • Shy Guy

          Didn’t you realize theirs a slogan and label for everything these days?

          I mostly played on my Game Boy because I owned one and it was a clever way to keep the kids I babysat when I was a teenager quiet because they were fanatical about the game too so instead of chasing them around I’d just bring my trusty Game Boy and whatever Pokemon game was opposite the one they had and we’d sit and play.

          • Skelterz

            yeah man well i don’t mind being called a gen wunner or whatever its the only one i fully remember i stopped playing by the end of gold and silver lol Shoot me hahha.

          • ScrewAttack

            We get this genwunner crap a lot in Transformers too, because apparently being a big fan of the first show in a series is something to be looked down on for.

            Just a bunch of newgens trying to show how hard they are. Enjoy the series, generation or whatever you like best and shut the fuck up about how other people enjoy theirs.

          • Skelterz

            Exactly i don’t even play anymore lol for good reason its not as relevent as it used to be to me and its just not original enough my opinion lol , genwunner wtf seriously anyone who comes out with that needs to go outside for a bit or get a girlfriend or something haha.

          • LightupmyLife

            Even my girlfriend is a gamer and never heard of a genwunner. Very true too, those people need to get out more and away from the internet a bit. Lol.

    • Sdudyoy

      Really though, the newer Pokemon games are fun, the new Pokemon may not be those classic ones, but you should at least give one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises a chance, I understand you like the original Pokemon, I love them, but the newer Pokemon aren’t that bad, I will respect your opinion, but I think if you played it for the games and not the Pokemon you could enjoy the series.

      • Shy Guy

        I can’t even pronounce half the names of these modern pokemon.

        • Arthur Jarret

          Neither can all but two pokemon…

          • Shy Guy

            I remember the cartoons where at the end they would teach kids the names with a “poke-rap”… now that’s some clever marketing. Create something with weird hard to pronounce names, then release a cartoon that not only sells the product as well as any 80s cartoon sold mass produced molded plastic, but also teaches them those hard to pronounce names thus creating an incentive to watch the show to the end (higher ratings) and get the customer more invested in the products….. god I hate marketing sometimes, it’s so deep and manipulative. o.O

        • Sdudyoy

          I honestly don’t see how it matters if you can pronounce the names of Pokemon, but you should be able to find pronunciation’s all over the internet.

          • Shy Guy

            Because I imagine it makes a person look foolish when they rant about how good a pocket monster is who’s name they can barely pronounce. Also keep in mind the original Pokemon cartoon aired back in the late 90s when most people’s internet still took four minutes to download a midi at a few kilobytes a second.

          • Sdudyoy

            I was saying you could use the internet now days, I know how slow the internet was in the 90s, anyway my point is I love Pokemon and there are alot of Pokemon that I don’t know the name to, I really don’t care about looking foolish.

      • Skelterz

        I don’t doubt that for a second mate just am not massively interested in the franchise anymore i think the only way they could reel me back in is with a full hd pokemon stadium 3 like then i could buy X & Y and see the pokemon i caught connect up to the wii u somehow and battle people 1080p 60fps online yeah that would reel me back but otherwise im not sold anymore lol i’d much prefer a shiny chrono trigger remake anyway.

    • Ace J

      dude gen I is extremely flawed.

      • Skelterz

        Dude i didn’t really notice a great deal man i was a kid when it came out i enjoyed what went on when it first came out then dropped it as i got a bit older i’m really not to fond of it anymore but like ive said to the million people who have posted a comment to me about gen 1 the only way i’ll pick the game up again is if we see pokemon stadium 3 with a link up to X & Y so i can buy both games go through the X or Y game and put my pokemon into pokemon stadium 3 and battle people 1080 p 60fps not that it matters that much but why not and until that day im out! dragons den style.

        • Ace J

          , i totally agree with you that they should make a pokemon stadium 3

          • Skelterz

            it must be done.

    • greengecko007

      I agree. Original 150. Screw Mew #151. Nobody likes that pink Mewtwo fake. That’s why the developers put him under that truck in that part of Vermillion City that you can’t ever go back to.

      • Skelterz

        haha well said.

    • WiiUltra

      Nah man, I agree with you. 600+ pokemon is alot to remeber. I think the first 150 were perfect. But i also played Y and enjoyed it.

      • Skelterz

        cool man i might check it out someday.

  • GermGerm

    A nintendo direct

  • Dark-Link73

    I’m actually upset with NAMCO-Bandai for not supporting the Wii U. It’s rather sad that Nintendo had to pay them to make a game on the Wii U. Let’s face it, if Nintendo hadn’t hired NAMCO to make Smash Bros., Namco probably wouldn’t be making anything for Wii U right now.

  • Deadpool U

    Palkia that’s a bit unexpected I wonder if Dialga and Girantina will be in the game Girantina was my personal favorite the distortion world was awesome in Platinum!

    • Kirbyomega

      Dialga was shown in a screenshot a while ago

      • Hamzilla22

        Nah, they never showed Diagla. I think your mixing him with Xerneas who was shown a while ago

        • Kirbyomega

          Oh yeah sorry I got my brawl memories and my ssb4 memories mixed up

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      Man the only one who knows how to hype things up is Sakurai man they need to give him the job for the marketing team of Nintendo. Sakurai is awesome.

      • Dallas Gooch

        This so much lol
        I love the picture of the day thing. I keeps us SSB fans sane while we wait.

    • Skelterz

      What about Goemon Would you like to see him in the Game…i know its not nintendo’s IP but they got megaman and sonic i’d like to see Goemon they mystical ninja i can just picture his move set and his final smash could be the massive robot!!!

      • Dallas Gooch

        I would love to see Goemon, Goemon’s great adventure was my favorite N64 game. I think he’s trademarked by Konami though.

        • Skelterz

          yeah well megaman is capcoms ip but they managed to squeeze him out of them.

          • Dallas Gooch

            Yes but capcom is actually helping out with the game if I’m not mistaken.

          • Skelterz

            i’m not to sure about that mate i think bandai are?

    • Levi Johansen

      They’ve said there will be just as many characters in the new Super Smash game as there was in Brawl.
      – For every new character, we must also lose one.

      Marth and Ike are very similar, might as well drop Ike – since we’ve got Marth confirmed.
      Same with the Star Fox characters – I won’t mind if we only have Fox.

      -

      Hoping for Rayman, Bomberman, Dixie and Cranky as new characters.

      • ChubbiestLamb6

        I think you slightly mistook what was said. There isn’t a hard limit set on the roster size, he just said that they weren’t looking to expand the roster very much any more because it gets exponentially harder to balance all of the characters, especially since they are making an effort to reduce the number of clone characters. Im sure it will grow slightly, just not double like from Smash to Melee, or an extra 50% like from Melee to Brawl. I’d say around 40 seems likely.

        Also, I think you’re spot on with the StarFox characters, but I think we are more likely to see their movesets diversified before they get canned. Marth and Ike, however, are only superficially similar. Their movement speed, rate of attack, damage, and everything else is completely different. Yeah, they both have blue hair and use a sword, but that’s about where the similarities stop. Honestly, Luigi and Mario are far more similar than Marth and Ike.

        • Levi Johansen

          I do agree about Marth and Ike, also about Mario and Luigi.

          I still think we should have only Marth and both Mario and Luigi. Luigi is too iconic to be removed, but they should change him abit, many found him overpowered anyway.

          Also, if they’re gonna have both Toon Link and Regular Link, they need to change the upward-thrust-leap, or whatever it’s called – B+UP, it’s the same for both and also some other moves I think.

          • ChubbiestLamb6

            Yeah, honestly I was a little surprised when the screenshots of Toon Link were revealed after he was confirmed, because all of his moves look very similar to what they were in Brawl. I can only guess this means that they chose to tweak Adult Link instead? Otherwise I’m a little skeptical of how well they are diversifying the clone characters…

  • matthew garcia

    Maaaaan why do they always talk about the same games they we know are coming out sometime this year. Is there anything else besides the obvious

    • Guest

      100% agreed

    • Deadpool U

      So it was obvious to you that Palkia was in the game?

      • matthew garcia

        First of all I havnt been into pokemon since I was 15 im 27 now. I play deeper rpgs then that simplistic formula that is pokemon. So can u please tell me another game besides the same 5 or 6 games everyone has been talkin about for a long time now

        • Pikachief

          better than the 3 or so games they’ve been talking about coming out for PS4 lol

          5 or 6 games coming out this year to talk about is a lot of games to talk about especially before E3.

          • matthew garcia

            Yeah thats just ps4 1st party titles but there getting alot of 3rd party titles as well to hold them over. I have ps4 and wii u so inbetween the months of wii u game droughts I will be playing ps4

        • Skelterz

          I’d like a remake of Body harvest.

          • LightupmyLife

            That was a good game.

          • Skelterz

            It Was one of those sort of hidden gems, I also would like a goemon remake the one that was on 64 or like vigilante 8 imagine what they could do with that game now lol it would be a right laugh.

          • matthew garcia

            Wish nintendo could get perfect dark back

          • Skelterz

            I wish they could get banjo kazooie back they fucking ran that franchise into the ground on the 360.

          • matthew garcia

            Yeah thats for sure. Microsoft must not have been to supportive of rare

      • Skelterz

        Nah maybe to him that’s just not good enough news mate to me it wasn’t i don’t care about palkia i wanna know more about X or Mario kart hell even how the new zelda games coming along man.

        • matthew garcia

          Now thats what im talkin about maaaaaan

          • Skelterz

            Yah init!!

        • LightupmyLife

          Exactly. Zelda we barely hear about or even other games in the near future. Mentioning the games we hear about all the time isn’t exactly big news or news at all.

          • Skelterz

            Hey remember what we were talking about the other day man about the “mass opinion” scroll up and look at the comments lol apprently i’m a Genwunner…. in regard to pokemon because i said prefered the original 150 to any others and i stopped playing after gold and silver cause i grew out of it, I don’t really play it or like it anymore and no palkia isn’t news what so ever not to me, i want some X news or some Zelda news man even some new VC titles would be better that palkia?

          • LightupmyLife

            Lol Yeah. Certain people on here always have have to be immature and make snide remarks because you have a different opinion. I pity those types of gamers.

          • Skelterz

            To be fair it didn’t bother me at all lol, I’m more concerned for there state of mind haha where they feel the need to disagree like i said the other day its all for effect they probably like the originals just as much as the next guy but a chance to get an upvote is far to enticing to let go,

          • LightupmyLife

            Oh I know. Doesn’t bother me either. I just find it funny how annoyed or upset people on here get over an opinion that doesn’t relate to their own.

          • Rinslowe

            Daniel Gonzalez?

          • LightupmyLife

            Pardon?

          • Rinslowe

            Sorry just wondering if you were in fact another poster. It’s pretty much a dead ringer for something he would post….
            My bad. :)

          • LightupmyLife

            To keep it to the shortest answer, no I’m not. We’re all bound to run into posters that express themselves in a similar fashion. Not to come off as a douchebag, but I’m here to talk video games. I’d appreciate if the topic pertains to that. No ill will here. :)

          • Rinslowe

            I totally agree with the last part which is the same reason I am here also. And yes I also agree that the term “douchebag” although more extreme than what I would have described – is accurate enough, seeing as though “To keep it to the shortest answer, no I’m not.” would have been more than sufficient in expressing the very same sentiment… :)

          • Skelterz

            screw attack made sense check his comment he’s one of us dare i say it, He has a mind if his own….awaiting downvotes hahahah

          • LightupmyLife

            You know, I never heard of a Genwunner. Lol. Sounds like a lame insult. Boy the things kids make up these days.

          • Skelterz

            It just goes to show that education in schools has hit an all time low even with all this new technology kids are getting thicker oh well.

          • LightupmyLife

            Too true.

        • The Clockwork Being

          I want to know aobut the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem crossover. We only got a teaser!!

      • LightupmyLife

        He was talking about the game itself. Not the character reveals. Is that obvious to you? Lol.

      • DragonSilths

        Didn’t need to be obvious. Not like Palkia is a big deal. If it was Xernea’s or Yvetal then it would be better. Unless they are meant to be Stage Hazards in this game.

        • Nookling

          Xerneas has already been confirmed

    • Skelterz

      I feel the same way man fuck palkia WE WANT GOEMON NOT POKEMON!!!!

  • Sdudyoy

    I hope Dialga comes also, he most likely will but I always preferred him over Palkia.

    • Shy Guy

      Who?

      • Sdudyoy

        This guy.

        • Shy Guy

          I liked Squirtle… and Snorlax, and that psychic duck who’s name escapes me..

          • Deadpool U

            I really hope your being sarcastic

          • Shy Guy

            No I haven’t played Pokemon since the mid 90s, the way people rant on and on about weirdly named characters and argue statistics seems weird… suffice to say I don’t play card games either, both kinda give me that blank stare and pressure in the middle of my forehead that listening to people talk about sports does.

            Maybe if Nintendo releases an interesting looking Pokemon for the Wii U I’ll pick it up. And yes I know the psychic duck is named Psyduck, he is one of my favorite looking characters, who’s “stats” I know nothing about because that **** gives me a headache.

          • Sdudyoy

            While, I respect your opinion, I can say the newer Pokemon games are fun games, I don’t like some of the newer Pokemon (There are Pokemon in Gen 1 and 2 that I didn’t like either), but that doesn’t stop the games from being fun, you don’t have to learn the stats to enjoy the game’s either, Pokemon can be as complex and as simple as you want, It’s completely up to you what you play, I’m not trying to force my opinion on you, but I can say these games are good enough to try again, (At least in my opinion).

          • Asturias_Knytt

            Tell me you didn’t just compare Pokemon to sports…

          • Shy Guy

            No… even I wouldn’t go that far, what I said is when I listen to people rant about “pokestats” (hell I bet that is a real word) and how this strangely named Pokemon can beat that strangely named Pokemon because stat X is two points higher than stat Y and this special move is OP and that special move requires that stat to be at Z otherwise it’s not OP…. that to me sounds like people talking sports.

          • Michael Ocampo

            i kinda feel your pain…

          • Deadpool U

            I was just hoping you were sarcastic about not knowing Psyducks name.

          • SP-937-215

            I thought Psyduck was the one with the sticks. Or maybe that was Dukstix or Fetchduck or something…

          • Mario

            Psyduck?

        • Shy Guy

          Is he a robot? :P

          • Sdudyoy

            Nah, but He is a Steel Dragon, so close I guess.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        The other legendary that goes along with palkia

    • Deadpool U

      I liked Girantina more than either of them though my all time favorite legendary is Lugia.

      • Sdudyoy

        My favorite legendary is Rayquaza, I know It’s generic but He’s pretty cool.

        • Blue Hernandez

          My favorite Legendary is Arkanine.
