Limit Breaks

Rinoa's Limit Break is called Combine. For most of the game, the Combine command will have one option: Angelo. The Angelo command will summon Rinoa's dog to perform an action she's previously been taught. (See table below.) In Disc 3 - Ragnarok, Rinoa acquires a second Combine ability called Angel Wing.

Angelo, Rinoa's dog and companion, can learn several attacks that can be used during battle. You can teach Angelo new tricks by buying the issues of a magazine called Pet Pals. After reading a volume of the magazine, go to Rinoa's statistics screen and flip through all of the menus until you get to the Limit Break screen. Here, you can set which ability you want Angelo to learn. Angelo's abilities are used at random and cannot be selected in battle. Some players choose to teach Angelo only some of the total tricks she can learn in order to avoid using lower-damage attacks.

Angel Wing is comparable to the Berserk status/spell, except that Rinoa is Berserked to use magic instead of physical attacks. While in Angel Wing mode, Rinoa will randomly use magic, but with increased power.

If you miss a Pet Pals magazine, you can purchase it later in the game in Esthar. So no magazine is entirely missable.
