Don't ask
Did we get any professional opinions on Egg Roll? I keep hearing that he has no grab followups and all the footage I've seen seems to confirm this. Has anyone found anything?

Places around the world are getting thefinal build of the demo, The Wall will be one of em so just wait another few days for Yoshi info to flow in since Spain only had one yoshi player/main dropping info.

Hey, even if we don't get all the info we want from the full game 'demo', the game will be out within a month and then we can all finally start discovering anything we don't know yet for ourselves.

He's behind Mario for 6 frames in the 7th or 8th second of the video
Quick, better move the goalpost to just not getting a 3D model then.

I feel more bad for Jigglypuff as an original 12 member really. Hardly ever shows up in anything promotional unless it pertains directly to her, didn't even get a proper role in Subspace Emissary and came dangerously close to being cut entirely in two games. At least I know Yoshi isn't just hanging desperately on his seniority to stay relevant.

Oh, I'm so sorry for wanting my boi to shown a little more recognition in Smash due to his influence and household name status. Because Jigglypuff has it worse, that must mean I drop ALL of my advocacy for Yoshi. Gee, why'd I even bother...

*sigh* some people

I feel like people's intentions aren't really getting across too well here due to responses not being made directly to each other. Keep it cool guys, don't assume people are being hostile.

Yoshi was, for all intents and purposes, absent from the commercial. Similarly though, Jiggs doesn't show up much either. Advocating for one doesn't mean the other one should suffer -- it'd be nice if everyone could have their favorite character receive ample representation.

For me it's just more an annoyance than anything really, when you see it having become a trend for them keeping Yoshi out of things when all the other Original 8 members get sweet artwork references and animations and whatnot. It really does look/feel like they're trying to somehow replace Yoshi as one of the O8.

But in the end Yoshi is still there, and none of this will change that fact, and I'm still really grateful for that because there's plenty of other characters who don't get much promo-material spotlight whatsoever (like Jigglypuff, as meleebrawler said), or characters that are relegated to mere Assist trophy, stage hazard, trophy, Spirit or what-have-you status. I know a friend who really, really, really wanted Dillon in the game, but that seems very unlikely to happen now sadly what with his returning Assist trophy status, although Chrom being playable and still being in Robin's Final Smash gives some hope there yet. Whatever the case, as Yoshi fans, we can count ourselves lucky that Yoshi has been in Smash Bros right from the start at all, when you look at it like that, and even (still) represents his own spin-off franchise rather than being another Mario character to boot.

I truthfully never mean to sound ungrateful or anything, believe me there, I merely wish Yoshi wouldn't get sidelined as much as he is when compared to the other O8 members, and when it happens this often, it does get a little annoying. But I'm still really glad that Yoshi is here regardless and remains one of the safest mainstays in Smash Bros, too, and Yoshi being excluded from things doesn't mean I don't wish others could be included. It's just, y'know, I'm a Yoshi fan. Not a Jigglypuff fan (no offense of course, the Puff is still cool). So of course I'm gonna support the one I'm actually a fan of. That's all it is.

I didn't even notice he wasn't in the commercial.
Only thing I'm sad about with in regards of Yoshi is his games usually delayed or for smash little changes to coincide with his games and how Yoshi interacts in other games he's in like Yoshi's Story, Yoshi's Island, SMG2 or Odyssey.

Wall cling and tongue tether never.

Yoshi's finally on the blog...

"Today's Fighter
#05: Yoshi
Yoshi is all about egg-related moves, like throwing eggs, swallowing opponents and turning them into eggs, or turning into an egg and charging toward an opponent. With a high jump, recovery is a piece of cake for Yoshi! And for his Final Smash, a Yoshi army stampedes through the stage."

Overall a pretty great entry as it mentions a ton of moves. Though there IS something off about it. I'll let you figure out what it is :yoshi:

I can see at least two things off about it. For one, Yoshi is not all about egg-related moves; only his special moves (aside from down B) and his shield use eggs. And recovery isn't necessarily a 'piece of cake' for Yoshi. It's easier than certain others sure, but get knocked out the jump, or get knocked away before you touch ground again, and Yoshi is in serious trouble because then he has to rely on egg toss hops which aren't all that reliable since they only cover so much ground. Not to mention footstool jumps can really easily gimp Yoshi.

It's the unique parts of his moveset. Also these posts are destined to the average Joe casual, not the pros who know the ins and outs of everything. Do you really think footstooling Yoshi will come naturally to those players?

He looks off to me in this game. His size maybe? Or his lower jaw being too small? Am I the only one that thinks he looks a little off in this game?

I think I know what it is. His nose is too spherical and unnatural, just like his old Yoshi Story art. Looks like I could pluck it right off his face like it was a watermelon and his body was the stem. At least in his official Smash Bros art it looks like a part of his face, it kind of smooths out the crease where his nose meets the rest of his face. There's no seperation in the game itself.

Hi!

There is, but I don't know where you get invites...

Edit: Never mind. Here's the invite: https://discord.gg/ztg6VuJ

The other problem I have is his forward and up tilts. The hitbox doesn't seem anywhere close to as big as the animations, which are the same animation as up air.. does it seem lazy?

Utilt's hitbox is much larger behind like Fox'..... even though the animation doesn't match it.

Regardless, those two moves you mention are his best combo starters...

Ey guys does anyone want to test jab1 to yoshi bomb? I tested it and jab1 put in the staggered animation, the one that most stun moves put you into. Heck even the combo counter counts it as true. Is it though I have no way of actually checking if its true or not

I found a crash with Yoshi that involves pummeling someone in a Stamina match until they're at 0 HP and immediately throwing them afterward. I recorded a video to demonstrate this crash. I hope this is the right place for this sort of thing, since it's a bug that involves Yoshi.
