Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX are very old games, so like many games from the first PlayStation era, they can be a little obscure, providing no guidance on how to play the game or how to unlock additional content.
Monster Rancher 1 DX is possibly the worst of the two games in this regard, as it features tons of content, like additional monster breeds, that has to be unlocked by fulfilling certain conditions but it does provide any hint whatsoever on how to do so.
Here’s how to unlock all of the monster breeds in the reborn classic.
How to Unlock all Breeds in Monster Rancher 1 DX
