  1. The game calculates a score for each team based on their level, stats, traits, and skills. Is that what you are referring to? Or do you mean the points you earn during battle that decide the winner after 10 turns? For the former I found a formula for DQM2 on a Japanese site a while ago, but it's probably outdated for joker 3. It did not take rank into consideration however.
  2. You have to warn him before Warubou gives you the desert key, so it's unavoidable. He starts selling items after you beat limbo. He doesn't sell anything too special iirc but his prices are low.
  3. I've never had that problem. Are you playing on an emulator? It might be a glitch.
  4. Monster families have been swapped around a bit throughout the series. I think they wanted to add a "legendary" monster to the slime family just like they did to all other families, and Trode fit the best. Trode moved to the nature family in joker 2, and to the boss family in later games.
  5. Joker 2 is the odd one out with stat caps based on ranks (along with joker 1 jp) so that doesn't surprise me. There is plenty of variation in the 3DS games. Sure, some monsters are more popular than others, but it doesn't come even remotely close to what you see in pokemon. Pokemon VGC 2015 looked like this: And that's doubles. Mega kangaskhan is even more OP in singles. So what did gamefreak do when they released OR/AS? Oh right, they gave her EVEN STRONGER MOVES. I'm not making this up. Gamefreak deserves a prize for this. But to get back at dragon quest monsters, I think it wo
  6. I'm having really low expectations for Sun/Moon, now. Gamefreak is seriously incompetent and as long as people keep buying their rehashes they will never change. I don't know why people keep buying them either because I always hear the same complaints every game. "It's just like every other pokemon game! Get 8 badges, beat the evil team, then conquer the elite 4! There are not enough new pokemon/the new pokemon are ugly/the new pokemon suck in battle! Why did they take out feature X!?" Yet they have no problems buying the next pokemon game on day 1. Are people that dense? It's a pity Joker 3
  7. There is nothing hardcore about DQMJ2 pro. It's the equivalent of pokemon's "third version" if it had more pokemon, more moves, and better balance. They were either lazy or wanted to cash in twice by releasing the pro version after joker 2's success.
  8. Keep in mind that some traits also affect monster stats. The AI ones are the most common, but there are a couple more. The non-HP stats boost are minor, going from mega to ultragiga is 1.15/1.05 ~= 9.5% increase. The biggest advantage to sizing a monster up is a damage boost equal to % HP lost (megabody only), and a team wide attack and a 30/40% damage bonus for non-slash skills for giga and ultragigabody. Use the extra skill slots to buff up a monster's stats instead.
  9. The scouting system has ups and downs. The biggest advantage is being able to choose which monster joins you instead of it being the last one you defeat. I agree that focused too much on physical attackers/psych up/oomph/sap users and made everything else too. The 3DS games bring meat back which gives you very decent % of scouting regardless of your team. I think a combination of both is the best. Also, monsters sometimes join you randomly in the remake of DQM2. Skill trees I'm not a big fan of because of how many "useless" trees there are. IMO all skill trees should be competitively viabl
  10. It seems to be about 200 base monsters and then 300 palette swaps. Now that's a lazy way to raise your monster count.
  11. You guys work fast. Wouldn't it be cool if the 3DS supported custom translation scripts for games? Without any hacking, I mean.
  12. Updated the list with the monsters from the script. Thanks, Z6n4! I was doing a translation effort too, but there's a lot to do.
  13. I have a really hard time believing that, which is why I want to be proven wrong. I could copy only 486 monsters from the wiki, which means that it is incomplete. Also, some of the monsters on the list are still there like king squid which is now under a slightly different name. Mortamor is definitely in as well except his head and hands are no longer separate. I can't imagine estark being taken out either. Either way, I didn't mean to be a buzzkill or start a panic. It could also be that some of the bosses are given out as wi-fi rewards just like the previous 3DS games, so if a monster is
  14. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: NOT ALL MONSTERS ON THE LIST ARE EXCLUDED. Some monsters have had their name changed during their transition from DQM2 to DQMJ3 like King Squid. I did a vertical lookup in excel to filter out the monsters that are present in DQM2 but are not found in the monster name table in the game data. It resulted in a list of nearly 600 monsters. In the spoiler tags below are the monsters I could not locate, with the google translation of their name next to it: Below is a list of monsters that are found in both DQM2 and the DQMJ3 data.
