Holy crap. I'm at the part where you fight Seymour, and I can't do it. At first I was really confused, and I couldn't even beat his guards, but eventually, I did. Now, that aeon he has. Holy crap. I don't know how to beat it! Is there an easier way? ( fyi: I have no potions left, and I don't have any ability spheres to teach them new moves. I am in a pickle...)

Well, I'm pretty sure youre talking about when youre in maca lania, right?If so, I believe that you have to steal from the guards to take away their ability to use those hi-potions whenever they want.them yu kill them with attacks.For the aeon, cast blizzard/blizzara on your new aeon Shiva when you are about to die. After having Anima attack you so many times, you'll eventually get Shivas overdrive,it takes out alot!!!Repeat this until Anima gets dismissed.Seymour will instantly kill any aeons so yu should dismiss Shiva quickly and not use any others unless they have overdrives ready. Seymour is pretty hard even by himslf.You can poison him with Lulu if she has Bio.And since seymour kills you easily with lotsa magic, you should have yuna by you so she can heal you.You should also have tidus cast haste on her.Auron should use magic break so SEymour will have weaker magic.Aftter hat,you pretty much just take out as much damage as possible.i hope this helped you and good luck.

Why not ask the FFX expert, me?

There are two Guado Guardians in this battle. They each have the Auto-Potion ability. So, the easiest way to eliminate them would be to first, steal their potions, and then second, attack them with physical attacks. Since you take the potion from these two enemies, they will not have the ability to heal themselves after every time you attack them.

That takes care of the easy part, leaving Seymour alone, but not for long. He summons Anima, a huge beast which looks near impossible to defeat. However, this is easier than you first think. After a few turns of Anima being summoned, look in Yuna's Summon menu. There will be a new, unnamed aeon: summon her. This brings about Shiva. While Anima boosts himself to raise his Overdrive, and attacks with Pain, have Shiva cast Blizzara on herself repeatedly to keep her HP level high. Also, by attacking herself, this raises Shiva's Overdrive, so you are killing two birds with one stone. When her Overdrive maximizes, have Shiva cast Diamond Dust. This special attack will deal 9999 HP damage to Anima. After you hit Anima with Diamond Dust for the first time, just repeat the same process again. Cast Blizzara on Shiva, maximize her Overdrive, and cast it on Anima. This will defeat Anima with ease.

After you have taken Anima out of the battle, immediately dismiss Shiva the next opportunity you get to do so. <B> Do not </B> summon anymore aeons during this fight, because Seymour will destroy them!

Seymour begins his attacks by casting multi-spells at each party member. It would be a good idea to keep Yuna in your party at all times, as her Life ability will come as great help to you. It is a little difficult to keep characters alive in the late stage of this battle, so I strongly suggest you cast Haste on Yuna as soon as possible. Then, have Lulu cast Bio on Seymour, to poison him. After that, have Auron attack with Magic Break.

After you complete all this, the rest of the battle will be easy.

What I did was using Reflec.
Seymour always attacked with his Multi-spells and got hit himself.
It was a veeery nice fight. No worries! XD

Or use Null-magic spells. They do work as well although you�ll have to recast them.

For Anima... well... O_o I defeated it with... luck... timing and healing my party.

Okay, I'm at school right now, so I'm gonna print out this page. The only thing is, I don't have Bio or Blizzera. I don't have ANY ability spheres, and I can't find any. (I know you get them in battles, but I haven't had much luck) Plus, I have no potions, other than the ones I'll steal from the guards. I'll try what you said Smokey, and I'll fill you in on the results.

Wow, you don't have many items yet do you? If you don't, then you should just run around for a while, fight enemies, earn gil, and learn new abilities on the sphere grid. From what you have told me, it may be difficult for you to win this battle, since you are very low on supplies. So, just go out there and get more.

Okay, I found O'aka and bought some high potions. But I still don't have any Ability spheres, and I can't seem to get any.

Ok, try this then:

Go back to Lake Macalania, and try to find these two enemies; Chimera, and Xiphos. These guys drop ability spears when you defeat them. That's one way to find some.

Another is to buy some Ability Distillers from O'aka. Then, just use one on each enemy in a battle, and you will earn some Ability Spheres that way.

That should help you out a lot.

this guy took me a while too. so if you're lucky enough to have yuna or ifrit in overdrive use it it kills all the guards and makes seymour summon anima and by now the brotherhood shood have waterstrike and use lulu with watera or water er sumthin then when seymour dismisses anima you better have all the nuls (nulshock nultide nulblaze and nulfrost) i think he uses ice 1st so use nulfrost then the next and so on bla bla and keep attacking him. I had to start ova cuz i didnt have required spells but this works for me i killed him a coupla times really easily

I killed his guards a first. Then I attacked Seymour �till he summoned Anima. Usually I let my Yuna summon Ifrit (when he was on his limit) to kill Anima. Was he still alive, I called him back, if not .....well.....

The funny part about this is when Semour says: I must have this new aeon...... (and I had used Ifrit instead of Shiva);)

Then at the end I used the ex-magics (ex-water, ex-fire....), so Seymour couldn�t hit me too hard with his magical spells. One person had to hit him with his weapon and the other person had to heal my group. After a few rounds Seymour was dead then. :)

You need to train your characters alot more. The thunder plains are an excellent place to do this, as you can also try to dodge lightning bolts. (By dodging many in a row you can pick up prizes at the treasure chest outside the little hut in the thunder plains. If you dodge 200 consecutive bolts, you get Lulu's best weapon. If you leave the thunder plains area or save, then the counter goes back to zero, so you have to really focus when going for two hundred. However, there are prizes for 10, 20, 50, and 100 dodges as well) If you use Yuna, Lulu, and Tidus, it will be easy to train in the Thunder Plains or Macalania woods. Simply use Yuna to cast the appropriate Nul magic (NulShock for the lightning monsters, NulTide for the water monsters) then use Lulu to hit them with whatever elemental magic that they are vulnerable to. (water is good against lightning, vice versa, and fire is good against ice, vice versa) Keep Tidus around so he gains AP, as he will be one of the most helpful characters in the whole game. Set his OD mode to Slayer Warrior and use his OD as soon as it fills. Once you feel you have leveled up enough, go fight Seymour. Hey should be a cinch. I beat him with just a few normal attacks from Tidus, which did 6000+ each - i didn't have to summon or heal, and none of my characters died. Try to use Tidus's overdrive as much as possible, so he can use slice and dice and energy rain to kill the two servants as well as damage seymour in one go. Train, train, train.

Note: the long road leading up the Seymour during the second time you fight him (is it called the Highbridge?) is a super excellent place to train. The robot monsters give you tons of AP, and you can often pick up Mega Pheonixes. A good idea is to train there untilo you have collected 20 mega pheonixes. you can use them to customise the ability Auto Pheonix in the customization menu, which is very good. By the time you collect 20 mega pheonixes there, you should be more then strong enough to kick seymours ass once again. Good Luck! P.S. keep using Tidus's overdrive, with OD mode Slayer or Warrior!

I see alot of people refer to Anima as a he, but I like to say that Anima is a she.

06-19-2004, 06:18 AM
**SPOILER** <-- like it helps anymore...

So many people say anima is seymours mom, yet like, 2 posts later people are still confused.

Yes, Anima is a "she", but sometimes hard to believe. And if you don�t think about it and whrite about Anima it happens that "she" turns into a "he". I do that too, because I don�t think at this moment. Just ignor it. ;)
