I think this matchup is actually really good for Piranha Plant, as in it is even and very doable for him. Most top Yoshi and Plant players also agree, with Brood and Greward calling it even from the Plant side, Suarez calling it even, Myles and Pharaoh thinking Yoshi might even lose slightly and a huge joint Yoshi matchup chart putting it in even.

Ptooie is really good at stuffing Yoshi's aerial approaches, so Yoshi has to more so approach on the ground and grab more (and Yoshi's grab is pretty bad). I think Yoshi's grounded tools are overall better, and he obviously gets better conversions as well, but Plant can hold his own and match Yoshi's damage by the theoretical damage he'll get from poison cloud, Ptooie and raw hits. Jab is also a good move for Plant in this matchup since it is frame 2. The ledgetrapping is also really good for Plant here, since Yoshi can't just double jump out of it as he can with something like Belmont or Mii Gunner ledgetrapping because of the high damage Ptooie has. Even if it is just poison cloud, Yoshi will eat a lot of %. Plant's kill moves are also pretty good in this matchup considering they are explicitly designed to anti air. Yoshi is still Yoshi, however, and can very much hold his own in this matchup, absolutely destroying plant in disadvantage and having way better mobility. But this comes down to a matchup most Yoshi players wouldn't want to play, compared to something like Steve, Snake or even some other losing matchups such as Roy or Lucina. I vote 5/5.
