    1. INTRODUCTION
    
    This is an FAQ for Squaresoft's Final Fantasy X-2. It deals with Result
    Plates (known in the US version as Garment Grids), which are the artifacts 
    used in conjunction with the Dresswears to allow your characters to change 
    class and use special abilities. Each Result Plate has a number of pits, 
    in which you can put Dresswears. Once a Result Plate is equipped on a 
    character, they will be able to start battle with any of the Dresswears 
    in that Result Plate as well as change based on the pattern of paths 
    engraved in the Result Plate.
    
    Certain Result Plates give you special abilities when equipped. Some
    Result Plates also have colored gates that give you additional abilities
    if you happen to pass through them with a class change. This FAQ will list
    those abilities for those of you unable to read the Japanese text (or
    those of you too lazy to look up the kanji).
    
    This FAQ makes use of SJIS encoding in order to display Japanese
    characters. I included this feature so that if you do not know
    Japanese, you can easily match up the characters on your TV screen
    to the characters in this guide. You will need to have support for
    viewing Japanese characters on your computer, however. Certain versions
    of Windows should have it built in; otherwise, you'll either need to
    get a program like NJStar Communicator, or you'll need to get 
    Japanese character support for Internet Explorer (free from Microsoft)
    and open this file in IE instead of Notepad/Wordpad.
    
    
    2. RESULT PLATES
    
    This section is sorted by the in-game sorting order. Each entry lists the
    number of pits, the abilities when equipped, the gates, and how to get it,
    if applicable. For gates, "Green, Red" means that passing through either the
    green or the red mode will give you the ability listed; "Green+Red" means
    that BOTH gates must be passed through in order to get the ability.
    
    An ability listed by itself, like "Haste" or "Cure", means you'll be able to
    cast it as a spell; something like "SOS Haste" means the ability will
    automatically activate if your HP goes yellow; and something like "Auto
    Haste" means the ability will automatically activate. "Fire Attack" means
    that your attacks will gain fire elemental status. "HP x2" means your max
    HP multiplies by 2.

    3. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    
    Q. How do I get...?
    A. I don't know. If it's not in this guide, I don't know, so don't bother
       emailing me and asking it.
    
    Q. I can't put my Special Dresswears in the Result Plates. How do I use them?
    A. Special Dresswears can only be accessed by pressing R1 on the Dressup
       screen once every other Dresswear in the Result Plate has been activated
       at least once. This means that if a Result Plate has 5 Pits, you must
       have changed dresses at least 4 times before you can use the special
       Dressup. The Result Plate "Mayowazaru Mono" (He Who is Not Lost) only has
       2 Pits, and is specially designed to make it easy to get to your Special
       Dress.
