    Well its harder to grab bowser in teams because his huge size makes throwing him him to slow most the time and he's got that non sense shield game

    I always imagined that he would be too big for doubles. I feel like it would be way too easy to get in the way of both the enemy and your teammate.

    When I team with someone I always tell them don't worry about me just rush them down and I'll have peach players dash attack through my shield so I can cover their whiff or I'll have a fox shffl through my shield. Size just makes it easier to space sometimes.

    And unless it's the ics who can really attack bowser's shield with a fox ddi ng behind him?

    I think Bowser is better in doubles than in singles. There's too much going on to shut him down, so Bowser is able to slap a few opponents and get more up-b's in.

    Retreating fair and f-tilt are the staple anti-approach options from what I've seen with DJ Nintendo. But d-smash has very high priority, deals good damage by itself, and can lead to combos and tech chases. If you have good reactions, is it worth trying to use d-smash regularly to beat out shuffled approaches like Fox/Falcon's nair?

    I don't think so. The hitbox doesn't come out until frame 14, so you would have to make a read to get most out of it. Stopping approaches as a form of punishing is still available, but it's not reaction-based.
