Beginner developments in any monster collecting game make for a tough choice. Which creature players choose first will set the tone for the rest of the gameplay, and can make the game more challenging early or later depending on the types of battles coming up. While it’s always best to follow your gut instinct so users can truly immerse themselves in the world, it never hurts to see what a novice creature can turn into. This guide explains what all evolutions are for each Nexomon: Extinction stater, so players can know they’ve made the best choice.

All beginner evolutions in Nexomon: Extinction rated from best to worst
Below, we’ve listed every novice gamer can get into Nexomon: Extinction and ranked them from best at the top to worst at the bottom. Those at the bottom of the list aren’t necessarily bad, they just aren’t as great to play as those ranked higher in our view. We’ve also listed every evolution for each start so players can see what they end up with which little creature they have to choose at the start of the game.
Lume Evolutions – Fire type
We’ve said before that Lume is probably the best of all the newbies in the game, and his future forms are no different. At level 17, he becomes Lume Lumefur, who has an average attack stat of 23. For any teen level Nexomon, that’s pretty cool already – but it doesn’t stop there. Once he reaches level 34, he will become the Lumerei Brilliant, with an attack stat of 32 and a defense stat of 27.
Noki Evolutions – Water type
Yes, Noki has a reputation for being one of the weakest starters, but it’s probably one of the best. Despite his evolving forms, Vainok and Hainok turn baby Nexomon from cute to badass – and his stats show that, too. You can get Hainok at level 36, where the starting stats are 33 HP, 30 attack, 28 defense, and 10 speed. Ultimately, Noki isn’t a bad choice for gamers willing to wait.
Jikoku Evolutions – Electric Type
We think running with Gekoko is a lot like running with Noki. Handling his first form is also a burden, but Kamelevo and his evolved final form Reptomotor demonstrate that hard work pays off. Kamelevo is a well-balanced second form, with 22 HP, 21 Attack, and 18 Defense. The Reptomotor is also excellently designed and built with 37 HP, 30 Attacks and 28 Defenses when developed.
Bhilda Evolutions – Stealth type
In terms of design, we’re convinced that the Behilda has the most promise. Looking more intimidating than her former self, Heddeca is tougher. However, Noocidal deserves the biggest highlight, as the final form looks familiar to that of a Legendary Pokémon. It’s not the toughest finisher out there, but the 37hp after evolution is really enticing.
Mara Evolutions – type of plant
It’s extremely rare for great plant types to be found in Nexomon: Extinction, which is ironic since that’s what Mara and her evolved forms are classified as. Furthermore, their rarity may depend solely on their appearance, as their abilities are no better than those of others on this list. If you have a problem against water types, you might consider Marasuma or Raksuma in these tough spots.
Masquiti Evolutions – Psychic type
We know Masquiti is almost too scary, but as a spirit beast, you shouldn’t be too shocked. The Masquiti’s well-developed shapes make the unfriendly starter a good choice. At level 17, he transforms into Masqat, which has a decent set of stats. But at level 34, players will see him transform into Feliblandqo, which is a taller, stronger, and less creepy version of what you’re used to.
Merne developments – wind type
Mearn and his forms equal a rare adorable plush animal. It doesn’t do much, but at least you can say you have it. Cat lovers will adore this starter as its sophisticated motifs, Felarnia and Yarnesty, bring their own personalities to your party. However, there are a lot of Mearns to pick up in Drake Isles, so casting a starting user might not be the best option.
Trebly Evolutions – Metal Genre
Gamers really can’t go wrong with the rare choice of having a metal type launcher. It makes it even better when considering that Nexomon is the second best of the nine starters. Trebly’s evolved forms, Treclay and Tresaur, are known for having some of the highest HP stats in the game. Moreover, it is amazing to see the little reptile transform into such a terrifying giant.
Denja twist – normal type
It’s down there for a reason: We hoped players wouldn’t come this far and see it. As dogs, we made the mistake of choosing this friendly, passive mutt. Now, no one is saying that Dichala and Namansi are not terribly evolved forms, but as a normal Nexomon type, they are never really effective in battle. This may amount to a lot of pent-up frustration, but if those willing to go through with it are going to need to give Dinja all your cores of destruction.
