Why do Figure Players tend to freeze during Free-for-Alls?

The idea of a free-for-all frenzy involving multiple amiibo at once is a very exciting idea to those new to training. Unfortunately, as most experienced trainers will tell you, it often ends up in the same way: sooner or later some or all of the Figure Players present in the match will simply stop moving. They’ll end up just standing still completely vulnerable to incoming attacks, and for the longest time no one really knew why this would happen. With some new research, we may have found an answer!

Join Exion’s official edited amiibo tour (limited slots)

Yesterday, the Exion Discord community announced the newest entry in its sophisticated and elite series of tournaments (which are referred to as F.A.R.T.). This time around, all edited Figure Players are both allowed and encouraged! A new amiibo editing tool was released just the other day, so it should be easier than ever to whip up a freshly-edited FP. You can join our aforementioned Discord server if you need any help learning how to edit.

In the meantime, here are the rules! Incineroar, Kazuya, and Captain Falcon are banned from this particular tournament, each trainer is allowed to use 1 FP, and they must be vanilla. Submissions are due by March 31, so be sure to enter — slots are capped at 32 trainers. You have to be a member of the server to join, so once you’re there, check out the tournaments channel for the submission look. Good luck to everyone entering!

The Raid Boss amiibo tier list’s character placements, explained

In case you aren’t already aware, we recently updated our Raid Boss tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unlike our other tier lists, this one specifically is more subjective because you can’t really rank Raid Bosses using tournament data. To help clear up any potential confusion, we’ve put together a list of every character on the tier list and why they’re ranked in their respective tiers. Do note that this post covers the Raid Boss tier list as it appeared on March 17, 2022 — it’s possible that we update the list in the future.

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

Steve is one of the more complicated Figure Players to train in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Between the ability to mine, craft, and place blocks, training this character might sound intimidating. Luckily, you don’t even have to use any of these moves during the matches you play — which will make training a Steve FP a whole lot easier. If you’d like to read more about his metagame history before you continue, you can do so via his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Gotelin for contributing Steve’s training information!

With that warning out of the way, let’s get into the full list of each new Hisuian Pokémon.
