Now, I know this move is craptacular and nobody uses it except for newbies who haven’t fully realized the consequences of using such a move and missing OR those who are very stubborn like myself that love to land this attack. The only times I’ve seen people use this attack seem to be at the start of a round just for kicks but yeah, we all know what happens because it’s so easy to read. So, exactly how do you use such a move?
The most reliable way I’ve managed to land it on someone is after . . . Rolling Thunder. It’s not such a wise tactic but I often use the ex version for chip to finish someone off but you have to learn very quick how much you do because I’ve lost a match or two by not realizing how much it really did. Now, the useful way of using thunderbolt after U1 is either switching between short and forward version. Short goes in front while forward goes behind which has tagged quite a few people. Thunderbolt is also FADC . . able so it can be used in a safer manner but it is very expensive. In fact, some moves can hit you even if you FADC out of it like ultra’s which really suck.
Some of you might have already seen thunderbolt working on Blanka’s ultra 2. Ex works from mid screen to full screen distance even if Blanka uses anti-air version. Are there are any more uses for this strange move?
