NOTE ON YOYO SMASHES

If you hit your opponent while the
smash is charging, you may still hit
them with the smash when it releases.

Also, you cannot charge the yoyo
smashes if the yoyo is hanging too
far over an edge.

Also, the yoyo smashes continue
instantaneously upon the release of
A, whereas all other smashes delay 1
frame before continuing.

--YOYO TRAP GLITCH--
If you hit your opponent with either
the first part or the charging part,
you can cause Ness to leave the
hitbox from the main yoyo swing in
the last place his yoyo was. It's
complicated, and I won't go into it.
Here's WHEN you need to release the
charging yoyo:

Ness's grab is even more depressing when you can see its range...

That gif pretty much confirms that PK Flash is definitely the most bad *** video game visual on the planet, though. I wish I could make it my screen saver or something...

Oops, should've asked for this two months ago but an air PK fire any different from a ground PK Fire other than the angle?

I have some questions, what's auto cancel?, it's something like L-canceling?, another question what's IASA?

So.....does anyone know Ness' frame advantage from DJC aerials? What are his "safest" DJC aerials? For example, if I do something like DJC fair / bair / nair, then I jab after my L cancel, can I be grabbed inbetween my aerial and my jab?

Autocancel is like L cancelling, but automatically, yeah. IASA stands for Interruptable As Soon As, and means that starting on that frame you can do another move to cancel the animation and do something else.

Oh man this reply was really punctual

Not really. Auto cancels are a LOT less frames than a majority of L-cancels and has the same animation as landing normally so it doesn't mean that you never have to input L-cancel with that move, it just means you don't have to during the window that you're able to auto-cancel.

Well I failed to get into the details, but yeah.

Are Ness invincible frames on u-tilt useful in any way? I sometimes use WD utilt as a DJC bair mixup, but that is all.

Interesting note for spacing out his dash attack, the first hit of the dash attack (the one closest to his body) Spikes downward. the second hit (the middle point) does no knockback at low percents and at higher percents knocks away from Ness. The last hit (furthest away from him) launches upward and combos well into fair or nair. If someone wants to get the specific data on this, it would be great.

Something interesting and important to note about PK flash.

That middle hitbox gets much MUCH larger the longer you hold it, at max hold time it's about triple in size.

- Edit -
Also very much worth mentioning; Ness's Nair is in a rare group with Pichu and Pikachu's Nair - It's strong hit lasts 8 FRAMES! All other Nairs only last 2-4 frames on the strong hit before becoming weak.
