Pokeball Guide
1.0 General Information
A maximum of 3 pokeballs can be on screen at any one time regardless of options.
The appearance of pokeballs can be turned on and off in item options for brawl.
To use a pokeball pick it up with A and then throw it by using A again. 
Pokeballs can be throw as projectiles at oponents as well and have have a small 
knock back and damage on impact. 

1.1 Background
Pokeballs first made their appearance in red and blue versions of pokemon for
the game boy in 1998. After weakening a pokemon trainers would "throw" a 
pokeball at it in order to "capture" a pokemon. The pokemon could then be
released in battle by "throwing" the pokeball which was housing them.
Super Smash Bros for the N64, Super Smash Bros: Melee for the GCN, and now
Super Smash Bros: Brawl for the Wii all featured the inclusion of the pokeball
as one of the items in the game that players could use.

Pokemon: Bellossom
Rarity: Common
Game Versions: SSB:M, SSB:B

Trophy Description: A Flower Pokémon. After spells of cloudy weather, 
Bellossom will gather to call out the sun by performing a dance. When exposed 
long enough to the sun, the leaves on its body will spin around. A Bellossom's 
Speed is also known to increase with sun exposure. Its main specialty is 
Grass-type attacks. Also, Bellossom will close its flowers when sleeping. 

Sticker: [Grass] Attack + 8 (Pokemon Trainer Only)

Physical Description: Bellossom has yellow and green leaves fanned out like a
skirt around its body. On its head are two red flowers and it has stubby pale
green arms and a cheery expression on its face.

Effect: Bellossom puts characters in the surrounding area to sleep that come in 
contact with the cloud it puts out. If you fall asleep you wont be able to move
until this pokemon goes away or until you are attacked. The pokeball thrower is
immune to this effect.

Strategies: Stay away from the powder! Use ranged attacks on those in the cloud
if you did not throw this pokeball to do damage while avoiding getting put to 
sleep. If you threw the pokeball charge up a strong smash attack on the now
helpless opponents.
Pokemon: Bonsly
Rarity: ???
Game Versions: SSB:B

Trophy Description: "A Bonsai Pokemon. It looks like a plant, but its history 
reveals it is actually a Rock type. Its best move among all its specialty moves

a decent amount of damage.

are best to dodge it. It is heavy and does not fly far so its best used for
short range thrown attacks.

Trophy Description: "Celebi has the power to travel through time, and thus 
wanders from one age to the next. It is considered a deity by the forests:

Mew, Celebi is shrouded in mystery. Its special techniques blend grass and 
psychic powers."

Sticker: [Grass] Attack +14 (Pokemon Trainer only)

around. Its head is much larger than the body with big blue eyes and antennae.

will appear to not explode only to go off a few seconds later. True duds can be
picked up and thrown.

it has a wild temperament, and its attack with its horn is severe. Among the

loveable face, it can swallow something the size of itself in one gulp. Its 
stomach is filled with gastric juices strong enough to dissolve whatever it

remaining strength of the opponent Pokemon. It evolves into Swalot."

Sticker: Electric Attack + 16 (Pikachu, Pokemon Trainer, Lucario, Jigglypuff)

tan leaf coming out of his head. His eyes are squinted shut and he has very

causes damage but the water itself does no damage. The water does however have
a knock back and kyogre tends to chase after one character until it dies from
being pushed off the screen.

"guardian of the seas," it has the impressive ability to control the wind.

impact your score. 

Strategies: Beat on the guy(s) you are NOT in control of and avoid being KO'd.

GuitaristCal writes "a great thing I have found is to jump off the stage right 
before it switches back and to have used the other players double-jumps and 
recovery moves so when switched they would typically fall helplessly which 
can be considered an easy kill."
Pokemon: Meowth
Rarity: ???

and very fond of things that sparkle--the gold medallion on its head could be

primarily yellow in color with red/orange molten flames. It has a long orange
