02 : Step 8, first time you dig up a "Chocograph piece"

Now, I have a 3 bytes adress :
"H&C current pts (for trade) :
30181DE0, 30181DE1, 30181DE2
=> cap is 99,999
Second 3 bytes adress :
"H&C total pts (hidden, for beak level) :
ArtMoney : 30181DF8, 30181DF9, 30181DFA
GameShark : 3007AF60, 3007AF61, 3007AF62
=> this is where the true amount is stored, regardless of whether or not you exchanged points.
Revival_Flame posted the amount needed for each level : http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/197338-/58752074
Back to normal adresses :

01 : Field (Yellow)
02 : Reef (Light Blue)
03 : Mountain (Red)
04 : Sea (Dark Blue)
05 : Sky (Gold)
01 : will display a Star next to your current points
=> this is rewarded to people attaining 99,999 pts
From my understanding of what has been discussed here and the PM you sent me, I guess you already have most of this.
EDIT 1, this has nothing to do with H&C :
=> these adresses seem to be related on if whether or not you already visited a place.
for instance, when you first visit Qu's Marsh, it appears as "?" on the worldmap.
EDIT 2 :
Mogster's tutorial :
These adresses is about if you read or not the tutoria0 ("New!" icon).
The values are set to FF by default, and they decrease by the amount associated.
