I am at the last boss Jecht in FFX HD right now and can't beat him. I have tried to go get Anima, but I didn't get the destruction sphere in besaid temple and now I have to fight Dark Valefore to get back in but he kills every character in one hit. I tried getting the celestrial weapon for Tidus, but I didn't get the item in the Zanarkand dome so now I have to fight Dark Bahamut who also kills everyone in one hit. Back in the day on ps2 I had no trouble getting Anima since the Dark Aeons weren't originally in the US version so I never had this problem. My plan now is to level up more so Tidus has blitz ace, Lulu has flare, Wakka gets more strength and Yuna has more MP to casts more Holy's in the battle and hopefully their HP and stats will be high enough. Is there any easier way though or am I forced to grind for a while?

I can't get Yuna's since I need Anima and I can't get Anima. If I want Wakka's I am going to have to play a buttload of blitz ball games which doesn't sound very fun. Auron seems like his weapon isn't too hard though.

You don't need the celestial weapons to kill him, though of course they help. Kimari's is very easy to get. Lulu's is easy for some people, but hard for others. Rikku's is easy, though having a no encounters weapon/armor makes it go a lot faster. You can get Auron's easy enough, just takes a little time.

@toddx77: My little brother played this one back in the day and remarked how the final boss was ridiculously easy. I recall past and more recent games having tougher bosses. This is one of the few I didn't play much, but I doubt my little brother had all the character with their best weapons. You may have to grind.

@toddx77:

You aren't at the last boss ... and in between the battle again Sin ( like in between the moment you beat his wings and the moment you go infront of him on the flying ship ) you can go back into each temple otherwise I'm not sure you have that opportunity. And yes it is way easier to beat Jaect with Anima or almost single shot him with Tidus last overdrive with his ultimate weapon. Even then, you better not depend on Yuna's summons ... just saying

Also, you can trick the game a little ... what I mean is if you go after the ultimate weapon for each caracters ( they aren't hard outside of Tidus ) they all have incredible habilities like for Auron he gets first strike no matter if the ennemies get first strike ... so you can use that at you advantages by having him in your groupe and swich him to someone else that could kill the monster one shot before it could attack ...

Can't you just use Zanmato?

Valefor is pretty easy compared to the others ones

No, you're not screwed. You may need to grind a bit in Omega Ruins, but I recommend farming One Eye in the Monster Arena for Triple AP weapons, then farm Don Tonberry in the Monster Arena. If you have a Triple AP + Triple Overdrive + Overdrive -> AP setup, you can max out your sphere moves in one battle. Having the requisite gear for that trick, however, is the rub. The items needed for customization are a pain to obtain.

The only Dark Aeon who really gave me any kind of headache was Dark Anima - Bahamut can be cheesed by counterattacking so he never fires off Mega Flare. And every Dark Aeon can be cheesed by just paying off Yojimbo to Zanmato their asses. Even Penance can be KO'd in that manner.

I kind of did this. I kept grinding in the omega ruins for like 2 days and moved about 40-45 spaces on the sphere grid for Tidus, Auron, and Yuna with Lulu moving about 35 spaces. A mob dropped a half MP rod for Yuna and with that and Yuna knowing double cast and flare it was enough to finish the game.
