Super Smash Bros series
Thunder was a move that Pikachu and Pichu could perform in the Super Smash Bros. series, which consists of Super Smash Bros. (Pikachu), Super Smash Bros. Melee (Pikachu, Pichu), and Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Pikachu). In the Super Smash Bros. series, the move would bring a bolt of lightning down from above, damaging any opponent above you. Pichu's Thunder move was slightly different, as it would harm the Pokémon if it touched it, while this wasn't the case with its evolved form.
With Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the thunder cloud has been lowered but, now has a meteor effect in the cloud useful for spiking enemies for combos
