Is there any use for the Lob Shots? And note that I'm not talking about the combos where you lob pass to someone and they immediately shoot it in mid-air. I'm talking about a direct lob-shot where you press B and Z at the same time.
The computer has gotten a goal or two on me like this. The only time I see to use it is when the goalie is stunned but not completely knocked down, such as with Dry Bones' special or maybe with Toad. This is because sometimes I'll use Dry Bones' shock to stun the goalie, then shoot right after but it'll hit him and bounce off.
So anyway aside from that specific situation are their any other special strategies for this shot or is it pretty much useless?
PS :: Oh yeah I'll just throw this question in here too: What does Toad's Special Shot do? I know it lights the Goalie on Fire but everytime I do it and shoot afterwards, he blocks it just as he would normally.
