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 Several “news sites” have created their own amiibo training guides, but are actually rewording an outdated guide I posted years ago.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!

Third time’s the charm

-Gen. Jim Mattis

In Season 1, Dreamy Jay’s King DeDeDe, Mr. Mallet, went on a warpath through the Play-In Tournament, Divisional Rounds, and Playoffs. He lost only one set the entire way and claimed the first ever Professional Amiibo League title.

Last season, CyFy’s Bowser, ToughClaw, took only third in the Play-In Tournament, but didn’t lose a single set after that and claimed Season 2 title. But now Bowser has been banned. Incineroar has been banned too.
