|                       I. What are Digimon Cards?                      |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even from very early in the game, certain digimon in the game will make
references to digimon cards. Digimon cards are as they sound- cards of the
different digimon found in the game. They are consistant of: 1. the digimon's
image and 2. the name in japanese. Digimon cards are split up into five 
rarity quotas- filth-common, common, uncommon, rare, Ultimate-rare. depending
on the rarity of the card, Shogungekomon will give you more or less merit 
points for it, but I will come to that later. Anyway there are exactly 
64 (sixty-four) cards in total- four filth, ten commons, twenty five uncommons,
twenty rares, and five ultimate rares. Despite thier bieng more commons and
uncommons than filth, you will most likely get 60% of your cards as filth cards.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                        II. Where do I find them?                      |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can get digimon cards from a machine in the file city item shop. you 
spend 100 bits on one card. this card is totally random, but the cards you
get are predetermined once you enter the shop, so if you dont like the cards
you get, reset, then exit end re-enter the shop to try again. To get the shop
in file city, first find Betamon in the mangrove swamp section of the tropical jungle.
to get here, cross the digimon bridge (you'll need coelamon for this)
and keep heading right across the beach. he'll be on the platform above the
J. Mojyamon. Just talk to him to recruit him. Betamon will open a small stall.
next you'll need to get Patamon.To get him, you'll need to have gotten meramon.
go through the path following the foot of mt. panorama until you come to the section
with the azuramons (the purple-flowered palmons) and the toilet, and head to the
exit at the top-left of the screen. you should now be in the gear savanna. from
here, keep going up past the two screens that follow and on the third screen, patamon
will be there. defeat him the three times that he asks to battle to recruit him.
Once you've done that patamon will open the so called "tool shop". this sells items
and such and contains the card machine, wich will be unlocked after you get about
25 prosperity points.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                          III. What uses do they have?                 |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Digimon cards only really have one use and that is to trade them away to
the digimon in game. Usually you'll get really rare/expensive items, so its
a good idea to look into them. Apart from that, they are fun to collect, cool
to look at and are a perfect compliment to your digivolution tree as it shows
no images.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                         IV. Digimon Card List                         |
------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Below is my lengthy and very useful card list. the first column is the card
number, as in the game. Next is the digimon it represents, third is its Merit 
point value, which Ill elaborate on later on in the guide, forth is the money
its woth in bits if you sell it, and lastly, they are separated in rarity, going
down from ultimate rare. NOTE: two cards that I cannot find are missing.
If you know what these are and how to get them, please email me.

WHEW! that took a long time.. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                         V. Who is Shogungekomon?                      |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Early on in the game, you will come across the gear savanna. If you continue
past the point where patamon was, heading right, you will find the geko swamp.
if you travel through the first screen, doging the sandyanmamons, the on the 
second screen, there may be a otamamon, which, after it calling you names,
you can battle and defeat. If you do so, then two gekomon will take you to the
king of gekomon, shogungekomon. at that point, he tells you about cherrymon and
the misty trees area. However, if you talk to the gekomon on his right later on
in the game, he will tell you that shogungekomon collects digimon cards! If you 
talk to him then, you will be able to trade your cards for special "merit" points
which you'll be able to redeem for prizes, explained in the sections below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                         V.b. Merit point maths                        |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, so you want 800 merit points? how will that translate into bits?
Well one card can be worth from 1-100 merit points, cant it? Using this
we can predict that..

--------------------------------------------------
|1 filth card    = 1 merit point    = 100 bits   |
|800 filth cards = 800 merit points = 80,000 bits|
--------------------------------------------------
|1 common card   = 5 merit points   = 100 bits   |
|160 common card = 800 merit points = 16,000 bit |
--------------------------------------------------
|1 uncommon card = 10 merit points  = 100 bits   |
|80 uncommon card= 800 merit points = 8,000 bits |
--------------------------------------------------
|1 rare card     = 30 merit points  = 100 bits   |
|30 rare cards   = 900 merit points = 3000 bits  |
--------------------------------------------------
|1 u-rare card   = 100 merit points = 100 bits   |
|8 u-rare cards  = 800 merit points = 800 bits   |
--------------------------------------------------

so basically, filth cards are worth 100 bits a merit point, commons are
worth 20 bits a merit point, uncommons are worth 10 bits a merit point,
rares are worth 3.3 bits a merit point and ultimate rares are worth a 
fair exchange of 1 bit a merit point.

Yes, thats right, shogungekomon trades you, amazingly, digivolution items!
Digivolution items can automatically digivolve your digimon into new ones
without the nessesary training requirements. there are 48 digivolution items
and shogungekomon can trade you four of these for digivolving to water champions.
Below is a table of the items and the digimon you get from them:

*-------------------------------------------------------------*

*-------------------------------------------------------------* 
|Hard Scale  |   500 Mpts  |    Coelamon     | rookie digimon |

|                         VII. Amazing rod and Seadramon                |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: BEFORE BUYING THE AMAZING ROD, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE OLD ROD FROM
TRASH MOUNTAIN!!

The amazing rod is an item that you can buy from shogungekomon for 300 merit
points- thats about 10 rare cards. like the old rod, you can use it to fish
for fish in dragon-eye lake. unlike the lod rod, you can use it to catch rarer
fish than before. Fish have 2 uses: 1. as food, and 2. as bait. In order to fish
for rarer fish, you must use more common ones, like black trout, to catch them.
You need the amzing rod to catch Seadramon.

Seadramon, however only needs a meat or another common item to catch. to catch 
Seadramon, you must first have defated warmonzaemon, then have talked to the tankmon 
on the left in toytown- he will mention seadramon. Then you need to recruit angemon.
who will also tell you of seadramon. finally, you need to have recruited shellmon, who
will open the "shell newspaper". Get a newspaper and read it. it will talk about the
guardian on the lake- seadramon. He will then start to appear at dragon-eye lake.
Taking the final steps to catching seadramon, go to the area of dragon eye lake
on the left of the area of native forest with the ogremon and fallen trees.
Then look to the top right of the screen where no fish are. you should see a huge
fish shadow, seadramon. Use your meat to catch the Seadramon.

Once captured, you will be given three options- 
1. lets be friends
2. teach me a move
3. give me an item

if you choose 1, seadramon will be able to ferry you to and fro to beetle land.
if you choose 2 or 3, you can still get 1 by re capturing seadramon.
2 makes seadramon teach you a water move you dont know
3 gives you the water bottle, seadramon's digivolution item.

|                              VIII. Chips!                             |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chips are digimon's rare candies. they up the stats of your digimon by 500
or 50 each. that equates to five goes on a training equiptment.they are especially
useful if you save them up. In the beggining, you wont be able to get an ultimate
easily. If you go along with a strong champion, and save your chips, you can easily 
get an ultimate. the problem with the game is that it kills your digimon before it is 
strong enought to digivolve into an ultimate. only when you can get a good amount of
chips, or a digivolution item or two can you realitically get a good ultimate.

anyway, Chips are dropped by the bosses throughout the game, and so are hard to come by.
Shogungekomon comes to the rescue by offering a chip at 800 merit points each.
an invaluable asset, dont you think?
