haha ok might as well just post it here. Just to preface, I barely get to fight Remy players, so I’m no expert on this matchup by a long shot. I have played guys like DaggerG and Pierrot before though for what its worth…
I feel like the first important thing is to remember Remy is a low tier character with defense and stun actually as low as yours. There’s no reason to rush anything here. All your combos really hurt, and almost all of his don’t really hurt. Remy wins by keepaway, so if you go after him and keep running into LoV’s and his pokes you’re playing his game. I think its best to play cautious and wait for your big opportunities cause they pay off a lot. If you have a significant enough life lead, theres no reason to keep going after him. With your air hadous, demon flips, air tatsu’s, you can play keepaway just as well as him.
If you need to close to gap on Remy, I think its important to approach in varying ways so its harder for him to defend. RH Demon flip on reaction to an LoV works pretty well. Unless they are prepared for it you’ll probably land right in his face with a mixup for him to deal with. If you want a more cautious approach, UOH moves you forward and dodges low LoV’s, while you duck under high LoV’s. I feel like the good ol SJ to close the gap is the riskiest way to close the gap in this situation. You’d think practically it’d be better than demon flip cause you can parry but I feel like the slower startup on SJ makes it easier for Remy to anti air.
And yeah, I think its better to not parry LoV’s sometimes. Since Gouki is a shoto, forward parry actually moves you backwards, so its kinda counter productive.
If Remy is attacking you, theres a couple things you should keep in mind…
-It’s hard for Remy to do big damage off a low attack. In the corner he can hit confirm low LoV to sa2, but otherwise c.lk isn’t really hit confirmable, c.mk doesn’t lead into anything, and c.rh is parry bait.
-Remy’s offense is pretty poke oriented. If he isn’t up close, you can parry forward without fear of him canceling into anything. Also with anybody who abuses poke strings, sometimes just a random srk or tatsumaki can fuck their whole offense up
-Remy is gonna go for throw more in the corner since the pay off is better.
-If Remy does high LoV on your wakeup you can do c.mk on your wakeup and beat it clean
That’s all I can think of for now
