Skarlet's Corner Game
Skarlet doesn't access any new combos per say in the corner. All of the ones used misdscreen for universal and Red Mist can be subbed in the corner for roughly the same damage... Except for the RESTAND she has! So Skarlet normally doesn't get to mix up the opponent much but in the corner she gets a 3 way guess from her Blood Trail. Simply end any launching combo(likely with KB D2 OR 212) with DB3 Amp and you will restand the opponent at +24 hit adv. Given this, Skarlet can go low with B12,Grab, or Overhead with B2. This is such a great tool to have for her because it makes her very good in a department where she more or less isn't so hot. It's not amazing but she has it and it is very useful so use that if you would like!Our very own @Eddy Wang has been making great content on not only this restand, but Skarlet in general! Be sure to check these out when you can!
Any Starter , 4,4 xx DB3 Amp / Mix Up of your choice
General Skarlet Gameplan
Skarlet is one of the premier zoners in the entire game but that's not all she offers. She has good buttons in F4,B1,F2,and S2. Standing 2 is a high, but it offers great anti air ability and goes into her 212 which is her main whiff punisher. F4 gives her a mid that enchances her midscreen game immensily and should be used often. Be wary of flawless blockers as Skarlet is one of the easiset characters to FB. To counter you can stagger and throw, stagger and block, or mix up your pressure with 21 xx of your choice(be wary of gaps in pressure). In the corner she becomes somewhat serviceable as a deent mixup character with B2 & B1. You can use the restand tech menoned above to show your opponent you have other ways to beat them as well. All in all she's a machine at controlling space and when you mix up her zoning she is very hard to deal with in the right hands. As far as characters that can teleport on her, just play it smart and keep it in neutral. Try not to whiff unnecessarily and get punished. Make them come to you!
