Punishing Yoga Snipers, by Jav1ts and xaaz


#1

Jav1ts and I were talking and he thought it would be a good idea to share some strategy with the community in regard to dealing with Yoga Snipers for those that might be having trouble with the matchup. So, we threw together a little video demonstrating a few different ways you can punish him using several different characters.

From the desk of Jav1ts: The purpose of the video was to show that Dhalsim is actually punishable by certain characters at certain distances so it’s not really necessary to show every possible punish. My aim was to inspire new ideas so that everyone can do better in the Dhalsim matchup which for many people can be very frustrating. Good luck finding more punishes with your main character.

Punishes Used:

Midscreen:
Balrog - Reversal Fwd Smash
Balrog - Reversal Super (PPKK)
Cammy - Reversal RH Super
Gen - Delayed Super*
Gen - Delayed Ultra*
Gen - Delayed Super, Ultra*
Ryu - Reversal Fierce Super
Seth - Reversal/Delayed Fierce Super
Seth - Reversal/Delayed Ultra

Near Corner, Corner:
Balrog - Reversal Fwd Smash, Super (KPKK)
Balrog - Reversal Fwd Smash, Ultra (KPKK)
Chun-Li - Delayed Ultra**

  • Hold forward for a very brief moment after the second qcf before activating.
    ** Delay activating briefly so that Sim lands into the flurry of kicks.

The Art of Punishing

Good job, a lot of this stuff also works on Akuma’s jump-back airballs.


#3

I would love to see some here for Bison and Vega. Since Dhalsim is a pain in the ass for me.

Though Bison seems to be able to headstomp them in the face when it comes to this because of the tracking.


#4

Hey, great stuff; can always use more ways to get in on Sim (and/or land Chun’s ultra)!


#5

As a Ryu player, I’m always looking to land the Super when I have it. I’ll sit there and do crouch block just to invite Sim players into a jumping fierce. Problem is that I’ve never landed it, the EX SRK always comes out instead :confused:


#6

I think Bison could punish with any special except devil’s reverse. Slide would probably work too.

I play Rose, and while i can’t remember if I’ve used ultra to punish the sniper, I’m pretty sure it would. Rose’s super is just like Ryu’s so that’s a guarantee. If I want to think really complex, then maybe it’s possible for Rose to dash forward and do her :r::hk:. or maybe soul throw/spiral.


#7

I think EX Psycho crusher gets across quick enough too. I know it does for Gouki players who jump back air fireball XD loves punishing them for it mwahah


#8

Vega can reversal ultra about 90% of the time. Only at some specific distances the ultra will whiff. Xaaz and I will demonstrate this in the next video… stay tuned.


#9

good job on the info + video xaaz and javits!!!


#10

make that a 100%, as long as your just not totally at the edge of the screen and time it right.


#11

akuma - ultra


#12

great job on this… would love to see what honda can do to punish yoga snipers… its really hard for us honda players to get in.


#13

BizzyRok, Akuma cannot reversal ultra if he is hit by a max range yoga sniper. However, he can reversal ultra from slightly closer than max range.

SlappySlaps, Honda can EX headbutt from slightly closer than the max range yoga sniper. He can also reversal ultra but again, has to be closer.

The purpose of the video was to show that Dhalsim is actually punishable by certain characters at certain distances so it’s not really necessary to show every possible punish.

#14

Might be an idea to make the list bigger as we go since its here anyway now?

Anyway ,

**C.Viper: **can do EX thunderknuckle to punish, and I believe if tied correctly do her ultra, visual cue to this is if Sim crumbles and isn’t ‘floating’ otherwise ultra will whiff.


#15

wow, you guys must hate dhalsim!
“yogaaaaa… SNIPER!”


#16

Is there any way you can show your setup on this, bud?


#17

Scrap that, after attempting it a dozen times in training mode it would appear you can indeed do EX thunderknuckle to punish (it has to hit when Sim almost touches the ground again), but a ultra is impossible since by the time Sim hits the ground again he blocks. ^^


#18

Are there any short range punishes you can use in midscreen? For chars like Rufus, Fei, Dan and Zangief etc?


#19

blanka - up ball?


#20

If the distance is right could you aim for a 1 hit EX TK while he’s still in the air then Ultra as he’s falling. I know for a fact that if EX TK gets only 1 hit in the air the person is in a juggle state and can be Ultra’d afterwards.
