There's no such thing as having too many emblems. You don't need to worry, they'll show up eventually!

The plain chao colours are completely randomised.

Okay thanks, I'll keep a look out. :)

The Black Market has new products everytime you complete a stage (you have to finish the stage because entering and exiting doesnt work) so the best thing for you to do is go and do a short stage, check the black market and then repeat until the items you want is there. (i had to do this because for some reason the shop didn't want to give me any heart fruit)

Remember the only thing about the Black Market: It is RANDOM. The only way is to wait every 6 minutes. (if you see right now changes, here is the start counting), no matter where you are play the Stages, care your chao garden, even on Pause, even on MENU too. Except if you are outside OFF (minimize the game and do something other doing on Desktop) the game, then wouldn't work.

The same goes as Sonic DX.

On the ps3, the HD version is broken. Neither Purple, Pink, Yellow nor their shiny version will appear. Shiny Lime Green wont appear either. The Garden chao and the Black Market lists are only dependant on what character you enter it with, and not the inital file creation. I've tested it multiple times with different accounts on the ps3. Entering with sonic/shadow first, no matter how many emblems i entered with or which chao key i enter with or which frame I do it on, it will always generate the same Garden and Black Market list. Doesn't matter what account I use on my ps3.

Knuckles/Rouge and Tails/Eggman generate each a different list(each group, not each character). The lists are only random random in the surface and are generated from the begining of when you first enter the garden.

Say you have all emblems, and you start your chao save fresh. You go in with sonic/shadow (don't matter what level you entered from or what key you used), only one list will generate. For Example, you'll get a blue egg, brown egg, red egg, then on the next you'll get a white egg, a sky blue, and a lime green one. (these are not the exact eggs you'll get, but this is only an example). Ten you'll get another batch of eggs. These egg batches will ALWAYS be the same. You can use as many different accounts on the ps3 you want, delete as many times and you will always get the same eggs on both the garden and the black market lists. The only way you can change this list is by choosing to enter the garden with either Tails/eggman or knuckles/rouge for the first time. All 3 groups generate a different list, but NONE of these lists contain purple, pink, yellow, shiny lime green SO FAR. It is possible that yellow, pink, and purple eggs can appear on one of these lists, but I haven't refreshed the black market enough times. (each black market list has had only around 20 hours worth of refreshes (which is around 240 refreshes)). Having a different number of emblems only makes a different on the eggs already generate. getting one more emblem wont generate more eggs for you, it will only show eggs you couldn't purchase before.


That's all the testing i've done on the ps3 version.

The gamecube version does not have these RNG problems, because it works differently on that version


Things I don't know:
The exact amount of eggs generated per save(i didn't write everything down because i was more frustrated that i couldn't get pink eggs than anything).
I have not tested this on a second PS3, Xbox Live Arcade, Dreamcast, or Steam. I recall hearing that the dreamcast and hd RNG is identical, but i cannot give you a source on that so take it with a grain of salt.

Hopefully this can help you understand why you're not getting those eggs. It is possible that the steam, xbl arcade and ps3 versions all have the same RNG that generates the same eggs, but I cannot be certain unless I or someone else does more testing.

A way to fix this is to download the chao world extended mod. You don't have to worry about Black Market RNG. You will always have all the eggs unlocked.

I find it pretty infuriating because not only are jewel and character chao unobtainable, i can't even get my favorite color. I can't even make Shiny Two-Tone chao anymore because shiny two tone textures are broken and those chao are now known as "bright chao".

if you're really desperate, there's an external chao moddifier called fusion's chao editor. but it won't open the light or dark gardens.

just wait 5-10 minutes if you need more chao info visit the site http://chao.hippotank.com/ since you need info on the black market maybe this'll work :) http://chao.hippotank.com/sa2b/black-market
