I was playing FFX: Pal version earlier today and I decided to play some Blitzball on the Thunder Plains in between battles there.
I saw a Tournament open up and the 1st place prize was Jecht Shot 2. My Tidus had not yet learned Anti-Venom 2, so I was about to enter a league match instead when I saw the Top Scorer prize was a Return Sphere and, knowing you can customize First Strike with them *and* use them to go back on the Sphere Grid, I thought, "Well... might as well play for those..." because the Teleport Spheres and Return Spheres had been rather lacking on this playthrough.
The first match, however, I found had just recruited Linna and she had Anti-Venom 2 equipped! I thought, "Oh, if only I can get that, I can win the tournament and get Jecht Shot 2!"... but at the half, I had not yet gotten her to activate it, despite using Venom Pass with Kiyuri - my MF that I was trying to level up. I was just beginning to think, "Crap, I'm going to lose my chance..."...
But in the second half, I managed to get Ropp over to where Linna was and I had him use Venom Pass 2... Linna used Anti-Venom 2 and I successfully techcopied it with Tidus!
Afterward, I went on to win the tournament, claim Jecht Shot 2 and get two Return Spheres since Vilucha and Tidus had both been the high scorers.
Man, that was so incredibly lucky that things worked out like that. xD
