The Chocobo Forests located on the World Map

In Final Fantasy VIII there are seven Chocobo Forests. In each forest the player can catch a Chocobo by solving a series of puzzles involving chicobo. If you don't want to go through the process of catching the birds simply ask the resident Chocoboy to catch one for 1,200 Gil.

The puzzles involve spots where the player can make chicobos appear and disappear by whistling the ChocoZiner. The player can find these spots by using a ChocoSonar. When only one chicobo is out in the open a mother Chocobo will appear and the player can either mount her or have her assist in digging up hidden items that are within the forests. The items are found by using the ChocoSonar. When all the treasures are found the player can keep returning to the forest and a Chocobo will be waiting for them to mount, without having to entice them out first.

In the The Beginner's Forest, talk to Chocoboy after the mother Chocobo has appeared and you have acquired the treasure; he will give you Guardian Force Boko.

Challenge Chocoboy to a game of cards in the Forest of Solitude after the mother Chocobo appears. Then talk to him again and ask him to move: Chocoboy is standing on top of the buried treasure in this forest.

The Chocobo Sanctuary

After having befriended all of the Chocobos in the previous forests return to The Roaming Forest and take the chocobo for a ride. Head east through the Bika Snowfield, cross the shallow water and enter the Grandidi Forest to reach the Chocobo Sanctuary. This secluded forest cannot be reached by any other means. Here the player will witness the Dance of the Chocobos and the chicobo will offer a Chicobo Card. After that the player can buy Gysahl Greens from the chicobo.
