I am a newish player looking to pick up falco how difficult is he?
(use a scale of 1 to 10 , 1 is easy and 10 is hard)

probably a fundamentals based character like Mario
Then Falco is a 6 or 7. You have to read di more on up throw/up tilt strings and he has a lot of combos and optimization. But once you get that down, he’s easy. He’s moderately difficult, but he’s no Ken or Icies

Wait, what's difficult about Ken? As someone who played Street Fighter before Smash I don't find him very hard. Is there some difficult tech I'm missing?

As a person who discovered Smash with ssbu I can provide a beginner perspective. I mostly play DK, Wolf and Falco, I would say Falco is the hardest of 3 to master. You need to learn combos, figure out aerial mobility and DI of your opponents. You also need to learn how to play off stage, it is a huge part of Falco game.
I would say Falco 7 compared to Wolf 5 and DK 3. And also Fox 8.
