Firstly, thanks for the compliment vijay!!
So.. rising knees huh? Well, Yoshi won't ever be able to morris dance without that so I'll give it a go.
The move that frustrates me a lot is moonsault slayer. I can do it just fine in practice mode and then as soon as I start playing for real, it never, ever works. That happens with a lot of stuff in fact. Maybe the nerves of the battle get to me and affect my coordination?
So really, just playing and playing until everything is committed to muscle memory, is my only option. That can be phase one of my plan then. Phase two can be combos... phase 3 strategy and phase four?? Hmm... maybe invite my ex over so I can CREAM his ass and laugh at is utter emasculation!! Mwahahahaha.
