just curious what everyone's line up is at various stages of the game.
I personally am trying to balance everything out.
currently got the ship and I have
mighty mite, little big horn, and purrloiner.
drongo, bone head, grandson.
hurly, dumbelemur, green buncher

swaine is constantly getting killed, and I feel like grandson, purrloiner, and dumbelemur are never out on the field. my drops are limited for evolving right now. so really just curious what everyone has, sure I know what to get at the end of the game, but what about now, and when I get past the tombstone trails, etc.

yes... that's what you have at end game. I'm asking what people have at the point they get swaine.

Not saying this is the best lineup, but it's what I have at this exact moment.

Oliver: Mighty Mite, Little Big Horn, Seed Sprite
Esther: Drongo, Griffy, Napcap
Swaine: Tumbelemur, Bonehead, Monolith

(I'm thinking of putting an Oroboros in Oliver's group and maybe going back for a Naja. I know it's slightly mad to grind up a new familiar when the Mite is right there, but I want to get started early.)

To help Swaine, give him a monolith. It's a nice tank and it eventually gets a rez spell. It's got a nice magic attack stat also.
LOL@console fanboys. Just because it's the only console YOU own doesn't mean the others suck. Great games on all systems. Get over yourself, shut up and play.

When I got Swaine, I was using these:

(Some might have been morphed. I can't remember.)
Oliver: Little Bighorn, Naja, Purrloiner
Esther: Drongo, Bubbudd, Danglerfish
Swaine: Thumbelemur, Bonehead, Monolith

The key here is to ditch the Hurly asap (he's crap) and get Swaine a Monolith. Really good tank, and being able to cast a rez spell later on is a plus.

that's great keep them coming guys.
I looked at the guide the other day and that person just kept the same ones on Oliver (mite, tumbelemur, sid) for the whole game. I guess it doesn't matter too much as long as you have enough Phoenix feathers.

Not including Tier2, little bit of grinding but 0 toko grind involved. IIRC:

oliver - M.Mite, Naja(lvling), Monolith (lvling)
esther - Purrloiner, Liltle bighorn, Drongo
swaine - Monkey, Bonehead (lvling), Whambat (lvling)

I didnt want monolith on swaine since he'd keep switching to it. I wanted him to dps. Gaved him monolith back when needed. I replaced monkey and m.mite (both were main dps) soon after for better&future familiars to start leveling up:

oliver - Purrloiner, Naja, Monolith
esther - Little bighorn, Lumberwood (instant healtank!), drongo
swaine - Bonehead, Whambat, Hooray (lvling for esther)

Then I got rid of L.bighorn, gaved esther whambat, got girlfiend for swaine etc.. etc.. Stopping here. Familiar cycling management OCD ><

Are Najas really good?

I can't it get to the same atk level as Mite and Lemur that are given out by the game automatically or Babana guy I now use as tank. It gains levels slower and has extremely low defence - as soon as I switch, I lose half of my HP almost instantly.

Does it only shine in later evolutions or something?

When I get home from work I will look and see what I had. I have like 40 saves for the game at various points so I am sure I have one for that point in the game.
Looking at the big picture is easier on the eyes...
