In the link it goes to the moment that the commentator says that pressing A during either one of the side B grabs
speeds up their animations.

Is this true?
Is there a trade off for doing this?
Why isn't this a thing without pressing A, it's great for DI mix ups?


Also if you watch the whole match, doesn't this show the Falcon match up perfectly, forever losing the neutral game, unless we somehow get him off stage and 0 to death him no problem.

He's right; you can hit A or flick the control stick (like a smash attack) in the direction you throw them to speed up the animation. There is almost no downside to speeding up the animation, so you should do it every time.

when you say 'almost' is there an actual downside to it at all?

The only downside I could think of is if you get a Klaw when you and your opponent are both airborne. If you speed up the animation, you may not be able to get a followup since you have to spend time hitting the ground and regaining your jump. Intentionally performing the slow animation can allow you to touch the ground before or shortly after the animation ends.
