                          |Getting the G.F.|
                           +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

This is where I will explain how to get each G.F.. I will use their 
DEFAULT NAMES throughout the faq.

G.F. LIST
    
    - Quezacotl     - Brothers          - Pandemona        - Bahamut
    
    - Shiva         - Diablos           - Alexander        - Cactuar
    
    - Ifrit         - Carbuncle         - Cerberus         - Tonberry
    
    - Siren         - Leviathan         - Doomtrain        - Eden

SEMI-G.F. List

    - Phoenix       Use a phoenix pinion during battle
    - Mini Mog      Learn ability with Mog's Amulet 
    - Chocobo       Use a Gysahl Green
    - Odin          Find at the Centra Ruins (see CENTRA RUINS in the 
                    SIDE QUESTS section) 
    - Gilgamesh     Receive if you have Odin when you fight Seifer on
                    Lunatic Pandora

THE G.F. I _ABSOLUTELY_ RECOMMEND YOU TO GET AND WHY, ALTHOUGH I HOPE 
YOU GET ALL OF THEM

- Carbuncle                 It's reflect casting abilities will help 
                            tremendously in some battles.

- Cerberus                  Double and Triple - All in one...need I say
                            more?

- Doomtrain                 Probably the best G.F. in the game, very 
                            high HP and casts almost EVERY status 
                            ailment on all enemies with high success.

- Eden                      The most damaging G.F. in the game, the 
                            only summon in all of FF history that can  
                            inflict five (yes, FIVE) digit damage (well
                            except for maybe Cactuar, but lets not talk
                            about him now). Let's see, at level 100 he
                            can do 11550 damage. Add SumMag + 40%,
                            then he does 23100 (remember, SumMag is 
                            cumulative). Now, add boost at max (250%),
                            and he can do 57750!

Note: As most of you probably can figure, !!! means the ability comes 
already learned.

   Access the study panel in the classroom on Balamb garden. Check the 
   tutorial to receive the G.F. It's attack, Thunder Storm, does 
   lightning damage. Nice abilities for this GF are: Card and Card Mod.
   These two abilities allow you to get cards and change them into just
   about any item you want. Also, its junction abilities are useful 
   this early in the game.

   Retrieve in the same area as Quezacotl. Shiva is a useful ice G.F., 
   and her Diamond Dust attack is traditional from other FF games. Her
   useful abilities are her Spr/Vit +, and her other junctions.

   It's the first boss, found in the fire cavern. He utilizes a fire 
   attack called Hell Fire. If your reading this, (experts should only) 
   you most likely got him already, but oh hell, here ya go. Oh, and
   by the way, his useful abilities are his Str abilities, and his 
   Ammo-RF.

It's really not that hard. Just make sure you have some GF junctioned, 
and use Shiva, Quezacotl, and Ice magic. If your trying to get the 
highest initial SeeD ranking, then I suggest that you get him to low HP 
(so that you could kill him with one _ATTACK_) and wait till about 20 
seconds are left. Then you attack him, and the battle should finish 
with less than 7 secs left.

   uses an attack called Silent Voice, which inflicts Silence (not

Of course, what you want to do first is draw Siren. The way to defeat 
this monster is just pound away with your strongest G.F. Eventually, he 
should be easily defeated. If he does the attack that hits all your 
characters for about 200-300 damage, then draw cast cure on your 
characters.

   They're located at the Tomb of the Unknown King. They have useful 
   HP + and HP-J abilities. There attack 'Brotherly Love' is one of the
   rare earth attacks which causes fairly large amounts of damage, but
   has a low ability to even hit many monsters.

This is a pretty easy battle. Just cast all of your G.F. once or twice 
in a row, and he will be quickly defeated. BTW - if you have the 
chance, stock up on his magic!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 
After this, you should go back one, go right, left, right, left, right, 
up. Here, activate the floodgate controls. Then, go back one, go right, 
left, right, left, right, up. Here, activate the drawbridge. Now, go 
back one, right, left, straight, left, straight. Here, you'll fight 
both of the brothers.

Twice the G.F., twice the challenge. This is not a very easy, nor very 
hard battle. Think...first of all, if you scan Minotaur, it says that 
it will be healed as long as its feet are _on the ground_ so, guess 
what will prevent his feet from touching the ground? Cast float on him 
and Sacred if this healing is starting to pester you. Basically, 
casting protect/shell on your characters will be a big help in the 
beginning of the battle. Your strongest G.F. and Tornado (draw from 
Thrustaevis outside, or mug windmills and convert them into tornadoes) 
are effective enough to attack them with. Eventually, the brothers will 
fall. My only caution is Minotaur's Mad Cow Special, which will hurt 
you pretty bad. Cast cura or curaga on your characters to recover from 
the attack.

   If you talk to Cid before going on to the Timber mission, he'll give 
   you a magic lamp. If you read its description, it says 'to save 
   before you use it!'. Well, save before you do, and then use it to 
   enter battle with Diablos. Diablos is one of the two only gravity 
   magics available for you to use. At first, he won't do very much,
   but as he gains levels, he can instantly kill enemies (under 9999 
   HP, that is). His level determines the percentage of HP an enemy has
   taken off. Useful abilities are the Enc-None, HP+, and Ability x3. 
   Mug is also an extremely useful ability.

As you can see, it would not be a very smart idea to fight him at later 
levels, as his statistics are at par with Ultima and even Omega weapon. 
I would fight him at a VERY low level, around 10-20 if possible. Even 
then, this is still a pretty hard level.

Diablos attack is very high. So, to counter this, cast blind. Also, 
cast slow on him. There is a catch...he is susceptible to Gravity 
attacks; just draw cast Demi on him until you can easily defeat him 
with other attacks.

Diablos attacks with Gravija, which knocks out 3/4 of your character's 
HP. At this point, you can either heal yourselves or blast away with 
limits. I would heal, and use the Demi strategy, but what you do is up 
to you. Good luck!

A really easy battle; draw Carbuncle, then try and stock up on some of 
it's magic. It doesn't really have attacks you need to worry about; if 
your HP gets too low, then draw cast cure to heal yourselves. After 
your finished with your business, use your G.F. to kill them almost 
immediately.

This is a pretty huge pod. I would recommend having at least two 
characters with draw. First of all, the real NORG is hidden behind the 
shell. If you can, try and mug the Mag Up and Spr Up from the 
right/left pods. It does take awhile. Unless you're really weak, the 
pods should not be a problem. If they cast a status effect on you, just 
cast Esuna (hoping that you have some in stock). If you don't, then 
you'll have to quickly destroy the pod. It isn't that hard. Just cast 
all your GFs to destroy it. After it is destroyed, NORG will be out.

NORG has Leviathan, so draw it. He also has draw available, so remember 
that too. Now, if you have the chance, mug him for his circlet. After 
this, you should be able to easily take care of it with your GF.

NOTE: Does anybody have info on his pod lights? You know, how if you 
hit them, it changes colors, and sometimes it doesn't attack depending 
on its color? Contribute please!

   You have to draw the GF from Raijin and Fujin, when you fight them 
   at Balamb city. Pandemona is the strongest wind attack in the game,
   and quite a few enemies are weak against the element. Useful 
   abilities he has are his Initiative, Spd +, and Str +.

This can be a fairly difficult battle. Raijin might come in right away 
and attack with his Raijin Special, which doe 700-1200 damage to a 
single character. This person will most likely almost immediately be 
killed, depending on his condition from the prior battle.

After getting healed up, I would recommend you take out Fujin (the 
woman) first. Use all your GF for a quicker kill, but avoid Quezacotl 
as he will heal Raijin. Draw Cast Cura throughout the battle to heal
up those who need it.

   To receive Cerberus, fight him at the Galbadia Garden lobby. He is
   probably one of the most useful GF; his 'Counter Rockets' cast 
   Double and Triple on all of you're characters. He has a VAST array 
   of useful abilities: Junctions for everything but Eva, HP, and Vit; 
   St-Def-Jx4, Ability x3, Auto-Haste, and of course his Spd +.

Cerberus isn't too hard of an enemy. Hopefully, you'll have a few 
dispels. If Cerberus casts triple on himself, cast dispel to counter 
it. This way, he won't be able to attack you, unless he uses his tail 
attack. Anyway, just blast away with all your GF and characters with 
high attacks, and he should fall very easily.

   You receive Alexander by drawing him from Edea when you fight her in 
   Galbadia garden. Alexander is the strongest of the two holy attacks
   in the game. He has one of the most useful skills in the game; 
   Revive. Revive casts full life on a character at no cost. His
   Med LV Up is a ability that is almost absolutely required at later
   side quests. He is one of the only GF that has Elem-Def-Jx4.

Defeat Seifer first. Defeat him the same way in which you did the last
battle with him. After this, Edea will be targetable. Make sure you 
draw Alexander (after all, what's the point of this strategy if you 
don't?). Edea has a powerful gravity attack called Maelstorm, which 
also casts curse on you at the same time. If she uses Maelstorm, draw
cast Esuna.

Carbuncle will not work on her. Still, you can blow her away with your 
other GF and limits. Diablos will work very well against her if he's at 
a high level. Still, she only has 16000 HP, and can easily be defeated 
with your GF.

   To get this GF, first you need a Solomon Ring. I would recommend you
   have the Ragnorok when you try this quest. Anyway, to get the ring,
   you need to go to Tears' Point a little east from Esthar. Go to the
   very central area and you should see it.
  
   Now, you need 6 of three items: 6 Malboro Tentacles, 6 Steel Pipes,
   6 Remedy +. To get the tentacles, go fight Malboros at the Great 
   Plains of Esthar (pops up VERY rarely) before the Lunar Cry. You
   can also fight them at the Island Closest to Hell/Heaven. Fighting
   the Malboros can be hell, since their Bad Breath attack inflicts 
   most status effects on you. To counter this, junction 100 Confuse,
   Sleep, and Berserk to you status Defense. Also, make sure you have
   Mug. Then, go into battle with the green thing, and mug the 
   tentacles and RUN!

   The steel pipes are found via fighting Wendigos (in barren area 
   outside of the Deling City) and mug it. To get the Remedy +, buy
   60 remedies and use Med LV up to change them into the remedy +.

   Doomtrain has one of the most useful GF attacks: Runaway Train. This
   inflicts almost every status effect on an enemy; basically, if 
   they're weak to any one, then it'll be inflicted. He also has BOTH
   Elem/St Def-Jx4 (!) and he has an auto-shell ability.
