Easy EXP in early game
When you defeat any of your three friends on the island one-on-one, you earn 1 EXP point. However, if you can tech an attack of theirs (attack at the same instant they attack), that feat alone is worth 2 EXP. Tidus' attack pattern especially is very predictable. When you see an attack coming, tech him, run a short distance away, tech him, etc repeatedly. By following this pattern, you vastly increase the rate you level up and get on with the game.
