The world of Temtem has opened a new location in its latest patch that should be pretty enticing to those who are at the top end and seeking the right critters for their team. Introducing the Saipark, a new natural preserve on the game’s archipelago and the headline feature of version 0.5.12.
The Saipark will have two different species of Temtem each week, both with increased chances of being Luma (rare color variants of an existing critter, or “shinies” in Pokemon parlance), having egg moves, or having guaranteed minimum SVs. Capturing the monsters in this particular area can’t be done with regular Temcards, but only with special Saicards. Players who pay the fee to enter the Saipark are given a pack of these Saicards by default. This fee and the number of Saicards granted will be changing every week based on rarity of the Tems in the preserve. More Saicards can be purchased, but the fee to do so will increase each time. Additionally, Saicards will only be good during the week, with the weekly resent happening every Monday.
There are plans to include an in-game way of tracking what Tems are in the Saipark and how much time is left in the week, but for now players are encouraged to follow Temtem on social media for the latest updates. This week, for the record, the Saipark is housing Barnshes and Ocearas.
The update has made a number of other adjustments too, like unified animations for stat changes, a laundry list of fixes, and an overall reduction in Luma rate from 1 in 6000 to 1 in 8000. This, effectively, means the Saipark is going to become even more important to those who are shiny hunting, but the devs at Crema Games promise that there will be a way for players to actively hunt for Luma Tems and increase those chances in the future.
