So I was watching the SDA speedrun of the PSX version of this game (http://speeddemosarchive.com/StarOcean2.html#Claude) and I noticed that as soon as he learns Air Slash, every couple of steps he cycles it on and off of Claude, which seemingly resets the triggers for random battles, as he never hits any.
Does anyone know a bit more about this trick? How many steps/how long do you wait before doing it again, why it even works in the first place, etc.? --- Is there... still a fight? Please wish me success! Wishes: 12
