Use Special Abilities.
Special (特殊, Tokushu?) is one of the four main commands in Final Fantasy X containing miscellaneous abilities not necessarily designed for physical attacking. A number of Special abilities are designed to temporarily increase or decrease the ally or enemy party's stats. Many of the abilities are often associated with the Thief class, such as Steal. Other abilities include Copycat, and Doublecast. A number of Special abilities appear as Skill abilities, albeit for a greater MP cost and with an additional physical attack.
Abilities in the Special command largely feature on the Rikku section of the Sphere Grid, but every Sphere Grid section features a Special ability, with stat increasing abilities being heavily spread.
There are 22 abilities in the Special command, but only 20 in the original Japanese and NTSC versions.
