Pokéballs, a common staple of the Smash Bros franchise, makes a return in Super Smash Bros Brawl. Just like in the Pokémon games, when you release the Pokémon, it comes out and starts using an attack. These attacks do a variety of different damages and effects so you have to be prepared. What Pokémon is released? Well that's random, and some are rarer than others, so keep your eye out for them.
 #182 Bellossom
Name: Bellossom

Type: Grass
First Appearance: Pokémon Gold/Silver (1999)

Details:
Bellossom makes a welcome return from Melee. Using the same attack as in Melee, Sleep Powder, Bellossom dances around for a short time releasing a decent powder around it. This powder will put any player who comes in contact with it to sleep temporarily. It's likely they will wake up during it, to which if they don't quickly get out, they will wind up falling back asleep. As the summoner is unaffected by the powder, this makes the opponents ripe for a quick attack.

Pokéball - Bellossom
 #439 Bonsly
Name: Bonsly

Type: Rock
First Appearance: Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (2005)

Details:
Bonsly makes his first Smash Bros. appearance in Brawl. Bonsly however is ever docile and once released from the Pokéball, will simply walk around. This is where the summoner and the other players come in. As Bonsly is walking around, any character can pick him up. Once picked up, albeit slowing people down due to his weight, the opponents can throw Bonsly a short distance. If Bonsly comes into contact with any enemy, it will cause decent damage and knockback. So be sure to be the one to get to it

 #251 Celebi
Name: Celebi

Type: Psychic/Grass
First Appearance: Pokémon Gold/Silver (1999)

Very handy for your collection, although it has been known to drop these trophies down holes

Pokéball - Celebi
 #152 Chikorita
Name: Chikorita

Type: Grass
First Appearance: Pokémon Gold/Silver (1999)

Details:

Once released from the Pokéball, Chikorita will take up position and start shooting out sharp leaves directly in front of it. These leaves damage and trap anyone on them if they come from above. They also have decent knockback and if a player is caught in one on the ground, they will likely be subjected to the full arsenal. However, they are reflectable if your character has means to reflect so don't be afraid to use it

Pokéball - Chikorita

Type: Ground
First Appearance: Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire (2002)

Details:
Groudon makes it's first appearance in Brawl and with it, it makes a giant impression. Once released, it stays still, but due to its size it takes up a massive amount of most stages.

Despite the fact he is stationary, Groudon does move his head, arms and tails a bit so you have to be prepared for that

Once sent out, Kyogre will pick an opponent to go for and move over to them. Once it finds it, it will should out water at them. This water is not harmful but does push the opponent. However, Kyogre slowly moves downwards once it starts shooting and as such can easily pin you down and push you off the edge.
