Battle Edit

Axolotls can be dangerous when first fought due to their use of the Aqua Breath and Water, both of which can deal heavy damage.

Strategy Edit

Thunder spells against them to deal the most damage, and it may be a good idea keeping one or two characters on standby to heal up if needed.

Etymology Edit

The axolotl also known as a Mexican salamander (Ambystoma mexicanum) or a Mexican walking fish, is a neotenic salamander, closely related to the tiger salamander. Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a "walking fish", it is not a fish, but an amphibian.
