Commissions are officially open

Hi all, I’m here with a different kind of post today. I recently left my job and am currently looking for another one (in the meantime, my job title is full time administrator of Exion Vault and the Dojo). To help make ends meet, I have opened art commissions to any of you who might be interested. I’d really appreciate it if you considered commissioning something! If you’d like to see examples of my work (besides all of the site graphics used here), you can follow this link to check out my art portfolio. If you’d like to commission something, you can do so here. Thanks very much for considering!

How to train a Pichu amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Given that Pichu is Pikachu’s baby form, it would be safe to assume that Pichu is the weaker Pokémon. Despite being the lightest character in the game (not to mention that using its attack deals recoil damage), Pichu is actually just about on par with its evolved form. Many characters’ amiibo are viable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Pichu’s is no exception.

But if amiibo training had been present in earlier titles? Today we’re going to take a look at AI in Super Smash Bros. Melee and try to figure out how amiibo may have behaved.

How to train a King K. Rool amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

After years of clamoring, Donkey Kong’s arch-nemesis, King K. Rool, has finally joined the Super Smash Bros. series! As many veteran trainers know, the Super Smash Bros. 4 amiibo metagame was dominated by heavyweight fighters — namely Bowser and Ganondorf. We know for a fact that King K. Rool would have been successful in the previous title, but what about in Ultimate, where movement options and mobility are faster than ever before? Fortunately for K. Rool, he can hold his own, and with proper training, can become a force to be reckoned with.

How to train a Piranha Plant amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Piranha Plant was undoubtedly the most surprising newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nobody expected to see a common Super Mario enemy have such a creative and unique moveset, let alone be playable at all. Although Piranha Plant is considered low-tier in competitive Smash, the amiibo game is a different story. Despite its shortcomings, Piranha Plant can contend with the best.
