Monster Arena > Mt. Gagazet > Dark Flan

HP: 12,800

Dark Flan is a Flan-type enemy that can be found in the Mt. Gagazet caves. You need to capture five of each Flan-type enemy in order to unlock Jumbo Flan in the Species Conquest section of the Monster Arena.

Dark Flans look like the other Flans that you have encountered, however they are much, much larger in size by comparison. They are capable of casting Demi, Bio, Drain, Osmose and Flare which makes them very powerful foes to deal with.

The best strategy for defeating a Dark Flan is to have one of your party members use Armor Break on it until it connects. You can also have a party member use Mental Break to greatly reduce the amount of damage done by the Dark Flan. With these effects applied, you can attack with regular physical attacks until you bring it down.

Kimahri can use Lancet on a Dark Flan to learn White Wind for his Ronso Rage Overdrive.

Can be found inside the Mt. Gagazet caves. You can also find them along the pathway to the Zanarkand Ruins. Unfortunately it doesn’t matter which section of the cave you are in - there is no way to improve your odds of finding one. Just keep hunting until you find them.
