    ================
    I. Introduction
    ================
    
    I one day decided to create this guide, since there are none on GameFAQs. I did
    it because I wanted to help people with the locations of the Monty Moles, which
    you can find throughout the game. They're optional, however, but they give you
    some useful items that you may need as you progress through the game. The next
    section will have the list of where all of the Monty Moles can be found, along
    with how to get to them, and other sorts of information. Enjoy the guide!
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    =========================
    II. Monty Mole Locations
    =========================
    
    This section will list the location of each and every Monty Mole in the game,
    along with information on how to find them, and other stuff. Also, take note
    that if you find a Monty Mole, you have to talk to it for it to give you any
    thing at all.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #1
    Location: Hoohoo Village
    Items Obtained: Golden Mushroom
    How To Find: Head one screen west from where Blablanadon is (after completing
                 the Hoohoo Mountain). Then, in that area, just keep going west.
                 Go into the entrance you'll find. Inside that cave, make your way
                 through it, and to the end of it (if you really need help getting
                 through, read the Walkthrough). You will end up outside. Outside,
                 head all the way east and enter the next cave. Inside that cave,
                 use the Fire Dash ability to knock over the fat Koopa Troopa.
    
                 Once he's knocked over, go all the way north, and High Jump onto
                 the ledge there. Then, you'll see the Monty Mole.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #2
    Location: Hoohoo Mountain
    Items Obtained: Max Nuts
    How To Find: You need the Ultra Hammers before you can reach this Monty Mole.
                 Once you have them, go all the way to the northwestern part of
                 Beanbean. Somewhere in one of those areas is a path going up to
                 Hoohoo Mountain. Take that path and follow the maze-like area,
                 until you end up on Hoohoo Mountain. Then, go east and smash the
                 black rocks in your way. Continue east, and head up the stairs,
                 then enter the next area. In that area, go all the way north.
    
                 Keep going north and into the next area. In that area, go east,
                 and you'll see another black rock. Smash it, and go south and to
                 the next area. Then, follow the path, and you'll find a Monty
                 Mole that gives you some Max Nuts.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #3
    Location: North Beanbean
    Items Obtained: Wool Trousers
    How To Find: This one is going to take awhile to get, as well. Head to the
                 North Beanbean quadrant. Once there, search around the northern
                 part of the area until you find a blue orb. Electrify the orb with
                 the Thunderhand. Doing this will cause a platform nearby to raise.
                 High Jump onto that platform, and then enter the cave there. Once
                 inside the cave, go east and have Mario stand on the top ledge,
                 and Luigis tand on the lower ledge. Then, position both brothers
                 under the shadows of the Simu-Blocks.
    
                 Then, jump with both brothers at the same time to hit the blocks.
                 This will cause a bridge to appear. Have Mario jump off of the
                 platform, and go east and cross the bridge. Now, have Mario jump
                 up the two platforms there, then have Luigi jump onto the first
                 one. Then, have Mario jump on the third platform, and make Luigi
                 go off of the platform he's on. From there, have Mario and Luigi
                 both move slightly east, and north at the same time.
    
                 If done correctly, both brothers should be positioned under the
                 shadow of each Simu-Block. Hit them at the same time. This will
                 make another bridge appear. Go all the way east and cross it. Now,
                 go all the way east, and jump up the platforms with both of the
                 brothers. Jump across the gap to the left platform, but make sure
                 that one brother falls down the pit there. Position both of the
                 brothers under the Simu-Blocks, and hit them to create another
                 bridge. Head southeast and cross it. You will finally find the
                 Monty Mole that gives you Wool Trousers.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #4
    Location: North Beanbean
    Items Obtained: Iron Pants
    How To Find: Head to the same outside area described above, at Monty Mole #3.
                 Then, head east and enter the next area. In that area, head east,
                 and then jump up the ledges to the north. You should come to a
                 small gate with an ! Block past the gate. Have Luigi become Mole
                 sized, and pass through the gate. Pop back out, and hit the !
                 Block to open the gate. With Mario, pass through it and reunite
                 with Luigi. Now, High Jump onto the western platform, and then
                 follow the path, and enter the next area.
    
                 In the next area, go south, and Spin Jump to the ledge to the
                 south. Then, Spin Jump across the next two or so platforms to the
                 west. Cross the bridge you'll come to, then go north. Use Luigi's
                 Thunder Shock ability, and push the Boo statue with Luigi's back.
                 A bridge will be created. Cross it, and you will find a cracked
                 wall. Hit the wall to break it open, then go inside. In this cave,
                 High Jump to the platform, and go all the way north.
    
                 Have Mario become micro-sized, and then jump through the hole in
                 the wall. In the next area, go east, and make your way through the
                 side-scrolling area. At the end, you'll find the Monty Mole. Go
                 through the pipe at the end to return to the start of this area.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #5
    Location: North Beanbean
    Items Obtained: 1-Up Mushroom
    How To Find: Yet another Monty Mole is in North Beanbean. However, you need to
                 go to Northeast Beanbean to reach the right area. Anyway, go to
                 the entrance of Teehee Valley. From there, head all the way west,
                 and enter the next area. In that area, enter the cave there. Once
                 inside that cave, go north and jump up the ledges, then make Mario
                 micro-sized, and enter the hole in the wall. In that area, go east
                 and make your way through the fun side-scrolling area. At the end,
                 you will find a Monty Mole.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #6
    Location: North Beanbean
    Items Obtained: High-End Badge
    How To Find: Go to the same area described above, but DO NOT go down the green
                 pipe. Instead, go to the last yellow platform. When it rises all
                 the way up, jump to the east. You will be on a small platform.
                 Jump to the east, and then go all the way down the long path.
                 Eventually, you'll drop down some ledges. Continue east, and you
                 will find a Monty Mole, who gives you the rare item. If you keep
                 going east after that, you will find the pipe that takes you to
                 the start of the side-scrolling area.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #7
    Location: Northeast Beanbean
    Items Obtained: Red Pepper, Green Pepper
    How To Find: First, go to the entrance of Teehee Valley. From where you see the
                 entrance, go east. You'll see a stairway-type thing going up. Jump
                 up the ledges, and then go to the edge of the platform. Spin Jump
                 to the platform across, then go north. In the next area, jump up
                 the platform, then go east and make sure Mario is in the front.
                 Have him stand by the water pump to fill him up with water. Now,
                 go east and stand by the small grass sprout.
    
                 Have Luigi electrify Mario. He'll spit out the water, and the
                 sprout will grow into a platform! You can do it to all of the
                 sprouts in this area. After you're done, go to the second sprout
                 that grew. High Jump onto the platform, and then High Jump onto
                 the other platform. Talk to the Monty Mole there to recieve your
                 prize of two good items!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #8
    Location: Joke's End
    Items Obtained: Red Pepper, Green Pepper
    How To Find: The next Monty Mole you cannot find until the second-to-last main
                 level in the game. Anyway, in Joke's End, High Jump to the ledge
                 to the left. Then, enter the next area. In that area, go all the
                 way north and enter the next area. In the next area, you will see
                 a whirlwind that moves by the stairs. When it gets close, Spin
                 Jump into it, and move left and right, constantly moving in and
                 out of the whirlwind. Then, you'll eventually see a platform to
                 the left. Land on it, and then you will find the Monty Mole.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #9
    Location: Oho Oasis
    Items Obtained: 1-Up Super
    How To Find: From the entrance of Joke's End, surf one screen south, and
                 another screen west. The whirlpool in that area takes you to the
                 Seabed, so surf into it. Swim south, and over the spikes, then
                 swim west. Enter the yellow pipe, and climb it to the top. You'll
                 end up outside at the Oho Oasis. Talk to the Monty Mole there to
                 get a 1-Up Super.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Monty Mole #10
    Location: Bowser's Castle
    Items Obtained: Golden Mushroom
    How To Find: This is the last Monty Mole, and it's as easy to find as the one
                 in Joke's End. In one room of the castle, there are a couple of
                 whirlwinds you will need to use, in order to reach a platform
                 with a door. Once you get to that platform, ignore the door and
                 continue east. Use the next whirlwind that will appear, and do
                 like you did before: enter and exit the whirlwind over and over.
                 At the end, you'll find the last Monty Mole!
