Super Smash Bros. series

In the original Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64, in the Saffron City stage Moltres can be seen flying in the background every few minutes. It did not change gameplay.

In the rest of Super Smash Bros. series, Moltres comes out of a Pokéball, and will stay in place, then fly away. If anyone touches it, they will burn and get a ton of damage and knockback. Moltres is a trophy in these games also.

Trophy descriptions

Melee

As tradition has it, the onset of spring heralds the return of this legendary Pokémon from its southern home. Its bright orange color and fiery aspect lends to its overwhelming appearance. Sky Attack, the strongest of flying moves, is a perfect fit for this burning phenom, but it obviously also excels at powerful Fire-type moves.

Brawl

A Flame Pokémon. It's one of the legendary bird Pokémon. When Moltres appears in a town, it is said that spring will come earlier there than in other towns. If Moltres is injured, it apparently returns to a volcano to heal its wings with magma. Moltres spreads its wide, flame-covered wings and attacks opponents with the exciting and highly damaging Sky Attack.

3DS / Wii U

This Fire/Flying-type Pokémon is one of three Legendary birds in the Kanto region. It will use Fly when called into a Smash Bros. battle, flapping its orange wings and sending fire out around it. Getting hit hurts and could launch you so far, you'd make Moltres jealous. That isn't a good thing...
