    1.0     Introduction to the FAQ
    Hello and welcome to my FAQ.
    I hope that you find this FAQ informative and useful when raising 
    your Chao, and I hope that you enjoy it, and take the time to read 
    it, as I spent a huge amount of time preparing it, writing it, and 
    doing the research needed to make it.
    I hope it helps you to get a better understanding of Chao, and
    above all, I hope you have fun raising your Chao, as they can be a
    very satisfying pass-time. :)
         1.1     Important notices
    1 - finalchao decided to quit helping me with the FAQ, and
    the parts he wrote, since they belonged to him, have been
    removed and re-written, as I don't have permission to use 
    them. I have re-written the Tiny Chao Garden and all other
    sections that finalchao wrote myself, so that I'm not 
    stealing his work.
    2 - If I haven't replied to any e-mails you've sent me recently, 
    it's because I've been pretty busy. If you haven't recieved a
    reply to any of your Chao-related e-mails, please resend them
    and I'll do my best to respond. Also, if I haven't been on
    MSN Messenger recently, it's because my yodathesoldier account
    has decided it no longer works on MSN, so either use AIM, or
    just send an e-mail to yodathesoldier@hotmail.com.
    3 - I've ended up recieving a few viruses from random people from
    time to time. I can't stress this enough - PLEASE don't put
    my address in your address books. It usually means any viruses
    you recieve, I end up recieving, and deleting them all can be
    a hassle. Don't worry if I'm in any of your address books and
    fear you may have unintenionally sent me a virus, none of them
    actually have any affect because I simply don't open them.
    Like I said, it's just a hassle having to delete a bunch of
    virus e-mails from my inbox every few days.
    4 - People, I cannot stress this enough.
    For the love of god READ the FAQ BEFORE asking me questions.
    Recently I've found myself having to simply copy/paste parts
    of the FAQ into replies to answer questions.
    I did all the hard work so you could simply hit CTRL+F and
    find everything you need. If it's not in the FAQ, e-mail me,
    that's why I included my e-mail in the FAQ. But if I recieve
    any e-mails about "OMG WUT'S THAT EGG AROUND MY CHOA IS HE
    T3H EVOLVING?!?!!!" or "My chao is DRAWING!! Why?! Is it 
    RARE?!" I will NOT answer them. 
    You can read, right? Please do so.
    5 - It's C-H-A-O. Not Choa. And the plural is "Chao". Not "Chaos".
    There were many Chao, and then SS67 got real angry at people
    calling them Choa or Chaos, so he KILLED all of the Chao.
    Also, I'm STILL receiving e-mail about Chao drawing.
    Please stop. I know Chao can draw/paint.
    Your Chao is not special because it can draw.
    Also: If you don't put a subject on your e-mail, I'm not
    going to open it. No subject = no open.
    6 - I've switched AIM and MSN addresses due to people bugging me.
    It was for Chao questions ONLY. I don't want to be your 
    friend. I don't want to know how you're so sad because you
    can't get a girlfriend or whatever.
    This goes for my email address, too.
    yodathesoldier@hotmail.com is for Chao questions ONLY.
    I have a separate email address for personal stuff, and
    no, I'm not telling you what it is, or what my AIM/MSN
    names are.
    And as always, put a subject like "Chao" or "SADX Chao FAQ"
    on your emails. 
    No subject = no open.
    No open = no reply.
    2.0     Frequently Asked Questions (Read first please!)
    (Please read this before e-mailing me questions. I wouldn’t want to 
    receive a question already answered in the FAQ)
    Q: How do I pronounce “Chao”?
    A: “Chow”
    Q: Why can’t my Chao swim?
    A: Your Chao doesn’t have enough “swim” points yet. It must have at
    least 100 before it can swim. To get swimming points for your Chao,
    give it animals that specifically increase swimming stats, like seals,
    or otters for example. (see animal list for more information)
    Q: My Chao doesn’t walk, it only crawls. How can I make it walk?
    A: Similar to the above answer. It needs over 100 “run” points.
    Q: Can I make my Chao have a certain facial expression?
    A: The answer to this isn’t really known. I believe it has 
    something to do with the hatching process, determined by how 
    long you hold/shake the egg, or whether you throw it at a wall 
    to hatch it etc.
    Many people have researched this before, and found that in some cases
    it can be affected by how close to the egg your character before it
    hatches. There is a section on facial expressions later in this FAQ.
    Q: Can I make my Chao more intelligent?
    A: The Mushrooms you can buy at the Black Market are known to improve
    Chao intelligence. Some animals are also believed to affect it.
    Q: How do I name my Chao now that the kindergarten is gone?
    A: Grab the Chao, jump on the Chao Transporter, and select ‘Name’.
    Q: How can I make my Chao wear a hat?
    A: Giving a Chao certain animals give it the ability to wear one of the
    many “hats” purchased from the Black Market. I’m pretty sure that
    peacocks give Chao that ability, as well as a few other animals. I will
    find out what animals have this attribute and make a note of them
    in a later update.
    (I recently received an e-mail stating that the three blue animals give
    chao the ability to wear hats. The animals are mole, koala, and skunk.
    Thanks to DOGUTCH@xxx.xxx [e-mail obscured for privacy reasons] for
    this information.
    Q: How can I remove my Chao's hat?
    A: The only way to take off a Chao's hat yourself is to beat or throw
    the Chao. The only other way is to wait for the Chao to remove it on 
    its own, which often takes a very long time.
    Q: How can I make a Chaos/NiGHTs/Sonic/Shadow etc Chao?
    A: See the special and Rare Chao section (section 8) of this FAQ.
    Q: Can I make my Chao fly?
    A: Yes, you can. Give it plenty of flying animals 
    (Parrots, Swallows, Peacocks) and it will eventually be able 
    to flap its wings and fly.
    Take your Chao to a high place and let it walk off.
    It may fall all the way, bounce high, and then fly after bouncing,
    but some Chao fall for a short distance and fly before hitting
    the ground. The large rocket shaped object in the Egg Carrier
    garden is a great place for getting Chao to fly.
    It may seem that you can't get up there with your Chao but you can.
    Place your Chao at the bottom of the rocket, whistle, and when it 
    starts to chase you, run/jump/fly up the rocket and wait at the 
    top for your Chao, then simply let it walk off to encourage it
    to fly.
    Q: When porting to SA2:B, my Chao lost it's animal parts.
    Why? Can I get them back?
    A: The reason your Chao lost its animal parts is because SA2:B
    doesn't recognise the animal parts from SADX, and vice versa.
    Yes, you can get your Chao's parts back, by porting it back through
    the GBA to SADX again.
    Q: My Chao is drawing pictures. Is it normal?
    Q: My Chao got a strange shape around him and when he came out he
    was different. What does it mean?!
    A: CTRL+F "Evolution" - Read it.
    Q: How do I remove animal parts from my Chao?
    A: In SADX, I don't think you can. Take them to SA2:B and get them
    some skeleton dogs. That's the only way I'm aware of.
    (E-mail me if you know any other ways)
    Q: My Chao trips often. How can I stop this?
    A: Your Chao's Luck level must be fairly low. Raise it by giving it
    Mushrooms and Gold-coloured animals.
    Q: Does time pass in the Chao garden when you are not there?
    A: No, it doesn't. When you aren't there, your Chao remain in stasis,
    so don't worry that your Chao will die or get hungry when you're not
    there to feed it.
    Also, when you're in one garden, time doesn't pass in the others, 
    More coming soon!
    If you have any more questions you would like to ask me, please send me
    an e-mail to yodathesoldier@hotmail.com and you should have your reply
    within a few days of your e-mail being received. :)
    With your permission, I would like to add your questions to this section
    of the FAQ.
         2.1     Tips, Hints and Extras
    Coming soon!
    If you have some helpful hints or tricks you use in any aspect of Chao 
    raising, please e-mail me with them, and I will add them to the FAQ 
    in a later update. :)
    3.0     Introduction to Chao
    Welcome to the colourful world of Chao! Come on in, make yourself 
    at home, and be careful not to sit on any eggs!
    The Chao Gardens
    The Chao Gardens are a Chao’s natural habitat. The Chao live 
    in these gardens in peace and harmony, far away from evil and 
    things with big, sharp, pointy teeth.
    When you enter your first Chao Garden, take a look around.
    You will find some eggs, a giant Game Boy Advance (The Chao
    Transporter), a pool or area of water for the Chao to swim in,
    some trees bearing fruit which can be shaken down for Chao to eat,
    and some general nice scenery.
    Chao Themselves
    After getting to know the garden, amble over to the eggs. You can
    either wait a few minutes for them to hatch naturally, or you can 
    speed things up by picking up the egg and rocking it for a minute 
    or two, then putting it back down, or simply by throwing it at the 
    wall, making it break. Either way, you now have a bundle of joy 
    known as a Chao!
    Chao need a lot of care and attention. They need to be fed regularly,
    be petted, picked up and carried, and generally well looked-after.
    You must pay attention to how your Chao is acting at all times.
    If your Chao is sat down, rubbing its eyes, it is upset. Chao usually
    only cry like this when they have been over-fed, making them bloated.
    It is common for Chao to do this when people are giving them fruit
    after fruit to try to force a fast evolution.
    If the Chao is sat down, rocking back and forth and staring at the
    ceiling, it is bored. To give it something to do, get some animals from
    the Adventure Mode, and enter the garden. Giving your Chao some of
    these animals enables it to sing, or dance. When Chao do this, other
    Chao in the garden often sit and watch, or join in. (Doing this can
    help make Chao become friends, but that is a more complicated side of
    Chao that I will talk about later in the FAQ.)
    4.0     Raising your Chao
    This section of the FAQ will give you a basic guide to raising a Chao,
    from birth till death. Remember that death isn’t always the end for a
    Chao - If you’ve raised it well, it will be reborn and will start its
    life over again.
         4.1     Hatching a Chao
    Hatching a Chao is probably one of the most simple and easy parts of
    raising a Chao, as you don’t even need to do anything, as eggs hatch on
    their own.
    You can do something if you want, though, by picking up the egg, and
    either rocking it or throwing it. Both ways speed up the process, but I
    suggest you only throw an egg if you’re in a “I want a Chao NOW”
    situation, as Chao hatched in this way are suspected to be less
    intelligent than Chao hatched in other ways.
    If you don’t want a Chao to hatch and you don’t want the egg, take it
    to the black market and sell it. Simple.
    If you don’t want a Chao to hatch, but want to keep the egg for a later
    date, you could leave the egg in the water, where it won’t hatch.
         4.2     Caring for your Chao
    Caring for your Chao is simple, or complicated, depending on how you
    want your Chao to grow up and evolve.
    If you just want ‘any old Chao’, then it’s simple, but if you want a
    special Chao, like a NiGHTs, or Chaos Chao, it’s a more complicated and
    strict process. I go into detail about special forms of Chao later in
    the FAQ.
    Raising ‘any old Chao’ is simple, due to the fact that you can give it
    any animal, or fruit you want, at any time.
    Simply buy something from the black market, or just shake fruit off the
    trees when it’s hungry, pick up the fruit and walk to the Chao. It will
    automatically take the fruit from you and eat.
    You can tell if a Chao is hungry by watching it. If it’s hungry, it
    will often stop what its doing, look down, and clutch its stomach
    whilst looking very sad.
    When a Chao does this, feed it soon, or it will end up starving and
    will have to shake the tree itself in order to get some fruit (this
    rarely happens. It takes a long time for Chao to become this desperate
    for food).
    You can also tell if a Chao is hungry by watching it while it’s eating.
    If it is going at the fruit like a pneumatic drill, it’s very hungry.
    When Chao eat like this, they can sometimes choke, but don’t worry,
    this doesn’t injure them in any way.
    If it’s just eating and making ‘mmm’ noises, it’s hungry, but not
    starving. When Chao aren’t hungry, they will start to eat the food, and
    then they will simply throw it over their shoulder.
    Petting is also important in raising a Chao. Petting a Chao is the
    fastest and easiest way of getting a Chao to like a certain character,
    for example, petting the same Chao with Sonic repeatedly will make it
    like Sonic. Chao can like many characters at once, though. Petting a
    Chao with one person doesn’t mean it will start to dislike another.
    When a Chao likes a character, when they whistle, the Chao will stop
    what it’s doing, and run over to them.
              4.2(1)     Understanding your Chao's Actions
    Understanding what a Chao is feeling, and what a Chao wants by
    watching what it's doing is a very important and essential part
    to being a good Chao raiser.
    In this section, I'll write a list of Chao expressions, sounds,
    and actions, tell you what they mean, and give you ways in which to
    react to each of them. If your Chao is doing something you don't
    understand, or haven't seen before, read this section to find out
    what it's doing, and why.
    Positive Actions:
    The positive actions your Chao can perform are usually pretty
    obvious. It's easy to tell when your Chao is happy because it
    will clap, laugh, cheer, smile etc.
    (After whistling) Your Chao runs towards you with a heart above 
    its head - Your Chao loves you, and responded to your whistle.
    Playing with other Chao - Your Chao are either indifferent to one
    another, or are friends.
    Holding hands with another Chao - Your Chao are good friends.
    This section is far from complete, so if you see a Chao doing
    something unusual, let me know.
    Negative Actions:
    Yawning - This shows that your Chao is tired. You may have been
    waking your Chao up and causing it to not get enough sleep.
    However, yawning can be perfectly natural. If your Chao has
    merely been doing a lot and hasn't fallen asleep yet, it will
    perhaps yawn once or twice before finally settling down.
    (Thanks to Pikminherder for reminding me of this action.)
    Crying - This shows your Chao has been beaten, or mistreated 
    by you. Beating often happens by accident. To make a Chao stop
    crying, pet it and hold it lots. It could also be incredibly
    hungry, or jealous of another Chao being treated better.
    (the latter rarely happens)
    Sitting, with swirly eyes, swaying on the spot - You beat your
    Chao severley, it's been given temporary brain damage, you evil,
    evil person, you!
    Sitting down, rubbing tears from its eyes - Your Chao has been 
    over-fed, or starved. 
    It is having hunger pains, or it is simply bloated.
    If you've fed it a lot recently, give it a break and leave
    it to its own devices for a while. If you haven't fed it
    in a while, grab some fruit and feed the poor thing!
    Sitting, clutching its stomach - Your Chao has been over-fed or
    starved. See above.
    Sitting down, rocking back and forward - Your Chao is bored.
    Try giving it something to do.
    Shaking a tree - Your Chao is so hungry, it's trying to get its
    own food. You haven't fed your Chao in a LONG time if this is
    happening. (I believe that perhaps a greedy sort of Chao might
    attempt this if merely a bit hungry, but I've not seen any
    evidence to support the theory.)
    Fighting with each other - Your Chao dislike each other.
    Beating up other Chao/Stealing food - This Chao doesn't like
    the other Chao, or is jealous of it.
    Attacking you - It LOATHES you. You've probably been beating
    it about and starving it. (Don't worry - This can't actually
    hurt your character.)
    "Neutral" Actions: (actions that could be taken as positive or 
    negative actions)
    Eating food quickly - Your Chao is either hungry, or it is a 
    "Big Eater" Chao (a personality trait). Big Eater Chao simply
    eat food quickly.
    This can cause them to choke, but this isn't cause for alarm.
    Choking - This doesn't hurt your Chao, it just stops them eating 
    for a couple of seconds. Don't worry about it.
    Laughing and doing an odd, jumping dance - Your Chao wants 
    attention. If you're not near your Chao, it may run and skip
    towards you with a heart above its head, as if you just whistled,
    and then begin jumping and dancing to get your attention.
    This usually means your Chao is spoiled, and thinks it can get
    your attention whenever it wants. It's up to you if you ignore or 
    pay attention to it. (After some research into Chao becoming
    friends/enemies, it seems that if you do pet your Chao after it 
    does this, any other Chao in view may get jealous. This can lead 
    to Chao disliking each other and becoming enemies. If you want
    Chao to dislike each other, then go ahead and pet the little brat.
    If not, teach it some manners! Either ignore it, or give it a 
    clip around the ear. Your choice.)
    Sitting, eyes closed, smiling or frowning, hand to its mouth - 
    Your Chao would appear to be thinking. The smiling face would seem
    to display that it is happy or contented, and the frowning face
    would appear to be the opposite. Sometimes Chao may simply have
    a blank look on their face when thinking, or just use their
    normal facial expression. If this is the case, who knows what
    your Chao is thinking about?
    Sitting and smiling - If your Chao doesn't naturally have a 
    smiling face, and smiling is an odd occurance, your Chao is happy.
    Sitting shows that it is bored, though. The Chao sometimes closes
    its eyes when it does this.
    Sitting, rocking back and forth, smiling - See above. The rocking
    while sitting is also a sign of boredom, though.
    (Thanks to Josh Wintz for pointing out these last three Neutral 
    Drawing a picture of a character, or Chao, or other things - 
    Your Chao is simply drawing. Nothing particularly special.
    Chao that draw Evil characters are perhaps leaning toward the dark
    side, or are simply raised more often by that character than others.
    Same goes with Chao who draw good characters.
    More coming soon! (Probably)
    If you have seen your Chao doing something you don't 
    understand, and isn't explained here, please e-mail me, with 
    a description of what it's doing (pictures if possible), and 
    I'll tell you what it means, and how to help your Chao. 
    You can also ask me on the SADX Board of GameFAQs. I'm there 
    almost every day, (SuperSonic67) but e-mailing is preferable.
              4.2(2)          Rare and Unusual Chao Activities
    Recently I recieved an e-mail from someone about Chao doing
    something I haven't experienced before.
    In SA2:B, a pair of Chao played "pass the skull" while
    swimming. Literally batting the skull between them.
    If you've seen your Chao doing something strange that hasn't
    been mentioned in this FAQ, please e-mail me. My address is
    in the contact information section.
              4.2(3)          Animal-specific Chao Activities
    The animals you give your Chao don't only change their
    physical appearence and stats. Your Chao will now perform 
    different actions, determined by the animals they have 
    Below is a table displaying these actions, researched and
    |Animal           |Action         |
    |Deer             |Draws          |
    |Rabbit           |Hops In Place  |
    |Kangaroo         |Dances         |
    |Elephant         |Sit-Ups        |
    |Gorilla          |Hits its chest |
    |Lion             |Break Dances   |
    |Swallow          |Back flips     |
    |Parrot           |Sings          |
    |Peacock          |Poses          |
    |Penguin          |Slides On Belly|

              4.2(4)          Making Chao Friends/Enemies
    Imagine that all the Chao you own have a sort of friendliness
    meter for all the other Chao in the garden. Making Chao
    interact with one-another makes these 'friendliness meters'
    go up. When Chao don't interact, the bar stays neutral,
    and when Chao have negative interactions, the bar goes down.
    To make two or more Chao become friends, simply treat
    them equally, and help them to interact. For example, if one
    Chao starts to sing or dance etc, grab one or more Chao and
    put them near to it. Hopefully, they will listen, or even
    join in dancing/singing with the other Chao.
    These are positive interactions, and doing them often can
    result in Chao becoming friends. When Chao are friends,
    they do things like holding hands, eating and sleeping
    at the same time, cheering each other up (they pat each 
    other's backs sometimes) shaking trees for fruit for each 
    other etc. (The last part only happens when one of the 
    'friends' is being starved by the owner, and the other friend 
    tries to help it by taking it fruit.)
    To make two or more Chao become enemies, make sure that one
    is mistreated, and one is treated extra-well. What I mean
    by this is, starve the one, and feed the other often, and
    pet it, and hold it etc, all in the other Chao's line of 
    site. This will make it jealous, and it will often throw 
    tantrums. Mistreating your Chao in this way can even make 
    it try to attack the character it hates. It will run up and 
    start punching the character, jump-kicking, and spin punching
    etc. Chao that hate their owner often blow rasberries, also.
    Anyway, back to the matter in hand - Chao becoming enemies.
    Once your Chao hate each other's guts, they will sometimes
    hit each other, steal each others fruit, push each other
    over and blow rasberries at each other.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Both of these processes take a LONG time,
    so please keep at it and just be patient.
    Due to the amount of time it takes, it might be best
    to use immortal Chao, so they won't die and have all your
    hard work ruined (I am unsure whether Chao are still 
    friends/enemies with other Chao after they die and 
    reincarnate, as I have only ever used Chaos Chao for 
    this experiment).
    Note - FuzzyHydralisk tells me that after reincarnation
    Chao remain friends, once every Chao involved has 
    reincarnated. I assume that the same applies if Chao are
    As per-normal, any questions, e-mail me!
              4.2(5)     Your Chao's Statistics
    Each Chao has it's own unique statistics, or "stats".
    Each sepperate stat represents how good your Chao is at certain
    For example, a Chao with it's highest stat being flying is Chao that's
    best at flying. A Chao with equally high stats in two fields, for 
    example running and power, is a "running/power Chao", just like a Chao 
    with high a high flying stat is a "flying Chao."
    The stats are shown in levels, 0 being the lowest, and 99 being
    the highest. Your Chao grows in levels when you feed it fruit, 
    or give it animals.
    For example, a normal piece of fruit from the Chao garden trees
    raises the Chao's stamina stat, and a flying animal such as a parrot 
    raises it's flying stat.
    The stats are represented in a sort of table, or chart, that you 
    can see when you pick up your Chao, or feed it.
    I have made an ASCII version of the table to show you in
    greater detail:
    (please note: The stats and levels shown here are just random
    numbers used to show you what the Chao's stat table looks like,
    and what it all means)
    |        NAME-OF-CHAO         |   This can be up to seven characters
    |-----------------------------|   long.
    |Swim                      103|   The number on the right indicates
    |Lv.13    [][][][][][][][][][]|   how many "stat points"* a Chao has.
    |                             |
    |Fly                      1389|   The 'Lv' is the stat level of that
    |Lv.34    [][][][][][][][][][]|   particular stat. The maximum level
    |                             |   any Chao can reach is 99.
    |Run                       803|
    |Lv.27    [][][][][][][][][][]|   There are ten bars to fill. Once
    |                             |   they are all filled, your Chao
    |Power                      87|   raises by one level.
    |Lv.9     [][][][][][][][][][]|
    |                             |   When a Chao goes up a level,
    |Stamina                   175|   you'll hear a chime and see "+#"
    |Lv.14    [][][][][][][][][][]|   the # representing the number of
    -------------------------------   stat points raised.
    (Please note that the stats shown in the table above are not an
    accurate representation of what points a Chao will have at that
    level.  I just picked random numbers to use in the table.)
    *Stat points determine how good your Chao is at something, and the
    level just shows how many times the Chao has leveled up in that
    stat section. 
    The Chao will "Level up" when the bar to the right of the 'lv' 
    reading reaches its limit, and starts over on the next level.
    Chao get better and better the higher their stat points are.
    EG. A Chao walks when it reaches 100, then takes 'Big Steps' when
    it reaches 800 points, then later it actually runs.
    (I've received an e-mail stating that a chao only requires 50 run 
    points to be able to walk. But I have not actually seen any
    evidence of this being true. I've experimented and all my chao
    seem to begin walking only after 100 run points. Perhaps there
    is something different in the way the chao are being raised
    or what food/animals are used)
    (Note - This was confirmed by a couple of people, so I tested it
    and payed a little more attention, rather than stuffing them with
    food until they reached 100 run points. Although Chao do walk further,
    more often, and faster the higher their run points. At certain levels,
    their step size increases. You'll notice this if you give your Chao
    a bunch of running fruit/animals for racing.)
              SUB     Hidden Statistics
    Apart from the five base stats of Swim, Fly, Run, Power and Stamina, 
    your Chao has two background statistics that don't appear on your Chao's
    stat table. These stats are Intelligence, and Luck.
    The two play a part in how your Chao interact with items in the garden,
    such as toys like the Jack-in-the-box, and how often they trip up, and
    could even relate to how they act toward other Chao, how often they 
    perfrom certain actions and so on.
    The simplest way to raise the Luck and Intelligence of a Chao is to use
    Both Intelligence and Luck play a part in Chao races. In Sonic Adventure 2: 
    Battle, for example, there are tests throughout the races that test all of 
    your Chao's abilities. Flying, Power, Running abilities etc, but there are 
    also tests of Intelligence and Luck.
    I'm not going to be going into much detail on these stats, as there's
    already a separate FAQ by Steve W about them. If you do want to learn
    more about Intelligence and Luck, read his FAQ.
                   SUB.1     Intelligence
    Test of Intelligence: There's a point in certain races where your Chao 
    comes across a small platform, which a screen above it and several items on
    the ground. Fruit, Sonic dolls and such. The screen shows which item is 
    required, and the Chao must pick up that item and carry it to the end of
    the platform. If your Chao has sufficient Intelligence, it will pick up the
    correct item and carry it to the end of the platform. If a Chao fails this
    test, a time penalty is issued and the Chao cannot continue for a good few
    seconds, which can seriously set you back in the race.
    Intelligence caps at 100 points.
                   SUB.2     Luck
    Test of Luck: Near the beginning of a number of races, your Chao will come
    across a Jack-in-the-box. Your Chao's Luck level determines whether or not
    the Jack comes out of the box and scares your Chao. With a high enough Luck
    statistic, your Chao will move on and not get scared. If its Luck is too low,
    your Chao will be scared into falling over, wasting several seconds, setting
    your Chao back significantly in the race.
    Luck also effects how often your Chao trips over. (In races, and in the Chao 
    garden) The more Luck it has, the less it will trip.
    Luck caps at 100 points.
    This is all I'll be describing about Luck and Intelligence. For more detail
    and better explanations, check out Steve W's 'Chao Hidden Abilities' FAQ.
    His guide also explains different ways of raising each stat, and what affects
    each method creates.
    Intelligence and Luck scores are affected by your Chao's personality. See
    section 4.7(1) for more details.
         4.3     Alignment (Hero/Neutral/Dark)
    Before you make a Chao evolve, you should decide whether you want it to
    become a Hero, a Dark, or a Neutral Chao. For a Chao to become a Hero
    Chao, you must raise it using Hero fruits, and for it to become a Dark
    Chao, use dark fruits.
    To see if a Chao is becoming a Hero or Dark Chao, watch as you feed it
    repeatedly. Its colours will change slightly, and the shape of it’s
    head may change also. Hero Chao get two little 'antennae' on their
    heads, and a Dark Chao's 'point' becomes crooked.
    When a Chao evolves and becomes a Hero, the floating ball above its head 
    will have turned into a halo, and if a Chao becomes Dark, its ball will 
    have become a spiky ball.
    After Evolution, the Chao will now be bigger than it was before, and
    any animal parts it had will be larger, and more exaggerated. If a Chao
    has become a Hero, its eye colours will have inverted, the outside
    turning black, and the inside turning white. A Dark Chao’s eyes will
    turn blue.
    (thank you to the people who pointed out the errors in this section. 
    They have now been corrected, and I'm sorry for any inconveniances this 
    may have caused. ^_^)
         4.4     Evolution
                 4.4(1)     First Evolution
    When a Chao’s stamina level reaches 100-200 points, it usually will
    evolve. Some Chao take longer to evolve than others, and sometimes it
    can be a long wait for a Chao to reach its second stage of life (or
    third, if you count being an egg as a stage of its life).
    When a Chao is going to evolve, it will sit down, and a cocoon will
    form around it. When the cocoon disappears, you will see your new
    evolved Chao.
                  4.4(2)     Second Evolution
    I still need to do some research on Second Evolution, but these are the
    principles and ideas of the process:
    At some time after your Chao’s first mating season (the first time the
    Chao sat down with flowers around it), it will be able to evolve again.
    It doesn’t evolve in the same way, though, and doesn’t have a cocoon.
    Chao are able to change in colour or shape drastically during second
    evolution, but sometimes the change is barely noticeable.
    After a Chao’s first mating season, give it an animal of a particular
    type, for example, you want a flying Chao, give it a flying type animal,
    like a parrot or peacock. This will influence the curve of its Second
    Evolution, and the Chao will gradually change to become a flying Chao.
    You may not notice the change, or it may be so obvious you can’t miss
    it. I will add more to this section after I have studied it a little
         4.5     Mating
    There comes a time in a young Chao’s life, when he must...
    Well, anyway. After evolution, an adult Chao is able to mate.
    You can tell when a Chao reaches it’s mating season when it sits down
    and a ring of flowers grows around it.
    During this time, another adult Chao may approach it. The two Chao will
    then stand up, and rub noses to some strange music. Don’t worry - the
    horrible sickly romance doesn’t last long, and the Chao pull apart, an
    egg mysteriously pops out of the air. Congratulations! Your Chao just
    had a child.
    People have been experimenting mating many different types of Chao, in
    order to see the results of the breeding, occasionally resulting in
    See through Chao, opaque Chao, and even rare two-tone Chao, which are
    covered later in the FAQ.
    Feel free to experiment yourself with breeding, and if you get any
    good-looking, or rare Chao, contact me (you should know my address by
    now) and give me a description (and picture, if possible) of the Chao
    you created, with a description of the two Chao you used to make it
         4.6     Death and Reincarnation
    After about 5 or so Chao years (a Chao year is around 3-5 hours real
    time), your Chao will die. 
    A cocoon similar to the one in which it evolved will form around your 
    Chao, but this isn’t always the end, so don’t grieve just yet!
    If your Chao has been treated well throughout its life, the cocoon
    will be pink in colour, and when the cocoon disappears, an egg will be
    left. It hatches, and…It’s your Chao! It’s Okay! Rejoice! Hallelujah
    …But if you’ve been a baaaad Chao raiser… The cocoon will be grey, and
    there won’t be any eggs left behind. *sniff*
    That was his favourite tree… and that’s where he learned to swim… I
    just can’t believe he’s gone! *sob*
    That was a glimpse of the future! The future if you raise Chao badly!
    So play nice! *waves stick at you menacingly*
         4.7     Chao Personalities
    Chao all have their own individlual personalities.
    Unfortunatley, you can't check your Chao's personality on SADX, due to 
    the absence of the Chao Doctor. (Perhaps he was fired.. He did make it 
    seem like he wanted the Chao to be ill.)
    Personalities that your Chao can have include:
    No personality (No advantages or disadvantages)
    Big Eater (Chao eat fast)
    Cry Baby (Chao cries at the slightest mistreatment)
    Spoilt (Chao throws tantrums to get attention)
    Carefree (They act pretty normal)
    Curious (They act pretty normal)
    Short Tempered (Tantrums more frequent, can become bullies more easily
    than other Chao, begin to dislike other Chao faster than others.)
    Energetic (These Chao play more, and are more active. For example,
    they paint more, they sing and dance more and so on.)
    Naive (Mate more frequently, and with more types of Chao.)
    Many thanks to SuperFoopy for emailing me with the information
    concerning Naive Chao.
    I will finish this list soon. I haven't done much research on Chao 
    personalities yet, but it's on my to-do list. It shouldn't be too 
    long before I've got a more-full list of traits.
              4.7(1)          Hidden Personality Attributes
    Not only do personalities provide physical effects for your Chao,
    but a hidden attribute which affects the Luck and Intelligence stats.
    No personality (No known hidden attributes)
    Big Eater (No known hidden attributes)
    Cry Baby (Low Luck and Intelligence)
    Spoilt (No known hidden attributes)
    Carefree (No known hidden attributes)
    Curious (Increased Intelligence, decreased Luck)
    Short Tempered (Increased Luck, decreased Intelligence)
    Energetic (No known hidden attributes)
    Naive (Increased Intelligence and Luck)
    I'm not going to go into any more detail on this section of the FAQ,
    as the 'Chao Hidden Abilities' FAQ by Steve W covers it in far more
    detail. If you want to learn more about Chao personalities, please read
    his FAQ.
         4.8     Types of Chao
    You may have noticed that some Chao grow up to look different.
    For example, flying Chao have two long protrusions on the back of 
    their heads.
    All different types of Chao have their own unique colouration, and
    even shape, due to the way they have been raised, what animals and fruit 
    have been used etc.
    There will be much more coming in a later update on this section.
    MUCH more. I will list the different types of Chao, and their 
    appearences, and give brief instructions on how to make them for 
    5.0     The Chao Black Market
    This place is your local Chao shop, where you can buy rare coloured
    eggs, fruit that just doesn’t grow on trees, and many a hat for your
    Chao…But it don’t come cheap!
    The rings you collect in the Action Stages is the currency used in the
    Black Market, so find a level you know you can get plenty of rings in,
    and do it over and over in order to save up your rings for the rarer,
    more expensive purchases. You can also sell items here, like the half
    egg-shells that remain from old eggs, hats you bought and don’t want
    any more, any fruit, but you can’t sell your Chao, so don’t even think
    about it!
    The more emblems you get, the more items are unlocked for purchase in
    the black market. I haven't discovered all the extra items yet, but
    finalchao is comprising a list of all items purchasable from the
    Chao Black Market. This is the incomplete version:

    6.0     The Chao Transporter
    The Chao Transporter is the giant Game Boy Advance in each of the
    You can pick up a Chao, and jump onto the large red button, to do a
    number of Game Boy Advance related things with your Chao.
         6.1     Drop Off
    This option enables you to take a Chao from any of your SADX gardens
    and send it to the GBA Tiny Chao Garden, a smaller, 2D version of
    a Chao garden. (see Tiny Chao Garden section for more details)
              6.1(1)     Chao Copy
    If you don't have a Sonic Advance game pack in your GBA and want 
    send your Chao to the Tiny Chao garden, it won't be as straight-forward 
    a process as just dropping it off onto Sonic Advance.
    Because there isn't a game pack in your GBA, the GameCube will provide
    your GBA with a temporary Tiny Chao Garden which will disapear when you
    turn off the GBA. Because it is only temporary, you can't save it.
    As a precaution to prevent you accidentally losing your Chao because of 
    not being able to save, the Chao sent to the Tiny Chao Garden will only
    be a copy of the one you sent, and you will keep the original on your 
              SUB     Tiny Chao Garden
    The Tiny Chao Garden is basically a miniature version
    of the Chao Gardens on SADX. It has a pond, mini-games
    and even it's own shop. The Tiny Chao Garden is only
    found on your GameBoy Advance, and to get to it, simply
    connect your GBA to your GameCube (it doesn't need to
    have Sonic Advance, or Sonic Advance 2 in it, but
    using an SA game pack is better, as you can save).
    Now grab a Chao, and jump on the Chao Transporter.
    Select "Drop Off" and you can send your Chao to the 
    Tiny Chao Garden. If you don't have an SA game pack
    in your GBA, it won't send your Chao to the Tiny
    Chao garden, but will make a copy of it, and send
    that instead, as a precaution, due to the fact that
    without an SA game pack, you can't save the Tiny Chao 
    Garden (as explained in the Chao Copy section of the 
                   SUB.1     Tiny Chao Garden Shop
    To open the Tiny Chao Garden Shop, press the L button.
    This is a list of all the items purchaseable:
    Item            |Price   |
    Orange          |30      |
    Blue Squash     |60      |
    Strawberry      |55      |
    Sour Apple      |50      |
    3-Sided Plum    |30      |
    Pear            |55      |
    Bitter Square   |70      |
    Normal Egg      |0       |
    Silver Egg      |500     |
    Gold  Egg       |1,000   |
    Ruby Egg        |5,000   |
    Sapphire Egg    |7,000   |
    Amethyst Egg    |8,000   |
    Emerald Egg     |10,000  |
    Garnet Egg      |12,000  |
    Aquamarine Egg  |14,000  |
    Peridot Egg     |16,000  |
    Topaz Egg       |18,000  |
    Onyx Egg        |20,000  |
    Bugle           |1,000   |
    Duck            |2 000   |
    TV              |8,000   |
    Note: You may have to keep leaving and returning to the Tiny
    Chao Garden if you are hoping to find a certain egg, as they
    appear at random, and the less rare eggs appear much more often,
    and are less expensive.
    As you can see, the Onyx Egg is the most expensive, and rarely
    appears in the Tiny Chao Garden. The Tiny Chao Garden eggs are
    known as Jewel Eggs, which have special breeding properties
    which are described later in the FAQ.
    Earning rings
    Earning rings in the Tiny Chao Garden can be a slow process
    without Sonic Advance, or Sonic Advance 2, as the only
    way to get rings is by use of the mini-games, as you can
    only send rings to SADX or SA2:B, and not the other way around.
                   SUB.2     Item Uses
    Fruits raise and lower your Chao's stats, and keep it balanced.
    Using the right fruits, you can raise specific types of Chao
    quickly and easily.
    The only set-back is the rings. If you have a lot, it's fine, 
    but if you're using the Chao Copy method, the only way to get 
    rings is slowly, through the mini-games.
    Here is a chart to show the effects of each fruit, so you know
    which ones to use to make a certain type of Chao.
    Fruit        |Mood|Belly|Swim|Fly|Run|Pow|Stam|
    Orange       |  +1|   +2|  +3| -2|  0| +3|  +1|
    Blue Squash  |   0|   +1|  +2| +5|  0| -1|  +3|
    Strawberry   |  +2|   +2|  +4| -3| +4| -3|  +2|
    Sour Apple   |  -1|   +1|   0|  0| +3| +4|  +2|
    3-Sided Plum |  +1|   +2|  -2| +3| +3| -1|  +1|
    Pear         |  +2|   +2|  -3| +4| -3| +4|  +2|
    Square Fruit |  -3|    0|  +3| +1| +3| +2|  -5|
    Eggs - These hatch into Chao. Either wait for them to hatch
    naturally, or you can pet them a few times.
    Please note that you can only have one Chao at a time in the
    Tiny Chao Garden, so if you already have a Chao and you
    buy a new egg, you can't hatch the new egg unless you
    remove the current Chao by sending it to SADX/SA2:B,
    or letting it leave by mistreating it.
    Bugle - Chao will play a few notes if you give this to them.
    They get better after playing it three times.
    Duck - The duck will float in the small pond. Sometimes, your
    Chao rides it, but this is very rare.
    TV - Your Chao will watch this when it gets bored. This raises
    it's mood level.
    Note: You cannot transport the Bugle, Duck, or television to
    SADX or SA2:B, but you can transport any of the eggs or fruit.
                   SUB.3     Mini-games
    To access the mini-games, click on the two miniature GBA's in the
    corner of your Chao Garden. They each have their own game for you
    to play.
    Pairs involves matching two of the same card to get rings. 
    The outer set of cards gives you 1 ring per card, middle square 3 
    rings, and the center square 5 rings. While your Chao is shuffling,
    you can press the A button and make it trip. Make sure to do this 
    while it's pushing a card, as this way, when it trips, it will flip
    a card over, allowing you to see what's on it.
    Remember its position, and it can help you towards some extra 
    points. Get as many pairs as you can before time runs out to
    earn as many rings as possible.
    Rock Paper Scissors
    This is a revamped version of the classic
    Rock Paper Scissors game, played using cards.
    You have three sets of cards at the bottom of the screen, and
    you have to launch them at the cards spinning around above.
    You must launch Rock cards (represented by a clenched fist)
    at scissor cards (represented by a hand holding up two fingers,
    in a "V" shape), launch Paper cards (represented by a flat, open
    hand) at Rock cards, and scissor cards at paper.
    The idea is, Rock blunt Scissors, Scissors cut Paper, and Paper
    wraps Rock.
    The cards at the bottom will reveal a diferent card after you launch
    one. This is why you have three sets of cards at the bottom, to
    keep options open for you so you have more of a chance of having a 
    card that will be effective. The more you hit, the more rings you
    earn. Get as many rings as possible before time runs out.
         6.2     Pick Up
    This option is how you retrieve your Chao from the Tiny Chao Garden,
    returning it to the garden on your GameCube.
    This option also allows you to transfer the rings you earned in the
    Tiny Chao Garden in the mini-games, or, if you're using Sonic Advance,
    the rings you collected in the levels also, to your GameCube, meaning
    even more rings for the Black Market. You can also pick up fruit from
    the Tiny Chao Garden, which have the same effects on Chao as they do
    in the Tiny Chao Garden (raising some stats while lowering others).
         6.3     Name
    This option lets you name your Chao. Simple! (It only works if you
    take a Chao into the transporter with you, obviously)
         6.4     Good-bye
    This is the end for any Chao you own.
    If you want to get rid of a Chao forever, then select this option.
    It gives you plenty of opportunity to back out if you decide not
    to get rid of your Chao, so don't worry about doing it accidentally.
         6.5     Quit
    This option's job is obvious.
         6.6     Porting to your GameBoy Advance
    As mentioned in section 6.1, you can 'port' your Chao to a GBA, and port
    it back with items and rings.
    There are anomalies, however, when sending a Chao from SADX, through the GBA, 
    to SA2:B, and vice versa.
    As you may have noticed, there are animals in SADX that aren't in SA2:B.
    A Chao with parts that aren't in the other game can still be sent through
    the GBA to the other game, but the parts won't be recognised, and will 
    disapear. The Chao will simply be left blank, but with the same stats etc.
    Sending a Chao raised on SA2:B using drives to SADX is fine 
    also, as drives don't leave any parts on a Chao.
    I'm still experimenting with different Chao and different animal parts
    and porting them, trying to find any anomalies, or differences, but so far
    haven't found any.
    If you find any anomalies, or have any questions concerning porting, don't
    hesitate to e-mail me.
    7.0     Chao Racing
    This is a particularly fun part of Chao raising, and it's also a
    reason to spend time making your Chao's stats higher, so you can WIN!
    Unfortunately, no-one's able to see you gloat.
    Improve all of your Chao's stats (Flying, Swimming, Running, Power
    and Stamina) as they all play a major part in the races.
    Power, or strength, is needed in races where Chao push things, or
    climb, flying is needed where Chao must leap off of high places,
    going as far as possible in flight is essential as it saves you time
    and is faster than swimming or running, stamina is a must in running
    races because it keeps your Chao running, and the running stat itself
    improves the speed of your Chao.
    You enter the Chao Races by going through the large brown door in the
    Station Square Chao Garden.
    (Note: You can see two animated Tiny Chao Garden Chao, on pedestals 
    either side of the screen. Nothing spectacular, but interesting, all 
    the same.)
         7.1     Beginner Race
    The beginner section consists of 4 different races, each giving an
    advantage to a Chao with a particular stat higher than others.
    You will want a Chao that is good all-round, with at least level
    30 on everything to have a good chance of winning.
                  7.1(1)     Pearl Course
    This course will benefit power Chao.
                  7.1(2)     Amethyst Course
    This course will benefit flying Chao.
                  7.1(3)     Sapphire Course
    This course will benefit a Chao with high power and swimming stats.
                  7.1(4)     Ruby Course
    This course will benefit swimming Chao
                  7.1(5)     Emerald Course
    This course will benefit a Chao that is good all-round.
    Note: This course is unlocked by winning the four
    previous courses)
         7.2     Jewel Race
    The Jewel section consists of 4 different races, each giving an
    advantage to a Chao with a particular stat higher than others.
    The only difference between this and the beginner section is
    the opponents. They are much, much tougher to beat this time
    around, so watch out! You should raise your Chao to at least
    level 50 on everything to stand a good chance of winning.
    The Jewel courses are unlocked by winning each of the beginner
    courses (including the Emerald course)
                  7.2(1)     Pearl Course
    This course will benefit power Chao.
                  7.2(2)     Amethyst Course
    This course will benefit flying Chao.
                  7.2(3)     Sapphire Course
    This course will benefit a Chao with high power and swimming stats.
                  7.2(4)     Ruby Course
    This course will benefit swimming Chao
                  7.2(5)     Emerald Course
    This course will benefit a Chao that is good all-round.
         7.3     Party Race
    This is a multiplayer Chao race.
    If you have friends with SADX and their own Chao, put their memory card
    in slot two and you can pit your Chao against theirs.
    You can also race up to four of your own Chao against each other, 
    as long as you have 4 controllers.
    There will be more added to this section of the FAQ in a future update.
    8.0     Special and Rare Chao
    Keep in mind that the unofficial Character Chao only bear resemblances
    to the characters upon which they are based. Only the official Character
    Chao are supposed to look like the Characters themselves.
         8.1     NiGHTs Chao
    This is probably the most popular type of special Chao.
    The amount of topics on the SA2B and SADX board asking how to make one
    is phenomenal, and it gets annoying when people don't bother to read
    an FAQ to find out, so read this, and your questions will be answered!
    Get a normal colour Chao (any other colour won't be very NiGHTsey, 
    Except maybe a purple Chao).
    Raise it to be a Neutral/Flying/Flying Chao.
    This means, it isn't Hero or Dark, and when it first evolved, its
    highest stat was Flying, and during its second evolution it went
    towards flying also.
    When it evolves for the first time, you'll notice it has
    nice big green wings and long jester-like protrusions from its head.
    It should be pink/purple, with rings around the protrusions.
    During the second evolution it will begin to look more like the
    character from NiGHTs, a Sega Saturn game, becoming a darker purple,
    with larger jester protrusions.
         8.2     Sonic/Shadow Chao
    (please remember that these Chao are NOT official. These Chao just
    resemble the characters. The official Chao look different and you must
    have gone to a special event to get them.)
    Sonic Chao
    Using a normal coloured Chao, raise it to be Neutral/Running/Running.
    After it evolves for the first time, it should be green, and will have
    spines coming from its head.
    Over time, it will become blue in its second evolution, eventually
    looking as much like Sonic as a Chao can.
    Note: Using a gold or shiny yellow egg, you can make a Chao look
    like Super Sonic by raising it in the same way.
    Shadow Chao
    Again using a normal egg, raise a Dark/Running/Running Chao.
    After the first evolution it should have green-striped
    spines, similar to the Sonic Chao. Over second evolution, the
    spines should slowly get darker, turn yellow, and gradually
    change to red, making it look as close a resemblance to Shadow as
    Note: You may want to raise these Chao On SA2:B, using the Chaos Drives,
    as the Drives don't leave any parts or marks on your Chao. There aren't
    any drives in SADX, so making these Chao on SADX will mean they are 
    covered in animal parts. The same goes for the NiGHTs Chao.
    So raise them on SA2:B, and port them to your GBA, then from the GBA to
    Official Tails Chao (Phantasy Star Online Tails Chao)
    You won't know what the hell I'm on about if you don't have Phantasy
    Star Online, so don't bother reading if you don't.
    To get this Chao, you must have a copy of Phantasy Star Online.
    Do the hunters guild mission "The Fake In Yellow" and when you
    complete it and return to the Pioneer, go back and return to the 
    There should be a number of Rag Pappies in the area, and a waterfall
    And small stream.
    Talk to the Rag Pappies a few times, then walk towards the waterfall 
    And wait for quite a while (sometimes it happens sooner, sometimes 
    it takes longer (It took me a few minutes waiting).
    Soon, a Chao should appear in front of the waterfall. It dances, 
    it sings, strange music plays, and now a GBA on a stick has appeared 
    at the pioneer.
    Go back to the pioneer, and stand on the GBA (You must have a GBA and a
    GBA/GC link cable). Have your Game Boy connected and turned on, and 
    stand on the GBA in the pioneer. You will have the option of 
    downloading the Tails Chao to a Tiny Chao Garden on your GBA 
    (you don't need Sonic Advance for the Tiny Chao Garden). The Chao 
    will appear on the GBA, so link it up to SA2B or SADX and transport 
    this strange orange Chao. Once you see it in 3D, you'll see how very 
    much it looks like Tails.
    This Chao cannot evolve, and cannot mate.
    Amy Chao
    Gerudo Warrior: By using a pink egg and raising it Neutral/Run/Run, You 
    can get a Chao that resembles Amy. By transferring it to SA2B, you can 
    give her the skunk poof thing on her forehead to represent her bangs. 
    This is NOT an Official Amy chao, but about the closest unofficial one 
    you can get.
    Knuckles Chao
    Anise Lew: You get a red egg and then make it a neutral. After that 
    you have to make it a running chao and the spikes on his head represent 
    his hair. Then you mak it a flying or power chao, your choice.
    SS67: I haven't had time to test this myself, but I'll confirm it after
    I try it myself.
         8.3     Chaos Chao: Angel, Devil, and "Light" Chaos Chao
    Making a Chaos Chao can be a very long, tedious process, and 
    requires a lot of patience, but keep at it. The end result makes 
    your time and effort very worth-while. Also, these Chao are immortal.
    That's right! They never die!
    So all your hard work will remain forever!
    Light Chaos Chao:
    This Chao looks like Chaos 0 (if using a normal Chao in the first place.
    Otherwise there will be a colour difference).
    To begin with, you need to have a Chao that has died and 
    reincarnated twice, and is therefore on its third life. As soon as 
    it reaches its third life, and is in its child form, you need to 
    feed it just one of each of the animals you can find throughout the 
    game (a list is provided later in the FAQ). Then simply let it evolve.
    To get this Chao, make sure it is NEUTRAL before making it evolve.
    To make sure of this, simply raise it using no Hero or Dark fruit.
    Angel Chao
    Will be pinkish in colour (if using a normal Chao in the first place.
    Otherwise there will be a colour difference).
    Made in the same way as the Light Chaos Chao, only making sure it is a 
    Hero Chao before evolution. Simply feed it Hero fruit.
    When it evolves you should hear some music that's different to the usual
    evolution music.
    Devil Chao
    Looks like a devil! Black in colour, with flames on parts of it. Best
    looking of all three Chaos Chao, in my opinion.
    Made in the same way as the previous two, making sure it is a Dark 
    Chao before it evolves (feed it Dark fruit). Simple! Don't worry about 
    leaving your GameCube on over night if waiting for a Chao to reach its 
    third life. Just make sure the vents on the sides are clear so it can 
    get plenty of ventilation.
    A list of Small Animals that can be found in the game is below.

         8.5     Jewel Chao (Tiny Chao Garden eggs)
    The eggs you can purchase in the Tiny Chao Garden are called Jewel Eggs.
    The Chao hatched from them are similar in appearance to the Shiny Chao 
    from SA2:B. There isn't anything particularly special about them apart 
    from their breeding properties.
    When you breed a Jewel Chao and a Shiny Chao, the result is an opaque, 
    or clear Chao (See section 8.6 "See-Through Chao"). Mixing certain 
    Jewel and Shiny Chao can even result in having an entirely invisible 
    Chao, apart from its eyes, mouth and wings.
    (Note from SuperSonic67: On SA2:B, the only way to get Gold and 
    Silver eggs was by purchasing them from the GBA and transferring 
    them to SA2:B.
    These Gold and Silver eggs are also classed as Jewel Eggs, as they are
    all from the Tiny Chao Garden. The Gold and Silver eggs from SADX have
    different properties when it comes to breeding, as I will explain
    in the See-through Chao section)
         8.6     See-Through Chao
    See-Through or 'Clear' Chao are made by breeding certain types of Chao.
    The way to make them is by breeding a jewel Chao (these include
    the Gold and Silver eggs bought from the Tiny Chao Garden) from
    the Game Boy Tiny Chao Garden, with a Shiny Chao bought from the Black
    Market on SA2:B/SADX.
    Different combinations produce different tints of see-though Chao,
    and one combination creates a Chao that is entirely invisible, save
    the eyes, mouth and wings. Experiment to find out which eggs mix to
    make what, and if you find any anomalies, or interesting things, e-mail
    me with a description, and a picture if possible, of your Chao, and a
    description of how you made the Chao. See Contact Information
    section for my e-mail address.
    If it is rare or particularly interesting, I will mention you
    in the FAQ in a later update, with the description of your Chao
    and the way to make it.
    Note: Concerning the different types of Gold and Silver eggs;
    The Gold/Silver/Onyx eggs found in the Tiny Chao Garden may look the 
    Same as the ones you can find in SADX in the adventure fields, but 
    they have different properties.
    The eggs in the Tiny Chao Garden are counted as Jewel Eggs, and 
    therefore have the same properties when it comes to breeding
    See-Through Chao.
    Mixing a Gold (Tiny Chao Garden) Chao with a Shiny Chao from SADX
    will produce a see through Chao, as the Gold egg from the Tiny Chao
    Garden is the same as a jewel egg. Also, if you mixed the two types
    of Gold Chao, you would produce a see-through Chao, as it is the same
    as mixing a Jewel/Shiny egg.
    Sorry if that was confusing, but it's quite tricky to explain.
    I will soon be posting a list of some of the different types of
    transparent Chao you can make here, with details on how
    to make them. I will also include information on the invisble Chao.
         8.7     Two-Toned Chao
    It's all in the name! A two-toned Chao is a Chao with two colours,
    or two shades.
    For example, a red and lime green two toned Chao is a Chao that's
    red and lime green. The only way to make them is through breeding. 
    Just try it for yourself.
    Breed different colour Chao and try doing different things with
    the baby. Like petting it with different characters, or changing
    it from hero to dark, as sometimes the two-tones don't show up until
    you do some different things with the Chao.
         8.8     Secret Eggs
    As you may have noticed already, there are special eggs hidden around
    the Adventure mode levels.
    You can find a Gold, Silver, and a Black, sometimes called "Onyx" egg.
    Here is a description of each egg and its location:
    Gold Egg:
    Appearance: Shiny, and gold. Produces a shiny gold Chao.
    Location: In the jewelry shop in Station Square (same area as the
    Burger Bar) To get this egg, you must first go to the place where
    you fought Chaos for the first time, outside the City Hall. Once
    in the area in front of the Hall, (the small 'arena' where you fought
    Chaos), look to the left of the entrance, you will see an egg shaped
    Pick it up, and take it to the jewelry shop with the golden egg on
    display in the window.
    Once inside, pick up the gold egg. Shock horror! The security gate
    closes and you can't leave with your nice new egg!
    Put the egg-shaped rock on the pedestal, and the door will open
    again, allowing you to make your escape with the gold egg.
    Take the gold egg to the hotel in station square, and go in the
    Elevator to the Station Square Chao garden. The egg is now
    permanently yours!
    Silver Egg:
    Appearance: Shiny, and silver. Produces shiny, silver Chao.
    Location: Behind the waterfall at the Mystic Ruins.
    To liberate this egg, simply walk to the right hand side of the
    large pond into which the waterfall is flowing, and jump on the
    odd looking platform sticking out of the wall, just above floor
    level. It will slide backwards into the wall, and force the platform
    holding the egg outwards, releasing the egg into the pond. Wait for
    it to come to rest on the bank and pluck it out of the water.
    (Note: This can't be done using E-102. He goes into hover mode too
    soon and isn't able to pick up the egg)
    Now take the egg to the foot of the first set of steps leading to Tails
    workshop, and look left. You will see an entrance to a cave. Go inside,
    and jump into the rail cart. This takes you to the Mystic Ruins
    Chao Garden.
    You now have the Silver Egg!
    Onyx Egg:
    Appearance: Dark grey/black in appearance. Produces a shiny black
    Location: A cell in the prison section of the Egg Carrier.
    Activate the switch using any character to open the cell, and pick
    it up. There aren't even any robot guards! Was it that easy?
    Yes it was.
    Leave the room with the egg and go to the room that requires a
    password, "E-G-G-M-A-N", to enter. Step on the glowing panel and
    you and the egg will be transported to the Egg Carrier Chao Garden.
    The Onyx Egg is now yours to hatch!
    Congratulations on finding all three secret eggs!
    9.0     Chao Facial Expressions
    As I have mentioned before, there’s more than one way to hatch a Chao,
    And each way often produces different facial expressions, and eyes
    (this hasn’t been proven, but through testing, I have found it does
    seem make a difference how the egg is hatched on the look of the Chao).
    Experiment yourself to find out what combinations you can make, if
    you’d like.
    If you leave the egg to hatch naturally, the expression of the Chao
    seems to depend on how close to the egg Sonic, or whichever character
    you are using, is to the egg. If they are near to it, the Chao
    usually has a happy, smiling face, and if they are far away from the
    egg, the Chao often hatches with a “^” shaped mouth, or a straight face
    “-” or even a “vvvv” wobbly face (often seen when Chao are crying).
    If you decide to pick up the egg and rock it, the Chao’s expression
    depends on how long you hold and rock the egg for.
    The rarer, more sought after facial expressions, such as the large
    pointy teeth, can be achieved by rocking the egg for a longer period
    of time, I managed to hatch several ‘pointy toothed’ Chao by rocking
    eggs for around two minutes.
    Sad or even angry faces can be achieved by rocking the egg for a short
    Period of time, one or two seconds often yields “^” Chao, and a time
    of around five to ten seconds can sometimes produce a straight faced
    (“_”) Chao or a “V” Chao.
    My experiments involving throwing eggs at walls (which are very fun
    experiments indeed) haven’t given very good results.
    Admittedly, the Chao hatched in this way do sometimes seem to have
    More puzzled looks on their faces than is normal in Chao, but I haven’t
    found any evidence of getting certain expressions in this way.
    You can get some interesting combinations by rocking your egg
    for a while, then throwing it at the wall.
    If you have found any rare, or strange faces for Chao, different
    from anything described in this section of the guide, please e-mail me
    (yodathesoldier@hotmail.com) with a description or even a picture of
    your Chao (if possible) and a detailed description of the way in
    which it was hatched, and I will add your contributions to the FAQ.
    10.0     The Chao Lifecycle
    A Chao's life consists of three stages. An egg, a baby Chao, and
    an adult Chao.
    A Chao lives for roughly five Chao years. Some Chao have been
    known to live for only four, and some for six, depending on the
    way they were treated throughout their lives.
    If they were beaten often, and rarely fed, their lives tend to be
    shorter, and if they were fed often, and constantly petted and held,
    a Chao will usually live a little longer (but these Chao will almost
    definitely reincarnate).
    Also, giving a Chao lot of Strong Fruit from the Black Market will
    increase their life span.
    11.0     Chao "Hats"
    As you may have noticed by now, you can purchase some pretty weird
    objects from the Chao Black Market Objects such as flower pots,
    cardboard boxes, tea cosies and the like. These objects aren't as
    useless as they seem, though.
    If your Chao have been given certain animals, they have the ability
    to wear these items on their heads, as hats, or helmets.
    They don't give the Chao any special abilities or powers, they are
    just there for you to look at and go "Oooh. It has a hat!".
    The idea may seem somewhat dumb, but it can be an interesting and fun
    part of Chao raising.
    (Note: The half egg shells left over after a Chao hatches can be used
    as hats)
    There are catches, however.
    For one thing, only certain animals give Chao the ability to wear
    hats, and for another, you can't remove the hats yourself.
    Only the Chao has the option of removing the hat, so if you gave
    a hat to your Chao and then decided it didn't look right, it's too bad.
    The only way to remove the hats, unfortunately, is to hit or throw
    your Chao.

         12.3     FAQ Credits and Special Thanks
    A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man, so I guess, thanking
    people will embiggen EVERYONE! (Where's the logic in that theory?)
    Anyhoo... On with the thanking!
    Thanks must go to Tnman, for the original ASCII title, and for being 
    a friend.
    Thanks to Climpa, for being completely pwnlerific in general!
    He has one of the best home-grown Chao sites around, that includes
    instructions on raising Chao, and has pictures of many special Chao.
    The URL is www.geocities.com/saveme_jebus
    Note: Hasn't been updated in a LONG time, Climpa doesn't seem very
    interested in Chao anymore.
    Thanks to Duckydude752, for doing research into the Animal-specific
    activities of Chao. He provided the table in section 4.2(3).
    You saved me a lot of time, and reminded me about this section of
    the guide.

    Chao Black Market item list.

    to host the FAQ on your website. Not to get to know me.
    No offense, but I'm not interested in being your friend.
    I have a different email for personal stuff. My hotmail address is
