Introduction

Suicune is a bulky fighter with tools to help him fight within close quarters or at a range. His strengths include rewarding anti-airs, strong pokes, and utilizing cancels for a powerful mix-up game. In field phase, Suicune has great defensive moves and projectiles that keep opponents on their toes. In duel phase, he can switch between solid zoning to make enemies approach, or bait opponents up close for rewarding confirms. Overall, Suicune is a sturdy character that excels when you have your game-plan ready.

Despite his strengths, Suicune does come with some weaknesses. In general, he requires taking risks in order to deal sizable amounts of damage.

In duel phase, Suicune's quicker attacks lack reward so he must win a series of small exchanges or go for risky reads.
