What's that big thing that suddenly appears out of nowhere? Byakuren?

Oh, and what's the shadow size of the strange fish you need to get Retso?

Big thing? I haven't seen that yet... How big is it?

As for the Strange fish, there is no actal fish size for it since it's random, but you could try the medium size fish... The Strang Fish i kind of small actually, but dig enough for you to see it. Kind of like a centimeter or two on your screen.

It's sort of hard to miss the big thing if you see it. I've caught the strange fish from each shadow type, but I caught two strange fish off the medium size.

Unless I've missed something rather interesting, I don't think you encounter Byakuren while fishing.

Yes, in fact several times I've had the giant snake-thing (I believe it to be Byakuren) pass under my boat. It forces all the characters to stop what they were doing until the boat finishes rocking.

Hmm...I've never seen Byakuren while fishing, but I can easily believe that he appears, and I probably just missed it, or wasn't paying attention or something. Or maybe I recruited him before I started playing the fishing game much. I really don't know.

As for the Strange Fish, it seems to be present in some fishing minigames, and not present in others, starting at the point in the storyline when you can actually recruit Retsu. The first time after he told me about the Fish, I couldn't catch any, despite catching an awful lot of fish during the game. However, the second time that I played, I caught at least half a dozen Strange Fish. The next time I played the minigame, just to raise cash, I didn't see any Strange Fish, but then when I played again, I once again caught at least five or six of them.

It actually kind of annoyed me, since it's not worth points in the game, and it doesn't provide me with Potch. Stupid Strange Fish.

I've seen the Byakuren in the fishing game after I've recruited her.

I've seen Byakuren while fishing. At the time I had no clue what was going on and I was like: :?

Apparently I just haven't played the fishing mini-game nearly enough, despite it being an excellent source of potch. It's wonderful how every Suikoden game comes down to a desperate struggle to get enough money to buy all of the stuff that you want to have by the end of the game.

It's not so much seeing byakuren, as seeing a large shadow that swims under the boats and start them rocking. I assume that this is Byakuren, as I have never had it happen after recruiting her, and I play the fishing game an awful lot. <Great way to make potch.>

Also, you can only catch strange fish after the water recedes from the ruins, exposing the second level - (the 3rd floor where the restaurant is)
If you think about it, it makes sense. You can't recruit Retso unless you have a place where he can hang out.

Oh.



That pretty much explains it all. (Damn incomplete guide for wasting my time!)

Is it possible... to actually CATCH Byakuren in the fishing mini-game?

No I tried the first time I saw him. I originally thought she was the strange fish, but then when I discovered you couldn't fish when he swims through, I quickly dumped that idea. Altough when she swims through the game she looks alot longer than she reallly is.
