 3 - CD / Disc Stones
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   After registering and acquiring the services of Colt, you can now get your 
monsters! There are two ways of getting your monster, by Slate or Disc Stones. 
Slates makes the use of previous saved game files from the first Monster 
Rancher game. If you're a new trainer, you have no other choice but to get 
your monsters by using Disc Stones. Disc Stones are used to collect data from 
other CD's as a source to create your monster. You can use PS CD's, PS2 CD's, 
PC CD's, SEGA Cd's, Music CD's, DVD's, and any other types of discs as long as 
the CD's are clean or else it may not work and may damage your platform.

   I haven't tried other types of CD's becuase I don't have much time yet so 
the only list of monsters you can see here is from PS CD's. If you have a list 
of monsters that you can get in other types of CD's or an information to 
replace the ????'s, please e-mail me (if you want) and I will give you credit 
(See Contact Info section). Thanks a bunch!

 7 - Hints & Tips
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   This section includes some information that can be helpful to most of the 
people who plays this game.

Saving
   Remember to save often! Save before going to tournaments, errantries, 
expeditions, combining monsters, or using items. You wouldn't know what's 
going to happen so remember to save often just in case something bad happened, 
you can always reset your game.

Sueki Suezo
   Get Sueki Suezo by using the Monster Rancher 1 disc as the disc stone when 
creating a new monster. Why? Sueki Suezo can be a good help especially if you 
need more money. Sueki Suezo has an excellent stats except for speed but he 
only lives for 1 WEEK so raise a Sueki Suezo when there's a tournament.

Increase Lifespan
   Since stress, tiredness and fatigue decreases your monster's lefespan, 
don't let your monster to be tired or stressed or fatigued. Be sure you read 
what Colt says every week if your monster is tired or not. If your monster is 
tired, be sure to let it sleep. If you really need to train for a tournament, 
use items that decreases your monster's stress, tiredness, or fatigue such as 
Nut Oil (See Item List section). This should increase your monster's lifespan 
indirectly.

       Questions:

1. Whenever I try to get a monster from CD's, the girl from the shrine keeps 
saying "This rare monster..." or "Only an authorizied IMa trainer can raise 
this monster". What do I do?

   To unlock a certain monster from a certain CD, first you have to unlock it
 in the game. For example, if you want to get a Durahan from a CD, you to have
 it first in the game by either a slate or by getting it's combining item.


2. Why do Colt keep on saying "It is getting old you should consider 
retirement"?

   That means that your monster is getting weak and is going to die soon. You
 will notice that if you train your monster after she said that, the stats of
 your monster won't go up that much anymore. However, there are 3 things to do
 to your monster:

    - Sell it at the market
    - Keep him in the ranch until it *dies*
    - Freeze him for combining or for 2 player battle


3. Where is the "retirement" option?

   There is no retirement option.


4. I need more money! What will I do?

   You can only have Gold for fighting tournaments. I suggest to you that you
 should fight tournaments often to get some Gold. Try getting a Sueki Suezo.


5. How do I get a Sueki Suezo?
   
   Get Sueki Suezo by using the Monster Rancher 1 disc as the disc stone.
 Sueki Suezo has an excellent stats except for speed and it only lives for one
 week so use him for tournaments only to acquire more Gold. That's right, more
 Gold.


6. What will happen if I run out of money?

   Game Over.


7. How do I upgrade?

   With a high enough Gold and Rank, you will be asked in May 4th (week) if you
 want to upgrade. Say "Yes".
   

8. Why do I need to upgrade my house?

   You will be able to hold more items if you upgrade your house.


9. Why do I need to upgrade my stable?

   Upgrading you stable will allow you to breed bigger or stronger monsters
 like Golems.


10. What is the best monster?

    I have no idea. But for me, the best is having a Durahan because a Durahan
 is very strong and it has a very long life. Not bad.


11. How do I get new techniques for my monster?

   Fight in errantries. Always go there if it says "It seems there is some
 chance to aquire a new technique here".


12. Does the errantry reduces my monster's life span?

   Since tiredness or stress or fatigue reduces your monster's lifespan,
 going to errantries really makes your monster tired so that means it DOES 
 reduces your monster's lifespan.


13. How long does a monster live?

   It depends on the type of monster. For example, a Plant monster usually
 lives longer than Nagas or a Durahan type of monster usually lives longer
 than Dragons.


14. What are some examples of long living monsters?

    - Wracky
    - Durahan
    - Mew
    - Baku
    - Plant
    - Mock
   
   There's a lot more. You have to discover them for yourselves. Again,
 lifespan of your monsters depends on how you take care of them.


15. How do I increase my monster's lifespan?

   Prevent you monster from getting tired, stressed, or having fatigue because
 these things cause your monster to live shorter. Also, give them an item that
 increases your monster's lifespan such as Gold/Silver peaches.


16. How do I get a Silver Peach?

   You must have a 6 year old or more any class monster. At the 2nd week of
 June, your monster will get invited at a tournament called Elder's Cup. Win it
 and you will receive a Silver Peach as your reward.


17. How do I get a Gold Peach?

   Go to the Parepare expedition.


18. What is an expedition?

   Expeditions allow you to get rare items by exploring in different areas.
 Most rare items that is used to get rare monsters can be found here.


19. Where can I find the old sheath?

   Find it behind the pumpkin near the area where you found the Gold peach in
 Parepare expedition.


20. Where can I find the strong glue?

   Find it in the Torles mountian expedition. It appears randomly at the tree
 closest to the base camp.


21. Is there a requirement to join expeditions? And how do I go to
(expedition name here)?

   Yes. First, you need to have at least 300 life points and a fame of more
 than 50. You must be in the ranch during the 1st week of February, June, or
 October. To go to Parepare or Kawrea expedition, you should have a Class C
 monster; as for the Torles expedition, your monster should be Class B.


22. I want to get mock, but the tree never dies. When does it die?

   I think it dies bout 10 years.


23. What's the use of (item here)?

25. How can I raise my rank?

   Fight a lot in tournaments.


26. How am I going to increase the loyalty of my monster above 50?

   Don't spoil them but be sure that they will stay happy. If they did
 something wrong like cheating on a training, scold them and it should make
 their loyalty higher. Also, you can give them some clay dolls.


27. What's the clay dolls for? 

   It boosts your monster's loyalty when you give it to them.


28. How do I get the "Clay Dolls"?

   If your mosnter is happy, he might give you clay dolls.


29. I want to get this (monster name). What Cd should I use?
   Check the CD / Disc Stones section.


30. The monster I'm looking for is not in the CD / Disc Stones section. Why?

   That means I don't have that monster yet or I still don't know what CD to
 use to get that certain monster.


31. Your CD list is wrong.

   If you found out that some information in the CD / Disc Stones section is
 incorrect, please e-mail me and give me the specific information (See Contact
 Info section). I will appreciate your kindness and I will give you credit.


32. What does the letter on a monsters card mean?

   It shows on how rare they are.


33. Does being "good" or being "evil" affect my monster?

   You will either have:
    - Heel Badge
    - Hero Badge

   If you fight in a certain tournament, you might get a Heel or Hero Badge
 depending if your monster is good or bad. You will get a Hero Badge if your
 monster is good and Heel Badge for being bad. Hero Badge makes your monster's
 character better while the other makes it worse. Also, if your monster is
 evil, it may often disobey you and cheat in trinings.
