To get Pupu card (level 5) you must encounter all 4 spaceships ( you must have Diablos ability Enc None to see them) go to the hole where Balamb Garden used to be, and you will encounter another spaceship.
Fight and defeat the spaceship. then you will encounter a Pupu.
You must feed it five Elixers and you will be rewarded by It's card.
It may only be Lvl 5, but it is certainly the hardest to get.
If you want all your GFs to learn abilities a lot quicker, head to cactuar island.
This can be found off the south-east coast of the esthar continent.
If you equip all of your GFs to your main party, they will learn abilities a lot quicker with every battle you get in, because the only enemies are cactuars.
Cactuars are very weak enemies and 20AP is given for each cactuar killed.
If your characters are at a high enough level, you can try and challenge the Jumbo Cactuar, just look for the green lump that pops up out of the ground on the island.
This has got quite a lot of HP and some fairly strong attacks, but i killed it easily with squalls lionheart attack and irvines shot limit break,using A.P. ammo.
When you kill it you can use cactuar as a GF. You can also find the island easily simply by looking for the green lump that keeps popping up, but you can only use the ragnarok to get on the island.
In case you don't know in the research lab you have an encounter every few steps and the no encounter ability does not work here so to avoid battle and save you're health for bahamut only walk when the core isnt glowing.hope this helped smell you later :-p
When trying to get Bahamut. Use Diablos on the Ruby dragons. This should help you defeat them quite easily as it can take off up to 7000HP.
Although Diablos will not effect Bahamut So if You Have use a Hero When he uses His big move you then should then be able to defeat him easier.
When facing any enemy that is not a boss you can kill it in one go.
Simply cast zombie or GF doomtrain, then cast life or use a phoenix down and they will instantly die
This is not a cheat but when you reach the G-garden and you are about to leave Irvine will choose the partys.He will have Rinoa and Selpie and Squall will have Zell and Quistis.If you agree then Rinoa says "Fine then we will have a good time.
"Then she hugs Irvine and Selpie will say "Yeah we will have a good time."And she hugs Irvine and they leave.Then Squall Zell and Quistis complains. When Irvine Rinoa and Selpie leaves,Quistis hugs Squall and says lets go.
First, you have to equip a GF that has ST/Attack ability then in the attack part you put in 100 Deaths (you can get them from draw it from a monster.
I forgot what monster I draw it from put it's possible) so now when you attack you kill the monster with 1 hit.
It dosn't work on some monster but I know it works on T-Rex's so you can train on them.
Thats how I got all my characters up to 100.
another way to get eden is to draw it from tiamat in Ultimecias castle,instead of fighting ultima weapon.
also a good way to get strong is to draw 100 full lifes from an enemy and junction it to ur hp you well have 9999 hp
Some people may say if you want lvl ups go to heaven or hell island well this is easier and you can do it sooner on disc 2 wen you are infiltrating the garden to get the sorceress there is a hockey arena fight there you get 6 ap each playerand you usually fight three and I lvl up real easy cause all you have to do is use a gf and there dead but to warn you if you get high lvled like to lvl 70 and then leave it screws you up for the rest of the game so get to lvl 100 on all of you're people before you leave
If you are lik me and like the card game then you must hate the random rule and you will probably use it alot on this side quest so if you always want you're strong cards before you do this side quest use you're card mod ability to get rid of all you're weaker cards wich means even wen it's random you will only have strong cards
If you want to get money fast all you need to do is refine mesmerise blades into mega-potions (1 mesmerise blade=2 mega-potions)using the ability recovery-med refine. You can then sell these for 5000gil each! (or if you have the sell high ability you can sell them for about 7500gil). To get mesmerise blades you can either fight mesmerises on winter island, north of trabia garden or refine the card using the card-mod ability.
You MUST have ragnarok to do this.
Go to the hills of esthar,(which is the great plains) fight ruby dragon and cockatrice and you will get about 800 exp.if odin appears,you will get additional 400exp (I think)and I trained there untill my squall lv68, zell lv58,and irvine lv39(i think).
Hope this helps you in the place where you need to train people.
I wonder whether can I call this a cheat or something like that.the second time when you visit esthar,talk to laguna and he will tell you the past that he did and how he became the president of esthar.
Halfway through the story,you will see soceress adel,(you will fight her later) getting sealed by laguna and how he tricked her (adel) into coming inside the place where rinoa was frozen and tricked adel by freezing her and and sent her to the moon.
PS:you can do this only ONCE!
Here's a hint to get loads of exp. First you will need to teach your party status attack (Doomtrain and Siren or get the siren card and refine it)then get 100 death spells for each charactor (refine chef's knifes stolen from tonberries to get 30) then junctoin the spells to st/att. Now fly to the island closest to hell (far left of the map) extremely strong monsters dwell here.
Next only fight Blue dragons,Grendels and T-rexaurs run from all the others you should be able to defeat these monsters with only one or two hits and will level up after almost every battle.
You may have all defeated Diablos.... But I'll tell you an easeier way.
It is possible to defeat him at LV:15.
First junction Curaga for HP and then Water or Tornado to strength on Squall.Lv:15
Then on anyone Curaga and anything that will increase magic on the rest of the party.
Then use Squall's limit break.
And cast Demi 2 times at once with double.
And cure Squall when his HP.
Then you might defeat him.
I hope I helped any starters out there!
To do this cheat you will need GF Carbunkle and atleast 4 Tents.
1. Make GF Carbunkle learn the ability - RECOV MED-RF
and use the ability to swap 4 tents to 1 mega-potion.
2. Then go to the nearest item shop and sell the mega-potion for - 5000.
3. Then buy 4 more tents for 4000.
4. Keep doing all of the above for as many times as you want and soon you will realize that each time you are gaining a 1000.
* Tip * Remember that you dont just have to keep buying 4 tents. If you have enough money you can buy 8 tents and sell 2 mega-potions Etc... Etc...
What magic I recommend to use in the battle is Regen, Shell, Curaga, and of course Aura (Limit Breaks)....use them on your three strongest characters you have and you should be OK.
You can actually get all the items to make the lionheart on the 1st disc (the Squall ultimate sword)!
here they are:
Adamantine - Minotaur card
Dragons Fangs - T-rexuas between 20-29
Then get 20 Elnoyle cards and change those into 2 energy crystals and then change the 2 crystals into 20 pulse ammo.
Ok first off this can only be done once in FH when you doing that festival thingy ok fist off if you pick the guitar,violin,flute,and the tap then when rinoa goes to talk to you squall will act more nice and he says that he'll try and let every body know how he feels but if you pick the sax,electric guitar piano,and the bass guitar then squall will act selfish and mean.if you've never given it a try then do so it's funny.
Ok first cast the spell zombie on a monster that isnt undead then simply use a very powerful healing spell or item such as phoenix down or the ability recover and revive once you cast or use that then the monster will be dead almost instantly,but this trick probly wont work on bosses
Ok, first off before you go and do anything be sure that your ready to fight him his weak elements are earth and water so use those when the chance comes.
Now for the box trick for the first step close the box to the far right and then close the box to the far left then close the box next to the one thats furthest right, then open the box next to that one and there you have it all the boxs are open if they arn't then try again !
