This is a list of all Al Bhed primers found in Final Fantasy X. "Missable" means this Primer must be taken when the player is at the location, or they are moved to the Sanubia Desert and can only be obtained after gaining control of the airship.
Note: Primers XIX through XXII can only be obtained on the player's storyline visit to the location. However, they can be acquired by synching the Primers with the Al Bhed Spheres available in the Travel Agencies.
Al Bhed Salvage Ship (if missed, re-obtainable in Bikanel Desert)
When the player collects a certain number of primers, their Al Bhed rating increases to a certain level. In Final Fantasy X HD remaster, collecting one primer will unlock the the "Speaking in Tongues" trophy while acquiring all primers will unlock the "Master Translator" trophy.
Djose - Signing up for the desert excavation by talking to Gippal.
Macalania - Yuna must talk to the Al Bhed woman standing outside the shop at the lake. This must be done before the Follow that O'aka mission.
Bikanel - The player will obtain one primer upon the first visit to Bikanel. After that, all remaining primers that have not been obtained can be found through digging (this can be done in any Chapter except Chapter 4).
The player can still get the Djose and Macalania primers in Chapter 2 if missed in Chapter 1.
Djose - The player can get two primers here. For the first one, Yuna should talk to Gippal before completing the Protect Besaid Temple! mission. The player will get the other when the No Way Djose mission starts.
Macalania - Obtained before the Secure the Agency mission starts.
The Celsius - Once the chapter starts, Yuna must talk to Paine on the Deck and then go to the Bridge. This will obtain the first primer. For the second one, one will have to watch the Djose and Macalania CommSphere events.
In Final Fantasy X, the 26th Al Bhed Primer (the translation for Z) into Al Bhed is mistakenly named as "Al Bhed Primer XVI" or the 16th (P) in the North American version of the game. However, its function and description remains correct.
