Battle Edit

It has a chance of using Yawn on its first turn and every third turn after, putting a party member to Sleep. It has a 33% chance of countering any attack with Snort, removing a party member from battle. This makes them particularly annoying when fought in the Dreamscape, where the party is already reduced to three members. Besides Snort and Sneeze, they use normal attacks.

Strategy Edit

It is best to try and take them out quickly with Holy-elemental attacks, as the more attacks it takes to defeat them the greater the chance they will use Snort to blow away a party member.
