From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

The hitbox of Pikachu's f-smash.

Pikachu fires a small jolt of electricity from its cheeks, dealing 14-18% damage. The move has a very large disjointed hitbox, and it also hits above Pikachu very slightly. While it is a powerful KO move that can easily be done from a distance, it is very slow compared to Pikachu's other moves. It can be used for edgeguarding to intercept characters with linear and/or predictable recoveries, such as Fox and Captain Falcon. The move is also virtually safe on block against certain characters.
