When considering playing with Jigglypuff, you have to know that she has a low range in most attacks making almost all attacks useless unless you are very close to the enemy. Her attack is also slow when compared to other warriors in the game. If someone breaks her shield, she will fly off the screen, which is a big deal if you want to win.
Her neutral attack is a combination of two attacks. Both attacks deal 3 damage to the enemy and the second causes the enemy to back slightly. The Jigglypuff will attack or at least try to hit the enemy with its tiny arm in a two-punch combo. You will need to get close to the enemy to hit them but that’s a proper attack to set them up for some quick attacks. The attacks are also safe as it is shielded so you can engage and personalize with your foes with ease.
Her Dash’s attack deals 12 damage to enemies. Enemies hit early in the attack receive more damage than enemies hit by the dash at the end of the attack. Enemies hit by the dash will be launched into the air, giving them more attacks. Attacks deal relative damage when she crashes into enemies with decent speed.
Heavier enemies will be hit back lightly or the enemies hit by the attack later in the attack do not take much damage. The highest amount of damage done and the most hit power is in the early stages of the attack. However, her Dash’s attack is a bit slower when compared to most of the fighters in the game.
