In Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (hence forth DQMJ2), you have 7 different
weapon types to choose from: Sword, Spear, Axe, Hammer, Whip, Claw and Staff.
Also, there are various items including recovery, buff and other functions.

The only place to purchase items in at the vending machine located on the
airship.  When the vending machine becomes available to you, you will not be
able to purchase all of the items right away.  Instead, you will need to "feed"
an item called "Machine Parts" to the small box next to the vending machine.
When you reach the required amount of Machine Parts, the vending machine will
"level up" and will have new inventory available for purchase.  Machine Parts
can be found in chests or as monster drops from most mechanical monsters.

Below are tables that list all of the weapons in each weapon type.  Included
is the following information:

   Name: This is the name of the weapon
    Dmg: This is the damage rating of the weapon.  Your monster's attack power
         will be increased by this amount when the weapon is equipped.
    Buy: The cost of the weapon to buy from the vending machine.  If the price
         is listed as N/A, that means it will never be available for purchase
         and must be acquired as a reward or monster drop.
   Sell: This is how much you will receive for selling the weapon.  If the
         value is listed as N/A, that means you cannot sell it.  DQMJ2's
         vending machine has terrible rates at which you can sell items,
         around 10% of the full value.  Sell with caution.
Special: This lists any special properties the weapon might have.  If there is
         an N/A, it means that the weapon has no special property.  Below is a
         list of all properties that may appear on a weapon:

              Slimes+ / Slimes++ / Slimes+++ > Slimes
              Nature+ / Nature++ / Nature+++ > Naturalists
              Beasts+ / Beasts++ / Beasts+++ > Beasts
              Dragon+ / Dragon++ / Dragon+++ > Dragons
              Materl+ / Materl++ / Materl+++ > Materialists
              Undead+ / Undead++ / Undead+++ > Undead
              Demons+ / Demons++ / Demons+++ > Demons
         
         A weapon with any of the above properties indicates that it is more
         effective in damaging those type of monsters.  The number of "+" that
         is included indicates the strength of that property as shown below:

              Slimes+   = Rather effective against slimes.
              Slimes++  = Effective against slimes.
              Slimes+++ = Highly effective against slimes.

         Other properties that may appear include:

              Metal+ = Highly likely to land a hit against metal monsters.
              Regen  = Restores some of the wielder's HP when attacking.
              Crit+  = Makes critical hits easier to land.
              DmgAll = Deals damage to all enemies.
              Crush  = Occasionally crushes foes in a single blow.

         Some properties increase stats of the monster.  They are shown as:

              DEF+# = Increases defence by the # shown.
              AGI+# = Increases agility by the # shown.
              WIS+# = Increases wisdom by the # shown.

         The last three properties only take effective when synthesising
         monsters.  Equip the weapon on the parents to activate the effect.

              Synth: Keep Form = Parent retains its form to the child.
              Synth: Positive  = Child will be Positive.
              Synth: Negative  = Child will be Negative.
