Capture Pods can be used by first damaging a creature below 50% of its maximum health, and then throwing the pod at it. Capture Pods are destroyed if they miss the monster and instead hit a block, so if on a monster hunt some back-up pods are a must. After the monster is caught a Filled Capture Pod will be obtained, which will release the monster if thrown. In order to retreat the monster the player can either throw another Capture Pod at them or let them get killed by non-player damage.
Pets don't teleport back to the player's ship and are lost if done so.
- The way capture pods are used seem to resemble Poké balls in Pokémon, as the player has to damage the monster to make it easy to capture.
- Pets captured by the Capture Pod can be retrieved by killing the pet by any manner, Sawblade Trap or Poison Water being examples. Throwing another Capture Pod at the Pet will also cause it to revert back into a filled pod.
- It seems to be impossible to capture critters, flying creatures or larger monsters.
