Ness vs. Bowser Jr

This is a very easy matchup for Ness. If you are competent as the powerhouse, you will have already noticed that there is barely anything Bowser Jr. has against him. Ness just neutralizes most of his weaponry. It just takes some time to getting used to on the timing. That is what this matchup is about for Ness. Timing.

Bowser Jr.'s cannonball is that bat's lunch. Don't worry about that. If your reflected cannonball connects, he's probably a goner.

Bowser Jr's side b is his most important move for his offense. If he connects it, he will follow into an airel, usually dair at low percents, followed by a Fair, up-tilt which combos into itself and then he will usually go for one or two Uairs. The airel he uses will depend on the percent. But, your Ness. So, DI away from him after his Dair and Nair. You may get out of it, especially at higher percents. Pk fire also destroys this move. Use it and get your down throw combos. So, if you shut down this set-up, you will shut down most aspects to this character.

His Up-smash and Forward Smash are the ones to watch out for. If shielded, Ness can easily get the grab. His down smash is more powerful but it has way more lag. Good Bowser Jr. players may not even use it that much.

Another set up Bowser Jr. may use is if you shield the Drill dair, they may go for an immediate up-b. His up-b is very good and has two hitboxes. The first one locks you hitstun so you are helpless for the second, more powerful one. Hold shield if you think this might be happening. It blocks it.

When he uses his up-b. he gets a really strong airel. This is something to watch out for. It is very strong. But it is move that requires precise timing. Air dodging and shielding will help you beat this move out pretty easy. The fact that his up-b is used for offense means he will get punished easily. A Fair when he is without his clown car will be deadly to him if its hit early. Pk Thunder is good for juggling him like it is his dad. Pk thunder 2 is good if you can read his landing when he is in helpless. Back throw works a lot as usual. Basic Ness stuff.

Best moves to kill Bowser Jr. as Ness:

Back Throw
The Bat
Uair
bair
Pk Thunder 2
