Unlimited items:
Note: This trick requires a PocketStation, the North American version of the game, and a memory card. Download the Chocobo World game from Final Fantasy 8 onto your Pocketstation.

After obtaining the desired items, plug the Pocketstation and the memory card into the PlayStation. Enter the memory card manager and save Chocobo World to the memory card, which will occupy 7 blocks. Start playing your Final Fantasy 8 game with the file that you have caught a Chocobo with. Choose the option to take Boco (the character you play Chocobo World with) home. This also lets you transfer all the items you have collected in the Pocketstation game into the Final Fantasy 8 game. Then choose the option to send Boco into the Pocketstation game again. Go to the option on the Final Fantasy 8 game to see all the items that were transferred from the Pocketstation. Go to the memory card manager, and copy the Chocobo World files from the memory card back to into the Pocketstation. Repeat the steps that transfer the items to Final Fantasy 8. Note: You can do this to get 16 or more MiniMog abilities for all your G.F.s to use. Just find MiniMog inside the Pocketstation game and then just repeat the transferring cheat.

Get the Lionheart in Disc 1:
The items needed for the Lion Heart (Squalls best weapon) are 1 Adamantine, 4 Dragon Fangs, and 12 Pulse Ammo.. Get Quezecoatl's card mod and Ammo refine from Ifrit. Since most of the items you need to be powerful is in the cards, it is recommended that you keep playing it in Balamb. You need 20 Elnoyle cards for the 2 Energy Crystals (converted with Card mod). Then Ammo refine them to Pulse ammo. The Minotaur card for the Adamantine, and since you cannot get Dragon Fangs from cards, fight a T-Rexaur until you get at least four of them.

Before the Dollet field exam, level up your party to be between 20 and 30. When returning to Garden, keep fighting T-Rex until you get the 4 Dragon Fangs. The T-Rexes must be in level 30 (with Fira and Thundara). After leaving Timber, follow the railroad to get to Dollet. Go onto the beach and defeat some Adamantoises to get the Adamantine. Next, enter the forest and go into the "dream world". If your team is at level 30, you will fight the enemy Elastoise. You can Mug Laser Canons from him. He will also very rarely drop them. Use Ammo-RF on three Laser canons to get the Pulse Ammos. Be sure to learn "Mug" and "Ammo-RF" before you get here. Then, go to Timber's junk shop and buy the Lionheart.

Play cards to obtain ten Enoyle cards. These cards are extremely rare and are usually used by difficult players in the game. Defeat the Brothers GF in the Tomb of the Unknown King to obtain the Sacred and Minotaur cards. Use the Card Mod ability to turn the Sacred card into ten Adamantines. Mug the Laser Cannon item from the Belhelmels. This is extremely difficult to get, and will require multiple attempts. Mug six Dragon fangs from the Grendels or from the T-Rexaur (recommended when at about level 20). They also drop them after battle. Use the Card Mod ability to turn the ten Enoyle cards into an Energy crystal. Use the Ammo-RF ability to turn the Energy Crystal into ten Pulse Ammo, and the Laser Cannon into five Pulse Ammo. Level up to at least level 40 or higher. Go to the nearest city and remodel your weapon. You should now have the Lionheart weapon while still on Disc 1.

Get the Lionheart in Disc 2:
Adamantine can be acuired by stealing it from BGH251F2 with Mug ability or by using Card mod on the Minotaur's card. Dragon Fangs are dropped by Blue Dragons, and T-Rexaurs. Blue Dragons can be found in the Bika forests just outside of Trabia Garden. Pulse Ammo can be acquired by Mugging Blitzes for a Power Generator. Power Generators are rare to Mug from a Blitz, so this may take some time. Blitzs can be found in the Sarenghetti forest by the Centra Ruins. Quezecoatl has the Card mod and Diablos has Mug.
