Introduction

Weavile is a character that's all about speed and momentum. Having a dominant walk speed as well as mobility options both on the ground and in the air allows Weavile to approach and dance around the opponent with ease. Signature moves such as Agility giving projectile invincibility makes zoners re-evaluate their gameplan. And Icicle Crash which can be used for air stall, as an angled double jump, or something to chuck at the opponent while also creating space. Weavile's got a ton of counter pierces. Many leaving Weavile in an advantageous state when blocked, giving the character a solid oki game. Adding onto all of this with instances such as jab pressure and an active Burst Mode, Weavile really tests the opponent's defense.

In comparison though to those that have similar health, Weavile lacks long-ranged options. There's always Icicle Crash, but 9 chip damage won't be able to cut it. This forces Weavile to get up close to be able to deal relevant damage. This becomes more of problem when Weavile is faced against the bulkier side of the cast that can withstand multiple exchanges, and be able to balance it all out with one correct play. With the use of knockback and spacing, the opponent never has to worry about retaliation because of the short range Weavile's normals have.

To be able to excel with Weavile, one must fully commit to the tools the character has to offer. Hesitation leads to "Should've, Would've, Could've" thoughts. With the potential to maneuver around Counter Attacks and Agility through Burst Attacks, Its alot about having confident play and keeping up with the pace Weavile brings.
