Pixls are a secondary party member with no HP or defense, and cannot be attacked by an enemy.

Each Pixl has its own unique ability that is activated by pressing 1 button. You can only have 1 Pixl on the field at any one time (excluding Tippi), but you can change Pixls at any time via menu screen. Pixls, like characters, are sometimes unusable due to seperation.
