Habitats can be purchased in the game Shop; some with gold, others with friend stones, and others using crystals. They can also be won as a prize when you play the Lottery. Only three monsters can be placed on a particular habitat at one time. Most Habitats are always available in the Shop, but there are some that only become available during special sales or holidays.
When a Monster has its Needs met, it gains experience. If that Monster is on a Habitat with the same element, it will gain an additional amount of experience depending on which Habitat it's on. For instance, Hornster is a water monster, and the Lake is a water habitat that provides a bonus of 1xp. When Hornster gains experience, he'll gain one additional point if he's on the Lake.
After a Monster has fought in a battle off of the map, there is a period of time that needs to pass before it can enter into another battle. This downtime is known as "Recharge." If a Monster is on a Habitat with the same element, then its recharge will be reduce by a certain amount depending on what Habitat it's on. For instance, if Mothster (an air monster) is on an an Air Statue (an air habitat), his recharge will be reduced by 2%. If that Mothster is in a Battle with a recharge of 5 minutes, it will actually be ready for another battle after 4 minutes and 54 seconds.
