The Swim stat is a stat for chao, that determines whether it can swim or not, and how well it can swim.
This skill determines the Chao's ability to swim in the water pools. As the skill increases, the Chao will learn to swim. The two stages of chao swimming are:
- Drowning - If a chao has not learned to swim, it will thrash about trying to get out of water once it touches it. If not picked up, it will eventually get out by itself.
- Swimming - Once a chao has 100 swim points, it will learn to swim. But if given more swim drives/animals, it will get better at swimming.
To increase a Chao's swim, you can do any of the following things:
- Give it a yellow Chaos Drive
- Give it an animal with a yellow background
- Give it a Chao Fruit
