Turbo Nozzle Gravity Defiying Jump
You probably won't find this move in any strategy guide or another site and keep in mind it's just for fun.
You can't turn very fast with the turbo nozzle and you can't turn at all while jumping with the turbo nozzle. You can though with this move.
First get the Turbo Nozzle then start using it to go really fast. While your going fast spin jumprotate control pad then press A and immediately after that press Y to go into the view mode. While your in view mode going extremely fast you can turn while spinning in the air inside view mode That way you can run around Delfino Plaza with the turbo nozzle doing insanly tight turns and even do 180 degree turn while in the air with the turbo nozzle running
It kinda confusing but if you get it right it's pretty fun to run around with.

Wanna learn how some of the water cannon functions work? Let me show you. First use the regular pump function to clean up sludge on the walls and ground. Use the hover function to go across large gaps ad hover while you clean the sludge on the ground,its two in one The rocket function allows you to soar to new heights by making you blast off like a rocket. The other function allows you to quickly gain speed on land and water use this as an escape or to get somewhere quickly. Use these functions in the right ways and maybe you might master them very efficiently
Total Number of Shine Sprites
Ok. A lot of people are wondering how many Shine Sprites there are in the game. Well there are a total of 120 Shine Sprites. The shines break down as follows: Each of the seven main levels has eight shines, two hidden shines, and one 100 Gold Coin Shine. That's 77 Shine Sprites. Delfino Plaza has 16, the Airport has 2 plus the 100 Gold Coin Shine, and Mount Coronathe last level has 1. That's a total of 96 Shine Sprites. Now, each main level has 30 blue coins, while the Airport has one, the Plaza has 19, and Mount Corona has 10. That is a total number of 240 Blue Coins. Cash them in the Racoon Hut in town to bring the total up to 120 Shine Sprites.
Get 100 coins
Getting 100 coins can be a problem. But I'll help you out with where to go and with some advice on what to do. I've done these before so it should work.
Grab the Rocket Nozzle and follow the line of coins. Don't forget to jump on the enemies.
Episode 3-Coins are very easy to find here. Make sure you destroy the enemies. There's 2 owl like birds flying around the area where there was 2 bee hives. Or it was the area with many palm trees. Squirt the 2 birds with water collecting their coins until they give you a 1-up. Then just keep squirting the bird until it touches the ground or jump on it to get another coin.
Episode 3-Make sure you explore the tunnels and try to jump out through holes whether there's boxes on it or not. You can find valuable coins there. Scour the catwalks and hop on top of bloopers to discover more coins.
Episode 8-Bring watermelons to the stand to get some coins. High above the stand is a wire which you can swing on to nab some more coins hold up as you jump off of the wire as it's spinning. Cataquacks will give you a coin if you spray them and then jump on them. More coins are under the stands dock. and on the ceiling of the beach house. There's more by riding the swing on the small island.
Episode 2-Spraying the beach will give you some coins but you might want to look more into the flying bullet bills. It's possible to get 999 coins in this area if you're patient. Just keep on spraying those bullet bills. Look for the gold ones. They give you the most coins
Episode 1 or 4-It'll take awhile but in Episode 1 you can get a 100 coins by spraying the ground beach, grass, path, etc. and grabbing the coins just laying around. It takes awhile but I've done itIn Episode 4 you can take your chances by grabbing as much coins as you can before entering the casino and hope you win enough coins to get the shine before you get the three 7's.
Episode 6-Most of the coins are lined up across the water. Check inside the cliff walls and near the Rocket Nozzle.
Episode 1-You can extinguish the flames on the mushrooms, then pound their caps to uncover some coins. If you pound the nose of the Pianta shaped tree and pound inside the concrete basin you can get some more coins.
In some Episodes it's not possible to get 100 coins. All of this information is very accurate and should be helpful in your hunt

After going into Banico Hills for the first time, a building will open its doors, go in, and talk to the person inside he will want you to bash all of the boxes, if you compete this task in time, he will give you a shine sprite. You maydo so twice, though each time is harder than the last.
