Minor Beginning Game Details
Colony 9. Colony 9 is the starting point of the game. Colony 9 is where Shulk, Reyn, Dunban, and Fiora all live. It is located at the foot of the Giant God Bionis. You'll find a variety of enemies in this area including Bunny like creatures called Bunnits, Crab like creatures called Krabbles, and many others as well. While most of the enemies in the area are what you would expect for a starting area, that is to say, easy, you'll want to be careful if you decide to fully explore the map of colony 9 because there are certain areas in the far areas of the map that have much higher leveled enemies waiting to ambush the unsuspecting explorer.
