Boss Battle Strategy

For this battle you will have Yuri, Karin, Gepetto and Blanca.

Castor and Pollux can use Judgment Ring abnormalities, so equip someone with the Pocket Watch you found in the subway tunnels.

Characters roles will vary depending on what fusion you have for Yuri, and what dress Cornelia is wearing. Most likely Karin and Yuri will be damage dealers, where Gepetto and Blanca will be healers looking after HP and SP.

Fighting Castor and Pollux is easier when you only have to deal with one of them as they will use combo attacks. Pick one to attack and keep attacking it until it is defeated, rather than trying to spread your attacks across both. It is easier to defeat Pollux first, as he is Water affinity and Karin has fire-based magic. Use fire magic and skills on Pollux and water magic and skills on Castor where possible.

Once one is defeated, it will be easier to defeat the second one, however keep an eye on your SP, restore using Pure Leaves.
