Coromon: The Best Coromon in The Game

Coromon, released in March 2022 for the Nintendo Switch and Steam, is a fresh entry into the monster taming genre of video games which has been so utterly monopolized for the last two decades. TRAGsoft's game touts itself as, though not explicitly by name, Pokemon for players wanting a deeper challenge, with a complex battling system, invigorating boss battles, and multiple save slots.

But we're all here for the 'mons, aren't we? With over 120 original creatures to catch, there's plenty to sift through. Fortunately, we've already done that part so that you don't have to, and we've collated our favorites to share. Here are a few of the best Coromon to be found.

NOTE: The only discernable metric that we've used is aesthetic, and the order is based on where they appear in Coromon's database, and even that is up in the air, as the available Coromon information is… limited.

12 Cubzero

Entry number one in the Coromon database is Cubzero, an Ice Type Coromon which is one of the three starter options at the beginning of the game. Despite being a starter, it can be found in the wild, although it's incredibly rare.

Just look at it. Cubzero is a wobbly, little, baby bear wearing a snowball! Its Potent Form is a gorgeous, icy blue, and its Perfect Form looks like a sentient cherry snowcone.

11 Megalobite

Entry number nine in the Coromon database is Megalobite, a Water Type Coromon. It's the third (and fully evolved) stage of Nibble, one of the three starter options at the beginning of the game.

Megalobite is a tanky, bipedal shark with hammerhead fists and a gold piercing in its dorsal fin, so it is objectively the raddest thing you've seen all day. Honestly, if it were revealed that this Coromon was secretly a character from the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles, we wouldn't even bat an eye.

10 Hountrion

Entry number 19 in the Coromon database is Hountrion, an Electric Type Coromon. It's the second (and fully evolved) stage of Houndos. It's considered to be an uncommon find in the wild, though not impossibly rare.

Hountrion is an iteration of the Greek myth Cerberus, complete with the three monstrous heads, each with their own personality, although the electric tail and fluffy blue fur are entirely original. Are we allowed to give its cute noses little pats, or do we run in fear? Depends on the day!

9 Toravolt

Entry number 26 in the Coromon database is Toravolt, an Electric Type Coromon. It's the second (and fully evolved) stage of Bittybolt. It's considered to be an uncommon find in the wild, though not impossibly rare.

Toravolt is the classiest tiger we've ever seen. Lightning courses through its stripes in a rumbling wave that's mesmerizing to behold, and the tufts of fur around Toravolt's neck make it feel like a Super Saiyan. Plus, it's probably really good for cuddles.

8 Eclyptor

Entry number 40 in the Coromon database is Eclyptor, a Ghost Type Coromon. It's the third (and fully evolved) stage of Lunarpup. This Coromon line is considered to be commonly accessible in the wild, but that doesn't take away from its value.

Look, we know this is essentially Absol, all the way down to the luck facet of its design, but we're suckers for edgy little anime monsters, and literally every single dog, ever. We like to think that it can play fetch with that crescent moon slung jauntily across its back.

7 Mudma

Entry number 58 in the Coromon database is Mudma, a Ghost Type Coromon. It's the second (and fully evolved) stage of Droople. This Coromon line is considered to be commonly accessible in the wild, but that doesn't take away from its value.

Mudma's sludge-like appearance and ominous eyes give us Heartless vibes, even in its Potent and Perfect Forms, but the best thing about this little goop guy is the aggressive try-hard energy its idle animation emits.

6 Grimmask

Entry number 62 in the Coromon database is Grimmask, a Ghost Type Coromon. It’s the second (and fully evolved) stage of Seraphace. It's considered to be an uncommon find in the wild, though not impossibly rare.

Grimmask is what happens if Yamask was designed by Final Fantasy – that is to say, kind of cartoony but absolutely a monster. Inspired by the Biblical Angels Seraphim and Cherubim, it’s horrifying to behold, and ultimately an amazing design… still never going to let it near our Coromon teams, though. Yikes.

5 Patterbit

Entry number 73 in the Coromon database is Patterbit, a Normal Type Coromon. It’s the first stage and can evolve twice, into Pitterbyte and then Cyberbite. This Coromon line is considered to be commonly accessible in the wild, but that doesn't take away from its value.

Everything about Patterbit’s robotic design screams Digimon, and the entire evolutionary design is incredible. The reason Patterbit makes the cut instead of its further stages is the hilarious single propeller that suspends it in the air. Also, look at the way Patterbit’s arms drag beneath it; it knows it's ridiculous.

4 Chonktoad

Entry number 80 in the Coromon database is Chonktoad, a Water Type Coromon. It’s the third (and fully evolved) stage of Taddle. This Coromon line is considered to be commonly accessible in the wild, but that doesn't take away from its value.

Chonktoad, as its name implies, is this massive creature, and wouldn’t be out of place in a Studio Ghibli film. It’s kind of like those dogs that are so ugly that they’re cute, only it’s freakishly big and could probably fit you in its gaping mouth.

3 Purrgy/Ghinx/Purrghast

Entry numbers 82, 83, and 84 are Purrgy, Ghinx, and Purrghast, respectively, an entire evolutionary line of Ghost Type Coromon. This Coromon line is considered to be commonly accessible in the wild, but that doesn't take away from its value. We couldn’t pick a favorite because they’re all immaculate. They’re a line of ghost cats, what more do we have to say, really?

Purrgy is adorable and tiny, like a kid on Halloween wearing a sheet with eye holes cut out. Ghinx is endearingly vicious, like a beautiful combination of Shuppet and Mimikyu. Purrghast looks like a wise and dangerous mentor with that kitty beard and those magic paws.

2 Daricara

Entry number 97 in the Coromon database is Daricara, a Water Type Coromon. It’s the second (and fully evolved) stage of Flowish. It's considered to be an uncommon find in the wild, though not impossibly rare. It’s also a friendly beast, even though it can look menacing.

Also, Daricara has a cape. It’s a bipedal aquatic creature with style and a reptilian Fu Manchu. It’s also worth mentioning that its Perfect Form looks like an intentional Hawlucha color pallet swap.

1 Orotchy

Entry number 104 in the Coromon database is Orotchy, a Ghost Type Coromon. It’s the second (and fully evolved) stage of Otogy. It's considered to be an uncommon find in the wild, though not impossibly rare. Both designs are inspired by Yokai of Japanese folklore, specifically the Orochi.

The eyes on the belly of this thing are haunting, resembling the Homunculi of Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, but the real draw for Orotchy are the mask-like faces, held arms that double as necks. It’s hard to forget. Believe me, we’ve tried.
