Zeromus Must Die...

But I Just Can't Kill Him


Help me out, guys. I want so very badly to beat Final Fantasy IV on the DS. I've tried my best but it appears my best can suck it, because after almost 15 tries, I just cannot get through Zeromus. His battle is easy breezy up until the part where it rains hot, meteor death from the sky. My party is in their 70's, but I just can't survive it. There's no warning to avoid it, just sudden murder. I've had a few "Lucky" shots where Kain will be in "Jump" mode and avoid it, but he gets butchered soon he's not good enough to pick up the party before another wave of Meteor knocks them on their ass.
 
So, aside from the fact that I'm apparently not as good at finding items in that games I thought I was, and am thus missing a few "key" augments (as the FAQs would have me believe), what can I do? Any advice out there for a wayward gamer?
 
At this point I'm ready to just pack my game up and trade it in. I don't want to do that, though. I want to play it through new game + even. But I just cannot fathom a method for getting around this stupid Meteor. All the FAQ strategies I read go along the lines of "After he hits you with meteor, pick your party back up!" but I can't because they're all dead.
 
This is a plea for help. I don't know if I can run through B8-B11 anymore. I don't know if I can sit through those boring ass computer-run battle sequences anymore. It's too damned frustrating and I'm about to give up. I'd appreciate anything you guys have to offer.
