Of the three new Street Fighter 5 characters, Poison seems to be the fighter that the community is having the hardest time cracking here in the early stages of exploration.

She seems to have some pretty good potential, but perhaps is a bit more technical and comes with a higher learning curve than E. Honda or Lucia. That said, we are starting to see some players begin to shine with her.

We have a video of SF5 footage from エリート Elit3 that shows off a handful of various players using Poison and scoring perfect rounds with her.

These players are almost all Ultimate Grand Master rank online, so you know that they all have put a great deal of time into understanding the ins and outs of SF5. Anyone trying to learn the basics of this newcomer would do well to observe some of the strategies you see in this showcase.

With her whip as her go-to weapon, Poison does utilize a bit of keep-away and zoning in her standard gameplay. That doesn't mean, however, she only fights from afar as many of the warriors in this compilation routinely use the character's swing and subsequent frame trap pressure to score their spotless wins.

How strong do you feel like Poison is in SF5 at this point? Did you learn anything new or see anything especially captivating in the video? Let us know in the comments after you give it a watch.
