Fightable in Dark Dawn?[edit]

I found this a while ago in the Japanese strategy guide for Golden Sun Dark Dawn. In the enemy data chapter of the guide, Vine is listed as one of the fightable Venus Djinn. Here are the stats the guide listed:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
アイヴィ 468 72 187 55 117 ?
Elemental Resistances and Levels Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star venus.gif 193   Star mars.gif 100   Star mercury.gif 100   Star jupiter.gif 25   812 302 None Never

It's list of battle commands included Attack, Earthquake, Mad Growth, and Spire, and I'm assuming it would be at level 20 since all the other enemies in Teppe Ruins are.

I don't know if this means that Vine is only fightable in the Japanese version, or if the Japanese guide was of based off an earlier version of the game. --Mercury Mech 01:02, 24 May 2012 (CDT)

A third and more likely case, I think, is that the authors of the guide were allowed to take a look inside the game code and saw data for what was ultimately an unused Venus Djinni encounter that most likely is Vine. They had made an oversight and dedicated a section to that data like all the rest of the monsters in the game. It'd be just like if Golden Sun Universe mistakenly took the unused Venus Djinni monster data in GS1 that obviously would have been for Bane and put it on Bane's page as though it actually was fought in GBA Crossbone Isle. Of course, none of that completely proves that Vine isn't fightable in the Japanese version, so someone would have to put in the time to check for that...
