How to counter Velvet's Eruption?

For questions like these, you should try training mode. It is something you'll want to get pretty familiar with.

Here you can just record her doing the move and then try to block it.

Other things you can use training mode for are figuring out how to punish things. Seeing if your frametraps are mash-out-able. Seeing if your oki is "real". Coming up with oki. Etc.

If Velvets are throwing it at you as part of a blockstring, you can hard counter it by jumping out of the blockstring. There's no true blockstring into Eruption, and A Eruption gets rocked by jump-ins.

Otherwise, block low. Generally speaking, if you're out of C Shatter range, you can just hold down back and not get outright hit by anything Velvet has for you, though you'll need to get in somehow to damage her.
