Creating Hybrid philosophy?

So, I do have a question mainly out of curiosity to Ludia. So @Ned or @J.C, if you two can help shed any light. What is Ludia’s philosophy when it comes to creating hybrids? Mainly questions like;

  • What kind of creatures do you look at when looking for hybridizing material (like one that isn’t used often, or one no one even bothers trying to get?)
  • How do you calculate power, DNA cost, and coin earning from them.
  • What do you visually picture in your head, a hybrid should look like? Sometimes similar to one creature, or looking completely different from what was used to make it?

You know, I don’t know the artist’s process to be honest, but I can ask the dev team if that’s something they can share. No promises they will but I can definitely ask.

No problem, I just thought sense hybrids are one of big drives for the game, it would interesting to hear how coming with new hybrids actually works.

Whatever the philosophy is, the pterosaurs suffer in the non-shiny department. Tapejalosaurus is the best non-tournament hybrid IMO, as Suchoripterus and Tropegopterus are pretty weak for their leagues. We need a Pteranodon hybrid with similar ferocitiy to Indominus or Ostaposaurus.

This to be honest
I have a few ideas in mind:

  • Scaphognathus + Aerotitan
  • Pteranodon + Quetzalcoatlus (Or Gallimimus)
  • Allosaurus + Aerotitan (Could be either a much superior Alangasaurus or just a super rare Suchoripterus)

And speaking of pterosaur hybrids when are we going to get a ptero superhybrid? Pterosaurs really get the short end of the stick.

To add to this convo, look at how many non-tournament dinos aren’t part of a hybrid:

  • Gallimimus
  • Allosaurus
  • Corythosaurus
  • Aerotitan
  • Pteranodon
  • Scaphognathus
    Only six of these guys, which really emphasizes how big hybrids are in the game. I really can’t wait until they have hybrids of their own.

True, but sense they’re now hybridizing aquatics and Cenozoics, that opens the window for new hybrids much wider.

What about the toy about gallamimiles and teradon
