Anytime you pick up a new fighting game, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by whoever the game’s resident rush-down monster is. In Pokkén Tournament DX, Weavile easily fits that role with his fast jabs, high mobility, and Counter-to-Taunt parry options.
But there’s a lot of gaps and big commitments common in both low and high level Weavile play. Once you understand how some of Weavile’s options work, Weavile will seem a lot less terrifying: you can reduce many of his more complex tools down to 50/50s, or outright nullify them completely depending upon the character you’re playing as.
