A quick note on amiibo .bin editing

Hey all, I would like to take this opportunity to make it clear that the editing of an amiibo’s level, personality, or move priority is not welcome on Exion or its Discord server. We understand that studying the data and format of an amiibo file is hard work, but we would also like to support legitimate training strategies. “Training” an amiibo solely by editing its values sucks the fun and purpose out of the hobby, and we want to stay as far away from that as possible. Thanks for understanding!


On the subject of plagiarism

As avid site readers might know, I started the Amiibo Dojo way back in August 2015. We quickly became the number one source of all things amiibo training, and although the name Amiibo Dojo has been retired, its content is still created on a regular basis (sometimes). Unfortunately, we’ve had an issue within the past few months: plagiarism of our guides. Several “news sites” have created their own amiibo training guides, but are actually rewording an outdated guide I posted years ago. Today, I’m going to debunk my own writings and explain why so many journalists have essentially copy-pasted my work.

Happy 9th anniversary, Exion!

It’s nearly February 24, 2020 — and nine years ago, our community was born! Of course, we only recently found our footing as Exion; over the years, we went through many different names and iterations. If you’re a new reader and want to learn about some of our history, you’ve come to the right place! In the spirit of our ninth anniversary, I am going to outline our community and its past.

If you aren’t ready to read a massive wall of text, then I’ll leave you with this: thanks for sticking around for nine years. Things have been picking up for us, and I hope to see our community continue to grow and thrive. You, as viewers, are the most important part of our work, and I am very thankful for that!

….. oh, and we have a Nintendo eShop card giveaway going on Twitter if you would like to enter! Here’s the link for that.

Project Exion Update #4: Oddity

It’s been quite some time since my last update on Project Exion, and given the recent reveal of Oddity (the rebranded version of the fanmade Mother 4), I figure it’s time for another one. For those of you who might be new to the site, Project Exion is a game I’ve been working on for about a year and half, though it’s still in an extremely early state. Today we’re going to talk about the future of this project and address the “elephant in the room.”

Project Exion Update #3: Interlude

Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve last posted any updates on Project Exion – in fact, it’s been almost four months – but here we are again. I’m happy to report that I’ve accomplished almost nothing in that time: nothing tangible, at least. I’ve solidified a bit more of the story, but there’s still a long way to go. Today’s update will be rather short, but there’s still a little bit to share regardless!
