Since I'm always out and about, it makes it easy to catch more and rare Denpa men, but I don't want to look like a fool moving my 3DS all around ,to catch that rare and annoy Denpa man -_-
Too bad there isn't a easy way to get more from where you live.

It actually answers this question on the FAQ on their main website: http://www.denpamen.com/faq/index.html

I have a question I posted earlier. What happens to Denpa Men that go back to their territory after they die? Do they revert back to their original level or is your progress with them saved and you just have to pick them up?

Living in the countryside I'm a little worried about the number of Wifi hotspots determining how many Denpa Men you can catch.

^I think all uncaught Denpa Men are always in the same league as your party, level wise. When I first booted up the game, all the catchable Denpa Men were level 1. After completing the demo's dungeon, all the Denpa Men floating around were at level 5 (the same as most of my party), this includes the same ones I saw earlier, since I was in the same area. After grinding some, all the Denpa men floating around were at level 11 (again, same as most of my party). Based on that, I'd think that your progress with them (if you have to recatch them) will be intact, and if not it'll be in the same ballpark. Also, if you have any offerings, you can bring them back via the Spirit Shrine, saving yourself the trouble of catching them again.

Why haven't you called lately? I feel like I never see you anymore.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

Philip_J_Reed

Whew, sorry for the delay!

I will start leveling mine up, since I guess 7 won't be good enough then.

That's about where mine were toward the end of the demo...but you'll want at least level 10 to fully dig into the next dungeon, so you might as well do that now while you're waiting.

Do the dungeons get bigger and more complicated?

Bigger, yes! More complicated...it depends on what you mean by that. So far I haven't had to solve environmental puzzles or seek out keys or anything, but they do add floor hazards, optional sub areas and so on.

Do the Denpa Men really vary according to the radio waves of your surroundings as bboy mentioned?

I don't think so. I think the selection of Men randomly generates at each location you visit, regardless of what the "radio waves" actually are. Can't say for sure and the manual's not totally clear on that point, but that's my best guess.

Still, the difficulty you hinted at is intriguing & a bit surprising, given how the game's presented.

I was surprised too. There's legitimate challenge here!

What is antenna root? I'm guessing a really nice surprise once the ability comes out!?

An antenna root means that as the Man levels up, the antenna will eventually sprout and give you an ability. So far none of my roots turned out to be unique skills. I think it's just meant to show you that they're worth catching. No root: no ability, ever. Root: Random ability, eventually. Antenna: Definite ability, immediately usable. Abilities also upgrade as your Men level up...so far I haven't had a no-root sprout a root, but we'll see!

Too bad there isn't a easy way to get more from where you live.

If you wait a day or so, the stock seems to respawn. So you don't always have to seek out new places. If you do that I guess you get them sooner, but my house at first was only giving up Black, White, Green and Blue. The next time I checked was two days later, and the entire selection changed.

What happens to Denpa Men that go back to their territory after they die? Do they revert back to their original level or is your progress with them saved and you just have to pick them up?

They seem to level up along with you, at least roughly. I lost a bunch around level 8, and when I found them again (not through the shrine, but through normal hunting) they remembered me, and were around 10 or 11.

Living in the countryside I'm a little worried about the number of Wifi hotspots determining how many Denpa Men you can catch.

See my answer above. They do restock, and also, if you're not getting the ones you want, you can buy items and even clothing that can give your Denpa Men different attributes. So if you're getting all water types and need some fire types, you can basically reassign the ones you have. It may require some gold grinding, but it's possible! You'll never get totally stuck.

Why haven't you called lately? I feel like I never see you anymore.

Tell your sister to stop hanging up on me.

Anyway, ChickenBrutus Protip: If the game decides to give you an orange guy as your leader to start out with, consider restarting the game and getting a different color. Orange is weak to the attacks in the first main dungeon, and since you'll be of low level and probably with little gold, he'll get wiped out fast and regularly. I learned that the hard way. I did power through, so it's doable, but man did it get irritating!

In the full version are there different bad guys in each level and do they get stronger than the ones in the demo?

Philip_J_Reed

There are the obvious expected recolors, but so far, yes, each dungeon has unique enemies (and bosses). And yeah, they do get stronger. Prepare to do a lot of elemental juggling.

Are you ever able to go back to the demo dungeon and access that L-shaped room on B3F with the 5 treasure chests?

Exactly.

I have an antennaless denpa and he's pretty much a tank, way better defense and hp than my other denpa men.

I assume so! But last time I checked — which was admittedly a while ago — I still couldn't get to them.

The title is like some kind of terrible scifi monster flick from the 50s.

So I'm downloading the demo now.

@Philip_J_Reed, how much do the dungeon themes vary? Are they mostly pallete swaps of the cave motif that the first dungeon sports, or do they vary with temple, forest, ect. themes?

This game was surprisingly good. O_O I wasn't expecting much at all.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

So far a few cave motifs (understandable), but there's at least one that takes place in an open forest. As I advance in the game I expect to see more like that...it keeps it nice and varied, visually speaking, but the feel of "dungeon crawling" never quite abandons the game.

When it's their money, that's perfectly understandable

In the demo, it ends going on about other islands... are other islands the other dungeons?

NNID: willobee

RR529

^ I would imagine that there are (multiple) dungeons on the other islands (seeing as how the island in the demo has multiple locations. even if only one of them is a dungeon. There are actually two locked locations on the demo's island, so one or both of them could be dungeons as well).

I've got new information regarding the location of Denpa Men and how they are determined in an area. As we know, the game uses wifi hotspots as an indicator of where you are with the system. I have discovered that certain Denpa Men are set to certain hotspots. For example, I see this one chap by the name of Olin floating around my house every time I look (He's the only one since I captured everyone else). I've checked my house every day since I got the demo and he has been the only one every time so if Denpas DO switch out with new ones after a while, it must take a while. On that same note, if Denpas switch out, it should have to be somehow based in date. I know this (and this is the exciting part) because I had a co-worker grab the demo and search my workplace with her 3DS (just like with my house, I see the same 2 Denpa Men at my work that are always there) and the Denpa Men she saw were the exact same ones that I saw! This means that somehow, based on a number or some type of info the 3DS takes from a hotspot, it has some tyoe of formula for creating Denpa Men from it! I think that is SO cool! So I can be like "hey, if you want a really strong Denpa Man, there is one named Bill that hangs around the McDonalds down the street." I am absolutely DYING for this game to come out!

Oh wow that sounds awesome.
It makes the fact that the game generated two denpas with meaningful names for my household (my dad's name and my brother's idol (Lennon)) even more awesome (though I bet I simply got lucky).

I haven't been able to find any more denpas in my house though, after the fifth they've stopped "respawning" in my house
