Help, I'm stuck.

Spoiler! :
I'm partnered with Yumi and I've found the floppy and computer.
According to the walkthru i'm supposed to be able to trigger a boss fight in the gym.
But all I encounter in the gym is the demon fusion lab.

I reset and replayed through to that point and now the boss fight triggers. Weird.

Sidetrack: How do I gain spells in this game?

Yumi will gain spells when she dies. Everytime she will be protected by a guardian that gives a different set of spells.

Hmm, I am already like level 16 at the end of glutton, no spells but she had not died yet, so perhaps I will try that.

Compared to many other SMT games, including all of the snes and psx ones, talking to demons is a lot harder in this one, it seems.

edit: Yes, it is counter intuitive to basically every other RPG, even other Atlus persona/SMT games but yumi does indeed need to die to get spells. Not sure how soon in the game she gets them, as I waited till the glutton dungeon to do so.

Also, how often can you kill yumi to get new spells and improved guardians? I think the meter has to be filled, at least until it is red, for you to actually get any gains.

Finally gained spells.
Also, I noticed a stock counter on my stats, not sure what that's all about.
And how are you at level 16 and still alive in the guttony cave?

ha, I actually entered it at, like, level 10. Tons of grinding got me to 18 eventually where I was able to beat the first boss. about to go after the rest of the dungeon.

OK. Cleared that hurdle.

Spoiler! :
Now I'm on 4F and trying to yank out the sword, but the game is not allowing me to?
"Your Guardian doesn't have the kind of power needed".


Feels like I'm having a conversation with myself here. :lol:

Finally beaten the game with Yumi and replayed with Akira.
I swear this game was made by masochists.
That Akira path is absolutely brutal AF towards the end. :!:
