!How Do You Use Your Lil' Leftovers?
For most serious tamers, Lil' Leftovers
as a battler is just as squishy and sludgy as his model might indicate. However, I wouldn’t call it entirely useless. Food Coma
can be used effectively as a stall tactic. Coupled with Curse of Doom
in particular, it can help turn the tide, and eke out enough turns to stay in the game. This goes double if your opponent has a DoT that Lil' Leftovers can rout with High Fiber
, and keep healthy in between with Absorb
Be wary of using Chew
in between your Food Coma. Food Coma is a classic sleep effect. Like a Druid’s Hiberation, if you damage the sleep it breaks, and then the tank yells at you.
There’s a lot to love with Lil' Leftovers. The only issue is, with a game now so dependent on multipliers and debuffs, Leftovers doesn’t have a ton of synergy available to exploit. Much like its real life counterpart, there are just other options in the fridge that look a lot juicier.
The most similar pet to Lil' Leftovers would probably be Pierre
, though it’s a tough sell to call them equivalent. Pierre has quite a bit more offense and synergy opportunities, plus better stats, making him likely the preferable call here. Honestly neither is going to see a ton of play outside very specific, niche opportunities. They’re also different families, so be wary of those interactions too.
