Temtem BEST Team: Stats, Traits & Tips

This guide discusses the best team in Temtem and entails the best early game tips for building one.

For a game that is heavily reliant on its creatures, or Temtems, as the game likes to call them, it is crucial to have a team where each Temtem makes up for the other’s weaknesses. That is why in today’s, we will be covering the best team you can build in Temtem.

Temtem is the latest MMORPG, developed by Crema and published by Humble Bundle. From the get-go, the Temtem’s biggest inspiration is visible, which is Pokemon. You play as a tamer and go around catching pokemon-like creatures in a massive world.

Despite the inspirations, the systems of earning money and XP aren’t exactly the same, which is why we recommend going through our best ways to make money in Temtem and leveling-up guides to learn about the best ways to earn them. 

Despite the inspiration, you might wanna know what sets this game apart from Pokemon. For that, consider reading our review on Temtem to learn about our experience with the game.

Best Team In Temtem

Elemental Temtems

As you explore various islands of the Airborne Archipelago, you will not only come across Temtems you can tame but will also face other tamers from time to time. So the gameplay loop of Temtem is not just about hoarding Temtems but also building a team of ones you can utilize to take down other tamers. 

For that reason, finding and building an excellent team of Temtems is absolutely necessary if you want to beat other tamers. A good team of Temtems doesn’t necessarily mean having all the A-tiers or S-tiers of Temtems, but the team should consist of creatures of all types. In other words, having a team of Temtems comprised of different types of elements will allow you to have the advantage no matter the situation.

Below, we will discuss the best team of Tems you can build in Temtem. Speaking of tiers of Temtems, why not go through our best Temtem tier list before you read any further?

Kaku

Kaku is a cute blue-colored Temtem covered with dark red flowers. It keeps those petals wrapped around its chubby, rounded body in order to keep itself safe. Kaku is a Nature-type Temtem that can be later evolved into Saku.

Now, let’s discuss what makes Kaku a great addition to your team. Kaku’s Urushiol ability is highly useful against Water and Nature type Tems. Secondly, Kaku can very quickly evolve into Saku in just about 13 levels. Furthermore, Kaku’s AoE attack, Allergic Spread, is great if you want to deal damage to all creatures of the enemy’s team.

The stats of Kaku are listed below:

  • HP: 69
  • STA: 48
  • SPD: 35
  • ATK: 60
  • DEF: 60
  • SPATK: 35
  • SPDEF: 50

Traits

  • Caffeinated: Kaku’s trait “caffeinated” helps it avoid sleep status.
  • Mithridatism: This trait makes Kaku resistant to poison status.

Weakness & Resistances

Before we list Kaku’s weaknesses & resistances below, you need to understand how weaknesses & resistances in Temtem work. Each element in Temtem is weak to some elements and strong to others. You can decide what elements it is weak or strong by analyzing the numbers.

If the value of the elements listed below is higher than x1, it means that those elements are strong against your creature, or in other words, your creature is weak to those elements. While you are at, why not go through our guide on the best Soulslike games?

Similarly, if the number is lower than x1, that means your creature is resistant to those elements. The weakness and resistance of Kaku below will give you more clarity on how this system works.

Kaku is resistant to Fire and Toxic and resistant to Water, Nature, Electric, and Earth type Tems.

  • x4: None
  • x2: Fire & Toxic
  • 0.5x: Water, Nature, Electric, & Earth
  • x0.25: None

Team Tips & Tricks

Now that you are aware of the best team you can build in Temtem, let’s discuss some early game tips and how to avoid early game mistakes rookies usually makes. 

Be Aware Of Your Weaknesses

It’s just simply good enough to have a team of great Tems without having a good idea of what their weaknesses and strengths are. So even if you, for some reason, can’t find the Temtems in our guide, for example, Nessla, which is a very rare Temtem, you can still make a decision for yourself. You can do this by analyzing which elements you lack and what type of Temtems are effective against the opponent you are facing. 

By doing this, you will never fall behind, no matter at what stage of the game you are.

Build A Team Around Your Starter

This one is a no-brainer. When it comes to building teams, the first thing you need to analyze is the advantages and disadvantages of your starting Temtem. In other words, the Tems you catch later on should make up for the weaknesses of your starter. Similarly, you don’t need more Tems that will essentially do the same job as your starter.

This will help in making a robust team without having any useless Temtems lying around in your inventory.

Prioritizing Deniz And Omninesia Early On

Early on in the game, the islands you should be targeting are Deniz and Omninesia. This will help in not only acquiring some great Temtems early on but are also relatively easier to clear if you have built the team we recommend in our guide.

The Temtems in these islands primarily consist of Water, Wind, Nature, and Fire. So by having Tems, which are affiliated with Water and Electricity, while also having the ability to perform Toxic moves, it will take you no time to breeze through these islands.

This concludes our guide on the best teams in Temtem. Let us know what you think about our guide in the comments below.

Temtem is currently available for Playstation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Microsoft Windows, and Nintendo Switch.
