Ni No Kuni Familiar Guide

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has finally landed on Western shores and the Ghibli JRPG is just as charming as you’d expect. The fantastical world is littered with an abundance of wild animals which you will encounter on your travels that can be tamed and adopted as familiars. Whilst Oliver is well on his way to becoming an accomplished wizard, he’s not going to be bludgeoning his way through ranks of wild monsters with his measly wand any time soon. Familiars will join you in battle serving as the complimentary muscle to Oliver’s magically inclined mind. This guide will provide you with a detailed look at each monster and furnish you with some helpful tips to get you started.

    How can I know if the familiar is a normal, early riser or late bloomer?

    As useless as this is, it's a case of observing their patterns as they level up if I recall correctly. Although if you're planning on grinding, I'd just pick whoever is your favourite as you'll have plenty of time for them to level up. The discrepancy in how fast they level up is quite obvious so you should be able to tell which category they fall into fairly quickly. I hope this helps, despite how vague it is!
