Rarity: Viral
Description: Bonded character takes less damage from enemy attacks and spreads the remaining damage evenly among other team members.

Pooki is a chao from Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. In this game, chao eggs can be found scattered around the stages, and once hatched, the chao take up residence in the chao garden. From here they can be equipped to accompany characters into battle, where the different chao confer various beneficial status effects.

In general, the higher a chao's rarity, the better the status effect will be. Along with 40 collectible chao available in-game, there were 5 secret "viral" chao, intended to be made available at a series of official events. Only one of the events was actually held (the others apparently canceled due to poor attendance at the first), making these chao completely unavailable to Western players (without savestate manipulation). In the later Japanese release of the game, four of the chao were available in-game via secret codes in the chao garden. The code for Pooki is BABYBABY.
