Once you capture your very own Mino during battle you train them so they can grow as part of your party. In fact, the game features multiple stages and dozen types of battles for you to use to get your Mino monster trained to evolve near level 30.

While there certainly will not be 150 Minos to collect and some of the monsters you see in battle will be similar to the trio of Grublings, there is certainly room for additions in updates. With that being said, Mino Monsters recently updated to the latest version “2.0” after many players and reviews were saying they needed work. They made corrections to certain aspects of the game including the “evolution” portion which is now more like Pokémon as the Minos evolve and also the game is more action-focused. Furthermore, the creators got rid of the quest and world exploration portions of the game.
