So, why is yoshi suddenly a top tier pick? He got buffed sure but he's largely the same character I don't understand why people think he's stupidly amazing.

The engine and universal character changes favor him a lot more.

Also:

Substantial buffs IMHO.

All of his aerials were also buffed (this is huge on it's own) along with the egg throw and yoshi bomb changes, so he has a lot more options.

Wait, what kind of engine/universal changes
But didn't every character get mobility buffs? Also how does the landing lag buffs benefit him in a huge way, unless theres a stupidly good landing lag buff I'm not seeing? I'm not saying yoshi being top is bad FINALLY HE IS, I just don't really know why he actually is.

It's a bit of overhype again like Smash 4, it'll slow down soon but he's still good enough to maybe stay in the higher tiers. Just not top tier like inkling chrom/roy marth/lucina the pika bros peach/daisy and so on.

I'm enjoying my rest during holiday break. I don't usually get much sleep day to day when school is going on. =/

Still grinding all the single player content in Ultimate too. There's so much left~

Is it true that dthrow to uair is actually a true kill combo now? i’ve been getting it consistently on all weight classes and the combo counter registers it as true as well

Anyone know what Yoshi's matchup is against Pikachu in SSBU?
I've gone against a few pichus, they aren't tough, you just have to be fast, use air attacks with short hops. You can Smash attack them around 70-80 percent for a kill. Haven't gone against a pikachu yet though.

This is a Yoshi Matchup Chart for Smash Ultimate in my opinion. Feel free to comment any general tips or feedback if you would like.

No idea when I got it since I definitely didn't have it a month or two back, but it appears the vip member color doesn't matter anymore since the higher ups removed the place anyways.

Earlier today, while visiting the New York State Fair, I got a chance to try out Super Smash Bros. Ultimate; Nintendo is giving people a chance to try out some of its Nintendo Switch titles until the end of the weekend. I was playing as Yoshi, while my three opponents chose Isabelle, Inkling, and Wolf.

I won that match and only got KO'd once, but the match wasn't competitive, since items were present, and I was the only one who actually tried to chase after the Smash Ball; I got it, and was able to score a hit with Yoshi's Final Smash as well.

Sadly, I was only permitted to play one match during my visit to the Nintendo Switch stand.

There are so many characters there that have disadvantages that my friends/teammates pick during practice games, two Little Mac mains and a Kirby main, the only character that I don't have the upper hand on when I play against them is Meta Knight. Let it be known that I'm not actually a god at the game, it's just that everyone else either a. doesn't know which characters are weak to yoshi or b. is giving me the handicap.

Either way I'm completely okay with the ego boost :yoshimelee:

...Either that, or I'm reading the chart the wrong way 'round.

Man, I'm doing a terrible job of keeping this thread afloat. But I have other things that take up my time and I'm barely even active on the General :yoshi:
You aren't getting paid for it or anything, I'm sure actually playing the game is a bit more rewarding.

Don't gotta keep the thread afloat. Unfortunately the days of forums for smash is nearly completely dead in favor of even Twitter over discord the last couple years. Hell the mod for the Yoshi section Delta hasn't been online since October.

The old days if you were gone for even a couple weeks the staff would think about finding a replacement or adding another mod or two for sub-forums right away due to the forums actually being active and needing to keep an eye on people. Or at least discussion on it

I hate to say it, but he's right. Forums are great, but 288 characters fits more neatly into an attention span.
So let's talk about a completely separate, definitely pressing issue: Totaka's voice lines from Yoshi's Story. Iconic, maybe, but the yoshis in that game are literally babies. Like my avatar. Full-grown yoshi (and even the older juveniles) have been shown to be able to speak fluent English when they're not being made by Square, so I'd kinda like to see some new lines for older yoshi.

Guess random life update for social, I'm 26 now. My Yoshi server I gave to yikarur awhile back cause I barely played smash + dysfunctional controller last year+ now while waiting for a controller I commissioned back in August to be finished.

I think I'll still forever exist in Smash and Smashboards for another 2+ years most likely before I'm completely done with smash. Hard to say.

Wow, October. And even still there have only been like 7 posts on this forum since my last login.

Which, incidentally, is why I stopped checking Smashboards consistently, and probably why it took so long for the change in mod hands (congrats Slush!)

Similar life update: Being an adult has made me leave Smash behind basically. It'll always hold a special place and really defined my life trajectory, but here we are.

Also, pandemic really sucks for, well, obvious reasons. But work from home life has me 95% of the way to my ideal lifestyle haha.

Thanks Delta, I also am looking after Banjo boards which was the main place I was tasked to. Yoshi was secondary. I think with this quarantine happening I wanna be involved with Smash even more than before once it ends. Definitely wish to enter more tournies at least and if I can ever get my controller done lmao.

What a hassle this year has been.
