He is currently ranked 21st on the current tier list, in the F tier. Yoshi has a good combo ability, as well as some decent approach opptions. However, Yoshi's biggest flaw is his lack of a "true" third jump; this creates a reliance on his large double jump, causing Yoshi to be extremely easy to edgeguard and gimp. His high falling speed also makes him a target for combos. Additionally, his shield acts as a double edged sword; while it makes Yoshi immune to shield stabbing, it also lacks effects other characters have. Yoshi has bad matchups all around, with only one being considered favourable, and he has the dubious distinction of being the only character that has an even matchup against Pichu.
