Keep in mind that i havent hooked up to XBL on my main account in a few days so when i get back on it will update the pinata score
General Suggestions

* When you create a new garden, the last thing you want to do is spend the first 45 minutes smacking hard dirt. Go to the post office, buy a shipping create, and use that as your shovel (Picking up crate and placing it over hard dirt). This cuts about 20 minutes off your land preparation time. Later in the game, once you can buy a big house (the elephanilla house is best), ship that to yourself and 'unpack' then 'undo' five or six times to do the whole garden!

* To plant grass faster don't forget to switch to 'fast cursor' mode by clicking down on the Left stick.

* Try not to overwater your plants and vegetables. You want a balance of half-blue (wet), half-white (dry), on the Water Meter. If you overwater a plant, leaving it alone for a while will allow the excess water will drain off over time.

* If you have a Sprinkling helper, a good time to plant things is right before dawn. If you finish your planting around 6-7:00am game time, the sprinkling will show up first thing in the morning, and help you water the new plants all day. By the end of the day they should sprout without you having to worry too much about how much water they are getting. If you plant right after dark and expect your helper to do the watering, they will be dried out in the 12 or so hours it will take for her to show up.

* Just because it's nighttime in your garden, it doesn't mean that you can sleep. Some predators, like the Pretztail, like to hunt and eat other species at night. Some species, like the Mothdrop, will only romance at night.

* If you are having problems with Ruffians or Professor Pester, then you should buy a Captain's Cutlass from Ivor Bargain. It will keep them both out of your garden.

* If you have a Chewnicorn you can use it to heal sick Pinata by making it go to the sick Pinata.

Piņata Advice

* Hitting or breaking a piņata with your shovel might be fun, but it will have consequences. A piņata of that same species may be afraid to come to your garden.

* You can increase pinata's happiness by giving it an accessory to wear. (Some accessories also prompt a piņata to perform routine tasks on its own, such as a Goobaa getting shorn.)

* If you have an ill pinata, call the Doctor as soon as possible. If you wait and the doctor cannot make it in time, Dastardos will come and smash the ill piņata. There are several ways to prevent this: Firstly, you can purchase a Halo of Hardness for 2,700 chocolate coins. Also, a shovel upgrade becomes available at Rank 20 for 3,150 chocolate coins that will stop Dastardos in his tracks.

* It's better to tame Sour Piņatas than break them. Each tamed Sour has a helpful trait (stopping fights, scaring off Sours, etc.). They don't drop candy when broken open. They will, however, drop sour candies as they roam your garden if not tamed or disposed of. Any candies dropped can be destroyed with a single swat of the shovel. Your piņatas will voluntarily eat sour candies and become ill. I have found that the apple seed works on the shellybean and that a jack-o-lantern works on a sherbat, just plave theses items in front of them to get them to eat it and become tame.

* When creating a new species from an existing resident, it's helpful not to change your only resident species into a different species. Wait for a second one to become a resident, then romance them first, so you will have some of both species. (Also a lil bonus hint Go to Ivon and buy his coin finder, it is a shovel add-on
that way when you are just wandering around your garden you will here a noise like a metal detector going off, find the strongest signal and dig a hole and boom..... lots of money for you or candy.)

* Simply renaming a piņata can make it happier.

* If you have a Cocoadile, it is possible use its tears instead of fertilizer, to do so, direct it to a plant with . This also unlocks an achievement.

* If there is a species that is visiting at unwanted-times, try hitting it with your shovel to break it and that species will be reluctant to return for about the next few days

Strategies

* A little forethought in how you want your garden to look will help avoid problems like cramped habitats, or traffic jams as Piņatas and Helpers travel around from spot to spot.

* A good plan for the player who likes to sell and trade their pinatas is to surround their houses with a fence. That way you keep all your species organized. Just make sure while fencing them in that you give them adequate space so they don't get sick.

* A Piņata's value will increase as it returns from parties, eats candies and/or adds new accessories.

* Don't let your bigger piņatas trample your smaller ones. It makes them sad.

* A Tower of Sour will help keep unwanted sours out of your garden. As you tame each species of sour piņata, you will receive another section to add to the tower. Each section may be turned on or off, and when on they will prevent that sour species from ever returning. You can also buy Tower of Sour segments from Costolots General Store in the garden items section.

* If your piņata is too depressed to eat a happy/joy sweet, go to Paper Pets and buy it an accessory. This should cheer it up enough to respond to your commands. The more accessories you buy it, the happier it becomes.

* If your piņata is in its home you can tap the house and it will come out. This is especially useful when you need a Chewnicorn to heal a sick piņata before Dastardos gets them.

* Pinata Central will send you a factory request within minutes of creating a new garden. Usually it is a request for a "Single-Preferably a more valuable piņata". So just send 1 of your more valuable piņatas to yourself via the Post Office, and do the Challenge. This will raise the value of your piņata. Then just keep repeating.

* If you want quick master romancer awards, get a pinata that can be evolved, e.g. Quackberry, Sparrowmint, Newtgat etc. master romance the first species, then evolve all seven, for quick master romancer awards. If you do them all, you should get 5 awards, enough to tame a sour Macaraccoon and get an achievement.

* If you have enough money, buy seven of each pinata in the pet shop to get easy master romancer awards for each. (Note: If you sell them afterwards, you won't get the same amount back.)

* If you can afford to don't sell any pinatas that are excess to your requirements. Instead post them to yourself in the post office (no need to be on Xbox live to do this) and you can retrieve them, if necessary, to attract other pinatas, without needing to use Gretchen Fetchem.

* To minimize fights and sick pinatas, grow weeds in another garden and harvest the flowers or tinker them, (toadstools to mushrooms) and post them to yourself in the the post office (no need for Xbox live) and use them as needed in the other gardens.

* Trees and other garden items such as homes and statues can also be posted to yourself in the post office (Xbox live not required) to be used as necessary. This can minimise the time required to romance or attract a new species.

* You can have as many gardens as you can fit on your memory device. You're able then to separate species that don't get on together, ensure there's enough room for larger animals and fulfill water, grass or long grass requirements easily.

Making Money

* Grow Plants
o Pumpkins and Chili peppers are two of the best. Both have inexpensive seeds and the produce sells for many more chocolate coins.
o Poison Ivy: Create a new garden. Plant poison ivy seeds. No need to water!. When the plants mature, they will produce green flower heads and seeds. Sell the flower heads for 100 CC each and replant the seeds. You can rapidly fill the garden. Whack any stunted plants to remove them and make room for more. Warning: don't expect to keep healthy piņatas in this garden.
o Venus Piņata Trap: Create a new garden. Plant Venus Piņata Trap seeds. No need to water!. When the plants mature, they will produce yellow flower heads and red seeds. Sell the flower heads for 360 CC each and replant the seeds. When seeds exceed the needed amount, they can be sold for 79 CC You can rapidly fill the garden. Whack any stunted plants to remove them and make room for more. Warning: don't expect to keep healthy piņatas in this garden.
o Most Valuable Flowers become available at higher levels. These include the Bullrush, Bird of Paradise, Snapdragon, and Orchid flowers. Orchids are worth the most.
o Dig Holes for seeds to make them grow faster -- this means a faster payoff for you.
o Fertilizing flowers (up to three times) makes more flowers per stalk. Fertilizing produce produces bigger, more valuable produce.
+ You can plant produce in tight bunches in order to fertilize several plants with each dose of fertilizer. Some flowers (such as Orchids) will be stunted if you plant them this close.
o Harvest Fruit before selling a tree. You'll get a little more money if you sell the fruit separately.
o Get coins from dead stalks after you tap a flower to separate the seed and flower

* Sell Resident Piņatas: You can always make money by selling the piņatas that you have made resident. You'll attract more later.

* Evolving a piņata makes it worth more money. Evolving a Taffly into a Reddhott to sell is one of the faster ways to make money early in the game.

Keep in mind folks that i have alot more to put up here for you, but hey give me a lil time!!!!! i have everything you need to know on the species also and easy ways to make alot of money!!!! see you soon!!! happy gaming
