Jigglypuff (Super Smash Bros. Brawl & Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

NOTE: This page is discussing on how badly nerfed it was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS, not to mention that this page is only judging it on its moveset and playstyle, not it as a character. Jigglypuff will not be referred to with words like he/she, as while it is not non-binary, its gender is unknown.

Jigglypuff is a Normal/Fairy (Originally only Normal) Type Pokémon, it’s also the second evolution of Igglybuff, but it would evolve into Wigglytuff when exposed to the Moon Stone from the Pokémon Series. It also appeared in the Super Smash Bros. Games, which it is fun to play as in, except in Brawl & Wii-U/3DS where it was badly nerfed in.

Why It Gets Ko’d by Rest

  1. It was Nerfed really badly, despite being good in the last game (Melee), it was nerfed to the point of bottom 3 tier.
  2. Its Rest move was nerfed to allowing only KOs at 70-80, which is total nonsense.
  3. Its Dash Speed on the ground is extremely slow.
  4. Its Ground Attacks are either too slow or too weak, leaving it wide opened to be easily smacked.
  5. Its reach is poor.
  6. Like in the Previous games and even Ultimate, it can easily get KO’d from its own Shield Break
  7. Its Final Smash, Puff Up is useless and uncreative as all it does is make It big and it’s only effective on Walk-off stages and/or smaller stages. (This Problem continues in Ultimate).
  8. Its moveset was barely changed in Sm4sh and many of the flaws it had in the previous game (Brawl) were not improved.
    • This lead to it becoming a bottom tiered character again.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It possesses a good aerial game, especially in its recovery and air mobility.
  2. It is mostly improved on in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Trivia

  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the only game where Jigglypuff is a starter character.
