Trivia

  • In the American version, Julie has different dialogue when she throws out Gorem against Cycloid. This is why it appears as if Julie used the Mega Impact ability off-screen.
    • However, in the Japanese version, Julie's dialogue actually involves using the Mega Impact ability while she throws Gorem at the same time.
