INDEPENDENT MATERIA

Independent materia is just as what it says. It's independent. You can't junction it with anything: it acts on its own. However, most of the independent materia is pretty useful to HELP you.

Others are a bit useless and can be hard to get in all of the Gold Saucer games. Some are totally weird because you pretty much have no use for them and wonder why the creators put these certain independent materia in there. *sigh* Oh well.

There really are no drawbacks to using independent materia. Really, use them to your hearts extent and how many slots allow it.

Um...basically, whoever has this equipped, will jump in front of a character about to get hit like a guard and takes the damage. Odds of it happening depends on what level you're on.
Counter Attack
Win at the Gold 
Saucer chocobo 
races
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 10000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 50000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
This is one of the better independent materias ^^. Depending on the materia's level, your character will counter attack automatically after they're hit.
Long Range
Find in the Mythril
Mines
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
Master - 80000 AP
With this thing equipped, your character who usually attacks short range can attack enemies that are far from their reach.
MP Plus
Buy - 8000 Gil
Sell at Master - 
56000 Gil
* - none
* * - 10000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 30000 AP
Master - 50000 AP 
As you gain levels on this materia, your max MP output is increased. It's pretty cool if you ask me ^^. This also depends on how many MP Plusses you have equipped on you. A must to equip once you get the chance to buy.
HP Plus
Buy - 8000 Gil
Sell at Master - 
56000 Gil
* - none
* * - 10000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 30000 AP
Master - 50000 AP
This is similar to MP Plus except that it increases your max HP output. Once again, a must to equip and buy once you have the chance.
Luck Plus
Find this at the 
Temple of the
Ancients
Sell at Master -
1050000 Gil
* - none
* * - 15000 AP
* * * - 30000 AP
* * * * - 60000 AP
Master - 100000 AP 
Depending on what the materia's level is, your character's luck is raised. Personally, I found no use to this ^^. I just wanted to sell it.
Magic Plus
Find this in Zango
Valley 
Sell at Master - 
1400000 Gil
* - none
* * - 10000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 30000 AP
Master - 50000 AP
Your equipped character's magic power increases depending on the materia's level. Another no use for this. I just sold it for a lot of mula ^^.
Speed Plus
Win this at the
Battle Square in Gold
Saucer - 12800 BP
in Disc 1, 4000 BP in
Disc 2
Sell at Master - 
1400000 Gil
* - none
* * - 15000 AP
* * * - 30000 AP
* * * * - 60000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
Similar to the last two, depending on your materia's level, your character's speed will increase by certain percentages. I never really used this since I had too little space to equip it.
Chocobo Lure
Buy - 2000 Gil
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 3000 AP
* * * - 10000 AP
Master - 30000 AP
This is a must if you wanna go chocobo breeding or just to get to the Mythril Mines in Disc one. Running around the Chocobo tracks in various places, the level of materia depends on how often you'll encounter chocobos in battle.
Gil Up
Bought at Gold 
Saucer's Wonder 
Square - 1000 GP
Sell - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 80000 AP

I never got this, so I don't know what it does ^^;;;

Square - 2000 GP
Sell - 1 gil

See the above.

Pre-Emptive
Bought at Gold
Saucer's Battle
Square - 6400 BP 
(disc 1), 1000 BP
(disc 2)
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 8000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 40000 AP
Master - 80000 AP
Basically, what this does is that you get the chance to attack first during battle (meaning that your enemies have their backs turned). Your chances of having this depends on the level of this materia.
Enemy Lure
Bought at Gold 
Saucer's Batte
Square - 800 BP 
(disc 1), 250 BP (disc
2)
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none 
* * - 8000 AP
Master - 20000 AP
Once you get at level 2 of your materia, you have a 100% chance of running into enemies no matter what (that's 2x the normal amount you usually run into ^^)
Enemy Away
Win at Chocobo 
racing 
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 8000 AP
Master - 20000 AP
This is the opposite of Enemy Lure. You have a 75% chance of NOT running into enemies when this is at level 2. Why would you want to get this anyhoo? Wimp!!
HP/MP Switch
Only able to get this 
when chocobo 
breeding; get a 
river/mountain 
chocobo and go to
North Corel materia
cave
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
Master - 80000 AP
This materia is pretty pointless. I mean, why would you want to switch your MP max to your HP max for?
Super Enemy All
Found in Final 
Dungeon
Sell at Master - 1 gil
* - none
* * - 10000 AP
* * * - 20000 AP
* * * * - 50000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
This is really cool ^^. Instead of the normal "attack" you have "slash all" in place of it. Steal, Sense, Morph, Deathblow, and Manipulate can be used with this. How effective it is depends on how high the level is.
