3. Why Teen Gohan?

______________________

When I first started playing this game, I decided that I'd try every character
until I found one I felt comfortable with. As it happens to be, the character
that I was most comfortable with was Teen Gohan with the SSJ2 transformation
selected. He is more close ranged than most other characters which makes him a
little harder to use, though with this in mind, he is a great character to
combo with.

Advantages:
Small 
Fast
Combos great
Good super special

Disadvantages:
Have to be close for max potential
Lack of reach
Bad super move for the first two forms unless comboed

______________________

4. Specials

Here I'll give a brief description of his specials.

Base form Teen Gohan

<+O-Masenko

Damage- Not charged: 430
        Charged:     600

Notes-Not that great of a move. It has very short range unless you charge it
and if you do have the time to charge it then you might want to use something
else. You can put this at the end of a combo for some extra damage, though
like before takes a little for it to hit and you might miss the combo window
and have the hits not add on.

>+O-Kamahameha 

Damage- Not charged: 400
        Charged:     560

Notes- Pretty decent move while not that strong, is helpful if the opponent is
on the ground. It can't really be comboed save a couple.

/\+O-Super Kamahameha

Damage- Not charged: 1000
        Charged:     1000

Notes- No real point in charging this move. Still does the same amount. Also,
when you have 5 ki bars, Teen Gohan's base attack is now 104%. Really good
finisher.

_____________________

Teen Gohan SSJ: Can only be reached with 4 ki bars. While in this form base 
attack is now 110%.

<+O- Masenko

Damage- Not charged: 473
        Charged:     660

Notes- Not the great of a move. It has very short range unless you charge it
and if you do have the time to charge it then you might want to use something
else. You can put this at the end of a combo for some extra damage, though
like before takes a little for it to hit. Does a little more damage in SSJ.

>+O Kamehameha

Damage- Not charged: 440
        Charged:     616

Notes- Pretty decent move while not that strong, is helpful if the opponent is
on the ground. It can't really be comboed save a couple.

/\+O Super Kamehameha

Damage- Not charged: 1100
        Charged:     1100

Notes- No real point in charging this move. Still does the same amount. Also,
when you have 5 ki bars, Teen Gohan's base attack is now 112%. Really good
finisher.

_________________________

Teen Gohan SSJ2: Can only be reached with 4 ki bars. While in this form base 
attack is now 120%.

<+O Soaring Dragon Strike

Damage- Not charged: 552
        Charged:     630- 2 hits total to 630

Notes- Finally, a different move. With this move you can combo it into a 
teleport combo. It can also be comboed into to make a nice finish. 

>+O Kamehameha

Damage- Not charged: 480
        Charged:     672

Notes- Pretty decent move while not that strong, is helpful if the opponent is
on the ground. It can't really be comboed save a couple.

/\+O Super Kamehameha/ Father-Son Kamehameha

Damage- Not charged: 1200
        Charged:     1200
Father-Son damage: Varies

Notes- Really good finisher. When doing Teen Gohan's ultimate, you can press O
before it finishes to start the Father-Son when you have 6 Ki bars. Depending 
when you do this, the damage will vary. I did the Father-Son at 1180 damage
and had a total damage of 2180. I'm pretty sure that is the max but I'm not
sure just yet. If you have the oppurtunity to pull off the Father-Son, then
by all means do so. It is possible to take 2 Life bars off of your opponent.

Discovered Combos

Note: The base and SSJ form combos will change in damage and hits for SSJ2.
Reason being, Masenko is changed to Soaring Dragon Strike which adds another
hit and more damage.

6. Strategy (Under construction)

There are, in my opinion, two ways to play Teen Gohan. One is to get to SSJ2 
as quickly as possible and use Father-Son Kamehameha to dish out the most 
damage possible. It is possible to start the round as SSJ2. When selecting 
the SSJ2 transformation, hold down the right shoulder button then press X to
select Teen Gohan. You'll hear a different sound then normal and you'll start
as SSJ2. Nice little advantage. Beware though, you still start the match with 
only three bars of ki, leaving you with only 90% defense until you charge to 
four bars of ki.

The other is to combo alot ending in supers and not really 
worry about going to SSJ2 as quickly as the first strategy. The latter is the
one I use most often. Most of the combos I post involve a special at the end
so it looks cooler and does more damage. Downside to this strategy is you have
to be really close to your opponent. Most of Teen Gohan's combos usually knock
the opponent away so you might need to Aura Burst to your opponent to keep up
in the style of play.
