Only hammer I used so far was the Ken special one, that's the kind of gimmick no one wants to actually do.

I finished off the online wall earlier, no hammers required.

Goddammit, just did quite well with Chrom's Classic Mode but because I got KO'd once I only got to 9.7 instead of 9.9.

I'm surprised that everyone vetoed the Ken challenge of all things.

Same. I managed to finish all challenges without using any single hammer. I was kinda disappointed how easy it was, comparing to Smash Wii U.

the rest of the challenges are pretty easy, so I had a bunch of hammers leftover so I just hammered ones I was impatient with (200 online games) or couldn't be bothered (Robin jab kill and Ken challenge)

This 9.9 challenge is stressing me out. Wish it was easier and the amount of difficulty isn’t randomized. Fuck that
the amount of difficulty isn't totally random, it's based on performance during the battle. Generally speaking, finishing fights faster and with lower damage will give more than taking a long time or taking a lot of damage

So what's the maths behind exploration activities? In the Toadette one it feels like it's just random. I can put in one Lvl 99 legendary of each type and get 1,800 but then do the same with different Spirits and only get 800.

I found Robin's super easy (thanks to SSD and walk-offs).

Only other hammer I used was the "Eat 5 recovery items in a single run of Classic" (because that sounds really annoying waiting for stuff to spawn if you don't know what Kirby's Classic mode entails, which I didn't).

Can somebody give me some advice how to tackle the Robin challenge the best and easiest way?
You can do it in the Sudden Death mode, and it should kill if you're close to the edge.

If that's too risky, pick a walkoff stage and camp the blast zone.

Man, I wish the Mii Fighter images weren't so horribly low-res. I get that they can't render every Mii you make at the stupid-large resolutions the regular character portraits are rendered at but surely some anti-aliasing and a slightly higher resolution could work...

They almost seem lower res than they were in Smash 4...

I actually wouldn't have minded if they just used the blanked out face renders they use for the Vs loading screen

Yeah, I created a 'Nia' (from Xenoblade Chronicles 2) Mii Brawler and the appeal is kinda lost seeing how horrible her portrait looks. I still like creating the Miis, though, I seem to be a lot less negative on them than most other people I've seen.

The problem with that is that you wouldn't know what they looked like unless you remembered how you made them (or gave them the names of the characters they're supposed to be).

Probably not a big issue if you're the one that made them, probably a huge hassle if you're a guest.

I've used all of my hammers on the Online page because I'd rather not pay for online play.

I'm knocking out the remaining ones through the free trial.

Stock up on Classic Tickets ahead of time, play well on the earlier stages so that you can get to 9.9 relatively early (before starting the boss stage at minimum), and use the tickets if and only if you've already hit 9.9 during the run.

I have no idea how to beat Cloud with any character. He has so many cheap shots I feel like. His seems like a free kill, his moves have crazy priority, and he’s fast with long range. Any tips?

For summoning spirits, domthey all use unique cores? (Apart from the grab/defense/attack cores)?

I want to summon, but I'm worried I will waste a core.

Are any characters only available via summon?

A lot of characters are only available via summon. Most need at least one unique core, many need two.

Some of the summons, such as Ho-oh, are available in World of LIght.

Just made a Spirit design template if you wanna make one of your own:



I know it's not exactly the most well-made but it should do the job!

No they don’t all use unique cores.


Speaking of cores, where do I get the ‘roll’ core/spirit. Trying to get legendary proto-man

It's super easy to finish off the mob without touching the attack button, but items or get up attacks make you have to do the whole thing over again and it's hard to tell until you finish if that happened or not.

Does anyone know if it works if they hurt themselves with items? I thought that was the only reason I failed and why I gave up on it, but maybe I just never noticed a getup attack or being the one to set off an item.

I'm pretty sure I cleared that challenge even after they KO'd each other with items.

I just disabled the attack and grab buttons to be extra careful.

Is that the only way? Roll is not in world of light?
Not that I have seen so far. I'm not all the way through it yet, but I'm pretty far. I beat the first two bosses and am at the part where
if you win two many fights against light enemies it makes the dark stronger, and vice versa.

I’m not there yet.


Does anyone have any thoughts on what is the ‘easist’ primary legend to get is? My roster is 3 Stars. But it feels like I’ve run into a situation.where I can’t get any legends

My first one was trevor, who I won on the spirit board. My second was baby Mario, also from the spirit board who was a level 3 that I upgraded to level 4. That's the easiest way to do it. Find level 3 (and even some level 2) spirits that will upgrade to level 4.

And make sure you get your ACEs all the way to level 99 and play against weaknesses.

Get the gym unlocked if you haven't yet and use it to level up characters for you while you're sleeping, at work/school, etc.

2 star characters that enhance to 4 star:

Young Zelda
Skull kid
Dark suit (Metroid)
Nightmare's Power Orb - maybe the easiest to find? I think I see this all the time.
Keldeo-original form
Diancie
Elincia
Medussa
Bulborb
Zero (zero buster)
Mumkhar
dj Octavio (can be summoned)
Frog & Snake
Dr. Kawashima

The douchebags that set the 3 stock 3 minute ruleset shouldn't be allowed online.

Literally 90% of my encounters with them revolves around them running away with their last stock at high percentages while I'm trying to finish things up then waiting to luck out on sudden death.

Clouds biggest weakness is his poor recovery options. It can be easy to gimp him if you play around edges.

Then again, his neutral game is too strong against some characters, who are you using mainly?

I've been having so much fun playing as Wario lately! Thinking he could actually end up being my main. Going through Classic mode is really opening my eyes to characters that I would otherwise be just looking over. (as in the past)

Question, though: Is using his bike a viable way to try to edgeguard?

Just had probably the worst match I've ever played online

Me as Dark Samus vs a laggy Duck Hunt on Hazardless Fourside

He just camped the entire game and I couldn't approach because the stage is set up weird and perfect for Duck Hunt's shenanigans.

I played a dreadful Duck Hunt last night as well. Camped on the extreme ends of the stage and would just spam the can, frisbee and cowboy summons. Fucked him up in Sudden Death though, thank goodness.

Fucker had like 2.9 million GSP too.
