Note: The Wutai Pagoda quest can always be done, even on Disc 3. You obviously must have recruited Yuffie, however.

Have Yuffie in your party and go to the Wutai Pagoda. Here, she must face several opponents in order to climb the Pagoda and attain the power of the Water God. Or something like that. Simple said, it's time for a boss fight.

.------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|Name: Gorki (Level: 30)                   |Nullifies: Earth, Gravity          |
|HP: 3000                                  |Weakness: Wind                     |
|MP: 150                                   |-----------------------------------|
|Exp: 1500                                 |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|AP: 50                                    |Poison, Stop, Slow, Paralyzed,     |
|Gil: 0                                    |Darkness                           |
|Drops: X-Potion(100%)                     |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Barrier [1 Ally, Mag Atk, Cost=16MP, Inflicts 100% Barrier]; Regen [1|
|Ally, Mag Atk, Cost=30MP, Inflicts 100% Regen]; Reflect [1 Enemy, Mag Atk,    |
|Cost=30MP, Inflicts 100% Reflect]; Demi2 [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=33MP, Gravity|
|Element, Damage=Target's HP/2]; Dive Kick [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Damage = MaxHP/4]|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|Strategy: This can actually be a pretty tough fight. Start the battle with    |
|Haste (or Big Guard for Haste). His damaging attacks are all based on your HP |
|and can't really be defended from, except for Demi which you could counter by |
|Elemental-Gravity in your Armor. Deplete his MP with Magic Hammer immediately |
|so he can't cast Regen and Reflect, making the battle harder than it has to   |
|be. His Magic Defense is really high, so even your stronger attacks won't be  |
|as powerful. Still, Odin, Beta and Aqualung do decent damage, along with Limit|
|Breaks. Keep your HP up, and you'll win.                                      |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

And up to the second floor we go. Here you'll face Shake. Heal up first.

.------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|Name: Shake (Level: 32)                   |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 4000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 180                                   |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 2200                                 |Poison, Stop, Slow, Paralyzed,     |
|AP: 50                                    |Darkness                           |
|Gil: 0                                    |                                   |
|Drops: Turbo Ether(100%)                  |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Beak [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 284 Base Damage]; Rage Bomber [1 Enemy, Phys|
|Atk, 710 Base Damage, Can inflict Fury, Used as Counter Attack]               |
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|Strategy: An easy fight. Open with Big Guard, then make sure you keep your    |
|Barrier up. His Rage Bomber hits hard as a Counter Attack, so heal after it.  |
|Otherwise, just kick his ass with hard hitting spells and summons.            |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Now you're going to face Checkov on the third floor. Don't forget to heal. Also equip Yuffie with the Jem Ring, to prevent getting paralyzed.

.------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|Name: Checkov (Level: 34)                 |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 5000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 210                                   |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 1500                                 |Poison, Stop, Slow, Paralyzed,     |
|AP: 50                                    |Darkness                           |
|Gil: 0                                    |                                   |
|Drops: Ice Ring(100%)                     |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Absorb [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 296 Base Damage]; Stare Down [1 Enemy,    |
|Mag Atk, Cost=5MP, Causes 100% Paralyzed]                                     |
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|Strategy: The Jem Ring takes care of Stare Down, so all you need to do is get |
|his HP down. This can be annoying due to his Absorb attack that keeps draining|
|your HP. Put Big Guard up as usual, and pound away. Poisoning him helps       |
|somewhat too, as does slowing or stopping him (if you can already).           |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Next is Staniv, on the fourth floor..heal up first.

.------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|Name: Staniv (Level: 36)                  |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 6000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 240                                   |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 3600                                 |Poison, Stop, Slow, Paralyzed,     |
|AP: 50                                    |Darkness                           |
|Gil: 0                                    |                                   |
|Drops: Elixir(100%)                       |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Ironball [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 385 Base Damage]; Iron Attack [1 Enemy, |
|Phys Atk, 770 Base Damage, Used as Counter Attack]; War Cry [1 Enemy, Mag Atk,|
|Cost=4MP, Causes 100% Sadness]                                                |
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|Strategy: *Laughs* Geez, this guy is your bitch, seriously what is this wussy |
|doing all the way up the fourth floor? Him and Gorki should change places or  |
|something. All he does is use a physical attack, so keep up Big Guard and kill|
|him off.                                                                      |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

The last boss is Godo.. Yuffie's father. He starts the battle right away, so come prepared.

(Perfect Game Note 15:)
You'll probably want to wait with beating Godo until you've got all 4 Enemy Skill Materia's. That way, you can get Trine on the remaining one's that don't have it yet. Godo's the ONLY way to learn Trine on ALL Enemy Skill Materia's.  And for a perfect file, you'll need that.

.------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|Name: Godo (Level: 41)                    |Normal: Gravity                    |
|HP: 10000                                 |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 1000                                  |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 5000                                 |Poison, Stop, Slow, Darkness       |
|AP: 60                                    |                                   |
|Gil: 40000                                |                                   |
|Drops: All Creation(100%)                 |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Beast Sword [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 337 Base Damage]; Drain [1 Enemy,    |
|Mag Atk, 193.5 Base Damage]; Cure2 [1 Ally/Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=24MP, 1286    |
|Base Healing, Used as Counter Attack when under 40% of Max HP, Used on Yuffie |
|when she us under 20% of Max HP]; Trine [All Enemies, Mag Atk, Cost=20MP,     |
|Lightning Element, 1096.5 Base Damage]; Sleepel [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=8MP,  |
|Can inflict Sleep]; Mini [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=10MP, Can inflict Small];    |
|Bio2 [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=36MP, Poison Element, Can inflict Poison];       |
|Demi3; [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=48MP, Gravity Element, Damage = HP * 3/4]      |
|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|Strategy: Well, Godo has one major weakness, and that's gravity based attacks.|
|Go ahead and use Laser on him (or Demi). After a bunch of casts, finish him   |
|off with Beta or other strong attacks. Watch your HP though, and make sure you|
|cast Big Guard when things get rough. You can also poison him.                |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

For beating Godo you receive All Creation, Yuffie's final Limit Break, and the Leviathan Materia. For now, that's all there is to do in Wutai.

You can also learn Trine from Stilva in the cave past Gaea's cliff. If you want it for all four enemy-skill materia.
