Oracle of Seasons Trading Sequence

The Oracle of Seasons trade quest involves thirteen items that span the entire overworld of the game, including the land of Subrosia. After going through the entire trading sequence, Link will receive the Noble Sword. Note that is possible to obtain the Noble Sword without using this sequence, as you can simply read the clues to moving through the lost woods without the Deku Scrub actually telling you them. If you skip down to the final item in the trading sequence, you can just follow the instructions and get the Noble Sword then. For a full context of all the items found within the trading sequence be sure to check out the Oracle of Seasons Walkthrough.

Cuccodex -You need the Ember Seeds to get this first item. In the southeast corner of Horon Village, a screen to the right of the ember seed tree, there is a house. Enter it and there will be a man who says that it is too dark for him to read. Light the torch beside his desk with an ember seed and he will give you the Cuccodex.

You got a Cuccodex! It's the result of many years of Cucco research!

Ghastly Doll -Maple is not a random encounter, as is ordinary belief. Maple appears on designated points on the map, and will appear after you defeat 30 enemies. You can cut this number in half to 15 if you wear Maple's Ring. So defeat 30 enemies and then go to one of the appearance points on the map and Maple will appear. Move into her path and run into her. You will drop the Lon Lon Egg. She will notice this and take it, giving you the Ghastly Doll.

You traded a Lon Long Egg for a Ghastly Doll! Looking at it gives you chills!
