These are things I would appreciate advice for:
3x3 sub 20
2x2 sub 5
pyra: better algs
skewb: better algs and finger tricks
how to solve megaminx: last layer (easy)

I would really appreciate it if you could get some links to videos on how to be better at these cubes. :) Have a good day!
same with Megaminx bro, i still mess up the last layer. and ortega?

CLL is over 40 algs, I wouldn't learn it before you are sub 4. To get sub 5 with Ortega, you can have:
1 sec first layer
2 sec OLL
2 sec PLL

Only one of these splits have to be faster than the given time, and you have a sub 5 solve

1 sec first layer is easy as long as you plan out the entire face during inspection, so practice that. Also, watch some example solve to learn new tricks for efficient face building. It's very important that you don't use like 10 moves just for the first layer.
2 sec OLL is easy if you have good recognition and execution. If you know good algs, drill them so that you can do them all sub 1. That leaves an entire second for recognition and lockups, should be enough.
2 sec PBL is also definitely doable, drill the algs, make sure you know good algs for all angles and try to plan out the permutation of the bottom layer during inspection. That way you only need to recognize the permutation on top and you know the PBL. Also learn to predict AUF.

In general, turn as fast as possible on 2x2. Look ahead doesn't apply, so there is no reason to slow down your turning.

It takes some time to learn all of this but it's definitely doable!

Which events out of these 4 do you prioritize more?

Learn full Oll and PLL. I recommend listening to something while learning on Jperm.net. ( layer by layer) is a great podcast. Do tons of solves. Excute cross as fast as possible. Insert into back slot.

You don't need full OLL to become sub 20. Make sure you know full PLL though. Have an effecient cross (don't solve one piece at a time!!!!). Have fairly efficient f2l solutions. When you know full PLL you can learn a few easy OLL's. There are a few videos on YouTube with some easy cases that you should learn.
Also I think that it would be worth looking at BrodyTheCuber's sub 20 tutorial as it had doing useful information about splits.

Yeah I avg 16 secs and I don't know full oll
