Final Fantasy IX 9 Sidequests and Mini-games - Chocobo Hot and Cold

A Final Fantasy just isn't complete without man's best (feathered) friend and, thankfully, the chicken/emu hybrids have a much larger part to play in FFIX than its predecessor. Not only a mode of transport, there is now a whole sidequest dedicated to them. Walk into Chocobo's Forest and you'll be able to play a treasure hunting mini game, Chocobo Hot and Cold.

The premise is simple. Run around on your mount pecking at the ground and depending on the ethusaism of Choco's "kweh?" you'll know whether you're "hot" or "cold". Hence the name. Funny that. As well as items you'll find things called "Chocographs" which give you a clue to the location of special treasure when you're hunting on the world map. They're accompanied by a tiny portrait of where you're supposed to look as a little hint. For those lost in a daze of chocobo squakings and bizarre hints, the name of each chocograph and the location of its treasure is listed below.

"Kweh"- You aren't even close to a treasure.
"Kweh!"- There's a treasure near you.
"Kweeeeh!"- You're very close to the treasure.
"K-KWEH!"- You got it!
