This cheevo is quite simple, yet missable in a single playthrough.

First, find every item in the game. This will happen through the course of the game. You can get items as drops from enemies after a battle, or from interacting with objects in the games environment; ie. boxes, trashcans, crates, etc.

Second, use every item in the game at least once. This is the missable portion of the cheevo because you can finish the game without having used a particular item.

While in battle you can open your inventory by pressing the 'A' button with one of your main characters highlighted. In your inventory you will find several rows of items. The first row (left to right) is healing items, the second row is 'throw to inflict damage' items, the third row is party buffs, the fourth row is enemy debuffs, and the last row is enemy specific distraction items.

A simple way to avoid missing this cheevo is to systematicly use every item in the game. Over a few encounters (early in the game works best) you can go through and use each one of the thrown, buff, and debuff items. The healing items will most likely be used through playing the game, but you could be better safe than sorry and use them all in a single encounter as well.

The enemy specific items will all need to be used as well, I do not know if you can use them on enemies they are not intended for or not, I will find this out and edit this guide. Enemy specific items include an orange for the little robots and an invisible box trap for mimes, among others.

A good rule of thumb is; as soon as you find a new inventory item, use it.

Remember that if you are going for the "Immortal" cheevo the game must be saved after a fight for any items used in said fight to count.

Here is an item list in the order they appear in your inventory.

[bandage] [hot toddy] [strength beverage] [weak sauce] [fruit]
[guaze] [clown nose] [liquid armor] [armor eater]
[first aid] [dynamite] [lightning juice] [sloth oil] [invisible box]

A big 'Thank you' and credit for the list goes out to moogless.
