All Gongaga Region Simulations - Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

By
Jessica Dillon

The Gongaga region in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has several simulation battles that you can unlock by battling the various monsters in the region. Each simulation has you face off against a variety of enemies from the region, and beating them can be difficult without knowing their weaknesses. Below we take a look at every Gongaga simulation and some tips on how to beat them.

Kujata is the simulation boss of the Gongaga region.

Kujata Simulation

"Kujata" iconKujata is the premier summon boss that unlocks as soon as you reach the Gongaga region. Kujata is a bit more difficult for most players as he loves to stampede around the battlefield. He will also switch between three different forms: "Ice" iconIce, "Fire" iconFire, and "Lightning" iconLightning. You will want to combat each of these with their weaknesses. Fire is weak to Ice, Ice is weak to Fire, and Lighting is weak to "Wind" iconWind. Use these to pressure Kujata into being staggered so that you can use your synergy and limit attacks to deplete his health bar quickly.

You can use Yuffie for her different elemental abilities to help pressure Kujata, and Tifa always does great alongside Cloud for synergy. Be sure to use "Fire and Ice Materia" iconFire and Ice Materia along with the "Wind Materia" iconWind Materia. This will ensure that you hit all of Kujata’s weaknesses. As for dealing with his various attacks, be sure to move out of the way when he’s running towards you. You will essentially want to attack in between Kujata’s attacks to avoid taking too much damage. If you’re having trouble dodging in time, you can sub-in "Red XIII" iconRed XIII for his speed and throw the above Materia on him to pressure Kujata. Once you complete this battle, you will be given the Kujata Materia.

Gongaga Battle Intel: Lethal Combo

To unlock Lethal Combo, you will need to find and fight at least one "Pastel Amphidex" iconPastel Amphidex and one "Fulvum Varanus" iconFulvum Varanus. Once you do, you will be able to take on this three-round simulation where you fight these enemies together. Fulvum Varanus are big tanky dragons that can be pressured by using Ice, bringing an "Ice Materia" iconIce Materia into battle to quickly stagger them will help. Pastel "Amphidex" iconAmphidex are a little more irritating as they can turn you into a frog. You can use the White Cape accessory to combat this, and they are also pressured by Ice attacks. If you find yourself chasing around the frogs, try Red XIII for a speed boost or a ranged character like Barret. Once you complete this simulation, you will obtain the "Spirit Up Materia" iconSpirit Up Materia.

Gongaga Battle Intel: Rooted in the Planet

Unlocking Rooted in Plant has you seek out the "Brumeflower" iconBrumeflower and "Grandhorn Warden" iconGrandhorn Warden to fight. Once this is done, you will fight them both again in a three-round simulation. Brumeflower will quickly morph into a larger form during the duration of the battle and get stronger each time. The strategy here is to use Ice to pressure them into a stagger quickly. Once again, an Ice Materia is essential here. The "Grandhorn" iconGrandhorn Warden is a tankier enemy that can hit harder. Luckily, it is weak to Fire, so a "Fire Materia" iconFire Materia will work well. Tifa is a great choice here, as she can quickly deal damage to both enemies. If you have the Fire and Ice Materia, go ahead and equip it (link a "Level Boost Materia" iconLevel Boost Materia if needed) to kill two birds with one stone. Once you complete this fight, you will receive the "Speed" iconSpeed Up Materia.

Gongaga Battle Intel: Distant Tremors

Distant Tremors will unlock once you have defeated the "Savage Grandhorn" iconSavage Grandhorn and "Maloceros" iconMaloceros. Like in Rooted in Plant, use fire-based attacks to pressure the Savage Grandhorn, so a Fire Materia is a great choice here. The Maloceros is also weak to fire, making this a very easy battle to remember in terms of weaknesses. Tifa is still a great choice here, just make sure to dodge as much as possible to avoid being hit by heavy attacks. For completing this simulation you will get the "Elemental Materia" iconElemental Materia.

(1 of 3) Kujata will switch between elemental forms and change weaknesses.

Gongaga Region Intel: Level 1

The Gongana Region Intel: Level 1 will unlock when you have defeated twelve Gongaga enemies. This is a five-round battle that puts you up against a variety of enemies, mostly from the Gongaga region. The battles above will help prepare you for this, and bringing a Fire and Ice Materia is a great idea since many of the stronger enemies in the region can be pressured by these elements. Party composition is mostly up to you, as needs will change from round to round, but it’s always good to have a ranged character when you’re dealing with multiple enemy types to cover all your bases. Completing this simulation will earn you the two-star "Poison" iconPoison Up Materia.

Gongaga Region Intel: Level 2

To unlock the Gongaga region level two Intel, you must first complete level one and defeat 20 enemies in the Gongaga region (you won’t be able to achieve this feat until Chapter 12). This is a ten-round battle, and for the most part, you should follow the same advice as level one. Bring a Fire and Ice Materia as enemies in the region are weak to it. Use Yuffie or Barret in your party to give you some range, and bring Aerith if you’re struggling and need extra healing. For completing this simulation you will get a three-star "HP Up Materia" iconHP Up Materia.

Biological Intel: Head Case

This is the final bit of Intel for the Gongaga region, and it requires you to have defeated the "Mindflayer" iconMindflayer in the Junon region, assess 14 Gongaga enemies, and have a three-star "Enemy Skill Materia" iconEnemy Skill Materia. Once this is met you will enter into a one-round battle against the Mindflayer. The problem is that you need to defeat the Mindflayer first, and there are two "Experimental Varghidpolis" iconExperimental Varghidpolis that you can’t kill until after the Mindflayer is dead. The problem is that even if you don’t attack the weaker enemies, your party will. To circumvent this, you should equip the "Binding Materia" iconBinding Materia (for its "Sleep" iconSleep spell) paired with the "Magnify Materia" iconMagnify Materia and put the two other enemies to sleep. Recast this immediately if they wake up.

When an enemy is asleep, your party members should leave them alone. Be sure to try and only attack the Mindflayer when he’s away from the Varhidpolis duo, you can try and lead him away by moving around the battlefield. After you reach a safe distance, focus on the Mindflayer. It’s very similar to the previous battle against it so focus on using synergy abilities to pressure it. Tifa can build up synergy fast, and if you have any trouble, use our guide here to refresh your strategy.
