What Team

#1 Posted by cmcali16 (52 posts) -

Ok, I have this game and once I get my ps2 in a day or two I will be starting my playthrough of it. I have been thinking long about what team I should use and I was thinking about Yukiko, Teddie, and Yosuke. I think that they are all strong magic users and I feel they could prove a very powerful team. Watching the endurance run I don't think I would be a big fan of Chie's Physical skills. I'm not sure just wanted to see what other people's team of choice is and its benefits.

thats a solid team. everyone else has their uses but they're pretty contextual.

It's always MC, Yosuku, Chie, and Yukiko.

I just stuck with the Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko team.

Never felt the need to change, I guess!

Pretty much any team works, it's not especially hard. Naoto is the worst char though. My team was Yosuke, Yuki and Kanji, also the team I recommend. But play with the characters you enjoy the most!

i like Yosuke, Yukiko and Teddie

I go with the all bro team usually, because they all have ma- skills.

Or I'll switch out Yosuke for Chie.

My A-team was Yukiko, Teddie and Yosuke, so you should be fine with that.
 
Provides solid healing, buffs and offense.

stick with the Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko team and by the point you get Naoto, if you are willing to do some level grinding, Kanji and Teddie have some really good moves. Naoto is only good for regular battles and not really good with bosses.

Mine was Chie, Yukiko, Naoto. Naoto is awful against bosses what whatevs. It was a fun team.

Kanji, Yosuke, Teddie.
 
^that is the best team. Yeah, its all male, and that sucks, but Kanji is a superior version of Chie, Teddie is a superior version of Yukiko and Naoto sucks.  This team can get you fully buffed in one turn, has huge damage output thanks to Kanji, good med. support from Teddie, and Yosuke can fufill pretty much any role at any given time.

Sempai Squad: Yukiko/Yosuke/Chie

They are all you ever need so long as you have the Personae to fill in the gaps.

Doesn't mean much, though:P I'd say any combination of character is good enough to get you through the game. Even the worst possible combination(Kanji/Chie/Naoto) can make it through the game just fine.

Kanji and Chie are fucking fantastic against the final/secret bosses though.

Chie: Power Charge

Kanji: Matarukaja

and then BAM

Yeah. But that's, like, the last 5-10% of the game. For the rest of the time you have to deal with the fact that Chie does a pittance of damage and that you have 0 healers.

This. All the way.

#17 Posted by bbrcher (67 posts) -

As soon as I could: Chie, Kanji and Teddie. I mostly played phys so SP didn't bog me down. I used Teddie only because he was slightly less annoying than Yukiko, and I needed a healer other than myself.

Worked for me.

I used MC (obv), Kanji as tank, Yukiko as healer, and Yosuke as ... uhh overpowered awesomeness.  Kanji is way underrated he is just a fun character to play with.

The real answer is

Get everybody to lv 99

#21 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3075 posts) -

Kanji, Chie, Yukiko.  Basically punch through the entire game and use SP on bosses if the need arises.

#22 Posted by FateOfNever (1830 posts) -

I went with Kanji, Yukiko, and Naoto.  Once I got Naoto, that is.  Until Naoto I used Chie with the other two.  The only problem I ever had with Naoto is getting her S. Link maxed out requires planning ahead, since you get her so late in the game it's easy to run out of time and be unable to max it if you don't plan ahead or make sure to make her a top priority.

once everyone is available my main party is MC, yukiko, yosuke and either kanji or teddie.  though this party are for bosses since mc's personas could fill the gap. i feel that naoto's and chie's skills arent really useful against bosses.

#24 Posted by Sayishere (1840 posts) -

I used the original team i.e. MC, Chie, Yosuke, Yukiko

Just a nice balance, one physical 2 magic users and one guy who is 0

This same thread was done about 2 years ago [LINK] but it's been a while.  I haven't changed my answer since then though.  Yosuke, Yukiko and Teddy with Naoto traded in and out periodically.

#26 Posted by Dork_Metamorphosis (251 posts) -

I ended up with Kanji, Teddie, and Naoto at the end.

#27 Posted by ShadowKing7 (753 posts) -

I always roll with Chie, Kanji, and Yukiko.  Maybe not the best strategy-wise, but I wanted to use both Kanji and Chie so I made it work.

I feel like during the endurance run they really dismissed physical skills because they take away HP, but then constantly complaining and leaving the dungeon because they run out of SP. I found physical a good way to preserve SP, and Chie's god hand is fairly strong.

Thats the team I used. Chie is fun for the physical skills, but Teddie can do team buff defense, attack, has better ice attacks and can heal the team. I just did an expert play through and felt like with Yukiko/Yosuke/Teddie I was flexible to do anything any turn.
