Quick Attack is a Normal-type move from the Pokémon series. The move also appears as Pikachu's up special move in the Super Smash Bros. series. Pikachu quickly moves into the air in a burst of speed the direction that the player is holding on the control stick. If the player changes the direction they are holding mid-attack, then Pikachu receives a second burst of speed in that direction. In Super Smash Bros. this move does not inflict any damage, but it does in every later installment.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U introduces custom special moves, giving this move two variants: Meteor Quick Attack, which moves and acts slower and does not travel as far but has a meteor effect during the beginning and when changing directions; and Quick Feet, which only gives Pikachu one burst of movement that travels farther.
