I was surprised to see only one Chocograph FAQ made, and I have not seen one at
all that was not in actual chronological order of when you can get them, simply
in numerical order (which might confuse some people as to when they can
actually go and get the Chocograph dug up).  Hopefully this will help people
who are unsure as to when they can actually get to each Chocograph on the list.
 This is the order that I find them all, including all Mountain Cracks and Dive
spots (so now you can get the Debu Chocobo card as well).
I assume you know how to play the Hot and Cold game already; if you don't there
are already a few FAQ's about how to.  Here we go.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

First up are where you can find each Chocograph during the Hot and Cold
mini-game. The 'pieces' refer to Chocograph #20.  You have to find all 6 pieces
of it to make the Chocograph.

Chocograph/Mountain Crack/Dive area Chronological Order.

Go in this exact order of these, and you will find everything without much
trouble.  Do not go in numerical order; as you cannot get all of the
Chocographs that way.

'Field' refers to the regular, original Chocobo.
'Reef' refers to the first upgrade, the Blue version of Choco that can run over
shallow water.
'Mountain' refers to the second upgrade, the Red version of Choco that can run
over shallow water and over most land masses.

--Dead Peppers can be found in the Hot and Cold game after receiving the red
Mountain upgrade.  Dead Peppers are needed to enter the Mountain Cracks, Dive
Spots, as well as the Chocobo's Sky Garden.--

'Sea' refers to the third upgrade, the Black version of Choco that can run over
shallow water, most land masses, and deep water as well.
'Sky' refers to the final upgrade, the Gold version of Choco that can fly.  In
order to fly, ride Choco into a forest and then hit the accept button.  You can
only land while above a forest.

Most dive spots are signified by bubbles rippling in the ocean.
Mountain cracks are what they should be; cracks in a mountain wall.
