Summoning AeonsAfter Yuna
has entered a temple and received the blessing of the fayth, the
aeon may be summoned in battle. The summoner must pass through a
Cloister of Trails to reach the chamber of fayth. An aeon can packs
devastating attacks, along with the ability to use magic, and the
strength of their overdrive is simply amazing.Other Aeon
CommandsBy pressing right on the directional pad when a
aeon is in battle, you can access a sub menu with more
commands the aeon can perform. The commands are, shield, boost, and
dismiss.Shield causes the aeon to defend itself on the
upcoming enemy attack. Therefore greatly reducing the amount of
magic and physical damage taken on the next turn. However the aeons'
overdrive gauge will not rise at all.Boost causes the aeon
to lower it's defense causing it to take more damage on the next
attack(s). However the overdrive gauge fills twice as
fast.Dismiss sends the aeon away. The party will then come
back and fight.Aeon AbilitiesOnce you have
received the item, "Summoner's Soul," you can use items to teach
aeons new abilities such as stronger spells, white magic, black
magic, and new abilities that the characters can also learn. You
cannot teach abilities to Yojimbo, and The Magus
Sisters. Aeon AttributesAfter Yuna defeats
Belgemine, she will receive the item, "Aeon's Soul." With this item
you can increase aeons' attributes by using spheres. You can
increase, HP, MP, Strength, Defense, Magic, Magic Defense, Agility,
Luck, Evasion, and Accuracy. The number of spheres needed to raise
one of the attributes depend on how high the attributes on the aeon
