i struggle against these characters as well. for ike, i'd recommend playing more defensively and baiting and punishing his attacks. they hit hard and outrange you, but he's very slow. punish him hard when he misses an attack or hits your shield.
as for rob, i'd also appreciate advice for beating him because i'm not sure myself lol. i haven't come across as many rob players compared to all the ikes online (but when i do find a rob, they usually destroy me)

I recently erased all of my rob footage but he is easily gimpable. Online Ike is a pain in the butt because it's hard to parry, otherwise just wait till they overextend themselves and punish that. Attacks that send him more horizontal are more damaging to his recovery options. Otherwise for your average run of the mill players, just be patient in neutral.

I know that this thread is fairly old, but an easy way to punish Ike's up special is to juke it with teleport, then attack when you come out for an easy 16% damage. It takes some practice, but once you get the hang of it you will find yourself punishing most fighters with teleport.
