One of Dragon Quest: Legacy of the Lost's most exciting features is its Breeding System. Certain actions in the game will make it possible to recruit monsters to join your team.

Specifically, how does this all work?
Through various missions and sidequests throughout the game, you will be able to recruit monsters.

There is a total of 106 possible monsters, with 9 of them being exclusive to Dragon Quest: Legacy of the Lost.

The Breeding Center is the most exciting aspect of monster breeding. When you begin breeding, you select a monster to serve as the base pedigree. The base monster will determine the result. For example, if you breed a Dragonkid and a Spooky, you would get a Poisongon. If you had chosen Spooky as the base, you would get a MadSpirit. To breed, a monster must at least be Level 15. The parent monsters will be lost upon breeding. In addition to receiving the offspring, When you breed a monster, you receive Skill Essences. Skill essences are a way of passing on skills to another monster. You will be given the opportunity to pass on the skills the monster is capable of learning. Essenced skills are not passed, however. Skill Essences will come with a stat requirement and are only useable by monsters.
