Overview[edit]

The hitbox of Pikachu's dash attack.

Pikachu does a running headbutt and falls on the ground, doing 9%-12% damage and average knockback. While its power is high enough to make it a decent move for getting opponents offstage, and it is a decent punishing option because of this, its very high ending lag and predictability makes it very easy for opponents to punish (especially against a shielding opponent, who can immediately shield grab Pikachu). This makes its usefulness rather questionable. Commonly considered Pikachu's second worst move behind its forward tilt.
