Battle[edit | edit source]

Stilva has the Enemy Skills Magic Breath and Trine. It uses Jump Attack on the character in the party with the highest current HP. This is the player's second chance to obtain the missable Enemy Skill Trine, but Stilva will never use the skill normally and must be manipulated to learn it. This enemy can be morphed for the rare Holy Torch.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Stilva can be easily defeated by making it cast Magic Breath on itself. Magic Breath is powerful and can do upwards of 2,000 damage, so surviving it can be difficult. Guarding allies against either Fire, Ice, or Lightning will protect them from an almost certain KO, as well Big Guard. L4 Suicide also works against it.
