Nexomon: Extinction is an RPG game by Vewo Interactive Inc. and a sequel to the popular game Nexomon. The game was formerly available on every platform except mobile devices, however, it is now available worldwide on the Google Play Store and App Store. If you're a Pokemon fan, you'd be very familiar with this game.
But the difference is that it also has fun elements of breaking the 4th wall and self-awareness in this game. It brings the fun of a classic console-based RPG game to mobile devices. If you're planning to download the game and play it, this is the perfect beginner's guide for you!
The story events of Nexomon: Extinction takes place years after the story of the original Nexomon. Unlike the original game, there are many more starters and new Nexomon's added to the game. It takes onto the old style of the Pokemon games, the ones on GBA, and carries them out on mobile, bringing a wave of nostalgia along your way. The game begins with a backstory where a war is going on between the Nexomons and humanity.
This fight ends and introduces "Tamers," people who capture and battle alongside the Nexomon, just like Pokemon trainers. Even though this conclusion has bought peace, people still wonder how long the peace will last. The main character of this game is an orphan and you get to choose your character's skin in the character selection part and thus begin your journey of becoming a tamer.
As the story unfolds, you'll be faced with a dragon and you will be given a choice to choose a Nexomon from a mysterious character. There are a total of 9 possible starters to pick from, each of which belongs to one of the game's different types. It does not display the stats of the Nexomon while choosing, only the picture and its type, so referring to this guide would make your life simpler. Here's the list of all the starters:
Like you could see above, there are nine different types available in the game- Normal, Fire, Water, Plant, Mineral, Wind, Electric, Psychic, and Ghost Type. Just like Pokemon, every type has its strength and weakness against each other. To make it easier for you to battle here's all of their effectiveness:
This is also another feature similar to Pokemon, but with a few extra features added to it. When it comes to battling, you can either battle against other Tamers that would be standing NPCs waiting for you to cross their sight and approach you for a battle. The battle style is similar to that of Pokemon, we have a limit of 6 Nexomons that we can use in our party. Each of them has 4 moves, and unlike Pokemon, we don't have PP or Power Points but a stamina system.
Once the stamina ends, you can't use any of your moves and it drains depending on how strong your move is, so use it wisely. You can spend one move to replenish your stamina by pressing the "Zz" icon on the top left corner. It is to be noted that stamina doesn't replenish outside of battles so you need to carry items such as ether for a quick fix.
When it comes to catching a wild nexomon, you need to walk into the wild grass which is shaking. Once you do, the battle starts. You need to lower the opponent Nexomon's HP or Health Points to catch. But that's not the only factor that will lead to a successful capture. You also need to feed the Nexomon to increase your chances of capturing it. Every Nexomon, just like the starter Nexomons, has a favorite food that can significantly help you.
Nexotraps is this game's version of Pokeball which lets you help catch the Nexomon. The difference is that it shows you all of the stats about your chances of catching the Nexomon, including what it's been fed and how much HP it has. There is also a possibility of you encountering a shiny or Cosmic Nexomon and the rates for them are as follows:
Early Game- 1/4000
Mid Game- 1/3500
Late Game- 1/3000
Now we cannot list every single item that is present in the game since there are way too many. But there are categories of each item and we will list down what they are:
This is a very engaging game and brings the beauty of old-style RPG games to smartphones, with better and beautiful graphics. The lore is very deep in this game and you can dive deep into the world of Nexomon. Happy Gaming!
