I sifted through the Matchup thread and found nothing concrete on how to fight Chun Li so I started a dedicated thread against her. Many times people asking on how to fight chun li in that thread where not responded to, and I predict a lot of people having trouble fighting her.
If my observations are wrong then let me know. I keep losing to decent Chun Li’s that know the match up.
Chun Li has the following advantages over Dhalsim.
-Her close up game rapes Dhalsim. Her c.HK has priority over most of Dhalsims moves. She is definitely in control up close.
-After her flip over roundhouse, she can either lighting legs for good chip damage, or opt to mix it up with jabs and a throw. None of Dhalsims counter pokes are fast enough to interupt her. Back dashing i think gets hit with lightng legs.
-Jab and Roundhouse will not only knock you out of IAT, but will put you at close range with her. Too risky to use that tool.
Anti Air moves b.mp and b.HK lose to her j.HK and trade at best.
she can jump over your long range keep away moves with ease.
How do I beat this character?
I’ve managed to barely squeak by by keeping her at long range with yoga fires and s.HK and MK sometimes, but she can jump around them if my timing/prediction isn’t perfect.
