Now that you know Fionn is vulnerable to Lightning, you should capitalize on that information and use allies that can target Fionn’s weakness.
Fionn’s only weakness is Lightning, so bring your best Zio spammers and equip Nahobino with powerful Lightning attacks to gain extra turns throughout the fight.
To accomplish this, you must fuse the essence of Aogami Type-4 with Nahobino. This way, you can obtain Ruinous Thunder for Nahobino and deal massive damage to Fionn.
If you don’t have a Lightning attack for whatever reason, don’t worry; there is another way. In such cases, use Elec Gems to deal massive Lightning damage to Fionn.
Bring fire dampers as well to protect your team from Fionn’s special attack known as Maragion (A Medium Fire attack)
Mothman and Lilim are the demons recommended for this fight because they can both exploit Fionn’s weak points and maximize damage.
Other than these two we recommend Cironnup since he’s immune to two of Fionn’s three magical attacks. Also, he can increase both team stats and use Blinding Strike to decrease Fionn’s Accuracy and Evasion.
