* Here's a guide from PS4 Gamefaq forums that works for XBOX1 as well if you really want to know every possible missable enemy: https://pastebin.com/h7w7a3gj

This achievement requires you not only to encounter every enemy in the game, but also fill out their respective data pages to 100% completion.

To do this, use a Magic Lens on every single enemy in the entire game. Always carry the max amount of Magic Lens you can when you leave a city, just to be safe.
Note that bosses are no longer missable, as they were in the X360 version. You can choose to replay most bosses for their Secret Missions or monster entries at Nam Cobanda Isle if you happen to miss a boss.

To check if an enemy has been Magic Lensed or not, press cn_RB (or whatever button you mapped to re-select an enemy). If you cannot see the health in numerical value (ex: 50,000/50,000), then you have NOT magic lensed the enemy yet.

Also UNEQUIP THE SCANNING SKILL REPEDE LEARNS FROM HIS Vagabond +1 WEAPON AS IT WILL MAKE CHECKING THIS A NIGHTMARE IF YOU FORGET IT IS ON AND USE HIM IN YOUR PARTY.

The most common missed enemies are, in my experience:

1) Adecor and Boccos in their first encounter with Yuri at the beginning of the game during the tutorial. Believe it or not you can magic lens them (most people miss this because they are new to the game and it isn't exactly the first thing you do when you are learning basic controls).

In fact, in every encounter you have with them, you can Magic Lens them for an entry. These guys don't come back until a New Game, so you MUST get these entries the moment you encounter them!

2) Zagi, in his first encounter, has two "forms": you can Magic Lens him prior to Estelle joining the battle AND after she joins the battle. They count as two separate entries.

3) Duke's Third Form "Radiant Winged One" is only unlocked if you "beat" the game with all the Fell Arms obtained. After slaying his second form, the Fell Arms will combine into him and unlock his third form. This encounter is missable if you fail to collect all the Fell Arms, but can be revisited once you do.

4) Traitor to Heaven, and every unique enemy in the EX dungeon "Labyrinth of Memories" This superboss & enemies within is part of an EX dungeon that requires you to revisit the Crag of Pharaoh prior to going to Zaude. There, you will see a portal that will take you back to the mirage of Yormgen. Complete the dialog events and leave the Crag of Pharaoh, complete the game and the EX dungeon will unlock after you return to the Illusion of Yormgen & go to Danghrest after visiting the Illusion again. This is an EXTREMELY easy to miss dungeon if you are not careful and is required for unlocking several entries in the monster book to complete it.

5) Gauche and Droite & Coliseum entries. There are unique enemies in the coliseum to fight and you need the challenge letters to unlock the 100 man and 200 man melee modes to fight them.

For the Hunting Blades letter, sometime after the final dungeon appears, go to Keiv Moc and a scene should happen right when you walk in, you should get a title for Karol and a letter.

For Leviathan's Claw, once you've completed Zaude, head to Torim Harbor towards the buildings just up the stairs from the docks. You'll see a scene with Gauche and Droite. After the scene, head to Ehmead Hill and enter it from the left side. Head up and to the right to get a scene with the party and obtain the Fire Lily. Next, head to Mt Temza for another scene to trade the Fire Lily for the Compact of Remembrance. Finally, head to Zaude again to the room where you fought Yeager, and you'll fight Gauche and Droite (one time encounter) and earn the letter.

Flynn has a letter you earn by going back to Aurnion and talking to the guard there.

The fourth and final letter is unlocked after completing the EX dungeon "Labyrinth of Memories" (mentioned in #4). You need ALL four letters & 100 melee done on 3 characters to unlock 200 man melee and since the EX dungeon is missable, that makes the 200 man mode entries also MISSABLE.
_________________________________________________________________________________

If you complete the game you can transfer your Enemy Book for 10 GRADE and focus on the entries you missed in New Game+ playthroughs. It is possible to get every enemy in one playthrough, though it is more advantageous to do so in your run with GRADE modifiers while hunting items for the collect every item achievement/going for level 200 achievement.
