The most important thing that I can tell you is
Summoning is all about chance!!
This mean even if you’re using the right formula, you may not get the result that you want.
The pet on this game has “hidden” value of rarity. This mean you will get some creatures more frequently compared the others.
Example (It can be applied on the other pets too):
There are 3 pets which have Fire-Forest Element, they’re Flower Frillzard, Wild wolf and Rose Fox. If you summon Fire Cat + Forest lizard, the result may become like this
7 = Rose Fox
2 = Wild Wolf
1 or even 0 = flower frillzard
Why this could happen? This happens because Flower Frillzard is super rare pet. There is nothing wrong with your summoning formula.
Tips: it’s kinda playing roulette, you can’t force certain numbers to come out, right ? That’s why I suggest you not to spend gems on the summoning process. Save them for another use (such as buy premium pet).
To boost the chance of your summoning you can do 2 things
The first thing you can do is to use hybrid pets (or rarer) creatures. This mean you use Rose Fox + Fire Cat/Forest Lizard, in order to get Wild wolf. From my experience, it generates rarer pets than the normal formula (“basic” element creature + “basic” element creature; on this example, the basic element pets are fire cat and forest lizard, they only have one element).
The second thing you can do is to use higher level pets. According to kung fu pets facebook post(I forgot the exact link), you should try to use lvl 16 creature and above to have a better chance of obtaining rarer pets.
The last thing you can do is to use “higher” level summoning altar.
Your first altar is called summoning altar. This altar is not very good because from my experience it’s really hard to get rare creatures from the altar (it’s possible though).
Your second altar is Dragon altar !!! It’s only offered on the first 3 days when you start playing the game. I suggest you to purchase this one (1650 gems, you also get mini-me dragon and other minor stuff as a bonus). From my experience, I start to get rarer creatures when using this altar.
ATTENTION: On the new version (version 1.2.1 on IOS), you can buy the Dragon Altar on the shop like magic altar, for 6500 gems)
Your third altar is Magic Altar. It can be purchased on the shop for 2250 gems. From my experience, it’s same like the dragon altar. So make sure you buy this one (especially if you have missed the dragon altar before).
Tips: After buying those altars, don’t expect you will get universe dragon on the 1st try … Remember that SUMMONING IS ALL ABOUT CHANCE. The altar only BOOST the chance NOT GUARANTEE the result.
The 4th altar is Dr. Pou’s Altar. It’s a little bit different from other altars, visit THIS PAGE for more info about it.
That’s all, if you have any more questions please ask, I will happily answer that questions :).
