Saffron City is a Pokémon stage in Super Smash Bros. and returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The stage is set upon the Silph Co. building and is the home stage of Pikachu and Jigglypuff (with the unlock match for the latter taking place here). The stage has the most features of any stage in the game. On the right side of the arena, there are floating platforms. On the left side of the arena, there is a door leading down the stairs, but when one tries to go down, a random Pokémon out a few jumps out to attack the fighters.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Silph Co. logo is spelled "Silf" in the Japanese version.
    • Also, the banner on the left side is slightly altered between both versions. The Japanese banner has an example of Engrish in which it reads "Got a catch 'em all!".
  • The city seems to be modeled after the Pokémon anime, as the games' cities and towns are not as detailed (this includes major cities such as Celadon or Goldenrod).
  • Saffron City is the only stage in Super Smash Bros. that did not return in or have a similar stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
