Final Smash Challenge Done Easy

Some of the challenges that are in the game are like getting a "Final Smash" with a specific character... However this can sometimes be difficult as smash balls do not come around that often... A VERY SIMPLE WAY to BIPASS this necessity is to select that character and use it in training. Here, on the bottom screen, you can spawn a smash ball, use it, and once you exit, the objective will be complete...
I hope this helps you out and remember to thumbs up this cheat...
And Remember To:
Have a SMASHING Good Time...

What Does The RACOON LEAF Do????

Once thought to be a simple decoration by some, I have figured out that the raccoon leaf, can be used to FLOAT (cannot fly like in NSMB2 but it can stay airborne and walk side to side...) once you jump high enough, by pressing a certain button, you can stay at that height for a short time while also being able to move across horizontally. This can also be useful if you find that your ' up + B ' can get you high enough but you're too far over from the edge...
Hope this Helps and Happy Smashing Everyone...
