Pursuing Pesce (探求のぺーシェ, Tankyū no Pēshe) is a Shadow in the series.
Pursuing Pesce shadows appear in the 3rd and 4th halls of the Steamy Bathhouse in the Midnight Channel. They are the only way to encounter the Phantom Master in Persona 4. They will attempt to inflict the Fear status on a party member every turn they get using Evil Touch until they run out of SP. When a character is afflicted, they will use Summon to bring a Phantom Master to the field before continuing to try to afflict characters with the Fear status.
Care should be taken that the Yu Narukami not be afflicted with Fear, due to the Phantom Master potentially taking its turn before they can be healed and using Ghastly Wail, killing the protagonist and causing a game over.
Upon being defeated, they may drop the Firm Cloth material. Selling 10 Firm Cloth at Daidara will unlock the Doumaru male armor for sale.
Persona 4 GoldenEdit
Pursuing Pesce shadows appear in Baths 1 through 5 and Bath 8 of the Steamy Bathhouse within the Midnight Channel. They will attempt to use Evil Touch to instill Fear in the party and then summon a Phantom Master. Unlike Persona 4, they may summon multiple Phantom Masters per battle.
Upon defeat, they may also drop Iolite that can be exchanged at Shiroku Pub.
