Remember, the key to getting the best demons possible is creative fusion. Even if you recruit a really powerful demon like one of these, they won’t show their full potential until you mash ’em up into something bigger and better. Don’t be afraid to fuse your demons once they’ve learned all of their moves; worst-case scenario, you can always call them back from the Compendium for a fee.
