I. Intro

Ok people, this is my second FAQ. So far I like writing FAQs and I might 
write a few more for my other favorite characters in DBZ: Budokai. I decided
to write a Teen Gohan FAQ because I believe Gohan in general in underestimated
to a fairly high degree. He can be a very deadly warrior if used correctly,
and I want to help you people in your quest to be the second best Budokai
player ever. Why second best? Because, quite frankly, I'm the best ^_^
I'm kidding, I'm kidding! 

Anyway, enough with the lame jokes, on with the FAQ!

II. Controller Setups and Basic Controls

Here is the Standard Setup the game gives you:

X = Guard
Square = Punch
Triangle = Kick
Circle = Ki (Energy) Blast
R1 = P+K (Unblockable Strike)
R2 = P+G (Grab or Throw Technique)
L1 = Nothing
L2 = Nothing

Now here is my Custom Controller Setup:

X = Guard
Square = Punch
Triangle = Kick
Circle = Ki Blast
R1 = P+K
R2 = P+G
L1 = P+K+G (Causes character to transform)
L2 = P+K+G+E (Taunt-Causes opponent to lose 1 ki gauge)

The only reason I customized it this way is because it's easy to deal with in
Practice Mode and L1 and L2 were free to change.

III. Basic Moves and Combos

Punch- Any combination of only the punch button will give you a series of

Now we'll get into throwing in some directions

P+P+P+>P = A series of punches that ends with a quick but powerful palm 
strike that can come in handy when you're trying to knock your opponent
out of the ring.

P+>P+P = Causes decent damage but lacks in recovery time.

>P+P+P+P+P = A good combo that deals good damage and finishes by smacking
your opponent into the air.

P = A 2-Hit combo that is good for knocking back opponents.

R1 = The same above but Punches and sends the opponent horizontally.

K = A swift combo that's useful for knocking your opponent out of the ring

K+K+>K+K = A very good combo. VERY good. Only one setback- Your guard is
dropped if the last kick misses, but this isn't really that important if your 
opponent is blocking.

>K+K+K+K+K = Yes, 5 kicks in there. It finshes with a powerful kick that
launches your opponent across the ring. Again, very useful for causing

K = A short combo that sends your opponent away; however, it's only
useful in the air. Overall it isn't that great.

                   Takes 1 ki gauge.

Part B - The Ultimate Move

Super Kamehameha - One of the coolest moves in the whole game next to Meteor 
                   Break, Goku's Super Dragon Fist (When placed twice in the 
                   capsule tray), and Burning Attack. You must be a Super 
                   Saiyan 2 to execute this:
                   Pretty simple huh? This attack alone does 1,200 damage.
                   When placed twice on the capsule tray, it does 1,440.
                   Takes up 3 ki gauges. What more do I need to say?

V. Capsules

1.0 Ability Capsules

Super Saiyan - Gives you a 10% increase in attack and gives you an increase
               in speed. Your ki gauge must be at 4 to do this. When done,
               it slowly drains your ki gauge. It's actually way better to be
               a Super Saiyan because of the increase in stats . 
               Takes 1 capsule slot.

Super Saiyan 2 - Gives another 10% increase in attack and a boost in speed.
                This totals to a 20% increase in attack. Your ki gauge must be 
                at 5 to do this. Drains ki faster than Super Saiyan. 
                Takes 1 capsule slot.

Kamehameha - See Section 4

Super Kamehameha - See Section 4

2.0 Physical Capsules

Instant Killquick - A swift combo. Can be executed by pressing >P+P+K+K+E.
                    Takes 1 ki gauge.

High-Speed Hammer - I love these types of attacks. Gohan smashes the opponent
                    into the ground and fires 8 ki blasts at them. When placed
                    twice in the capsule tray, he will fire 16 blasts. 
                    Executed by pressing P+P+K+K+E. Takes 2 ki gauges.

Jackhammer -This is your throw attack. Press G+K (R2). Doesn't use
            any ki and is unblockable, so it's really useful if your 
            opponent keeps trying to guard.

Fierce Ranma - This is awesome. 21 hits if placed once, 41 if twice.  
               Executed with K+K+
