Tactics: Zimbalon attempts to keep his foes at range, using Ranged Full Attacks and double moves alternately. He only uses melee attacks if surrounded by foes. Also, he uses his Sleep Arrows on a foe that looks like a leader in an attempt to subdue them for interegation later that, hopfully, is most likely to have important information.
