Pokémon Sword & Shield – Shiny Hunting Guide

By all accounts, trainers looking for Shiny Pokémon are better off hatching eggs. That being said, hunting Wild Pokémon comes with a slew of potential benefits that you can’t get through any other shiny hunting methods — these include marks and square sparkles. Marks, in particular, are rather interesting; Pokémon that have them can be given custom titles that appear whenever they’re called upon in battle! If you’re looking for the best way to hunt Wild Shiny Pokémon, look no further!

Pokémon UNITE – Beginner Tips & Tricks

Pokémon UNITE has been quite a ride so far. At the time of writing I’m currently sitting at Master Rank, and achieving it solo was a real struggle. I’d like to think that I’ve learned a lot about the game along the way, so I’ve gathered a list of tips for new players looking for help — some of these tips were really helpful to me as I advanced in the rankings.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Pikachu amiibo Guide

Before we begin, join us in a moment of silence for the loss of custom moves — because Pikachu was their biggest beneficiary in Super Smash Bros. 4. In that game, it couldn’t make any tournament progress unless it spammed its custom down special, Thunder Burst. This move was removed in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and now Pikachu is stuck with regular old Thunder. If you’d like to learn even more about its metagame history, feel free to check out its corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to LML123 for contributing Pikachu’s training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Pokémon Trainer amiibo Guide

Over the years, we’ve received a lot of questions regarding the Pokémon Trainer Figure Player. That’s understandable, then, because you would think that Pokémon Trainer is a complicated character. Unfortunately, you’d be thinking wrong: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s developers really took the easy way out crafting this fighter’s AI, and it shows. If you’d like to learn more about Pokémon Trainer’s metagame history before we begin (and how good Charizard was in Super Smash Bros. 4), feel free to read his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Lucario amiibo Guide

Welcome to our Lucario amiibo guide! 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 levels of power — just one forward smash from Lucario was often enough to KO its opponent! For its appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Lucario was significantly nerfed, and so it’s kind of fallen off the radar. If you’d like to learn more about its full metagame history, please refer to its corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
