This trick requires two memory cards. The Chao Garden and the adventure mode are stored as two separate files. You spend the money in the Chao Garden, but the money tracked on the adventures file. To duplicate money, copy the adventures file from memory card one to memory card two. Then, play the game. Use all the money to raise your Chaos. Once you have run out, delete the adventures file from memory card one and copy the file from memory card two. All the money you spent will be back, and everything you have done in the garden will still be present. For easy money, spend all the money on the most expensive items you can obtain and throw them into a Garden. Delete the adventures file from memory card one and copy the adventures file from memory card two to memory card one. Play the game, go to the Chao Garden, and sell all the items.
This trick requires two memory cards (with another Sonic Adventure 2 Battle file on the second card), a link cable, and a Game Boy Advance. Put the Chao to be duplicated onto the Chao Transporter. Drop off your Chao to the Game Boy Advance. Then, go to "Move" on the Chao Transporter and transfer your real Chao (not the one in the Game Boy Advance) to a Sonic Adventure 2 Battle file on the second memory card. Next, pick up your Chao copy from the Game Boy Advance and transfer it to the Gamecube. You can now move back your real Chao from the other memory card to the first file you were working with.
This trick requires two memory cards. To get two free normal Chaos at one time, put two memory cards in the slots. Transfer all your Chao into one memory card (through the GBA Station). Erase Chao data on the first memory card, transfer the Chaos back, and then you will find two Chao eggs. Note: If you have acquired the Dark and Hero gardens, they will be lost. You have to earn them back again with babies. Also, If all your Chao do not fit on the memory card, either get another memory card, or you will lose them.
Use the following trick to copying a Chao with two memory cards and no Game Boy Advance. Put two memory cards into the Gamecube. Next, copy your Sonic Adventure Battle 2 file from the first memory card over to the second memory card. This will delete your Sonic Adventure Battle 2 file on the second memory card if you had one. Next, go to the Chao Garden (it does not matter which one, on which card) and go to the transporter (the big Game Boy Advance), select "Move Chao", and transfer whichever Chao you want from the second memory card to the first. If you do not want the file on the second, delete it. You can do this as many times as needed.
This trick requires two memory cards and a Game Boy Advance with link cable. Take a Chao to the Chao transporter. Drop off the Chao in the Game Boy Advance. Then, go back in and pick it up. Immediately after you select "pick up", disconnect the link cable. If done correctly, you will have the Chao both in the Game Boy Advance and the Chao Garden. Move the Chao in the garden to the other memory card. Then, move the one in the Game Boy Advance to the first memory card. Note: If you do not move the one in the first memory card to the second memory card and try to pick up the Chao on the Game Boy Advance, it will erase the Chao in the garden, leaving only one Chao.
To copy a Chao with only one memory card, you need a Game Boy Advance and a link cable. First, put a copy of the desired Chao into the Game Boy Advance and unplug it. Save the game and turn off the Game Cube. Remove the memory card and plug in the Game Boy Advance. Then, go to the Chao Garden by entering the Emblem Results screen and selecting either "Chao Race" or "Chao Karate". Pick up your Chao, then insert the memory card into slot B. Then, simply move the Chao into the memory card.
This trick requires two memory cards. Enter the Chao garden then, pick up the Chao to be duplicated. Remove your memory card. Walk to the Chao Transporter and select "Move". Then, try to move the Chao you wish to duplicate to the other memory card. The message "No memory card detected in slot 1. Continue without saving?" will appear. Select "Yes". Once it has transferred, turn off the Gamecube. You should now have the Chao on two memory cards. Note: If you try to move one of the duplicated Chaos to another memory card with the same Chao already on it, there is a chance it will delete that Chao. This will also work with eggs.
Hero Garden for Chao
Take a Chao and raise it with a Hero so that it will resemble a Hero. Wait until it cocoons into an angel-like Chao (it will have a halo). Then, take the stairs going up at the Chao Lobby to reach the Hero Garden.
Go to Pumpkin Hill and find the Skeleton Dog. Exit and do it again until you have maxed the line. Go to the Garden with a Hero character. The dogs should still be in there. Keep doing this.

Your Chao's expressions depend on how many seconds you shake the egg before it hatches. About six seconds results in the V face and ten seconds for no expression face. To get the very wide smile you may have to experiment.
Preview evolved Chao
Get an already evolved Chao. Next, collect the animal you want to use (Dragons, Bears, etc.). Then, feed them to your evolved Chao. This will show you what your Choa will look like when evolved.
Soon to evolve Chao
Your Chao is close to transforming if it starts to sleep often. If you have another transformed Chao, bring the sleeping Chao to the Hero Garden and it will transform.
Determining Chao's gender
Give a ram to a Chao. If the horns are yellow, the Chao is male. If the horns are pink, the Chao is female.
Note: the first stat is the type you should make it and the second is the stat that you should raise very high after it evolves. This works best with Spotted Egg Chao.

Different Chao head
Go to the Black Market and buy a Red Apple or Cardboard Box. Take it to your Chao. When it is mature enough, give it the Apple or Cardboard Box to your Chao. It will be confused at first, then a "!" will appear above its head. It will put it on its head. If u do not want it on its head anymore, throw or punch it and it will pop off.
If you want your Chao to have an item on his head, such as a skull or a pumpkin, get a Skeleton Dog (small animal) which can be found on Church Mountain in Pumpkin Hill, as well as some other levels. Go to the Chao Garden and give a Chao the Skeleton Dog. Then, give it the item you want placed on his head. Skulls can be found by digging with Knuckles or Rouge in the Dark Garden; Pumpkins can be found by digging in the Chao or Hero gardens; and other items such as a Cardboard Box can be purchased in the Black Market in the Chao Kindergarten.

Finding items in Chao Gardens
You can find items such as pumpkins (regular and Hero Garden) and skulls (Dark Garden). As Knuckles or Rouge, go into the Chao world. When you enter the gardens, there are plants that have big green leaves that are usually in corners or against the wall. If you dig in all of them, you should find an item worth 50 coins. Note: This does not work all the time -- wait or return another time and they should be there.
Kill yourself in the Hero Garden
Go to the Hero Garden as Tails. Jump into the water and go to the deepest part. After a short time, you will hear the "danger" music and then die.
Chao swimming or flying
To get your Chao to swim, give it lots of animals that can swim. To make them fly, give them some flying type animals and bring them to the tallest cliff. Set it by the edge and he/she will walk off and start flying. Note: It may not fly the first time -- keep trying.
For a swimming type, give a Chao a lot of animals that can swim and yellow Chaos Drives. Note: Swim type animals may decrease other abilities, such as running, power, or flying. Set your Chao in the water for each level it goes up in swimming. You will soon notice that your Chao swims on its belly.
Chao band or choir
When one Chao starts to play an instrument or sing, pick up other Chaos and put them next to the singing/playing Chao. It will also start playing. Continue doing this and you will have a band/choir. Note: This works with all activities except for drawing. Some Chao may just sit down to watch and shake their heads to the beat.
In order to acquire the immortal Chaos Chao transform a Chao at least two times. This means that your Chao must create a tear-shaped cocoon around it self twice. After this has been accomplished, give your Chao (hero, neutral, or dark) one of each animal. On the third transformation, your Chao will become a Chaos Chao. Note: This will not work if your Chao dislikes you.
Raise your Chao's stamina to about level 7 to 15 to send him through his first metamorphosis. Leave the Gamecube on overnight while you are in the garden. It is recommended that the Chao be alone in the garden. Then, check your game and he should be a baby which is good. After that, repeat the first metamorphosis process. Once evolved again, leave it on overnight once more. Now that your Chao is a baby again (for the third time), give it one of every animal. Finally give it a Hero Fruit for Hero Chaos Chao, a Dark Fruit for Dark Chaos Chao, and a Chao Fruit for a Light Chaos Chao. Wait for awhile for your well earned Chaos Chao.
Start abusing your Chao with the type of storyline you do not want your Chao to grow up to be. It will transform eventually. Repeat this until it has transformed three times. As you begin the rest of the game, give your Chao each small animal you find and that one Chao. It will turn into a Chaos Chao.
Get a fresh egg (white and blue only). Feed it only Chao Fruits and train it nicely with both sides, Hero and Dark, until it evolves once. It will create a cocoon in the shape of the Chao's head. If done correctly, it will be a baby blue Chao again. Repeat the last step until it evolves for the second time. After it has evolved twice (it should still be blue), give it one of every animal. Then, give it a Chao Fruit for a Neutral Chaos Chao, a Dark Fruit for an Evil Chaos Chao, or a Hero Fruit for an Angel Chaos Chao.
Chaos 0 Chao
This trick requires a Game Boy Advance, Sonic Advance, and a link cable. Play the first stage on Sonic Advance until you have 14,000 rings. Then, buy an aquamarine egg. Transfer it to the Gamecube.

Buy a purple Chao from the Black Market and feed it plenty of Dragon animals.
Get a transparent Chao of any color. Breed it with a shiny white Chao. Save the shiny white's egg shell. The Chao should appear from the egg invisible. If it is invisible (except for the eyes, mouth, wings, and ball), give it some Skele-Dogs and put the egg shell from the shiny white on its head. Then, give it bats so that its wings disappear and use only Chao Drives to make it fly (recommended that it be higher than the rest), swim (needs at least 100 experience to learn), and walk (needs at least 50 experience to learn). , Make the fly stat very high. When done with the stats, give it some Half-Fishes to make its ball a flame. You now have a ghost Chao that floats and flies around your garden.
Pet any Chao that is a baby with Sonic until its ball is blue, then only raise it with Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles Note: Do not abuse it.
Ultimate Light and Dark Chaos

For an Angel Chao, use Sonic, Knuckles, or Tails to give all the animals. For a Devil Chao use Dr. Eggman, Shadow, or Rouge to give all the animals. For a Light Chao, use a combination of all the characters to give all the animals. Remember, if you want your Chao to rebirth you must not throw him or her. Pet them and feed them frequently. To get the best color for your Devil, Light, or Angel Chao, use the eggs that you get when you first entered the Garden. They are white with blue and yellow spots.

When you are in the Chao Garden, you will start with two neutral, normal eggs. Hatch one of them by throwing it against the wall with Sonic. When the egg breaks, abuse the chao (throw it, bounce attack on it, etc.) and it will start to turn black. It will have reddish-to-yellow feet tips and hand tips, and the same color on their devil tail and spike on their head. The Chao's floating ball should be reddish now, and an upside-down red crescent moon will be on its chest. Feed it one Chao fruit from the Black Market as Sonic. Note: Your Chao may not like you after this abuse. Then, keep on giving it Green Chaos Drives (run type) as Sonic and it will begin to walk around Run level 5. Next, feed it normal fruits and pet it, but throw it a little when it gets too happy. Then, use Dr. Eggman and give it a lot (about ten) of Green Chaos Drives and pet it until it is happy and loves you. Its dot will be a heart when you pick it up. Then, keep feeding it normal fruits until the following happens over the next few visits: red dot to light magenta dot to dark purple dot to blue dot to dark dusky blue dot and reddish hands and feet to yellowish hands & feet to pale yellow hands and feet to blue hands and feet As this process occurs, the red crescent moon will disappear, and two spikes should form on either side of the point where the ball floats over. For the final step play as Rouge and give the Chao Green Chaos Drives again. Then return as Sonic and feed it one last Chao fruit. It should metamorphose and come out as a black, dark allegiance Chao with neon blue bottoms on its feet, neon blue stripes up its arms, a neon blue spiky dot, and the crescent moon marking will be back (but will be neon blue also).
Mate a neutral Dark Chao with a white neutral Dark Chao. Note: It may not always be a midnight Chao; sometimes it will be white.
Buy a yellow (preferably shiny yellow) egg and hatch it. If possible, you want the "No-Mouthed Chao." Raise its Stamina and Flying a lot with Tails until it evolves into a Flying Hero. Then for its second evolution, raise its flying a lot and feed it a lot of Phoenixes with Sonic. After its second evolution, it should look somewhat like a Phoenix-like Chao. Continue raising its Flying very high for better effects. For another Phoenix Chao, do the evolution as follows: 1. Hero Running, then Flying with Phoenixes; 2. Neutral Flying with Phoenixes for a Phoenix-like Dragon Chao. Try to combine Phoenixes and Dragons so it has the horns and antenna, but the Phoenix's other attributes. Make sure it evolves Power, then Flying.
Red, white, and blue Chao
Buy a purple egg (the non-shiny one) and only go in with Shadow. Feed it only fruits that grow in the garden. Once changes into the blue-shaped cocoon, get a normal chao (from the blue and yellow spotted ones) and give it only yellow Chaos Drives and Sea Otters until its swim is at level 25. Then, only feed it the fruits that grow in the garden. When it goes into the blue cocoon, go to the Black Market and buy two Heart fruits. Drop them off in the Dark Garden. Then, take both of them to the Dark Garden. Give the one that came from the spotted egg one of the Heart fruits. Once it is completely done eating it and has flowers around itself, give the other fruit to the purple Chao. Once it is done eating, bring the one from the spotted egg next to the purple one. You should then hear romantic music and the two Chao should be kissing. Once they have an egg, pick it up and throw it a few times, alternating throwing and rocking. Be careful not to throw it against the wall. After that, whistle a couple times and it will hatch.

If you are planning on making this an Immortal Chaos Chao, you might try the fruits in the Tiny Chao Garden which raise the stats. Once it turns Neutral/Running, wait until it reincarnates and do the process again until it turns Neutral/Running/Running. After this happens, you will see that your Chao has grown big dreadlocks and little shoes like Sonic. If you bought the Gold Egg at the beginning, it should look almost the same as Super Sonic.
Mate A Yellow Chao with a Shiny White Chao until the offspring is a Shiny Yellow Chao. Then, make it a Dark Running Chao. Yellow is better than Gold because it looks more like Super Sonic. You make it Dark because the tips of the Chao's head point up just like Super Sonic.

Re-enter the Telepipe. You will see 3 Rappys staring at something. Talk to all three of them and walk over to place they where staring at. A Chao will appear. It will talk to you and give you the Key item "Chao Key". Get off Regol. In the city, by the Hunters guild, you will see a GBA machine similar to the one in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle's Chao Garden. Step on it and transport the data to the Game Boy Advance. A Chao will appear in the Game Boy Advance's Tiny Chao Garden. The Chao's name will be Tails with a ??? under it (its type is unknown). Transport the Chao to the Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Chao Garden. You will now have a Chao that resembles Tails with two tails, his ears, and the hair.
Get a Purple Chao and raise it with Eggman until it gets a Dragon head (pet it frequently). Then, give it nothing except Purple Chaos Drives and only feed it five Fruits.
Get every animal two times with a Dark character. It can be either be Rouge, Shadow, or Dr. Eggman. Give every animal two times to the Chao, and when his stamina level is at 7, put him on the flowers. The Chao should be in a Chao head-like cocoon and in a few seconds it should hatch into a Dark Chao.
Have a Dark Chao. When in the Dark Garden give it five Dark Fruits. After that, your Chao will sleep once you whistle. When he gets up, he will have a strange smile and start running around. He will hit other Chaos and knock them down.
When you enter Chao Karate, if you go to Expert you will see a Chao named Magic. First, pet a Chao frequently with Sonic, then get one of each animal and give it to the Chao. Then, get about eight Skeleton Dogs and give it to the Chao. All the animals should be gone. If not, keep giving him the Skeleton Dog then give it lots of Green Chaos Drives. This requires patience -- it should evolve when its level reaches 32. Note. If you leave the Gamecube on overnight, the spike on its head will get longer.
If you enter Chao Karate expert mode you will see either a Choa named Magic or a Chao named Chappy. To get a Chappy Chao, get a blue spotted egg. The ones from Sonic Advanced are recommended. As Shadow, feed a Chao all normal coconuts (the ones from the neutral Chao Garden) and one of their favorite fruits (Triangle recommended). Make sure it is not asleep for a long period of time. When it evolves, give it a Skeleton Dog, then a Cardboard Box. It should put it on its head.
To make your Chao a ghost, feed it lots of Bats.
Breed a Shiny Chao with a Jewel Chao. Jewel chaos are the ones from Sonic Advanced . The normal egg is not a Jewel Chao, but silver and gold Chao eggs are. When the egg hatches, it will be light green and transparent. Try using the egg that costs 5000 rings and the shiny red Chao.
Get a Sapphire Chao from Sonic Advance and mate it with a Shiny White Chao. When the new Chao hatches, it will be a Clear Normal Chao. Note: When you change it Dark, it will be a Clear Black Chao, and Hero, it will be a White Clear Chao.
To get a totally transparent Chao, breed a clear Chao (mate a Jewel from Sonic Advance and a Shiny) and a Shiny Lime Green. If you do not get it, reset and try again. You will only be able see its wings, face, and the ball on its head.
Get higher Chao ranks
Get the required Animal or Chaos Drive for the type of Chao you want. For example, the Yellow drive or Sea Otter for swim. Then, give them mostly that color of Drive or Animal. Eventually they will evolve into an adult. When this happens, if you gave them mostly yellow for example, the adult Chao will be a swimming type and if your rank in swim was, for example an "A" rank, it will go up to "S". To improve the letter rank in Stamina, make the Chao a normal type.
An ability rank are the letters S, A, B, C, D, or E (from best to worse) next to your Chao's ability when you see the doctor in the Health Center in the Chao Kindergarten. To raise the letter up one rank, have your Chao evolve into the type of ability you would like to raise. For example, if the ability rank in flying was A, raise your Chao until it evolves into a Flying Type and the A will turn into an S.
Get a stat increasing item (animals or colored vials). Pick one up and stand directly in front of your Chao, but not so close that he takes it. Drop the item in front of him. He should grab it and get the stats, but the item can be reused.
Faster Chao leveling
Note: This trick requires a turbo controller. Walk up to the Chao that you want to level up. Set the turbo feature to [B] and you will start to pet it. Keep that button pressed and allow the game to idle like that.
Get two Chaos to breed easily
Get two heart fruits. Give one to each of the Chaos and flowers will instantly bloom around them. Grab one and put it right next to the other. Note: To breed baby Chao, you need five to ten heart fruits.
When you pick up your Chao, immediately hold the Analog-stick in one direction while still holding [B]. You can release [B] when your Chao starts to rock.
If your Chao has already evolved and has another tear shaped cocoon around it, it is either being reborn or going to die. If the tear shaped cocoon is gray, the Chao is going to die. If the cocoon is pink, your Chao will be reborn and all stats will be divided by 10.
Fast light or dark Chao
Hatch an egg in the garden with any desired character. Use a Hero character for a light Chao or a Dark character for a dark Chao.. Pet the Chao so that it becomes either black or white. Keep feeding the Chao nuts. Once its stamina is at level 7 to 15, it will go into a blue cocoon and evolve.
Change Chao color to white or black with normal egg
After your normal egg hatches, decide if you want the Chao to be white or black. If you want it to be black, get either Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles and use that character to abuse your Chao. It will eventually turn black. If you want it to be white, use Rouge, Shadow, or Eggman and abuse it. Note: Chao will be extremely sad, scream, and run.
Get a Chao Garden through abuse
If you want a special Chao Garden but do not want to spend a long time petting your Chao, just abuse it. For example, if you want your Chao to be a Hero and get the Hero Garden, use Dr. Eggman, Shadow, or Rouge in the Chao Garden and abuse your Chao with that character. If you attack a Chao enough times with a character, the Chao will become the opposite of what your character is. In the example, your Chao will turn very white and become a Hero. If you abuse your Chao with Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles, it will turn black and become a dark Chao. Note: It will take awhile for them to cocoon themselves.
Open Chao egg easily
Throw a Chao egg against a wall.
Wake up Chao
If you go to the Chao Garden and your Chao is asleep, pick it up and bring it to the doctor within fifteen seconds from picking it up. Get the doctor to examine him. When you get back, he will be alert.
Keep Chao from going in the water
In the Hero Garden, put a Chao behind the first fallen pillar to the left where you entered. It should stay there because it will have a question mark above its head, turn around, and keep on thinking and turning around. This is very useful if you have Chaos that cannot swim and you want to leave the game on overnight. Note: This trick will not work if you put the Chao too far back from the pillar. You must put the Chao behind it so that it is almost touching the pillar. It works best if the Chao is in the center.
Chao life cycle
Be nice -> Cocoon (pink) -> Reborn
Child -> Cocoon (blue) -> adult ->
Abuse it always -> Cocoon(gray) -> Dies
If the Chao is an adult and you treat it nicely, it will remember you, turn into a pink cocoon, and appear as an egg. The Chao starts off at level 00 again, but still has its stats. However, if you treat your Chao badly as an adult, it will become a gray cocoon and disappear forever.
Chaos age about one year every four hours you spend in the garden that they are in. If you were in a garden for 24 hours, every chao would have become a baby for its second time (if it was already an adult).
Chao that never die
This trick requires two or more Gardens. When your Chao begin to transform, if it has a gray cocoon, exit the Garden, not the Chao World, then enter again. Look for your Chao, and if it has a pink cocoon, then it is safe. If not, reenter and look for your Chao quickly, and choose it (try this with Sonic or Shadow) and put it down. Then, pet it faster until your Chao has a heart when you pick it. Put it again until it creates a pink cocoon. If it still has a gray cocoon, reenter the Garden and pick it quickly. Exit that garden with your Chao in hand and enter another garden. Put it down and pet it, and it will create a pink cocoon. If this does not work, keep trying the last step until it does. Note: This does not work all the time, so keep trying.
If your Chao forms a gray cocoon, reset the game and put your Chao in Kindergarten. Then, go to the Chao Garden and get all of the coconuts in one place. Next, go to the Hero Garden and get all the coconuts in one place there as well. Then, get you Chao, go to the Chao Garden, and put it down where all the coconuts are locted. Quickly give it all the coconuts. Then, pick it up and bring it to the Hero Garden. Make it eat the coconuts there, then wait. It will make a pink cocoon. Note: This will not work if your Chao dislikes you.
Name Chao yourself
Go to the fortune teller with your Chao. When she offers a name for your Chao and asks whether you like it, answer "No". She will make another suggestion. Answer "No" again. She will then ask if you would like to name the Chao yourself. Answer "Yes".
Delete animal characteristics from Chao
If you have a Chao with strange animal characteristics, simply give it a few Skeleton Dogs. Your Chao will return to normal. If you want to give it an animal and you do not like the outcome, repeat the process again.
Regular teenage Chao
To keep your Chao from becoming a Dark or Hero Chao before it evolves, alternate between Hero and dark Characters every visit. If the colors of your chao start to change, simply pet the Chao with the other side until it returns to normal.
Use a link cable and connect a Game Boy Advance to the Gamecube. Get Sonic Advance and enter the Tiny Chao Garden. Keep transferring Chaos to the big Chao Garden for a free unlimited supply.
Faster Chao growth
Transfer the Chao that you want to level up to the Tiny Chao Garden in Sonic Advance. Keep giving it fruits until it is at a good enough level and it will grow faster than in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle . Note: Your Chao will not age in the Tiny Chao Garden.
Avoid Chao race losses
If you are racing your Chao and know you will lose, press [Start] and select "Exit" and it will not be recorded as a loss.
Waking Chao up
Sleeping Chao are annoying because you cannot feed them. To wake them up, stand next to it and whistle. You do not have to anger them by picking them up during a little nap.
In the Chao Garden, pick up your Chao and carry it on top on the entrance of Chao Karate and Race. Leave your Chao there, then go in front of the water, facing your Chao that is on top. Whistle, and it will fall and glide towards you.
Not worrying about Chao aging
Note: This trick requires a Game Boy Advance, Sonic Advance, and a link cable. If you raise your Chao on the Game Boy Advance, you do not have to worry about it aging. If you are trying to save time, the Chao does not age at all. This is a good way to level up your Chao if it is at its third life (two transformations).
Chao sleeping sitting up
Let a Chao run up to get a fruit. As soon as you hear the sound of it grabbing the fruit, take the fruit away. The Chao should still be eating and after a while a fruit will appear.
Chao in a cage
In the Dark Garden, keep throwing a Chao at the cage and it will eventually go in.
Alternately, jump on the tombstone to the left, then jump into the cage from there. To put a Chao in it, you have to be at the very edge of the cage.
Alternate view in Chao Lobby
Enter the Hero Garden then go back out. Walk off the side and control your fall so it looks like you are under the entrance when you land. You can go to the Kindergarten and Dark Garden, but the camera will remain on top of the stairs.
Land in cage
As Shadow, enter the Dark Garden and go to the big tree on the right. A cage is hanging on the side that is facing the pool of blood. Jump up and you will land inside it.
Eggman in a cage
Go to the Dark Chao Garden with Eggman and stand on the tomb near the small cage hanging on a tree. From the tomb, jump into the cage and Eggman will be caged. If you then jump, his head will be a skull.
Quick Chao transformation
Keep petting your Chao and it will eventually transform.
To do this trick, you must not care if you abuse your Chao. To get a Hero Chao, abuse your Chao with a Villain. To get a Dark Chao abuse, your Chao with a Hero. You can tell if your Chao is turning good if it is mostly white and has a blue ball over its head. You will know its turning bad when it is black and most likely has a red collar or a point on its tail. Get the stamina to level 7. Note: If you are transforming a different color Chao (for example, blue, red, shiny blue), its body may not change color, so look at its wings (bat or not), tail (pointed or not), and the ball (red or blue) on its head.
For your Chao to evolve fairly quickly, you must feed it Coconuts until its stamina is above level 10. For a Dark Chao or Hero or Neutral Chao with their head on fire, just give them only Half Fishes. For a Chao with a drill-like head, give it lots of Gorillas and Tigers. For a Dark Jester Chao, give it mostly Peacocks and Condors. For a Shark Chao, give it only Sea Otters, Half Fishes, and Seals. For a Chao with green streaks such as Shadow, mostly raise it on Cheetahs and Unicorns. After its head starts to part differently, feed it until its stamina is at level 11 or higher. Note: If you are looking for a Chao that is good in races, raise a Dark Running Chao with mostly Cheetahs and Unicorns. For a Chao that is good in Power Karate, raise a Chao heavily on Gorillas and Tigers. Robotnik's first level, Iron Gate, is the best place to raise a Power Chao.
If you have the Dark Chao Garden, throw a newly hatched Chao into the blood-like water. Watch it for a while and it will transform. If your Chao comes out, throw it back in.
Evolve at least one Chao to make it a hero (in the Hero Garden).Then, take a "baby Chao" that has only a few stats (for example, level 1 for swim, level 3 for flying, level 0 for power) and has a hearty appetite (or is hungry). Pick up the Chao and bring it to the Hero Garden. The white pillar on the left hand side of the garden is knocked down. Take the chao and put it directly next to the pillar on the side that is facing the rock wall. If you placed it correctly, it cannot leave that space, can only be behind the pillar. Get a fruit and feed it to the hungry Chao. If it eats it all, it may evolve. This may not happen, and the process may need to be repeated. Make sure you hear the "grum grum" sound that they make when they are hungry and eating a fruit. Watch and they might evolve. Your Chao may need to be out of its egg for a little while before you do this.
The following signs indicate that your Chao is close to transforming. If you have a Dark Chao, it will sleep a lot and have a spear-like tail. If you have a Hero Chao, it turns white (if not already white).
Hidden Chao transportation
Walk up to the Chao Kindergarten when an item is in your hands and your Chao is at a classroom. When selecting "Pick-Up Chao", if you still have the item in your hands, your Chao will not be in your hands. It will be in the Chao Garden (if your cocoon has hatched -- go to either the Hero or Dark garden).
Hatching your Chao
If you are having trouble hatching your Chao, hold it for about ten seconds then whistle. It should pop out.
For a quick hatching Chao, pick up a Chao egg and throw it against the wall. Note: This may affect your Chao's appearance.
Raise Chao's stamina
To raise your Chao's stamina easily, when you feed your Chao a fruit, stand behind it. When your Chao throws it, you can pick it up and bring it back. You can do this repeatedly.
Use the following trick to get a powerful, young Chao. Either use Chaos Drives, Small Animals, or Chao Fruits. When you raise them, only go in the Chao Garden when you want to raise the Chao and not to play with it. If you still want to play with your other Chaos, put the one you are raising in a separate garden, all by itself. By following this, it is possible to have a two year old Chao with all its stats at level 99 (the highest level).
Getting your Chao to like you more
Treat your Chao with respect. Learn your Chao's personality, favorite food, and how well it does things. Give it a lot of Chaos Drives and any small animals. Let it compete in races and karate matches frequently. This should make your Chao your best friend.
Double Chao petting
In any Chao garden, put two Chaos next to each other. Start petting one of them and they will both have hearts on their head.
Chaos Drive colors
Reuse Chaos Drive or animal
Get a Chaos Drive or animal and go to your garden. Take either one and bring it to your Chao, but do not give it to them. Drop it directly in front of them, very close. They will get the points but they will leave it there to use over and over. Try giving it fruit, then do it so its not moving around.
Note: This is very difficult to do. Make sure that you have your Chao secure (do not let it move). Back up slightly away from the Chao you selected and do not let it get the Chao Drive. Put it down and the Chao should not absorb it. Once the Chao gets it, it will then bounce further back.
Unlimited Chaos Drives/Animals
This trick is used to get several Chaos Drives or Animals of the same type. Go to the stage selection screen and choose the second mission (collect 100 Rings) with any character. Collect one ring at the start of the level. Collecting more is not necessary; you must have less than 100 Rings. If you are looking for Chao Drives, kill the enemies searching for the desired color. Leave one enemy at the end of the level. Let it hit you. You will lose all of your Rings. Pick up a Ring and kill the enemy. At the end of the level there will be a Ring that reads "Back". When you touch this Ring, you will be back at the start of the level, but you will still have your Chao Drives. Repeat this until your inventory is full of the desired Chaos Drive. Note: The "Back" ring for Knuckles' and Rouge's stages is at the starting point. If you are looking for Animals, go through the level, searching for the desired Animal (avoiding enemies if possible, if you are not also looking for Chaos Drives). Once you find the Animals you want, remember where they are located. Then, let an enemy hit you. This causes you to lose your Rings. Pick up a Ring and kill the enemy. At the end of the level (or starting point for Knuckles and Rouge) there will be a ring that reads "Back". When you touch this ring, you will start the level over, but still have your Animals. Repeat this until your inventory is full of the desired Animal. Note: This trick works best in Knuckles' or Rouge's level.
Make a Chao follow you
If a Chao is in its flowers, pick it up and it will follow you for a while. Also, if you whistle now, it comes to you.
The following is all the animal stats for the Chao Garden.
Big The Cat picture
|Animal||Swim||Fly ||Run ||Power|
|Half fish ||+32||0||+8||+24|
|Skeleton dog ||+8||+8||+32||+16|
Go to the Chao Garden and take any Chao to school. If they are learning drawing, leave your Chao there. When the Chao is done, take it back to the garden and wait until he draws. If he draws Big, it will not be a very good picture but can be recognized as Big The Cat.
Big The Cat appearance
When watching the mini-intermission sequence that appears on before The Biolizard, you can see Big The Cat run by Amy twice. You will only be able to see his feet and the tip of his fishing pole.
Go to the Chao Kindergarten. Then, go between the Black Market and Bulletin Board. On the little picture, you can see Sonic running, saving two lost Chao from nothing.
Go to the Chao Garden as any character. Enter the Kindergarten and go into the principal's office. Look at the statue behind the principal for awhile and you will see it blink.
Extra Chao Karate mode
Note: You either have to complete Hard mode, or all three original modes (Beginner, Intermediate, and Hard). Doing this will unlock the fourth difficulty mode, Super. The Super mode is very hard if your Chao is not strong enough. The order of the Super matches are as follows:
Round 1: Crunchy, a Light Green child Chao with a watermelon on its head
Winning in Chao Karate
Round 2: Wacky, a psycho Light Green child Chao with dragon horns.
Round 3: Crystal, a Gold Hero Chaos Chao
Round 4: Angel, an Aquamarine Dark Chaos Chao
Round 5: Flash, an Onyx Neutral Chaos Chao (very difficult)
Your Chao's power has to be higher than 75. It can now punch and kick harder in Chao Karate. This help can knock Chao(s) off the edge easier.
Give your Chao Animals and Chao Drives until every ability is at level 1. Go with your Chao to the Kindergarten, then go to the Health Center. If your Chao has Power in rank B or higher, continue giving it Chao Drives and Animals until it is at level 99 in everything. If not, try it with another Chao.
In each stage, the contents of a Chao Crate depends on the number of Chao Crates you have already broken: The first crate you break will have a Chao Key. The second will have about three to five assorted animals. The last crate will have a special animal (for example, a Unicorn, Dragon, etc.)
Beach balls for your Chao
Go to the Chao Garden and then go to the Chao Race Lobby. If you want the ball for the Chao Garden, then win the first four challenges in challenge race. To get the ball for the Hero Garden, go to the Dark race and win the first two challenges. To get the ball for the Dark Garden, go to the Hero race and win the first two challenges. When you get them, you must wait for your Chao to play with them. When they do, they will run at the ball and kick it. Note: To get the balls, you must have all three gardens or you will not have the other races. Also, you cannot take the balls to other Gardens.

Win all the Beginner Chao races. You will receive a shovel and water pail for winning the third race in two of them. Go to Chao Kindergarten and press [B] on the black locker, opening the Chao black market. Buy a seed of any kind of tree you wish to grow. Return to your Chao garden. Once there, give your Chao the seed and in about 30 seconds or so a "!" will appear above its head. It will start digging, watering, then dancing. After a couple of visits to the garden you can give your Chao the kind of fruit that falls from the tree. You can grow five to six trees in the garden.
Watch seedling grow
When you first plant a seed, walk away until you get a zoomed in view. You can now watch it grow slowly.
Go to any Chao Garden and go near one of the trees. When the coconut or fruit falls off, you can sell it at the Black Market. It does not sell for much, but is worth something. You will get 10 rings for the coconuts.
If you need a more rings for something on the Black Market, sell a nut. There are three trees that never die and will just keep producing nuts. The nuts from these trees sell for 10 rings each. You can also sell egg shells (only the tops) and any other accessories for your Chao.
Buy a box, bag, pot, or any other expensive item in the Kindergarten. Then, save the Chao data, then re-enter Chao World. Sell the item, and when the "ca-ching" noise ends, reset your Gamecube. When you enter Chao World. you will have both the item and the rings. Note: You have to save the Chao data after you buy the item, but before you sell it. This works best if you sell expensive items, such as the 50,000 ring gray mask.
Go to the Chao Garden. After your Chao has hatched, take the egg and go to the Black Market. Sell your egg shell for the following prices.
Normal egg: 50 rings

Get the Light Dash ability and go to Metal Harbor. Whenever the large rows of rings are ahead of you, use the Light Dash move. This is a very fast and easy way to get rings.
Get something that sells for a lot of rings. If you do not have many, get an old pot and use it for this trick. If you have the time, get a Shiny Egg Shell (recommended). You cannot sell the egg -- you can only sell the shell. Go to the Black Market with the egg and you sell it. then. Exit out of the Black Market and while still in the Kindergarten, hold [B] + [Start] + [X] for about two seconds to reset your game (without saving the Chao data but saving the game data). Since the Chao data did not save, the game believes the egg is still there, while the saved game data records that you sold the egg for a couple thousand rings. You will get the egg and the money back. Repeat this (sell the shell, reset game, then go back to the garden) to end up with lots of rings.
Go to the Black Market and buy an item that costs a decent amount of money. It must be an item that you can resell. Put it in any Chao Garden, then leave the Chao Garden, which saves the game. Reenter the Chao Garden, get the item, then sell it at the Black Market. As soon as you sell it, press the restart button. Repeat this as needed. The item will not disappear, but your rings will keep increasing.
Play Sonic's first level under "Find The Lost Chao". Keep going through the level without getting the Chao until you get 999 rings, which is the maximum number. Then, get the lost Chao .and it will add 999 rings to your game. This is helpful if you want to get a beanie for your Chao later in the game.
On the first level, select the third mission on stage selection screen. Go through the level until you have 999 rings. Then, after you run down the building, do not hit the bouncers and go to the right. Play the Mystic Melody and work your way to the top. Repeat this to get as many rings as needed.
In City Escape level, you can get more than 425 rings. This will give you more rings for the Choa Gardens in just one level. You can also get more than 435 rings if you get all the rings, including the Light Dash rings after you break the iron box after the street boarding part at the very beginning of the stage.
Unlock the racing game (just route 101 or 280). If you got a "D" or "E" rank on the first mission, it would be easier for you to do mission 2 (get at least 100 rings). If you got "A", "B", or "C" rank, just do mission 1 (get at least 200 rings and also get 2 extra lives).
For quick and easy rings, just go to the City Escape level and collect 300 rings every visit.
Use the following trick to get 100 rings in any level, especially Rouge's and Knuckle's stages. Collect as many rings as you can, then go to the back ring. You will start the level over with all of your rings, and will be able to recollect them.
Go to any level as Sonic or Shadow. Choose the third mission (find the lost Chao) and go through the level collecting rings. Do not get the Chao. Go to the end of the level. When you hit the goal ring, you will be taken back to the beginning of the level. You will have all of your rings and all the rings originally on the course will be back. Repeat this until you have as many rings as needed.
Go to the Black Market after you have collected 70 emblems. Buy a Shiny Yellow Egg (7000 rings) and hatch the Chao. His egg shell is worth 1200 rings.
Select the Find The Lost Chao level with any character except for Knuckles and Rouge. Collect rings, but do not find the Chao. Get to the Goal Ring and the "Go Back" message will appear. Jump in the ring and you will start back at the beginning of the stage with all the rings you collected previously. Continue the process until you have 999 rings, then find the Chao to add the rings to your total. Make sure not to get hit or die or you will have to start the process again. This trick is useful when you are trying to save rings to purchase items at the Black Market.
Get a lot of rings in Sonic Advance . Link up the game with Sonic Adventure 2 Battle . You will see a ring item. Click it. It will transfer all the rings from Sonic Advance to Sonic Adventure 2 Battle .
Go into any Chao Garden and get any item found there. Go into the Kindergarten school (not the classroom). Then, go to the Black Market located to your left. Scroll down to "Sell Items". Select that option, then sell the items that you have collected to get 50 rings. Note: It is best to use Knuckles to find the items. The items can also be fruit.
Go to the mission where you battle Shadow with Sonic or Sonic with Shadow. Just collect rings instead of battling the enemy. Note: You must have the Light Speed Dash to get rings quicker. Once you have 999 rings, kill your enemy without dying to get 999 rings and nine lives.
Easy Chao Drives

Repeat to get lots of eggshells.
To create a large stock of fruits to stay in one place, gather all the fruits somewhere such as on the cliff. Get eggshells, pumpkins, and skulls and place them around the fruits. Note: The fruits may still disappear. After awhile, your Chao will adjust to you putting all the fruits in one place and will know where to find them if they are hungry.
Fruit in the water
To keep other Chaos from getting food, put the food in the water. The Chaos cannot swim to the fruit and eat it. If you have multiple food, you can put all of it in the water and give the last one remaining to your Chao. Then, take the other fruit one by one to the Chao(s) that you wish to feed.
Tree without fruit
To get a tree without fruit, put seven or more fruits under it. It will not grow anymore until you take them away.
Heart in Chao Fruit
If you look closely at the flat side of a Chao Fruit, there is a heart there. It is almost the same color as the Chao Fruit, so it can be difficult to see.

Choose the racing with Sonic ,Shadow, etc., then select the all grinding level. At the start of the level, grind until your next to the first pyramid. Jump on the pyramid, charge up in the spinning ball, then move and go straight up the pyramid. When you get about three quarters of the way up, your character will start running straight up in the air. Eventually, he will turn and you can run wherever desired.

Points for cars
In any level with cars, hit them for 20 points.
In each Sonic/Shadow level there are secret points you can get for doing certain things. For example, in the City Escape level, when you get to the ropes you can swing on, use them to get to the elevated ledge. Use the bounce bracelet to get to the invincibility bubble. Once obtained, attack the four flying robots to get down. After you destroy the robot that drops down, jump on the rail and grind. However many points you get depends on how far you get without falling off or without you invincibility running out.
Speed up Time Stop
In the action race in two player mode, there is a way to speed up the Time Stop attacks. When you see your opponent with any of the Time Stop attacks, hold the Spin Dash. This will make the Time Stop attacks pass by faster.

Secret rail in Grind Race
Play the grind race and look for the area has the rail curving up, causing you to land on a floor and hit a checkpoint with two zippers in front. If you take the zippers, you will be on the opposite rail. Go here but do not hit the zippers. When you reach the end of the curved part, jump. If done correctly, you will hit a hidden group of springers. This will take you to a new rail where you can collect rings. Note: When the rail ends you have to time your jump to catch the rail that leads you to the goal.
In two player mode, use a speed up then wait for the little blue light to disappear. Then, get the Super Shoes. The easiest way to do this is to play Shadow's Bridge level. After you fly up the first speed ramp, kill the robot guard then use your speed up. Then, go around the side where the Super Shoes are located.

For example, to do this trick do Sky Rail with Shadow, at the beginning you will be grinding down a rail. Hold "Crouch" until you are about to go off the rail. Release "Crouch" and when the rail is close to ending, press [Jump]. The screen should zoom up close and show Shadow doing backflips.

On the City Escape level, when you are on the snow board and are ready to jump off it using the boosters, brake. Approach the boosters slowly. Instead of jumping over the gate as usual, you will be trapped between the wall and the gate. However, you will be able to jump out.

For Shadow, there is one part of the level where you can keep spiraling up on magnetic tubes. Eventually you will get to the Mystic Melody. The Mystic Melody is a tool every character can get.
