Still a good list of characters you got, especially wanting to use Chrom and Pichu
Thanks, same to yours. I've always liked Link and Chrom/Roy better because #1. Link requires thought with bomb placements and strings and #2. Chrom/Roy just fell so free with their strings, they serve as a nice break from Link. Pichu just feels fun and his thunder confirms are so satisfying.

No lie, I expected Chrom and Pichu to be bad due to the small amount of gameplay they had...then the game came out and proved me wrong

I totally agree, I thought Chrom would be trash because of that awful recovery, but then aethercide became a thing. I thought Pichu would be bad because Melee, literally just Melee. I thought he would just be the same old joke character

Glad they proved us and many others wrong

Yeah, nice little surprise with Pichu, I never thought of playing Pichu before SSBU came out, and then I saw Alpharad's video, and then I got the game with savings, and Link and my other secondaries just clicked
Any Link clicks with somebody

Excluding For Glory players since they don’t really play any of the Links correctly
That really annoys me, just spamming up-smash, forward-smash, and projectiles. At least use his good moves like nair, bair, down b, fast fall dair, side b for pressure, and u-air to poke through platforms. In short, for glory Links suck

That’s exactly how I feel...now we got Online Belmonts running around

Thanks, appreciate it, I've just always been more interested in Link, I'm the same with Young Link, I only have like 60 KOs with him
Try to lab with him though. If the curiosity arises you to do it, I would go for it. Since he has great speed I was already interested in using him. Plus spacing with the projectiles looks great to do with that added speed. He seems to have great combo potential with that speed thrown in there.

I'll consider it, seems like a good use of my time

For newcomers it's definitely Simon and Richter Belmont, though I have yet to actually use them.

For veterans then it's Cloud, simply cause I love FF and I really loved his reveal trailer, so I was happy when he made a return. Of course the FE characters are up there for me in favorites too.

Early on I played a ton of Ridley. With him being the first character I unlocked in Elite Smash. I’ve also jumped around with Inkling, Young Link, Pokémon Trainer, the Belmonts, as well as some of my Smash 4 mains - Bowser Jr., Olimar, Cloud, Roy, Little Mac, Rosa, Ness, Mario, etc.

I’m really digging Piranha Plant. I could literally play Plant dittos with my friends for hours. He’s just so wacky and unique, but still feels really clean and fluid. I do wish that there was less lag on some of his aerials. Maybe then I would actually be maining him.

Long story short - I’m horrible at choosing a main. For me, literally the best part of Smash is the sheer variety of characters. How on Earth am I supposed to pick only one to git gud with?

:ultbowserjr::ultridley::ultyounglink::ultmario::ultpiranha: are probably my favs right now. But that is more than subject to change. Especially with all the DLC on the way.

Wario is my official main. Again. But I want to get good with Olimar, and potentially one of the five upcoming characters, already super excited for Joker.
I'm just great at playing Wario though, he's definitely my go to. I love his combos (forward air is beautiful), how fast he is, his improved moves (bite is crazy now!), his new moves (forward tilt is great), his returning shoulder bash!
And I also just really like his character. Along with some of the characters from Bayonetta and Kid Icarus, I'd say Wario is definitely one of my favourite game characters, his personality is great. So are his platforming games, which is why I always go with his normal Wario Land costume.

Love the outlook of having many secondaries, I had that outlook in Sm4sh, and it's great to see someone carry that into ultimate

:ultganondorf:
:ultyounglink:
I wish that Ryu was on par with sm4sh Ryu but besides that I really enjoy this roster, I can’t stand heavies but Ganon feels so good in this game I can’t not play him. CF is my baby and YL is a blast to play.
