You can also synthesise even more three-monster-spot monsters, like Canzar, Rigor Mortex and many more!


You can also play through the game normally, but you can also play on other things. There are better monsters to create, more areas to discover, more bosses to defeat.

You can also battle online against players and win rare monsters you can't get anywhere else!

You can face off against ultimate bosses and still come out on top!
