G/S Artwork

A Pokémon said to be able to keep food rolled up on its tail all day long. It nests in sharp cliffs and delivers food to its chicks. It also has a habit of sharing food with people lost in mountains. With this treatment, an explorer was said to be able to scale Mount Everest with just one Delibird. It only learns Present but it can be taught a couple of other moves also.

In PokéSmashEdit

Delibird makes an appearance as a unlockable character playing for the Ice Team. Despite being kind of weak in the games, Delibird has been "buffed up" in this game. It's now faster and is basically the balanced character of the Ice team. His Neutral Special is him just throwing a present. His Side Special is him grabbing forward. His Up Special is him flying up diagonally and smashing down. His Down Special is him releasing icy wind forward.

His in-game description here:


"The widely-ignored ice type bird from the 2nd Generation is here to kick some tail! And show that he too belongs in the big leagues! Watch out! Or else you'll turn up in his bag."
