What is a Cohoot

This is an article about the Cohoot, a new pet in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know what it does and how you can interact with it, read on!

Cohoot Basic Information

Cohoot Official Render
Official Description
Cohoots are popular pets in Kamura, beloved for their affectionate and clever nature. Apart from providing some much-needed comfort to hunters, they also help out on quests by showing the positions of monsters.
In-between quests, you can dress them up in fancy outfits, so make sure to give them the daily attention they deserve.

A New Pet in Monster Hunter Rise

Cohoot New Pet

The Cohoot is your Hunter's new pet owl in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). You may interact with it while in Kamura Village like Poogie in the past games!

No News for Poogies

As of writing, there is no news yet for the return of Poogie. In Monster Hunter World, Poogies pick up items, can be dressed and interacted with. With the introduction of Cohoots, it seems that it will completely replace Poogies as the village pet.

What Cohoots Do

Scouts the Position of Monsters

Cohoots Scout Monsters

At the start of any quest, your Hunter will release a Cohoot to scout the location. It will show all monster positions which hunters can see on their maps. The Cohoots, however, cannot identify the monster completely hence the map does not show their monster icons at the start.

Sends out Join Requests

Send out Join Requests

The Cohoot enables Hunters to send Join Requests so other Hunter can join you in your current quest. Think of it like the SOS Flare in Monster Hunter World (MHW)!

Collects Items in its Nest


The Cohoot's Nest can be found on top of the tall tree bearing the Buddy Plaza Shrine within the Buddy Plaza. In its nest are items, some of which are rare like the Lagniapple and Steel Egg. So, be sure to check the nest as it refreshes after every 5th quest completed.

How to Change Cohoot's Clothing

① Call your Cohoot

Calling your Cohoot to you changes your game HUD interface. Every other menu cannot be accessed except for Cohoot Controls which will pop up on the Right-side of your screen. You can still do camera controls while accessing Cohoot Controls.

② Open the Pet menu

You can access the Pet Menu by pressing the X Button. Once there, you choose the Change Clothes option by pressing the A Button.

③ Choose Cohoot Clothing

Once the Cohoot Clothing options are open, you will then see the available clothing your Cohoot can wear!

Takes Selfies in Photo Mode

Whenever you decide to take a Selfie in Photo Mode, your Cohoot will hold the camera and take a photo for you! A nice touch, Capcom!

Can Be Interacted With

Cohoot Interact With

It seems you can interact with Cohoots by feeding them! In the past games, interacting with Poogies increases their affection and in turn, increases the quality of the items they pick up. We expect that some kind of benefit will be implemented in Rise but at this moment, it is yet to be known.
