The 'Shroom:Issue LVII/Brawl Tactics
What's up, Brawlers? I hope you all aren't too busy on your 3DS's to check out what's new in Brawl Tactics! This month, I will be doing the stage Yoshi's Island!
Despite its small amount of actual stage space, the room you have to launch others is incredible. This is evident in this stage's ability to house multiple Pokemon (as items) at one time. I've had two Kyogres on the stage at one time. Talk about giving your opponent a headache! Now, I would recommend using a character that has a high jump, like Captain Falcon or Zero Suit Samus, or a flying character, like Pit or Meta Knight, so you can do some serious damage in the air. If you can knock your opponent far off the stage, it's a pretty safe bet that they won't be able to recover. However, there are two panels that move up out of the bottom of the stage that you can catch. Bad for you if your opponent manages to get on one, but good for you if you manage to hit one if you fall. they don't stay for long, though, so don't expect a long-term solution in these.
Yoshi's Island also comes complete with its very own set of Shy Guys! Yes, these flying helpers can give you a big boost by giving you food when you knock it out of their grip. Sometimes these guys can provide you with a whole meal that will restore you to full health! I'd say hit them whenever you see them. this is definitely the time for that.
If the scenery in the background doesn't distract you, I find that many items fall here, especially Pokéballs. Pick whatever suits you and go with it. With the small stage, items can be very useful here. The fireworks cannon is a big one. With its long range and high launch power, you can send midair opponents flying without having to leave the stage. Plus you'll get to see a show as well.
That's it for this month, Brawlers! Give Yoshi's Island a shot, I'm sure you'll love it. Tune in next month to Brawl Tactics! Merry Christmas!
