Info:

I submitted this because people used to have problems with the current Synth
Guide on GameFAQs, since it came from the Japanese game. The names of things
have been roughly translated and are different from what's in the North 
American version now. I'm glad this helped you all.

My info's from personal experience, the GameFAQs message boards, and the
Brady Games Player's Guide. Enjoy!

My guide does not cover everything involved in synthesis, such as most recipe
locations, or the locations of materials that are in treasure chests.
Check one of the other helpful GameFAQs guides.
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/game/915410.html
links to the FAQs and Guides page.

-VERSION 1 (FINAL)-

-Deleted all my previous update infos, they're not exactly useful in the 
 first place.
-Deleted my full email address from the guide.
-Deleted most references to treasure chests. It's obvious by now that I'll 
 NEVER get those done. 
-Made a few minor changes to the guide, mostly adding little bits of info.

Huh. Looks like this "update" is mostly um... deletions. Woo.

1. Enemy Drop List
------------------

This list is ranked in order of items by alphabetical/Rarity order...
Confusing? Well, it's like this: They are put alphabetically in terms of 
material type name, so it would start off with the Blazing Materials, then the 
Bright Materials, and so on. But each material set is ranked in terms of their
Rarity level. So the first eight items in the list are in this order: Blazing 
Shard, Blazing Stone, Blazing Gem, Blazing Crystal, Bright Shard, Bright Stone,
Bright Gem, Bright Crystal. Got it memorized? 

Note: Nothing other than Orichalcums, Orichalcum+ses, and Mythril materials
are found in treasure chests. In terms of synth materials, anyways.

The Plain Drop List just shows the materials and the enemies that drop them;
nothing fancy.
The other sections contain end-game enemy locations. Maybe I'll jot down
the locations for other Battle Levels sometime, maybe not. 
But most people only material hunt at the end-game anyways.

4. Bulky Vendor FAQ Section
---------------------------

When you enter specific areas, you might get a message saying, "There's a Rare
Heartless!" These are the Bulky Vendors. Immediately, you must destroy
every destructable object in the area, and for the love of Pete, do NOT leave
the area! At some point (for me, when I destroy the first thing) some enemies
and the Bulky Vendor(s) will appear. 

Now, the Bulky Vendors are special. They cannot be hurt by you, but their HP
decreases at a fixed rate over time. For each quarter of their HP that is
remaining, they have different Reaction Commands.

Note that the Vendors run around like crazy when their HP gets lower, so it
gets harder to get to the front of them to use the Reaction.

HP         |   Reaction Command           |  Prize
------------------------------------------------------------
100-75%    |   Capsule Prize              |  Bright Shard 
74-50%     |   Rare Capsule               |  Bright Stone
49-24%     |   Limited Capsule            |  Bright Gem
24-1%      |   Prime Capsule              |  Bright Crystal

You will always get the Bright Material it drops- the drops have 100% 
chances. They will also drop numbers of HP, Munny, and Drive orbs, depending
on what Reaction you had. 

They also drop Orichalcums. Unlike the Bright Materials, these do NOT
always drop. Now, I have seen conflicting points having to do with the 
drop rate of Orichalcums. Some say it varies depending on the Reaction, some
say it's always the same- Obviously the better rate is supposed to be when 
its HP is lowest according to the former method.

The proposed difference between drop rates for Orichalcums at the Vendor's
worst and at its best aren't that much different- the lowest rate is higher
than most other synth material drops anyways. I say, if you're wanting an
Orichalcum more, wait a little for its HP to drop somewhat and try. If you
want a specific lower-level Bright material, though, then get it and take
your chances. 

So far, I have found all the areas where the Bulky Vendors spawn. They are:

Land of Dragons  | Checkpoint
Beast's Castle   | West Hall
Agrabah          | Bazaar
Halloween Town   | Candy Cane Lane (Two Bulky Vendors spawn here!)***
Olympus Coliseum | Cave of the Dead: Entrance (Two BVs again!)

***Note that at Candy Cane Lane, you must spin the merry-go-round to make
the Heartless appear. 

After you defeat one in an area, it won't respawn there for a while, unless
you go out and defeat a different one.
So if you're Orichalcum hunting, you should probably go between Halloween
Town and Olympus Coliseum repeatedly, as they each spawn two.


----------------------------------------
5. Orichalcum+/Ultima Weapon FAQ Section
----------------------------------------

Orichalcum+ses have only one use- making the Ultima Weapon. There are 7 in
all. The recipe says you need 13 to make it, but you can cut the ingredients 
in half with an Energy Crystal and it all works out.

UPDATE: I thought this was obvious, but the Moogle needs to be a high enough
level to use Energy materials (LV2) before you can use an Energy Crystal to
make this.

UPDATE: For the lazy, here's the recipe:
7 Orichalcum+ 
1 Orichalcum
1 Mythril Crystal
1 Dense Crystal
1 Twilight Crystal
4 Serenity Crystal
1 Energy Crystal (necessary!!) 

You need the Ultima Recipe to make the Ultima Weapon. It's found in 
Twilight Town, in the room where Donald and Goofy were sleeping, as Sora.
Don't go frantically looking for it as Roxas; you'll never find it.

The stats of the Ultima Weapon are: 
6 Strength, 4 Magic, MP Hastega as Weapon Ability.

The locations of the seven Orichalcum+ses are:

Space Paranoids - Central Computer Mesa (chest)
Twilight Town - Sunset Terrace (as Sora) (chest)
The World That Never Was - The Brink of Despair (chest)***
100 Acre Wood - Finish Starry Hill
Atlantica - Finish "A New Day is Dawning"
Olympus Coliseum - Beat Goddess of Fate Cup
Any Moogle Shop - Get at least one of EVERY other material

That wasn't so hard, was it?

***I should state that the Orichalcum found here is hugging the wall of a 
building on a narrow ledge next to the pit below the Org's castle. So you 
might not notice it the first time you go through. It is NOT the large
treasure chest.

Note: THERE IS NO ULTIMA WEAPON+. 

UPDATE: Well, this seems to happen a lot, though I don't know why people don't
realize it at the time, realize it after going back, or why it isn't given
directly to the moogle in the first place... 

When you get the Orichalcum+ prize for obtaining one of every material, YOU
MUST LEAVE THE MOOGLE SHOP AND RETURN TO SUBMIT IT TO THE MOOGLE. If you don't
do so, even if you have all the other necessary materials, the Ultima Weapon
cannot be made. OK? Good.

8. Synthesis Collection Prizes
-------------------------------

If you meet certain objectives when handing over collected materials to the
Moogles, they will give you prizes. They can be items, rare synth materials,
the ability to buy specific synth items at stores, etc. etc.
The achievements you've accomplished are listed in the "Lists" section
of the moogle shops. 

Item collectors, don't worry. The collection is cumulative, and is stored
throughout all moogles- so you could give six different moogles five Frost
Shards each, and you would get the ability to buy them afterwards.
You don't need to wait until you gather 30 at once.

This list shows the achievements and prizes in that order.

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

LV 1-- Synthesize items.
LV 2-- Use Bright or Energy Materials in Creations, Free Development or
       Recipes.
       Bright Materials increase EXP gained from synthesis.
       Energy Materials cut synthesis item costs in half.
LV 3-- Use Serenity Materials in Creations.
       Serenity Materials, when added to a previously created item, 
          create for you an entirely new item.
LV 4-- Can use both Bright and Energy materials in Free Development or 
       Recipes at once; can use two of the Bright, Energy, or Serenity
       materials in Creations (but still only one of each) per creation.
LV 5-- Rank C items in Creations cost half the price.
LV 6-- Rank B items in Creations cost half the price.
LV 7-- Rank A items in Creations cost half the price.
LV 8-- Make Mythril Gems in Free Development.
LV 9-- Rank S items in Creations cost half the price.

10. Total Materials Needed to Synthesize Everything
---------------------------------------------------

This info was taken from 
http://www.esque.com/slr/gamefaqs/kh2_synthesis_additions.txt

Collect all these materials, and you can make every synthesis item without
needing to halve costs of anything (excluding the Ultima Weapon). If you 
make two of any item (not counting when you add in a Serenity material to 
make the next item on the list) you may not end up with enough materials,
so if this is all you get, don't make any more. 
Of course, since the Moogles level up as you synthesize things, and thereby
drop the costs of items in the Creations section, you'll likely end up with
a surplus of materials in the end. But with these numbers, you can make all
the items, in any order that pleases you.

11. What to Equip When Item Hunting
-----------------------------------

Now, most of this is really just based on personal preference.
However, there is an ability in the game called "Lucky Lucky". 
Every Lucky Lucky equipped to every active party member increases the drop
rate of items. What the exact increase is, I'm not sure, but, as said in
GameFAQs' Bestiary/Synthesis Guide, made by UltimaterializerX, 

"dramage notes that each Lucky Lucky equipped will increase the drop rate by 
one-third. For example, if a drop rate was originally 12%, one LL will increase
it to 16%. From there, you continue multiplying the new drop rate percentage
by 1.33 until you get the effect of the number of LLs you have equipped. 12% 
prorates out to an 88% drop rate with the 7LL setup."

I'm not totally sure if this is true but it's better numbers than nothing.
So there you go!
For convienence's sake, you can multiply the drop rates by seven if you're
using all seven. It actually ends up about the same. Though you probably 
don't care.

Anyway.

There are seven Lucky Luckies in total for the main party of Sora, Donald
and Goofy. There are more on some world-specific party members, but I forget
those, and at any rate it's better to use the SDG group.

Each of them learns Lucky Lucky as a skill at some point.
Each of them will eventually gain a weapon that has Lucky Lucky on it.
And there is an accessory with Lucky Lucky on it.

Sora's skill:    Learned based on level. The level depends on which weapon
                 you picked as Roxas before fighting Twilight Thorn.
                 Lv. 41 for the sword
                 Lv. 53 for the shield
                 And Lv. 99 for the staff.
Sora's weapon:   Sweet Memories, obtained after doing the second-last page
                 quest for Hundred-Acre Wood, called "The Expotition".
Donald's skill:  Learned after you, as Sora, fight the Nobodies in front
                 of the Mansion during your last visit to Twilight Town.
Donald's weapon: Meteor Staff, found in the Ship Graveyard: Seadrift Keep,
                 in Port Royal. It's on the top level, I believe, near the
                 opening to the Black Pearl.
Goofy's skill:   Learned after you defeat the three hyenas, Shenzi, Banzai,
                 and Ed, before fighting Scar in Pride Lands. It's the battle
                 where they're trying to kill Timon & Pumbaa.
Goofy's weapon:  Genji Shield, earned after beating the Titan Cup in
                 Olympus Coliseum.
The accessory:   Lucky Ring, obtained after beating the Pain & Panic Cup
                 in Olympus Coliseum.

12. Some Random Questions
-------------------------

Q: My moogle can't use Bright, Energy, or Serenity items.
A: I know. You must slaughter 100 virgins, men or women, doesn't matter, and
   bathe in their blood before it will.
   In all seriousness, level it up.

Q: How do I level up my moogle?
A: You must synthesize things. The moogle gains EXP for each item
   synthesized. The EXP earned is dependent on the item you make.

Q: Hi, my name is John Smith, and I'm emailing to ask for your help with an 
   issue I'm facing. As managing director of Smith's European Banks, I've 
   found that a recent death has left a sum of $15,000,000 unclaimed, and...
A: WHEN I FIND YOU I WILL KILL YOU SPAM-BOT

Q: Is it all right if I call Xenmas "Mansex"?
A: No. Absolutely not. The joke was funny the first time I saw it. Now 
   it's old. Really old. You will be forced to eat a fragmentation grenade
   if I hear you say that in my presence.

Q: You referred to a Pride Rock level up trick...
A: Get magic to level 53, equip Experience Boost and the Gull Wing Keyblade,
   get Magnega, get your health down to critical, then run to the Peak of
   Pride Rock and cast Magnega rapidly. Watch what happens.
   Also a good way to get masses of Lightning Shards.

Q: Which parts of your guide will help me complete the journal?
A: You have to complete the Synthesis List and the Synthesis Prizes sections
   in this guide in order to complete Jiminy's Journal and get the secret
   video on Normal mode. You also have to see/defeat (not sure which) all
   the enemies in the game, so you can use the enemy locations I have in
   here for help with that, too.
   I believe you also need to maximize the Moogle's level.

Q: OK, so you get the "secret video" on Normal by completing the Journal.
   What about the other modes?
A: Uh? I'm not sure why you'd ask me this question, as opposed to someone
   who wrote a complete FAQ, or even just on the message board, but OK:
   --Beginner: Go to Castle Oblivion. (You can't get it)
   --Standard: Complete the Journal
   --Proud: Seal all worlds. That means complete the Story in all of them.

Q: So, when you say that the Moogle going to level 9 cuts S-rank item prices
   by half, does that mean I can just level my Moogle up to make the Ultima
   Weapon instead of using an Energy Crystal?
A: First off, this method takes a lot longer, so I dunno why you'd try it.
   Secondly, cutting prices in half only refers to items in the Creations 
   list, not items in Recipes or Free Development.
   So, no.
