    --Pikachu



    Pikachu is by and large the most recognizable character from the Pokemon franchise, which began its existence on the Game Boy on February 27, 1996. The purpose of the game was pretty straight forward. First, the player must catch and train as many different species of Pokemon they could from around the Kanto region. The second objective was to defeat the leaders of 8 gyms, each of which were specialized in a certain Pokemon type. Finally, after acquiring all 8 gym badges, you could enter the Pokemon League and battle the Elite Four. From time to time, you occasionally run into your town rival who challenges you to a battle.



    The game extended beyond its single player mode, and introduced a trading system where players could link up their Game Boys and make offers on each other's Pokemon collection. In fact, trading was the only way players could catch all 151 original Pokemon species.



    The success of the original Pokemon games spawned of creation of hit television show, 10 feature films, a card game, and 3 later generations of Pokemon games. Each subsequent generation introduced a new set of creatures, bringing the current total to 493 different species of Pokemon.



    Although Pikachu made his debut on the Game Boy, he didn't become a worldwide hit until the television series first aired in Japan on April 1, 1997. The show follows the journey of Ash Ketchum as he trains to become a Pokemon master. His first Pokemon is a Pikachu, given to him after the all other starter Pokemon were given away to other trainers. Although Ash and Pikachu's relationship starts of poorly, they soon develop a strong friendship that continues through the entirety of the series.



    Pikachus are mouse Pokemon that specialize in electric attacks. They evolve from Pichus and later evolve into Raichus with the help of a Thunder Stone. Though Pichu wasn't introduced into the franchise until the second generation, it still makes an appearance as playable character in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

    Volt Tackle



    Pikachu gets his Final Smash from Pokemon Emerald. Volt Tackle is a powerful electric attack that causes damage to the Pikachu due to recoil. It is obtained by equipping any member from the Pikachu family with a Light Ball and breeding it with another Pikachu-related Pokemon. If everything goes as planned, a Pichu will be born with Volt Tackle in its moveset.



    Like its Game Boy counterpart, Volt Tackle in Brawl is a very powerful attack that turns Pikachu into a giant ball of electricity. The player gets the freedom to control the direction of Pikachu's attack. However, similar to Volt Tackle on the Game Boy, such a powerful attack comes with a price. Instead of being hit by recoil, if Pikachu is not positioned carefully when the attack ends, he runs the risk of falling to his doom.

    First stage in our History Lesson! Enjoy!

    --Battleship Halberd



    Perhaps the most enigmatic stage to be announced on the Smash Bros. Dojo, Meta Knight's Battleship Halberd has been revealed to play a major role in Brawl's Subspace Emissary. Though the circumstances surrounding its existence have not been unveiled, we can be confident that the ship itself will be quite large.



    While Meta Knight made his video game debut in Kirby's Adventure for the NES, his infamous airship didn't make its first appearance until Kirby Super Star, which was released for the SNES on March 21, 1996. The Halberd served as the primary setting for the subgame Revenge of Meta-Knight (note the hyphen), though some portions of the game take place in regions throughout Dream Land.



    Meta Knight returns to Dream Land aboard the Halberd, determined to take over and put an end to its lazy lifestyle. Kirby must stop him by defeating his henchmen, destroying parts of the ship, and ultimately battling Meta Knight himself in hopes of sinking the Halberd into the depths of Orange Ocean. Although it plays similarly to the other games within Kirby Super Star, Revenge of Meta-Knight ups the difficulty level by adding a timer for each stage as well as text that runs along the bottom of the screen during gameplay. Additionally, players must unlock this game by completing other games within the series.



    The Halberd's appearance in Brawl has been changed since its original design in Kirby Super Star. Although the main elements remain intact (giant wings, Meta Knight mask at the front of the ship), the overall shape of the vessel has been updated to fit the gameplay in Brawl. When compared side by side, it is clear that the front of the ship is much larger today than it was 1996. Additionally, there is now more room to battle on the top of the ship. Small alterations like these give the Halberd a more modernized look.



    There is one major element that has remained completely unchanged in its transformation into the next generation. The Twin Cannon, now named the Double-Barreled Battery, makes its return to the Wii. There are three components that make up the Twin Cannon. First, the barrel on top shoots giant bombs in different directions. Second, the barrel on the bottom shoots a giant laser that stretches across the screen...



    ...And finally, the cannon's arm drops smaller bombs that rain in from above.



    Although it has been confirmed that the lower barrel still shoots its massive laser, it is still uncertain as to whether the other two components will retain their former purpose. More importantly, we have yet to discover the Halberd's true purpose in the Subspace Emissary? Has Meta Knight joined the Ancient Minister's army of Primids? Or has the Halberd been highjacked with Meta Knight left behind?
