The Gachapon (better known as the Gacha) is your primary means of progression in the game.
Through it, you can get more powerful cards to add to your deck. But that said, there are several types of Gachas present and it helps to know how each one works.

PP Gachas

The PP Gachas operate off of PP. PP can be obtained either from draining the PP Gauge, Dungeons, or Rewards.

Normal Gacha

The Normal Gacha can be rolled with PP you accumulate. It costs 100 PP per roll, with 1000 PP for a 10-roll. (When space is applicable, you will always do a 10-roll.) Around 98% of the rolls you make with the Normal Gacha will churn out N-rarity cards. Anything higher than that has considerably reduced rates. While it is possible to roll SS/SS+ cards from the Normal Gacha, they are exceedingly rare, with your chances far below 1%. If you're seriously gunning for an SS card, expect to burn at least 200-500k PP.

Material Gacha

Like the Normal Gacha, the Material Gacha can be rolled with PP you accumulate. However, it is 10x more expensive than the Normal Gacha to roll (1000 PP per single roll, 10,000 PP for a 10-roll). However, the Material Gacha consists only of "material" cards; Gem Marrons, Gold Marrons, and Skill Faries. It can be quite useful for getting materials to power up your Cards or simply to get some extra Gold. Like the Normal Gacha, higher-rarity cards are more difficult to get.

Dragon Stone Gachas

Rare Gacha

The Rare Gacha contains powerful SS/SS+ cards that can be obtained. However, it costs 4 Dragon Stones per individual roll (of a specified element) or 40 for an 11-roll (goes through all elements). You'll also typically get Faries or Marrones for each roll, depending on the Gacha present. The standard rates for the Rare Gacha are 20% for an S, and 7% for an SS. However, RNG is not always kind. Generally, there will be specified selections where if you roll an SS, it's guaranteed to be from a select group of cards.

The Rare Gacha comes in a few varieties:

Special 9 Selection

Typically showcased during weekends (or other special occasions), the Special 9 Selection will have a selection of 9 cards (3 per element) are guaranteed to show up if you happen to roll an SS card.
These gachas tend to follow patterns in what they'll feature; they'll usually have selections for upcoming Special Events, Colosseum, Sub Cards, and special selections for the 1st of the month.

MAX Gacha

The MAX Gachas are typically midweek, with a selection of either specific Skills or Types/Races. Generally, they offer a 50% chance on obtaining an SS to have a selected Skill-type or be a certain type of card (say Demon or God). For Skills, they usually have a good chance to start with increased Skill Lvs, which can be great for beginners. These cards also often come out at Max Level of their base rarity, so it can save newcomers some leveling trouble.

Collab/Holiday Gacha

Similar to MAX Gacha in how it operates; you have a 50% on obtaining an SS card for it to be a selected card, but it usually doesn't have the increased Skill Level or maxed Level present.

Other

Tickets

Special tickets can be obtained to redeem new cards. These come in the form of Rare Tickets, S Tickets, and SS Tickets. They guarantee that whatever card you get will be at least the rarity of the selected ticket (So if you redeem 1 S Ticket, the card you get will be at minimum an S-rarity card, but could turn out to be a SS card). However, while you have a chance to get a higher rarity card, R and S Tickets will be restricted to at least 28 Cost. For SS Tickets, such restrictions are no longer in place, allowing for a wide selection of cards.

New Year's Lucky Bag

A special event that usually happens on New Years, the New Year's Lucky Bag allows you to spend lots of stones to get guaranteed SS cards (in addition to a bunch of other goodies including lots of Material Cards and extra Deck Space).
Typically, it's 50 Stones for 1 card of a selected element and 100 Stones for 3 cards of any random element. Many players will often stock up on Stones towards the end of the year for this.

"Whale" Cards

Tucked away in the Normal and MAX Gachas, powerful 35-Cost cards lurk. These cards will NEVER appear in a Special 9 Selection.
Getting one of these cards is fairly random; they have a very rare chance to appear whenever you roll the Normal or MAX Gachas.

While trying to actively go for them can be expensive, they can add some serious power to your deck. Just consider yourself lucky (or a whale) if you manage to nab one.
But if you do decide to go after them, it's usually best to wait for a MAX Gacha featuring their specified Skill or Race as they'll have a slightly better chance of appearing.
