    Hey ho, I recently finished Digimon World Dusk and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 and was thinking if there are any other monster-raising games for NDS (GB, GBC, GBA, NES, SNES, N64 and PS1 would be ok, too - can't play/emulate any higher, like GC, PS2 or Xbox), like Pokemon, Digimon or Dragon Quest Monsters.

    So far I (remember having) played:
    - any Pokemon title (well, each generation)
    - Digimon World 1, 2 (wow, that really sucks), 3, DS, DS Dusk, DS Championship (feels too much like Tamagotchi)
    - Dragon Quest Monsters 1, 2, Joker, Joker 2, Caravan Heart
    - Monster Racers
    - Monster Tale (that one with Chomp)
    - Monster Rancher Advance, Advance 2, DS
    ~ Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor, Strange Journey (you kinda raise monsters there, too right)
    - Jade Cocoon
    - Spectrobes
    - Persona 1, 2
    - Lufia 2
    - FFTA
    - Battle of
    - Fossil Fighters
    - How to "train" your dragon

    So, yeah. I can't think of other games like that, so help me? [​IMG]

    Robopon 1 & 2?


    you're probably better off with 2, though as 1 might require its gimmick (an IR cartridge that read nearly everything to get statboosters)

    It's more about farming, but you can keep some monsters to help you with farming, battling, or for produce.

    And if I'm not mistaken dragon quest hand of the heavenly bride (I think that was VII) has monster raising past a certain point early on in the game.

    Look for the "Zombie japanese Game" (I forgot the name, sorry [​IMG])
    It doesn't have an American/European release but You can find an English translation patch somewhere here.
    I think it's called "Zombie Dayuki" or something like that [​IMG]
    It's called Zombie Daisuki.

    Monsters in the game will also gain levels, an equip items, but you cannot give them direct commands. Other than that, they level up like normal party member and they can learn new abilities. Do note that they can't always be used. Oh and I was mistaken with when you can do it. It is after a while in the story that you can raise monsters, but you do have a monster with you for a little while somewhere in the beginning, but it leaves you later on.

    Heh, if there was some translation patch for Digimon - Lost Evolution (non-story stuff would be enough), I'd love to play that (same with the Xros ones).. Ah well, maybe I'll try them anyway..

    If I remember correctly, Chrono Trigger DS has a monster-raising side-quest.

    This is kind of pointless, since the topic opener asked for NDS games.

    I will suggest Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for GBA.
    We all know it is a good game.
    If you played the game more further, you can raised a monster in a farm and use that monster to battle with you.

    Actually, while the TC is mainly looking for DS games, he'll accept anything up to PSX or N64. However, I'm not exactly sure Persona counts; there's a bit less of the monster-raising than the main SMT series or Devil Survivor.

    DS has Battle Of Giants: Dinosaurs and Battle Of Giants: Dragons, Fossil Fighters, the How to Train Your Dragon game, and a couple of others that haven't been mentioned. The two Spore games might count, too. The Shin Megami Tensei games (Devil Survivor and Strange Journey) definitely count, seeing as their premise is building a team of demons to Save The WorldTM, but they are typically considered quite difficult. I'd start with Devil Survivor, if you're new to SMT, because it's the easier of the two.

    SNES has Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals, which had a surprisingly robust monster-customization system, considering its age, and the fact that monster-battling wasn't the premise of the game. However, the monsters themselves are somewhat sparse (I've only got one), intended to pinch-hit for the main characters, not replace them. Robotrek is all about building the perfect team of robots.

    Jade Cocoon and Dragon Seeds for the PSX. It's been forever since I played them, but they were both primarily about raising monsters.
