That's disappointing, because I've seen a couple in high-ranked matches on youtube, and he can rock so hard if you lead with him to get evidence, trigger Turnabout Mode, and swap him out.

Sounds about right. But hey, most fighters are at least set up to give players easy access to a comparable amount of moves no matter what character they play as. Every character in SSBB can smash upwards using the same command; almost every character in UMvC3 has a majority of their specials use a quarter-circle motion or Z motion; every character in SC5 can 8-way run, etc. Think of any ponygoon tourney as backyard flag football: you may not excel at it, but it's watered down enough that you can jump in quickly and still feel like you'll accomplish something.
And as Willsun pointed out, knowing key phrases and understanding the meta is different from being able to play the game well. This sounds just like any sports fan!
Ew, will you please just stop posting already so I can stop having to look at it?
