amiibo Style Guide: Logical

Welcome! It’s time for the first entry in a long-requested series of guides: amiibo personality types. Now, I’m not going to sit here and act like I know everything about these – there’s still much to be discovered, which is why we’ve been rather quiet in terms of posts and updates. There are over fifteen styles available, and Logical is one that many Smash 4 veteran trainers get on their amiibo. We’re going to go over what this personality is, how its amiibo play, and how you can get it on your own amiibo. Let’s get started.

The second Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo tournament has concluded

For the first time ever, a Yoshi amiibo has taken the championship title of an amiibo tournament. Throughout the many years of Smash 4, this hadn’t happened even once.

In Smash 4, Jigglypuff amiibo could be taught to use Rest, but if it missed even once, it would forget how to use it. The link to the full stream archive can be found here. Without further ado, let’s begin.

Stream Analysis: December 11, 2018 (Ness & Ridley)

Welcome to the first Amiibo Dojo Stream Analysis! As you may or may not know, I like to stream amiibo training when I’ve got the time to. Given that Smash Ultimate is a new game, watching amiibo battles live can help us all learn together. Today’s stream focused on Ness and Ridley, two characters I’ve written about already. It started off slow, but by the end, we made some important discoveries that could help us in the future. The link to the full stream archive can be found here. Now then, let’s get started.
