Minna de Puyo Puyo - Script & FAQ English version written / transcribed by Boco the Chokobo firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.livejournal.com/users/boco/ Random notes: 10-26-2001 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? Red, Yellow, Purple Incubus Seriri Suketoudara Kiki Mora Harpy Nohoho Draco Centaur Witch Zoh Daimaoh Lagnus Bishashi Minotaur Schezo Wegey Rulue Lord Satan (Satan-sama, Dark Prince) ---- Attract Mode Tutorial ---- -- BASIC MOVES THE ARROW BUTTON MOVES RIGHT TO LEFT.

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.

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... *get an item* -End with SCALE PENDANT Seriri: Ah, I guess I am done for too... Seriri: It was a short life... Arle: Hello, hello?

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. --Versus Suketoudara Arle: My tummy is growling. I want to eat something. Arle: What should I have... Something refreshing would be good.

Nohoho: Okay then... Let's PUYO PUYO! Arle: Why? -End Nohoho: Nohoho! Give up do you? Arle: Well... I won fair and square, so tell me the way. Nohoho: Well okay then... Here. Arle: No...

Deliver it to Seriri in HAJIMARI FOREST! -End without getting an item Nohoho: Nohoho! You got me again. Arle: I wonder what I can get this time. Nohoho: Well okay then... ...Whoh? Arle: What's the matter? Nohoho: All sold out. There's nothing left. Arle: What do you mean! What a scam!! Nohoho: Sorry about that. Well, come again soon. ---Gachinko Dungeon --Versus Kiki Mora Kiki: Oh, hello. Arle: Huh? You again. Arle: I guess you've got some whacky, new rule huh? Kiki: You guessed it. A NUISANCE PUYO called a HARD PUYO. Arle: Hard puyo? Kiki: They are pesky little PUYO who won't go away in one try. Arle: A real pain in the you-know-where. Kiki: Well... Start practicing. --Versus Harpy Harpy: You rang~ Arle: Oh... Our paths cross again... Harpy: What is your business this time~ Arle: Uh, well... I don't really want anthing.

Rulue: I'll defeat you and be the one to see the Dark Prince! --Versus Draco Centaur Draco: Arle! Arle: Oh, Draco... Draco: If you want by me, challenge me to a contest! Arle: A contest... Not another beauty contest? 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. Draco: Such a pity, Arle... To be behind the times and all. Draco: I'll send you straight to PUYO PUYO hell!! -End Arle: Hi-hi-ha! You're not even in my league Draco! Draco: Darn, darn, double darn! Draco: But, that's the way the cookie crumbles. Here's your prize. *get item* -End with FLAME EXPANDER Arle: Hi-hi-ha! You're not even in the same ballpark! Draco: Darn, darn, triple darn! Draco: Huh? Arle! is that what I think it is?

Now you really got me steamed! Kiki: Nuisance puyo are on the field here from the start. Arle: From the get go? So I should erase them first... Kiki: That might work but... It's smarter to make use of them. Kiki: Also make cahins and you'll be styling! Arle: Huh... It all sounds a little difficult... Kiki: Waste not, want not! Practice makes perfect! --Versus Suketoudara Arle: Oh, I got the munchies again... Arle: Waht shall I have... Suketo: Fish! Watch me strut my stuff!! Arle: Got it! How about grilled fish!

Deliver it to Draco in GACHINKO DUNGEON! -End without getting an item ---G. Dark Prince Castle --Versus Lagnus Bishashi Lagnus: I am Lagnus the Brave! Lagnus: I don't know what danger lurks beyond here. Lagnus: It's too dangerous for a girl to go alone! Let me protect you. Arle: Right... Sorry but...

I'm the one who should be teasing you! Schezo: I'm gonna slice you, dice you and minch you into shreds! --Versus Rulue Rulue: So you finally made it. Rulue: Arle, hush up and set the that sign down before me! Rulue: Then maybe I'll pretend I didn't see you. Arle: Huh! Why you?! Rulue: Just let me have it! Arle: Why should I?! Do you even have a clue what this is, Rulue? Rulue: Don't play dumb, dummy! But if that's the way you want to play it... Rulue: I'll just have to beat it out of you! --Versus Lord Satan Satan: A-ha-ha!! You were lucky to 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.

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* ---Trial Labyrinth Arle: This place? Looks like that labyrinth the Dark Prince made but...

FINAL STAGE VS CARBUNCLE Arle: Cakkun! You okay? Kaakun: Guu! Arle: Whew, that's good to hear. Kaakun: Guu. Guu. Arle: Oh yeah... There was A treasure chest. Really? Arle opened the Treasure chest... *get item* Arle: Let's get on home, Cakkun! Kaakun: Guuu! *credits roll, without animation* ---- 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. ---- Item list ---- ITEM NAME - What it does - Who, Difficulty, Order of items Signs: Signs let you gain access to new areas.

Or I'll use a ROM (which I can, legally) to delete savedata. +-----------------------------------------+ |Name | How to get | Item | |-----------------------------------------| |Seriri | defeat 1 | MERCHANT SIGN | | | defeat 2 | CARD 03 | | | defeat 3 | CARD 02 | | | defeat 4 | CARD 04 | | | trade | GODDESS SIGN | |-----------------------------------------| |Nohoho | defeat 1 | WARRIOR SIGN | | | defeat 2 | POINT PUYO RING | | | defeat 3 | CARD 05 | | | defeat 4 | CARD 06 | | | defeat 5 | CARD 07 | | | trade | SCALE PENDANT | |-----------------------------------------| |Draco | defeat 1 | CONJURER SIGN | | | defeat 2 | HARD PUYO RING | | | defeat 3 | CARD 08 | | | defeat 4 | CARD 09 | | | defeat 5 | CARD 10 | | | trade | NOHOHO RUCKSACK | |-----------------------------------------| |Witch | defeat 1 | MONARCH SIGN | | | defeat 2 | CARD 11 | | | trade | FLAME EXPANDER | |-----------------------------------------| |Satan | defeat 1 | DARK PRINCE MASK | | | defeat 2 | DUBIOUS BOOK | | | HARD def 1 | | |-----------------------------------------| |Kaakun | defeat 1 | CURRY CALLING BELL | | | defeat 2 | CARD 18 | | | defeat 3 | CARD 17 | | | defeat 4 | CARD 19 | | | HARD def 1 | PUYO MASTER RING | +-----------------------------------------+ 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.
