  1. Safe 2X Setups

    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.

  2. Weavile's Cancel Frame Data

    Hey. Weavile's got cancels. Besides the universal special cancel that every character has, Weavile has Agility cancel. Agility can cancel into any special Weavile has, giving you farther reach on your attacks while also being able to approach easier because of Agility's projectile invincibility. Every special though will come out slower than their original impact time since Agility requires you to stay in Its animation until a certain point. Weavile can also cancel Night Slash (4A) and Knock Off (6A). Not only providing added mobility, but also causes your opponents to prefer a defensive option (block or CA). These cancels however leave a large gap before the Weavile is able to act again, giving the other player an opportunity to punish. Knock Off Cancel (-45) fY -29 bY -29 2Y -32 2YY -29 4Y/5Y -33 4YY/5YY -29 4YYY/5YYY -29 4YYYY/5YYYY -25 5X/5[X] -25 6X -25 6[X] -6 Night Slash Cancel (-49) fY -33 bY -33 2Y -36 2YY -29 4Y/5Y -36 4YY/5YY -33 4YYY/5YYY -33 4YYYY/5YYYY -25 5X/5[X] -29 6X -25 6[X] -10 Agility Cancel (Fury Swipes and Fake Out require 16 frames of Agility before a cancel is possible. All other specials require 8 frames.) i15 Fury Swipes + 16 = i31 i23 Fake Out + 16 = i39 i33 Fake Out: Charge + 12 = i45 i35 8F Night Slash + 8 = i43 i23 8F Knock Off + 8 = i31 i23 8F Ice Punch + 8 = i31 i11 8F Burst Attack + 8 = i19 Special Cancel -fY > Special +12 -bY > Special +12 -2Y > Special +10 -2YY > Special +16 -4Y/5Y > 6X +12 / Special +10 -4YY/5YY > 6X +16 / Special +14 -4YYY/5YYY > 6X +16 / Special +14 -4YYYY/5YYYY > Special +18 -5X/5[X] > Special +18 -6X > Special +20 -6[X] > Special +37
  3. Options Against Fake Out: Charge

    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.

  4. All About Jump X Icicle Loops

    Weavile got a huge Field Phase damage buff in regards to Jump X now being able to cancel into Icicle Crash on hit. Jump X on Its own only deals 108, but thanks to Version 1.2, j.X > j.A > bB (Backwards jump) > j.X deals 168. And it doesn't stop there. In burst you're able to do j.X > j.A > bB > j.X > j.A > bB > j.X for 240. Now this seems like something that should be pulled off everytime you land a Jump X. But the more you look into it, the less free it actually is. First off, the Jump X Icicle Crash cancel can only be done from a set distance. Meaning an instant Jump X point blank distance from your opponent will not give you the cancel. Secondly, because of the knockback the Icicle Crash deals to the opponent, it makes it difficult for the second Jump X to combo. Making this only consistent when the opponent is pressed to the wall. Thirdly, speed is a huge factor. A speed debuff makes all of this completely irrelevant. As for a speed buff (or the extra speed given in burst), it gives you the potential to land this combo midscreen. And fourthly, all of this is character specific. Here are the requirements needed for you to be able to do this midscreen against each character: -Darkrai: Burst/Speed Buff -Blaziken: Speed Buff Only -Pikachu/Pikachu Libre: Burst/Speed Buff -Lucario: Speed Buff Only -Gardevoir: Speed Buff Only -Scizor: Speed Buff Only -Aegislash: Burst/Speed Buff -Croagunk: Burst/Speed Buff -Sceptile: Burst (2 j.X's Only)/Speed Buff -Gengar: Burst/Speed Buff -Mega Gengar: Speed Buff Only -Decidueye: Burst/Speed Buff -Machamp: Burst (2 j.X's Only)/Speed Buff -Braixen: Speed Buff Only -Empoleon: N/A; Works consistently -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo: Speed Buff Only -Chandelure: Burst/Speed Buff -Suicune: Speed Buff Only -Weavile: Speed Buff Only -Charizard: Burst/Speed Buff -Garchomp: Burst (2 j.X's Only)/Speed Buff
  5. Homing Attack Priority

    One of the most common actions used in Field Phase would be Homing Attacks, as they're a pretty straight forward and get the job done. Often times you'll see both players using their Homing Attack at the same time. And if both players got the pre-frames out of the way, there will be a clash involved. There are a couple of instances that determine which Homing Attack wins. Speed is self explanatory, a frame 17 Homing Attack will always beat a frame 23 Homing Attack. The next is priority. There will be scenarios where Homing Attacks of same speed will collide. Clashes usually come out of these, but certain Homing Attacks are able to override the opposing Homing Attack. An example would be how Empoleon's Homing Attack (frame 21) is able to beat Pikachu, Lucario, and Braixen's Homing Attack (frame 21) when they collide. Speaking of clashes, when Homing Attacks of the same speed and priority clash, it will not always reset both players to neutral. There are character specific cases where one player will either be left -8 or +8 after the clash. Factoring both speed and priority, here's how a Homing Attack tier list would look like in order: S: A: B: C: D: * *Aegislash: Shield Form Homing Attack Using this information allows you to use Homing Attacks not only offensively, but as a defense tool in response to other Homing Attacks. Giving you the advantage in certain matchups. Listed below are the interactions of each character's Homing Attack against the rest of the cast's Homing Attack. Darkrai (25F)- Beats: N/A Clashes: -Gardevoir (Air tech for them) -Aegislash: Shield Form (-8) -Gengar (-8) -Chandelure (-8) Blaziken (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Braixen -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Pikachu Libre (Air tech for them) -Croagunk (+8) -Sceptile (+8) -Empoleon (0) -Suicune (+8) Pikachu (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Lucario (0) -Croagunk (-8) -Sceptile (-8) -Braixen (Air tech for them) -Suicune (-8) Lucario (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Pikachu (0) -Croagunk (-8) -Sceptile (-8) -Braixen (Air tech for them) -Suicune (+8) Gardevoir (25F)- Beats: N/A Clashes: -Darkrai (Air tech for you) Pikachu Libre (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Gengar -Braixen -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Blaziken (Air tech for you) -Sceptile (Air tech for you) -Empoleon (Air tech for you) -Suicune (Air tech for you) Scizor (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Gengar -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Aegislash (-8) -Mega Gengar (-8) -Decidueye (+8) -Machamp (0) -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (-8) -Garchomp (0) Aegislash (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Gengar -Decidueye -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (+8) -Mega Gengar (0) -Machamp (+8) -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (0) -Garchomp (+8) Aegislash: Shield Form (25F)- Beats: -Gardevoir Clashes: -Darkrai (+8) -Gengar (0) -Chandelure (0) -Charizard (Air tech for them) Croagunk (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Blaziken (-8) -Pikachu (+8) -Lucario (+8) -Sceptile (0) -Empoleon (-8) -Suicune (0) Sceptile (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Blaziken (-8) -Pikachu (+8) -Lucario (+8) -Pikachu Libre (Air tech for them) -Croagunk (0) -Braixen (Air tech for them) -Empoleon (-8) -Suicune (0) Gengar (25F)- Beats: -Gardevoir Clashes: -Darkrai (+8) -Aegislash: Shield Form (0) -Chandelure (0) -Charizard (Air tech for them) Mega Gengar (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Decidueye -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (+8) -Aegislash (0) -Machamp (+8) -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (0) -Garchomp (+8) Decidueye (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (-8) -Machamp (-8) -Weavile (+8) -Garchomp (+8) Machamp (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (0) -Aegislash (-8) -Mega Gengar (-8) -Decidueye (+8) -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (-8) -Garchomp (0) Braixen (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Gengar -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Pikachu (Air tech for you) -Lucario (Air tech for you) -Sceptile (Air tech for you) -Suicune (Air tech for you) Empoleon (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Gengar -Braixen -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Blaziken (0) -Pikachu Libre (Air tech for them) -Croagunk (+8) -Sceptile (+8) -Suicune (+8) Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Decidueye -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (+8) -Aegislash (0) -Mega Gengar (0) -Machamp (+8) -Garchomp (+8) Chandelure (25F)- Beats: -Gardevoir -Charizard Clashes: -Darkrai (+8) -Aegislash: Shield Form (0) Suicune (21F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir -Aegislash: Shield Form -Chandelure -Charizard Clashes: -Blaziken (-8) -Pikachu (+8) -Lucario (-8) -Pikachu Libre (Air tech for them) -Croagunk (0) -Sceptile (0) -Braixen (Air tech for them) -Empoleon (-8) Weavile (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Charizard Clashes: -Decidueye (-8) Charizard (25F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Gardevoir Clashes: -Aegislash: Shield Form (Air tech for you) -Gengar (Air tech for you) Garchomp (17F)- Beats: -Darkrai -Blaziken -Pikachu -Lucario -Gardevoir -Pikachu Libre -Aegislash: Shield Form -Croagunk -Sceptile -Gengar -Braixen -Empoleon -Chandelure -Suicune -Weavile -Charizard Clashes: -Scizor (0) -Aegislash (-8) -Decidueye (+8) -Machamp (0) -Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo (-8)
  6. Guard Break Moves: Their Scaling & Advantage

    Thank you for these! I'll go add them now.
  7. Hello. When being offensive, or having a back-and-forth game of projectiles and pokes, your opponent's shield will start to wither and become red. Giving you the opportunity to go for a guard break. But the question then arises, "What moves at my disposal are capable of guard breaking?" The important part is to be ready to respond to any guard break move that you can land with your most optimal combo starter, as each guard break move gives you a different frame window before the opponent is able to recover. Combining frame data knowledge as well as landing a low scaling guard break move will give you the most reward out of a guard break. Listed below are the moves that can guard break, the frame window before the opponent is able to recover, and the scaling it provides. There's also additional information as to what moves in Field Phase are able to guard break. The four universal moves that can guard break would be: -The last hit of a character's Homing Attack -Homing Attack: Charge -Counter Attack -Counter Attack: Charge Darkrai- Field Phase: fY j.X Duel Phase (Note: Cannot guard break while in Bad Dreams Rising): 8Y -

  9. Special Cancelable Tick Throws

    Updated. Thank you.
  10. Hello. A tick throw is the action of an attack that is followed up with an immediate grab attempt afterwards. Characters with command grabs benefit from this as they're able to incorporate them into their special cancelable moves. Each tick throw scenario has a "Block" and/or "Hit" tag next to it. "Block" means this setup will work if the opponent continues to stay in a blocking state. "Hit" is for when the opponent starts to hold block after getting hit by the attack. More commonly known as a reset.

  11. Night Slash Reset Route

    Really boils down to getting used to the rhythm of each 2Y, as well as leaving a good enough gap between your input of 5Y into your first 2Y. The best advice I can give is to keep at it. Landing a normal Night Slash (all three hits) on a grounded opponent is the favorable outcome for this route. When it comes other scenarios (anti-air, tipper, etc.), Its safer to just go with the bnb's. I do understand the individual amount of 2Y reps needed can make this pretty tedious to land consistently on the whole cast. Being able to remember this kind of vague information is needed if you plan to use this route in your gameplay.
  12. Hello. As shown in the footage above, aerials that are done from an 8Y Icicle Crash have reduced landing lag, allowing for links that weren't possible before. Something else too is that 8Y > j.A > 3B > j.Y on block puts you in a consistent +8 state. Landing a normal j.Y on block has inconsistent results since Its based on both the individual hits of j.Y that connect with their block. The frame state varies from being +4, 0, and -4. 8Y > j.A > 3B > j.Y can only be done on specific characters. Shorter characters will cause a crossover jump. Because of both the j.Y and your now improved landing lag you'll be able to cover cases of immediate CA's after your 8Y on block.

    Hello. Whether getting out of a pressure scenario or throw crushing, landing Night Slash as a combo starter doesn't have the best "Damage = PSP" ratio. Usually using 6-12 PSP total based on which route you choose. Even then it is still difficult to break 200 damage. With this route, you will only have to use 3 PSP. Being able to cover multiple options, put yourself in a guaranteed +8 scenario, and have a much longer duel phase. Because of individual character hurtboxes, the amount of 2Y's you're able to do varies. Darkrai - 2 Blaziken - 4 Pikachu/Pikachu Libre - 2 Lucario - 4 Gardevoir - 7 Scizor - 6 Aegislash - 1 Croagunk - 2 Sceptile - 3 Gengar - 2 Decidueye - 2 Machamp - 2 Braixen - 5 Empoleon - 1 Mewtwo/Shadow Mewtwo - 5 Chandelure - 1 Suicune - 6 Weavile - 2 Charizard - 4 Garchomp - 4

  15. Hello. Weavile is a very pressure based character. In order to keep applying pressure, you need to have good momentum and always be out on top of your opponent's actions. Counter attacks (Reversals) relieve the opponent of Weavile's pressure, requiring Weavile to build back up the momentum they had before. The nice thing about Weavile's pressure is that you have an array of frame scenarios you can put yourself into. An example would be when Weavile's 6[X] hits the opponent's block. 6[X] is +4 on block, but can blockstring into Fake Out (+8 on block). Because of this, Weavile is able to choose frame scenarios that are beneficial in both applying pressure while at the same time covering reversal options. Here's a list of those frame scenarios.
