Battle[edit | edit source]


Smogger has two attacks, Punch, a standard physical attack, and Smog, an attack that inflicts physical damage and may inflict either Poison or Darkness. It will only use Smog if there are party members that are not yet afflicted with the statuses it can inflict, otherwise it will always use Punch, however, it may still use Punch even if there are characters that are not Poisoned or Darkness.

Smoggers drop Deadly Waste, a useful item that casts Bio2 on all enemies; they can be useful against Part 1 bosses that can be poisoned.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It can be killed easily with a few physical attacks, but if a party member is in Darkness status, their attacks will miss, so it is better to use magic this time, and as it has no elemental affinity any magic will suffice.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Smog is a type of air pollutant. The word "smog" was made in the early 20th century as a portmanteau of the words smoke and fog. The word was then intended to refer to what was sometimes known as pea soup fog, a problem in London from the 19th century to the mid 20th century, caused by the burning of coal within a city; this smog contains soot particulates, sulfur dioxide and other components. Modern smog, as found for example in Los Angeles, is a type of air pollution derived from vehicular emission from internal combustion engines and industrial fumes that react in the atmosphere with sunlight to form secondary pollutants that also combine with the primary emissions to form photochemical smog. It is toxic to humans and can cause sickness, shortened life or death.
