Are you having trouble in this game? I'll answer some questions. Q: How do I get a new garden for chao? A: Simple. Just get a chao of that type. [Example: dark chao, dark garden.] A chao must evolve to get a garden. Q: How do I complete the third mission, find the lost chao? A: You ALWAYS need Mystic Melody for the character you are using. Sometimes, you'll need to be able to dig, break iron containers, and more. Good Luck! Q: In stages that you are timed to find the 3 emeralds, isn't there an eaisier way out? A: Yes, there is. If you get away from the starting point, and collet 1 or 2 emeralds, this might work. After collecting 1 or 2 emeralds, you may be thinking that you can't find the 2nd or 3rd one. Sometimes this'll work. Go back to where you started, and you might see the goal ring. If so, jump through and you'll start over, and still have the emeralds you already got! Q: How come I can't access the 2P battle? A: You need a controller in sockets 1 and 2. Q: In Tails' Route 101, don't hit any cars, I didn't hit any, and when I went through the last goal, I was taken back to start. Why? A: Well, you have to find the president's car, too! Q: How do I get more items in the black market? A: Obvious! You need to beat a couple of levels to get the secret items! Q: When I gave my chao a tree seed, he didn't plant it. Why? A: Your chao needs to win some races. You see, your chao will get a prize if it beats the course record, comes in first, etc. It will need the shovel and the watering can to plant a tree seed. The seed will grow into a tree and fruit will fall! Q: Is there a way to skip those boring FMV sequences and start the level? A: Personally, I like them, but all you have to do is press A or START. Q: How do I know a chao is evolving? A: A cocoon will form around your chao. Sometimes music will play, but usually it doesn't. Q: What's Mating Season? A: It's when flowers bloom around chao and they have a heart above their heads. Another chao will come over. In order for them to lay an egg, you must give them a heart fruit [Black Market, 300 Rings.] You will automatically get The Breeding Garden. Patience. It doesn't come every day, you know. Still, be prepared!!!!! Well, that's just about all I can think of. BYE!!!!!!!!!!
