So, while on the first boat I saved before attempting, and managed to nail the shot on my second try. Spun, kicked it, had a cutscene, watched some players try the shot and had Yuna confront me regarding it.
Yet, here I am at the tournament, wanting very very much to win, and can't seem to figure out for the life of me what I'm doing wrong, but I cannot find it anywhere on Tidus' command list. In the attack mode all I have is normal shoot and pass, I even had more than the required HP yet still can't find it.
Am I just amazingly stupid, or is something else goinf wrong?
You need to equip the shot in order to use it. The first tech slot becomes available at Lv3. Tidus starts at Lv2 and requires 1 EXP to reach Lv3. If he performs a successful pass, tackle or shot during the first half of the match you'll be able to equip Jecht Shot at half time and use it in the second half.
Additional tech slots become available at Lv7, 12, 20 and 30.
