To get Chao close is rather complicated, but it is one of the greatest feets of the game. Below, I will explain all you need to know about getting two Chao close. It is a very deep and intriguing proces, so if you don't feel like putting some time to get your Chao happier, than skip this section and do somethin' else.
Starting the Relationships
The first part is not hard, nor easy. You will first have to get two Chao (duh) and put them next to each other. How? The friendship should start as babies. Let them both learn some instruments. When one plays an instrument, get the other and put in near the Chao, and if it learned an instrument, it will start to play. If it doesn't, it will just watch. Make sure they do this frequently; this is just a minor step in getting the relationship started.
Make sure they have a TV or other toys in the Garden already. When one goes to turn on the TV, pick up the other and put it next to the other Chao that it's friends with. ?If it doesn't watch TV with the other Chao, they haven't spent enough time together.
Adultery and Growth
The second part is cruel and harsh. Obviously, one Chao will be older than the other. This means one Chao will evolve before the other. This is a very sad time, because the Chao that evolved won't like the Chao it was friends with until that Chao evolves. Until then, just seperate them. Now make the Chao that was friends with the other Chao into the same type (Hero, Dark, Neutral) and put them in the same Garden. Now, you should let them do the stuff they normally did and let them get used to it.
Once they are close to each other again, it's time for them to mate. Buy a couple of Heart Fruit and have them mate. Two times. Now, do all the steps with the babies as you did with these Chao, they are brothers/sisters. Put them in the Garden with the mother and father. Have them mate and do all the stuff they like to do -- and never get rid of the kids.
The harshest of the three steps, reincarnation/death will make the other Chao sad. Now, when one reincarnates, the other will feel lonely, but this is just a cycle. The Chao that reincarnates is going to remember it's friend -- but not it's kids. Now, put the egg into a different Garden, and wait for the other Chao to reincarnate. Hatch them both, and repeat the process of friendship.
The 2nd + 3rd Lives
This is when stuff starts to get serious. Once in a while, your Chao will that were friends will start walking together. They will sleep together. This is the best sign you can get -- they are now best friends. Do this with them until they become Chaos Chao and they won't go anywhere without each other! It is extremely cute, and now, you should feel very proud, you acquired a big feet that is cool. Do it with a lot of Chao.
Jealousy and Fighting
Sometimes, Chao become friends with other Chao, and the Chao that was friends with the Chao that made a new friend will get jealous. Now, the jealousy becomes a HUGE problem in a relationship. Sometimes, the Chao that was friends with the Chao that made a new friend will fight the Chao's new friend. You must stop this by punishing them; even though it might be mean. Now, in order for the Chao not to fight again, you must seperate one of them from teh Chao that was friend's with both. It may be harsh -- but you have to, or things will get ugly.
Welcome to the Chao Bands section! In this section, I will show you how to make Chao Bands. Chao Bands are Chao that have played instruments, and have learned them, and are capable of having three or four Chao in a band at once. First, you must have at least three Chao in a band. Get three Chao to learn instruments. Then, when one wants to play an instrument, get the other Chao that know how to play instruments, and bring them to that Chao. Those Chao will start playing instruments. It's really that simple! If you want advanced Chao Bands, keep reading. Otherwise, go try out the new strategy I gave you.
ADVANCED CHAO BANDS
Now that we have the Chao Bands covered, let's try making a Chao Chorus with your band. A complete band has eight Chao. This might be hard. Now, get four Chao and take them to kindergarten to learn instruments. Different kinds, too. Then, take four Chao to learn songs. Take them about four times. Once you've done that, when a Chao starts playing an instrument, get every Chao over there. You will have Chao that are playing instruments, and Chao that are singing! You've made what is called a "Complete" band. It really is that simple. Here are some bands that I have heard of that you might want to check out, they're MY bands!

|Reincarnation + Death
There is a time when Chao die. When Chao are 5 years old (15 hours), they will form a grey cocoon and they will die. However, if you were very, VERY special to them, they will form a pink cocoon and live another life (and so on and soforth). Reincarnating Chao is not only nice to do, it is required to get Chao like the Crystal Chao, the Chaos Chao and other rare Chao that you can't get by just having it live for one life.
When a Chao reincarnates, all of it's stats go back to level one, and it keeps a lot of it's animal parts. If it was a Hero Chao, it will have little ears coming from it's head already. For Dark Chao, it will be darkish and will have that spike on the back. It will also like the same master that it liked the most in it's past life. Pretty cool, huh?
To keep your Chao alive and not die, just follow some strict and simple (yes, at the same time), guidelines.
-Never throw your Chao
-Never attack your Chao
-Bring it to the doctor when it is sick
-Keep your Chao well-fed
-When your Chao wants attention, pet it or hold it and snuggle it
-Give it it's favorite fruit once in a while (not too much, or it will get to be a spoiled punk)
-When your Chao is drowning, take it out
-Don't make it jealous by giving another Chao too much attention
If you just follow these rules, your Chao will be sure to live a long life and will reincarnate many times (I think there is a limit to how many times a Chao can reincarnate, but I ain't sure...).
