Final Fantasy X HD Remaster Walkthrough

Aeons

Aeons are divine creatures that only answer the call of a true summoner. The only playable summoner in Final Fantasy X is Yuna. Each Aeon has unique powers and characteristics that will grow as Yuna does, and as new items are acquired.

Once an Aeon is summoned, all other party members leave the battle field. Only the Aeon will battle until the battle ends, the Aeon is defeated, or the Aeon is withdrawn. Aeons can use unique attacks, common skills or spells, and even have their own overdrive!

Other Aeon commands include Shield and Boost. Press Right on the D-Pad to see these subcommands along with Dismiss, which will withdraw the Aeon from battle. Shield will allow the Aeon to take only 1/4th damage from attacks until the Aeon’s next turn, but their Overdrive gauge will not fill up. Boost causes the Aeon to receive more damage, but will charge the Overdrive gauge by 2x.

Additional abilities can be taught to an Aeon when the Summoner’s Soul key item is obtained in the Moonflow. Use various items to teach Aeons new abilities.

An Aeon’s attributes (HP, MP, Strength, Defense, Magic, Magic Defense, Agility, Luck, Evasion, and Accuracy) can be increased once the Aeon’s Soul key item is obtained in the Calm Lands. The same spheres used on the Sphere Grid can be used to increase an Aeon’s attributes.

There are a total of eight Aeons available in Final Fantasy X. Many of them are obtained automatically as you progress through the story, but some require special measures to acquire.

Valefor

Valefor is the very first available Aeon in Final Fantasy X. It is obtained after completing the Cloister of Trials in the Besaid Temple. This Aeon has high accuracy and various non-elemental attacks.

The unique attack exclusive to Valefor is Sonic Wings. This is a non-elemental attack that damages one enemy and delays their next turn.

Valefors Overdrive is the Energy Ray. This is a non-elemental beam attack that hits all fiends in battle.

A second Overdrive attack can be obtained later in the game. Return to Besaid and talk with the little girl with a dog near the Besaid Temple. She will give you an item that allows Valefor to use the Energy Blast attack. This is a non-elemental attack that does more damage than the Energy Ray, but requires more recovery time.

Obtain and power up Yuna’s Celestial Weapon, Nirvana, to increase Valefor’s damage limit beyond 9999.

Ifrit

Ifrit is the second available Aeon in Final Fantasy X. It is obtained after completing the Cloister of Trials in the Kilika Temple. This Aeon has high Strength, but its Defense and Magic Defense are really low. Ifrit is a fire Aeon, which means it can regain HP by casting fire spells on itself!

The unique attack exclusive to Ifrit is Meteor Strike. This is a non-elemental long-range attack that damages one enemy, but has a longer recovery time compared to a regular attack. It can even penetrate Protect spells!

Ifrit’s Overdrive is Hellfire. This is a fire-based attack that damages all enemies on the field.

Obtain and power up Wakka’s Celestial Weapon, World Champion, to increase Ifrit’s damage limit beyond 9999.

Yojimbo

Yojimbo is an optional Aeon found in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth, which is beneath the bridge at the northeast end of the Calm Lands. Defeat Yojimbo in battle, then speak to him to recruit him. You will need to negotiate a price in order to get him onto your team. Try the following:

  • 125,001 Gil
  • 125,003 Gil
  • 165,003 Gil
  • 197,000 Gil

If you offer three times the amount (591,000), Yojimbo will give you two Teleport Spheres in addition to joining your party.

Unlike the other Aeons, you cannot select attacks for Yojimbo. Give him Gil and he will use a variety of attacks on his own.

Obtain and power up Auron’s Celestial Weapon, Masamune, to increase Yojimbo’s damage limit beyond 9999.

The Magus Sisters

The Magus Sisters are optional Aeons found in the Remiem Temple in the Calm Lands. This temple can be found after obtaining the Airship and gaining the ability to ride a Chocobo. You will then need to complete a few objectives:
