TL;DR: Should You Pull?
What Does It Do?
Halloween Hilbert joins the limited roster of completely self-sufficient Strikers. It can max out its own Attack, Speed, and Critical Hit rate, which synergizes fantastically with Haymaker and Ramming Speed. It does so through Carry On 1, which buffs Mightyena’s Attack by 1 stage for every KO, regardless of which side the fallen plays for, and its Sync Move, which buffs Mightyena’s Critical Hit rate.
Spur On 4 is basically the Move Gauge Refill version of Moxie, which is an extremely useful asset to maintain a steady stream of damage. It also synergizes fantastically with Defense Crush on an ally, thanks to Insult to Injury. Players can then add Terrify 1 and the staple Recoil Grid support like First Aid 4 and Standfast 5 to their consideration. All of these combine to turn Mightyena into a mighty juggernaut in longer battles like Full Force Battles, Battle Villa, and Legendary Arena.
The biggest drawback to this otherwise awesome unit is that most of the aforementioned selling points come from the Sync Grid, which means that players are unlikely to get the full package at once due to the Energy cap.
How Do I Use It? (Grid, Lucky Skills, And Comps):
A sample Grid for Mightyena that nabs the most important nodes. The top right sector is compulsory, while the rest are mainly for maximizing Mightyena’s efficiency as a recoil striker. Since Crunch and Double Edge have the same Move Gauge cost, players looking to make use of the recoil-free Crunch can afford to drop the bottom left sector. In its place, players would do well to pick up Insult to Injury and Crunch on a Roll.
As a self-sufficient striker, Mightyena prefers teammates that can keep it healthy, buff its defenses, and/or lower the targets’ Defense. Good candidates in each aspect include Skyla, Sygna Suit Blue, and Professor Kukui. Skyla is the best budget (free) healer, with a nice Defense and Speed team buff that can guarantee the maximization of Mightyena’s Speed. Sygna Suit Blue, on the other hand, is the game’s premier tank, with decent team-wide stat boosts. Kukui, on the other hand, offers Leer support. At the cost of just 1 Move Gauge slot per use, players can use it to shave turns off the Sync Move Countdown. This is arguably an improvement on Defense Crush, (usually a Lucky Skill), which is not a guaranteed trigger. The slightly more expensive alternative is Sygna Suit Leaf, who carries Potion and Poison capabilities on top of Sundering 9.
Players who would like to utilize Type boosts should look no further than Karen or Nanu. Houndoom’s Snarl helps limit the damage that the team takes from Special hits, while Alolan Persian can help weaken foes immensely through Screech.
Is It Worth Pulling?
Yes. As a seasonal Banner with an obscenely powerful set, Halloween Mightyena is not a Sync Pair to be missed, particularly if players lack a strong Physical and/or Dark Type Strike option.
