As you may well have noticed, Pokémon developer Game Freak has recently launched its very own YouTube channel, giving fans little insights into the behind-the-scenes life at the studio. In a recent video, members of the team decided to have a quick game of Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64, no doubt hoping to settle who's the very best - like no one ever was - once and for all.

Among the contestants are Game Freak's executive director and generally world-famous Pokémon overlord Junichi Masuda, and battle system programmer Masao Taya. In a move that will shock generations to come, Masuda opted to play with Pikachu; others chose Yoshi, Donkey Kong, and Samus.

Rather than spoil the result, we'll let you watch events unfold for yourself below. As with all of Game Freak's videos, the whole thing is in Japanese, but you'll still be able to see what's going on from a gameplay point of view.

Do we have any Pikachu-maining readers in the house? Do you think you'd be able to take on Game Freak at the game? Share your thoughts with us below.
