    Sabot Fox is right on the money, but I wanted to go a little more in depth.

    50 consecutive wins without using the Retry option lands you this achievement. The Retry option appears a couple of ways:

    1. If you die.
    2. If your Mog Clock is Green or Yellow and you want to select the Retry option mid-battle (you cannot select Retry if Mog Clock hits Red).

    I highly recommend getting this in the first area of the game (New Bodhum AF 003). Reason being is that many of the monsters here are one-turn enemies (meaning you can win battles in one turn).

    Another reason is that Potions and Phoenix Downs drop a LOT in this first area. I don't know how many Potions and Phoenix Downs we start with in the game, but between killing monsters and treasure chests, I had 92 Potions and 13 Phoenix Downs by the time I moved on to the next area and I only fought 3 or 4 battles above the required 50 for this achievement. This saves a TON of cash early. I also ended up with 8 Iron Bangles. So this will save you that much needed gil early on.

    Here are the costs of these items if you bought them at Chocolina:

    Potion: 160 gil
    Phoenix Down: 1600 gil
    Iron Bangle: 300 gil.

    Good luck and enjoy FFXIII-2!

    Solario32Dam, I only got 4 Iron bangles when I moved onto the next area. Your description is perfect though.

    Earned by winning 50 consecutive battles without having to use "Retry" (basically, the Game Over screen). This should be easy to obtain while doing low-level monster hunting and farming for materials.
