• Can anyone tell me how I can obtain a Gold Chocobo in Final Fantasy VII(7)
    through the whole mating process not through the quest from that old man?
  • These aren't my words and i don't claim them to be. I hope that it helps.

    Q. How do I get a Gold Chocobo?
    A. Hold on...(runs and steals the little girl's Notebook)...okay...

    The Long Way to get a Gold Chocobo:
    1) You need to have a 'Good' chocobo and a 'Great' chocobo. One place you can find 'Good' chocobos is at the chocobo tracks southeast of the Gold Saucer. The 'Good' ones are the ones you encounter standing between 2 Spencer. A place you can find 'Great' chocobos is at the chocobo tracks northwest of Rocket Town. The 'Great' ones are the ones you encounter standing between 2 Valron.
    You can confirm what type of chocobo you catch when you get back to the chocobo stables. ChocoBilly will tell you what kind they are when you move them into the stables.

    2) Race the chocobos at the Gold Saucer until you get their level as high as you can. Feed them Greens to improve their abilities. The higher their levels are (C, B, A, or S), the better will be your chance of getting a new kind of chocobo.

    3) Save the game near the stables before you mate them. If you don't get the chocobo you want, reset the game and try again. Mate them, and use a Carob Nut. Carob Nuts are dropped or stolen from monsters near Bone Village. The monsters that carry them look like dinosaurs. They take a LONG time to kill, so it's easier to steal the Carob Nut and escape from the battle.

    4) After you mate the chocobos, you should have a Blue (River) chocobo or a Green (Mountain) chocobo. You'll need both chocobos to get a Black (Mountain-and-River) chocobo. Make sure one of them is born male, and the other one is born female. Race the Blue and Green chocobos at the Gold Saucer to get their levels up. Use a Carob Nut when you mate the Blue and Green chocobos.

    5) Get a 'Wonderful' chocobo. You can find one on the chocobo tracks in the snow to the west of Bone Village. The 'Wonderful' chocobos are the ones you meet with 1 or 2 Jumping (the rabbit monster). Feed them Greens until you get no improvement. Race the 'Wonderful' chocobo and the Black (Mountain/River) chocobo at the Gold Saucer to get their levels up.

    6) Mate the Black and 'Wonderful' chocobos. Use a Zeio Nut. You can get a Zeio Nut from a small island with a forest on it, to the east of the Chocobo Stables. Goblins carry the Zeio Nut. If all goes well, you should get a Gold Chocobo.
