You're able to dive with him after saving Oc‚ane from the Tiger Shark in the Deep Hole. Title: Righteous Paladin. [1.2]Spectacled Porpoise - The Dolphin from the Antarctic. He will join you when you're with Hayako diving at the Lower Ice Cave 3 and he is in the Hall of Radiance. Cure him with your pulsar and you're done. Hayako said that she will call him Marshmallow. Title: Splendid Cleric. ---------------- Dolphin Shows ---------------- You're able to give Dolphin Shows! Finally! Anyway, to give Dolphin Shows, you need at least one dolphin with Free Training. Here's the short answer: Try to get at least 2m jumps and 4sec timed tricks. After that, Hayako got a request for you. You can get the Level Certificate for that dolphin! After the Exam, you can finally give dolphin shows.. To do one, talk to Hayako and select one. Now we can start the quest: 'Be the best trainer!' Here's the long(er) answer: 1 you need to train a dolphin. 2 after many many tricks, Hayako has got a request for you. 3 When you're done with her request, you get more Dolphin Show requests, and one guy named Finley turns up. 4 Finley will say what you need to do, first you need to have 3 shows completed, after that he will give you some information about a dolphin. 5 Go to the dolphin (First time: Bottlenose Dolphin, second time: Narwal...) and do something with it.. (For one dolphin, you need to calm a shark, one other likes to sing..) 6 After a few, Finley won't tell you his Secret, untill you completed 20 dolphin shows... 7 After the shows, he will give you more information. 8 Get that dolphin and Finley asks you to get 11 partners, just like a legendairy trainer. 9 There are more requests for more dolphins. Good luck :D ---------------- Be the best trainer! ---------------- [3.1] 1. The name is... Notebook: ''Hayako has been contacted by someone who heard that you'd befriended wild dolphins. Talk to her for more details.'' Looks like Hayako got news. Lets talk to her. After the cutscene, you find out that the World's Best Dolphin Trainer, Finley, has arrived! He challenges you to put on three dolphin shows. Lets do it! Notebook: ''Self-styled World's Best Dolphin Trainer, Finley, has arrived! He challenges you to put on three dolphin shows. Once you have done that he will visit you again.'' [3.2] 2. Finley Returns After the three dolphin shows, the quest updates.. Notebook: ''Finley called again after hearing good reviews of the dolphin shows. Talk to Hayako for more details.'' Finley returns for more action. This time, you have to do one dolphin show.. Entertain him.. Notebook: ''Finley's new challenge is to entertain him! Show him what you and your dolphins can do!'' After the dolphin show, Finley has got some news. According to him, a rare white dolphin has been sighted in Ciceros Strait and said that he will get him. Océane got pissed and she said that you will get him first.. Oh boy.. Let's go to Ciceros.. Notebook: ''Finley told you about a white dolphin sighted in Ciceros Strait. Can you find him before he does?'' For more information about the Dolphin Mission, search for [4.1] [3.3] 3. Thus spoke Finley Notebook: ''Finley is going to visit R&R again after hearing that you befriended the white dolphin. Talk to Hayako for more details.'' Our third partner!

Gossip Finley Notebook: Finley called again after hearing good reviews of the dolphin shows. Talk to Hayako for more details.'' Finley looks to trust us a bit more.. Finley trusts us enough to let us hear his secret. There is a Narwhal living in the Arctic Ocean.. Like we didn't know.. Notebook: ''It seems Finley is finally impressed! He's interested in a narwhal living in the Artic Ocean. If you have the chance, try to find it.'' All right! Lets go to the Arctic and find one! For more information about the Dolphin Mission, search for [4.2] [3.5] 5. Finley's Secret Notebook: ''Finley is going to visit R&R again after hearing that you befriended the narwhal. Talk to Hayako for more details.'' Finley is showing up again. He has a secret and won't let it go.. Another challenge.. He challenges us to.. Or train at least 100 times, or perform at least 20 shows.. Yay for instant titles! Now, lets do it! ((Note: choose what you prefer. I won't say what you need to do, only that I chose for the 20 dolphin shows because of the money.) Notebook: ''If you train at least 100 times or perform at least 20 shows, Finley promises to tell you a secret...'' Okay, after that, lets talk to Hayako once again and Finley shows up. The secret is that there are Beluga's in the Arctic. I didn't know that already! But here it is a special Beluga; it has got a flower pattern. Anyway, lets check it out. Notebook: ''There may be a be a beluga with a flower pattern in the south-west Arctic Ocean. Try to find it!'' For more information about the Dolphin Mission, search for [4.3] [3.6] 6.

Finley's Past Notebook: ''Finley is going to visit R&R again after hearing that you befriended the false killer whale. Talk to Hayako for more details.'' Finley is here once again. This is one of the last times you see him, so be nice to him. He tells you that he has a dream and he's not going to fulfil it. Now, he wants us to do it. Yay. Anyway, he wants us to befriend all of the dolphins all over the world, eleven in total, we just got 6. Why eleven? Because a legendary dolphin trainer has also got eleven animal partners. Let's do this! Notebook: ''Finley wants you to fulfil his dream of befriending all the dolphins in the world. He's heard that someone has befriended 11 dolphins and small whale. Make Finley's wish come true! Befriend all 11 species!'' For more information about the rest of the Dolphin Missions, search for [4.5] and further.

Anyway, Finley is happy. You've fulfilled his dream. He gives you two presents, the Shark Costume and Converter Lung, and he's off. Finally. You won't hear ever from him again. Well, maybe..

Title: Mystical Warrior [4.2] Narwhal at the North Pole Notebook: ''According to Finley, there are narwhals in the north-east Arctic Ocean.'' Dolphin: Narwhal with a red-tusk Mission: Dive at the right time..! Place: Breathing Hole with the Narwhal's, Arctic Ocean. Notes: Urgh.. This is a pretty annoying mission.. Here it goes: - First, go to the breathing hole. Do this WITH Océane. - Second, watch the cutscene. Go ashore and follow the steps. - Third, this is where it gets annoying, dive when there is a RED tusk out of the water. Only than it will happen.. - Last, watch the cutscene and you've got a new dolphin partner! Yay! Notebook: ''You found some narwhals around the breathing hole in the north-east.

Anyway, here is how you have to do this.. Hiding place 1: The Spiral Tower. I actually missed this one the first time I got in. Pretty dumb, because when you swim up, you can see him. He's at the top of the Spiral Tower. Oh no! He is spooked and swims away! Now the hide-and-seek really starts! Hiding place 2: The Collapsed Gallery. This isn't too hard, just follow the path to the end and you will see him. Hiding place 3: The Armoury. This one's annoying the first time. Just go right before the room with the Lion Fish and you're all right. Hiding place 4: I think he was in the Underwater Gallery.. Just follow the path. Hiding Place 5: In the secret room where Océane had to sneak in. To open it, just go to the room and talk to Océane. Hiding Place 6: Mermaids Ballroom. This is the last hiding place! Finally!

Legend says that it transforms into a young boy and lures young women in the river. The narwal we've got is said to be a women.. Why not swim with her?

When you're there, you hear a weird voice and it says that you have to offer two protection items to the lady.

With most of the partners, there is something weird about it. Example: False Killer Whale: X-marks. Bottlenose dolphin: Albino. Look for anything that isn't normal! 3. Another place? Some of the dolphins aren't where they're supposed to be. Commerson's dolphin is in the treasure room, for an example. 4. Yay for Lv. 3 exams! Because you can do combo's now, use two moves instead of one. Why? Because if you fail both times, only one turn is gone! 5. The third move.. Some people have got problems with the special trick.
