InsertControllerHere takes the Pichu taser controller mod into online matches in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Quite the shocking development...

Being that Pichu is the lightest character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and also has a variety of moves that cause self harm, you'd have to be quite the masochist to want to play this electric mouse — even though the baby Pokémon is generally relegated as being a high tier.

Apparently, InsertControllerHere figured that playing Pichu wasn't punishment enough. He recently developed a controller that tazes the player whenever they use one of Pichu's special moves.

As promised, he's decided to take on online players as Pichu while using this controller. Indeed, he'll receive a light shock every time he opts to use one of Pichu's special moves.

While the player's GSP (Global Smash Power) isn't exactly the highest, you really have to give him credit for playing under these conditions. Being tazed every time a special is used certainly adds a certain degree of pressure that can be distracting from the actual gameplay.

Although Pichu has a number of attacks outside of its special move pool that can inflict self harm, InsertControllerHere explains why it'd be very difficult to design a controller mod that can accommodate all the scenarios for tazing.

In his first match, the Pichu user finds himself going up against a Donkey Kong player. You'll note that he wisely decides to recover to the stage using air dodges rather than Pichu's up special whenever possible.

As if InsertControllerHere wasn't satisfied enough with the experiment, he decided to play another match because he specifically wanted to win while using Pichu's Thunder (down special). Needless to say, he succeeded in his goal.

Be advised that there is some NSFW language that is... understandably present in the video.
