That doesn't really change that Incineroar can mix up his recovery better tbh.

I think this is not gonna be very important though because incineroar players and the meta that follows him will be involved around only staying on the ground

SideB is a lot better than upB at recovering, that one has decent distance.

Still, once you hit offstage, you are usually dead if the enemy goes for a gimp. This will be an important factor in Incineroar's tier placement. Don't delude yourselves that "recovery doesn't matter", because it always has and still does. Still, you can work to mitigate it by learning the "safe" ranges to airdodging and optimal positions for recovery mixup.

At least it's better than Chrom's.

And Ganon. And Little Mac... yes it's still better.

Command grab. Non free fall UpB. Those tools give you a lot more mix up options. Plus super armor. It's less gimpable than little mac by far.

Mac's distance on his recovery isnt really bad anymore. His understage recovery is very slightly worse than ZSS(atleast compared to Smash 4 ZSS), but nobody is going to say ZSS has a bad recovery.
