Training With Whis

After a fight with the God of Destruction Beerus, Goku set time aside for his family, as his son Gohan was also now becoming a father. However, it did not take long for new adventures to arise. He learned that Vegeta had been training in Planet Beerus with Whis, the God's personal trainer who had previously taken the sleeping being from their fight with Goku. Excited to train with Whis and alongside Vegeta, he eventually convinces Whis to let him join them.

There Goku remarks on how much Vegeta's power had grown in only six months of training. The two go on to spar and perform tasks for Whis for the sake of training. The master was not impressed with their progress and gave them even harder tasks and regimes to adhere to. At some point, Beerus wakes up from his sleep and saw the two. He suggests Whis sends both to the inside of Whis Staff, which worked much like a Hyperbolic Time Chamber but infused with Godly Ki.

Golden Frieza

Eventually, after coming out of the Staff, Whis informs them of a message sent by Bulma. Frieza had come back. Quickly Goku and Vegeta go back to Earth to confront this resurrected Frieza. At first, Goku and Frieza both hold back their power. But after a small distraction of Vegeta fighting Goku, the two unleash their true power. Frieza is intrigued by Goku's form, as he explained. After unlocking Super Saiyan, God Goku elevated that form to Super Saiyan, creating an even more powerful fighting form, what would come to be known as Super Saiyan Blue or Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

Gameplay

Pors & Cons

Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (SSGSS) Goku or Super Saiyan Blue Goku is similar to his plain Super Saiyan form. Still, much of his neutral game is brought to a new power level with stronger neutral options, versatile combos, and strong super, on top of one of the best pressure potential of the game with his command grab and light attacks. But he does give up some good things for it. Starting with his limited control at full screen, demanding much more conscious distancing
