Different Color Appearance Of Each Beast

Each Beasts Has A Unique Color

Each of the Beast, with the exception of Phoenix, has a unique "color-matched" individual that is distinct from the rest of the other species. While it is normal that there are differences in coat color between the same beast species, Shiny Beasts with the star or + Marking have special distinctions than their normal counter parts, which you can catch as well to add to your collection.

▲The different colored individuals of Kneazle are about one size larger than the normal species. It is interesting to note that each species has its own unique characteristics.

Breeding Between Different Colors Also Makes The Offspring Have Different Colors

All offsprings with distinctive colors are born by breeding pairs of Beast with different colors. It is currently unknown how to obtain offsprings with unique colors other than this method, so make sure to breed rare beasts if you want offspring with special colors.

There Are No Special Difference Between Normal And Shiny Beast

Even though it is a rare individual, the selling price is the same as usual, and the number of materials available is the same as well. Other than being able to see offspring with different colors, there is no difference other than it being rare.
