A new Spirit Board event has arrived in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, this time challenging players to “catch ’em all” with the latest in-game activity that adds some of our favorite pocket monsters from Pokemon Sword and Shield. 

With Pokemon Sword and Shield recently released to rave reviews, a few adorable creatures are making their way into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For those looking to score all of the Spirits available, here’s what you need to know! 

Pokemon Sword and Shield Invades Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The two faces for Sword and Sheild are the first Spirits up with both Zacian and Zamazenta crashing the party. The second Spirit joining the festivities are the starters: Grookey, Sobble, and Scorbunny. The three Pokemon are combined to make one Primary Spirit, which makes this haul incredibly desirable. 

Corviknight is a two-star Primary Spirit solid for Air Defense, while Morpeko bringing his spark as a One-Star Spirit meant to increase movement speed. All of these combine to add seven characters, four Spirits, with the following grouping: 

  • Zacian and Zamazenta 
  • Grookey, Sobble, and Scorbunny
  • Corviknight and Morpeko

The event is still ongoing and will end on November 27th, so if you want to catch them all – do it, do it now. 

As for the game itself, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
