Final Fantasy 13-2: Chocobo Racing Guide

Playing the ponies isn’t easy when you have to train the ponies yourself. That’s right, back by popular demand, FF7′s premiere mechanic is back. Chocobo Racing, for those too young, was a pastime where players would capture then take care of their chocobo on a farm in order to make them better at winning races. Well, things have changed just a tad in the 10+ years since FF7. If you’re in need of a primer, just browse below and feast your eyes and ears on the melodic feast that is Mitchell from our very own Game Front video team, which you can check out on their Youtube Channel!

if you find the gold chocobo and get it up to level 45 it is even better then the silver chocobo, he can be found in the dying would 700 AF

Thank you for sharing your wisdom about the Silver Chocobo.
Finaly I have all the variants of Chocobos in my game now.
I have infused my Silver Chocobo with severel other monstere’s qualities and it is pretty good now and have also won many reaces, hehe.
Thinking of Final Fantasy 7, I must admit I have a weak spot for the Gold Chocobo.

Gold Chocobo is found in Dying World 700 AF (It’s in the eastern half of the map, so you can get it even before you complete the story). It’s on the western side of the eastern half (if that makes any sense) inside of one of those special cube-chests. I found it just by chance today, and I love it!
