Compared to hype cycles of Smash Bros. games’ past, Ultimate has had few major news drops in its daily blog updates. Today, however, there’s something of a small revelation, even if many fans could have seen it coming from a mile away.

In the text part of today’s blog, unfortunately there are no applicable pictures, it’s confirmed that Greninja’s Final Smash will have the Pokémon turn into its Ash-Greninja form. This unique design, first seen in the Pokémon X & Y anime series and later canonized within the games thanks to Sun & Moon’s Special Demo, has the ninja frog get some subtle changes to match its original trainer, Ash Ketchum.

We’ll just have to wait and see how the new design is implemented.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
