I've been reading and watching how to jab lock with pikachu. I'm especially interested with the D-tilt into jab lock but I'm not able to pull it out consistently.
The problem I have is that after the D-tilt, and the enemy failing the tech, I need to run to get in jab range. When I stop running the stopping animation prevents me from using my jab in time so I end up using the dash atack mostly.
Here's a thread specifically talking about pikachu's jab lock options but they are obviating the point I'm struggling with (the same happens with all tutorials about it, which makes me think I'm just messing up the timing or some basic stuff I overlooked).
Is there any way to avoid stopping animation? Which is the right input sequence to pull out this jab lock consistently (from the D-tilt to the jab)?
