Battle[edit | edit source]


Hojo doesn't attack but gets aid from his two samples, the Bad Rap Sample and the Poodler Sample, with the Capsule ability. He will instantly bring out another replacement monster if either minion is defeated.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player should avoid wasting MP against this form, and use physical attacks to defeat Hojo. If the Samples cause problems, one can simply use Stop-inflicting attacks to keep them from attacking.
