    1~. Introduction
    
    After some uninteresting conversions of the series by Bandai, their new
    company finally manages to do a better game. Fair enough, it isn't perfect
    and doesn't really feel like the old games, but at least it is slightly
    better than their previous games. This one also has its flaws, but it is a
    start and (hopefully) in the future they will make some better games based
    in this very same series.
    This guide will try to cover every single aspect of the game, alongside
    with some general tips for each match, events for the matches in the story
    mode and everything you may want to know about the game.
    Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I liked to write it!
    
    
    
    2~. Controls
    
    As many other games, this one features a slightly different control scheme
    inside and outside of the matches.
    Outside of the matches or, even better, in the menus, your controls are:
    
    Directional Keys - move up, right, down or left in the options
    
    START - used only to enter the main menu
    
    SELECT - not used
    
    TRIANGLE - not used
    
    SQUARE - confirms an option
    
    CIRCLE - confirms an option
    
    X - goes back, after making any kind of selection
    
    L1 - not used
    
    L2 - not used
    
    L3 (left analog stick) - move up, right, down or left in the options
    
    R1 - not used
    
    R2 - not used
    
    R3 (right analog stick) - not used
    
    
    However, when in the middle of the matches, the controls turn out being
    slightly different:
    
    Directional Keys - moves your captain up, right, down or left
    
    START - pauses the match, but can't be used in the middle of cutscenes
    
    SELECT - not used
    
    TRIANGLE - if another player from your team currently has the ball, this
               key requests them to pass it to your captain. If you hold it
               while the opponent has the ball, your captain will move in
               their direction
    
    SQUARE - if you don't have the ball, makes your captain perform a tackle
    
    CIRCLE - opens up a menu (if your captain or another player of your team
             has the ball) and confirms options in there
    
    X - used to run faster, either if you have the ball or not
    
    L1 - uses a small jump to the left
    
    L2 - not used
    
    L3 (left analog stick) - moves your current captain up, right, down or
                             left
    
    R1 - uses a small jump to the right
    
    R2 - not used
    
    R3 (right analog stick) - moves your entire team (minus the captain and
                              the goalkeeper) up, right, down or left . You
                              will see a small icon on top of the player's
                              heads when doing so.
    
    
    Besides these controls, there are also some other things that you may need
    to have in mind when controlling your character, most specifically during
    the matches.
    
    Looking at the upper corners of the screen, you will not only see some
    small icons in there but also two bars. The icons show what kind of
    actions a certain player can perform at each given time, and if you want
    to perform them, just enter the menu (see the controls stated above) and
    do it.
    As for the bars, they flash when totally filled and you can obviously see
    that each of them can be split up into 3 different sections. Depending in
    the current status of those bars, the shots that your characters can use
    will be different, for example, you need all 3 levels (and all the bars)
    to be filled in order to use Tsubasa and Hyuga's Twin Shot, but
    significantely less to use Hyuga's Tiger Shot, or Tsubasa's Drive Shot.
    Now, you may be wondering what to do in order to fill such bar; it is
    easy, you just need to confront players (keep on reading and you'll
    understand it), defend shots or perform tackles, and eventually you will
    see your bar filling up.
    
    Besides, there's the detail of "confronting players". Sort of like what
    happened in the (awful, I gotta say) "Captain Tsubasa J" for the older
    Super Famicom console, several events occur during the matches, when
    players (even if they are important ones or not, but you can change this
    kind of thing in the in-game options available from the main menu) face
    each other. In such cases, each player will be able to press 3 different
    keys, which you should try press in the exact moment where the circle,
    seen in the lower part of the screen, becomes yellow. If done at the
    correct moment, your category will be better (be aware that you may have
    "Critical", "Smash", "Good" and "Bad", here stated in decreasing order)
    and your opponent's bar will become shorter (or even shatter, granting you
    a quick win). At the end, if your bar is longer than your opponent's, you
    win the duel. In case they are the same, the ball will just be thrown away
    for a while.
    
    Shooting the ball (or defending from a shoot) is done in the exact same
    way, with simply requiring you to follow some schemes.
    
    In case you're defending with your goalkeeper, try to follow the very same
    keys that your opponent pressed, which will cause a small cutscene and
    improve his overall abilities. For example, in the case of the amazing
    Wakabayashi, he will show his "S.G.G.K." skills and become even stronger.
    By following such sequences you will lower the power of the opponent's
    shots, with "0000" (or, merely, 0) being required to fully capture a ball
    and lower values (i.e. the ones where the numbers turn red) making it
    possible to punch the ball away.
    
    However, if you are shooting at your opponent's goals, there are some
    sequences that you may follow, which depend on whatever shot you were
    using (all posibilities will be shown in the "Special Moves" section of
    this very same guide). By doing so, you will turn that very same move into
    an Hyper Shot, a special ability that slightly increases the move's power
    and which, eventually, turns out being very important later in the game.
    
    Finally, there's the point of the categories of your moves. Depending on
    how good you follow each task, many things may happen, but the most
    important one appears with the shots: if you score more than one "Bad",
    the ball will either hit the post of just plain leave the field, which
    isn't very good, as you may suppose.
    
    That's all for this section, I guess...
    
    
    
    3~. Main Menu
    
    In the main menu, you will find the following options:
    
    ^
    Story Mode
    Custom Story Mode
    1P Versus CPU Mode
    1P Versus 2P Mode
    CPU versus CPU Mode
    All Star Edit
    My Captain
    Options
    v
    
    As you may see, this layout is really easy to understand. However, since
    only 3 of the options are usually seen in the screen and by pressing up
    (or down) all the time you'll see the options all over again, it turns out
    being slightly harder for non-japanese readers to understand. So, in case
    you're having troubles with it, enter an option, see which one that is
    (come on, it isn't that hard, is it?) and then compare it to the listing
    shown above.
    More on each mode can be read in the next sections of this guide.
    
    
    
    3.1~. Story Mode
    
    As usual, this turns out being the game's main mode. After entering it,
    you will gain access to a list of matches that you can currently face, and
    in order to unlock the next one (if any) you need to beat your last
    available one. Between matches, you get to see the storyline taken from
    the actual anime series, depicted using the game's graphics and in high
    quality. The middle of the matches also feature some interesting events,
    usually the very same ones that you could see in the series. Most of the
    times you can't choose your team (or the people in there) and your players
    will depend only in the actual storyline.
    As you may suppose, this will be the mode covered in the "Walkthrough",
    alongside with the one seen in the next point of the guide.
    
    
    
    3.2~. Custom Story Mode
    
    This is a mode not initially available, and in order to gain access to
    this option you will need to complete the "Story Mode" and then create
    your very same captain in the "My Captain" Mode.
    Here, you will face only the same teams that you previously saw in the
    "Story Mode", but this time you won't see any new cutscenes or events
    during the matches. Instead, the captain of your team will be the guy you
    created, and he will learn the main moves of the teams you defeated.
    I strongly advise you to edit your team before starting each match, since
    the people who created the game just plain exchanged your newly-created
    captain with Tsubasa. So, you should just put someone (come on, your
    team has a bunch of worthless characters!) out and then put Tsubasa in, as
    he generally is a very good help. Besides this small tip, other small
    mentions about this mode will be given in each level of the walkthrough.
    
    
    
    3.3~. 1P Versus CPU Mode
    
    This mode enables you to pick a team, one for your opponent and simply
    play against each other.
    As soon as you enter the mode, you will see some options in the left side
    of the screen, they are:
    
    Team
    Substitution
    Captain
    Formation
    Complete
    
    "Team", when selected and you press LEFT or RIGHT, allows you to change
    your selection to a different team. From the first position and continuing
    to the right side, the available teams are are Nankatsu, Ohtomo,
    Azumaichi, Nishikigaoka, Hanawa, Hirado, Furano, Toho, Japan Jr., Italy
    Jr., Argentina Jr., France Jr., Germany Jr., All Star and, finally,
    Nankatsu SC.
    
    "Substitution" allows you to switch the players currently in your team.
    
    "Captain" can be used to change the current captain of your team.
    
    "Formation" allows you to change the current scheme for your team.
    
    "Complete" advances to the next screen.
    
    Then, your opponent (which you select later) has to face the very same
    options. Next, you reach a screen, where the captains of the two teams are
    seen, and you are given these options:
    
    Play Time
    Extra Time?
    PK?
    Balance
    Complete
    
    "Play Time" is the option which allows you to set how much time you wanna
    play in each part of the match, you can pick 15, 30 or even 35 minutes.
    
    "Extra Time?" and "PK?" let you choose if you want your match to feature
    any of those two conditions, if the possibility arises (for example, if
    the teams are tied at the end of the match).
    
    "Balance" sort of gives you the option to select the difference of levels
    between the two teams, with their sum always needing to be 10. However,
    you can select combinations such as "lv. 9 - lv. 1" or "lv. 5 - lv. 5",
    apart from some others.
    
    "Complete", well, allows you to continue.
    
    Finally, you get to pick one of the three stadiums available in the game,
    the one where you will face your opponent.
    
    In case you're wondering, no, this mode does not allow you to play with
    your entire team, and you can only play with your captain, as usual.
    
    
    
    3.4~. 1P Versus 2P Mode
    
    This mode enables you to pick two team, requires two controllers, and
    allows you and a friend to play against each other.
    As soon as you enter the mode, you will see some options in the left and
    right sides of the screen, they are:
    
    Team
    Substitution
    Captain
    Formation
    Complete
    
    "Team", when selected and you press LEFT or RIGHT, allows you to change
    your selection to a different team. From the first position and continuing
    to the right side, the available teams are are Nankatsu, Ohtomo,
    Azumaichi, Nishikigaoka, Hanawa, Hirado, Furano, Toho, Japan Jr., Italy
    Jr., Argentina Jr., France Jr., Germany Jr., All Star and, finally,
    Nankatsu SC.
    
    "Substitution" allows you to switch the players currently in your team.
    
    "Captain" can be used to change the current captain of your team.
    
    "Formation" allows you to change the current scheme for your team.
    
    "Complete" advances to the next screen.
    
    Then, after both players press "Complete", you will advance to the next
    screen, where the captains of the two teams are seen, and you are given
    these options:
    
    Play Time
    Extra Time?
    PK?
    Balance
    Complete
    
    "Play Time" is the option which allows you to set how much time you wanna
    play in each part of the match, you can pick 15, 30 or even 35 minutes.
    
    "Extra Time?" and "PK?" let you choose if you want your match to feature
    any of those two conditions, if the possibility arises (for example, if
    the teams are tied at the end of the match).
    
    "Balance" sort of gives you the option to select the difference of levels
    between the two teams, with their sum always needing to be 10. However,
    you can select combinations such as "lv. 9 - lv. 1" or "lv. 5 - lv. 5",
    apart from some others.
    
    "Complete", well, allows you to continue.
    
    Finally, you get to pick one of the three stadiums available in the game,
    the one where you will face your opponent.
    
    Here, you can play with the entire team. However, it is a pity that this
    turns out being the only mode where you can do it.
    
    
    
    
    3.5~. CPU versus CPU Mode
    
    This mode simply allows you to pick two team and see them facing each
    other in a match. As soon as you enter the mode, you will see some
    options in the left side of the screen, they are:
    
    Team
    Substitution
    Captain
    Formation
    Complete
    
    "Team", when selected and you press LEFT or RIGHT, allows you to change
    your selection to a different team. From the first position and continuing
    to the right side, the available teams are are Nankatsu, Ohtomo,
    Azumaichi, Nishikigaoka, Hanawa, Hirado, Furano, Toho, Japan Jr., Italy
    Jr., Argentina Jr., France Jr., Germany Jr., All Star and, finally,
    Nankatsu SC.
    
    "Substitution" allows you to switch the players currently in your team.
    
    "Captain" can be used to change the current captain of your team.
    
    "Formation" allows you to change the current scheme for your team.
    
    "Complete" advances to the next screen.
    
    Then, after selecting "Complete", select the second team and all its
    options. Next, you reach a screen, where the captains of the two teams are
    seen, and you are given these options:
    
    Play Time
    Extra Time?
    PK?
    Balance
    Complete
    
    "Play Time" is the option which allows you to set how much time you wanna
    play in each part of the match, you can pick 15, 30 or even 35 minutes.
    
    "Extra Time?" and "PK?" let you choose if you want your match to feature
    any of those two conditions, if the possibility arises (for example, if
    the teams are tied at the end of the match).
    
    "Balance" sort of gives you the option to select the difference of levels
    between the two teams, with their sum always needing to be 10. However,
    you can select combinations such as "lv. 9 - lv. 1" or "lv. 5 - lv. 5",
    apart from some others.
    
    "Complete" allows you to continue.
    
    Finally, you get to pick one of the three stadiums available in the game,
    the one where you will face your opponent.
    
    Unfortunately, not even this mode allows you to see the game from the
    perspective of an outside viewer, making it all really boring.
    
    
    
    3.6~. All Star Edit
    
    Unlocked only after you first completed the "Story Mode", this mode
    enables you to create one (and only one!) All Star team, using any kind of
    players from the teams that you may have previously unlocked. Then, you
    can use this team to play in the something-versus-something modes and
    nothing else. It is a pity that the didn't allowed players to share their
    teams with another players, either by loading teams from the memory card
    or using some sort of password mode, but there's nothing we can do about
    it. >_< Anyway, the options seen in the menu are:
    
    Team
    Remove
    Substitution
    Captain
    Formation
    Shirt
    Complete
    
    "Team", this time, opens up a menu in the right side, where you can see
    several teams and players. Select one of them with the usual key (CIRCLE,
    in case you can't remember it) and they will be added to main team of
    yours. As before, the available teams (starting from the first position
    and continuing to the right side) are Nankatsu, Ohtomo, Azumaichi,
    Nishikigaoka, Hanawa, Hirado, Furano, Toho, Japan Jr., Italy Jr.,
    Argentina Jr., France Jr., Germany Jr., All Star and also Nankatsu SC.
     
    
    "Remove" allows you to remove a player from your current team, but will
    only work if you currently have more players than required.
    
    "Substitution" can be used to switch the position of two selectable
    players in your team.
    
    "Captain" is, once more, used to change the current captain of the team,
    and only player that you can control.
    
    "Formation" is used to change the scheme used by your team.
    
    "Shirt" allows you to choose the current clothing that your team will be
    wearing in their matches, and you can select one out of 8 different ones.
    
    "Complete" just ends this process and returns you to the main menu, but
    be awara that your team isn't magically saved. Instead, you must go to any
    of the places where your game is saved and do it.
    
    
    
    3.7~. My Captain
    
    After first entering it, you will create your very same character, in a
    way that many other sports games allow you to. In the first screen, you
    will see the following stats:
    
    Height         (120~200 cm)
    Body Type      (2 different types)
    Hair           (39 different ones)
    Face           (10 different ones)
    Eyes           (28 different ones)
    Eyebrows       (25 different ones)
    Hair Colour    (16 different ones)
    Skin Colour    (8 different ones)
    Eye Colour     (16 different ones)
    Voice          (5 different ones)
    Complete
    
    None of these characteristics seem to heavily change the gameplay, but we
    can't say the same about the next set:
    
    Power          (0~150)
    Speed          (0~150)
    Technique      (0~150)
    Shooting       (0~150)
    Keep           (0~150)
    Energy         (0~150)
    Complete
    
    You have up to 450 points to allocate in the different stats. Their
    selection is up to you entirely, since it depends on your skills and the
    way you play the game. Anyway, finally you will reach a final screen,
    where you can pick up the name of your character and confirm it with the
    button in the lower left side of the screen.
    
    Then, if you use this mode later on, you'll be confronted with 5 different
    choices:
    
    Change Body
    Change Stats
    Change Name
    Undo
    Complete
    
    The first three options simply allow you change the previously set
    options, the ones stated above. However, that's exactly where "Undo" is
    more useful, since it allows you to erase changes that you may have done
    BUT only the ones from your current visit to this mode.
    Easy, hum?
    
    
    
    3.8~. Options
    
    Well, the kind of things that you can usually find in each game. These are
    the options available in this one:
    
    Sound
    BGM volume
    Sound volume
    Voice volume

    "Sound" appears to be the usual way to change the sound output method, but
    I'm afraid I could have mistranslated it.
    
    "BGM volume", "Sound volume" and "Voice volume" simply allow you to adjust
    the specific volume of each of those 3 parameters.
    
    "Rumble" lets you set if you want your controller to shake or not.
    
    "Battle Condition" (and yes, I know this is a mistranslation) allows you
    to set how many times the "battles" occur, i.e. the confrontations between
    two in-field opponents. You can either pick "everyone" (which is the
    default condition) or only "captain", which makes only the battles against
    your captain occur.
    
    "Save" and "Load" are obvious, they simply allow you to save or load your
    game (provided you have a memory card) at any given point in time.
    
    
    
    4~. Walkthrough
    
    In the following sections of this guide, you will be able to read several
    information about the many teams that you may fight during both the story
    modes available in the game.
    It will mostly contain information on the important members of each team,
    their special moves, what events you can get during each match and,
    finally, general strategies to beat those very same matches. In case you
    find something not stated in here, feel free to mail me about it.
    
    
    
    4.1~. Ohtomo
    
    -------> Important players
    
    3. Nishio
    4. Nakayama
    9. Nitta
    10. Urabe
    11. Kishida
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- Advance Tsubasa in the field, and eventually you will see a
       confrontation between him and the '4 of Ohtomo'.
    
    2- If Nitta has the ball, have Tsubasa confront him and an event will
       happen.
    
    3- Tsubasa's Volley Shot will be used if he is passed the ball, from
       behind, when he is in the middle of the field.
    
    4- After 3 (I mean, the event below) occurs, if Nitta receives the ball
       in the same conditions as Tsubasa, a new event will be seen.
    
    5- After 4 occurs, if Nitta receives (again) the ball in the same
       conditions as Tsubasa.
    
    6- After 5 occurs, Nitta receives (yet again) the ball in the same
       conditions as Tsubasa, and he will finally perform his Hayabusha Volley
       Shot.
    
    7- Randomly during the match, people may show up and scream "Tsubasa". I
       recall Sanae and Katagiri, but maybe they are more.
    
    
    The match is not very hard, but you may be put into trouble if you are
    just getting started to this game. Apart from their appearance in event
    number 1, the '4 of Ohtomo' are not even very good, and Tsubasa (and the
    rest of the team) can surpass them. Try shooting with Tsubasa and Kisugi,
    taking the ball from Nitta as soon as possible (he is the strongest
    striker here, for obvious reasons) and you will probably do just fine.
    
    In case you are wondering on tips on how to easily achieve event number 3,
    I think I can give you a small tip: when Morisaki catches the ball, move
    Tsubasa to the center of field and then ask for Morisaki to throw you the
    ball, which will (if done correctly) start the stated event.
    
    In case you beat this team in "Custom Story Mode", the player you created
    in "My Captain" Mode will acquire a useful Hayabusha Shot.
    
    
    
    4.2~. Azumaichi
    
    -------> Important players
    
    7. Souda
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If Tsubasa has the ball (outside of the penalty area) and Souda
       confronts him, an event with Kamisori Tackle will happen.
    
    2- If the opponent's TP (you know, the silly bar seen in the upper right
       corner of the screen!) is above 2 and Souda has the ball in your half
       of the field, he may use Kamisori Shot.
    
    3- After 2 occurs and Souda has the ball in your side of the field, he may
       use a Reverse Kamisori Shot.
    
    4- After 3 occurs, use Tsubasa's Overhead Shoot inside the goal area and
       Souda may interfere, which will cause a new event.
    
    
    Their goalkeeper is slightly stronger than the one of your previous
    opponent but, with some effort, you can overcome it. You just need to be
    careful with Souda and his strong Kamisori moves (either the tackle or the
    shots), strike with Tsubasa, Kisugi and Izawa and eventually you will beat
    the team.
    
    Events 1 and 4 are easy to spot, but the other two are mostly random.
    Therefore, you may have to try the match several times before you can spot
    them.
    
    By beating this team in "Custom Story Mode", your created player will
    acquire Kamisori Shot.
    
    
    
    4.3~. Nishikigaoka
    
    -------> Important players
    
    ?. ?????????
    ?. ?????????
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If a certain player confronts Tsubasa when he has the ball, this event
       will occur.
    
    2- If Tsubasa confronts a certain player when the opponent has the ball,
       this event will occur.
    
    3- If a certain character has the ball and the opponent's TP is more than
       2, Dragon Shot may be used.
    
    4- If a certain character has the ball and the opponent's TP is more than
       2, a different Dragon Shot may be used.
    
    
    I don't know much about this team (or, most specifically, their players)
    since this team is hardly unknown in the manga, and Nankatsu even beats
    them by 6-0. Strangely, in this game they turn out being quite poweful,
    with their Dragon Shot having nothing to envy to the amazing Fire Shot,
    seen much later in the game. Try to strike as much as possible and score
    mostly with Tsubasa and Kisugi, but be aware that you may need to repeat
    this match a few times before you can finally win it.
    
    Once more, some events here revolve around luck, most specifically 3 and
    4. So, you may have trouble getting them.
    
    By beating this team in "Custom Story Mode", your created player seems not
    to learn any kind of new Shots. What? You wanted a way too overpowered
    Dragon Shot? >_>
    
    
    
    4.4~. Hanawa
    
    -------> Important players
    
    9. Tachibana
    10. Tachibana
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If both Masao and Kazuo are near your goals, they may use Triangle
       Shot.
    
    2- After 1 occurs, if one of the Tachibana twins is inside the penalty
       area and they receive a pass, they may use Skylab Hurricane.
    
    3- After 2, if they use Skylab Hurricane, Tsubasa is nearby and more than
       20 minutes of the first half passed by, a new event may occur.
    
    4- Near the end of the match (maybe last 15 minutes?), if Tsubasa gets
       the ball in the middle of your opponent's field, he may use (and fail
       :P) a Drive Shot.
    
    5- If the Tachibana are near each other in your field, they may use their
       very own Twin Shot.
    
    
    Weak team, provided you can keep them away from your goal area. Then,
    strike as much as possible and, even if you are scored with the powerful
    Skylab Hurricane, you won't have to fear your opponent.
    
    Some events here are hard to spot, but you may come here later if you want
    to see them, since keeping Tsubasa near the goals just for getting event
    number 3 is sort of not worth it.
    
    As you may suppose, by beating this team in "Custom Story Mode" you won't
    get any special shots. The only one that you could possibly learn here was
    Skylab Hurricane, and since there's no way that your player can use it
    alone, such hypothesis is just ridiculous.
    
    
    
    4.5~. Hirado
    
    -------> Important players
    
    5. Jitou
    16. Sano
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If you use Drive Shot (yes, Tsubasa can finally use it!), a small event
       will happen.
    
    2- After 1 occurs, using Drive Shot will lead to another event.
    
    3- After 2 occurs, using Drive Shot (yet again!) will lead to a bigger
       event, which this time needs your full interaction.
    
    
    Considering that you only have half the time, in this match, to make up
    from a 3-0 score, your main problem is probably TIME. Strike with the
    entire team, being specially careful with Jitou (his Power Defense is
    currently too powerful) and unleashing each Drive Shot as quickly as you
    can.
    
    All the events in here are almost set, if you want to win the match. Just
    use the 3 Drive Shots and then try really hard to score a forth goal, even
    if it means to go on extra time.
    
    By beating this team in "Custom Story Mode", you don't seem to unlock
    anything at all.
    
    
    
    4.6~. Furano
    
    -------> Important players
    
    10. Matsuyama
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If Tsubasa has the ball and he confronts Matsuyama, this event will
       occur.
    
    2- If the opponent's TP is more than 2, Matsuyama may use his Eagle Shot.
    
    3- After 2 occurs, if Matsuyama is nearby and you use a Drive Shot, a new
       event will happen.
    
    4- After 3 occurs, when there is less than 20 minutes for the game to end,
       use Phoenix Drive Shot and a new event may happen, but only in certain
       conditions (yes, I have yet to figure those out >_< ).
    
    
    Your main problem here is that Matsuyama has a strong tackle, and since he
    will be marking Tsubasa, you may have trouble in following your usual
    attack scheme. So, be careful with this detail, try passing the ball to
    the other elements of your team as soon as possible and score with any of
    them. Tsubasa may also be used as a backup to strike but only inside their
    goal area, which usually prevents them from blocking your shot.
    
    Most events in here are hard to spot, and mostly require a lot of luck
    from you. You may need several times before being able to see them all.
    
    By beating the match in "Custom Story Mode", your character will learn the
    powerful Eagle Shot.
    
    
    
    4.7~. Toho
    
    -------> Important players
    
    GK. Wakashimazu
    9. Sorimachi
    10. Hyuga
    11. Sawada
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- As soon as the match starts, you will see an event where Hyuga uses his
       Tiger Shot.
    
    2- After Tsubasa first uses his Drive Shot, you will see an event.
    
    3- Hyuga strikes his Tiger Shot (may occur randomly), another event
       happens.
    
    4- Tsubasa uses a second Drive Shot, new event happens.
    
    5- After events 3 and 4 occur, pass the ball from Izawa to Tsubasa inside
       the goal area and this event will happen.
    
    6- When Toho is winning by more than 2 goals, this may happen, an event
       with Hyuga's "V for Victory" (this time, with a different ending :P).
    
    7- After 3 and 4 occur, pass the ball to Kisugi from Tsubasa, inside the
       goal area, in order for Wakashimazu to use Shutou Defense.
    
    8- After the end of the first half, if Tsubasa uses his Overhead Shot an
       event may happen.
    
    9- In the second half, if Tsubasa and Hyuga are in front of each other in
       the middle of the field and he uses Tiger Shot, Tsubasa may counter it.
    
    10- After 9 occurs, if Tsubasa is inside the opponent's side of the field
        and strikes Drive Shot with Hyuga nearby, the event with Tsubasa and
        Hyuga countering each other will happen.
    
    11- After 10 occurs and there are only 15 minutes to play in the second
        half, if Tsubasa receives the ball in the middle of the field, he may
        use Miracle Drive Shot.
    
    12- After 10 occurs and there are only 15 minutes to play in the second
        half (or if you are in extra time), Hyuga may use his Tiger Overhead
        Shot.
    
    
    Strangely, beating this team is not even very hard; your main problem may
    be the one of scoring goals to Wakashimazu, since he is the strongest
    goalkeeper you've faced this far. Strike only with Tsubasa, use the events
    to your own advantage and be aware of Hyuga's powerful Tiger Overhead
    Shot, since it may put you into trouble. However, if you try to keep the
    ball away from Hyuga as much as possible, you'll avoid all trouble.
    
    While it is hard to spot all the events in a single match, that's indeed
    possible.
    
    By beating this team in "Custom Story Mode", your created player will
    acquire the amazing Tiger Shot.
    
    
    
    4.8~. Italy Jr.
    
    -------> Important players
    
    GK. Hernandez
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- Simply shoot the ball to the opponent's goals (using other than
       Tsubasa's Drive Shot), an event will happen.
    
    2- After 1 occurs and you've shot more than 3 times, a new event with
       Roberto will happen.
    
    3- If 1 occurs and you've shot more than 5 times without scoring, a new
       event happens.
    
    4- After 3 occurs and there's some sort of stop in the game (for example,
       due to an offside, a corner, a goal or even a goal kick), Misaki will
       join your team.
    
    5- After 3 and 4 occurs and Tsubasa or Misaki receive the ball near the
       center of the field, they may use their Golden Combination.
    
    6- When the game is in the second half and the ball is punched away by the
       opponent goalkeeper, if Hyuga is near the goal area he may use his Neo
       Tiger Shot.
    
    
    This is a really easy match. Your biggest problem will probably be the one
    of scoring to one of the best goalkeepers in the game, but keep on trying
    with Tsubasa, Hyuga and Misaki's strongest attacks and eventually you will
    manage to do it.
    
    Your only problem here is probably spotting event number 6, since it
    requires a lot of luck.
    
    As you may suppose, beating this team in "Custom Story Mode" does not
    unlock any kind of special moves for your character, since there isn't
    even anyone in the opponent team that has them.
    
    
    
    4.9~. Argentina Jr.
    
    -------> Important players
    
    10. Diaz
    12. Pascual
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If Diaz receives the ball when in the japanese part of the field, he
       may use an Overhead Shot.
    
    2- If Diaz is passed the ball inside the japanese goal area, he may use
       Zenten Shot.
    
    3- In the first half, Diaz may randomly use Drive shot.
    
    4- If Tsubasa has the ball and he confronts Diaz, an event will happen.
    
    5- In the second half or later, if Tsubasa is in the argentinian field,
       Hyuga is in front of him and Tsubasa receives the ball, an event with
       Drive pass to Tiger Shot will happen.
    
    6- After 5 occurs, if the Tachibana Twins are near the opponent's goal
       area and Tsubasa receives a pass, they may perform Skylab Twin Shot,
       but they'll have to leave the field after it.
    
    7- If Tsubasa and Hyuga are near each other and Hyuga receives the ball,
       an event may happen.
    
    8- If Tsubasa and Hyuga are near the opponent's area, Matsuyama is behind
       them and he receives the ball, an event will happen.
    
    9- If the ball leaves the field near the end of the second half, Misugi
       will be put into play.
    
    10- If Misugi is in the field, Tsubasa and Diaz are nearby and Tsubasa
        receives the ball, an event will occur.
    
    
    Unlike what happened in the series, this match in the game here is quite
    easy, if you try to take the ball away from Diaz as soon as possible. The
    other players (and even Pascual!) don't pose you much of a trouble, so
    you can simply ignore them and have Wakashimazu easily defend their shots.
    
    Most events here are easy to spot, I doubt you'll have any problems with
    them.
    
    After beating this match in "Custom Story Mode", your character will
    finally learn the Drive Shot.
    
    
    
    4.10~. France Jr.
    
    -------> Important players
    
    10. Pierre
    20. Napoleon
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If Tsubasa receives the ball near the center of the field, an event
       will happen.
    
    2- After 1 occurs, if Hyuga is behind Tsubasa and he receives the ball,
       an even with Tiger Pass to Drive Shot will happen.
    
    3- In the first half, if Napoleon has the ball and he is near the penalty
       area, Souda will eventually receive a yellow card.
    
    4- After 3 occurs, if Napoleon has the ball and he is near the penalty
       area, Souda will receive a red card.
    
    5- When Pierre shoots, he may sometimes use his Slider Shot.
    
    6- After 1 occurs, Tsubasa confronting Pierre while having the ball makes
       a new event appear.
    
    7- After 1 occurs and Hyuga is just behind Tsubasa, if your captain
       receives the ball, an event may happen.
    
    8- If Tsubasa confronts Pierre (yes, again!), an event will occur.
    
    9- If the ball leaves the field in the second half, Misugi may join your
       current team.
    
    10- In the second half, if either Pierre or Napoleon are in your side of
        the field and one of them receives the ball, they may perform their
        Eiffel Tower combination.
    
    11- In the second half, if Misaki receives the ball in the opponent's
        field, there will be a new event.
    
    12- After 11 occurs, if Tsubasa and Misaki are near each other in the
        opponent's field and one of them receives the ball, they may perform
        their Twin Shot.
    
    13- In the second half, if Napoleon has the ball and Hyuga is near, while
        both of them are in Japan's field, an event will happen.
    
    
    Here, you can usually use the events to score some easy goals to the
    opponent team, and I strongly advise you to try getting the event where
    Misugi joins the field, since he is a powerful ally. As for striking, you
    can mostly go for Tsubasa and Hyuga and their strongest shots, since they
    are the best you have by now.
    
    Events 3, 4, 5 and 13 are slightly hard to spot, and since there's no
    special technique to do it, your best bet is... mere luck. You may be
    required to try it several times, but there's not much I can advise you
    about it.
    
    After beating this match in "Custom Story Mode", your character will be
    able to perform both the Cannon Shot and the Slider Shot, which is always
    nice, I guess!
    
    
    
    4.11~. Germany Jr.
    
    -------> Important players
    
    GK. Muller
    11. Schneider
    
    
    -------> Events
    
    1- If Tsubasa performs a shot, an event will occur.
    
    2- If Schneider shots, you will see an event with Wakabayashi.
    
    3- After 1 occurs, if Hyuga performs a shot, another event will occur.
    
    4- After 3 occurs, if Tsubasa shoots, another event will occur.
    
    5- After 4 occurs and the ball is shot by either Tsubasa or Hyuga, there
       will be yet another event.
    
    6- After 5 occurs, if Hyuga shoots a new event will occur, which
       eventually leads to a goal and grants you the ability to try scoring
       goals to Muller.
    
    7- After 6 occurs and you are in the second half of the game, if Misaki
       and Tsubasa are near each other and Misaki receives the ball, this
       event will happen.
    
    When you actually know what to do around here, your match turns out being
    quite easy; your main problem will probably be the one of scoring a goal
    to Muller, since he won't even display his defensive points. So, you can
    either score a goal by dribbling him (which is REALLY hard) or spot events
    1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the above list. By doing so, you will not only score
    your first goal, but also enable you from scoring many others.
    Apart from that, just try to defend with your entire team and be specially
    careful with the Germany Kaiser, Karl Heinz Schneider, since his special
    shots (specifically, his Fire Shot and Non Fire) are too strong.
    
    Here, events 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are easy to spot, or else you would be
    serious trouble. While event 2 depends only on your luck, the 7th one is
    slightly harder to get, and you may have to try it some times.
    
    After beating this match in "Custom Story Mode", your character will
    finally be able to use the Fire Shot, one of the most powerful ones
    available in the game.
    
    
    And that's all for the story modes in this game. Way too short, I guess...
    
    
    
    5~. Special Moves
    
    Here, I'll list the combinations of 3 keys that you need to press in order
    to increase the power of each shot. This listing starts by stating the
    ones that require a single character, then the ones that require more than
    one character (such as the Twin Shot) and, finally, the ones that your
    created character, made up in the "My Captain" Mode, can learn.

    FAQ~. Frequently Asked Questions
    
    Here, you will be able to read the answer to some important questions that
    people may have about the game.
    
    Q: What's the music heard before starting the game?
    
    A: That's "Moete Hero", the opening song heard in the japanese version of
       the first Captain Tsubasa anime.
    
    
    Q: Can my created captain's team play against one created by a friend of
       mine?
    
    A: No, unfortunately you can't do that kind of thing in this game.
    
    
    Q: Is there any in-game way to figure out the motions needed for the Hyper
       Shots?
    
    A: As far as I've noticed, no. A rumor claims that you'd get them by
       completing all the events available in each match, but when trying to
       confirm it, it just seemed to be a false statement.
    
    
    Q: So, where did you get those motions?
    
    A: They were all, alongside with the storyline events, translated from
       this game's oficial website, as stated in the credits.
    
    
    Q: Why didn't you translated the storyline?
    
    A: Well, mostly because it is just like the anime. However, I may consider
       doing it, in the future.
    
    
    Q: How can I use the special passes/dribbles/combinations, outside of the
       story mode?
    
    A: You just can't. Most of them are story events and nothing else, and so,
       they aren't even usable.
    
    
    Q: Will you ever translate ALL the players included in the game?
    
    A: I doubt it, unless A LOT of people wanted it. Most players are slightly
       unimportant and nobody actually cares about them. As for the most
       important ones, their shirt number is stated next to their proper team,
       when talking about it in the "Walkthrough" section of this guide.
    
    
    Q: How can a player have infinite TP?
    
    A: Apparently, this is a very common question for this particular game.
       However, the only have to have infinite TP is by using patch codes. I
       did not try this myself, but according to a player named "Wally", if
       you have a Swap Magic system, you can achieve this feature by using the
       Master Code "F0100208 0011C28B", and then you can input the code for
       this particular feature, which is the following:
       202E77C0 00000003
       202E77C4 00000064
       More information about this can be see in the user's original video,
       over at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q43Hn6a96Mo .
       
    
    More to come, eventually.
