Battle Edit

Parasites like attacking in groups, and have a 33% chance of using Mind Stop every third turn, which inflicts Stop. They also have a 66% chance to counter any attack with Gigavolt. Ultimately, they are not a great threat, and Fira/Firaga spells cast against the entire group will decimate them.

Etymology Edit

Parasitism is a non-mutual relationship between organisms of different species where one organism, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host.
