    This thread is to talk about the awesome game known as 'Monster Rancher 2', which was a monster-breeder game involving players raising monsters to put them in fights, combine them when they're about to die, rinse and repeat. It is amazingly fun, and one of the most innovative features it has is using actual discs (and, by extension, disc images) in order to get different monsters.

    There is a group located here, where we are dedicated to hosting tournaments between players who want to play Monster Rancher 2 on epsxe (a playstation 1 Emulator which enables us to transfer memory card files electronically).

    Anyway, commence discussion!

    Apes are great, although their INT stat grows soooo slowly D:
    Color Pandora's are under-rated too, it would appear

    A little view in the Antlan :D

    [Wikja] Antlan resembles an ant and Kuwagata (Stag Beetle) and uses ninja like skills and attacks. They also have the ability to make certain parts of their bodies (mainly their antlers and their tails) grow in size. It appears in Monster Rancher Advance, Monster Rancher Advance 2, and Monster Rancher 4. They are mainly known in the game for doing right and living to ensure justice. They even have a group of rare Antlan that formed the "Antlan Rangers" in Monster Rancher 4. If you enter Monster Rancher 4 in the Monster Rancher 4 game, you get a either a Blue Antlan, Red Antlan, or a Yellow Antlan and you are told it's a Pandora Disc.

    [Me] They look like Digimons rip-offs or something, and I don't like the new monsters already poping in the newer versions of the game[even though its just PS2 :D].

    that's why MR2 in PS1 is better :)

    I too tried making a MR2 game in Warcraft 3, but although I had everything planned out and such, I got bored of the idea.

    However, I did have another idea based off that system, only done much differently in that you had several monsters at once and you'd fight with them all at once against other parties of monsters. Different monsters would operate better at different ranges, and positioning would be 90% of the battles.

    Nono...
    I was meant combining the concept of mr in wc3 role
    And the alpha tester say it's a good game, although not many monster implemented yet...
    So far i have about 5 monster involved, such as magmathid, glacithid, and the other, my main idea is create a rpg based game, but mainly, we fight with our pet, not by our self, and the heroes mainly weak if alone..
    And have you played mr 5 evo in ps 2?

    No. I never made this thread about all Monster Ranchers, I made it about Monster Rancher 2. Hence my confusion.

    The hell is Magmathid and Glacithid? Never heard of them o.0

    Was the gameplay anything like MR2?
    If not, what was it like? And how was it different?

    Isn't EVO the online one, btw?

    nope, EVO's gameplay is that you're a circus member, training monsters for the shows... basically, the show increases your monster's stats based on its performance... there's also adventures where you go inside caves, etc... and you train/battle with three monsters at the same time...

    and what I like about it is that, you can combine a single monster multiple times... since a monster that is "freezed" (MR2 -wise) is saved into the "book", and also the stats of the new monster, depends actually on the stats of the monsters used on combination...

    The combination feature sounds reasonable, but are there fights? There has to be fights D:
    And how do you learn new moves?

    moves are learned via points that your monster obtains through fights... fights are normally encountered on adventures... ^_^

    another I don't like is that the main story is pretty short... though you can still play afterwards and gains access to a new place filled with powerful monsters to fight with...
