Finding new Job Memories unlocks additional jobs for your Chocobo in the game. This Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy Job Memory Location Guide will tell you how to unlock each of the different classes we’ve discovered by discovering the Job Memory items scattered throughout the game.
Your Chocobo can learn new skills and abilities depending on what jobs you have unlocked, equipped and progressed with. Each job levels up individually through Job Points earning from completing dungeons and defeating enemies. You can only chance your class at specific locations, such as the very beginning of most dungeons. If you change class, you will automatically assign the latest abilities unlocked for that class.
Below is a list of the different classes we’ve discovered so far, including how to find their Job Memory so you can unlock new classes for yourself.
