Welcome to my first Pro Evolution Soccer 4 FAQ, for PS2 and Xbox! It's not a 
huge project, but I want to contribute to the Pro Evolution Soccer scene at
GameFAQs - so this goes out to the guys on the message board where I am a bit
of a lurker. Anyway, this FAQ is for the "Challenge Training" mode found in 
the "Training" section from the main menu. There isn't an awful lot to do, but
it's fun and you DO learn something from it.

Pro Evolution Soccer seems basic on the outside, but as you delve deeper 
you'll find out about Strategies, formations and the depth of the transfer
system. Yes, all of these seem quite simple - but they are actually quite 
clever. Say, on FIFA - as long as you put enough points in for the player 
they'll automatically come, no matter what. On this they have a "Star System"
that comes into play. So if the player is marked as three stars it'll be
quite hard to 'tice him away from his current club.

Anyway, this ain't the place to chat, let's go onto the Challenge Training 
Info!

(iii) Challenge Training Info                                             ~CTI
=========================------------------------=============================

Challenge training is based upon a simple concept - to teach you how to play
Pro Evolution Soccer without the bread and water feeling. It'll tell you how
to play with Spaghetti Bolognaise and Sunday Roast and Wine...>_>

There are seven areas for you to train up initially. Most of the parts of the
seven areas (there are five points to an area) require 1000 points to pass,
which is quite easy, actually. The seven areas are:-

- Dribbling
- Short Pass
- Manual Pass
- Free Kick - Long Pass
- Free Kick - Shoot
- Ball Possession
- Attack
- Defence

It follows an octagon shape to show you how well you are doing in each area.
I can't draw the diagram, it's a little too hard :\ Anyway, it points out
in another octagon (eventually) when you're done.

There are five levels to each area, and each get gradually harder, with the
last couple being REALLY hard. On some, you'll think the last is pretty
much impossible, but it isn't, so keep at it. I'll also recommend the
player/s I used to complete that particular training and my score. Aim to
beat it ;)

The end to another section - read on to get the recognition you deserve among
other Pro Evolution fans!

OK, we've entered the meat and bones of the document. This section will 
recommend how you do every single training episode (in Challenge Training 
only). It'll not tell you how many steps to take or anything (>_>) but it'll
get you through it. Got my cousin through ^_^

Anyway, here we go.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dribbling - 1 Star                                                           *
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Michael Owen
Gold    : 00"11"00
My Time : 00"10"78
G Points: 1403
M Points: 1455

It's pretty much just a straight run with one SLIGHT turn and an arrow will
tell you just about half way through. Don't worry, it's really easy!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dribbling - 2 Star                                                          **
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Michael Owen
Gold    : 00"18"00
My Time : 00"18"82
G Points: 1607
M Points: 1490

MUCH harder, but still not too difficult. Only tried this once, didn't go for
gold though. Should be doable, I made a mistake with this one and still got
second. There are a few hard turns, but just slow down to make them doable. 
The slight bends are for speed so watch the radar to make this with ease.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dribbling - 3 Star                                                         ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Michael Owen
Gold    : 00"17"00 - impossible, IMO
My Time : 00"18"02 - >:(
G Points: 1641
M Points: 1487

Easy to get through, HARD to get gold. Couldn't be arsed when I came two 
seconds off silver, so...at the start it's pretty much 180 turns, then you can
put a little bit of pace on if you want - I sometimes do, depending on my
confidence in my control stick. The last two straights (in a sort of diagonal
shape) are where you really wanna pull on R-trigger. Just go, go, go!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dribbling - 4 Star                                                        ****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Ronaldo (Brazil + Real Madrid)
Gold    : 00"22"50 
My Time : 00"25"70 - >_> 
G Points: 1442
M Points: 1113

Yes, I suck at this one. There are many confusing points, like the third set of
cones - I bet you're like "wtf!?" huh? Run slightly in between them then 
quickly 180 and it'll pass as a pass...another one will come shortly, then 
there's nowt you haven't done before until the defender shows up. Quickly turn
south JUST as you get to him to evade him and go through the last few cones to
finish it!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dribbling - 5 Star                                                       *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Ronaldo (Brazil + Real Madrid)
Gold    : 00"15"50 
My Time : 00"16"88 
G Points: 1959
M Points: 1897

Again, if I tried again, I would get gold, but meh. Anyway, there are a few
tight cones to get through this time, but it's pretty much a straight run with
a couple of easy curves. Again, another defender to beat but Ronaldo has the 
skill to get past him by using the right stick "Zidane turn" skill. Peasy.

We've done dribbling! Yay!!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Now, onto Short Pass!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Pass - 1 Star                                                          *
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Players : Henry, Reyes, Pires
Gold    : 1500
My Time : 1869 
G Points: 1500
M Points: 1869

So, so, SO easy. Just pass the ball between the three players. Ever played one
touch before? Yeah? Do that. If you haven't, the aim of the game is to pass the
ball to each other only touching the ball once, until somebody passes it back 
to you. Do that. OK?
                            
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Pass - 2 Star                                                         **
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Henry, Reyes, Pires, Edu
Gold    : 1500
My Time : 1470
G Points: 1500
M Points: 1470

This time you have four players and one defender. Play with 2 or 3 at a time
until the defenders comes to them, then swap to a different 2 or 3 including
the excluded one last time. Or just completely mess with the defender and
go pass crazy - bit more difficult, but more rewarding in knowing you can do
it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Pass - 3 Star                                                        ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Henry, Reyes, Pires
Gold    : 1900
My Time : 1869
G Points: 1900
M Points: 1869

Same as before just with three players though. Do the occasional one-two to
mix things up just to keep the defender guessing. Easy enough.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Pass - 4 Star                                                       ****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Henry, Reyes, Pires, Edu
Gold    : 1500
My Time : 1282
G Points: 1500
M Points: 1282

Back to four players but this time with two defenders. Try to draw a defender 
out a bit then pass back to the other three guys - this'll net you some time
to get a lot of passes - only do this if you need to get a higher score 
though. I will also accept alternate strategies for this one, peeps.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Pass - 5 Star                                                      *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Henry, Pires, Edu
Gold    :
My Time :
G Points:
M Points:

Oh my god! Hardness on a new level! You have THREE this time and they have TWO
eek. I can only offer this advice - leave it late to pass and pass to the 
player who is not marked, rinse and repeat. No high score, but should get it
done.

HAH! I've just played a great strategy that'll net you 1600+ points. Not enough
for bronze, silver or gold...but it's fool proof. Play with the two players 
that are in these positions:-

      -->@                                -====================-
                                                  LEGEND       
                D                            @ - needed player 
                     O                       D - defender      
             D                               O - spare player  
                                                              
      -->@                                -====================-


The defender closest to the "O" will never stop marking him - and if he does,
just pass it to the "O" and then pass it back to one of them two and start over
again! The other defender will stay to the right of the ball making it easy, 
and just never stop passing, not for a second. Sorted.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Now onto Manual Pass...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Manual Pass - All Star                                                   *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This, to be honest, is pretty much just the same all the way through, but with
more points needed and the cones in awkward fashing. What you need to do to do
a manual pass is (>_> <_< ^_^;;) push the right stick in the direction you 
wanna kick the ball and then push the right stick in to get power, release to
kick. 

You need to hit the blue ones to get the most points and the orange ones close
to the blue cone will net you a few points too. Kicking from further away will
also get you more points, so try that. Try and line up with the blue cone
vertically for an easier shot.

Very easy when you get the hang of it, to be honest.

When the defender comes, don't panic, losing the ball doesn't make you fail,
just go and get the ball again and try.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Now onto Free Kick - Long Pass

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Free Kick - Long Pass - All Star                                         *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is easy to pass, quite difficulto to get gold on. I use Beckham - awesome
freekick taker, obviously. Anyway, the first couple of rounds are basically
tiny chip forwards and they're probably the hardest to hit the red marks on.
There are a couple of varieties - hitting targets in mid air, which is probably
to easiest, short distanced, small targets, long-distanced big targets or 
medium targets.

Anyway, the aim is to hit the target, which has three rings. Blue ring gives 
you anywhere from 200-300 points. Yellow nets around 300-400 points, while red
nets 400+.

Those figures are for the later stages. The early easy stages, a red could net
you 900+ plus, a yellow 500+ and a blue 300+. Nice of Konami, eh?

Getting it REALLY close to the target, you could end up with anything from 0 to
300. It isn't too hard, espescially if you've actually played a Pro Evo before.
Remember control the pitch of the kick with up and down and curl with left or
right. Don't hold completely down when trying to lower your kick though! It'll
go flat and pass as a fail. Good luck, peeps.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Now onto Free Kick - Shoot

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Free Kick - Shoot - All Star                                             *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a bit harder, as you only have a semi-circle to aim at - the bottom or
on the cross-bar. Shockingly, hitting the cross-bar nets you ZERO points, even
if the damn target is just under the cross-bar! WTF!? Anyway, the ones towards
the top of the goals ain't too hard, the ones on the bottom are though, unless
you know when to press the down button. Press it QUICKLY just after you release
the X button to shoot.

The blue ring nets you: - points while the yellow nets you -  points. The red
is EXTREMELY small on this one, only very skilled players can hit it. Luckily,
I am one >_>. Use the up button to put height on.

Remember, getting close to the target earns you points, but even less on this
situation. The same controls apply apart from the shoot button (X), which is
not the cross button this time.

On the first stage, getting a red nails you about 1400+. I'll have to check
what the rest give you. Gimme time! I do not have PES4 in my home at the 
moment. It's at my grans.

Defenders come in later stages, so watch out for their walls!

Good luck.

!!!ATTN:!!!
Sorry - my memory fails me. The first stage or two have FULL circles to aim at
and the last one has only a QUARTER of the circle to aim at. Good luck again.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Now onto Possession. Not bad...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possession - 1 Star                                                          *
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Any team you want - I picked Arsenal.
Gold    : 00"30"00 - set time
My Time : 00"30"00 - set time
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1240

You have a full team, while the opposition start with a keeper and two players.
Their team will eventually increase to 4 outfield players - but it's still 
pretty easy. The aim is to play in and around the box, as close the goal as
possible, because this will get you more points. Just don't let the ball go
out of play and get tackled or try to score. Keep it simple, your Short Pass
skills should have increased with that Challenge a while back. Keep on your
toes!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possession - 2 Star                                                         **
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Any team you want - I picked Arsenal.
Gold    : 00"30"00 - set time
My Time : 00"30"00 - set time
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1190

Same as above really, but you have 8 players this time, while the opposition
will increase to 5. If you find this one hard (it is, quite) forget about the
rest and practice on this one until you're comfortable. Try to play with 4-5
players mainly - use the other 3 or 4 as backup only. Lead defenders away from
the box for an easier time - keeping possession and outnumbering the opposition
nearer the goal.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possession - 3 Star                                                        ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Any team you want - I picked Arsenal.
Gold    : 00"30"00 - set time
My Time : 00"30"00 - set time
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1124

Same as above really, but you have 6 players this time, while the opposition
will increase to 6. If you find this one hard (it is, quite) forget about the
rest and practice on this one until you're comfortable. Try to play with all 6
players. Lead defenders away from the box for an easier time - keeping 
possession and outnumbering the opposition nearer the goal. This can be really
difficult, try to keep possession with one player as long as possible without
passing - drawing MORE defenders away from the pack = good.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possession - 4 Star                                                       ****

Gold    : 00"40"00 - keep it this long for bonus!
My Time : 00"38"79 
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1017

My game is glitched and says I'm gonna have 0 players o_O Well, you have four
so choose midfielders and attackers only. Alternate passes and pass in 
formation like in "Short Pass" if need be. Good luck, trainee. You must pass
every five seconds, I think or you automatically forfeit. Quite gay but see
the timer underneath to keep watch on your pass time.

Damn, that's hard.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possession - 5 Star                                                      *****

Another zero players for me ^_^ Anyway, you have four again so choose wisely.
Your player can only hold the ball for four seconds this time, so not much
more difficult - still difficult though!

Phew!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Jesus. Now, onto Attack...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attack - 1 Star                                                              *

Player  : Any teams attackers - 3.
Gold    : 1250
My Time : 1350
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1350

It's basically get past the defence and score a good goal. You get two goes and
the points accumalate to a total. Just take the ball out wide and cross across
the goal or take the keeper on. Try to include all three of your players.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attack - 2 Star                                                             **
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Any teams attackers - 3.
Gold    : 1250
My Time : 1350
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1350

This time there's a defender aiding the goalkeeper - you still have three
players. Easy. Repeat what you did before but include the third player as a
vital role. There are now offsides, so watch out.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attack - 3 Star                                                            ***

Player  : Any teams attackers - 3.

There's two defenders this time - still the offside trap. Go for it. Try a fake
shot for a bonus points. How to execute one, you ask? JUST, and I mean JUST 
before the players foot connects with the ball press "A" or whatever your
pass button is to fake the shot and drag the ball wide of the keeper for an 
easy slot home!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attack - 4 Star                                                           ****

My Time : 1400
G Points: 1250
M Points: 1400

Bah. 2 defenders, two attackers. I really only use two attackers really - so
same difficulty as above, really.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attack - 5 Star                                                          *****
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Any teams attackers - 1.
Gold    : 1990
My Time : 1330
G Points: 1990
M Points: 1330 - took on 3 men

11 man defence. 1 man attack. Get past as many as you can for more points.
Can't really give you much advice part from ZIDANE TURN. They come one at a 
time which makes it slightly easier.

Onto the LAST section...defence!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defence - 1 Star                                                             *

Player  : Owen - speed demon :D
Gold    : 1980
My Time : 1891
G Points: 1980
M Points: 1891

Just nip the ball off the two attackers. Simple.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defence - 2 Star                                                            **
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player  : Owen & Campbell - speed + defence
Gold    : 1920
My Time : 1866
G Points: 1920
M Points: 1866

This time there's three attackers and two defenders. A bit harder but they'll
cock up quickly - just close down with Owens pace.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defence - 3 Star                                                           ***

Player  : Any of your choice - I used Rooney =D
Gold    : 1920
My Time : 1947
G Points: 1920
M Points: 1947

Same as above, but with one defender. It's hard to give tactics for this 
defence mode...just try - they'll make the mistakes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defence - 4 Star                                                          ****

4 attackers, one defender. HARD. Just stay somewhere in the middle and 
intercept a stray pass. Sorry..Actually, the space you have is invalable.
Anticipate the first pass - it CAN work.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defence - 5 Star                                                         *****

M Points: 1899

1 in a pentagon. Ouch. Just collect a stray pass - patience is of vurtue(sp).
If it fails first time, keep trying - it WILL WORK.

Hah, I just pwned the AI. Stay STILL until !!!JUST!!! the moment he kicks the
ball (the first kicker) and go down to intercept the pass. He may pass it a
different way - follow the pattern and learn where to go.

We're done...o_o
