Their game plan:Annoy the hell out of you
Strategy: Beat them at their own game
This match up can be frustrating because Taokaka has the ability to position both players in a neutral state, which is one of Carl's weaker areas. She can also 2A you out of vivace, which makes getting out of neutral state even more difficult. the most effective ways to get out of her poking game are back dashing or Instant Barrier. Do not jump around trying to catch Taokaka, this is exactly what the other player is trying to get you to do. Instead be patient, and don't try to outspeed her in the match. Brio and 8D are very good tools in this match up. Once taokaka gets in C-O-N state the match is done. However, be weary of a burst, because you DO NOT want to have her flying all over the screen again. Patience is key in this match up. Similar to El fuerte in Street fighter :P
Btw, 2C works wonders in this match, you would be surprised :D
Also, backdashing in neutral may bot always work so be cautious. If she uses a low, vivace as soon as possible before she resets in neutral again with 5D>B
