Let's say you let your GF learn abilites naturally, do you miss out on abilities if you don't use Amnesia Greens to get rid of the extra ones.

As long as you never use any items to give "unnatural" abilities for each GF, they will happily go on their set path and learn all the abilities oh their ability path. You will never need to use greens because they only have a set number of abilities.

You only need to use greens if you use GF learning items to teach them abilities that they would not normally have.

Wrong. If you do not use anmesia greens on some GF's they will end up learning like the summ mags and hp's and maybe miss out on 1 ability. There are a couple GF's (cant say which off-hand) that do have more than 20 abilities. Actually I always learn the summ-mags and hps last just to make sure. Actually thinking about it a couple of the abilities are spr bonus and hp bonus and stuff like that. Yea. Cause siren has one of the bonuses and I didnt realizie it till the end of the game. And I was like GRRRRR 8(. So learn all the spr +40% stuff first and things like revive devour, even if you dont use them, they may unlock more. And learn those others last.

All GF's have 22 natural abilities, believe me, i just counted them all (and if you don't believe me, go count them yourself).

You only need greens if you add extra abilities.

However, i am a fair man, and i will wait for the expert on this subject, Vil, or even Pfiefer.

^You are right.

Some G.Fs like Ifrit and Shiva have abilities that will only appear after a certain level (for those 2 its lvl 10). But as long as you dont teach them an extra ability that they dont normally have, you will never miss any of their inherent abilities.

I usually go for a LLG so my G.Fs have all ability learned but are like lvl 5. In that case you will have an empty ability slot until they become lvl 10. After they are lvl 10 the ability will appear in the menu and you will be able to learn it.

If you teach them something and full their ability menu before they reach lvl 10, you will lose the unlocked ability if you dont make another room for it before reaching lvl 10.

First things first *does a little dance for being called an expert*.

But yeah, all GF's learn exactly 22 natural abilities which is all you have room for. (not 20 like Grem said). So if you never use and ability teaching items, you'll never have any need to use any Amnesia Greens.

A quick look at just about any GF related FAQ will show that each one only has 22 listed abilities.

The only "problem" that would arise from letting a GF learn abilities in the order it decides is that you'll generally end up having to wait a while before you learn the useful ones.

From Grem's post, it seems that he is confused and must have taught his GF's abilities through items, since Siren doesn't learn Revive or Devour on her own.

I think he's just referring to Command abilities in general, since he says "things like Revive and Devour."

Hmmm. Yea, i was just listing examples of abilities. With the siren revive thing. Perhaps you are correct, i must be confused. I really thought tho that some learned an extra. But like i said, I mustve forgotten that i taught them something. Ill check it again on my next playthrough...

Don't worry about it grem, you can't be right all the time, and well done for taking it like a man and apologising. One day you might even be as good as me.

Thanks for the help, Usually I customize all of my GFs. But this playthrough I think I am going to let them learn everything naturally and after I max all of them out then decide on what I want to change.
