Cannot wait to dig into proper chao raising again (sorry SA: DX, but it just wasn't the same). Also, when the heck did this drop? I know I've been playing a lot of Borderlands 2 since it came out, but I've been looking forward to this since I picked up and completely beat SA: DX last summer. I poured countless hours into this on my GameCube back in the day and I've been itching for the chance to do it all over again.

I'm pretty sure it came out on the 5th or 9th of this month.

Ah, yeah, Borderlands 2 blindness, then. I've been busy and haven't been able to beat BL 2 with the speed I usually beat my games and I've fallen behind. Some people already have all the achievements (including the DLC that released like two days ago) and have multiple level 50 characters. Anyhoo, it's been a while since I've done SA 2 chao raising. I put in a bunch of time on SA 1's for the sake of getting the achievement and I remember their being a whole hell of a lot more involved in SA 2's chao game.

Right now I'm working on creating a Chao with all S stats without breeding. I'm looking at 160 hours and I still have to reincarnate it like 4 more times. Why can't I just bring myself to make it have babies and then have babies with its babies?

Just...don't overthink it, man I always bred my critters, because I never fully understood the evolution system. The amount of time I put into SA: DX has helped me out a lot in that respect.

I plan on getting an all S chao and then breeding it until I get another all S chao then keep having S chaos. I just don't want my chao family tree to look like an inbred food web or something :x

So, after A chao has reincarnated, all the stats go up, or just one? How does it work?

Just one. It's not random though. Basically you have to give them the right chaos drives or animals for the skill you want to level up (and make sure they don't eat to increase stamina... if you just leave your xbox on they will eat and stamina will increase instead). I find it the easiest to give them whatever animals necessary to increase the skill I want and then put them behind the pillar in the hero garden and stand in front of them so they can't escape from the wide end. It's much faster and easier to just breed chaos and try to eliminate the bad skills and keep the good ones. I am just going about it the long way for whatever reason.

Why are all the starting chao so crappy? I mean, on my chao's first evolution his stamina went from an A to an S, but that's the only stat that changed. How on earth do you evolve stats up to an S? I should think that most chao would die before getting anywhere close.

The starting chaos are crappy because the idea is that you need to train them in order to perform well in the competitions. Realistically you only need to get each stat to about a C and you will be good to go. Only one stat increases from each evolution which means that you only upgrade one stat one time per life. Just make sure to pet your chao to make it happy and it will reincarnate with the same grade (a chao reincarnates at 30 happiness, which means you have to make that heart above its head appear 30 times... This can be easily done be spamming "pet" but make sure that you dont accidentally jump on them or throw them because that takes away happiness). You keep 10% of the actual number but the letter will stay as it was. In this manner you can get everything to S.

However, the fastest way is breeding. When you breed the two parent chaos' letter grades are the lowest the baby's letters can go (so for example if you had two all S parents in theory their baby should also have all S stats), so if you are constantly weeding out the bad with babies you should get an all S chao in no time. Like I said, it's not really necessary to win the competitions though.

Sigh............i hate Chao Karate, the first 3 difficulties are easy but that stupid super mode sucks. It's retarded that i am going to have to get a Chao with a A or S rank on running and power, that is going to take me forever.

Chao's are fun, but sitting around waiting isn't.

They should have added something where we could swap Chao online. It should have been called Chao adoption center and we can pick up all the Chao that nobody wanted That would save a lot of time waiting for Chao to age, all this waiting around is just boring.

This is a brilliant idea, and I think that you could trade them in the original. That was the only way you could get some of the character chao like the tails chao. I wish they would implement a way to get them in this one, like finding them hidden in a level or something. Trading them online would be great. I only have one more stat (running) to get to S. It's at A right now. Hopefully it won't take too long to breed another all S chao.

How easy is it to actually get a reincarnated Chao ? the one i am focusing on right now is 2 years old and very happy, if i left my xbox on for however long is needed without touching the Chao will it definitely be reincarnated?

Yup as long as it has 30 happiness it will definitely reincarnate. Like I said earlier you can do this by just petting it repeatedly. As far as I understand each time the heart appears it gets +1 happiness. If you throw it it gets -5 and if you jump on it it gets -30. Happiness can range from -100 to +100 so basically if you have been petting it and haven't jumped on it you should be good to go. In order for it to evolve in to one of those Chaos chaos it will have to have +50 happiness (among other things). The only thing that sucks is that the happiness level is hidden so you can't look and see how happy it is.

Happiness won't go down overtime if you ignore your chao if that is what you are wondering. I have left my xbox on for like a week so far because of this nonsense (actually more like two) and it has reincarnated every time. If you ever feel doubtful that it has enough happiness for whatever reason just leave and save then come back and idle. That way if it dies you can just shutdown the xbox and turn it back on and it will still be alive. That or you can pet it for like 5 minutes and you should be good to go.

You're welcome. Does anyone know whether or not the Chaos chaos can be taught at school? I know that they can't evolve, die, or breed. I don't want to turn it in to a Chaos chao before teaching it everything if it can't go back.

Oh, I know that the easiest way is breeding, but I saw a few people in this thread talk about getting all S ranks purely by reincarnation, and I'm boggled as to how they do it with the system you just described to me, especially considering that chao will eventually die.

I'm having some trouble connecting my Game Boy Advance...

In all seriousness though, how does one obtain an Exotic Chao in this version of the game? (Amethyst, Garnet, Peridot, etc.)

They only die if they arent happy. Otherwise they reincarnate. Mine is S in all but running (at A now) through only reincarnation.

I dont know. I was hoping theyd implement some system to get special chao like the tails chao via getting emblems or finding them hidden in certain stages. I guess its just impossible ATM. Sorry about the double-post guys, im on a Nook and it hard to operate double quoting lol.

Ah, I did not know that. We just thought it was something that happened naturally to older chao. Also, the strong seed is something I don't remember from my time with this game back in the day. Do the fruits from the strong tree have any special effects or anything?

Strong fruit increase the chaos stamina by 12% each bite and by 14% on the last one as opposed to just 10% from a normal fruit. However, right now there appears to be a glitch in the hero garden that makes the hero fruit ridiculously strong to the point where you level up the stamina once per fruit they eat.

Ah, I did notice that. I just thought it was because my recently evolved hero chao's Stamina was an S rank. Well, I don't mind it. Stanima is the most obnoxious thing to level up.

Yes, yes it is. I intend on putting my chao in the hero garden and just leaving it on for a day when I want to get it to 99. It seems to increase by like 30 a day if you just let them do their thing. I'm excited to finish this one chao up and then get back to the main game and start getting some emblems. I want to start making some cool looking chao.

It seems like ghsbe is the go-to-guy for this thread, but does anyone else know?

I would like to get my facts straight before I go running off and write angry letters to Sega.

"On other games, it is possible to get many more kinds of Jewel Chao: Ruby, Sapphire, Amethyst, Emerald, Garnet, Aquamarine, Peridot, Topaz, and Onyx; it is also possible to get Shiny Jewel Chao, which have strange and unusual appearances such as being transparent. Unfortunately, it seems that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions do not include any of these." I looked this up on Chao Island. I guess you can't get them. Sorry, mate.

I may well do that. I've beat all but the Final Story and am looking to do some emblem hunting and focused chao raising.

I got my chao to all S's and I'm currently waiting to see if it will turn in to an angel chao. I hope it works So far I have 260 hours logged in this game and I haven't even really done much of the story. I have the good and evil sides done but not the final ending, and I haven't even done like 10% of the missions. I've been leaving it on for my chao to age. I'm looking forward to knocking out the chao emblems once I get this chao to turn in to an angel chao. I can finally get that "raise every skill to level 10" achievement, too.
