Mighty Morphin Griffin Rangers 101: Pterodactyl DinoZord

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

There’s more monstrous going-ons in Quahog, and in order to take control of the Pterodactyl DinoZord you’ll need to head to your PowerCon Command Centre.


For more information on the Event, go HERE


WHAT THE HECK IS A PTERDOACTYL DINOZORD?

Well basically it’s just another robotic dinosaur that will help you gather resources by doing tasks and attacking the Flame Kaiju.


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

You need Pink Zeo SubCrystals. You can get these from Red Ranger Peter Pose For Pink Ranger Cosplayers OR Rita Repulsa Stewie Stun Pink Ranger Cosplayers OR Purchase From The Store


HOW DO I COMBINE (ENERGIZE) THE PTERODACTYL 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 Pterodactyl DinoZord, (referred to as the P. DinoZord in the screen menu), is the 2nd Zord available.

Tap on the P. DinoZord box and you will see the cost to Combine (Energize) him is 2 Pink Zeo SubCrystals and his Energy strength will be 3.

If you have 2 Pink Zeo SubCrystals available simply Tap Combine and you will see the following box pop up. ***Please note you don’t neec to have unlocked Pink Ranger Lois or the have Alpha 5 to use your Pterodactyl DinoZord. They are simply used to create a stronger version – more on this later***

Tap Yes to confirm and your 4 Energy Pterodactyl DinoZord will fly 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.  He has 2 general tasks, these:

And the following extra 3 Flame Kaiju Attack tasks, which are these:


HOW DO I COMBINE TO MAKE A STRONGER TYRANNOSAURUS DINOZORD?

Basically this is where Pink Ranger Lois and the Alpha 5 (premium)  come into play, but ONLY once you’ve unlocked Pink Ranger Lois or bought Alpha 5.

If you select the P-DinoZord alone, he’s at energy level 4, however add Pink Ranger Lois OR/AND the Alpha 5 and you will create a stronger P-DinoZord for the same 2 Pink Zeo SubCrystals as using the P-DinoZord on his own. Yes that’s right, it doesn’t cost a higher amount of Pink Zeo SubCrystals to create a stronger P-DinoZord.

Pink Ranger Lois adds 6 energy points to your P-DinoZord and Alpha 5 adds 8. Add both and you’re adding a total of 14 energy points to your P-DinoZord.

In order to do this, you simply need to select your P-DinoZord, then choose the character to add to the combination from the PowerCon Command Centre. For example if you select Pink Ranger Lois, you will see a check mark in her box and the P-DinoZord strength will now show as 10.

And if you’ve purchased the premium Alpha 5, you can select both, and you will see the P.DinoZord energy rise to 18.

Then tap Combine and agree to spending the 2 Pink Zeo SubCrystals to release the stronger Pterodactyl DinoZord into your game. You can then do tasks until his energy is fully depleted. We’ll talk more about what happens once your Pterodactyl energy is depleted a little bit later.


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

There are two  general tasks with drops, these are:

And 3 are tasks used to Attack the Flame 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:  Find A Place To Nest
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
 3 Power Medal (Always)

 

Task:  Soar Through The City
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always)
 3 Power Medal (Always)

 

Task:  Attack Flame Kaiju – Damage 2 
 1 Power Coin Pin (Always) &  3 Leaderboard Medals
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Flame Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Red Shirts – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Flame Kaiju you defeat. And remembers the Red Shirts are a Rare drop.

 

Task:  Attack Flame Kaiju – Damage 3 
 3 Power Coin Pin (Always) &  7 Leaderboard Medals
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Flame Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Red Shirts – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Flame Kaiju you defeat. And remembers the Red Shirts are a Rare drop.

 

Task:  Attack Flame Kaiju – Damage 5
 5 Power Coin Pin (Always) &  12 Leaderboard Medals
This is just the completed task payout, if you fully defeat the Flame Kaiju you will also get drops of Leaderboard Medals and Red Shirts – the amount you get will depend on the level of the Flame Kaiju you defeat. And remembers the Red Shirts are a Rare drop.

I will break down all the Flame Kaiju levels and rewards in the 101 post on this topic.


DECOMBINING THE PTERDOACTYL DINOZORD?

Once your Pterodactyl 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 P.DinoZord will be once again be available to select in the PowerCon Command Centre.

***Please note some players are still experiencing crashing issues when they attempt to Decombine their Zords, TinyCo have been made aware of this, but if you’re having this issue I recommend once you hit Decombine immediately visit OllieLand then back before you tap anything in your game, this seems to get round the issue***


There you have it, all the facts about the Pterodactyl 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. I combined the dinozord with Lois on accident…I didn’t realize that the fire kaiju was recovering. I don’t want to pay the clams, so if I hit decombine without having used any of the energy, will I get those 2 pink crystals back? Or will they be lost?

  2. I’m having in game issues activating the zord. I either see the option to combine minus lois and when activated it drops me out to see the main screen locked but the animations still running or the game just plain crashes back to my main app screen. I have it on IOS via my Ipad Mini. I’ve tried rebooting, forced closing and turning the Ipad off and back on but the issue persist. What am I doing wrong?

  3. If I could pass on the gas station I would, but Brian has only dropped 5 brushes so far. I might try to tough that one out though, and push the decision off to Monday.

  4. At this point I am trying to build a small cache of crystals to take a solid run at the fire kaiju so as to get all the shirts I need in one go (and hopefully some extras).

      That’s a good plan, but just remember the T-Shirts are a Rare drop, not always, so spend them wisely.

      • They seem to be a “never” drop for me. I’ve done several attacks without any T-Shirts dropping when the Kaiju is defeated. This leaves me almost stuck as I can’t get the building for those hairsprays that Pink Ranger Lois needs; have everything else for her but only 1 out of 6 hairsprays whilst only Bruce is able to get (rarely) them. So everything else is at a standstill for now, which is pretty frustrating and kinda boring…

          Have you double checked in the PowerCon Smoothie Bar that you’ve no R-Shirts as on the few occasions I got them, they didn’t show visually dropping immediately after the defeat. Just double check, but I agree they have brought many of us to a standstill. Lotty & I are in the same boat.

  5. Are PowerCon T-shirts a chance drop at each level or do you only receive them for defeating the strongest Kaiju?
