Sheik wins this MU.

Sheik is much faster than Ike on the ground and has better frame data, while Ike has better range and power Sheik's speed is hard for Ike to keep up with and needles outrange Ike's moves it can , beat quick draw ,pressure him in neutral or gimp Ike's recovery. If Ike approaches in the air Sheik can run away and use needles or even fair and bair can hit Ike before his fair comes out. Ike has a very hard time landing his smash attacks on Sheik due to how slow they are and Sheik's fast speed she can punish Ike's nair with dash attack of grab, many of Sheik's moves come out faster than Ike's counter and lots of Sheik's moves are safe against aether. However Ike is more powerful than Sheik and some of his moves like aether, forward tilt, forward and down smash and dash attack are stronger than in Smash 4 and Sheik is lighter than in Smash 4. With directional air dodging Sheik's needles can't gimp Ike's recovery as easily as before and Ike no longer has a frame 7 jumpsquat also Ike's dash attack and quick draw are harder to punish now. However Ike's fair has less range, counter has more ending lag and with run cancelling in Ultimate Sheik can run up and forward smash Ike that whiffs smash attacks or counter, also Ike's run speed is barely faster than in 4 while Sheik's is much faster so she can run away from Ike more easily and charge needles. Sheik was Ike's worst matchup in Smash 4 even with Ike's buffs and Sheik's nerfs the latter has the advantage in this matchup overall.

My vote Ike 4 / Sheik 6
