    1. INTRODUCTION
    
    This is an FAQ for Squaresoft's Final Fantasy X-2. It deals with abilities
    and dresses, which are basically the core of the game's class system. During
    battle, based on what Result Plates you have equipped and what Dresses
    you have slotted in them, you can change your dress (i.e., class) at will,
    with a resulting change in abilities. (See my Result Plate FAQ for more
    on those). While in a particular class, you will start learning abilities
    specific for that class, by way of gathering AP. AP is awarded to a
    character when that character uses a particular ability it has already
    learned; when a monster is defeated, every member of your party gains AP.
    
    Learning abilities is the key to powering up your characters. More powerful
    abilities tend to take more AP to learn. There are also certain abilities
    you cannot learn before learning other ones; for instance, a Black Mage
    cannot learn (i.e., cannot devote AP to) the Black Magic "Fira" if she
    hasn't already learned "Fire". This FAQ will list abilities categorized
    by dress, giving the names in both Japanese text and English (so that those
    of you who can't read Japanese well can follow along), and give an
    explanation of those abilties.
    
    Certain abilities require extra steps to learn. For instance, all of the
    Magic Gunner's "Magic Bullet" abilities (similar to Blue Magic from
    previous FFs) require that the Magic Gunner get hit by that ability first.
    Other abilities require certain items in your possession before you can
    start learning them. The Utahime class has two dances that require special
    items to learn; each of the special dresses also has "Break HP Limit" and
    "Break Damage Limit" that can only be learned by getting special items. I
    will note these in the FAQ and attempt to explain how to get them.
    
    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. ABILITIES/DRESSES
    
    This section is split up by Dress. It is sorted by the in-game order
    on the ability screen (so Gunner comes first, Magic Gunner second,
    all the special dresses last, etc.)
    
    Each ability will list the number of AP needed to learn it (0 means it
    is mastered by default), the MP to use it, if necessary, and a brief
    description of the ability. Auto abilities activate automatically and do
    not need to be selected. All others are commands of some type.
    
    Although there are fourteen standard dresses, each character's Trainer and
    Mascot have different sets of abilities. Also, each special dress is actually
    three separate parts. Thus, though there are only 17 dresses total, there are
    actually 27 sets of abilities.

    Magic Bullets
    Magic Bullets work similar to Blue Magic from the previous FFs. If a Magic
    Gunner is hit by a learnable ability, she will learn that ability and be
    able to cast it in subsequent battles by use of the Magic Gunner's Magic
    Bullet ability.
    Some things to note:
    **The Magic Gunner appears to be immune to the ability if and only if she
    is learning it. For instance, a Magic Gunner who is hit by Bad Breath for
    the first time will learn it, and will also not be affected by it.
    However subsequent Bad Breaths seem to affect her.
    **Abilities do not transfer. That is, if Yuna learns Blaster as a Magic
    Gunner, Rikku and Paine still have to learn it by themselves before they
    can use it.
    **Unlike Stragus in FF6, the ability actually has to hit the Magic Gunner 
    for them to learn it. Thus, for a defensive ability like Mighty Guard, the 
    only way for your party to learn it is if the enemy somehow casts it on you. 
    This is usually accomplished via Reflect or Confuse.
    
    And now for a list of the Magic Bullets:
    Fire Breath (ファイアブレス) - Fire attack to all enemies.
    Seed Cannon (タネ大砲) - Damages an enemy for 1/2 health.
    Stone Breath (石のいぶき) - Petrify on all enemies.
    Absorb (吸収) - Absorbs HP/MP from an enemy. 3 MP.
    White Wind (ホワイトウィンド) - Heals all allies.
    Bad Breath (くさい息) - Multiple status effects on all enemies.
    Mighty Guard (マイティガード) - Shell and Protect on all allies.
    Insanity Sun (インサニティサン) - Damage to all enemies.
    Scream in the Night (真夜中の叫び) - Damage to all enemies.
    Armor Piercing Bullet (徹甲弾) - Damage to one enemy.
    Motorgun (モーターガン) - Damage to all enemies.
    Genocide (ジェノサイド) - Damage to all enemies.
    Quake (震天) - Damage to all enemies, plus Defense and Magic Defense down.
    1000 Needles (はりせんぼん) - 1000 damage to an enemy.
    Storm Cannon (シュトルムカノーネ) - Damage to all enemies.

    3. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    
    Q. Why can't I master (insert dress here)?
    A. In the case of the Magic Gunner, mastering them includes getting all the
    Magic Bullets. Thus, even if you learned all the abilities you will not
    get Master status in Magic Gunner unless you get all the Magic Bullets.
    For Dancer and each of the special dresses, they all have abilities that
    can be learned only after getting certain items. See the specific dresses
    for details. For Mascot, you have to learn the "Iron Wall", "Assault", and
    "SOS Protect" abilities from Fighter first.
    
    Q. What are the best dresses?
    A. Each class is really specialized for certain situations. Thus, some
    classes will be more useful than others depending on what you want to do.
    Mascot seems to be a rather powerful class but there are other candidates.
    In my personal opinion, the most useful classes are White Mage, Berserker,
    Samurai, Dark Knight, Gunner, and Mascot.
    The special dresses are also very very powerful, if you manage to master
    them and get the "Break Limit" abilities.
    
    Q. How can I use these abilities while wearing other dresses?
    A. Certain items will let you cross abilities. Each Mascot dresswear is
    also specialized in this respect; for instance, Yuna's Mascot lets her use
    most of the Dark Knight or Fighter abilities she's already learned, Rikku's
    Mascot lets her use learned Berserker or White Mage abilities, and Paine's
    Mascot lets her use Samurai and Black Mage abilities, which makes Mascot
    a very powerful class. 
    As far as accessories go, if you get Episode Complete status for O'aka
    (by paying off his debt in SL 2 and then finishing all the missions at
    Macalania in subsequent SL's) he will sell you specific items such as 
    "Knowledge of Sword Techniques" or "Knowledge of Black Magic", which
    will let you use those techniques if you have them equipped.
    Finally certain Result Plates, when equipped, will also let you use these
    sets of abilities (see my Result Plate FAQ for details).
    
    Q. What should I master first?
    A. It's really up to you. Because of the Mascot dresses, I'd personally
    have Yuna master Fighter and Dark Knight, Rikku master White Mage and
    Berserker, and Paine master Samurai and Black Mage as fast as possible.
    Otherwise other classes have individual abilities that are fairly useful.
    The Gunner's Quick Trigger and the associated Quick Trigger Lv. 2 and
    Quick Trigger Lv. 3 are useful; the Thief's "Always Steal" and "Steal
    Good Stuff" are good too.
