Midscreen

Zooey's main combo ender midscreen is her 214X series. They give her a basic knockdown to get her gameplan rolling. She wants to push you to the corner because her setplay is stronger, but she still has some strong midscreen setups that allow for throw combos or UOH > Lightning Release combos.

Corner

Any launch hit from the beam will allow Zooey to go into dustloops. Otherwise, her goal is to loop her specials' EX cooldowns and try to end every hit in a Hard Knockdown or a setup. c.XXX or c.H canceled into 236H/22[H] gives it enough time to hit meaty, but Hard Knockdown setups are generally safer. Her main knockdown enders in the corner are 623H and 214H~6H. Sometimes you can link a 2U, which will give you a similar setup to the aforementioned moves.

Anti-Air

2H is her go-to anti-air, and you can cut it's recovery by whiffing either a 214L or 5U. 214L recovers faster, but in most cases you'd rather take the Dragon meter.
