Startup Frames
Startup Frames

Technical Definition-The amount of frames it takes for a move to become active. Followed by the active framesand the recovery frames.

NOTE-Conventionally, the first active frame is included in the startup amount. This means a move that is listed as having x startup frames becomes active on frame x. However some frame data guides will list startup frames exclusively, meaning a move that is listed as x frames of startup will become active on the next frame or frame (x+1). See here for more information.

In Other Words-The windup in baseball is used to generate momentum before delivering the pitch. Similar to how the windup takes more time but creates more speed relative to the stretch, moves with more startup frames typically deal more damage than faster moves.
