How to battle

Beastie battles are the primary way for you to earn coins and to collect and level up your beasties!

To start a beastie battle, find one of the players in the School or Town who has a beastie beside them. These players are always ready for action!

If you are up for the challenge, select 'YES' to start the battle and let the fun begin!

Once you have decided to enter into a battle, you will see 3 options for you to choose from over to the right of your screen.

  • Battle - Select this option to start battling with your selected beastie.

  • Tag Out - Select this option to choose a different beastie in your squad to battle. Choosing a beastie with more energy and higher levels may help you win the upcoming battle! Beasties in your Squad must have energy in order to tag out.

  • Run Away - Click on this button to end your current battle. Running away will cause you to lose your progress in the battle and you will not earn any coins for the battle.

After selecting the Battle option, pick the first move you want your beastie to make. All of your beastie's available moves will be displayed to the right. You can select between attack and defense moves.


  • Click on the question mark under the battle moves to get a full breakdown of each battle icon.

  • Moves with a green upward arrow next to them are the moves that will do the most damage to enemy beasties when battling!

After selecting a move, you will need to put your knowledge to the test and answer battle questions correctly.

If you get a question correct, the move you selected will be applied to your enemy beastie. You can see how much damage was done to the enemy beastie after any move by reviewing their energy bar, located below their power Level.

No damage will be done to the enemy beastie if you get a question incorrect.

Defeated beasties will be drained of all their energy.

If your opponent has more than one beastie, you will continue battling additional enemy beasties until you win the entire battle, or until all of your beasties are drained of energy.

At the end of each battle, a battle summary page will then appear, showing you stats for each of the beasties who participated in your battle.

Remember: You can choose to Run Away from a battle at any time. However, coins and beasties will not be earned for any battles that you run away from.

You will be rewarded with coins after each battle you win!

You may even Level Up!

Sometimes, your opponents will be so impressed by your skills that they will want to give you a beastie egg as a gift!


  • Each beastie and move has a special Essence, and some Essences are stronger than others! Make sure you use moves that will produce the most damage for the enemy beastie based on Essence.

  • Remember to visit one of the doctors in the School or Town after each battle so they can reenergize your Squad!

  • The farther out you explore, the more difficult the battlers will become! You’ll need to train and level up your Beasties to beat opponents.
