Item of the Month #89: Wild Pitch

#1

BEASTBALL

Source: Super Smash Bros. series
Featured in: Ultimate
Type: Throwing
Special effect: Disappearing homing weapon.

Trivia:
--If the initial throw hits an opponent, the reappearance hit will target that same opponent.
--Otherwise the reappearance will target the nearest opponent.

I'm fairly confident there's something like this in Super Mario Sluggers.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

The way it disappears and then reappears is pretty ace.

I'm honestly still not sure how this thing works

^When thrown, it vanishes, locks onto an opponent (either the one it initially hits or the closest one), then reappears & goes after them, probably hitting them. The direction you throw it affects the direction it's going when it reappears, but I'm not 100% sure how.
