All Captured Monster Skills in Octopath Traveler 2 for Ochette

Gotta catch (and possibly eat) 'em all!

Ochette, as far as I can tell, is just a cat girl Pokemon trainer. She can carry six monsters (seven, if you count Mahina or Ackal) and will periodically catch monsters upon defeating them or lowering their health. Each monster captured has one of two purposes: to become meat or to do battle. Here are all the captured monster skills in Octopath Traveler 2.
