    ok, so I'm a solid Lion player (been a user since VF3), i'm not anything spectacular in my oppinion but good enough to hold my own in a fight and not get completely mopped.
    anyways i don't know how many people on here are hardcore Lion users but i know there has to be some experienced and advanced players on here that could share at least some wisdom on how better to use Lion and be a more efficient fighter. i.e. some battle tactics or fundamentals to the character that are essential to furthering development as a better VF'er

    Oh and could someone please send me a link where I can find some good chibita vids? i would really appreciate that.

    I'm not a lion player, myself, but here's a thread Maddy put together

    It's got vids for EVERY character, so I'm sure you'll be able to find a Chibita video or two in there /versus/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Good luck and happy hunting!

    heres a question for whoever plays lion... I saw chibita on the Evo DVD and Jide from some matches Ive gotten from somewhere start lion's catch throw and then use /versus/images/commands/uf.gif or /versus/images/commands/df.gif /versus/images/commands/p.gif+/versus/images/commands/k.gif+/versus/images/commands/g.gif into another throw. I cant seem to find the merit in that and was wondering what it is

    The only reason I can think of is to overcome opponent's throw escapes, since Lion's regular catch throw followups can be escaped by b+P+G and f+P+G. Suppose you could go for a neutral throw after uf/df+P+K+G, or for df,df+P+G. But more often you can see people doing Renkan Sakusui after the catch, or db+P+K or something like that.
