=-= 1. [INT] Introduction =-=-------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Hi, my name is Omnitarian, and this is my second FAQ. GameFAQs had very 
 little info on Meteos, so I decided to take things into my own hands. I 
 hope you enjoy this FAQ much more than I enjoyed making it. (Seriously. 
 Writing FAQs is EXTREMELY BORING.)

=-= 1a. [VER] Version History
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
 1.0  - First draft. Very rough.

 1.11 - A big step up. Planet list was re-formatted, and information was added.

        Added some formatting goodness all 'round town. Added Wanted section.
 1.2  - Finished all the planet fusion lists, added Sound Fusion list, more
        mediocre ascii at the top, added FAQ (kinda). I was able to find all
        the new information by myself, but thank you to everyone who wrote in.

 1.3  - Expanded FAQ section. Moved Planet/Sound fusions to their own sections.
        Added appearance and board size info to the planet list.
        Special thanks to 404notfound for some flavor text and clarifications.

 1.35 - Some new info everywhere. Lots of people helped on this one.
        devilishmew, Ulttimaa, and TeamKazuya all sent in flavor texts,
        including Planet Meteo! ness12587 sent in some sound fusion reqs, and 
        so did puyopop and That Midget. qrax sent a suggestion, and 
        muffinman3000 sent a correction.

 1.4  - A bit more information. Everybody was eager to send in sound fusion
        requirements: I'm in a good mood, so I'll thank EVERYBODY who sent
        it in; Bladeliger689, cloud779, itoltz, muffinman3000, RedScar,
        Psykechan, Rasputin, cdgardner, and qwerm. Phew, maybe I should
        update more swiftly... also, Jesse and Heydeze sent in tips for
        Bavoom and Wiral, respectively. Thanks everyone! I also changed all
        of the meteo names to their U.S. standards. I know, I know, "zoo"
        and "herb" are very stupid, but if it can help prevent confusion,
        I just gotta do it.

 1.5  - There's not much more to add to this FAQ. Unless I have a sudden 
        urge to list endings, or I forgot something, this FAQ won't be 
        updated anymore. Added some planet info, fusion requirements, misc. 
        tips, and other tiny things. Downgraded the Wanted and Contact 
        sections. Thanks to Aaron (tip), Skyknight (fusion),  Mechashadow 
        (tip), Mome Rath (fusion), aftermath (suggestion), Tymills 
        (suggestions), Dr. Sunglasses (tip), and Mattman (fusion).

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-= 2. [MEN] Menus/Playmodes =-=----------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Navigating the menus of Meteos can be a bit confusing if you just 
    started playing. Here's a rundown.

=-= 2a. [MET] Meteos: Play a 1-Player Game of Meteos.
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
-Simple: Play a game against computers or yourself. Change your
 planet by tapping on the planet. Change the CPU players by tapping
 the bars in the lower-left. TIP: If Deluge is too short for your 
 taste, make a "marathon" mode by setting no computer players, 1 stock,
 and easy difficulty.

-Star Trip: The "story mode" of Meteos. Straight route sends you across 7
 planets chosen at random. Branched route allows you to pick your path.
 Multi Route will let you get different endings, depending on whether or
 not you clear the missions for each planet.

-Time War: Shoot for a high score in one of 4 different scenarios. The
 planets you play as are pre-determined.

-Deluge: Play until the screen fills up. Things can get pretty hectic.
  You can play in any planet you've unlocked.

-Tutor: A visual tutorial, so you can learn the basics of Meteos.

=-= 2b. [FUS] Fusion: Purchase new planets and sounds.
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
-The blocks you clear in "Meteos" modes can be used to purchase stuff.

-Planets: Purchase new planets. The planets can then be used in deluge mode, 
 or you can make them your home planet in the options menu.

-Items: Purchase items for multiplayer. See (Item Fusion) For more info.

-Rare Metals: Purchase rare meteos, which you can use to purchase more stuff.

-Sounds: Purchase sound sets, which you can listen to in the "extras" menu.

=-= 2c. [OPT] Options: Modify game settings here.
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
-Planet Registry: Choose your home planet. Your home planet will be your 
  default planet for Star Trip and Simple modes, as well as your planet
  for multicard wireless matches. (Note: choosing a planet in star trip,
  deluge, or simple modes wil automatically change your home planet.) 

-Item Switch: Choose what items show up. The item switch effects the Simple,
  multiplayer, and Star Trip modes.

-Hand Choice: Pick if you're left or right handed. The choice affects which 
 side of the screen some things appear on.

-Ignore this line: Om.ni just put it here to prevent fraud.

-Sound Balance: Modify the relative volume of Music and SFX.

-Erase Data: Erase some or all of your save data. Selecting this will
  bring up a menu, so you can choose one of 5 different things to erase.
  TIP: If you erase "Fusion & Prizes", the planets you've earned in Fusion
  will be erased, but your high scores for those planets will remain.

=-= 2d. [EXT] Extras: View spiffy unlockables here.
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
-Sounds: Listen to the sounds you've unlocked in the "Fusion" menu.

-Stats: Look at a bunch of extraneous statistical info.

-Demo Download: Send a demo of Meteos to a friend.

=-= 2e. [WIR] Wireless: Play a multiplayer match using the DS's wireless.
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
-VS: Use this for multicard multiplayer.

-DS Download play: Use this for single card multiplayer. You can only
  use the 4 starting planets in this mode.

-Profile: View the profiles of the people you've played against. The game
  keeps track of your own profile, for some reason.


=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-= 2. [PLN] Planets =-=------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= 1. [Anasaze] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "This wild planet has a thin atmosphere, making life harsh. Anasazeans
    can go days subsisting on a tiny bit of water."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, Soil, Iron, Zoo
    Anasaze is a good place to mine for Soil.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are brown, with a big eye and an oval foot.
=-= Blocks are square, textured rocks.    
=-= Music is "Wild West Cowboy"
    Backbeat is a guitar riff, boosts are funky whistling.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-=
=-= Anasaze's physics are relatively normal, but combos are very weak. 
    Vertical boosts are fairly powerful. Playfield is 9 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= The toughest thing about Anasaze is its extremely weak secondary 
    boosts. Most of the time, it's better to let a failed rocket de-thaw 
    instead of going for a combo- that is, unless you make a midair combo
    using a VERTICAL boost. Flicking meteos onto rockets gives a 
    surprisingly good jump to the thrusters.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 2. [Bavoom] =-=-----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "Fierce winds cut through the dense atmosphere of this barren planet.
    The Bavoomians live on the wind currents."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, H20, Soil, Iron
    Bavoom is a good place to mine for Air.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are teal creatures with flowing bodies.
=-= Blocks are 2-D colored squares with colored symbols.
=-= Music is "Funky Horn"
    Backbeat is a percussion riff, boosts are... funky horns.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= The dense atmosphere means rockets are weak and descend quickly. 
    Vertical boosts are weak. Combos are fairly powerful. Playfield is 10
    squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= This is one of those High-gravity, high-density planets where you have
    to use combos, but the rockets are falling way too fast for you to do
    anything. Try to let your rockets fall to the ground, then make a combo
    before they de-thaw. For some reason, holding the speeder will cause
    rockets to fall very slowly, which can help in some situations.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 3. [Boggob] =-=-----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "The Warlike people of this swampy planet must fight for life in an
    ecosystem teeming with predators."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, H20, Soil, Herb, Zoo
    Boggob is a good place to mine for Herb.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are green dudes with leafy headresses.
=-= Blocks are fat, writhing, abstract symbols.
=-= Music is "Cha-Cha Chop"
    Backbeat is a series of chanting, boosts are tribal yelling.


=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Rocket power is okay, but they descend quickly and usually need a combo 
    to clear the screen. Vertical boosts work well. Playfield is 9 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= This planet can be pretty unforgiving, but it's still managable. Shoot 
    for step jumps and vertical launches. It's best to wait for rockets to
    fall back to the ground, then making a combo on them. Flicking meteos 
    at rockets will also help them clear the screen.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 4. [Brabbit] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "A collage of colored gas hangs over this planet. Brabbiters are 
    sentient gas beings and amazing shape-shifters."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, H20, Soil, Zap
    Brabbit is a good place to mine for Air.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are magenta things with a head made of dots.
=-= Blocks are heavily animated symbols
=-= Music is "Pon!"
    Backbeat is soft cymbals, boosts are weird trumpets.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Brabbit has a super-dense atmosphere. Rockets rise very slowly, 
    and combos don't help out much. Playfield is 9 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= Not a good planet for novice players; but once you get used to the crazy
    physics, you can easily exploit this planet. It's easy to construct a
    gigantic rocket using step jumps. Once you've done that, juggling it in
    the air with midair combos is an easy task.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 5. [Cavious] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "A massive cavern stretches deep below this planet. The stubborn
    Caviousians use their heads as rock hammers."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Fire, Soil, Iron, Zap, Herb
    Cavious is a good place to mine for Soil.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are purple humanoids with sledgehammer-shaped heads.
=-= Blocks are 3-D symbols.
=-= Music is "Ambient Pipes"
    Backbeat is soft chiming, boosts are up-tempo chiming tunes.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= A very wide playfield. Rocket power is satisfactory, although
    incoming meteos will hamper your rockets. Playfield is 11 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= It's different, but not really all that hard. Just stick to your
    traditional methods. Midair combos are easy, thanks to the slow rocket
    descents. And flicking meteos can help a bit too.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 6. [Dawndus] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "This planet boasts a perpetual state of either dawn or dusk. The
    insomniac Dawndusians like to feign sleep."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, Soil, Herb, Zoo
    Dawndus is a good place to mine for a mix of meteos.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are reddish-orange humanoids with large, lemon-shaped heads.
=-= Blocks are 3-D symbols.
=-= Music is "Drumline"
    Backbeat is conga drums, boosts are Indian-flavored guitaring.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Physics are relatively normal, rockets last a while before they "de-thaw".
    Playfield is 8 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= Not a really difficult planet. The increased rocket time means you'll
    often end up with an enormous rocket that fills your whole screen. This
    really isn't a bad thing, because you can't get a game over when your
    entire screen is one big rocket. Still, you may have a problem with 
    failed rockets de-thawing and turning into a copious amount of meteos. 
    In any case, you should be able to do well on this planet. Oh yeah: 
    Gravity is a bit elevated too, so don't try to make matches on the very 
    bottom of your stack (unless, of course, you're shooting for a giant
    rocket).

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 7. [Firim] =-=------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "This incandescent planet burns from within and rotates at high speed.
    The Firimes can command lava flows at will."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, Soil, Iron, Zap
    Firim is a good place to mine for Fire.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are megenta guys with flame-shaped heads and long arms.
=-= Blocks are heavily animated, textured squares.
=-= Music is "Rocking Spirit"
    Backbeat is a hard rock drumbeat, boosts are heavy metal guitar riffs.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Firim has a narrow playing field. Primary boosts aren't that effective, 
    but combos and vertical boosts are very powerful. 
    Rockets descend a bit slow. Playfield is 7 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= Firim can be a bit tough for newbies, but it won't prove much of a 
    problem once you've gotten the hang of combos. You can either make a
    bunch of vertical boosts, or shoot for a bunch of midair combos. (If you
    end up with a particularly large rocket, try a vertical midair boost for
    excellent thrust.)`	

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 8. [Florias] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "Flowers bloom wildly on this planet. Florisians are sentient plants
    that use their own petals to tell the future."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, H20, Herb, Zoo
    Florias is a good place to mine for Herb and Zoo.
    Many dark meteos show up on Florias, as well.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are pink flowers.
=-= Blocks are textureless colored squares.
=-= Music is "Indie Music Troupe"
    Backbeat is a continuous high-hat, boosts are tango-style organ tunes.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Very nuetral physics, although large loads will hamper rocket power.
    Playfield is 10 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= A fairly straightforward planet. Anything that doesn't get pushed off 
    the screen can easily be comboed.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 9. [Forte] =-=------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "The timid Forters—renowned jumpers—live in the deep surface cracks of 
    this liquid- and plant-free planet."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, Soil, Iron, Zoo
    Forte is a good place to mine for Soil.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are big pruple guys with boomerang-shaped heads.
=-= Blocks are 3-D textured squares.
=-= Music is "Stepped on"
    Backbeat is a bassline, boosts are piano notes.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Gravity is very high: the more meteos a rocket has to carry, the less
    likely it is to leave the screen. Vertical boosts work well, even if 
    they're carrying a lot of Meteos. Playfield is 9 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= This is another funky-physics planet that you can use to your advantage.
    Make a horizontal set near the bottom, then make a vertical match in
    mid-air for an enormous boost. This tactic will work even on rockets that
    cover the whole screen- *wink, wink*.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 10. [Freaze] =-=----------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "Chilling blizzards ravage this icy orb. Freazers are more matter than
    organism, and enjoy sliding their bulk over ice."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, H20, Soil, Iron, Zap
    Freaze is a good place to mine for H20.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are blue golems with a white eye and 2 chunky legs.
=-= Blocks are icy-textured squares, with symbols on them.
=-= Music is "Winter Impasse"
    Backbeat is a tympani and woodblock, boosts are Japan-style strums.


=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Slightly high gravity, so overburdened rockets may fail to clear the 
    screen. Otherwise, it's fairly ordinary. Playfield is 7 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= This a pretty average course, so you won't need any fancy technique to 
    master it. Flicking meteos at rockets works surprisingly well.

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 11. [Geolyte] =-=---------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "Earth, water, and air are balanced on this blue planet. The merry Geolyte
    civilization is very similar to Earth's."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, H20, Soil, Zoo
    Geolyte is a good place to mine for a mix of meteos.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are cyan stick-figures with horns.
=-= Blocks are 3-Dish squares with big symbols.
=-= "Bravo"
    Backbeat is a snare drum, boosts are tunes from a weird instrument.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Middle-of-the-road on all counts. Playfield is 9 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= Geolyte's physics are well balanced. This is almost a bad thing, because 
    there's no weakness to exploit. Still, Geolyte is a pretty easy planet 
    to play on. 

=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=


=-= 12. [Gigagush] =-=--------------------------------------------------=-=
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Flavor Text
=-=---------=-=
=-= "The great vortex around this planet sucks in anything nearby. Gigagushers 
    suck in prey and use poison fangs."

=-= Elements
=-=------=-=
=-= Air, Fire, Iron, Zap, Herb, Zoo
    Gigagush is a good place to mine for Zoo.

=-= Appearance
=-=--------=-=
=-= Natives are purple-grey spiders with a big head and 3 spindly legs.
=-= Blocks are monocolored, pixel-y characters.
=-= Music is "Aliens"
    Backbeat is Space-Invaders beeping, boosts are even more beeping.

=-= Physics
=-=-----=-= 
=-= Very weird. Stacks rise a bit, then fall straight down. All moves are
    equal in power. Playfield is 11 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= Invasion of the pixel-planet! I actually find this planet to be pretty
    easy to play on. There's no point in using combos here- every move is
    equal in power. The only way for a combo to help you is if you are able 
    to pull off a midair boost, but the planet's quick gravity kinda dampens
    that prospect. Matches made near the bottom will be just as effective as
    those made at the top, so don't be afraid to reach to the bottom of your
    stack.

    A side effect of the head-to-head? Playfield is 10 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= I generally tend to avoid this planet, if only because of its creepiness.
    Things will get pretty busy. Never stop matching meteos. Making combos
    will take too long: just make matches everywhere. The potent rocket power
    means you can work at the bottom of the stack. Critical stacks will weild
    Game Overs very quickly, so playfield maintenance is key.

=-= Okay, truth be told, there IS a way to not have a rocket clear the screen
    in Hevendor. Super Rocket + full screen of meteos = not clearing 
    everything. But you don't have to worry about that. Back on point, it 
    doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out this one. Make a bunch 
    of horizontal stacks near the bottom, and watch the fireworks. Many
    people think, "Oh wow! Infinity Deluge score and multiplayer pwnage are
    MINE with this planet!" ... but that's actually not the case. It's
    difficult to make matches on Hevendor, and there's also an increased rate

=-= The only way to clear meteos in Hotted is to use combos, or vertical 
    boosts. You can actually tackle this one similar to Gravitas: make a 
    match near the bottom of the screen, then make a midair combo to clear

=-= Lastar is pretty rare, you might fuse it before you actually encounter it.
    Anway, the weakened vertical launches and combos can be a bit tough, but

    Playfield is 7 squares.

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= A favorite amongst multiplayer veterans. Once again, it's easy to
    make a big rocket that covers the whole width of the screen, and then
    juggle it in the air to provide an effective defense. No matter how many

=-= Notes
=-=---=-=
=-= "Thirnovas are half energy?" Clearly, the game designers didn't have a
    solid grasp of physics. :P Anyway, The fact that most of your rockets will 
    be halted by incoming meteos is pretty lame, but using midair combos will

=-= 5a. [FAQ] Frequently Asked Questions 
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Q: What's the deal with star trip mode? Why am I winning?
    A: While playing in Star Trip mode, you are actually playing against a
       computer-controlled opponent. You can look at the left side of your 
       screen (Or press select twice) to view their playing field. When 
       your opponent loses, you win.

=-= Q: What are the different combos?
    A: There are 3 types of "combo" moves that can help out your rockets.
    1. STEP JUMPs are explained on page 21 of the instruction manual.
       Basically, when a rocket falls back to the ground, and it causes 3
       meteos to line up, the rocket will boost back up. This is a Step Jump.
    2. MIDAIR DOCKs are explained on page 23 of the instruction manual. When
       a rocket flies up and pushes another rocket, that's a midair dock.
    3. SECONDARY IGNITIONs and MIDAIR BOOSTs are 2 terms for the same thing:
       launch a rocket, then make a match using meteos the rocket is carrying.
       Depending on where you matched the meteos, your new match will either
       fly off as a new rocket, or stay on the present rocket, giving it a
       boost. This is the easiest and most effective combo.

=-= Q: What are Rare Metals?
    A: Rare Metals are 2 different varieties of meteo: Soul and Time. Rare
       Metals are used in fusion. To get rare metals, you may fuse them, or
       play the game until one appears (They look like normal meteos, except
       they flash weird colors.)

=-= Q: Where can I get Soul/Time Meteos?
    A: There is no sure-fire way to get Soul and Time meteos. Many people
       claim that certain planets give rare metals at a much higher rate than
       other planets; While I doubt this is true, one thing is for sure: each
       planet will give out only 1 type of rare metal, and not the other. For
       instance, Geolyte and Boggob only seem to give Soul Meteos, while 
       Grannest and Yooj fork over nothing but Time meteos. (Planet Meteo,
       however, seems to offer both Soul and Time meteos.)

=-= Q: What are the different endings?
    A: There are 12 endings. Here's what I know: Straight route has 2 endings: 
       one if you clear it with less than 500,000 points, and one if you clear 
       it with more than 500,000 points. Branched route has seven endings: see 
       those purple planets on the right-side of the map? Each planet gives a 
       different ending, so take a different route and arrive at a different 
       finishing point to see all the endings. Multi route has three endings: 
       again, each finishing point offers a different ending.

=-= Q: Can I match up rare metals? What will happen if I do?
    A: According to reports, you CAN line up rare metals and make them turn
       into rockets. The rockets appear to be no more powerful than if they
       were made out of normal meteos. (Turning rare metals into rockets is a
       bad idea, though, because you can't collect rare metals that you've 
       incinerated!)

=-= Q: Where am I gonna get all those meteos for the fusion room?
    A: The best way is to just play the game. Play the star trips, play the 
       deluge modes, play whatever. This game is meant to be enjoyed, and if 
       you can have fun while earning meteos, then it's win-win, yes?
       What, that's not good enough for you? Fine. Look in the Misc. Tips
       section for some l33t '$pl0its.

=-= Q: What's this "Live P2" Screen? / How can I see what my opponent is doing?
    A: The "Live P2" screen may show up while playing Star Trip. It shows you
       the current field of your computer opponent. You can view the "Live P2" 
       screen by pressing select, or by tapping the camera icon in the 
       lower-right corner.

=-= Q: Why isn't [planet/sound/rare metal] showing up in my fusion list?
    A: In order for something to appear in your fusion list, you MUST collect 
       the neccessary meteos required to fuse it. The moment you collect the 
       proper amount of meteos, it will show up in your fusion list.

=-= Q: How many planets are there? Is it possible to unlock them all?
    A: There are 32 planets in the game. Yes, I know whats-his-face said that
       there are 90 planets in Nintendo Power. I don't know what's up with that.
       Probably a mistranslation or something. And yes, it is possible to 
       unlock all 32 planets.

=-= Q: How in the world am I supposed to clear the 100 Meteo war in 10 seconds?
    A: You just have to not play fair. Hold down the L button and go berserk 
       with the stylus. Focus on the bottom, so you can send more meteos with 
       combos. Even using this method, you'll still need to try 20-30 times 
       before you can clear it in 10 seconds. (And if you still can't... don't 
       worry, the reward for doing so isn't all that great.)

=-= Q: How am I supposed to complete these Multi Route missions?
    A: The easy answer is: Super Rockets. Once you've unlocked Super Rockets,
       go to the item switch and turn everything off except super rockets, and
       turn the appearance rate to "High". Then go into Star Trip mode. When
       a super rocket appears, drag it to the bottom of the screen and set it
       off! Use combos to push all of the meteos offscreen. This method is
       effective for the "Clear X meteos at once" and "Clear the screen of
       meteos" missions. (Smart bombs can not help you achieve the latter.)

=-= Q: These tasks to get unlockables are impossible!
    A: Do not fret: anything that can be unlocked can also be fused, eventually.
       I have every planet and sound set in the game, and I have never met 
       someone with a DS, nor have I touched the 1,000 meteo war.

=-= Q: I'm trying to save the universe, right? So why am I BLOWING UP planets?
    A: Erm... we're not quite sure, actually. There's several theories, such
       as "They're not nova-ing, just violently destroying their meteos" and
       "the planets are puppets created by Meteo". My personal theory is that
       all the denizens of the universe are saving their planets, which means
       they must fling meteos into space. The flying meteos are crashing into
       the Metamo ark, so the ark's pilots are forced to defend themselves.
       (Which, sadly, must involve destroying a few planets.) 
       But of course, no theory has ever been confirmed by the game's 
       developers, so we'll never know for sure.

=-= Q: What do the little bars that appear before each stage symbolize?
    A: The bars indicate the proportion of meteos on each planet. For
       instance, Anasaze has lots of soil, but not much zoo. 


=-= 5b. [MSC] Misc. Tips
=-=---------------------------------------------------------------------=-=

=-= Meteos you collect during the credits will be added to your fusion stock.
    The credits have lots of glow and dark meteos, so be sure to exploit it!
    The best way to clear meteos in the credits is to make a horizontal
    ignition, then use a vertical boost in mid-air.

=-= The harder you set the difficulty setting, the longer the credits will
    last.

=-= Big rockets are one of the most important things you can learn to make.
    A big rocket that covers the entire width of the screen will easily allow
    you to clear all meteos at once, as well as "shield" yourself from a game
    over. The best way to make a big rocket is step jumps. Make a horizontal
    match at the bottom of the screen, then look at my "amazing" ASCII art:

    **o     | X's are burnt meteos.     | **X
    XXX     | O's are a color of meteo. | XXo
       o**  | *s are anything.          |    ***
       *o*  | Line them up thusly ->    |    oo*

    When the rocket lands, it will make a step jump, and increase your
    rocket's size. Repeat this process until your rocket covers the whole
    screen.

=-= The Brabbit trick is an easy way to gain a bunch of meteos in a short
    amount of time. Construct a big rocket (see above), then juggle it at
    the top of the screen while holding down the L button. Incoming meteos 
    will rain down on your rocket, but because the rocket will be right at 
    the top of the screen, they will be immediately flung back into space.
    This trick will also work on planets like Wuud, Luna=Luna, and Oleana.

=-= Another way to get lots of meteos is to unlock the Super Rocket, set the
    item switch to nothing but Super Rockets (and appearance rate to High),
    then play simple mode with the planet of your choosing. Hold down the L
    button, and when a super rocket appears, set it off and drag it to the
    bottom of your stack. After it goes off, use midair combos to clear the
    whole screen. Repeat as neccessary.

=-= There's lots of secrets hidden in the game's sound sets, such as
    Gravitas's #20 sound. They're saying "HELLO!", despite what everyone on
    the forums seems to believe. >:|

=-= Play on Hevendor, locate a Super Rocket, and then set it off at the
    bottom of your stack while your screen is completely full. Not EVERYTHING
    is infinitely effective on Hevendor, it seems...

=-= When you unlock and/or fuse every planet, item, or sound set in the game,
    the respective fusion room will change. A Geolyte will be holding a fan,
    with the words "COMPLETE" above him.

=-= The longer a game goes on, the less time there is before landed rockets 
    de-incinerate.

=-= So, you've unlocked all the fuse-ables, and now you have a surplus 10,000 
    of everything. What to do now? Well, you can erase your Fusion & Gift
    data, and then re-unlock all of the planets and sounds in the order of
    your choosing. Erasing Fusion & Gift data will not affect your high 
    scores, or anything of that nature.

 DO NOT place my FAQ somewhere on the internet without my permission. It IS 
 illegal. DO NOT ask me if you may host my FAQ. Even if you promise not to 
 change anything. It's just way too much of a problem on my part.

 This is the almost-final version of my guide. The only reason to contact 
 me is if there is if you spot a typo/misinformation in my guide, or if you 
 see that someone has stolen my guide. Do not e-mail me asking gameplay 
 questions, or asking if you may host my guide. (GameFAQs is the only site 
 allowed to host my guide.) My e-mail address is located in my contributor 
 page, and at the top of this FAQ.
