Keeping in line with this pattern, our Samus and Dark Samus guides are also the same as each other!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Inkling amiibo Guide

If you’d like to learn more about Inkling’s metagame history, you can do so over at its corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
