Battle Edit

When with other enemies, it uses Magitek Laser or its special, Program 35, every turn. However, when alone or when attacked with a normal attack, it has a 33% chance to use Launcher, greatly reducing the HP of the party. Like most enemies in the Magitek Research Facility, it also has high Defense. Thunder and Thundara spells make quick work of it. Inflicting Silence on it prevents it from using Magitek Laser, Launcher, and Scintillation. Edgar's Bioblaster/Flash and Sabin's Rising Phoenix also work well.
