Super Smash Bros. for Wii U may be have finished up its run of DLC (though the rumored Switch port could potentially get even more), but new content continues to flow in thanks to the tireless work of the game’s modding community. With the major success and memorable characters of the newest Pokémon titles, it’s no surprise that these modders have turned their attention towards adding fighters (as skins, at least) from the Sun and Moon story, with some awesome results.
Much like the
Lillie & Cosmog skin we shared a few months ago, though, these are just skins, not distinct fighters with their own movesets. Popplio is a skin for Villager; Incineroar for Fox; Wicke for Peach; and Gladion for Cloud. While the movesets don’t really match their characters’ actual abilities, it’s great to see these new characters joining the fight to be the best, like no Nintendo character ever was, and I think it’d be pretty sweet if at least one of them (Gladion, please? With Type: Null or Silvally at his side?) was to become a DLC character for Super Smash Bros. for Switch.
If you’d like to try these skins out for yourself, you can download the
Popplio, Wicke, and Gladion mods from Game Banana; unfortunately, the Incineroar skin is currently unavailable, with the creator having deleted it and hoping to improve and reupload it at a later date. There are also a few, more minor mods that the video above shows off, which you can find in the video’s description if you’re interested.
What do you think of these skins? Who else from
Pokémon Sun and Moon would you like to see get modded into the game? Let us know in the comments!
