Before we start, I’d like to say that this guide will not include painting amiibo. Perhaps in the future I’ll make a guide about it once I get the hang of it? Second, this guide is mostly aimed toward beginners who might be a bit too nervous to try out customizing amiibo. If you are somebody who is confident in your crafting skills, I recommend looking at Nintendo Wire’s Custom Conquest Show that premiered a few years back.
Mr. Game & Watch has many tools that make him somewhat obnoxious to play against… at least in Smash’s competitive scene. An excellent out of shield option, an fast down air that helps him return to the stage… problem is, in the context of amiibo training, almost none of that works. This is a recurring theme in our metagame: a character’s best tools against human players generally aren’t best against AI players. Mr. Game & Watch is no exception, and today, we’re going to talk about what makes this character tick.
Ever since the old days of amiibo training in Super Smash Bros. 4, Mii Brawler has been the least represented of the three Mii Fighters. Unfortunately, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is no exception, but certain trainers have given the character a much-needed chance to shine. There’s certainly potential to be found here, but it’s quite difficult to unlock. Today we’re going to look at how you might go about doing that!
Lucario was a top-tier threat in Super Smash Bros. 4. In that game, its Aura mechanic was stronger than ever; when paired with equipment, its attacks could reach nuclear power levels. Just one forward smash from Lucario was enough to KO an opponent. For its appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Lucario was significantly nerfed, and so it’s kind of fallen off the radar. It’s still got potential, though, and that’s what we’re here to discuss today!
In the context of amiibo training, Pac-Man is an interesting case. Way back in Super Smash Bros. 4, Pac-Man was considered one of the worst characters in the game. A group of dedicated trainers changed this, though, and now he’s a solid mid-tier contender! His metagame position is mostly the same in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, except he lacks that dedicated group of trainers he needs. He’s still got loads of potential, though, and that’s what we’re here to talk about today!
