Hydreigon is a Pokémon introduced in Generation V said to be able to attack anything that moves, Hydreigon is one of the most dangerous Pokemon. It holds an honor in being a "Pseudo-Legendary" Pokemon due to its destructive abilities.

Character DescriptionEdit

A Hydra-Like Pokemon that's heads consume anything that moves. It travels the sky with its 6 wings seeking a meal or being destructive. It responds to movement by attacking since the heads on their arms do not have brains, it sees everything it moves as a threat. Most people don't have Hydreigons due to their savage and hard to train nature although two trainers in your journey across Unova have one, Ghetsis and Champion Iris.

In Super Smash Bros IVEdit

Hydreigon is a playable unlockable character from the Pokemon series. Hydreigon is a strong and fast character but has low defenses. It can use many dragon-type moves at his disposal along with fire, ice, electric and dark powers being a Dragon but it's also exceptional in melee-combat. It's Neutral-Special is Electro Ball, it shooting a homing electric ball. It's Up-Special is Fly, it first jumps to the air cloaked in darkness and can glide after that. It's Side-Special is Rapid Spin, Hydreigon simply spins around with arms outstretched, the attack also makes items disappear like when using the actual move in the games. It's Down-Special is Dark Pulse, Hydreigon generates shockwaves of dark energy forward and backwards, unknowingly, Hydreigom needs to recharge after this.
