Volt Tackle is the signature move of Pikachu's evolutionary line in the Pokémon series since Generation III, and appears as Pikachu's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Pikachu turns into a large ball of electricity, able to fly around the stage freely and damage opponents Pikachu flies into. The player can press the attack button to discharge electricity, dealing greater damage and knockback. After discharging, the player has to wait a second for the move to recharge. Once Volt Tackle is about to end, Pikachu will begin to slow down and movement will be slightly restricted. Additionally, Pikachu cannot fly past the blast lines in this form.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, a ball of light appears alongside Pikachu that follows the direction the player is holding, serving as a guide, though the this ball deals no damage to opponents.

WII Super Smash Bros. Brawl Pikachu, transformed into a ball of light that can slam into foes. It can also fly to chase down those who try to jump out of range. Sparks get stronger when you press the attack button. However, its increased inertia makes midair movement tough. If you get carried away flying, the effect will end, and you'll destroy yourself. Be careful it doesn't happen to you.
