Hey I got SSBM for Christmas and I want to know how to unlock Pichu and Mewtwo! You may be thinking "Just google it, kid." but the reason I'm asking here is, I want to hear it from a trusted source!

The reason I want Mewtwo is, it's my favorite Pokemon! And I want Pichu so I could record the "1 Stock, Hardest Difficulty, as Pichu." Why not any other character you ask? Pichu is lowest on the Tier List, meaning I record the HARDEST THING IN MELEE!


For Pichu, complete event 37. For Mewtwo, play VS for over 20 hours. There are also a certain number of matches you can play that is an alternate condition for unlocking them.

    Partially incorrect on Mewtwo. Unlocking Mewtwo requires 20 hours of cumulative human player time in VS matches. Additional players means less total time is necessary - with a full 4 human players in VS it only takes 5 hours. Feb 2 '16 at 18:03

For mewtwo You can simply start a 99 minute VS match and go eat something, then come back 99 minutes later.

Or if you have 2 controllers you can just start a stock match without time limit and go to sleep.

For pichu event 37 has to be completed. Use a heavy hard hitting character like ganondorf.


For Pichu, You can either Play 200 VS. Battles or Clear Event #37 Legendary Pokémon.

For Mewtwo, You can either Play 700 VS. Battles or Play VS. for a combined total of 20 hours. If you use 2 controllers 1p vs. 2p in a1 stock match, you have to wait 10 hours, for 3 controllers its around 6.5 hours. For 4 controllers it's 5 hours.
