We were charmed by TRAGsoft’s take on the monster-collecting genre, Coromon, when it launched this summer (after a short notice delay). For a look back at the old-school Pokémon-style, we found it was a lot of fun and gave it a healthy 7/10 in our review. Now, we’ve got a reason to go back, as the developer announced that a brand new update has dropped for the game.

It’s a beefy update too, and the first one for Switch, with the two major headlines being Trait Enhancement and the reduction of RNG. Trait Enhancements allow you to cancel your Coromon’s evolution or even devolve it to benefit from improved versions of their trait.

RNG reduction comes in two forms — one, some skills, traits, and weather effects have been tweaked to reduce their ‘randomness’; and two, ‘Reduced RNG Mode’ has been added to the game’s single-player campaign, and it will be enabled by default for online matches.

For all of the changes, bug fixes, and more, here are the full patch notes from the game’s Steam page:

Version 1.1.0

Game Updates

  • Added a new item called ‘Insane Spinner’, which lets players playing on the Insane difficulty catch any quest Coromon. The Coromon you catch with this Spinner are stored in a hidden inaccessible storage, but can be handed in for quests
  • Added a new difficulty setting which disables the catching of any Coromon
  • Added a new difficulty setting that lets you select any Coromon as your starter, for those Swurmy Only runs
  • Milestones 51-100 are now available
  • Milestones 1-50 have been updated; if you’ve unlocked them already you can find the updated rewards in your inventory
  • Revitaliser Gem now recovers 6% HP (up from 5%)
  • Traits like Prepared will show an indicator for the user (not the opponent) to show when the effect is active
  • Premonition now deals Ghost damage
  • Burn condition now lowers the Coromon’s Special Attack stat by 30%
  • Poison condition now lowers the Coromon’s Attack stat by 30%
  • Sand Spout Skill Flash is now available in Vermeer Grotto
  • Inspect Scent and Trait Scent have been disabled for online play
  • Kyraptor can no longer learn Crunch
  • A number of skills that do flat damage (like Splash) or percentage (like Death Grip in PvP) are no longer influenced by damage-increasing effects (like Rain, sharp claws)

Game Fixes

  • Fixed Revenge Jaws, Sumo Stance and Frigid Barrier Skills, these are now functioning as described
  • Shell Drill now lowers special defense, as intended
  • Fixed “invalid battle” error that happened when two Coromon with a weather-applying Trait faint at once in an online battle.

Conditions & weather

  • Sleep condition is replaced by the Drowsy condition; drowsy Coromon will have 30% reduced Attack and Special Attack stat, and every hit on them is a critical hit. The condition lasts for 4 turns.
  • Updated Shock condition: instead of a 25% chance to do nothing each turn, the effect triggers every fourth turn and now included a visual indicator when that happens
  • Twilight effect has been changed: In Twilight, ghost Coromon won’t make contact with their targets, and positive stat boosts on non-ghost Coromon become negative stat boosts

Reduced RNG mode

  • Added Reduced RNG mode setting for single player, enforced it in PvP:
  • All skills with less than 100 accuracy now have 100 accuracy, but their effects will slightly diminish
  • Their power is multiplied by the accuracy percentage. For example a skill that had 100 power and 85 accuracy, will now have 100 x 0.85 = 85 power
  • One hit KO Skills will now damage the target for 35% of their current HP
  • Drowsy condition only lasts for 2 rounds, but Skills that apply them have 100 accuracy.
  • Side effects on skills (e.g. 25% to Burn the target) won’t trigger randomly anymore, but will instead trigger every Xth turn, where X is determined by the original percentage. An indicator below the Skill button will show if and when the side effects will trigger.
  • Critical hits get the same treatment as side effects and are now predetermined, but still affected by the amount of stat changes on your Critical Hit Chance.
  • A number of Traits trigger every X turns, instead of having a chance to trigger each turn.
  • Number of strikes on multi hits is now influenced by Speed stat changes. If the Coromon has a negative Speed stat change (i.e. its Speed was lowered by 1 stage or more) then the least amount of strikes will occur. With a positive Speed stat change the highest amount of strikes will occur.

Trait Enhancements & Devolution

  • Coromon that could but haven’t evolved now benefit from Trait Enhancements, at the cost of certain stat reductions defined by the Trait. (e.g. Antidote+ will drop 15% Attack and Special Attack, while Conductor+ will drop 30% Attack and Defense) You can find these percentages by pressing on the stats in the evolution details.
  • Coromon summary has a new tab where you can see the changes your Coromon could benefit from
  • When a Coromon evolves you can now stop the evolution
  • You can trigger the skipped evolution of a non-evolved Coromon via the new tab in the Coromon summary
  • Introduced a new item: Devolve Pill. It devolves a Coromon. Who would’ve guessed?
  • Loan Squads in PvP now also include non-evolved Coromon

Example Trait Enhancement stages:

  • Nano Skin: This Coromon’s regenerative exoskeleton makes it immune to bleeding.
  • Nano Skin+: This Coromon’s regenerative exoskeleton makes it immune to bleeding. Recovers from status problems two rounds after they are inflicted.
  • Nano Skin++: This Coromon’s regenerative exoskeleton makes it immune to bleeding and all status problems.
