Chocobo Lure is an Independent Materia in Final Fantasy VII. When equipped, it allows the player to encounter a Chocobo near the chocobo tracks on the world map in a random encounter. The chance to find a Chocobo increases based on the Materia's level.
One Chocobo Lure can be purchased from Choco Billy at the Chocobo Farm for 2,000 gil up until the Highwind is available. A second Materia becomes available after the Highwind is obtained, found in front of the fences of the Chocobo Farm.
|1||0||Can encounter chocobos near chocobo tracks.|
|2||3000||1.5x chance of encountering chocobos.|
|3||3000||2x chance of encountering chocobos.|
Chocobo Lure is equipped to capture Chocobos, helping with Chocobo breeding. To improve the chance to encounter one, the Materia should be leveled up. It provides twice the chance to encounter a Chocobo at level 3 and master, but multiple Chocobo Lure Materia can be equipped to increase the chance to quadruple the base chance.
Outside of capturing Chocobos, Chocobo Lure also provides a small +1 Luck boost. This stat change alone is typically not worth a Materia slot compared to other Materia, but it can be kept around if there is a spare slot.
