The Slimepedia is the in-game encyclopedia which documents discoveries found during gameplay. It is accessible from the Menu (pressing Esc or F1 by default or on Xbox up on the D-Pad) which provides information on various aspects of the game, as well as any discoveries made during the course of the game.
At the start of the game, a majority of the entries are locked. When a new discovery is made, an icon pops up on the bottom right hand side of the screen and its Slimepedia entry is accessible from that point on.
There are currently 83 available Discoveries.
The Tutorials tab contains information regarding basic gameplay. Many of these are experienced on a practical level on a playthrough, and can be accessed later from the Slimepedia in purely text form. They are:
- Basic Player Controls
- Vacpack: Vac-ing and Shooting
- Vacpack: Vac Tanks
- Vacpack: Health and Energy
- Ranching Basics: Corralling Slimes
- Ranching Basics: Feeding Slimes
- Ranching Basics: Plorts and the Plort Market
- Slime Science: Basics
- Slime Science: Gadget Mode
Main article: Slimes
Most normal slimes are discovered by containing them within the vacpack. However, there are a few exceptions:
- Largo Slimes, Feral Slimes and The Tarr are recorded by holding them on the nozzle. Due to the nature of Casual Mode, the Tarr's Slimepedia Entry is automatically unlocked in that mode.
- Gold Slimes, Quicksilver Slimes, and Saber Slimes are recorded when their plort is collected.
- Gordo Slimes are recorded when one is burst.
- A Lucky Slime is recorded when it eats meat, and by extension awards Newbucks. This can occur whether or not the slime was directly fed by the player.
The Resources tab lists all of the items that can be utilised by the player for a later benefit.
