Digimon Survive: How To Recruit, Questions & Answers

Our guide covers the steps to recruit Digimon and all Digimons that you can recruit.

Digimon Survive is a strategy game, and filling your roster via Digimon Survive Recruitment is an important part of this game. You begin the game by recruiting Agumon, but as the game progresses, you will need more than just Agumon to win.

By recruiting Digimon, you will have more powerful allies in your team. Having a strong team means that you can dominate the battle easily. However, recruiting Digimon is not an easy task, so we have covered everything you need to do or know to recruit Digimon. Also, consider reading our Digimon Rearise Tier List.

Once you start playing Digimon Survive, you will experience the main characters going to the Digital World. After finishing the story prologue, you will enter part 1 of the game, and here you will experience the free battle for the first time. Free Battle will be unlocked, and you will start exploring the school building.

The free battle will not just be the time where you will experience the free battle but also the time where you will start recruiting other Digimons. Highlighting the free battle option at this point will make a Digimon appear at the bottom of the screen. Make sure to revisit these locations, as Digimon may change or grow. 

Steps For Digimon Survive Recruitment

Recruiting Digimon is not a simple and straightforward task; you need to follow the steps given below to have more Digimons on your team.

Talk To Enemy Digimon

Once you are in a battle, you can choose the speak option instead of the attack or move option. You should talk to enemy Digimon here instead of talking to your party member. The purpose of the conversation is to have Digimon by your side. You should start a conversation to put Digimon in a good mood to have them on your side.

Answer Digimon’s Questions

Now onwards, Digimon will start asking you a variety of questions. You might have encountered this type of conversation in the Persona series. It is time for you to reply to Digimon in a way that you think he will like. If you accurately reply to Digimon in a way he prefers, the friendship bar will increase by two spaces. However, if the answer is just fine, the bar will fill in one space. 

Fill The Friendship Bar

The conversation with Digimon will show a bar over the Digimon. This bar fluctuates with your answers. The more favorably you reply to Digimon, the more the bar will increase. Once the bar crosses the middle line, you will get a chance to ask Digimon for something. You can either ask him for some item or be a part of your team. 

If you are not able to cross the middle line, Digimon will get a stat boost in return to use against you for the rest of the fight. In some cases, even if you fill the friendship bar by having a good conversation with Digimon, they can still say no to joining your team. It will not be wrong to say that the choice to join your team is completely on Digimon. 

Chance Of Recruitment

You will also be able to see a percentage chance of whether Digimon will join your team or not. If you see a low recruitment chance, it is better for you to order just one item. Moreover, the strength of Digimon is also a factor that plays a part in recruitment.

The stronger the Digimon, the lower will be the chance of recruitment. However, you can always level up your stat and try for the stronger Digimon. Note that this percentage chance is not just for recruitment but also for ordering items.
