Yoshi's already said he's got plans for him.
The idea I came up with was for gilly to be this games Maat. You'd have to fight him for each level cap increase [when they're implemented] and each time he'd come back stronger, and with a new bag of tricks [enkidu, eight arms, various job abilities from different jobs, ect], thinking he'd bested you. There'd be a long term rivalry built up this way that would fit his character, and potentially be very funny.
I'd still want there to be a full party fight w/ him @ full strength, but I think this would be really cool.
I wonder how close this is to what they're actually gonna do with him. What're all of your thoughts/ideas on this? also, can anyone find quotes/links to where yoshi mentions him?
edit: if this game has FFXI luck, you'd have a massive group spend the whole night fighting him, and all he'd drop is an Excalipoor.
