0) Introduction
---------------
Hey you, yes you, the reader.  This is my first FAQ.  It seems a 
lot of people make their first FAQ for Budokai...  Anyway, I've 
decided to make this Popo FAQ so that people who have some 
problems with getting skills can find some answers here, and to 
tell you a few things I've found out about the shop.  Hope it 
helps you out.

You can always mail me for further questions or comments, but 
don't you dare be rude or demand that I reply asap!  I'm only 
human, and I have tons of other things to do in my life.  I will 
try to reply as fast as I can, or when I feel like it.  Just be 
patient, and formulate your questions clearly!  (This can be done
in English, Dutch or French)


------------------
1) Version History
------------------

Version 1.0 - This is the first version of the FAQ, started 
	      the 4th of January 2003.

Version 1.1 - Added another hint of getting easy money
              Added a "to do" list at the bottom

Version 1.2 - Added a FAQ part.
	      Put an extra part under the list on how to get
              Breakthrough Capsules and Dragon Balls.
  	      Set how much place a capsule takes in the tray.

Version 1.3 - Added a Hint.
	      Made a list for each character.
	      Worked a little on the layout.

Version 1.4 - Final Revision
	      Added a few capsules I missed
              Finished all lists

2) Capsule Table
----------------
I won't tell you what a capsule does, because there are a lot of 
FAQS which already do that.  I'll just make you a table with the 
prices and the rarety of the capsules.  You should know that 
there are 4 types of rarety: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super Rare 
(yeah, I know, I've chosen the same classes used in Magic the 
Gathering, hehe).

As a rule, the rarer a capsule, the more expensive it gets, 
costing a maximum of 12,000 Zennies (Frieza's Space ship).

The # column shows how much place a capsule takes in the tray.

d) Gamble and Recommended Capsules:
-----------------------------------
These are all the above capsules.  You can also get Dragon Balls
in these two categories.  I usually only buy the capsules which 
are recommended, though.

e) Dragon Balls and Breakthrough Capsules:
------------------------------------------
There are two types of capsules which aren't in the list:  
Dragon Balls and Breakthrough.  You can't have get Breakthrough 
Capsules without getting Dragon Balls.  These Dragon Balls are 
random caps which sometimes appear in Mr. Popo's recommended 
slot, and cost 8000 Z each (and they are Super-Rare caps).  Once 
you have all 7 dragon balls, you'll be able to summon Shenron.  
Enter your capsule list, and press X once you're on the screen 
showing the Dragon Balls.  You'll be asked if you wish to make 
Shenron Appear.

Choose Yes, and a cool cinematic will show Shenron being 
summoned.  He'll grant you one breakthrough capsule out of 
three.  These three are chosen randomly by the A.I.  If the 
capsule for your favorite character doesn't appear, you can 
reset your game, and re-summon Shenron.  Your character's 
capsule might appear in the list.  To get all Breakthrough 
capsules, you'll need to summon Shenron 23 times and thus 
you have to collect all 7 Dragon Balls 23 times.  

Happy Hunting ^_^

Breakthrough capsules are a type of Support Capsules, and are 
always the last on a character's list.  It's a special type of 
support, because it has the same effect as equiping ALL Special 
and Physical caps a character has, plus the effects are maxed 
out, just like when you equip 2 of the same type (e.g. 2 Kameha
-mehas for max effect).  The only downside is that you won't be 
able to equip any other capsules, since it takes up all place in 
your tray.

4) Acquiring Money Easily:
--------------------------
Keep in mind that this is a very cheap way of winning 
tournaments, so don't complain if you think it's lame.

Customize either Krillin or Kid Gohan.  Give them the Vaccine + 
Viral Heart Disease Combo.  Your opponent will lose his health 
without being hit.  Put the Round Time on 30 seconds, and enter 
the Advanced Tournament.  Since Gohan and Krillin are both so 
small, bigger characters, like Recoome, just kick right over 
them!  Now, all you have to do is Guard all the time, and you'll 
win in 95% of the cases.

Presto! EZ 50000 zennies!

Here's an additional way to get easy cash, submitted by Michael 
Hahn:

"Just as an additional way to make your way of making money even 
easier, add the highest guard power up item the character has. 
With this, unless they get a ring out, it will be virtually 
impossible for them to do enough damage to win."

So, either equip Bulma Armour, Evil Tribe Mystery Uniform, High 
Tech Vest, Improved Nanomachine, Mysterious Vest or Mystery 
Fiber Jacket, depending on your character.



--------------------
5) Buying Strategies
--------------------
There are two ways of buying capsules:
	a) nine-capsule method
	b) leave-and-enter-again method

First I'll explain the Nine-Capsule Method.
	There is a set maximum number of copies you can have of 
	one type of capsule. Once you have nine copies of a 
	certain capsule (I'll take Senzu Bean as example), Popo 
	won't sell it anymore, and so you'll have better chances 
	of getting rarer capsules.  (So, once you have 9 Senzu 
	Beans, you won't be able to buy more). Although this 
	method costs a lot of cash (6013000 Zennies to get it 
	all), it is worth it in the end.  After a while, you'll 
	be able to get rare capsules faster, especially those 
	hard to get Dragon Balls.  You'll also spend more time 
	fighting than trying to buy capsules, and since Dragon 
	Ball Z Budokai is a fighting game I strongly advice you 
	to use this method.

	Alternatively, you can just buy those capsules which are 
	worth 1000 or 2000 Z when recommended, and once you have 
	every type of capsule 9 times, you can buy the rare and 
	more expensive capsules in their respective categories.  
	This saves even more time and money.

Now, the Leave-and-enter-again method.
	Popo's recommended capsule is always random, and as such 
	it changes every time you enter the shop.  This is a 
	relatively easy and cheap way of getting rare capsules, 
	although it takes a LOT of time to get those really rare 
	capsules and dragon balls.  If the recommended capsule 
	isn't one you want to have, just leave the shop and 
	enter again.  With a bit of luck, you'll get the one 
	you want. This method is cheaper (it costs 1813000 
	zennies to get one copy of every capsule, including all 
	Breakthroughs), but it's a hell of a lot more boring in 
	my opinion.

Now that you know the two methods, you can choose which method 
you'd like to use, depending on your style.

6) Hints:
---------

- NEVER buy "physical" caps, because no blue cap is worth 2000 Z.  
  They all cost 1000 Z if they're recommended! Just be patient, 
  and they'll all show up eventually in the "recommended" slot.

- I personnally always buy all skills using those presented in 
  the recommended slot, even if they aren't always as cheap (e.g. 
  Frieza's Space Ship: 12000 Z) until I have most common and 
  uncommon capsules, then I use the other categories, except 
  gamble. However, some like using Gamble to get the Dragon balls 
  cheaper.  It's up to you which way you want it :-p

- If you're bored from the world match, you can just go to story 
  mode to chill out, and you'll still get caps after every battle 
  (thx to llamaman 58, who reminded me of this!)




------------------------------
7) Frequently asked questions:
------------------------------

a) Q: Are there any cheats to get capsules?
   A: None that I know of, sorry.  Patience is a virtue!

b) Q: There is one capsule I never have for each character, which is it?  
   It's at the end of the character's list.
   A: That's a breakthrough capsule.  Check above to know how to get 
   them.

c) Q: How do I power up?
   A: Hold X to guard and press backwards twice, and keep holding 
   backwards, so you keep powering up.

d) Q: Can I get Super Saiyan 3 or 4 for Gokuh, or Buu, or even Fusion?
   A: Nope, not in Budokai, anyone who says they have it, is lying.

e) Q: How do I unlock Advanced and Adept tournament modes?
   A: Once you beat Novice mode, Popo will present Adept in his 
   recommended slot. Beat Adept Mode and you'll be able to buy Advance 
   in the same way.

f) Q: When I go to Edit Skills-Change Caps I customize my character,but 
   the skills I put in the Capsule frame don't work in Duel, Practice,
   etc. 
   A: Choose Custom once you've chosen your character, and make sure 
   you've saved your customization on your memory card.

g) Q: Do you have any Gameshark codes for this game?
   A: Nope, and I never will, because I refuse to use that machine.
   If you really want them, chacke www.gameshark.com or something
   like that.
