Reverse 1999: Is Pickles Any Good?

So you want to add the cute pup to your team. But is the good boy any good? As mentioned before, Pickles is a six star Mineral Arcanist. This border collie is one of the most versatile characters in Reverse 1999. He has a good balance between attack damage and good buffing support. 

Pickles can charge up his Ultimate Attack fast as well since he can gain Moxie if he relaxes and takes a turn off. This allows him to buff the DMG Dealt to the entire party for two turns. This means he’ll be able to boost the entire team’s damage multiple times in a fight.  

His attack is nothing to scoff at either. The pup has great DPS and when he boosts the team with his Ultimate Attack, he can easily switch from Support to an Attacker
