Welcome to the official Patch Notes thread for v9.0.0 of Ultimate.

This thread is only for cataloguing confirmed changes. For reporting and discussing changes use the patch discussion thread:

https://smashboards.com/threads/v9-0-0-patch-discussion.507840/

If there's anything that we might have missed and have evidence of, you can either post it in the Patch Discussion Thread and tag shrooby shrooby , or PM me with direct reports and evidence of unconfirmed changes (that are not in this post or discussed).

All character numerical values are presented in the base format, without the 1-v-1 multiplier. For convenience, the value with the 1-v-1 multiplier applied is displayed next to it in parentheses (*).

Changes marked in italics are changes that were not mentioned in Nintendo's official patch notes in any capacity.
