All Final Fantasy IX Chocograph Locations

Finding these treasures is a bit tedious. Here are some tips to use when scanning the area for the treasure using the map in the photo above:

  • The Chocograph's location (photo) should be on top of the mini-map for the Chocograph to spawn.
  • If you don't have the required ability to get to the Chocograph, it will be greyed out in the menu.
  • "Kweh" means you and your Chocobo are nowhere near the location in the photo of the Chocograph Location.
  • "Kweh!?" and "Kwehhh!?" means you're near the treasure but not yet standing on top of it.
  • "K-KWEHHHH!!!" means you're on top of the treasure.

As such, I encourage you to hunt for these Chocographs; doing so will immediately boost your party's strength and defenses.
