Bottomswell Boss Guide Strategy

Use Party Members with Long Range Attacks

Bottomswell Boss Guide

Use long-range attacks and magic to easily defeat this boss. Using Yuffie and/or Barret is a plus, since their normal attacks can hit from a distance. The boss also has a weakness to wind, so you can summon Choco or Mog to perform a wind attack.

Break the Bubble

It has a pesky attack in Waterball which allows it to trap a single target in a bubble. This bubble drains HP and prevents the character from acting. Use magic to break the bubble. You can also apply the All Materia to your magic attacks so that it will also hit Bottomswell when you destroy the Waterball.

Prepare High HP for Big Wave

Bottomswell’s last resort before dying is the Big Wave, which can cause heavy damage if you are not prepared. Make sure that your party’s HP is high before ending the battle.
