Jigglypuff is a character that has different aerial options than the other fighters. Indeed, Jiglypuff has 6 jumps, which allows Puff to freely move around in the air. However, his Up B doesn't go up, but makes the character sing a lullaby, putting your opponents to sleep. Puff also has a property that is quite problematic. If his Shield is broken, Puff dies immediately, no matter what percentages he is at.

Best moves

  • SIDE B

    An extremely useful attack that helps Puff moving around in the air or on the ground, and which has a hitbox that stays active for a long time. This move also deals a lot of damage to the opponent's shield, and can even break it, while also starting deadly combos.

  • DASH ATTACK

    Puff's best killmove on the ground, that can kill anyone around 110% near the ledge, while also giving the possibility to pass through the opponent's shield. It is also a great tool for chasing your opponent on the ground, who will likely never expect a grounded move from Jigglypuff.

  • FORWARD AIR

    One of the best aerial options of Jigglypuff. This move helps to defend the ledge, and can even lead to a rest when the move is slightly delayed.

  • NEUTRAL AIR

    One of Jigglypuff's best aerial options. Unlike the Forward Air, this move has a better ejection power, which makes it usually useful to end a combo.

  • DOWN B

    The rest is Puff's signature move. This risky move will send most of the cast flying away at 60% on Final Destination, and is excellent for punishing a roll-lover ! But, stay aware that, even if there are some ways for safely use that move, the rest has a 4 seconds cooldown, which will let you totally vulnerable.

    Last tips

    KEEP THE SCENE FOR YOURSELF

    Jigglypuff is a character that can heavily punish his opponents when they find themselves in a complicated situation. That’s why you will have to learn how to edgeguard well, and to learn how to predict your opponent's trajectory while they are recovering in order to efficiently punish them. This also goes for any tech chase situation, you have to learn how to cover each option your opponent has left while he is in that situation.

    A LOVELY DISARMING SMILE

    Jigglypuff has very interesting moves, like the Side B and the Down air, especially if you combine them. Indeed, you can nearly break your opponent’s shield with the side B, before shield-poking your enemy with a down air. This will create an opening almost every time, so don’t hesitate to use those moves. Likewise, Jigglypuff has a lot of jumps, so don’t mind to use them to easily edgeguard an opponent offstage !

    THE REST BEFORE THE SLAPS

    Becoming better goes through a solid knowledge of your attacks and abilities. Puff being a light character, be cautious on using the best momentum for using one or another move, in order to punish your opponent the most. Beyond that, Jigglypuff has the best aerial mobility of the entire game, which can easily disrupt a player who is not well prepared. So you must get used to this special mobility in order to space well.

    In a nutshell

    With Jigglypuff, you’ll know that when you win, it is thanks to your skill and your controller ! This brings an exhilarating feeling, not mentionning the fact that the character is unique, because he isn’t limited like his opponents, mostly by his multiple jumps ! Besides, Puff has a lot of great devastating combos extremely satisfying to perform and Puff's edgeguard ability is perfect for learning and getting better on… edgeguard ! A really unique character, who comes along with indescriptible feelings when you manage to master Puff and to earn your victories !
