Version 1.3 and still going.

Many people have contacted me, requesting permission to 
post this FAQ.  I have refused ALL offers save one, simply 
because of one simple reason:
They were form letters.
Do NOT send me a form letter.  It is a guarantee that my 
permission will not be secured.  If this FAQ is posted to 
a site that does NOT have my permission, I -will- pursue 
that site legally.
So far, only GameFAQs and the Puyo Museum can post this.

I've discovered soemthing, with a little help: the items 
you recieve are directly corrolated to how many times 
you've defeated the caracter, and NOTHING ELSE.  I've 
updated the chart to reflect this, as well as added a 
complete (or at least MORE complete) card listing and 
the itemless endings to the script.
Next up is profile translations: I'm going to type up the 
Japanese versions of the profiles and save them in a pic. 
If anyone knows Japanese and can help translate them, 
PLEASE e-mail me, and I'll send away.  René will probably 
do a few, or at least redo the ones I did with a dictionary 
and Babelfish.


10-21-2001
Version 1.2
Lagnus's name has been corrected.  Thanks to the owner 
of http://puyo.gq.nu/ despite him not having it anywhere 
on the page ^_^;;
The script for the itemless ending has been put up, 
and the script for Trial Labyrinth is being started.  
Each of the options and menu's are now being explained, 
as this goes more and more towards being a full-fledged 
FAQ instead of a script with extras.

Finished script of Trial Labyrinth, for now.  More items 
added, more general stuff added.  Etc.


10-21-2001
Version 1.1 and climbing..
I've added some of the profile translations.  They 
still need a lot of work, but hey.  I might include 
the Japanese versions of the profiles and script in 
the future.

If anyone knows how to delete save data, I'd love 
to be able to, so I can get the Japanese names for 
each item and see how each item is gotten.
To that end, I'm adding who I've won each item from 
and what difficulty I won it on, as well as which 
time I'd defeated them.

The script for G.D.P.Castle, the item run, the attract 
mode tutorial and some additional items have been added.

Oh, does anyone know the correct spelling of Lagnus's 
last name?  The site I got the other names from 
doesn't have it.  The name in KATAKANA is RAGUNASU 
ZESHYASHI...
..on the subject of names.. what is the G in 
G.D.P.Castle?  When you get MONARCH SIGN it says "G. 
Dark Prince Castle"...

I've also added an FAQ covering what I -think- is the 
correct Item Chart, as well as how to unlock the 6th 
area, and the options screen.


10-20-2001
This is version 1.0
I haven't beat everyone yet (just got the game) 
so I only have the script until G.D.P.Castle.  Any 
typoes are the fault of Sonic Team, not me.
I don't know everyone's names (and the names aren't 
stated in-game for most), so credit for the 
naming goes to the owner of http://puyo.gq.nu/ 
and error in naming goes to me ^_^;;;;  Please 
correct any errors you see by e-mailing me...
In the future, I'll expand this into a FAQ, 
but for now it's only a script and an item list.

The FAQ will include character bios translated 
from the manual, as well as how each character 
plays, and a more complete list of items and 
what they do. 

If anyone wants to post this for any reason, 
e-mail me with a link to where it's being posted, 
and 99% of the time, you'll get an OK.

Anyway, let's get started, shall we?



---- Character Introductions ----

Translated mostly by the Babelfish.  So blame Altavista.

 Arle Nadja
The always-bright-and-energetic sorceress of eggs.  To tell 
the truth, amazing bewitchment is concealed, for it seems 
that such consciousness is completely absent from this person.

 Carbunkle (Cakkun, Kaakun)
A strange creature with a red jewel in his head.
He and Arle like curry a lot.

 the Puyo
The leading part in the game, but (perhaps) they don't talk.
There are 5 colors: Green, Yellow, Red, Blue, and Purple.

 Skeleton-T
The eternally inept character, he can't rotate the puyo, yet 
he's a lover of Japanese tea.  
...huh?  He's a man?

---Prologue

One Fine Day

Arle was playing with
Cakkun as usual but...

Oh! Cakkun!!

What did I tell you 
about eating stuff on
the ground!

Say Ah!
Ahhh!! 

Guu...

Come on now.
You..

Huh?
What's could this be?

No way?
Way!

I don't think we are in 
Kansai anymore.
Maybe it's just me?

Guuguuguu!!

Hey! Cakkun!!

Where do you think 
you're going!
Wait for me!!

Guuguu
guuguu!!

And this is how another 
funny, little adventure 
began for Arle.


---Hajimari Forest


--Versus Skeleton-T

 Arle:
Hey, hey you...

 Arle:
A strange gate just 
appeared at the 
forest entrance.

 Arle:
Know anything about it?

 Skeleton-T:
Just rest your bones.
Have a cup of tea 
with me.

 Arle:
Uh, thanks.
(Gulp-gulp...)

 Skeleton-T:
Wha-ha-ha.
I got you!

 Arle:
Huh! No way.
Did you poison my tea?

 Skeleton-T:
Wha-ha-ha. No, just left
over from last month!!

 Arle:
Ughhhhhh!
...But, not bad after
a few sips.

 Skeleton-T:
What!
If you can handle month
old tea then either...

 Skeleton-T:
You have the palette of
a connoisseur or no
tongue at all.

 Arle:
Are all skeletons
this nosy?
Leave me alone!

 Skeleton-T:
If that's how you
want it, then,
let's PUYO PUYO!


--Versus Incubus

 Incubus:
Hi, honey.
Where are you off to?

 Arle:
Whatever...
Talk about your
stuck-up smartalecks.

 Incubus:
Oh, darling.
Even your troubled face
is cute in my eyes.

 Arle:
Jeez...
And fifty other lines
to get you nowhere.

 Incubus:
You poor baby...
Here let me, beautiful
me, warm you up.

 Arle:
Stop it!


--Versus Seriri

 Seriri:
Uh...
H-hellooo...

 Arle:
Oh, hi.

 Seriri:
Could it be you came
to play with me?

 Arle:
No, not really but...

 Seriri:
Huh!
I knew it. You're after
my body right...

 Arle:
No, not really but...

 Seriri:
The idea that if you
eat us, you'll never
age is just a legend.

 Arle:
Hmm... I think I heard
that before but...
You don't say?

 Seriri:
Ah! Darn it!
I let another secret
slip out!

 Seriri:
So be prepared!


-End

 Seriri:
Ah, I guess I am
done for too...

 Seriri:
It was a short life...

 Arle:
Hello, hello?

 Arle:
I wasn't planning on
eating you...

 Seriri:
Y-you weren't?

 Arle:
Not, not at all.
I just wanted to ask
you directions.

 Seriri:
Oh, was that all?
I guess I got my fins
crossed again...

 Arle:
Well... Don't worry.
It's no big deal.

 Seriri:
Sorry for everything.
Let me make it up
to you. Here...

bring you this but...

Arle takes out the
SCALE PENDANT.

 Seriri:
Oh, that!

 Seriri:
I lost it a while back
and was looking for it.

Well then that's
great news!

of my appreciation.

---Goldtown


--Versus Kiki Mora

 Kiki:
Welcome, welcome.
Are you new here?

 Arle:
Yes it is but...
Why do you ask?

 Kiki:
Because the rules are
a bit different here.

 Kiki:
A NUISANCE PUYO
called a POINT PUYO.

 Arle:
Point PUYO?

 Kiki:
If you erase
POINT PUYO,

 Kiki:
you can send
many POINT PUYO
to your opponent.

 Arle:
Now those sound like
handy little guys.

 Kiki:
But, the same goes for 
your opponent, so
be careful. Okay?

 Arle:
I see your point...
Watch out for
counterattacks right?

 Kiki:
That's right.

 Kiki:
First, try practicing 
here to get the
hang of it.

would be good.

Fish!
Watch me
strut my stuff!!

Oh, sashimi...

Rulue today?

She's out buying 
groceries for
tonight's dinner.

 Arle:
Really...
Hey by the way...

 Mino:
Moooh?

 Arle:
Don't you find it
hard being with Rulue
all the time?

 Mino:
What do you mean?

 Arle:
Will, Rulue is
like really selfish.

 Arle:
You should tell her
how you feel sometimes.

 Mino:
Moooh!
I won't have you
badmouthing my Rulue!

 Mino:
I'll beat you
for my Rulue!
Moooh!


--Versus Nohoho

 Nohoho:
Nohoho!
See anything you like?

Sorry...
But I didn't come
here to shop.

 Nohoho:
Regardless, you have to
at least by something.
Store policy.

 Arle:
Well, I don't need
to shop.

 Arle:
But I do need to ask directions...

Okay then...
Let's PUYO PUYO!

 Arle:

You guessed it.
A NUISANCE PUYO
called a HARD PUYO.

 Arle:
Hard puyo?

 Kiki:
Well...
Start practicing.

And you what!!

see the Dark Prince

Dark Prince?
No, that wasn't my

Arle!

 Arle:
Oh, Draco...

If you want by me,
challenge me

A contest...
Not another

 Draco:
Not a beauty contest,
a PUYO PUYO
contest.

 Draco:
When are you going to
wake up to what's
really going on?

 Arle:
Hmm! So you're dead
serious huh?

 Draco:
Today's world is not 
about beauty
but healing!

 Arle:
...Sure. Now go back to
bed and let me bring
you your medicine.

Such a pity, Arle...
To be behind
the times and all.

 Arle:
Hey!

 Kiki:
Hmm... You should
have told me so
in the first place.

 Arle:
Hmph! Now you
really got me steamed!

 Kiki:
Nuisance puyo are
on the field here
from the start.

It's smarter to make

Practice makes perfect!

 Lagnus:
I am Lagnus the Brave!

danger lurks
beyond here.

 Lagnus:
It's too dangerous for
a girl to go alone!
Let me protect you.

 Arle:
Right...
Sorry but...

 Arle:
I don't have time to
play house with a
little runt like you!

make it this far,Arle!

 Arle:
Dark Prince! I should
have know you'd be 
behind all this!!

 Satan:
Huh? What ever
are you suggesting?

 Arle:
Well... Okay then.
Forget I mentioned it.

 Arle:
But... Whenever I see
your face, I'm reminded
of the dumbest stuff.

 Arle:
Like maybe you have
something up your
sleeve...or robe...

 Satan:
No fooling you, Arle!
You've caught on
to my plans!

 Arle:
What!!
Not again!!

 Satan:
Listen and learn!
You have to 
defeat me or else...

 Arle:
Or else what!


-End

A-ha-ha. Arle!
I...I might have know!!

Y-you...were lucky
to defeat the likes
of me!

Tryign to be cool Dark
Prince? And that voice?
Definitely not you.

So! What evil is up
your sleeve? You've got
a sleeve right?

Little Arle...

You didn't happen to 
find five signs on
the way here?

Signs? Road signs?
Maybe that's what Rulue
was going on about.

What are they anyway?

Hmm...
Turn it over and
try lining it up.

Every which way?
Oh! What's this...

Two nights, three days
at the LoveMe HoldMe

Hot Springs with the
Dark Prince.

Gimme a break!
You can't even swim!!

Hmph, hmph...
You're blushing.

Of course, we can take
Cakkun with us!

...In your dreams!

Ahhh!
Oh my God!
What am I saying!!

Let's hit it, Cakkun.

Guuguuguu!!

Huh? Cakkun,
what's that thing?

 *get item*

Later, your Blackness.

Guuguuguu!!

Flattery will get
you everywhere...

 *credits roll*


-End without getting an item

A-ha-ha. Arle!
I...I might have know!!

Y-you...were lucky
to defeat the likes
of me!

Hey, Dark Prince?

W-what?

There's one thing 
I don't get.

Why did Cakkun
pick up this sign
anyway?

Hm, hm, hm...
Actually, Arle you...

That sign is made of
the finest quality

curry powder
known to man!

Really!
But it doesn't smell
at all.

Of course not! I coated
it with magic to keep
it from smelling.

A trace smell was all
that was needed for
Cakkun to pick it up!

So that's how you 
did it. Pretty sneaky,
Dark Prince.

This means so
much to me.

Really, Arle?

Not that much!

Ahhh!
Oh my God!
What am I saying!!

Wow! It smells so good
when broken in half.

Gooo!

Let's get on home and
make some curry
Cakkun!

Guuguuguu!!

What about me...

 *credits roll*

Prince made but...

for aiming at
another level up.

 Arle:

You are. Lagnus!

 Lagnus:
All enimies that appear
are all illuions...
But yes...

 Lagnus:
Your abilities are a 
higher level than
in reality!

 Lagnus:
Then, the same
goes for me too.

 Arle:
Whoh?

 Lagnus:
Brave Lagnus!
I'm on the move!

---- Futari de Puyo Puyo ----

*coming soon*

---- Minna de Puyo Puyo ----

*coming soon*


---- Endless Mode ----

---Endless
 It's very easy to live forever in Puyo Puyo, 
so long as you don't have an opponent, and this 
is the mode that lets you do it.  When you die, 
you'll have no-one to blame but yourself.

---Task
 A set of instructions is given to you, along 
with 99 seconds to follow them.  For every 
task completed, you get a bit more time.  Tasks
get more challenging as you go on - the first 
task might be to pop 5 puyo, but a later one 
might have you pop 3 colors of puyo simultaneously.
Great training for multiplayer games, as it 
requires rensa-building skill and quick-thinking.


---- Options ----

--Difficulty
 This option makes the Hitori de game harder or easier.
It affects your score but not what items you get, as far
as I know.  Three settings: Easy, Normal, and Hard.

--Message Speed
 How fast the text scrolls.  In 'slow', you have to press 
a button to go to te next screen, but in all three you can 
press a button to have all the text display at once.

--Rounds
 How many times do you play in Futari de and Minna de?
Choices are 1-all, best 2 of 3, best 3 of 5, best 4 of 7, 
and best 5 of 9.  Well, the choices are really 1-5, 
but how else to resolve ties?

--Ranking
 View the high-score list for each area, Endless, and Nazo.

--Gallery
 View character artwork and voices.  'A' plays a voice clip, 
'B' exits, 'L' and 'R' cycle through collected CARDs.

--Language
 English or Japanese?

--Return to Preset
 Resets defaults, including changing language to Japanese.
Does not affect savedata or high scores, unfortunately.

--Return
 Exit the Options screen.

---- FAQ ----

Q. How do I unlock the 6th area?
A. Defeat Satan twice, then deliver the items.

Q. What item do I get from defeating _______?
A. I -think- this is it.  Who has what cards 
 will be added later, along with confirmation 
 of the number of times battled.  Does difficulty
 matter?  I need someone else's list to see.
 Or I'll use a ROM (which I can, legally) to 
 delete savedata.

Q. What are all these strange names on the high-score list?

A. Those are characters from this and other Puyo Puyo 
 games.  Each has been abbreviated to 5 characters, and 
 in Hitori de, at least, will give you an idea of who's 
 there.  I'll type up a list of them in a later version 
 (after I get the ROM or some help).

Q. What do the CARDs do?

A. Go to the Options screen.  See the 'Gallery' option? 
 Select a number and press 'A', and you'll be presented 
 with a different Sonic Team artwork of a particular 
 character.  Pressing 'A' cycles through all of the voice 
 clips for that character, and the 'L' and 'R' buttons 
 switch to other CARDs.
 The Puyo card, 18, is special.  Puyo have no voices (as 
 stated in their profile ^_- ) so, instead, the Puyo card 
 acts as a sound test, and cycles through all of the sound 
 effects of the game.. INCLUDING the 'gloop' of dropped 
 Puyo and Ojyama that is not in the game itself.

Q. Ojyama?  Kata?  Tokuten?

A. Nuisance.  Hard.  Point.
