Final Fantasy X: Cheaper Yojimbo hint:
To obtain Yojimbo at a discount price of 194,000 Gil rather than the usual 250,000 Gil, first save your progress so that you can start fresh if you need to. Visit the Chamber of Fayth and answer "To defeat the most powerful of enemies" when Fayth asks what you seek. Suggest 125,001 Gil as the price instead. This will lower the actual asking price to 225,000 Gil, at which point you should suggest a new offer of 125,002. The new offer you'll receive is 205,000 Gil. Raise your own offer yet again, this time to 150,003, and the new asking price becomes 194,000. That's as low as the price can go using this process. If you try to make a low offer again, the transaction process ends.
