Chararacter Story and Endings _____ Note: This is my movelist for the japanese playstation version of pocket fighter, but these moves will work for all versions including the arcade. Also, If anyone has the english translations for the japanese text in the character build mode, please e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks. _____ 1. Hidden Characters? Gouki (Akuma) and Dan are not seen on the character select screen, but they are there. All you have to do is move the cursor over Ryu and then move left and you've found Gouki. To the right of Ken is Dan. That wasn't that hard now was it? _____ 2. The Gems The colored gems are an essential part of Pocket Fighter's gameplay. The gems (when obtained) allow you to perform more powerful moves. You can very well play the game without getting many of them, but it is more fun with the more you collect. The gems come in three colors. The red gems increase your punch. The yellow ones increase your kick. The blue gems increase your special. The gems also come in three sizes. The small ones will only bring your level up a little bit. The medium sized gems will bring your level up about half. The large gems will bring you level up one full level. Once you go up in level you will be allowed to perform more powerful moves. For example, Lei-Lei's rising sword attack at level one is just one sword rising up from the ground. At level to the attack is improved to three swords. At level three it is maxed out at five swords that take up about half of the screen and produces major damage to your opponent. There are a number of ways to obtain the gems. Hitting your opponent will cause a gem to be knocked out of them. The more powerful the move, the more (or bigger) gems are knocked out of your opponent. Just a couple of hints when it comes to getting gems: if you charge up your special attack (by holding the circle button down), it will produce a big gem when you hit the other player. Doing your super special attacks (like Tabasa's proton cannon) will get you lots of small and medium sized gems. The chest in the middle of the screen will always give you big gems and sometimes up to three of them. You cam always jump high and hit the little monkey floating across the top of the screen. He will drop a number of small gems for you to collect. Collect gems also raises your super special attack gauge. Once again, the bigger the gem, the more it goes up. When you reach a number above zero, you can execute your super special attack. The higher the number, the more attacks you have left. Remember: the key to this game is the gems. If you don't collect them, you opponent will. _____ 3. Movelist The following moves are those that I have found thus far.

Flash Combos The flash combo is simply a series of hits on an opponent. They must always be started with a punch and then can be followed-up by a series of punches or kicks. When you execute a flash combo, your character will (usually) change costume with each blow. In the combo of (p,p,p,k), (p,p,k,k), (p,k,p,p), and (p,k,k,p) the last hit is always unblockable (this only means that if your opponent tries to block it, they will always be hit. If they move out of your range or counter it with another hit, your combo will fail.). I have made a combo description list for each character to help. The combo tree looks like this: punch----punch / \ / / \/ punch /\ / \ / \ / \ / \ / kick------kick (unblockable) punch \ punch----punch (unblockable) \ / \ / \ / \/ kick /\ \ / \ \ / \ kick------kick _______________________________________________________________________ Chun-Li Jill gunshot Jill bazooka blast Jill punch Schoolgirl push Love letter Punch Cheerleader Baton Hit June ring strike June ring strike June ring strike ________________________________________________________________________ Dan Right Punch Uppercut Left Punch Megaphone Yell Spirit Smash Punch Singer's slide Singing turns Elvis Slide opponent to stone (use a follow-up hit) Elvis kick Elvis mic stand hit ________________________________________________________________________ Felicia Rikuo Fishbone Attack Sasquatch punch Wolf Rockman Slide Rockman Blast Punch Turtle Samurai?

Character Story and Endings I know very little japanse so I have no way to translate the story and endings for each character. So, you ask, how could I figure them out? Well, you see, I have observed that the playstation version is merely a clone of the arcade version, so I pumped it with quarters and beat the game with every character (well, not yet). Hee hee. Chun-Li Dan Felicia Gouki Gouki spends every day on his island training, but within time, the island has become a tourist attraction and no longer suitable for Gouki's training. So Gouki goes in search for another training ground, one without vacationers. Gouki eventually comes across Lei-Lei. She tells him that she knows of a perfect place for him to train. The catch is, she must test his skills as a warrior before she will reveal the location. After Gouki defeats Lei-Lei, she takes him to the training grounds. It happens to be an abandoned graveyard deep within a forest. At night, zombies rise from their graves and roam freely. Gouki feels that this place may be just what he has been looking for. With the zombies, he can practice his killing techniques. He does just this and becomes one of the world's best fighters. Ibuki Ibuki is a ninja who spends all of her time training, but daydreams of running off to Tokyo and eating ice cream. So, she packs her ninja costume and leaves. In Tokyo she meets Sakura. Ibuki asks Sakura for directions to the nearest ice cream shop. Sakura finds it very cool to meet an actual ninja and tells Ibuki how excited she is. Ibuki is shocked that Sakura can see through her disguise (not that she really has one dressed in her ninja outfit). To silence her, Ibuki battles Sakura. When Ibuki defeats Sakura, Sakura tells Ibuki the way to the ice cream parlor. After getting her ice cream Ibuki comes across a guy who she believes is a ninja spy from an enemy clan. She challenges him but he refuses to fight. Instead, he gives she a baked potato (which she can't resist) to cool her temper. He runs off to his master leaving her to munch on her food. Ken Lei-Lei Lei-Lei and her sister Lin-Lin are in search of Darkstalkers. Unfortunately, they run out of money and need to look for a job. They look in the paper and see an add for a job offering 3 meals a day and 2 naps. Realizing that this is a good deal, Lei-Lei and Lin-Lin go off to find the person who placed the ad: Zangief. When they encounter Zangief, he tests Lei-Lei's might before he even consider them for the job. When Lei-Lei defeats Zangief, he gives the girls a job. They become members of the Russian Circus. Lei-Lei can now spin her umbrella faster than ever. The sisters have long forgotten their task of looking for Darkstalkers. Morrigan Morrigan is sitting at home looking at a picture of Chun-Li. She comments that is not pretty at all. Morrigan likes to insult girls and then sends her goons after them to add to her collection. This time she decides to go after someone herself, Chun-Li. Chun-Li and Morrigan meet at a fast food place while ordering a meal. Morrigan wants no MSG or garlic in her food, but Chun-Li wants tons of garlic. Morrigan asks how anyone could want so much garlic and Chun-Li replies that a policewoman needs a lot of it for energy. Realizing that this is the same woman she is looking for, Morrigan challenges Chun-Li to a fight. When Morrigan wins the battle, she declares herself the most beautiful woman in the world. Then, Lillith walks by with love-struck men following her. None of the men notice Morrigan at all. Morrigan wonders how any man could like such a puny, flat-chested girl like Lillith. She then reassures herself that Lillith is just cute, but not as beautiful as her. Tired, Morrigan decides to go home, planning to take care of Lillith another day. Ryu Sakura Tabasa Tabasa is a student of magic. While going through one of her books she discovers that she needs a magic wand from the Shou family to perform an appearance-altering spell. Knowing that any girl would die to have this wand (including herself), Tabasa goes in search of Lei-Lei, a descendent of the Shou family. When Tabasa encounters Lei-Lei, Tabasa demands the wand. Lei-Lei only asks for a meal in return, but having no money, Tabasa decides to try to take it by force. When Tabasa beats Lei-Lei, Tabasa takes the wand and goes back home to try out her new toy. She reads the instruction manual and it tells her to wave the stick in the air and hit herself on the head with it. Tabasa does this and is turned into a small, squat bird. She finishes reading the instructions which explain to be careful because when you have used the wand, you must stay in your new form for 30 days. Angry at the company that made the wand (The Anarakaris Magic Co.), she vows to get them once she changes back (and if she ever comes across those magicians). Zangief _____ Well, that's it.
