Note: This(And any guide I personally make) are all community driven. I am not responsible for your losses if something is incorrect. I am human, I make mistakes. If something doesnt work or you have something to add let me know and I will fix it immediately.​

Seeing as Catwoman's evade is said to be useless by some, I wanted to do some investigation myself. This will be a work in progress for a while so bare with me.

(H)=High evade, 3 frame startup and 10 frame recovery
(L)=Low evade, 1 frame startup and 10 frame recovery

How I am testing this: I am testing some of these but most I am finding with frame data. Since evade has a 10 frame recovery and 1(fastest combo starter) is 6f, that means the special has to have about 17 or 18 frames of recovery to punish. Although it most likely won't be practical unless it is around 20f of recovery, due to different times of using evade and other variables.

NOTE: Unless Noted you cannot evade entire strings

I'm not sure why not many people like this character... I think she is awesome! love the long range on her whip and her MB catdash! I have only been using evade to get away from specials but now I should work on using it as a means of punishing. Thanks for the tech

Other than going back and adding a few air moves I am done with the specials.

If any of you have any specific strings that you want me to test out, ill get those first. Otherwise ill just go down the character select screen again.

Evade punishes? And people dont like her because she takes skill and has a high learning curve.

Dodge a projectile like harley's pop pop, and dash to punish. Or evade a command grab with low evade and punish with 112 into combo.

He means doing a punish AFTER the evade.
 
Are you using default controller preset? Cause i been trying it that way and it's not working... when i'm inputting half circle by sliding my thumb across d b u then 2 it's registering d db b ub u 2 according to practice mode... The timing seems to be very tight on it

Maybe instead try it without sliding your fingers, actually input down then back then up 2. It is hard for me to explain how I do it though, just kind of...do it lol.
 
what you using to play the game? Stick, hitbox, ps3/xbox contoller? I tried it for about 30 min and got it a few times but never in a real match yet... will needa do more practice soon

Xbox controller, analog stick.

Once you get it down it will become second nature to you.

My friend plays deathstroke, and we tried testing the evade today.
the high evade works 100%, and we all love getting scratches fast... But i cant seem to do the right input for the low one?
db2 and just when she enters the animation, press up. is that right? am i being noobie and doing something wrong, or?

Yeah its really hard to explain. What I do is after the db press up and 2 at the same time. Or down back up 2, either one works for me.

Still touching up a few things, but still good progress.

Remember that if you want a string or anything you see not up there tested, let me know and it will take priority.
