Poogie is the pet mascot of the Monster Hunter series and he makes a massive comeback in Monster Hunter: World. In this game, carrying him around proves to be extremely useful – and that’s exactly what we’re here to talk about! A complete guide to Poogie in Monster Hunter World!
Therefore, in this article, we’re going to share with you where to find Poogie, how to make him love you and and what costumes you can find for Poogie. We’re also including additional info that might be useful… so read on, because there’s more about this pig than first meets the eye!
Where to find Poogie in Monster Hunter: World
If in other games in the series, the pig was instantly available, now you have to do a bit of searching. Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to find it here either: all you have to do is go to the first floor of Astera and you’ll see the pig near the supply vendor.
How to make Poogie like you
Just finding it doesn’t really help you much. You have to make the pig like you and it’s not that easy (not too difficult either, though). All you have to do is to successfully complete the petting minigame by pressing the button at the right time, when the red exclamation mark appears on the screen.
If you succeed, Poogie will like you and little hearts will appear over its head. If you fail, Poogie will bash you and run to its place and won’t be available until the next quest.
And since he is actually useful, giving you some extra options when it comes to items you can find when having him as a companion, as well as (apparently) better luck at crafting rare items, it’s worth paying attention to your pig-friend and pet him as you should.
