Historically, counter moves haven’t functioned properly in Smash Ultimate’s amiibo AI. You can teach your amiibo to use the counter, but it will use it randomly and almost never use it in a predictive manner – which is the exact intended purpose of counter moves. So we’ve never had to worry about counter moves having an impact on the amiibo meta.
However, I’ve been hearing scattered reports that some amiibo can now use their counters with some level of success. Most of these reports are involving either Palutena or Incineroar, so I’ll have to lab them out on my own time.
