Idol Showdown Combos

Idol Showdown combos are based on motion inputs and notation, which make them easier to learn than traditional button inputs. For example, a basic combo for Korone involves pressing quarter-circle forward and quarter-circle backward. This motion is good for zoning and combos, as it can be performed while jumping.

FubukiKorone, and Ayame are good starters for those new to the fighting genre. These Idol Showdown characters have easy combos and good damage. Players who want a challenge should try Botan and Coco.

The game also has some unique mechanics, such as the IPS system, which makes the player invulnerable until either teching or hitting the ground. 

In addition, the player can use the Super Chat meter to cancel special moves and extend combos. 

The game has unique mechanics, including instant block and motion inputs. The motion inputs work by mirroring the character on your left and the opponent on your right, and they can build a meter if triggered correctly. The simple inputs only perform the light version of moves, but they can be used to perform combos.
