Monsters being recruitable limits how powerful they can be made.

However if the majority isn't opposed to it, they can be sealed off as enemy only (exception being boco) and made much more powerful for the random encounters

I second this. Giving them much more powerful abilities makes random encounters that much more deadly.

Also a neat thing is, if a monster is given an mp growth rate so that he gains 1 mp per level and then given a spell that costs say 10 mp

he can use it infinately because monsters dont consume mp, however, he has to be on about lvl 9 or 10 to use it.

Uber-strong non-recruitable monsters IMO, it will be more interesting that way.

i will leave opportunity to get perhaps one or two chocobos and maybe a goblin or something with a toned down skillset perhaps.

Boco can already use every chocobo skill (at mp costs) including the unique skill to him "Choco Downfeathers"

Hmm... I don't know if I'd like for monsters to not be able to be recruited. Monsters are always fun, maybe you could make it to where you could only recruit the lowest tier monster and they only breed lower tiered monsters?

Or is that just not possible?

yes its easily possible, and probable, to make the low tier recruitable only, OR to make rare occurances where you find guest versions that are recruitable at battles end

I like the idea of rae battles where they're guests, make all the monsters unable to breed too

non breeding has been implemented.

A bit of extra info:
Boco is a special yellow chocobo, even tho (if this is how i set up monsters) there are other yellow chocobos available, they wont have the full set that boco has.

currently the easiest setup right now would be to allow Tier 1 monsters to be recruitable

but im not sure yet. ill continue to wait for more votes.

either the Tier 1 available only

or

all recruitable and monsters don't become super beastly
