What are Elemental Blights?

You can inflict various types of debuffs called elemental blights on monsters in battle. In previous Monster Hunter games, applying elemental blights were exclusive to monsters that use different attribute-based attacks on hunters. In Monster Hunter Rise, hunters will be able to inflict them on monsters as well.
