Typo.

On the SA2:B caring page...

"This way, the Chao can get used to seeing those two character all the time,"

Isn't it characters?

Artwork and Movies is still called Artwork and Stories on the Fan Made Media Page.

http://chao.hippotank.com/fan-media

On a side note, the page needs to be updated, big time.

OMG I'm like the detective for mistakes here. I wonder if anything I (and others) find will actually get fixed.

Anyway, on the main sites "SA:DX" section, some sections can get pretty obvious they were cut/pasted from the SA2:B pages, which gets off putting when things in that game don't happen in SA:DX. I'm also talking about the GC version by the way.

The Caring page:

"On the other hand, if you are very mean to a Chao (either on purpose or by accident), then it will start to despise the character that you used. It is recommended to choose a single Hero character and Dark character to raise your Chao with. This way, the Chao can get used to seeing those two character all the time, making them always feel happy around them. "

In Sonic Adventure DX, alignments do not exist outside of the fruits. This is because the original Sonic Adventure only had Neutral alignments for evolution. When SA2 came along, alignments were introduced. However, they loved the new feature they had of transferring, and realised they needed alignments if SA2:B alignment Chao were transferred over, so they put Hero/Dark Fruit in the shop for this. Alignments do not happen in characters because that didn't exist until SA2, and SA:DX is a port of SA1. Therefore, this statement is completely false.

And the Actions page, oh where do I begin?

"If your Chao likes your character and is nearby, it may bow and say something that sounds like "Hiiiiii~". "

Chao in SA:DX never make noises. They never bow in this way either.

"Your Chao may start bouncing towards your character, and when it reaches the character it will start to rub against them (similar to a cat in real life). The Chao will continue to do this until you pet it, pick it up, feed it, or hit it. If you do not do anything, then it will stop after a while and start to excitedly grin and hop from foot to foot while giggling and waving its arms. "

I have alot of Chao that like me in SA:DX. They never do this.

"If your Chao likes your character a lot (bond > 50), then when you whistle it will run towards the character with an exclamation mark sign above its head. Once it reaches the character, it will do as above. "

Chao never "rub" in SA:DX, even after whistling. End of story.

"It may also move its arm out like it is giving a thumbs up."

I have never seen any Chao in SA:DX do this at all.

"If your Chao severely dislikes your character and is near it, it may hiss and stick its tongue out at the character with a "Baaahh" sound."

I have abused Chao before, none of them have spat their tongues out. Also, like mentioned above, Chao never make as many noises in SA:DX as in SA2:B. That includes "Baaahh"

"If the Chao has been attacked or thrown, it may stand and shiver to show it has been abused; it will also make a "brr" shiver sound as if it is cold. It may also become dizzy and sway its head with spiral eyes."

Chao never make brr sounds, even if they are shivering, which I have seen abused Chao do in SA:DX. But I have never seen a Chao with spiral eyes in the game swaying. Never.

"If you take food away from a Chao while it is eating, it may start to cry."

Never seen ever.

"A very hungry Chao will walk over to food that is on the ground already and start to eat it, even if it is another Chao's leftovers. It may also become dizzy and sway with spiral eyes."

This action does not exist in this game. I would have seen this by now, as I have a few very hungry Chao. They have eaten leftovers without going "spiral-eyed"

Instead of copypasting, how about watching the game? I've had it for nearly an entire year, and I've played with alot of SA:DX-born Chao. I will say right now, the stuff I've mentioned DO NOT HAPPEN. So how about fixing them? Sorry for long post, too :cry:

Have you created any Chao-related media? If so, perhaps you would like to post it in our Artwork and Stories community forum.
Kind of obvious, but the page is pretty much outdated itself anyway.

Chao in SA:DX never make noises. They never bow in this way either.

"It may also move its arm out like it is giving a thumbs up."

I have never seen any Chao in SA:DX do this at all.
Ok, what I said in the post is actually true, for SA:DX-born Chao. It is true I have never seen any Chao hatched in Sonic Adventure DX (GC version btw) do any of the actions I mentioned in this post. But I transferred 3 Monotones today, SA2:B-born, and they all did these actions I bolded.

Yilly - A Dark/Swim MT Yellow
Parta - A Hero/Swim MT Pink
Pulli - A Hero/Swim MT Purple

Yilly, as soon as he came out of the Chao Transporter, in SA:DX, he bowed. He didn't say "Hiiiii", but he definitely bowed.
Parta, after taking 3 steps did a thumbs up action when I passed her.
Pulli did these things too.

Ok, so, these actions can remain, but shouldn't there be some sort of pointer saying something along the lines of "(If the Chao is from Sonic Adventure 2:Battle)?" Because these actions don't exist in SA:DX Chao (I will definitely say that for sure) but SA2:B Chao do, if they're transferred over. So maybe not removing, but clarifying SA2:B actions exist in the Chao that hatch in that game only can perform them.

I also stand by my Alignment deal in that post.

2001-2012 needs to be changed to 2001-2013. Isn't there a way to just increment the number every year automatically? It shouldn't be that hard.

Pinkolol16 wrote: But I have never seen a Chao with spiral eyes in the game swaying. Never.
Actually, I had SADX as a small child, and all I did was abuse my Chao. I remember quite vividly Tutti (or was it Fruity?), one of my monotone oranges, making this after being thrown against the invisible wall in the Mystic Ruins Garden. I also have vague memories of other Chao doing it all the time. I tried to fix it by force-feeding them. I was a dumb kid.

But I have noticed an error on the SA2B Actions page:
"If your Chao is bored, it might spot a tree with an exclamation mark over its head, walk up to it, and hug it, while making a sound like 'Ah!'. It is suggested that the Chao is just showing the tree love so it stays alive for a little longer (if it is a planted tree), but this is unconfirmed."
This action is something I see only from Chao who don't have the watering can. The "Ah!" sound is identical to the sound that they make when they water a tree. I think that it's the action they make instead, kind of like how a Chao will begin to play an instrument if it knows one but will only listen if it doesn't. Also, they don't hug the tree, at least from what I've seen.

I've abused Chao myself and it's never shown the swaying eyes. All it has been is the shivering with no brr sound, as it suggests:

"If the Chao has been attacked or thrown, it may stand and shiver to show it has been abused; it will also make a "brr" shiver sound as if it is cold. It may also become dizzy and sway its head with spiral eyes."

Chao in SA:DX never make noises, not even if they're SA2:B born. Plus I've abused them and they've had strange eating patterns so leftovers are left (4-5 Chao that are full, the rest suffer) and they've never gained swirly eyes. I know what it looks like in SA2:B, but I've never seen it in SA:DX.

I'm just going to assume my post about the alignment in SA:DX not being there was ignored.
I quote myself above.

Oh, I wasn't arguing. I'm sorry if I sounded argumentative. But I do remember the spiral eyes, at least in the earlier US versions. Why it wouldn't be present makes no sense, but neither does Metal Harbor's phoenix, so maybe it's a different version? It is an uncommon animation, soo... Can you detail your research? My Chao were constantly abused by a first/second grader and a toddler (and saved! Poor things) over a long period of time. I only stopped (and got SA2B) when a childhood friend told me what really happened when one of them "turned invisible." Hehe. But if you didn't stay long, then it's possible that it didn't happen.

But as for the sound thing, yes, the only sounds they make are when eating or singing.

In all the Chao type sections such as http://chao.hippotank.com/gallery/swim, there's a mistake in all the Mono-tone charts where the chart would list "Two-tone" instead of "Mono-tone".
