Is 'Spam Petting' a chao bad?

Post by AzureChao » Tue May 31, 2016 10:09 pm

I was wondering if it's bad to 'Spam Pet' or pet a chao repeatedly, with hearts appearing above its head each time. I usually do this with chao when they're newborn to get them to become attached to a certain character, but are there any negatives to doing this to one?
Also, is this ability a bug or was it implemented on purpose?

There are absolutely no negatives to doing this. Each time a heart appears above a chao's head means that it's happiness has gone up by a point. Constant petting means happy Chao. :3
Don't forget to stop and feed 'em every now and then though. ;u;

Not quite sure if this is a bug. It doesn't seem to me like this was done on purpose either, I guess it just sort of happens. XD

Alright, thanks! I do it all the time to get chao connected to certain characters in SA and SA2, and I was curious.

No negatives whatsoever pal, it's actually extremely useful and very effectice for getting your Chao's affection and Hero or Dark affinity up.

And if it is a glitch, I'm glad it's in because it makes the game much more enjoyable and a bit easier to deal with.

No, every time you pet a chao, it's happiness meter goes up, (so if you've accidentally thrown or hit your chao) you can just spam pet it until it's happiness goes back to normal.
(it also affects the hero/neutral/dark evolution depending on who pets it)

On a side note of "Spam petting" if you somehow find a Chao that is in a grey cocoon meaning they were unhappy with their lives and want to die. You can stop this by just spam petting them, if you're quick and go in and out of the Chao Garden to get to them before they go into the cocoon, you can continuously pet them to stop them from dying.

I did that once to stop a Chao from dying and it worked, just gotta be quick.
