Definitely improved. He's the lightest character in the game, but has the mobility and size to make up for it. It feels really satisfying to zip around your enemies when they can't do anything about it. However, I think it's largely decided that Pikachu, for now, is just the better pick.

Very inconsistent kill options, and dying early is made worse by damaging yourself. There is potential in the character, but not nearly enough for high tier.

Honestly, after talking to a few people who mained Pika in Smash 4, I found that a few players are switching to Pichu because he feels the closest to how Pika was in brawl and 4. Pikachu's new Nair is really messing with me. Might just be me though...

He feels a lot like smash 4 pikachu did, more so than ultimate pikachu does. This also might just be me but he feels really heavy, not as in living long because he dies at like 50 to a strong attack but in fall speed, even without fast falling it feels like you land really quick

Apparently, he has the same fall speed he had in Melee (1.9) which means that instead of an average fall speed, he has the 5th fastest fall speed.
