Lugia is a type of Pokemon that comes out of a Poke Ball in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Lugia is a "legendary Pokemon", making its appearance rare. So because of that, when Lugia appears, (as with almost every other rare Poke Ball Pokemon in Brawl) a hidden audience will make a short gasp. Anyway, when Lugia appears, much like Ho-oh, it slowly flies upward and ends up in the background. It then releases its attack, which is called Aeroblast. When it releases Aeroblast, a tornado-like blast of wind will come from Lugia and travel across a small part of the stage. Any character (except the summoner) that comes in contact with this tornado-like blast of wind will take incredible Damage and Knockback, usually resulting in an OHKO. Players (except the summoner) also take great Damage and Knockback if they touch Lugia when it appears, however, it does not always result in a Star KO, Screen KO, etc. Lugia is said to have been nerfed (weakened) from Super Smash Bros. Melee to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This is because touching Lugia does not always KO an opponent, touching Lugia's Aeroblast does not always result in an OHKO, and Lugia's Aeroblast travels along a smaller part of the stage than in Melee. However, Aeroblast can still KO an opponent at a Damage percentage as low as 35%. This makes Lugia, arguably, one of the best Pokemon characters (that come out of a Poke Ball) in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Lugia also has its own Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

A Diving Pokemon. A legendary Pokemon often referred to as "guardian of the seas," it has the impressive ability to control the wind. Lugia typically spends its time quietly at the bottom of the ocean. Highly powerful in all areas, Lugia's Aeroblast move is especially powerful. It uses strong flapping of its wind to target damage on a foe's weak spot.
