Poilon is a smasher from Paris, France who is famous in France for playing every character in the game at at high level.

History[edit]

Poilon started playing smash when it was released, but only began playing at an advanced level in 2003. He had high scores in 1-Player mode : over 91,900 feats in HRC, under 3'18" in Target Test. His Event mode scores are good as well, especially for the Event 51, which he beat with every characters. For two years, he played a lot in 1-Player mode, then started playing Versus mode more than he did, for he was only a decent player, even though he was already able to play with every character. His level increased dramatically in late 2005, as he came in Paris to enter a Computer Science School : he was able to play against Joanna Dark quite often, and became one of the best French Falco players, beating Joanna Dark during FFT2 to claim fourth place, two monthes after he began training with Joanna Dark.He remained in the top 5 French smashers since this day, but often changed his main. After Falco, he became the best Captain Falcon player in France. He then mained various characters, each one of them for a few months : Fox, Falco, Captain Falcon. He also trained his Jigglypuff, Marth and Sheik as secondaries. He currently uses Fox, Marth, Sheik, Captain Falcon, DK and Falco in singles tournaments. He usually teams with Inf', with both of them playing Jigglypuff.

Poilon is also the main host of the Epita Smash Arena series, which were 2 of the biggest tournaments in Europe - and the second biggest in the world for Epita Smash Arena 2. While the first tournament was a organization success but lacked many foreign attendants, ESA2 managed to gather 231 smashers from more than 15 different countries, but suffered from organization problems. Poilon wants to achieve both an excellent attendance and organization for ESA3.
