I have not heard from any reliable source that one of the parents can be a single type. I have been trying Franken and Spray mostly because of the shorter fail times, it worked for a friend and he shared there is no Mining element in these two so there is no chance to get a Caterpillar (24 hours), and Mole (18 hours). My son and his friend both got lucky over the weekend and bred Astro using Mole and Grinder. I tried it twice and got my usual lucky Caterpillar

Good luck and we all look forward to the news of you getting one soon
Thank you for the combos gives me something else to try. Good luck to you also if I get one I will post it and also the combo.

Not sure why but I'm having a hard time staying interested in this game. I play DragonVale all the time so I figured I'd like this game too but for whatever reason I just can't get into it.

I'm about to have at least one of each bot and I'm wondering what I'll do after that. I'm looking forward to getting to max level and finally being able to seriously play with the layout of my 'island'. GN does some things better than DV and some things not as well. Having multiple islands and boost structures and/or shrines would be nice. Hopefully some more limited edition bots will be available by the end of the year as well. I really like the addons you can get for bots and how everyone's island can look different, also that you can speed things up for people.

Its early in the life of the game though so ill trust backflip to keep adjusting and expanding.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Being able to speed stuff up for people is cool. I wish they'd bring that to DV.

Well x-ray breeding now, so as far as I can tell I will have all the available bots.

AWESOME - you are so lucky getting Astro today after posting today and trying for so long. I just visited and reduced your breeding time from 30 hours to 21 hours, someone else must have visited and reduced it the first 12 hours. Each subsequent visit reduces less time as compared to the initial 25% reduction. I am able to see the times when I zoom in and look at each timer bar - some people only see the timer bar and I think this is due to the iOS version, or device, etc. Hopefully will get one soon!
