<version 1.00>

Pokemon is coming out on Sunday and I need something to keep me occupied or
else I will explode! So here is a guide I've been meaning to do for a while. If
I still have a lot of energy I might do a zukan guide for this game, too...

Anyway, copy and paste the little code thingies on the right side of the table
of contents into your browser's FIND function to get to that section faster.
Have fun!

// WHAT IS TOBIRA MAJIN? \\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Tobira Majin is a door character that is present in every stage of the game.
When you first run into him, you will not know what to do and he will not
interact with you. Once you've completed the game once, you can go find him in
the stages you have already completed and he will ask you a riddle. In order
to answer his riddle, you must give him your answer in the form of cards.
These cards are called "answer cards" and are hidden about the stages. Each
card has a picture on it of the "answer" it represents, and sometimes you will
have to give Tobira Majin multiple cards to satisfy one total answer; usually
these will go together in a theme.

Since some of the answer cards are hidden behind Tobira Majin himself in
certain stages, you will have to start off by finding the cards in stages where
they are not hidden. Try to visit Tobira Majin in every stage and figure out
his riddle. Once you've heard his riddle in a stage, you can view that riddle
(along with all the answer cards you have) at any time in Kyorosuke's House.

When you find a new Answer Card, check your Answer Cards book and read the
riddles you've heard to see if you can figure any out and go open them. This
will save you a lot of time rather than going back to every door once you have
a card and trying every combination of cards you have -- especially once you
get many cards. Luckily, you shouldn't have much trouble figuring out the
riddles because they are very easy.

 //---------\\                                                            [TQS]
// QUESTIONS \\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

These are basic translations for all the questions Tobira Majin asks. Since he
asks many of them in stylized ways (such as saying "what in the world is..." or
"please tell me...," I will just list them all as basic questions, so if you're
looking for an in-character accurate fanslation, this is not it. This is just
to help people who need to know what the questions mean and don't want to look
at a guide telling them to use their coconut card without having to read the
entire rest of the guide to figure out what the heck that means. Hopefully this
will help those of you who want to figure out the game on your own but don't
know Japanese.

A note on 2-4: The word 'PAN' can mean either "bread" or "pan" in Japanese.
