Frog Catching Walkthrough

What is Frog Catching?

FF9 Frog Catching

Frog Catching is a mini-game found revolving around Quina in the various Qu's Marshes found throughout the world. It is best to not catch every frog in each location as a male and female are required to increase the population.

Why Catch Frogs?

Catching frogs will net you rewards as well as strengthening Quina's Blue Magic Frog Drop. The rewards obtainable from the sidequest are listed in the table above.

How to Catch Frogs

To begin catching frogs, you must have Quina in your party upon reaching the pond area where the frogs live. Once you have started the mini-game, guide Quina to the frogs and catch them using the X Button (PS) or the A button (Switch/XB1). The frogs will hop around at random avoiding Quina so do your best to get as many as you can!

Golden Frogs

While it may be tempting to catch a golden frog if it appears, do not! Leaving a golden frog in the marsh will increase the speed at which it repopulates, allowing you to catch more frogs quicker.

Quale's 99th Frog

FF9 Quale

Upon Catching your 99th frog, Quale appears officially declaring that he/she has nothing more to teach to Quina. This comes with a final test in which you must battle Quale. For more information about Quale, see the link below.
