I'm curious if any Jigglypuff players out there can come up with an actual use for her up throw. I've been able to find applications for every throw in the game no matter how niche with the sole exception of Jigglypuff's up throw. I've spent more time than I care to admit testing it and it's kind of an anomaly how bad this throw is. For one, it deals less damage than down throw, making it an inferior option for setting up juggles. It also has too much BKB to set up a tech chase on Battlefield, yet too little KBG to ever kill, even on the top platform of the same stage. It's not even good in the Rosalina matchup to separate her from Luma since she has enough frame advantage to hit Jigglypuff with Luma's up air before the former can get a move out (with the exception of Rest, which is a terrible move to hit Luma with for obvious reasons). Is this the only throw in the game that's 100% useless? Please let me know if you can think of anything, even if it's entirely conceptual.
