SmashWiki has more about this subject:

Saffron City (Japanese: ヤマブキシティ Yamabuki City) is a playable stage in the original Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The battle takes place on the roof of Silph Co. and a few smaller surrounding buildings, along with two small moving platforms. Some Pokémon occasionally emerge from the elevator on the right side of the building during battle. This is the home stage of Pikachu and Jigglypuff in the game.

In the background, along with the Saffron City skyline, signs reading "Gotta catch 'em all!" and "Route 5" can be seen. A mountain range in the background may be the same one that contains Mt. Moon, Victory Road, Cerulean Cave, and Mt. Silver. There is also a minor building with some blurry text that seems to start with "F", so it could possibly be the Fighting Dojo.

In the Japanese version, the logo on the Silph Co. building is spelled "Silf".

Pokémon appearances

Moltres as it appears on the stage

Certain Pokémon will emerge from the elevator on the Silph Co. building and attack briefly, similar to Pokémon summoned from Poké Balls. Occasionally, Pidgey, Fearow, Butterfree, and Moltres will appear in the background.

The following Pokémon appear on the Silph Co. building. Some of them can be knocked out, while others are invincible.

Pokémon Effect
Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur deals 20% on contact initially and 8% thereafter. Venusaur may also attack with Razor Leaf, with each leaf dealing 3% damage and stunning the fighter if it hits.
Charmander Charmander Charmander can be defeated by stronger attacks, including Pikachu's Thunder, sending it flying off the stage. Charmander deals 5% contact damage each time and may also shoot flames at anyone in its range, dealing 2% per hit.
Electrode Electrode Electrode does not deal contact damage. After a short time, Electrode explodes and deals 30% damage, likely KOing those with higher damage.
Chansey Chansey Chansey is easier to beat than Charmander. Unlike other Pokémon, Chansey heals the first character who touches it by 5%. Chansey may also send out an egg, which may contain an item or a bomb. Eggs will not appear if items are turned off or the stage is being played in Training Mode.
Porygon Porygon Porygon deals 18% contact damage before disappearing.


  • In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, all the Pokémon that appear from the elevator have had their English voice actors changed from their ones in the original Super Smash Bros.. This reflects the change in the English voice actors as the previous voice samples were the actors from 4Kids Entertainment.
  • The appearance of Porygon from the elevator is one of the few instances where Porygon's voice can be heard in any form of international media. However, this voice sample uses the Japanese voice rather than the English one that appears in the Who's That Pokémon? segment in A Way Off Day Off.
