2.0 has a lot of creatures that seem to dominate the arena and tournaments. Maxima and tryko are perfect examples of creatures that everyone fears now, and thylacotator’s buff is no secret, but there are some creatures that kinda flew under the radar that are important to mention that could be a major threat in the near future.
Lets kick this off with some counter-attackers: One is being used constantly as of now while another saw a bit of a new playstyle. These are Purrolyth and Grypolyth. These 2 have similar, but differnt playstyles and new mechanics and moves really help them out. Grypo used to have a simple boost strategy: all in the hp. But with the regen changes, this is not the case. However, grypo’s stall game became a lot easier as it can reheal every 2 turns rather than 3. This, paired with immobilize means grypo is only really attacking once a turn. Then we have it’s component purrolyth. Purrolyth benefited from the regen mechanic being based on attack thanks to ferocious strike. Now, it can reheal 3000 hp rather than 1800. And with the counter buff it got plus the ferocious boost, it’s doing more damage every counter than carnotarkus. This may allow it to steal suchotator’s “best rare” trophy.
Charging in next is Brontolasmus. This epic was nerfed with the definite rampage nerfed as it went from having 2 rampages to a rampage and an impact. While it did lose some speed with 2.0, it outputs insane damage numbers. 2 impacts that slow with each doing 1950 damage a pop is nothing to sneeze at. And to make things more interesting, it’s topped off with a rampage and an immunity to decel. It hay have had some hp and speed removed, but brontolasmus is back.
Grylenken was a hybrid that everyone said looked cool, but was never great. It’s whole kit was a mess and it had a counter attack that was not too great at all. But now grylenken got some love with some very strong buffs. While not as good as another legendary bird, grylenken got a damage buff as well as a new rampage move. While the downside is that they both have a 1 turn delay, grylenken still has cunning strike to wait it out. And, unlike many speedsters, grylenken has a resistance to decel (although 50%).
Tyrannolophosaur rarely saw any use. All it was good for was to make tenontorex. Well, it got some love that has gone under the radar. With distracting impact, 30% crit, and more attack, tyrannolophosaur is better than 1.14 tenontorex. This thing can reduce the fierce creature’s damage or it can breat through the resilient creatures. And, this thing also can take out big chompers like marsupial lion and 1 for 1 thylacotator. It can also fight the next creature on this list with great success
Finally, we have a creature overshadowed by its superhybrid being the best creature in the game. That’s right, it’s Ardontosaurus who is a MAJOR sleeper of 2.0. 1500 damage on a creature like this isn’t gonna turn out well for anything on the other end. And like it’s superhybrid, we have another 100% trykosaurus counter. In fact, ardont puts out more damage in 2 turns than maxima himself, which is crazy. Now, the hp is where ardont struggles, but it’s not like there isn’t much to go around. And then you have all the resistances and immunitites. This thing now can take out old counters, like carnotarkus, mammotherium, trykosaurus, and so on. This thing could be the big threat of the legendary tournament.
