The Pikmin are so ridiculously good, and if you have the right Pikmin at your disposal you can pretty much shut down any and every character and control the whole ground space. His normals and aerials are good too, and can play defensively and offensively. Hell, he has no flaw in his design bar one thing - his recovery. His recovery is so awful that he must stay on the ground for the majority of the fight, so any aerial fighter (see: Wario, Meta Knight, Yoshi) can have a field day with him should they exploit his weakness. Though he's still dangerous because his Pikmin can utterly destroy you if you're careless. Olimar is one character that must be played carefully as and against. This is from an ex-Olimar main.
I cannot possibly calculate the awesomeness of this post. Everything was spot on. I almost decided to main olimar myself but decided to second him and main Yoshi instead due to his adorableness and unorthodox fighting style. Tbh until i dissected and learned yoshi's character I was utter-ably hopeless with him. Mainly due to most non-yoshi mains viewing as yoshi hardest to control. Anyway while playing Yoshi i feel like I can take on the majority of the cast bar say, wolf, lucario, samus DX, and marth.
