I    * INTRODUCTION *    I
I========================I
Digimon: Battle Spirit is a great game and a must-have for all fans.  However,
there seems to be very little or no coverage of it on the gaming sites I've
visited.  I decided then to create my own guide on this game, which you are
now reading. :)

I wrote this guide playing the American release of the "Digimon: Battle Spirit"
game for Gameboy Advance.  Not every detail was available to me, as to any
player in my position.  For instance, I don't know the *official* names of the
fields, attacks, and other things of that nature.  However, that has very
little to do gameplay, so it shouldn't matter much.

I===========================I
I    * BATTLING BASICS *    I
I===========================I
If you've played realtime battling games like Street Fighter or Tekken before,
this game should look very familiar.  There are, however, many differences.
For the default battling style, the goal is not to knock-out the opponent by
means of whittling down its hit points, but to collect more "D-Spirit" than it.
D-Spirit (which I will shorten to DSp) are the colored orbs given off whenver
a Digimon is hit with an attack.  The blue orbs are your opponent's, and
they're the ones that will raise your D-Spirit count.  Your count does not
increase if you collect your own reb orbs, but it's a good habit to do so.  If
you collect them, that means your opponent can't.  When the match times out,
whoever collected more of its opponent's DSp wins.

Occasionally, a small, floating white Digimon called Calumon wil appear on the
field.  Whoever touches it first Digivolves to their more powerful Mega form.
In the Mega form, a Digimon has a different set of attacks and will not produce
any DSp when hit.  A Mega also cannot be electricuted, burned, slowed, or
confused.

You have an energy bar shown on the top of the battle screen.  This determines
how long you can stay in your Mega form and how long you can block.

In the event of a draw, when both combatants have collected the same amount
of DSp, there will be a short tie-breaker battle.  The clock is set to 1:30
and all the normal rules apply.

I===================I
I    * BUTTONS *    I
I===================I
Since this is a fighting game, there will inevitably be moves you can do using
a sequence or combination of your GBA buttons.  For easier understanding of
these sequences and combinations, I will use certain symbols and letters to
represent the buttons on your console.  It should be easy to figure out what
they mean, but here's a key anyways.

your Digimon up and down.  Only certain fields have side edges that act as
walls for you to cling to.  These fields are Cathedral Ruins, Digimon Emperor's
Lair, and Nuclear Wasteland.

I    * CHARACTERS *    I
I======================I
There are 7 Digimon you can play as originally, and 5 that you need to unlock.

   Agumon"   |     Omnimon^    |   Tai
   Impmon    |       none      |   none

= Notes =

 * Veemon Digivolves to Imperialdramon's Paladin mode, with a white and gold
   color scheme.  Wormmon Digivolves to Imperialdramon's Fighter mode, with a
   black and green color scheme.

 " There are three Agumon found in this game.  The two colored yellow are Tai's
   and have the attribute "vaccine."  One of them is the one you're given
   originally, the other is a secret character that comes with Gabumon (seeing
   as how Omnimon is their shared DNA Digivolution).  The third Agumon is
   colored black and has the attribute "virus."  It is not a DigiDestined
   Digimon and was not featured in the anime.  I will be referring to these
   Agumon as Agumon1 (normal), Agumon2 (Omnimon), and Agumon3 (viral).

 ^ Gabumon's Omnimon and Agumon2's Omnimon are identical in look and technique.

I=================I
I    * ITEMS *    I
I=================I
When you defeat a field enemy (1-3 hits, depending), it will disappear and
leave an item.  These can be used in attacking your actual match foe.  Some
of these can be very useful.

= Baseball =
Effects: damages -- 1 DSp
Notes: this is thrown in a straight path, making it easier to aim than the
bowling ball.

= Bowling Ball =
Effects: damages -- 2 DSp
Notes: unlike the baseball, the bowling ball's trajectory is arched.

= Clock =
Effects: inflicts "Stop" status
Notes: thrown in a horizontal straight line.  This is the most useful item
for initiating combos.

= Clock =
Effects: inflicts "Confused" status
Notes: thrown in a horizontal straight line.  Can be devestating to human
players.

= Lightning Ball =
Effects: damages -- 2 DSp
         inflicts "electricution" status
Notes: thrown in a horizontal straight line.  Make sure you have ample
distance.

= Flame Ball =
Effects: damages -- 2 DSp
         inflicts "burned" status
Notes: thrown in a horizontal straight line.  Best cumulative effects for
attacking with an item, IMO.

I====================I
I    * STATUSES *    I
I====================I
In battle, you can do more to your enemy than just damage them.  These
inflictions can give you the opportunity you need to win it.

= Slow =
Desc: attacking and/or moving take(s) more time to execute.
Sources: the sand in Etemon's Desert, going the other way on a conveyor belt,
         Milleniummon's special attack

= Stop =
Desc: completely frozen in time.  Cannot do anything.
Sources: the Clock item

= Stop =
Desc: directional buttons are reversed.  The transition is worse to deal with
than the actual effect.
Sources: the Gear item

= Electricution =
Desc: cannot jump, movement is barely there.  If the other combatant touches
      an electricuted Digimon, it too will be inflicted
Sources: lightning, the Lightning Ball item, some special attacks of Megas

= Burned =
Desc: player has no control of where a Digimon moves, but can still control
      jumping
Sources: Impmon's various attacks, the Flame Ball item

= Recovering =
Desc: state after being hit with a powerful attack.  The digimon is flashing
      and immune to all forms of attack.
Sources: any running attack, any attack from a Mega, etc.

I=====================I
I    * 1P BATTLE *    I
I=====================I
This is the mode that pits you against 8 different computer-controlled enemies
on 8 different playing fields.  You'll need to finish this mode several times
in order to unlock secret characters, and to work your way up the high score
table.

The format for each of the fields below is name, enemies, map, key, quirks,
background & art, then tips.  I've sacrficed a lot of my free time making those
field maps below. However, no one's perfect, so the field maps might not have
been made with *completely* accurate proportions.

The first 3 battles of 1P Battle mode are set in Toy Town, Cathedral Ruins, and
Etemon's Desert, repectively, and the Final Battle is always set in Nuclear
Wasteland.  The four battles in-between, however, are in a random sequence of
the following fields: Frozen Wasteland, Digimon Emperor's Lair, Puppetmon's
Jungle, and Shinto Temple.  Also, during one of those battles, the computer's
version of Impmon will force the default foe off of the field and take its
place as your opponent.  Impmon will always show up sooner or later, but which
field and battle it shows up in is random each time you go into the 1P Battle
mode.

------------
 + Impmon +
------------
Impmon is no run-of-the-mill Digimon.  Since it has no DigiDestined partner,
it can't Digivolve, and since it can't Digivolve, the designers compensated
by making its rookie form significantly stronger.  Its special attack, a
fireball, has a trajectory that is hard to predict.  The fireball bounces
around and is apparently affected by gravity (downward force).  Avoid that
thing as best you can.  Try to get to high ground, and when you get the chance,
drop down with an air attack.

On lower difficulty settings, Impmon will frequently use its loitering
animation (where it puffs up and blows up), which can actually harm you.  Keep
your distance and attack from afar.

The most annoying part about Impmon, however, is that it draws DSp towards it.
I find that chasing after the DSp is quite futile.  Just jump to intercept them
when they arch back to it.

Oh yes, I should mention that if this Impmon intrusion battle ends in a draw,
the default foe will return for the tie-breaker battle. :)

 |====|  Trampoline
 |____|

= Quirks =
There is a device to the left which I've dubbed the "trampoline".  It lets you
jump really high if you press A the instant you land on it.

= Background & Art =
This field is just as colorful and whimsical as the Toy Town in the anime
series.  The thick platforms are actually a series of toddler blocks, and the
thin platform is a wooden swing.  Messing around on the trampoline can be
amusing.  If you weren't engaged in mortal combat, this field would actually be
pretty fun.  In the background, there are balloons and giant plush teddy bears,
which have a remarkable resemblance to WaruMonzaemon.

= Tips =
Why did they put the best Digimon in the worst level?  Well, anyways, the
computer-controlled Terriermon shouldn't be too hard to defeat.  It has the
ability to glide, but you can use still use air special attacks.  I suggest
using the trampoline; it's not that helpful for battling on this field, but
it IS fun to mess with...

= Quirks =
None, but the Gotsumon pop up on the field as boulders that roll from platform
to platform.

= Background & Art =
The lower levels are in front of a series of arches and columns.  You can see
that it is nearing dusk outside.  Inside, flaming torches give the ruins a
shadow-filled orange hue.  In the top corners of the field, there are holes
in the brickwork that show a large, circular stained-glass window.

= Tips =
This is a very simple field layout, so I'm guessing the designers wanted you
to just duke it out with Agumon.  If you need to avoid attacks, continually
jump up or drop down from the four center levels (including the ground, of
course).  This is one of three fields where Wormmon can cling to the edges, so
use that to your advantage.

  ___ Solid Ground

  ,,, Sand

= Quirks =
The sand makes you move slower, so avoid as best you can.  There are hot-air
balloons on the top of the field that can get in your way.

= Background & Art =
The two combatants are on the remnants of a colosseum, perhaps the one in
which SkullGreymon made its debut.  In the back, you can see comically large
cacti, and even farther back is what looks to be a cruise ship.  Fluffy white
clouds are scattered throughout the blue sky.

= Tips =
For this field, I personally like to just station myself at those blocks at
the end and shoot off a special attack or air special attack at Veemon whenever
it comes near.  You are in danger of being cornered, however, so be careful.
Try to avoid the sand as much as possible.

= Quirks =
Everything is made of ice.  As you may guess, this makes things very slippery.
Moving around is especially difficult since the platforms are very short.
Luckily, you only slip if you run, so take it nice and slow.  Besides, you'll
be jumping around most of the time.

= Background & Art =
The platforms are actually just the flattened tops of towering columns of
crystal blue ice.  In the back, it's a night scene illuminated by draping
cords of lighted balls and skyscrapers.  The cords of light suggest some sort
of holiday or festival, held in or near a large metropolis.  Oddly enough,
there are traffic signals in the corners of the field.

= Tips =
Take advantage of the short, randomly-spaced platforms.  Do a lot of jumping
around to avoid attacks.  Of course, take the time to launch some attacks of
your own...

 |=====|  Conveyor Belt
  -----

 _i"""i_  Big Red Button
 -------

= Quirks =
The conveyor belts are the main feature of this field.  They may prove useful
at times and problematic at others.  One thing is that they can slow your
movement, but they should speed you up if you go in the same direction.  The
real problem is that they can carry away DSp and dump them in the gutters in
the corners.

The Big Red Button, or so I like to call it, can change the direction of the
belts.  It does so when it pops up, however, which takes a moment after a
Digimon lands on it.  You can stall the pop up by standing on it, if you want
to get rid of some red DSp.

= Background & Art =
Most everything here is a gloomy shade of gray.  In the background, partially
hidden by shadow, are tubes, wires, and other miscellaneous pieces of
machinery.  Each normal platform has a strip of yellow and black diagonal
stripes, which indicates a warning of danger.  One praticularly distinguishing
feature is the big greenish column towards the top of the field, with sliding
French doors on it (similar to those on elevators).

= Tips =
Control of the Big Red Button should be crucial here.  Try not to lose any of
those blue DSp to the gutters.  Wormmon can cling to the walls of this field,
so be ready to do some air attacking.  The two top corner platforms are hard
to reach, and thus a great hidding spot.

 |==| Mushroom Cap (Trampoline)

= Quirks =
There are tall mushrooms around this field with caps that act like the
trampoline as described in Toy Town (Battle 1).  These will give a huge boost
in your jumping ability.  Once in a while, the volcano in the background will
flare up and rain down fireballs at you.

= Background & Art =
There is much greenery about this place.  Vines work their way around the
wooden platforms, among large trees and above a floor tinted green from the
grass growing in it.  The background is a meld of organic silhouttes,
relfecting the seeming endlessness of the jungle.  Farther back is another
silhouette -- the ominous one of a smoking volcano.

= Tips =
The mushrooms are great for avoiding attacks.  If you can, use an item that
takes away movement control from your foe just before the volcano blows.  To
protect yourself during the eruption, stick mostly to the ground under the
platforms.

= Quirks =
On occasion, the sky will turn black and a lightning bolt will crash down.
Obviously, this can hurt a Digimon, but some bolts also break the thin
platforms (the shingles, not the statues), leaving you with less things to jump
on.

= Background & Art =
This battle is set in front of a Shinto temple, with its chracteristic archway,
eastern-style architecture, and guard statues.  I believe the thin platforms
to be the parts of the rooftops that stick out, since they look a lot like
shingles.  The guard statues are of carnivorous quadrapeds, most likely either
dogs or wild cats.  They blend well into the background, and I actually
didn't know I could jump on them the first time I battled on this field.

= Tips =
Stay off the roofs.  It's the best way to avoid the devestating effects of
being hit by lightning.  If you feel lucky enough, do the exact opposite.
Being on the roof might draw your opponent on the roof, too.  Then use an item
that takes away movement control from your foe, so it can't avoid the lightning
as easily.

 <\/> Milleniummon's Head
  ''

= Quirks =
THERE'S A HUGE MUTANT KILLING MACHINE FLOATING ABOVE YOUR HEAD!
Yes, Milleniummon is pretty much the only think that stands out in this field.
I guess the designers figured it was hard enough battling this thing without
other things distracting you or getting in your way.

= Background & Art =
The sky is blood red, fading into the blackness of night.  All of the
platforms, walls, and floor seem to be metal infused with futuristic lights
and devices.  Under the floor, a marquee is scrolling to the left, with the
simple message "WARNING!".  In the back, there is a broken-down metal wire
fence, with a large open gate in the center.

= Tips =
Well, this is it, folks.  Everything you worked towards comes down to this one
battle.  Unlike the ones you've had before, both combatants have a set number
of hits before it croaks.  You only have eight DSp, and when all of them are
taken by Milleniummon, you lose.  It is therefore imperative that you recover
every DSp that you give off.

Milleniummon can only be damaged by being hit in the head.  It takes an INSANE
number of hits before it's knocked out, but you can tell if you're close by
its color.  It first turns blue, then orange.  Try to work fast: you're only
given 4 minutes.

Since the thing this flying around, you'll need to do a lot of aerial
attacking and maneuvering.  It swings back and forth from one side to another,
so I suggest you stay on the side of your choice (on a platform, of course),
then jump out and attack when Milleniummon comes near.  My experiences have
shown that it tends to linger more on the right side.

Its many attacks can be devestating, but not impossible to prevent, evade, or
survive.  One common thing Milleniummon does is to form a ball of energy,
drift directly above you, and shoot it down.  If it hits, you are electricuted
and lose two DSp (25% of your health).  If you see it start this attack, run
and take cover under a platform.  The drawback is that the two lower platforms
will disappear if hit by this attack.

When Milleniummon stops in the center of the field, it will open its mouth and
shoot a big ball of dark energy directly at your current position.  Since the
attack moves in a straight line, stay in one place until the ball is
launched.  When it approaches, jump or drop out of the way.  If it hits you
anyway, your movement and attacking will be slowed.  Once you're in this slowed
state, Milleniummon will execute its last and best attack.  It retreats to the
background, where you can't attack it, and rains down a series of fireballs
at you, much like the volcano but a lot more damaging.

Your main strategy here would be not to be killed.  Avoid as many attacks as
possible, and recover any DSp you lose.  Keep your eyes open for Calumon,
who will help you greatly in this level.

---------------
 + The End ? + 
---------------
If you defeated Milleniummon, you will be brought to a screen with a green-on-
black motif and a pattern of 1s and 0s in the back (Exit Mr Hat?).  There's
an olympic placing stand in the front, with two random Digimon in the 3rd and
2nd places.  Your Digimon will then drop to the 1st place stand and do its
victory animation (the other two will do their respective jump animations).
Then Calumon flies in to circle around above.  At the end, Impmon comes out and
shoots a fireball at you (or an item).

You're then shown the credits, which aren't that bad to sit through.  Some of
the Digimon's holding and loiterng animations are shown.  To skip, just press
Start.  After that, a screen with "Congratulations" comes up, with a shower of
confetti in front of it.  If you got a high score, a letter will flash in the
upper left corner.  Use the control pad to select a letter, and press A to move
onto the next letter.  Once you've entered your 3-digit alias to grace the high
score table, a secret character will drop in (if you've earned one, that is).
Then it fades to a black screen with a password on it.  What the password is
for is still a mystery to me, but I've heard it might have to do with the
other Digimon video games.

 + Reader Feedback + 
---------------------
It has been brought to my attention of whether Terriermon's field is based on
Toy Town or Primary Village.  This has been an issue I've pondered over in
my first drafting of this guide, and (in my honest opinion) it seems as if the
field is a combination of both.

Primary Village has a bouncy ground and towers of giant toy blocks, features
which are reflected in the field.  However, if it were truly modelled after
Primary Village, wouldn't the main theme be cradles and DigiEggs?

On the other hand, this field resembles much like Toy Town, too.  Both areas
have balloons and giant teddy bears.  The only thing lacking is more toys.

So you see, it could go either way.  I was averse to making up some lame half-
half name (Toy Village, Primary Town, etc.), so I went with popular belief.
The other GameFAQs guide on this game, at the time, went with Toy Town, so I
did, too.
