Safe 2X Setups

Recommended Posts

2X is a good button for many reasons.

 

Mid-high invuln, frame 15 heavy, good range for whiff punishing, etc. It being -16 balances out the positives.

 

Like many moves in Pokkén, a move can become more safe if done at a distance rather than point blank.

 

A setup can be done off a 8Y Icicle into j.Y for added distance (ex. 8Y > j.A > 1B > j.Y > 2X). This puts you in perfect distance to where the move is no longer punishable.

 

And depending on the character, stage position, and angle, the move can go from being -16, to -10/-8/-6/-4/-2.

 

Pretty nice knowledge check against those who don't take spacing into consideration when it comes to reacting against 2X.
