    His defense options aren't terrible. His teleport seems invincible on wakeup and so does his anti-air uppercut, which doesn't seem to have any freaking recovery if blocked.

    I like his EX water gun as a wakeup. It has armor and pushes the opponent away half a screen. But as an anti-air, I prefer his EX Chuck Norris kick. Absorb the incoming jump punch or kick, smack, combo.

    I also hit this combo numerous times yesterday. It's a waste of meter but it's cool. Basically I tried to emulate the combo we saw on the trailers.

    (j.p) 1, 2, f+4, dash, 4, 3 XX d,b+4, 1, 1 XX d,b+2, d,f+3, redirect as high and away from you as possible, X-Ray, d,b+3

    I think it's 47%, but can't remember if this number is because of the j.p or not.
    Ms. Fortune is great. Everybody likes a little head action every now and then.

    Is there any reason to be using 1, 1 in combos? 4, 3 has better damage and it can be used the same way as 1, 1.

    I can give you an excellent reason: you're playing online and lag prevents you from timing 4,3.

    I definitly thing 4,3 is his best combo starter for punishment and general usage as it doesn't scale horribly and leads into any of his specials. although i do feel like it is only to his benefit to mixup his offense with <-2, 1+2 just to keep on pressure and not become too predictable even though to be honest there really isnt any other need to use his other strings besides 4,3 but its an option

    Agreed. b+2,1+2 is really good also due to the overhead properties.

    a couple of juggles i like use are:
    1,2 ->4 dash 1,2->4 dash 4,3xx water bubble, 4,3xx lightning xx super kick, 1,1xx teleport 37% ( u can also sub in <2, 1+2 into this combo if u hit an overhead)
    4,3 xx water bubble 4,3xx geyser, 4,3xx geyser, 4,3xx lightning xx superkick, 1,1 teleport 36%
    1,2->4 dash 1,2->4 dash 4,3xx water bubble, 4,3xx lightning xx superkick xx x-ray (wait until the are about to make contact with you) xx geyser 46% ( <-2, 1+2 can also be subbed for 1,2-> in this combo)

    punishers:
    4,3 ex water bubble, 4,3 lightning xx superkick, xx geyser xx teleport
    4,3 water bubble, 4,3 ex lightning, superkick, xx geyser, xx teleport
    (corner only) 4,3 xx water bubble, 4,3 xx geyser, 4,3xx lightning, 4,3 geyser 43%

    just a few combos i like

    I started out with basic launcher combos then tried to see what could be added cause i was without the interwebs for a while, but both the top post and mine have some pretty good bnb's you'll probably use the ones that start with the 4,3 the most as it will be your main poking tool

    cool beans man. im finding that rain has no real way to open up a defensively minded opponent, while this is nothing new to this mk its especially hard for rain who mostly resorts to having to punish his opponent to really get anything. going might have wait until some patches to really have a chance in high level
