Thanks to all. I'll try some of what I've read when I play the game, tonight. That Eidolon that I'm facing is kicking my ass!!
You probably mean Bahamut. Use lots of Slow and Imperil on him with Fang, that will drive up the Gestalt bar much faster.
That's exactly who I'm up against. He kills me almost instantly AND, the battle takes place after a cutscene. My go to team is Lightning, Sazh (he casts haste and other positive attributes on the team) and Vanille (an awesome sabateur!). As soon as the cutscene ends, I'm forced to use Fang instead of Sazh. On top of that, even if I choose a team consisting of the pre-determined characters, the game completely screws up my carefully chosen "Paradigms". Then, Bahamut kills me again.
After three frustrating tries, I threw my controller and said I'd never play FF13, again. I'll give your technique a shot, though. This game is all I've been playing for a week. I've never let a FF game get the better of me, before. This game won't be the first one.
The only paradigms you'll ever need for that fight is SAB/MED/MED (with Fang/Lightning/Vanille disposition) and SAB/RAV/SAB. Always make sure Slow is on because Bahamut attacks extremelly fast.
Whenever you're stuck on an Eidolon fight, Libra is your best friend. Using Libra twice or a Librascope will unlock the descriptions in the R1 enemy description which gives you clues as to what each specific Eidolon is susceptible.
