Gerogero is obviously status hell.

In my experience, the main problem is not the statuses themselves. But having to waste turns removing them sets the party back in terms of SB building and phase pushing.
Selphie will probably be so overworked she can't do much regular healing.

Astra goes a long way here. Solves all the problems I've listed. I got my win very shortly after switching my main Magicite to Unicorn.
Realm has a party Astra source of course: Selphie's brand new USB to show that Quinoa banner is a Torment trap too.
Silence, Sleep, Blind, Slow.
You will still suffer a few even with Unicorn. Especially Member 3.

As for Gerogero's attacks. While you are wasting time handling statuses, he stacks Imperil Bio on the party.
Phase 1 ~ 4 are quite manageable, especially if Selphie can concentrate on regular healing.
Come Phase 5, powerful AOE after powerful AOE. Most are Bio to reap that Imperil Bio.
AOSBs solve this, otherwise you'll need some strategizing.

Regardless, if you have been pulling, the SBs of this realm is quite well-equipped in terms of both damage and utility. Even Kiros & Ward too.

Like Jenova, you'll probably face more problems with party management than the boss himself.

These back-to-back torments, meh... and Gerogero, because obviously everyone has such horrible suppressed memories of Gerogero? Um, what? ...Feels more like just an excuse to drop a status-flinging boss in a realm that didn't have that many. >.>

Let's see, FF8.
Squall (BSB2, BSB1, OSB, SSB, Glint, LMR)
Seifer (CSB)
Fujin (BSB, SSB)
Quistis (BSB, SSB)
Raijin (BSB)
Selphie (BSB1, SSB)
Edea (SSB1, SSB2, Inaugural Parade)
Laguna (SSB)
Rinoa (SSB, Angel Wing Bolt)

Completely the Squall show, and even his BSB2's starting to age just a little. Selphie's obviously in the party too, but she's going to have a really hard time healing with just the SSB. Past that... I dunno. These SBs definitely don't seem to work together well at all.
What a fuddy duddy.

Is the accessory we are getting the the VIII event poison resist (element) or Poison resist (stupid ass status ailment)? I think I am up to 3 elemental ones now.
Tough.... Don't blame us. Blame yourself or God.
