Super Smash Bros 4 Characters: Pikachu's New Thunder Attack Showcased in Pic of the Day (PHOTO)

In today's Super Smash Bros 4 Pic of the Day, Pikachu's lightning strike move is showcased against a temporarily disabled Bowser.

"Pic of the day. Pikachu's Thunder now starts off with a thundercloud that deals a Meteor Smash! From left to right, you can see this combo starting with Pikachu throwing the opponent upward, Meteor Smashing with the lightning strike, and then directly attacking. Foes can dodge, of course, so the attack won't hit consistently, but when it does, it sure feels good!" wrote Masahiro Sakurai in the Nintendo Miiverse. See the image here.

In the last Pic of the Day, one of Link's newest weapons was featured against Samus.

"Pic of the day. The Gust Bellows can blow opponents away with its powerful wind blasts. When someone drops it, though, the gusts run wild! Out of the new items, more than a few will be from The Legend of Zelda series. We'll take the most interesting and straightforward ones and reformulate them to match the Smash Bros. world," wrote game developer Masahiro Sakurai in the Nintendo Miiverse. See the image here.
