Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Guide > Basics > Pokemon

Pokemon come out of Pokeballs when thrown and usually fight alongside whoever released them. Regular Pokeballs can contain any Pokemon, but the much rarer Master Balls can only contain rare and legendary Pokemon, except when they contain a Goldeen. Pokemon that can appear from Master Balls are marked with an asterisk. Some Pokemon will only appear after you've unlocked them by completing challenges.
