    Another thing you should add to the list is practicing your micro without a controller...

    Anytime im waiting for a bus or im in line at the grocery store, i practice things like invul ledgedashes with my hands to keep up the muscle memory...

    It's been working great for me so far

    mahone has a solid entry-level falco and a good enough understanding of the game to do a good bit better in the near future.

    you can tell the "i only ever play jigglypuff" people that actually suck at the game from 50 feet away, and mahone isn't one of them

    Obviously you missed that vid I just posted where I beat him. A single random friendly in my basement is a pretty good indicator of skill.

    Something I've found really helpful...

    Take a bit of a time to just watch the gifs of top/high tier character frames for hitboxes. Don't just look at them, but really watch them. Look at how long it takes the move to come out, think about how close they would have to be to you for it to hit you, and most importantly. as soon as the hitbox retracts, keep repeating to yourself "HIT" or "ATTACK" or something, just to get into the mindset of "this is when I can punish their miss". It does wonders for improving spacing, as you will get more comfortable being closer (just out of range) of the opponent, and have better working knowledge of when you can throw yourself into them.

    thanks mow :)

    mow's pretty good, especially against mid/low tiers from what ive seen... hes VERY good at those mus

    also, hes pretty cool irl, even though i dont like most of his posts online





    Anyway, i just thought of another big thing that i do when praticing... and by do, i mean i tell other players to do it when helping them and never do it cuz im lazy and hate pokemon stadium...

    but anyway... what will really help people who think they can space is to try to land moves at different parts of pokemon stadium...

    the stage has a lot of lines that are symetrical and its tourney legal so its really good for this

    basically, say, "im going to falco dair starting in the middle of the pokeball and end at the end of the red side of the pokeball" (You MUST say this outloud, if you dont, you wont get ANYTHING out of this technique).

    you might be surprised at how little you can control your movement in the air and where you land...

    this is probably because there is a lot of leeway in matches in whether you hit or miss, especially against an opponent of similiar skill level, but the better you get, the more finite the movements become and it becomes important to really control ur character

    you can use: the middle of the pokeball, then the end of the pokeball, then the yellow triangles, then the gray line, then the end of the felt, then the end of the stage, as well as using the platforms (even using the red arrows on the platforms, which i assume indicate the exact middle of it)



    heres a birds-eye view so you can understand what im saying:

    What do you guys think about shine-upB OOS? I saw this in the Leffen vs. PP vid from Smasher's Reunion.

    It's kinda nifty on Yoshi's, cuz assuming everything connects you can land on a platform right after your up-B finishes, which lets you follow up. Though also they can often land and tech on the platform before your Up-B reaches them.

    Ok actually now that I think about it it's kinda totally suboptimal. Whatever. Looks cool.

    brawl is a game that is 90% mental 5% tech skill and 5% being more awesome than melee players. Sorry you guys can't handle it.

    You just gave the skill % breakdown for RPS.

    But at least RPS doesn't have tripping.

    You mean "reflecting" Pikachu's thunder? I thought that was obvious....unless you mean something else, of course...
