This is Ness’s best high tier matchup (and it’s only even). I’d say the neutral is even as Olimar struggles against character who can approach him through the air efficiently like Wario, Peach and Ness because of his slow air speed and lack of approach options. Olimar also hates attacks with lingering hitbox as it can hurt him and the Pikmin, and what does Ness mostly approach with? Forward air, which has decent enough range and is a lingering hitbox. Ness can also efficiently camp with PK Fire, as it stops Pikmin being thrown at him and Olimar can’t really do anything against it because of his lack of air speed and ground mobility. Olimar on the other hand, has great range with his Pikmin, so his smash attacks can be a real struggle for Ness to get in.

Ness can also edge guard Olimar really well as he can edgehodge Olimar’s tether recovery and gimp Olimar with Fair, Nair and PK Thunder (the bolt). Olimar can still edgeguard Ness If Ness tries to recover hortizotally because he can gimp with Pikmin throw, but if Ness is recovering Vertically, than there’s really nothing Olimar can do because Olimar’s recovery is awful so trying to get back will be hard, and he will get hit by Ness when Ness gets hit with the bolt of lightning. So I’d give the edgeguarding to Ness.

Olimar though, can take advantage of the additional lag Ness takes from a grab. It’s worse when Olimar has more Pikmin because it increases the range of his grab.

I’d say this matchup is a solid even, as they both go even in neutral, Ness in edgeguarding and Olimar being able to take advantage of Ness Grab release lag plus having better range. This matchup is definitely not as bad for Olimar as Falco, Ice Climbers or Meta Knight.
