  3. Has anybody here ever softlocked FFX-2 by being underleveled against enemies?

And if so, is there any way around this? I got the idea from here:

https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnwinnableByInsanity

Final Fantasy X-2: Once you pass a certain point in the story, all of the enemies in the world will have been elevated to at least mid levels. If you avoid as much experience as possible throughout the game while also skipping all side events, it is possible to reach a state in which even basic enemies are undefeatable.

It's impossible since you get AP from using skills, you have the ability to escape, and there are savespheres everywhere which let you go back to the airship. We're also ignoring the fiend arena which guarantees easy progress. Thief, Warrior, White Mage, Black Mage, and Songstress is also enough to at least beat some random monsters in chapter 5 for exp even as a lvl 1 party. You have steal/nab gil, you have accessories you can buy/find from many places. There's never going to be a situation where you can't grind out your rough situation, so you can't "ruin" your file.

you can also just slap on the charm bangle you got from chapter 2 and skip all encounters except the bosses, who generally have strategies around them, are optional (Angra Mainyu) or are outright avoidable (Azi Dahaka)

Thanks to this games NG+ feature, its impossible to truly get softlocked. You can just speedrun thru the game, carryover the materials that can really help, and blast through new game plus with even better resources and steamroll random encounters. Try to make it to at least stage 40 of Via Infinito for the prizes in the chest, and make sure you obtain a Key to Success (Double EXP among other things) on your first playthrough. Those you can get without any difficulty as the latter is a reward based on your storyline choices and the former only requires you beat one tough boss and no difficult random encounters yet.

It always makes me wonder when people post wrong info like that. Like, are they simply drawing the wrong conclusion from an actual experience they had? Or are they just talking out their ass for the sake of posting something.

Surely this. I've seen a lot of it around TvTropes. Lots of stuff that barely belongs, or doesn't belong at all.

I can't think of any way someone could get stuck like this.
