I've got a friend who is at the same exact level as me in Sm4sh which makes this whole game just even better, but he recently learned this sick technique to spam fireballs for map pressure, he likes to fireball, then shorthop and move towards me, fireball, then fireball back on the ground again, until i'm at the ledge where he has a very strong advantage.

I don't know how to get in and punish him, what should I do to punish him as Shiek?

"How to beat you jerks as Shiek?" :p

Joking aside, some projectiles go through each other (such as Megaman's Forward Smash passing through a few projectiles like Samus's B shot) and I'm fairly certain Shiek's needles can get through the fireballs. You also have a much longer range. If he wants to camp out on half the stage, you could force an approach in that way, although it isn't the most "cool" thing to do.

A character struggling to approach Luigi? This is a new one.

Anyways, needles are great. Also Sheik is way faster movement wise, one whiffed move from Luigi [even a single shielded fireball] and Sheik will be right next to him.

Fireballs don't have much range, and if he's alternating the height, you can just jump over the low one, crawl under the high one.

Don't know if I'm late with my response but, when I played a Shiek she was literally every where. I don't she has any problems approaching Luigi, however, I do believe she cannot be careless when she does approach because of our combos. The fireballs can zone her out a little but, she is fast enough in the air and on the ground for that to not really be too much of a problem. Just don't be careless and approaching should be fine since Luigi really can't play the neutral game that long anyways.
