Overview

Silver Rathalos

The Monster Hunter franchise is best known for its similarities to Phantasy Star Online and insane popularity in Japan. It is an action-RPG that involves character growth by gaining better armor and equipment. The main goal of the game is to increase your hunter rank by completing quests. In the quests you will also get loot from dead monsters like bones and claws to make better weapons and armor. Monster Hunter has 3 Generations of monster designs. 1st Gen appears in Monster Hunter and Monster Hunter Freedom, 2nd Gen appears in Monster Hunter 2, Monster Hunter Freedom 2 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and the 3rd Gen appears in Monster Hunter Tri, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Some Monsters also have a subspecies like the Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian.
