Updated: Oct 18

I chose those words carefully last time because this set is more than just a "pairing":


MISCELLANY

--Faster.

--Pikmin are more vulnerable.

--Grabs are stronger with blue/more Pikmin.


MR. GAME & WATCH

--Unlocks: #52 in Vs, #6 in Pikachu's Classic line (after Villager, Shulk, ROB, Mega Man, & Isabelle), or in the maze in the Light Realm of WoL.

--Faster.

--Fair is now a bomb drop.

--Chef can now be aimed.

CAPTAIN FALCON

--Faster.

--Altered first jab & f-smash.

--Knee of Justice has a bigger hitbox.

--No longer stabs with battering item f-smash.

--Raptor Boost doesn't trigger helpless fall if it connects.


ROB

--Unlocks: #31 in Vs, #3 in Pikachu's Classic line (after Villager & Shulk), or in the Mysterious Dimension in the Dark Realm of WoL.

--Faster & smaller.

--Robo Burner has more fuel & shows a fuel gauge.

DUCK HUNT

--Faster & lighter.

--Trick Shot can now be shot in the air.

--Clay Shoot now explodes into shrapnel.

--Duck Jump can cancel into an attack or dodge before helpless fall, & it can be reused after a windbox.


Guided Robo Beam is definitely a step up over Super Diffusion Beam, but I still prefer the original Diffusion Beam.


And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
