i've been watching a lot of pro-level falco matches while procrastinating my last exam, i really wanna get better with falco but i can't do those short hop lasers for shit. any advice/videos for it?
Can you SHFFL? All you gotta to is dash then SHand press B. Dont worry about fast falling it until you get used to it. Shit man I dont even play fox and I can do SH double lasers. It just takes practice.

honestly i was short hop lasering with falco before i got good at the game. its definitely not as hard as you think. you just need to short hop with the x or y button, whichever you use to jump, press b to laser, andthen fast fall to the ground.

what you really need to practice with falco is SHFFL and learning to waveshine. those are crucial to falco play.

I don't think I'll ever conform to playing any top tiers. Low tiers just make my heart go boom. Trying to learn bowser and doc.
you definitely have the low tier gimmicks advantage and the fact that people might not know how to fight them. young link is actually really good, watch armada's or axe's YL. they are ridic

oh charlii my friend mikeyy got third in melee at the tourney and he was playing ICs, he was wobbling all over the place. i played him a couple times on stream, check out those matches.

yeah I was inspired to stick with him after watching axe play a few months ago.

he's a very balls out character yet can be a campy gimmick as well. mixing it up can be a very threatening situation for others.

Here's what to practice with falco.

SH Laser -> Waveshine
SH Laser -> Grab (this is really good because if you hit a very late laser and land right in front of their shield it's a free grab)
SH Laser -> Shine
SH Laser -> Shine -> JC Grab


Remember, you can literally land inside someone who is in shield when you shoot a laser and immediately shine because there's no landing lag. So, if you think they're going to shield grab, space your laser a so you can land a shine.

I wouldnt recommend SH laser > grab on a good player. it's easily spot dodged

everyone should learn how to buffer rolls/spot dodges. I can't tell you how useful this is and will get you out of many situations!

does anyone else see the correlation with picking up characters of similar weight class to their main?

i noticed that when i switch to my doc or back to my yl i get super rusty for the first match i play because of the difference in weight. that, or I just don't practice enough.

I'm seeing players like axe who's a pikachu main get better and better with characters like falco and young link which fall around the same weight class. Wondering if I would do better specializing in a certain weight class.
