I’ve had enough “Leaf is the hero” jokes to last me a lifetime, and yet I’m still looking forward to the Hero amiibo making his debut in the metagame.

Welcome to the highly-demanded second post on Raid Boss amiibo! For this post, I’m going to take on an analytical view of the mindset and method required to train a great Raid Boss amiibo. Keep in mind that this entire genre of amiibo falls out of our specialty – but with my understanding of amiibo AI and bonus effects, I think I can be considered more than credible on this subject. Without further ado, let’s get into the steps!
