Just a question for people with the game. Can TL still catch bombs by throwing backwards midair and using an aerial? I haven't seen anyone so much as try it.

I don't have the game yet, so this is just from watching matches, but Toon Link seems like a different animal than Young Link. TL's projectiles are really good at limiting opponents' options and setting up for his stubbier aerials. He also, from what I can tell, has faster ground moves than YL (again, stubbier), which helps in the combo department. I'm not sure how you like to play, so it's very possible Young Link suits you more. He does seem to have better pressure with his moves. Toon Link is probably the more defensive of the two, using projectiles as a way to limit how his opponent can move as they approach rather than as long-ranged offensive tools. From my experience, TL lands a lot of his aerials by creating situations that make using them less risky. You're totally right about dair, though. It's bad.I really like Toon Link as a character design but as a less attuned player I'm having trouble justifying playing him over Young Link, were I to choose either. I especially dislike his dair and in general his aerials feel less reliable to me.
Yes. It feels like there are less frames to regrab the bomb, but It works.Just a question for people with the game. Can TL still catch bombs by throwing backwards midair and using an aerial? I haven't seen anyone so much as try it.
Nah, I honestly think his f-smash got buff by turning into a 1-hit instead of a 2-hit. It's true he lost the mix-up for that but in all honesty fsmash1 was punishable on shield and wasn't a reliable kill move at high percents in smash4 (even with that one patch that made it 'reliably' link more) reducing the mixup value imo.I'm really loyal to Toon Link, and i've been playing both TL and Young Link. I've been gravitating more to Young Link though due to his more ambush style gameplay. Do you guys think the loss of Toon Links second hit in his F-smash will limit mix up options?
Yeah Its clear that people are looking at Toon Link from a very biased perspective. I haven't seen much videos of people even trying to look further into the character and working on guides and combos. Especially compared to the other Links.So, Zero's calling Toon Link the worst Link... again. All because he's not the best of the three in terms of killing power, mobility, combo potential, or future potential for growth. I'm pretty sure all of that is debatable depending on what you value. It just irks me that top players all refuse to look at Toon Link fairly and spout stuff that isn't even true. You can tell me that Toon Link gets blown up the most in disadvantage, sure, but if you say he has no throw combos, then that just tell me you haven't tried very hard.
Sorry if I'm being harsh, I just needed to get that off my chest.
I wouldn't mind, especially if he got a conductor costume. Though I think more people know Toon Link from Wind Waker, so giving him his equipment from the more obscure DS games would make some people confused. In an ideal sequel I could see a possible Soul Calibur type of character select where you could choose different weapon aesthetics. That's probably not realistic, but it would be neat.I think toon link should reffrence Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hour Glass
Because i think the Lokomo Sword looks better than the Master Sword
What do you think?
