You’re a low level looking for a Griffin that respects you? You’ve been like me and looked for them for days straight and killed many generations of Griffins without finding one? Here’s an easy way for you to encounter one with the same surname as you (for Mobile SP only)! WARNING: Not for the people who are easily bored and distracted.
If you’ve played Pokemon for a while you’ll know this term:
GUIDE TO SOFT RESET HUNT GRIFFINS!
What you need: 2 free save data slots, a bed/sleeping bag, a griffin trap (same as argy or rex trap), a decent flyer with decent health like an argy or a high level pte, soothing balms (optional if you want a high level tame) a lot of prime meat or allo kibbles (like a LOT a lot) and a loooot of narcotics or biotoxins, (a level 100 needs like 200-300 biotoxins even when you use a 10x soothing balm) and a bit of patience (you probably have this already if you’re hunting griffins anyways)
Step 1: Go to Far’s Peak where the griffins spawn, go up the mountain top and save. Leave to the menu, go to your save data and save to a free slot then return to your world
Step 2: Fly down the mountain slowly and find a griffin spawn point (you will know since mobile spawns literally drops them out of the sky and they kick up dust if they spawn on the ground), take note of this spot then leave the game, restore your last save data and return back in.
Step 3: Go down to NEAR the griffin spawn point, just out of render distance so they don’t spawn in just yet, save and leave, override your last data with this new one and return back in game
Step 4: Fly closer so the Griffin spawns in and you can check with spyglass to see if it respects you. If not then leave the game, restore the last save data, repeat until you see one with the same surname or just say “Respects you” when you check the info. Save the game and leave, save this to your remaining free save slots just in case.
Step 5: Lure the Griffin into the trap and leave it, don’t knock it out yet. Put a bed or sleeping bag near the trap and wait for night time. Sleep when it’s night, this will reduce the Griffin’s food to 0, making it easy for us to starve tame it. Also make sure no other dinos get near the trap and the area is safe because it can eat the smaller dinos and we can’t starve it.
Step 6: REMEMBER TO SAVE AND OVERRIDE YOUR LAST SAVE DATA FIRST! Knock it out, check if it’s food is at 0 or down near 0, if not then repeat Step 5 (optional but this will make sure you don’t have to wait a full 5 ingame days or so to tame it), put the soothing balm in and feed it then put in all the food you’ve prepared.
Step 7: Enjoy your new Griffin!… Now repeat all the steps above for another one in the opposite gender so you can breed it for Griffin eggs, making griffin kibbles so you can easily tame high leveled ones late game.
Before this I tried to kill griffins for 4-5 hours without one spawning, but doing all the steps above AND taming TWO griffins took less time than me hunting for one the normal way, Soft Resetting itself took less than an hour for me to find 2 with the same surname, I fed one with prime meat and one with kibble, prime meat absolutely decimated the taming effectiveness, putting it to nearly 0% but that one was a female for eggs so less important.
A man about eighteen walked through the area where the performs practiced at the circus. He had short blonde hair, hazel eyes, and pale skin. His name was Jaron and he was on a mission. His master Tom constantly sent Jaron on missions because of Jaron’s…..gifts. His sister Hailey thought that Tom was their father. Jaron wasn’t sure. Just like his sister his mind was rather…loopy. He had been sent to find one of their targets who was disguised as a performer in the circus. A head poked out of Jaron’s jacket. It was Jaron’s pegomastax, Peggie. “Peggie get back in there! And don’t steal anything!” Jaron scolded. Peggie frowned. “I can’t help it!” Peggie whined. Jaron pushed her head back in. A muffled grunt came from inside. One of the stage managers walked up to Jaron. “Who are you? Are you a clown?” The man asked. Jaron gave him a ludicrous grin. “No I’m not a clown, I’m more like…a joker.” That’s what my friends call me. If I had any.” Jaron said. The man scowled. “Whatever. Go join the other clowns.” Jaron gave him a mock bow then bounded off to where the clowns where. He scanned the performers until one caught his eye. A woman with shaggy brown hair and a exhausted face was sitting in a corner. “That’s her.” Peggie said, sticking her head out of Jaron’s jacket. Jaron scowled. “Peggie!” Jaron exclaimed exasperated. “Sorry.” Peggie disappeared back into his jacket.
Jaron headed to a seat in the back of the crowd as they watched the performances that came on stage. Finally the act with the target came. She began juggling balls. Jaron raised his hand and with his finger drew a invisible straight line in midair. Suddenly the target on stage paused and the balls she was juggling fell to the floor. Then she fell to the floor, a straight red gash across her neck. She was dead. “Mission complete.” Jaron whispered. The crowd began to panic and Jaron and Peggie slipped out unnoticed.
Tom blinked and the memory was gone. He was still sitting on the throne inside the castle that had once been the shadow phoenix castle. A man walked up to him and gave Tom a short bow. The man had light brown hair and light blue eyes. He was wearing metal armor and on his arm there was a large scar in the shape of a wolf face“Sir, Marvelo is bringing your daughter to you.” The man said. Tom nodded. “Good. Leave me Morbax.” ” Tom waved his hand as if dismissing the other man.
Hailey and Brutus followed “Marv” down the dark hallway to the throne room. She loved spending time with her father. She wasn’t exactly sure if he was her actual father but he looked vaguely familiar. In fact she wasn’t even sure if Jaron was her brother. Whenever Hailey was alone her mind tended to go around in circles. Sometimes she wasn’t even sure what her name was or who she was. The doctors said that it was probably from a childhood trauma or something. Hailey didn’t know because she didn’t remember her childhood. Hailey for the fifteenth thousandth time tried in vain to scratch at her wrist but stopped. On her wrist was a implant implanted into her wrist. Her father said that when she was a child something had happened to her and she almost died and so he used a implant to keep her alive. Hailey knew her father loved her though he was very stiff and far away. Finally they came to the gates that led to the throne room. Marv entered first. Brutus did not enter the throne room. “Sir, your….daughter has come to see you.” Marvelo said. “Good. You may leave. All of you.” Tom said. Everyone left except for him and Hailey. Tom rose to his feet and studied Hailey for a second then Hailey ran over to him and hugged him. Tom stood there shocked for a second. He patted her awkwardly on the back. She let go of him. “You’ve grown up.” Tom said. Hailey giggled. “But I just saw you a few months ago!” Hailey said. Tom nodded. “Yes, I wish we could see each other more often but…I have your first mission.” Tom said. “Really?” Hailey said excited. “Yes, and Brutus will go with you. Marvelo will take you to meet the team your going with.”
