A few of you may know that I have an interest in monster battling games that aren't Pokémon, but I rarely get deep into any. I haven't completed many such games yet.

A long time ago I found this list of illusory monsters in Game Boy monster battling games or games with a similar collecting element. It peeked my interest.

I dug up something again with pictures while I was looking if there was much documentation of Sanrio Timenet's RAM, a game I have actually completed which has wild encounters too often and a ridiculously hard final boss. I found some stuff, but not what I was looking for, though I digress.

This list of 'illusory monsters' may be the same list I found before, but I wasn't aware there were pictures.

Borun from GuruGuru Garacters (Atlus)
Planesta from Sanrio Timenet (Imagineer)
Planetta from Sanrio Timenet Stardust from Sanrio Timenet Time Surfer from Sanrio Timenet
Kurodanshaku from Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children: Shiro no Sho (Atlus)
Gilgamesh from Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children: Shiro no Sho
No. 181 from Space Net (Timenet, character development subsidiary of Imagineer) - is this a valid monster?

(no image) Gōrudomatokku from Seme COM Dungeon: Drururuaga (Namco)
Yamigitsune from Dungeon Savior (J-Wing)
(no image) ??? from DT Lord of Genomes
Kakurenbou from Dragon Quest Monsters 2 (Enix)Jikenryuu from Dragon Quest Monsters 2 Rāmia from Dragon Quest Monsters 2
Ninja from Pocket Family (Hudson)
Mew from Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal (Game Freak)
Celebi from Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal (Game Freak)
(no image) Kamisara from Robopon (Hudson/Red)
(no image) Dorobot from Robopon
(no image) Platinum from Robopon
(no image) Yukitan from Robopon

I may find the missing Robopon. Someone compiled the sprites so it's just a matter of assigning them to the right names. Does anyone know the English names of the illusory Dragon Quest Monsters 2 and Robopon monsters?

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪

Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.


I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

Faith (which doesn't have to be religious) and a positive attitude/optimism is half the battle for well-being.

Fun times come and go, we may argue what is the point if nothing in this world is permanent; and all energy is believed to be subject to transformation. I guess in the temporary absence of it though, we value those times more and even though some things seem to be lost, they return in other forms.

Sorry for the Necro but I have information regarding DQM2 for you Torchickens:

Yeah, I've obtained the Dragon quest monsters 2 monsters so I can tell you their localized names: Dimensaur, Lamia, and Kagebou. All three are in the boss Family but don't have Library entries.  Of an interesting note, all three of these event monsters have their levels capped at 9 and cannot breed when legit. This is because of how powerful they are. However, using a code that lets you obtain them in the wild will let you bypass both of these limits.

On an unrelated note, there is also a placeholder monster in DQM2. Its name is blank and it uses a Drak slime sprite. its data is located between each family.  I haven't actually attempted to obtain one before so that's all I know. Not sure if they have different properties or not.   

Bleah! *Splash and Splatter*
