Introduction

Protecting a Chespin on his shoulder, Chesnaught believes “The best defense is a good offense”. Chesnaught can do a great job controlling the midrange with long normals while also doing an excellent job of waiting an opponent out, forcing your opponent to make mistakes and getting hard punishes off them using his signature move Bullet Seed (5B) which can help him extend his combos with no meter, or go in while you are super plus on your opponents block.

Chesnaught is a character who can play until timeout. With his high health and endurance. On top of that he has Guard Berry (24B) which adds armor to the startup of his forward advancing moves and restores his health by 11%, An invincible charge input DP and an air parry. Using these tools effectively makes Chesnaught a defensive powerhouse.

Chesnaught's main drawback is his speed and sluggish buttons, he has a slow predictable jump, an 8-frame startup on his 5A, and cannot effectively chase down opponents who are running away or zoning without spending resources.

If you want a weird bulky May/Ramlethal/Happy Chaos fusion then this is the character for you. Patient play, optimization, and effective risk assessment will be sure to land you in the Hall of Fame. Good luck, dynamic duo!!


Playstyle
PKMNCC Chesnaught NavboxIcon.png Chesnaught is a walking tank with oppressive midrange, with berry buffs that can quickly change the pace of battle.
Pick if you like Avoid if you dislike
  • Bulky: Chesnaught has the highest endurance value in the game & close to the highest health value which he can recharge with 24B. Chesnaught can afford to sacrifice his health as a means to win the round.
  • Space Control: The creation of thorns, a fast moving projectile, and large buttons like 3A, 6A, and 2B cover ranges the opponent may have difficulty challenging from.
  • Sluggish Movement: With a lumbering walkspeed, underwhelming forward dash, and larger amount of prejump frames compared to the rest of the cast, it can be difficult for Chesnaught to outmaneuver their opponent.
  • Sluggish Buttons: Chesnaughts fastest button (5A) has a whopping 8f startup, leading to him often time being stuck in the corner, landing parries is essential.

Chespin spits out seeds.

  • Allows for gapless pressure off of any normal, while easily confirming off any hit cancelled into it
  • Also allows for significant extensions when cancelled from 6B

  • On hit, you can confirm to a 3A to build meter.

Chesnaught charges forward with his shield and uppercuts the opponent.

  • Chesnaught travels nearly fullscreen, great option when reacting to projectiles
  • Allows enough time to juggle after this move hits at most heights when the final hit connects late, mainly into 6A or 5B
  • Scaling kicks in enough here to reduce the damage of the last hit to 5, so raw Shield Smash is effectively an 8 damage move, not a 9 damage one.
