J is Semi-professional Melee Jigglypuff player from Tallahasse, Florida, who is currently ranked 1st on the Tallahassee Melee Power Rankings. J is known for his dainty and aggressive TOing style, as well as his remarkable ability to make a pun out of just about anything. Regrding his gameplay, he does tons of COOL things with Jigglypuff, which, I'll be honest, impresses me as a person who's just writing this about him. He loves talking about powershielding, and he'll often boast humbly about the time he powershield rested Smasher:Hungrybox in friendlies at CEO 2017. Pretty cool guy, imo, you should talk to him at tournaments.
J started out playing the lovely game of Super Smash Bros Brawl back in like 2010 with a good friend of his in Tampa, Florida. They learned it from the ground up, playing against each other all day rolling around and dash attacking. It wasn't until around late 2013, however, that they did anything at all. Around that time, this cool ass dude, RedHalberd, invited him to come play Brawl with him and his compadres, seeing as how J had a plethora of natural talent and a fierce determination to chain grab people with Ice Climbers.
After some mentoring by a decent amount of people in the Tampa community, J became a Brawl god, but then dropped the game for it's superior counterpart, Melee.
In mid 2014, J moved to Tallahassee to attend Florida State University.
J initially played Luigi, but realized that he wasn't good enough to play him because he kept getting shined by Fox and kept dying at like 0 and didn't know how to grab the ledge, so he switched to Puff, since it was kinda similar to Brawl.
His Jigglypuff was so good that no one could believe it.
In this time, he played with legendary players like Chris Morris (G0D), Faxx before he was good, and some other dudes.
Yadayada, for the next 3 or so years, J stopped resting as Jigglypuff and gained a reputaion for himself as the Puff who sucks because he doesn't rest when he's supposed to. He also started sandbagging constantly and was really stupid by stunting his growth by not taking things as seriously as he should have. It's one of his bigger regrets. In this time, he changed his tag to like 20 different things including, but not limited to: FLCL, It's a Wonderful World, Cat Soup, Jlyn, Jmel, Javy, and other various random tags. He also switched mains many times, but of those, the only one that stuck through was Ice Climbers, which netted him a couple wins over the years over some not bad players
Fast forward to NOW
He says got BIG changes in the works. Look forward to 2018 ;)
