Please note, I believe this question is specific to the Android/iOS implementation of Dragon Quest VIII.
Within the game on the world map, you discover monsters running around on the map. These monsters, when encountered are essentially mini-bosses that give additional money, XP and items. It's my understanding that in the original PS2 version of the game, all monsters (or many of the monsters) in the game were encountered by running into an enemy on the map, so finding these "Special Monsters" were either not part of that version OR they happened randomly, although very infrequently.
I've found 5 of them so far but I'm only half way through the game. Has anyone acquired a list of all of these special monsters and knows where they are each located?
I've searched and searched and I can't find any special information on these monsters.
