With the release of Digimon Survive, players can now dive into a digital world that features over 100 Digimon to befriend and take into battle with them. But the process of befriending and gaining new Digimon to have at your side is quite different from what we are used to and might leave players confused as to how to go about it. 

So below we will be walking you through how to befriend a new Digimon in Digimon Survive. And give you some tips and tricks you'll need to befriend the ones you want and build your ideal team of digital monsters.

New Digimon that the player can befriend will become available from the end of Part 1 of the game, and the process involves the player partaking in free battles. More of these free battles are added throughout the game from the end of Part 1 and give you more chances to find new Digimon as you progress through the game and discover its mysteries.

Once you find a new Digimon you want to befriend, you need to start a conversation with the Digimon by hitting the "Talk" button, and scrolling through the list of foes, then clicking on the Digimon's name. Once you initiate the conversation, you will be faced with a set of three questions that you need to answer. 

Each of the questions will give you a list of four responses that you can choose from, and it's up to you to choose the best one. Answering these questions will fill up a bar above the Digimon, with the best answer filling it by two segments, the second best filling one segment, the third best not changing the adding to the bar, and the worst answer causing you to lose a segment.

If the player has three or more segments by the end of the conversation, you will then be able to invite the Digimon to become your friend, or you'll be able to ask it for an item. However, the chance of the Digimon accepting your request depends on a few factors even if you manage to pass the questions. 

Each Digimon will accept your request based on a percentage that is calculated based on the levels of the Digimon in your party, and the Digimon that you're trying to befriend. So unlike other games such as Pokemon where your chances increase depending on the HP (health points) of the Pokemon, in Digimon, there are a few more aspects you need to keep in mind.

Lastly, you will just need to ensure that your answers match the personality and general tone of the Digimons questions to give yourself the best chance of befriending it. But you do always have the option of restarting the battle or reloading a save until the Digimon accepts your request, though this can be a tedious process thanks to the game's long loading times.
