GENERAL CHEATS, HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
Completion bonus: Successfully complete the game to unlock the "New Game+" bonus at the main menu. Select this option to start a new game with all characters keeping the items that were obtained during your first game.
Easy AP (method one): Use this trick to easily master your Spheres. First, get the Key To Success accessory, which doubles everything (HP, MP, AP earned, experience earned, etc.), and the AP Egg accessory, which triples the amount of AP earned. Equipping both of these to one character turns one AP into six. Go out and buy 99 of any one item (Potions recommended). Enter battle against a fairly easy opponent, and each turn have the characters use a Potion on themselves. Since using items gives you AP, and you have the two accessories equipped, watch those Spheres get mastered in no time.
Easy AP (method two): This trick requires the Lure Bracer and the Treasure Hunt Garment Grid (obtained from Shinra in Chapter 3 or 5 by adding a coin in the Sphere Break game that says Item or Rare). Set your Cursor to "Memory". Equip everyone with the desired Dress Sphere. Go to a place where the enemies are strong enough to withstand several hits from your party, but not strong enough to kill you easily (such as Zanarkand Ruins, Mt. Gagazet, Calm Lands). Get into a battle. Have everyone use Mug. Each Mug attack used gains 1 AP to your character. It is best if you have the Key To Success and AP Egg, but either way works well.
Easy experience: Go to a place where the enemies do very little damage, such as Besaid, Kilika, etc. Have someone in the White Mage Dress Sphere, and the other two characters in any other Dress Sphere. Set your configuration so that your Cursor is on Memory. Go into battle. Eliminate all but one enemy. Have the White Mage use Pray, and have the other two characters do a move that will not harm the enemy (for example, Sentinal, Steal, Pilfer Gil, etc.) Note: Do a move that does not require MP. Pause game play once they all have their orders. While paused, keep the X button held with a rubber band, tape, etc. End the battle once you are done. You will be able to master Dress Spheres easily.
Easy gil: Once you gain access to digging in Bikanel Desert, dig there. After about ten digs, the robot that travels with you will say "Unidentified Object Approaching". Stand still and on the mini-map you will see a purple arrow approaching you. Stand there and it will go above you, sending you into a battle. This monster may seem impossible at this time, but do not worry; it will only eject you from battle after awhile. Using your Thief, steal from it to get a Megalixer, which sells for 5,000 gil. Then, using your Thief again, use Pilfer Gil and you will usually get anywhere from 1,000 to 2000 gil. Usually the monster will appear on two to three digs in a row. You can easily get up to 23,000 gil in five to ten minutes.
Easy battles (method one): To defeat enemies very easily, use the Alchemist Mix ability and combine a Holy Water with a Fire Gem, Water Gem, Ice Gem, etc. This will create a magic attack called White Hole which does about 10,000 damage to one enemy. To find gems easily, you need to rare steal from Flan Rojo, Flan Blanco, etc.
Easy battles (method two): For easier Boss battles, you can use special Dress Spheres. With Rikku's Master Triple HP, Shell ,and Protector and Paine's Master Triple HP, and Scare, these abilities make it very easy to defeat Vegnagun and Shuyin.
Easy healing: Once you get at least one Mage Dress Sphere (White Mage or Black Mage recommended), healing is much easier out of battle. Equip each girl with the Mage Sphere. This will drop their max HP drastically. Then, use Potions or Cure to heal them, then return their Dress Sphere to what it was before. Since the HP transitions go by percentage, and not a flat amount, having a Mage with 500 max HP fully healed transfers to a warrior with 1500 max HP, fully healed.
In-game reset: Press L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 + Start + Select during game play.
Skip intermission sequences: Pause game play during an intermission sequence, then press Square to skip the current scene.
Changing dress/job: During a battle, press L1 during your characters turn and a plate will appear. Choose your desired dress and press Action to activate it. For Yuna, once you get the Special Dress, you can use it during battle. During Yuna's turn, press L1 then R1 to the change to the Special Dress.
Secret scene: Get to the scene after Djose Temple where Yuna falls into the gaping hole and ends up on the farplane. First, she meets Shuin. Later, Shuin goes away and then the three main leaders of New Yevon, Youth Alliance, and Al Bhed appear. After they give Yuna a couple of Akagi Spheres, the scene will change. Suddenly Yuna will be in a black room with a spotlight on her. In this scene, you can walk around the dark room for a few seconds. If you continuously press Circle during that time, you will be presented with a secret scene. It is called "The Whistling Scene", and you will see Yuna scream then hear a faint whistle. She looks over to see a shadow of Tidus. She will then run after Tidus and follow him along a path until he disappears and she returns to the airship. Remember, do not stop pressing Circle button until you are sure the scene has finished. Note: You need to do this secret scene to get the "perfect ending".
Black Mage: Fast skill learning: The best place to do this is in Kilika Woods, near the save point. You will run into the Red Element and this is the monster that will "help" you. Being near a save point means you will not have to waste any Ethers or else. Usually you will run into two Red Elements and that flying bug. Kill the bug and one of the Red Elements. Then, switch the other two characters to the White Mage garment, and keep one still wearing the Black Mage garment. Make that person keep casting Fira. It will not affect the Red Element, so you will not kill it. Having the other two Praying will make the element unable to kill you. Keep on casting Fira until you run out of MP, then switch one of the White Mages into a warrior and kill the monster (Pain recommended. Repeat this several times until most of your skills have been learned.
Black Mage: Easy leveling: To level up your Black Mage with ease, set the cursor to "Memory". Go into a battle with any type of element, and cast the spell that the element is on it. Have one Alchemist that already learned Ether from the stash and keep casting it on the Black Mage. Also have a White Mage there to use Pray. Use a controller with an auto-fire feature and keep doing this repeatedly to level up your Black Mage.
White Mage: Easy leveling: Note: This trick requires a controller with an auto-fire feature. Change all characters' Dress Sphere to White Mage. Set the auto-fire to X and have everyone use the Pray ability... This works well when battling against the two lizards found on Mushroom Rock Road. Let everyone keep Praying and eventually they should master the White Mage Dress Sphere.
Recommended Blitzball players: The best two players you can scout are Yuyui and Lucil. They are both Lv max agents and cost 40 CPs to obtain. Yuyui has all her max stats as 99 and 255 for RNG and REC. She is perfect for any position on the field. Lucil is a bit lower with all her stats maxed at 77 and 177 for RNG and REC, but she is also good for the team. Lucil, however, has the Corkscrew Shot and the Overhead Volley.
Taking advantage of Garment Grid: Before the battle, make sure that transformations are on full mode. At the beginning of any battle, when all your characters are ready to act, simultaneously move them through the grid together. This will start a chain of constant wait mode. When the girl is done changing, she can automatically choose again. String all the transformations one after the other with all girls until you pass through all the gates on grid and get back to the job you want, resulting in having all the boosts from the Garment Grid before an enemy can even choose to attack (due to the constant string of wait mode). This is very useful with some Garment Grids, such as Tetra Guard to absorb Fire, Water, Ice, and Lightning before an enemy can attack you.
Longer Trigger Happy: Have someone equipped with the Gunner Dress Sphere and cast Haste on that person. Then, do Trigger Happy and it should take your chain up by at least eight.
Using Special Dress Spheres: To use each character's special Dress Spheres, you must activate all the Dress Spheres on your Result Plate (all lines in the plate should be glowing in blue). If activated, the "R1 Special Dress Change" message will flash. To change, press R1 and Action. The only difference is that the Special Dress Sphere will control the other character, and the character using the special Dress Sphere will be the only one who will receive the experience.
