you just need to have the elements correct

to make a pummel (Grass Rock Water) you combine

potbelly (grass) + fwog (rock water)
or
shrubb (grass rock) + toe jammer (water)

its all in the monster shop
Having all the elements correct doesn't automatically guarantee you will get what you hoped for, as already stated...you may get one of the parents instead...this has already happened to me twice (not the basic breeds)

Thank you for your response BBB_MJS.
Well it's still hit and miss today.
Before heading of the zzzz land last night, I refreshed all minimized apps for a clean start this morning....first app I opened was Dragonvale (no problems), next was singing monsters, (here's the sequence of issues)
1. Wouldn't open, pop up stated cannot connect to server, try again?
2. Asked me to choose login...I did so)
3. App opened (took a bit of time), all coins ready to collect plus food...monsters all singing....as soon as I click to collect, nothing happens...click a few more things, still nothing.

Close the app, refresh it, reopen it....the things at had clicked on have now worked and the rest is able to be collected.
This same sequence always happens if I am asked to login (can't collect anything or hatch a new dragon until I close and refresh the app)

Another thing I've noticed ....in GC achievements neither myself nor my friends have been credited with ‘get a monster 100% happy'. I currently have 9 /14 100% happy

No, I'm not doing anything wrong.....maybe you have just been very lucky.
It's already been acknowledged on here that it may not work first time with the correct combo elements.

My two fails were when trying for a Pummel (used potbelly/fwog) got a fwog
and trying for an Entbrat (used potbelly/ t-rox) got another t - rox.

Footnote: I have since got them both second time round with two different combos which still contained the correct elements needed

Couple of observations

Breeding - Some players are very lucky and get the right monster every time, some of us are not. Trying for a Entbrat (leaf, rock, rain,snowflake) breeding a Shrubb (leaf, rock) with a Maw (rain,snowflake) and got a 30 minute timer, don't believe that is a Entbrat. Double check me but I believe I have all the correct elements.

Goals - I am a level 15 and have a goal to get 5 large Bakeries. The market has me capped at 4 Bakeries so I cannot complete this goal. I assume I will get the needed Bakery at a higher level but should not be a goal at my level.

My only 2 criticisms/bug notes/comments are these:

Dean already mentioned this but when you go to visit a friend you can only see thier first island. I want to view my wife's 2nd island but there doesn't seem to be a way.

Secondly, it's disappointing that I have Goals in my Goal List that I've already completed but didn't get credit for them because they weren't on the list when i completed them. For example, i now have goals to Hatch a T-rox but I got him pretty early, before that was listed as a Goal. So now I don't get the credit (or gold or food) 'til I hatch another T-Rox.

Anyhow, thought I'd share those notes. Thanks!
Hi emdash! Thrilled to hear that you are enjoying the game! Thanks so much for your feedback, I will let you know that we are working on integrating a feature in a future update which will allow users to view all of their friends' islands, so stay tuned.

With respect to the Goal List, it is not retrospective, unfortunately. Remember, though, that breeding another monster to clear the goal is still beneficial for you because you can place it and gain XP and then sell it!

Hmm. Sometimes it takes the server a few more seconds at the beginning of a new session to process the coin collect requests. If you've selected them once and you send multiple requests in before it goes through, that could be a reason why the game is getting befuddled. In any event, I would love for you to send support@bigbluebubble.com an email so we can get to the bottom of this soon.

The GC Achievement for 'Get a monster 100% happy' is currently buggy and we're looking into fixing it as soon as possible!

Have you tried placing Large Bakeries on your second (or third) island?

A note re: everyone's attempts to breed (that didn't sound right...)

The only real 'bugs' that might occur during the breeding process would be if the product monster is a total surprise (Mammott + Potbelly=Entbrat <-- P.S. that ain't right ). If the product monster is a parent, then nothing is wrong. It's a game of percentages, you just have to keep trying!
