Section 1: Amiibo Overview / Pros & Cons
Wii Fit Trainer is a difficult character to play, and a difficult amiibo to train. Her moveset is strange and unorthodox – specifically, the unusual hitbox placement on her attacks makes them tough to land. Even so, Wii Fit Trainer has several distinct advantages: her recovery potential is high, and she has a solid set of tilts as well as a decent neutral attack.
However, Wii Fit Trainer suffers from several flaws. As mentioned before, her attacks have strange hitboxes, and as a result, they lack range. As well as having poor range, Wii Fit Trainer’s smash attacks are also quite weak, which severely limits their usefulness. Finally, Wii Fit Trainer’s AI tends to overuse uncharged Sun Salutations and underuse its down special, Deep Breathing.
Overall, there really is not much to say about Wii Fit Trainer. As an amiibo, she is just about average, and it takes an experienced trainer to push this character any further.
Section 2: Recommended Equipment
Wii Fit Trainer – Recommended Stats & Bonuses
For more information on equipment, including instructions on how to farm for custom parts, please read the amiibo equipment guide.
Before you begin training your amiibo, you must equip it with a viable setup of stats and bonuses. The following build has been extensively tested and proven effective:
+70 Attack / +70 Defense / -20 Speed
Wii Fit Trainer – Recommended Custom Moves
- Sweeping Sun Salutation: The energy ball travels slower, hits multiple times, and has a windbox while charging. Wii Fit Trainer also recovers more health when this attack is fully charged.
Once your amiibo’s equipment setup is refined and ready to go, your training will officially begin! If you encountered a problem while feeding your amiibo, feel free to jump into Cloud Nine’s Discord server to ask a question.
Section 3: Training Your Amiibo
Amiibo training is a very specific task, and for the best possible results, you will need to go about it very carefully. You can’t just go all-out and use combos and aerials: both of these are frowned upon in the amiibo metagame. Instead, you should remain grounded at all times, punishing your amiibo for every aerial move it uses against you.
To help your amiibo properly utilize its moveset, you will mirror match it from Level 1 all the way to Level 50. Playing timed matches on Ω-form stages is highly recommended.
Wii Fit Trainer – Training Tips
- Primary damage-racking moves: jab, forward tilt, and down tilt. Wii Fit Trainer’s neutral attack hits three times, and the third hit buries opponents. This can lead into a forward tilt or a down tilt – both of which pack respectable power.
- Primary KO moves: forward smash, up smash, and down smash. Wii Fit Trainer’s smash attacks are slow and lack range, but they are her only KO options. Forward smash is generally the most reliable of the three – use this move with decisive timing for best effect.
- Moves to avoid: neutral special and side special. Wii Fit Trainer should avoid using her neutral special. It is difficult to find a good opportunity to fully charge the move, and firing it uncharged deals negligible damage. Header also brings Wii Fit Trainer very little benefit.
When your amiibo finally reaches Level 50, its training will truly begin. Just like a real player, amiibo need match experience and practice against different characters. For more information on training your amiibo past Level 50, follow this link.
Section 4: Conclusion & Credits
Thank you so much for reading! Although the guide may be coming to an end, your training most certainly isn’t: there’s always a way to make an amiibo stronger, and yours is no exception. If you need additional help, give the Amiibo Mechanics & Metagame Guide a read. If you want to ask specific questions, you can also stop by Cloud Nine’s Discord server.
If your desire to read amiibo training guides and articles hasn’t been entirely fulfilled, there are some more posts here that you might like. Cloud Nine’s ongoing series, Amiibo Training Analysis, analyzes a specific aspect of the metagame in great detail. Meanwhile, the official amiibo tier list ranks every amiibo’s overall capabilities – you might even learn something new if you take a look at it. The FAQ is another good resource worth checking out.
