A Month Later – What We’ve Discovered Thus Far

Wow, a month has already flown by and the amiibo community is thriving! Over 600 members in our Discord server, regular tournaments and an all-around great group of people working on developing the meta. We’ve seen so many different sides of Ultimate: between the updated AI and the changes in character strength from 4 to Ultimate, those of us on the “Unofficial Research Team” have been working extra hard to answer the questions piling up about this unfamiliar territory. So let’s not waste any time and get right into the thick of things, beginning with the question we get the most.

If you’re interested in the full matchup data, check out our official tournament records. Here’s a silly (and wildly inaccurate) tier list based on results from these two competitions.

Stream Analysis: December 12, 2018 (Jigglypuff)

Today’s stream was rather short, but for good reason. We only trained one character! This time around, we focused on Jigglypuff and tried to answer one burning question: can it use Rest? 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.
