    Trying custom combos

    A lot of character have good ways of setting up more creative combos, Sceptile, Scizor and both Mewtwos come to mind. Antwerp on twitter has some pretty good ones, and Thulius just posted a like 20 second long field phase combo not too long ago. I also found a pretty good darkrai one Check out @Zeledon35’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/Zeledon35/status/1017261114311114752?s=09 Check out @AntwerpDX’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/AntwerpDX/status/1013778166077218819?s=09 Check out @AntwerpDX’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/AntwerpDX/status/978727638612115457?s=09 I got you some examples, not necessarily the ones I talked about however ( Couldn't find them rip)

    Gardevoir's Chip Damage Values

    I'm surprised no one else had taken the time to do this before, but here is a google sheet documenting all of Gardevoir's chip values, in and out of Synergy Burst, and field specifics as well. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rdwehp8fYaxrqOijoWiG5WRXMR0hlySed0ylT_ARTuY/edit?usp=sharing Enjoy the information, and see you in Ferrum.

    Moonblast cancel: Uses and data

    As of DX, Gardevoir can now cancel Moonblast before the beam comes out, which leaves her minus but unpunishable. I was unsure of what the data actually was, so I tested it. What's important to know is that the data changes depending of if you're in or out of burst. After further testing, I determined, with some help, the following: Out of Burst Cancel -16 In Burst Cancel -8 HOWEVER, it is extremely important to note that cancelling moonblast still puts you in a 50/50 situation, as cancelling into an action such as jumping or countering lets you cancel the dash earlier than if you had buffered block or an attack. So what CAN we use Moonblast cancel for, outside of said 50/50? - Throw crushing into a reset, can be useful to get out of the corner and put them in it with a future sight on top of them. - Finishing combos into a reset, useful if close to capping out on Phase Shift Points. - Eating weak projectiles and be able to not commit to the beam afterwards. Overall very useful technique to keep in mind, can't wait to see how players use it. Thanks to Double and Drakonzeta for the help they provided, as well as Jet (not Jetsplit) for making me look further into this. < 3

    Decidueye early impressions

    I've been playing nothing but Decidueye since DX launched, and while I'm no pro player, I thought that writing about my early thoughts about this character could help others, so here I am. Decidueye, as a whole, seems extremely solid, and I don't think this is going to fade as time goes by. He has a LOT of strengths that really stand out. Unfortunately, knowledge of his frame data is very scarce right now, so I can't really talk about that. Speaking of strengths, let's look into them: Pros - Amazing air mobility, that has to be respected because of air grab - Good walk speed, which allows him to play footsies better and whiff punish with 6A - Can check lows really well with a lot of his moves (6XX, 8X) - Has both a frame 9 grab and frame 9 attack - Rewards knowledge of the game well - Ghost forward dash and reversal in 4A, which can let you punish reckless offense with ease - can easily reposition with Soaring stance This doesn't mean that he's a perfect character, however, as Decidueye has a few problems of his own: Cons - Soaring stance can be very awkward to use, and locks him out of his regular jumping options - Sucker Punch's CA frames and iframes are really weird, you can get hit out them rather easily if it's a multihit - Zoning seems below average, slow and predictable projectiles with a ton of recovery, the only fast one is his (Y) - His 7/8/9A oki is very weird to setup, and predictable. Not as strong because of super long recovery frames - Combos can be hard to execute, opponents fall out of them easily if not done right. Overall, I think Decidueye will be very strong in the meta, and I can't wait to see what he can do in tournament.

    How did you end up with your Gamertag?

    I was looking for something truly original, like a second name, and that sounded cool. Something that would never be taken and be my own. I like how it sounds and the spellng, and it's stuck with me for years. I was also told that it is close to the dutch translation for Aristocratic Fox, "Vos van Adel". Which wasn't planned, but hey that's pretty neat.

    Gardevoir 1.5 buffs thread

    I am making this thread to try and put all the japanese twitter videos in one place, thus making it easier to discuss them. Speaking of... Buffed 5Y The additional range acts as more of a quality of life change than anything, probably will be most useful for guaranteeing a followup after j.X, instead of sometimes whiffing. 8X Buffs This clip shows us approximately how much time you have to set up on their wakeup after 8X knocks them down, which is barely enough for a psychic. Overall extremely good buff, as it allows us to play to our strengths more, and 8X not pushing them into midrange where we are weakest is very welcome. The next clip also shows us the new range at which the enemy is forced to air tech after 8X connects with an aerial foe. Once again, very useful buff that'll let us set up easier. Counter Buff This one is similar to the 8X buff, where upon phase shift, CA forces the enemy to air tech very far away. We unfortunately lose an oki opportunity but gives us greater stage control, something Garde definetly needs. Buffed FP Teleport (PRAISE DA LORD) Being able to teleport in all directions is going to help us get out of sticky situations much easier, as well as screw over tracking. VERY GOOD BUFF THANK YOU. J.Y angles Also showcased in that clip, the j.Y angling will prove very useful to use vs far away opponents, as well as the fact that it hard knockdowns. FP f.Y This is the only one I have found so far, will update once I see more.
