How to Obtain Diablos

Headmaster Cid will give you a Magical Lamp at the entrance to Balamb Garden just before you leave for the Forest Owls Mission in Timber (click on the link to go to that section of the strategy guide). Examine the Magical Lamp to begin the battle against Diablos and once you defeat him he will join you as a Guardian Force.
