    *Bits prizes for a few more Cups. Check the Prizes section to see what I am 
    missing. If you know the info, please contact me.

    |[IN] Introduction|
     =================
    
    Well, here's a FAQ about the Arena in the game Digimon World. I hope this FAQ 
    helps someone out there. 
    
     ======================
    |[AI] Arena Information|
     ======================
    
    The Arena is, well, an Arena obviously. It appears in the bottom screen of File
    City at the bottom right corner. To get the Arena, you have to defeat Greymon
    after talking to Jijimon with a Properity rate of 15. Make sure to have a
    somewhat strong Digimon ready to battle him.
    
    
    Arena Digimon
    -------------
    This is a list of Digimon that contribute to the Arena.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |   Digimon   |Description                                                    |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |   Greymon   |Creates the Arena after talking to Jijimon with a Properity    |
    |             |Rating of 15 and then defeating Greymon. Talk to him to sign up| 
    |             |for tournaments and also cancel them if something arises.      |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |  Penguinmon |Opens a Curling Rink in the left side of the Arena entrance    |
    |             |after beating him at Freezeland. Give him a fish to play       |
    |             |Curling against him.                                           |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |   Gekomon   |Joins the Arena battles after you talk to him at Geko Swamp.   |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |  Megadramon |Beat him at Mt. Infinity and he stands outside the Arena and   |
    |             |brags. Also starts appearing in the Arena battles.             |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | SkullGreymon|Fights in the Arena after defeating him at Gray Lord's Manor.  |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |  Airdramon  |Talk to Jijimon with a Prosperity Rating of 50 and he will     |
    |             |attack you as soon as you leave Jijimon's house. After beating |
    |             |him, he'll be resting up in Jijimon's house. After beating Mt. |
    |             |Infinity, he'll open up a fortune teller section at the bottom |
    |             |right corner of the Arena entrance. His fortunes seem to be    |
    |             |random and don't really do anything.                           |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |MetalGreymon |Beat him at Mt. Infinity and he'll open up a nickname shop that|
    |             |takes up the bottom left of the Arena entrance.                |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |MetalMamemon |Takes over Penguinmon's job after you beat Penguinmon with a   |
    |             |perfect 10 in curling.                                         |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |  Myotismon  |After helping him at Gray Lord's Manor, he begins competing.   |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Techs
    -----
    Your Digimon cannot learn any Techs during any tournament. Don't even bother.
    
    
    Colors
    ------
    When registering for a Cup, the letters that represent the cups will be in 
    either the color White, Yellow, or Red. A White letter means that your Digimon
    can enter it. A Yellow letter means your Digimon can enter it BUT your Tamer
    level will go down. A Red letter means you can't enter the Cup either because
    your Digimon doesn't meet the requirements or it's too early to register.
    
    
    Time
    ----
    To sign up for a Cup, you have to sign up by 10:00 on the day it's going to be
    held. After signing up, you fight in the Arena by entering the Door next to
    Greymon between 10:00 and, I assume, 20:00. Every few hours after 10:00, you 
    will be reminded you're entered in a Cup by the boy you're controlling. At 
    around 21:00 or so, he'll say something like "Oh shoot! I forgot we were 
    entered in a Cup" and then you can't participate in that Cup on that day since 
    you're too late. If a Digimon sleeps past the time you are able to enter the
    Cup, then you must keep it awake for you to participate. Otherwise, you will
    automatically forfeit. Cups usually last around 4 hours, even if you lose at 
    the first battle.
    
    The Time Limit for each battle is 99 seconds.
    
    
    Disqualification
    ----------------
    There are four reasons you will be disqualified from a Cup you sign up for.
    1. You talk to Greymon and withdraw from the Cup.
    2. You miss the deadline, which is around 21:00 the day of the Cup.
    3. Your Digimon digivolves.
    4. Your Digimon dies.
    
    
    Winning
    -------
    There are two ways to win in an Arena battle: Draining the opponent of their HP
    or making the most damage against your opponent. It is preferable to defeat
    your opponent by making them lose all their HP, but if you're trying to 
    preserve your MP or the opponent has too much HP and you don't have a lot of 
    MP, try to cause the most damage. Strategize when to attack and what to attack
    with. I remember one battle with my MegaSeadramon against a Mamemon. I barely,
    and I mean barely defeated him. I caused 5 more damage than he did. That's it.
    A measly little 5 HP made me the winner! Also, if the battle is a draw, where
    you both knock each other out or cause the same amount of damage, you lose.
    
    
    Healing
    -------
    After an Arena battle, your Digimon is healed around 1000 HP/MP or less. That's
    it. And your opponent starts fighting at full health, too. Not very fair, huh?
    That's why before entering the Arena, make sure to heal your Digimon to full
    health, preferably with items like Medium Recovery and Medium MP so you don't
    waste time resting with Centarumon or Punimon.
    
    
    Beetle Cup
    ----------
    The Beetle Cup is held on the 22nd of every year at Beetle Land and only Bug 
    Digimon can enter it. You have to sign up between 00:00 and 10:00 on the 22nd 
    by talking to the Tentomon behind the table. And then to fight in the Beetle 
    Cup, you have to enter the door next to the Tentomon you talked to earlier 
    between 10:00 and, I assume, 20:00. Be warned, though, that the tournament is 
    pretty hard. Even the Rookie Digimon can match an average Champion level. Also, 
    most of the time HerculesKabuterimon WILL be in the tournament and he's got 
    really high stats.
    
    
    Schedule
    --------
    The Arena has a schedule for when Cups are held. It cycles through it twice a 
    year while the 30th day doesn't have any Cups held. The Grade Cups are held 
    everyday in different combinations. Thanks to ZetaJiat's FAQ for this.

    |Curling Prizes|
     --------------
    
    This is a list of Prizes that can be won when playing curling. In order to play
    against MetalMamemon, you must beat Penguinmon with a perfect 10. I'm pretty
    sure the prizes are random.

     ==================
    |[AD] Arena Digimon|
     ==================
    
    This is a list of the Digimon can join the restricted Cups. Note that Baby and
    In-Training Digmon can NOT enter Cups. Also note that other than the Version
    and Beetle Cup lists, I'm guessing on the Digimon that can enter based on the 
    Cup requirements and techniques the Digimon has. The Digimon with (?) next to
    it means I'm not sure if they are able to enter it. The Digimon with no 
    question marks next to it means that I'm fairly sure they are able to enter it,
    either because I have confirmed it myself, or the requirements are so obvious
    that the Digimon is able to participate in it. Please correct me if I am wrong,
    though.
    
    ----------
    Grade Cups
    ----------
    
    All Digimon can enter the Grade Cups, however, entering an Ultimate into a
    Rookie Grade Cup, will most likely make your tamer level decrease one level.
    
    ------------
    Version Cups
    ------------
    
    When the game mentions only certain Version Digimon can enter a Version Cup, it
    refers to the Digimon's Finishing Attack. Here is a list of Digimon you can
    enter in each Version Cup.

    |[AG] Arena Glitches|
     ===================
    
    This is a list of glitches relating to the Arena.
    
    Arena Glitch 1
    --------------
    When you get the Grade Cups Medal, highlight one of the Medals you do not have.
    Now exit to the option screen by pressing Triangle twice. Highlight the Digimon
    option and press X. Now press Triangle and highlight the Player option. Press 
    X, press right twice and press X again to arrive at the Medal screen. Now it
    should give you all the info of the medal you highlighted earlier, except for
    its appearance. When you move around, the info disappears and you have to do it
    again.
    
    
    Arena Glitch 2
    --------------
    When you're gonna enter a tournament, this glitch will happen to you often. I
    shall show it in this ASCII.
    
    | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 |
    | C  | D  | D  | D  | D  |
    | L  | C  | C  | A  | C  |
    | B* | B**| ***| B  |    |
    | A* | S**| ***| F  |    |
    | M* | T**| ***|    |    |
    
    The asteriks denote where the glitch occurs in this example. What this glitch 
    does is show a tournament(s) on the wrong day. When you try to find info on the 
    cup by pressing START or just try entering it, it'll make the buzzer sound. For 
    example, when you try to enter the A tournament on the 12th day or even try to 
    find info on it, the buzzer will sound. Now move over to the S on the 13th day. 
    When you click START, it'll show the info for the A tournament. Move on over to 
    where the *** are on the same row and click START on that to show the info for 
    the S tournament. Now then, I'll try entering the A tournament. I put my cursor 
    over the S because that's where the A Cup info is. I click X and it asks if I 
    want to enter the A tournament so I click OK. The tournament won't take place 
    on the 12th, though. It'll take place on the 13th. You see what's going on 
    here? The game itself is showing the info for Cups on the wrong day. The A and 
    S are supposed to be one column over, same with the M and T and the B and B 
    cups. That's really all this glitch does. It show a tournament date earlier 
    than it actually occurs.
    
    
    Arena Error 1
    -------------
    When you beat all the Type Cups, you receive a medal which states all the Cups
    you beat. It lists down Fire, Grapple, Thunder, Wind, Nature, Cool, Metallic,
    and Filth. The error in this medal is that there is no Wind Cup. The localizers
    may have confused it with the Wing Cup and put it in the Type Medal, instead of
    the Special Medal. This also makes sense because the 7 Type Cups correspond to
    the 7 types of techniques, so an 8th one wouldn't really fit.
    
    
    Arena Error 2
    -------------
    MetalMamemon calls himself MetalGreymon for some reason.
    
    
    Arena Error 3
    -------------
    The names HerculesKabuterimon's and MetalGreymon's Finishing Techniques are
    switched.
