Powerstone 2 throws

So this might not be the most sensible place to ask this, but I hate Gamefaqs forums.

I got pretty good at this game when I had it before, but I could never figure out how to make the characters perform their throws from the original game (as opposed to just lifting the op over their head).

I’m pretty sure it’s possible, at least for some of the characters, because the computer does it to you every once in a while.

Anyone know how? Are there other hidden moves that I might not have discovered?
