If you’re looking to gear up for a fight against a fighter with a particular strength, you can use your Evolution Points to catch up your counters to that style.

For instance if you’re going against a jiu-jitsu black belt, it’s probably worthwhile to bump up your submission defense. The same can be said for strikers and wrestlers.

Apart from these strategies, Evolution Points can be used to level up your strengths so that they’ll be just as valuable for any given opponent.

Be careful though, as these skills will already naturally level up from use and become expensive quick.
