I realized the other day that my worst matchup with Sakura is against Rose. I’m having trouble getting in on her.
Her normals seem better, period. She can keep Sakura away on the ground using safe pokes that outrange Sakura’s.
I’ve yet to find any jump normals that can beat or trade her neutral or j.forward HP.
Soul Throw seems to beat everything.
Forget about zoning as her superior fireballs + reflect far outclass Sakura’s range.
Anyways, I found I am pretty much only able to turtle and wait for Rose to make mistakes. I usually play against my pal who’s great with the fundamentals and he pretty much shuts me down with soul throw + her ground normals. Her c.mp > lk soul drill is safe… I really have no idea what to do. I would’ve posted this in matchups but the thread doesn’t seem organized at all.
