- Other than in Patapon 1 resources for building/evolving Patapon and Rarepons are no longer strictly mathematics. Instead, the Evolution Map tells you which resources are needed to create or improve them, when they are highlighted for you. Of course, the items have a certain "level", depending on their rarity and ease of acquisition.
- All resources are listed in increasing rarity in their respective groups.
Aquisition Through Minigames
The level/rarity of the item(s) you receive are dependant on how well you did in the minigame, but more importantly the level you played it on.

Use of Resources in Minigames
These materials will help your Patapons level up, and become Rarepons. There are 16 to choose from, and depending on the Rarepon, and the class of Patapon, specific materials will have to be used to upgrade them. Rarepons start off at Level 1, they reach mature age at Level 5, and show their full potiental at Level 10. The minigames that supply the materials only get you the Level 1-4, for the Level 5, bosses will have to be defeated to retrieve them, or the Hero Patapon must go into the Paragate. The Blacksmith minigame requires Ka-ching as well as ore, but can make better alloys, and equipment, and the Bell minigame requires some Level 1-3 materials to earn Ka-ching to support the other minigames, and Patapon development.
While necessary for certain items, minigames do not yield as many resources as a properly farmed boss. Bosses automatically drop an item when staggered. By putting a status effect such as sleep, knockback or freeze before staggering the boss, a level 3+ item will be guaranteed. The most effective combination is Menyokki (tree) and Mashu (mushroom). Menyokki's Cnc is 200%, the highest of any Rarepon and the stat which regulates stagger. Mashu specializes in both sleep and knockback effects, making them the most multi-purpose Rarepon for inflicting status effects. Yumipon are the ideal Pon to evolve, as they all can hit when attacking, they have the greatest range of attack (both near and far targets) and their triple shoot when in fever mode. Just remember to have a melee squad to pick up all the loot.
As each boss is associated with a single item, you will need to be sure to choose the right one:
- Meats: Manboth/Manboroth
- Hides: Goruru/Garuru
- Fangs: Centura/Darantula
- Bones: Mochichichi/Fenicchi
- Stones: Dodonga/Majidonga/Kacchindonga
- Wood: Gaeen/Dogaeen
- Vegetables: Zaknel/Dokaknel
- Seeds: Shookle/Shooshookle
- Alloys: Kanogias/Ganodias
- Liquids: Ciokina/Cioking
Once you have a full squad of Yumipons evolved, focus on the second tier bosses. Their increased health means they can withstand more damage, which means more materials.
- Seeds are the only materials not obtained through Minigames.
