The fighting/steel type Pokémon, Lucario, will be joining the Nintendo crowd in the ring as the 22nd character added to he roster for Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.

Surprisingly enough, he is only the second Pokémonto join the fray with just the yellow rat Pikachu joining him.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that Nintendo has at least two more Pokémon up its sleeve to toss into the fray: Mewtwo and the immortal Jigglypuff. Fire will rain from the heavens and singe the Earth if Jigglypuff is denied to Nintendo fans for this release.

Good choice, bad choice? Let us know. I wasn’t expecting him until I got my hands on Pokémon X and Y and saw he had a starring role in the game. It became a little obvious at that point.
