You’d be mostly only fighting a single target. Therefore, Digimon with single target damage would be best. For Clash Battles at level 7 or higher, bosses will also start dealing a lot more damage and more health. In this case, you need to think about a composition that can both withstand and dish out the damage. You have to think about the DPS rank too. There can be occasions where lasting the timer can help you deal the damage.
As usual, pay attention to the passive, main and sub skills. In this mode, you would be looking for skills that buff the team, and reduces the enemy defenses. Damage over time depends on the situation. If the boss has pursuit or counter skills, it can trigger off the damage over time, and you’d find yourself dying too quickly. Unfortunately, damage over time effects also don’t usually work very well against bosses, dealing chip damage at best. Don’t expect too much out of them. All ally buffs are generally preferable. If you have any Digimon that provide specific ally buffs, you’ll have to see your team composition and judge from there.
Digimon like WarGreymon are great for Clash Battles: it can lower the boss’ PWR and does strong single-target damage. It is also decently survivable solo. It would be best for bosses that actually deal PWR damage (thanks to its debuff), though its respectable damage can see it be slotted into any team.
You’ll be fighting against other players in this mode. You should be looking for a synergistic team! Consider your strategy and see if you are able to rush to take down the other team, or to outlast. You can also check the in-game list of trending Digimon to see what you can try to aim for: whether you can or want to follow the current meta, or to build counters.
One of the readily available ways for you to check on Digimon is the Trending Digimon list. You can build the same kind of team with the most popular Digimon, or you make a counter against them. You would prefer area of attack (AoE) damage: would you prefer dealing ~500% damage to one Digimon, or ~200% to 5 Digimon (which makes it a total of 1000% damage)?
Sometimes you could try building a team around a single Digimon like Daemon. It has a skill to draw aggro, which plays into its passive: raises PWR by 15% when receiving damage. Throw on a Counter plugin, and surround it with healers or defense buffers, and it will mow down whatever that can’t kill it! Its regen ability will trigger with every action, including counters and auto attacks, so it’ll be one tough Digimon to take down.
If we take Wisemon into consideration, it may not be able to Digivolve to a higher rank, but the sheer value of buffs enables the team to perform better than you may expect.
Defense makes your effective HP higher than you might think, and healing back up will make your Digimon nigh immortal. Raw DEF and DEF skills cannot be underestimated. Sometimes, if there’s a Digimon that inflicts a status like Blind, you might even want to put in WarGreymon simply to counter that, and it’ll serve as a decent sponge too.
You will be facing against multiple waves of enemies, so survivable Digimon are important to make it through them. This is not where glass cannons are recommended! Devoted Digimon/Healers shine here, to keep your team healthy. What we’d like to stress here is that Underworld enemies deal a lot of damage, and you’d be facing wave after wave of enemies that start with full HP! A Digimon capable of resurrecting others is also extremely helpful.
Waves can bring various different status effects with them, so nullifying or healing them is another thing to keep in mind. The general idea of having no composition restrictions on skill effects also applies here. You should consider having Tenacious Digimon where you can.
It’s also a viable strategy to dump all your best Plugins onto a single Digimon which can deal area of attack damage. Have your other Digimon support just one unit, and hope to clear the stage. Once you clear a stage in the Underworld, you will not be able to challenge it again. Here, you’re mostly looking to just make it through, even if with just a single Digimon.
