Training Mode Edit

Training Mode was a much requested feature as far back as June of 2018, during the pre-release. In Patch, AI opponents in Local Matches could have their difficulty set to 0, but the premise of a dedicated training room or mode was still in high demand, as it would offer unlimited fight time and variable control to practice combos and SUPERs. In Patch, a proper Training Mode was added, using a prototype stage from the game's early inception.

Infinite Pogo Edit

Infinite Pogo is a game-mode that was introduced in Patch In this mode, 1 player fights against up to 3 CPUs at a time. These CPUs start at very low health, but re-spawn with increased health after being defeated. The goal of this mode is simply to defeat as many CPUs as possible before being losing all health. Completing Infinite Pogo awards the player with coins, with the amount depending on the number of enemies defeated.

Infinite Pogo matches take place on a set number of stages, which all have the same layout and are chosen randomly. Here is a list of the stages that can be chosen:

Local Match

In Local Match, up to 4 players or CPU-controlled fighter can battle. Players can choose characters, set up specific rules such as the number of Lives or the Time, set Stage Hazards or Super on or off, and choose a Stage to fight on. Completing a Local Match awards the player with coins.

Online Match

In Online Match, the player can fight other player in created rooms. It works exactly like Local Match, but an Input Delay can be changed to diminish Lag, and the host can decide certain parameters.

Tournament Rules Edit

Prior to Battle of the Leap Lords, a Tournament match type was introduced, allowing more "brutal" stages to be inaccessible during online matches and test players to vote for a preferred fight location. The mechanic was well accepted on its introduction in Patch
