With Nintendo dropping patch 3.1 a few weeks ago we can now look and see how the meta is shaping up after the dust has settled.
1 / 9
Pichu and Pikachu are two pokemon who are still fantastic, despite Pichu receiving some nerfs.
2 / 9
Lucina and Peach are both doing well after a bit of nerfs to their toolkits as well.
3 / 9
Wolf's down smash now has less knockback and his laster causes increased vulnerability, but he is still strong.
4 / 9
Fox brings consistency in his fighting style and overall power. He has always felt like a great point to start in the game.
5 / 9
Inkling also offers strong mechanics and consistency. This seems to come at the cost of not being able to easily finish off opponents.
6 / 9
Joker and Solid Snake are both great characters, but both demand that players know their opponent in order to pay off.
7 / 9
Kirby and Piranha Plant meanwhile are still terrible. Will Nintendo ever buff them to give them their chance to shine?
