    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
    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.

       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
    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.

    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.

    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.

    = 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.

    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...

     _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.

    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.

    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.

    This is another menu item you're presented after the game's title screen.  It
    lets you change certain settings found in the game.
    
    = Time =
    -- 90 -- 120 -- 180 --
    The amount of seconds on the clock from Battle Start to Battle Finish.  Aim
    short if you plan to blitz-and-stall and long if you're just playing around or
    if you're writing a guide for this game... *cough*
    
    = Level =
    -- easy -- normal -- hard --
    How difficult you want the 1P Battles to be.  Set it on "easy" for getting the
    secret characters more easily, "hard" if you want more of a challenge.
    
    = Sound Test =
    -01-02-03-04-05-06-07-08-09-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-
    This lets you listen to the various tunes found in the game.
    
    = Erase Data =
    -- no -- yes --
    This option lets you clear all saved data, restoring the game to as it was
    when you first took it out of the box.  Since I have never selected "yes", I'm
    assuming it takes away your high scores and secret characters.
    
    = Return =
    --
    Closes the options menu and brings you back to the title screen.

    To access your game data, press B after you enter the game menu.  Note that
    this can also reset the game cartridge.  The other two instances will take you
    to the high score table and the Versus Record.

     + 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.
