Poogie is an NPC in Monster Hunter World (MHW). NPCs are non-playable characters that interact
with the Hunter during the story or optional activities in game.
Poogie is a little pig wandering around in Astera, it is possible for the player to befriend it and get rewards.
- Can be found wandering around the ground level of Astera.
The player can pet Poogie, this works like the cooking mini-game where you need to press a certain button at the right time.
Near the end of the melody, a big red exclamation mark will appear above Poogie, this is when you have to press the button.
If successful, hearts will appear around a happy Poogie, if not, Poogie will kick the player and run back to its house,
respawning after the next quest.
Petting Poogie regularly will open new interactions with it, and at some point will create a bond with the player.
The heart and reaction from Poogie will be a lot more expressive.
- Pick up
- Change Clothes
- Edit Name
At this point, only once between each quest, if the player can get Poogie to jump with a big heart, he can then pick it up, and walk around with it. Walking through certain places in Astera will make Poogie and the controller vibrate, signaling the player of a nearby hidden item. If you put Poogie down, it will look for it and give it to you.
Most of the hidden items spots only grant materials, but a few give new costume for Poogie.
