Im pretty sure no one’s created one of these yet so here goes. Also im confident that this topic does need its own thread, if im wrong please delete and ill post in general Juri gameplay thread. (Most other character threads have a dedicated thread to option selects)
Im sure most people know what option selects are, if not lolultima made a great option-select video here:
Essestially, what this thread is for is for us to post Juri Option-Selects. She’s a new character so not much is out there yet. But i can start it off with one against Backdashers and teleporters.
This option select needs to be set-up from an untechable knockdown mainly against people who like tobackdash a lot on wake-up and teleporters. You need to either sweep them or back throw them for the unteched knockdown. If you forward throw them, they will end up too far away.
Okay as they are waking up do a meaty jumping (edit) hard kick and almost at the same time input the motion for EX pin-wheel. If they wake-up block, they simply block your meaty jump in. If they backdash, they get caught with the EX pinwheel. If they teleport, the active frames on the EX pin-wheel will still catch them in teleport recovery. If you do it right this will catch them if they teleport in either direction.
This option select isn’t entirely safe against the cast. Characters with really reliable reversible and ex moves may beat you depending on the priority of the move over EX pin-wheel. Ill make a list of who this does and doesn’t work on later but for now everyone start working on other option-selects.
Akuma-just don’t do it against akuma, the only thing it works on is backdash and teleport, U1 catches juri, and dps trade at best, forward teleport is safe as well
Dudley-both ultras will be blocked, ex dp wins all other dps get stuffed, and ex machine gun blow whiffs
E. Honda-ex headbutt beats it clean, and ex buttslam
