Mighty Morphin Griffin Rangers 101: PowerCon Command Centre & Tyrannosaurus DinoZord

Addicts to the Command Centre!!! Addicts to the Command Centre!!!

There’s something monstrous going on in Quahog, and in order to take control of it you’ll need to head to your PowerCon Command Centre.


For more information on the Event, go HERE


WHAT THE HECK IS THE POWERCON COMMAND CENTRE? 

 

The PowerCon Command Centre is where you will use this phases Red Zeo SubCrystals you’ve been collecting from clearing Red Ranger Cosplayers. You will use them here to energize Zords.


WHERE DO I FIND IT AND WHEN DO I START USING THE POWERCON COMMAND CENTRE IN MY GAME?

You will find PowerCon Command Centre in the middle of your event area, it looks like this.

You will be directed to it when you reach Pt. 4 of the main Questline The Family That Cosplays Together. At that point you will be instructed to Learn about Zords.  I will take more about the Tyrannosaurus DinoZord later in this post.


WHAT IS THE POWERCON COMMAND CENTRE USED FOR IN MY GAME?

The PowerCon Command Centre is where you go to see what Zords are available, the cost to energize a Zord and of what characters you can combine with a Zord to increase the Zords energy. Simple huh? It really sounds more complex than it is, once you’ve done it once or twice you’ll wonder what all the panic was about.

 

 

 


WHAT THE HECK ARE ZORDS?

They are Mecha, or in layman terms, robotic dinosaurs, and they will help you gather resources by doing tasks and attacking the Earth Kaiju.

The Zord you will use in this initial phase of the event is the Tyrannosaurus DinoZord.


WHAT RESOURCES DO I NEED TO COMBINE (ENERGIZE) MY TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD? 

This is pretty simple, you need Red Zeo SubCrystals. You can get these from Chris Laugh Off Red Ranger Cosplayers OR Rita Repulsa Attack Red Ranger Cosplayers OR Purchase From The Store


HOW DO I COMBINE (ENERGIZE) TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD?

You need to tap on the PowerCon Command Centre in the Event Area, this will bring you up the command screen, here you will see the Tyrannosaurus DinoZord, (referred to as the T. Zord in the screen menu), is available.

Tap on the T. Zord box and you will see the cost to Combine (Energize) him is 3 Red Zeo SubCrystals and his Energy strength will be 3.

If you have 3 Red Zeo SubCrystals available simply Tap Combine and you will see the following box pop up. ***Please note you d not have to have unlocked Red Ranger Peter or the Red Ranger to use your Tyrannosaurus DinoZord. They are simply used to create a stronger version – more on this later***

Tap Yes to confirm and your Tyrannosaurus DinoZord will wander from the event area into your town.

Tapping on him will bring up a task screen similar to that of our game characters, however as well as showing his tasks, it will also show his total energy and in the task the total energy needed to complete the task. Now when you first Combine your Tyrannosaurus DinoZord to complete Part 4 of the main Questline you will notice he only has the 2 tasks seen below.

However once you reach Part 6 of the main Questline and learn about Kaiju, you will see he gains more tasks and will have a total of 5, I will of course explain more about Kaiju in a separate post. But for now be aware this is why you will see the following extra 3 Attack tasks appearing.


HOW DO I COMBINE TO MAKE A STRONGER TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD?

Basically this is where Red Ranger Peter and the Red Ranger come into play, but ONLY once you’ve unlocked them.

If you select the T-Zord alone, he’s at energy level 3, however add Red Ranger Peter OR/AND the Red Ranger and you will create a stronger T-Zord for the same 3 Red Zeo SubCrystals as using the T-Zord on his own. Yes that’s right, it doesn’t cost a higher amount of Red Zeo SubCrystals to create a stronger T-Zord.

Red Ranger Peter adds 3 energy points to your T-Zord and the Red Ranger adds 4. Add both and you’re adding at total of 7 energy points to your T-Zord.

In order to do this, you simply need to select your T-Zord, then choose the character to add to the combination from the PowerCon Command Centre. For example if you select Red Ranger Peter, you will see a check mark in his box and the T-Zord strength will now show as 6.

And if you’ve unlocked the Red Ranger, you can select both, and you will see the T.Zord energy rise to 10.

Then tap Combine and agree to spending the 3 Red Zeo SubCrystals to release the stronger Tyrannosaurus DinoZord into your game. You can then do tasks until his energy is fully depleted. We’ll talk more about what happens once your Tyrannosaurus energy is depleted a little bit later.


WHAT TASKS DOES TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD HAVE AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?

When you reach Part 6 of the main Questline you will have unlocked all your Tyrannosaurs DinoZord’s tasks, 2 are just general tasks with drops, these are:

And 3 are tasks used to Attack the Earth Kaiju, and these are:


WHAT REWARDS DO I GET? 

Well this depends on the task you use. The drops for the various tasks are as follows:

Task:  Roar Uncontrollably
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
  1 T Power Morpher  (Chance)
 1 Power Medal (Always)

 

Task:  Walk Around Carefully
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
  1 White Boots (Chance)
 3 Power Medal (Always)

 

Task:  Atrack Earth Kaiju – Damage 2 
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Earth Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Green Souvenir Cups – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Earth Kaiju you defeat.

 

Task:  Atrack Earth Kaiju – Damage 6
 3 Power Coin Pin (Always)
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Earth Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Green Souvenir Cups – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Earth Kaiju you defeat.

 

Task:  Attack Earth Kaiju – Damage 8
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Earth Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Green Souvenir Cups – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Earth Kaiju you defeat.

I will break down all the Earth Kaiju levels and rewards in the 101 post on this topic. It will be up later today hopefully.


DECOMBINING THE TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD?

Once your Tyrannosaurus DinoZord is out of Energy, he will not be able to do any further tasks, you will know he’s out of energy as he will stand static and have a no energy sign above his head like this.

If you tap on him you will get a message telling you the Zord is out of energy and giving you the option to Decombine him, just tap Yes to do this. (Alternatively you can Decombine him in the PowerCon Command Centre).

Once you’ve done this the T.Zord will be once again be available to select in the PowerCon Command Centre.

***Please note some players are experiencing crashing issues when they attempt to Decombine their Zord, TinyCo have been made aware of this, but if you’re having this issue I recommend you send TinyCo an in-game support message***


There you have it, all the facts about the PowerCon Command Centre and the Tyrannosaurus DinoZord. What are your thoughts? Have you started to combine any yet? If so, are you enjoying this addition to our games? Any other tips for fellow Players? Let us know.

  1. When I use red ranger peter to form a zord as a part of the quest required (All About Zords pt 1). It isn’t recognizing that i did it. Is this a bug or am i doing something wrong?

    I accidentally combined Peter and Red Ranger. Still have 10 energy and the Kayui is 4 hours out till he’s back. I would like to send Peter on a quest. What happens when I decombine? Do I lose all 10 energy and or my 3 red crystals? Thanks

  3. Oh ***! Once again, the Addicts site explains something that, to me, is not adequately explained by the game itself. I thought, by looking at the game, that one had to have either the Red Ranger or Peter’s Red Ranger costume to create a Zord. Sigh. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Unfortunately, I, too, am having the problem that decombining the Zord after its first quest freezes my game, and uninstalling and reinstalling is NOT helping. I’ve contacted TinyCo.

    • ‘re: not needing Peter. I’ve been waiting DAYS to earn Peter not realizing I could have advanced quicker by creating wimpy words while gathering materials for Peter. Fml

  4. So which attack is best to maximize Green Souvenir Cup drops? 2x damage (multiple attempts) or 6x damage (1 shot)?

    Like

    • You get set amount for the Defeat, not for individual stacks, so the Damage task you choose depends on how much Damage you need to do at the heart level Earth Kaiju is at. For example if you were attacking the 5 Heart Level Earth Kaiju, you would choose the 6 Damage if you can, as you will defeat the Earth Kaiju in one attack costing 6 energy, getting you 4 Green Souvenir Cups. If you chose the 2 Damage you would need to attack 3 times costing a total of 9 energy, and you’d still just get the 4 Green Souvenir Cups. Full post with all the drops will be up later.

  5. Don’t like that when you attack kayui it takes power of 3. then you are left with 3 (if combined with peter) but it doesn’t let you attack again even though I have power of 3 left and with red crystals hard to collect it seems a cop out

    • I’m not sure why it won’t let you do a 2 Damage attack if you have the 3 energy available – have you tried through the attack box? If problem persists please send a message to TinyCo support.

  6. I have completed all of the tasks with the T Rex. Should I just save up the red subcrystals or keep in sending him on tasks to earn Power Coin Pins?

    Like

    • I’m saving up the Red Zeo SubCrystals until I unlock the Red Ranger, hopefully tomorrow, then I’m going attack Earth Kaiju with stronger Tyrannosaurus DinoZord, however if I see I won’t get the Red Ranger unlocked tomorrow, I may just start attacking him again to build up some resources before Phase 2 hits, probably on Wednesday.

  7. I was having the crashing issue with iOS when attempting to make my Zoe’s for the first time. I contacted TinyCo and they suggested force restarting the app (double tap home and swipe up on all apps, then restart the phone). However, this didn’t help

    I tired nuking my town which also didn’t help but as my town was pretty full it might help with other crashing issues I was having, particularly when placing new buildings

    What did finally help was to delete the game and reinstall it. If you’re going to do that, make sure your game is linked to Facebook and saved so you can recover it when you reinstall

    Now I can progress with the event – hopefully I’m not too far behind!
