How to train a Pichu amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Note: At the time of writing, the Pichu amiibo is not available for pre-order. However, since amiibo inherit their tendencies from Level 9 CPUs, it is possible to write preliminary guides by studying the behavior of a Level 9 Pichu CPU. Feel free to refer back to this guide once the Pichu amiibo becomes available for purchase.

Given that Pichu is Pikachu’s baby form, it would be safe to assume that Pichu is the weaker Pokémon. Despite being the lightest character in the game (not to mention that using its attack deals recoil damage), Pichu is actually just about on par with its evolved form. Many characters’ amiibo are viable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Pichu’s is no exception.

How to train a Piranha Plant amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Piranha Plant was undoubtedly the most surprising newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nobody expected to see a common Super Mario enemy have such a creative and unique moveset, let alone be playable at all. Although Piranha Plant is considered low-tier in competitive Smash, the amiibo game is a different story. Despite its shortcomings, Piranha Plant can contend with the best.

How to train a Mii Gunner amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The transition from Super Smash Bros. 4 to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate changed a lot. Several top-tier characters in the previous title were nerfed, and as a result their tier placement in Ultimate is lower. Mii Gunner, however, is exactly the opposite: in Smash 4, she was below-average at best and low-tier at worst; in Ultimate, she is considered one of (if not the) best characters in the game and has taken the championship titles of many tournaments.

How to train a Kirby amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In Super Smash Bros. 4, Kirby’s amiibo was rather average. Although Kirby possessed a powerful moveset with high utility, he was held back by short range and several AI flaws. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, amiibo AI was completely revamped. Fortunately for Kirby, this AI update corrected the flaws he suffered from in the previous title. He still isn’t perfect, but he’s been given a fresh coat of paint that makes him well worth training.

How to train an Ice Climbers amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Ice Climbers made their Smash debut in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The unique duo (consisting of Popo and Nana) were to work together to overwhelm opponents with well-timed combo attacks. Since then, they’ve become a series staple, and return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For the first time ever, trainers have the opportunity to raise an Ice Climbers amiibo! Doing so is no easy task, however; teaching the character to fully utilize its pink-clad partner is a tall order.
