Rallen and his partner Jeena are determined members of the Nanairo Planetary Patrol (NPP). Their lives changed forever when they met a traveler from a distant galaxy named Aldous who foretold the coming invasion of the Krawl. Aldous discovered Rallen’s extraordinary ability to control Spectrobes and gave him a device known as a Prizmod to aid in defense against the monstrous Krawl.

Incredibly,, Rallen was successful in summoning an Ultimate Form Spectrobe to destroy the approaching Krawl. But now,, along with the appearance of mysterious portals,, the Krawl have returned and seem stronger than ever. A huge Krawl horde led by an unknown force has once again been destroying planets across the universe and Nanairo is next! Rallen and Jeena and their

friends at the NPP are the only ones able to save Nanairo from ultimate destruction!

2

Rallen

Rallen is an NPP officer. He heartily pursues justice to all ends and loves the rush of a good adventure,, especially while piloting his patrol cruiser. Rallen is gifted with the extraordinary ability to command Spectrobes using the Prizmod communication device. Using this power,, he was able to prevent the first Krawl invasion of Nanairo. As a Spectrobe Master,, he can even control Evolved and Ultimate Form Spectrobes. Rallen’s thrill-seekingways can

get him in trouble now and again,, but his integrity and special skills make him an undeniable asset to the NPP.

3

Jeena

Jeena is Rallen’s extremely intelligent and resourceful partner on the NPP. She is an expert at researching and analyzing data and provides critical informational support for Rallen. Her greatest skill is her keen ability to solve puzzles. She’s always watching over her partner to make sure he doesn’t ever find himself in too deep during their adventures.

Aldous

Aldous played a huge role in the previous defense against the invading Krawl. He has the ability to control some Spectrobes,, but is unable to manage the force of Evolved and Ultimate Form Spectrobes. Originally from a distant star system called Giorna,, Aldous is now helping the research scientists of the Nanairo system in their Spectrobe research.

Commander Grant

Commander Grant is the head of the NPP and serves as the commander of the resistance operation against the invading Krawl. He is a peacekeeper within the Nanairo System and is deeply trusted by his subordinates,, including Rallen and Jeena. He can be very stern,, but also displays a caring nature and level-headednessthat earns him a great deal of respect.

Rallen and Jeena,, your mission is to use your special abilities to preserve the Nanairo System from the Krawl onslaught. Pilot your patrol cruiser and search for Spectrobe fossils to excavate and awaken. Summon Child Spectrobes to aid you in the search. Raise your Spectrobes to defend Nanairo from the invasion of the atrocious Krawl.

4

5

Long thought extinct,, Spectrobes are the only natural enemy of the evil Krawl.

Spectrobe Forms

Fossil

Excavate fossilized Spectrobes that can then be awakened into Child Spectrobes.

Child

Child Form Spectrobes are too young to fight in a battle,, but can help find buried minerals and fossils.

6

Adult

Child Spectrobes evolve into Adult Spectrobes. After evolving,, Adult Spectrobes can no longer find fossils or minerals,, but they gain the ability to fight in battles.

Evolved

Once Adult Spectrobes evolve into their final form,, the Evolved Spectrobe,, they become masters of battle. Like Adults however,, they are unable to search for fossils and minerals.

7

Properties

Both Spectrobes and Krawl always belong to one of three different properties:

Each property has strengths and weaknesses. The properties possessed by your Spectrobes and the enemy Krawl affect how strong their attacks and defenses are against each other.

Saving and Ending a Game

There can only be one saved game at a time. The patrol cruiser’s save pod is used to save the game.

Enter the pod to activate it.

Select Yes to save your game.

If you unlocked any items in DGamer,, you’ll be notified of those items when saving. When the save is complete,, you can choose to go back to the Start screen,, continue with your current game or you can shut down the Nintendo DS.

13

Vortexes

Vortexes glow red,, green or blue,, depending on the property of the Krawl inside.

Red – Corona

Green – Aurora

Blue – Flash

It’s impossible to distinguish the characteristics of the Krawl within a purple vortex.

Large Vortex

The large vortex will remain in one place. Once inside the large vortex,, you will battle two or more waves of Krawl attacks. Until defeated,, the large vortex will continuously spawn enemies known as Krawl Dust that try to attack Rallen in the field. Defeating the large vortex will annihilate any small vortex and Krawl Dust in the area.

Small Vortex

The small vortex moves around the field area. Once inside the small vortex,, you will battle a single wave of Krawl. Defeating these Krawl will destroy the small vortex.

Tip: It’s very important to choose the right Spectrobes to go into battle with. The color of a vortex on the battlefield tells you the property of the Krawl inside. Make sure to bring Spectrobes that are strong against the property of the vortex before entering.

Field Battle

The field is one place that is never short of adventure!

Use your sword, glove and blaster to destroy the enemy Krawl.

Defeat Krawl Dust in the field to earn EXP and recovery orbs.

Experience Points

The experience points you earn by defeating Krawl Dust will allow

Rallen to achieve higher ranks. Rallen’s Blasters,, Swords and

14

15

Gloves all have rank requirements to equip them,, so it’s important to increase Rallen’s rank.

Energy Orbs

Collect recovery orbs to boost Rallen’s and the Spectrobes’ HP.

If Rallen’s HP falls to zero you will be returned to the entrance of the current field.

When you enter the large or small Vortex, an encounter battle with the Krawl within will begin.

During an encounter battle, you will command two Spectrobes in a battle against up to four Krawl.

Switch between Spectrobes during battle. The game AI will control the Spectrobe you are not controlling.

A Spectrobe with a full CH Gauge can revive a fallen one.

Once you eliminate all the Krawl within the vortexes, the battle is over and you will be returned to the field.

If all of your Spectrobes are defeated, you lose the battle. You will return to the field,, where the vortexes will remain.

At this point, each defeated Spectrobe will have only one HP. You can open the prizmod and use items to heal them.

Tip: Earn money,, items and experience points by defeating Krawl!

Tip: If you’re low on energy or want to keep exploring,, steer clear of Vortexes to avoid battles.

Spectrobe Attacks

Each Spectrobe has its own individual Normal Attack and Charge Attack (also known as CH Attack). Spectrobes can also perform a Combination Attack with a partner.

The types of Combination Attacks that a Spectrobe can use depend on their state of evolution and individual characteristics.

18

19

You must have enough CH energy stored to command the

Spectrobe to unleash a CH Attack or Combination Attack.

Finding buried fossils and minerals is one of your biggest priorities,, so enlist a Child Spectrobe to help you search for buried

objects everywhere you go. Minerals are very important because they contain Minergy to help you raise your Spectrobes.

20

How to Search

Once you have successfully defeated all the vortexes on the field,, the Child Form Spectrobe

you selected in your Line Up will appear and you can begin

searching for buried objects. Tap the Child Spectrobe or press the

Y Button to search for objects buried within your Spectrobe’s search radius.

21

Symbols

An excavation symbol will appear within the search range if there are fossils or minerals buried in the ground.

There are four types of treasures to unearth through excavation: fossils,, minerals,, cubes and mystery stones.

• Yellow - A Fossil

• Blue - A Mineral

• Rainbow - A Cube

• Pink - A Mystery Stone

22

Cubes

Cubes contain the secrets of the Spectrobes. These glimmering objects often contain helpful hints and tips as well. If you find a cube,, be sure to use the cube machine in the Patrol Cruiser’s Cargo Room to analyze it.

Minerals & Minergy

Minerals are good food for Spectrobes because Spectrobes use minergy to grow. Minergy is the powerful energy within minerals. Each mineral type has two elements:

-Property - Aurora,, Corona,, or Flash

-Shape - The shape of a mineral indicates the amount of minergy with it.

All minerals contain a certain amount of Minergy.

There are minerals that can change the color of a Spectrobe.

There are minerals that can adjust the number of levels, battles and minerals fed to the value needed to evolve.

23

Once your Child Spectrobe has located an excavation symbol,, walk into or touch the symbol to enter excavation mode. Then tap the Touch Screen with the stylus to dig through the layers of rock.

Once you reach the object,, clear away the obstructions using the drill and other tools. Blow into the microphone,, or use the Blower,, to clear away the debris as you continue to dig.

You can pick up the object by touching the “Pick

Up” icon once you’ve excavated 90% or more.

Tip: Use the scanner to retrieve information about buried objects,, including their shape.

Safe Digging

Be careful! Using excavation tools directly on a Spectrobe fossil after the ground is already excavated can damage it. Keep an eye on the damage meter on the top screen. Damaging a fossil too much during excavation will destroy it.

Fossils 100% excavated with no damage and within 60 seconds. are marked with a crown. Spectrobes that awaken from fossils with a crown mark can evolve into Adult Form without any minerals.

Successful Excavation

Earn experience points by completing the excavation process.

Your excavation level will increase after earning enough experience.

As your excavation level rises,, the chance of damaging buried objects decreases,, making it easier to earn even more experience points for successful excavation.

24

25

Secret Doors

Pay attention! If you see a hexagonal symbol in the place of an excavation symbol,, this is a sign there’s a secret door to a hidden map. To pass through,, you must have a Child Spectrobe with the opposing property (Corona,, Aurora or Flash) to pass through it.
