Pacos Amethyst and Pacos Luvulite are crystalspawn born in the chaos of Valhalla.
Amethyst was once a pure chuck of ice floating on the seas of entropy, while Luvulite was a pool of molten magma that erupted from the unstable ground. Once both had matured to a certain size, they took on the apparent shape and cunning of beasts.
Pacos Luvulite is a boss the player must face in Academia 500 AF in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It appears after a cutscene where Yeul warns Serah and Noel to turn back and not fight Caius. Pacos Luvulite appears alongside another similar boss—the difference in the two is their signature elements—named Pacos Amethyst. Defeating this battle with a 5-star rating will earn the player the "Obsidian Medal" achievement/trophy.
Pacos Luvulite is weak to ice and absorbs fire, while Pacos Amethyst is weak to fire and absorbs ice. Once one of these beasts falls, the other will begin to use the Split technique to revive the fallen comrade with the same HP the remaining one has left.
The key to defeating the pair is to exploit their weaknesses and avoid their signature element. A good idea is to use a Librascope at the beginning of the battle so the allies' AI chooses the correct combination of attacks.
Both are quick to stagger and whittle down in HP. Chances are the player can use two Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) paradigms to utilize the ATB refresh technique without ever having to heal throughout the battle with a decently leveled party. Rarely will these two enemies bring down the party's HP enough to justify switching to a Medic Paradigm.
For low-level parties that cannot take down one of the Pacos bosses with ease, a good strategy is to knock the HP of one down and then switch to the other so they can be taken down before the Split ability is used. A decently leveled party should be able to take them both down without fear of more than one Split.
Pacos is the plural form of paco, paco is an earthy-looking ore, consisting of brown oxide of iron with minute particles of native silver.
Luvulite is another name for the mineral sugilite. Sugilite is a pink to purple cyclosilicate mineral. The crystals are rarely found and the form is usually massive.
