Pocket Zaurus Botoranodon.gif

Bottlanodons are characters from the Pocket Zaurus franchise, and are pteranodons that double as drinking bottles. All items start out in Bottlanodons. Bottlanodons that are pre-arranged along the stage remain a single color, as shown on the left. Bottlanodons that appear as a result of killing certain enemies change colors, as shown on the right. To discover what they contain, Pocket Zaurus must touch them. When he does, the capsule will rise and possibly transform. If it does not transform, Pocket Zaurus can touch the capsule a second time to score 200, 500, or 1000 points. If it does transform, it will become one of the items listed below, which Pocket Zaurus must also touch in order to collect.

Pocket Zaurus Diamond.png Diamond Diamonds are the currency found throughout the game. Therefore, it is wise to collect as many diamonds as possible.
Pocket Zaurus Flash.png Flash The power of the Flash attack is equivalent to three boomerang strikes to any enemy visible on the entire screen. However, it is ineffective against bosses. You can store up to three of these, and you may not use them while piloting the time capsule.
Pocket Zaurus Dracula.png Drakkura This vampire imp is not an item, but an enemy character which appears from unlucky Bottlanodons. Once visible, it orbits around Pocket Zaurus, and tries to bite him. Attack it and remove it from the screen as quickly as possible.
