Still Missing
-------------
There are the things I am still missing. Otherwise, the FAQ is pretty much
complete.

*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.
*A confirmed list of which Digimon can enter which Cup. I'm mostly just
guessing on it.


 =================
|[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.

1. Dino
2. Fire
3. Version 1
4. Grappling
5. Version 2
6. Animal
7. Thunder
8. Version 3
9. Nature
10. Version 4
11. Humanoid or Wing
12. Cool
13. Version 0
14. Mech
15. Filth

|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.

Penguinmon
----------
Rooster
Restore Floppy
Omnipotent Floppy
Giant Meat
Large Recovery Floppy
Medium MP Floppy


MetalMamemon
------------
Silver Ball
Metal Armor
Chainsaw
Small Spear
Super Recovery Floppy
Ominpotent Floppy
Sirloin


 ==================
|[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.

 --------------- ------------ --------------- -------------- --------------
|   Version 0   |  Version 1 |   Version 2   |  Version 3   |  Version 4   |

 ===================
|[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.
