Hello, I'm currently replaying the game and I discovered that rng that determines the auto commands and obtaining or not a seru after defeating it keep running while in battle.
Basically, you can save a state before defeating a seru, if you don't absorb it, just reload state and try again. After 4 or 5 tries I'd recommend letting a couple seconds pass and saving a new state, then repeat the process.
I know this is not really legit, but at this point in my life I don't have the patience to keep farming/grinding over and over, so emulators with fast-forward and savestates really make this more enjoyable for me. The game has aged well, but it feels really slow.
I hope this helps someone.
Of course if you have an Ivory Book your chances are increased by 30%, so you should use it too when trying to get a new seru.
