Ok so I’ve been playing with Cody lately and i’ve noticed he has some great pokes and normals that propel him forward to keep up the pressure, mainly the forward medium punch and crouch medium kick. However, I noticed something about his crouch medium kick. It seemed like everytime i got in or kept up with my opponent with it i get hit afterwards unless i blocked. So i checked the frame data and noticed it was -6 on block and -3 on hit! So why use this? I mean, if Cody players have to block after it because of its frame DISadvantage, no point of using it right because their attackstrings are gonna push you away.
Sorry if my question/rant seems newbish, it was just my observation from playing cody for a couple of days.
