Focus Level Up Outernauts Beasts You Have
When you are first starting out after the tutorial has ended, you will have the chance to battle and catch everything possible in the area. You should however, avoid doing so and instead focus on leveling up your starting Outernauts beast and catch 2~3 beasts. This is because you will have plenty of opportunities to catch them at higher levels, this can potentially save you time and effort to level up and train all of the beasts in Outernauts.
Level up When Energy is Low
You can get maximum Outernauts energy refilled when you level up, thus it is smart for you to time your level ups between levels.
Duel Friends Often for EXP
Whenever possible, duel your friends to level up your Outernauts beasts. Set your team up so that you can get type strength over your friends team setup.
Outernauts Money Management
Build as many Outernauts feeders as you can to generate the money. You will need money to heal up your beasts and they can quickly drain all of your resources. The basic idea is that you will need to increase your outernauts money income as much as possible to cover any expenses. This means that you should avoid purchasing any unneeded items especially at the beginning part of the game until you have established your Outernauts beasts level and strength. Consider letting your Outernauts beasts heal over time to conserve your lunar money as well if you do not need continuous game play.

Consider selling anything that you do not need in Outernauts such as plants and rocks in your home world. You will be able to generate some money as well when absolutely needed.
Understanding the Strength and Weakness Type
Make full use of the different element types of Outernauts beasts. Note that the different element planet typically host the beast of the same element type. For example, on an icy planet, you should consider taking a fire beast because they will deal additional damage to the ice type Outernauts beasts.
Star Gems Usage and Best Use
The Outernauts Star gems are the real money currency in the game. You will obtain some Star Gems throughout normal game play, however you should save them for the items that you really need urgently, assuming that you do not want to put more money into Outernauts.
Invite More Outernauts Friends
Just like most of the social games, your Outernauts friends are extremely important to help you throughout the game. They can provide you with materials in gifts, as well as free Outernauts energy, money, and fuel. Get and invite as many friends as possible to play Outernauts. Together you will advance and level up faster as a team in the game.
Help Friends in Outernauts to Help Yourself
When you are visiting your Outernauts friends, focus on helping the buildings that will generate the resources for you such as fuel or glowbugs. If you do not need any resources, considering speed up the upgrades of your Outernauts dojo and armouries because they typically take longer to complete. However, avoid hitting inactive dojos because you get only 5 Outernauts lunar. In addition, do not forget to heal their Outernauts beast as well.
Friends Stat Boost Juices
If your friends have no active fuel pumps, armories, and dojos, consider giving your friends pets stat boost juices. The outernauts stat boost juices give +5 attack, +5 defense, or +5 speed for 5 hours after using them.
Accepting Friends Help with Timing
When you highlight your Outernauts friends help, you can see the actions that they have done while in your homeland. You can then time or collect those buildings, then accept the friends help to obtain the maximum benefit. This method also works for your own Outernauts beasts healing, if you know that your friends are going to heal them, go out and battle with them to lower their HP to as low as possible. Then you can heal them using your friends queued help.
Thoughts on Outernauts Chest
At the time of writing, Outernauts chests do not grant you enough resources and lunar money to justify the energy. Only open chests when you absolutely need the money or items. In addition, you should only go for the big chests.
