  1. Hi there! I was searching for some english sites about this game and chanced upon your blog! how far are you into the game now? There is something about the increasing of level of your monsters’ skill that i don’t know about.
    dont really understand the japanese but i’ve played for quite some time haha. nice to know that english speakers play this too!

    • Hooray! Another player! XD I’m actually surprised GungHo hasn’t released a localized version yet. In a way, I hope they don’t or else I’ll be spending lots of money buying Magic Stones in THAT one. XD I already spent more than I should have in the JP one. Anyway, are you asking about the option I highlighted in the left screenshot below?

      Evolving monsters

      That’s for evolving your monsters! :D You can only do it if you a) get all the fusion/catalyst monsters and b) max out the monster you want to evolve. In the right screenshot, I have all the fusion monsters needed. The numbers underneath each of the monsters just shows the quantity I have in my Monster Box.

      At the moment, the monster can’t transform since it’s only at level one. Checking a monster’s profile will tell you its max level. There are some that can’t be evolved though. :(

  2. Hey there! I’m playing it too and I’m just wondering how do you actually GIFT friends when you’re Rank 20?

    • Honestly, I’ve never tried because I don’t even know anyone on my list; they were all just random passerbys that I chose to enter dungeons with. XD

      Wanna experiment? :3 My ID’s 150,344,221. I got one free slot on my friends list. :D

      • Thank you for this great guide. I have been playing this game for the last week and I love it. Although I live in Japan, my Japanese is sub-par so this was a great help. I added you as a friend. My name is threads and my ID is: 125,552,206

        • Guh. I don’t think I have space on my friends list. ^^ I guess I can ditch someone that hasn’t logged in for a while … Or actually, there are people ditching ME. :P I have one available slot. XD It makes me feel sad when people deem my monster useless to take to dungeons. :(((

    • Buh!? How did you get to rank 102!? I can barely do the most recent dungeon I’m unlocked. (It’s the first one that requires 7 Stamina.) And I’ve never seen any skill increase option before or that window. D: I was under the option that skill levels could only be increased through levelling up monsters. .___.;;;;

      Also, I totally didn’t realize you were asking about SKILL in your first comment. Sorry about that. >___<

      • Haha no worried dude! It’s nice to see English speaking players for a fully Japanese game. I can’t copy that text to google translate if not I’d have done it. It’s one of those tips that randomly appear after you finishes a dungeon.

        I play quite often (actually very often) so maybe that’s why! Just earn money and keep making the monsters stronger.

        Some days youll get free Magic stones from the developers but I’m not sure why. By the way I’ve sent u a request!

  3. By the way something weird just happened! I was trying out this gifting feature when I went to the “friends” tab and tappe the fifth option. I was prompted to choose a friend and after that I was brought to a golden gacha dragon and got a little dragon from there that went into my inventory!

    Not that I’m complaining as I don’t have that dragon, but I don’t know what happened!

    • Hi, just to reply to you, you can send one and only one friend a gift when you hit rank 20. To upgrade skills, you merge the pets with the same skills in order to level that particular skill up, Hope this helps you!

      • Hi! Thank you! I found that out myself kinda randomly. Do you wanna leave your ID for me to add? I wanna add more English speaking friends!!

        By the way koukoupuffs, merging monsters with same type will receive bonus exp!

        • Thanks for all the info! I managed to get my Siren(? The katakana reads seire-n) up 2 levels by using like-monsters (1.2x experience). :D I can’t believe I wasted 30+ levels upgrading them in the dark. XD

          I’m also playing a lot less dumb now. ^^ Going out of my way to always make 3+ combos. :P

          Whoa. Just cleared the 3rd set of fire dungeons. D: Onto water now. DD:

      • My ID is 140,156,225.

        Does anyone know what’s monster No. 176 used for? The cute sitting dragon-like thing.

        • Hi Yuling, i’ve added you! That dragon is purely for merging with your main monsters to increase their level. Certain times during the day, there will be a random 1hr ‘urgent’ quest where there are no. 177 and 178. 178 is worth the most exp.

          Koukoupuff, try to get some dragons from the friendship gacha! This week there’ll be more rare monsters that’ll help!

          For those who understand a bit of chinese, there’s a chinese wiki page here http://zh.pad.wikia.com/index.php?title=Puzzle_%26_Dragons_%E7%BB%B4%E5%9F%BA&variant=zh-tw.

  5. I have also been recently start playing this game. I have a couple of questions though:

    - Is there a player level limit in the game (max level)?
    - for the special dungeon, particularly the dragon boss dungeons, do those boss drop their egg as well?

    My friend ID is: 125,357,249

    Currently my level is 16 and just have room for 2 more… ^_^” Hopefully get more slot through leveling…

    • Hi, there is no limit to your level. I have “friends” on my list over 160 and I’m about 120.

      Those bosses in special dungeons do drop eggs but they’re hard as hell. And drop rate increases with the difficulty of the dungeon. Given your level now you should just stick with normal dungeons (:

  6. Hi Nyan,

    Thanks for the reply. :D

    Also, about the Metal dragons special dungeon, do you have a recommended minimum level for a successful run? I seen the data from the wiki source and most metal dragons have over thousands defences….

  7. Hi, I just stumbled upon this article today. I live in Japan and am an avid player of the Japanese P&D. I’ve always wanted to build an English P&D wiki database from the wealth of information I’ve received while playing and discussing with other players. If this sounds like something some of you may be interested in, let me know! I’m also a translator, so feel free to throw anything Japanese my way.

    • Hi Anthony, may I know where do u usually discuss the games with other players? Some online forums?

      I’m a bit interested but how are you gonna go about doing it?

      • In person!

        After thinking it over, the best format would probably be as a smartphone app, but that would mean I’d have to learn how to develop for both iOS and Android.

          Add or send me message through here and we can chat. Without disturbing the author here with notification emails!

          As for the app, ah I wish I can help..

          • Looks like your friend list is packed, lol.

            Here’s my ID, just in case: 179,173,398

            Also, I don’t have access to your profile, so I can’t get your contact info. What to do?

  8. If you wanna create combos this may helpful. The app name is “Big Combo”.
    iOS/Android. I used it for Zeus dungeon.
