How to get a Chocobo in Final Fantasy 16

In order to get a Chocobo in Final Fantasy 16, you have to wait until you get far enough into the game. It's not something you can just buy with enough Gil. After you are given the "Gathering Storm Quest" in Martha's Rest, you will find a small side quest icon on the map nearby. Here, you will be given the "The White-Winged Wonder" quest.

This is a pretty simple quest, challenging you with going nearby and finding a white Chocobo that has gone missing. First, you'll find a white wing on the ground, which then points you to a group of bandits on the map. All of it is displayed in-game, but you can see the exact location below.
