Bring along 5 towels, 5 vaccines, and a lot of electrodes.

Beware, spoilers below:

Your choice of accessories is completely up to you here, and it can be a difficult decision. This battle happens right after Kleoneo, and you have no time to heal up or switch accessories. So you can either accessorize for Kleoneo, or accessorize for Bethina. I chose the latter, and I would encourage you to do so as well.

Bethina attacks with water, and has the potential to poison. I found the poison to be a bigger threat than the lack of damage reduction from the towels, so I opted for everyone to have a vaccine equipped. Again, the choice is yours.

Bethinas 1st form -- ~10K HP.

This part of the battle is pretty straightforward. Bethina has an attack that can hit the whole party; make sure to keep Alina using ameliorate, and watch her MP levels. I found having 2 or 3 people focus on attacking while 1 or 2 people sent gather to the attackers to be an effective strategy. Keeping Hoston at level 5 gather and continuing to use his space divide did around 2K of damage to Bethina (I was level ~40, roughly 100 PP). Zellinis fried shrimp or pyro petrol move would also be an excellent choice as well if Hoston does not know space divide by the time you get here. Keep HP and MP up (don't be afraid to use chilis and watermelons here to keep gather high), and prepare for the 2nd form.

Bethina 2nd form -- ~30K HP

Bethina's 2nd form has multiple targets to hit here, so switch from using single target attacks to using magic like Fireball, supernova, lavafall, pier pyromar, toxic plant, or arctica. With my setup, Zellini and Hoston were my two fastest, and were able to get off attacks before Bethina did. So I focused on keeping their gather up so they could use their level 4 gather spells (whichever is your two fastest should be who you focus on to attack with). NOTE: Bethina can attack twice per turn. Bethina has a couple of attacks to watch out for: a poison attack that also damages, and an insta kill attack. Vaccines here are critical, so you don't lose extra gather, and your party actual listens to your commands, and a plentiful supply of electrodes to revive fallen members. Don't be afraid to take a turn or two to just preform upkeep on your party (reviving, restoring HP/MP/gather, etc). Keep HP high by healing with Alina, and don't be stingy with using items in this battle, there is no new game + (yet), so there is no detriment to using them now to make this battle less painful. The head will be the last part to destroy (it definitely has the most HP), so at this point you can switch attacks that focus on a single target if you're running low on MP/gather and items that restore those. With some patience and persistence you will succeed. There is a lengthy amount of dialogue post battle, and also a choice to make. There is no post credit FMV/extra scene/etc, so feel free to skip the credits; unless you want to sit through 15 - 20 minutes of kickstarter backers.
