    INTRODUCTION:
    ==============================================================================
    
    During the first time at Lindblum Castle in Final Fantasy IX (FF9), there will
    be a scene with Zidane and Garnet at the telescope.  When you aim the telescope
    at a forest area, Zidane will talk about catching a chocobo.  Soon, you will be
    able to start the Chocobo sidequest, which is connected to a few other
    sidequests of FF9, offering you some good rewards.
    
    Unlike other FF games, in FF9, you have only 1 chocobo whom you call from
    chocobo tracks.  The chocobo also remains in the same area when you dismount,
    and digs for treasures when you play the "Chocobo Hot and Cold" game.
    
    "Hot and Cold" is a game in the USA (and maybe other countries of the world),
    which seems popular in elementary schools.  In the game, a player hides an
    object for another player to find.  If the searching player is far from the
    hidden object, the hiding player and other present players say "cold."  As 
    the searching player moves closer to the item, they say "hot."  The
    searching player then searches within the area until the object is found.
    "Chocobo Hot and Cold" is played similarly.  While on the chocobo, the player
    searches the ground as the chocobo's beak detects treasures.  The chocobo lets
    players know how close they are to a treasure.
    
    The Chocobo quest is required to complete the Mognet Central and Ozma quests.
    The optional battle with Ozma will be the hardest in FF9, but the Friendly
    Monsters sidequest will make the fight easier.  That's why this guide will
    cover the Chocobo, Mognet Central, and Friendly Monsters quests.  It will not
    include the party formation or battle strategies for Ozma since there are many
    different methods, depending on players and situations.

    CHOCOBOS
    ==============================================================================
    After you leave Lindblum Dragon's Gate, head east on the world map, across the
    land and over a bridge to King Ed Plains, where you'll see some chocobo tracks
    and a dome-shaped forest, which is Chocobo's Forest. Enter to meet the moogle,
    Mene, who will give you a Gysahl Green.  Exit the forest and stand on the
    chocobo tracks to use the Gyshal Green from the Item menu.  This will call your
    chocobo.  Then game will have chocobo navigating directions.  Now push X to
    mount the chocobo and enter Chocobo's Forest again.
    
    The default name for your chocobo is Choco.  Talk to Mene and choose to get the
    secret.  He will provide you with information about the "Chocobo Hot and Cold"
    game.
    
    
    =============================
    CHOCOBO COLORS AND ABILITIES
    =============================
    
    Choco's Abilities depend on his color.  Abilities upgrades are found in
    Chocograph treasures that take Choco to a dream world.  There, Choco will have
    new Abilities added (and colors changed), opening up more places to travel and
    explore.  Below are the colors and Abilities of Choco.
    
    -Yellow Field: Choco starts with the ability to run on plains, dirt, forests,
    beaches, and deserts (wherever your party can walk on the world map).
    -Blue Reef: Choco can leave the land from beaches to run in reefs, shallow
    (light blue) water.
    -Red Mountain: Choco can run through mountains.
    -Black Sea: Choco can swim through the sea, deep (dark blue) water.
    -Gold Sky: Choco can fly by taking off from forests and land in forests.
    
    
    ===========================
    "CHOCOBO HOT AND COLD" GAME
    ===========================
    
    Rules
    =====
    You can pay Mene 60 gil for 1 minute (60 seconds) to let you dig for treasures
    with Choco in Chocobo's Forest, Lagoon (after getting the Black Ocean Ability),
    and Air Garden.  Before you get the Black Sea Ability, you pay 30 gil for 30
    seconds in Chocobo's Lagoon.  Every treasure you find will be added to your
    inventory, and earn you points (the better the treasure, the higher the
    points).  These points will raise Choco's beak level and allow you to trade
    for items when you talk to Mene.
    
    The game will give you playing instructions everytime you pay to play "Chocobo
    Hot and Cold."  To dig for treasures, press the Square button and you should
    see and hear the following sounds:
    
    -Kweh: There is no treasure nearby.  Search other areas.
    -Kweh!?: You are closer to the treasure.  Search near this area.
    -Kwehhh!?: The treasure is very close.  Check every 1 or 2 steps.
    -K-KWEHHH!!!: You found the treasure, and a Depth Level meter will appear,
    	showing how deep the treasure is varied.  Better items are buried
    	deeper.  Keep digging until the meter reaches 0, and the treasure is
    	obtained.  You will hear a sound.
    
    The speed the meter decreases depends on Choco's Beak Level: the higher the 
    level the faster the meter decreases, meaning Choco digs faster.  Choco's Beak
    Level increases as more treasures are found (and points are gained).
    
    You can only search and dig up 1 treasure at a time.  After you find the
    treasure, there will be another one.  You can dig up to 8 treasures in each
    game you pay for.  Before getting the Black Sea Ability, you can only dig up
    to 4 treasures in Chocobo's Lagoon.
    
    Points
    ======
    You get a certain number of points for each item you dig up in Chocobo's Forest.
    For the same item, you get twice the number of points in Chocobo's Lagoon, and 3
    times the number of points in Chocobo's Air Garden.
    
    You can also receive bonus points during each game:
    -After digging up 4 items in a game, you will be given 10 more seconds to play,
    and the amount of points you receive for each item you dig up will be doubled.
    -If you dig up 2 items within 5 seconds, you get the "5 Second Bonus Points."
    You will get 5 bonus points in Chocobo's Forest, 10 in Chocobo's Lagoon, and 15
    in Chocobo's Air Garden.
    -If you dig up all 8 (4 in Chocobo's Lagoon before the Black Sea Ability)
    treasures, you will receive many bonus points, depending on the time remaining
    and where you are digging.
    
    To trade the points for items, talk to Mene and select the trade points option.
    Then select the item you want.  Each item costs a different amount of points.
    
    
    =====================
    ITEMS FOR CHOCOBO USE
    =====================
    
    Gyshal Greens
    -------------
    These are needed to call Choco at chocobo tracks on the world map.  They can be
    bought from Mene, dug up in "Chocobo Hot and Cold" games, gained from some
    monsters in battles, or found as treasures during the main quest.
    
    Dead Peppers
    ------------
    These are required to find treasures in special spots on the world map.  They
    can be dug up in the "Chocobo Hot and Cold" game after the Red Mountain
    upgrade.  If you have found all the Chocograph treasures, you can obtain
    infinite Dead Peppers by talking to the Gold Chocobo left of Fat Chocobo in
    Chocobo's Paradise.  Below are the special spots where you feed Choco a Dead
    Pepper to find treasures.
    
    -Dive Spot: These shown as bigger bubbles floating out of the ocean.  The Black
    Sea Ability is required.
    -Mountain Cracks: These are shown as bigger and thicker cracks and lines in
    mountains.  The Red Mountain Ability is required.
    -Shadow: This is a spot of shadow, providing entrance to Chocobo's Air Garden.
    The Gold Sky Ability is required.
    
    
    ============
    CHOCOGRAPHS
    ============
    
    Chocograph Information
    ----------------------
    When you first start playing "Chocobo Hot and Cold" in Chocobo Forest, you might
    encounter a treasure that is buried very deep.  After digging it up, the screen
    will say that it is a "Stone With Patterns."  After the game time runs out, talk
    to Mene, who will explain to you about Chocographs and their functions.  In a
    way, it is "Chocobo Hot and Cold" on the world map without any time limits.
    
    To look for Chocograph treasures, the Chocograph must be equipped, or Choco will
    not dig in the world map.  This is done through the Chocograph menu.  The
    Chocograph menu can be accessed by talking to Choco and selecting Chocograph
    menu option while in Chocobo Forest, Lagoon, and Air Garden.  To access the
    Chocograph menu on the world map, mount Choco and press the triangle button.
    
    You might not find a Chocograph in every game you pay for, so just keep playing
    and digging at each chocobo location until Mene says that Choco cannot find
    anymore Chocographs there.  Then, go look for the treasures for as many dug-up
    Chocographs as you can.  Finally head for the next chocobo location to dig up
    more Chocographs. 
    
    Chocograph Pieces
    -----------------
    The Chocograph Pieces make up Chocograph #20 Mist Ocean.  This Chocograph can
    be completed only after all 6 pieces are found.  The clues written on each piece
    talk about Chocobo's Air Garden
    
    
    ===================
    CHOCOBO'S LOCATIONS
    ===================
    
    Chocobo's Forest
    ================
    -At King Ed's Plains, east of Mist Continent Qu's Marsh and a bridge
    -After getting the Mountain Ability, you can also search for treasures
    on the 2 side ledges.  Approach them and push X or square when you see a '!'
    
    
    Chocobo's Lagoon
    ================
    -Take the Blue Narciss or airship to Salvage Archipelego and land on the island
    with a beach and chocobo tracks (it's north of Chocobo's Lagoon)
    -On your first visit to Chocobo's Lagoon, Choco will have only the Blue Reef
    Ability, because the Chocograph with the Red Mountain Ability (Chocograph #12
    Dawn Lagoon) is dug up here
    -If you only have the Blue Reef Ability, follow the shallows north towards
    Daguerreo and Forgotten Continent, then south towards Palmnell Island
    -On Palmnell Island, there will be a beach to the plains and an opening to a
    cave
    -On your first visit, the map location window will show a '?' at the cave

    Chocobo's Air Garden
    ====================
    
    Clues on Chocograph Pieces:
    ---------------------------
    Below are the clues written on each Chocograph Piece.  I have included 
    explanations for each of them.  The clues are about Ozma and the 5 possible
    locations of Chocobo Air Garden.

    your way." -Cid I- (Upper Left Piece)

    Salvage Archipelago island with chocobo tracks, northwest of Chocobo Lagoon

    Castle and Forgotten Continent Qu's Marsh, directly east of the Water Shrine
    
    Getting to Chocobo's Air Garden
    -------------------------------
    -Chocobo's Air Garden does not remain in the same place everytime
    -It can be found at 5 different locations of the world map, and there will be a
    small spot of shadow at its location
    -Fly Choco (Gold Sky Ability required) over the shadow and use a Dead Pepper
    -Choco will jump high into the sky and automatically take you to Chocobo Air
    Garden
    -After your first visit to Chocobo Air Garden, there will be a dot for it on
    the world map, but the location will still change everytime.
    
    Accessing Ozma
    --------------
    -Head for the little north island of Chocobo's Air Garden, and try to enter the
    space in the rocks
    -Mene will talk about danger
    -Select the option to continue, and the fight with Ozma will begin
    
    
    Chocobo's Paradise

    -On Uako Island, a small island in the northwest corner of the world map
    (not visible on the map where you press the "select" button)
    -Find a Mountain Crack and use a Dead Pepper to find and enter a cave
    -Inside, you can talk and play cards with all the other chocobos
    
    
    ========================
    CHOCOGRAPH TREASURE HUNT
    ========================
    Going in numerical order is not recommended since you cannot dig the chocographs
    up in numerical order, especially if you start the quest before getting the
    Hilda Garde 3.  Below is the suggested order you should dig and search for the
    chocographs and treasures on the world map, especially if you are playing along
    with the main plot quest (meaning starting as soon as you head for the Chocobo 
    Forest right after leaving the Lindblum Dragon's Gate for the first time in 
    Disc 1). Red Scarlet wrote a guide with a good suggested order, and the order 
    in this guide is similar with a little variation.  If you would like estimates
    of the Chocograph treasure locations, and still have some fun in searching for
    them, Red Scarlet's Chocograph Locations guide would suit you.  This section of
    the guide will include more details to the exact spot of each Chocograph
    treasure.
