Options Against Fake Out: Charge

Recommended Posts

Fake Out: Charge (5A[Y]) is a new pressure tool that counter pierces and launches on hit. It allows Weavile to play more aggressively without having to worry about CA's halfway through.

 

Before you only had this kind of pressure when you were in burst and had access to your burst attack, or by doing 5Y > 6[X] strings.

 

Since 5A[Y] has the same on block advantage (+8) and block damage as a normal 5AY, Its mostly used as a callout tool for panic CA under pressure.

 

That being said, 5A[Y] is more of a commitment as you have to charge in front of your opponent's face for it to work, giving your opponent a small window of time to punish the charge.

 

-fY/bY > 5A[Y] beats i35 Counter Attacks (31F Punishable)

-5AA/5AAA > 5A[Y] beats i27 Counter Attacks. (23F Punishable)

-5X > 5A[Y] clashes with i27 Counter Attacks. (23F Punishable)
-6X > 5A[Y] beats i27 Counter Attacks. (23F Punishable)
-6[X] > 5A[Y] beats i11 Attacks/Counter Attacks (beats every Counter Attack in the game).

 

 

Its no question that 6[X] > 5A[Y] will be the most common route used because of the option coverage it provides.

 

5A[Y] still has a big weakness. And that weakness is that it can be anti-aired because of Its Special Mid height property.

 

What this means is that even faced with a 6[X] > 5A[Y] scenario, every character can 8Y themselves out of it. And because 6[X] is able to blockstring into every special Weavile has, you're in no real danger to throw out an 8Y. The same goes for jumping it as well.

 

Not just 8Y can punish 6[X] > 5A[Y], there are many more rewarding actions characters can do to punish this new tool even further.
