Product Details:

This is a preowned video game. It is guaranteed to work on your Game Boy Advance video game console and may not include a box or instruction manual. Monster Rancher Advance 2 is a sequel to the popular role-playing game with monster breeding and battling elements. It offers more innovative ideas and added depth than the original, while still fitting in a compact, portable Game Pak that's perfect for gaming on the go.

Monster Rancher Advance 2 lets players create, train, and fight with monsters of their own choosing. Monsters are generated by inputting key phrases to create different monsters. Each phrase entered will create a unique monster, which will always appear when that specific phrase is entered. Players can experiment with many different phrases for unexpected results. Two separate monsters can also be combined with special items to form an entirely new monster. Certain combinations will lead to hidden, rare monsters which can not be obtained through the normal monster generation process.

The Coaching System from Monster Rancher Advance has been dramatically improved for added depth in the sequel. Depending on the monster type, certain coaches will offer unique training sessions which other monster coaches will not be able to provide. These special training sessions can be very difficult and dangerous, yet have potential to yield major results. A monster's charisma and skills will also be crucial factors in deciding whether it is suitable to be a good coach or not. Coaches will now recognize and alert you to certain warnings which your breeding assistant may not notice.

One of the most interesting new features in the game is the introduction of monster meetings. Using the Game Boy Advance Game LinkĀ® Cable, players can introduce their monsters to their friends' monsters. When this happens, monsters may take a liking to each other and form friendships. The meeting may change your monster dramatically for the better or the worst. For example, a hard-working monster's strong work ethic may be inspirational to a monster which was formerly lazy, but now changes and works harder. At the same time, a "bad-boy" monster may corrupt a formerly good monster with bad habits and a sour disposition. Meetings will result in rare monsters and special abilities, which are not available through standard play.
