Best Answer

You can not eat carbohydrates before a Pet scan because it can show a raise in activity and metabolism in your body. This is because your body breaks down carbohydrates to store energy and the scan will show an inaccurate reading.

Why cant you get the ability scan for Ursula?

I don't know if this is what you're wondering, but I could have sworn you got the ability "scan" earlier in the game than ursula for KH1. I think for every battle it is small and with Atlantica it blends in. In KH2, it is a musical and of course you cannot get the "scan" ability. In KH1, I got "scan" before defeating Sabor in Deep Jungle.
