Pokemon fans will have spotted the unmistakable rainbow antlers of the legendary Xerneas in this Smash Bros Wii U screenshot. Yes, one of the Pokemon X and Y mascots will make an appearance in Smash Bros but will it be a playable character like Pikachu?
Sakurai isn't saying. Posting on Miiverse, the Smash Bros producer wrote: "We have absolutely nothing to announce today regarding Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Really!"
Of course, many fans were hoping that Sakurai would reveal a new Pokemon for Smash Bros Wii U earlier this week when Pokemon X and Y were launched around the world and some Miiverse posters were disappointed when Monday's Smash Bros 3DS screenshot showed Mario and Luigi
So what is this all about? Is Xerneas a playable character or will it appear randomly from a Poke Ball? Or could the Pokemon Trainer be making a return?
