Bonsly in SSBB – The official Super Smash Bros. Brawl website revealed today that Bonsly is a Poke Ball item Pokemon. When released, it just walks around, but whoever picks it up can throw it at other players to do massive damage, potentially knocking them completely off the stage if they have enough damage already (apparently it hits so hard because it is heavy, but it only weighs 33 pounds in the games). However, it can be reflected, as shown in the last screenshot. Poor Bonsly – it’s everyone’s abused toy. Click the thumbnails below for larger images.
So far, Pokemon known to be available in Poke Balls are Goldeen, Chikorita, Deoxys, Groudon, Munchlax, Piplup, Kyogre, Torchic, Snorlax, Gardevoir, Meowth, Entei, Latios, Latias, Electrode, Suicune, Lugia, Staryu, Bellossom, Ho-Oh, Wobbuffet, Togepi, Snorlax, Celebi, Mew, and Bonsly.
New Japanese Blister Packs – Japan will be getting two new blister packages to celebrate the upcoming New Year, each with two new promo cards! The first package will come with Torterra Lv.X (which was already released in English) and a new Bronzong promo, two DP1: Diamond and Pearl booster packs, and one DP2: Mystery of the Lakes booster pack. The second blister package contains Empoleon Lv.X and a new Mothim promo, two DP1: Diamond and Pearl booster packs, and one DP3: Shining Darkness pack. Where is Infernape Lv.X? It was already given out at the Japanese Winter Challenge tournaments, and will continue to be given out as more are held. We will post more information on these two packages, such as the translations for Bronzong and Mothim, once larger images are released.
And yes, that is a Fire resistance on Bronzong. It can probably be attributed to its Heatproof ability in the games.
