This would explain why my starter dino monstie has significantly higher stats than all 4 of my cheated elder dragons at the same level.
edit: I think it affects attacks, too. My NPC helper has an ice monstie, and whenever it does an ice attack on a resistant enemy it says "Ineffective", but it doesn't say anything when I use my own ice dragon's ice-based kinship attack.
the stats/rarity/etc is probably rolled when you pick up the egg. I dunno about overworld abilities yet, my cheated monsties are all fliers and I don't think I'm at the point in the story where flying is unlocked yet.

I can confirm that overworld abilities work as they should, as well the basic attack element of the cheated monsties. Tested this with a Velkhana cheated from a Velcidrome egg. So it seems its just the genes and stat growth affected.
the game does this.
set the level back low
no a trainer error, its a game mechanic.
When increasing level, you'll also have to increase XP accordingly.
Since there are no tables (that I know of) showing how much XP each level needs, you'll have to get creative. You can kind of see for a split second when a Monstie "levels up" how much XP he should have.
For example, when I set my Monstie at level 20, every time he "leveled up" (he didn't since XP was busted) I could see for a second the number "11180"; so I set XP to 11200 and that solved the problem.

I have a similar issue. Super Damage doesn't work at all for Rider or partner and usually reduces any damage you deal to 3. Super Damage for your monstie (Num 4) works for both your and your partner's monstie but only for basic attacks and non-elemental damage. So say Rathalos' speed/power/tech attacks do 9999 damage but if he were to use savage fireball, the damage is 3 again, no matter if the monster is weak/normal/strong against that element. Non elemental skills such as Nargacuga's killer tail and spike bomb still seem to work as intended though and hit a collective damage of 9999.
