Neither god tier nor top tier

He’s a decent character but his recovery is still exploitable and he’s obnoxiously slow. He’s dangerous but not top tier

I'm an atheist, so I don't believe in god tiers. Anyway, Incineroar is a hard hitter and has decent combo set-ups. His recovery is sub-par, which is why you might expect your opponent to try recovering high. If not, expect the good old side special to up special. If you succeed in taking advantage of that, Incineroar will be Incinomore.

Definitely not.
The good thing is that the 20% distance buff to his up+b has made it like 70% harder to gimp him.
weird math, yes, but u get the point. It makes him a lot more consistent.
This coupled with the fact that Uthrow can kill now, makes him even more consistent.

The only thing that keeps him from being really good now, is his speed.

His upthrow kills so early now too, before i had ppl living longer because i got the grab in the middle of the stage and bthrow did not kill there, but upthrow is so good now, same for upsmash u can challenge a lot of aerials with that, but i agree he is still not even top tier he can get camped and spaced real easily.
