Xerneas Increases The Launch Power Of All Fighters In Super Smash Bros.


Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has shared details on two of the legendary Pokémon that have a possibility of popping out when you use a Poké Ball—Xerneas and Victini.


“Victini and Xerneas are both support Pokémon,” Sakurai said on Miiverse. “Victini’s Victory Star boosts the attack of whoever throws the Poké Ball, and also prevents flinching.”


Meanwhile, “Xerneas’s Geomancy increases the launch power of all fighters, but exceptionally raises it for whoever had the Poké Ball.”
