The final battle in the amazing game Earthbound. (Yes I know the quality of the Pokey battle music sucks, shut up). I really don't have much to say about this one, other than it's one of the most emotionally disturbing boss battles ever. Also, if you want some tips on the battle...
(Pokey Battle tips) DO. NOT. ATTACK. GIYGAS. He has an invulnerable shield that lasts forever and deflects every attack right back at you. (Including things like Rockin and Starstorm.
Also, you don't want to put up a psychic shield that deflects PSI attacks. Here's why: If Giygas hits you with PSI (he can use all the PSI attacks Ness can use) the attack will bounce off you, bounce off Giygas and hit you. Putting up a shield wastes a valuable turn.
(Giygas First Phase)
Not much to say here. Just nuke him with everything you have. Also, Brainshock is so goddamn effective here.
(Giygas Second and last phases)
Brainshock is also very effective here. You'll want to use it so he doesn't take out your party in one hit with Flash. Now, in these phases, no matter how much you attack Giygas, he will not die. Here's what you gotta do: Make Ness use Lifeup Omega to keep the party alive, Jeff to use defensive items like Defense Spray and Defense Shower, and use Poo to bring back anyone who has zero HP. With Paula, you MUST pray. This is the ONLY way to beat Giygas. (Unless you have Mother 1+2, then there is a glitch where you can just poison Giygas to death). When you've prayed nine times, exhale and pat yourself on the back--you beat Earthbound!
