Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable, or when Syphoned/Berserked → Harpoon Hit (1/2), Swap Players (1/2);
  • Otherwise → Harpoon Hit (1/4), Swap Players (1/4);
    • If a player has more than 100% buffs in total, or if a foe has more than 100% debuffs in total → Recycle (1/8), Lock On (1/8);
      • If the target has at least a 10% Evade debuff → Electron Gun (1/4);
      • Otherwise → Bind (1/8), Electron Gun (1/8);
    • Otherwise → Lock On (1/6);
      • If the target has at least a 10% Evade debuff → Electron Gun (1/3);
      • Otherwise → Bind (1/6), Electron Gun (1/6).

* If Lock On's selected target already has at least a 10% Accuracy buff, it retargets to a different foe, unless no other foes are alive.
