iDom's victory at Capcom Cup 2019 was nothing short of amazing. While Laura is generally seen as being his main character of choice, Poison ended up being a crucial part of his achievement during the course of that weekend.

With iDom proving Poison's viability in the last season, it might be safe to expect to see more of the character considering how she was buffed in Season 5. Needless to say, iDom has recently released a match up chart for Poison thanks to TierMaker.

According to iDom, Poison has favorable match ups against 21 of the game's 39 character roster. Of course, only 37 characters are listed as there's no point in considering the mirror match and Gill is still fairly new.

It appears that Poison does particularly well against characters like Zangief, Laura, Cody, and Falke. Her advantages against fighters like Birdie, Ryu, Karin, Kolin, Akuma, Sakura, and Zeku are noted as not being as great as the first four that were mentioned.

G and Abigail are also noted as being advantageous match ups for Poison, but iDom hilariously separates them into their own category as they "don't play match ups."

Poison goes even against Menat, Guile, Rashid, and Chun-Li. The chart describes Poison as only having five bad match ups against Cammy, R. Mika, Ibuki, Urien, and M. Bison. In particular, iDom states that it'd be best to not use Poison in the M. Bison match up "at all costs."
