WEll... i dont know much about the background of the game because I
dont understand Japanese that much. But from the animation of the
game, its about a kid trying save a world through the use of robotic
animals. From the ending of the game, it reveals that the robots were
created by a scientist with the aim of helping humans restore the
natural enviornment. Since I don't understand the Japanese I'm just
speculating with the given animation.

*                            Capturing                               *

Capturing is the best part of this game, this goes same for evolving.
There are a few basics that you need to know when capturing a robot.
You must know the Capture Bar which shows the possiblity of capturing
the desired robot and the "hanto"(exact translation) move located in
the battle mode. When a robot is hit the Capture Bar will increase, by
showing a yellow, then red , then blinking bar. The best possiblity
of capturing a robot, is when the Capture Bar is blinking or when
it's red

Battle mode->Special attack
	l            1."Hanto"		l
	l				l
	l	move1		move2	l
	l				l
	l	move3		move4	l

  Just remember that using this move requires EN

There are a few methods of capturing a robot depending on what your
trying to capture. When your robots gets too powerful to capture
anything you must vary your strategies and techniques. The way I
capture is to keep a seperate team, one for fighting and one for
capturing. OK.. enough about crap heres some ways:

	1. Normal
	This is your standard way of capturing. You injure the robot
	until its Capture Bar is red or blinking and then use the
	Hanto move.

	2. Using items
	There are two types of items, one that directly affects the
	Capture Bar and the other doubles the increase of the Capture
	Bar based on a normal hit. When using items, beware that some
	robots may dislike the item given and run away.

	3. Using Special attacks
	This is probably the best way in capturing a robot. There are
	moves that directly increases the Capture Bar and some that
	act like items. The best capturing move is probably the "Roar"
	move, which directly increases the Capture Bar. Well who learns
	it you may ask... Well the dog at the first island learns it
	at level 16 or 17 (i forgot). It costs 30EN to use its more
	powerful version costs 50 learned by the wolf on the volcano
	island. I have three dogs and evolved them to Hyenas and they
	rock!!! I do the move 10 times and the robot's capture bar
	will blink like crazy. This is heaps good because the robot
	is at full health therefore unable to regain HP(when a robot
	heals itself the Capture Bar decreases).

	4. Combination
	This is just a combination of the above methods. For a 100%
	capture rate then use the "Roar" move plus injuring the robot.
	Or just do everything mentioned.

1) Island 1 (main island)
Once you begin a new game, it will show you an intro, which gives you
background information. A girl gets injured and your Grandpa helps her.
Once her Grandpa is through talking to you, you should go right into
the "Pet" building where you can choose a Robot to aid you in the
fight against evil. You can choose from a Chick, Eagle or a Fox.
I chose a Chick because I kept pressing A ... oh well.
After choosing you will get into a fight in the Square, don't worry
if you lose because your suppose to, so don't waste items. After
losing go around the city and gather items from cupboards and bins...
Once outside your Grandpa will teach you how to capture robots.
Remember to capture it, its a butterfly that has a Capturing Robot
move. NOW YOU MUST TRAIN YOUR ROBOT to level 10 or you won't be able
to win victoriouly. Go to the building NORTH of the city and kick
some bad ass. After winning, the woman flies away and you will obtain
a shiny dot which turns out to be a glove.
The next part of the island will be available now so capture all the
UNDER WATER BASE. Go into the other city next to the lake and the fat
boy will show you how to evolve robots.
With a Parrot in your team, go North of the City and present it to the
scientist. If he doesn't accept it, walk out then walk back in. Once
he takes it, he will take you to the Tower that changes the landscape.
To change the landscape, go infront of the machine and insert a fire
robot. Remember once you put it in you can't withdraw it unless you
want to change the landscape back.
Go into the underwater building and beat the boss, hope you've been
leveling up. After beating the boss, you will be back in the orginal
city and the girl will follow you around. You now go East, to the
other side of the island then go South to the Airport on the beach.
You will then be flown to Island 2.

2) Island 2 (One with the arena)
Once arrived, go south to the city and just talk to everyone, because
I can't remember, but probably nothing. Now go North and follow the
path until u see a kid. He will challenge you and his robots are lvl
30 or high 20s. I think your suppose to lose, but if you can beat him
then go right ahead. After losing, you will be placed in a bed. Once
you get out of the bed, you'll notive that it was the town that you've
been heading. Now go South of the town and you will see a cave. Go in
and fight your way through. After defeating the boss, get the shiny
thing and head back to town for a quick healing. Now go in the Tower
and use the item infront of the door. *note* its a special item so
make sure you've read the above information. This is where heaps of
people get stuck. Make sure you have a green type to change the
Now go into the Arena. Go right and kick all the bad guys and collect
the items. Then go to the left and do the same. I forgot the order
here. You beat the boss and get a special item to free the people in
the electricty room or get item to defuse the bomb. Ohh...well, just
remember it is a Special Item
After freeing everyone you can go to the airport and you'll be flown
to a little island. This island is part of Island 2. Just go inside
the cave and go right until to see the ledge which looks like this:

	 ____     l
	l    l____l
	   l <--
	   ----- l
Just walk in the direction indicated and you should fall where the
button is. Now press the button, which should filter the water.
Now walk into the underground staircase and you'll face the robot
that knocked the plane down. Don't worry, you're suppose last 3 or 4
turns I think, and then it would self destruct. After that get back
to town and talk. After that get back on the flight and you'll be
taken to Island 3

the town go chatting with everyone and collect items. Just remember
that you should talk to everyone and scrab items. After doing so go
towards the hotel, which should result you to getting locked up. Now
get the blue shiny thing and open the cage. Now go to the back of the
Pet Store which can be achieved by walking right infront of the Pet
Store door(don't go inside) then go right, which will lead you to the
back. Press A on the crack of the wall and a staircase will show. Go
under and talk to the guy and collect the item in the chest, which
will give you a Special item. Now go left pass the guy and go upstairs.
Use the Special item infront of the rock. The rock will break and larva
will be gone. Now go and break the other rock on the lower right. Go
through the tunnel and you will reach the tower. Beat the guy and it
should change the landscape back to normal.
Now head for the hotel. In the hotel you have to collect 3 Coloured
Gems. Just look around in rooms, its a coloured ball. After collecting
them, go to Floor 4 and drop one of the Gems off the Ledge.*Note* Gems
are Special Items... After doing that you go back to Floor 2 and use
elevator, which leads to the boss.
Peace is restored and the cave to the west will now be open. Theres a

place and a green dog should appear. Follow it.. Head west of the
town and go across the water, into a house. You find out that a girl
is sick, and you need to get the medicine. Now head back to town and
enter the green building on the left. After talking to the old lady,
now you must head West to the cave. After coming out of the cave, you
will reach the Tower. Defeat the Purple.Centepede. After defeating it
make sure you only carry 5 bots only to recieve the robot from the
machine. Now head North-West to Cliff. Just keep moving upwards and
go to all the caves. Once you reach the top, you'll fight the boss and
you will obtain the medicine. Oh..yeah the dog comes and challenge you
to a battle for the medicine. After that, head back to the little girl

Island 6 (Boss)
Go straight into the Tower and insert a Green type. Now go inside the
cave. Once inside head to the ship on the right and talk to the guy,
which he will give you a Special item. Once you reach the last ship,
talk to the guy inside and he'll ask for a item but we got it already.
So use the item on the computer screen. This will cause the engine to
run and destroy those boxes blocking your path. Now just head upstairs
and talk to everyone and collect all the items and Special items,
remember to look in cupboards. On Floor 3 3 guys will block the stairs
to the next Floor. They will ask you to find three special items.
Hopefully you already looked everywhere so use the items infront of
them. Upstairs, theres an item store and healing place so make use of
it. Head upstairs and talk to everyone and collect Special items. To
fire the cannon, to need to speak to the guy in the warhead room, but
make sure you have the specail items. You'll recive a cannon ball so
now u can fire the cannon. After that proceed upstairs and beat
everyone up. Head upstairs which is Floor 8. There will be three
statues blocking your way and will ask you 9 questions. The answers
are Y, Y, N, N, Y, N, Y, N, Y. Now go upstairs and kick the boss's ass.
His got a heaps Powerful whale so beware. If ur robots are above lvl50
then you'll have no problems. After defeating him, you'll find out that
the boss with red hair goes crazy and knocks out the boss and captures

Island 7 (Final Boss)
This is simple, theres no tricks to it. Just beat everyone up. Theres
a healing thing inside the building, on Floor 3 or 4, not sure. You
can't come back to this island after killing boss, so capture all the
robots here or upgrade your robots, very nice experience points.
Before the fighting the red haired guy, you'll be fighting against
very cool and powerful robots. Its the robots of each Tower. Your
robots should be at level 70s because mine were. The final boss has a
big Purple.Dragon, its heaps big. I suggest killing the Green one
because it heals it's pals. After beating the boss you've finished the
game and watch the ending.
After that you'll be in the town of the first island and special caves
will now appear on each Island. These caves contain a Level 65 robot.
These are very hard to find and they've got cool looking special
attacks. I still haven't seen the one on Island 2 so hard to find. I
spent an hour looking for it.
