Chrono Trigger Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Duplicate Items

Once you reach the Arena of Ages, send your monster out to train until it returns back with an item. When it returns, you will see the monster's status window showing the item it brought back. Without closing this window, press the A button to select the option ""Train Monster"", then press the A button a second time and you will now be on the Consumables item screen. Press the B button once to return back to the original screen. This will duplicate the item that the monster brought back (though you will not see any evidence of this until you look in your own inventory). You can continue to do this to get 99 of that item. This is a great way to stock up on magic, speed, or strength capsules.
