Ffx2 how to use trap pods

Large trap pods? (spoilers)

Hi guys,

I am trying to capture Azi Dahaka but the game will not give me a Large Trap Pod.
I am level 99 so I am unable to gain pods from fiend tales.

I am only getting SP, S and M pods. I am assuming Azi Dahaka is not obtainable via the SP pod because Sacred Beast is not a category.

Is there another way to get the L Pods or am I pretty much out of luck at this point? I have played 115 tournaments with no luck.

I think I had to win Tournaments for a shot at large trap pods, but my memory is a bit fuzzy on that one. I had the same problem; there is a way, I just can't recall clearly.

Yeah, I'm at 135 tournaments and counting and am not getting any L Trap Pods. Anyone have any idea? This is so annoying.

look at here for the pod chance (the aeon cup is the best for L pod farm imo) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nNcskPtZenOcDmjw0Pyj7GZFL774EKmdhr0VpRieb4c/edit#gid=16

So, there's a L-size restriction. i'm not sure it is applied to the pod too. but just in case, http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=KndWwRxP
and also, next time don't level up to 99, or even the 90s. theres just no reason for it and its counterproductive

Thank you goodknife. I was trying to capture all of the aeon monsters for my next playthrough so I can easily level them and release them. I already completed Flame Dragon so I released him to turn him into Ifrit. I have all but Azi Dahaka. I guess this could be a reason why I am not getting the L Pods?
The first link with the pod chance is not working- says I need permission to access this link.

bville- Yeah, I didn't mean to honestly. I did the via infinto twice to get all the oversouls so it kind of just happened. :(

i guess so. since majority of aeon creature are L-size (from L-size restriction if you have 4 or more L-size creature on your team, you will not be able to get L-pod or catch any L-size creature anymore) need to release some and you should be fine (look at the pastbin link).

Thanks. So I guess I need to start a new game and get Azi Dahaka in the new game in order to get the Aeon Cup. Do I have to get all the way to him in the main story and win in order to unlock him for trapping? I cannot release anyone yet bc I need to level them up in NG + to get them to unlock the aeon cup.


EDIT: After looking at the pastebin-- I only have one of the monsters listed (Critical Bug). The rest aren't on there.

I have:

1. Critical Bug
2. Mushroom Cloud
3. Aranea
4. Jumbo Cactaur
5. Flan Blanco
6. Mycotoxin
7. Machina Striker
8. Cactaur

you have 3

1. Critical Bug 1
2. Mushroom Cloud
3. Aranea 2
4. Jumbo Cactaur 3
5. Flan Blanco
6. Mycotoxin
7. Machina Striker
8. Cactaur

all L size creature except: Chac, Flame Dragon, Zalamander, Claret Dragon, Sahagin Chief, Stalwart, Ironside, Malboro Great, Malboro, Admmantoise, Adamantortoise, Shell Shocker, Concherer, Guardian Beast, Azi Dahaka, Ultima Weapon, Omega Weapon, Paragon


edit: mistake>.>

hmm i'm not sure what else counted. but release critical bug or aranea or jumbo cactuar should help
Whoops .. totally missed that word .. "except" lol.

Thanks. I'll just go through the game again and get Azi Dahaka I guess. Unless I release one, get Azi Dahaka and then get the one I released back? What do you think is the best way so I can get them all now? I kind of feel like this would be the smartest way.
