A boring, technical note about 2:19:
For those who want the long in-depth explanation, you can also do FD with H as well (and Ruu wanted to include it because it's technically true) but itâ€™s not recommended!
The throw~FD option select was removed from Xrd so if you try to FD with H youâ€™ll need to be more accurate than usual or else you may get accidental H attacks. Therefore we recommend doing FD with only P,K or S.
If you do 4P ~ +K you will get FD
If you do 4K ~ +P you will get FD
If you do 4P ~ +H you will get FD
If you do 4H ~ +P you will get H
Because you cannot kara cancel H into FD you may get more execution errors, therefore you should do FD with P,K or S. We preferred to omit H from the explanation than to let new players experience "mysterious" execution errors because they don't understand the ins and outs of the engine and the tweaks made by the developers based on high level of play.
