    0) Introduction
    ---------------
    Hey you, yes you, the reader.  This is my first FAQ.  It seems a 
    lot of people make their first FAQ for Budokai...  Anyway, I've 
    decided to make this Popo FAQ so that people who have some 
    problems with getting skills can find some answers here, and to 
    tell you a few things I've found out about the shop.  Hope it 
    helps you out.
    
    You can always mail me for further questions or comments, but 
    don't you dare be rude or demand that I reply asap!  I'm only 
    human, and I have tons of other things to do in my life.  I will 
    try to reply as fast as I can, or when I feel like it.  Just be 
    patient, and formulate your questions clearly!  (This can be done
    in English, Dutch or French)
    
    
    ------------------

    ----------------
    2) Capsule Table
    ----------------
    I won't tell you what a capsule does, because there are a lot of 
    FAQS which already do that.  I'll just make you a table with the 
    prices and the rarety of the capsules.  You should know that 
    there are 4 types of rarety: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super Rare 
    (yeah, I know, I've chosen the same classes used in Magic the 
    Gathering, hehe).
    
    As a rule, the rarer a capsule, the more expensive it gets, 
    costing a maximum of 12,000 Zennies (Frieza's Space ship).
    
    The # column shows how much place a capsule takes in the tray.

    d) Gamble and Recommended Capsules:
    -----------------------------------
    These are all the above capsules.  You can also get Dragon Balls
    in these two categories.  I usually only buy the capsules which 
    are recommended, though.
    
    e) Dragon Balls and Breakthrough Capsules:
    ------------------------------------------
    There are two types of capsules which aren't in the list:  
    Dragon Balls and Breakthrough.  You can't have get Breakthrough 
    Capsules without getting Dragon Balls.  These Dragon Balls are 
    random caps which sometimes appear in Mr. Popo's recommended 
    slot, and cost 8000 Z each (and they are Super-Rare caps).  Once 
    you have all 7 dragon balls, you'll be able to summon Shenron.  
    Enter your capsule list, and press X once you're on the screen 
    showing the Dragon Balls.  You'll be asked if you wish to make 
    Shenron Appear.
    
    Choose Yes, and a cool cinematic will show Shenron being 
    summoned.  He'll grant you one breakthrough capsule out of 
    three.  These three are chosen randomly by the A.I.  If the 
    capsule for your favorite character doesn't appear, you can 
    reset your game, and re-summon Shenron.  Your character's 
    capsule might appear in the list.  To get all Breakthrough 
    capsules, you'll need to summon Shenron 23 times and thus 
    you have to collect all 7 Dragon Balls 23 times.  
    
    Happy Hunting ^_^
    
    Breakthrough capsules are a type of Support Capsules, and are 
    always the last on a character's list.  It's a special type of 
    support, because it has the same effect as equiping ALL Special 
    and Physical caps a character has, plus the effects are maxed 
    out, just like when you equip 2 of the same type (e.g. 2 Kameha
    -mehas for max effect).  The only downside is that you won't be 
    able to equip any other capsules, since it takes up all place in 
    your tray.

    4) Acquiring Money Easily:
    --------------------------
    Keep in mind that this is a very cheap way of winning 
    tournaments, so don't complain if you think it's lame.
    
    Customize either Krillin or Kid Gohan.  Give them the Vaccine + 
    Viral Heart Disease Combo.  Your opponent will lose his health 
    without being hit.  Put the Round Time on 30 seconds, and enter 
    the Advanced Tournament.  Since Gohan and Krillin are both so 
    small, bigger characters, like Recoome, just kick right over 
    them!  Now, all you have to do is Guard all the time, and you'll 
    win in 95% of the cases.
    
    Presto! EZ 50000 zennies!
    
    Here's an additional way to get easy cash, submitted by Michael 
    Hahn:
    
    "Just as an additional way to make your way of making money even 
    easier, add the highest guard power up item the character has. 
    With this, unless they get a ring out, it will be virtually 
    impossible for them to do enough damage to win."
    
    So, either equip Bulma Armour, Evil Tribe Mystery Uniform, High 
    Tech Vest, Improved Nanomachine, Mysterious Vest or Mystery 
    Fiber Jacket, depending on your character.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    5) Buying Strategies
    --------------------
    There are two ways of buying capsules:
    	a) nine-capsule method
    	b) leave-and-enter-again method
    
    First I'll explain the Nine-Capsule Method.
    	There is a set maximum number of copies you can have of 
    	one type of capsule. Once you have nine copies of a 
    	certain capsule (I'll take Senzu Bean as example), Popo 
    	won't sell it anymore, and so you'll have better chances 
    	of getting rarer capsules.  (So, once you have 9 Senzu 
    	Beans, you won't be able to buy more). Although this 
    	method costs a lot of cash (6013000 Zennies to get it 
    	all), it is worth it in the end.  After a while, you'll 
    	be able to get rare capsules faster, especially those 
    	hard to get Dragon Balls.  You'll also spend more time 
    	fighting than trying to buy capsules, and since Dragon 
    	Ball Z Budokai is a fighting game I strongly advice you 
    	to use this method.
    
    	Alternatively, you can just buy those capsules which are 
    	worth 1000 or 2000 Z when recommended, and once you have 
    	every type of capsule 9 times, you can buy the rare and 
    	more expensive capsules in their respective categories.  
    	This saves even more time and money.
    
    Now, the Leave-and-enter-again method.
    	Popo's recommended capsule is always random, and as such 
    	it changes every time you enter the shop.  This is a 
    	relatively easy and cheap way of getting rare capsules, 
    	although it takes a LOT of time to get those really rare 
    	capsules and dragon balls.  If the recommended capsule 
    	isn't one you want to have, just leave the shop and 
    	enter again.  With a bit of luck, you'll get the one 
    	you want. This method is cheaper (it costs 1813000 
    	zennies to get one copy of every capsule, including all 
    	Breakthroughs), but it's a hell of a lot more boring in 
    	my opinion.
    
    Now that you know the two methods, you can choose which method 
    you'd like to use, depending on your style.  
    
    
    
    ---------
    6) Hints:
    ---------
    
    - NEVER buy "physical" caps, because no blue cap is worth 2000 Z.  
      They all cost 1000 Z if they're recommended! Just be patient, 
      and they'll all show up eventually in the "recommended" slot.
    
    - I personnally always buy all skills using those presented in 
      the recommended slot, even if they aren't always as cheap (e.g. 
      Frieza's Space Ship: 12000 Z) until I have most common and 
      uncommon capsules, then I use the other categories, except 
      gamble. However, some like using Gamble to get the Dragon balls 
      cheaper.  It's up to you which way you want it :-p
    
    - If you're bored from the world match, you can just go to story 
      mode to chill out, and you'll still get caps after every battle 
      (thx to llamaman 58, who reminded me of this!)
    
    
    
    
    ------------------------------
    7) Frequently asked questions:
    ------------------------------
    
    a) Q: Are there any cheats to get capsules?
       A: None that I know of, sorry.  Patience is a virtue!
    
    b) Q: There is one capsule I never have for each character, which is it?  
       It's at the end of the character's list.
       A: That's a breakthrough capsule.  Check above to know how to get 
       them.
    
    c) Q: How do I power up?
       A: Hold X to guard and press backwards twice, and keep holding 
       backwards, so you keep powering up.
    
    d) Q: Can I get Super Saiyan 3 or 4 for Gokuh, or Buu, or even Fusion?
       A: Nope, not in Budokai, anyone who says they have it, is lying.
    
    e) Q: How do I unlock Advanced and Adept tournament modes?
       A: Once you beat Novice mode, Popo will present Adept in his 
       recommended slot. Beat Adept Mode and you'll be able to buy Advance 
       in the same way.
    
    f) Q: When I go to Edit Skills-Change Caps I customize my character,but 
       the skills I put in the Capsule frame don't work in Duel, Practice,
       etc. 
       A: Choose Custom once you've chosen your character, and make sure 
       you've saved your customization on your memory card.
    
    g) Q: Do you have any Gameshark codes for this game?
       A: Nope, and I never will, because I refuse to use that machine.
       If you really want them, chacke www.gameshark.com or something
       like that.
