Viva Pinata

Cheats, Tips & Secrets for Viva Pinata on Xbox 360

You must create a new garden titled "chewnicorn."

Go to Lottie's shop (a.k.a., 'The Costalot') and buy one Venus Pinata Trap and plant it in the center of your garden.

Since it is a weed you do not need to water it. Once it is fully grown, your pinatas will cluster around the flower and they will knock down the flower heads.

You must quickly collect and sell the flower head -- if you are not quick enough the pinatas will eat the flower. Each flower head sells for 360 chocolate coins. Not only that, but the plant produces multiple flowers making roughly about 15,000 coins for a seed costing you 55 coins. If you manage to repeat this, you're able to gain 100,000 coins in mere a half-hour.

You must be careful about your pointer. It's easy to accidently sell pinatas instead of the flower heads. This in addition to the flower pinata being dangerous as it will spit acid spores at adjacent pinatas and make them sick.

This means you have to constantly manage the Venus Pinata Trap, but once you amassed your fortune, you can go ahead and clear the weed.

You can also do a similar thing with flower heads from Poison Ivy (just strike Seedos instead of making a purchase).

If you want to attract a certain Pinata, go to your Pinata Encyclopedia inside your journal for hints.

If you want a blue candary, you need to give your sparrowmint a buttercup. Next you have to feed your candary a bluebell and it will turn blue.

Enter chewnicorn as a name for a new garden. Five bonus accessories will be available at the Pet shop.

Enter Bullseye as a name for a new garden to will unlock new items that your Pinatas can wear.

Enter goobaa as a name for a new garden to will unlock new items that your Pinatas can wear.

Enter Kittyfloss as a name for a new garden to unlock YMCA Gear.

Player has healed a Piata with the Chewnicorn's power.

You need to be around level 30 for this one (to buy the items needed), but this should solve most or all of your money woes.

Talk to Seedos a few times and eventually he will throw you the 'Bird of Paradise' seed. After you get this seed, it will be unlocked in Costolot's store for 55 coins.

Simply start a new garden, buy and plant as many of these seeds as you can, make sure to water them, and use Ivor's special mix fertilizer on them thrice. Note that if you do not water the plants, they die.

I suggest using the one pour wonder watering can also available in Ivor's shop. When they grow to maturity sell those suckers for 1400 chocolate coins each. Taking time out gain a 1345 coin profit will pretty much leave you sitting pretty after a few dedicated hours.

You can improve on this technique by doing the following:

1. Buy up to 9 Birds of Paradise seeds from Costolot's (range from 55-80 CC each).

2. Plant them fairly close together in 2 rows so that you can get at least 4 flowers in one dose of fertilizer.

3. Use Ivor Bargain's special mix fertilizer and position your cursor in the middle of a cluster of flowers. This way you'll have to use it 1/4 as much as if they were more spread out. You should only have to use this between 6-7 total times to get all 9 flowers fully catalyzed (ormally about 27 times).

4. As long as you have a good watering can, or Sprinkles then you won't have to worry about them. Go about your business, and come back in approximately 5 minutes to see them fully grown.

5. Now, instead of just selling them outright, take out your shovel and 'tap the flower' using X on your controller. Everytime you tap the flower, a flowerhead and a seed comes out. Each fully catalyzed flower will produce 4 flowerheads + 4 seeds.

Each flowerhead sells for 360 CC, which times 4 is 1440 CC (the amount you'd get if you just sold the whole flower by itself), plus now you have 4 seeds which you can sell for about the same you bought them for.

This time sell all flowerheads and seeds keeping as many seeds as you would like to reproduce, so you won't have to buy them again from Costolot's store.

If you chose to do all 9 flowers, and reproduce 9 seeds each time, then you'll have a net gain of app. 14,400-15,500 CC's every 5 minutes!

Player has hatched an egg using the Cluckles.

Player has attained full bonus growth for a plant using the Cocoadile tears.

Made 5 species resident.

Simply drop a BlueBell Seed on the floor, and get your Quackberry to eat it (it will now become blue.) | Submitted by campo940

First talk to Seedos multiple times to get tons of seeds. Plant and sell them for about 200 choco-coins. This triggers a visit from Taffly. Buy a torch light and ignite the Taffly; immediately use a watering can to douse the fire and the Taffly will turn into a RedHott. RedHotts sell for 2100 choco-coins.

Once you get the Hunter, buy express Taffliess for 600 each and turn them into RedHotts through the immolation method.

Player has distracted Dastardos with the Crowla.

Employ a Diggerling.

A Dragonache egg is obtained by digging in a mine using the Diggerling. You then send a Cluckles to the egg to hatch it into a Dragonache. It only worked for me 1 time out of 3 tries, so don't think it will be easy (the Cluckle is pretty stubborn). The egg has to be on a paved surface before the Cluckes will hatch it.

First, make sure you have lots of money, which can be made by using the Chili growing tip.

Next, put Gretchem Fetchem to work by having her find whatever pinata you want expressely. In a half hour you can easily have 7 of a species. I recommend Taffly's, Flutterscotchs, and Sparrowmints first, for evolving reasons.

If you get 7 sparrowmints, you get the master romancing award for them, then make all of them eat a butterscotch flowerhead, they all become candaries, and you get the MR award for them as well.

Same with Tafflys, get 7, get the award, then make them go through the garden torch one by one, and put them out with a water can once they are on fire, this will give you 7 red-hotts, the MR award for them, and they well for 2100 each.

Also, get 7 white flutterscotchs and evolve them to whatever you want. I evolved them to yellow by making them eating butterscotchs.

Another easy method is using the 7 paper pets from the Paper pet lady, check out, go back to the garden, get all the rewards, then sell them all. Do this with every animal she has for easy levels and master romancing awards.

At the General Store, purchase the Chili Seed. You can plant a maximum of ten. Place four in a cluster, twice. Then just plant the other two close to one another.

Next, buy the Red Fertilizer. If the chili seeds are close enough, you can douse four at the same time. So get each group of Chili Seeds three times.

Just let the plants grow out. Each Chili Seed will be worth $400 Chocolate Coins. $4,000 in total.

When you have two Tafflies, buy a torch, then direct them to the torch they will start on fire, when you can, put them out with the watering can. They will become Reddhotts. Romance the Reddhotts and sell the kid for an easy $2,100. Keep repeating however many times you want.

For the Badgesicle evolution, have it swim in water and it will turn into a Sweettooth.

For the Syrupent evolution, romance two Syrupent's and when the egg come it will start moving. Hit it with your shovel and a Twigersnap will hop out of the egg. Make two Twigersnaps then romance them and do the same thing to the egg, this time a Fourhead will come out of the egg.

For the Pretztail evoloution, grow some carrots in your garden to attract Bunnycombes. Get at least two to become residents (feed bunnycombes carrots). The Bunnycombes should attract Pretztails. So when a pretztail comes in your garden, let it eat a bunnycombe and it will become a resident. Do this again so you will have two pretztails. Now go to Lotties' shop ('Costalot shop') and buy a doughnut. Feed it to one of the two Pretztails and it should turn into a Mallowolf.

For the Tafflie evolution, buy a torch when you have two Tafflies, then direct them to the torch they will start on fire, when you can, put them out with the watering can. They will become Reddhotts. Romance the Reddhotts and sell the kid for an easy $2,100. Keep repeating however many times you want.

For the Sparrowmint evolution, feed a Sparrowmint a buttercup and it will evolve into a Candary.

For the Horstacio evolution, feed it daisies or blackberriess and it will evolve!

For the Quackberry evolution, feed it a gooseberry and it will evolve!

For an alternative Candary color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternative Whirlim color, feed it a turnip and it will turn purple.

For an alternate Sherbat color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternative Pudgeon color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternate Sparrowmint color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternate Shellybean color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternate Newtgot color, feed it a bluebell and it will turn blue.

For an alternate White Flutterscotch color, feed it a poppy flower will change its color to red. Feeding it a watercress flower will change its color to green. Feeding it a bluebell flower will change its color to blue. Feeding it a water lily flower will change its color to pink. Feeding it a bullrush flower will change its color to brown. Feeding it a buttercup flower will change its color to yellow. Feeding it a bird of paradise flower will change its color to orange. Feeding it a thistle will change its color to purple. Feeding it a tulip flower will change it to black.

There are eight possible evolutions which are:

Twingersnaps (evolves from Syurpent)
Fourheads (evolves from Twingersnap)
Candary (evolves from Spearowmint)
Redhott (evolves from Taffly)
Lackatoad (evolves from Lickatoad)

Get the Tower of Sour to have 6 pieces.

Reach Level 50.

Simply press 'X' and choose the Tower of Sour (Up-Right). You can remain here for as long as you like without ever having to worry about a prompt coming up asking you about a pinata request or anything else. Note that your garden will still be in play, and your pinata are likely to get eaten, so this works best on gardens without valuables. This makes getting the 50 hour real-time achievement much easier and faster.

Make a Chewnicorn eat a bird of paradise, tulip and a rainbow gem and you'll get a Pegususo.

Cross romancing a Swanana and a Rashberry.

1. Get a Pinata with non-expensive Resident requirements (as in you do not have to spennd a lot of money to get it).
2. Whack the Pinata with your shovel (and gaurd the candy).
3. There will be one special candy, the pinata's life candy. Sell it, it's worth 4 more coins than the pinatady Trick (you can also sell the other candy for more money).

Named a Piñata.

One Piñata worth 5,000 chocolate coins.

One Piñata worth 10,000 chocolate coins.

I have something that may help everyone out a lot at becoming a money god. If you see the beggar don't hurt him, just give him about 1000 coins everytime you see him until he opens up a shop.

Once that happens make sure the lady at the general store is selling orchid seeds in the seed catagory. Buy a bunch of orchid seeds and plant them in the ground. Then go to the beggar's shop and use his secret fertilizer (it's the best in the game) and use it 3 times on each orchid.

In the end it should turn out to be a huge plant which sells for 1800 each (and it grows very fast). I have 300,000 coins and got it all in about 20 to 30min. Make sure that as soon as you plant them you water them then use the fertilizer as the plants are growing.

To get a Lackatoad, it is quite a process. First get a Lickatoad from Gretchen Fetchem's or the old fashion way, get a Taffly and feed it to a Lickatoad that comes in your garden.

Once you get the Lickatoad, get a Nightshade Berry from Lottie's Store. Feed it to the Lickatoad. It will stand there, after it eats it, and make wierd noises. If you let it make these noises for too long, it will get sick.

So, when it is making the noises, tap it with the shovel. Note: TAP. Do not WHACK it. If you whack it, it will ruin the whole process and make it sick.

It will say you have a new Lackatoad resident before it transforms. Don't wory about that. With every pinata that need to transform from another, it says it earlier then the transformation itself.

For it to romance you need to have four Arocknids in the garden. You must have 60 square pinometers of water(6%). You must feed it two toadstools and you must have a Lackatoad house in the garden.

The Lackatoad house is a spilled bottle of purple poison. The dance is them dancing in a big green puddle. The Lackatoad itself is purple with an orange tongue.

Use the Red Fertilizer on a growing chili plant to increase its value and size.
