2012.07.14 - 1.00 - FAQ Completed and submitted.


========================
  Introduction [xintx]
========================

Hi, everyone!

Wow, it's 2012 and I've decided to write a guide to a game released in 2002!
That's 10 years! Well, even though it's an old game, it IS an underrated pearl
and I still had lots of fun playing it. Seriously, this game is totally worth
buying, even today.

As for me, I only found out about this game a couple of months ago. I thought
I'd probably get tired of playing it after 2 or 3 islands when I watched some
gameplay videos, but I decided to buy it anyway. Since there were 3 people "now
playing" this game at GameFAQs and 7 people with it on their wishlists, I
thought "why not?" and decided to write this FAQ.

So, this guide will help you collect all scrapbook shells. When I was playing,
some shells were really hard to find, so I went looking for a guide. Thing is,
there's absolutely NO info on getting the shells on the internet. Seriously.
You can find a few really old forum threads asking about locations of a
specific shell. Some were answered, some not. While most of them are easy to
find, some where really annoying and I must confess I used the invincibility
cheat to look for them (probably less than 5 of them), then I'd load back my
game (with no cheats) and went straight to where they were.

"And what do I get after I collect the scrapbook shells?" Well, the ONLY thing
you get is scrapbook pages with beautiful images that you view from the main
menu. That's it. Totally not worth the trouble. So why did I do it? I did it
for the completion sake. For the fun of looking for them and seeing those maps
with everything completed. Awesome! When I beat the game, honestly, I tried
viewing the images I worked so hard to collect, but I could only see 30 before
I got bored and I gave up.

So let's get straight to the shell. Oh, wait! Before that, I have two tips I'd
like to say:

TIP #1 - Before landing on an island when visiting a new archipelago, make sure
         you destroy all forts, because there may be treasures chests or shells
         under them. I'm pretty sure about the one in Buccaneer's Haunt, but
         I can't think of any other. Anyway, it'll only do you good to destroy
         them as soon as you can.

TIP #2 - At least 3 shells in this game are MISSABLE! I said "MISSABLE"!!! God,
         I hate missables soooo much. I lost one of those myself. Meh. Well,
         all these three are in boss areas you can't go back to. I'm sure about
         the giant crab and the lava bosses, but maybe this happens with other
         bosses, too. I think those two areas become inaccessible because they
         have respawning items that the player could take advantage of. Next
         time, they could've worked harder on programming instead of just
         locking a door. Hmph!


===================
  Islands [xislx]
===================

The islands are listed in the same sequence you scroll their maps, starting
with Buccaneer Bay.

There will be some times, thought, when you're teleported to another location.
When this happens, you'll face a loading screen. Make sure you check the name
of the new location. Their maps are NOT always right after the map of the stage
from where you teleported to it.


-------------------------
  Buccaneer Bay [xi01x]
-------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 10

Starting Section (2 shells):
01 - In the chest before the gate just before your ship.
02 - Southeast from the pier, up on the hill with the chest on it.

Western Island (2 shells):
03 - In the iron chest where the fort was.
04 - In the buried chest just north from the pier.

Southeastern Shores (3 shells):
05 - Head east right after you disermbark to the end of the shore.
06 - Go right after you go up the steep hill.
07 - In the chest at the end, past the pirates.

Smuggler's Shores (3 shells):
08 - In the buried chest past the crystal chest.
09 - Go up the hill between the smuggler's hut and the pier. It's past the
     chest.
10 - Behind the smuggler's hut.


---------------------------
  Scoundrel's Pit [xi02x]
---------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 3

01 - Circle the island close to the sea counter-clockwise. After you've seen a
     couple of gorillas, you'll see the shell to your left, behind two palm
     trees. It's somewhat not very easy to see.
02 - On the same path, in the chest under the cannon.
03 - Not much further from the last one, in the very obvious chest on your
     path.


----------------------
  Ape Island [xi03x]
----------------------

Scrapbook shells: 5

Mermaid's Island (1 shell):
01 - Behind the mermaid's shell.

Main Island (4 shells):
02 - First, circle the island clockwise. It's well hidden in a bush at the end
     of the path.
03 - In the buried chest roughly north from the first cannon.
04 - Behind the ape idol (yes, up that annoying hill).
05 - At the end of the elevated path with shooters and bombers, past the chest.


------------------------------
  Black Beard's Lair [xi04x]
------------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 1

01 - In the southern chest.


----------------------------
  The Lonely Tombs [xi05x]
----------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 1

01 - In the buried chest to the east.


----------------------------
  Isla de la Garra [xi06x]
----------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 12

01 - Just northwest from the pier, past the crabs and the small pond.
02 - In the buried chest exactly north from the pier.
03 - In the middle of the three tikis at the northernmost point of the island.
04 - At the end of the path after the three tikis.
05 - After the save parrot, on the left side of the path.
06 - In the chest at the southernmost tip of the island.
07 - Go all the way east, then all the way north. It's at the end of the path,
     close to where #04 was, but there's no straight path between them.
08 - Next to a totem, just east of the entrance to the ... well, east of that
     entrance.
09 - In the chest close to the chest with the mask.
10 - After you use the teleport close to the mask, instead of going up for the
     chest, go around through the high path until you get to a small garden.
11 - In a buried chest in the same garden.
12 - After you teleport up, look south to the hill. Instead of going up, turn a
     bit to the right and slide down to a sand platform with a bush on it. If
     you check the map, it's like a small bay of sand on the western part of
     the largest green portion.


-----------------------------
  Buccaneer's Haunt [xi07x]
-----------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 7

Southeastern Island (3 shells):
01 - On the northeastern section of the island, close to the shore, but a bit
     uphill.
02 - To the right, closer to the sea. I guess there was a fort here.
03 - Getting closer to the southeastern tip, it's among some trees on your
     left. Not very well hidden. There may be a bomber nearby.

Northwestern Island (4 shells):
04 - In the northwestern area, past the large cemetery, really close to a
     buried chest.
05 - Past the smuggler, under the cannon.
06 - In the southern part of the cemetery past the cannon.
07 - Past the iron chest with the headhunter's mask, close to the sea.


---------------------------
  Forlorn Straits [xi08x]
---------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 8

Northen Island (1 shell):

Southeastern Island (4 shells):
02 - Close to the mountain to your right, behind some trees, before the first
     enemies.

     right. It's slightly up the mountain.
04 - At the western end of the island, up the hill and past the graves.
05 - At the eastern end of the island.

Southwestern Island (3 shells):
06 - In the northwestern corner of the area east of the save parrot.

     chest.

            The next two shells in the boss area are missable! Like in some
  WARNING!  boss areas. I'm just sure about this and the one on the Isle of
            Living Fire, but maybe this happens with more bosses.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
05 - By the shore on the southern part of where you fight the giant crab.
06 - At the same place as #05, a few steps away from it.

Southeastern Island (2 shells):
07 - In the buried chest in the middle of the island.

Smuggler's Island (1 shell):
01 - On the hill north of the smuggler's hut.

Southern Island (5 shells):
02 - Between the first couple of cannons in the long series of those.
03 - Between some cannons on the same pass, but closer to the end of it.
04 - Under the first cannon after you turn south and go up a small slope.
05 - Under the southwestern cannon in the large area with a long beach.
06 - On the upper area to the west in the graveyard with the crystal heart.

Northwestern Island (2 shells):
07 - At the northwestern tip of the island, past the chest with the new sword.

     have to jump or double-jump to reach it.
09 - On the western side of the island.
10 - On the eastern side of the island.


---------------------
  Dark Isle [xi12x]
---------------------

Scrapbook shells: 5

01 - As soon as you land, make a quick U-turn to the right. It's under the
     cannon tower (destroy it with kegs).

------------------------

Scrapbook shells: 7

Northern Island:
01 - As soon as you disembark, move forward, a bit to the right, and climb on

     either).
02 - Next to the Crystal Heart, to the right.

Southeastern Island (1 shell):
03 - One of the toughest to find in the whole game. It's INSIDE a root of one
     of the trees, between the crystal and the stone chests. You can tilt the
     camera around to make the trees "transparent" and check if the shell is
     inside. It's on the right side of a tree on the right side of your path.

Southwestern Island (4 shells):
04 - On the chest revealed after you destroy the cannon in the circle area
     around Witch Doctor's mountain.

     down, look back.

     on it).

10 - In the iron chest with the headhunter mask.

     ship). It's behind a palm tree on your left (if you just slid down).
07 - Beyond the teleporter past the gate, at the edge of the cliff.
08 - When you teleport to the western section of the island, slide down to the

05 - CAUTION!!! THIS SHELL IS MISSABLE!!! I missed it myself and never did
     manage to get 200 shells. Bummer. Well, after you beat the boss, a
     teleporter will activate in the lower level (not the one that takes one
     level up). Very close to this teleporter is the shell--the one I hate the
     most in this game. Once you use this teleporter, you can't return to the
     boss area. God, I HATE missables... Please, tell me if you know of a way
     of getting this shell after you left the area.

Shores With The Save Parrot (3 shells):
06 - In the middle of the path, between some trees.
07 - A few steps past the first chest, to the left.
08 - Very close to the first teleporter.

Q01: Why didn't you / can you make a similar guide for the chests?

A01: No, sorry. There's no point, since you can you use the cheat to see their
     locations.


                         -------------------------


Q02: I can't find the chest you mentioned! Help!

A02: Save your game, use the cheat to find the chests, locate it and then load,
     if you don't want your game to have the cheat activated. If you already
     opened the chest, I'm sorry, but it will be harder for you. At least you
     can have a slight idea of where to look.
