• 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? 8 / 9
