Yeah, it's a terrible term, but it's been around forever. It was used in Third Strike, and is why Chun-Li was retarded.
Edit on Shadow Boxing: Oh I didn't realize it was from Third Strike. Well then, I could forgive the term haha. (It's still a bad term though. I don't see how it has anything to do with Shadows or Boxes. )
I thought I'll add some input to this as an Emperor player. I've found that Prishe seems to have a hard time getting around Emperor and his tracks as all his attacks do lead Prishe right at him. However does Locking off and using Banishga make her not move towards the Emperor? Because that could be a huge help right there against Emperor who is camping on Crests/Flares/Cells to get him to move out and get back in an uncomfortable position. (Just to note: Prishe is like Emperor's only real good matchup right now and it's sort of refreshing that Emperor gets a good matchup against a good character.)
Side note: "shadowbox" term is the worst terminology i have ever heard.Spoiler:

In case you are serious though it's shadow boxing as in swinging at nothing (you know.. like trying to punch shadows?).
Kind of feel like you're joking though :<
As far as Emperor is concerned.. I just always try and have a little bit of meter built so that if he throws out a crest I can use an assist to hit him out of it (Kuja or something of that sort)
Flares are meh, and Melancholy Prison can be annoying but overall it isn't too hard to work around. It does get annoying to be constantly fighting aroudn the traps though :/
Anyways, more importantly:
That is most certainly the case, the only issue is I'm not sure it will reflect flares.. although it could help versus an emperor camping a Red Flare?However does Locking off and using Banishga make her not move towards the Emperor?
I'm fairly certain it doesn't reflect flares. I remember Banishga going through a couple of flares and doing nothing. And even then, because Banishga has such a flat hitbox, I don't think it would be a viable strategy. I did see in a video that Nullifying Dropkick (name?) will go through flares, I think...
The hardest part of the Emperor matchup is simply approaching him in general. If you sit around and assist camp until you find an opening to punish with an assist, you're looking at an hour of standing there punching nothing, at which point ONE of you will get pissed off and decide it's not worth the trouble. The Emperor players probably have patience enough to wait you out even if they get hit a few times since they know the fight is to their advantage in the long run since Prishe needs to be on top of them to do any HP damage.
Though apart, forever connected.

I'll need more testing if Holy is needed since flares easily reflect it. For an aerial moveset, Raging Fists, Holy, and OIP is what I'm looking at right now.

What are you guys thoughts on Prishe vs Lighting?
Lightning's arsenal can keep Prishe away while still punishing and doing damage.
Prishe can keep Lightning on her toes all the time as far as what I've experienced. Thunder is going to be your main threat since it pokes really fast. Don't be afraid to go in, and keep up the pressure. I'll try to upload my Prishe vs Lightning matches when I get the free time.

Like with Vaan, Lightning has a lot of moves that can break your guard, or pass right through moves like Howling Fist. This means you've gotta play /carefully/. Of course, 'Careful' isn't exactly Prishe's strong suit. But I wouldn't really call this matchup difficult. As long as you can stay on your toes. Use your high priority moves as much as you can (but don't spam them) and try to focus on counterattacking if at all possible. Lightning has some pretty telltale audio cues. As soon as you hear "Dodge This!" Do as the lady says. I prefer to use Shoulder Tackle against that kind of thing, but I realize not so many people have ST equipped as a starter, so regular dodge is fine too. Punish with your choice of.... Whatever. A charged Howling Fist is probably the safest way to go, to prevent some kind of terrible counter-counter or something. Plus it does buttloads of damage, which is pretty cool. Anyways, I prefer to fight this one on the ground, myself (Mainly because of Shoulder Tackle) but in the end, I don't see this being too much trouble for Prishe.
