    Starting in the second Palace, you'll be introduced to Treasure Demons by Mona. These Shadows hide in destructible loot throughout the Palaces (and in Mementos as rare sightings) and reward you immensely for destroying them. You may also attempt to recruit it into your team. For this trophy, there is a bit of a catch to trigger it:

    Defeat and recruit a Treasure Demon into your roster without it needing to replace another. There is a bit of a bug where the trophy won't recognize it getting in your team unless there is an empty slot for it to slide into. Be mindful of this upon your first introduction to them and you may well be able to get this trophy soon thereafter.

    LeosLastWillI'd like to add that the one you encounter in the second palace will always be Regent which is weak to nuclear damage so if you want to get it as soon as possible get to level 15 before that encounter and fuse a Makami that you can use. There's also a chance of finding Makami in the 2nd palace though I didn't see any until after the encounter with the treasure demon.

    Also it seems that multiple spawn on deviated floors in Mementos as I've encounter 3 at the start of a deviated floor already so it shouldn't be too much of a worry to find one.

    KTKarona@LeosLastWill: There is an Atom accessory in Madarame's palace, it seems? This gives you Frei to the person you attach it to. You can use this during the interactions against Regent. If you're like me, you might have to wait for Queen's Necklace in Kaneshiro's in order to get this trophy, or if you encounter a deviation in Mementos that allows for Regent to appear.

    Ah, I was wondering what the issue was - I got a Regent in Momentos and a Queen's Necklace in the third palace without it popping.

    KTKarona@stordoff: I was perplexed as well when I had caught several and was ahead of a friend, but he got the trophy before me. After I got the trophy, he stated he always had an empty space for incoming Persona.
