Hi! I will dedicate this thread to documenting every single character change that has happened to Suicune. Yes, everything from the first patch to Pokkén Tournament on Wii U to the latest patch to date. (After looking around the internet I never found such a list, so therefore I decided to make one myself.) Please note that this list is made with me trying to remember as much as possible of what has happened to Suicune throughout the updates + the obvious changes that already have been documented. This means that "subtle" changes will not appear here, since I don't know what could have happened between the arcade patches. (But if you know then it would be very, very appreciated if you could post them.) The easiest changes to find was of course the 1.3 on the Wii U and 1.5 on Pokkén Tournament DX since they are all very well documented and can be found on this forum and Serebii. Please correct me if something is wrong or I have forgotten a change, so I can adjust it in the list.
So without further ado, here it is:
1.3 (Wii U)
Y~X now shield pushes
Midair-Y in duel phase now has decreased block stun
(1.3X-1.49X) (Arcade patch(es))
Mirror Coat blindspot now fixed (previously it had a blindspot in front of it)
Mirror Coat now counter pierces
Blizzard now causes a wall splat when it crits
Hail no longer disappears when blocking an attack
True Sheer Cold no longer crits against countering opponents
True Sheer Cold (attack portion) now comes out faster (this was made to prevent characters from grabbing Suicune even though Suicune had already activated True Sheer Cold)
1.5 (Pokkén DX)
Icy Wind (stage 2) requires 30 less frames to charge (180>150)
Icy Wind (stage 3) requires 60 less frames to charge (300>240)
Aurora Beam in field phase can now be angled left or right
Holding Side-Y in field phase is now a new move
Midair-Y in duel phase during burst mode now shoots out two "water guns" instead of one
Midair-Y in field phase now has a landing hitbox
Aurora Beam in field phase can now be angled left or right when canceled from a Ranged Attack (neutral B)
?? (Future patches)
Did I miss something? Please feel free to correct me if anything is wrong. Thanks for reading!
