Look for UFOs to pass by during a battle in the following places (you must have Diablos' "Enc-None"):
1. Outside Winhill Town
2. Mandy Beach, northeast of Timber
3. Heath Peninsula, east of Trabia Garden
4. Kashkabald Desert.
After sighting all four, fly the Ragnarok to the rocky cliffs above the Chocobo Shrine. Encounter a UFO and defeat it. Then, head to the crater where Balamb Garden used to be. You will encounter a PuPu. Feed him five elixirs and you will be rewarded. Its only a level 5 card, but is definitely the hardest card to find.
How feat Ultimecia
First Ultimecia will choose the party that will fight her, you must have a favorite party that may be at level 100 so don't worry because when the weakers are gone the strongests come in. For make it easily you must have Bahamut's card and with card mod ability make it 100 megalixir that will give you full health to all your party, You must also have the Lionheart for Squall, junction 100 ultimas to str to Suall, when you do that every hit that you will do with the Lionhert will damage 9999 to Ultimecia. Cast aura on Squall and keep making his limit break and keep rechaging your party with megalixirs. Ultimecia will die easily
Get Cactuar GF
First before you try to get Cactuar you should be around level 60 and have the Levithian GF. You have to go to Cactuar Island which is in the southeast corner of the Esthar continent. You can distinguish it because of the big green Catuar that keeps appearing and disappearing on the island, this is the Jumbo Cactuar that you have to battle. You should equip the Revive and Recover Abilities on two different people because the Jumbo Cactuar uses the 10,000 needles ability which can wipe out a character in a single shot. The third person should be able to cast Life or Full Life spells. Also the Jumbo Cactuar is weak against water so use Levithian. The Battle is all about patience because you have to keep reviving your characters and attacking at the same time plus the Jumbo Cactuar has 60,000 HP. Have one character act as a medic while the other two attack. After attacking the Jumbo Cactuar for a while a little sign will appear saying that the Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating. Stop all your attacks at this point because he may runaway. Just use Levithian and your strongest attacks to finish him off before you! Stop. After you beat him you got the Cactuar GF. This is one of the best GFs in the game. When it's at level 100 he can do 10,000 points of damage and you will never have to boost, ever!
The easiest way to beat ANY boss/enemy!
Have Selphie in your team and make sure she has low health. Then in a battle, activate her Limit Break, but then open the console's disk drive while doing this. The battle should freeze but the choices for Selphie should still be working. Scroll through untill you highlight "The End" Press X and then close the disk drive. The battle should unfreeze and then Selphie should use her limit break. Battle over! NB: This even works with the Omega Weapon and Ultimecia, but I would advise that you have Heros/Holy War Trials/Holy Wars for guaranteed victory.
Rarest card in the game
There is a card in final fantasy 8 that is not mentioned on this site. The PuPu card. It sounds silly but its true. If u look at your cards screen then there will be a gap at the level 5 monster cards. This is because the pupu card is the rarest and hardest to find. To find this card you must have the encounternone ability which you learn from GF Diablos and the Ragnarok. THen fly the ragnarok to Winhill and just outside it try and get a battle using the encnone ability. Shortly you should have a battle but not an ordinary one. In this battle you will see a u.f.o flying around carrying a cow. This is the first u.f.o sighting. After this do the same at: Heath Peninsula, Island closest to Heaven, and the north snow fields. After the 4 sightings fly to balamb garden(the crater where it was) and get a battle. You should fight a little geen monster who asks for 5 potions. Give them to him and he will reward you with the pupu card. This is very valuable. (sent by magani)
Get to level 43 or higher and draw or refine an item into 100 Curaga. Do not level up. Instead Junction 100 Curaga to HP. If you are not at 9999 HP, put on HP +20%, HP +40%, or HP +80 %.
