Bring energy drinks to prevent yourself from falling asleep when fighting Nightshade Paolumu. You can also attach sleep resistance jewels to your armor or use a sleep charm to minimize or negate its effects.
Flashpods will force Nightshade Paolumu down when it goes airborne. Bring some along to give you some time to whittle down its health as it struggles to get up.
Nightshade Paolumu can be troublesome to deal with if it has managed to blanket area with sleeping gas. Having good sleep resistance makes the fight significantly easier. Without it, you will have to wait until the gas dissipates so that you can move around more easily. You can also try luring Nightshade Paolumu to another area to avoid being exposed to the gas for too long.
Use flashpods whenever Nightshade Paolumu goes into the air. It will not be able to perform its aerial spinning charge attack which homes in on its target.
