How to beat Giygas hint for Earthbound


How to beat Giygas

Many people get confused on how to beat the final boss, Giygas.
He's simple really.

Beat Pokey at the begining, then attack Giygas until Pokey comes back to mock you some more.

After that, use Paula's Prayer option 9 times.

Don't stop if you think you should. After that, he should be defeated.
Just remember to keep Paula alive to defeat him.

pokey helps you win by saying "are you gonna call our mommy and daddy?" that means keep on praying.

Ok the real way to beat Giygas. The first round of battle with Pokey and Giygas is essentially the prep stage. Ness: Paralysis on Pokey until he goes numb (he can't do anything now). Paula: Shield 2 every 3 turns, other than that Offense Up 2. Jeff: Defense Shower until it no longer makes a difference. Poo: His first attack use Brainshock 1 on Pokey ONLY. There ya have it, immune to all attacks in this first round and with the Defense Shower and Offense Up you get an uber team. I usually throw in a couple of Sudden Guts pills for Ness, bringing his guts up to 255 and can deal 1017 damage to pokey when a SMAAAASH hit lands. As for the rest, just keep Paula alive and keep praying. Its a good idea to stop off in Dallam or something and pick up a few Brain Food Lunches AND Jars of Delisauce. Combined they give you max HP and PP everytime. Hope this helped more than the OP's lame description.

What do I do if Paula is defeated though? I can't run away or revive her! Do I have to restart the game?
