Preparation

Draw, GF command, Revival items/magics, and Thunder Element Junction to Elemental Attack.

Moveset Support Mode

On support mode, Mobile Type 8 will only use weak physical attacks, but it will use Homing Laser as its counter attack.

Moveset Attack Mode

When it switches to attack mode, it will use Corona on its next turn which reduces everyone's HP to 1. It will also end its attack mode with Megiddon flame which deals massive damage to the party.

Strategy

Mobile Type 8 will not counter Magic attacks when in Support mode. Keep drawing Demi from its Right Probe and casting it to Type 8. If Type 8 switches to attack mode, prepare a GF summon or a Restorative spell for each to survive the following Megiddo Flame attack.
