Monster Clutch is basically five eggs flying in the hair with mouths and eyes. Yes, it looks really weird.
Monster Clutch is one of these monsters that looks really good on paper, but it just really isn't. First of, it got amazing stats, along the best stats in the game easily. And his trait is Hardened, which isn't bad. He is also Magic-type, one of the best types to use in general, so what is wrong with him? Simple: his movepool sucks! His movepool is so freaking horrible, I don't even know why. This monster looks freaking amazing and the worst part is that he is hard to get, very few people actually got Monster Clutch. But this monster sucks so bad! His moves are complete garbage! The only thing that prevented him to go any lower from the C+ rank are his god-like stats. Other than that, he sucks! Sadly, stats aren't everything and this monster is the perfect example.
- Monster Clutch got extremely good stats
- A good part of his moves have little to no cooldown
- His movepool completely suck
- Most of status effects (that aren't even good to be begin with) have only 50% of happening, like are you kidding me?
- The Hardened trait isn't bad by any means, but now that we got Tough and even Bulwark, Hardened kinda suck these days
Rage of the eggs
- Egg Detonation
- Mega Bites
- Easter Disaster
- Easter Master
- 3 Power Runes
Monster Clutch will only be able to deal damage for the most part, so focus on that for the runes. Egg Detonation has 50% (oh god why only 50%?) of stunning, so...you can always try. Mega Bites delays recharge as it gives you more energy than using the move. Easter Disaster is probably your best move as it gives damage reduction to all foes and it is his only status with 100% chance! It also got no cooldown, so yeah, the only really good move in his moveset. Easter Master might give blind (50%...again) to all foes and got no cooldown either, so it's OK as a move. As you can see, nothing really amazing, but you will do damage.
Being a Magic-type, Monster Clutch has the advantage of being weak to Nature as this type really sucks offensively. So the best way to counter it is to...well just damage it as it isn't really Dangerous to begin with. But I guess you can stun/freeze/possess him to help you out. There's plenty of monsters able to stop him so this monster shouldn't really be a treat.
