This week, we’re taking a look at “Bootlegs” in Cassette Beasts. What’s all this about? Let’s take a look!

Ocassionally, in Cassette Beasts, you’ll stumble upon an odd-coloured monster in the world.

This Squirey here is usually beast-type, yet it’s appeared here with the wrong colour and element! This is a “bootleg” – signified by its name in red above its health bar. This is different from a monster using a coating move to change its element, which can be done in battle as a temporary element swapping.

Any monster has a small chance to appear with any element as bootleg.

The colour even matches its new element!

Bootleg monsters don’t just have different elements – they also have a new move pool to match. This means a monster may have access to a whole selection of moves they wouldn’t normally have. On top of this, bootleg tapes have a slightly higher chance to learn moves with uncommon or rare bonus traits.

This sure leaves a lot of things to collect, huh? Tell us what bootleg monster tapes you’d like to collect! If you want to ask any questions, feel free to visit the official Discord and follow us on Twitter!
