Same here never thought it was hard enough that I would need to do something like this.I found the whole game kind of easy to be honest.

Hypothesis: A digital light sensor connected to an analog servo can out perform a human in the Lightning achievement challenge.
Control group: Unsuspecting humans forced to attempt this themselves using nothing but their weak thumbs.

Result: Hypothesis confirmed
Control group response: Control group unavailable due to their human form being reduced to a pure frothy mix of hatred and frustration energy.

There... now that's science.

I haven't played FFX since it came out on PS2, but I do remember that I was never able to dodge all of them. Didn't the game do this thing as well, where if you try using an auto-controller and hold down the "X" button, the game automatically makes the lightning strike Tidus?!

i got all the legendary weapons and beat all sidequests. this would have made it a little easier. the one i had a real tough time with was dodging the seagulls, i nearly lost my mind. lol

I remember doing this challenge oh so well. I always did it in sections of twenty cause it seemed less stressful lol. Dodge twenty times, pause the game to calm my nerves, dodge twenty more, rinse and repeat. Somehow counting to twenty 10 times was more doable than counting to 200 continuously. This was the most tedious part of the game, so I always just got it done asap.

I found get 0 exactly in the chocobo run a lot harder but I guess it's preference.

I put it on mute so every time I saw a flash I would click X and it be distracted by the other thunder sounds, made it a lot easier.
