                                   Perfect Pets:
         The Dietary Guide to Raising the Best Possible Monster Companions
    
    
            Any casual Legend of Mana player can easily select a decent Pet
    monster and raise it as an effective companion with decent stats and maybe a
    helpful Personality or two.  Most people will be content with this charming
    and effective addition to their party.
            This FAQ is not for them.
            Some gamers will find themselves obsessed, compelled, and drawn beyond
    their control to raise their Pets to their absolute maximum potential.  They
    will be unsatisfied with anything less than perfection in their monster
    allies.  They will want their Rabite to be powerful enough to drop the average
    Land Dragon.  If you fit this description, I have written this guide to help
    you achieve the flawless Pet raising skills that you crave.
            The FAQ you are about to read is in no way all-inclusive.  There are
    many aspects of Pet raising that are already covered in detail elsewhere.
    For instance, you will not see anything about Eggs and the best places to
    catch them.  You will not find explanations of the basic functions of your
    Corral.  You will not see discussion of the relative quality of a specific
    species of Pet over another.  I am assuming that those of you who are serious
    about making your Pets the best they can be already know about those things.
    If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to basic Pet care, ANelson has
    written an amazing and informative one that, even in its incomplete form, is
    filled with useful stuff.  Maybe if we all ask him very nicely, he'll submit
    it to GameFAQs as a 'beta version.'
            Please note that while I have extensively tested the theories and
    strategies I describe herein, I can claim ownership of only an extremely
    limited few of them.  Most of the information you'll find here originated from
    the LoM masters that grace the GameFAQs boards.  If this FAQ is helpful, thank
    them.  If it is useless and confusing, blame me.

    1. Natural Pet Growth
    
            In order to calculate a way for your Pet to reach its optimum
    potential, you are going to need to design a diet that enhances the Pet's
    natural statistic growth.  Every species of Pet has it's own unique pattern of
    stat growth.  There are two ways to determine this.  You could write down the
    starting stats of your Pet, save the game, raise the Pet to level 5, subtract
    the starting stats from the new stats, and divide the results by 4.  Or, you
    can simply refer to the wonderful chart done by AsianGrinch showing the growth
    rates for each kind of Pet, which he has been kind enough to grant me
    permission to reprint here.  Because of the massive size of the chart, I've
    placed it at the end of this document.
    
    
    2. Understanding Growth Bonuses and Penalties
    
            The first thing to keep in mind when working out a diet for your Pet
    is that the most a given statistic can possibly increase in one level is 3.75.
    Therefore, feeding, say, a Polter Box three Rocket Papayas is pointless.
    Polter Boxes have a natural growth rate of 0.75 Charm per level, and Rocket
    Papayas add +2 Charm.  Half of the second Rocket Papaya's bonus and all of the
    third would be lost.  Instead, feeding it a single Rocket Papaya and a
    Needlettuce is not only a more efficient way to get the same total Charm
    growth, but also gives the additional bonus of +1 to Defense from the
    Needlettuce.
            The second thing you need to understand is that a statistic can never
    actually lose points when gaining a level.  Giving three Lilipods to a Pet
    with a natural growth rate of 0.25 in Magic will not cause the Pet to lose
    2.75 points of Magic upon gaining a level.  It will simply cause a growth of 0
    in that stat.
            There is an important consideration here, though.  When a Pet gains a
    level, the total cumulative bonuses and penalties given by the items in its
    Feedbox are not just lumped together.  They are applied in the same order that
    the items are given.  Let's look at a Land Dragon as an example here.  Land
    Dragons gain 1.5 points of Power naturally each level.  If you were to place a
    Dialaurel and two Honey Onions in his Feedbox in that order, he would gain a
    bonus of +2 Power from the Dialaurel, then receive a penalty of -1 Power from
    each of the Honey Onions.  The total Power gain that level would be 1.5,
    exactly as if he had not been fed at all.  However, if you place the Honey
    Onions in the Feedbox before you place the Dialaurel, the Land Dragon will be
    assessed the penalty of -1 Power per Honey Onion, dropping his gain to 0
    (remember, Pets can't lose points), which is then increased to 2 from the
    Dialaurel.  While a difference of 0.5 points might not seem like a big deal,
    it's vitally important to those who are interested in maximizing the potential
    of their Pets.
    
    
    3. Understanding Personality Gain
    
            Personalities are probably the most misunderstood aspect of Pet
    raising, which is understandable due to the fact that they are totally
    misrepresented in nearly every available source of information, especially the
    in-game Produce Encyclopedia.  Take a look at your Produce Encyclopedia.
    Almost every Produce item is shown as having some sort of effect on one of the
    eight Personalities.  However, after quite a bit of testing, I've found only
    a few Produces that actually manifest a Personality.  These are:
    
        Bellgrapes: Scheming
        Mangolephant: Aggressive and/or Arrogant
        Squalphin: Friendly and/or Lonely
    
            Further, while I have not yet replicated these results, I am assured
    that the following Produce items will manifest Personalities:
    
        Diceberries: Aggressive
        Loquat-Shoes: Scheming and/or Lazy
        Applesocks: Calm and/or Indecisive
        Orange'opus: Scheming and/or Lazy
    
            Now, you need to be aware that Personality gain follows its own rules
    and is completely different than stat bonuses.  First of all, it's very
    random. A single feeding of three Squalphins could result in Friendly, Lonely,
    both, or none.  Also, while three Squalphins have a higher chance of
    manifesting a Personality than one, I am still struggling to understand how
    Personality stacks over a period of several feedings.  The random nature makes
    it extremely difficult to be able to tell if a given feeding has increased the
    amount of a given Personality trait in a Pet.
            Unlike stat growth, Personality change occurs the moment a Produce
    item is placed in the Feedbox, NOT when a level is gained.  So if a Pet is put
    out to graze and fed Bellgrapes, Mangolephants and/or Squalphins, you can go
    right out and pet it to see if it got the Personality that you wanted, no EXP
    required.  You can even do this at level 99, since the Feedbox is still
    accessible for one last feeding.
            If you want a Pet that is Aggressive, Arrogant, Friendly, Lonely,
    Scheming or any combination of the above, the process is simple, but it
    requires a little patience.  Taking the random nature of Personality
    manifestations to it's logical extreme, you can get a Pet to level 99, save
    the game, and place three Personality causing Produce items into its Feedbox.
    Now, without ever leaving your Corral, simply go out and pet it.  If your Pet
    has gained the Personalities you wanted, wonderful.  If not, simply reset,
    reload and try feeding and petting it again.  However, I still haven't found a
    quick, reliable way to apply Calm to a Pet.  I suspect that Applesocks have
    the potential to manifest the Calm Personality over a period of several
    feedings, but I haven't yet managed this.  If you have a Calm Pet, please tell
    me about it.  It would help immensely to know exactly how people have managed
    to manifest this Personality trait.
            Finally, ANelson has found that Aggressive, Friendly, Calm and
    Scheming can be removed from a Pet, but Arrogant, Lonely, Indecisive and Lazy
    cannot.  However, since we are concerned with maximizing our Pet's stat
    growth, we can't afford to be wasting levels removing Personalities.  Instead,
    just be careful not to manifest an unwanted Personality in the first place.
    
    
    4. Produce Chart
    
            This is a combined and slightly altered copy of the Produce Stats
    Chart translated by Hecatonchires and the Produce Percentage Chart translated
    by D. Short.
    	I've included the percentages per Seed combination and Elements of
    each Produce exactly as they appear in D. Short's chart.  While the
    percentages are extremely useful while attempting to grow a lot of the rarer
    Produce items, I do not yet completely understand the Element numbers.  Simply
    be aware that if, for example, you are trying to grow Applesocks on a Land
    with no Shade, they will mature more slowly than on a Land with full Shade.
    	TIP: In nearly every case where you see two of the same Seeds
    resulting in a given percentage, a single Seed of that type will result in the
    same percentage chance.  It'll just grow three Produce items instead of four.
    You can use this to your advantage especially when growing Produce items that
    require only the relatively rare Flat Seeds.  Giving Trent two sets of one
    Seed each will reduce your Seed use by half while only reducing your harvest
    by two Produce items.

            Some things to consider: The Seed combinations shown are not the only
    possible combinations that will result in that Produce, but may be considered
    the best ones.  Also, as you can see, Toadstoolsheds are almost totally
    worthless.  Don't bother using Spiny Seeds on them unless you enjoy collecting
    rare items.  Certainly don't feed them to your Pets.  Further, don't waste
    Seeds and time growing the 'playing card suit' Produce items (Heart Mint,
    Spade Basil, Dialaurel and Gold Clover) or Mush-in-a-Boxes.  You can just buy
    them at the Bone Fortress.  In fact, don't even waste Lucre on
    Mush-in-a-Boxes, they don't do anything at all for Pets.
            This chart is intended as a quick reference.  It contains all the
    Produce information that I use to formulate Pet diets.  However, sometimes it
    is helpful to see the statistic growth rates in a larger, more readable chart.

    5. Formulating a Diet
    
            Okay, now comes the fun part.  You are going to need some very basic
    math skills here and the patience to check and revise your diet plan a few
    times.  Basically, your goal is to get all of your Pet's basic stats to 99
    while increasing the DEF stats as much as possible.  The problem is that DEF
    stats have a much lower maximum gain per level than normal stats.  The most
    you can get a given DEF stat to increase is 1 point per level.
            There are two methods for raising DEF stats.  The first is to use two
    Cabbadillos and a Bug Meat or Dialaurel.  This will give 1 point per level to
    Strike, Slash and Pierce defense and 0.5 points per level in Magic defense.
    This method is reccomended for any Pet that has a low natural growth rate in
    the three physical defense stats.  The other method is to use a single
    Cabbadillo and two Bug Meats or Dialaurels.  This method gives 0.5 plus the
    Pet's natural growth rate in Strike, Slash and Pierce and a rate of 1 per
    level for Magic.  Great for any Pet with a natural growth rate of 0.5 in the
    physical stats, such as the Specter or Mad Mallard.
            Now, as a side effect of all those Cabbadillos and Bug Meats, your
    Pet's Charm growth is going to be at very least severely crippled.  Most Pets
    will gain no Charm at all during the DEF raising process.  Also be aware that
    only Rabites will gain Luck naturally, so there's usually not going to be any
    Luck gain either.  Therefore, what you are going to have to do is get both
    Luck and Charm to 99 in as few levels as possible.
            Bug Meats can also cause Power problems, but Dialaurels easily
    counteract this.  For the first method, use Dialaurels until Power hits 99,
    then switch to Bug Meats for the Skill and Spirit boost.  For the second
    method, simply put the Dialaurel into the Feedbox after the Bug Meat and your
    minimum Power growth will be a more than acceptable 2 per level.
            Finally, if your Pet does not have high natural growth rates in both
    Magic and HP, you're going to have to provide a boost to these stats before
    beginning to work on DEF.  Fortunately, this can usually be done during the
    Charm and Luck raising process.
            Let me show you all this in action.  This is a diet that I worked out
    for my Polter Box.  Since everyone needs a Polter Box, it might as well be a
    good one, right?
    
    Level 1
        10    2     3     3               DEF: 1/3/3/3
        10    3     3     5
    
            These stats are shown as they appear on the Status screen, with Power,
    Skill, Defense and Magic on the top row and HP, Spirit, Charm and Luck on the
    bottom.
            For the first 20 levels, I fed my Polter Box two Gold Clovers and one
    Rocket Papaya.  Using these Produce items, my total bonuses were +1 to Magic,
    +2 to Charm, and +3.75 to Luck (remember that 3.75 is the maximum possible
    gain).  At the end of this part my Pet's stats looked like this:
    
    Level 21
        40    47    18    38              DEF: 1/13/13/13
        40    18    58    80
    
            Now, I finished boosting Luck while at the same time maximizing my
    Charm gain and getting a few extra Pierce defense points using a Lizard Meat,
    a Rocket Papaya, and a Gold Clover for the next ten levels.
    
    Level 31
        55    59.5  35.5  48              DEF: 1/18/23/18
        55    18    95.5  99
    
            At this point, I only needed 3.5 more Charm points and I could begin
    my serious Defense boosting.  I chose to use a Cabbadillo and two Rocket
    Papayas, in that order.  The Cabbadillo negates my natural Charm growth of
    0.75, but chasing it with two Rocket Papayas brings it back up to 3.75.
    
    Level 32
        56.5  59.75 37.25 50.75           DEF: 1.5/19/24/18
        56.5  19.75 99    99
    
            I finished it up with 67 levels of a Cabbadillo, a Bug Meat, and a
    Dialaurel, in that order.  The bonuses from the Cabbadillo and Bug Meat took
    care of the Polter Box's slow rate of growth in Skill while boosting the
    pitiful 19.75 in Spirit.  The Dialaurel provides the same Magic Defense boost
    as the Bug Meat while compensating for the Power penalty, and since my Polter
    Box already had 99 Charm, I could ignore the total penalty of -2 per level to
    that stat.  Finally, I saved the game and gave three Squalphins at level 99,
    and got both Friendly and Lonely on the first try.  My Polter Box ended up
    looking like this:
    
    Level 99 (Friendly/Lonely)
        99    99    99    99              DEF: 35/86/91/85
        99    99    99    99              Total: 297 DEF points
    
            Not bad for a walking treasure chest.  The only problem is that you
    are going to need to grow 33 Rocket Papayas, which is not an easy task.  In
    fact, you'll probably spend more time doing that then actually leveling your
    Pet.  You didn't think this was going to be a breeze, did you? ;)
            Check out the next section for a different approach.
    
    
    6. Sample Diets
    
            This section will contain as many complete, tested diets as I can get.
    I only have a few at this point, so please feel free to send in diets for your
    favorite Pet.  Also, if you see something in any of these that can be
    improved, don't hesitate to let me know.  Every diet I've ever tried gets
    revised several times, and I am sure that some of you will see something I've
    missed.

                                                (265 effective)
    
    A tribute to the infamous Black Rabite of Seiken Densetsu 3.  If you don't
    want an Aggressive/Arrogant Rabite, you can always be EXTREMELY patient during
    the levels that involve Mangolephants and reset/retry throughout them.
    
    
     -chocomog's Seadragon-
    
    25 levels of 1 Rocket Papaya and 2 gold clovers.

    Mangoelephant
    64 levels of 2 Cabadillos and a Dialaurel.
    Final Stats:

    79.125/79.125/74.75/71.125.
    
    Aggressive and Arrogant personalities, if you're careful/lucky. You need to
    get the Mangoelephant to put in the arrogant personalities.

    Be careful you don't put on the scheming personality if you don't want it with
    the bell grapes.
    
    
     -Revised Polter Box-
    
    20 levels of 1 Rocket Papaya and 2 Gold Clovers
    10 levels of Lizard Meat/Rocket Papaya/Gold Clover
    1 level of 1 Cabbadillo and 2 Rocket Papayas
    12 levels of 2 Cabbadillos and 1 Dialaurel
    55 levels of 2 Cabbadillos and 1 Bug Meat
    
    Level 99
        99    99    99    99              DEF: 68.5/86/91/51

                                                (296 effective)
    
    In exchange for a single DEF point, you get far more points in the physical
    defense stats where you really need them.
    
    
     -chocomog's Dainslaif-
    
    25 levels of Rocket Papaya (why does this seem like a standard?)
    1 level Gold Clover/Pine o clock, Rocket Papaya, Heart Mint
    8 levels Rocket Papaya and 2 Heart Mints
    65 levels 2 Cabadillos and a dialaurel
    final stats:

     -Special Thanks-
    
            ANelson gets the biggest nod of all.  He got me started down the path
    to perfecting my Pets and put up with my frequent questions while I was still
    learning the Ways of the Corral.  I consider this entire FAQ to be merely an
    add-on to his currently unsubmitted Pet Guide.  He also co-wrote a really cool
    Artifact Placement Guide, which I highly recommend.
            SeanKelson, MarcusMajarra, and JumiViolet get a big thank you for
    their respective FAQs, which cover other aspects of this amazing game and have
    been extremely helpful to me throughout my LoM play.
            Myst Erik Ery, Miranda B, Kaosu Reido, Summonmaster, User Name Error,
    and dozens of others from the GameFAQs Legend of Mana board.  Many thanks for
    your help, patience, and encouragement.
