you gotta think about it at high levels of play though, not saying your bad, but let me link some of the best pikas fighting the best marthsKind of disagree
I can easily raep a skilled marth without a ton of trouble
Skilled Mewtwo users however *shudders*
aaaaahhh that match...B-Ryan.... *shudders and sits in a corner rocking back and forth*http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQ1l36lPDYc&feature=related
****s painfull to watch, just some dudes abusing their range, and taking advantage of pika's lack of range, at higher level play, spacing is so important, marth just completely outspaces pika.
also, chad wtf, I could not find a match of you vs Iori's Mu2
uh just wanted to comment a bit on this (its not the reason i was in this thread, but I can't see pichu and not comment on it ), but most of you probably don't care since you're never going to play this matchup.... also sorry if somebody else (namely ICG) posted something similar, I didn't read the whole thread :\N64 said:Pichu: One of the few characters Pika has a range advantage on, so take advantage of it. He's light, so he's nice usmash bait. Also, your jolts are spammable, his aren't. Try to stay close enough to hit him with usmash/tilts, but not quite close enough for his usmash, because his usmash->thunder can still kill you at mid-high percents. When recovering against him, try to quick attack over him if he's waiting by the edge(to avoid his fsmash), and sweetspot if you can get to the edge before him. If you do get hit by his fsmash, try to smash DI away and up out of it.
Would it be possible for you to make an updated match-up thing? Because, you know I'm relatively new, but I'm not new to Pika. I'd love to see an updated one if you have the time!This list is ollllld. Probably should be removed from stickies. These days I think marth/pika is pretty even, perhaps even slight advantage pika yeah.
Thank you very much! I'll look into it and forward to your videos should they come out! :DRecently Chad and I did a 3ish hour cast on Pikachu as a sort of introduction-to-the-character thing. You can find it here.
Most of the video is spent going through pikachu's moveset and getting into what each of his moves are good for. We touch a little bit on "This is good against fastfallers because it can lead into..." and stuff like that, so it's a little bit of what you're requesting. What you specifically mentioned (matchup video guides) is something I actually thought about recently and, if I can convince Chad and we can think of a reasonable way to do it, might be doable. We'll see.
Until then you can check out the matchup sections of my guide, if you haven't already. http://smashboards.com/threads/pikachu-guide-2011.312544/
It's incomplete, but I've started working on it again and will probably help a bit.
