INTRODUCTION
------------

 You have indeed picked an excellent game in Evolution. The first RPG
for the Dreamcast, it was certainly worth the wait; packed full of
exploring and fun. But enough, no need to write a review for it here.
This is the first full walkthrough I've ever written for an RPG, and I
have to say, it's a lot of hard work! Well, thanks for using my
walkthrough, I hope it helps you.


UPDATES
-------

V. 1.2 -- 6/28/00 -- This is the final version. I know it's still not
                     complete, so don't email me complaining! In this
                     version I just updated the copyright date, changed
                     the text in the legal info slightly, and updated
                     my email address (although I may not be able to
                     help people with questions much, since I haven't
                     played the game in awhile.)

V. 1.1 -- 1/13/00 -- Some minor updates on the item list (armor and
                     weapons) and the walkthrough. Also added one skill
                     for Pepper and one enemy I missed in the Blind
                     Ruins. The rest is going to have to be delayed
                     even longer because there was a death in my family
                     and I haven't had the time to work on it.

V. 1.0 -- 1/7/00 -- Created walkthrough. It isn't fully complete yet,
                    but I had to get it up anyway. I apologize for any
                    trouble it may cause, and will get it finished as
                    soon as possible. (In a day or two)


_________________________
II. PLAYING THE GAME/ETC.
-------------------------

CONTROLS
--------

The default controls are as follows:

 D-Pad/Analog - Move/Switch Between Characters in Menus
 A - Confirm/Enter
 B - Cancel
 X - Menu
 Y - Walk/Arrange Items
 A+B+X+Y+START - Soft Reset

The controls can be changed in the config menu.


THE MENU
--------

 The menu can be accessed by hitting the X button (unless you change
it in the config menu.)

ITEM - Use/Throw away items
EQUIP - Equip weapons/armor/cyframe parts
SKILL - Shows skills; you can master them from the menu if you have
enough TP
STATUS - Shows statistics of your characters (i.e. HP, FP, Attack) and
your level/experience information.
PARTY - Allows you to make changes to your party
 FORMATION - Change where your characters stand in battle
 DISPERSE - Make one member leave to make room for another
CONFIG - Allows you to change game settings
 SOUND - Stereo/Mono
 SPEED - Changes message display speed
 CONTROLLER - Make changes to the controls

 In the Equip, Skill, and Status menus, switch between characters by
hitting right or left on the d-pad or moving the analog stick right or
left.


BATTLE
------

 While exploring ruins, you will run into monsters you have to battle.
If you attack the enemy from behind without them seeing you, you will
get a surprise attack on the enemy and will be able to get in several
turns before the enemy. If you meet the enemy head on, you'll have a
normal battle. If the enemy attacks you from behind, they'll get a
surprise attack against you and get many turns in before you. The
icons on the right display the order of turns.

Battle Menu
-----------

Attack - Attack the enemy with weapon/cyframe
Special - Use/Master a skill
Item - Use an item
Move - Move forward or backward (NOTE: The farther back, yoou are, the
higher your defense but lower your attack and the closer you are to
the front, the higher your attack and lower your defense. It's usually
best to stay in the middle.)
Defend - Wait in defensive position to reduce damage from enemy
Flee - Escape from battle (all characters must be in the back row)


ELEMENTS
--------

 The elements include fire, ice, and lightning. Attacking an enemy who
is weak against a certain element with that element will inflict more
damage than normal. What element an enemy is weak against depends on
what they're strong against.

Strong vs. | Weak vs.
---------------------
Ice        | Fire
Fire       | Ice
Fire & Ice | Lightning


STATUS CHANGES
--------------

 Status changes are caused by certain enemy attacks and limit or hurt
the character they are inflicted on in some way during battle.

Status Change | Effect
-----------------------------------------
Berserk       | Character attacks every turn for more damage than
                normal
Blind         | Hits and Evasion lowered
Blocked       | Can't use skills
Brainwashing  | Controlled by enemy (will recover if attacked)
Confusion     | Attacks random targets including friends
Cursed        | Luck and Agility lowered
Fallen        | Can't do anything in battle (occurs when HP reaches 0)
Paralysis     | Can't move until recovered
Poison        | Damages character every turn
Recovering    | Heals character every turn
Sleep         | Can't move until woken up (will wake up if attacked)


SKILLS/TP
---------

 Each character has different skills they can learn by earning enough
TP. Using them costs FP, which can be regained by attacking in battle.
Cyframe users can learn different abilities for each cyframe part
(besides stat boosting parts.) You can master a skill from the skills
menu or in battle. If you master it in battle, you will use the skill
without using any FP. You gain TP by defeating enemies and winning
battles.


LEVELING UP/EXPERIENCE
----------------------

 After each battle, you gain a certain amount of experience points
depending on what monsters you defeated, how many there were, and how
strong they were. Once you gain enough experience, you go up in level.
This raises your stats, thus making you stronger. You should fight
every enemy to be sure you're strong enough to survive.


THE LAUNCHER FAMILY'S DEBT
--------------------------

 The Launcher family owes a lot of money to the Society, so Mag has to
find treasures in the ruins to pay off the debt. Some of the money
will automatically be used to pay off part of the debt after you
finish an assignment from the Society. You can use your own money to
pay toward the debt also, but it's not neccessary except to pay any
fees for being saved by the Society you might have, so if you don't
feel like fighting a lot of enemies, don't avoid them, just take a
break.


DUNGEONS
--------

 Throughout the game, you'll visit different ruins where you'll fight
monsters and seek out treasure. The layout, treasures, and monsters are
all random. As you walk through the ruins, you'll automatically create
a map. On the map, white squares represent treasure chests and red
squares represent monsters. Green squares represent traps, but will
only appear if you use a trap search item. You'll want to avoid the
traps on the ground (where part of the floor comes up.) However, even
if you step on a trap on accident, some of the traps are good and
restore HP or FP. At the end of each dungeon, you will fight a boss
who holds a treasure that you can trade in at the Society for money to
pay off the Launcher family's debt and a portion of it to keep.
 To stay at a high enough level to survive, you should fight every
monster. If all of your characters' HP reach zero, the Society will
come and save you, but you'll lose any items you got and they will
add a small fee to your debt. When you reach the end of a floor
(usually stairs,) you will be given the option to go to the next floor
or 'pause' your game. 'Pausing' your game makes a temporary save file
at that point in the dungeon so that you can stop playing for awhile
without having to start the dungeon all over again which will be
deleted once you load it. The amount of floors in the ruins depends on
how many ruins you have explored.
 In each dungeon there are warps back to the Society scattered about
that are also marked with white squares. Once you reach the bottom
floor of a dungeon, the Society can't come and save you, but there is
always a save point and a warp back to the Society and there are no
monsters except for the boss.
 Sometimes you'll find yourself in a room with tons of monsters where
the music changes. As much as you'd like to just avoid them, you
really should defeat ALL of the monsters!


TYPES OF TRAPS
--------------

- Restores 50% of HP
- Restores 50% of FP
- Reduces FP
- Erases Map
- Damages All Characters by Fire
- Confuses Characters
- Blinds Characters
- Alarms Enemies
- Makes Enemy Appear
- Makes All Enemies on floor Stronger
- Makes All Enemies on floor Weaker
- Takes an item out of your inventory and puts it in a chest on that
  floor
- Warps you somewhere else on that floor
- Raises one stat by 1
- Makes all monsters on that floor disappear

APPRAISAL ITEMS
---------------

 Some of the items you find in treasure chests throughout the ruins
are items that need to be appraised at the Society by talking to Nop
(the man at the left counter.) He will pay you for some of the items,
and for others charge you to make them into items.


ITEM SHOP/CYFRAME UPGRADING
---------------------------

 You can go to the item shop near the Society to buy items and
equipment to use on your adventures. Every time you explore some
ruins, more items are added to the item shop, so visit often to be
well equipped and prepared.
 In the building right next to the item shop is Sam the Upgrader, who
will upgrade your cyframes. If you have an Upgrade Kit, he can add a
slot to your cyframe for 1000 gold. He can also level up your cyframe
parts to make them stronger and slightly reduce the cost of FP for
each ability of the upgraded part.


CHARACTERS
----------

MAG LAUNCHER
  Son of the famous adventurer, Asroc Launcher and the main character
  of Evolution. Made a promise to protect his adventuring partner,
  Linear, who mysteriously showed up one day with a letter from Mag's
  father. Mag is always in the party. Uses a hand-type cyframe.

LINEAR CANNON
  A shy, mysterious girl who showed up at the door of the Launcher
  residence with a letter from Asroc Launcher telling Mag to watch
  over her until he returns. Linear is always in the party for most of
  the game.

GRE NADE
  The Launcher family's servant and Mag's guardian while his father is
  away. He makes a good companion as he is powerful and has many
  useful abilities. Gre will join your party if you talk to him at the
  Launcher residence.

CHAIN GUN
  Only child of the Gun family, the Launcher family's rivals. She likes
  Mag and is jealous of Linear. She has a very large variety of
  attacking abilities. She will join you if you talk to her in the
  blue bus outside the area of the Launcher residence. Uses a
  sword-type cyframe.

PEPPER BOX
  A wandering adventurer who shows up after Mag's first successful
  assignment. She has a variety of abilities, including status
  changing attacks. She will join you if you talk to her in the saloon
  after meeting her at the Society. Uses a cannon-type cyframe.

III. WALKTHROUGH
----------------

WALKTHROUGH
-----------

 You start off in a battle against two monsters. You can easily beat
them by simply attacking. After you win, you will receive a Naolin
and a Naolin Gold. The game controls itself for awhile after this
battle. During this time, you'll meet Chain Gun, an adventure of the
Launcher family's rivals' family, who made it to the treasure before
Mag.
 Once you have control of your character, leave the Launcher residence
and make your way back to the Society in town. Talk to Nina (the woman
at the left counter) and ask for an assignment. Choose whatever ruins
you want to go to (the Blind Ruins are the easiest to start out with.)
 After you have your assignment, get a third party member (Chain in
the blue bus right outside the area of the Launcher residence or Gre in
the Launcher residence.) Then head to the Sea Otter seaplane by taking
the other path in the area of the Launcher residence and you can fly
to whatever ruins you chose. (See the Ruins section below for info on
the ruins.)
 After you beat the first ruins, you will earn 10,000 gold, 8,000
toward the debt and 2000 for yourself. Appraise any appraisal items
you found in the ruins by talking Nop at the left counter. Now you can
take your earnings and buy new equipment/items and upgrade your
cyframe (if you want to update Chain or Pepper's cyframe, wait until
before your next assignment.)
 Head back to the Launcher residence and Gre will ask you if you'd
like to retire for the evening. Answer yes.
 The next morning, Gre will tell Mag that someone from the 8th
Imperial Army came to see him to ask about the legendary cyframe,
Evolutia. Gre tells Mag that they are waiting for him at Pannam Port.
Exit the Launcher residence and you will automatically be taken to the
port.
 When you arrive at the port, you will see the giant ship of the 8th
Imperial Army. Walk up and talk to the sailor by the lift and he'll
let you ride up into the ship.
 Follow the path straight. Don't bother with any of the side doors,
there aren't any items or anything. Eventually you'll reach a
staircase where you'll be stopped. Mag tells the man who he is and you
are shown up the stairs to meet Prince Eugene.
 Eugene will have a little 'misunderstanding' about why there are two
people, and then you'll have control over Mag again. Go up to Eugene
and talk to him. Mag and Eugene will have a chat about Evolutia, then
you will be rudely told to leave. Just go back out the way you came.
 The next morning, Gre and Mag will talk some more, and then it will
be time to go out for some more adventuring! Go to the Society; when
you enter, you'll meet Pepper. After she leaves, talk to Nina for a
new assignment. One area will be blockaded by the 8th Imperial Army,
so you'll have to pick from the other three.
 After getting an assignment, get a third character (you can have
Pepper in your party now, she's at the saloon.) Now head the the Sea
Otter and fly to the ruins you chose. (See Ruins section for more
info.)
 After the second ruins, you will earn 20,000 gold, 4,000 for
yourself. Appraise any items you found, buy items/upgrade cyframes in
town then head back to the Launcher residence and 'call it a day'
(option 2.)
 Once you have control over Mag again, head back to the Society, get
another assignment, get a third party member, buy/upgrade whatever you
want in town then go to the next ruins in the Sea Otter airplane. (See
'Ruins' section below.)
 Your earnings for this assignment will be 30,000 gold and you'll be
able to keep 6,000. Appraise whatever items you need to, buy stuff, and
upgrade your cyframes then head back to the Launcher residence.
 Mag and Gre will talk for awhile again. In the morning, Eugene pays
Mag a visit and they have a talk for awhile, until Eugene finds out
that Linear is not in the Launcher family by blood and leaves suddenly
giving the order to get the girl, Linear. After that's all over, it's
time for some more ruin exploring. Go to the Society for an assignment,
get your third character, make any preparations you need, and hop into
the seaplane to the last remaining unblockaded ruins.


RUINS
-----

Blind Ruins
-----------
 These are the easiest ruins to start out with. REMEMBER: To be strong
enough to survive, always fight ALL of the enemies.

 Enemies (see enemy list for more info):
  Big Ben
  Hydra
  Paleo Calinoides
  Popo Tribesman
  Spekler
  Teio Roach
  Terapede
  BOSS: Mandasks (See 'Bosses' below for strategy)

Heaven Ruins
------------
 These are, in my opinion, the second easiest ruins. Not much to say,
but remember to fight all of the enemies.

 Enemies (see enemy list for more info):
  Big Ben
  Claymore
  Millepede
  Peripatus
  Protocalus
  Spekler
  Teio Roach
  BOSS: Rafflesian

NOTE: Before fighting the boss, put everyone in the back row.

Shades Ruins
------------
 Most of the enemies here are weak against fire. Don't forget to
explore each level completely.

 Enemies (see enemy list for more info):
  Archaeopteryx
  Bacterio
  Brummbar
  Crinoid
  Gumbas
  Hyenodon
  Paleo Calinoides
  BOSS: Shadenischus


BOSSES
------

BLIND RUINS - MANDASKS
 If Mag has Magna Rave have him use it continuously, otherwise use
Magna Combo. If he runs out of FP, have him use regular attacks. Linear
should use Protection Spell right away; after that she should heal your
characters when neccessary, and when they don't need it she should just
attack. You may also want to use her Strenth Spell. If Gre has
Energy-Saving, have him use it on Mag. Other than that, just have him
attack. Pepper and Chain should use regular attacks and/or attacking
skills. Mandasks will sometimes paralyze you, but it usually heals
automatically after one or two turns. If your characters desperately
need to be healed, but Linear's turn isn't soon enough or she is
paralyzed, have Gre, Pepper, or Chain use healing items.


HEAVEN RUINS - RAFFLESIAN

  **STRATEGY ONE**
 Put everyone in the back row before starting the battle. Rafflesian
will suck all of your characters forward one rank periodically
throughout the battle. DO NOT let any of your characters stay in the
front row, because Rafflesian will do a VERY powerful attack on one of
them. Have Mag use Magna Rave if he has it; if not, use Magna Combo.
If he starts to run low on FP have him attack regularly. Have Linear
cast spells to raise your party's defense and attack and anything else
if you like, and also have her heal when neccessary. If she's not doing
anything else, have her use regular attacks to regain her FP. If Gre
has Energy-Saving, have him use it on Mag (especially if Mag is using
Magna Rave.) Other than that, Gre should just attack or use healing
items if neccessary. If Pepper has Trigger Happy (or Pepper Flash),
have her use that and after that just have her attack and use healing
items when needed. If she doesn't have it, have her use a combination
of regular attacks and attacking skills. Have Chain use a combination
of regular attacks and attacking skills and also healing items when
neccessary. Be warned: Rafflesian has a good curing skill so take him
out as quickly as you can.

  **STRATEGY TWO**
 If the first strategy is giving you trouble, just do the same thing
except allow Rafflesian to suck you in and do his powerful attack.
After he does the attack again someone, have Linear use a cure spell on
them or have her or someone else use a curative item on them.

SHADES RUINS - Shadenischus
 Shadenischus uses a strategy similar to Refflesian, except he pushes
you toward the back and then does a really powerful ice laser against
everyone in the back row. I suggest you stay AWAY from the back row,
because unlike Rafflesian's attack, this attack hits the whole rank
(Mag's Moving Hand Parts may come in handy here.) Use the usual basic
strategy; if Mag has Magna Rave, he should use it and if not, he should
use Magna Combo (regular attacks if he runs out of FP.) Linear should
use Protection Spell and should also heal your characters when
necessary, with maybe a regular attack here and there to regain her FP.
If Gre has Energy-Saving, have him use it on Mag and other than that he
should use regular attacks and curative items when needed. Chain and
Pepper should go all out with their most powerful skills but also use
regular attacks once in awhile to restore FP. If Pepper has Trigger
Happy or Pepper Flash, you may want to have her use that and then just
use regular attacks. Having to move forward all the time may make this
battle seem somewhat challenging, but Shadenischus isn't really the
hardest of the bosses.

HINTS AND TIPS
--------------

- Try to fight all the enemies so you'll be strong enough to survive
- Search every floor completely! Check all the treasure chests
- ALWAYS save the game at the end of each dungeon before the boss
- Don't constantly rely on skills during regular battles; attack
  normally a lot so you won't run low on FP
- Try to save a few poison preventing accessories 'til the end if you
  can, because it will help a lot in the final battle
- If you find that you aren't strong enough to beat the boss at the
  end of a dungeon, go back to town then return to the ruins. You'll
  be able to choose which floor to start on; start a few floors below
  the last one so you can build up a bit before fighting the boss.
- Don't forget to return everyone to their original ranks after
  fighting Rafflesian
- If you step on a trap that confuses your characters, just hold still
  and after a bit you will be cured automatically
