Rare monster hunt---Don Tonberry?

#1cassandra365Posted 6/16/2008 10:09:32 AM

I'd like to unlock Ultima Buster if not Nemesis in the Monster Arena.

Got at least 5 of all except Don Tonberry in the Sunken Cave.

Any tips to lure them out, or special spots they lurk?

People say the greenroom has more Tonberry encounters, but I think it's all bull. It's all based on luck.

Don Tonberry is a monster arena creation.

The creature in the sunken cave is just called "Tonberry" and no real tips, it is the rarest appearing random counter in the game and hated by many. You just have to keep trying.

I'm assuming s/he meant Tonberry in the Sunken Cave...

Search for Sunken Cave on this board.

You should find a topic called "Sunken Cave Encounters Test" or something similar.

Last page will show a map of where the Tonberrys apparently appear. The map is posted by pbirdman.

Thanks for that search link. The answers weren't what I was hoping for, but it seems like some people really took the time to test hypotheses. Guess there's no perfect answer.

I'd been spending so much time on levelling and customizing I didn't realize that I might not ever be able to fight the uber-bosses without some serious patience in capturing.

Well, the tests (although not very extensive) do show that the green room and the back room do spawn Tonberry at a higher rate than the other rooms. Either way, it's worth a try. I've always gone to the green room in all my playthroughs. Works for me.

Just try to make the best of it. Don't think of non-tonberry encounters as a bad thing, I always Mug while capturing, and you can get your hands on some decent items. If you encounter any overstock fiends, have Yojimbo kill them off to help raise his compatibility. Magic Pot encounters are a pain, but I always take the opportunity to see how many Bingos I can get.

Either way, if anything, stay near the back of the cave, save and reload your game every dozen or so fights if you don't see any toberries.

Well, I taught everyone Loner Overdrive mode while trying to capture Tonberry. XD
