==============================================================================

      Many would ask, "what's the fastest way to get materials?".  The answer
   is very simple:  bosses.  Whenever a boss is staggered, he will always
   drop an item that belongs to his type, or rarely some Kaching or a unique
   item. First, here is the list of bosses and what kind of material they
   drop, based solely on bosses you can fight outside Paraget/Patagate:

       - Stone/Metal     : Dodonga/Majidongga/Kacchidonga  (dinosaur)
       - Bone            : Mochichichi/Fenicchi (bird)
       - Fang            : Darantula/Centura (spider)
       - Wood            : Dogaeen (golem)
       - Meat            : Manboth/Manboroth (mammoth)
       - Hide            : Goruru (big-bellied demon)
       - Vegetable       : Zaknel/Dokaknel (worm)
       - Liquid          : Ciokinna (crab)
       - Seed            : Shookle (plant)
       - Alloy           : Kanogias (robot/castle/canon)
       - Kaching         : Dettankarmen, Zuttankarmen (dragon)

      In order to maximize staggering, you'll need the Rarepon that
   specializes in Cnc Ratio, which are Menyokkis (Treepons).  The best
   Patapon type to turn into an army of Menyokkis are Yumipons, due to their
   ability to strike thrice, meaning you'll be shooting 18 arrows worth
   205% Cnc Ratio each when at Lv10.  Menyokki Yumipons require Lv2
   materials, which are easy to get.

       - Itete Fangs     : "Lost Sheep at Bryun Snowfield"
                           Preferably when snowing, when the blue pigs
                           are more plentiful.
       - Gashirin Bone   : "Lost Sheep at Bryun Snowfield"
                           Pink birds, who are plentier when it's not
                           snowing.
                         : Mochicichi, if you don't care about his
                             level since he's very weak and is rather
                             very easy to stagger even without Menyokkis.
       - Hard Iron       : Tree minigame
                         : Dodonga, if you don't care about the level.
       - Cherry Tree     : Tree minigame

      It's quite painful early on to farm, but things just get easier.
   Concentrate on getting a single Yumipon to Lv10 Treepon, so you can
   turn your Hero into Lv10 Treepon so you'll have two Lv10 Treepon
   Yumipons, easy.  Once you get a total of three Lv10 Treepon Yumipons
   (including the Hero), you're very fine to start farming from
   Mochichichi and Dodonga.

      So you've got Menyokki Yumipons now, but you're missing something:
   who will pick up the dropped materials?  Kibapons!  Make sure to give
   them anything that boosts their Speed so they can pick up materials
   quicker.

      I didn't recommend fighting bosses for the Fang and Tree since they
   are tedious.  Darantula requires keeping up the Miracle of Rain while 
   Dogaeen has incredible resistance.

      So now you can get a lot of materials, but crap, most of them are
   low level!  What's the trick?

      Whenever you stagger a boss that is frozen, knocked down or sleeping,
   they will always drop a material that is at LEAST Lv3.  This is where
   elemental Rarepons come in, and become more tedious, since certain
   bosses are immune, less resistant or more resistant to a certain thing.
   Not to mention, a boss that is on flame will not drop a rare when
   staggered, so your choice is to either freeze, sleep or knock him down
   before staggering.  Rarepon specialties:

     - Freezing :   Koppen  (+250% Freeze Ratio) (Penguin)
                    Materials:  Lv4/Lv3/Lv3/Lv3
     - Knockback:   Mashu   (+300% Knockback) (Mushroom)
                    Materials: 
     - Sleep    :   Mashu   (+300% Sleep Ratio)
                    Materials:  Lv4/Lv4/Lv3/Lv3

      As you can see, Mashu is more favorable than Koppen.  He will be
   overall a more "universal" elemental Rarepon for farming, and in the
   case where the boss is immune to a certain element, Mashu specializes
   in both Knockback or Sleep so he will never be useless in high-level
   farming.  Turn 3 Yumipons into Lv10 Mashus.  So, for me, this is
   the "universal" setup:

     - Yumipons:  3 Lv10 Moriussoos (Treepons)
                  3 Lv10 Mashuriros (Mushrooms)
     - Kibapons:  3 Lv10 Mashuriros (Mushrooms)
     - Hero    :  Lv10 Moriussoo Yumipon (Tree)
               :  Any Tatepon, for bosses who do not have
                     any attacks that kill Hero throughout
                     the battle.
               :  Mask:  Whichever stat you need to specialize.

     I would recommend equipping default weapons. Equipping weapons that 
   specialize in a certain basic element (Fire/Ice/Lightning) will have
   double damage, which is NOT desirable;  we want to keep the boss
   alive as long as possible to take as much stuff as we can.  However,
   Dream weapons which specialize in Sleep Ratio are safe.


   * ! WARNING ! *
     Once the screen is nearly filled with a lot of dropped items, KILL
   THE BOSS QUICKLY.  It has been confirmed that getting too many items
   in a single fight can cause your PSP to lock up, forcing you to turn
   it off.  You can already notice that you're already pushing the game
   a bit too much when even at around only 30 items, the end mission
   report won't display all your items.  To be on the safe side, just
   make sure your weapon drop icons don't go below the screen.
