INTRODUCTION
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi everyone! This guide is for those of you who want to raise the most 
powerful level of digimon. The ultimates! It won't be easy raising them 
though. Just follow everything in this guide, and you will be getting 
ultimates right and left! In order to raise ultimate digimon, certain 
conditions must be met exactly. That's why it's so hard to get them. You 
must know how to train it, how to feed it, how to battle it, etc. That's 
what this FAQ will tell you. Whether you want to have a super-strong digimon 
to complete the game with, or want to impress your friends with your digimon 
raising skills, this FAQ has everything you need to become the ultimate 
digimon tamer!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------



-------------------------------------------
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before you begin raising ultimate digimon, there are a few things you need 
to know. First being what an ultimate is. Ultimate level digimon are the 
strongest digimon you can get. However, they're very difficult to raise. In 
order to raise them, you must meet specific conditions exactly. These 
conditions are:

Care Mistakes: Care mistakes are the most important thing when the computer 
decides what digimon you get. They are also the most misunderstood. Care 
mistakes include not feeding your digimon when he's hungry. training him 
when he's tired, letting him poop on the ground, not letting him sleep, and 
battling when he's tired, sick, injured, hungry, or has to poop. The 
computer is very strict when it comes to care mistakes. If you meet a 
digimon's conditions exactly, but don't have the correct number of care 
mistakes, you can forget about getting that digimon. The only exception to 
this is, if the bonus conditions are met. Even then, you probably won't get 
him.

Weight: Weight is the second most important thing to consider about 
digivolution. Every digimon has a weight that you should try to meet if you 
are trying to get that digimon. For example, a Mamemon has a weight of 5g, 
but a Megadramon has a weight of 55g. Even if you don't meet the weight 
there is still a good chance he will become an ultimate. That is, if the 
other stats are met.

Parameters: Raising your digimon's parameters is the hardest part of raising 
an ultimate. They must be met exactly to the digimon's specifications. The 
parameters include hit points, magic points, offense, defense, speed, and 
brains. An Andromon for example, has requires parameters of hit points 2000, 
magic points 4000, offense 200, defense 400, speed 200, and brains 400. If 
these are met he will most likely digivolve. If a digimon reaches it's 
ultimate form, it's parameters will rise dramatically.

Bonus Conditions: These are of little importance to the computer, but do 
matter. Meeting bonus conditions alone will not get you an ultimate. Only if 
you meet them as well as all of the other stats will it matter. The only 
time I suggest trying to get the bonus conditions is if you have already met 
all of the other conditions and are waiting for him to digivolve. Another 
good reason to try to get them is if you can't get the parameters high 
enough in time. Bonus conditions include things like battles 30+, or 
happiness gauge 95%+. If you meet the bonus conditions and all of the other 
stats there is almost a 100% chance that you will get an ultimate.

Tamer Level: Your tamer level is for your character, not your digimon. It is 
relatively important when raising digimon, especially ultimates. It will go 
up after raising several types of digimon, or it goes up every time you 
raise an ultimate. However, it can go down if your digimon dies in battle 
too many times, or if you make too many care mistakes. The higher your tamer 
level is, the better your chances of getting an ultimate are. I don't 
suggest trying to raise ultimates until your tamer level is at least a 1.

----------------------------------
TIPS AND STRATEGIES

--- Don't try to raise ultimates with different stats than the champion 
before them. For example, if a champion has a high defense rating, but 
little speed, then don't try to get an ultimate with a high speed rating.

--- Care mistakes are the most important! The computer will rate you on care 
mistakes above all. When trying to get ultimates, make sure you meet the 
care mistakes perfectly!

---Don't try to raise too many ultimates until you have Kabuterimon and 
Kuwagumon in your gym. The training manual won't hurt either.

--- Digivolution items will get you an ultimate, but a horribly weak one. 
It's life expectancy will stay the same, and it will have low parameters. 
Don't waste your time or money with these.

--- The "bad" digimon (Numemon, Sukamon, Nanimon) will be very difficult to 
turn into ultimates because they're stats don't go up very much when you 
train. It's best to just leave them alone until you're an expert on raising 
digimon.

---Don't try to raise ultimates until your tamer level is at least a 1.  
Champions are all that you need at the beginning of the game anyway.

Vademon

Digivolves From: every champion
Other Requirements: If a champion digimon manages to live for 15 days after 
becoming a champion, there is a chance that he will digivolve into a 
Vademon. So, if you have a 20 year old champion he may digivolve into this 
form. This is extremely difficult to do, and even if you do manage to have a 
digimon that is this old, it will only digivolve about half of the time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
DIGIVOLUTION ITEMS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before you start thinking, "Oh, I'll just use digivolution items to get 
ultimates. It's too hard to raise them anyway." Well, it's even harder to 
find digivolution items. If you use one of these items, sure, you'll get an 
ultimate, but they will be horribly weak. Their stats won't go up any. 
Neither will their life expectancy. But if you still insist on getting 
these, then here they are. At least the ones I have found anyway.

Cyber Parts- This will get you an Andromon. You will get this if you win the 
Metric Cup at the arena.

Red Ruby- This will get you a Phoenixmon. You will get this if you win the 
Version 4 cup at the arena.

Metal Parts, Fatal,Bone, Mega Hand- These will get you a Metal Greymon, a 
Skull Greymon, and a Megadramon- You will get either one of these if you win 
the Grade S cup at the arena.

Metal Armor- This will get you a Metal Mamemon. There is a chance of getting 
this if you beat Metal Mamemon at digimon curling.

Silver Ball- This will get you a Mamemon. There is a chance of getting this 
if you beat Metal Mamemon at digimon curling.

Gold Banana- This will get you an Etemon. You can buy this from Etemon for 
50,000 bits. Probably not worth it.

Choral Charm- This will get you a Mega Seadramon. There is an astronomically 
small chance of fishing this  out of Dragon Eye Lake. We're talking about a 
1 out of 1,000,000 chance here.

Beetle Pearl- This will get you a Hercules Kabuterimon. You will get this if 
you can somehow, by a miracle win the Tournament at Beetle Land. This is 
held on the 22nd of each month. May god have mercy on your soul if you plan 
on competing.

Misty Egg- This will get you a Digitamamon. It is found in the back of 
Whamon's cave after you have beaten it once.

Ray Gun- This will get you a Vademon. You will find it in the first room on 
the right in the Back Dimension.

Monzaemon Costume- This isn't like the others. This one WILL raise your 
stats and life expectancy. To get this all you have to do is bring a Numemon 
to Toy Town and go to the costume house. You can't miss it. I guess it's a 
freebie from the game makers.

SECRETS AND RUMORS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The "secret ultimates": These are Hercules Kabuterimon, Mega Seadramon, and 
Phoenixmon. These digimon ARE IN THE GAME. The reason I put them here is 
because I have no idea how to get them. These digimon you will just try to 
experiment with. They're not super strong or anything. I just don't know how 
to get them. Here's what I did to get a Phoenixmon. First I raised a 
Birdramon. Then it went to sleep and turned into an Airdramon. For this to 
occur, you must have a happiness and discipline meter of 100%, and a 
tiredness of zero. Then I was like, "Cool! An Airdramon!" But before I could 
even move, he immediately digivolved into Phoenixmon. I didn't make many 
care mistakes, and his weight was around 30g. Just try different things. If 
anyone KNOWS FOR SURE how to get these digimon, please e-mail me.

The megas: These truly are rumors. These digimon are Metal Etemon, Saber 
Leomon, and Gigadramon. These are entirely rumored. Although I have heard of 
people getting them with a game shark, and by doing stuff like: Raise an 
Etemon, have him fight 300,000,000,000 battles against ultimates and win 
every single time. You know, stuff that you will never be able to do. I 
seriously doubt these digimon exist.
