Video Game Strategies/Monster Rancher 4


Hi! I saw some of your other answers to someone about training their monsters, because they couldn't get their monsters to an S rank. I have a similar problem. I usually work with Tiger monsters, but I decided to take up training a Mocchi and a Lilim (Pixie with Joker sub breed) to minimal success so far. Can you help at all?

Also, sorry if this is a bit of an annoying question, you don't have to answer if you think you don't have to.

Greetings! I don't find it annoying at all. :)As a massive fan of Monster Rancher, it always makes my day to be able to answer questions about it.

I unfortunately will need a little more information, however: how do you train your tigers, and what do you mean with 'minimal success'? The main reason I ask is to be able to get an idea of what the main issue is, and what can be *changed* here! Also, what do you have to work with, 'machines'-wise?

Hopefully you'll be able to fill that in and I can see what I can do!

I can answer strategy questions for just about any video games. RPGs and collecting/raising sims are my major specialty, though I am also experienced in general strategy games, a variety of MMORPGs, and possibly even some much more esoteric ones. I can't promise that I'll be able to answer all your questions from personal experience, but I can promise that if I can't, I will do my utmost to research the answer before I give it to you.

Best consoles to ask about: NES, SNES, GB/GBC, GBA, Playstation, Playstation II. If you are asking outside of this list, please give a little extra time for some research to be done on the game. I have not played much above these, so if you ask about PSIII, new gen PC games, or the like, expect that it may take some time for me to research your answer.

Please note: if you are wanting a particular version of strategy (i.e. a *fast* playthrough, a powerful playthrough, a challenge game, a specific boss beat in a specific way), make sure the details are added. The more I know about what *you* want to know, the better.


I am an avid player of retro video games of various types, including RPGs, strategy games, MMORPGs, et cetera. I have been playing since the Atari 2600 days, and even back then, learning the strategy and the like of the games was as interesting as beating it.
