I'm confused about Phoenix being summoned by the "Phoenix Pinon". According to finalfantasy.wikia.com:
Summons Phoenix if used in battle, fully reviving all KO'ed allies and dealing Fire damage to all opponents. Once Phoenix has been summoned once, it has a random chance to appear to save the player from a Game Over. The more in the player's inventory, the greater the chance of Phoenix appearing.
Does that mean Phoenix will only appear in the battle the pinon was used? Or is there a chance it will appear in any battle thereafter (similar to Odin) without having to use another pinon?
