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

Version Info:
0.8 - Added a "how you can contribute" section directly below this version 
      info. Updated information on the added benefits of perfect dodge and 
      perfect hit. Revised section on superattacks to account for new info. 
      "Color" data removed from the data section due to conufusion and certain 
      colors being interpreted differently in different lighting. Revised the 
      term "defensive type" to "defensive family", to better differentiate it 
      from "offensive type". Most significantly, data section almost entirely 
      complete, with the exception of a couple of difficult-to-obtain 
      InviZimals.
0.5 - Majority of guide written. Missing: Some unusual values in the Base Stats 
      section, a significant amount of Color and Moveset data in the Data 
      section, statistical data for Moby/Boneshell/Venomweb and 5 of the 
      Elemental Dragons in the Data section. Soon to come: The Battle Formulas 
      section, which will contain some calculations to explain how Damage, 
      weaknesses, and Armor all integrate into your total Life lost.

HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE:
I only have so much time and ability. There are some things I cannot do or know 
because of my situation. Here is what I need (in no particular order):
 1. Growth rates or any stat info on the Dragon's Exceptional Growth stats: Ice 
    and Rock Dragon's Armor, Ocean and Desert Dragon's Stamina Recovery, and 
    Jungle and Fire Dragon's Attack.
 2. Information on the "dizzy yellow stars" status that InviZimals sometimes 
    get when hit by a perfect hit/killer blow.
 3. More data on the offensive typing (e.g. Burn, Slice) of the superattacks.
 4. Superattack and Moveset info on Moby and Boneshell - I am not currently 
    able to get them, so I need your help!
 5. Any battle formulas, such as how damage is calculated, the modifiers for 
    typing (e.g. Slice vs. Ice, Slice vs. Fire), the modifier for parrying, 
    etc. - anything relevant for helping a player understand how to deal the 
    most damage and fight the most effectively.

=====INTRODUCTION===== (Inv01)
Hello everyone. I am DarkestSamus, and this is my second guide. This guide will 
cover InviZimals statistics, battle basics, weaknesses, level-up growth 
patterns, and a comprehensive data list on every InviZimal, including how to 
capture the rarest ones. It is more geared for the player who understands the 
basics of the system and wants to learn more. It will NOT include how to 
successfully capture each storyline InviZimal, nor will it have tactics to use 
versus individual opponents or where to go next in the game - the missions menu 
is adequate for that. The only exception is that I will include a special trick 
on how to catch Tusker or Salma if you can't whistle (see the "FAQ" section at 
the bottom).

=====INVIZIMALS STATS===== (Inv02)
Each InviZimal has five stats:

LIFE: Your total health. When reduced to zero, you lose the set/fight.
STA (Stamina): The energy you draw on to use your attacks, guard, or dodge. 
Each action consumes a certain amount of Stamina.
REC (Stamina Recovery): This affects the rate that you recover Stamina. This 
stat is widely considered more important than a large amount of STA itself, 
since this stat keeps you going in longer battles. Even the InviZimals with the 
lowest REC stats should invest slightly in this, in my opinion.
ATT (Attack): The most important stat of all. No matter how good your Stamina, 
your attacks need to deal actual damage. This number factors into your Damage 
stat, which is listed under "Attacks" in the Catalog.
ARM (Armor): This stat reduces the damage you take from all attacks and 
vectors.

On the second page of the InviZimals stats, you can see their moveset (the page 
the shows the offensive type of each of the InviZimals attacks). The top move 
is their "Strong" attack, which does the highest damage and consumes the most 
Stamina. The left move is their "Fast" attack, which does middling damage and 
consumes medium Stamina. The other two are "Basic" attacks, which deal the 
least damage and take the least Stamina. You'll notice that these moves have 
numbers next to them - that's the amount of Damage the attack will do. These 
Damage numbers go up if you increase the InviZimal's ATT (Attack) stat.

How exactly does ATT (Damage) translate into extra Damage? Through a simple 
formula. A newborn InviZimal with 10 ATT (Attack) has damage values of Strong: 
35, Fast: 25, and Basic: 15. As your Attack does up, these values will be 
multiplied by your Attack/10. For example:

My Tunderwulfe Lv. 12 has 29 Attack. His values are:
Strong: 100
Fast: 71
Basic: 42

Let's figure this out mathematically:
29 Attack / 10 = 2.9
Strong: 35 x 2.9 = 101.5
Fast: 25 x 2.9 = 72.5
Basic: 15 x 2.9 = 43.5

You'll notice that the formula is slightly off, but that is due to rounding. 
For example, Tunderwulfe doesn't quite have "29 Attack", but more like 28.6 - 
the game rounds.

For the remainder of this guide, I will use the terms "Life", "Sta", "Rec", 
"Att", and "Arm" for these stats.

=====INVIZIMALS BATTLE BASICS===== (Inv03)
InviZimals presents its features to you gradually, constantly giving you a new 
feature all the way until you beat the game. I will attempt to cover all of 
those features in the order they appear, although that order may be slightly 
off:

1. Strong, Fast, and Basic attacks. This is covered in the last large paragraph 
of the previous section, "INVIZIMALS STATS".

2. Parrying. By pressing L, your InviZimal throws up a shield that reduces the 
damage it takes. This consumes a set amount of Stamina, plus more Stamina the 
longer you hold it down (or the longer the attack - by holding down the button, 
you commit your InviZimal to continue guarding until the attack animation is 
complete).

2. Offensive types and defensive families. Each attack has an "offensive type" 
linked to it, which you can view on the InviZimal in the catalog. Stingwing, 
for example, has: Strong - Poison, Fast - Slice, Basic - Fire, Sonic. These 
offensive types are correlated with the InviZimal's "defensive family". More is 
explained in the below section, "INVIZIMALS WEAKNESSES".

3. Vectors. Vectors are one-time use special attacks. You have an inventory of 
them, and you can bring them into battle, where you can cycle through them with 
Up and Down on the D-pad and activate them with the R button. As you 
unlock/purchase each vector, you will get a tutorial on how to use it.

4. Sparks. When InviZimals take damage, especially large amounts of it, they 
drop glowing blue orbs called sparks. This is the game's currency, used to 
purchase vectors, and also required for certain story events. By aiming the 
center of the camera at these sparks WITHOUT looking away from the trap, you 
can collect them. Being further away from the trap makes this easier.

5. Perfect dodge. By parrying (L button) at JUST the right moment (right before 
the enemy hits you), you can perform a perfect dodge, where you will take NO 
damage. This consumes less stamina than parrying. Using Perfect Dodge three 
times in a row will activate your superattack. In addition, after a perfect 
dodge, the enemy may enter a "distraction" state (white questions marks 
floating above their head). During this stage, they cannot attack for a set 
period of time - use it to regain stamina if necessary. Note: When your 
opponent performs a perfect dodge, it will say "you missed", but do not be 
confused - it was a dodge on the enemy's part.

6. Perfect hit. When you activate your attack, a green bar will start to fill. 
When it reaches about 5/6 of the way full (as indicated by a white line in the 
inside of the bar), if you hit the same attack button again, you will perform a 
"perfect hit". This deals extra damage, and it reduces the recharge time of 
your attack to nearly nothing (in other words, after performing your attack, 
you will be able to perform another immediately afterwards). Once this feature 
is unlocked, master it - this is critical to slaying your opponent. Also, 
occasionally after landing a perfect hit, your opponent will have a halo of 
yellow stars around their head, as if they were dizzy - I do not know the 
effect of this, however. I believe that it is a VERY brief period in which an 
InviZimal cannot attack, and thus a good opportunity to unleash a VERY quick 
attack before the effect ends. Please e-mail me if you know for certain, 
though! Note: When your opponent performs a perfect hit, it will say "killer 
blow!", but don't, but don't be confused - this is the same thing as your 
perfect hit.

7. Superattack. The superattack is basically a free vector automatically given 
to you when you reach critical life, or after performing three perfect dodges. 
It will appear as a vector that you activate with the R button. As you unlock 
each superattack, you will get a tutorial on how to use it.

=====INVIZIMALS WEAKNESSES===== (Inv04)
Each InviZimal has a "defensivefamily" - Ice, Fire, Jungle, Desert, Water, 
Rock. This determines which attack type they absorb and which attack type they 
are weak to. There are six "offensive types" - Slice, Burn, Bite, Poison, 
Sonic, and Charge. Each element is good against 1 family of InviZimal and bad 
against another. Knowing these matchups is the biggest key to winning! Here is 
the data you need:

ICE is weak to Charge.
ICE absorbs Slice.

FIRE is weak to Slice.
FIRE absorbs Burn.

JUNGLE is weak to Burn.
JUNGLE absorbs Bite.

DESERT is weak to Bite.
DESERT absorbs Poison.

OCEAN is weak to Poison.
OCEAN absorbs Sonic.

ROCK is weak to Sonic.
ROCK absorbs Charge.

You may be able to see that there is a cycle going on here. Although defensive 
families and offensive types don't use the same name, they are still connected 
- for example, Ice is linked with Slice, Fire is linked with Burn, Jungle is 
linked with Bite, etc.

Certain Vectors also have offensive types. Bring these Vectors in against the 
right opponents for an extra boost!

Earthquake - Slice type (use against Fire)
Fire Assault - Burn type (use against Jungle)
Hurricane - Sonic type (use against Rock)
Lightning Strike - Bite type (use against Desert)
Fatal Fireworks - Poison type (use against Ocean)
Meteor Launcher - Charge type (use against Ice)

The "Elemental" vectors, earned by defeating the Shrine leaders (read how to do 
this under ICE DRAGON's description below), also have offensive types.

Ice Elemental - Slice type (use against Fire)
Fire Elemental - Burn type (use against Jungle)
Jungle Elemental - Bite type (use against Desert)
Desert Elemental - Poison type (use against Ocean)
Ocean Elemental - Sonic type (use against Rock)
Rock Elemental - Charge type (use against Ice)

The "Superattacks" also have offensive types, although those are harder to 
properly use because you cannot choose which superattack your InviZimal has. In 
addition, I have noticed some inconsistancies in battle; for example, I 
witnessed Dynamo healing a Rock family InviZimal, suggesting it was Charge 
type. I've also seen Mystical Dance heal a Jungle, which is contrasting to the 
theory that it is a Burn type move. I theorize that the type of the superattack 
depends on who is using it, but I do not know for sure. If you have info on the 
typing of these moves, please e-mail me!

Blinding Flash - Burn type (use against Jungle)
Supercharge - Slice type (use against Fire)
Mystical Dance - Burn type (use against Jungle)
Dynamo - Slice type (use against Fire)

=====INVIZIMALS BASE STATS===== (Inv05)
"Base stats" is a term I use to refer to the stats that InviZimals have at 
level 1. For example, Stingwing has:

Life: 100
Sta: 140
Rec: 5 (6 on a Mutant)
Att: 13
Arm: 3

Knowing these numbers (which are all comprehensively given below, under 
"INVIZIMALS DATA") allows you to plan out your InviZimal as you wish. Every 
InviZimal with the same base stat levels up the same, and you can use these 
charts to figure it out.

For example, let's look at Stingwing. Her base Life is 100. Let's look at this 
chart, under "LIFE", under "BASE 100". We see:

Rank 3: BASE 100 - Rank 4: 140 (+40) - Rank 6: 180 (+40) - Rank 7: 220 (+40) - 
Rank 9: 260 (+40) - Rank 10: 300 (+40)

"Rank" refers to the number of green bars the stat has. Life always starts with 
three bars, for example, so that's why it says "Rank 3" next to "BASE 100". 
Sometimes putting level-ups into a stat causes it to gain TWO green bars (go up 
TWO ranks), like above, you can see that Life goes from Rank 4 to Rank 6 while 
skipping 5 - this means nothing, so don't worry about it. Now we can track how 
much life you would get if you put points into Stingwing's Life stat.

The first level-up you spend would give you +40, as seen in the parentheses. 
That would give you a total Life of 140, and your green bar would advance by 
one to become Rank 4. The next level-up you spend on Life would give you an 
additional +40, giving 180 Life total, and your green bar would expand by two 
to become Rank 6 (again, this is inconsequential, so please don't worry about 
it) and so on and so forth. If you spent the total possible 5 level-ups on 
Life, Stingwing would have 300 Life total.

Every InviZimal with base 100 Life will gain Life using this EXACT SAME 
PATTERN. That is why base stats are useful!

However, keep in mind that base 100 Life is the LOWEST base Life amongst the 
InviZimals. If you see an InviZimal with base 100 Life, you know that it's 
going to grow its Life slowly, and that it will have lower Life compared to 
others no matter how much you invest. For example, an InviZimal with base 140 
Life, like Jetcrab, will gain +56 extra Life per level instead of Stingwing's 
+40, so investing in a Jetcrab's Life will make a much greater difference than 
investing in Stingwing's.

You can cross-reference this section and the "INVIZIMALS DATA" section below in 
order to find out any of the InviZimals' growth rates, so you can plan out your 
levels in advance! Remember, you get to level-up 11 times TOTAL - not 12! So 
you can upgrade your stats a grand total of 11 times.

REGARDING MUTANTS: Mutants are rare alternate-colored InviZimals with a slight 
stat advantage - their base Stamina Recovery (REC) stat is one stage higher 
than their normal form! Continuing the Stingwing example, Stingwing has a base 
5 Rec stat, which is the lowest, meaning she will gain Rec slowly if you choose 
to put your level-ups into it. However, a Mutant Stingwing has a base 6 Rec 
stat, which is an improvement! This is not just a 1-point bonus, because it 
also changes the growth rate in accordance with this chart. Siren, Skysaur and 
Tigershark, the InviZimals with the highest base Rec (9), get bumped up to a 
special base 10 Rec, a growth rate ONLY seen in those three Mutants!

Note - You can get Mutants of EVERY InviZimal EXCEPT FOR:
Elemental Dragons
Nessie
Uberjackal
Skeletail
Flamigerodon
Scissorbeak
Venomweb

Note: The Elemental Dragons have certain exceptional growth rates; for example, 
the Ice Dragon's Arm and the Fire Dragon's Att. These values do not fall on 
these tables, and I do not have growth rates because Dragons cannot be levelled 
and all of my data is gathered empirically. Please feel free to e-mail me any 
information on the Dragons that you may have - please include the Rank (number 
of green bars) as well as the stat value.

=====INVIZIMALS DATA===== (Inv06)
This is a list of all of the relevant data you should need to know about ANY 
given InviZimal. It includes the InviZimals base stats for all 5 of their 
stats, which is useful for using my INVIZIMALS BASE STATS charts listed above. 
Here is an explanation of all of the fields:

Family: Ice, Fire, Jungle, Desert, Ocean, Rock. The InviZimal's defensive 
family.

Pup Moveset: The "moveset" describes the offensive types of moves that each 
InviZimal has. Each InviZimal has a STRONG move (S), which is powerful, 
consumes a lot of stamina, and is slow. They also have one FAST move (F), which 
is slightly less powerful, consumes a medium amount of stamina, and is fast. 
Then they have two BASIC (B) moves, which are low-cost, low-damage. Each of 
these moves has an offensive type: Slice, Burn, Bite, Poison, Sonic, or Charge. 
More details on these types are explained in the INVIZIMALS WEAKNESSES section. 
In addition, different stages of evolution have different offensive types. This 
is the moveset for the "Pup" form of the InviZimal (levels 1-4). When a Pup 
turns into a Colt, the offensive types of their moves may change, so pay 
attention!

Colt Moveset: This is the moveset for the "Colt" form of the InviZimal (levels 
5-8)

Max Moveset: This is the moveset for the "Max" form of the InviZimal (levels 9-
12)

BASE STATS: These are the base stats for the InviZimal - in other words, they 
stats they start with at level 1. This is useful for determining what their 
stats will be like as you level them up. See the INVIZIMALS BASE STATS section 
for details.

METHOD OF ACQUISITION: For non-story InviZimals, like Ice Dragon, Tigershark, 
and Uberjackal, this section will tell you how to get them.

METHOD OF ACQUISITION: Win 12 Ad-Hoc victories. That's "WIN" 12, not play 12. 
You can proceed to win 12 more to get an additional Moby, and so on. It IS 
possible to get a Mutant this way, although it'd take a lot of work or luck.

you'll notice it is a BET duel. Defeat his Tigershark and you'll win it!
Then, go to Mumbai, and challenge Nomad, a new Hunter there. Continue to 
challenge him until he uses a Lv. 1 Mutant Tigershark against you - defeat him 
to claim it.

=====FAQ===== (Inv08)
Q. How do I catch Tusker and Salma? I can't whistle!
A. I had this situation; I couldn't whistle, and I had no friends or family who 
were capable of whistling to the capacity the game required. So I used this:

http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks2/musi
c/piano/flute.htm

Make sure it's on Flute mode. This keyboard is not in-depth, but once you get 
the hang of it, it works. All of the notes used by the game are C1 or higher. 
When it comes time to match Tusker/Salma's song, just hit a key that is CLOSE 
ENOUGH to the note. Make sure you hit they keyboard key right BEFORE the note 
comes up, or else it will register as a fail. Some of Tusker/Salma's notes that 
are REALLY close together can be accomplished just by hitting the same keyboard 
key twice. I can't really give more advice than that - it takes work, but I've 
done it many times (even got my Tusker and Salma mutants using it).

Q. How do I get Moby / Tigershark / Boneshell / Elemental Dragons / Nessie / 
Uberjackal / Skeletail / Flamigerodon / Scissorbeak?
A. Look in the "INVIZIMALS DATA" section under the appropriate InviZimal.

Q. How do I get Venomweb?
A. It is as-of-yet unreleased, although I have reason to believe that it will 
be available soon enough.

Q. How do I get a Mutant?
A. Keep trying to capture the InviZimal! Go to the Catalog, highlight the 
InviZimal you want to try to catch, and then get it to appear. When you get to 
the "InviZimal Detected!" screen and have to start matching up the symbols, 
look at the InviZimal and see if it is a different color! If not, press Start, 
the O to exit, and try again. Note that while Zaphyra and Snapper DO have 
Mutants, they are not of a special color - they just have the extra Rec.

Q. What about Mutant Moby / Tigershark / Boneshell / Elemental Dragons / Nessie 
/ Uberjackal / Skeletail / Flamigerodon / Scissorbeak / Venomweb?
A. Of these, only Moby, Tigershark, and Boneshell actually have Mutants. Moby 
and Boneshell are pure luck - once you meet the requirements to get it, it just 
might be Mutant, and it might not. For Tigershark, follow the instructions in 
the "INVIZIMALS DATA" section to get the Mutant.

Q. What are Mutants good for?
A. Besides looking cool and bragging rights, Mutants have one-stage higher Rec 
than normal InviZimals, giving them an advantage for Stamina Recovery.

Q. How do I get the Elemental vectors, like "Ice Elemental" or "Fire 
Elemental"?
A. Get 1 InviZimal of the appropriate family (Ice, Fire, etc.) to level 9 (or 
win it in a bet). One-form InviZimals, like Uberjackal, do not count. Then, 
you'll unlock a new club - for example, Ice unlocks the Ice Mountains. Defeat 
all of the club members, then the club boss - he will give you 1 copy of the 
vector and open up a Shop where you can buy unlimited copies for 50 Sparks 
each.

Q. How do I show my Roarhide Max to Rolf?
A. Go to Berlin, and you'll notice a special "Fight Rolf" option alongside Club 
Fight, Tournament, and Shop. Use that option.
