    So in my constant crusade to improve Ness overall, I got myself down to work and compiled a Ness frame data thread, much like a bunch of others have. It is very similar to the actual Melee Ness' frame data, however as there are some unique or changed moves, I felt it necessary to create a new one, for P:M specifically.


    How to read this thread:
    Total: Total amount of frames the animation takes. (additional information will be noted)

    Hit/Grab: On which frames the attack hits/Grabs an opponent.

    Damage: How much damage the Hitbox deals. (additional information will be noted, if different hitboxes have different stats, this will also be indicated)

    Shield Damage: How much damage the hitbox deals. Base shield damage is 0. Only listed if relevant.

    BKB/KBG: Base knockback and knockback growth. High BKB moves are strong at any %, high KBG moves get strong quickly.

    WDSK: Weight dependent set knockback. Only listed if relevant.

    Angle: The base direction the indicated hitbox sends the opponent. Measured starting on the right (90 degrees is straight up, 180 is behind Ness)

    Hitlag/SDI modifier: Values that influence how long your characters are in hitlag and how effective the opponent's SDI will be. Only listed if relevant.

    Air/Ground: Some attacks have hitboxes that can only hit aerial/grounded opponents. These will be listed separately.

    IASA: Interrupt-able As Soon As, basically which frame you can cancel the attacks with another action. This is shown either by Ness shielding or airdodging, depending on the action.

    AC: Auto cancel frames: Landing after these frames will result in soft landing (4 frames)

    Landing Lag: The amount of frames of "down time" that results in landing while doing an aerial. This can be halved by L-Cancelling.

    Intangible: Frames during which the character is invulnerable to attacks.

    Interpolation: Brawl draws dynamic hitboxes by calculating where the hitbox was the previous frame, where the hitbox is the current frame and what the area between is. The hitbox "stretches" within these three fields, making moves that look like they have large blind spots actually cover large areas. The easiest way to see this is the usmash gif.

    Shield stun: how many frames of stun the opponent suffers from blocking this attack, this occurs after hitlag, and is based on the damage of a move (which means it is effected by damage staling)

    Advantage: The amount of frames between when your opponent is out of shield stun, and when Ness can act. Positive numbers means Ness can act while the opponent is still in shield stun, while negative numbers means the opponent has advantage. Remember that when an opponent is punishing you out of shield, they have grab (7 frames) or jump->move which can have 7+ frames of startup. Exceptions exist (such as Bowser's up-b).

    Aerials will have a separate section for advantage with and without l-cancel. All others will be the difference between the last frame of the opponents shieldstun and the last frame of endlag on the given move assuming the first frame of the last hitbox hits. It also assumes that Ness will land the frame after hitting the aerial, for maximum advantage.

    Now, without further ado, here is what I have.

    Hitlag/SDI multiplier: 0.5/1
    Absorbs: 9-17 (extended by holding)
    At any point after frame 10 is cancel-able by jump or double jump (depending on your position)
    After absorbing a projectile, Ness suffers 10 frames of lag, then goes back into the looping "wait" animation.
    If Ness absorbs a projectile while in absorb lag (10 frames), he has the option to cancel the absorb lag from the second projectile into magnet drop (10 frames?)
    Due to the fact absorbing restarts the "wait" animation, the initial hitbox is done again (after the 10 frames lag)
    Heals 1.5 times projectile damage (?)
    Shield Stun: 3 (plus 2 additional frames of hitlag on the opponent)

    Hitlag/SDI modifier: 0.5/1
    Projectile is created on frame 20
    The head of the projectile does 8% damage, the tail does 1% and hits rapidly with little knock back.
    Ness then goes into a looping animation (11 frames) for as long as the projectile is alive.
    The projectile has a lifetime of 120 frames or 2 seconds, or until it hits a surface/character.
    After the projectile dissapears, Ness continues the looping animation for another 24 frames before going into end lag.
    The true endlag of the move is 29 frames long (both grounded and aerial).
    In the air, Ness still goes through 24 frames of the loop before going into aerial end lag.
    Ness can grab ledges during the aerial end lag.
    The aerial end lag cancels upon landing.

    Earliest release is frame 30
    Damage: 6-22% depending on charge
    Hitbox size scales with charge (from roughly the size of Ness at min charge to the width of a Battle Field platform at max)
    Ness then goes into a looping animation (8 frames) until the B button is released, the projectile hits a surface or it reaches maximum charge.
    Upon releasing B or reaching max charge, the projectile detonates after a short delay (8 frames) and Ness goes into a release animation (40 frames for both grounded and aerial)
    Upon striking a surface, the projectile disappears after a short while and Ness goes into a regular ending (40 frames for both grounded and aerial)
    Minimum charge time is 12 frames.
    Maximum charge time is 70 frames.

    Edit (Jan 30th): Corrected aerials, added aerials (Thanks StandardToaster)
    Edit (May 13th): Added Magnet and PKT2.
    Edit (September 19th): Updated to 2.6b. Added notes on intangibility on u-tilt and u-smash. Added Yo-yo's bone on u-smash and d-smash. Added note on new Magnet cancel.
    Edit (February 26th 2014): Fixed bug in some animations where a new hitbox wouldn't replace the old one (BB bug, affected nair, bair, dair and PKT2). Also fixed animation lengths, accounting for the one extra frame BB adds to all animations. Hopefully Fixed PKT2 frame data, odd due to frame speed modifiers.
    Edit (March 7th 2014): added shield stun and advantage values. They may not be 100% accurate, but they should not be more than one frame off.
    Edit (May 20th 2014): Added ledge jump invincibility data, added SH/FH length (FF data to come), added note on resetting magnet hitbox after absorption.
    Edit (July 16th 2014): More touch ups added, projectiles data added and hitboxes soon to come.
    Edit (November 15th 2014): Massive update to 3.5 using in game debug mode to accurately show hitboxes. uair and dash attack updated to 3.5, information updated to 3.5, projectile hitboxes added. Now shows the two different kinds of d-tilt IASA. Now shows all moves' IASA through shielding/airdodge. Interpolation added to all attacks.
    Edit (July 16th 2015): Updated to 3.6 data.
    Edit (September 3rd 2015): Added knockback stats, angle, multipliers and shield damage to all normals, and some specials. Credits to @Boiko for compiling the data.

    Yep, I said in the post its open for reference/use where ever. Just put in a note to me or something, I'm not trying to be selfish, but I still want myself to become a little more known for being dedicated to Ness lol.

    Thanks btw, any recommendations on what to improve? Only things I really have in mind are making the projectile's data through Dolphin (or otherwise if someone knows of a way to), and the landing lag (Waiting on Toaster, but no rush :) )

    Thanks, didn't know how to tell AC windows in BB, and I didn't realize that it displayed hitboxes on aerials a frame late.

    Updated to correct the data, wish there was another way lol.

    I don't know why BBox displayed the aerials incorrectly. Your fair data on hit frame was correct, though.

    Hey, any chance you can get the frame data on Ness' Jump cancled grab? I am never sure if his running grab has more frames for grabbing than the jump cancelled one.

    JC grab isn't a thing itself. It is literally cancelling the jumpsquat frames into a standing grab. If you want to look at the differences look at Ness' standing grab compared to his dash grab. If you want to be really picky, add 1-4 frames to his standing grab, as you have 4 frames to cancel his jump into grab.

    I'm hearing from the tier list thread that your running grab frames are off. Does the dash grab really come out at 7-8 or is it closer to 6-7. Oracle (1wingedangel) is arguing its the fastest dash grab in the game.

    No, I am sure, from both looking at the frames, and the data itself, that his dash grab is 7-8. He must be mistaken between Ness' dash and pivot grabs (notice the pivot is 6-7).

    His dash grab is his slowest grab overall in fact, in terms of when it grabs and its overall frame count. It is 30% longer range than standing grab, but 33% shorter than pivot (pivot is almost twice as long as standing lol)

    edit: it seems it still is one of the quickest in the game, but its false saying its 6-7

    So...you guys mostly dash grab. Not JC grab? I heard you say, Gmaster, that you JC grab when chain throwing.

    Yep, I JC when chain grabbing, or when getting regrabs (which is sorta the same thing). Its the same thing as D3 doing SCG (skid cancel grabs) rather than dash, you get more throws off in the same distance due to the fact you don't slide after grabbing the opponent. The slide combined with the opponents DI makes it easier for them to escape offstage or onto platforms.

    Otherwise, I JC when I'm pretty sure I'll get them regardless of positioning. If I do miss, there is less of a window for them to punish me.

    Either way, all of Ness' grabs are good, his lack of range is compensated by the precision Ness takes. You should be used to your range, so its not a big deal.

    Updated with PKT2 and magnet+loop.

    ST, could you check to see if everything is accurate? These were really weird to do.

    UPDATED TO 2.6b
    Added notes for intangibility on u-tilt and u-smash
    Added yo-yo's bones to u-smash and d-smash, this doesn't show the hitbox still, but it shows where the yo-yo will be at a given time in the smash (assuming it is not obstructed by platforms or similar)
    Added note on magnet's new cancel

    Need confirmation on magnet drop animation and absorb lag animation. BrawlBox says they are both 20 still, but this shouldn't be correct in 2.6b
    Need confirmation on how many hits u-smash and d-smash are capable of while charging.

    Whoa! Awesome! Up smash down smash gifs! How'd you manage that? Any way we could get PK fire and thunder hitboxes too?

    I don't know for sure (I'd need confirmation on this) but I'm fairly sure that the hitboxes stay out longer in PM than in Melee (you can see the usmash loses its hitbox behind Ness, this doesn't happen in PM afiak). If someone confirms that they are the exact same, I will replace them.

    @KiddKoopa
    The version of BrawlBox I used for the first set didn't display the yo-yo's bones. I lost everything and had to get BrawlBox again for 2.6b and the version I used this time could. It doesn't show the hitboxes still, but it shows the positions which is still useful.
    Unfortunately, It still wont show the projectiles themselves, to PKF, PK flash and PKT1 are still a work in progress.

    All I really need to know is how long the hitbox stays out and I can correct it. I'll go into Frame Advance for a bit and try and find out.

    EDIT: Here's the data I compiled after a good two hours in frame advance trying to find out the data.
    Everything should be accurate. The reason my GIFs are inaccurate is because BrawlBox does not take FSMs into account so it "looks" like it's ending incorrectly. If you need any extra or further confirmations, it'd probably be best to ask a PMBR member.

    AttackHi4Start
    Frame Total: 11
    Hitboxes: Frames 10-11

    AttackHi4Hold
    Frame Total: 61
    Hitboxes: Frames 1-61
    Damage: 2

    AttackHi4
    Frame Total: 40
    Hitboxes: 1-18
    IASA: Frame 36

    AttackLw4Start
    Frame Total: 11
    Hitboxes: Frames 10-11

    AttackLw4Hold
    Frame Total: 61
    Hitboxes: Frames 1-61
    Damage: 2

    AttackLw4
    Frame Total: 51
    Hitboxes: 1-26
    IASA: Frame 46

    Is it possible to get data on his throws and other specials? Even without hitboxes. It would be nice to know when he can act out of stuff like PKT 1 and such.


    Also, where the f is this man's sticky!? Thank you.

    uuu Sure I guess, I hadn't done them yet cause I thought throws wouldn't be useful (as both you and the opponent are locked)

    Can probably get them done by tonight.

    Small update:

    Edit (February 26th 2014): Fixed bug in some animations where a new hitbox wouldn't replace the old one (BB bug, affected nair, bair, dair and PKT2). Also fixed animation lengths, accounting for the one extra frame BB adds to all animations. Hopefully Fixed PKT2 frame data, odd due to frame speed modifiers.

    Hey GMaster. Most frame data pages will include the shieldstun from all attacks. That way players can figure out when they have frame advantage on block. Think you can get that kind of data?

    Edit: Also you only have the Melee-style standing pivot grab. What's the frame data on the sliding Brawl-style pivot grab?

    It'd take some work, but I guess I could get shield stun, next update lol.

    And I do have the Brawl Pivot grab, the third one under grabs

    oh. i thought that was melee pivot grab. are they the same now? in brawl a pivot grab would do a reverse variety of the dash grab animation. melee pivot grab looks more like a reverse standing grab. sry if im just wrong.

    but yea shield stun would be much appreciated. lookin to see whether magnet can work as shield pressure in certain situations.

    Well Melee "pivot" was actually due to the fact you can do any standing action for 1 (might be 2) frames when you start a dash. pivot grabbing is just cancelling the first frame of a dash into a grab, but as you can cancel dash into dash, it lets you turn around. I really should call Brawl's a turnaround grab instead of a pivot, but I don't usually care which is used.

    Without looking at the specific data, magnet->nair/dair is safe on shield (the landing after nair/dair isnt). Magnet comes out frame 8, is JCable frame 10 and nair hits frame 4, which leaves a 7 frame window between. between shieldstun and the bonus stun from the electric hitbox afiak only invincible up-bs can break through it (Bowser)

    im mostly just trying to find reasons to waveshine ^_^. ive been a brawler for a year and now I'm looking to pick up PM and take Ness to the next level. I think like crazy situations like cross-up nair/fair/dair on shield into wavebounce magnet (or b-reversed magnet) on shield into grab. if any of those moves shield poke its still a good situation.

    Edit (March 7th 2014): added shield stun and advantage values. They may not be 100% accurate, but they should not be more than one frame off.

    waveshining is not good compared to the spacies becaue the startup is much slower. however i do like to jump and do a very low altitude PSI and djc it into nair or something. CPU did this to pressure my shield so i stole it.

    @choknater thats becoming one of my favorite approaches. if u can get it so that u hit ur opponents shield between frames 9-16 then u have the knockback hitbox which is very helpful.

    @GMaster171 thanks so much for this data. fair on shield is looking mad powerful with L-cancels. same with some other aerials. cant wait to start using this stuff.
