In Digimon Survive, how do you get Numemon? ...

Numemon is one of the first monsters you'll encounter as you play the Digimon Survives game. Even better, it's a Champion Digimon, which is one evolution level higher than the Rookie Digimon you're likely to know before this point.

How to befriend Numemon

Numemons negotiation is a game mechanic, and youll need to do it during a battle. The first opportunity to do this is in Chapter 2, outside the school. Numemon is unable to speak, but instead communicates through body language. Your aim is to reply in ways that make Numemon feel at ease, which in this case involves being gentle but firm.
