If so, is there a way to "unlearn" a form in order to make it easier to learn a new one?
Looking at the code, you always have a 1 in 20 shot to learn a new form. So, not sure there's anything you can do short of cloning and killing the same monster over and over again to get specific forms that you want.

Also, just to be clear, you need to be mimicking a thing when you land the killing blow on it to even get a chance.
