Introduction ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello! Welcome to Xereth, Shorty's, and Xenon's Guide to Mario Super Sluggers Nintendo Wii. This guide is designed to help the least experienced in Mario Super Slugger to the most experienced gamer looking for just a quick bit of information. Looking for a specific item or needing to try and find the one character your needing to fill that roster to beat down Bowser Jr. and his goons. This guide will cover the ins and outs of Mario Super Sluggers to the best of myself and Shorty's knowledge about the game. So let's jump in grab our bats, gloves, and running spikes, and play some ball. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2. Legal Stuff ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The legal stuff. Unfortunally I have to cover this because some people might just think they can borrow and do what they want with anyones work and it does not work that way. So everyone covers this when they create a piece of work. This document is intended for private use within your home only. The document is copyright of Joshua A. and Rachel T. Fenton. Please do not copy and past as your work. Its not nice and I wouldnt do that to anyone else. As of 3:45 pm Indiana time on 08/30/2008 these sites have permission to post this guide.

Thank you for your help in this matter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. Controls ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mario Super Sluggers offers 3 ways of controlling your characters while in play on the field and while in challenge mode. So depending on the way you want to play the game experience will just be a little diffrent. Not by much but a little. I will explain as best can the 3 diffrent control types you can use. Using the Wii Remote upright in play. A Button: is used while throwing pitches for a changeup, and also while in the outfield can be used for a jump to catch a ball in mid air. And to use a special move which will be covered later B Button: is used for an error item while batting. (error item will be covered later) And attacking while coming on to a base and having a close call which will have you chose B or A. Must have the timing right to win an attack to get on base or at home plate. Can be used while being the team batting or the team pitching. A+B Button: Star swing or a Star Pitch. The only way to use a Star swing or a Star Pictch is to have your Star gauge full. The only way to fill your star gauge is to have good and nice moves while either pitching or being the batter at the time. 1 or 2 Button: These buttons are only used while being the batter to perform a bunt. - Button: The minus button is not used while using the Wii Remote in an upright position. + Button: is used to call time if you need to do something or to look at the menu. Home Button: By now if you havent played a Wii or Wii game before this is a no brainer for anyone. Home pulls up the screen to let you know about battery status or to quit the game and go back home or to return to the game you are currently playing. ****************************************************************************** Wii Remote while using the Nunchuk. This is by far in my opinion the best set of controls you can use while playing Mario Super Sluggers. It can be a challenge at times using this method of controls but I find the game play to be far more fun for the challenge. Wii Remote Button Selection A Button: While batting you can advance the runner to the next plate and even steal the base you are on. While pitching you can through a changeup, jump while in the outfield. Also while using the nunchuk do a diving catch and a special move with another character.(Characters have a good afinity with another character will have a musical note. This allows for a special move on the outfield.) B Button: is used to return to base while the batting side if the other team has the ball and you cant continue to the following base so you do not end up out. Also while using the nunchuk you can attack character in a close play or sending an item while batting. A+B Button: Star swing or a Star Pitch. The only way to use a Star swing or a Star Pictch is to have your Star gauge full. The only way to fill your star gauge is to have good and nice moves while either pitching or being the batter at the time. 1 and 2 Buttons: These buttons are not used in this configuration of Wii remote and nunchuk. - button: is not used in these controls like the upright controls do not use the minus button either. + button:is used to call time if you need to do something or to look at the menu. Home Button: By now if you havent played a Wii or Wii game before this is a no brainer for anyone. Home pulls up the screen to let you know about battery status or to quit the game and go back home or to return to the game you are currently playing. Covered this in the upright controls but figured if someone jumped to this point I should cover just in case you werent paying any attention before. Nunchuk Controls C button: is used to reset the batter/pitcher in the original starting postion after you may have moved and do not like where you are at while pitching or hitting. Z Button: is used to send and error item on the field while you are batting and also before using an attack item while you are the batter it is used to bunt the ball. While the pitching team you can pickoff a throw, relay a throw to another character, and switch fielder if need be. Control stick if looking from above is used while playing a baseball game helps you move runners to bases. Second Base /\ Third Base < ( ) > First Base \/ Home Base As You can See if you are looking at the control stick this is how the bases and lined out for you so if you have a runner on second and third and you make a base hit you can go ahead and move third if you want and second by moving the stick in that direction. Challenge Mode The control stick on the nunchuk is also used like you would be playing Super Mario Galaxy. Same as this game just you can jump you can move around the areas while at the diffrent ball fields. ****************************************************************************** Wii Remote Sideways Using the Wii Remote sideways is by far the most confusing way to play Mario Super Sluggers. And the most confusing and hard way to play. Why Nintendo came up with the controls this way I have no Idea. But since they did I will try and make it less confusing for you the player as we muddle through the controls. When using the control sideways in challenge mode you will move with the control pad and hit the 2 button to examine something while exploring the diffrent areas. Batting Controls Using the control pad side to side will move the character at bat. To perform a normal swing you will press 2. For a charge swing you will hold down the 2 button and then release for a swing. You can do a scatter hit while using the control pad if you want. But I havent found it to work very well so its really a waste of time. You will also for a star Swing press 1+2 together to perform while the ball is being thrown at you. For a Bunt you will hold down the 1 button to perform. Using an error item after hitting the ball you can use the control pad to determine where you want the item to go and than press 1. Base Running Controls Press 1 to advance to the next base. Press 2 to retreat back to the previous base you were just on. For a dash tap 1 repeatedly while advancing to the next base. And press 2 repeatedly while retreating back to the previous base. For stealing a base you will want to use the control pad for First, Second, Third, and Home like the control on the Nunchuk. (See diagram above in the previous section for the base system which will be the same for the control pad here using the Wii Remote sideways.) You will press 1 and select base for the runner to move to the following base. For halting a runner Tap 2 for advance and Tap 1 while retreating back to the base you were just on. Pitching Controls Control Pad is just like you would be as the batter moving from left to right. A normal pitch is button 2. For a charged pitch hold down the 2 button than release for the throw. When throwing a normal or charged pitch, once thrown pushing the left or right side of the control pad can give you a curve ball. For a changeup throw hold the up on the control pad. For a Star Pitch hold down 1+2 once your Star Gauge is full. For a pick off throw like if someone is stealing base hit the A button. Fielding Controls Once a batter has hit the ball you will gain control of a character you will use the control pad to move that character toward the ball. For a dash you will tap the 1 button repeatedly. For throwing the ball once caught you will use the control pad and press 2 to throw to the next character. For switching players press A. When needing to jump to catch a fly ball hit the 2 button to catch the ball. To perform an attack you will hit 1+2 buttons together to perform that attack. Each character has a special ability and to perform that ability you will press the 2 button. As I said before this is the hardest set of controls and the most confusing if you are just attempting. After a while I was using these controls I got the hang if it, but I prefer to use the Nunchuk. And really that was the point of the Wii to use the controls to move around with. Not sitting stationary. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 4. Getting Started ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Once you finally get started and you begin the game, my advice learn the basics of playing Mario Super Sluggers. Go to practice and go though the basics of playing baseball in the Mario World. I am not going to cover practice because the game is very self explanatory in the basics of baseball and what to do in the game. I am going to cover the Challenge of the game where you create a roster that is able to beat Bowser Jr. and Bowser and get all the characters you need to make the best team ever. Along the way will cover all the diffrent fields on the Island. So lets jump in and cover Characters and there Baseball stats so you know what they can do and what you want in your teams roster. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5. Stadiums ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This sections covers the Stadiums on the Island that Princess Peach made for all her friends. These stadiums are built for each captain in mind you will meet and join you to help beat Bowser and Bowser Jr. Below you will find a description of each stadium and what you will find there. Stadiums A. Mario Stadium This Stadium looks just like a regular baseball field we are all use to. The stadium is found in the bottom left hand corner of the screen next to the beach. This is where you will want to most likely start your game if you follow this guide. That is up to you the gamer how you chose to start your game, but if follow this guide you will come out just right when you are ready to take on Bowser Jr. There is a shop toward right hand side if you walk south toward the beach. The shop is ran by Blue Pianta and will open once you save him after you get the key from Bowser Jr. B. Peach Ice Garden Peach Ice Garden is not as cold as it sounds. Just the playing field is one big hockey rink that looks like a baseball field with Ice Sickles skating across the outfield. Dont truly know what Peach was thinking about with ice on here field. But thats another story. For the most part its a nice looking garden. Here you will find a beautiful statue of peach with flowing water, a little maze garden shapped like a mushroom from the classic Mario Bros. games. And as with all the stadiums you will find a shop to sell you items. This shop belongs to Toadsworth and will open once he joins your roster. C. Yoshi Park Yoshi Park is an Amusement park built for all the Yoshi's to have alot of fun while visiting the island. Yoshi Park is found on the bottom right hand of the screen. Yoshi park is made up of a bunch of fun rides and is also home to another shop. The only thing is till you help the Yoshi find his brush he will not open up shop for you. Will cover this in challenge mode on what to do. D. Wario City Wario City is a hustle and bustle city just for Wario to enjoy. You find Wario City smack between Yoshi Park and DK Jungle first covered in Fog in your first visit looking for Wario. Goomba is running shop here, and the stadium is built right on the street. So you can imagine how the outfield is with switching lanes. So welcome to the big city players. E. DK Jungle DK Jungle is something right out of a Donkey Kong Country game at its best. Granted its a small area but its a good feel if Nintendo ever decides to make a new Donkey Kong game. Lots of lush jungle here and some vine climbing for all. And King K. Rool is waiting for you to find him as well. So get ready for some fun filled times in the Jungle. The stadium is built for barrels to run the outfielders over and flowers to put them to sleep. So its a fun time. F. Toy Field Toyfield is very misleading if you thing there was going to be a bunch of toys laying around the field. This field has many light up boards in the floor to either score some coin points or spell out homerun. This is more or less a minigame field to score some coins in challenge mode or play with some friends when there over to play. G. Bowser Castle Its Bowser's Castle what can you say. Its hell on a ball field. There are many things to affect your outfielders in the worst way. And getting a homerun is harder than it looks here as well with the high walls. So dont be suprised how hard of a field this is when you play in challenge or even exibition mode. H. Bowser Jr. Playroom Bowser Jr. Playroom looks like a kids playroom with toys on the fence and bedding for the ground. And crazy looking flowers that put you to sleep for couple of seconds when get near them. Its a fun stadium to play in challenge mode or playing in exibition mode for fun. Homeruns are easy hits here to get off and is great if you have a lot of heavy hitters in your team. I. Daisy Cruiser Daisy Cruiser is a ship. Now who wouldnt want to play on a cruise ship. You can only play minigames here in challenge mode. Now in exibition mode you play on the deck of the ship which is really cool. The only thing that would have made this fun would be to have had the ship sailing and the little bit of challenge of the wind if the ship was moving. Oh well cant have it all. J. Luigi's Mansion Luigi's Mansion can only be played at night and its a minigame. Why they didnt let you play on a ballfield I have no idea. Anyway you can play here in exibition mode at night to. So its okay just could have better. Thats my take on the stadiums here in Mario Super Sluggers. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6. Characters ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This section will cover all the Characters you will find through the Challenge mode and what there stats, if they are a captain, and special abilites. And will cover which Characters have chemistry between them to make up good matches out on the field. A Sample of what to look for on this guide is just below so you know what to look for on each character so you can determine what is best for you. Character Name: Luigi Where to find: Starts at the beginning of the Game with Mario. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 60% Fielding: 75% Running: 75% Special Abilities Pitch: Tornado Ball Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Swing: Tornado Swing Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Field: Super Jump this happens if another character near by has good Chemistry which will be shown with a Musical Note in bold Purple or a regular note in black which can be less effective. As you see above this is what you will see as you look through the characters section of this guide. So as you can see by the sample above what you will be looking for and how to gauge the characters you have and what you will be looking for in a team. So good luck creating the best team roster for your game against Bowser and Bowser Jr. 1. Mario Where to Find: Since it is a Mario game he is your First Character. Captain: Yes Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 75% Fielding: 60% Running: 75% Special Abilities Pitch: Fire Ball Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Swing: Fire Swing Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Running: Enlarge Mario is a really Balanced Character to have in your team roster and being a beginning character is really good to have on your team right of the bat of the game. Now later you might find a better Captain than Mario but in the challenge he is on of your main characters you will use through out the game. 2. Luigi Where to find: Starts at the beginning of the Game with Mario. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 60% Fielding: 75% Running: 75% Special Abilities Pitch: Tornado Ball Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Swing: Tornado Swing Requires at least 1 Gauge full of Star Power Field: Super Jump this happens if another character near by has good Chemistry which will be shown with a Musical Note in bold Purple or a regular note in black which can be less effective. Luigi is also a good starting character in your team roster because he is also very balanced out. He is not a Captain in Challenge mode though so for all you Luigi fans that may be out there sorry not this time. Maybe in the next Haunted Mansion. (Hope not but who knows what Nintendo may do.) 3. Princess Peach Where to find: As in all Mario games you must save Princess Peach from Bowser Jr. at Princess Peach's Ice Park. You have to play a game against Bowser Jr. and win to obtain Princess Peach to your roster. Captain: Yes Range of Ability Pitches: 90% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Pitch: Heart Ball at least one Gauge full of Star Power Swing: Heart Swing at least one Gauge full of Star Power Fielding: Quick Throw Princess Peach is probably one of the best outfielders you could have in your arsenal because of her quick throws and she has one of the best pitches you can have. Her Heart Ball is really hard to nail because its very difficult to swing at. She is a captain because of her ability in challenge mode to find special items and characters as well. If you follow the guide below you can get Princess Peach fairly fast. 4. Princess Daisy Where to find: The way to get Daisy is that you will have to move the statue of her because Bowser Jr. changed her into one, you will have to move her statue to raise to water vent up so you can get by Peach Fountain and after defeating Bowser Jr. and having Princess Peach go back to where you placed the Statue of Daisy. You will than talk to Daisy and she jumps off the block the water refills up at the fountain and you cant go by again now it is full. So Daisy jumps back up and ask you to find another statue to put in place of her. (Seriously how can she weigh that much after not being a statue to keep that water vent up. Mario is bigger than her. Oh well at least you cant really say that to Daisy because she would probably deck Mario for that.) Any way change captains from Mario to Daisy go down to where the Toad Statue was. Wait its gone. Talk to the Blue Toad and he tells you he hid that Statue of Toad in a Hedge. Go over to where the statue of Daisy use to be and go to the top right hedge with Princess Peach press A and there you go you found the Statue of Toad. Go back to Princess Daisy and go to the item screen and place the Statue of Toad in the place of Daisy and thats how you get Daisy. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 55% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Pitch: Flower Ball at least one Gauge full of Star Power Swing: Flower Sing at least one Gauge full of Star Power Fielding: Super Dive Princess Daisy is alright at the beginning when you get her in your team roster. But once along in to the game you will find another character that works well for you. Princess Daisy really works will in the outfield and if you have to use her on the mound. Her Flower Ball is like Princess Peach's Heart Ball its hard to see that ball coming to connect with a swing I found even with a Star Swing ability is a little better but can be a waste. Just depends on how good you are on your swings. 5. Baby Mario Where to find: You find Baby Mario after you defeat Bowser Jr. in a game that you are down 0-1 and have to make a come back and score 2 points. Once you win the game Baby Mario joins your roster. This all takes place at Mario Ballpark. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 25% Fielding: 40% Running: 80% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge Baby Mario is all about how fast he runs on the field and base to base. THe only reason I would want to use Baby Mario is if you really just have a fondness for the little guy. And if you want and all baby roster you can do that to. But for the beginning of the game Baby Mario isnt to bad to have just not what your looking for in the end for your best roster. 6.Baby Luigi Where to find: You will find the crying Baby Luigi on the other side of a drawn up bridge crying for help. You have to lower the bridge after you defeat a Magikoopa in a game. The controls for the drawbridge thus follows right, left, left, right, left. Once the bridge is down you will talk to Baby Luigi and he will join your roster. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 10% Fielding: 50% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Super Jump Baby Luigi is not built for swinging a bat at all. Baby Luigi is more suited for an outfield position. How Baby Luigi can have a Super Jump like he does I have no Idea. For the beginning of the game like his brother Baby Mario he is not to bad to have. FOr later though not really. Just depends on what is best for you and your roster. 7.Baby Peach Where to find: You can find Baby Peach in Peach's Ice Garden where the Daisy's Statue once was sitting. Baby Peach will be hiding in one of the bushes there in that area. NOTE you must be Princess Peach the captain to find Baby Peach. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 80% Swings: 15% Fielding: 50% Running: 60% Special Abilities Fielding Quick Throw Baby Peach is a great outfielder for throwing and pitching. As for using Baby Peach in your roster in the beginning isnt so bad like the rest of the baby characters you will have in your roster its a choice if you want to use her at all. So if you like using the baby characters thats up to your prefrence. 8. Baby Daisy Where to find: You find Baby Daisy crying because she lost her rattle near the foutain in Peach Ice Garden. You need to have Wario who can retrieve the rattle out of the water, and Yoshi so you can reach Baby Daisy through the man hole cover. Once you get the rattle back for Baby Daisy she joins the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 55% Swings: 40 % Fielding: 50% Running: 50% Special Abilities Fielding: Super Dive Baby Daisy is just so cute, why wouldnt you put her on your team. She is well balanced in the middle for the most part as you can see. So using her isnt to bad, just a personal decision that I use on my team. 9. Yoshi and Company A. Yoshi Where to find: You find Yoshi being kept under a man hole cover by a Magikoopa. Once you defeat the Magikoopa and Yoshi pops out and thank you for your help and joins the team. Captain: Yes Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 55% Running: 90% Special Abilities Pitches: Rainbow Ball requires at least 1 Star Gauge Swings: Egg Swing requires at least 1 Star Gauge Fielding: Tounge Catch The reason I am going ahead a writing about Yoshi is because he is not generic like the other Yoshi's. Yoshi makes up a good runner after being at bat. So for the most part Yoshi is good there and not to bad in the outfield with hit tounge catch when you can use it. B. Red Yoshi Where to find: You find Red Yoshi at his shop asking if you will find the brush he borrowed the Parakoopa in Wario City. So once you find the brush Red Yoshi will join the party and opens his shop to you. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 40% Fielding: 40% Running: 80% Special Abilities Fielding: Tounge Catch C. Blue Yoshi Where to find: Blue Yoshi is guarding the man hole cover to reach the other side where the stadium is at. Once you have Yoshi in your team Blue Yoshi will join up with the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 15% Fielding: 55% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Tounge Catch D. Yellow Yoshi Where to find: Across from the shop there is a tree in which Yoshi can do a ground pound, Yellow Yoshi will jump out of. Yellow Yoshi will give you a scouting mission before he will join the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 40% Fielding: 55% Running: 70% Special Abilities Fielding: Tounge Catch E. Light Blue Yoshi Where to find: You find Light Blue Yoshi at the answer machine when you are trying to get the track moved so you can calm down Wiggler. Once you do so Light Blue Yoshi will join the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 25% Fielding: 55% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Tounge Catch F. Pink Yoshi Where to find: If anyone knows where you get Pink Yoshi please let me know because I do not remember this. Thanks. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 10% Swings: 25% Fielding: 55% Running: 90% Special Abilities Fielding: Tounge Catch The Yoshi generic crew is more or less just a running group who is stuck in the outfield. There tounge catch is just like Yoshi and they could have done something else for this. But the only Yoshi I can see is a good pick is Pink Yoshi for her running is just as good as Yoshi himself. 10. Toadette Where to find: You find Toadette in Peach's Ice Garden looking for help with the Mushroom maze. You will have to put the mushroom together like the diagram shows you to put in the same way. Once you finish putting the picture together and you have the paths opened up Toadette offers up her help to join you in stopping Bowser Jr. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 30% Fielding: 40% Running: 80% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge Toadette is more suited to being out in the outfield because of her speed. And also once getting a hit she is very quick to get on base. So my experience with Toadette is I use her for making quick catches in the outfield. Shorty is a big Toadette fan and likes using her in all her ball games that she plays. I am not so big on her but thats me. 11. Princess Peach's Toads A. Red Toad Where to find: Red Toad is found in Peach Ice Garden. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 50% Fielding: 75% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge B. Blue Toad Where to find: Blue Toad is found in Peach Ice Garden guarding the Statue of Toad. He gives you a scouting mission before joining the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 55% Fielding: 25% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge C. Green Toad Where to find: Green Toad is found also in Peach Ice Garden but is hiding in a bush in which Mario will have to find. This is around the flower pot plant you find Petey Piranha. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 50% Fielding: 40% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge D. Purple Toad Where to find: Purple Toad again is found in Peach Ice Garden in the same area you will find Green Toad just in a diffrent bush, which you will need Mario to find him. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 55% Fielding: 15% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge E. Yellow Toad Where to find: You find Yellow Toad in a bush near where the statue of Princess Daisy use to be. You will need Mario to have Yellow Toad found. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 55% Fielding: 40% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge The Toads are just a generic way of saying well we couldnt come up with any other characters in my opinion. Also my biggest complaint is that THEE Toad is not a main character to the other Toads. Whe sure got Toadette but not Toad. Common folks they could have done something. Anyway for the most part the Toads are made up in running and good either here or there. So just if you want to use them thats up to you. 12. Toadsworth Where to find: You find Toadsworth at Peach's Ice Garden next to his store and the switch to lower the water at the fountain. You have Toadsworth join you after you save Princess Peach and get Princess Daisy down once you put the Toad Statue there. And Toadsworth shop will be open after Toadsworth joins your roster. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 75% Swings: 30% Fielding: 75% Running: 25% Special Abilities Running: Enlarge Toadsworth is worth having in your team roster when playing a game because he is a great pitcher and outfielder. His batting is ok at times but could be better. Dont expect a homerun from him. He is one I use alot at the beginning half of the game. 13. The Noki's A. Blue Noki Where to find: You find Blue Noki hiding in the sand south of the shop in Mario Stadium. You have to talk to Blue Noki and she will give you a scouting mission before she will join the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 40% Fielding: 40% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Ball Dash B. Red Noki Where to find: You find Red Noki at top of the shell in the middle of Mario Stadium. You have to have the first two Noki's before she will join the team and have the shell open up. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 50% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Ball Dash C. Green Noki Where to find: You find Green Noki in the Beach on the opposite side you found Blue Noki next to the palm tree. Green Noki will give you a scouting mission before she will join the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 50% Fielding: 35% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Ball Dash The three Noki's are a good start at the beginning of the game to use for when you need one or all three. But as soon as you are more into the game there is no point in using the Noki's. 14. Pianta's A. Blue Pianta Where to find: is found behind a locked door at his shop. Once you have the key once beating Bowser Jr. at Mario Stadium you can unlock the door and Blue Pianta thanks you by joining the team and opening his shop to you. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 50% Fielding: 40% Running: 15% Special Abilities Fielding: Laser Beam B. Red Pianta Where to find: is found hiding in a barrel in Mario Stadium. You will need to use DK to break the barrel open so that Red Pianta will come out the barrel. You will have a scouting mission before Red Pianta will join the team. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 10% Special Abilities Fielding: Laser Beam C. Yellow Pianta Where to find: You find Yellow Pianta up in a Palm Tree in Mario Stadium as well. (Seriously how could he be hiding up there. He is so big.) Anyway after finding Yellow Pianta with Yoshi you will have a scouting mission before he will join the team. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 10% Special Ability Fielding: Laser Beam The Pianta's are all strength as batters but lack that in running off home base and is very slow. There laser beam is good out on the field but is lacking pitching the ball. So just very's in what you need in a team. 15. Shy Guy and his Guy's A. Shy Guy Where to find: Shy Guy is found in Yoshi Park needing help with the infested ferris wheel full of Piranha plants. Once you complete the minigame and killing off the piranha plants will Shy Guy join. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 50% Fielding: 75% Running: 40% Special Ability Fielding: Super Dive B. Blue Shy Guy Where to find: You find Blue Shy Guy hiding back and forth in a chopped down tree trunk. You have to use Princess Peach and her power for Blue Shy Guy to come out and give you a scouting mission. Once you win the scouting mission than Blue Shy Guy will join the team. Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Runnings: 40% Special Ability Fielding: Super Dive C. Yellow Shy Guy Where to find: is found guarding a chest off from the stadium that can be reached from a warp pipe with Mario. Yellow Shy Guy will challenge you to a scouting mission before he will join the team. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Ability Fielding: Super Dive D. Green Shy Guy Where to find: Green Shy Guy will join you along with Shy Guy after you win the minigame at the Ferris Wheel. Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 50% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Ability Fielding: Super Dive E. Gray Shy Guy Where to find: Gray Shy Guy is found the exact same way you found Blue Shy Guy, and Gray Shy Guy will give you a scouting mission than will join the team once you win. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 80% Running: 40% Special Ability Fielding: Super Dive 16. Birdo Where to find: You find Birdo in trouble and stuck on a ledge in Yoshi Park in need of help because Bowser Jr. is up to no good and Birdo cant get down till you stop him. So defeat Bowser Jr. in his challenge and Bowser Jr. runs off looking for another stadium. The rainbow bridge returns and Birdo thanks you by joining your teams roster. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 80% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Pitches: Suction Ball requires at least one Gauge full of Star Power Swings: Cannon Swing requires at least one Gauge full of Star Power Fielding: Suction Catch Birdo is one of those characters that about even out in ability and is good to have in your teams arsenal when you want to use her. She is good like Green Yoshi and though she is not a captain I would use her quite a bit in my games. 17. Petey Pirahna Where to find: You find Petey Pirahna at Peach's Ice Garden in a flower pot with no flowers. The flower pot is to the left of Peach Fountain. NOTE you must be Captain Princess Peach to get Petey Pirahna. You have to play Petey Pirahna in a scouting game and beat him to have him join your teams roster. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 100% Fielding: 50% Running: 15% Special Abilities Fielding: Pirahna Catch Petey Pirahna is a great batter with the strength he has. He is a little slow in swinging but when he connects your bound to get a good home run. As far as pitching and outfielding he is ok. Just slow for the most part so dont expect Petey Pirahna to be a fast sprinter like some of the other characters you have in your team roster. 18. Wiggler Where to find: You find Wiggler mad and I mean seeing red mad at Yoshi Park. You have to help Light Blue Yoshi by inputting correct answers to move the coasters tracks to bring Wiggler to his flower. Once you answer all the questions correctly and Wiggler is at his flower and calms down you will Play Wiggler in a scouting mission for him to join you. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 20% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Anger Dive Wiggler is a great batter and good on the fly in running. And is so-so out on the field. I really havent had much time to play with Wiggler but for what I have used him he isnt to bad but if Wiggler was more even out he would be a great player in your team. 19. Monty Mole Where to find: You find Monty Mole at Mario Stadium snoozing on the beach covered in sand. He really looks like a Pianta at first. Till you use Princess Peach to wake him up from his nap. He complains at first but understands you cause to beat Bowser Jr. Play Monty Mole in a scouting mission. You must win for Monty to join. Once beating Monty he joins your team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 50% Running: 75% Special Abilities Running: Burrow Monty is another one of those characters that you can use if you really feal like it. Monty has good abilities in running and somewhat in the fielding area. So its another one of those characters that is merely up to you if you want to use. 20. Blooper Where to find: You find Blooper at the top edge of the dock in Mario Stadium from where the warp pipe is and where you saved Baby Luigi. You have to Princess Peach to find Blooper and for him to come out of the water. Blooper challenges you to a scouting mission before he will join your team roster. Beat Blooper and he joins the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 40% Fielding: 50% Running: 60% Special Abilities: Running: Ink Dive Blooper is a leveled character either just meeting the half way mark or a little under. I dont mind blooper out on the field because of the fact of his range. As far as batting I wish it was better. I use blooper in most of my games with friends. So it is just a matter of where you want the character. 21. Donky Kong Where to find: You find Donky Kong in DK Jungle needing help to stop Bowser Jr. from taking the park and stadium for himself. Only after you help Dixie Kong out by getting the first Tablet piece and Dixie joining you will Donky Kong give you a scouting mission. Captain: Yes Range of Ability Pitches: 60% Swings: 90% Fielding: 25% Running: 15% Special Abilities Pitches: Barrel Ball requires at least 1 Star Gauge full to use. Swings: Barrel Swing requires at least 1 Stat Gauge full to use. Fielding: Clamber Donky is all raw power that you will use at bat. Hit pitch is not to bad when up on the pitching mound. My use has been for after my first three batters have made base, DK is there to hopefully get off a homerun and score 4 runs. Doesnt always happen but DK is good in my roster for that place. So it really depends on what you are looking out of DK in your team. 22. Diddy Kong Where to find: You find Diddy Kong guarding the area where the tablet will be placed once you have all three pieces. The way you get Diddy Kong is that once the stone bridge raises and you find yourself in front of Bowser Jr. trying to kidnap Tiny Kong, thats when Diddy Kong offers to join your team. Captain: NO Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Running: 60% Special Abilities Pitches: Banana Ball requires at least 1 Star Gauge full to use. Swings: Banana Swing requires at least 1 Star Gauge full to use. Fielding: Clamber Diddy Kong is more of a great outfielder than a pitcher. The only time I would use Diddy in a pitching situation is if my pitchers were all tired and I need a quick replacment. So putting Diddy in the back field is a great use of his clamber to catch balls close to the fence. 23. Funky Kong Where to find: You find Funky Kong being chased down by Fire Bro looking to keep Funky Kong from getting a hold of another tablet piece. So following Fire Bro and Funky Kong you will have to defeat Fire Bro before FUnky Kong will join. Once he does his Shop opens up to you in DK Jungle as well. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 60% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Clamber Funky Kong is more or less just a minor outfielder, but more suited to be up at bat for hitting those homerun scores. Other that what I told you I dont really use Funky Kong other than when I am play exibition if I dont get to my other characters first. 24. Tiny Kong Where to find: You find Tiny Kong needing to be saved from Bowser Jr. So once you beat Bowser Jr. and he runs off Tiny Kong joins your team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 50% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Fielding: Clamber Tiny Kong I really havent use but once, and I stuck her in the outfield because of her clamber. So if anyone thinks better of her let me know. I will put in your recommendation here. Thanks. 25. Baby DK Where to find: You find Baby DK up in a tree being found by Yoshi off the beaten path where only DK can reach. So once you complete the scouting mission Baby DK joins you as the last Baby character in the game. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 55% Fielding: 80% Running: 40% Special Abilities Fielding: Clamber Baby DK is one of those characters I would use if you wanted to use all the baby characters. Granted I will say this Baby DK has great fielding I just dont use Baby DK for much other than that. 26. Dixie Kong Where to find: You find Dixie Kong near the vine after crossing with the barrel cannon. Dixie Kong will only join you after you go back across to the exit sign and get the first tablet piece and talk to her. Captain: NO Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 25% Fielding: 80% Running: 75% Special Abilities Fielding: Clamber Dixie Kong is a great outfielder to have on your team. And her clamber ability to climb the wall is really good to use to catch them almost homeruns from the other team. 27. King K. Rool Where to find: Once you defeat all the Kritter's and the two statues have risen out of the pond, and the waterfall has stopped to reveal King K. Rool will than you be able to have a scouting mission for him to join the team. You do this in DK Jungle. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 55% Swings: 100% Fielding: 10% Running: 0% Special Abilities Fielding: Laser Beam King K. Rool is made of power, at 100% swing you could not have him on your team. NOTE though his running says 0% doesnt mean he cant run just that he is very slow runner. Either first base or third base is a good place for King K. Rool to be. 28. Kritter Where to find: You get Kritter and the other Kritters after you have beaten King K. Rool in his scouting match that they join like Rool does. Captains: No none of the Kritters can be captain. Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 75% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Keeper Catch A. Blue Kritter Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 55% Fielding: 75% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Keeper Catch B. Red Kritter Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 80% Fielding: 75% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Keeper Catch C. Brown Kritter Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 75% Fielding: 75% Running: 40% Special Abilities Fielding: Keeper Catcher The Kritters are made up in the areas of swinging and being out in the outfield. Havent really used them that much other than in exibition mode while playing with friends because of there range in outfield and they have some power in there swings. 29. Paragoomba Where to find: You find Paragoomba in the third palm tree in Wario City hiding from Bowser Jr. You will need Yoshi to do a ground pound for Paragoomba to pop out so that you can challenge paragoomba to a scouting match. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 55% Swings: 25% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Fielding: Super Jump Paragoomba having super jump isnt to bad when he is out in the outfield where he excells at real well. Other than that for the good outfielding Paragoomba is alright to have in the team here or there. 30. Goomba Where to find: You find Goomba in Wario City running the shop, the only thing is Goomba needs your help to get the neon lights working before he will join you. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 55% Swings: 25% Fielding: 55% Running: 40% Special Abilities Fielding: Ball Dash Goomba is not like his couterpar Paragoomba with good outfielding. I would only use goomba only if you really had to in a game. Other than that I wouldnt really waste your time, unless your a goomba fan just leave them be. 31. King Boo Where to find: King Boo is not really found but appears to you after you beat Bowser Jr. and have Boo on your team. King Boo joins you after finding out that you have a Boo on your team. Captain: No Range of ability Pitches: 75% Swings: 75% Fielding: 25% Running: 40% Special Abilities Running: Teleport King Boo is a powerhouse in a way with hit batting and pitching. Not so in the outfield. I really dont know what his Teleport does because I have never had the chance to use it in a game yet. 32. Boo Where to find: Boo is found in Wario City hiding inside a crate which DK will have to break after Wario moves the blue metal box out of the way. Boo gives you a scouting mission before he will join your team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 90% Swings: 25% Fielding: 25% Running: 50% Special Abilites Running: Teleport Boo is probably one of the best pitchers you can have on any team if any you will ever have. So I think Boo is good to have on any team in play as an outfielder or pitcher. 33. Paratroopa Where to find: Paratroopa joins you after you have beat Yellow Magikoopa in a battle mission at the lighthouse in Wario City. Once this has taken place Paratroopa joins the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Fielding: Super Jump A. Green Paratroopa Where to find: Truth be told I really do not remember where you find Green Paratroopa in Wario City. And for the moment I dont plan on another play through. So if someone can let me know I will put the description here. Thanks. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 50% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Fielding: Super Jump The Paratroopa's are very much suited to the outfield and really thats the best place for them to be and need to be. So as far as batting is going they are mediocre at best. 34. Koopa Where to find: You find koopa in a wanted poster in Wario City hiding from Bowser Jr. You will need to be Princess Peach and use her ability for Koopa to come out of the poster. Koopa will give you a scouting mission before he joins the team. Captain: No Range Of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 55% Fielding: 40% Running: 55% Special Abilities Running: Spin Attack Koopa is a so-so character in the roster to use. His spin attack is cool to use. Other than that meh cant say much else for koopa. 35. Red Koopa Where to find: is found in Wario City needing help to fix the electric circuts to get the electricity going again for the rest of the city. After you get the circut fixed Red Koopa joins the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 55% Fielding: 25% Running: 55% Special Ability Running: Spin Attack Red Koopa is just like his counterpart Koopa, very so-so. Other than for his spin attack there isnt much here to be investing. 36. Wario Where to find: You find Wario stuck in fog tricked by Bowser Jr. thinking a chest was on top of the building. So Wario cant get down from the roof because the power is out and the fog there. The way you get Wario down is you will have to have DK from DK Jungle to reach Wario since DK is the only character who can climb vines. Once you save Wario he joins the team as a captain. Captain: Yes Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 75% Fielding: 25% Running: 40% Special Abilities Pitches: Phony Ball requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Swings: Phony Swing requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Fielding: Laser Beam Wario is a good power hitter and his Phony Swing is really good when you hit it off because of it being a bomb-omb. I have used Wario for a good bit of the last of the game against Bowser Jr. and Bowser. 37. Waluigi Where to find: You find Waluigi on top of a building that you will have to reach with Yoshi. Wario confronts Waluigi about trying to take one of his chest. So Waluigi gives you a scouting mission. Once you beat him he joins up with the team. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 75% Swings: 40% Fielding: 75% Running: 50% Special Abilities Pitches: Liar Ball requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Swings: Liar Swing requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Fielding: Quick Throw Waluigi is a good chracter in pitching an outfielding from what his stat shows above. I refuse to play with him because I hate him so I really cant say if he is great in a team or not. I never really used him in Mario Party games either, unless I was playing against him. Read my thoughts on Waluigi in challenge mode in Wario City. 38. Bowser Where to find: Once you beat Bowser the second time he joins the team roster. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 100% Fielding: 25% Running: 25% Special Abilities Pitches: Killer Ball requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Swings: Breath Swing requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Running: Spin Attack Once you get Bowser its hard to not want to use him after playing against him. His specials are cool and not having him in your team games is nuts not to do. Unless you really just hate Bowser. 39. Bowser Jr. Where to find: Joins the team with Bowser after you beat Bowser for the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 75% Special Abilities Pitches: Graffiti Ball requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Swings: Graffiti Swing requires at least 1 full Star Gauge Running: Spin Attack Bowser Jr. is just like his old man. All trouble. But once he joins the team roster he is great player to play with on the team. His specials are real cool and hard to hit when on the pitching mound. We know this after playing him 3 times. So Bowser Jr. is a good asset to any team. 40. The Bros. A. Hammer Bro Where to find: Hammer Bro joins the team roster just like everyone from Bowser's team does once you beat him the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 55% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Hammer Throw B. Fire Bro Where to find: Like Hammer Bro before joins once you defeat Bowser the second time around. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 75% Fielding: 55% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Hammer Throw C. Boomerang Bro Where to find: like the last two Bros. You have them join after beating Bowser for a second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 75% Fielding: 50% Running: 25% Special Abilities Fielding: Hammer Throw Ok time for a little complaining on my part. All three are great in the batters box and can be evened out in pitching or fielding. Just depends on who you want to use. My complaint for the three is Hammer Bro having a Hammer Throw works. The other two could have had an ability for say Fire Bro throwing fire, and Boomerang Bro throwing a Boomerang throw. Hello takes a whole lot of thought for that one. Oh well anyway other than my rant there not to bad on a team. Just could be that much better. 41. Dry Bones and the Boneheads A. Dry Bones Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowser the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 40% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 50% Special Abilities Running: Scatter Dive B. Green Dry Bones Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowser the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 55% Special Abilities Running: Scatter Dive C. Dark Bones Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowser the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 50% Swings: 75% Fielding: 40% Running: 50% Special Abilities Running: Scatter Dive D. Blue Dry Bones Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowser the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 25% Swings: 75% Fielding: 50% Running: 50% Special Abilities Running: Scatter Dive Well the Dry Bones characters are all power in there batting swings and just vary every where else. As far as I am concerned Dark Bones and Dry Bones works out real well but Green and Bue are just there for filler spots. 42. Magikoopa and the Magic Crew A. Magikoopa Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowser the second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 80% Swings: 10% Fielding: 80% Running: 10% Special Abilities Fielding: Magical Catch B. Red Magikoopa Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowserthe second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 80% Swings: 25% Fielding: 80% Running: 0% Special Abilities Fielding: Magical Catch C. Green Magikoopa Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowserthe second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 70% Swings: 10% Fielding: 80% Running: 10% Special Abilities Fielding: Magical Catch D. Yellow Magikoopa Where to find: Joins the team after you beat Bowserthe second time. Captain: No Range of Ability Pitches: 70% Swings: 25% Fielding: 80% Running: 10% Special Abilities Fielding: Magical Catch The Magikoopas are all outfielding or pitching and slow as heck when they hit the ball. Other than for that there Magical Catch sucks when you are on the other end of it when they catch those ball just barely going by they manage to catch them. So as long as they are on your team all is good. The End finally. All 71 characters listed above and where you find them was a challenge but a fun one. Thanks for checking the section out for the help you need. Bowser and his crew after beating them the second time and join will have a star by them when they join and who ever you use against him and win will as well have a star. I have read in reviews and on the blogs of gamefaqs how much characters are better with having a star status. But I really cant tell any diffrence. But that is for another day and time. Thanks as always and if any questions send an email. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7.

Your guide is Lakuta and he is here to help you through your journey getting the best team together and beat Bowser Jr. and send him back where he came from. So leaving the entrance you will start out and go Mario Stadium and began the journey. Mario Stadium You will begin by looking around for new characters to join your teams roster. You see Red Noki on top of the shell in the middle of the area dancing about. When you talk to her she says the only way she will join your team if you have other Noki's joined with you. So begin looking around on the beach for other Noki's. Blue Noki will be at the bottom near of the beach next to a beach umbrella kinda stuck in the sand. Go up to her with Mario and talk to her. She says she will join you only if you can beat her at a scouting mission. NOTE!!! I am not going to cover the scouting missions because it is up to you how your going to play inside the game. So once you beat Blue Noki in the scouting mission she will join your roster. After Blue Noki has joined you start looking for green Noki on the beach as well. You will notice some writing in the sand you should check this out on the way to looking for Green Noki. The scribbling in the sand is a clue you will need later. It is right, left, left, right, left. You will need to remember this for later. Also heading toward the other beach umbrella you see a sleeping Pianta. Right now there is no way of waking him up from his sandy sleep so will come back later when we can wake him up. Once you reach the beach umbrella you find Green Noki here hiding from Bowser Jr. and his minions. Talk to Green Noki and she tells you the there is a baby crying on the other side of where the bridge is raised. Green Noki see's that you have Blue Noki in your group and says she will join you if you can win at the scouting mission set for you. Beat Green Noki and she joins your roster. Time to look for the next Noki. If you remember right Red Noki as jumping on top of the shell in the middle of the area paths. Walk up to Red Noki and talk to her she see's that Green Noki and Blue NOki has joined you she decides to help you take on Bowser Jr. Red Noki also gives you 10 coins when the shell opens up so you can walk to the lever to lower the bridge to save Baby Luigi. Once you start walking to the lever Magikoopa apears to stop you from lowering the bridge. You have to beat Magikoopa in the challenge to use the lever and lower the bridge. Once you have beaten Magikoopa you now use the lever. Do you remember what to do to lower the bridge? If not no problem here again is the way to move the lever in the right way. It is right, left, left, right, left and there you go. Now head over to Baby Luigi and talk to him. Baby Luigi and baby goo tells you Baby Mario is in the stadium and is in trouble and in need of some saving by Mario. You can do one or two things here. Go ahead and take on Bowser Jr. over at the stadium or go in the pipe. I will cover going to the pipe first than taking on the Bowser Jr. challenge. Go through the pipe takes you to a small island on the other side of the stadium. Once poping out the pipe Dry Bones stops you and challenges you to a challenge game. Once you beat Dry Bones you have a chest there you can check out. The only thing is you need Wario a captain to check out the chest and get whats inside. Will cover Wario and come back once we have him and get whats in the chest. So return through the warp pipe and go to the stadium. Once you get to the stadium Bowser Jr. is there waiting for you to take you on in a challenge. Your down 1-0 in the last inning you have to come back and score 2 to win. Once you beat Bowser Jr. you have saved Baby Mario and Bowser Jr. while fleeing drops a key. Baby Mario joins you once saved and take the key to the locked door at the shop. Go to the shop and talk to the door someone is on the other side needing the door unlocked and saved. Select the key put it in the slot and turn. The doors open and Blue Pianta comes out thanking you for saving him. In return for saving Blue Pianta he joins your roster and opens his shop for you to buy things. Thus ends Mario Stadium for now. Leave the stadium and you will head to the entrance. Once getting to the entrance save your progress for now and get ready to head to the next stadium in our journey. **************************************************************************** Peach's Ice Garden Were on to save Princess Peach like Mario knows best because thats what Mario does just this time in baseball. Once you arrive at Peach's not so Ice Garden. (Just the baseball field is made of ice) Head right along the path till you come to a Toad looking at a statue of Daisy. The Toad tells you Bowser Jr. and his goons are here and turned Daisy into a statue and the Toad says he will stand guard here and to look for Toadette. Head back the way you came from. You can go up but there is no point because the water has flooded the paths around the fountain. So go left till you run into Toadette. Toadette is glad to see you and in need of your help because one of Bowser Jr. goons has mest up the maze path made to look like a mushroom. So follow the diagram up above to put the mushroom the right way that it needs to be. Once you have the mushroom right paths appear for you to follow. Taking the left path will take you to another Toad who is trying to hide next to a Toad statue. There is nothing to do there so head back and walk north toward a wide open area with bushes and a pot plant with no flowers and a path to the right to head toward the fountain. And another path leading north still some more. We no the fountain is flooded so will head north. Once trying to go that way another Dry Bones stops you in your path. This Dry Bones challenges you to a baseball match and the only way to continue on your path is to win. Once you win the Dry Bones runs off and your path is clear to continue. Walk along till you come across a shop with Toadsworth standing out front. Toadsworth tells you that you can lower the water by putting something heavy here so you can get by the fountain area to the stadiums entrance. Well we know of two heavy objects we have come across so far, a Toad statue, and Princess Daisy Statue. Head back the way you have came and ignore going to the Toad Statue because this will not work because the Toad there is guarding it and wont let you use this statue. Go on toward the Daisy Statue and speak to the Toad next to it and talk with him. The Toad understands the situation and to be careful not to drop Princess Daisy. (You cannot break the Princess Daisy statue) After recieving the statue go back to Toadsworth and select from the items list the Princess Daisy Statue and put in place on the pedestal. Once doing so the water drains from the fountain returning to normal so you can get by to the entrance of the stadium. Leaving Toadsworth heading right from the pot plant. (Note I know that saying pot plant and in todays minds think of pot, but I am refering only to what is there and it is a pot plant with no flowers. So this is only stating fact. So please dont be upset.) Head for the fountain go north to the stadium. And look who we find Princess Peach and Bowser Jr. trying to take over this stadium. So you need to defeat Bowser Jr. in another challenge like you did at Mario Stadium this time just diffrent. Once you beat Bowser Jr. Princess Peach thanks you for saving her and her area of the island. Princess Peach joins Mario as another captain for you team and you can now select her to change places with Mario and use her to scout out new team members. And guess what Princess Daisy is no longer a statue. So leave where your at and go back the way you came and speak to Princess Daisy. Princess Daisy is glad not to be a Statue anymore. She jumps down and the water raises again at the fountain. So Princess Daisy says she will stay here till you can find a replacment for her. If you remember the Toad statue from earlier you are on the right track. Head south toward the little maze to find the statue and speak to the Toad guarding it. Once getting there you realize the statue is gone and the Toad is stilling standing there and now in the statues place is a man hole cover. Talk to the Toad and he tells you he hid the statue in one of the bushes in the area where the Princess Daisy Statue once sat. So leave from there walk to the area and begin searching each bush for the statue. You will find the statue on the right top hand side. Go back to Princess Daisy chose the Toad statue from your items list and place it there after Daisy jumps down. Princess Daisy has now joined your teams roster. Also Toadsworth has now opened his shop and joined your team as well. Switch captains from Mario to Princess Peach. You will want to go visit the empty flower pot in the middle of the area before the maze. Take Princess Peach and have her take a look. She adds her love to make something grow. Its Petey Pirahna plant thats taking residence in the flower pot. Petey Pirahna says he will join you only if you can win at his scouting mission. So play the scouting mission and you now have Petey Pirahna in your party. Once done with Petey Pirahna walk back to the area the Toad statue once sat at. The man hole cover you cant access at this time with out Captain Yoshi joining you. So will leave this be till later once we have Yoshi joined up in our team. Head over to the area the Daisy statue was once at and check out the bush on the top left side. Baby Peach jumps out crying. She is glad that Bowser Jr. isnt around now and will be glad to join up. You now have Baby Peach in your team roster. Its now time to leave Peach's Ice Garden for now. Will come back later with some new captains. Once you leave be sure to save your work so far. Next stadium we are going to visit is Yoshi Park. You can either at this point continue to use Princess Peach as the captain or go back to Mario. My suggestion is to go back to Mario till we get through some of Yoshi Park. **************************************************************************** Back To Mario Stadium round 2 Before we head to Yoshi Park we should pick up two more team members before going on with this journey. Switch to Captain Princess Peach and walk down to the beach. Remember the outline that looked like a Pianta. Well its not use Princess Peach's ability to find people and Monty Mole pops up complaining about his nap being interupted. You tell him about Bowser Jr. and whats taking place. So Monty Mole gives you a scouting mission. You need a fast pitches to beat Monty Mole. Either Princess Peach or Baby Peach will work. Get three fast throws in a row and you win. Monty Mole joins the team roster. Walk from there to the dock. Dont go to the warp pipe. Go to the top edge of the dock with Princess Peach and do the same thing before like you did with Monty Mole. Blooper jumps out of the water. You have another scouting mission for before Blooper will join up. Real easy get two outs in with one hit from the batter. Blooper hits toward second base you get the runner out and throw to first and get Blooper out. Winning this scouting mission Blooper joins the team roster. Time to leave Mario Stadium and head for Yoshi Park. **************************************************************************** Yoshi Park Yoshi Park is an amusment park built to have loads of un while on the island playing baseball. But you can tell Bowser Jr. has been here as well lookin to take over this stadium and park as well. You first find the Shy Guy's having a problem with the Ferris Wheel. This is your first minigame in challenge mode. Pirahna's have taken over the Ferris Wheel and the Shy Guy's need your help by throwing baseballs at the Pirahna plants. Beware that if you give the Pirahna plants enough time to throw a ball at you its game over and you will have to replay the minigame again. There are three stages to this. At first it starts at slow. Once you get rid of some of the plant of the Ferris Wheel the speed picks up for the second round. Keep doing the same thing you have been doing. And make sure to keep reloading your balls when you get a chance here. After you get through the second round and more of the plant is gone it gets much faster. Keep doing the same thing and make sure to keep reloading and you will be done fairly quick. The plant is gone for good, the Shy Guy's thank you for your help getting the Ferris Wheel going again. Shy Guy will join your team to beat Bowser Jr. now. Its time to begin your search for Yoshi. You will see a blue Yoshi standing on another man hole cover. Walk up to the Blue Yoshi and speak to him. He tells you Yoshi has went off to take on Bowser Jr. for trying to take the park and stadium for himself. Go look for the Warp Pipe to take you to another area of the park to look for Yoshi. The Warp Pipe is up in the right hand corner of the screen. Taking the Warp Pipe to the other side finds you next to the shop in Yoshi Park. The only problem is its not open for business. The Yoshi there is looking for his brush that was taken from him. So for now will continue the look for Yoshi. Walk south from there till you come across Magikoopa standing on a man hole cover. Magikoopa isnt about to let you continue on. So its time for another challenge from Magikoopa. This is a fairly easy challenge to win at. So beat Magikoopa and he runs off away from you leaving the man hole cover open to you. Than Yoshi pops out glad that you finally got rid of Magikoopa because he couldnt get out to do anything. Yoshi decides to help Mario and Princess Peach by beating Bowser Jr. You now have Yoshi a captain in your roster who can go through man hole covers to reach another area. So switch captains from Mario to Yoshi to continue on. Head to the man hole cover that you found Yoshi coming from and take that to the other side here you find Blue Yoshi in need of help. Wiggler is on a mad rampage through the park on the roller coaster. The only way to get Wiggler to calm down is to move the track section and get Wiggler back to his flower ASAP. So your going to go up to the Calculator device and answer questions by putting in a number for the right answer. If you get it wrong you can start over again. But I will give you the following questions and the right answers that you go with. These questions are what I have come across through playing through up to Yoshi park three times. I had to go back and well you when you start over it sucks. So anyway here are the questions and answers. How Many Stars fill the Star Gauge? 5 If you have a Koopa, Paratrooa, Paragoomba, and Boo how many wings do you have? 4 How many tentacles does Blooper have? 10 How many Gondolas are on the Ferris Wheel? 6 Whats the point diffrence in a Mercy baseball game? 10 Lakitu has..... 3. Glasses If there are 3 batters on base and the batter hits a homerun how many runs are scored? 4 How many younger brothers does Mario have? 1 Whats the total number of baseball players on both teams? 18 What is on Wigglers head? 2. A Flower As I said before this is the questions that I have come across through my play throughs up to this point. If anyone happens to have another set of questions please email me so I can update this and put them in. Thank you. Anyway after completing this the track will move and Wiggler comes down and stops on his flower calming down. Blue Yoshi also wants to join up with you so you have a new team member on the roster. Now go up to Wiggler and speak with him. He gets mad at first thinking you are helping Bowser Jr. but with little explanation on your part Wiggler offers up his help only if you can beat him at a scouting match. So as in all scouting matches you must win before Wiggler will join. Win the match and Wiggler is now part of your team roster. Go ahead and stay as Captain Yoshi because you are going to end up still going through a couple of man hole covers. Instead of having to go back the way you came. Since the track has moved you can now go back to the main area of the park. But before we do that lets go back and get Yellow Yoshi out of the tree near the shop before we go on with this journey. Go back through the man hole cover near Wiggler was just at walk up to the tree right across by the shop and Yoshi will do a ground pound like he would if he was going through a man hole cover. Yellow Yoshi will come bounding out of the tree. You will have to do a scouting mission and win before Yellow Yoshi joins up. Win and Yellow Yoshi is now in your roster. Once done here head back to the man hole cover go through and go through were the track was blocking to the main area of Yoshi Park. Remember the Yoshi blocking the man hole cover that sent you to find Yoshi. Go up to him and speak with him. The Yoshi will join your team roster and let you by to use the man hole cover to reach the next area. Go through to go to Yoshi Park's stadium. You find Birdo stuck on the ledge because Bowser Jr. has lowered the rainbow crossing. You find Bowser Jr. over next to a warp pipe with a Pirahna sticking out of it. Time to take on Bowser Jr. and save Birdo. (Really why would you want to save Birdo. You dont even really know if its a boy or a girl. And for those questioning this is because if you have been around the Mario scene long enough you know this already about Birdo.) Anyway time for another Bowser Jr. challenge. Beat down Bowser Jr. so he runs off saying he didn't want this park anyway. The crossing will come up for Birdo and you have saved the day. Birdo is grateful and shows it by joining the team roster. You can also change back to Captain Mario now for a quick visit through the warp pipe while were here. Going through the warp pipe brings you to a Yellow Shy Guy guarding a chest. Its the brush you are looking for and Yellow Shy Guy isnt going to let you have it. Time to take the Yellow Shy Guy on a scouting mission and win. Once you win Yellow Shy Guy joins the team roster. The only problem like before you need Captain Wario before you can open the chest. So back through the warp pipe. Change back to Captain Yoshi and return back to the main area of the park. You can either change back to Mario or stay Yoshi. I changed back to Mario, but it is whatever you would like to do at this time. Once back at the entrance, save your progress at this time. Time to visit Wario City. **************************************************************************** Wario City Your first time to Wario city will be covered in fog and Wario stuck on top of a building and can't get down because there is no power to the city and the elevator also is down with out power. So you Mario are going to have to help get Wario down from the building. (Seriously who would have thought Mario would have to help Wario. Now I have seen everything.) Anyway make your way from the entrance over to the Wario City's shop where you find Goomba outside looking distressed over something. Goomba is needing help getting his shops lights working again. Goomba's Neon Light Minigame I am calling this a minigame because well if you played Mario Party 8 before this you know of what I am speaking about. Take the paint brush and follow the light with no breaks fill the line in and once finished the light works. NOTE: If you have a break and let go of the brush and fail you can redo this again. You have three lights you have to fill in with the paint brush and you get the lights working again. With the lights working part of the fog disapates so you can visit another part of the city south of the shop. Goomba decides to join the team because he like baseball so much. Now Goomba's City Shop is now open for your business. Head south from there, the first two palm trees have coins when you use Yoshi doing a ground pound. The last palm tree has Paragoomba hiding from Bowser Jr. Paragoomba is upset at first for finding him, but changes his tune with a scouting mission. Scouting Mission with Paragoomba This mission is using a Ball Dash Any character will do here. After you beat Paragoomba he joins your team. For now just leave the Koopatrooper alone at the blank billboard because you need the brush from Yoshi Park and the Yoshi there that is looking for the brush. So walk on to the lighthouse after talking to Red Paratrooper telling you that if you get the lighthouse working you will get rid of more of the fog in the city. So make your way to the entrance of the lighthouse. Yellow Magikoopa decides to stop you before you can turn that lighthouse back on. Battle Mission Yellow Magikoopa This mission requires you to hit the sweetspot with the bat. Any character with good swing will do in this mission. NOTE This battle mission is very hard. And very picky about where you are hitting the sweet spot. So this make take a couple of tries. I know it took myself and Luke three times worth to get it right. And alot of luck involved, so we feel your frustration here. After you beat Yellow Magikoopa Red Paratrooper turns the Lighthouse on for you. More of the city is now able to be walked through now. Red Paratrooper now joins your team after this. Head up from the lighthouse toward the building that has Wario stuck on. As you can see you dont have a Captain who can climb vines so will have to leave Wario City for now and go to DK's Jungle for our next captain. Leave there to the entrance. SAVE. I cant say this enough that you need to save your work. I dont want to see anyone lose hard work that they have put into a game. From the entrance go to DK Jungle. **************************************************************************** DK Jungle Once you get to DK Jungle you find out very quickly that Bowser Jr. has showed up and is trying to take this park as well. You want to begin by going up to DK who is very distressed. Examine the crate first, DK takes a look and realize there is something inside the crate. DK breaks the crate to find a barrel cannon. NOTE for those looking around before following DK across the creek to the other side. THE SHOP IS CLOSED. So you might as well move on and keep up with DK. Dark Bones is waiting on you because Dixie is trying to keep Dark Bones from going on. Time for another Battle Mission. Battle Mission Dark Bones Steal a homerun with a Buddy Jump. Anyone with good outfielding will work here for this mission. You will be paired up with someone you are compatiable with out on the field. So chose anyone. Once you defeat Dark Bones DK leaves about the Stone Tablet that Dixie says has been broken by Bowser Jr. and is hid throughout the area. Dixie says there is a piece of tablet behind the exit sigh before you leave the area she thinks. Head back to the beginning across the creek and take a look around the exit sign. You found the 1st piece out of three of the tablet. Dixie decides to join up with you to help find the tablet and beat Bowser Jr. Head back to Dixie, she decides to join you now that you found the first piece of tablet. Two more pieces to go. DK comes back down the vine to find that Dixie has joined you. DK decides to give you a scouting mission before he joins up with you. Scouting Mission with DK Get and OUt. This is a real easy mission. Use princess Peach because she has the best swing that there is. Once you get DK out he decides to join the team. New captain, DK can break barrels and crates, and also climb vines. Since we are already here at DK Jungle will go ahead and finish this park first before we make our way back to Wario City and save Wario off the top of the building. NOTE any flower you come across with Mario as captain will have just coins. Just thought you should be aware. Switch to DK and climb up the vine to find Diddy Kong going on about the tablet being broken and missing. So Diddy Kong sends you on your way to find the other two missing pieces. So go south of there and climb on down the vine to find Fire Bro harassing Funky Kong about a tablet piece. Funky Kong runs off through the tunnel with Fire Bro taking chase. Head on down and follow them through the tunnel to the other side. Fire Bro isnt happy about you sticking your nose into whats taking place and challenges you to a battle mission. Battle Mission with Fire Bro Out with a Charge Pitch You should go ahead and stick with Princess Peach as your pitcher for this mission. Once beating Fire Bro and send him packing back to Bowser Jr. DK has a talk with Funky Kong about what is taking place. Funky Kong decides to join up and help the team out. Funky Kong's Funky Shop is now open for business in DK Jungle. Walk up to the statue and you have now found the second piece of tablet. Two tablet pieces found, one left to go. Go back the way you came with DK as captain still, going from Diddy Kong go down the vine you started with DK and south near the creek from the barrel cannon is another vine to go down on. Kritter is blocking the path at the pond. Mission with Ktitter Clammer to get the ball. You should use Dixie Kong for this mission because she has the best stats compared to the other Kong's in your group so far. NOTE Make sure to hold A when you are next to the wall so Dixie can climb to catch the ball. NOTE after defeating Kritter he does not join up with the team. Kritter vanishes for now allowing you to cross the pond. Once you cross the pond have DK break the barrel to find a Blue Kritter thats going to stop you. Mission with Blue Kritter Hit a sacrifice fly to score a run. You can use anyone with a good swing to complete this mission. After defeating Blue Kritter, (which does not join also just runs off) a statue rises out of the water in the pond. Looks like a Kritter head. Oh well head back across the pond over to the closed up tunnel with DK and have him break the boards so you can go through the tunnel. Make your way to the other side and head down the vine. Switch to Yoshi and do a ground pound at the tree to reveal Baby DK with a scouting mission to join the team. Scouting Mission with Baby DK Get an out with a Buddy Move Any good outfielder will do for this mission. After winning the mission Baby DK joins the team. Switch from Yoshi back to DK and head up the vine, through the tunnel and up the next vine. Switch from DK to Mario and check out the flower that just bloomed in the middle of the area. You have now found the last tablet. Now that you have all three tablet pieces, switch back to DK and make your way up to Diddy Kong to put the tablet pieces back where they belong so the stone bridge will raise so that you can cross. Once you have the tablet pieces in place and the stone bridge has risen up, you once again find yourself confronting Bowser Jr. trying to take the stadium and kidnap Tiny Kong. Time for Mario to play hero again. Diddy Kong joins the team to save Tiny Kong. You can either do one of two things here. Take on Bowser Jr. or go ahead and get another character that I found to really help out in the Battle Mission against Bowser Jr. So I am going to cover getting this character than the Battle Mission. Go ahead and go down the vine with DK and than switch to Mario and go under the bridge since it is now raised. You now find yourself with Red Kritter stopping you from using the warp pipe to continue. Mission Red Kritter Double Play Use can use Princess Peach or Baby Peach for this mission. I went with Princess Peach because her stat was just a bit better. Once you win take Mario through the warp pipe in front of Brown Kritter in front of a chest. Another mission is about to take place. Mission Brown Kritter Don't let them score. Use Princess Peach for this mission because she has the best swing. Once you win Brown Kritter runs off, another statue rises out of the water and the waterfall ends revealing King K. Rool. (Now you see why I went ahead and finished getting the characters for DK Jungle before taking on Bowser Jr.) Go back through the warp pipe and switch to DK to go down the vine to go to the pond where King K. Rool is waiting to challenge you to a scouting mission. Scouting Mission with King K. Rool Hit a Homerun Your best bet is to either use DK or Petey Pirahna since they have the highest stats in swing and more likely to get a homerun off. Once you win the scouting mission you are now joined by, King K. Rool Kritter Blue Kritter Red Kritter Brown Kritter Now that you done getting these characters its time to put Bowser Jr. in his place for trying to take the stadium and park of DK Jungle. So make your way back to the bridge and cross to play Bowser Jr. Battle Mission with Bowser Jr. Win the Game. Win the game, HA! Easier said the done. This is no easy match like before with Bowser Jr. at the other parks. Bowser Jr. gives you 1 inning to win in, a 1 run lead on his side, and starts with being the batting team. So this can take you a couple of times to win in. Good luck. If you really need help with the team to win with, Email me and I will give you the list of characters that will get you that win. And email me with the team that works best and you won with. Im always open to putting a section in the guide with fellow gamers with there best team. Anyway after beating Bowser Jr. Tiny Kong will join the team and the stadium is now open for play and a minigame is now open as well. You now have found everyone in this park. And the shop in now 50% off all items at Funky Kong's Funky Shop. Now its time to leave and go back to the entrance to save our progress and ahead back to Wario City to save Wario. **************************************************************************** Wario City the Return for Wario Now that DK has joined up with you will go back over to the building with the vines and climb up and save Wario. Wario isnt thrilled to be saved but grateful all the same for you doing it. Wario joins you as the last captain in your team. Head back down the vine as DK and begin breaking the brown crates among the blue metal crates. Switch to Wario so that he can move the metal crates with his magnet. Break the brown crate in the middle as DK. You found Boo hiding. Scouting Mission with Boo Throw to home with a Lazer Beam. You can use Blue Pianta for this mission. Once you win the scouting mission Boo joins up with the team. Switch back to Wario and finish moving the blue metal crates to form a walking path so that here in a bit you can change to Yoshi to go through the man hole cover. First though lets go over to the electric generator where the Boomerang Bro is keeping Red Koopa from trying to fix the electic panel. So sticking your nose into the situation ends up causing a battle mission. Battle Mission with Boomerang Bro Get and out with a Buddy Move. Anyone you want to use for this battle mission will work just fine to win the match. Once you beat Boomerang Bro Red Koopa ask if Wario can use his magnet to fix the electic panel and get the rest of the city's power running again. So once the power is running again after Wario fixes it, the rest of this fog vanishes away and reveals the stadium right in the middle of the road way, and with Bowser Jr. waiting for you to take him on. Red Koopa has now joined the team. Before we go ahead and play Bowser Jr. remember that man hole cover before you can now reach with the path you made. Time to switch to Yoshi and go on through. You bounce on up the other side on top of a building. Switch to Wario and you find Waluigi (I refer to him and Waluigitz because Nintendo cant create a good Luigi counter part like they did with Mario to Wario, that wasnt to bad. I just think that Nintendo could really do a better job than what they did. But I am not of the creative mind at Nintendo.) Anyway Wario confronts Waluigi about try to take his chest from him. So Waluigi decides to give you a scouting mission. Scouting Mission with Waluigi Hit a homerun to win. Anyone with high swing rating will do, but for a sure fire win I would use DK, King K. Rool, or Petey Pirahna. Just what I recommend. Anyway after you win the scouting mission Waluigi joins the team. Check out the chest for the item. You now have an error item Fireball. Switch back to Yoshi make your way back around toward Goomba's city shop. Check out the wanted poster just before you take on Bowser Jr. Switch to Princess Peach and check the poster again. OUt jumps koopa complaining about you finding his hiding space. Scouting Mission with Koopa Quick Throw You can only use Princess Peach or Baby Peach for this mission. Once you win Koopa joins the team. Go ahead now and talk to Bowser Jr. He complains that your ruined his fog and the takeover of Wario City. Battle Mission Bowser Jr. Win the Game. Like the time before at DK Jungle you are now down two runs with only one inning and Bowser Jr. is the batting team. Just do what you did before in DK Jungle to win that game just you need three runs to win this game. As before chose the best team you think will win the match. If you need any help here, like before shoot me an email and I will send you one back with the best team that worked for me, and what items to put on what character. So after you win the game Bowser Jr. runs off. Now that you have saved all the parks from Bowser Jr. its now time for you to save and get ready to find the rest of the hiding characters at the other stadium before you go to Bowser Jr.'s playroom. So lets leave the city and go to Yoshi Park. Also you should save your progress at this point. **************************************************************************** Yoshi Park take 2 Once you return to Yoshi Park make your way over to the stadium as Yoshi and than turn into Peach and checkout the cut down stumps where Shy Guys keep poping there heads up. Use Princess Peach's ability to have the first Shy Guy which is Green out and he will face you in a scouting mission. Scouting Mission with Green Shy GUy Tag Up and Go You will have to use Princess Peach for this mission. Once completed and has joined the team, you will use Princess Peach's ability again for Gray Shy Guy to pop out with another scouting mission for you. Scouting Mission with Gray Shy Guy Steal a homerun with a Buddy Jump Anyone will do for this mission. The game will put someone near by that will work with the character you choose. Once you are done there change into Mario and take the warp pipe over to where you have a chest. Switch to Wario to open the chest. You now have the brush Red Yoshi is looking for. Switch back to Mario back the way you came. Back to Yoshi and go to the shop where you talk to Red Yoshi. He is glad you found the brush and joins the team and if you can give the brush back to the Paratroopa in Wario City. You have now found everyone in Yoshi Park. Everything in now 50% off in the store. Yoshi Park is now complete. Time to go back to Mario Stadium once again for the last time. **************************************************************************** Mario Stadium for the last time Go ahead and switch from Yoshi to DK and take out the first moving crate that should bring out Red Pianta. Red Pianta will give you a scouting mission before he joins the team Scouting Mission with Red Pianta Throw a laser beam Just use Wario for this mission or another Pianta will work. Just easier to use Wario just as well. After you win the mission and Red Pianta joins the team. switch to Yoshi to do a ground pound at the palm tree for Yellow Pianta to calm poping down. Than you will be given another scouting mission I cant remember off the top of my head but an easy one to win at. Once you have Yellow Pianta in the team you now have everyone from Mario Stadium. Everything is now 50% off at the shop. Time to leave and save and visit Peach Ice Garden once again. **************************************************************************** Peach Ice Garden the Ice Skating continues Well you are back again to get Baby Daisy her rattle which has fallen into the fountains water. You will need to use Wario to get the rattle out of the water. From there switch to Yoshi and head over to the man hole cover and speak to Baby Daisy. She is so happy that you found her rattle. Baby Daisy joins the team. Also why you are here get the error item out of the chest before leaving. You have found everyone in the park. Everything is now 50% off at the shop. Will leave here save and leave for Wario City. **************************************************************************** Wario City the Big Time for the last time Once you return here head south from Goomba's shop and you will see Paratroopa looking at a blank billboard. Speak to him. He see's that you have his brush. Paratroopa ask you to paint something on the billboard with the paint brush. Paint whatever you want for the first time. Once done Paratroopa likes it and joins the team. And you can now paint anything you want anytime you want. NOTE what you paint will now be on the file choice. You now have found everyone in Wario City. Everything in the shop is now 50% in the store. Time to leave here and make your way to face Bowser Jr. **************************************************************************** Bowser Jr.'s Playroom Time for the big ball game between your team and Bowser Jr. team. There will be 3 innings against Bowser Jr. This game is far more in your favor than it was at DK Jungle and Wario City when he had a run or 2 run advantage. So you are more able to get the scores up and win far more easier. Other than what I told you there isnt much strategy here other than what I can offer up if you have trouble just shoot me an email to any three of us if there is a specific question related to the final games here. Thanks **************************************************************************** Night time is the Right Time Once beating Bowser Jr. its time for dear old Dad to make an entrance. Bowser is only playable at night time. If you have bought Luigi's flashlight at Mario Stadium there is now a minigame to play at Luigi's Mansion to make some coin if you need it. Also there is now a secret shop. SSSHHHH its a secret. But I will share it is found at Daisy Cruiser only at night time. If you see the item/shop section above you will know the items and cost. There is a minigame now at Mario Stadium and also at Peach Ice Garden. So if you need some items or feeling like a minigame before Bowser go ahead. NOTE click on the moon to switch to day or night now. Bowser Castle is next. **************************************************************************** Bowser Castle Like before in Bowser Jr.'s Playroom Bowser Castle is a tricky place to play for anyone. The outfield is a crazy area to play in. And Bowser is no push over for anyone. You have 5 innings to play and you always start out at bat first. The game is very hard but can be pulled off if you play things out right like you did against Bowser Jr. NOTE Bowser rarely ever not throws a fast pitch. So be prepared. And Bowser likes to throw curves with that. And if he gets a few Star Gauge up to three or more, be prepared to feel a special pitch back to back. Other than for this good luck. You won the game. Congrats. Well sorta, Bowser wasnt really trying very hard and wants you to comeback and get some more. The team you chose will now have a star associated with them in the roster. This is is suppose to improve your stats out on the field. Time for the real match with Bowser. **************************************************************************** Bowser Castle the Real Match Well you thought it was harder before. Think again it just got harder to beat Bowser this time. And that Star Power that is suppose to help, well I couldnt tell a darn thing in this baseball match let alone any I played at the other stadiums. Anyway try to do as much the same as you did last time you played Bowser. Just expect it to be harder this time. You will of course start as the batting team like before. Good Luck to you in this game. If in need of advice email us were sure to help. Yes you did it you beat Bowser again. And this time you get the real ending that you were hoping for the first time. Its a funny ending to watch and you now have star power if used any diffrent character that you didnt in the first match. Bowser, Bowser Jr, and there team joins your roster you can now use in challenge mode at the diffrent stadiums. Congrats on beating the game and now you can have fun playing minigames and playing with friends. You can now also view the ending movie when you want anytime. And also you can play against the teams of the other stadiums when you want. NOTE to you the player when you do face off against the team of that stadium you will lose those characters and have to use others. More or less this is to play for coins and at harder levels. I think they could have done more here as well but oh well. Anyway congrats on beating the game again. Hope to see you in another game soon. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10. Minigames ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are here about minigames if you have been playing the game for any amount of time you have realized there isnt very many minigames to play in Mario Super Sluggers. More or less there are about 10 minigames and you can play them with friends from the main menu or play for coins when in challenge mode. So Im not going to go all out in this section because for the most part I have covered them in the challenge mode. Nothing will have changed other than you can choose who you want to play with if they are CPU characters or when you are playing against friends if you are choosing the minigame section from the main menu. So if there is something specific you need check the challenge mode section out. Thanks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 11. Toy Field ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Toyfield can be played for fun to win the most coins in a set number of rounds that you chose. You can play by yourself against three other CPU's or play against your friends whenever you want. This isnt a bad minigame to play by itself if you are looking for something diffrent. I really havent played to much other than in challenge mode to make some money. So other than for that its alright. Could be better or not even be stand alone to chose other than in challenge mode or shoudl have been put with the minigames section you chose from the main menu. So other than that cant say much else for it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 12. Training ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I know I had put this down here. But truly most people that are going to this guide arent going to hop down to training unless they havent played this game and want to get an idea before the rent or buy this game if it is going to be easy and fun. Training teaches you how to play the game with the three diffrent control types that I shared above in controls section. It really is a helpful place to learn the game mechanics and teach you how to play with diffrent plays and all the moves you need to know in the baseball game. So for the most part if any questions here email us with your question will be glad to help. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 13.Credits ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This section is for the people who made this possible and helped me along the way writing this guide.

Contact Information ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- For questions, comments, concerns, or possibly a better approach to a section of the guide. Or the need to fix spelling. With so much being wrote and this not being on Microsoft word its easy to have a misspelled word here or there. And hate mail because you know some people just cant get over something can direct it to these people and there email address. Thank You. Xereth18 (at) hotmail.com or gabby112004 (at) yahoo.com and xenon_zaleo17 (at) yahoo.com If possible try the first two emails before attempting the third.

Closing ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope that this guide helps you the reader enjoy Mario Super Sluggers just as much as I enjoyed playing the game and writing this guide. I cant say as to what my future guide will be next since my last guide writing involved Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball a few years ago. My wife is the one who thought I should pick up the NotePad and start guide writing again. So hopefully this guide was helpful and easy to read. Look foward to seeing you the reader in my next guide. Thank You and God Bless. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Copyright (c)2008 by Joshua A.
