Frame research: Yoshi's Parry

You're right I probably do press shield a frame before I jump. So what if I shield 2 frames before I'm hit and jump 1 frame before I'm hit?

Regardless of what you may think you are pressing when you do it, you are either doing precisely what I said or playing a different game. Simple as that.
OMG I love you.

Anyway, am I correct in assuming that giving Yoshi the ability to JC out of his shield at any time, with his invinicibility as is, would make for stupidly easy parries?

I can't help but think that Yoshi's parry will not be nearly as useful in Melee as it is in 64. His DJC is a lot slower, it will be hard to punished spaced moves like Marth's or Ganon's Fair, if they shield first Yoshi cannot shield break like he can in 64, and if Yoshi does get a hit in he can't exactly combo like he can in 64 lol.
