Moves List

Normal Moves

Move Startup Active Recovery Block Adv Damage
Properties Notes
8 1 18 - 960 - Slow jab that is not remotely active, to his credit it hits hard
6 4 20 - 480 - crouch kick
9 2 15 - 2964 - Double hit punch, hits hard, good for combos and blockstrings
9 1 15 - 1716 - Hits low two times
14 0 19 - - - Polimar's alternate dash, when close to an opponent it'll crossup. So you can do A -> B -> 2B -> P -> 6B -> A for a dirty crossup. And given it's a new combo your partner will refresh.
15 2 28 - 2720 - Hits hard for a heavy attack, has a little vertical reach but good horizontal
13 7 27 - 2400 Low/Hard Knockdown Sweep, has a little range, nothing insane
15 2 32 - 2480 Soft knockdown/ f5-10 invincible Polimar turns and gives a backfist. Has invincibility but you'll probably never see it, follow up with Razor Kicks or A Destruction fist'
11 5 29 - 2400 Launcher Good damage for a launcher
7 8 17 - 960 Overhead Horizontal Jab
10 9 24 - 1840 Overhead Horizontal Kick
12 5 30 - 3040 Overhead Upward Angle Kick, not great for grounded opponents

Special Moves

Move Startup Active Recovery Block Adv Damage
Properties Notes
Hurricane Destruction Fist
- - - - 3375/4050/4725 WallBounce Poli does a two hit combo and launches the opponent towards the wall. Can follow up with a single dash. Can be cancelled to and from with one emblem
Razor Chain Kicks
15 - - - 3108 - Poli does 4 sets of kicks. Be careful as there is a gap in the second kick, enemies can throw or punish if they are aware of the gap. Can be cancelled to and from with one emblem
3-Stage Reaction Kick
9 - - - - Hard Knockdown (on last kick) Yes, all three inputs need to be done for the attack to complete. Okayish anti-air, can be used for relaunches.Can be cancelled into with one emblem Useable in air
Storm Kamae

17 - - - 45 - Build the emblems you see at the bottom (or ducks if you're in the know). After building an emblem Polimar can perform a few actions.
  • Doing nothing will set polimar back to neutral, There is no defensive option here so this is the most dangerous
  • A will cause polimar to 2C. This can be cancelled with baroque or into another special
  • B will perform 6C. This can be cancelled with baroque or into another special
  • C will make polimar dash up and perform this forward throw.

After building an emblem polimar gains the ability to cancel specials. With three emblems, if I wanted to take a route of Razor-kicks -> razor kicks -> Storme Kanae -> Hurricane Destruction fist This would only be possible with two emblems minimum. All three emblems are required for Polimar's level 3

Super Moves

Move Startup Active Recovery Block Adv Damage
Properties Notes
Single handed Vacuum Spin
25+1 - - - 16518 (ground)
11966 (air)
Command Grab Polimar winds up for a grab and spins you in a hurricane. Highly avoidable on the ground, you can jump after the super flash. If done off a proper air reset it's unavoidable. His preferred super. Works on Giants Useable in air
Tenshin Polimar Drill
A+B -> A+B -> B+C
25+1 - - - 21558 HardKnockdown/OTG Polimar makes a pose and turns into a drilling car. Runs off screen then comes back. Can be landed after Hurricane Destruction Fist but cannot land the second part of the combo. Hits OTG. It's great for crossover combinations but that's about it. Avoid
Illusive Destructive Fist
(With 3 Emblems) 236XX
22+2 - - - 30117 - Polimar moves so fast you see after images of him. Fantastic super, great damage, has a few setups to reliably get it. Breaks the bridge. Works on Giants
