Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been making waves since Nintendo's massive announcement at E3 2018 last month. From every character ever in a Smash Bros. game being playable to the big Ridley reveal, there has been no shortage of Smash Bros. Ultimate content over the past few weeks.

Now that we're past the surface news and information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch title, we can start getting a closer look at the intricacies that lie in wait for more serious players. Interesting tech has already made its way to our front page, most recently we saw the utility of The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Link's remote bombs.

This time, we're taking a deeper look at the 3-in-1 contender, Pokemon Trainer. Earlier this week, TSM|ZeRo uploaded footage of a set between him and top Super Smash Bros. Melee player FOX|Mew2King in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that took place at E3 2018.

The set here lasts two games and features ZeRo using Pokemon Trainer and Mew2King battling as Marth. Other than the fact that we get to see two of the best players from Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Melee, respectively, slug it out, this video also provides commentary from ZeRo about the match and shares specifics on Pokemon Trainer in Ultimate.

One thing ZeRo explains is the need to switch between Pokemon with Pokemon Trainer. While some people might think they're going to be solely a Squirtle main, ZeRo says that this game rewards switching between Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard, and feels like the game encourages it.

Each unique Pokemon has particular strengths that you'll want to utilize throughout a match. ZeRo notes that Charizard has great KO options and the best recovery of the three, while a character like Squirte has strong mobility and works well when you're not sure how to approach a match. Ivysaur ends up being ZeRo's favorite, however, and he notes that this Pokemon has the best neutral game of the three.
