More Details From PokkenArena.com Pikachu Libre at Pokken Arena

Pikachu Libre is an Electric type Pokémon playable in Pokkén Tournament. She is an alternate form of Pikachu that first appeared in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

In Pokkén Tournament[]

Pikachu Libre is classified as a speed-type Pokémon, which makes her one of the fastest playable Pokémon and grants her significant combo abilities. To counteract this, she has very weak attacks. She, along with Weavile, is a fairly complex character with a lot of move options but has significant weaknesses as well.

Causing a phase change with a Pokémon Attack activates Power Up for Pikachu Libre.

Special Characteristics[]

Powering Up[]

A special ability of Pikachu Libre is that she can easily power up her moves for a short time. She can enhance her moves by causing Phase Shifts using a Pokémon move. Furthermore, using an enhanced Pokémon move to cause a Phase Shift temporarily increases her attack stat.

This unique ability allows her to build up momentum quickly in dealing high amounts of damage to the opponent.

Synergy Burst[]

Character-specific Burst Mode Effects[]

Pikachu Libre dashes forward, hitting the opponent, followed by an upper-cut with her tail. The cutscene proceeds with the foe stunned on a wrestling ring. Pikachu Libre cheers with the audience, then jumps high to smash the opponent with an electricity-boosted slam from above.
