The Real Choice

Temtem choice tips and tricks.
First 3 Temtems To choose from.

At the game’s start, choose one of the three Temtems: Crystile, Smazee, or Houchic.

  • Crystile, a Crystal class, excels against Mental and Electric but falters against Earth and Fire. It’s a tank Temtem with strong defense stats.
  • Smazee, a Melee Temtem, shines against Crystal and Earth but struggles against Mental and Digital. It boasts decent strength and defense stats, won in a pub in Lochburg.
  • Houchic, a Metal type, excels against Melee and Neutral but struggles against Crystal. Ideal for players seeking a punchy fighting style.

No wrong choice here, pick what feels right for you at the moment. All are beginner-friendly Temtems.

Fill Up The Supplies

You’ll come across different shops while exploring the world of the Archipelago. These shops sell some great items that will definitely come in handy. Out of these, you want to make sure that you always are stocked up on Balms. Balms heal your injured Temtems and keep them longer in fights. If you talk to Aina, she will come to your home and heal you.

As for the Smoke Bombs, they are great if things turn south. They will transport you to your most recent safe spot. Or it can be handy if you just want to take a break from a tiring battle. Make sure that you aren’t buying supplies that you won’t even use in the game. If you aren’t careful, you’ll run out of Pansum.

When that happens, don’t worry; just take a deep breath and hop onto our guide on Best Ways to Make Money in Temtem.

Gotta Catch ‘em All

Your main goal should be to collect all Temtems. Not only will it give you the satisfaction of having a collection, but you’ll also get different squad Synergies. These synergies will end up giving you an advantage in a battle (which can be powerful). If you have a few synergies, you’ll note that they end up as the reason for your victory or defeat.

Apart from that, collecting different Temtems will let you have a varied team. They will turn out to be helpful in Dojo Wars. Don’t worry if you don’t plan on using Temtems in your squad. If you capture them, you’ll get to check their strength and weakness. It will help you plan your strategy.

Upgrading Storage

If you want to breed the best Temtem types, then you’ll need to have tons of Temtems. Or if you’re not a breeder but want to collect all the Temtems available, then quickly find out that you don’t have enough storage. Don’t worry, your dream of becoming the best breeder or the Collector can still come true. But you’ll have to do a particular side quest.

For this side quest, you’ll have to go to each of the islands and talk to the Temdeck Manager. To start the quest, you’ll have to talk to the Temdeck Manager at Brical de Mar. However, it is a tedious quest but starts to reward as soon as you get into it. With each island you visit, your storage will progressively increase.

Leveling Up Your Temtems

There are two items in the game that increase the exp you’d get from battles in the game. The first one is Coward’s Cloak. And the next item is the Coward’s Blanket.

Coward’s Cloak allows the Temtem that has it equipped to gain exp without taking part in the battle. It is great for when your Temtems are of a lower level, and you’re in a higher level region. That way, your Temtems can stay back while they get ‘passive’ exp.

Coward’s Blanket lets the whole squad gain EXP without taking any part in it. You can take a few lower-level Temtems and then use them to level them up.

Aside from that, there is the Learning Aid item. As the name suggests, it helps your Temtems learn faster and more efficiently. What it means is that the item will double the Exp your Temtems get. You can learn more about Leveling them up in our Best Ways to Level up Temtems guide.

Basics Of Combat

Temtem has a good combat system. Keep one thing in mind, behind every victory is practice, constant practice. And that is true with Temtem too. For Combat, here are our TemTem tips and Tricks that will work flawlessly.

Because the Combat that you’ll get to experience in Archipelago will be challenging, and if you want to win it, you’ll have to train your Tems. However, you can’t just have one single type of Tem, as it will be defeated by its counter. You’ll need to have a variety of Tems available in your Arsenal.

Talking about the Variety, you’ll have to learn about the different types of Temtem available. You should know about their matchups as it will help you win the battles. Most players in such games believe the RNG factor will help them win almost all of the time. Temtem has no such concept, if you win, it’ll be because of you, your Tems, and the knowledge you have gained.

Keep An Eye On The Stats

As we’ve mentioned before, the game doesn’t have an RNG factor. You’ll have to ensure that you’re doing everything correctly. While you’re in the battle, keep an eye on your Tem’s stats. Make sure the necessary Status Conditions are in effect. Knowing what other Tems are carrying as gear can also help you out in the battle. 

Also, once the battle finishes up, you can recheck all your moves and what the enemy did using the logs. Making a habit of checking them will make you the Ultimate Trainer.

Look At The Enemy’s Stamina

As important as it is to keep an eye on your own Temtem’s stamina, it is equally important that you should check out your enemy’s too. If their Tems stamina is low, they can’t attack you in the next turn, and it will give you an edge.

To play with it, you’ll have to learn to swap out your Temtems whenever you can. Your Tems will always have enough stamina, whereas your enemy will be running dry.

Combat Stats.
Keep an eye on your and the enemy’s stats.

If you happen to come across Luma in the world of Archipelago, don’t go on and attack it if you want to tame it (which you’ll obviously want to) then here’s what you should do.

Use the Status Condition that increases the chances of taming a Temtem. And then work on switching your Temtems to keep them alive. Next, you’d want to make sure that the Luma damages itself through overexertion. Then you’ll be able to tame it.

Know Your Enemy In Advance

If you’re in story mode, then you’ll have to go through all of the islands in the game. By progressing through each of these islands, you’ll be able to finish the story. These islands each have a specific set of Temtem types.

The starting island, Deniz, consists of Water and Wind Type Temtems. If you use the Electric types against them, then the battles will be a lot easier. If you’re going through the islands in order of the story progression, here’s what they are

  • Deniz – It has the Water and Wind Type Temtems.
  • Omninesia – The island has Fire and Nature Temtems.
  • Tucma – At Tuckman, you’ll come across Crystal and Toxic Temtem types.
  • Kisiwa – You’ll find Earth and Neutral types here.
  • Cipanku  – Here you can find Electric and Digital Temtems.
  • Arbury – Mental and Melee-type Temtems are found here.

Go In Adventures With Friends

Did you know you can play the entire Temtem campaign in cooperative mode with friends? Enjoy cross-play across PS5, Nintendo, Xbox, and PC.

Communicate through chat and emotes, and access a friends list for trading, inspecting, and spectating. Join clubs and engage in Dojo Wars to control a Dojo with your friends.

The World Of Archipelago To Explore

The world of the Archipelago is huge. If you decide to stick with the campaign part of the story, then it’s totally fine. It is filled with an interesting story of Temtem. But we’d advise you to venture off from the beaten path and give a try to the new undiscovered areas. That’s where the real fun is. 

If you’re interested in the lore then exploration is the best path to take. Also, visiting those different regions will help you complete Kudos (the name of Achievements in Temtem).

To make the exploration of the huge world easier, the game allows you to unlock a Mount when you reach Arbury. It makes exploring the Archipelago’s world easier. With your mount, get onto exploring it. You’ll find several secrets, easter eggs, and many more. But for that, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled open.

Training Courses

If you properly explore the World of Archipelago, you’ll come across what is known as Training Courses. They all provide specific moves for your Temtems to learn. If the Temtem can learn it, then they can use infinite times. It isn’t something revolutionary, as Pokemon has the same concept. But there, they are known as TM.

To get training courses, you’ll have to go through any and all of the branching paths that you come across. Search each of them thoroughly, and you’ll easily find them all.

Look For Lumas

Although Lumas is a part of the late game of Temtem, we feel that you should know about them early on. For all Tamers in Temtem, Lumas are the ‘Ultimate Goal’. They are the Different colored versions of Tems that have at least three perfect stats.

Lumas are rare, but with these strategies, you can increase your chances early in the game.

  1. Radars in Tamer’s Paradise: Obtain Radars on the Endgame Island for 300 encounters with a species, improving SVs and increasing Luma chances.
  2. Saipark on Deniz Island: Weekly features of high-stat Tems in Saipark may lead to encountering a Luma. Regular visits increase your chances.
  3. Luma Fertility: Once you have a Luma, use Luma Fertility to create eggs. The chances of hatching a Luma increase significantly.
  4. The Lair Challenge: Complete ‘The Lair’ challenge in Tamer’s Paradise to obtain eggs from a chosen Temtem with a higher chance of hatching a Luma.

While you can choose any method, trying all increase your odds. Remember, getting a Luma in Temtem involves some luck!

Expressing Yourself Using Different Methods

The next one isn’t one of the Tips and tricks, but this feature of Temtem made us include it in our list. So, here’s what it is.

When it comes to Temtem, players get endless customization options. What it means is that when the player builds their character, they will have all the options to express themselves to their fellow players. Personalization includes choosing the preferred body type, different walking animations, clothes options (that can be dyed multiple times), and Pronouns.

The game lets you make your own House in the world of Temtem. If you complete the Housing quest, then you’ll get your own house in Atoll Row. Once you get it, the game will allow you to decorate it using different items.


When you finish the campaign of the game, you might wonder if the game ends here. But that’s not true, and it is just the beginning of the game. After the story ends, you’ll have tons of features waiting for you. There are repeatable and challenging activities like the Archtamers and Dojo challenges. 

Or, if you want to play with friends, there are co-op-friendly adventures such as the Digital Lairs and the Mythical Lairs. And when you get to the last Island in the world of Archipelago, that is the Tamer’s Paradise. There you’ll find different modes that will put you to the test. They are the best way to check your skills and brain.

Temtem has a vast world that you will have to explore. In this world, there are tons of things to do. Some will be worth everything, whereas others will be for the 100% completion players. Whichever type of player you are, these tips and tricks will surely help your adventures in Temtem.
