For when you are on the ground against needles:What would be the best option against shieks needles and bouncing fish?
Run/walk to approach so you can instant-shield out of your movement. Just continue pressing the direction you want to go in and press shield as well and your shield won't start up as late. I usually do that or do empty short hops with an air dodge to get closer.
For when you are in the air against needles:
Know that needles only go in a straight line, so don't float to get in often. Use airdodges or a turnip to cover your approach. To increase the likelihood that you won't get hit, fast fall your jumps as well.
As for bouncing fish, you just have to know your opponent and know how to react to it. When do they use it? Offense or defense? Is it after combos; do they use it to edgeguad; do they use it to recover?The farthest they can go is half the length of an Omega stage and even then it can't hit you.
