How do I catch monsters?

Do I need to reach a certain point in the game before I can catch monsters and train them?

When you attack monster you have a certain percentage chance on retrieving the monster depending on monster type. You can see if the monster can be tamed by using the Libra scope (or R1 PS3). If it states untameable then you can't get that monster. If it states tamed, then you already have it and it can't be retrieved again (unless you release it from your monster collection, or use the monster for infusion from another monster). If it states tameable then you can retrieve the monster. Keep killing it and you will succeed after a while.

To improve you chances of retrieving monster there are two ways:
1. Fragment Skills: There are a fragment skill that increases the chance to retrieve monster.
2. Kill an enemy with feral skill. This will increase the chase by the percentage you manage to get with the feral skill.

Most if not all the monsters drop crystals, Some have low drop rates (2%) Some unique monsters are 100%. Better chance to get them when you use feral link to kill them.

And also *Spoiler*

Using the fragment skill, Monster Collector, you have like a 30% better chance if i'm not mistaken.

To answer the actual question, you will be able to catch monsters in the game at a certain point in the game. You will be taken through a tutorial and you will get your first two monsters as well.

Thlis takes place in the second place that you visit if I'm not mistaken.

Weaken them, then throw a pokeball at their face.

Yes you need to get to a certain point in the game and some monsters are easier than others so if you don't get it the first time keep trying until you do.
