Chocobo Forests are locations in FInal Fantasy VIII where you can solve puzzles for various prizes. There are a total of seven forests throughout the game. If a puzzle is solved correctly the player will be able to ride a chocobo on the world map and be given prizes that vary from forest to forest. If the player doesn’t want to solve the puzzle they can pay the resident chocoboy to catch a chocobo for 1,200 give. However catching a chocbo in this way will not allow you to have access to the prizes.
Catching a chocobo in the Steam version earns the player the achievement “Chocobo”.
Solving the puzzles involves making chicobos appear and disappear with the ChocoZiner until there is only one Chicobo left on the map. The player can find the spots where Chicobos are hidden by using the ChocoSonar. When there is only one chicobo left on the map the player can click on the chicobo which will make a sound and its mother will come out of the forest. At this point you can either ride the chocobo on the world map or use the chocobo to dig up hidden treasure. Each map has one spot with hidden treasure. The treasure can be found using the ChocoSonar. When you have found the treasure on the specific map the chocobo will be waiting for you next time you enter the forest without having to solve the puzzle again.
Chocbo Forests are an optional part of the game. They can also be done in any order. Anytime after completing the first puzzle you can talk to Chocoboy and he will give you the Guardian Force Boko for the Chocobo World game.
