Okay so I wanted to post this real quick, I found this on the forum. Make sure to go to the guy's thread and thank him or tell him good idea! Must of taken a long time to put it together.
I have to remind you all who are going to go look for the Dalmatians or are in the midst of searching them, IF YOU ARE USING AN OLD KH GUIDE (PHYSICAL OR ONLINE) REMEMBER THAT SOME OF THE ITEMS IN CHESTS HAVE MOVED
What I mean by this is, I was using my OLD, OLD Kingdom Hearts game guidebook and sometimes when the book said there is Dalmatian, there would be a Gummi block in it instead. But when you saw a Gummi block was suppose to be in a chest, Dalmatians were in it.
You can kinda use that as an indication if you are missing some Dalmatians, you can just look at a map of the whole world and if you remember which chests you got the gummis or dalmatians, you can see where you are missing some. But that's a big IF, the only place I missed some were in Wonderland and Hollow Bastion, mostly because I forgot how to get the chests on top of the Hedges in Mad Hatter's Tea Party area and in Hollow Bastion there is ONE chest in an area you need that has Dalmatians. IIRC, you need to hit a crystal in an the High Tower area.
This is from my guide book for Hollow Bastion:
After you go to the door way under the heartless insignia blocks (The ones you move), you go the opposite doorway and you find yourself on the High Tower platform. There's a chest to lower, (Suppose to contain dalmatians, but I'm sure there's a gummi inside it) Then just examine a crystal there to lower the other half of the block. You hope across and use the yellow crystal to raise the second block up.
Now you ascend to the higher level and fight some wizards and darkballs, open the chest there. THere's a crystal there that triggers a different path for the platform that appeared in the secret room in the library.
Once you activate it, and you have time, go to that platform and it will take you to a higher level, you go to another area of the Lift Stop, there you just see a floating chest, just use Gravita and you'll get Dalmatians. :3
But if you are a visual person, watch the video this guy put up! :3
