Purple Pimp Playstyle
There are two primary routes you can go with the purple pimp’s set-up phase. Your ultimate goal is to fill the stage with your goop from your beakers either way, but the way you go about there varies. Firstly, you can simply make use of your whores to heal en mass to survive the set-up. Alternatively, you can have your whores distract the foe while you spread your goop about. Note that you can transition between the two phases of your game with the power of your brofist – if foes are breathing down your neck as you heal with the whores, you can throw out the brofist counter to knock them into prone.
Once the goop’s out in the open, you pretty much have to swap to having the whores go for the foe no matter what. The pimp has a good prone abuse game, and his downward aimed moves that deal knockback to foes without knocking them out of prone/put them into prone will cause them to slide very quickly along the goop. This generally won’t kill, though, unless you get a whores on top of them to prevent a grab-escape. While this will heal the foe, if you have enough whores on top of the prone foe you can still kill them at incredibly low percentages. Matches with the purple pimp go by incredibly quickly, as once the purple pimp has lost his whores he struggles significantly with his second stock. Because of this, it is encouraged for the purple pimp to attempt outright suicide KOs on the foe once they slide off-stage with the whores to ensure that they never make it back to terra firma. The Purple Pimp has a suicide KO dair and several other generally good gimping aerials, and this playstyle is further encouraged by his lack of a recovery move.
One of your best methods of coating the stage in goop rather than breaking it beaker by beaker is to simply cover a ***** in goop, then knock her into prone and slide her along the stage. While a fast set-up, if you attempt to cover the whole stage by sending two of your three whores to either side of you, you’ll be left with little to distract the foe or healing for yourself.
