'''Pokémon Change''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンチェンジ''' ''Pokémon Change'') is {{ga|Red|Pokémon Trainer}}'s down special move in [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]. Unlike other special moves being exclusive to one [[Pokémon]] (for instance, {{m|Rock Smash}} only being available to {{p|Charizard}}), Pokémon Change is universal between {{p|Squirtle}}, {{p|Ivysaur}}, and {{p|Charizard}} (besides [[Final Smash#Triple Finish|Triple Finish]]).

The '''Pokémon Trainer''' (Japanese: '''ポケモントレーナー''' ''Pokémon Trainer'') is a playable character in ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]''.
+
==Effect==
  +
When sent out, each Pokémon is initially granted 120 points of energy called stamina. One point of stamina is deducted for every second a Pokémon is in battle, thus allowing for a maximum of approximately 2 minutes of normal performance. Executing an attack also drains 1 stamina point. When a Pokémon's stamina reaches 30% (or 36 points), their stance will change to signal oncoming fatigue. Once stamina reaches 0, the Pokémon's attacks drop in effectiveness. The stamina counter will reset when the Pokémon is knocked out.
   
==Core mechanics==
+
Pokémon Change mimics [[Pokémon anime|anime]]/[[Pokémon manga|manga]]-style battling by [[Recall|switching out]] to the next available Pokémon to let the previously used one rest. This is reflected in that while not in battle, each Pokémon will regenerate 2 points of stamina per second until restored to 120.
Unlike the other characters, Pokémon Trainer doesn't actually fight his opponents himself. Instead, he sends out his [[party|Pokémon team]] of {{p|Squirtle}}, {{p|Ivysaur}}, and {{p|Charizard}} to fight on his behalf, each with its own set of moves, strengths, and weaknesses. The Trainer is able to switch between the three Pokémon using the Down-Special move, [[Pokémon Change]], which each Pokémon has access to. If a Pokémon fights for too long it will gradually weaken. The Pokémon Trainer's [[Final Smash]], Triple Finish, is also shared amongst the three Pokémon.
 
   
During a fight, the Pokémon Trainer can be seen in the background, using hand signals and commands to direct his Pokémon, and running across the screen (on large stages) so he can be near his Pokémon at all times. When his Pokémon are defeated, he remains in the background, but pulls his hat over his eyes and assumes a defeated posture.
+
While switching out, the user is temporarily immune to any on-screen attacks. Damage percentage is still carried over. Effects such as increased or decreased size held by the previous Pokémon will ''not'' be carried over during Pokémon Change ([[Final Smash]] wielding being one exception). Pokémon Change cannot be activated in midair.

Pokémon Change is disabled in [[The Subspace Emissary]] until the player obtains Ivysaur and Charizard, respectively.

Squirtle is a fast, lightweight fighter and uses various attacks using its shell and jets of water. It can use {{m|Waterfall}} to dash upward on a wave of water to recover from falls, {{m|Withdraw}}, to retreats to its shell and propel itself forward, shooting water from its shell. It also uses {{m|Water Gun}} to push enemies backward with a stream of chargeable water. Because of its lightweight build, it excels in aerial combat but is easy to knock off the stage and KO. It uses {{m|Hydro Pump}} in the Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash, {{DL|Final Smash|Triple Finish}}.
 
   
In the {{sbw|Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary|Subspace Emissary}}, Squirtle is the first Pokémon to appear alongside the Pokémon Trainer. It is sent out to assist a distraught {{wb|Lucas}}.

In many ways, Ivysaur is the balance between the heavyweight, hard-hitting {{p|Charizard}} and the lightweight, agile {{p|Squirtle}}. It uses mostly [[physical]] {{type|Grass}} attacks, such as {{m|Bullet Seed}}, a rapid upward hitting move, and {{m|Vine Whip}}, a recovery move where vines are shot out to latch onto edges of a stage and pull Ivysaur up. It also uses the projectile attack {{m|Razor Leaf}}. It uses {{m|SolarBeam}} in the Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash, {{DL|Final Smash|Triple Finish}}.
 
 
In the {{sbw|Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary|Subspace Emissary}}, Ivysaur is found by the Pokémon Trainer, Squirtle, and Lucas after an encounter with {{wb|Ness}}'s captor, {{smw|Wario}}. This allows the Pokémon Trainer to use [[Pokémon Change]] in the story mode.

Charizard is the Pokémon Trainer's powerhouse, boasting heavy-hitting moves and excellent recovery, but lacking in speed. It uses a variety of mostly physical attacks, such as {{m|Rock Smash}}, a powerful attack towards enemies directly in front, and {{m|Fly}}, a recovery move that sends Charizard skywards and allows it to glide. It can also use Flamethrower to attack from a short distance, although its power decreases over time. It uses {{m|Fire Blast}} in the Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash, {{DL|Final Smash|Triple Finish}}.
 
 
In the {{sbw|Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary|Subspace Emissary}}, Charizard is found shortly after Ivysaur, completing the Trainer's team.

The Pokémon Trainer is first encountered by {{wb|Lucas}} in the Ruined Zoo. For most of the game, the two are paired together. Pokémon Trainer's mission is to capture Charizard and Ivysaur while Lucas's is to save {{wb|Ness}}. On their way to {{sbw|the Ruins}}, the two are ambushed by {{smw|Wario}}, who is eventually defeated by the two. Later in {{sbw|The Ruined Hall}}, they are attacked by {{sbw|Galleom}}. Once defeated, it sets off a time bomb. Lucas saves the Pokémon Trainer, and they are then both saved by {{wk|Meta Knight}} who carries them away from the explosion, which sucks up Wario's trophy into Subspace. From then on the two join Meta Knight, {{sbw|Marth}}, and {{sbw|Ike}} on their quest to take down the {{sbw|Subspace Army}}.

The order in which Pokémon Change will rotate (Squirtle→Ivysaur→Charizard)
SmashWiki
SmashWiki has more about this subject:

Pokémon Change (Japanese: ポケモンチェンジ Pokémon Change) is Pokémon Trainer's down special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unlike other special moves being exclusive to one Pokémon (for instance, Rock Smash only being available to Charizard), Pokémon Change is universal between Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard (besides Triple Finish).

Effect

When sent out, each Pokémon is initially granted 120 points of energy called stamina. One point of stamina is deducted for every second a Pokémon is in battle, thus allowing for a maximum of approximately 2 minutes of normal performance. Executing an attack also drains 1 stamina point. When a Pokémon's stamina reaches 30% (or 36 points), their stance will change to signal oncoming fatigue. Once stamina reaches 0, the Pokémon's attacks drop in effectiveness. The stamina counter will reset when the Pokémon is knocked out.

Pokémon Change mimics anime/manga-style battling by switching out to the next available Pokémon to let the previously used one rest. This is reflected in that while not in battle, each Pokémon will regenerate 2 points of stamina per second until restored to 120.

While switching out, the user is temporarily immune to any on-screen attacks. Damage percentage is still carried over. Effects such as increased or decreased size held by the previous Pokémon will not be carried over during Pokémon Change (Final Smash wielding being one exception). Pokémon Change cannot be activated in midair.

Pokémon Change is disabled in The Subspace Emissary until the player obtains Ivysaur and Charizard, respectively.
