Final Fantasy VIII
Approach your target inconspicuously at a dance party... There may be missions requiring this sort of subterfuge.
It's expected of SeeD to know various skills.
In Final Fantasy VIII, you can ride a Chocobo to get from place to place over land and shallow waters. You cannot find Chocobo's everywhere in the world. They can only be found at one of the seven Chocobo Forests. They look similar to other forests, but they're dome-shaped. In order to ride a Chocobo, you first need to catch one and to do that, you must solve a puzzle in the forest you're visiting. After solving the puzzle, you can find hidden items that make it so you never need to solve the puzzle again. On this page, you can read everything about the Chocobo Forests in Final Fantasy VIII.
Your first Visit
Upon entering a Chocobo Forest for the first time, you will meet an interesting boy named Chocoboy (appropriately). He will give you a ChocoWhis and teach you how to use it for only 1000 Gil. It is actually a tool for locating the Chicobo, the baby Chocobo, in the forests. So pay the 1000 Gil and follow the instructions.
The ChocoWhis has two modes: ChocoSonar and ChocoZiner. You'll need the ChocoSoner to find Chicobo's and you'll need the ChocoSonar to actually lure out the mother Chocobo. As you search an area, the ChocoSonar will emit a soft ping and changes to a fast-pitched, louder ping when you're standing on the right spot where Chicobo's are. After finding such a spot, switch over to the ChocoZiner mode and blow it, which will cause one or more Chicobo's to drop from the trees or leave the ground into the trees. If you are not on the right spot, however, a Chicobo will steal your ChocoWhis and you need to buy a new one from the Chocoboy for 700 Gil.
Your goal to solving the puzzles is making sure there is only one Chicobo left. Because only then the mother Chocobo will appear because she's worried and you've caught the Chocobo, but only for a little while. It may take some time in some of the forests, since there may be a lot more Chicobo's, so sometimes, it'll take a pattern to get only one Chicobo.
When you've solved the puzzle, you're not done yet. You need to search the area for hidden items in the ground. If you've found it, the Chocobo's becomes your friend and will no longer hide from you when you enter their forest. Listen to the sound of the whistle again and when you think you found it, the Chocobo will search the ground. If you leave a forest without finding the hidden item or items, you must solve the puzzle again to get another Chocobo to show itself.
