Cryptozoologist Question
Do you have to get this in one play through or can you get it over multiple runs, cause I noticed that the monster book stays the same for all playthroughs

You can get it over multiple runs, and it doesn't even lose records when you die.

The two you have to watch out for are the flamethrower gatekeepers at the very end of Guilty Fire, and the ridiculous bugs you have to kill to charge the Evil Ring, because those are the only places they appear and they don't ever respawn after you advance. To grind their entries, kill two of them and then either exit/reenter the room or die. The latter is actually faster for the Guilty Fire ones, because you respawn in the same room.

If you slip up and a stray charged attack kills all three, just die. As long as you don't touch a statue and make their deaths "stick", they'll still be there when you get back.

awesome thanks, also how many time do you have to kill them to get it?

Enough to make you very sick of them. :P

Also, do the Silent Sands ones with Yunica, because she kills them much faster.
