Remember how you could get a Captain Olimar Trophy back in Melee for having Pikmin save data on your memory card? It was one of the last I got on my perfect file, thanks to borrowing the game from a neighbor. The spirit of that cool bit of cross promotion is alive and well with the follow up to Trophies in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, according to a Tweet from Nintendo Australia.

As it says, for having gone with Let’s Go! Pikachu you’ll get the Partner Pikachu Spirit while those who chose Eevee will get Partner Eevee instead. These borrow the art from the games’ box, and open the door for similar gifts in the future. And if you haven’t picked up the latest Pokémon adventure? Well, that’s what friends are for, or you can play through and unlock them via their own Spirit challenge in game.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
