Welcome to Cloud Nine, home of the most in-depth amiibo training guides on the internet! That’s not really saying much, though, because Cloud Nine is the only active provider of amiibo training content. Although amiibo training has been around since 2014, it still interests many Super Smash Bros. players to this day.
Depending on how much you already know about amiibo training, you may have the misconception that you play as your amiibo in Super Smash Bros. This is not the case. Instead, amiibo are beefed-up CPU characters that you can train as rivals. When you play against them, they pick up on your tactics and strategies and adopt them as their own.
When scanned into Super Smash Bros. for the first time, your amiibo will start at Level 1. In this state, it’s more of a punching bag than an actual opponent. As it levels up, it will become more active and use your own strategies against you. It will eventually reach Level 50, its most powerful form – in this state, its Attack and Defense far surpass that of a normal CPU fighter. Amiibo can also be fed equipment to further boost their Attack, Defense, and Speed.
As silly as it might sound, there’s actually an amiibo metagame in which trainers send a copy of their amiibo to a tournament host. Once sent, each amiibo will battle to determine an ultimate winner. If you want to learn more about the amiibo metagame, check out the Online Tournaments page. While some trainers love entering their amiibo into competitions, others aren’t too keen on training competitively, and have a more relaxed approach to amiibo training. Either way, Cloud Nine’s amiibo training guides have something for everyone.
Before you start training, there are a few other resources you may find helpful. If you’re interested in training your amiibo competitively, the amiibo equipment guide is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of stats and bonus effects. If you have any questions, the amiibo training FAQ can help provide you with answers. When you decide that you have a good grip on the basics of amiibo training, you can start your training with one of Cloud Nine’s amiibo character guides. Good luck!
