Note: You have selected a substitute pet.

  • Has the required skills
  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

Doesn't work at all. First pet dies too fast, second one is too slow and squishy to work against Bruce.

Second pet needs to outspeed Bruce who has 340, I believe. I used a mongoose pup with 357 speed using Gnaw, Survival and Dive. Took a few tries but worked in the end. This fight is absolutely brutal.

I agree, my S/S Hermit Crab is 337 and is too slow for this to work. Also Inky really needs to be P/* to get chum low enough for Hermit to one-shot him. Those two changes would make a huge difference. (edited)

Is it possible that you had specific breeds? I tried it 20+ times now. Hermit crab always dies with 50% health left on bruce.
