Using Yoshi’s special moves obviously calls for becoming an expert at throwing eggs.
Up Special Move: Egg Throw
This is what happens if you just do a normal throw.
If you hold the button down, both speed and distance increase.
If you tilt the Control Stick forwards when you throw, the angle of the throw will be more horizontal.
If you tilt the Control Stick backwards when you throw, the angle of the throw will be more vertical.
The length you hold the button and the direction you move the stick allow for all sorts of combinations. If you can master them all, your range of attack will be really huge!
Standard Special Move: Egg Lay
This move captures your opponent in an egg. Yoshi is pretty scary when he uses his tongue attack.
And off into the abyss...
If you get trapped in an egg in mid-air, you can move left and right to try to avoid falling off edges. Also, you can break out of the egg by tilting the Control Stick back and forth.
However, if you’ve taken a lot of damage, it will be harder to break free. So if you’re taking a beating, you’ve got to be careful of surprise attacks!
