Was Pichu buffed or nerfed in Ultimate? Just curious, cause I saw 2 guys in one of the recent smash tournaments, but I thought it was inconclusive.
So, what your guys opinion on him?

He seems quite a bit better, possibly due to having a lot of Pikachu's tools, and Pika being quite strong in this game. He's also received very direct buffs to his self-damage mechanic, as he hurts himself a lot less now, and its not tECHNICALLY 100% bad since you could theoretically use it to gain rage or get out of confirm percents.
His jab feels worse and his up-b can't be lagless anymore, those are the most major nerfs I've noticed.
