    I noted the splash screen that shows even 1-star Astromons can be ascended to 6-star astromons.

    Since 1-star Astromons are easier to farm, would it be better to farm twelve 1-star astromons, awaken and evolve to Evo.3, and then ascend to 6-star? Or is it better to farm (wish) for 5-star astromons to evolve and then ascend to 6-star?

    Regarding costs, it's cheaper to evolve a 1-star to evo.3 then ascend.

    Evolution costs
    1-star evo.1 to evo.3
    Cost to awaken = 10k*9
    Cost to evolve = 30k*3
    Total cost = 180k

    3-star evo.1 to evo.3
    Cost to awaken = 20k*9
    Cost to evolve = 50k*3
    Total cost = 330k

    4-star evo.1 to evo.3
    Cost to awaken = 30k *9
    Cost to evolve = 70k*3
    Total cost = 480k
    Ascension costs
    1-star to 5-star = 10k + 30k + 100k + 300k = 440k
    3-star to 5-star = 100k + 300k = 400k
    4-star to 5-star = 300k
    Total costs
    1-star to 5-star = 620k
    3-star to 5-star = 730k
    4-star to 5-star = 780k​

    So, my question: Will the stats on a 5-star evo'ed and ascended to 6-star make up for the difference in cost, time spent farming, etc.? If not, why aren't we all just farming sparklers and squirruses?

    The passive skills....nat1s have garbage passive skills compared to nat5s in general.

    Also the nat5s will have higher stats in the end as well.

    I think most of the 4* and 5* have good or excellent stats and good skills, while the 3*, 2* or 1* have low stats and not very useful skills. I would recommend to choose between 3* or 4* stars to ascend and evolve because the 5* are to difficult to evo.3 while its easier to evo.3 a 4* or 3*

    If the Astromon it's cheaper it doesn't mean it's better and it's better to spend more gold in a better Astromon.

    That's true but some are ranked pretty well. Also some have decent variant boosts.... I believe Ghos and light kilobat are 2 stars that are good bets. Sure others could be ok!

    Obviously there are a few exceptions.
