So, each pet has plus values and status amounts for Melee, Ranged, and Tech. However, are Ranged and Melee completely irrelevant unless you get the Pet Switch Strike/Pet Switch Shot skills and activate them?
Basically even if it's not the meta, I prefer Su/Te for the consistent PP regen and the ability to support my pets and allies better, so should I not even bother with worrying about using Melee or Ranged candies and plus values?
Or do different pet PAs use different stat modifiers/bonuses for damage calculations?
I'm trying not to waste resources and that means being cautious about my candy boxes. I presume Crit Rate and such is always golden, as is flat damage bonus and other supplemental stuff. Basically the biggest impact will be which cookies I use.
