I haven't updated this at all. I'm sorry about that.
So, after the mammoth bird herd the hunters would stumble upon the Kraken. The Kraken was going to be a harder fight as I was going to make it somewhat painful. It would be captured in Stage 2. I also wanted to try and play up Rival's ability to communicate with the monsters if possible, which would go negatively. Likewise, it would make some attempt at "Communication" with Chi-Chi. Kraken would pack a huge punch and be terrible to nail down in order to kill, but I have no doubt it would have been done, and possibly utilizing Rival, Chi-Chi, and Stoic the beast could be lulled into a false sense of security. I wanted the Kraken to evolve to stage 3 right inside the dome as well, and take out one of the Nomads.
