Question for Final Fantasy VII

This has been buggin me for the last year or so. I've beat the game already. But I thought I build up my characthers and master all me materia but I have one problem with me enemy skill. I have all but one and i've gone through the whole game a million times now. So if theres anyone who can help me please let me know asap. also I have another quesion about chocobo racing has anyone had any luck getting their chocobo up over 180km's in S class cause it doesn't seem right that theioh can be that high and yet even the gold chocobos I can't get up past 180km I know it's still fast but not fast enough. So if someone can get back to me on this that would be great. Thanks.

Well youre gold chocobo can never have higher stats than theio black chocobo,he may have more stamina speed etc,but however don't pay any attention to that youre chocobo is still the best.And about the enemy skill well I mostly know that most of the skills you get them at the north crater,the cave where you fight sephiroth.

Mp Cost - 5mp
Can learn from - Touch me [Gongaga area], Toxic frog [Temple of the Ancients],
And Christopher [Crater]

L4 Suicide:

Effect - Causes critical damage to enemies with level divisible by four. May
Also cause 'mini' status as well.

A net loss of 3mp. Somewhat timely if being used to remove enemy MPs.

Status will be removed in that casting.

A materia slot. If you have a lot of life, you can heal your party far cheaper
This way than with the standard cure spells, besides, it changes a large amount
