I’m starting to really like Yuri in P-Groove. Even though I’m not that great at parrying, she is one of the better characters to learn how to parry with, and she is quite effective in P-Groove.
Here’s some reasons why she is great in P Groove.
-After parrying, there are many things Yuri can do. Shes great at comboing after the parry, and many of her moves just look cool! You can do a medium punch and then a double Chou-Uppa after a parry for a 5 hit combo. I usually do this after I parry a low jump or a hurricane kick. Or, if you parry a poke or a fireball, if you have enough time you can do a slap attack if your too far to do anything else.
Yuri’s air grab is good. Yuri can parry in the air into an air grab.
Many of Yuri’s moves start with the forwards movement anyway, so they are easy to perform after a parry and you just may “luck parry” some moves.
-Yuri is short, so if a ducking parry misses, you still might duck the attack completely.
-Yuri builds meter quickly
-Yuri’s hop and low jump are good. Many of her attacks knock the opponent down too, so Yuri is effective at wakeup games and corpse hopping.
-Yuri is just plain CUTE! I love her taunt, and her slapping attacks are humiliating.
Although Yuri doesn’t do much damage and takes a lot of damage. She is still a good character. She just takes a lot of patience and strategy to win with.
