BattleEdit

Bottomswell-ffvii-field

Similar to Reno, Bottomswell can imprison characters using Waterball trapping them inside a Waterpolo. Unlike Pyramid, the player must select the actual Waterpolo orb and not the character for them to be freed. This can be done by casting a spell. When group-casting spells with All Materia, the spell will target both the Bottomswell and the Waterpolo. The bubbles keep draining the victim's HP as long as they are trapped inside.

Bottomswell has three forms through it will dynamically cycle, distinguished by the erraticness of its movements. His Bodyblow attack only uses on the character who has the highest current HP and it can use Tail Attack and Moonstrike to each party members instead to one character in same turn. Bottomswell uses a Big Wave attack to inflict mediocre damage on the entire party.

Bottomswell is considered to be a long range opponent. Once Bottomswell is defeated it will cast Big Wave as a final attack.

StrategyEdit

Unless the party has a Long Range Materia (one of which is conveniently located in the Mythril Mines prior to Junon) only Barret and Yuffie can attack Bottomswell physically, so the other party members must use magic or Limit Breaks to attack. If players can defeat Midgar Zolom prior to exploring the Mythril Mines, its powerful Beta attack inflicts 1,000 or more damage and can thus defeat Bottomswell in three hits.

On lower levels, the player can easily win simply by poisoning Bottomswell. This is because Bottomswell only uses the deadly Waterball after losing a certain amount of its HP.
