Entry location: Last boss battle of Character Mode
How to beat Pride: I discovered multiple ways and methods to beating Pride, but one of them was way quicker, and a lot easier than the rest. Ok, so if you have every Alchemy book, then you've got this covered. If you don't, make sure you have Kimblee's book, the gray one. When the battle starts, summon a wall and jump on top of it. In the American edition, Pride doesn't jump, so you'll be able to avoid most of his attacks from up here. When he jumps into the sky, get off the wall, and run in one direction. If need be, stop, then continue running, just don't change directions. When Pride lands, use Kimblee's alchemy to power up your melee attacks to have a devastating bomb-like effect. [You can do this at any time, it doesn't wear off and only takes effect when you actually hit him]. Directly after using your alchemy, go to punch Pride. You will automatically miss, but turn around as fast as you can, and punch again. If you make contact an explosion will occur and Pride will go flying. At least 1/3 of his health will be gone. Continue this proccess until he's defeated and the stage is cleared. If you need more alchemy material, an easy way I figured out is to make a wall when Pride is sending those projectile "sword sweeps" ,or whatever you want to call them, at you. Everytime one hits your wall, a blue alchemy sphere will appear, and you can pick it up to gain more material.
