Monk Recommended Party Members

Party Member Reason for Recommending
VaanVaan The Monk class gifts characters with high evasion and health. Vaan has both, and he could slip into this role effortlessly. Either with a polestaff as a weapon or bare-knuckled, Vaan can string combos almost like a Knight or his default class, the Shikari. Making the Monk as his second class gives Vaan another job which has a high combo rate.
Basch Fon RonsenburgBasch Fon Ronsenburg If you thought Basch armed with swords is dangerous, wait until you see him unarmed. Basch is the essential tank of the game, and making him into a Monk--as his Second License job--is no doubt a strong choice. Basch would create headaches for the enemy party or the occasional Esper with combos upon combos as any combination of Knight/Monk or Bushi/Monk.
BalthierBalthier Balthier in this list completes the triumverate of high-combo wielding characters in the game. His strength is in dishing out high damage, and as a Monk, he gains unarmed skills coupled with his first job. The evasion and health boons it grants is crucial to the character, especially if his first job is as a Machinist or Archer.
PeneloPenelo Most characters list the Monk class as their Second License job and Penelo is no different. She is highly unlikely to slip into the Monk role, but have you seen her animation in the Quickenings? Penelo does just fine unarmed, as she does have a little bit of speed and health to complement the job class.
