HP: 2300. ATK: 1070. RCV: 231
Special: Lock orbs for 1 turn.
Paulie has pretty decent stats and he can also lock orbs. Locking your good orbs can be very beneficial, making Paulie a very helpful unit.
HP: 1290. ATK: 840. RCV: 185
Special: STR into RCV orbs, RCV into DEX orbs.
Chessmarimo is a decent Orb converter, but his stats aren't good enough to makes his only okay special worth it.
HP: 2215. ATK: 1282. RCV: 338
Special: 50% damage reduction for 3 turns.
Smoker is a damage reducer, but it isn't the best because it's generally preferred to have a bigger reduction for 1 turn instead of an only decent one for 3 turns. Smoker has pretty awesome stats though.
HP: 412. ATK: 390. RCV: 530
Special: Half enemy defense for 2 turns.
She can break enemy's defense decently. She has the best RCV, but probably the worst health and ATK. But, could she be the best character in the game?????? (no)
HP: 1081. ATK: 701. RCV: 288
Special: 1.5X DEX boost.
She's awesome for a DEX team with her special, but odds are your Striker team won't have many DEX units.
