Nope. It's entirely random what the Chao gets, if anything. And Skeleton Dogs still count as parts to, it's just that they give the Chao one of it's original parts. It's all luck if you want something specific. Who said that? All I wanted them to do was add in the items that are already there, ala Big. But of course whatyou say is true. The Chao aren't really a selling point. I hadn't even thought about them until just now to be honest. It's not something they would have considered. More feasible than online play, but not a big deal at all.
