Metamorphosis, (Japanese: 変身 henshin), is a process in which a Meta Monster transforms into a stronger species after certain conditions are met. Metamorphosis may contain multiple stages, and most Meta Monsters are able to transform twice.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Metamorphosis is spiritually similar to evolution from the Pokemon series in that a Meta Monster undergoes a transformation that changes it into a different creature, while retaining traits from its original form. Most Meta Monsters that can undergo this process will transform after reaching a certain level, much like in Pokemon. However, new methods of transforming have been introduced that are rather different from Pokemon. A few of these include conditions such as leveling up during a certain time of day in real time, filling a rage meter triggered from taking damage in several battles, and catching them in a certain type of Disc Capsule. Whenever a Meta Monster undergoes Metamorphosis, it will be seen transforming into the next trasformation stage, rather than changing through a flash of light.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Meta Monsters are named after the procedure of metamorphosis, despite the fact that some do not transform.
