    Can you be more specific with the troubles you're having?

    How to approach link with Yoshi?

    My initial advice is to change your mindset around "approaching". Approaching doesn't have to be done in one move, or all at once. Your first goal should be to close distance so that it becomes unsafe for Link to use projectiles. Then, once he starts using them, you're close enough to finish...

    There's really only posts about playing AGAINST Yoshi around here

    A lot of it has to do with inertia -- Yoshi has been "weird" since early Smash games, mainly due to his weird Double Jump, lack of a recovery special, and inability to jump Out of Shield. Because of this, Yoshi doesn't play very similarly to...well, anyone. So people don't even play as him for...

    There's really only posts about playing AGAINST Yoshi around here

    Such is the tragedy of esports. The kind of cult following is a major reason why I feel like a lot of the competition has stagnated -- people aren't really trying to think or learn on their own. Just gotta parrot the talking-heads to fall in line with the community. It was a lot better when...

    There's really only posts about playing AGAINST Yoshi around here

    Ahhh, this is one of the craziest things that's happened to Smash. As it's grown and made top players into celebrities, nobody really dares think on their own or challenge what top players say, even if that top player isn't an expert on said topic. Drives me nuts. I double-checked mod...

    There's really only posts about playing AGAINST Yoshi around here

    What's happened is that Smashboards is, by and large, a place for entry-to-mid level players to hunt for pieces of information to help improve their game. Since Yoshi as a character has always had a small player base, there are few Yoshis around to drive discussion or discovery. Since the few...

    How do you guys deal with strong disjoints?

    Thank you Optihus. I'm going to leave the direct link to Optihus's reply here and lock the thread. https://smashboards.com/threads/read-before-posting-yoshi-question-and-answer-thread.466265/#post-23039676

    Q&A READ BEFORE POSTING -- Yoshi Question and Answer Thread

    It's hard to answer this question without being able to see you play. For being aggro/defense, you need to judge based on the match up and based on playstyle. Since you're probably doing random matchmaking online, you should think about the opponent's character and their options, and decide your...

    Where's my elite?!?!

    Yeah, we're gonna try to do better. Questions should be directed to the Question and Answer Thread. You should try to consider the way you carry yourself online better. This doesn't appear to be a great way to get people to answer your question.

    Q&A READ BEFORE POSTING -- Yoshi Question and Answer Thread

    Adding on to Optihus, grabs should mainly be used as pure mixups to mess with your opponents head so they stop feeling safe in shield too. In general our grab game is weak, but remember that grabs beat shields, so it's worth keeping in mind. Grabs also come out a few frames faster than Egg Lay...

    Crafting the Ultimate Lifeform - Yoshi's MU Chart

    Sounds fine to me -- we can cross that bridge if we come across it.

    Q&A READ BEFORE POSTING -- Yoshi Question and Answer Thread

    I'm pretty sure small stages are superior since they prevent Palutena from getting breathing room. If it works at all like in previous Smash games, you want to tap Down to jab cancel. After you tap down you should be free to do whatever.

    I'm enjoying my rest during holiday break. I don't usually get much sleep day to day when school is going on. =/ Still grinding all the single player content in Ultimate too. There's so much left~ |:ultmario:|:ultluigi:|:ultmarth:|d|e|f|g|h|i|j|k|l|m|n :ultyoshi:|a|b|c a|b|c

    Crafting the Ultimate Lifeform - Yoshi's MU Chart

    Slush, since you proposed not having separate match up threads, are you expecting people to only discuss one MU at a time in this thread? I fear that linking specific posts won't work if there are multiple discussions happening here simultaneously. Also, let this be clear. This thread is not...

    Short hop mechanics chat

    No problem, it's just a slight mechanical difference compared to games earlier in the series. It does make it slightly harder to use full hop attacks in combos though.
