Counter Tips

Don't stand too close to enemy tower when pushing so that Alistar won't be able to use Flash pulverize into headbutt combo.
Unless it's a certain victory, try not to dive an alistar because of his ultimate and his insane CC.
Punish him hard for messing up a Headbutt - Pulverize combo.
