I just want to mess with some 'nades

I'd like that the grenades works as a selfdamage recovery like Sandbag (or Snake), but it seems a great projectile to spam methodically utilize.
Yeah sorry i double posted.

If you SideB onto a platform (and for once this thankfully does not require TAS-like timing with the inputs or even precision, really), Krystal can maintain her speed in the air and even pseudo-wavedash when landing (FSmash and DSmash completely stop her movement though, so unfortunately we don't get to see janky shockwaves)
Image

Additionally, if you use her forward aerial just as she lands while still maintaining the speed, she will practically perform a teleport (certain aerials from a few characters have the same property, notably Yoshi's NAir. The faster the character is moving when landing and the longer the aerial takes to get to a landing animation, the further they seem to "teleport")
teleport: show
Image
Did you catch that?
Let's try this again in slow motion...

Image

She sounds like an actual chicken when doing all these dashes and jumps though lol



EDIT (feb 15th):
Sliding off a platform or ledge when throwing grenades cancels all the endlag: show
Image

Platforms are your best friend if you're going to play krystal.

EDIT 2 (same day):
DSmash reaches across platforms: show
Image

Also, she can SD with DSmash on a moving platform, so be careful in Smashville unless you want one sick Sacrificial KO
Image
if the opponent doesnt mash out DThrow and Grenade can chaingrab: show

Those keyboard algorithms plus fingers are too specified to make her a great fighter (BTW that advanced pseudo-wavedash looks very potential for grabs, baits and punishes)

Up-Throw can combo into Grenade against heavies (or fastfallers above 30% or so), which then comboes into her aerials
Can also works on characters with more average weight/falling speed at early percentages, but it's much tougher to deal with the DI and the setup just quickly stops working as they build up damage
stuff: show
Image Image Image
Since it requires reading your opponent's DI for the grenade throw, i'll just say that this is more of a situational combo, UThrow + UAir is still better if you just want to go for the kill

Her grenade is pretty nice imo lol

I thought Krystal was gonna be mid tier.
No, she's high tier.
Definitely better then Simon and Ryu, though Lucario, Waa and no duh, Rayman are better.
She is good tho, but FD ruins her movement and is just not good for her.
She's insanely fun tho.

The sad part about up throw is that you can easily DI to avoid the combo filter and friends.

Krystal is the best of the new characters by far imho.

Krystal’s got one hell of a good neutral, being able to very easily play aggressive using her Divekick, her great Nair and Bair, as well as Dash Attack mixups on shield, or she can run and gun with Grenade to play defensively quite well and use her disjoints to shark and anti-air.

Her advantage state is flat out oppressive. Uair and Dair are really strong and easy to combo into. Grenade and Divekick open up her kill confirms to be very easy and very powerful, and her other disjoints hit like a goddamn truck, especially her Up-B. Sniper Rifle and Grenade also will make you cry if you ever go offstage against her as well.

She does have some issues, like her Up-B not going very far, but her recovery is FAR from the worst in the game. Divekick is still very good for distance and as long as you are careful with your jump, you shouldn’t have any difficulty getting back onstage.

Once people begin breaking this character down, I’m exceptionally confident that she’ll be regarded as the top tier character that she is. Very very good character.

She's really really good.
I think Lucario is better, but I can see your arguement.

Her Sniper Rifle and her grenade completely shuts down any form of approach by Lucario.
Hell, any character for that matter, they're just that good of a projectile.
She's also faster than Lucario, and doesn't need to rely much on damage taken for a ton of killpower.
She has a bigger advantage than him in stages with platforms (her movement techs gives her more mobility there) or without (camping).

There is no way she is better than Lucario OR Simon, she is in the same level as Ryu, all newcomers are good, but that's it.
Lucario's insane combos, as well as his comeback factor, and Simon's insane range and projectiles overcome her camping and neutral game.

Am i the only one who found out she's the only new character who DOESN'T have a throw animation?
When i tried throwing a bumper with the attack button, it didn't leave her hands.
This needs to be fixed.

The patch released early, so their item animations aren't done yet.

Her aerial SideB can snap onto ledge even when facing away from it, though still has to be pretty close to it (might have potential as a way to get away from opponent pressure on the ledge though)
Image



Out of curiosity i decided to see what would happen if she also collided with an opponent
Image

her ledge animation gets slowed down for a moment lol
