How to Use Monado Speed

When enemies use arts, their names are in different colors. Red names indicate the Art is Physical, and can be dodged using Monado Speed. If you see visions of the future where enemies use Physical Arts, this icon will appear next to the Speed Art.

Not worth leveling up

Generally speaking, Monado Speed is not really worth investing AP into, because doing so will only increase the duration of the evade buff. For the most part, you can just keep it at level one and you will have no problem using it in time for a vision tag. Only upgrade it if you find yourself using it a ton outside of Shulk's visions, or if you have extra AP to spend.
