The earliest you will get this is on the third (different) enemy in Chapter ten. But there are more than enough enemies later in the game to get this with (a total of 219). It is still recommended to do this on all enemies as you meet them, since the knowledge of the enemies do determine what actions the partymembers you don't control will perform.

There are several ways to get to know your opponents:
1) The Libra technique which you find in the Ravager skill tree. When in a fight use you third option Techniques and pick Libra. This will use 1 TP of your hard saved points. There is a in-game tutorial for this option.

2. The item Librascope. This one will completely scan every enemy you are currently fighting.

3. If you fight the same type of enemy multiple times you will eventually uncover every detail, but if you are just playing through the chapters without backtracking the are several enemies, especially the bosses, which you will encounter too few times.

The final hidden information will always be the Rare Drop one. So just use RB and check if you got that information, and you can go for the next enemy.

I will recommend using Librascope on major bosses, in particular those with several parts you can aim for.

Personally I used Libra all the way, (since the RB information makes it easy to see if you have done it enough) but if you save and reload your save, you should many places be able to fight normal enemies several times by backtracking.

There are also some enemies you may miss or avoid (SPOILERS):
Chapter four: In one fight only I encountered a Targeting Beacon. It has low HP but do high damage. So you might be better off to just get rid of it, than to spend time scanning it.

Chapter six: The game will tell you that there are some high powered enemies in the area which you can easily avoid. The enemies in question is the Scalebeast and the Wyern. The Scalebeast is easy to beat, if you're patient (it is quite slow - it took me 15 minutes only using Vanille) but the Wyern has a devastating attack so you might want to save that one for later.

With those three enemies in mind, you you probably unlock this one on the sixth enemy in Chapter ten.

And remember: RB is your best friend when working on this achievement.
