Pikachu Spirit 1

If you're looking forward to giving your fighters a boost in battle with hundreds of spirits when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is finally released on the Switch, Nintendo Australia's Twitter account has shared a fun fact revealing how you can acquire two of them sooner rather than later.

If you have save data for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! on your Nintendo Switch, you'll be able to immediately unlock the partner Pikachu spirit and partner Eevee spirit. Fortunately, if you only own one of these games, or didn't pick up either of the latest entries, you'll still be able to unlock the spirits in-game by completing challenges.

As can be seen, both spirits will enhance your fighter's abilities such as attack and movement.

For the uninformed, spirits are characters from all sorts of different Nintendo series, as well as characters created by many other publishers and developers. There are two different types of spirits - primary and support - and hundreds of them to collect. You can find out more about spirits in our special guide.
