It's /mon/day, what are some of your fave monster RPGs?
>>
>>2542654
Arc the Lad2,. and the monster portion was a side hustle, yet it is better than most monster games till this day.
>>
Digimon World 1 is my favorite /mon/ game of all time.
>>
>>2542654
I have a soft spot in my heart for Spectrobes

Has anyone else played coromon? Judging if its worth my time for a pokeclone
>>
>>2542654
Monster Sanctuary was very good the last time I played it a year ago, and there's going to be free DLC in the next few months. There's definite flaws with the game that the devs and other players on the Discord server do not see as flaws, however. Make of that what you will.
>>

Yes and they like to post on these and /vp/ threads. Definitely worth playing though but I got bored in the second zone.
>>
Finally saw a copy of MR4 go up for $50 on eBay, so I pounced on it. I haven't played it in like 15 years.
What a different experience when you're not a stupid kid and actually understand what to do. That's been my experience with replaying all of these games in the past couple of years. I'm enjoying it even more than I did then, even while seeing the flaws more clearly. Dungeon crawling could be more interesting and better balanced, but it was a cool idea overall.

I kind of wish they'd make a Monster Rancher that straight up apes Digimon World. Traveling a world with a mon would be a lot of fun.
>>
>>2542654
Damn this one SUCKS ASS. Too much boring text, the dungeon design is boring and the difficulty is spread so poorly that you can just mash the attack button on the highest difficulty and then when you arrive to the boss the difficulty spikes like crazy. FUCK Digimon, why can't they have one good game?
>>
>>2543108
Digimon Survive is coming soon, anon.
Soon...

Same here. A shame few people played it. I have a cart of Beyond the Portal too. It's funny how similar the mining minigame is to Fossil Fighters Champions

>>2543108
I agree. 50 hours of low-effort anime dialogue, sparse repeated dungeons, and some retarded ass plotlines

Forgive me for being the "reply to everyone" guy

>I kind of wish they'd make a Monster Rancher that straight up apes Digimon World. Traveling a world with a mon would be a lot of fun.
That's all I ever wanted from a Monster Rancher game. I love the monster designs, and battles, but I want to be able to explore the world with my monsters too. Not jus hop around through menus.
>>
>>2543108
For whatever reason they want their games to be story based dungeon crawlers instead of monster raising sims. Though I think there have been some newer Digimon games lately in the Digmon World 1 style again. Only took them almost 20 years.
>>
>>2543108
>FUCK Digimon, why can't they have one good game?
The pet raising sims are good. The party based RPGs have all been okay to bad. The DS games are almost good, but the dungeon design is horrifically boring.
>>
>>2543108
Dunno, the evolution/degeneration and the branching evolutive paths are great mechanics.
Why can't they make decent dungeons.
>>

Demikids is lame as fuck, the only saving point are the demon lolis.

Dragon Quest Monsters for RPGs
Monster Rancher 2 for pet simulators

>>2542923
The type system is a huge downgrade imo but the SP system is pretty cool and the pixel art is great other than it's just a straight forward pokemon clone
Also some abilities have effects out of combat which I though was pretty neat
>>
>>2543108
The story gets a bit better if you turn off your internal censors and just embrace the cringe black hole that is Nokia.
Not much better, but, if you can mind break yourself into thinking she's entertaining, the moment to moment story does improve.

Also, the first game really MUST be played with the female protagonist. She was added at the last second, so all the dialogue still assumes a male protagonist, so you have some top tier swag yuri energy.

Naedoko's Demon Ground is a really fun H-game. As far as mon games where the mons are generally disposable, SMT is definitely better overall because of the fusion and press turn systems, but I like how the itemization mechanic encourages collecting them all to see what item (and occasionally what mon) they turn into. If you don't like tentacles though, you're out of luck.
>>
>>2545142
I wish the relationships and the attempt at a first party creepypasta weren't obnoxious.
But it's really cool otherwise, even if the game is very frontloaded and spoiled by the trailer and pretty much any gameplay video so you can't actually go in blind.

I had never heard of the game until a friend of mine told me to play it, so I went in blind and enjoyed it a lot. The characters really were kind of annoying so I kind of tuned them out after a while. The body modifications you could do to them was fun though.

>>2545878
No, but that's neat.

Origins combat system kinda sucks, but the mining mini game is super fun.
Beyond the Portals is the closest the trilogy got to greatness.

I'm playing this game right now and it's the most esoteric shit I've ever played. Had to look up a guide just to figure out what to do when my Digimon takes a shit in the street like a lower-caste Indian.
>>
>>2544127
I p[played digimon CS and it's fucking shit. Can't remember how far I got, maybe like chapter 15 before dropping it, I personally think Persona 4 is shit but this is even fucking worse

It's definitely hard to say.
As generally unpopular as it is, I'm tempted to say Digimon World: Next 0rder. For some reason despite all it's faults, the general loop and progression throughout it all has led to me replaying it plenty of times just because I find it such a satisfying experience.
Runner-ups would probably be Monster Rancher 2, Fossil Fighters (both first and Champions), Shin Megami Tensei V and Monster Hunter Stories 2.

Alright, beat the story of Yokai Watch 1. The befriending mechanic got a bit better as I played and unlocked all the foods and bonus heart Yokai but it's still my biggest issue with the game. I was a little disappointed with how much cooler the late game designs got, I was digging how ugly everything was early game. I think now I'll cheat my team up to level 99, blitz the post game content and move on to 2.

I did when it first came out. I'd say it's main issue is that it starts off really slow for the first two areas, but picks up after reaching the big city.
It is overall pretty slow though, namely in just it's traversing the overworld because of how big the areas are. I think even with 2's similarly large areas they do a better job of making it feel like it doesn't take as long like it does in the first.

Pokemon is good for romhacks and fangames.
That's it. BW/2, and maybe Colloseum/XD are the only official games in the series that hold up to real games, and even then not super well.

Beat the third Oni. I loved how intense the final postgame fights got between the item spam, managing soultimates, and having to remove inspirits. Kinda like pokemon, the battle system essentially plays itself the entire game and then shows you a glimpse of greatness at the very end. Final team was Shogunyan/Snartle/Betterfly in the front, and Goldenyan/Kyubi/Tengu in the back. Goldenyan with the Tengu taunt inspirit was the absolute MVP of the final Oni fights, I got him off Crank-a-kai very early on and he was levelled with a +Def attitude the entire game, incredible tank. Overall I enjoyed the experience, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing 2 with some much needed QOL upgrades!
>>
Ok, since the beginning of the year i started to watch the last season of Pokemon (the last season I saw was Jhoto i think) and it left me wanting to play pokemon again (last game that i played was Emerald) and others monster catching games.
Playing now Pokemon Moon, Yokai Watch 2 and Coromon, surprisingly i'm having a blast playing them.
>>
>>2552073
Hows coromon? I started playing but always end up perfect hunting
>>
>>2542923
I'm loving it. It's pokemon 2. The wiki isn't complete so you can't look anything up. That's the part of my nostalgia that I could never get scratched. Aside from that, I'm not the best pokemon player so the difficulty is good. The coromon look ok. The battle pacing is about the same as pokemon. The QoL features are incredible. Catching a mon and swapping it with a party member is great. Just got stuck at boss 2. He's lvl 35 and my best is level 31 and I'm out of trainers to fight. Well worth 20 bucks.

Cybersleuth was pretty fucking good. Have to admit I didn’t expect the “issues” the teens faced around them to be that relatable to typical Japanese teens. Hackers, leaked nudes, blackmailers, the whole after school maid waitress thing, etc. Props as well for not over complicating the Digimon mechanics and building it with the intent of being a standalone game rather than possible “future proofing” which only hinders creativity. Fuck Pokémon.

Not much, capturing monsters is optional, you can party up with them or with the villagers but imo monsters are more worth it. You can ride monsters, get them to help you with your farm or just use them as a steady source of income and sustenance.
>>
>>2555764
Man I never once took a monster on a quest with me. Or a villager for that matter. Didn't finish the game though. Does it become necessary at a certain point? There seems to many ways to play those games.

>Have to admit I didn’t expect the “issues” the teens faced around them to be that relatable to typical Japanese teens.
Please tell me you're a Lost Japanese who played Cybersleuth in it's native language; in English, these "issues" are namedropped or played as jokes. There's no inward-looking in Cyberslut.

>>2557226
Agreed though. It's an interesting concept but it's unbalanced to the point where unstacking just has no real strategic uses, from what I played so far anyways. The fact you have to start a battle stacked is a testament to the favoritism towards it. Also the fact that the protagonists don't have a Small form, only Medium and Large, it limits the customizability as it means you'll always have to not use your favorite L or M mirage on of the two protags.

Can anyone help me start Digimon World? I restarted my playthrough and I've been focusing on training and making sure he/she/it shits in the toilet, I give him/her/it meat but the game says he/she/it's spoiled. What am I doing wrong? I train the stupid bitch all day and hates me.
Is there an item I can buy to pick up shit in the world? On my previous playthrough, where I got Bakemon, the damn thing shit goddamn everywhere.
Also, if the game is dubbed and officially translated, why is all the in-world text and voice barks are in Japanese? What's the deal?

Play it with a guide. Not even kidding, that's the intended playstyle of the game. There's a handful of hidden stats that you need to keep track of. It's not just training, but weight that matters and some other shit.
>>
>>2560310
Why is your mon shitting all over? Take him to the damn potty. And you need a Numemon or a Sukamon to clean up the poop - they eat it.
>why is all the in-world text and voice barks are in Japanese?
The backgrounds are all pre-rendered. I imagine they didn't want to run all those renders again. I think it adds to the weirdo world design, personally.
>>
>>2560310
Have you been running away from fights a lot? That makes your digimon real pissy.
No, you need to memorize where the toilets are. I think what you're supposed to do is schedule around pooing because I'm pretty sure digimon are regular and until a digimon evolves or dies they will always need to shit at the same time every day.
>>
>>2560310
>Is there an item I can buy to pick up shit in the world?
if you digivolve into one of the shitmons like numemon or sukamon they'll eat the shits off the ground.
>>
>>2559625
Like most things in this game it's a lot of good ideas and hard work ruined by 1 or 2 really fucking dumb design decisions.
Trade hub is cool but max 3 day listings + 5% fee just for posting means it's unusable.
Sticker collecting is cool but the severe restrictions on trading them makes completing the collection without a second account you can mass-reset pretty much impossible.
Dojo wars are cool but clubs are already talking about sandbagging them because you need to fight the current holders to use the Dojo park.

It sucks watching a team of people pour so much time and effort into this game for it to constantly be ruined because the Director is retarded.

If you train too much you overwork them and they die. Too much meat and they get fat. If you never discipline they get spoiled. Dip your toes into the world little by little to expand your town before really worrying about evolving. Get a champion and go. You should say least have the upgraded meat farm, a shop, a restaurant, and a clinic by the time your first mon dies.

The problem is that Pokemon's depth is practically impossible to have against AI opponents. There's tons of variety, but none of it is ever remotely utilize in any of the actual solo experiences.
And even when it comes to competitive, there will always be a single best meta pick in any given generation. Your success could potentially entirely hinge on if you have a counter to that meta mon, and overall there's a lot of hinging on the counters in general for success. Don't have a Landorus-T counter? Then you better play really damn smart, your opponent play like an idiot, or get a lucky crit.

Bottom line, the only possible way Pokemon's battle system is anything special is when you add other people into it, as when it's against AI, 99% of the time you win by clicking the super effective move.

Also just because you say 'SMT press turn doesn't count' doesn't invalidate it, and the games allow themselves to have depth without the need for human players to make use of the tools the game has for it.
Fossil Fighters 1-2 encourages team building for more than just type advantage. Attack range and support skills also play an important part, as well as switching around the positions of your vivosaurs as the situation calls for it. Like Pokemon's dropped Rotation Battles but actually having thought put into it.
Monster Hunter Stories 2, despite the claim it's just 'rock paper scissors' has multiple other mechanics in play, from elemental strength/weaknesses, to specific monster parts being weak to specific weapon attack types. The optional boss monsters of the game require far more strategy and learning of their patterns than any single-player Pokemon battle.

The genre is so wide and varied that trying to dictate a single definitive best battle system is pointless and ignores the strengths each system has on their own merits.

Because there is no depth.
Smogon tiers exist precisely because Pokemons balance is an absolute fucking joke of powercreep and you need to MAJORLY divide it up and create all kinds of one-offs and exceptions to game rules to get something resembling a balanced battle experience.

Temtem actually pulled it off and they did it by just cutting 95% of the shit out of the game.

just make sure they dont get tired, you'll know when they show a sweat bubble. this reduces their lifespan. so just count how many times you can train before getting tired and rest every now and then. i think resting 2 to 3 times at punimon's chair should get rid of their tiredness completely. eventually you get a clinic and its better to rest there.
also, i believe the hp and mp traning tire them out faster than the other ones. they also get more or less tired depending on their evolution stage.
>>
>>2561703
Its crazy how well received this game was and then they decided "Lets make our games typical JRPG linear dungeon crawlers instead"
>>
>>2561689
oh yeah and the game can be kinda buggy, if you're emulating it i recommend using multiple save states just in case.
>>
>>2561689
Those are the happiness and discipline meters. Long story short you want the colors to move to the right to make the faces turn yellow. They effect evolution and your digimon gets too sad a moth will appear and eat its stats.
>>
>>2561689
more discipline means your digimon is easier to raise and command but it also makes them live less. happiness makes them live longer.
and as a heads up, sometimes your digimon will refuse consuming items you give him like meds and stuff. scold them and try giving it to them again.

Jijimon said that sometimes death is fine and sometimes it's a full restart, how do I make sure my digimon's stats reincarnate?

Raise your tamer rank by getting medals (achievements), winning tournaments after you unlock them, and getting a digimon to perfect/ultimate stage.
The better it is the more strength is carried over.

Drill Tunnel will give you the restaurant eventually. As for those other two one of the digimon in the city tells you about the broken bridge and going to a beach in the east at a certain time and booing that will open up the areas you can find those establishments owners.

Gabumon got his ass beat by wormmon (kunemon?) so I had to load a save, but I've gotten the grind down of attacking reasonable enemies.

Just upgraded my watch to level B in YW2. The game is much better and bigger than YW1 so far, I definitely see what anons were talking about with the QoL upgrades. Both games have been really soulful with the amount of cutesy side content shit you can do, I always feel like I'm progressing various questlines and minigames when I run around the map. A big reason nu-pokemon is disappointing for me is that they've cut out most of this "pointless" filler that is actually the meat of the game. A bit weird that they give you the warping mirrors before the bike in 2 but hey I'm not complaining. So far my criticism is that I haven't really been encouraged to use many new Yokai. The A rank butterfly is available sooo early, Snartle is still OP, etc... I've got my nigga Pinkipoo on the team though so I'm happy.
>>
>>2562915
There's also an absolute shitton of postgame content for YKW2 as well. Also I don't mind not being 'encouraged' to change Yo-kai. I like having the option to use what I like or switch as I see fit.
In YKW3 there's a mechanic that actually lets you change a yo-kai's rank, so an E-rank could become an S-rank, so really it's free game about what exactly you want to use, even if some have better abilities and moves regardless.
>>
>>2562640
There's a shitton of mons to recruit for the restaurant, though the easiest is Drill Tunnel like >>2562717 said. Item shop and clinic are both tied to the same quest on the eastern side of what you can reach, you should listen to the rumors. That will also net you someone else highly useful for raising mons.

Sometimes that will happen. So a quick rundown on evolution requirements and how Numemon happened to you. There are 4 groups in DW1 that govern evolution: Stats, Weight, Care Mistakes, and "Bonus". You need to hit 3 of those to be able to evo into a mon. For stats it's "At least this" for all required stats, for weight it's within 5g of the target, and for care mistakes there's a min or max. That gets reset every evo so if you need 5 to evo to champion and less than 2 to evo to ultimate, you can still get that line. There are only 3 actual care mistakes in the game: Pooping on the ground, not sleeping an entire sleep cycle, and not feeding your mon within 90 minutes of the prompt appearing. If the timer hits 0 because you were training you get 2 care mistakes instead of 1. Bonus is just random shit like Happiness, Discipline, battles, techniques, and sometimes digimon just have a "preferred" evo. Using your Gabumon as an example, one of the evos he can get is Centarumon. Centarumon requirements are 100 Brains, <=3 care mistakes, 30g weight, >=60 Discipline, >=28 Techniques. So since it's early game you would need some combo of 100 brains, 3 or fewer care mistakes, 25-35g weight, and greater than or equal to 60 discipline. If you don't meet the requirements for ANY mon(usually due to care mistakes), you get Numemon. And you get Sukamon when it fills the shit meter. There are also other evos that are special and have their own dumb requirements, like Nanimon needing you to scold a rookie with 0 Happiness and 0 Discipline.

If you don't want a numemon you can restart, but honestly it's not a big deal. You could also use this as a chance to fuck around and learn the layout of the land with no fear of the consequences. Let your mon starve, let it die, who cares. Just learn where stuff is and hoard items.

Without any hint of irony, ShotaxMonsters.
For an hgame, it actually encourages team-building by why of certain monsters and attacks having synergy with one another. Some of the boss monsters require actually using statuses to deal with them and not get destroyed, and general use of statuses and type advantage, both elemental and in weapon-type, worthwhile. Equipment is very useful, some even giving new skills. You can only save in-town, making long trips in dungeons very risky as you could lose a lot of progress if you're too reckless. I've heard some describe the dungeon exploration of the game similar to Etrian Odyssey, though I can't confirm that myself as I haven't played those games.
There's a new game+ that lets to transfer over all recruited monsters at level one to use monsters you didn't before from the very start, 3 bonus mini-dungeons for normal difficulty and higher with 3 new bosses, one of which is absolutely brutal, and then another set of 3 bonus fights after you clear that. NG+ also has 4 new classes to choose from, along with a new Insane difficulty option.

It's a genuinely really fun and well-made rpgmaker game. The only thing that stops me from fully recommending it is it's h-scenes, as they're completely unskippable, even on repeat playthroughs. It especially sucks if you aren't into the shit the game is about, being gay shotas. Which I hope is fixed for the sequel. Plus that sequel looks like it's going to have even more depth, with monsters being able to give each other their moves. But couldn't fault anyone for not playing because of that.

You're right. I originally played it for the porn, but I kept playing it for the gameplay.
I've replayed it like, 6 times. Beaten it on every difficulty, maxed out happiness from every monster, have almost 100% gotten all the equipment in the game, and done challenge runs of only using themed teams.
And, genuinely, the h-scenes become more of an annoyance on repeat playthroughs, as they're always the same. You're forced to look at them, one in the middle of a dungeon, and one after you beat a dungeon. The only variety is that you get to pick one of 4 town boys to have a scene with, which actually raise your stats differently depending on who you pick, but I've scene them all so all I can do now is mash through them. So yes, the h-scenes are the biggest reason why I can't fully recommend it, both for their content and their unskippability.
Also some of the secret bosses were genuinely really difficult and probably took like, 5+ tries to beat, with me needing to learn it's patterns and change up my team to deal with them.

I am completely honest with everything I said about it. I do genuinely love of the game for it's gameplay and without it being as in-depth as it is, with all it's content, I wouldn't have played it more than once.
But, can't make you believe me, ultimately.

It's more like Cybersleuth. Just a JRPG. But it's got a special place in my heart. You basically pick between three starter packs of digimon and then level them up and delevel them and shit like that to get digimon.

I've been playing Monster Rancher for the first time on Switch and I've unironically fallen in love with Holly. I woke up at 3am today and spent the next 3 hours lying in bed thinking about her.

I fantasized that I lived on the ranch with her and our Zoom, just the three of us, and even though she was obviously making efforts to connect emotionally with me I forced myself to remain distant and feign indifference to her due to my crippling insecurities and all the emotional walls I'd built up over the years, preferring instead to wallow in my own self-inflicted misery instead of simply admitting that I liked her too. Then one morning I caught her in the stable with her skirt hiked up, playing with Zoom's red rocket. Holly's terror-stricken face went white as she looked at me. She was absolutely emotionally devastated at being discovered in such a shameful act. I told her to go to her room. She left silently. I knew it was my fault this happened. She must be so frustrated, being cooped up on this ranch with me. After I gather my thoughts I went to her room and saw her sitting on her bed, eyes screwed shut, holding a gun to her head (we keep a pistol for self-defense). I screamed her name and lunged forward, knocking the gun away and embracing her in wild emotion. Sobbing, I admit all my feelings for her and how much she means to me. Then we had sex.

Anyway my first monster was a soccer ball with 10 in all stats and he got curbstomped and died in the first tournament, is that normal?

>Anyway my first monster was a soccer ball with 10 in all stats and he got curbstomped and died in the first tournament, is that normal?
No. Your first monster should have like, 70-100 states across the board. Dying from a tournament is an extremely rare thing normally as usually it only ever happens if your monster takes like 2x their health in damage, I believe it was.
>>
>>2580132
Okay, my second monster is a car tire with ~130 across the board so I guess I got lucky this time? The guy keeps saying I didn't summon a monster, only its soul, and I don't know what that means because it's apparently still tournament legal? I think he's saying that because of its species (they were both wheel things). I'm trying not to look anything up online and just play naturally like kid me would. I played some Princess Maker before and it seems to have the same game flow so I'm doing okay I think. I need more Holly in my life though. Does she have the same personality in the anime or did they make her "le angry Misty"?

I had an idea for a Jade Cocoon 2 speedrun route. The current route uses the base Luch (which can be bought from the store at the beginning of the game) however I think the Geraluch might be faster and more consistant.
Pros: Higher speed for potentially outspeeding more enemies as well as missing less often, higher strength growth past baby stage, better compatibility with Monoculus meaning more merge points by merging with it for Imago (which fully evolves it on merge, leading to better growths from the start), and its best compatibility gives the attack Shockwave which is not only better damage than the Luch's Burn Crash but also is an AoE to wipe out multiple enemies at once. Also slightly lower Exp required per level, resulting in faster level ups.
Cons are the Gereluch line's bonus traits are HP Up compared to Luch's Strength Up, lower bulk potentially making it more susceptible to dying, and obviously the fact that you can't just buy it from the store to start with it.
Missing the Strength Up traits are partially mitigated by the fact that the Infinite Cognet glitch exists, which can be exploited to buff its Strength to obscene levels.
>>
>>2587451
I remember being excited when I walked into a used game store in like 2005 and seeing Jade Cocoon 2 on the wall. I had no idea it existed until that point. I immediately bought it.
And was immediately disappointed with how different it was. Haven't played it again to this day. Anyway, if I can get over all the changes, do you think it would be worth trying it again solely for the gameplay?
>>
>>2587475
I enjoy it, but I've also never played the first game so I didn't come in with any specific expectations.

The main issue I have with it is the dialogue/localization being really bad. At least it's bad in a so-bad-its-kinda-funny woolseyism way. But a lot of the lines, especially the voiced lines, are noticeably translated independently of every other line in the conversation. You'll frequently see characters refer to the person they're talking to by name multiple times in a conversation. Characters will say things like "Kahu's working hard, too." when talking TO Kahu. They'll frequently emphasize the wrong words.

Actually the dialogue being a blind idiot translation is my 2nd biggest issue. My biggest issue is the bugs related to certain abilities. Any ability with the name [GENUS] Killer, like Bug Killer or Drac Killer is bugged to do nothing. And since there's a shitload of them, that's just a bunch of useless crap. Also there are like 3 or 4 attacks that you just can't get because they fucked up and didn't let you get the Kalma for them.

But aside from those, it's still fun building up your team of beasts, going through the forests, and fighting in the arena.

That's how my first playthrough went too. You need to keep in mind that this ISN'T a Pokemon ripoff. Hitting weaknesses may take you far but you're in for a rude awakening around the last fifth or so of the game.
Pay attention to a monster's passive skills and how they can synergize with other monster's skills. Also, Magmapillar is endgame material. You want to keep it in your party.

There's one quirky mini-boss squad fight that's WAY overtuned.
The one in the lava place.
Just go somewhere else until your team comes together a bit better, getting to a new ability tier is a big deal.

For overall strategies, doing big burst damage is actually pretty tough unless you build your team entirely around it and have access to enablers.
I think the strategy most people use for mid-game is just throw as many debuffs and DoTs out as you can.

Pokemon didn't start as a story heavy RPG series, it focused more on letting you go on an adventure and find new creatures to collect. If it had always been dialog heavy from Red and Green you would see less people complain, but with the increase in "plot" and dialog the games also began watering down the actual adventuring part.
>>
>>2591556
This but to add: story has been implied, vague, exploration based and decision driven in most old games (gen 6 and 7 uses this little and poorly). Most of the lore there is you read on books or talking to npcs.

Dragon Quest is for the whole family, and while it is a multimedia franchise, the games don't make up less than 10% of total sales like Pokemon. Also it's a singleplayer series as far as I'm aware, unless there's an MMO.
>>2591667
Digimon is definitely for "more mature" kids than Pokemon. Pokemon is like 3-13, Digimon is more 13-15 (or 15-20 in the case of the more modern entries). Digimon are also literally covered in guns and knives the stronger they get, unless they turn into mecha with guns and knives on them.

Ultimately adult Pokemon fans seethe when they get something children enjoy a lot, while forgetting that they not only aged past Digimon but also past the majority of megaten games. So instead of moving onto other monster collecting games, they just play the same games over and over again while bitching about games they haven't played in almost a decade. Many who bitch and moan will play RPGMaker kusoge or gen 3 romhacks that were made by kids who should have moved up to Digimon but wanted to make their own Pokemon game that ends up being horribly cringe-inducing with poor use of swear words and nonsensical violence. No shame in playing those games, I've more than a few romhacks I've completed.
Whenever people say "Pokemon has gotten objectively worse," I've actually played the games as they came out with the exception of RSE (to the point where Kanto pisses me off now) and I can't say they've actually gotten worse. Swish maybe, I didn't play that one but it's a visual downgrade from sumo/usum. None of the Pokemon games are peak RPG, they're baby games for babies with multiplayer feature that works exceptionally well. It's honestly equivalent to saying Call of Duty has gotten worse because it's singleplayer aspect has gone from walking in a straight line through setpieces to walking in a straight line through setpieces.

So?
Pokemon is too.
Monster Hunter is too yet have more effort put into. MH game before world were just like Pokemon. Rehashes every year, yet MH team was ambitious to make world as it is. Something Pokemon will never get, cause GF devs are real gamers.

Also. MH is also made for toddlers.
>unless there's an MMO.
Google is Right there.

the real kicker is the Yokai Watch had more effort put into it than Pokemon yet still became popular.
Story was decent. Not too complex, but not too boring and bear bones than Pokemon.
The maps are well design unlike Pokemon {hall ways}. Remember when Masuda said that Jap kids got lost in Mt. Corenet. Yet every path in YKW have branching path that would theoritically lead to one being lost. Yet toddlers still beat the game.

All Pokemon get is excuses, excuses, excuses. And the same fags turn around muddy the efforts of other MT games.
It is why Legends sold well although it is shit. (Shit story that doesn't explain lore of sinnoh and 2 conflict combat machines [The worst action and turnbase combat in gaming])
It is why people still brought BDSP. Even when the game shipped unfinished (but every game have patches, you just grew up)

I will never forget that RPG black guy muddying Stories 2 efforts saying "SwSh has more monster, that why Stories 2 look better". Stories 2 has 200 Monster and Legends has 217 monster yet look way worst. I like how faggot even chose to ignore that fact cause it make them release that GF truly don't care.
>>
>>2591739
I don't want to defend Pokemon, but I finished the first Yokai Watch with doing like 4 non-mandatory fights and not recruiting any yokai not obtained through the story.
Simply because I waited the entire time for the story to let met wander through the world and explore it on my own, but it never happened. In many ways, it felt more childish than Pokemon.

Objectively false. Almost every game, sometimes even in the same generation, has a significant gameplay change and overall feel from the last. Hell MH Tri has it's own ambitions with underwater combat and having dark caves. World even wanted to make use of darkness in it's beta footage before it was scrapped.

Yokai Watch isn't a yearly release.
You can hold any pokemon game to a higher standard, all you're going to get is disappointment. The first gen and a half of Pokemon is so broken that without the cards and animes I'd be amazed if Pokemon even took off.

The game is just you going around places. You are not forced into a set path and can fuck around in-between story with side quests.

Your issue was that you assume this game was made with GF design decisions. The same shit happen to me when trying to get a female monster through breeding in DQMTW3d. It turns out all i had to do is use the female staff to get female offspring 100% of the time.

>In many ways, it felt more childish than Pokemon.
Yeah, it was more comedic. But that more than the non-characters in Pokemon that get a fuckton of art.

They games had reused access out the ass. But it still have effort because Action games need more work put into it than turn base. And the Producer Ryozo cares more then Pokemon Producer Masuda. Also, you can't say that releasing G-rank next year shit isn't a little scammy. 4 sold 4mil in Jap only and 4U sold 4mil again WW.
But at the end all that money when into World.

>>2591758
Gajin Hunter said so (lives in Japan) and his daughter (9-10 at this moment), plays and beat some MH game. I believe she started at 4.
They maybe drop the game at G-rank, but MH game in Japan normal sell around 2-4mil. Similar to DQ and Pokemon.

Just because they reuse assets doesn't mean the games are flat-out rehashes. The only games that play very similarly are the Gen 1 and 2 games, and even then Freedom and Freedom Unite got rid of Analog attack, making them feel much different from MH1 and Dos. 3U, 4U, and GenU all have different mechanics to contend with, making each game feel different from the last.
G-rank games are their own can of worms but seems like they're a thing of the past now being replaced with base game expansions.
>using fucking Gaijin Hunter as a point of reference
Yeah no shit kids don't play games intended for their age range. But you wouldn't say GTA or COD are MADE for toddlers.

Bottom line, you don't need to poorly use other franchises as examples of why Pokemon is lazy.

He also know about the culture with DQM games. So he does know about stuff.

I don't know why you think I am attacking your fravourite franchise (MH). All i was trying to say that MH (which has a similiar dev cycle than Pokemon), still tries despite.

Reshashes are a spectrum, it doesn't mean that it have to be AS LAZY as Pokemon, FIFA or COD.

>Bottom line, you don't need to poorly use other franchises as examples of why Pokemon is lazy.

How can YOU criticize something without using examples? That is why /vp/ is shit. They almost never use other games and instead base all their agruements on bullshit GF put in games.

Gaijin Hunter isn't an authority just because he lives in Japan. Literally anyone who does some research can say what he says.
And besides, you weren't using him to say 'hey knows about stuff.' You were using his daughter as an example of kids playing MH, which doesn't actually mean anything in terms of who MH is designed for by your own admission of mention GTA and COD.

Notice how I said 'poorly use.' Examples and comparisons have their uses, but are only tools to get the point across. Pokemon is so obvious in it's flaws that it doesn't even need comparisons, pointing out what's obvious about it is good enough.
You didn't specify that 'rehashes are a spectrum.' You just said MH rehashes in comparison to Pokemon. It's easy to make the assumption that it's saying they're equivalent. I argued why, for all of MH's reuse of assets, that the games on a gameplay level genuinely evolve and change, and it's certainly not something exclusive to World.

My main point is that comparisons between franchises, especially of different genres, are tenuous and the faults of a game or a franchise should be evident within itself, and you don't need to poorly represent a different franchise to make those faults apparent.

I didn't think i had to cause:
*Pokemon & MH (before GenU) Had a somewhat Yearly release.
*MH1-GenU Just look like upscale versions of the previous. This is obvoius with Tri, P3rd, 3U, 4U, Gen & GenU Switch. With GenU looking very outdated
*Both sell around the same amount in Jap
*Both have definitive editions the next year
*Both are doing DLC instead of definitive editions. With MH DLC fixing the base game, whereas Pokemon dlc doesn't.

It doesn't help that MH games are cheap as fuck used. That makes poeple think less of it.
I wasn't really talking about gameplay wise but next time I would be more clear.

Its retarded because its not aimed at kids, its aimed at everyone by their own spokesman. One could argue that they won't make an entry with a darker story, or super difficult mechanics because kids wouldn't enjoy it alongside the rest and it may be true but a game with a simple to follow story and simple mechanics can be entertaining and good. However, there is no excuse for making crappy unfinished games (which is the main complaint).

Yeah I kept thinking there's many things it shares with one of my favorite games (Battle Network) like side-quest missions, cyber-world, light-hearted plot, but I just couldn't. I only enjoyed grinding and raising some plat sukamon to make the grind easier.
Some boss fights it felt nice to evolve in some certain path to make it easier (I remember one where a fixed-damage attack was great) but I really couldn't keep my interest going.
Always felt the game was too close to something I'd like but wasn't quite there.

You should try Soul Hackers. It's 3DS exclusive for anglophones, but it's a fantastic game and follows the exact same plot as CyberSleuth. Key difference being that Soul Hackers is relatively well-written and the dialogue never drags on.
You can also fight a devil-summoning monkey who calls you a retard for not knowing math and trivia.

The ds games had "two" exp bars. One was the actual exp bar, the other was the data exp bar. To Digivolve you need enough lvls from your actual exp bar (which was a combination of all of your data exp) and you need enough data exp (200,000 dark data). It gets hella grindy at later stages.

There are some insects out there who's larval stage is drastically different from their adult stage.
Probably the most apt comparison is something like the antlion, where it's larval stage is a fat burrowing carnivore while it's adult stage is slender, flying, and doesn't even eat.
I do agree though, there absolutely should've been a fight against the actual larval state before it transformed.

They really took out the option of using the gym as a level up system so you spend the entirity of the game going out and fighting random battles. You could technically stil do it but your digimon would be too weak to do anything.
>>
>>2602760
Not really. Sure grinding through battles is the most optimal way to go, but once you recruit Seraphimon his food buff gives huge gym gains.
>>
>>2602098
Well my problem is that Pokemon isn't really designed for that. The whole metagame behind the battle system is built around anticipating possible matchups that would exploit weaknesses in your team and swapping things around accordingly; the actual fights are mostly rote once you understand the mechanics. The only reason you can beat most of the games with a limited team is that the games are easy and don't use the system to its full potential. Not to mention that there's a lot of extraneous gameplay features that assume you're catching lots of Pokemon, like how you wind up with a lot of useless moves on your team unless you get multiple HM slaves. Ideally I'd like something that was built for a limited team and was balanced accordingly.

I do not know what you mean, but I've been meaning to share this.
About a month ago I had a dream I had sex with Alice from SMT, and I mean it was exactly how she looked like from the first game, and I mean her sprite in all her pixelated glory. I saw her blocky self standing there. As we flirted and negotiated through text, I got closer to lift and remove her dress, all my actions dictated through menu option and the cursor picking through them and giving me an approving jingle.
The articles of clothing removing as I picked every option, the top half of the screen becoming a close up of her 16-bit flat chest as I picked the options to lick her small nipples as I received her moans through the text box, and then I woke up.
I still don't know what my brain meant by this.

>monster-only run of Disgaea. I did it for Disgaea 1 at least.
I would at least do it with 4. Lots of good monster units, unique mechanics not in other games that help a lot (also they're fun), DESCO to back you up and Giant Monster units. You will need a unit who can lift for "puzzles" and certain maps with effects, but luckily you can get a Beastmaster to act as a thematically appropriate support while doing those things.

I've been meaning to do monster-only runs of the other games, but different games have been taking my attention.
Also honestly I think Disgaea 1 is just my favorite anyways. It's simplicity compared to the others makes it just a smoother experience imo.

>>2604892
I wish Disgaea would just let monsters lift and throw. I don't see any reason for them not being able to do so. It isnt like it would break game balance.
>>
>>2597429
>Is this game really GRIND FOR LIFE as people say?
Yes and no. People are very disingenuous when they talk about it. If you want all the fusion Digimon like Chaosmon, Ultimate Digimon like the Final Boss or major players like the Deadly Digimon/Royal Knights then you can (rightfully) expect to grind a whole bunch for them.
However if you're happy to just beat the game with something more average like Grankuwagamon or HiAndromon you don't really need to do much at all. Infact probably way less than most other Digimon games, considering you can just farm regular EXP while farming Species EXP anyway.

>>2604897
I don't think I'd describe D1 as smooth, but it's definitely enjoyable. Personally I wouldn't prioritize a Monster only run of Disgaea over an entirely new game either, since it doesn't really change the base gameplay that much.

I guess 'smooth' is the wrong word.
I moreso mean that Disgaea 1's simplicity compared to the other games just means there's less to really worry about. No contracts or squads or whatever. Just the base item world mechanics and that's pretty much it.
Guess I could say I feel overwhelmed and in turn less motivated to play the other Disgaeas because there's more min-maxing mechanics involved. And I'll take some the absence of some of the QoL the later games have for the simplicity of 1.
