I just started up Final Fantasy X again, I finished it a few years ago. Unless I'm thinking about a different game, I missed an item or items that where important for getting the best weapons(?) and it was past the part where I could get them.

I am right that there are some items that can be missed that you can't ever go back and get? If so, what are they?

Here's a list of all permanently missable items in the game.

  • a no encounter weapon, as an equipment drop from Geosgaeno.
  • a magic counter buckler, from the hovercraft merchant in the Calm Lands.
  • the 0-Slotted Longsword can't be bought after a certain point.
  • Master Spheres are limited in quantity.
  • the four Al Bhed Primers from 19 till 22 are (technically) missable.

Also, certain non-items are also permanantly missable.

  • Having Wantz in Macalania Woods selling 4 slot equipment
  • You can't recruit Durren for your Blitz team anymore after a certain point.

For more information, there is a FAQ on GameFAQs giving detailed information for all of these items

Don't know if this counts as an item? But you can only win that Blitzball game once? (The first tournament, which is compulsory to play). If you win you get a trophy – jumping_code Jul 9 '12 at 16:37

The only thing I can think of is the part of Tidus' ultimate weapon. You can still get it later but the entrance to where the chest is is guarded by the Dark Aeon which is quite difficult to beat.

Very after the fact, but it's worth pointing out that not every release of the game has the Dark Aeons in it. (Most notably for a good chunk of the audience of this site, the only version released in the US doesn't have them.) – Shinrai May 3 '11 at 22:46

If you somehow miss the destructions sphere item in Bevelle, you can never go back and thus never get Anima. Can't remember if you can't get magus sisters without anima or not. I believe you can also miss getting the jecht shot but I'm not sure on this...

Yes, the Jecht Shot is missable. If you either don't go up to the ball on the deck to start the mini-sequence, or if you start it but fail for some reason (I have done both), you will miss out on the Jecht Shot. I do believe you can get Jecht Shot 2 regardless, though. – Adam Jensen Aug 4 '14 at 3:16
This is not true. There are two items in the Bevelle temple, and one of them (a sphere) is absolutely required to get before you can finish it. The other item, a lance, is not mandatory, but not getting it will still let you get Anima and the Magus Sisters. – Devon Parsons Sep 30 '14 at 19:57

One thing that jumps to my mind is one of Wakka's weapon (TurnOver is the name I believe?) which is the earliest item in the game to have Evade & Counter.

After you defeat Isharu with Yuna in Via Purifico, you will control Wakka's team, the weapon will be in a chest.
