      I'm on the ??? rathian quest now, I'm assuming this is the monster for that quest. Any recommendations before going in? Or can I just treat it like a slightly harder rathian?

        Pink Rathian's guild card titles at 20-30-40 Hunts are "Cherry Blossom", "Valkyrie", "Queen". I haven't hit 50 hunts yet. Normal HR P.Rathian the tail is fairly easy to sever with the 30 Slicing ammo without Partbreaker. Tempered though, better bring a full stack of Slashberries to make more ammo. Eventually I just gave up on tail severing and told my palico to just deal with it.

          When people complain about some monster that i thought was easy and they think it was IMPOSSIBLE to beat and then ramble om about how easy THE PINK RATHIAN is (which i think is hard) i feel like i am doing something wrong

            One thing I've found interesting is that after I captured it it showed up on the capture deck like usual. However, after capturing multiple other monsters the Pink Rathian is still there. The Rathian isn't even animated anymore, it's not moving. It just sits there and I can't see any other monsters I've captured.

              Yeah, i would say the same if it wasn't baiting every betalgeuse and deviljo there is. It runs way too much.

                I play Insect Glaive, nothing in this game is difficult for me. Except Anjanath. He can knock me out of the air. He scares me.

                  I came in unprepared, but still soloed her. She is very telegraphed in her attacks. Just take the tail and it's over.

                    If you find this things damage op. Drink mega armorskin. It lasts till you faint. Meals also. Element resist up. Or defense up. Will stack w armorskin. A max potion/having 150 hp helps. Farm high rank odogaron or rath gear. Good fire and physical defense, if it's expedition, you have unlimited lives.

                      when i was searching through the sos flares list all that came up on the assignments quests where the same one for the pink rathian. i dont know if they were having trouble fighting it or if that is where most people are in the game but when i battled it i won first try. It confused me so much.
