Ok first of all, i usually like playing against any character even bad match ups like Zangief, but when it comes to Gouken its when the frustration begins. The round starts by Goukens fireball spam, then when i want to J.HK or use Dash punch he sits there turtling waiting to do his Counter (b, d, db +p ) and knocks me to the end of the screen. Then he starts whiffing fireballs again, and when i get close he tries to use the counter again, all he does is sit in the corner.
Is there a certain strategy i can follow against a turtling Gouken? How i make an advantage on him sitting in the corner? Is there a certain move that can put him in trouble?
Some tactics i use are: (i) Headbutt on fireball.
(ii) Turn punch on fireball.
(iii) Trick him with low dashes.
One of my best tactics is to try hit him early, and when he sits back and fireballs, i could see them coming from all the way back and jump them. Diagonal fireballs pass under my head since i see them coming. Then i wait for his (f,d,df + K) and i usually counter with a headbutt.
What do u do against Gouken?
