How do you complete the 'find the lost Chao' challenge on stage select in SA2: Battle? I reckon that you search for all the animals inone stage before you can find the lost Chao, but I'm not certain. Please help - dozens of emblems are at stake for you!!
A crying chao will be hidden somewhere in the stage... usually quite off the beaten path. Often, the shrines and the Mystic Melody are involved in getting to the hiding place, but not always. One you find the chao, you get the emblem; the animals have nothing to do with it. Your rank is determined by how fast you find it.
