"Aerial attack that hits nearby flying enemies."
— In-game description

Pilla is a Photon Blast generated by certain MAGs in Phantasy Star Online. Once summoned, this sorcerer-like entity unleashes a powerful aerial attack that hits nearby enemies with a barrage of energy.

Although its in-game description states that the blast hits "flying" enemies, this is not entirely accurate. The attack is able to damage all enemies, regardless if they are flying, in the circular radius around the player character that summoned it as long as they are not resistant to light elemental damage.

Phantasy Star Online

In Phantasy Star Online, a mag can utilize up to 3 different photon blasts on its attack palette when it levels up to level 10, level 35 and level 50. The type of photon blast obtained by each specific level is determined by what the mag evolves into.

Of the 6 available photon blasts in the game, each one can be either powered up by members of the party when they donate PB strength or by performing a PB chain. Each member will be marked with a number that will determine when their PB will be unleashed on the enemy if they decide to chain. Everyone in the chain as well as those who donated will obtain the benefits of the blast.
