|“||There's no greater living proof of "you are what you eat" than the Rare PomPom. Although sometimes confused for a separate monster entirely, like the Hoola, this Rare is actually just a common PomPom on a diet consisting entirely of indigo foods! The change isn't just reflected in its appearance, though - Rare PomPoms develop a heightened fashion sense, and coif their plumes in radical styles - with some blue highlights for good measure.||”|
The Rare PomPom's appearance is somewhat similar to the more common variety. The differences between them are:
- An indigo body, said to be the result of its diet
- Spiky hair with blue highlights
- Black and white striped arms, legs, and toes
- And a lovely butterfly adornment
The Rare PomPom's song is identical to the standard variety: 'Yippitie Yay, Yippitie Yo' on Earth Island, 'Hey Nana, Hey Nana, Hey Nana, Hey Na, Hey, Low' on Air Island.
The Rare PomPom can only be bred during a special weekend. Its parentage is identical to the normal PomPom's. As such, it can be bred with any combination of Air, Earth, and Cold. Possible combinations are:
Any kind of breeding attempt which includes a regular PomPom may fail, and give a Rare PomPom as a result instead of the regular PomPom. This includes all of the breeding combinations that can't ever work in the usual way. If you're trying to get a Rare PomPom as a result of breeding failure, the most effective combination is to breed a regular PomPom with a 4-element monster, since the offspring will always be a PomPom except in the rare case that an Ethereal monster is the result. (This assumes that the probability of getting a Rare PomPom instead of a regular PomPom doesn't depend on which monsters are used for breeding.)
Another good strategy is to breed the Common monster with a single-element monster, as single-elements take the least time to hatch.
The Rare version of any breeding monster can be used instead of the common version.
On Shugabush Island, the Rare PomPom can be purchased with diamonds, bred with Shugabush and PomPom, or teleported from any other island it is found on once it reaches level 15.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned. The food per level is the same for all triple element monsters and can be found in this article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster (if not using a Unity Tree), the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Rare PomPom:
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
Some items to take into consideration when designing your island by strategy are number of beds for the monster, rate of income per bed, max income per bed, and time for max income to be reached. The income below is for level 15:
|Number of Beds||3|
|Rate of Income High||240|
|Rate of Income Low||120|
|Rate of Income per Bed High||80|
|Rate of Income per Bed Low||40|
|Max Income per Bed||14,400|
|Time to Max Income @ High||3 hours|
|Time to Max Income @ Low||6 hours|
The name origin is most likely the same as the standard PomPom, referencing the pompoms that it holds in its hands.
