|The Court|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Here is a diagram of a tennis court so you become acquainted with the names of
each part:

Center Service Line: The line in the middle of the Backcourt
Center Mark: The little line coming from the middle of the Base Line.
Singles Sidelines: The interior lines of the Alleys
Doubles Sidelines: The exterior lines of the Alleys
 _______
|Serving|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
When serving a player must strike the ball so it lands in the receivers Fore
Court on the opposite side of the Center Service Line, this area is called the
Service Box. If you don't understand that don't worry, it is very hard not to
hit it there in this game. Just use the Control Pad to move your character in
position, then press the A or B Button to toss the ball in the air. Now press
the A Button for a Top Spin serve, the B Button for a Slice serve or both
Buttons simultaneously for a Smash serve. Press a direction on the Control Pad
while you press the Button to aim the serve. For a sure fire Ace, make the
ball land in the corner where the Sideline meets the Service Line!
 _________________
|Receiving a Serve|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
When receiving a serve make sure you hit the ball after its first bounce or the
point will be awarded to your opponent. Also in Doubles you must not go over
the other side of the court (marked by the Center Mark).
 _____________________________
|Winning the Game, Set & Match|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
A basic rule of tennis is to make your opponent run a lot, try aiming your
shots so they alternate from the left to right sides of the court. Also
variations in the types of shots you do can confuse your opponent, for example
do a Drop Shot (B Button then A Button) so the ball lands just over the net
then when your opponent hits it back do a Strong Top Spin shot (A button twice)
so it flies over their head & to the back of the court. Another good tactic is
to play really close to the net, you will need much quicker reflexes but so
will your opponent. Also when you play close to the net against inexperienced
or low level players you sometimes will hit the ball into their feet, the
umpire always awards the point to you if this happens. Apart from that the best
advice is to keep your eye on the ball at all times!
 __________________
|Doubles Strategies|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Winning a Doubles match is simple, you must never leave a gap in your defence!
To do this have the "Up Player" (in the Forecourt) attack the ball furiously,
if you see a gap use a Top Spin shot or a Smash Volley. If there is a player 
really close to you and their support player is not behind them do a Lob Shot.
The "Back Player" (in the Backcourt) should support the other player by staying 
on the Service Line or Base Line and running back and forth to every shot (even
if it looks like the "Up Player" definitely has it).

3)FAQ
===============================================================================
Since we have both answered our fair share of Mario Tennis questions on the
board at GameFAQ's (http://cgi.gamefaqs.com/boards/gentopic.asp?board=29687),
we have decided to compile these questions & answers into a FAQ, here is the
product:

Q: Does anyone know of any Gameshark codes? 
A: Yes, Shdwrlm3 was the first person we know of to be able to hack some codes
   they are in Section 8)CODES & SECRETS.

- - - - - - - - - -

Q: How do I do 150 Swings in 10 Seconds?, it seems impossible!
A: Where there is a will there is a way! The best idea is to use the "Knuckle &
   Wood" Trick that was widely used in the Mario Party's. To do this get a
   hard object or your knuckle and wrap it in cloth or your sleave. Then rub it
   up and down over the A Button. Make sure you don't scratch your Game Boy.

- - - - - - - - - -

Q: Why is it so hard to win with my transferred character(s) in the N64
   Version?
A: All of the Mario Characters that you play against in the Tournaments are
   fully developed, so if your transferred character is on a low level (around
   less then 25) the fully developed Mario Characters will obliterate your not
   fully developed transferred character.

- - - - - - - - - -

Q: How do you get Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi & Bowser?
A: You need a Nintendo 64, The N64 version of Mario Tennis & a Transfer Pak.
   Then set everything up, then in the Transfer Menu you have to select the N64
   Characters option, then wallah! They are unlocked. See Section 9 for more
   info.

- - - - - - - - - -

Q: Why is my Double partner so useless?
A: Well it could be from one of two reasons.
    1)You neglected giving him/her Ex.Pts.
    2)The AI is to blame.
   Actually we have done some experiments and we think the AI is homogeneous,
   meaning if you play a certain style it will play the same style which may
   not be best for your Partners stats. For example: As Alex you usually run
   around with quick controlled shots, so Harry will run around with quick
   controlled shots which does not suite his generally Power & Spin based
   stats. This means instead of making them have contrasting stats you should
   make them have similar stats. 
 
- - - - - - - - - -

Q: How do I make my shot curve like Curt & Boo do?
A: Build up your Spin stats up alot, Slice makes the ball curve inwards (left
   if you right handed) and Top Spin make the ball curve outwards (right if
   your righthanded. 

- - - - - - - - - -

Q. What the heck is the Restaurant/Cafeteria for?!
A. In most RPGs, the Cafe is the player's best source of information! The same
   holds true for Mario Tennis! If you look at the manual, it clearly states
   that the Restaurant (called The Service Ace) is best used to get advice from
   fellow students to help you play a better game.

- - - - - - - - - - 

Q: Where the heck is Kevin?! 
A: Yes, it seems strange that you can play as Mark and Emily but not as Kevin,
   doesn't it? Well, it seems that they had originally planned to make him a
   playable character, and even made art for his face (the face that appears
   next to your score during a match). Unfortunately, it seems like they
   thought it was useless since you never have to play him in a match and thus
   they never had to create sprites for him. However, thanks to my trusty
   Gameshark, there IS technically a way to play as him, which you can find in
   the Gameshark section of the Codes & Secrets section. You'll see Kevin's
   face next to your score, but the sprite will look like A. Coz. (because,
   like I said, they never made sprites for Kevin).

- - - - - - - - - -

Q: The intro is too long! Is there any way to skip it?
A: Yes there is! Just perform a soft reset (Hold Start, Select, A, and B at the
   same time) and choose your Mario Tour file from the Main Menu again. You'll
   start off in your dormitory, and will have skipped that looong intro!

- - - - - - - - - - 

Q: Why did a lose all the data on my game when I used the Transfer Pak?
A: Due to the way the data is managed in Mario Tennis if you bump the Transfer
   Pak while you "Refresh" all data you can lose all the data on your Game Pak.

- - - - - - - - - - 

Q: I can't get the GS codes to work!
A: Hmm... that can be because of a variety of reasons. Make sure you're using a
   V 3.0 or 3.1 GS. Also, make sure you're entering the code correctly. Always
   push the GS switch to the OFF position before starting the game. If your GS
   always freezes, it's most likely the cartridge itself, and not the GS,
   causing the problems. If that's the case, try to get a replacement
   cartridge, or, if you're still fairly early in the game, clear the RAM
   (Saved Data) on your cartridge. I can't promise that either of those methods
   will work, but I personally am having no trouble getting the codes to work,
   so I don't know what else to tell you.

|Junior Class|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
After all of the intro (Bumping into the headmaster & the tour with Emily) you
will be in you dorm with your partner. So ask him/her questions then when your
ready head to the Training Court. Look at the Training Lessons section if you
have trouble on any of the following Lessons. Firstly head right and talk to
Blue Beth who is standing below a umpires chair, and you will start the Net
Game Practice 1. Once that is finished talk to Blue Brian above her to compete
in Net Game Match 1 with him. Now head left and talk to Pink Bob who is talking
to Red Allie, and you will start the Stroke Practice 1. Now once you have 
completed that talk to Red Allie to compete in Stroke Match 1 with him. After 
beating him head up and talk to Red Curt to start the Service Practice 1. Once 
that is out of the way head up and talk to Blue Bob to compete against him in 
Service Match 1. Now exit the Training Court and head to the Junior Class 
Court. But if you want the next matches to be extremely easy get your levels up
by going into the Training Center and playing the Wall Practice in the door to 
the left & the Tennis Machine in the door to the right. See the Training 
Lessons section for more info. Anyway head to the Junior Court.

Firstly you can play a practice match (3-Set/6 Games) with Brian, who is the
the guy wearing a sweat band in green sitting on a bench. Then go and talk to 
Junior Class Coordinator who is the guy wearing blue right in front of where 
you enter this court, he will organise matches with the 4th, 3rd, 2nd & 1st 
Ranked Players in the Junior Class. They are all 3-Set Matches (6 Games a Set)
here are strategies for playing against them:

4th Rank Match - Pam
 Extremely easy, just stay on the baseline and return her shots with a lot of
 power.
 
3rd Rank Match - Curt
 Still very easy! Just use the Drop Shot, run to the net & Smash technique.
 He is very slow but has extremely strong slice, so watch out when he serves!

2nd Rank Match - Beth
 Stay around the service line and vary your returns, eventually & inevitably
 she will miss one in the Rally.

1st Rank Match - Bob
 He's fairly hard if you're on a one digit level. Like Curt, just use the Drop
 Shot, run to the net & Smash technique, as he is a big slow oaf!

After beating Bob the Junior Court Coordinator will award you the Singles
Junior Class Medal.

 ____________
|Senior Class|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
If you feel like changing your racket, go to the Repair Counter in the
Training Center and talk to the guy. You can now use the Large Racket. It
increases your control, but lowers your power and speed. Once you're ready go
to the Training Court and talk to all the people you did before to compete in
all the Level 2 Practice & Training Matches. See the Training Lessons section
for strategies. Then go to the Senior Court, talk to Orange Fay who is swinging
her racket on the far left court to play a senior practice match with her 
(3-Set/6 Games). Then talk to Emily, who will organise matches with the 4th, 
3rd, 2nd & 1st Ranked Players in the Senior Class. They are all 3-Set Matches 
(6 Games a Set). Here are strategies for playing against them:

4th Rank Match - Red Brian
 This guy is a breeze, just play an aggressive net game!

3rd Rank Match - Pink Joy 
  Just stay in the backcourt and hit back hard, if she gets too close to the
  net lob the ball over her head.

2nd Rank Match - Yellow Allie
  Just use the Drop Shot, run to the net & Smash technique. This guy falls for
  it every time. And I do mean *EVERY* time!

1st Rank Match - Blue Fay
  Stand around the Service Line and just keep hitting back a variety of shots.
  She is fairly challenging but you should have her down in no time.

After beating the Blue Fay, Emily will award you the Singles Senior Class
Medal.

 _____________
|Varsity Squad|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Now go to the Training Court and talk to all the people you did before the last
two times to compete in all the Level 3 Practice & Training Matches. See the
Training Lessons section for strategies. Then go to the Varsity Court. You
can talk to Green Fay who is swinging her racket on the lower part of the
court to play a Varsity practice match with her (3-Set/6 Games). After that
talk to Kevin (the one in green) and he will set up a match with the 4th
ranked Travelling Team member.

Travelling Team Ranking Match - Blue Bob
 Use a combination of aggressive net play and the drop shot technique to beat
 him. He is really just a faster Bob!

Then Kevin, Mark, Emily and your partner will congratulate you and a screen
with TO BE CONTINUED will come up.

 _______________
|Travelling Team|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Now after continuing your file, your partner will tell you that you have to go
to the headmasters office. In his office the headmaster will congratulate you
then he will tell you to that your going to the Island Open in the morning.
When you wake up you, Mark, Emily, Kevin & the Headmaster will fly off to the
Island Open. Now explore the island then go to the Organisation Centre (in the
middle, below Center Court) and stand on the free circle next to the unpaired
player each round to play. All matches at the Island Open are 5-Set/6 Games and
the people you play are...

1st Round - Sammi
 To beat Sammi stand just behind the Service Line and return her shots the best
 you can, from rallying you will eventually win.

2nd Round - Spike
 Spike uses a tricky curving Drop Shot. The effect of the curve is larger the
 further back on the court you are so... Play an extremely aggressive Net Play
 game.

3rd Round - Emily
 Emily's biggest weakness is her dive! She misses a lot with it and it takes
 her a while to get up from one. So attack her style of play with swaying Net
 Play, i.e Hit to the left then hit to the right, repeat while up close to the
 net.

Final Round - A.Coz
 Use the "Drop Shot, charge the net & hit a Strong shot" technique. And you
 should win in no time.

After winning you, Kevin & A.Coz will go to the Medal Ceremony. A.Coz is
extremely sour because of his loss. Once you have been awarded the Island Open
Trophy, the credits will roll. Followed by another TO BE CONTINUED.

Then you'll will appear in the headmasters office. And the headmaster will tell
you about Mario. Mario has given you an invitation to play him in Mario World.
You'll hop on a plane and fly to somewhere under the rainbow... and the game
will reset. Once you continue your game you will find yourself in Peach's
Castle. All the gang is here! The villains want you to play Mario right away,
say yes if you want to play right away or no if you don't. You can always come
back and talk to the Princess if you want to play Mario.

Exhibition Match - Mario
 Mario is best faced by standing behind the Service Line and rallying back
 strong varied shots. But if that doesn't work try doing a Drop Shot so it
 lands right on the edge before the Alley, then when Mario hits it hold the
 direction opposite to the alley and tap the buttons a lot, the ball will knock
 back and forth between you and Mario, but will hopefully roll off past Mario.

After beating Mario you sill see a little scene of your character with the
Mario gang. Press a button then the credits will roll again but this time they
will show in order the events of the game. Congrats! You have finished the
Singles Mario Tour. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ii)Doubles
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can select to play with your partner using two different ways:

you want to play Doubles with them.

===============================================================================
5)TRAINING LESSONS
===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i)Training Court
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Mario Tour mode, the coaches in the Training Court will teach you
various techniques that are very helpful into getting to the Island Open.
Here are strategies for completing them:
 ____________
|Junior Class|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
All of these lessons give you 50 Exp Pts on completion.

Net Play Practice 1
 Stand on the Center Mark the serve, when you serve hold the direction away
 from the receiver. Then as soon as you serve head up past the Service Line and
 hit the ball so it lands in the Target Area. Do it 4 times in a row to clear
 the practice

Net Play Match 1
 Use the same technique as the Net Game Practice. Don't worry about your
 challenger he hardly ever volleys, so he never gets any points. If you win and
 he misses you win.

Stroke Practice 1
 Just return all the serves to the target area. To do this effectively head up
 to the middle of the court and use a Slice shot, as other shots may not have
 enough carry to get past the opposite Service Line.

Stroke Match 1
 Stand behind the Service Line and rally (mainly using Slice) until you get 2
 up on him so you win.

Service Practice 1
 Very easy! Just stand right on the Center Mark and while you serve hold the
 direction of Target Area.

Service Match 1
 Stand on the Center Mark and do a Smash Serve so it lands just before the
 alley. Hope for the best when returning his serves.

 ____________
|Senior Class|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
All of these lessons give you 100 Exp Pts on completion.

Net Play Practice 2
 Stand on the Center Mark, then hold the direction of the target area and do a
 deep Slice Serve. Then run up past the Service Line and do a Smash Shot. Once
 you do it from all 4 spots you will clear the practice.

Net Play Match 2
 Stand right near the alley do a deep serve, this will cause the opponent to
 dive for the ball (so he cannot lob). Returning his lobs is easy, so just do
 it!. Just make him dive twice and return his lobs twice and the you will have
 won the match.

Stroke Practice 2
 Stand on the Service Line and hold the direction the Target Area is and do a
 Lob. Once you do it from all 4 spots you will clear the practice.

Stroke Match 2
 Just do as you did in the Practice, and make sure you get in front of that
 service line to return his lob.

Service Practice 2
 Just stand on the center mark and use Slice if your serving left of your
 character and Top Spin if your serving right of your character, and hold the
 direction of the target area while you serve. After you serve properly from
 all four spots the practice is cleared.

Service Match 2
 Stand a little in from the Center Mark. And serve so it flies through the pole
 and curves towards the service box. To do this you have to hold the opposite
 direction your serving while putting spin on the ball towards the Service
 Box. For example on the first serve you would hold diagonally right/up while
 applying Slice to the ball. 

 _____________
|Varsity Squad|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The last level of training lessons, all of these give you 200 Exp Pts on 
completion.

Net Play Practice 3
 Serve down the line, so in other words stand on the Center Mark and hold away
 from the target area when you serve, then run up past the Service Line and do
 a drop shot. 

Net Play Match 3
 Just Serve down the line but hit the ball just as it about to come down to
 head level, so the serve is slow. Then run up past the Service Line and Slice
 it past the other guy. Do this twice and prevent him from scoring twice to
 win.

Stroke Practice 3
 Stand just before the Service Line then when you return hold the direction of
 the target area (up or down) and the opposite direction the serve is coming
 from (left or right). So the direction you hold is a diagonal! Use a Flat Shot
 for best results. Do it from all four corners to clear the  practice.

Stroke Match 3
 Just return the serves the best you can using the techniques you have learned
 in the 3 Stroke Practices. Get 2 up to win.

Service Practice 3
 Serve Down the Line, so stand on the Center Mark and hold away from the
 target area while your serving. Hit the ball when it is about reach it's
 highest point for a NICE! serve. Do it from all four corners to clear the
 practice.

Service Match 3
 If you have strong Power Serve down the line. If you have strong spin use it
 like you did in Service Practice 2. If you have neither use a bit of both
 techniques. Get 2 up to clear the final Training Lesson.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ii)Training Center
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 __________________
|Wall Practice Room|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Wall Level 1
 You have to bounce the ball against the Wall 50 times. It only has one
 rotating bumper that has two arrows facing left and two facing right.
 Just use a straight Flat Shot and whack it against the wall, then when the
 bumper is about to be in your way Lob the ball above the bumper. You get
 around 315 Ex.Pts for clearing this level.

Wall Level 2
 This time there are two bumpers, one with yellow down bumpers the other with
 red up bumpers. You cannot lob it above a bumper when it is in front of you
 as it will hit the other bumper. So you have to hit it just before a bumper
 when it comes across, then you must hold the opposite direction it's moving
 while you hit it when it returns. If you have enough control it should go pass
 the bumper. Once you hit it against the wall 50 times the level will be clear
 and you will get around 415 Ex.Pts.

Wall Level 3
 Same deal as Level 3 but the bumpers change their colour and direction. Use
 the same technique as before to clear the level. After 50 bounces against the
 wall the level will be clear and you will get around 515 Ex.Pts.

Wall Level 4
 This is like Level 3, but it has an extra bumper like the one in Level 1.
 It's hard if you don't know the technique. Which is to stand in the middle of
 the court and use different shots according to their formation, so basically
     _                            _   _
   _|_|_  = Use a Flat Shot or   |_|_|_| = Use a Lob Shot
  |_| |_|   a Top Spin Shot.       |_|
 
 You usually will just have to alternate between Flat/Top Spin Shots & Lob
 Shots. But you may have to do a double Flat/Top Spin Shot a couple of times so
 the timing isn't off.

Wall Master Level
 Similar to the Challenge levels of the Mini-Games, all you do is try to break
 your own record (plus get experience). Try to see what happens if you get
 9999...
 ___________________
|Tennis Machine Room|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Machine Level 1
 You have to return 15 shots from the Tennis Machine. No mean feat!, just
 return to the middle after every shot. You get around 102 Ex.Pts for
 completing this Level.

Machine Level 2
 This time it moves back and forth for a minimal difference in difficulty, and
 you have to return 30 shots from the Machine to clear the level. You get
 around 204 Ex.Pts for finishing this level.

Machine Level 3
 This time it moves up and down as well as back and forth, and you have to
 return 60 shots to clear the level. You get around 409 Ex.Pts for finishing
 Level 3.

Machine Level 4
 This gets hard, not because of the accelerating speed of the the Tennis
 Machine. It gets hard because of the sheer boredom caused by the 100 returns
 you have to do to clear it. You get around 715 Ex.Pts for clearing this level.

Machine Master Level
 Similar to the Challenge levels of the Mini-Games, all you do is try to break
 your own record (plus get experience). Try to see what happens if you get
 9999...

===============================================================================
6)EQUIPMENT
===============================================================================
You can change your equipment at the Training Center. Just talk to the guy at
the counter to equip new rackets or shoes that will help you improve your game.
However, you won't gain any new equipment until you get into the Senior Class.

===============================================================================
7)MARIO MINI-GAMES
===============================================================================
All Mini-Games have three "Levels" which are Level 1, Level 2 & Challenge. In
Challenge you just compete to break your hi-score, but when your record is more
than the amount of points needed to complete Level 2 you will (sometimes)
unlock a court for use in Exhibition & Linked Play modes.  The maximum score
you can get in any Mini-Game is 9999, although this is easier to do in some
Mini-Games than others.
Note: Bowser's Mini-Game, Two-on-One, is an exception to the above.

******************************
      MARIO - Boo Blast
******************************
Boo Blast unlocks the Super Mario Court in the N64 Version. Just get more than
100 pts in the Challenge level, then select the "Refresh" option in the
Transfer Menu.
 ____________
|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Level 1- Score a point by hitting Boo as you continue your rally with Luigi.
         The points earned double for each consecutive stroke that hits Boo.
         The game ends if your rally ends. Your goal is 30 points. Mario,
         please work with Luigi to score some points! 

Level 2- Same as Level 1, except your goal is 60 points.

Level 3- Same as Level 2, plus:
         The high score is ____ points.
         Mario, Good luck trying to break the record.
         Mario, Try to break your own record!
 ________
|Strategy|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Try to concentrate only on hitting Boo. Don't worry if your shots aren't
consecutive, since you don't really need _that_ many points. Luigi can be a
major pain, since he often hits the ball so far away from Boo that even a
Slice Shot couldn't help you hit Boo. Sometimes he even does Smash Shots, so be
careful.


******************************
    LUIGI - Shooting Stars
******************************
Shooting Stars unlocks the Castle Court if you get more than 60 pts in the
Challenge level.
 ____________
|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Level 1:   Hit the star to get one point, or smash the star to get seven
           points. The points earned double for each consecutive stroke that
           hits the star. Your goal is 30 points.  Luigi, Be sure to aim
           carefully so you can get lots of points.

Level 2:   Same as Level 1, except your goal is 60 points.

Challenge: Same as Level 2, plus:
           The high score is ____ points.
           Luigi, Be sure to aim carefully so you can get lots of points.
           Luigi, Try to break your own record!
 ________
|Strategy|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The best strategy is to just rally *carefully*. But often the machine will
shoot out the balls at an extreme angle so only the Slice Shot can help you
angle your ball enough to hit the star. When the Star turns grey (after hitting
6 consecutive stars) the "doubling bonus" will stop doubling, so for any more
consecutive shots you will get 128 points. Also doing a Strong Smash shot
gives you 7 times the amount of points on top of the normal "doubling bonus".
This means that hitting a Grey Star with a Strong Smash Shot can net you 896
points!


******************************
     PEACH - Perfect Shot
******************************
Perfect Shot unlocks the Peach Court in the N64 Version. Just get more than
21 pts in the Challenge level, then select the "Refresh" option in the Transfer
Menu.
 ____________
|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Level 1-   Hit a panel to reveal a star and get a point. Your game ends when
           your rally ends. Your goal is 21 points. Peach, You'll have to play
           a perfect game to reveal all the stars.

Level 2-   Same as Level 1.

Challenge- Same as Level 2, plus: 
           After you hit all the panels, they flip over again, and you can
           continue your rally.
           The high score is ____ points.
           Peach, Perfect your shot for the perfect score.
           Peach, Try to break your own record!
 ________
|Strategy|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Wow...  This one's hard.  Beware the moving arrow bumpers in Levels 2 and 3,
which can cause major pain.  Vary between Strong and Normal shots to ensure
you hit all the targets. The hardest part is that you need to move constantly,
unlike DK's and Yoshi's Mini-Games in which you can stay in one place.


******************************
   BABY MARIO - Target Shot
******************************
Target Shot unlocks the Tropical Court if you get more than 60 pts in the
Challenge level.
 ____________
|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Level 1:   Return the balls into the target area for a point. Get a bonus by
           hitting the shot shown.

           Flat Shot:      3 Pts 
           Strong Topspin: 3 Pts 
           Strong Slice:   3 Pts 
           Smash:          5 Pts 
           Lob:            5 Pts 
           Drop Shot:      5 Pts 
 
           The bonus points depend on the type of shot.  If you don't hit the
           target, your game ends. Your goal is 30 points. Baby Mario, Hit
           well... Hit the target.

Level 2:   Same as Level 1, except your goal is 60 points.

Challenge: Same as Level 2, plus:
           The high score is ____ points.
           Baby Mario, Use your little limbs to get a high score!
           Baby Mario, Try to break your own record!

The first level is much easier than the other two as the Drop Shot and Lob
areas take up the whole court. And in order to Lob the ball into the back of
the court you must hold up, or it will fall short. Also, the in-game
instructions forgot to mention that if you do a wrong shot but it lands in the
target area you will get 1 Point.

A lot like DK's, actually. Shouldn't be too hard. Play it safe and just keep
doing Flat Shots to make sure the ball doesn't fly off to the side.  Of
course, you'll have to change this strategy in Levels 2 and 3 because of the
bumpers.


******************************
  DONKEY KONG - Banana Bunch
******************************
Banana Bunch unlocks the Jungle Court if you get more than 60 pts in the
Challenge level.

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Level 1:   Score points each time you hit a banana.
         
           1 Banana:  1 Pt
           3 Bananas: 3 Pts

           Your game ends if you don't return the ball. Your goal is 30 points.
           Donkey Kong, Stay focused... Don't go bananas. 

Level 2:   Same as Level 1, except your goal is 60 points. 

Level 3:   Same as Level 2, plus:
           The high score is ____ Points.
           Donkey Kong, Go wild if it means you'll get a high score!
           Donkey Kong, How high can you get? 
 ________
|Strategy|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The main thing you have to be careful about is the speed of the ball, if you
use weak shots (Drop Shot) the ball will bounce twice before you even get to
the ball, not to mention it running up to it will cram you up against the wall.
And if you use too fast shots (Strong Slice), Donkey will not have enough time
to manoeuvre. Using straight Flat Shots is the safest & best strategy, because
hitting the ball to the sides in the last two Levels can be extremely
dangerous. But make sure you use a Slice shot if it bounces to high, as a Smash
Shot is the last thing you want. If you want to hit the higher Banana panel use
a Lob Shot. In Level 2 there are arrow bumpers, these bumpers cause the ball
to fly up trapping Donkey into doing a jump shot (which is dangerous in this
Mini-Game). Also in Challenge the arrow bumpers are in a "DK" formation the "D"
bumpers face up and the "K" bumpers face down. The down bumpers force you into
running up before the ball does the second bounce, which as we said before is
very bad!


******************************
    WARIO - Treasure Box
******************************
Treasure Box unlocks the Wario Court in the N64 Version. Just get more than
300 pts in the Challenge level, then select the "Refresh" option in the 
Transfer Menu.
 ____________
|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 
Level 1:   Get a point for each time you return Waluigi's shot. Earn bonus
           points for hitting treasure.

           1 Coin:    5 Pts
           3 Coins:   10 Pts
           Coin Sack: 50 Pts
           Chest:     100 Pts

           The points earned double for each consecutive stroke that hits
           treasure. If you miss the target area, your game ends--unless you
           manage to hit treasure. Your goal is 200 points. Wario, it's your
           favorite pasttime-- collecting treasure!

Level 2:   Same as Level 1, except your goal is 300 points.

Challenge: Same as Level 2, plus:
           The high score is ____ points.
           Wario, Grab as much treasure as you can to break the high score!
           Wario, Try to break your own record!
 ________
|Strategy|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
If you want points, just focus on the treasures, since hitting the target area
only gets you 1 point, I believe.  It's an extremely easy mini-game, so you
shouldn't have any problems.

  WALUIGI - Medallion Match

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 
Level 1:    Return each of Luigi's shots and try to clear as many "L"
            medallions as you can with each shot.

            1st: 1 Pt
            2nd: 5 Pts

            5th: 150 Pts
            6th: 250 Pts

            Hit many medallions with one ball to get the most points. Double
            your points with smash shots. Your game ends if you don't return
            the ball. Your goal is 100 points. Waluigi, Don't let that
            goody-two-shoes Luigi win.

Level 2:    Same as Level 1, except your goal is 300 points.

Level 3:    Same as Level 2, plus:
            The high score is ____ points.

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The easiest Mario Mini-Game, Medallion Match is no real challenge.  The
medallions don't bunch up that close to each other at times, so it's best to do
an angled Slice Shot to increase your chances of hitting more consecutive
medallions.

|Instructions|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 
Level 1:    The rules are the same as a regular, 1-set match of six games. But
            you have to play against two opponents. Win six games before your
            opponents do to win the match. Since you have to win by two, a
            seven-point tiebreaker will be played if there is a six-game tie.
            Bowser, Don't let those sly guys fool you.

Level 2:    Same as Level 1, except it's a 3-set match of six games, and you
            must win at least two sets.

Level 3:    Same as Level 2, except it's a 5-set match of six games, and you
            must win at least three sets.

WOOOW!!! This one's easy on Level 1!!!  Wario (or whoever's playing the net)
will rarely move, and Waluigi isn't too hot on returning shots.
WOOOW!!! This one's impossible on Level 3!!! The Back Player will almost
always return your shots, that is, if the Front Player doesn't do it first! Of
course, it doesn't help that Bowser moves like a rock... We'll have strategies
when we beat it.

8)CODES & SECRETS
===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i)Gameshark Codes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's what you've been waiting for! EXCLUSIVE to our FAQ only, custom-hacked
Gameshark codes to enhance your playing experience! Now, what do I mean by
exclusive? That means they MAY NOT be reproduced ANYWHERE. DO NOT send them to
a GS code site or claim them as your own. These will remain ONLY here!! Some
of these took me more than an hour to hack (contrary to popular belief, they
are "terribly difficult" to find). DON'T even think of taking these as your
own! I hacked these for my own purposes, as well as to help those who were
requesting them. DO NOT force me to not publish the rest of my codes.

READ!!!

I am NOT responsible for any saves being lost or any other damage these codes
may cost. I have tested them, and if you use them correctly, things should work
perfectly.

Ready?

First, make sure you have a V 3.0 or 3.1 Gameshark, preferably 3.1.  Insert the
Game Pak into your Gameshark, then insert your Gameshark into your Gameboy.
Make sure the "GS Switch" is switched to the ON position (which would be to the
left). Turn your GS on, and enter the desired codes. NOW, go to Start Game.
BEFORE you choose Codes On, turn the GS switch to the OFF position (to the
right), or else Mario Tennis will not load correctly! Each code has more
instructions... MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THEM!

Leave your GS off until you reach the screen where you distribute Exp Pts. When
you're there, push the GS Switch to the ON position (to the left) and leave it
on. Now simply level up as you wish :) When you're done, turn the GS Switch
back to the OFF position (to the right), and continue with your game.

|Mini-Game Point Modifier|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Small Value     91XX7CC4
Large Value     91XX7DC4

For 9999 points, replace XX in the Small Value code with 0F and replace XX in
the Large Value code with 27. For those not familiar with what I'm talking
about:

9999 points     910F7CC4
                91277DC4

Leave your GS off until you reach a mini-game screen.  Turn your GS ON, then
immediately back off, and you'll have whatever points you want. If you wish to
beat a mini-game with this, you must still score at least ONE point! If you
miss a ball or whatever you'll still fail, even if you have a score of 9999.

OR
3 Sets Won       9103E0C8
5 Games Won      9105E2C8
3 Points Won     9103E4C8

Leave your GS off until you reach a court. Turn your GS ON, then back OFF. Now
all you need to do is win one point to win the match! If you're playing a 3-Set
match, use the 2 Sets Won code. A 5-Set match, use the 3 Sets Won code. Though
it won't appear correctly, the game will still recognize that you've won 3
Points if you've used that code. Just win one point to win the Game, Set, and
Match!

BE CAREFUL with this code! There are a few complications. The best way to use
it is to just let the computer win the entire Set.

                                   9127B7C2

This code is to be used with the Water Sprite Mini-Game. Leave your GS off

immediately back off, and you'll have whatever points you want. Enjoy your new
racket :)

Replace the XX with one of the above digits. Leave your GS off until you reach
Mario Tour mode. Turn your GS ON, then immediately back off, and you'll have
your new racket! If you want your new racket saved, just save your game! Using
this code, you can have up to 6 rackets saved! Remember, there are only enough
slots for 6 rackets (out of 7), so you'll still have to leave one racket
behind.

|Court Modifier|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
These took me over an hour to hack and test, so again I must repeat myself: DO
NOT publish these elsewhere! DO NOT send them to a codes site and do not post
them at message boards! If anyone wants codes, just direct them to this FAQ,
please!

Court Modifier     91XXF4C8

Digits
00 Hard Court

02 Grass Court
03 Composition Court
04 Star Court
05 Castle Court
06 Tropics Court
07 Jungle Court
08 Hangar Court

15 Wario/Waluigi/Bowser Mini-Game Court
16 Peach/Yoshi/DK Mini-Game Court
17 Wario/Waluigi/Bowser Mini-Game Court
18 Training Court

19 and above just freeze the game.

Replace the XX with a digit above and enter the code. Leave your GS OFF for
now. If you're using the code for Exhibition mode, go to the Court Select
screen and turn the GS ON. Choose the court that has the Ball Speed and Bounce
you want, but when you start playing, you'll actually be playing on whatever
court you chose with the GS code! Turn your GS back OFF once you start playing.
The problem with this code is that it's purely cosmetic. Say you input the code
to play on a Training Court, but when you get to the Court Select screen you
choose the Hard Court. Well, you'll be playing on the Training Court, but it
will retain the settings of the Hard Court (meaning it'll have Normal Ball
Speed and Strong Bounce)!

For any other mode, make sure to have your GS ON before you start playing a
match, but turn it OFF as soon as you do start playing!

Also, be aware that some of the courts will be a little glitchy. Well, perhaps
not glitchy, but it'll appear weird since you were never meant to play real
tennis on them. In particular, The Wall Court and the Peach/Yoshi/DK Mini-Game
Court will be a little strange to play on.

These also took me more than an hour (two hours, in fact) to hack and test.

19 Baby Mario
1A Mario
1B Waluigi
1C Yoshi
1D Bowser
1E Wario
1F Peach

From 20 on, the characters just repeat themselves.

Replace the XX with a digit above and enter the code. Leave your GS OFF for
now. This one's a bit complicated, so let's use an example...

Say you want to play as Mario. Enter the code 911A0BCA. Switch the GS switch
to the OFF position and start the game. Go to Exhibition Mode, and when you're
at the Character Select screen, choose Luigi, then choose any other character.
Once you're on the Court Select screen, turn the GS switch to the ON position,
and choose whatever court you want. Once you start playing, turn the GS switch
back off. Congrats! Now you're playing as Mario! BUT WAIT! Notice something
strange? Yep, Mario is now Green!

Using this code, you can come up with your own "custom" character! Want a Red,
Fast, Donkey Kong? Then enter the code to play as Donkey Kong and when prompted
to choose a character, choose Baby Mario! How about a Red, Powerful, Fast, and
Accurate Bowser? Just max out Alex's stats, input the code to play as Bowser,
and choose Alex! Orange, Slow Waluigi? Enter the code for Waluigi and choose
Wario! The possibilities are endless!

The "problem" with this code is that it's purely cosmetic. It'll only change
the sprites, but not the stats of your character. Another side effect is that
the character will keep the color palette of the character you choose on the
Character Select screen.

The great thing is this code still allows you to complete your Exhibition Mode
Chart! The game still thinks you're playing as whichever character you used the
code to play as!

Here are some of the most interesting codes and combinations:

Play as Kevin!     91140BCA
     -Read the FAQ section for details on this one.
Play as THE MACHINE!!!     91150BCA
     -AMAZING! Using this code, you can play as the Machine! When serving or
     diving, the sprite will change to Allie's, but otherwise you'll play as
     the Machine!
Play as a Maxed-Out Brian!     91060BCA
     -Brian's my fave original character, but there's no denying that he's a
     little lacking in some of his stats (he apparently has horrible Angling).
     Well, just use my upcoming Max Stats codes to boost up Alex, Harry, Nina,
     or Kate (dependign on what color you want Brian to be). Input the above
     code and choose your Max Stats character. You'll now be playing as an
     almost Invincible Brian! Of course, this applies to any other character.

Leave your GS off until you reach the Character Select Screen (if you're using
this in Exhibition Mode). Turn it on, choose your characters, then your court,
and start playing! Turn your GS back off when you start playing.

This is a pretty cool code, since you can change your character's color w/o
affecting his stats. The Gray colors are a bit graphically glitchy, but
otherwise they work fine. My favorite colors are the Academy Colors- make sure
to try it out!

ii)The Water Sprite
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oooh, this one is a doozy to figure out, unless you've seen the *REAL* ending.

Firstly, make sure you have the Iron Racket equipped. Next, make your way to
the Training Courts and head to the lake on the upper-right of the area. Talk
to the kid practicing his swing, and Alex/Nina will show off his/her own swing.
The kid will laugh, and your character will become angry. Now it's time for a
fun little mini-game!  Press the A Button as fast as you can in 10 seconds! If
you manage to press the button 100 times or more, a Water Sprite will appear
and hand you the Silver Racket. But... If you manage to press the button 150
times or more you will get the Gold Racket. You can only get one of these metal
rackets, so that means that the first time you break 100 you have to break 150
as well, which is a very steep learning curve!

You may visit the Water Sprite anytime after you've gotten into the Travelling
Team (in Singles) and have access to the Iron Racket! You DO NOT have to wait
until you've beaten Mario!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iii)Pick your Partner
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After finishing the game once (beating Mario) with either (Alex or Nina), when
you make another file in the Create Character screen you will able to choose
between Harry & Kate as your partner. Your room is determined by your partner
so if you play as Alex with Kate as your partner you will get the girl's room
with the kitty.

Astroblue has gotten this to work, but Shdwrlm 3 is having trouble getting it
to work. Expect confirmation by the next update.

9)NINTENDO 64 VERSION and TRANSFER PAK RELATED
===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i)N64 Version
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Nintendo 64 version of Mario Tennis is a lot different than the CGB version
but it's just as good. It's more smooth (of course) and doesn't have the odd
couple mix of a SPORT\RPG it's just SPORT (well, technically, it's a "wacky"
sport).

The N64 Version has the Exhibition mode like the Game Boy Version but it also
has the following modes:
Tournament        - Play in a Tournament of 8 players (3 rounds to victory).
                    There are three cups, increasing in difficulty (from left 
                    to right): The Mushroom Cup, the Flower Cup & the Star Cup.
Star Tournament   - Play in longer Tournaments, closer to the length of real
                    tennis matches. There are three cups, increasing in
                    difficulty and time (from left to right): The Rainbow Cup,
                    the Moonlight Cup & the Planet Cup.
Ring Shot         - Play Mini-Games that consist of hitting balls through rings
                    to get points. There are four different types of Ring Shot
                    games they are Game, Time, Balls & Points. 
Bowser Stage      - Like an Exhibition match but you play on a unbalanced court
                    and you can use battle items from Mario Kart 64.
Piranha Challenge - Mini-Game in which you try to hit balls that have been
                    spitted out by Piranha Plants past your opponent.

The N64 version has more Mario players to play with, instead of 9 it has 16.
The extra characters are Toad, Daisy, Birdo, Paratroopa, Boo, Donkey Kong Jr.
& Shy Guy (and no, there's no way to play as them on the GB version). But the
Game Boy version also has 20 original characters, 4 which you can transfer into
the N64 version (Alex, Harry, Nina & Kate).

The N64 Version plays exactly like the CGB Version, except the CGB Version uses
the Select Button instead of the Z Trigger for cancelling charge-up shots, this
has been done for very obvious reasons.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ii)N64 Compatibility
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unlike the N64 version of Mario Golf, you can Transfer the Game Boy characters
permanently into two spaces (1 pair of doubles partners per space).
However, in order to import any characters, you'll need a Transfer Pak (see
Transfer Pak).

By importing your character into the N64 version, you can view and hear your
character in 3D and play out a couple matches. What's great is that any
experience points you earn for your character on the N64 version can be
transferred back to the Game Boy Color version!

You should try boosting your character to Max stats and sending him/her to the
N64 version! You've never played as anyone faster or more powerful! A boosted
player is better than Yoshi any day!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iii)Transfer Pak
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Transfer Pak plugs into the back of a N64 controller.  Using this device,
the N64 version and the Game Boy Color version of Mario Tennis can communicate
with each other and send data back and forth.

First, make sure the Game Boy Color cartridge of Mario Tennis is plugged snugly
into the Transfer Pak and the Transfer Pak is properly inserted into the N64
controller. Next, with the N64 version of Mario Tennis properly inserted, turn
on the N64. Now between the "Continue" & "Special Games" options on the Main
Menu is the "Transfer" option, select it to be taken to the Transfer Menu.
