 [1] - Introduction
=============================================================================
 
      This guide was created to give a better understanding of the cute
    little virtual pet-like creatures in the game known as Chao.  Since the 
    game was released, the SA2B board (and my inbox) had been filled with 
    questions about the little guys, and usually the same questions were
    asked many times.  And so, I began work on this guide.  I will try to
    cover as many aspects as I can about them, and perhaps later on, the 
    Tiny Garden you can get when you link up your Game Boy Advance. :)


 (a) Version History

    Ver. 1.0 - 2/17/02

    Yet more Black Market items, and a complete guide to the Tiny Garden.

    Ver. 1.2 - 2/20/02
    Added info on selling items.
    Also corrected a few things, as well as credit to those
    who had provided me with the info in the Credits section.

    Ver. 1.7 - 3/28/02
    Dark Chao Evolution guide done.

    Ver. 1.8 - 7/01/02
    Not much this time around.  More corrections, updated contact 
    information and such.  I hope to get around to finishing the evolution
    stuff soon.
    Also, I will no longer be answering any email with questions clearly 
    answered within the guide.  So please, before you waste you time 
    (and mine) sending an e-mail, double-check it is NOT mentioned anywhere
    within this guide.  If it is, I shall personally point and laugh at you.
    
    Ver. 1.9 - 8/8/02
    Typo fixes, completed Animal Location Chart.
 

=============================================================================
 [2] - The Basics
=============================================================================
    
    This section will cover the basic things you'll need to know when raising
    and interacting with your Chao. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (a) Hatching
    
    When you first enter the garden, you'll notice an egg or two sitting
    somewhere around there. They are Chao, and you must now hatch the egg to
    release the creature inside. There are several ways to go about doing 
    this, each having an effect on it's temperament.
    
    The first and best way is to pick up the egg, and while still holding
    the action button down, move the control stick in any direction. Your 
    character will now be gently rocking the egg, which pretty much 
    guarantees that your Chao will be a happy one.

    You could also leave the egg be, and let it hatch on it's own. This
    has a more random effect on how your Chao's overall attitude is, but
    usually doesn't produce Chao as happy as ones who were hatched by the
    first method.

    The last way to hatch your Chao is to pick up the egg and throw it. I
    don't recommend doing this, as it makes your Chao quite displeased at
    you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (b) Feeding your Chao

    Another thing you'll notice when you enter the garden are the trees.
    These trees grow fruit that Chao like to eat. 
    To get fruit from the tree, walk up to it and press the Action Button
    when the words in the corner of the screen says "Touch". Hold it down,
    and press the Control Stick in any direction to start shaking the tree.

    Eventually, some fruit will fall, and you can now pick it up and give it
    to your Chao.  The fruit already found in the garden will raise stamina,
    but there are other kinds of fruit you can give your Chao. These will be
    explained later.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (c) Raising Stats
    
    One of the main aspects of Chao raising is getting it's stats up so it
    can race, and now in this Game Cube version of SA2, fight against other
    Chao in Chao Karate. 

    When you pick your Chao up or give it an item, you'll see a box appear
    with your Chao's name, and level for each stat. 
    Example:
                      ________________
     Chao's Name --> |     Zingy      |
                     |Swim       0558 |  
                     |Lv.24========== |
            Stat --> |Fly        0239 | <-- Stat Points
      Stat Level --> |Lv.19========== | <-- Stat Bar (there are 10 small  
                     |Run        0440 |     bars here, when all of them
                     |Lv.29========== |     are filled, that stat's level
                     |Power      0340 |     will increase by 1, and the
                     |Lv.19========== |     point number will increase.)
                     |Stamina    0700 |
                     |Lv.31========== |
                      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

    There are a few ways to increase your Chao's stats:

    - Chao Drives:
     These are colored tubes that will raise one particular stat. You can find
     them in the action stages of the game from the G.U.N. robots.
       
     Here are the stats that each color of drive raises:
     
     Green:   Run
     Purple:  Fly
     Red:     Power
     Yellow:  Swim
    
     Each drive given to your Chao will raise 2-3 bars.

   - Animals:
    These little guys can alter multiple stats when given to your Chao, and
    usually give it a body part resembling that animal (i.e., colorful tail 
    from the peacock, and striped paws from the tiger). You can find these
    wandering around the action stages, and in Eggman's robots.

    Animals have, as you may have noticed, different colored borders. 
    Like the drives, these colors represent the stat which that animal will
    raise best.  

     Stat Chart
     A positive number means that this stat will be raised by that number of 
     bars, while a negative number decreases. Two dashes indicate no change.

     Note: these may not be 100% accurate, as sometimes the amount differs
     by one point.

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
     
     Also, I tested these (about 10 of each animal) on an adult Normal Chao, 
     and I'm not sure yet if evolution path alters the amount. If anyone
     can help out there, that'd be great. :)
 
   - Fruit:
    Different fruit can also affect different stats. You can buy different
    fruit from the Black Market with the rings you collect in the action
    stages. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (e) Breeding

    After a while, your chao may sit down with a circle of flowers around it.
    This means your Chao is in it's mating season.  Bring another adult Chao
    (it must have evolved once) next to it, and if they like each other 
    enough, they'll do a cute little dance, and a new Chao egg will appear!  
    Note: If both Chao are in their mating season, they will mate no matter 
    what.  Give them a heart fruit to make an adult Chao enter it's mating
    season.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (d) Death and Rebirth

    When your Chao grows old, it'll form another coccoon, as if it were 
    evolving. Only this time, your Chao will not come back. :(
    However, it may leave an egg if you treated it well enough in it's 
    previous life. When that egg hatches, you'll notice it has the same name
    (if any) you'd given it. Your Chao has been reborn!  These rebirths are
    important, especially if you wish to get some of the cooler Chao in the
    game. :)

=============================================================================
 [3] Animal Locations         
=============================================================================

    Thanks to Matt (baritonedude@yahoo.com) for taking the time to type this 
    section up for me.  All is left unaltered, with the exception of 
    formatting and a few spelling errors.  Below this is a chart of which
    animals can be found in each level. ^_^

    Please note that these aren't the only way of getting animals for your
    Chao, and possibly not even the easiest way.  I'm not going to accept
    any more submissions for these, as there are too many locations. :)

    HOW THE STRATEGY WORKS
    Begin a level and then perform the given strategy to get the desired
    animal.  Then simply pause and exit the level and reenter it.  Repeat
    this process until you have the desired number of animals (you can
    only carry with you 10 animals and/or drives per hero/dark side).
    Please note, that any rings you acquire in this process are NOT saved
    to your ring total.  A majority of the game is required to have been
    completed as well as some upgrades.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Bat
    Level: Sand Ocean (Robotnik/Eggman)
    Strategy:
    Walk towards the camera and drop to the platform below.  Go to the
    left for the bat.

    Esitmated time: 5 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Bear/Ram
    Level: Sky Rail (Shadow)
    Strategy:
    Both animals are in the same area, so I've combined them into one 
    section. After going down the rail you start on, land on the lower
    platform with the bouncy spring.  Near it is the Ram.  If you take the 
    bouncy spring to the upper ledge, the bear is walking between some pole 
    things on the immediate right of where you should land by taking the
    spring.

    Estimated time: 12-20 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Boar
    Level: Radical Highway (Shadow)
    Strategy:

    Just before taking the boosters that take you through the first set of loops,
    jump onto the yellow trashcan-like structure for the boar.

    Estimated time: 20-35 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Cheetah
    Level: Wild Canyon (Knuckles)
    Strategy:
    Yet another simple animal to get.  Get off the starting platform and run
    to the back of the room.  To the left is a statue and at it's feet is the
    cheetah.

    Estimated time: 10-18 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Condor
    Level: Eternal Engine (Tails)
    Strategy:
    Yet another simple animal to get.  The condor is under the red 
    cylindrical canister on the left side of the starting room.

    Estimated time: 3-5 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Dragon
    Level: Wild Canyon (Knuckles)
    Strategy:
    Snag a few rings, then jump into the blowing air.  Fly up then glide
    towards the lonely statue area.  Climb above his head and dig into the
    beetle/oval shaped area of the painting.  You will now go to a separate
    room with an altar.  Climb the wall--the dragon is in the upper corner
    of one of them.

    Estimated time: 40-60 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Gorilla
    Level: Mission Street (Tails)
    Strategy:
    Take out the robots in the starting area, then whistle at the
    mailbox (it is red) to the right.

    Estimated time: 5-10 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Half Fish
    Level: Egg Quarters (Rouge)
    Strategy:
    This one requires a little practice on picking up bombs.  Try testing
    prior to attempting this level by picking up chao fruits and then
    setting them down.  Mastery of this will make the process of this
    strategy much faster.

    Begin by going to the left of the start of the level into the room with
    the snake altar and several pillars.  Run to the back of the room
    where you will find a cage with the half fish in it.

    Here's where it gets interesting.  Climb the pillar with the Kiki
    monkey robot on it.  When you're at the edge stay there and let the
    monkey robot look at you for a bit.  When it creates a bomb, jump off
    of the pillar.  It should throw the bomb at you.  Now, run to the
    bomb, stop movement completely, then hit 'B' to grab it.  If the bomb
    hasn't been on the ground for too long it should stay in your hands.
    Please note, that what carrying a bomb it will NOT explode until you
    throw or drop it.  When you get a bomb in your hands place it in front
    of the cage and then immediately run out of the immediate vicinity of
    the bomb.  Once the cage is blown away grab the half fish.

    If the kiki closest to the cage accidentally kills itself, or if you
    kill it, restart the level.  Its much easier to use that kiki.  Also,
    if the security beetle robot enters the room, stand in the shaded area
    by the pillar to avoid being caught.

    Estimated time: 30-45 seconds if you can quickly get a bomb
		          1-2 minutes if you have bomb difficulty

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Parrot
    Level: Security Hall (Rouge)
    Strategy:

    Run down the path towards the spikey robot, and take a left.  Climb
    onto the huge black crate and take the bouncy red spring between two
    gray crates.  From here jump and glide from the platform you land on
    and fly to the left (assuming you were facing away from the wall on the
    platform).  Glide to the large grayish crate with a computer on it and
    get the parrot.

    Estimated time: 20-30 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Peacock
    Level: Dry Lagoon (Rouge)
    Strategy:
    Look around one of the palm trees in the small lagoon  (starting area).
    its location is to the left relative starting plaform.

    Estimated time: 10-20 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Penguin
    Level: Metal Harbor (Sonic)
    Strategy:
    After going through the first loop and being launched off the ramp,
    the penguin is to your left on the platform you land on.

    Estimated time: 15-20 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Phoenix
    Level: Weapons Bed (Robotnik/Eggman)
    Strategy:

    This is the longest of the animals to get.  Even though it takes a lot
    of time to complete this strategy, you do get two phoenix as well as
    several other animals and drives.  You must get all three chao crates
    to get phoenix #1.

    Begin by getting the chao crate at the end of the first aircraft carrier 
    (the one you start the level on).  it is next to the last garage and is 
    fairly easy to find.

    The second chao crate is on the second carrier.  Towards the end are
    a few cylindrical tanks on the right. The crate is near them.

    The third is on the third carrier.  First begin by taking out any of
    the hawk and beetle robots that fire bombs from the ground.  Then
    grab the lift and take out the hovering ones.  Glide from the lift
    towards the cylindrical tanks at the end of the carrier.  On top of
    the larger one is the first phoenix.  By this point you should have
    gotten the two other chao crates.  Get off the tank then walk behind
    it (towards the edge of the carrier) for the last crate.  It will
    contain a phoenix if you got the other two crates.

    Estimated time: 4:10-5:00

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Rabbit
    Level: Cosmic Wall (Robotnik/Eggman)
    Strategy:
    From the start, go to the right of the black crates.

    Estimated time: 4-5 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Raccoon
    Level: Mad Space (Rouge)
    Strategy:
    The gray crate directly in front of you at the start of the level
    contains a raccoon.

    Estimated time: 2-3 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Seal
    Level: Weapons Bed (Robotnik/Eggman)
    Strategy:
    At the end of the first (starting) carrier there is an animal pipe
    between a couple cylindrical structures that contains a seal.

    Estimated time: 15-25 seconds
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Sea Otter
    Level: Prison Lane (Tails)
    Strategy:
    Another fairly simple process for two otters. Destroy all the beetle
    robots in the first room (don't forget the one way up high that you
    can hit by getting on the raising platform) to upen the gate to a pipe.
    Whistle and the first otter will come out.  Note: sometimes I've had a
    sheep come out instead.

    The second otter is after the first hall. Blast the silver crate
    under the black crate to create a staircase.  Get to the top, hover to
    the roof of the caged in area, and get the second otter.

    Estimated time: 30-45 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Animal: Skeleton Dog
    Level: Pumpkin Hill (Knuckles)
    Strategy:
    Jump and glide into the red balloon, giving you an extra height boost.
    Continue gliding to the left until you land on the platform with a
    rocket on it.  Take the rocket to the top of Church Mountain.  The
    skeleton dog is among the graves and is pretty easy to see on your
    descent from the rocket.

    Estimated time: 8-12 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Skunk
    Level: Hidden Base (Tails)
    Strategy:
    This one is simple.  Just walk to the right on the starting platform.
    It's that easy.

    Estimated time: 1-3 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Tiger
    Level: Hidden Base (Tails)
    Strategy:
    After getting down from the starting platform, take out the hawk
    (bombing) robot and proceed to hover to the angled red platform with a
    crate on it.  Blow up the crate as well as the hawk robot, and take the
    tiger.

    Estimated time: 20 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Animal: Unicorn
    Level: Dry Lagoon (Rouge)
    Strategy:
    Begin by grabbing a couple of rings, then taking out the two robots
    aimed at the turtle.  Grab one of the chaos drives they drop
    (preferably a red, assuming they drop one - this is to make up
    for the unicorn's lack of providing a power ugrade).  Take the turtle
    to the big lagoon, get on the lower central platform with the pillar.
    Get into the center of the platform and whistle-revealing the unicorn.

    Estimated time: 30-45 seconds

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now you shouldn't have any problems getting the animals you want/need,
    as long as you have the levels open and the necessary tech upgrades.
    If you're looking to create an ultimate chao (Angel, Devil, Chaos), here 
    is a supplementary checklist so you don't end up giving them the wrong 
    animal.

=============================================================================
 [4] Growth and Evolution               
=============================================================================
    As Chao grow older, they'll evolve into different types of Chao, which
    alters both thier appearance and abilities. I'll try to provide some
    insight to some of the different paths your Chao can take. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (a) Normal Chao
 
    These are Chao that are neither Hero or Dark (and can race in all races),
    an`d can be gotten by raising it equally by both Hero and Dark side 
    characters. Keep an eye on it's color when it's a child, and don't let it
    get too light or dark colored, and you should be fine. ^_^

   - Evolution Paths

    1st Evolution:
    
    Running Chao:   Give your Chao mostly Green-colored animals. It'll
                    form Sonic-like quills when it evolves!

    Flying Chao:    Give your Chao mostly purple-colored animals. It's
                    head will look as if your Chao were wearing a
                    jester hat, and look alot like NiGHTS. ^_^

    Swimming Chao:  Give your Chao mostly yellow-colored animals. It's
                    head will be horizontally longer, and have fins of
                    sorts on the side, making it look like a strange
                    fish. :)

    Power Chao:     Give your Chao mostly red-colored animals. It's 
                    head becomes horizontally longer, kind of like 
                    a spike.
      
    Normal Chao:    Don't specialize in any certain kind. Looks just
                    like a newly-hatched Chao, only bigger.
     
    2nd Evolution:
     
    After a Chao comes from it's first coccoon, you can begin to help it
    evolve even more. The changes are gradual, and it may take a bit of
    patience, but the end result is often worth the time and effort. :)
    Please note that these changes are gradual, and the Chao will *not*
    form another coccoon, unless it is dying.  Also, there is no certain
    time or amount of drives and animals to do this.  Just keep at it, 
    and eventually you'll get the Chao you've wanted.
     

    If you have a Normal Chao:
 
    Running:    Green drives and animals. Tip of Chao's head will
                grow longer.
 
    Flying:     Purple drives and animals. Tip of Chao's head will
                curl a bit.

    Swimming:   Yellow drives and animals. Tip of Chao's head will
                curl forward.

    Power:      Red drives and animals. Tip of Chao's head will 
                split in two, looking like horns.


    If you have a Running Chao:
     
    Running:    Green drives and animals. Chao will resemble Sonic. :)
   
    Flying:     Purple drives and animals. Chao's spines and toes will curl
                upward.

    Swimming:   Yellow drives and animals.  I haven't gotten a chance to get 
                one of these yet, if anyone could help me here, that'd be
                great. 

    Power:      Red drives and animals. Chao's hands become larger, and it's
                quills begin to turn upward.

    If you have a Flying Chao:

    Running:    Green rives and animals. The "horns" will curl, and the Chao
                will almost resemble a ram.

    Flying:     Purple drives and animals. Your Chao will resemble NiGHTS! :)

    Swimming:   Yellow drives and animals. Chao's "horns" grow longer, and 
                it's arms will look much like flippers.

    Power:      Red drives and animals. Chao's "horns" curl upward.


    If you have a Swimming Chao:
    
    Running:   Green drives and animals. Chao's head will become shorter.

    Flying:    Purple drives and animals.Chao's head curls upward.

    Swimming:  Yellow drives and animals. Chao's ears become very large.
    
    Power:    Red drives and animals. Chao looks as if you've been feeding it
              too many fruits. ;)


    If you have a Power Chao:
    
    Running:   Green drives and animals. Chao's spike curls downward.

    Flying:    Purple drives and animals. I haven't gotten a chance to get 
               one of these yet, if anyone could help me here, that'd be
               great. ^_^

    Swimming:  Yellow drives and animals. I haven't gotten a chance to get 
               one of these yet, if anyone could help me here, that'd be
               great. ^_^
    
    Power:     Red drives and animals. Chao becomes darker in color.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (b) Hero Chao
    
    You can get a Hero Chao by raising a child Chao with mostly Hero side 
    characters. You'll notice a difference in color, and two antenna - like
    growths from it's head. If your Chao starts looking like that, you're on
    the path to getting a Hero Chao, and if you haven't already, the Hero
    Garden!

   - Evolution Paths

    1st Evolution:    

    Hero Running Chao:  Give your Chao mostly Green-colored animals. Chao has 
                        a single antenna, and is white and blue in color.

    Hero Flying Chao:   Give your Chao mostly Purple-colored animals. Chao 
                        will have two feather-like objects on it's head, and 
                        be white and purple in color.

    Hero Swimming Chao: Give your Chao mostly Yellow-colored animals. Chao 
                        will look like it has long years, and be white and 
                        green.

    Hero Power Chao:    Give your Chao mostly Red-colored animals. Chao will
                        grow spike-like objects on it's head, and be white 
                        and pink (with spots ^_^) in color.
  
    Hero Normal Chao:   Don't specialize in any certain color. Chao will 
                        have the antenna-like growths as mentioned above, and 
                        look just like the Hero Chao pictured in the manual.:)


    2nd Evolution:      

    After a Chao comes from it's first coccoon, you can begin to help it
    evolve even more. The changes are gradual, and it may take a bit of
    patience, but the end result is often worth the time and effort. :)
    Please note that these changes are gradual, and the Chao will *not*
    form another coccoon, unless it is dying.  Also, there is no certain
    time or amount of drives and animals to do this.  Just keep at it, 
    and eventually you'll get the Chao you've wanted.

    Hero Chao evolutions coming soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (c) Dark Chao

    You can get a Dark Chao by raising a child Chao with mostly Dark side 
    characters (Shadow, Rouge, and Eggman). You'll notice a difference in 
    color, and the tip of your Chao's head will zig-zag a bit, and its wings
    will start to resemble those of a bat's. If your Chao starts looking like 
    that, you're on the path to getting a Dark Chao, and if you haven't 
    already, the Dark Garden!

    Dark Running Chao:  Give your Chao mostly Green-colored animals. Chao 
                        will get green spines that resemble Shadow.

    Dark Flying Chao:   Give your Chao mostly Purple-colored animals. Chao
                        becomes a dark blue color, and has what looks to be
                        a jester cap on it's head.

    Dark Swimming Chao: Give your Chao mostly Yellow-colored animals. Looks
                        identical to a normal Swimming Chao, only different 
                        in color.

    Dark Power Chao:    Give your Chao mostly Red-colored animals. Chao's
                        head will have a spike, and be red and black in 
                        color.

    Dark Normal Chao:   Don't specialize in any certain color. Tip of  the 
                        Chao's head will zig-zag, and it's wings will look 
                        like those of a bat's.


    2nd Evolution:  

    After a Chao comes from it's first coccoon, you can begin to help it
    evolve even more. The changes are gradual, and it may take a bit of
    patience, but the end result is often worth the time and effort. :)
    Please note that these changes are gradual, and the Chao will *not*
    form another coccoon, unless it is dying.  Also, there is no certain
    time or amount of drives and animals to do this.  Just keep at it, 
    and eventually you'll get the Chao you've wanted.    

    If you have a Dark Running Chao:

    Running:   Green drives and animals.  The Shadow Chao.  The markings on
               it's quills will turn red.

               others go down.  Chao has a nifty blue color. :)

               and ball-like.  Bright purple markings on tips of arms, feet,
               and head.

    Flying:    Purple drives and animals.  Zig-zags at tips of the Chao's 
               head are more exaggerated.  Light purple and pink markings on 
               tips of arms, feet, and head.

    Swimming:  Yellow drives and animals.  Tips of the Chao's head become thin
               and curl downward, looking like ears.  Purple and light blue
               markings on tips of arms, feet, and head.
  
    Power:     Red drives and animals.  Tips of Chao's head curl upward and

               zig-zag to it.  Also appears to have fins on the side of it's
               head.

 (d) Special Chao

    There are several special Chao you can obtain, and are considerably 
    difficult to get. There is one kind of special Chao for Normal, Hero, and
    Dark Chao, those being:

    Light Chaos Chao

    Resembles Chaos 0 from Sonic Adventure.

    First, your Chao must have been reborn twice, and on it's third life. 
    You must now give it one (and only one) of each animal (see above for a 
    list), including the Ghost and Legendary types. It's best that you keep a
    checklist, just in case you might miss or give more than one of an animal.
    Once you've done this, feed your Chao a Chao fruit, which you can buy from
    the Black Market (more on that later).  

    
    Angel Chao
   
    A very cute Hero Chao with long ears. Is pinkish in color.

    Devil Chao
 
    As it's name implies, it looks like a little devil. :)

    These Chao do not die of old age, unlike other Chao. I'm sure they may 
    die if mistreated, however. But you wouldn't do that, right?  o.o; 


=============================================================================
 [5] - The Chao Kindergarten
=============================================================================
    You can do alot of things at the Kindergarten, Such as giving your Chao a
    name, checking it's health, and buying & selling items for your Chao. 
    I will cover each section in the area, starting with...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (a) The Fortune-Telling House

    This is where you can name your Chao. There are two ways of doing this:
    First, the "Fortune Teller" will suggest a random name for your Chao; 
    this is good for those who are stuck on thinking of a good name on their
    own. 

    If you don't like the name, choose "No", and you'll be given another
    choice as to if you want a different name.  Choose "Yes", and another
    random name will be given. 

    If you Choose "No", you'll get the chance to name the Chao yourself. If 
    you wish to do this, select "Yes". If not, select "No" to exit the Fortune-
    Telling House.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (b) Health Center

    Here you can check your Chao's health, among other things.

    Select "See the Doctor" to check on your Chao's current condition.
    
    Select "Medical Chart" to see a chart with your Chao's name, Ability 
    type, and statistics, much like the box that appears whengiving your Chao
    an iten, with letter grades next to each one. These represent how well 
    that certain attribute grows, 'S' being the best, and 'E' being worst
    (S, A, B, C, D, E). You can raise that grade by improving your Chao's
    ability in that area.

    Move the control stick to the right (or use the R button) to see another
    chart, this one with a yellow background, and listing your Chao's unique
    personality (I have one that says "Big Eater" there, and sure enough, he
    loves to eat, and always does so as if he were starving, with the 
    exaggerated movements ^_^), Favorite fruit, Age, the number of times your
    Chao had transformed (rebirth), and it's current condition.

    Move the control stick to the right again (or use the R button) to see
    a red-colored chart listing your Chao's racing and Karate records. 
    The Racing area will show the medals and such that Chao has won, and
    the Karate area will show a Win/Loss/Draw record, as well as it's rank.

    Selecting "Cancel" will return you to the main area of the Kindergarten.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (c) Principal's Office

    Not much here, just a small help section. 
    
    Choose "Tips" to see a list of various topics, and select the one you'd
    like to know about. You'll get a brief explanation about the topic you 
    selected.
 
    Choose "EXIT", to, eh, exit. ^_^;

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (d) Classroom

   Aw! listen to the cute singing Chao! Here you can leave your Chao to learn
   different abilities, like playing a musical instrument and dancing.

   You can leave up to four Chao at a time, but you cannot get your Chao back
   until it has learned that lesson. If there is an 'X' next to your Chao's
   name, it is still learning. Try playing a few stages and coming back.
   If there is a circle, your Chao has learned that ability, and will use
   it randomly in the garden. If you have several Chao with different 
   abilities, they'll interact with eachother.
   For example, one Chao will play a trumpet, and another Chao may join in
   with a tambourine, and maybe yet another Chao will join in with another
   instrument, and some will begin dancing. Others may sit and watch, and
   even clap afterwards. ^_^

 (f) Black Market

    Here you can buy various items for your Chao, such as fruit, seeds, and
    even hats with the rings you've collected in the action stages. Rarer
    items will only appear when you get more emblems, though!

   - Eggs

    These are special Chao eggs you can get, and are no different from 
    normal Chao, with the only exception being color. Colored Chao can still
    be raised to be a Hero, Dark, or any other Chao. :)

   - Fruit
    
    You can also buy special fruit from the Black Market. Unlike the
    fruit readily available from the trees in the gardens, these can
    boost other stats, as well as other things. :)

    Fruit Lists (in order by cost)
    I will have a list of what each fruit improves shortly. For now,
    though, this will list each fruit, the cost, and description. 
    
    These may be incomplete, as for now, these are the only ones I've
    seen. If you can verify any different ones, let me know. :)
    
    Special fruit:
     _______________________________________________________________
    | Item        | Cost | Description                              |

    | Dark fruit  |  120 | Dark trait fruit. Helps Chao favor the   |

    |             |      | game, Chao gains 2x the stamina a normal |
    |             |      | fruit would give you.                    |

   - Seeds:

    Seeds can be planted in the garden, and once grown, they will grow 
    certain fruit.

    To plant a seed: 
    First, make sure your Chao has won both the shovel and watering
    can from the Crab Pool and Stump Valley races. Give the seed to 
    that Chao, and it should walk around looking for a place to plant
    it. once it does that, you can watch it dig the hole, put the 
    seed in, water it, and dance. After all this, a tree will begin to
    grow. :) 
    
    Seed List:

    This list may be incomplete, as for now, these are the only ones I've
    seen. If you can verify any different ones, let me know. :)
     _____________________________________________________________
    | Item           | Cost | Description                         |
    | Tasty seed     |  200 | This is a regular tree seed.        |
    | Round seed     |  300 | Grows a tree with round fruits.     |
    | Square seed    |  300 | Grows a tree with square fruits.    |

    | Hero seed      |  400 | Grows a tree with hero fruits.      |
    | Strong seed    |  500 | This is a long life tree seed.      |

   - Hats
    The Black Market also sells various objects your Chao can wear on 
    it's head. To enable a Chao to do this, it must have had at least
    one Skeleton Dog given to it. Also, some Chao won't wear one no
    matter what you try. The hats can make your Chao look very cool,
    or silly, depending on what you have it wear. ;)

    Also keep in mind that the only way I know of to remove a hat is
    to hit your Chao. :(  

    Again, this list may be incomplete, as for now, these are the only 
    ones I've seen. If you can verify any others, let me know. :)

    The first three are not sold in the Black Market, but can be 
    obtained for free. You can also sell these to the B.M. for a quick
    50 rings.

   - Special

    There are also special things you can get eventually, such as menu 
    themes!  These may take a while to get, as they didn't appear for
    me until I had around 103 emblems...

    As with the others, this may not be (and probably right now isn't)
    complete. Any verification on other items would be helpful.
     _______________________________________________
    | Item            | Cost  | Description         |
    | Omochao's Theme | 10000 | Omochao menu voice. |

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Also, a rumored Maria Theme.  I will not be adding that officially
    until I can verify it myself, or am sent visual proof that it exists.

    - Selling Items

    There's another way to get rings for the things you want to buy, and 
    that's selling items found in the garden. Egg shells are gotten once
    a Chao of the specified color is hatched. Items like the Pumpkin and
    Skull are found by digging in the garden with either Knuckles or Rouge.
    Below is a list of things you can sell, along with the amount of rings 
    you can get from it:


     ________________________________
    | Item                   | Rings |
    | Fruit                  |    10 |

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Obviously incomplete, as I haven't gotten a chance to test other egg 
    colors and items as of yet.

 [6] - Chao Stadium
=============================================================================

    See that cave under the waterfall in the normal garden? That's the 
    entrance to the Chao Stadium, where your Chao can compete against other 
    Chao to win medals, gems, toys, and even emblems :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (a) Racing

    Contrary to the name, Chao racing does not only rely on your Chao's 
    speed, but also all of it's other abilities, even luck and intelligence.

   - Course/Prize List

    Challenge Races:

    Unlike the toys won in the Beginner and Jewel races, these stay in the

    You get a prize when each row of races is completed.
    
    Row 1 races:

    Gold & Silver Chao
    Chacron Returns!
    Omochao race
    Small Animals

    Prize for completing row 1 is a ball. Sometimes if you throw it,

    Cockroach Chao
    Walking Eggs!
    Skull Chao
    Pumpkin Chao

    the garden.  This time, there are only four races, and you'll get a prize
    after completing the second and last races. The prizes listed here go to 
    the Hero garden.

    2nd Race:  Ball
    Last Race: Rocking Horse


    Dark Races: 

    Much like the Challenge races, you'll recieve a prize that remains in

    after completing the second and last races. The prizes listed here go to 
    the Dark garden.

    2nd Race:  Ball
    Last Race: Radio
     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (b) Chao Karate
    Here you can have your Chao fight against other Chao. The rules are 
    simple:
    
    The first Chao to either lose all of it's stamina or fall off the stage
    loses. In the case of time running out, the Chao with the most stamina
    remaining wins.
   
    Each statistic has a new meaning in Chao karate:
    
    Defemse is determined by your Chao's swim stat.
    Stealth is determined by the fly stat.
    Speed is determined by it's run stat.
    Power is about the only one that remains the same. :P
    Finally, it's health is determined by stamina.

    At the bottom of the screen there is a small meter with hearts on it.
    When this starts getting low, your Chao will become discouraged and will
    sit down, and possibly sleep. During this time, hit the 'A' button as 
    quickly as you can to recharge the meter and get your Chao back into the 
    fight! Your Chao is very vulnerable to attack when discouraged, so be
    careful!

    There are three Karate competitions to start: Beginner, Standard, and 
    Expert. The Super level becomes available when all three of those have
    been completed. The prize for completing each one is an emblem, and an
    improved rank for your Chao's karate record. :)

=============================================================================
 [7] - Chao Transporter
=============================================================================
    This is where the Game Boy Advance linking capabilities come in. :)
    To access the Chao transporter, look for a machine in the garden with a
    large GBA on it, and step on the big red button. You'll be taken to a
    menu with several options:

    - Drop off:  You can transport your Chao to your GBA. To do so, you must 
                 be holding your Chao when you hit the button. Select this, 
                 and you'll see a screen showing if a GBA is connected to 
                 your Game Cube. Make sure the power to your GBA is turned
                 on, and it should appear on the screen. Select it, and your
                 Chao will be transported to the Tiny Garden. Note that a
                 Sonic Advance cartridge is not required for this, but is
                 needed/recommended if you want to take your Chao with you,
                 as you cannot save any changes made to the Chao in the Tiny
                 Garden otherwise. More on the Tiny Garden later.

    - Pick up:   Pick up Chao, items, and even rings collected from the Tiny
                 Garden. Simply select what you want out, and select "Pick
                 up". ^_^

    - Move:      Allows you to move a Chao to a different memory card.
 
    - Good-bye:  Send your Chao to live the rest of it's life in a far away
                 forest. Once you do this, you'll never see it again, and
                 there is no way of getting it back. :( 

    - Quit:      Exits the Transporter.

 [7] - Tiny Garden
=============================================================================
    If you have a Game Boy Advance, and the GBA to GC link cable, you can 
    raise your Chao there. There are some advantages in doing this, such as
    the types of fruit you can get, some which aren't normally available 
    through the Black Market.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (a) Item Shop

    To access the store, press the 'L' button. To buy an item, put the 
    cursor over it and press 'A'.

    - Fruit:  Alter statistics. Some fruit have different effects on certain
              stats. 

    Fruit List (in order of appearance): 

    I know these fruit have actual names, I just can't remember them from the
    DC version/Chao Adventure 2. If anyone can find out the names of these,
    please let me know!

    Thanks to Shadowman22 for some of the stat information. :)

    - Eggs:  Much like the GC Black Market, you can purchase colored Chao 
             eggs. There seem to be eggs you can only get here...

    Egg List (in order by cost)
    
    I've yet to test all of these out to see what each looks like in the GC
    gardens, again, any help would be great. :)

    - Toys:  There are several toys you can eventually buy for the Tiny 
             Garden for your Chao.
      

    Trumpet:     Hand it to your Chao, and it will play the trumpet. You may 
                 notice it getting better at it, too. Costs 1000 rings.

    Duck:        A big toy duck that floats in the pond.  Chao may be able to
                 ride it... Costs 2000 rings.

    Television:  A T.V. for the Tiny Garden. Costs 8000 rings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (b) Mini Games

    One way to earn rings (and the only way if you don't have a Sonic Advance
    cart) for the Tiny Garden is to play one of the two mini games.

    - Janken
    A version of Janken (or rock, paper, scissors), you must eliminate the 
    rotating symbols on the board with it's superior (rock beats scissors,
    scissors beats paper, paper beats rock) by sending the selected symbol
    upward, aiming for the desired block. There is a time limit, and if the
    board is cleared, more will appear, and 10 seconds will be added to the
    remaining time.

    - Card Match
    Simply try to memorize the cards' locations, and match them. The Chao'll
    walk around the board a bit, sometimes moving a few cards with it. Be
    careful!

    
=============================================================================
 [9] - Frequent Questions
=============================================================================
    This section is to answer the questions about Chao that seem to be asked
    most often. Most answers, however, will refer you to another section of 
    the guide.  Here they are:

   - Q:  How do I pronounce "Chao"?
     A:  Chao is said like the word "chow". Also, it's plural form remains the 
         same, i.e.: "I have five Chao."

   - Q:  How do I name my Chao?
     A:  Take it to the Fortune-Telling House (which, incidentally, does not
         tell fortunes :P).  See section 5-a: Fortune-Telling House for more
         information.

   - Q:  How can I plant the seeds?
     A:  To plant a seed: 
         First, make sure your Chao has won both the shovel and watering
         can from the Crab Pool and Stump Valley races. Give the seed to 
         that Chao, and it should walk around looking for a place to plant
         it. once it does that, you can watch it dig the hole, put the 
         seed in, water it, and dance. After all this, a tree will begin to
         grow. :)
 
   - Q:  My Chao lost it's legs! How can I get them back?
     A:  The loss of legs on a Chao (making it a "Ghost Chao") is caused by 
         giving it a bat. To get them back, give your Chao a few Skeleton
         Dogs until they come back. Any other animal that randomly alters
         legs will work, as well.
 
   - Q:  How do I get a [Chaos/Devil/Angel] Chao?
     A:  See section 4-d: Special Chao.

   - Q:  Where can I find (animal)?
     A:  I will hopefully get more of this information up soon, but for those
         of you looking for Skeleton Dogs, try Pumpkin Hill. For Sea Creatures,
         try the third Chao Box in the same level. :)  Look in section 3 for
         at least one location walkthrough for each type of animal.

   - Q:  What's a good way to collect rings for the Black Market?
     A:  The generally-accepted best way is to play through City Escape, 
         Mission 3 ("Find the lost Chao!"). Only, skip picking up the Chao
         and proceed to the end of the level, where the "Back" ring is. Hit
         this, and you'll be sent to the start of the level, with the rings 
         reset, and whatever amount you had still there. Repeat this until
         you've collected the desired amount (maximum is 999), then pick up
         the lost Chao to end the level and add a good sum of rings to your
         total.
           There's also a cheat of sorts, for those of you with minimal
         patience:  Buy an item from the Black Market, put it in one of the
         gardens, and Save & Exit.  Reenter the garden, get your item, and
         take it back to the Black Market. Sell it, and reset the game
         when you return to the main kindergarten.  Go back to the garden,
         and the item should still be there, and any rings gained from
         selling it the previous time should still be in your total.  
         Repeat this until you get the amount of rings you want. ^^

   - Q:  What's "Chao Adventure 2", and how do I get it?
     A:  Chao Adventure 2 was a mini-game on the Dreamcast version of Sonic
         Adventure 2, accessed through the VMU. It was a simple game of your
         Chao walking around various places, set on various quests (i.e.: 
         collecting items for Omochao, taking pictures, going to the dentist),
         and if successful, you'd aquire a seed. This was the only way to get
         the various fruit and such in the game besides the normal garden 
         fruit, and was quite boring, with the exeption of some of the bizarre
         things your Chao would say; Mine once declared that it found Eggman's
         flea powder (!?), then proceeded to eat it. o.O;  In short, you're not 
         missing much. :P
