Incineroar is a Fire/Dark-type Pokémon that debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon. It is the final evolution of Litten, evolving from Torracat beginning at level 34. In the English version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Incineroar is voiced by H.D. Quinn, who has done voiceovers for the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime. In the Japanese version, Incineroar is voiced by Unshō Ishizuka, who passed away about four months before the release of Ultimate.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

SmashWiki article: Incineroar (SSBU)

Incineroar appears as an unlockable playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Its debut trailer was paired with Ken Masters' trailer, where the two briefly fight on the Boxing Ring stage. Prior to openly revealing itself, it also briefly wore a white hoodie when attacking Ken. Incineroar is unique in that it poses after performing a special move, though these poses can be canceled at any point and thus do not affect the fight.

Incineroar is a super heavyweight fighter with highly powerful attacks and very sluggish mobility to boot. In fact, Incineroar is notorious for having the slowest walking and dashing speeds in the game. In a similar vein to veterans Sonic the Hedgehog and Charizard and fellow newcomer Inkling, Incineroar takes minor damage from swimming; this is due to both Incineroar being unable to swim in its home games and for being weak against Water-type Pokémon in said games. Fittingly, the overwhelming majority of Incineroar's attacks consist of professional wrestling moves, extending to even its special moves.

Incineroar's neutral special move is Darkest Lariat, which involves it performing a series of discus lariats that can block projectiles. Its side special is Alolan Whip, in which it lunges at an opponent in order to Irish whip them into wrestling ring ropes and, depending on when the special button is pressed, subsequently perform a lariat, a back body drop, or collide with the opponent. Incineroar's up special is Cross Chop, which has it leap vertically into the air and descend diagonally to perform a cross chop that causes a small explosion upon hitting a surface. Lastly, its down special is Revenge, a type of counterattack that makes Incineroar receive minor damage in exchange for retaliating with a small burst of flame and making its next attack much stronger.
