The Black Market is a shady place located in the corner of the Chao Kindergarten where you can buy items for your Chao, or other things for your game. You buy them with rings that you collect from playing the main game. Every time you play the game, the rings you collect on stages will be added to your ring total for you to spend.
Originally the Black Market was only accessible online via the in-game web-browser! From here you could download rare Chao provided you had earned enough Emblems in your main game. This was verified by uploading your save file to the webpage. Below are the full list Chao that were available until the closure of the online services, along with the accompanying text that was displayed.
|Black Chao||Free||This Chao’s color is black by nature. It may become a Hero Chao with a black color…?|
|Silver Chao||5 Emblems||This Chao shines silver. It seems like a metal, but the touch feels like pudding or marshmallow :)|
|Gold Chao||10 Emblems||This Chao shines golden. We recommend this Chao to the breeders who like a showy appearance.|
|Ruby Chao||20 Emblems||This Chao shines crimson like a ruby. It will be prominent at the garden !|
|Sapphire Chao||20 Emblems||This Chao shines blue like a sapphire. It looks so cool !|
|Amethyst Chao||20 Emblems||This Chao shines purple like an amethyst. It’s a mystic Chao.|
|Emerald Chao||20 Emblems||This Chao shines green like an emerald. It’s glaring green !!|
|Moon Chao||30 Emblems||A very rare Chao has appeared ! It shines like a romantic moon.|
In all other version of the game, the Black Market became an independent room accessible without the need of the internet. Chao items and other products are made available in exchange for Rings that you collect from the main game. The Black Market will display items at random, but will increase the variety of items as you collect more Emblems in the single player game.
While playing, you may notice that certain eggs never appear no matter how much you wait or how many emblems you collect. This is because when your Chao save-game is created there will be three colours (plus the shiny version) that will never appear!
There are three “sets” of Chao eggs. Each containing 3 colours and their shiny versions.
- Set 1 is Red, Sky Blue, Brown
- Set 2 is Yellow, Pink, Purple
- Set 3 is Blue, Orange, Green
The Black Market will always sell two of these sets, and will never sell the one left out. This is randomly selected for every Chao File.
*An important thing to note, is if one of of thes sets is seen in the Black Market - the next set colours will only start appearing after you have obtained at least 100 emblems.
On the PC version of Sonic Adventure 2, there is a bug where only Set 1 and Set 3 will be sold in the Black Market because its random selection doesn’t work properly. That means the Yellow, Pink, and Purple eggs will never appear!
