How to trade in Temtem

Temtem is one of the more ambitious Pokemon-like games to come out, especially since it comes from a much smaller team. While it does have the goal of bringing the concept of a monster collecting and battling game into more modern times with things like full online, MMO-style gameplay, it does keep many of the mechanics that we all loved about its inspiration. That includes basics like catching new Temtem, evolving them, battling, and also trading.

What You Need

  • A trading partner

Trading in Temtem has many uses, as well as some hidden restrictions and secrets tied to it. Just like in a true Pokemon game, trading is basically required to complete your collection without spending dozens of hours searching for that one critter you're missing. It's quite easy and intuitive once you know how it works, but it's a little obscure to access at first. Here's a full walkthrough on how to trade in Temtem.

How to trade

Trading is done via proximity in Temtem. You don't have to be directly next to someone to trade, but you need to at least be in the same zone. Once you're loaded into an area and are ready to find a trading partner, here's what to do.

Step 1: Open your Menu.

Step 2: Select the icon of Two people to expand your menu.

Step 3: Select Interact.

Step 4: A list of all nearby Tamers will appear. Also, if you have friends, you can directly select them.

Step 5: Select the Tamer you want to trade with, then choose Trade on the right side.

Step 6: Wait for the other Tamer to accept.

Step 7: Add any Temtem, items, or Pansuns onto your side of the trade offer, and wait for your partner to do the same.

Step 8: Once you and your partner agree to the trade, select Ready.

Other trading details

As simple as trading is, Temtem doesn't let you use it to exploit the game. Every Tamer has a hidden level cap that prevents them from using a Temtem of a higher level that you get through trades, so you can't have a friend give you a max level Temtem on your first day. You can still do the trade but will have to wait until you level up enough to use that Temtem.

There is one Temtem that can evolve by being traded. This is Azuroc, which evolves into the final form Zenoreth after being traded.

Mario and friends have chased down Peach to Marrymore late into Super Mario RPG. It isn't Bowser who has her in his clutches this time, but Booster, who intends to marry the princess against her will. After busting into the church to call things off, Peach's crown and other accessories will be scattered across the chapel. You will need to find every last missing item before the ceremony begins, but they aren't all in plain sight. Here is where to find Peach's crown and all her other accessories in Super Mario RPG.
Where to find all of Peach's accessories

Aside from her crown, you will need to find her shoes, ring, and brooch as well.
Peach's crown location
The crown is the easiest to find since it will be in sight right away. After the collision, the crown ends up resting atop Booster's head standing at the altar. All you need to do is jump on top of him to get it back.
Shoes, ring, and brooch locations
The other three items weren't dropped on the floor, but havebeen collected by Booster's Sniffits. These quick little dudes will be running in patterns around the church and pews, so you need to intercept and speak to each of them. Just talking to them will do the trick -- you don't have to engage in a fight -- so just mash the talk button as you approach.

We've had a dancing game and musou spinoff, but now the Persona 5 cast has entered the realm of tactics with Persona 5 Tactica. The translation feels obvious when you think about it, but naturally, there have to be some changes to make it fit. For fans of the original JRPG, experimenting with the new combat system will take a little getting used to, especially relearning what skills are best. This game is quite friendly to those who are not as well-versed in the genre and allows you to try out your build and completely rework it if you need to.

Each character has their own skill tree that you can invest your GP into for buffs and skills. The way you invest early on can make the first few hours either much more difficult or a smoother experience. If you're feeling some buyer's remorse, respecing any character is not only easy, but can be done as many times as you like at no cost.
