Strategies

Basics

Anti Air options

Geese Howard focuses mainly with his hcf+B counter for Anti Air which deals great damage. In exchange of this, Geese has some really crappy Anti Air.

DB+P

Only really covers directly above Geese's Head has very little horizontal range. Useful for crossup attempts

Standing A

Only good for catching really deep jump attacks

Close C

Unless you have your opponent cornered. You won't see this often because it has a really short range to come out.

Raging Storm

Covers alot of area around Geese. If you can get down the pretzel motion. It's a useful AA for when you have a super or red life. Geese's only real useful AA other than his hcf+B counter.

Poking Tools

Far A

Geese's essential poke. Has 2 frame startup and even can hit Crouching opponent's like Chonshu/Chonrei. Can be chained into St. B which also hits Crouching Chonshu/Chonrei.and a F+C if hit high to put your opponent in a different plane.The F+C part needs to be close to the opponent to connect. Good for catching whiffed attacks

Close A

3 frame startup really close range high poke. Leads into Geese's dangerous combos. Whiffs on crouching opponents.

Close B/ Far B

Far B is good for catching whiffed attacks and can be chained into another St. B which also hits Crouching Chonshu/Chonrei and a F+C if hit high to put your opponent in a different plane. The F+C part needs to be close to the opponent to connect Close B is very much the same but less range.

Crouching D

Your Standard Sweep

Crouching A

Close range poke that can be used for sweep pressure and link into st. B pressure.

Crouching B

Close range low poke that can be chained into another St. B which also hits Crouching Chonshu/Chonrei and a F+C if hit high to put your opponent in a different plane.The F+C part needs to be close to the opponent to connect
