How to Breed and Capture Chocobos


First of all, capturing a Chocobo is very easy.

  • All you have to do is get close enough to one to capture it.
  • Most, if not all, Chocobos are impossible to catch on foot.
    • You need to ride a Chocobo of your own to move fast enough to capture.

You can start breeding in Chapter 2

  • Talk to the NPC near the stables to breed.
  • Must have a male and female, choose one of each.
  • You can also choose to use some type of Greens when breeding, but it is not required.
  • Some breeds need certain types of greens though.


Below is a list of each type of Greens.

  • Gyashl Greens – Increase chance of a different type of Chocobo.
  • Krakka Greens – Greatly increases chance of a different type of Chocobo.
  • Tantal Greens – Makes the Chocobo the same as the father.
  • Pahsana Greens – Makes the Chocobo the same as the mother.
  • Mimett Greens – Increases chances of getting a good Chocobo.
  • Reagan Greens – Greatly increases chances of getting a good Chocobo.
  • Sylkis Greens – Maximum increase of chance of getting a good Chocobo.
  • Curiel – Increases the number of Chocobos born.
  • Gyzahl – Greatly increases the number of Chocobos born.
