Hilda & Emboar are one of the strongest Fire-type Strikers in the game, with high physical attack, a high power move ready to go turn 1, and an extremely high HP pool. They are self-sufficient, although additional buffs will further improve Emboar's performance. A big drawback to the pair is being heavily reliant on a Recoil move for damage. To help offset this, they do have high health, access to Potions, and a self-healing passive to help offset the detriment of Recoil, but these are still in limited quantity. In a drawn-out battle, Emboar will eventually fall to Recoil damage or suffer a sharp DPS drop if not using her Recoil move. She also performs more poorly against enemies with AoE attacks, as this will chip away at her HP pool, and can cause her to go out of commission earlier than hoped due to recoil.
