I was wondering, what are all the changes for the Icies in Smash Ultimate?

I've seen Nana's hitbox on belay get out prioritized and put Popo in free fall
Up-Air
Ice Shot can be deflected by normal attacks and hit the Icies
Side-B has a ending hit
Down-B only hits in front of them
Skin alts 5-8 have Nana as the leading Climber

Are you referring to only moveset?

Nana isn't able to grab at all
Squall hammer doesn't seem to rise at all; much like Luigi's cyclone
DownSmash doesn't hit on both sides anymore; Main-Climber will swing forward, while Second-Climber will swing backwards (or vice versa). Being solo-climber will only hit in one direction.

I mean any change, looks, animations, sounds. Anything that is different or added from their brawl versions.
No more wobbling or desyncs. No crazy stupid wavedash either.
I've seen a video where the Icies did a small wavedash. Nothing big, but still. I've also seen many cases of desyncs, but it seems mostly accidental.

Wave dashes are for every character. I've pulled them off my self in the demo build (not on icy's of course). I was referring to their super fast wavedash in melee.

You can waveland in this game, but you can't wavedash because there's a delay before you can airdodge after pressing Jump.

I got the game and it was literally the first thing I tried, though not with Ice Climbers.

Just turned on the game.. Admittedly ICs can airdodge quicker after initiating a jump that most characters and go a good distance with their dodge. However, they can't attack during this animation. Think that "wavedash" just looked impressive, but he didn't actually do anything during it (because you can't).

Fair enough, but still. Even if you cant act out of "wavedash" it's still a pretty viable for movement reasons alone.
