Now it's time to present the most important part of this guide. We gathered here information about each and every one species available in the game. Under a pinata name you'll find its original - real animal which was a prototype for paper creature. Then there is information about base value of one representative of given species, its housing cost and, last but not least, its appear, visit, resident and romance requirements.

Most pinatas have color variants achieved by feeding them with specific plants or products. Some of them have also natural enemies which they will be fighting with. Information about all that can be found below as well.

I've had Badgescicles for a really long time. I have 6 gardens, 5 with pinatas in and 1 I use to attract pinatas. I changed some of my Badgesicles red by feeding them apples! I still think Badgesicles are cute when they're red but I prefer them in their original colours. I had five - 2 original coloured and 3 red. Eventually I sold the red ones because my garden was becoming overcrowded. I find your garden becomes overcrowded when your pinata have 2 or more offspring. My advice to all you pinata fans would be to only let your pinatas have 2 or more offspring if you're trying to become a Master Romancer in a certain species.

Hello if anybody wants a pinata add me at LibertyNow and I can also send you the money for that pinata's house! But note most likely keep you as a friend, so make sure you ask for all the pinata's you need! Also if you truly need it I can TRY only try to send the romance requirements! Spread the word! Trust me I have every pinata except for the arocknid I never got around to getting it. So ask me for any pinata and if you can send me an arocknid pretty plz. So remember my GT is LibertyNow! THIS IS NO PRANK!
