      Hi and welcome to my first FAQ ever. Since I rushed through the game because
    I enjoyed it so much, I decided to share my newly acquired knowledge to anyone
    who might run into trouble doing the game.(Also helping me get my 100% ^^)
    There is alot to be done, I will be updating on a regular basis so keep in
    touch!!
    
    I am sorry that this is all I have right now, but I am working on it ^^"
    
    Constructive comments are always welcome, so be sure to send me an email!!
    
    This guide contains **SPOILERS** so be sure to read only the parts you need.
    I will try to keep from revealing the worst spoilers, but you never know.
    
    As for legal junk, all character names, events, items and cities are 
    copyrighted by their respective owners.
    
    As for this guide, it cannot be copied in part or in whole unless you have my
    written conscent. The only website the information is allowed to be showed on 
    is the following:

    o============================================================================o
    
      In Golden Sun : Dark Dawn, you can either use the touch screen to play 
    through the game. As for button controls, here is how they work.
    
    D-Pad : Move/Choose option
    A     : Search Object/Talk/Accept
    B     : Cancel
    Y     : Change from map to "Djinni Pool" and HP/PP bars
    X     : Open up Menu
    L&R   : Quick use of set Psynergy
    
    As for Touch controls, you direct your Psynergies on the field, can tap the
    shoulder shortcuts (they appear on screen), open the menu, change the map...

    IMPORTANT NOTES
    ******************************************************************************
    
      Here starts the main part of the guide. Each towns will have a list of 
    items for sale, and the town's Artifacts, as for dungeons a list of monsters,
    treasures and Djinnis to find before starting to write each part. 
    
    For the encyclopedias, unless specified, all encyclopedias are found within
    chats that follow the storyline. SOME ARE MISSABLE and will be written 
    as such with an asterisk*. One thing though, MOST Psynergy names will be 
    missables, be sure to get them whenever you see one. 
    
    For puzzles, I will refer movements as U for up, R for right, D for down,
    and L for left.
    
    As I write the guide, I will keep notes to myself, which will be removed 
    once I can put the info in the appropriate section.
    
    Here it goes.

    Update Encyclo   : None

    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
      After a somewhat long introduction to the basics of the game's storyline, 
    you will see Isaac and his son Matthew on the side of a cliff, having a chat.
    Be sure to tap with your style all words in RED if you want to fill your 
    encyclopedia for a perfect game. If you dont acre, just ignore them.
    
    Now head west and climb up the ladder for another chat. Tyrell in trouble, 
    you have to go help him. 
    
    You will be moved to inside the house and learn about equipping your 
    character. Karis will give you a Leather hat, head just north for the chest
    containing a Short Sword. Head up the stairs, then east. Check the second 
    bookshelf on the northern wall for the Sun Saga 1. This will show a short
    animation summarizing the events of Golden Sun and Golden Sun : The Lost Age.
    There are in total 5 tomes to find in the game. Anyways, check the bookcase
    on its left to get the Encyclopedias for Move and Growth Psynergies. Head 
    West, up the stairs for the Padded Gloves and down the stairs again. Equip
    your newly acquired items and head south to talk to Karis. She joins your
    party.
    
    Outside the cabin, head west to get an Herb from the westernmost pot. Search.
    Head back east past the cabin taking the bottom path. You will meet with
    Isaac and Garet by the bridge, arguing. After the chat, head all the way east
    and into the cave.

      Just follow the simple path until you are blocked by a yellowish big pillar.
    For those who didn't play the first Golden Sun games, you can jump on a block
    that is one "square distance" away from you if there is a gap. All you have
    to do is push in the direction you want to jump. Anyways, at the pillar,
    either open your Psynergy menu and use move on it, or backtrack for a quick
    explanation of how to use psynergies, and about the crystal. You can get the
    crystal on your way if you are running low on PP, otherwise just run along
    until you head outside.
    
    Head east and down the stairs, and again down the stairs. Use Move on the 
    pillar and move it to the right, you can now leap over the gap. Continue 
    along the road. Isaac will stop you at the bottom for a little talk, again.
    Once he's done, just run east untile you reach Tanglewood.

    Items Found	 : Herb, Bramble Seed, Elixir
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
      As you enter, you will have a chat about Djinns and you will be able to use
    a few until you rescue Tyrell. Head north untill the crossroad, then east.
    Forget the first path to the pond and take the longest one around. At the
    pond, hop left to get the Herb, then back at the start. Now head up until
    you reach the next big platform. From there, on the left side go down twice, 
    then left to the other side and exit north.
    
    This room isn't exactly complicated, just follow around the big vines 
    northwest, then back southeast on the other side, then north east to the chest
    containing Bramble Seed. Head back south until Garet stops you for a chat.
    Be sure to tap the Fireball Psynergy encyclopedia. Now head north on the newly
    cleared path to the next big flower to burn with Fireball, then to the
    next screen.
    
    Go on the bright green ledge, get off it and at the crosspoint head east
    along the small labirynth along the way, all the way to the flower. Use
    Fireball to burn it, and proceed on the other ledge. Once back in the middle,
    hop from ledge to ledge until you can get back down beside the small moving
    green leaf on in the north easertn corner. Use Growth Psynergy on it.
    Climb on the newly grown ladder and burn the flower you can see from there.
    Back down, go around it, then head to the northern exit.
    
    In this room, you will need to push the pillars in the water. Start with
    the one on the right, and go get the Elixir. Now push the other pillar too,
    be sure to check on the ground where you can push him down. Now, from the
    pillar, hop U,R,R,U,L, use Move the pillar Down in the water, then jump on 
    the  platform. Use Growth on the leaves and climb and exit in the cave once
    they are done talking.

    Follow the path, take the crystal if needed. Use Growth and climb and head
    east. Follow the track to the next screen.
    
    Another event. Once done, head along the path, using Growth as you pass by 
    (You need to be on the same height as the target of your psynergies) and
    climb down the plant you just grown. Be ready for a boss battle, so heal up.
    Once you are ready, light up that big flower on the wall. Dont worry too much
    though, Garet and Isaac will fight with you.

    This fight is very easy, you just need to have your characters above 40HP,
    and it will be a real joke. You can either just attack, or spam your Djinnis.
    You should kill it in a few turns with Garet and Isaac's help.

    Once over, hop back on the right, and head over the bridge to Tyrell. 
    Chat. Exit north, and follow the way until the next chat.
