Somnacanth - Attack Patterns

Easier To Hit When Standing


When using its tail to stand, Somnacanth makes use of attacks that leave it open, allowing you to easily reach its head and neck. However, be very careful when rushing in as it can inflict sleep or stun with its attacks.

Attack During Sweeping Breath Attack

sweeping breath attack

When using its breath attack, Somnacanth leaves itself open to attacks from the sides and behind. Similarly, it also exposes itself when using its sweeping breath attack. After the breath attacks, it leaves its head slightly above the ground, allowing you to easily reach it. Both attacks are common when Somnacanth is in its standing form.

Beware Of The Breath Attack When Enraged

An attack that Somnacanth can use while enraged is its sweeping breath attack. Try to keep away from its mouth during this attack. Take this opportunity to get closer to Somnacanth using your Wirebug and keep out of its breath's range. As an indicator, Somnacanth's fins turn red when it is enraged.

Run Away From The Sleep Clouds

When swimming, Somnacanth can scatter gas clouds that explode after it uses its clam. It scatters the clouds in a circle but also be wary of getting near Somnacanth as its clam also produces an explosion so watch out and keep away and wait for the fireworks to end.

Use Wirebug To Escape Its Ultimate Attack

When standing, Somnacanth can channel its energy to produce sleep clouds that expand outward from it. While you can use Energy Drinks to counter the sleep status ailment, you can simply avoid this attack by using a wirebug.

Sonic Bombs Are Effective

When posturing for its ultimate move, using a Sonic Bomb will interrupt Somnacanth from doing the move. Although not necessary, you can bring Sonic Bombs to make the battle easier.
