Bomb Recovery

In Melee, Samus can bomb jump to greatly extend her horizontal recovery. In SSB, Samus cannot bomb jump. However, using bombs and immediately DIing towards the stage aids in her horizontal recovery to a degree, although not nearly as much as bomb jump recovery does. Just remember that once you use a bomb, the double jump cannot be used until Samus lands.
