Special attention has been given to the Boss battles which were made considerably harder.
To up the ante even more, in-battle item use has been disabled (not including hold items) and the battle style has been permanently set to set.
The exp curve has been alterd as well to accomodate these changes.
The Fairy type as well as the physical/special split have been implemented in this hack.
