    Smash 4 vs Ultimate, which Kirby do you think is better?

    The initial posts were from before Kirby was buffed in a patch.

    What is Jiggly's up throw good for?

    Hey, that's something! I was hoping for an answer like this instead of just "lol nope, worthless throw". Thanks!

    What is Jiggly's up throw good for?

    The move has too much base knockback to set up a tech chase at low percents.

    What is Jiggly's up throw good for?

    I'm curious if any Jigglypuff players out there can come up with an actual use for her up throw. I've been able to find applications for every throw in the game no matter how niche with the sole exception of Jigglypuff's up throw. I've spent more time than I care to admit testing it and it's...

    Where's his tail?

    I taught him to jump out of his tail.

    Squirtle Throw Combos?

    Attention, all Squirtle players. I've been messing around with PT lately and I like her a lot, but I'm having trouble figuring out which throw combos are the most optimal whenever I land the grab with Squirtle at low percents. As far as I know, there are four options for me to choose from, which...

    Why Can't You Use a Smash Attack After a Jab?

    Unfortunately, none of Pit's moves can set up for jab locks at kill percents, but back air can set up starting at around 20% assuming neutral DI, and landing with the final hit of forward air will also work starting at around 36% (when the final hit connects, not from the start of the move)...

    Want to start playing Ultimate. Last time I played competitively was Brawl in 2011.

    Since the first half of that question has already been answered, I'll answer the second half. The community is thriving and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Nintendo is actively adding balance patches as well as new DLC and the game is extremely popular on both Twitch and YouTube...

    Damn it, every time I try to edit a comment, I accidentally hit reply instead. -_- Sorry, please ignore this comment. Really wish there was a "delete comment" option.

    Want to start playing Ultimate. Last time I played competitively was Brawl in 2011.

    I think he means "Advanced Techniques" since he's talking about competitive play.

    Want to start playing Ultimate. Last time I played competitively was Brawl in 2011.

    Smash 4 had perfect pivots, but those aren't in Ultimate. If I remember correctly, the only mechanics returning from Smash 4 are rage, ledge trumping, and 2-framing. Rage is a passive ability all characters have that gradually boosts the knockback of their moves as their percent rises. Rage...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    I like to think of a new Smash patch as a storm in the ocean that causes waves throwing characters every which way. Mid tiers fall down to low due to power creep, low tier rise up to mid due to buffs, top tiers drop off a bit due to nerfs (wasn't the case this patch, but it's still a common...

    Complete Samus/Dark Samus Up Smash Comparison

    Edit #1: Added Terry. He seems to be very consistent across both Samuses while standing.

    Complete Samus/Dark Samus Up Smash Comparison

    People often say that the hitboxes on Dark Samus's up smash are lower than Samus's, allowing the former to hit grounded opponents more consistently. Despite this, there was no information available on which characters get hit and which don't, so I decided to make a comprehensive comparison for...

    Why Can't You Use a Smash Attack After a Jab?

    Thank you, that actually works! It's a bit difficult to time a forward smash fast enough for it to be true since I have tilt stick on, but down smash shouldn't be an issue anymore.
