Got mine on the first try. On the other hand though, I've killed a zillion Nagas, and I've yet to catch one. Wtf, universe?

It's kind of stupid that you can't influence your chances of catching a monster.

A lot of things in this game are kind of stupid.

0 in 35 kills.

I don't mind though, it is part of fun in a JRPG and am sure when I finally catch it the joy I feel will be directly proportional to how many I killed before I caught one.

Easy way I capture familiars is to switch all members to DO NOTHING when battle starts, pick Esther and make sure she has a good familiar. Then kill the two creatures you don't want. After that use Esther's attack with the harp. Do it enough and it should love you so you can catch it. Also the ugly duck island is a good area to level grind in. Especially early if you kill the tokos seeing as How they net you 2000 exp. I got mine on about the 10th try.

I hear you. I can't remember what my kill count for one is yet, but I still haven't caught one. I've all but given up because I'm sick and tired of trecking the island back and forth waiting for one to appear. I know they appear in fights outside of their field appearance, but to me, that's a waste of time.
So, I was like "Hi!" and he was like "Duuuude!"" and I was like, "EEEK!" so I ran away.

Trying to get a Toko (which I still haven't got) has taken all the difficulty out of the game. I started hunting Toko's when I was level 35 and now am level 60....
