Are we going to get any updates to this? Anything to keep the hype train rolling?
Sure, why not.
Meta Knight is just about done. We've changed a few things. I'll write up a more detailed version of this later, but Meta Knight's jab is reverted to vBrawl and improved to function like Sm4sh, with a limited time on the jab and a hitbox at the end of the attack sending foes away. It should now function as a move that can repel foes without being annoying or giving Meta Knight a free escape.
Meta Knight's fSmash charge animation has been reverted to vBrawl, but the attack is the same as before. It actually looks like he's performing a speedy and powerful strike now! The heal on his pummel has been removed, as it had no reason to be there when it was coded in, and later on it made uThrow easier to survive, but as compensation, its damage has been increased from 2%-3%.
Also, the dAir we've been testing in this build, which was a weak meteor, was discovered to be exploitable to carry foes to death. If it was explained before, this move will be reworked to not be a free kill against the cast in a way that's no different than MAX Beta Falco and Zelda's nAirs. More details in the future!
Sonic's Boost is now going to be 3.Q with a short cooldown (about half a second) to prevent Boost Dancing. In addition to this, Sonic will be a little lighter than before. This should make the Boost oriented Sonic much less annoying to go against without taking away too much of what makes him fun to play in the first place, like we found while testing the Sonic we had planned earlier.
In addition to this, Sonic's pummel will have its damage slightly reduced so it's not one of if not the most powerful pummel in the game.
Lucario will be receiving a slight rework in his aura mechanics. x3 at 300% is good on paper, but in execution, we're to believe it's what broke Lucario for so many versions. This Lucario rework is still in its early stages, so I'll explain more later. Don't worry, ULTRA TAUNT isn't going anywhere.
Wario's bike exploding will no longer hurt himself. However, he can now only use his bike once per air time, so don't think about stalling with powerful explosions!
Also a bunch of pummels have been adjusted in general.
and I hope you like Ice because I've got an ice surprise for you: Literally Frozen Pokemon Stadium 2 will be returning to Minus 4.0! Now there's a place outside of Summit for you to slip, slide, smash, and die on! A great stage for messing around and having fun!
