Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta: Where You Can Get Them and Training Speculations

Hello, everybody! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Blakers, a veteran amiibo trainer who has seven tournament wins! As you know (or if you don’t, I’m about to tell you), the amiibo for Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta were announced on the most recent Nintendo Direct! As somebody who’s wanted to train these characters very badly, I figured that since we still have over three months of waiting, I could write about them to prepare the community for their arrival. In this article, I will talk about where and when you can get these amiibo, give my personal speculations for how they should be trained, and place my bets on where they’ll end up in the metagame and the Tier List.

(Poll) Critical Hits & Explosive Perfect Shield: To Ban or Not to Ban?

Among the most controversial subjects in the amiibo metagame right now are the Critical-hit capability and Explosive perfect shield bonus effects. In fact, they’ve always been controversial. They’re by far and away the best amiibo bonus effects in the entire game, and tournament results reflect that – characters that come out on top almost always have them equipped. So then, there’s a question to be had, then. Should we keep these bonus effects? Or get rid of them entirely?

Amiibo Dojo: April Remodel

Hey guys, it’s been a long time, but I think I’m finally ready to start doing some real work on this site again. Can you believe the Amiibo Dojo is the only training site left on the internet? Yeah, the community suffered from quite the activity drop, but now, it’s time for us to swoop in and restore amiibo training to its former glory. I’m planning on rebooting this entire site, and I’ll share some of my ideas with you right now.

New Updates and Guides Coming Soon!

Hello readers! I am proud to announce that I’ll be releasing a Sheik guide, and be updating a couple of guides throughout the next few weeks. While I already have the Sheik guide wrote, I’ll be updating its format and be uploading it to the Dojo soon. As far as updates go, the Marth guide and Pac-Man will be getting an update soon.

I hope you look forward to these new guides!

Now Available: Luigi & Zelda Guides 2.0

It’s been four months. Four. Months. But now, the Amiibo Dojo finally, finally has some new content. This time around, we’ve got brand-new Luigi and Zelda amiibo training guides, courtesy of Arklaine, our resident expert on the two characters. These two guides were formerly horribly outdated, so a fresh coat of paint was much needed.

To take a look at the Luigi guide, click here. For Zelda, follow this link instead. Thanks for your patience! Soon enough, we’ll have another fresh batch of training guides ready to feast on, so until then!

The Amiibo Dojo is back in action

Hey guys, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately despite my inactivity. It’s obvious that there are still many of you out there who are interested in training amiibo, so I’ve decided that it’s time to get the ball rolling again. Without the Amiibo Dojo around, the metagame’s gone silent, with very few tournaments and active trainers remaining. Hopefully, when things start picking up again here, the competitive scene can start to reform itself.

In this post, I’m going to be talking about the changes you can expect to see on the site over the next few weeks. Even though the concept of amiibo is almost three years old, we’ve got a lot planned for you guys. Hope you enjoy!
