- Useful information regarding various routes

- General Information :
- (Combo Notation) When you see midscreen combos end in 5CC you can either decide to summon George or throw a lobelia/pole out onto the field, oki. Certain routes that end in 5CC can be extended provided you have the wind resources, these will be noted where appropriate.
Place Info here.

- 6A Route leading to 6A > 236A > Dash 3C > :
- When you hit your opponent with 6A, when you go into jc > j.A, you must delay the j.A for as long as possible.
- When you then go on to do j.B > j.C, you need to (ever so) slightly delay the j.C so when you land to do 6A again, your opponent is at just the right height to go into 236A > Dash 3C > etc.
- The Height you hit your opponent at varies between characters so be sure to hit training mode and experiment.
- These routes don't work on (Will list the characters asap).
- Video Example/Help/Guide [Will Add ASAP]

- Corner Ivy Combos :
- @Rele has put together a fantastic video named "Ivy Blossom Combo Tutorial". Please check it out as it highlights where things can be going wrong for those struggling to understand these routes and the video also provides alternative routes utilising Ivy Blossom.

Extra Post in case the above structure becomes saturated for whatever reason or to simply split up the Mix Up and Combo sections for easier post referencing.

##### Share on other sites

Just another reassurance post if lay outs change and whatnot. May use this as an example post or something.

Transcribed the CMV by Vartra that @gamester posted. When it hits youtube, I'll come back and add video example links for each of the combos

Hi, hi. I've been finalizing my personal CF Rachel notes since I'll be in Japan for KSB in about a month. As an addendum to the earlier combo video I transcribed, I've gone over recent N-O footage to see what sort of combos he does presently and thought I'd post them here since it might be useful. Not many changes. The most noteworthy thing you'll see different compared to the transcribed combo video is the change in corner enders. A lot of corner enders are now 5CC > 214C > 6A > 236A |> 3C > 22A. Still a work in progress at the moment though. I still need to find a CH 6A and j.3DB/C starter combos to add to the list. I also want to add a midscreen combo with the new ender N-O uses to stay close after 5CC by using 2 wind.

What do you need to do to make j.2DA j.B 5B 6A a reliably combo? 6A seems to whiff most of the time for me.

##### Share on other sites

Microdashing after jb for one. ...jb 665b 6a etc.

or, just use an extra wind. ...jb 5bd 6a etc.

Thanks, somehow didn't register for me that there was enough time for a dash. This actually works in CPEX (minus the 6A launcher), so it's possible to practice it on home versions right now.

If you liked that midscreen FC 5C combo, you may also like...

Corner FC 5C into j.C Loops. Unfortunately, Matsu dies before you can see the conclusion but I'm sure you can image how it ends

Are the 6a and 6aCH starter routes shown here still considered the best routes?

##### Share on other sites

Hey guys, just letting everyone know I've updated the Combo Theory section of Rachel's combo page on the wiki with some extra details for doing her combos that have come up while discussing stuff in the discord. If you're having trouble with anything, be sure to give it a read! I'll be sure to update it with more info and character specific stuff as we work out the details.

##### Share on other sites

Thanks for the detailed write-up. I'm quite curious about the "6A > jc delay j.A > j.B > j.C". I play on PC so I won't be able to try this out for quite a while. Is this something I can practise in CSE, since 6A floats there?

Also that Ivy Blossom corner combo looks wicked!

##### Share on other sites

Assuming you meant CPE instead of CSE, maybe? Wouldn't hurt to try. I know you can do the IAD routes from frog and sword Iris starters so long as you add a 2D wind to the j.Cs. The biggest thing you need to look out for that might cause this to drop is 6A not floating the opponent as much in CF. You also might have trouble at the j.C > land 6A part. You might be able to fix that with a 2D wind though.

You are the man thank you so much. Your commentary covers so many things that are hard to discern just from watching. I've been doing some practice myself and I have some questions.

In your format what is |> what is the difference from >  ?

Has anyone been able to try the corner j2a overhead starter that goes into 5cc > 6c (4hits) > jc > j236c > dash 5cc?

I cannot get that 5cc after the j236c dunk to connect for the life of me. My training dummy is ragna...is this route not doable on ragna? Tryna practice the double lobel tap on your head route.

It's no problem

To answer your questions, I use |> as a notation to show the next move needs to be linked from the preceeding normal. For your issue with the Ivy Blossom route form IOH j.2AD, I see you wrote you are doing j.236C. For the specific route that goes into 6C (4) > j.C, you actually need to do j.236B instead of j.236C as you would usually do.

Thanks for the response. Yup, that was it j236b made it doable. Just by saying that you probably saved me hours of time wasted trying to do it with j236c. I need to stabilize my timings rachel has always been unforgiving with timings (although BBCP was the most brutal version of rachel I've tried to learn...)...but at least now I can do it...

I guess, now Im a little confused because she has a double lobel kill combo that comes after finishing the j2ad overhead starter with 5b 5cc ... 5b 6a 4b delay 5cc > poison bats >  3c > etc..., how do I know when to do which one? or does it depend on the opponent?

##### Share on other sites

I dunno why but I managed to click with CP. I am struggling with this version of Rachel a lot more. Anyway, my most difficult problem is like the one you mentioned. The double lobelia corner combos.

Delay 5CC > Ivy > 3C[3]? > 236C > 8D > (MicroDash?) 6A > 236B > 9D > Ivy > (Lobelia should hit around here?) 3C > stuff I lose track because I struggle with these corner routes.

I must make it sound like a mess above but I think, my problem is I am rushing the 236C > 8D > 6A > 236B > 9D part and the 236B lobelia seed falling down needs to hit in sync while you are doing ivy input, so you can connect the 3C just after.

I also think or have a feeling there is more time to do the inputs for the 236C > 8D > 6A > 236B > 9D part than simply rushing it all. May be my real issue is getting the timing of Ivy > 3C to connect after I do 9D?

I can do etc. etc. 9D > catch with 5B > 6A > 4B > 5CC iirc.

Sorry, I thought I would post my thoughts on it here as I am still not understanding the corner routes either. (Also a bit tired, my apologies for posting my messy thoughts so late :/ )

-Challenge Mode 22 iirc is the one that features a double lobelia corner route? May be I need to spend more time in there.

Let's go over the combo again with the notation from the combo section and explanations. Some of it is already in the combo theory section but I'm going to expand on it

2B > 5B > 5CDC > 6C (1) > j.C > delay j.236C > 5B > 6A > 4B > delay 5CC > 214B > 3C > 236C slightly late 8D > microdash 6A > 236B9D > 3C > 214B > 3C > 632146C > 8D

4B > delay 5CC > 214B > 3C

In order to give yourself enough time to link 3C after throwing out the first Ivy Blossom in the combo, you'll need to delay the 5CC followup after 4B so that the opponent will wall splat higher up on the wall. This will make the opponent have to fall further and give you more time to link 3C. The timing on the delay is kind of specific in the sense that you need to hit them at the height of their ground bounce from 4B to get the highest possible wall splat. Furthermore, in order make sure they're high enough for 236C to connect, you should aim to do the quickest possible 3C from 214B. Play around with the timing until you get a feel for how quick you can do it

3C > 236C slightly late 8D

For this part of the combo, you'll want to do the 8D slightly late from 236C in order to float the opponent a bit and give you time to connect 6A to keep the combo going. Depending on how late you do your 8D, linking the microdash 6A will go from hard to pretty easy so keep that in mind if you're having trouble connecting 6A

Misc

eh, I didn't really make any sense of your issues with the 236B9D part but if you're having trouble syncing up, make sure you're doing 236B9D right so that it goes as far up as it should (You should be pressing 9D as the lobelia is coming out, not while Rachel is still in the startup) and cancel into 214B from 3C (2). Also, just so it's clear, both lobelias you fire should be coming down and hitting the opponent during the second Ivy Blossom summon, one after the other.

-Challenge Mode 22 iirc is the one that features a double lobelia corner route? May be I need to spend more time in there.

Do the exact wind timing for the first lobel that Ruroni said. I have also found the following to be crucial:

When you said 3c[3], 3 hits for that first 3c, yes this helped me stabilize, I've been doing all three hits now for that.

For the second lobel, I do it (the wind) much earlier than the first, during cannon animation startup. Its practically parallel to the second lobel for me.

As ruroni said, for that 3c during the 2 lobels tapping your opponent on the head, you may not want to do all 3 hits, you may need to recover sooner, the 2 lobels falling is like a time window, after they fall you need to be able to 3c again.

And for the record, i LIKED CP rachel, thematically, and aesthetically, I just found her timings to be soooo unforgiving and brutal. I hate how IAD happy this rendition of rachel is. I liked the grounded rachel more, it just made sense to me thematically (she looked like she was doing less physical work and the wind did its job), and don't even get me started on pumpkin. I miss pumpkin, i dont care if shes higher tier.

Also if any timing is driving me looney right now its mid screen lobel > sword iris > microdash 4b > 5cc ender.

We didn't have to microdash 4b 5cc so much before and now its like..standard :<

I think you basically cleared up my confusion, I was under the impression that you could:

5B > 5CC > 6C (1) > j.C > delay j.236C > 5B > 6A > 4B > delay 5CC > 214B > 3C > 236C slightly late 8D > microdash 6A > 236B9D > 3C > 214B > 3C > 632146C > 8D

Off of a j2ad overhead starter. Now I'm thinking this route is more for something like a 2b starter. for j2ad you gotta go the 5B-less route that lands and goes straight to 5cc then 6c[4hits]. I was thinking you could do either/or.

Thanks for your help as usual. You probably save me...hours of wasted time haha.

You can do one rep of iad loop too but that's not guaranteed from longer midscreen ranges

Note: This one is more difficult as it is a picture. Will try and sort something out asap.

in most of the frog drop setups you want to tap 2a to catch forward rolls

That's all I could find of the pinned messages on the Discord. Tried to get them archived here the best I could.
