Chrono Trigger Tips/Tricks/Cheats
This page here will share minor tidbits, tricks, cheats and hints about Chrono Trigger. As with many of the other guides on my website these are designed to be very google friendly. If you're stuck, and googling to to get done a certain part of the game, that's hopefully how you found this guide!
East Money at start of the game
When you enter Guardia Forest at the start of the game there is a bush near the exit that will be shaking. Inspect this bush for a Shelter. Head through the forest and exit towards the castle. Don't go to the castle but instead enter the forest again and backtrack to this bush. You can inspect it again for another Shelter. Do this as many times as you'd like
New Game +
After you beat the Black Omen dungeon and Lavos the ability to create a New Game + will become available. This will allow you to start again with all of the items of your previous game as well as levels. You can now fight Lavos again or continue through the game. It's much easier to unlock a lot of the different endings during this game mode.
