This Walkthrough/FAQ is dedicated to Kathleen Tan. ^_^ She is one of the 
nicest friends I have in a long time. Although we haven’t been able to meet 
in person (hopefully someday ^_^), I know that she is a kind and a gentle 
person. Not only that, she is very much into video gaming as much as I do and 
she is one excellent gamer. Thank you very much once more.

                                INTRODUCTION
                           =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Greetings once more! It’s time to get back on track on my RPG guide writing. 
As promised here is my Final Fantasy X walkthrough/FAQ for the Sony 
Playstation 2. I’ve been planning on making this guide even back when it was 
announced for the Playstation 2 (last year). I’m a Role-Playing Game 
Enthusiast and I can’t afford not to have this great title. I’ll do what I 
did way back during the days of my Final Fantasy IX guide. This time, I’ll 
try to make it better than any of my other guides. But just as my previous 
guides, I’ll won’t be accepting e-mails regarding questions and contributions 
for now. I’ll start accepting them after the walkthrough is finished. I have 
my own e-mail address for this one though.

As for the game, this is definitely the BEST game EVER to appear on any 
console. I don’t want to hurt the feelings of those who got the Xbox and the 
Gamecube last November but you really need a PS2 for this one. Final Fantasy 
X is the revolutionary RPG game for the next generation console gaming. Gear 
up folks, let’s roll!

                               E-MAIL POLICY
                               =-=-=-=-=-=-=

For the past few months, I’ve been receiving such a great number e-mails and 
some of them are quite annoying (very few though, just 2). So, I decided to 
put up this e-mail policy as a guide for you if you want to send an e-mail to 
me. Here are the things that you must do/must not do in sending an e-mail 
regarding this guide and any of my other guides:

Do’s
----
1. Send me a question which cannot be found on my guide. I will be more that 
happy to help you.
2. Try to be specific in order for me to understand what you’re trying to ask 
me.
3. You can send in your questions/contributions/other e-mails in text or HTML 
format. No executables.
4. Check first the latest version of the guide before sending questions, 
contributions, etc.  If you use later versions, the answer/s to your 
questions 
might have been answered already and will be most likely to be ignored.
5. If I happen to forget you, just e-mail me nicely and I’ll respond to you 
ASAP.

Don’ts
------
1. Don’t send any questions which can be answered from my guide. And don’t be 
persistent in doing so.
2. Don’t send nonsense e-mails like “I want to marry you!”, “Can you buy me 
this or that?”, etc.
3. Don’t say bad words. F$#k Y%u! and the likes.
4. And, don’t send Chain letters! Please!
(Doing this, your e-mail will be most likely to be ignored)
5. Don’t send executable files (.exe, .com) as an attachment. I don’t want 
any 
Trojans wandering around. 
6. Don’t Spam (repeated messages)

Virus Info
----------
There are still some people who are infected with the Snow White virus. You 
may receive an e-mail that is from hahaha@sexyfun.net that’s all about Snow 
White and the seven dwarves. Here’s what you can do to check if you are 
infected or not. Now, send a mail to yourself. This may sound crazy, but it 
works. If you receive another e-mail, which has the snow White virus, at the 
same time or a little later than the ones you send to yourself, it means that 
you are probably infected with the virus. To confirm this, check the IP 
Address and the STMP server indicated in the virus e-mail. Don’t worry about 
infection, as long as you DON’T open the attachment, you’re safe. But, if the 
IP Address and the STMP server in the virus e-mail is the same as the ones in 
your e-mail, you are 100% infected. So, run a virus scanner. 

To prevent any virus from infiltrating, DO NOT open executable file such as 
(*.exe, *.com, *.scr, *.pif, *.bat) even if they’re from a trusted friend or 
a family member. They may not know that they are infected. JPEGs and TXT 
files are safe. :)

Change topic, for those who will send their contributions, I’ll always credit 
anything that is from you. I will always make sure of that. If I ever forget, 
please remind me nicely. :)

Progress: 
---------
Hi everyone! Completing the guide is now my main goal. I’ve split the guide 
into 2 since there are more than 200 pages already. I did this so that you’ll 
have an easier time finding what you need. Previous Version Updates will 
still be posted here but updating from the next version thereafter will be 
separate. Thanks again!

Updates:
--------

Version 1.18 (Started: April 8, 2002)
-------------------------------------
Something important came up and I’ve had trouble. All e-mails for ffx from 
March 22 up to April 4 have been lost. I’ve had major problems with my hard 
disk and all of data have been wiped out, in short, I formatted my hard 
drive. Also, I’ll have to find another e-mail host since this e-mail address 
will be permanently gone (they are now charging us here). I’ll try my best to 
find a new and better e-mail for this one as well as my other edsamail 
addresses. In light of that, I’d like to apologize to everyone for the lack 
of update since I’ve been trying to think of a way to get things back in 
order. Thank you and good day.

                              GAME INFORMATION 
                          =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

=============
GAME CONTROLS
=============
If you have played one of the games in the final fantasy series, you’ll be 
very familiar with the game controls for the game. You use the Action button 
(X) to examine objects and talk to people. Triangle Button will be for the 
menu. Circle Button is assigned as the Cancel or the Walk Button. The Square 
button will be a special button for the Blitz Ball mini-game. Apart from the 
D-Pad (up, right, down, left) buttons, you may use the Left Analog stick to 
control the character. It will be much convenient that way.

==========
GAME MENUS
==========
to be included in the future...

===========
GAME BASICS
===========

1. The Navigation System
------------------------
The navigation system of the game is much like the same as in the previous 
Final Fantasies. You just control your character in towns and other places 
looking for key items and finding certain event locations. But this time, it 
will be much easier since the overhead map on the upper left corner of the 
screen shows you at once where you should go. It will be indicated by a red 
arrow. You’ll just have to find your way to that indicator. But of course, 
there will be times when you’ll need to find your way out yourself.

2. Storyline Info
-----------------
The storyline is practically very linear since there are no huge turning 
points that change/affect the story. You’ll have to devote more time now 
since there are voiceovers for the story. It made the game more story-based, 
much like the Bouncer. But of course, FFX has more action.

3. Battle System
----------------
The game incorporates almost the same turn-based battle system as the other 
games in the Final Fantasy Series. The CTB (Time Bar) is located on the right 
side of your screen during battles. You’ll see the order of movement, the top 
of which is the one who will move first. If a character’s bar depletes, it 
means he/she will have his/her turn. There are various things that affect the 
CTB. One is the type of attack the character does. Some attacks lessen the 
depletion time of the CTB and thus, it slows down the character. This is most 
evident when you use Special Attacks and Overdrives for Aeons. Second, the 
CTB depletion rate can be altered by using Haste (deplete faster) or Slow 
(deplete slower). Sometimes, it really is necessary to watch the order so 
that you can plan your move ahead of time.

4. Element System
-----------------
Again, the elemental system is applied in battles. But this time, it will be 
much simpler than ever. There are 4 main elements namely Ice, Fire, Water, 
and Lightning. Ice and Fire oppose each other as well as Water to Lightning. 
If you use Ice on a Fire Based opponent, that attack will be very much 
effective. If you use the same element as the opponent, it will be most 
likely that it will be less effective. Your attack may even heal the opponent 
so watch out and know what your opponent’s element is.

5. Items and Key Items
----------------------
As usual, items play an integral part in the game. Most especially, the Key 
Items are needed in order to progress through the game. Each item has its own 
effect/price and are can even be found on spoils from enemies. As for Key 
Items, they sometimes need some thinking in order to acquire. 

6. Weapons and Armor
--------------------
Weapons and Armor are the basic tools you’ll need in the game. They are the 
one you use to assault your enemies. These weapons and armors (not all 
weapons and armors though) have special abilities that when equipped, will be 
activated and for use in the battle. It has been made simpler this time 
though since you only have to worry about the weapon and the armor. You don’t 
have to worry about helmets, gloves, and such.

===============
CHARACTER STATS
===============

Strength - Determines the overall physical power of the character. It 
determines how much damage the character will do with normal attacks.

Defense - Determines how high the defense of the character is. The higher 
this rating is, the lower the damage he will receive from physical attacks.

Magic - Determines how strong is the Magical ability of the character. The 
higher this stat is, the stronger the effect of magical attacks will be. 

Magic Defense - Just like defense, but this time, this concerns magic. It 
determines how much damage the character will take from Magical attacks.

Agility - This shows how fast the CTB of that character will fill up. 

Luck - This shows how will the character fare in landing an Overkill attack. 
This is applicable to physical and magical attacks. 

Evade - This stat shows the chance of the character to evade attacks and 
thus, receive no damage.

Accuracy - This shows the possibility or the chances of a character in 
successfully attacking the opponent.

        -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
                               WALKTHROUGH
        =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The game offers quite a very linear story. You can actually go through your 
first game without any help at all. But just incase you got lost somewhere, 
I’ll try my best to help you out with this guide. 

*****IMPORTANT REMINDER*****
Just take note that as with my previous RPG guides, I write the walkthrough 
with minor spoilers in it so that you will be able to follow fully with the 
story and the game. But I’ll try to minimize the spoilers so as not to reveal 
major turning points in the story.

=================
ZANARKAND STADIUM
=================

In the beginning, you’ll see a short FMV with all the characters shown. After 
that, it’s onto the stadium. There, our hero is being greeted by his fans 
since he is a Blitz Ball star. Now, you’ll be able to take control of him for 
the first time. Try to familiarize yourself on how to move the character. I 
suggest using the analog controller for ease of use. Then, go south towards 
the screen and talk either to the 2 girls or the children. You’ll be asked 
for the name of our hero. Let us use his default name, Tidus. You may then 
talk to the other persons here. After that, a cue for the start of the game 
will be heard. Tidus will leave. When you regain control of him, just head 
east. You’ll be able to hear the voice of Tidus himself. You’ll now notice 
that Tidus is actually narrating his story. Move on to the next screen.

Here, Tidus will be at the center of the crowd (just incase you can’t find 
him). Just go north towards the building. You’ll then see another FMV. A 
short while later, a disaster will happen. You’ll be able to regain control 
of Tidus once more. This time, check out the small map on the upper left 
corner of your screen. Take note that there is a red arrow there. It is 
actually the exact point (or the direction to that point) where you need to 
go to in order to advance in the game/story. Now, go south to that point and 
meet up and talk with Auron (I really thought it was Aaron back then ^_^). 
You’ll then see a short time-stopped event. You’ll also be introduced to 
“Sin” by Auron. After that, you’ll have to fight your way through the spawns. 
Just attack them normally. Later, you’ll meet up with a boss.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SINSPAWN AMMES
#############################################################################
HP:      2,200+
AP:      0
Gil:     0
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Demi
Steal:   not applicable

This is easy. Just use normal attacks and perform Overdrives when possible. 
Just try to finish the battle quickly since Demi will cut off quite a chunk 
of your HPS. 
#############################################################################

After that, follow Auron while fighting on the way. You may save your game in 
the save sphere here. When the enemies just keep on coming, hit the machine 
on the right to destroy the ground and give a chance for you to evade them. 
But then, it seems fate laid its hand on Tidus and he is sucked inside Sin 
along with Auron.

=====
RUINS
=====
Treasures: Potion, 200 Gil, Hi-Potion x2, Flints, X-Potions, Ether, Withered 
Bouquet

You’re now on another world it seems. First, familiarize yourself with in-
water navigation. Pressing the Circle button will let Tidus dive. Now, head 
to a location where you see a boy. After that, you’ll be in a ruin area. 
Here, go west for an Al Bhen Comp. Sphere. You’ll be able to use it later in 
the game. Near this is a chest with a Potion. Go back to the water and head 
east. Get 200 Gil from a chest there. Finally, go north towards the Red 
Indicator on the map and you’ll eventually reach the first Save Sphere of the 
game. Don’t hesitate, just save your game. 

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
SAVE SPHERES
- you’ll be able to save your game here. Also, your HP and MP will be 
replenished as well as for the Aeons (summons). There will also be other uses 
for this later in the game.
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

After saving the game, continue to the next screen. Here, you’ll see an 
intersection. Go left first and get a Hi-Potion from a chest. Go back to the 
intersection and go north. In the water, go north. You’ll now encounter your 
first underwater battle. After beating the opponents, another boss will 
appear.

#############################################################################
BOSS: GEOSGAENO
#############################################################################
HP:      500+
AP:      0
Gil:     0
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Normal Physical Attacks
Steal:   not applicable

Again, here’s another easy one. Just use normal attacks against it. Use 
Potions if necessary.  
#############################################################################

After a scene, go north and go up the stairs at the end. You’ll be in a main 
hall. It’s cold here so you’ll need fire. First, go southwest and you’ll see 
a Save Sphere. Save if you’d like. Then, use the south door and get the 
Flints inside. Next, in the main hall, get a X-Potion to the east. Use the 
northern door. Here, get an Ether to the Lower Left area. Then, continue 
north. On top, get the Withered Bouquet. Continue to the next screen and get 
another Hi-Potion. Now, head back to the main hall and examine the center. 
You’ll see a couple of scenes here with a battle. Some people will arrive in 
here. 

#############################################################################
BOSS: KLIKK
#############################################################################
HP:      1,500+
AP:      5
Gil:     100
Items:   Ability Sphere x2
Equip:   none
Attacks: Normal Physical Attacks
Steal:   Grenade

In this battle, the woman is on your side. Use her grenades to inflict a 
sufficient amount of damage to Klikk. As for Tidus, just let him attack 
normally and use Potions. Also, if you run out of grenades, you can steal 
some from Klikk. Just use the woman’s steal ability.
#############################################################################

After that, they will take you on their ship afterwards. 

============
SALVAGE SHIP
============
Treasures: Potion x3

Here, you’ll hear their weird language. But then, talk to the girl and she 
will speak normally. You’ll now learn more about the Sphere Grid. After that, 
the girl will tell you that you’ll have to work. When you regain control, 
talk to one of the guys and he’ll give you 3 Potions. Save at the Save Sphere 
on the upper left area of the deck. Talk to the woman again. You’ll be able 
to control Tidus in the water. Just press Circle until you shift to the next 
screen. In this screen, just follow the chain down to the underwater ruins.

================
UNDERWATER RUINS
================

Upon reaching the ruins, I suggest that you save your game first. Then, 
examine the blue panel here. It will open up a new path. Go in. Examine the 
center then go back. You’ll meet up with another one of the bosses.

#############################################################################
BOSS: TROS
#############################################################################
HP:      2,100+
AP:      5
Gil:     100
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Tentacles
Steal:   Grenade

In this battle, you’ll see a new variation of moves. Tros will, first, go 
around the battle area. It will make Tidus and the girl unable to attack. 
Just choose the Stand By actions for both. Tros will lunge an attack. Just 
use the girl’s grenades and let Tidus do normal attacks. When it goes around 
the second time, choose the Pincer attack. Tidus and the woman will sneak up 
on both sides of Tros. It won’t be able to escape anymore. Just pummel it 
until it dies.
#############################################################################

When you regain control, follow the girl towards the exit. In the water, keep 
on diving down towards the Red Indicator on the map. After a short while, 
you’ll be back on the Ship.

============
SALVAGE SHIP
============

You’ll see some scenes here where the girl talks to Tidus. Her name is Rikku. 
They will talk about Zanarkand, Blitz Ball and more. After that, when you 
regain control of Tidus, go to the Save Point and save your game. Next, talk 
to Rikku again. Later, Sin will do a surprise attack on the ship. 
Unfortunately for Tidus, he’ll get sucked inside again. 

============
BESAID BEACH
============
Treasures: Moon Crest, Antidote x2, Phoenix Down

You’ll find yourself in a new area. Tidus will show off his amazing Blitz 
Ball moves and the people will be stunned. When you regain control of Tidus 
in the water, go east and get a Moon Crest from a chest. Now, go back and 
talk to the people. Tidus will show off the move again. Then, one will 
introduce himself as Wakka. He is the Captain of the Besaid Aurochs. After 
some talk between the two, you’ll control Tidus again. Follow Wakka. You’ll 
talk more about Zanarkand. Then, save your game. Follow him again. When you 
reach the lake, Wakka will push Tidus onto the water. In the water, just 
follow the channel. Dive along the way for a chest with 2 Antidotes. Near the 
end of the channel, you’ll see a short scene with Wakka and Tidus, about 
Blitz Ball.

You’ll now arrive at the Village. You’ll meet the Crusaders on the way. At 
the Village, Wakka will show you the different places you can go to. Then, 
he’ll ask you about their prayer. You may answer whichever you want. After 
that, Wakka will tell you to head for the temple and present yourself to the 
Temple Summoner. When you regain control of Tidus, go to the houses here. The 
first one on the left is an Item Shop. Buy some Potions and Phoenix Downs if 
you’d like. After that, you may talk to the people on the houses on the right 
side. There’s a Phoenix Down just outside the Item Shop. Wakka’s house is in 
one of them. Then, go to the Crusader’s House. The Crusaders (Luzzu and 
Gatta) here will tell you their purpose and objectives. After that, you may 
talk to the person in the counter for a free nap. This will replenish your HP 
and MP. After that, leave and head for the temple to the north. You’ll see a 
short scene when you enter. When you regain control of Tidus, try heading for 
the Northwest door. An elder will talk to you more about High Summoner Braska 
and about Yevon. After that, try to go up the stairs to the west door. The 
elder will stop you. Now, head all the way back to Wakka’s house. Talk to him 
and take another nap. You’ll see him leave with the elder. Now, go back to 
the temple and then, talk to Wakka. It seems the apprentice summoner has 
taken too long. Tidus will not hesitate to break the rules just to save the 
apprentice summoner. Tidus will head for the cloister of trials.

===========================
CLOISTER OF TRIALS (BESAID)
===========================

Take note, these types of trials consists of puzzles. They are easy but 
later, you’ll encounter more complex ones. First, you’ll see 2 glyphs here. 
Examine the one on the north. Then, examine the one on the right (which will 
open). Go down and examine another Glyph on the way. You’ll be told about how 
to use the Glyphs and Spheres. You’ll receive a Glyph Sphere. Always remember 
that you can only hold one Sphere at a time. Now, continue down and examine 
the recess on the door. Place the Sphere and it will open. Go through. In the 
next area, go west and you’ll see a pedestal at the end. First, examine the 
symbols on the wall just opposite the pedestal. Get the Besaid Sphere. Put in 
on the pedestal. The path will open. Now, push the pedestal towards the 
glittering light. Wakka will come in. He will now tell you that he himself is 
one of the guardians. You’ll then move on to the Fayth (inner chamber of the 
temple/cloister) where the apprentice summoner prays. 

Note: To use the Destruction Sphere (which will reveal a treasure), put the 
Glyph sphere on the left recess. It will reveal the Destruction Sphere. Put 
the Destruction Sphere at the recess inside the small room (with lights that 
form lines inside) and the path to the treasure chest will appear. You’ll 
receive the Rod of Wisdom.

There, you’ll see the other 2 guardians. After a short talk, the apprentice 
summoner will finally come out. She is now a full-fledged summoner. You’ll 
see more cutscenes afterwards. When you regain control of Tidus, leave the 
temple. You’ll see a demonstration of the Lady summoner. She will summon the 
Aeon Valefor. Everyone will be overjoyed. After that, you’ll see more scenes. 
Later, Wakka will introduce Tidus to the Blitz Ball team. When you regain 
control of Tidus, head left and try to talk to the Summoner. The people won’t 
allow it but the summoner will approach Tidus. She will introduce herself to 
Tidus. Her name is Yuna. After a some talk (Wakka comes into the scene also), 
go back and talk to Wakka, who is now with the Aurochs, to take some sleep. 
During the night, Tidus will have a weird dream. You’ll be able to control 
him through. Just move on and talk to Yuna. Rikku and Jecht will appear too. 
After that, Tidus will wake up and see Wakka and Lulu. You’ll see more scenes 
later with Tidus and Wakka talking about Wakka’s little brother, Chappu. 

The next morning, Wakka will give you a new sword, which he gave to his 
little brother way back. When Yuna arrives, the party will move on to pray 
for victory (Blitz Ball) and safe journey. On the way, you’ll learn some 
battle basics such as the elements. After that, when you regain Tidus after 
they prayed, save your game. Now, follow the Red Indicator. A beast will come 
in. It is one of Yuna’s Guardians. Just beat it with normal attacks or use 
your Overdrive if possible. Wakka will stop the fight. Yuna will tell you 
more about Kimahri. After that, just move on. On the way, you’ll learn how to 
use Yuna’s Aeons. Use Valefor for the meantime since there are no other Aeons 
at the moment. To finish the battle quickly, use the Overdrive of the Aeon 
when the Overdrive bar fills up. From here, just move on until you reach the 
beach. Save your game, then board the ship. Yuna will say goodbye to the 
people of Besaid.

=========
S.S. LIKI
=========
Treasures: Remedy

Now, you’ll be able to see the new world map for FFX (I do admit that this is 
a flaw since it deviated from the original world map concept of the previous 
games). On the ship, you’ll first see a naughty Tidus. When you regain 
control of him, go and talk to Wakka. Then, go to Yuna and you’ll 
automatically talk with her. After talking to her, go down to the cabin and 
meet O’aka. He is a traveler merchant whom you’ll be seeing many many times 
in your journey. You can buy weapons and items from him. After that, go to 
the south door behind the stairs. You’ll see the Chocobos here. They are 
powering the ship (just as in FF9). Go back out and go inside the room beside 
the save point. Get a Remedy inside. You may save your game if you’d like. Go 
down off the deck into the cabin below. Head into the room on the left. 
There's a small rectangular box on the right side of the screen. By pressing 
the action button Tidus will kick it and receive a potion! You can do it 
several times.

After that, go back up to the deck and talk to Wakka then to Yuna. You’ll 
talk more and more about Zanarkand, Blitz Ball, and more. Suddenly, Sin will 
appear from nowhere and you’ll have to do battle once more.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SIN (and Sinscales)
#############################################################################
HP:      2,236
AP:      0
Gil:     0
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: none
Steal:   n/a

This is a rather simple battle, if you know what to do exactly. First, your 
priority should be to defeat Sin’s fin. To be able to attack it, you must use 
either Wakka, Lulu, or both of them. Yuna should be in the party to heal. 
Now, as for the Sinscales, just leave 1 of them alive so that more will not 
come anymore. Concentrate your attacks on the Fin and heal when necessary.
#############################################################################

After that battle with Sin, Tidus is nowhere to be found. Wakka jumps in and 
saves him. But then, another boss comes up.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SINSPAWN ECHUILLES (more Sinscales)
#############################################################################
HP:      2,268
AP:      10
Gil:     573
Items:   Power Sphere x2, Mana Sphere x13, Ability Sphere x2
Equip:   Yellow Arm Guard, Harpoon
Attacks: Blender, Drain Touch
Steal:   n/a

This is a long match. First, your main concern should be the Blender attack 
and the annoying Sinscales. Let Wakka kill the Sinscales and let Tidus handle 
the boss. Do not hesitate to use Potions. You’ll be using several of them. 
Now, when available, use your overdrives to give you more advantage to the 
boss.
#############################################################################

After that battle, you’ll see a sad scene where Sin obliterates Kilika. Then, 
you’ll finally arrive at Kilika Village.

======
KILIKA
======

When you arrive at the ill-fated Kilika Village, Yuna will offer her services 
as a Summoner to perform the “Sending” ritual for the souls of the dead. When 
you regain control of Tidus, save your game first then head north and then, 
go west. You’ll see the entire ritual here where Yuna sends the soul to the 
farplane to give them peace. The next morning, leave the inn. Datto will talk 
to you and tells you that Wakka wants to talk to you. Go west first and save 
a girl here who is on an unstable platform. After that, go all the way to the 
east and talk to Wakka. After that, go west and keep on moving until you 
reach the Woods.

============
KILIKA WOODS
============
Treasures: Elixir, Scout, Hi-Potion, Luck Sphere

You’ll see a scene with Yuna where she asks Tidus to become her guardian. 
Well, Tidus isn’t a guardian yet but he’ll still stay close to Yuna and 
protect her. When you regain control, you may want to save first, go all the 
way to the north until you meet up with Luzzo and Gatta. They are confronted 
by a Lord Ochu. Do battle with it.

#############################################################################
BOSS: LORD OCHU
#############################################################################
HP:      4,649
AP:      40
Gil:     420
Items:   MP Sphere
Equip:   Echo Arm Guard
Attacks: Poison Claw, Water, Earthquake
Steal:   n/a

You can use Valefor here. Let Valefor attack until it vanishes. Then, use 
Lulu’s Fire magic and let the others attack the Ochu. The most devastating 
attacks are the Poison Claw and the Earthquake. You’ll need a couple of 
Antidotes or Yuna’s Esuna Magic. When the Ochu is asleep, it will Regenerate 
its HP by 300+ gradually. You wouldn’t want that since it is hard to damage 
it. Just attack it with physical attacks to wake it up. Watch out, he’ll 
perform earthquake when he wakes up so heal at once.
#############################################################################

After the battle, go south and save your game again. Don’t forget to talk to 
Luzzo and get an Elixir. After saving, go back up to the intersection and 
head left. At the next intersection, go north and get a Scout. At the next 
intersection, move north once more. You’ll meet up with several people here. 
Get a Hi-Potion from one of them. Go north here and get a Luck Sphere. Go 
back to the previous intersection and continue to the east. At the next 
intersection, go north. You’ll finally reach the temple area. Here, you’ll 
see a short scene. After that, go and save your game at the save point. 
Follow Yuna and you’ll be battling another one of the Sinspawns.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SINSPAWN GENEAUX
#############################################################################
HP:      3,000 (2 tentacles: 450 HP each)
AP:      82
Gil:     350
Items:   Ability Sphere x2, Power Sphere x6
Equip:   Bright Arm Guard
Attacks: Venom, Water, Staccato
Steal:   n/a

For this boss, attack its tentacles first. His body will be armored so use 
Lulu’s Magic. When he reveals himself (including his tentacles), use Valefor 
to punish it. Then, when Valefor is gone, use your most powerful physical or 
magical attacks on it.
#############################################################################

After that battle, save your game below once more if you’d like. Then, 
continue up towards the temple. You’ll see some scenes with Lulu. 

=============
KILIKA TEMPLE
=============

Here, go north and you’ll be greeted by the Luca Goers, the best Blitz Team 
in Spira. After that, you may save again if you want then go into the temple. 
Talk to Wakka here and pray too. You’ll see some scenes with another 
Summoner, Dona, and her guardian. When you regain control, go up into the 
door. Tidus will be left behind since he isn’t a Guardian yet. Now, wait till 
the platform comes up again. Dona and Barthello will come and places Tidus 
onto the platform forcefully bringing him to the bottom. Below, go inside the 
chamber. You’ll reach another Cloister of Trials.

===========================
CLOISTER OF TRIALS (KILIKA)
===========================
Treasures: Red Armlet

First, get the Kilika Sphere and place it on the recess on the door. It will 
burn. Remove it again and place it either to the left or the right wall 
recess. Go through the door. This is the second room. All you have to do is 
to touch the Glyph to the far north. A door will open leading to the 3rd 
room. Here, get the Kilika Sphere on the right then step on the Glittering 
Panel. A Pedestal will appear. Put the Kilika Sphere on the Pedestal and push 
it onto the glittering panel. Next, get the Glyph Sphere and put it on the 
east recess (near fire) and the fire will be put out. Get the Kilika Sphere 
below and put it on the door first. Now, go back to the door that was opened 
using the Glyph Sphere. Get the Destruction Sphere inside. Place it on the 
recess at the bottom and the wall will crush. Now, remember that the 
Destruction Sphere opens up secret treasures in Cloisters just as what you’ve 
learned earlier. Get the Red Armlet here. Finally, remove the Kilika Sphere 
from the burning door and place it elsewhere. Go through the door. You’ll see 
more scenes. When you regain control of Tidus, talk to Wakka and you’ll learn 
more about the Fayth and Aeons. When you regain control, try to leave the 
chamber. Yuna will finally come out. After that leave the temple. You’ll see 
a couple of scenes and a flashback outside. When you regain control of Tidus 
again, go all the way back to the ship.

=========
S.S. LIKI
=========

See some short scenes here. When you regain control of Tidus in the Cabin, 
leave the room and move on to the deck. Go to the south of the deck and keep 
on talking to Yuna about Zanarkand. After that, go to the west side of the 
ship and go up. You’ll see Lulu and Wakka talk about Tidus. Keep on going 
back up to hear the entire story. When you are able to go to both of them 
talk to them then go back down. Now, go north and examine the Blitz Ball. 
You’ll see another flashback of Tidus. It’s now time for the Jecht Shot 
Challenge. Here, you’ll need to perform the Jecht Shot to finally remove the 
bad memories Tidus had. There are 9 locations on the screen where memories 
(text) will appear. You’ll then have to push the corresponding direction plus 
the X button. Example, if the text/memory appears on the upper left, you 
should press Up+Left and the X button. That goes the same for all directions. 
If it is in the center, just press the X button only. You will be given a 
short practice. Then, the real thing begins. Just keep on pressing those 
buttons with accordance to the memories until Tidus finishes the move. If you 
fail, Tidus will miss the ball. If you managed to get it right, Tidus will be 
finally freed of those bad memories. Also, you’ll be given the Jecht Shot 
Technique that you can use later in the Blitz Ball games if you successfully 
performed it. 

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
If you weren’t able to complete the Jecht Shot Challenge, you can search 
around the ship for the blitz ball and try it again. ^_^

You’ll then see lots of scenes with Yuna, Wakka, and the rest of the Aurochs. 
You’ll then be asked to save your game. After that, you’ll finally reach 
Luca.

====
LUCA
====

Here, the announcer will introduce some of the teams that will participate in 
the opening tournament. You’ll hear an annoying introduction for the Besaid 
Aurochs who didn’t have any win at all. After some more scenes, you’ll be 
able to control Tidus once more. Just follow the Red Indicator on the map. 
You’ll meet Maester Mika and Maester Seymour here. After seeing this scene, 
you’ll be asked to save your game once more. At the Locker room, you’ll hear 
the news about the match. Luckily, you won’t have to face the Luca Goers for 
now. The first match will be against the Al Bhed Psyches. Now, you’ll be 
shown a massive tutorial for Blitz Ball. I do suggest that you go over these 
tutorials if you play for the first time. After that, Yuna will come in and 
informs you that Auron has been sighted in the city. Tidus will go with Yuna 
for a while. You’ll see a short scene with Tidus and the Al Bhed here. After 
that, when you regain control of Tidus once more, just follow Yuna towards 
the Red Indicator on the map. You may save your game on the way. At the bar, 
Auron isn’t found, but you’ll see Kimahri face 2 more of his Ronso “friends”. 
But then, the tournament has started. Then, Tidus will notice that Yuna is 
gone. Lulu will fill you in. Yuna is most likely to have been kidnapped. When 
you regain control, just follow the Red Indicator towards platform 4. You’ll 
have to battle some Machinas on the way. Just use Lulu’s Thunder Magic and 
you’ll be fine. You’ll also see Wakka giving it up to the Al Bhed since 
Yuna’s life is in danger. Then, Tidus and the party will catch up to an Al 
Bhed ship. You’ll have to battle a boss.

#############################################################################
BOSS: OBLITZERATOR
#############################################################################
HP:      6,000
AP:      36
Gil:     58
Items:   Elixir
Equip:   Metal Ring
Attacks: Physical Attacks
Steal:   n/a

This battle will be easy. First, let Tidus cast Haste on Lulu. Then, have 
Lulu use her Thunder Magic on the Crane a few times so that it will be 
activated. When it is activated, operate it using Tidus. It will destroy the 
machina and swill damage it by 5,500 HP! Use 1 more Thunder Magic on it to 
obliterate it.
#############################################################################

After that, Yuna will be safe. You will also know the lineage of Yuna. Then, 
Lulu will send a signal to Wakka that Yuna is safe. He will then give it one 
last shot to give the Aurochs their first taste of victory! After that, just 
follow the map to go back to the Locker Room. It’s Tidus’ time to show off 
his Blitz moves. After some scenes, you’ll regain control of Tidus. Go back 
inside the Locker Room and talk to Wakka. After that, the match begins with 
Tidus acting as the captain. Now, you’ll be playing real Blitz Ball yourself. 
The Luca Goers’ stats are very very high. Even if you are good at playing (if 
this is your second time through the game), you’ll have a hard time playing 
it. Tidus’ shooting is also weak and can’t penetrate easily through the 
goalie. Their shooters are excellent and can easily score from your goalie. 
During the second half, Wakka will come in and replace Tidus. The Luca Goers 
will most likely win but the Aurochs will prove that they are a team to be 
reckoned with. 

It is possible to win this Blitz Ball match. You just need to have the Jecht 
Shot ability. You should have acquired this while Tidus has a flashback of 
Jecht doing his Jecht Shot. With this ability, you’ll have a better chance of 
scoring even if there are 2 defenders in front of Tidus. After that, try your 
best not to allow the goers to score.

Thanks to the following for this info: 
James Weatherlight (djjclark@juno.com)
Matthew Cotnoir (andunaphel@earthlink.net)

After the match, Tidus will go to Wakka when suddenly, fiends appear and 
you’ll have to do battle with them. Just keep on fighting until you get out. 
Later, outside, you’ll be able to control Auron. One slash is all that is 
needed to beat the enemy. Then, Tidus and Wakka will finally meet him. You’ll 
do battle again. Use everything you’ve got. When all seems lost, Seymour 
comes in and demonstrates the power of his Aeon. It will pulverize all 
fiends. Nothing will be able to escape. Then, after those scenes, you’ll be 
asked to save your game once more. After that, you’ll see Wakka say his 
goodbye to his team. Then, you’ll see Auron. You’ll then hear the story of 
Auron. He will also reveal something about Jecht and Sin and that he is a 
guardian too. After that, when you regain control of Tidus, just follow the 
map and you’ll see your next destination. Then, go talk to Yuna and you’ll 
see her and Tidus do some laughing and whistling. Time to go to Djose.

In this area, while going through it, talk to people and you’ll receive 
various items from them. First, save your game. You’ll be given a notice that 
the Save Sphere has been improved to level 2 and now, you can play Blitz Ball 
at save points if you’d like. After that, move on. Talk to the old man by the 
statue and he’ll tell you more about Mi’ihen and the Crusaders. Continue. Get 
a Hunter’s Spear and 2 Antidotes on the way. Then, you’ll see ruins of an 
ancient machina city. You’ll be introduced to Maechen, the scholar. Then, get 
the Ice Brand behind the ruins. If you examine the center of the ruins, 
you’ll see some Al Bhed writings. You may not be able to read it even on your 
second game. Check out the Al Bhed primers section of this guide for more 
info. Continue north. You’ll see a short scene with the Djose Chocobo 
Knights. They’ll tell you about a fiend. When you regain control of the 
party, go to the ruins on the right. You’ll meet another summoner, Belgemine. 
She will challenge Yuna to a summoner battle. She’ll be using Ifrit and 
you’ll be using Valefor. This is a 1 on 1 match so no one can interfere. 
After the battle, you’ll be given the Seeker’s Bangle. She’ll also mention 
something about the past. After that, continue north to the next area.

In here, go east and get a Remedy. Continue heading east. You’ll see a scene 
with Cali and about the Calm. After that, continue. Get a Red Ring on the 
way. Continue towards the next area. In here, go north and get a Level 1 Key 
Sphere and 4 Antidotes on the way. When you reach a ruin to the right, go 
there and get 2000 Gil. Continue north and you’ll see a caravan. After that, 
move on. Get a Hi-Potion and 500 Gil on the way. You’ll then see Luzzu and 
Gatta at the ruins on the right. After that, continue north and you’ll meet 
up with an acolyte, Shelinda. After some talking with her, continue north and 
get 3 Eye Drops on the way. When you reach a shop, go in. You may save your 
game here and/or buy some items and equipments. After that, leave the shop 
and outside, talk to Yuna. There will be a long scene with them. After that, 
go back inside and save your game. Inside, talk to the person on the left and 
you’ll receive a Level 1 Key Sphere. You’ll also be taught on how to use the 
Sphere Grid. Then, you’ll meet the owner of the shop, Rin. He’ll tell you 
more about Al Bhed and their language. He’ll give you Vol. VIII of the Al 
Bhed Primer (check Al Bhed Primer section on this guide). Then, trouble 
arises outside. You’ll be given 2 Mega-Potions. Prepare for battle. Save your 
game then go out. Head north and you’ll meet...

#############################################################################
BOSS: CHOCOBO EATER

HP:      10,000
AP:      90
Gil:     970
Items:   none
Equip:   Moomba Mage
Attacks: Physical Attacks, Push
Steal:   n/a

You’ll need to kill the Chocobo Eater quickly if you want to defeat it. Your 
main concern is his push attack. If he manages to push you off the cliff, he 
wins. First, let Tidus cast Haste on everyone. Let the other characters 
attack or use Magic. But first, use Wakka’s Dark Attack on it to blind it. 
Then immediately, use Yuna’s Aeons. Try to gain a full Overdrive bar so that 
both Ifrit and Valefor can use overdrive attacks. If you attacked it 
properly, it will fall on its back. This time, attack it with everything 
you’ve got to push it back (thus preventing you from falling down the cliff). 
Just keep on doing this until it dies. 
#############################################################################

If you managed to defeat it, Rin and his assistant will thank you for dealing 
with that fiend. They will offer you a free Chocobo Ride. If did lose, your 
game won’t be over yet. You’ll just be using the road at the bottom. Let’s 
continue. First, save your game if you’d like so that your HP and MP will be 
replenished. Then, go out and talk to Rin’s assistant for a free Chocobo 
ride. Riding the Chocobo will stop fiends from attacking you, therefore there 
will be no random battles. Just continue until you reach the end. You’ll see 
an intersected there. The path to the right is the path to the bottom road, 
which you would have taken if you lose to the Chocobo Eater. Go there and get 
the Mars Crest and you’ll also meet O’aka. When you’re ready, to the north 
gate. You’ll be told to disembark the Chocobo. You may then save your game if 
you’d like. After that, talk to Summoner Dona twice. Continue north through 
the caravan and see Luzza and Gatta. After that, talk to the guy on the left. 
He’ll ask you for donations. You’ll be given something in return also.

100 Gil    - Scout
1,000 Gil  - Ice Lance
10,000 Gil - Moon Ring
0          - nothing

Thanks to: "Gerald Villoria" <gerald@gamespot.com> for the 10,000 prize info

Now, talk to the Gate Captain. Just ask him about the operation. Go back and 
you’ll see Seymour. He will help you to pass through the gate. Now, go north 
to the next area. You’ll see Seymour and the Crusaders. After that, you’ll 
see some scenes. When you regain control move on. Talk to people for an Ether 
and a Hi-Potion. Move on and at the intersection, you’ll meet up with Clasko. 
You’ll now have to go west.

======================
MUSHROOM ROCK - VALLEY
======================
Treasures: Hi-Potion x4, Potion x10, 1000 Gil, Remedy, X-Potion, Serene 
Armlet, Mega-Potion x2, Soft Ring, Phoenix Down x2, Ether

You’ll be battling fiends again. You’ll meet up with O’aka again. Move on and 
talk to people for a Hi-Potion. Use the elevator platform at the end. Talk to 
the man that you’ll see beside a chest. He’ll give you 10 Potions. Then, 
examine the chest for 1,000 Gil. Continue and you’ll eventually reach another 
chest that contains a Remedy. Move on and meet up once more with Shelinda. 
After that, get another chest on the way for another Hi-Potion. At the end, 
use the platform to go up. 

Next, talk to people on the way for a X-Potion. Go west to a spiral and get 
the Al Bhed Primer Vol. 10. Then, you’ll see a platform to the north and one 
to the west. Use the west platform first and get the Serene Armlet. Go back 
up then use the northern platform to go up. Talk to the people again for a 
Mega-Potion. Now, talk to Gatta. You’ll see a scene with him and Luzzu. Then, 
talk to Luzzu. He’ll tell you more about Wakka’s brother Chappu. After that, 
save your game and use the large platform to go up. Continue south to the 
next area. 

On top, you’ll see lots and lots of machina. Wakka will be mad. After more 
scenes, continue to the Command Center. You’ll meet up with Gatta, who is 
quite upset. Auron will teach some something. After that, go inside and 
you’ll meet Maester Kinoc. After the talk, prepare your party and save your 
game. Then, talk to the guard at the lower right corner of the command center 
(indicated by the red arrow on the map). When you’re ready, you’ll be dealing 
with another sinspawn.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SINSPAWN GUI

HP:      12,000 (Head: 2000, Arms: 800 each)
AP:      0
Gil:     0
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Physical Attacks, Thunder, Demi, Venom
Steal:   n/a

First, let’s talk about how Gui attacks. It uses all of its parts to attack, 
the head, body and arms. The head attacks using venom and magic. Both the 
body and the arms deal quite strong physical attacks. You have to remove both 
its arms in order to be able to hit its body with physical attacks (it won’t 
be able to block magical attacks to its body). Then, destroy the head 
immediately. Once the arms are gone, pummel its body as quickly as you can. 
You may use the Aeons to further deal damage to it.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
Auron should attack the arms while Wakka (or Lulu) hits the head. Also, the 
head does not regenerate, while the arms do. While this battle isn't too bad, 
many people have had difficulty with it. Also, note that the body's attack 
pattern is Demi, Attack, Demi, Attack - so if the head is dead, he can only 
kill one guy per two turns, tops. Stocking up of Phoenix Downs from O'aka 
guarantees victory.
#############################################################################

After the battle, you’ll see Sin itself. It will obliterate everything that 
stand in its way. After that, you’ll see Seymour and the Sinspawn. You’ll 
fight it again but this time, Seymour will be with you.

Steal:   n/a

With Seymour in your party, you’ll have a very easy time against it. Take 
note also that you can only use Auron and Yuna here. To beat the Sinspawn, 
just use Seymour’s Level 2 Magic attacks.
#############################################################################

After that, you’ll see a scene where Machina goes head to head with Sin. When 
you regain control of Tidus, go north and talk to Gatta. He’ll be hysterical. 
Then, Tidus will go after Sin. After that, you’ll be able to regain control 
of Tidus once more. Save your game. Talk to Auron and Kinoc. You’ll also see 
Yuna and Seymour. Then, talk to Auron. You’ll see more scenes here. When you 
regain control of Tidus, go west and get a Hi-Potion inside a chest. Follow 
the red arrow to the northeast. You’ll be able to hear Kimahri talk for the 
first time and smile! When you regain control, save then go north. On the 
way, talk to the people and receive a Soft Ring. Get a chest on the left side 
for 2 Phoenix Downs. Continue. Talk to the people again for Hi-Potion, Ether, 
and Mega Potion. At the intersection, you’ll see a short scene. Go north. 
Tidus and Auron will have a short conversation.

======================
DJOSE: PILGRIMAGE ROAD
======================
Treasures: 4000 Gil, Ability Sphere x4

Here, go north. Talk to Captain Lucil on the way. When you regain control, go 
west for 4,000 Gil. Then, go northeast. Check behind the house for Ability 
Sphere x4. You’ll see Gatta here. Then, buy some weapons and/or items from 
the merchant. Save your game and head for the temple.

============
DJOSE TEMPLE
============

Inside, you’ll meet a new Summoner. Isaaru and his 2 brother guardians. After 
a short conversation, you’ll be able to regain control of the party. Go up. 
Isaaru will talk to Tidus for a while about Summoners disappearing. Continue 
to the Cloister of Trials.

==========================
CLOISTER OF TRIALS - DJOSE
==========================
Treasures: Magic Sphere

First, put the 2 Djose Spheres on the door to open it. Go to the 2nd room. 
Here, you’ll see a pedestal and a symbol in the middle, 2 spheres beside the 
door, glittering panel/glyph to the left, and 2 recesses to the right. First, 
get the 2 Djose Spheres beside the door and put them one by one on each of 
the recesses on the right. Push the pedestal (w/ a Djose Sphere) to the right 
until it becomes a brighter Djose Sphere. Now, take the new Djose Sphere and 
put it on the recess to the right of the north door. It will open. Then, put 
the 2 Djose Spheres (at the right recesses) both on the pedestal. Then, push 
it forward until it drops on the electric currents. The pedestal will stay 
afloat. Jump on it and push the pedestal to the north, which will activate a 
part of the symbol. After that, go back to the symbol and go left. Step on 
the glittering panel. The pedestal will now be back at the center. Now, get 
the New Djose Sphere and put it on the recess to the left of the door. Next, 
get the 2 Djose Spheres on the pedestal and put them on the recesses back in 
the first room. The symbol will be complete and you can see a platform in the 
center. Step on it to move on. If you have the destruction sphere, take it up 
and put it in the lone pedestal to the south. It will reveal an opening to 
the treasure, which is a Magic Sphere.

At the next area, just push the 5 pedestals. Go up and talk to Lulu. Then, 
Dona will appear. You’ll see a scene with Barthello and Auron. After that, 
when you regain control, talk to everyone and try to leave. Yuna will come 
out of the chamber. You’ll then be asked to name the 3rd aeon, Ixion.

============
DJOSE TEMPLE
============
Treasures: Hi-Potion x2, Halberd, Potion x10

Outside, talk to everyone. Then, go back inside and go to the upper right 
door. Talk to the woman beside the bed. Yuna will wake up and they will go 
back to the party. You’ll see a short scene outside. When you regain control, 
go south and keep following the red indicator on the overhead map. Talk to 
people on the way for Hi-Potion x2, Halberd, Potion x10. You’ll then meet up 
with Lucil of the Chocobo Knights. Just continue south afterwards. At an 
intersection, head north and you’ll reach the moonflow.

========
MOONFLOW
========
Treasures: X-Potion, Lv.1 Key Sphere x3, Dragon Scales x2, Summoner’s Soul, 
Magic Def. Sphere, Phoenix Down x2, 5000 Gil

Just continue to the Red Indicator on the map. You’ll see Shelinda on the way 
as well as 2 other Ronsos who are picking on Kimahri. They will also warn 
about the missing Summoners. When you regain control, get a chest for an X-
Potion. Continue once again and get another chest with a Level 1 Key Sphere 
x3 at the right side of the road. Then, you’ll meet up with Belgemine. Yuna 
will have to fight her with Aeons. Just use Ifrit and Valefor since Belgemine 
will be using the new Ixion. If you win, you’ll get 2 Dragon Scales and a 
Summoner’s soul. You can now let your Aeons learn abilities. After that, go 
on and get a Magic Defense Sphere on a narrow path on the left side of the 
right. Move on.

At the next area, continue north and you’ll see the Moonflow itself. Then, 
you’ll be able to see the elephant-like shoopuf. When you regain control of 
Tidus, get the Phoenix Down x2 then continue west to the next screen. You’ll 
see Lucil and her knights trying to deal with the person in charge about the 
Chocobo. After that, save your game and talk to Wakka and Lulu. Then, get the 
chest behind them for 5,000 Gil. Next, talk to the driver and you’ll have the 
Shoopuf ride. You’ll see some scenes during the ride, then Yuna will be 
caught by the Al Bhed! Tidus and Wakka will come to the rescue.

#############################################################################
BOSS: EXTRACTOR
#############################################################################
HP:      4,000
AP:      600
Gil:     2,400
Items:   Mega Potion x2
Equip:   Moon Ring
Attacks: Aqua Shooter, Depth Charges
Steal:   n/a

To beat the extractor, have Tidus use his Delay Attack ability to give chance 
to both him and Wakka to attack more. Not to mention, putting both of them on 
haste is a very good strategy. You just have to watch out the extractor when 
it pulls up. It is readying its Depth Charge attack which can decimate both 
Tidus and Wakka in a single blow. To prevent this, just attack the extractor 
until it comes back down.
#############################################################################

You’ll see more scenes on the shoopuf after that. When you reach the north 
wharf, save your game and go all the way to the west. You’ll meet up again 
with Rikku. You’ll see some scenes here where Rikku tells her story to the 
girls and about her being a guardian of Yuna. After that, continue north to 
the North Bank.

===================
MOONFLOW NORTH BANK
===================
Treasures: Antidote x4, Mega-Potion

On the way, you’ll have a weird battle. You’ll see a chest. Use Rikku’s steal 
ability to get its contents. Continue afterwards. Get a chest on the way for 
Antidote x4. Move on and get another chest on the way for a Mega-Potion. At 
the end, you’ll reach Guadosalam.

==========
GUADOSALAM
==========
Treasures: Elixir, Mega-Potion, Hi-Potion x2

You’ll be greeted by Tromell Guado. He will tell you that Seymour is waiting 
for Yuna. After that, Rikku will tell you more about Customizing equipments. 
When you regain control, go inside the inn. Save your game inside. Leave the 
inn. Go up and head south for a chest with an Elixir. Go to the house on the 
west. Get a Mega-Potion at the upper right corner. Don’t forget also that you 
can recruit some of the Guado to play for your Blitz Ball Team. After that, 
go inside the mansion to the north. Go upstairs and get a hidden chest at the 
center for Hi-Potion x2. Now, talk to everyone. Tromell will then come in and 
will ask you to go through the door below. Go inside. Talk again to everyone 
then Seymour will come in. He will show you the thoughts of the people on the 
farplane. You’ll see Zanarkand and Yunalesca. Then, Seymour will whisper 
something to Yuna. He wants to marry Yuna. Everyone will be surprised. When 
you regain control after that scene, leave the mansion and go to the north 
east towards the Farplane. Auron and Rikku will stay behind. At the farplane, 
you’ll see the thoughts and memories of the dead. When you regain control, 
talk to Wakka then Lulu. Finally, talk to Yuna. You’ll see Tidus’ flashbacks. 
After that, when you leave the farplane, Jyscal will try to come out. Yuna 
sends him. When you regain control, go back to the mansion. You’ll see some 
scenes. Keep on talking to Lulu. You’ll be asked later whom you like (I chose 
Lulu). After that, go down and go east to the path to the Thunder Plains. 
You’ll see Shelinda. Continue. Outside, you’ll see a scene with Yuna. You’ll 
also hear Tidus say Macarena instead of Macalania. Continue to the Thunder 
Plains.

==============
THUNDER PLAINS
==============
Treasures: Phoenix Down x2, Hi-Potion x2, Water Ball, Yellow Shield

Rikku will be very scared of the Lightning. You’ll be told that you can take 
shelter at the Lightning Rod Towers. Or, you may dodge the lightning by 
pressing X just as the Lightning flashes. When you regain control, go north 
and get a chest for Phoenix Downs. Save your game. Then, get 2 Hi-Potions 
from a chest to the west of the Save Sphere.

Now, go north and you’ll see a Cactuar Stone. Examine it using Square. But I 
still don’t know what its actual use is. At the next tower, you’ll see 
Shelinda again. You’ll be asked about the Marriage. Now, go north and veer 
off to the east for a Water Ball. You’ll see another Cactuar Stone. Continue 
north. You’ll see a scene where Rikku tries to convince everyone to rest for 
a while. She’ll do so. Now, inside, you’ll see a scene with Rin and Auron. 
He’ll give you the Al Bhed Primer volume XIV. Save your game then go to Yuna. 
You’ll see Yuna and a sphere. After resting, talk to Rikku. Outside, when you 
regain control, go north and get the Yellow Shield lying on the ground. Go to 
the next area. You’ll see another Cactuar Stone. Continue north and you’ll 
see another stone to the right. Continue north towards another save sphere. 
You’ll see a scene with Yuna talking about her marriage to Seymour. From 
here, just move on until you reach the Macalania Woods.

===============
MACALANIA WOODS
===============
Treasures: 2000 Gil

Save your game first. Then, use the top path first and get 2,000 Gil on the 
way. Then, you’ll meet up with Barthello. He’ll tell you that Dona is gone. 
Continue on and you’ll reach a place where you can catch some Butterflies 
(see Butterfly Catching section). Just move on along the long path. At the 
end, save your game. You may also buy again from O’aka here. Move on and then 
Auron will show you something. First, you’ll have to fight another fiend.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SPHERIMORPH
#############################################################################
HP:      11,400
AP:      3,000
Gil:     3,800
Items:   Lv. 2 Key Sphere
Equip:   White Armlet
Attacks: Press, Physical and Magical Attacks
Steal:   Ether

The best way to defeat spherimorph is to use magic attacks that have an 
element opposite of that of the spherimorph. You may use Lulu’s Black Magic 
attacks. But the most useful perhaps are the aeons. If the spherimorph has a 
fire element, using ifrit will be a good idea since the attacks of 
spherimorph will just heal Ifrit. Ifrit can then attack until spherimorph is 
defeated. This goes the same for Ixion.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
I thought the Ifrit strategy was really good. If you call at Ifrit 
immediately and attack, chances are you will not lose. However, this takes 
FOREVER. I went back to him recently and found that this battle is much 
simpler than I thought. Have Yuna, Lulu, and a third character. Have the 
third character attack (finding out his element from the counterattack), Lulu 
use the opposite, and Yuna heal. You'd be amazed how much more quickly he 
dies.
#############################################################################

After that, get Jecht’s Sphere. Tidus will play it back. You’ll see Jecht’s 
memories. You’ll then be told that Jecht’s sphere are scattered throughout 
the world (see Jecht’s Sphere section). After that, go back. You’ll have a 
short talk with Auron. Continue north. At the shop, get the Al Bhed Primer 
Vol. XVI just outside the shop wall. Move on. You’ll see another scene with 
Tromell Guado here. Yuna will go to seymour alone. But then, the Al Bhed 
comes in again and tried another shot at Yuna. You’ll have to fight one of 
their machines again.

#############################################################################
BOSS: CRAWLER / NEGATOR
#############################################################################
HP:      16,000 / 1,000
AP:      6,820
Gil:     6,800
Items:   Potion, Elixir
Equip:   Lifegiver
Attacks: Gatling Gun, Assault, Mana Beam
Steal:   ?

First of all, you have to take care of the Negator since it will prevent you 
from using any magical skill. It’s easy since it has a pretty low HP. After 
that, use your Aeons to finish the job. If that isn’t enough, use magic 
attacks (especially Thunder/Lightning) and use your strong characters (Tidus, 
Wakka, Auron) for physical attacks. 

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
If you have used Lulu adequately, by now, she should have Thundara. Use Wakka 
to defeat the Negator. Now, instead of just bringing the aeons out 
immediately, get a couple hits with Lulu in. If he counterattacks (900-1000 
damage), she will probably die; just revive her. Continue this until there's 
one turn until the Mana Beam. Only on your last turn, use an Aeon, and then 
use Shield. You may want to then keep your Aeon in, because you have a while 
until the next Mana Beam. If he brings out the Negator, you get to use the 
Aeon, but he can't use the Mana Beam! Also, Ixion's Thor's Hammer does a lot 
of damage. Mainly, just block Mana Beam with Aeons and use Thundara a lot.
#############################################################################

Rikku will then be revealed to Wakka. After that, you’ll ride the 
snowmobiles. You’ll see a scene where Tidus and Lulu are talking to each 
other on the snowmobile. Go to the temple.

================
MACALANIA TEMPLE
================

You’ll see Shelinda inside. After that, save and then one attendants will see 
a sphere in Yuna’s belongings. Go to that room and you’ll see Jyscal’s 
message about Seymour. Enter the Cloister. You’ll see Seymour there. Then, 
Yuna comes out and rejoins the party. You’ll now have to fight Seymour.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SEYMOUR / 2 Guado Guardians
#############################################################################
HP:      6,000 / 2,000 each
AP:      7,620
Gil:     8,600
Items:   Ability Sphere x6, Black Magic Sphere x2
Equip:   Magical Armlet, Scout, Eye Popper, Reticent Staff
Attacks: Slow, Level 2 Black Magic, Level 3 Black Magic, Protect
         Anima (8,000 HP): Pain, Boost
Steal:   ?

Seymour is tough. Use 1 of your aeons (except ????) at once so that Seymour 
will be defeated. Another problem would be the guardians. They have the Auto-
Potion ability that will automatically heal them 1000 HPs after being 
damaged. They also protect Seymour from your physical attacks. After beating 
Seymour, he will summon his aeon, Anima. Your main goal should be to finish 
it before its Overdrive becomes available. Use all your Aeons especially 
????, or Shiva. After beating Anima, you’ll have to do battle with Seymour 
for the last time.

Strategy from: Lam aka Silpheed_EX
----------------------------------
First, to remove the Auto-Potion ability of the Guado Guardians, take Rikku 
and use her steal ability on these 2 guards and she'll "steal" the potions. 
So they can't use their potions anymore. For the first Seymour, Use all 4 
guard skills from Yuna on your party, so Seymour's spells have no effect on 
you. To kill Anima use ???/Shiva but use only your normal attack until your 
overdrive is ready, use the blizzard spells on yourself every round in order 
to heal yourself. As for the second Seymour, use the same strategy as the 
first one.

Extra Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------------
only use Blizzara when Shiva's HP gets low. Use her Overdrive only when Anima 
is at about 9,000 HP, guaranteeing a kill.
#############################################################################

After Seymour is defeated, you’ll be asked to give a name to Shiva. Save your 
game. From this point onwards, you won’t be able to play blitz ball for a 
while. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to play again later in the game. Now, go 
east to the next area. It seems that it is an easy way out but then, you’ll 
have to complete the Cloister of Trials.

=====================================
CLOISTER OF TRIALS - MACALANIA TEMPLE
=====================================

Here, go down. You’ll see 2 Icebergs, 2 Macalania Spheres, and a Glyph 
Sphere. First, push the pedestal to the right and then up. This will break 
the 2 icebergs. Now, get the glyph sphere and go down to the floor below. Put 
the Glyph Sphere on the leftmost recess. A new Macalania Sphere will appear 
on the floor above. Go up and get that sphere. Put it on the pedestal below 
and push it to the right. You’ll see a part of the bridge appear. Next, go up 
and get the rightmost Macalania Sphere. Put it on the pillar on the bottom 
floor. You’ll see the second part of the bridge appear. Now, go up and get 
the remaining Macalania sphere on the floor and put it in the pillar where 
you got the Glyph sphere a while ago. You can now cross the ice bridge. Note 
that if you step on the glittering floor panel on top you’ll be able to get a 
Destruction sphere. Putting it on the left recess on the bottom floor will 
reveal a treasure chest a bit south.

================
MACALANIA TEMPLE
================
Treasures: Level 2 Key Sphere

Now, just as you are leaving, Tromell will come in. The party will be trapped 
and framed. Everyone will run. Outside, keep on running. The Guado Guardians 
will follow you. Just defeat them when they come close. At the end, you’ll 

#############################################################################
BOSS: WENDIGO / 2 Guado Guardians
#############################################################################
HP:      18,000 / 1,200 each
AP:      3,160
Gil:     3,800
Items:   Ability Sphere x4, Power Sphere x2
Equip:   none
Attacks: Physical Attacks, Berserk
Steal:   Hi-potion

Here, just beat the 2 Guardians as quick as possible since they cast berserk 
on the Wendigo that makes it very very destructive. If possible cure Wendigo 
from Berserk and concentrate on defeating the 2 guardians. After beating 
them, concentrate all attacks on the Wendigo. It has a very strong defense. 
If its arms are on a defensive stance, it means that if you attack it, it 
will counter attack with a strong physical attack. Get your healers ready. 
Use Aeons as much as possible.

Extra Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------------
Esuna and Remedy cure Beserk. Only use this after killing the Guados, 
however.
#############################################################################

After that, save your game. Talk to your party members. It will be quite 
longer than usual. When you regain control, go north and get a Level 2 Key 
Sphere to the right of Kimahri. Continue. You’ll see a flashback of Tidus. 
After that, you’ll see Sin hearing the hymn at Macalania. You’ll then be able 
to regain control at the oasis.

=====
OASIS
=====
Treasures: Al Bhed Potion x24, Ether x2, X-Potion x2, Megalixir x3, Mercury 
Crest

Save your game here. The party will be gone for now. Just head north. During 
a battle, you’ll meet up with Auron and Lulu. Continue north and you’ll see 
Wakka. Get the Al Bhed Potion here. Continue to the next area. At an 
intersection, go east for Kimahri. After that, go back and head northwest. 
Continue until you meet Rikku. She’ll tell you more as to where you are now. 
After that, get the chest here for 2 Ethers. Get another chest for an Al Bhed 
Potion. Save your game inside the machina. From here on, just follow Rikku. 

At a clearing, go west for some X-Potions. Go north and save at another Save 
Sphere. You’ll see a note here. Get the chest behind for another set of Al 
Bhed Potions. Continue to the next area. You can get the chest here for 3 
Megalixirs but you’ll have to fight the Sandragora. Continue north. You’ll 
see the home of the Al Bhed being attacked by Bevelle.

At the West Sanubia Desert, you can acquire the Mercury Crest.

============
AL BHED HOME
============
Treasures: Hi-Potion x2, Al Bhed Potion x6, Special Sphere, Level 2 Key 
Sphere, Level 4 Key Sphere, 10000 Gil

You’ll see Cid here talking about Yuna. When you regain control go west for 
the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XIX. Then, examine a body here for 2 Hi-Potions. Go 
northeast and save your game. Then, go inside. You’ll do more battles here. 
Just follow Rikku towards the underground. Below, you’ll see an intersection 
that goes to a couple of directions. To the north, there will be Al Bhed 
Potions. To the northeast is a compilation sphere. You also have to do battle 
in order to get the chest for the Special sphere. Go back to the intersection 
and go west. Save your game and go inside the door. You’ll see the party 
here. You’ll have to battle once more.  When you regain control go down. 
Tidus will be mad here. Just move on. Before entering the door below, search 
around for a Level 4 and a Level 2 Key Spheres. Go inside. You’ll see the 
Summoners here. Rikku will tell Tidus the truth about the Summoners and their 
journeys towards the final aeon. You’ll see some flashbacks here. When you 
regain control of Tidus, search around for 10,000 Gil. Go out and move on 
until you reach the airship.

=======
AIRSHIP
=======

You’ll see more scenes again. You’ll know more about the Al Bhed here. When 
you regain control, save your game then talk to everyone on board, especially 
to Auron. Then, talk to Cid again. You’ll see him talking to Auron. Talk to 
the pilot. He’ll tell everyone that Yuna is at Bevelle with Seymour! Prepare 
your party then save your game. Talk to your party members then go south. The 
ship will be attacked by something. You’ll have to fight it first. Leave the 
bridge and go to the top floor. You’ll see the giant fiend here. Talk to Rin 
then go outside to the deck. The battle begins.

#############################################################################
BOSS: EVRAE

Gil:     2,500
Items:   Black Magic Sphere
Equip:   Gorgon Gaze
Attacks: Photon Spray, Poison Breath, Haste, Stone Gaze, Swooping Scythe
Steal:   Water Gem

Here, you have 2 options. You may either attack Evrae from afar or move in 
for the kill. From afar, the airship will provide you with support. All you 
have to worry about is the photon spray. Just use Wakka or Lulu when fighting 
at a distance. If you decide to fight in-close, use your most powerful 
attackers (Tidus, Auron, or Wakka/Kimahri). Let Tidus cast Haste on everyone. 
Also, have Rikku on standby just in case you need those Al Bhed Potions.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
note that his attacks are rather weak up close until he inhales. Then, make 
sure you move back, and his big attack fails.
#############################################################################

You’ll reach Bevelle afterwards.

=======
BEVELLE
=======

The airship will crash and the party will head for Yuna in amazing display of 
a FMV. Near the altar, just move on and fight through the guards. When you 
reach Yuna, you’ll see her try to send Seymour. But the party will be killed 
if she does it. Then, you’ll see something awful. Seymour will kiss Yuna! But 
then the party is still in danger. Yuna will sacrifice herself so that the 
party can escape. You’ll see some scenes and a FMV. You’ll then find 
yourselves inside the temple.

============================
CLOISTER OF TRIALS - BEVELLE
============================
Treasures: HP Sphere

Inside, you’ll see lots and lots of machina. Wakka will be the most 
frustrated. Now, go inside the trails. Here, you’ll have to push the pedestal 
in order to activate the moving platform. First press the X key when you 
reach a direction panel. Press at the direction here. You’ll automatically go 
left. Now, on the next intersection, go left and get the Bevelle Sphere and 
put it on the pedestal. You’ll have to place it on the opposite side (by 
turning right at the intersection). This will enable a new direction on the 
first intersection (where you automatically went left). Now, go to this 
intersection and you may now head north towards the next floor below. In this 
next intersection, go south first towards another floor below (3rd basement). 
Get the Bevelle Sphere here. Now, go back to the 2nd floor basement. You’ll 
see 3 more intersections within. Go to the 3rd intersection and put 1 Bevelle 
Sphere on the recess. It will create a makeshift bridge. Now, go back to the 
2nd intersection and get the Glyph Sphere. Put it at the end of the makeshift 
bridge at the 3rd intersection. A Destruction Sphere will appear. Get it and 
put it on the recess at the 2nd intersection. Now, use the 1st intersection 
in this floor. It will lead you to the floor above. 

On top, go up the stairs and get the HP Sphere. Go east from here to reach 
the Chamber of the Fayth where you’ll see Yuna praying to the fayth. Outside, 
Kinoc will be waiting for the party. You’ll then be captured for a trial. 
Name Bahamut afterwards. You’ll then be asked to save your game. 

On the next scene, you’ll see the trial being held. The head of trials is 
Maester Kelk Ronso. You’ll see various scenes here. I won’t spoil anything in 
this trial. After that, you’ll find yourselves controlling Yuna in Via 
Purifico.

============
VIA PURIFICO
============
Treasures: Elixir

First, save your game. You’ll see panels with arrows here. It will be long 
and it might as well be as confusing as can be. ^_^ First, at the 
intersection, go west and go south at the next one for an elixir. Touch the 
glyph. Go all the way to the north then head right. You’ll meet up with 
Auron. Save your game. Continue north and you’ll meet Isaaru. Yuna will have 
an aeon match with him.

#############################################################################
BOSS: ISAARU
#############################################################################
HP:      n/a
AP:      none
Gil:     none
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Various
Steal:   n/a

Isaaru will use 3-4 aeons depending on what you use. The best way is to use 
any aeon except for Bahamut. Just beat his aeons and then, he’ll summon 
Bahamut. Use all your remaining aeons. The best aeons against Bahamut would 
definitely be Shiva and Ixion. Or, you may use Bahamut at first and try your 
best to defeat all 4 of the other aeons. If not, he’ll summon Bahamut when 
your Bahamut expires. You wouldn’t want to run out of aeons.
#############################################################################

After the battle, you’ll be controlling Tidus, Wakka, and Rikku underwater. 
First, save your game and move on. The path will be straightforward. Continue 
until you reach the second save sphere. Move on and you’ll meet up with the 
boss. 

#############################################################################
BOSS: EVRAE ALTANA
#############################################################################
HP:      17,500+
AP:      5,700
Gil:     3,000
Items:   Black Magic Sphere
Equip:   Break Knuckles
Attacks: Stone Gaze, Photon Spray
Steal:   Healing Spring, Water Gem

Here, you’ll see a gate during the battle. Just hit those 2 locks and the 
gate will open giving you a chance to escape. There will be 2 gates. After 
the 2nd gate, you’ll be fighting Evrae Altana on the other side of the gate. 
This time, it won’t be able to counter attack any of your move. But he still 
can use his abilities. Just let Tidus cast haste on everyone and let Wakka do 
the status effect attacks. As for Rikku, let here use an Al Bhed potion of 
necessary.

Strategy from: BLAH sdfgs (bsdfgs@yahoo.com)
--------------------------------------------
To beat Evrae Altana easily, just use 2 Phoenix Downs on it. It will deal max 
damage to it and thus, killing it.
#############################################################################

After that, the party will be reunited. Then and there, Seymour and his band 
of weirdos will come in. You’ll see Seymour transform in front of the party. 
Kimahri will be left behind. But then, they are together in this and they 
should leave no one behind. The party decides to battle on. 

#############################################################################
BOSS: SEYMOUR NATUS / MORTIBODY
#############################################################################
HP:      36,000 / varied

Equip:   Shell Armguard
Attacks: Break, Flare, Banish (for Aeons), Multi-Magic Attacks, 
Mortibsorption,
         Level 1 and/or 2 Magic Attacks, Shattering Claw
Steal:   Tetra Elemental

Here, you can talk to Seymour. For Tidus, his strength will be increase and 
so does Auron. As for Yuna, it’ll increase her Magic Defense. First, use your 
aeons until you don’t have any left. The Moritibody will borrow some HP from 
Seymour when you defeat it. It starts at 4,000 and it decreases as you defeat 
it. I suggest that you protect and shell your party members since Seymour is 
very strong. Let Auron use the breaks to ease out the battle.
#############################################################################

After that, you’ll regain control. Talk to everyone and go south towards the 
screen. Continue until you see Kimahri. Talk to Yuna. You’ll see a very long 
scene and a cool FMV of the romance between the 2. You’ll also here the song 
for this game. It’s in Japanese though. After that, go back to the party. 
Continue on until you reach the Calm Lands.

==========
CALM LANDS
==========
Treasures: Lv. 2 Key Sphere, Rusty Sword, 5000 Gil, 10000 Gil

Here, the area is very very wide. There are lots and lots of ground to cover. 
First, save your game. You’ll see some scenes first. After that, go northwest 
towards a small encampment. Get a Level 2 Key Sphere behind the camp. At the 
camp, you’ll see more scenes with Father Zuke. After that, save then talk to 
everyone. Take note that you can play Blitz Ball once more. Now, leave the 
camp and head northeast. On the way, you’ll be able to see an opening at the 
mountain side. It is the training arena. (more on this on its own section in 
this guide). You may save behind the man here. The Save Sphere is inside the 
tent. After monster hunting (if you went through it), continue to the 
northeast until you reach the next area. You can also head Southeast and get 
2 chests there for 5,000 and 10,000 Gil each. Here, you’ll meet up with some 
Guado Guardians. They have something to fight against you.

#############################################################################
BOSS: DEFENDER X

HP:      64,000
AP:      9,900
Gil:     3,500
Items:   Level 2 Key Sphere x2
Equip:   none
Attacks: Blast Punch, Haymaker
Steal:   Lunar Curtain

This boss is very powerful indeed. First, use Armor Break to lower its 
physical defenses. Use your aeons and let Lulu pummel Defender X with 
powerful Black Magic Attacks. Get your Phoenix Downs ready since Haymaker is 
almost a surefire kill for anyone.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
If you provoke Defender X, he will only use his half-HP attack on Tidus. Even 
at 1 HP, this won't kill him. You can take him from there with no worries. 
Armor Break is also very, very useful.
#############################################################################

After the battle, go near the bridge. Lulu will tell you something about a 
path below the bridge. Go under the bridge and continue west towards the next 
area. Here, save your game then go towards the entrance to a cave. You’ll see 
a short scene then continue inside. Also, from the save point, if you 
continue south, you’ll be able to get a Rusty Sword on the way. Let’s move 
on.

==========================
CAVERN OF THE STOLEN FAYTH
==========================
Treasures: Megalixir, Lv. 2 Key Sphere, Mega-Potion x2, MP Sphere, X-Potion 
x2, Flexible Arm

Inside the cavern, move on until you see an intersection. Go east for a 
Megalixir. Go back and head north this time. You’ll see more scenes. Continue 
north and at another intersection, go east and get a Lv. 2 Key Sphere. Go 
back to the intersection and head west. Get a chest on the way for some Mega-
Potions. Save your game and then, you’ll meet up with Lady Ginnem. You’ll 
have to beat her.

#############################################################################
BOSS: LADY GINNEM / YOJIMBO
#############################################################################
HP:      n/a
AP:      0
Gil:     0
Items:   none
Equip:   none
Attacks: Wakizashi, Daigoro
Steal:   n/a

Use everything you’ve got. Just keep on attacking and pray that you’ll reach 
maximum overdrive. Just keep on pummeling yojimbo as quickly as possible so 
that he won’t reach overdrive and defeat your aeons.
#############################################################################

After that, you’ll see a floor panel that will take you to any 4 directions. 
Just face that direction (confirm it with the green arrow) and press X. Go 
right first and get a MP Sphere and an X-Potion x2. On the left, you’ll be 
able to acquire the Flexible Arm. After that, go to the chamber of the fayth. 
Here, you’ll be able to see Yojimbo. He will offer his services to you only 
if you pay his offer of around 250,000+ Gil. After that, go back to the 
entrance and save your game. Go back up and cross the bridge now towards Mt. 
Gagazet. You’ll see some short scenes here. 

===========
MT. GAGAZET
=========== 
Treasures: Mega-Potion x2, Defending Bracer, Lv. 1 Key Sphere, Fortune Sphere

Here, the Ronsos will stop you from passing through since the party is 
branded as traitors to Yevon. But then, Yuna’s will to give spira a new hope 
reached the heart of Maester Kelk Ronso and he will then welcome the party to 
pass through the mountain. When you regain control, save your game and then 
continue north. At the next screen, Biran and Yenke won’t stop the party from 
passing through except for Kimahri. You’ll have to face both of them using 
Kimahri only.

#############################################################################
BOSS: BIRAN & YENKE
#############################################################################
HP:      ?/?
AP:      8,000
Gil:     3,000
Items:   Return Sphere
Equip:   Halberd x2
Attacks: Thrust Kick, Aqua Breath, Stone Breath, White Wind
Steal:   Lvl. 3 Key Sphere

First of all, you should know that Kimahri will be able to learn lots of 
Ronso Rages from these 2. The strategy here is all about Hi-Potions. When you 
reach the critical level (yellow), use a Hi-Potion or else these 2 will be 
able to defeat Kimahri. Next, in order to beat them, concentrate attacks on 
1. Then, only attack when they are apart from each other. Because if they are 
together, you won’t be able to do much damage since the other will just block 
the attack. This will be easy but very long.
#############################################################################

After the battle, you’ll see more scenes. Go back and save then continue 
north. You’ll see the Ronso tribe sing the Hymn of Yevon. When you regain 
control, veer off to the left for some Mega-potions. Continue north. You’ll 
see a grave of a previous summoner. After that, just continue towards the Red 
Indicator on the map. At an intersection, go north. You’ll see Braska’s 
Sphere. You’ll view his memories with Jecht and Auron. Continue through the 
long path afterwards. You’ll reach the 2nd grave. Continue to another 
intersection, go west and you’ll get a Defending Bracer there. Go back to the 
intersection and head north. It will be a long long way. You’ll then meet 
Wantz on the way, the brother of O’aka. Move on to the 3rd grave. At the next 
intersection, go south (up). Finally, save your game and prepare for a tough 
battle ahead. Now, continue north and you’ll see a scene with Rikku and 
Tidus. Then, Seymour will appear and will tell you what he did to the Ronso. 
After that, the 3rd battle with Seymour begins.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SEYMOUR FLUX / MORTIORCHIS
#############################################################################
HP:      70,000 / varies
AP:      15,000
Gil:     6,000
Items:   Lv. 4 Key Sphere x2
Equip:   Shell Bangle
Attacks: Banish, Lance of Atrophy, Full-Life
Steal:   Elixir

Here’s a new strategy. First, the Lance of Atrophy inflicts the Zombie Status 
on anyone. This is bad since you cannot heal that party member since it will 
just decrease his/her HP. You can use Holy Water if you have them. Now, 
before entering the battle, I would really suggest that you come in with your 
Aeons on full overdrive so that it is worth it to call them even if they are 
banished. Your Aeons’ overdrives should be damaging Seymour by a flat 9,999 
by now.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
Possibly the hardest battle. At 60,000 (or was it 50,000?), Seymour uses 
Protect, so if you're going to use Physical Attacks, use them then. You can 
prepare Auron and Yuna with Zombie Ward armor, so that he may waste the first 
three turns. After three turns, he uses Cross-Cleave. Either use Hastega and 
pummel him to 35,000, or let Auron survive and hope Zombie Ward works. 
Anybody else will probably die. At 35,000, he will cast Reflect on himself, 
and then Reflect Flare. Then, he will wait for Total Annihilation. You will 
not survive this. Thus, make sure you have at least two Aeons in Overdrive 
and Yuna in Overdrive (3 Aeons total). Each will do about 9,000 -10,000 
damage, which is 30,000 total, and when you add what Mortiorchis absorbs, 
he'll be dead. If not, let Auron or Tidus attack between summons. Make SURE 
Yuna is in Haste before he hits 35,000, however.

Strategy from: agcanvasproject@msn.com
--------------------------------------
Have Rikku in overdrive and mix Electro Marble and Silent Grenade.
This will poison him, taking 1500 hp at a time.  It will even silence him 
for a few turns.  This makes it a good bit easier to beat him.
#############################################################################

After that, you’ll see more scenes here. Go to the save sphere and save. 
Continue and you’ll see a weird scene on the next screen. Tidus will have a 
scene on his own about the fayth and their dreams. Some very shocking 
revelations are shown here. During the dream, just continue north and you’ll 
talk to the fayth (fayth of Bahamut, the kid). After that, enter the door at 
the north end. Continue talking to the fayth. After that, Tidus will return 
back to the party. Continue north and save your game. Go northwest and you’ll 
reach the waters. You’ll then have to use only Tidus, Wakka, and Rikku during 
the underwater scenes. At the water, continue towards the next screen. At an 
intersection, go north. You’ll see the first trial of Gagazet. The Blitz Ball 
Challenge. You’ll have to time it right that Wakka hits the center with the 
blitz ball. After successfully hitting it, get the chest for a Lv. 1 Key 
Sphere. Go back south to the previous area and save. Go north and at the 
intersection, go west through the water. You’ll see the 2nd challenge of Mt. 
Gagazet. You’ll have to simultaneously active the 3 nodes but the sizes 
should be appropriate. At the leftmost node, use Tidus. At the center, use 
Wakka. Finally at the right, use Rikku. Get the chest underwater for the 
Fortune sphere. Go back and save. Now, go up ad see an intersection on the 
left side of the screen that is composed of tiles of stones that makes a 
stone stairs. You’ll see more scenes and you’ll know more about Yunalesca 
from Auron. Save your game at a Save Sphere here. Prepare your party then 
move on. You’ll fight a fiend outside.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SANCTUARY KEEPER
#############################################################################
HP:      40,000
AP:      16,500
Gil:     6,500
Items:   Return Sphere
Equip:   Arc Sword
Attacks: Photon Wings, Tail Sweep, Haste, Mana Breath, Curaga
Steal:   Turbo Ether

This is another tough boss. Use Tidus’ slow to give you a slight advantage 
over it. Again, use your overdriven aeons. You’ll most likely beat it with 
all your 5 aeons. If not, just let Auron Break the Armor or the Magic Defense 
(Mental) and use physical and magical attacks.

Strategy from: Mark Lykins (zombie195@hotmail.com)
--------------------------------------------------
You may prevent the Sanctuary Keeper from using either Haste or Curaga by 
casting Reflect on it. 

Strategy from: Vegeta615282@aol.com
-----------------------------------
There is another way to do battle with the Sanctuary Keeper. Cast Bio on it 
and then reflect for double effect.
#############################################################################

After the battle, you’ll see more scenes. Continue on until you see 
Zanarkand. After that, Yuna will drop something and Tidus will view it. It 
seems like Braska’s sphere where he says his final words. After that, keep on 
going until you reach Zanarkand itself.

=========
ZANARKAND
=========
Treasures: Fortune Sphere, Spiritual Targe

In here, there will be no enemies yet. You’ll see the opening scene here that 
is the same scene you saw when you begin your game. When you regain control 
afterwards, save your game. Move on and the enemies will be back. Get a 
Fortune Sphere on the way. Get another one with a Spiritual Targe. Move on 
and save at the end. Go inside the dome.

==============
ZANARKAND DOME
==============

Inside, you’ll see the memories of the previous summoners and their 
guardians. Continue and save on the way. Move on and you’ll see Seymour’s. 
Then finally, you’ll see the memories of Braska, Jecht, and Auron. You’ll see 
them again at the end. Save your game there.

Here, you’ll see the final cloister of trials. These trials will test your 
memory. On the first screen, you’ll see some shapes on the wall screen. It’s 
just like the Tetris blocks. Now, there will be glittering panels on the 
ground that correspond to a particular shape. You’ll need to step on those 
that are needed to complete the shapes on the monitor. After that, 6 
pedestals will appear. 2 of them cannot be moved yet. Now, move any 1 of the 
4 that can be moved. Go north and continue to the next room. You’ll see 
another wall screen, 2 spheres (let’s talk about this later), and a new set 
of glittering floor panels. Now, examine the screen and the shapes will be 
shown among the glittering panels. You’ll have to step on them in order to 
complete the puzzle. If you made a mistake, you’ll have to repeat again. You 
may view the wall screen if you can’t memorize the positions yet. After that, 
do this to the other 5 pedestals. The last 2 pedestals needs the 2 Spheres. 
Take note that use these 2 after completing the first 4 pedestals. After 
that, save your game and examine the new platform in the center. A battle 
will commence.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SPECTRAL KEEPER
#############################################################################
HP:      52,000
AP:      12,000
Gil:     7,000
Items:   Lv. 4 Key Sphere
Equip:   Elemental Shield
Attacks: Berserk Claw, Glyph Mine
Steal:   ?

Here, try to move your characters so that there will be 1 space in between 
each of them. This makes the spectral keeper confused since there are 3 
directions it needs to face. The Aeons will be very useful if they are on 
overdrive. But if not, the Glyph Mine will remove them from the playing 
field. That goes the same for your characters. If it uses the glyph mine, 
move to a space where there is no mine. This will prevent you from losing.  
#############################################################################

After that, you’ll see more scenes and you’ll know the absolute truth about 
the final aeon. Now, save your game and continue on until you meet up with 
Lady Yunalesca. She’ll ask you to choose 1 among your guardians to be your 
fayth. Everyone will be stunned (except for Auron of course). You’ll see more 
scenes with Braska, Jecht, and Auron. After that, when you regain control, 
head back to Yunalesca and you’ll defy her. You’ll then have to beat her in 
order to stop her.

#############################################################################
BOSS: Yunalesca
#############################################################################
HP:      24,000 / 2nd: 48,000 / 3rd: 60,000
AP:      19,000
Gil:     9,000
Items:   Lv. 3 Key Sphere
Equip:   Blessed Ring
Attacks: Blind, Sleep, Absorb, Hell Biter, Cura, Mega-Death
Steal:   Stamina Tablet

A good strategy against Yunalesca is to use your normal attacks and magical 
attacks in her first and second form. You may use 1 or 2 aeons if you’d like 
but spare more aeons for the final encounter. Now, the Hell Biter will turn 
everyone into Zombies. That’s bad news when you talk about Cura. Just let it 
be and continue pummeling her until you fight her third and final form. Here, 
you will want to be attacked by the Hell Biter. And why is that? It’s because 
she now has the Mega-Death ability that casts 100% death on everyone! If 
you’re in Zombie status, it will have no effect at all. Now is the time to 
use your aeons. 

Strategy from: Raynier Martinez <rmartinez@link.com>
----------------------------------------------------
In order to help you beat Yunalesca much easier, try to learn Yuna’s Holy 
offensive ability. It will deal a very sufficient amount of damage to 
Yunalesca.
#############################################################################

After that almost impossible feat, return back down and you’ll see Auron talk 
to Tidus. He will reveal his true nature and will show you his promise that 
he made to Jecht. Save your game and leave the dome. Outside, you’ll see Sin. 
You’ll then head back to the Airship.

=======
AIRSHIP
=======

Here, talk to Cid. After some scenes, save your game. You now have a Level 3 
Save Sphere. You can now use Save Spheres to transport yourself to the 
Airship. Now, you can play Blitz again. After that, go to the top floor 
(before the deck) and talk to Yuna who is with Kimahri. She’ll tell you that 
the best way might be to Bevelle and ask Maester Mika. Return to the bridge 
and you’ll hear the plan of Rikku. Sin might be able to be tamed for a while 
using the Hymn of the fayth. Now, talk to Cid. You’ll see a map here. You can 
go to all of the places you’ve been through (except for some areas). Now, 
head for the Highroad.

=======
BEVELLE
=======

Here, you’ll see the new captain of the guards, Shelinda! After she leaves, 
Maester Mika will appear and you will have a long talk with him about 
Yunalesca and such. After he goes, the fayth will talk to Tidus and Yuna. 
When asked, choose the top option then chose the hymn. The fayth will remind 
Tidus about their dream coming to an end. After that, you’ll talk to Shelinda 
regarding the hymn. She’ll tell all of Spira to sing the hymn when the flying 
ship starts to sing. Back at the airship, talk to Cid and go to Sin! You’ll 
hear the hymn and Sin will appear. Get ready and go to the deck.

============
AIRSHIP DECK
============

On top, you’ll see a scene where Tidus shows Yuna her sphere. After that, the 
battle with Sin begins.

#############################################################################
BOSS: LEFT FIN (SIN)
#############################################################################
HP:      65,000
AP:      16,000
Gil:     10,000
Items:   HP Sphere
Equip:   Sidewinder
Attacks: Gravija, Negation, Physical attack (side swipe)
Steal:   Mega-Potion

This is rather easy. Just move in and do all your stuff, especially physical 
attacks of Auron and Tidus. You may use your aeons here but I suggest that 
you save it for later. First, if you use Haste or any other stat altering 
effects, Sin will use Negation against you. It’ll remove those status. Beware 
also of Sin’s Gravija attack, which cuts off around 80-90% of your current 
HP.
#############################################################################

After that battle, Cid will sever the arm of Sin. Now, you’ll have to do it 
again with the other arm.

#############################################################################
BOSS: RIGHT FIN (SIN)
#############################################################################
HP:      65,000
AP:      17,000

Equip:   Rock Buster
Attacks: Same
Steal:   Mega-Potion

As for the Right Fin, just do the same strategy you did on the other fin of 
Sin.
#############################################################################

After the final battle with the fins, you’ll have to target sin’s weakpoint 
itself. A battle begins anew.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SINSPAWN GUNAIS & SIN
#############################################################################
HP:      20,000 / 36,000
AP:      29,700
Gil:     20,000
Items:   Return Sphere x2, MP Sphere x2
Equip:   Blessed Bracer, Light Bangle
Attacks: Venom, Level 1 Magic, Gravija
Steal:   Star Curtain

In this battle, concentrate on attacking the Sinspawn so that you’ll have a 
clear shot at Sin. You may now use your Aeons to help you beat these 2. As 
for their attacks, you’re most likely used to getting poisoned and having 
your HPs at a very critical stage. 
#############################################################################

After those intense battles, Sin will finally go down. At the airship, save 
your game. Then, go to the deck and talk to Yuna. You’ll see some scenes 
here. After that, Rikku will tell them that something is happening to Sin. 
Sin transforms and is now waiting for Tidus. Go back and save then go to the 
deck for the confrontation with Sin.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SIN
#############################################################################
HP:      140,000
AP:      20,000
Gil:     10,000
Items:   Lv. 3 Key Sphere
Equip:   Echo Bangle
Attacks: Physical Charges
Steal:   ?

This is an ultra-hard fight, if you don’t know what to do. I used aeons and 
it didn’t work since the Overdrives take too much time and Sin will be able 
to open its mouth and unleash its 100% win attack. Follow this strategy that 
I used. Before the battle, put Tidus, Auron, and Yuna. Then, have Tidus cast 
Hastega on everyone. Sin will still be approaching at this point. Now, let 
Yuna cast Protect on everyone and after that, exchange Yuna for Wakka. Let 
Tidus cast haste on him. By this time, Sin should be close enough to be 
attacked physically. Let Auron use Armor Break and Mental Break (a 
preparation for your final attack against Sin) and let Tidus and Wakka hack 
and attack Sin. When Sin’s HP is around 18,000 left, let Yuna come in and let 
her cast Bahamut in Overdrive (do not call him when he is not in overdrive or 
else this final attack won’t work and Sin will banish everyone). This will 
defeat Sin.

Strategy from: Baakley@aol.com
------------------------------
For the big Sin, if your Tidus is a little stronger than average, he will 
have Quick Hit. If you've saved your Friend Spheres, get Auron and, if 
possible, Wakka this skill. With Hastega, this will SURELY win the fight, 
ESPECIALLY with Armor Break. Also note that you CAN get Anima by this point, 
and Oblivion does incredible damage (40,000, I think?) as well as her 
attacks.

Strategy from: Matt DeCicca (wizard15_2000@hotmail.com)
-------------------------------------------------------
I have a very effective and "foolproof" way to beat Sin. First of all, you 
must have Anima and her strength increased to at least 94. Then you must have 
both Yuna and Anima in overdrive so this way, you can unleash 2 overdrives 
from Anima(this is achieved with Yuna's Grand Summon overdrive, which is what 
you do when you come to battle Sin for the first time on the airship.) Each 
overdrive will damage Sin for about 58,000 some damage points, if not really 
close to that figure. Both overdrives will sort of "weaken" Sin for Anima to 
do a regular attack and beat Sin. Only thing is though, for me he never got 
to his 100% win attack in time, so therefore it was really easy for me. Well, 
he did, but he never used it after the two overdrives. For any of you, you 
may not get so lucky the first time, so just keep on trying until you get to 
attack him with the overdrives and the regular attack.
#############################################################################

After that, the party goes inside Sin. You’ll have to find and defeat the 
source of this whole mess. Inside, save your game. Just continue on towards 
the next Save Sphere that is just beside the stairs leading up. On the way, 
watch out for the tough enemies. The road is also hard to see due to the 
heavy fogging. Once you reach the save sphere, prepare your party. On top, 
guess who’s waiting for you.

#############################################################################
BOSS: SEYMOUR OMNIS
#############################################################################
HP:      80,000
AP:      36,000
Gil:     13,000
Items:   Lv. 3 Key Sphere x3
Equip:   Malleable Staff
Attacks: Dispel, Ultima, Level 3 Magic attacks
Steal:   ?

Seymour is not that hard. You just have to know what element he is using. 
You’ll see 4 reels around Seymour and each of them has 4 spheres that 
correspond to an element. Example, if all 4 reels point the red sphere (which 
is fire) on Seymour, he will attack using Firaga 3 or more times in a single 
turn. Apart from that, those magical attacks are very powerful that it is 
possible to get all your party members defeated. Now, to get around this one. 
Let Yuna cast the Nul Magic attacks depending on the element. Let Tidus cast 
haste too. If you already have Ultima and Holy you should be able to beat him 
easily. As for the aeons use all of them (in Overdrive) except for the one 
with the same element as his because it will just heal him. This will be a 
test for your knowledge and mastery of the elements.

Strategy by: Jjukil@aol.com
---------------------------
Since Seymour only uses one element at a time if you leave the wheels alone, 
you can absorb most of his attacks very easily with an Aeon.  They can't use 
their Overdrives, but their physical attacks do decent damage if you Break 
Omnis's Armor.  When he uses Ultima, you can just Shield it, then dismiss the 
Aeon and put in the next one.  (If you don't mind killing your Aeons, you can 
use the first one's Overdrive after Omnis changes elements to add an extra 
punch instead.)  The order he uses elements in is Fire--Ice--Water--
Lightning, so you'll want to send out Ifrit and Shiva first and Ixion last, 
then repeat the process (if you need to).  You'll have to deal with Water 
without any Aeons, unfortunately, since Squaresoft didn't see fit to give you 
Leviathan in this one.  =P  One easy way to do this is using Mighty Guard, 
then putting Reflect on all of your party members while Omnis takes all the 
Nuls away.  His bounced spells will heal him a little, but you should be able 
to do enough damage to cancel that out.  When he uses Dispel, send out Ixion 
to Shield the following Ultima and you're set.  This makes for a very long 
battle, but a very easy one.

Strategy by: Adam Saunders (bb_ender@yahoo.ca)
----------------------------------------------
Seymour Omnis is pretty easy. Before the battle begins, make sure that either 
Yuna has a full overdrive, or that Anima has a full overdrive. Use Tidus, 
Auron, and Yuna. Have Yuna cast Nul magic at the beginnning of the battle 
that corresponds to the wheels' element shown. Have Auron Armor Break 
Seymour, and use Tidus's Quick Hit (if Auron has Quick Hit as well, then 
Quick Hit with Auron as much as possible until another Quick hit won't make 
him have another turn before Seymour's; then, Armour Break him). The Nul 
Magic cast should protect your party from his Level 3 spells. By this time, 
Seymour should have lost about 15 000-25 000 HP. Time to summon Anima in full 
Overdrive form. Use Anima's Oblivion overdrive. And there you have it; 
Seymour Omnis dead in under 3 minutes.
#############################################################################

After that battle, Yuna finally sends the repentant Seymour. He realizes that 
he isn’t capable. After that, go back and save, and then move on. From here 
on, the path will be straightforward again. Move on until you reach the next 
and final save point in the game! Prepare your party now as you’ll will face 
the toughest opponent yet. When you’re ready, head north and you’ll see 
something drop from the sky. Examine the large glyph and you’ll be taken to a 
weird place. Here, you’ll need to get the spheres that appear. There are 10 
of them. Apart from that, there are spikes that come out of the ground. If 
they hit you, you’ll have to do battle with the strong fiends again. When you 
receive all 10 (which are mostly equipments), you’ll reach the final area. 
Move on and you’ll see Jecht waiting for you. You’ll see a very long scene 
between him and Tidus. After that, the most crucial battle will begin.

#############################################################################
BOSS: BRASKA’S FINAL AEON
#############################################################################
HP:      1st: 60,000 / 2nd: 120,000 / Yu Pagoda: variable
AP:      no more
Gil:     no more
Items:   no more
Equip:   no more
Attacks: Palm Attack, Jecht Beam, Triumphant Grasp, Jecht Bomber and
         Ultimate Jecht Shot
         Pagodas: Power Wave, Curse, Osmose
Steal:   n/a

This is definitely the final battle and the toughest battle in the game. The 
Yu Pagodas are tough opponents themselves and should not be overlooked. Let 
me explain how the Pagodas work. First, they have 9999 HP. When they stop and 
then revived, their HP will depend on how much damage they acquired before 
they stopped previously. Therefore, you’ll need to finish them off with an 
attack of not more or not less that 9,999. This feat can be accomplished by 
the following: Overdrive of Aeons, Ultima, Flare, and Holy. If you attack it 
with Bahamut, it will get damaged by around 20,000. When the pagodas act 
again, they will have 20,000 HPs. When they use Power Wave, they replenish 
the final aeon’s HP by 1500 and increases its Overdrive bar.

Let’s move on to the aeon. Its attacks are tremendously powerful, especially 
the palm attack. So, let Tidus cast Hastega and have everyone on Protect and 
Shell. Do not use your Aeons yet. Leave it for the Second Form of the Final 
Aeon. 

As for the second form, the Final aeon will be faster and stronger now that 
it has a huge sword in hand. You may want to use the talk command now when 
its overdrive is full. You wouldn’t want to see how much damage the Ultimate 
Jecht Shot will do. Use your aeons also. Use Bahamut later since it will give 
more HPs to the pagodas and thus, they will be hard to beat. Just continue on 
your barrage of Ultima, Holy, and Flare. Good Luck!

For Braska's Final Aeon, if you have any Stamina Tonics, let Rikku Use them. 
They double your party's max HP, and for those with lower levels, this may 
prove invaluable.
#############################################################################

After that intense battle, you can relax since you’ve practically finished 
the game already. After that, you’ll see more scenes about Jecht and the 
Fayth. The final battle with Yu Yevon will commence.

#############################################################################
BOSS: FINAL AEONS, YU YEVON
#############################################################################
HP:      YU YEVON: 99,999 / AEONS: Varies
AP:      no more
Gil:     no more
Items:   no more
Equip:   no more
Attacks: Varies, Yu Yevon: Osmose, Curaga, Gravija
Steal:   n/a

This is very easy but long. You won’t lose this one since everyone has an 
Auto-Life ability with them. First, you’ll be fighting all your Aeons, 1 by 
1. To beat them easily, you may use Yuna’s Holy or Ultima, or Lulu’s Flare. 
The HP of the aeons is the same as how much HPs they’ve had when they’re 
still with Yuna. After beating all the aeons, you’ll finally have the battle 
against Yu Yevon itself. The best party here is Tidus, Yuna and Lulu. First, 
let Tidus cast Hastega. Then, cast reflect on Tidus and Yevon. If you attack 
Yevon, it will cast Curaga on itself. Thus, if you it Reflects from him, it 
will heal your party. Next, you can’t hit him with magic on the other hand. 
You’ll need to cast them on Tidus (who is in Reflect Status). It will hit 
either Yevon or the Yu Pagodas. Again, do not hesitate to use Megalixirs 
since this is the final battle in the game.

Strategy from: TooSkillful4U@aol.com
------------------------------------
Ever wonder of any other way to get past around Yevon’s Curaga? Well, you can 
just cast Zombie on Yu Yevon and let him kill himself since his Curaga will 
damage him, a lot.

Strategy Variation from: senator flagg (senatorflagg@hotmail.com)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Use Auron's Zombie attack on Yu Yevon, then have Yuna cast Life on him. 
Simple as that.
#############################################################################

After that final battle with the source of this whole mess, you’ll be treated 
to the endings scenes for the game. The FMVs are quite emotional and very 
touching. Watch out also for a short FMV after the credits. That is all. 
Congratulations on finishing the best RPG for the PS2 to date, Final Fantasy 
X. Thank you very much for reading. Hope you enjoyed the game as well as the 
guide. C’ya!

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Eien No Nagi-setsu(The Eternal Calm): Final Fantasy X Another Story
-------------------------------------------------------------------

=====================
Scene 1: Besaid Beach
=====================

Yuna(thinking): 37, 38, 39, 40, 41...
(Sound of surfacing, gasps of breath)

Yuna(thinking): Two minutes and forty one seconds - a new high.
(Wakka runs onto Besaid Beach and calls Yuna)

Wakka: Yuna! C'mon!

Yuna: Be right there!
(Screen closes up on Wakka who crosses his arms and sighs contentedly)

Wakka: Pretty good at holding your breath now, ya?

Yuna(laughs): Not as good as you!

Wakka: Yeah, well, I haven't even practiced recently.

Yuna(jokingly): You sure look it.
(Wakka, embarassed, brings his hand to his forehead) 

Wakka: Eh...ah

Yuna: Its not like you're the one having a baby!
(Wakka turns, sighs then runs off leaving Yuna alone on the beach)
(Yuna turns toward the beach and thinks to herself)

Yuna(thinking): Its been two years since then. I can hold my breath 
underwater for a full two minutes now. Its more than just physical
strength, there are a few tricks to it that you need to figure out--
I didn't understand when it was explained in words, but after a lot
of practice I finally got it.

Yuna(Still thinking): I never thought there was any kind of trick to it. I 
couldn't afford to think about anything back then.

Yuna(thinking): The Eternal Calm. Its my two minutes and forty one seconds 
and Wakka's pudgy stomach. Its not much-- just a quiet kind of happiness.

======================
Scene 2: Besaid Temple
======================

(Yuna stands at the door and looks around before entering. She walks over to 
Wakka, who was talking to a man. The pair walks toward her, and the man 
begins to speak.)

Tasgio: I saw you from a distance at the stadium two years ago. But I never 
thought I'd see you in person... You're as beautiful as ever.

Yuna: Thank you.

Tasgio: I have a favor to ask about my grandson. He joined up with the Young 
Persons' Alliance.

Tasgio: Now, not to say that the alliance is bad in and of itself, but me and 
the missus are both with New Yevon--my son and daughter in law too. My 
grandson used to come to our meetings too. But one day, he just...

Tasgio: There are a lot of young folks in the Alliance, so I'm sure its 
exciting for him. But still...

Yuna(thinking): A number of groups have formed across Spira since then. How 
should we build this new world? What should Spira be like in the future? 
Everyone is looking for their own path.

Tasgio: I feel that... my grandson and his companions are moving too quickly.

Yuna(thinking): With so many ways of thinking, at times conflict is 
inevitable. Some people are uncomfortable with the new ways of things. 
Honestly, I too sometimes... But this is good enough for now. That's what I 
keep telling myself.

Yuna: I understand how you feel but try talking it over with your grandson. 
His actions might appear reckless to you, but his feelings for Spira are the 
same as your own.

=============
Besaid Island
=============

(Yuna is walking along an island path just as Wakka runs in from offscreen.)

Wakka: He-ey!

Yuna: Who is it? A visitor?

Wakka: You know how it is--the village geezers are shooting their mouths 
about that again...

Yuna: Who is it this time?

Wakka: The son of the head of New Yevon.

Yuna: No way. I'd probably just end up being used by him.

Wakka: Man... sorry, Yuna.

Yuna: I'll go turn them down.

Wakka: No problem I got it. I mean you don't wanna hafta see their frowning 
faces down, do ya?

Yuna: ...right.
(A messenger runs onscreen)

???: Lady Yuna!

Yeivel: Lady Yuna! I'm Yeivel of the Young Persons' Alliance! I have come 
today to deliver a message from our leader Nurge!

Wakka: She's not joining the alliance.

Yeivel: But--

Yuna: Is that why you came?

Yeivel: ...yes it is.

Yuna: I'm not going to join with any group.

Yeivel: Are you perhaps going to form your own group?

Yuna: Please leave.
(Rikku runs onscreen, screaming and out of breath.)

Rikku: Yuna! Wakka!

=====================
Scene 4: Salvage Ship
=====================

Yuna(thinking): Rikku sometimes comes by Besaid Island. She travels around 
Spira teaching people how to use machines, excavating old machines from 
underground or underwater... She's awfully busy but seems to be enjoying 
herself. 
(Rikku pokes Wakka's stomach, making little poking noises.)

Wakka: Stop that!

Rikku: Quite a tummy you've got now. So how's Lulu?

Wakka: She's in the village. Go say "hi" later, ya?

Rikku: Of course! And Yunie, same as always huh?

Yuna(cheerfully): That's right! same as always.
(A seagull flies overhead.)

Wakka: So Kimahri's still at Mt. Gagazet?

Rikku: You bet! He's teaching the Ronso children tons of stuffs. he's really 
quite the teacher!

Rikku: Anyway, I got something from Kimahri for you, he found it up the 
mountain.

Yuna: A sphere?

Wakka: Weird shape, huh?
(Rikku activates the sphere and holds it out for Yuna.)

Rikku: Look closely, Yunie.

===============
Scene 5: A Cage
===============

(*This scene is difficult to see, the screen is distorted and so is the 
sound. The cage seems to be underwater though I'm not very sure. But its 
clear that Tidus is trapped inside. This scene is quite interesting.*)

Tidus: What the hell do I get arrested for?! Let me go already!

Tidus: You hear me don't you? What would you have thought if she was your 
girl?

Tidus: Who cares if I used the enemy's machina?! It was the only way to save 
the Summoner!?!

Tidus(voice cracks): What would you have done instead?!?(audible sobs can now 
be heard)

Tidus(going crazy): .....Let me out of here!!? Let me see her!!?

=====================
Scene 6: Salvage Ship
=====================

Yuna(thinking): A voice..... a voice that have been close by for what seemed 
like forever...

Wakka: What's this about? What's he doing there? Is that really him? What's 
this all about?

Rikku: I don't really know... but you wanna find out don't you?

Wakka: Well yeah!

Yuna: Yes.

Rikku: Then let's go!

Yuna: Where to?

Rikku: No idea! Let's go talk to Kimahri first and think about it then, ok?

Wakka: But we don't know anything! Shouldn't we look into it a little first?

Rikku: And just who's gonna find it out for us?
(Yeivel appears suddenly on the bridge.)

Yeivel: Leave it to us!

Yeivel: Our leader Nurge should agree as well! I'll convince him myself!

Wakka: Get outta here!

Yeivel: Y-Yessir! I'll return as soon as something has been learned!
(Yeivel runs off.)

Rikku: I think Yunie ought to go herself.

Wakka: That's impossible.

Rikku: Why's that?

Wakka: The next three months are completely booked. Everyone wants to meet 
Yuna.

Rikku: And what about what Yunie wants?

Wakka: Well, y'know someday... when the world has settled down and all...

Rikku(furious): Whaddya mean someday?! What someday?! What's the matter with 
you Wakka? Yunie always worked so hard, she should only worry about herself 
now--so why?! Everytime I come here I always think about how everyone's busy 
finding their own happiness... except Yuna.

Wakka: Well... that's...
(Rikku runs over and shouts at Wakka's face.)

Rikku: Has your head gone as soft as your belly?!

Rikku: Yunie!

Yuna(thinking): I... I want to go, but if I leave I may disappoint people...

Yuna: I...
(*The following line below is a direct quotation from FFX; but since I can't 
find the exact wording of the english version, I retranslated it.*)

Tidus(voiceover): Well, if acting grown up means I won't be able to say what 
I want, then screw it! Nothing will change that way!

Yuna: I'll go.

Wakka: Yuna!!
(Rikku sighs with relief.)

Yuna: After all... this is my story.

Rikku: Ha! I know you'd say that! so Iwent ahead and bought some stuff for 
you.

Wakka: Oh, no...

Rikku: First off, we have to get you into some new clothes. You're famous 
after all, so you'd  better go undercover!

Wakka: J--just wait a second, ya? Let me go get Lu.

Yuna(thinking): The Eternal Calm, its my two minutes and forty one seconds 
and Wakka's pudgy stomach. It's a small and quiet kind of happiness... but I 
guess I can ask for a little more can't I?

Yuna: Rikku, let's get going!

***THE END***

PS: I went on describing the characters' emotions and actions so that you'll 
be able to imagine the scenes as they happen. And honestly, I was very 
surprised when I actually heard Tidus crying. I never expected that in the 
first place ^.^

The entire FFX International Info contributions were submitted to me by none 
other than Kathleen herself. ^_^ Thanks again Kathleen.


=============================================================================
SIDE QUESTS / SECRETS
=============================================================================

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
I. TEMPLE REVISITING
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

If you re-visit the temples that you’ve gone through (w/ cloisters of 
trials), you’ll be able to speak to the fayth and receive treasures (most 
likely, some hard to find spheres). You can do this one just before you enter 
Sin near the end of the game. Here are the info for each temple. 

=============
BESAID TEMPLE
=============
At the chamber of the Fayth, you’ll be able to receive the following: Evasion 
Sphere, Hi-Potion, White Magic Sphere, Elixir, Potion x2

============
DJOSE TEMPLE
============
Receive a Luck Sphere from the Fayth. Then, get the chests for Magic Def 
Sphere and Agility Sphere.

=============
KILIKA TEMPLE
=============
Receive a Luck Sphere from the Fayth. The chests contain Accuracy Sphere, 
Defense Sphere, and Agility Sphere.

================
MACALANIA TEMPLE
================
The Fayth will give you a Magic Sphere. The chests that are scattered around 
contains an Accuracy Sphere and a Magic Defense Sphere.

===========================
CHAMBER OF THE STOLEN FAYTH
===========================
If you talk to the fayth of Yojimbo, you’ll be able to get a Strength Sphere.

===============
ZANARKAND RUINS
===============
Here, you’ll see a brand new puzzle. This time, the puzzle uses both the 
first and the second room tiles. All you have to do here is to light up all 
Square-shaped tiles. This will net you a Destruction sphere in the first 
room. Use it on the recess at the second room to receive the treasure, 
Magistral Rod.

=============
REMIEM TEMPLE
=============
After acquiring the aeon here, return back and talk to the Fayth again. They 
will give you a Defense Sphere.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
II. THE BAAJ TEMPLE
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

In order to find the Baaj temple, find it using search at X (6-10) and Y (58-
62) coordinates at the map. You must first, have the airship and you should 
be on your way to Sin.

===========
BAAJ TEMPLE
===========

Here, go north from the save point and Tidus will automatically jump at the 
end. In the water, dive and head for the entrance. You’ll be greeted by 
Tidus’ old friend.

#############################################################################
BOSS: GEOSGAENO
#############################################################################
HP:      32,767
AP:      4,200
Gil:     1,000
Items:   Power Sphere
Equip:   Switch Hitter
Attacks: Stone Punch, Gulp
Steal:   Water Gem

Elements: 
        Fire   Lightning   Water  Ice
-------------------------------------
x 1.5 |  O   |     O     |   O   | O |
  +   |      |           |       |   |
  /   |      |           |       |   |
 1/2  |      |           |       |   |
-------------------------------------

Geosgaeno is tough. Beware of the Stone Punch since if one of your party 
members is stoned, he/she will be out of the battle for good. So, try to 
equip armaments with Stone Ward, better yet Stoneproof to stop Petrification. 
Then, just attack normally. Haste everyone to your advantage. Don’t forget to 
use the Al Bhed Potion, just in case. 
#############################################################################

After the battle, go inside the temple. Swim on until you reach the chamber 
of the Fayth. You’ll see a symbol at the end and 6 statues. The 6 statues 
represent the temples you’ve gone through. Go near them and they will be 
activated. Take note that in order to activate them, you’ll need to complete 
the extra item, or the Destruction sphere puzzle for each Cloister of Trials. 
Once you get 6 you can now enter the Chamber. Here, you’ll see nothing short 
of Seymour’s mother. She’ll tell you more about her son. After that, you’ll 
receive a very very powerful aeon, Anima. Anima can deal more then 30,000 
using normal attacks. 99,999 damage will be dealt if you use her overdrive. 
Remember that.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
III. REVISITING LUCA / MOVIE AND MUSIC THEATER
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once you have the airship and you are about to enter sin, you may want to go 
back to Luca for some neat features of the game such as the Movie and Music 
Theater.

====
LUCA
====
Treasures: Jupiter Crest

First, head for the Auroch’s locker room and check one locker for the Jupiter 
Crest. Then, go out and head south from the center of Luca and continue to 
the Movie and Music Theater, the Sphere Theater. You’ll also find O’aka 
outside. He’s been freed from imprisonment.

Inside the Sphere Theater, you can buy Movie and Music Spheres. The Movie 
sphere will contain all the movies you have seen throughout the game. As for 
the Music Sphere, it is much like the soundtrack for the game. But then, you 
have to buy the spheres first. Movie Spheres cost 5,000 Gil and Music Spheres 
cost 2,000 Gil.

Here are the lists for the Movie and Music Sphere.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To get the final 3 Music Spheres, buy all 68 Standard Music Spheres then talk 
to the one who sells it. He will offer you the 3 final Music spheres for 
40,000 Gil

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
IV. THE REMIEM TEMPLE
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

To reach the Remiem Temple, you have to go to the Calm Lands and ride a 
Chocobo. Now, head to the south easternmost area and you’ll see a small 
Yellow Feather (shaped like a banana). While riding the Chocobo, examine the 
Feather and the Chocobo will jump one ledge down. From here, walk east to the 
next area and you’ll now be inside the Remiem Temple Aera.

=============
REMIEM TEMPLE
=============
Treasures: Cloudy Mirror

First of all, get the Primer Here and then talk to the Chocobo on the left. 
It will say something about a challenge, a race against a Chocobo in the 
temple. If you’ll notice below the temple, there is somewhat a race track 
that goes around. You’ll then have to beat the other Chocobo towards the 
center area of the track. After doing so, you’ll receive the Cloudy Mirror. 
Now, go inside the Temple itself. But take note that you’ll need all the 
previous aeons you’ve had. That includes Yojimbo and Anima. 

Inside, you’ll find Belgemine. She will talk to yuna and will offer help for 
her. A summoner challenge will occur and Yuna’ll have to fight her aeons 1 on 
1. Here are the HP info and prizes you’ll receive from her. The HPs are rough 
estimate of the actual HP of the aeons.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name            HP:           Prize/s:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Valefor         10,000        Aeon’s Soul, Lightning Gem x4, Speed Sphere x4
Ifrit           20,000        X-Potion x30, Mana Sphere x5
Ixion           40,000        Chocobo Feather x10, Power Sphere x8
Shiva           30,000        Mega-Potion x60, Star Curtain x6
Bahamut         40,000        Flower Scepter, Mana Sphere x8
Yojimbo         20,000        Shadow Gem x8, Power Sphere x10
Anima           50,000        Stamina Spring x60, Mana Sphere x10   
Magus Sisters   40,000 each   Shining Gem x40
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To beat these Aeons, just use either Bahamut, Anima, or the Magus Sisters (if 
you already have them). Don’t worry though as Belgemine will heal your aeons 
before you fight. By this time, your aeons should be more powerful than hers. 

***Spoiler***
After beating all 8 of the Aeons, she you will be given the option to Send 
her since she is already of the dead. After that, you’ll receive one of the 
key elements in the Celestial Weapons quest, the Moon Sigil.
***Spoiler***

Apart from beating Belgemine, there is still one more important task at hand, 
the Magus Sisters. To the north of the platform where Belgemine is, you’ll 
see a sealed door. It can be unlocked by 2 items, the Flower Scepter and the 
Blossom Crown. You probably have the Flower Scepter now from Belgemine. As 
for the Blossom Crown, you’ll need to capture all the fiends at Mt. Gagazet 
then talk to the main in the Arena. He will then give the Crown to you. When 
you open the sealed door, inside, you’ll find the fayth of the 3 sisters, the 
Magus Sisters. They are very very powerful.

Remember racing with the other chocobo here? Well, you can get more rare 
items if you managed to get all 6 treasure chest (during the race) and beat 
the other Chocobo. What makes this difficult is that you have to avoid the 
Poles. Then, the path towards the chests are intertwined and confusing. 
Finally, when you get a chest, you’ll get teleported or better yet, you’ll be 
transported to a new location in the track. The six locations of the chests 
are North, West, Southwest, Northwest x2, and West. 

Prizes: 
-------
1 Chest:  Potion
2 Chests: Elixir
3 Chests: Megalixir
4 Chests: Wings to Discovery x30
5 Chests: ?
6 Chests: ?

Now, you can only win them once. That means you cannot get a Megalixir 
anymore of you already got it. Instead, you’ll only receive a potion. This 
goes the same as the poles. If you managed to evade all poles, you’ll get the 
prize. But even if you got 4 chests and hit a pole, you’ll only get a potion.

V. CELESTIAL WEAPONS SIDE QUEST
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This is the most tedious Side Quest in the game. But first, you’ll need the 
Cloudy Mirror. Now, head to Macalania Forest and talk to the kid and his 
mother who lost their father/husband. Now, go right 1 screen then left 1 
screen. Talk to the father and he tell him where his kid and his wife are. 
He’ll run to them. Go back and talk to the Man and the Woman. Now, their 
child is lost. Go left to the save point and find a sparkling path just to 
the northeast of the save sphere. When you reach an intersection, go up and 
you’ll see the kid. Go to him and the cloudy mirror will then become the 
Celestial Mirror. This will now allow you to acquire the Celestial Weapons of 
the characters. We’ll now tackle how to get and maximize each of the weapons. 
First, remember that once you get a Celestial Weapon, it has the No AP 
ability which prevents you from gaining any AP at all after battles. You’ll 
be needing its corresponding crest and sigil to unlock the maximum power of 
the weapon. Let’s get a move on.

=====
TIDUS
=====
Weapon Name: Caladbolg
Items: Sun Crest, Sun Sigil

In order for you to get the Caladbolg, you need to get the items first. For 
the Sun Crest, you may get it at a chest at the northern part of the location 
where you fought Yunalesca in Zanarkand Ruins. 

The Sun Sigil, however, isn’t as easy as the Crest. To get it, you’ll need to 
have a time of 0.0 or lower (but it will still say 0.0) at the Catcher 
Chocobo Training at Calm Lands. It seems easy but in fact, it concerns 
skills, intuition, and luck. First, Luck will come into play. At the start of 
the race, make sure you get at least 4 of the 5 balloons. Anything less will 
net you a slim chance at 0.0 second time. It also depends on the position of 
the balloons since sometimes, they are nearer the trainer. Now, when you make 
the first right turn, things will go worse since the balloons are randomly 
scattered around the track. The worst thing here are the birds. They will 
swoop down in front of you, adding 3 seconds to the time for every hit. There 
is a way to evade them easily but you also need to observe the flight pattern 
of the birds. When a bird appears at the horizon, try to go right or left as 
far as you can then go instantly to the other direction. The bird will get 
confused. You may also go right and left alternately to fool the bird 
further. But of course, do not forget to get the balloons. Sometimes, the 
Chocobo goes wobbly. The ideal way to finish the race is to get at least 13 
Balloons and get hit by at most 1 bird only. You’ll finish the race in less 
than 35 seconds that way. It will add 3, making it 38. Then, subtracted from 
the 13 balloons which makes a -1. You got the Sigil. 

After acquiring that tough 0.0 second time, go to the northwest area of the 
Calm Lands. You’ll see a partly hidden slope that leads to a lower ledge. 
You’ll need to disembark the Chocobo. If you went there earlier, a man was 
blocking the way. But now that you have the Sigil and the Crest, you may now 
examine the Glyph on the wall. It will open and Tidus will receive his 
Celestial Weapon, the Caladbolg. Head over to the Macalania Woods to complete 
the ritual to maximize the ability of the Celestial Weapon.

====
YUNA
====
Weapon Name: Nirvana
Items: Moon Crest, Moon Sigil

First, to get hold of the Celestial Weapon, you’ll need to capture all 10 
fiends in the Calm Lands. The Trainer will then show a chest which cannot be 
opened by traditional means. If you have the Celestial Mirror, the chest will 
open and you’ll receive the Nirvana.

For the Moon Crest, you can get it at the Besaid Beach. Just swim into the 
water and you’ll find it in the water.

For the Moon Sigil, all you have to do is to go to the Remiem Temple and beat 
all of Belgemine’s Aeons. Check out the Remiem Temple Side Quest for more 
info.

====
LULU
====
Weapon Name: Onion Knight
Items: Venus Crest, Venus Sigil

To get hold of the Celestial Weapon of Lulu, go to the Baaj Temple area and 
jump into the water. Go south and find the Celestial Chest. The screen will 
shift to the location of the chest when you’re near. 

For the Venus Crest, re-visit Guadosalam and head straight for the Farplane. 
You’ll find the Venus Crest there.

The Venus Sigil will be pretty much harder. First, you’ll need to go to the 
Thunder Plains. Now, you can dodge lightning here right? You must now dodge 
200 Lightning Bolts in succession without interruption (except that you may 
pause the game to take a break). First, dedicate at least an hour for this 
one since you are very much capable of losing it middle-way. Next, put your 
full concentration in it. Do not talk but silently count the number of bolts 
you’ve dodged. When you’re ready, use this strategy that I noticed would be 
much easier since it’s a sure fire way of luring those bolts.

My Strategy: First, if you’re hit by lightning, remember the exact same spot 
where it hit. After you’ve stepped backward (after dodging), stop doing 
anything and the second Lightning will come in at most 3 seconds (watch out 
since it varies). After the second bolt, quickly run up to the spot where the 
first lightning hit. You’ll be hit in no more than 5 seconds and then another 
bolt will come in. Thus, you’ll be dodging 2 bolts at a time. And since you 
are not running wantonly around, you’ll gain more concentration. If you run, 
the bolt will have a hard time hitting you so pick a bolt spot and keep on 
going to that spot. Just stand there and wait for the next 2 bolts. I did 245 
Bolts in 17 minutes. But I won’t try again. ^_^ 

Now, after successfully dodging 200 Lightning Bolts, go back to the travel 
agency and examine the chest just outside the entrance. It will give you 
prizes depending on the number of bolts that you’ve dodged in a row.

----------------------------------
# of Bolts      Prize
----------------------------------
      5         Potion x2
     10         Mega Potion x2
     20         MP Sphere x2
     50         Strength Sphere x2
    100         HP Sphere x3
    150         Megalixir x4
    200         Venus Sigil
----------------------------------

After acquiring the Venus Sigil and the Venus Crest, head for the Big Orb at 
the Macalania Woods and complete the ritual for the maximum Celestial Weapon 
of Lulu.

=====
RIKKU
=====
Weapon Name: Godhand
Items: Mercury Crest, Mercury Sigil

To get the weapon, talk to Cid and input GODHAND as password. It will open a 
path to the Mushroom Rock Road. There, you’ll be on the lower ground level 
where you can find the chest containing the Godhand.

The Mercury Crest is easy. It can be found in the Sanubia Desert West. As for 
the Mercury Sigil, you have to undergo with the Cactuar Side Quest at the 
Sanubia Desert West.

First, you’ll need a weapon that has the No Encounter ability. Since you’ll 
be wandering around the Desert a lot, enemies will get in your way very 
badly. Now, once you have it, go to the West Sanubia Desert and go south of 
the Sandstorm. You’ll see a huge stone that has an image of a cactuar on it. 
Examine it and it will tell you about the 10 Cactuars that have been gone. It 
will give you clues as to where the Cactuars are but you have to get them in 
order. That means, when you find and caught a cactuar, you need to get back 
to the cactuar stone. You’ll receive a Sphere (with the name of the cactuar) 
if you have successfully captured it. If you weren’t able to catch it in 3 
tries, you’ll receive the Sphere Del Perdedor instead of the sphere of that 
cactuar. Now, in order to catch a Cactuar, go to the location (as specified 
by the clue) and when you see it, run for it and examine it to challenge it. 
Now, once you reach it, you’ll have to do something again. 

This time, a timer will appear and you will start at a distance. When the 
Cactuar isn’t looking, quickly run towards the cactuar. When it turns around, 
stop at all costs. One very minimal move will prevent you from catching it. A 
good strategy here would be to listen to the sound it makes. Time your 
running according to the sound and you’ll do fine. But take note that 1 of 
the cactuars will try to confuse you with the sounds. Now, when you are able 
to catch the Cactuar, you’ll have to fight it (but not all of them). After 
beating it, you’ll acquire the sphere of that cactuar. Take note also that 
there is a time limit so you have to alert always. Return back to the huge 
stone and another clue will appear. Here are the 10 Cactuars in order, with 
their clues and descriptions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #1: TOMAY

Clue:        Tomay’s gone to fetch water (not the exact clue but almost)

point 
             you’ll see in Bikanel after you teleport down from the airship).

Clue:        Little Chava likes big numbers.
Location:    Chava is in the Sanubia Desert West (the area where the 
sandstorm
             is). Examine one of the sign posts to the left and you’ll see
             Chava hiding inside. Big numbers denote the 20% off.

Description: - Recently learned to count to 50
             - Needy
             - Attention Deficit
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #4 & #5: ALEK AND ALOJA

Clue:        Alek and Aloja play tag in the ruins of men.
Location:    They are playing tag at the Sanubia Desert Central, left area
             where there are ruins. 
Time Limit:  13.0 sec.
Description: - Two brothers, rarely separated
             - They move as one, their closeness a paragon of brotherhood.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #6: VACHELLA

Clue:        Vachella seeks the shining blue.
Location:    The clue talks about none other than a save point. There are 4 
save
             points in the desert but examine the one inside the tent at the 
             Sanubia Desert East.
Time Limit:  14.0 sec.
Description: - Loves new things
             - Hard on others, easy on self
             - Stingy 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #7: ROBEYA

Clue:        O, Robeya’s stuck inside.
Location:    Robeya is inside a chest. You can find the chest at the Sanubia
             Desert Central. It is to the southwest of the Save Sphere, at 
the
             left corner. 
Time Limit:  14.0 sec.
Description: - A real needle brain
             - Likes cramped spaces
             - Check out his great collection
Note:        During the catching, you may get the chests for Shadow Gems.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #8: ISRRA

Clue:        A fiery description - The lord of the hole is gone, Isrra 
thinks.
Location:    In the Sanubia Desert West, you can find him going around in 
             circles in a hole of a Sandragora (whirlsand).
Time Limit:  15.0 sec.
Description: - The philisopher about town. Today, he digs holes, again
             - Cautious
Note:        This one’s pretty tough. Isrra will turn around very quickly so
             be attentive and observant. React quickly.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #9:  ELIO

Clue:        Much curious Elio has left on a journey.
Location:    It took me quite long enough to get this one. After returning
             Isrra’s sphere, head for the Oasis again and you’ll see a scene 
             where Elio teleports himself up to the airship. Board the 
airship
             then head up to the deck and you’ll see him there.
Time Limit:  11.0 sec.
Description: - To what lies beyond the sand, he travels far to distant lands
             - Hyper-active and a bad poet
Note:        During the time you’re catching him, the ship will tilt so plan 
             your movements carefully.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cactuar #10: FLAILE

Clue:        Flaile is always behind.
Location:    After putting back Elio, Flaile will appear behind the Huge 
Cactuar
             stone. Just catch him there.
Time Limit:  13.0 sec.
Description: - The guy you never invite but he always shows up anyway
             - Cheeky
Note:        This one’s pretty tricky. First, you should not follow the 
sound.
             He is only confusing you. Just watch his movement and try to get
             the sound he makes out of your mind so that you can concentrate
             on watching his movements.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After successfully completing the Cactuar quest, the sandstorm will 
disappear. Go there and get the Mercury Sigil and the Friend Sphere. If you 
have the weapon and the crest/sigil, you may now unlock the maximum power of 
the celestial weapon of Rikku.

=====
AURON
=====
Weapon Name: Masamune
Items: Mars Crest, Mars Sigil

To get the Masamune, first you have to acquire the Rusty Sword. Go to the 
entrance to the Chamber of the Stolen Fayth. You can reach it from the Calm 
Lands then go under the bridge. Now, from the entrance (do not enter) go 
south then east. You’ll see a sword stuck in the ground. Get it for the Rusty 
Sword. Now, to use it, head to Mi’ihen Highroad. Go north through the gate 
(where Seymour first helped you out) and continue to Mushroom Rock. Here, 
move on to the 2nd intersection and go north. You’ll see a floor panel. 
Examine and you’ll be taken up. Examine the statue here and you’ll be asked 
to put the Rusty Sword in it. After putting it in, touch the weird glyph by 
the wall to get the Masamune.

To get the Mars Crest, you need to go to the Mi’ihen highroad again and go to 
where you fought the Chocobo Eater. There is a road below right? Now, go on 
to the gate (where Seymour first helped you) and go east. You’ll reach the 
new road that leads to the Mars Crest at the end. 

As for the Mars Sigil, it can be simply explained and yet it is quite hard to 
accomplish. All you need is to complete the fiends of at least 10 Areas and 
the man at the Training Arena will give you the Sigil.

=====
WAKKA
=====
Weapon Name: World Champion
Items: Jupiter Crest, Jupiter Sigil

To get the Celestial Weapon of Wakka, head for the Café at Luca and talk to 
the Bartender. You should have won enough Blitz Ball games in order for him 
to give it to you. I got the item when the Team was at Level 6. 

To acquire the Jupiter Crest, head for the locker room of the Aurochs inside 
the Luca Stadium. You can reach it by going down the stairs in the main hall 
of the stadium (where you buy the tickets). 

To acquire the Sigil, you need to win all of Wakka’s Overdrives from the 
League and Tournament (Status Reels, Attack Reels, and Auroch’s Reels), then 
randomly, the Sigil will appear as a random prize in the league.

=======
KIMAHRI
=======
Weapon Name: Spirit Lance
Items: Saturn Crest, Saturn Sigil

To get the Weapon, head for the Thunder plains. Remember in the walkthrough 
that I told you to examine the shining cactuar stones using the Square 
button? If you do that on 3 stones, a Cactuar spirit will appear in the 
Thunder Plains south. Then, go just a little bit to the northeast of the save 
sphere (entrance to Thunder Plains from guadosalam) and you’ll see a fallen 
tower. Examine it using the Square Button and you’ll receive the Weapon.

To get the Saturn Crest, head to Mt. Gagazet. Go all the way to where you 
fought Seymour. Then, move on until you see a save point and some pillars. 
Examine the in-between of the pillars on the left side for the Crest.

As for the Saturn Sigil, it’s quite difficult to do since you have to catch 
all 7 butterflies in the Macalania Woods. You may check the Butterfly 
Catching section for the strategy I made for it. I hope it will help you. 
Took me a while to discover them. After getting all 3, head for the Big orb 
in Macalania and maximize Kimahri’s Weapon.

VI. SOFT RESET
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The Playstation FF Soft Reset Code works in FF10 and can be a big help in

--press these all at once, and the game WILL reset.

We’ll now do an overdrive list for each of the characters. I’ll also include

-----
TIDUS
-----
Overdrive Name: Swordplay
How to Use: Now, you’ll see a bar on your screen right? You’ll be given 2.00 
seconds to complete this. First, a tiny indicator will go to and fro and 
you’ll need to press X as soon as it hits the center of the bar. Try to get 
it as fast as possible since the damage Tidus will depend on 2 things. First, 
if you hit the center or not. Second, how long did it take you to hit it 
correctly.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

----
YUNA
----
Overdrive Name: Grand Summon
How to Use: Grand Summon will allow you to summon any aeon and put him in 
full overdrive mode. This means that even if your aeon has an empty Overdrive 
bar, when you Grand Summon it, the Overdrive Bar will be filled up completely 
and you can perform an Overdrive attack immediately. It’s very useful for 
powerful aeons such as Bahamut up to the Magus Sisters. Also, if your Aeon’s 
Overdrive bar is already full and you Grand Summon it, you can only use your 
Overdrive once.

----
LULU
----
Overdrive Name: Fury
How to Use: This is the Overdrive that I get questions the most. To use the 
Overdrive, you’ll need to rotate the right analog stick as many times as you 
can until the timer reaches 0. The number of times you successfully made a 
rotation determines the number of times Lulu will perform that magic without 
the use of MP. Beware though that although she performs them a couple of 
times, the black magic will be weaker than normal.

Spells Available for Fury: Fire, Fira, Firaga, Water, Watera, Wateraga, 
Blizzard, Blizzara, Bilizzaga, Thunder, Thundara, Thundaga, Bio, Demi, Death, 
Drain, Osmose, Flare, Ultima

-----
RIKKU
-----
Overdrive Name: Mix
How to Use: Using Rikku’s Overdrive is easy. Just select 2 items and Rikku 
will combine them for effect. Check the Mix Abilities Section for more info. 
I separated it since it is quite big.

-----
AURON
-----
Overdrive Name: Bushido
How to Use: Auron’s Overdrives are done, much like the same as Zell did in 
FF8. Just follow the button combination for each type of Overdrive. Do it 
within the time limit. If not, the Overdrive won’t be successful.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name                  Button Combination                Requirement

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----
WAKKA
-----
Overdrive Name: Slots
How to Use: Much the same as Cait Sith in FF7. Just try your best to have the 
best possible combination in the slots. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overdrive Name:  Description                                      Acquirement
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Element Reels  - no match would mean dealing a critical hit       default
                 on one enemy without any elemental attribute.
               - two similar and one different result means 
                 elemental damage on one random enemy onscreen.
               - three similar results means inflicting 
                 elemental damage on all enemies on the
                 screen.

Attack Reels   - allows Wakka to attack enemies 2-12 times        Win 
blitzball
                 depending on the result of the reels.            
tournaments.
                 (eg: 3 "2-hits" lets Wakka unleash 12 
                 consecutive attacks against enemies, which

e. Special Abilities
--------------------

There are certain abilities that need more expounding. They most of the time 
give off great items and some affect outcomes of battles. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
BRIBE

Description and how to use: Bribe is mainly for Rikku, but all characters can 
learn it. Bribing means to pay the enemy so that he won’t fight anymore. 
Apart from leaving, the enemy will leave behind rare items that will help you 
throughout the game. Bribing needs a lot of money you’ll need millions of 
Gils. To get more money, just beat the mimics at Omega Ruins plus have an 
equipment with a Gillionaire Ability. This will net you at least 100,000 Gil 
every win. Now, if you want to bribe an enemy, check its HP. All you need is 
to give money that is equivalent to 1500% of its HP. That seems huge. Indeed 
it is. Example, you want to bribe a Great Malboro. It has 64,000 HP. If you 
get 1500% of it, you’ll get 960,000 Gil. You can compute it in 2 ways:

Solution #1: (short but hard to compute in mind)
Multiply the HP (64000) by 15. You get 960,000.

Solution #2: (long but easy to compute in mind)
Multiply the HP (64000) by 10, you’ll get 640000. Then add half of it which 
is 320000. You get 960,000. 

After successfully bribing the enemy, it will leave and you will have won the 
battle. The items will appear in the spoils that you’ll receive. You’ll need 
to do a lot of bribing in order to get some rare items that give you 
excellent abilities. Perfect example is bribing the Great Malboro. It will 
give you 6 Wings to Discovery. It will lead you to learning the Break HP 
Limit giving you the ability to increase your Max HP over 9999. But, if you 
give less the amount of money, you’ll miss and the enemy will continue to 
fight.

4. Aeon Strategies and Secrets
==============================

Valefor
-------
Valefor is airborne and thus, he sometimes evade attacks. You can use his 
Sonic Wings ability, which slows down enemy movement. If you’re lucky and the 
opponent is too slow, you’ll be able to use Sonic Wings for more than 20 
times in succession. As for Valefor’s Overdrive attack Energy Ray, this will 
affect all enemies on screen and it will deal non-elemental damage. Although 
Valefor is the weakest among the Aeons, he is still a force to be reckoned 
with. 

Valefor has a second overdrive called the Energy Blast. You can get it at the 
shop in Besaid. Talk to the woman with the dog and she will give you an item 
that will make Valefor learn the overdrive. Next, if you managed to acquire 
Yuna’s Celestial Weapon, the Nirvana, you’ll notice that Valefor’s powerful 
attacks (overdrives) will break the 9,999 damage barrier and thus, inflicts 
maximum potential damage.

Would you want to learn the Al Bhed language? Lucky for you there are Al Bhed 
Primers scattered through out the world. Each of them correspond to an 
equivalent Alphabetic character. There are 26 of them all (total letters of 
the alphabet) and you need to compile them so that the subtitles and voices 
will change depending on the letters you’ve discovered so far. Those letters 
in Red are already translated. In order to compile them, you’ll need to go to 
the Al Bhed Compilation Spheres. It will save your Al Bhed dictionary. Also,

Compilation Sphere Locations
============================
1. There is a compilation sphere near the ruins in the beginning of the game 
before meeting up with Rikku for the first time. You’ll need to use this if 
you have a previous save game that has Al Bhed Primers already discovered.

2. You can find one inside the Djose Highroad Al Bhed Shop.

3. There is a compilation sphere inside the home of the Al Bhed. You’ll find 
it when the party is searching for Yuna inside.

4. You can find a sphere inside the Travel Agency at Thunder Plains.

                       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Scattered throughout Spira are some hidden writings that are written in the 
Al Bhed Language. You must have acquire at least 12-15 Primers in order to 
have a clue as to what the letters denote. Here are the clues I’ve found so 
far.

---------------------------------
CLUE #1: Mi’ihen Highroad - Ruins
---------------------------------
“There is a valley in a vast plain with a great thorn beside. From the thorn 
look cross the vale to the other side.”

Explanation: This one talks about Tidus’ Ultimate Weapon that can be found in 
the northwestern area of the Calm Lands.

------------------------------------------------------------------
CLUE #2: Baaj Temple - When you first enter Spira in the beginning
------------------------------------------------------------------
This clue is found when you first enter Spira, on the far right of the 
lake you'll find a plateau, on one of the pillars will be written 

"In the land, bolts of light illuminate the blackest night. With "Macalania" 
behind the 4th pillar you sight, look not on the left but on the right." 

Exaplanation: This pertains to the Celestial Weapon of Kimahri. You can 
search on the fallen tower on the right for his Weapon.

-------------------
CLUE #3: Calm Lands
-------------------
This is a series of clues in the Calm Lands. The first can be found 
written on a thorn sticking out of the ground near the man who explains to 
you about the "Scar"

Clues are in order as follows:
"With the vale at your back go 49, then 7 to the right in the truest line."
"With me at your back go 20, then 20 to the right. Right 16, and right 4"
"Continue on. Find me."

Explanation: This will reveal the Airship password “Godhand” that will allow 
you to acquire Rikku’s Celestial Weapon.

                             ALL ABOUT CHOCOBOS
                       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The Chocobo is an integral part of any Final Fantasy game. It’s been around 
ever since the first game for the NES arrived. These cutesy birds are one of 
the best form of transportation in the game since they are fast and there are 
no enemy encounters while you are riding them. Later in the game, 
(specifically, when you reach Sin) you’ll be able to train them and engage in 
mini-games. Head for the camp at the Calm Lands and you’ll see the trainer 
just outside the entrance. You can train your Chocobo now and receive some 
prices once you achieve records. Here are the mini-games. Take note that 
during your first time, there will only be 1 game, the Wobbly Chocobo. Once 
you’ve met the quota time, you’ll unlock the 2nd mini-game. That goes the 
same for the third and the final game. As for the prizes, you’ll receive 
prizes every time you beat your personal best record for that particular 
training.

===================
CHOCOBO TRAINING #1
===================
WOBBLY CHOCOBO

Here, your main goal is to reach the finish line at the end. You must lead 
your Chocobo in between the trainer and his Chocobo. Sounds easy right? Well, 
the Chocobo is still wild and thus, it won’t go in a straight line. Instead, 
it will go left or right randomly and you have to maintain control so that 
you’ll reach the finish line. Just use left or right on the D-pad to control 
the Chocobo.

1st Quota Time: 12.8 seconds
Prizes:         Elixir, X-Potion

===================
CHOCOBO TRAINING #2
===================
DODGER CHOCOBO

In this training, all you have to do is to dodge the balls that comes your 
way. Use the Directional Pad to either move left or right. The balls come 
quite fast and you’ll be hit if you move only a little. When you see a ball 
at the distance, move to the opposite direction at once.

1st Quota Time: 16.8 seconds
Prizes:         Lv. 1 Key Sphere, Mega-Potion

===================
CHOCOBO TRAINING #3
===================
HYPER DODGER CHOCOBO

This is a tougher version of the dodger chocobo. First, a ball will be thrown 
at you but when it gets near you, it will split into 5 balls that will 
scatter in all directions. To evade this ball, you’ll need to move as far 
away as possible. Apart from this hard to evade ball, there are also birds 
that swoop down on your chocobo. They are much tougher because even if you 
move to other directions, the birds sometimes follow you. The best way to 
evade these birds is to confuse them by alternately changing your direction.

1st Quota Time: 18.5 seconds
Prizes:         Lv. 2 Key Sphere

===================
CHOCOBO TRAINING #4
===================
CATCHER CHOCOBO

This is the most challenging and the most entertaining game among the 4. 
First, you’ll now be challenged by the Chocobo Trainer. You have 45 seconds 
to reach the finish line. Apart from finishing first, you’ll have other goals 
to achieve. If you acquire the balloons that are scattered throughout the 
track, it will subtract 3 seconds from your total time when you reach the 
finish line. Thus, it is possible to achieve 0.0 seconds. Next, as with your 
training in the dodger games, you’ll have to dodge the swooping birds once 
more. If you get hit by one of them, 3 seconds will be added to your total 
time. Don’t worry too since these rules are also applicable to the trainer. 
Let’s try to have an example. If you reach the finish line at 45.0 and you 
got 15 Balloons and 2 Birds was able to hit you, remove 15 x 3 = 45 seconds 
from your time. It will be 0 then. But, 2 birds x 3 = 6 seconds will be added 
and thus making your total time into 6.0 seconds. 

1st Quota Time: 45.0 seconds
Prizes:         Lv. 3 Key Sphere, Lv. 4 Key Sphere, Turbo Ether

                       -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
                              BUTTERFLY CATCHING
                       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

In Macalania Woods, there will be 2 areas where you can catch blue 
butterflies for treasures. In the 1st area, you’ll see one of the weird 
creatures that was with Seymour. You’ll need to capture 7 blue butterflies 
within the time limit in order to acquire the treasure. But first, examine 
the flying butterflies in order to go into the butterfly catching mode where 
blue and red butterflies appear. The red butterflies will call on fiends and 
will eat up a second or 2 from your timer so try your best to dodge them. 
Once you’ve found all 7, a treasure will appear in that area for you to keep. 
The first area contains a Teleport Sphere and the second area (which is much 
tougher to beat than the first) contains the Saturn Sigil for Kimahri’s 
Ultimate Weapon.

Here’s a strategy I made. Let me remind you that you need to be quick. 
Stopping at any point or having misencounters with the fiends will definitely 
make you lose the mini-game. In this strategy, I will tell you which part of 
the road you should be while passing the red butterflies so that they won’t 
touch you. This goes the same for the Blue butterflies. If I say up, that 
means that you should stay in the upper part of the road in order to get past 
the red butterfly (in that part of the road) unharmed and flawlessly. B 
stands for the Blue Butterfly so if you’re at the B in my strategy, that 
means that you should get that blue butterfly next. 

Example: Left, Right, B, Down, Center

- in this particular example, on the first red butterfly, stay on the left 
side of the road in order to evade it. On the next red butterfly, stay right. 
Next, you should now get a Blue Butterfly (your position doesn’t matter since 
it moves around more than the reds), next would be another red butterfly, 
stay on the lower side of the road, then the next red one, stay at the center 
of the road since there are 2 red butterflies either on the left and right or 
up and down. And so on...

Just remember that you need to run continuously in order for you to barely 
win. Doing Part 1 efficiently should give you around 2.0 seconds to spare. 
Part 1 will give you around 1.5 only. Here goes. Also, the prize inside the 
chest varies.

Part 1 (for the Teleport sphere/Phoenix Down)
---------------------------------------------
B, Left, Right, B, Down, Up, Down, Up, B, Center, Down, Center, Right, Down, 
B, Up, B, Up, Down, Down, Up (do this very quickly), Down, B, B.

Part 2 (for the Saturn Sigil/Elixir)
------------------------------------
After changing into Catching Mode, go north and get the first Blue butterfly 
then go south. Let’s move on. Center, B, Center, Up, Right, B, Up, Down, 
Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, B, Left, Right, B, Down, Left, Down, B, Left, B.

To get the Sigil, you need to come back later before you enter sin. That’s 
it! I hope I was able to help. After getting all of the weapon, sigil and 
crest, upgrade Kimahri’s weapon to the max!


                       -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
                           CALM LANDS TRAINING ARENA
                       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

On the east side of the Calm Lands, you’ll be able to find a trainer there 
that managed a training arena. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have any fiends at 
first. You now have to catch those fiends for him. There are 9 fiends in the 
Calm Lands area and you’ll have to catch all of them first in order to open 
the training arena. In order to catch a monster, you have to defeat that 
monster with a special type of weapon. You can buy them from the trainer and 
they have the ability “Capture”. You can capture 10 of each kind of fiends. 
Take note that mechs (machina) are not fiends.

After completing the Calm Land fiends, you’ll be able to receive 60 Farplane 
Winds. You can then battle the new type of fiend the trainer made from the 
monsters. Chimerageist. This is applicable to other areas too. There are more 
to come for each part of Spira. Here are the lists.

c. MONSTER CREATION STRATEGIES
==============================

When you complete all the fiends in one area, a new monster will be created 
out of them. Another way of revealing a new monster creation is when you 
complete a specie. For example, when you get all the elements (White Element, 
Red Element, etc.), you’ll be able to unlock a new monster that is very very 
tough. You’ll be needing strategies for each since they have their unique way 
of fighting (may it either be on offense or defense). But as a general rule, 
you’ll need these abilities just to survive, Break HP Limit, Break Damage 
Limit, Celestial Weapons, Defense + 20%. Take note also that these New 
Creatures are impervious to any status effect. The HPs are also estimates 
since you cannot scan/sensor them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CATASTROPHE

HP:      Armor (450,000), True Form (3,500,000)
Attacks: Demi
AP:      ?
Gil:     ?
Steal:   ?
Items:   Designer Wallet, Triple Penalty

Strategy: Catastrophe is very very difficult. First, you need to get around 
its armor w/c roughly constitutes 400 thousand HPs! You can use your 
character here. Now, When the armor is broken, you’ll fight his true form. 
Now, that’s a HP, 3.5 Million. Now, in order to defeat him, you’ll need to 
use the Hastega and Quick Hit technique. You should have at least Auron/Tidus 
or Kimahri/Tidus use this technique. Or, you may want to start off with the 
Magus Sisters. The damage Catastrophe efficiently. Don’t forget let Cindy 
heal/Auto-life the other 2. It’s attacks are pretty strong (except for Demi), 
and your Aeons can handle them. But it’s another story with your main 
characters.

                                  BLITZ BALL
                       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

=====================
a. What is Blitzball?
=====================
Blitz Ball is an addictive and fun ball game held inside a giant water 
sphere. Here, players pass and shoot the blitz ball and their goal is to 
shoot as many goals into the opponent’s net. Blitz Ball has been in Spira for 
generations and it is the major entertainment for everyone.

========================
b. Rules and Regulations
========================
The rules are simple, you’ll just have to put the ball in the opponent’s 
court by shooting. Just remember that the game revolves greatly in 
Mathematics. You’ll have to compute the stats of the characters while 
performing actions. It will determine its success. Also, there are no fouls 
in the game. ^_^ So don’t worry about getting tough out there.

=============
c. Game Modes
=============

League Mode
-----------
In the League mode, you’ll play a total of 10 games. There will be prizes for 
the top 4 teams so try your best to win as many games as possible. The 
opponents will be picked at random so don’t worry about any team battle 
sequences. After the 10 games, the teams will be given its final rank and the 
top player (most shots) will also be given a prize.

Tournament Mode

The illustration above shows how the tournament is held. First, Team A and 
Team F are seeded and will move on to the Quarterfinals at once. Teams 
B,C,D,E however, will duke it out on the first round. Then, the 4 winners 
will battle it out. The 2 losers will go to the losers bracket (below) to 
fight for 3rd place. The 2 remaining (undefeated) teams will duke it out for 
Championship and 2nd place.

Exhibition
----------
Here, you’ll have a chance to battle other teams in a fun game. There will be 
no records here so it will be ok if you either win or lose. You also won’t be 
able to gain experience for your character but you can learn techniques here.

==================
d. Character Stats
==================

Speed (SPD) - determines how fast the character can move in the water

Endurance (END) -  determines how much beating the character can endure 
before losing the ball.

Pass (PA) - this shows the ability (or the length) of the pass a particular 
character can do.

Shoot (SH) - this determines how good the shooting ability of the character 
is. The higher this stat, the longer the distance he/she can shoot.

Hit Points (HP) - the life of the character. It depletes when one holds the 
ball and if it reaches 0, that character will be unable to act or move.

Attack (ATK) - the power of the attacker during encounters/breakthroughs.

Block (BLK) - this shows the ability of the character to block passes or 
shots made while in encounter mode.

Catch (CAT) - this shows the ability of the goalie to catch a shot goal from 
the opponent.

==========
e. Actions
==========

Dribbling
---------
Just like in basketball, dribbling is when you handle the ball and try to 
take it to the opponent’s court. The only difference is that here in Blitz 
Ball, you just have to hold the ball.

Passing
-------
Passing is the act of throwing the ball at your teammate. During passing, the 
PA stat is taken into consideration. As the ball swoops through the water, it 
loses PA gradually. If it reaches 0, the pass will be incomplete. If it is at 
least 1, the receiver will be able to catch it. 

Shooting
--------
Shooting is the act of kicking/throwing the ball into the opponent’s net. The 
SH stat comes into play. While swooping through the water, again, it loses SH 
gradually. When it reaches the goalie, it will be compared to his/her CA 
(Catch) stat. If the CA is higher than your SH, the goalie will be able to 
catch it. If your SH is higher, on the other hand, your shot will be 
successful.

===========================
f. Encounters/Breakthroughs
===========================

Encounters happen when the player with the ball is confronted with 1 or more 
opposing player. The player with the ball chooses not to breakthrough but 
rather perform either a shot or a pass. Take note that BL (block) abilities 
of the opposing players will hinder the shot or pass. He can then use some 
abilities. 

If the player with the ball chooses to Breakthrough, his EN (Endurance) stat 
comes into play. It will be compared to the opposing player’s ATK (Attack). 
If the ATK is higher, the opposing player will acquire the ball. If not, the 
player will keep it. Sometimes, HP comes into play. If the HP is the opposing 
player is too high, there will still be a chance to get the ball even if the 
ATK is lower.

=============
g. Techniques
=============
Techniques are different abilities that you can use during the play. Each 
have their own effect and consequences (drop in HP or a status ailment). They 
can be learned through Techcopying or by winning an entire Tournament or a 
League. Here is a list of the Techniques found in the game.

===========
h. Techcopy
===========
Techcopy happens when your player successfully copies a technique of a 
player. Always remember that you have to mark that player first in order to 
learn the tech. Now, to learn a tech, when the words “Techcopy!” appears on 
the upper part of the screen (just as the opponent performs the tech), press 
X at once. There are various factors that affect techcopying. First, if you 
press early or too late, you cannot learn it. It must be a single press on 
the X button, at the right time. Also, if you have a lower level than that 
character, it will be most likely that you’ll fail to learn the tech.

===================
i. Team Information
===================

Al Bhed Psyches
---------------
The Al Bhed Pysches aren’t good shooter but rest-assured, you’ll have tons of 
problems with their goalie which can even catch a good Sphere Shot. They are 
also on par with your team when it comes to breakthroughs. The players are 
also fast and they have strategy. For me, they are the hardest to beat.

Besaid Aurochs
--------------
Your team is weak compared to the others but you have a good goalie (Keepa) 
and an excellent shooter (Tidus). If you managed to get the Jecht Shot, Tidus 
will be unstoppable.

Guado Glories
-------------
The Guado Glories move very quickly in the water. They are good passers but 
they have low HP. Their goalie is also easy to shoot around.

Kilika Beasts
-------------
The Kilika beast are the weakest among the computer teams. They have average 
shooters, passers and goalie. They are also easy to breakthrough. Their 
advantage is that they can easily block passes and shots and they have an 
ample amount of techniques. 

Luca Goers
----------
The Luca Goers is an excellent team. They excel in all fields. But then, a 
high leveled Tidus will bring them down. 

Ronso Fangs
-----------
Talk about strength and HP! They can easily take on 3 men during 
breakthroughs. They also have good passing and catching skills. Their 
weaknesses are their shooters and their goalie. And, most importantly, you 
can always outrun them since they are so slow.

==================
j. Status Ailments
==================

Poison
------
During Poison status, the character loses HP while moving around with the 
ball much faster than normal status.

Sleep
-----
During Sleep, the character can’t move or act. To wake him/her up, just wait 
until he/she wakes up or, pass the ball to him/her (this will give the ball 
to the enemy though).

Wither
------
During wither status, one stat (either HP, ATK, or any other) will be halved 
temporarily. It will return back to normal after time lapses.

=====================
k. Character Level Up
=====================
Character Level Ups are what you should aim for. They improve your 
character’s performance during games. To level up a character, just keep him 
active in the playing field and when the game is in Half Time or the Game 
Ends, your characters will gain more experience and eventually level up. You 
can only level up your characters in the Tournament or the League Mode.

=============
l. Strategies
=============

1. Mark Players who are weaker than yours or those who have an ability to 
learn. This will give you defensive and offensive advantage. 

2. If you’re going for a shot, try to evade any opposition and do your best 
to go to the opponent’s goal as near as possible. 

3. Passing is the key element of the game. This will set you up for a play. 
You may pass a ball to a far player and let him/her lure the opponents to 
him. Make sure that he has a good passing ability also and make sure that you 
have a shooter near the goal. When the opponents close in, pass it to your 
shooter for a more clearer shot at the goal.

4. Try to learn as many techniques as you can. These will help you throughout 
your games and most of them will give you a fair advantage over stronger 
players.

o. Blitz Ball Secrets
=====================

Center Attack Formation
-----------------------
In order to acquire this formation for your team, you’ll need to reach Team 
Level 2. To do this, you have to win 5 games in the league or the tournament 
mode.

Flat Line Formation
-------------------
You’ll need to reach Team Level 6 in order to acquire this Defensive 
Formation. 
You need to win a total of 25 Games. 

Counter Formation
-----------------
You’ll need to reach Team Level 8 to get this Defensive Formation. This is 
much the same as the formation of the Opposing CPU teams. 

Double Sides Formation
----------------------
When your team reaches level 9, you’ll be able to acquire this defensive team 
formation automatically. 

The Jecht Shot
--------------
If you’ve completed the Jecht Shot Challenge on the S.S. Liki before reaching 
Luca, Tidus will automatically learn this technique. This technique is so 
powerful it will be most likely to have a 90% success rate. First, the SH 
stat will be increased by 5. The most useful aspect of the Jecht Shot is that 
if you have 2 blockers, you don’t have to break through. Just shoot the Jecht 
Shot over them. Tidus will put them out of commission and you’ll have a full 
SH on the goalie. If you have 3 or more defenders, the 3rd defender will 
deplete your SH. Even though it costs 120 HP, it is worth it.
