Being a Ness Main yourself I'm surprised you're giving me tips against your main.PK Freeze can be shielded. You could probably just use your Plasma Breath from a distance when Lucas is using PK Freeze. If you're offstage, you'll either want to recover low, because that attack doesn't go deep. He might be able to 2 frame you if you're recovering with up B. Lucas' PK Fire is difficult to get around when you're using a large character. Be defensive and evasive. If there are platforms, go over PK Fire. I'm not sure how you can deal with Lucas' PK Thunder. I'd imagine maybe Ridley's fair/nair. If you're both on the ground, then again, use Plasma Breath. Or try to roll around the slow attack and strike Lucas with a dash attack or something. Maybe even go for a grab. You should not be getting hit by Lucas' up smash. I'm not sure why he'd even go for that attack unless you're always hovering above him. Nair is annoying. Maybe use a properly spaced fair against him, or shield it and punish out of shield with your own nair.
Jump over Ness' PK Fire. It doesn't work in the same manner as Lucas', so you can jump over it and punish him or you can shield it. You can probably even jump over it and go for side B. If you get caught in Ness' PK Fire, just DI away from the attack. Maybe DI upward and away if he's spamming PK Fire so that you can hopefully dodge the other one. Be prepared to deal with his fair or u-smash, though. Hit the head of Ness' PK Thunder if you're in the air. Nair, dair, maybe even up B aiming downward might be able to help Ridley here. If you're offstage, then try to nair/fair it if you can. Ness' grab range is lackluster in this game, so he shouldn't be grabbing you easily unless he manages to get a drag down uair > grab, or if he goes for PSI Magnet > grab. You have to be very defensive against Ness. Against his fair, use your fair. Ridley's fair is like a sword that out ranges Ness' fair. Look for openings when facing off against him.
