Ok, first of all there are more than three types of grunty (there are 9 types), theres the noble grunty, iron grunty, and poison grunty (all i know so far), so keep experimenting. In ryu book VIII it tells you how many grunties you've raised, how many of each type of grunty you raised, and what types youve raised. It also tells you how much grunty food youve collected (thats how i figured out this). you can get kites (supposedly) best equipment: Bom-ba-ye but there's also Lv.14 Dante's Blades (obtained by throwing his weapon continuosly in springs of mists), and the Lv. 14 'Rare' Hyakkidouran and, if I remember correctly, you can obtain this by data draining the parasite dragon in the beginning of the Data Flag part of the game.
