    Pikachu vs Defensive Falcon

    At some ranges falcon can still dash grab pikachu's crouches I dislike this matchup a lot because it feels like falcon punishes me for pressing buttons, but if I try to be more reactive, I just get dash grabbed. I feel like it is good to wait it out at the ledge because he needs the boost from...

    Important Hyrule Warrior - The Sheik Matchup Database

    If a kirby just sits in place and ducks, I like to dance around his range, but not commit to anything, in a way that I can't be punished, at a range where he can't just react to what I throw at him, then he starts to stop ducking, maybe shield, maybe roll or spot dodge Like, the only thing you...

    To get rising needle combos, I personally hit X with my pointer finger and B with my thumb, never practiced it, never messed it up Just find a method you are comfortable with, I was already comfortable with this method from maining pikachu for years in brawl and had to full hop AC jolt a lot...

    Pikachu - Balance Patch - Version 1.1.1 Buffs/Nerfs

    Now we just need testing on one small thing Pikachu can jab near the ledge and cover ledge jump, normal getup (if they can't roll out without getting hit), and sometimes getup attack This was tech that I used to use but people kept occasionally being able to just Roll out of the pressure, so I...

    Pikachu - Balance Patch - Version 1.1.1 Buffs/Nerfs

    This also means quick attack is safer too So if there were any characters that could barely punish quick attack... RIP?

    @Eonn I wrote a reply on the previous page and decided to tag you in it Wasn't sure if it would notify that but it will give you some info relating to that Pikachu Fair is (From my experience) Never safe on shield, but they do not get get a guaranteed punish They have to read where you land in...

    Q&A Pikachu Q&A Thread (Ask a Quick Question, Get a Quick Answer)

    We do not have frame advantage on any moves. We do have a lot of moves that usually cannot be punished Oos though without a read Fair, Dair, and Nair are good examples of this @Eonn ESAM is not putting himself in situations where he cannot be punished, ESAM is mixing up his spacing and timing...

    Q&A Pikachu Q&A Thread (Ask a Quick Question, Get a Quick Answer)

    Hitstun only affects things at really high percents and on moves like Dtilt Hitstun basically is only a thing that matters if they have time to jump out or air dodge out even. At the practical percents for the aerials, I don't think I ever have problems with my opponent jumping out With Fthrow...

    Q&A Pikachu Q&A Thread (Ask a Quick Question, Get a Quick Answer)

    I have those percents grinded, its on my phone though RIP Also you wouldn't need to test different DI, its about knockback ALSO the knockdown setups are all weight dependent, so fall speed, size, ect do not matter Maybe I will share it if I stop being lazy, honestly this knowledge hasn't...

    Bair -> stage spike is not a gimmick. Here is a deadly mixup

    Pop up? Care to elaborate? Its not character dependent? Its an engine mixup and all characters use this part of the engine the same way? I am kinda confused, maybe I will understand with some explanation, if so I will look into it and maybe even update the thread

    Too late lmfao, got killed by that in a grand finals set

    Bair -> stage spike is not a gimmick. Here is a deadly mixup

    It would require godlike reaction time on the tech You have 2 options and have to input 2 completely different options on reaction in a split second Plus we are going to try to jump up after this, that means we would get the footstool if they do not react right away with their recovery option...
