1. My purpose for this update

Ok, I admit my last FAQ. for Mario Tennis sucked, but, I received e-mails 
from one specific person that was so annoying, I couldn't take it anymore. 
He bothered me everyday saying all of my walkthroughs sucked, and yet, I 
receive good comments from people everyday telling me "Good walkthrough, 
nice job." Doesn't look like there is no pleasing this person, so this FAQ. 
is just for you, and you know who you are you ANNOYING LITTLE ----! Alright, 
but if any of you want to view my other walkthroughs and faqs. tell me what 
you think:

Goldeneye 007 (N64)
Super Smash Brothers (N64)
Mario Golf (N64)
Paper Mario (N64)
The Sims (PC)
The Sims Livin' Large (PC)
The Sims House Party (PC)
Space Channel 5 (DC)

My e-mail address is listed above, please tell me what you think of them. 
And tell me if you think they suck or they are good, because that low-life 
person didn't like them.


2. Characters

Mario (All around) - A player for a beginner or an average player. He has ok 
speed, and ok hitting.

Luigi (All around) - Almost the same as Mario, I can't really tell a 
difference.

Toad (Technical Precision) - My favorite character, he has good speed, and 
ok hitting. I do really good with him, he's is a good player for a beginner 
or an average player.

Peach (Technical Precision) - Another good player to begin with. She has 
good speed and can get to the ball fine, but she can lack strength.

Daisy (Technical Precision) - Almost the same as Peach. I can't really tell 
much difference here either.

Waluigi (Technical Precision) - A good player for a beginner. He has pretty 
good strength, and doesn't have trouble getting to the ball when hitting.

Yoshi (Speed) - Good runner, but ok at hitting.

Birdo (Speed) - A fast dinosaur! Ok at hitting.

Baby Mario - Runs fast, but not that good at hitting.

Wario (Power) - Good strength, but can lack speed.

Bowser (Power) - Good hitting, but terribly slow.

Donkey Kong (Power) - Good hitting, a little slow.

Paratroopa (Tricky) - A tricky hit, and good speed.

Boo (Tricky) - A very tricky hitter, and ok speed.

Look at the secret characters section for the other characters and about 
them.


3. Tournament

One of the funnest parts of the game. You do three courts and go against a 
series of players. Here are the courts:

Mushroom Cup (Blue Court)
Difficulty - Very Easy
End Boss (Most of the time) - Mario

This court is very simple. All the opponents are simple to beat.

Flower Cup (Clay Court)
Difficulty - Medium
End Boss (Most of the time) - Mario

This court can be tough, because of the clay. The bounce of the ball isn't 
to high, so make sure you keep an eye on it. The players you go against are 
a little bit tougher.

Star Cup (Grass Court)
Difficulty - Hard
End Boss (Most of the time) - Bowser

This court starts out a little tough, but as you go along, the opponents are 
tougher. Bowser, the last boss is tough, and getting the ball past him isn't 
to easy, so make sure you have some good skills before you go against him.

If you have any questions or need any tips, you can e-mail me! My address is 
listed above!


4. Singles/Doubles

You can play with your friends, or the computer. I think playing with your 
friends is more fun, but it's up to you. You can choose the courts you want 
to play in, and how many sets. There are also some secret courts you can 
get, and you can go to the Game-Revolution codes page for this game and 
learn how to get all of them.

Singles - Singles is where you go against one other opponent. You can play 
with a friend, or the computer.

Doubles - This is where you and another person go against two other people. 
I think this is more fun. You can play with your friends, or the computer.

Have fun!


5. Ring Shot

Pretty fun, but you can't earn anything from it! Just victory! I would think 
you would at least win something for it. You can do singles/doubles on it, 
too, which is pretty cool.


6. Secret Characters

Believe it or not, but there are only two secret characters in this game! 
Here they are:

Donkey Kong Jr. (Power) - Just like Donkey Kong, but seems like Jr. is a 
little bit faster.
How to get him: Beat the tournament mode under singles.

Shy Guy - (Technical Precision) - When he hits the ball, his voice gets 
really annoying, but a good player, but can be slow at running to the ball.
How to get him: Beat the tournament mode under doubles.


7. Other Secrets

Know about the stars for your players? If you would play tournament mode 
with Mario, and you beat it, by pressing the R button while selecting him, a 
star will be by it, which means you can get a more powerful hit when 
serving!

Remember, all the secrets, well, most of them, are at the codes section at 
Game-Revolution!


8. Ending

Thanks for reading my Mario Tennis FAQ.! I know it wasn't the greatest, but 
there isn't much to mention about this game, after all, it is a tennis game.

If you have any questions or anything, my e-mail address is listed above, 
but I will also list it down here:

luckycat37@hotmail.com

Bye! Thanks again!

                         ~Thanks Game-Revolution!~
