Transforming Opponents

In normal combat, as soon as you have dealt more damage to an opponent than it has HP, it will die and have no further bearing on the combat until you get rewards at the end.

However some opponents will transform into a different opponent once you kill them. Others will transform into new forms when you meet certain conditions, such as setting them on fire.

Spading is needed for specifics on how exactly this transformation takes place. Do effects carry over? Does the HP carry over if it transforms before killing it- Always? Never? Depends on opponent?

2 more copies of that opponent Opponent death.

* Note the Writhing Hologram splits twice, so you have to fight 6 more copies.

Not sure if the Phoenix transforms into a new opponent (also named Phoenix) or just alters its stats in some way. For now, I'm assuming any opponent that can change stats is probably different.
