You're in the bizarre world of Moonside, and you finally reach the Evil Mani Mani statue after quite a winding journey. This evil statue somehow concentrates the evil influence of Giygas, making people do strange and bad things. You'll see an old man standing near the statue before the fight who claims that he is not Monotoli (which means that he probably is), but the man disappears after noticing you there. Now is your chance to destroy this bad influence on the world. Talk to it and it will silently attack.
It's just you and Jeff up against this thing. It can do Flash β, which can kill you instantly. It uses PSI Magnet to drain your PP, and it can emit a green light, which will neutralize all PSI Shields and status effects.
Because of the threat of instant death from the Flash β spell (called glorious light when it attacks), don't waste any time. If you bring a Big Bottle Rocket, use it. Better yet, bring at least two. Otherwise, use your most powerful attacks on every turn, healing up only when absolutely necessary. PSI Rockin is the best move for Ness, and Jeff should shoot Bottle Rockets and any other weapons he has.
Once you defeat the Evil Mani Mani, it is broken in half and its evil power dissipates, revealing that Moonside was just an illusion. A little mouse in the room tells you that you were wandering aimlessly with a distant look in your eyes. If you hadn't been trapped in an illusion, you could have walked right up to the Evil Mani Mani and made quick work of it, but the statue's evil power was too strong. Thank goodness it's gone!
Now that you've freed yourself from the illusion world of Moonside, you can leave Jackie's Café, whereupon several people will accost you.
