You could always try battling the enemy again as there's no limit to the amount of times you can battle it.
Perhaps it was learned on a different enemy skill materia?
Where did you learn it? How many times did it not work? This may have no relevance, but me and my cousin were trying to master the Enemy skill materia and he needed Trine, now the only two monsters that cast this are Yffiee's dad, you got to fight him in that five story temple, and that bug-like boss beast in the Niblehime(sp? Cloud's hometown) mines. You can only fight these guys once, but you can fight the bug in the battle arena, only problem is if you learn the skill, you won't keep it. Don't know if that helps.
No Beta?
I think you ran away during the battle.
you can still learn it if you run away
Taken from some Aardvark's FAQ :

"To learn an enemy skill, an opponent must use the skill on a character who is
equipped with the enemy skill materia. Once hit, your character will spin a
circle and you will see "Learned Enemy Skill xxxxxxxx". Once this is said, you
may use that skill for the remainder of the battle. Upon winning the battle
you will be able to use that skill from that particular enemy skill materia
at any time. Should you run from the battle or be kicked off of it, you will
NOT retain the skill. You can NOT learn enemy skills in the battle arena and
you can NOT learn them by having one party member casting them onto another
party member."
n_w95482 : i defeated it 4 times...NOTHING... :mad:
StellarKnight : hmm.what kind of "different"..I think Enemy Skill is unique
VDDZ : i learned it in the Midgar Zolom (near the Chocobo farm)..I don't know is it working, because i DON"T HAVE IT....(it was written : learned Enemy Skill "Beta"),but i didn't got this magic..
fireblaster_lyz : no, i killed it 4 times
BRILLIANT : but it was written : learned Enemy Skill "Beta"..i must have it...
what's the problem??but thank you for the answers....hmmm if it is a bug i will have to stop playing this fantastic game...
Was the character that learned the skill knocked out of the battle with that tailwhip that the Zolom uses? That's the only thing i can think o. Are you playing on an emulator or PSX (have to ask)?
if the character dies from being hit you have to revive him during the battle or you lose the skill.
i coulda sworn that you still learn it if you run away...oh well :rolleyes:
Midgar Zolom only performs Beta when low on HP.

It has 4000HP, when it is nearly dead he rises on his "tail", than just wait :heh:.

THAT'S RIGHT!!!!!Tifa always was knocked out, and she had Enemy Skill Materia..So i tried to put it to Barret.And know is OK.Thanks.But strange that everytime when i was fightning against Zolom, everytime Tifa was knocked out..a coincidence i think.(i am playing on an emulator)
Tifa didn't have enough health...
999 instead of 9999? :D
fireblaster_lyz : Midgar Zolom is in the beginning of the game........
This most certainly is a game bug/issue/oversight or an error on your part. I recommend the Eyes on Final Fantasy site and forum for questions regarding anything FF.

Actually, I meant a different "Enemy Skill" Materia, as in another one. You get 3 in the game I believe. You might even be able to buy them, though I'm not sure.

Oh my...I suggest you train up your characters before that guy at the beginning of the game. He will be tough if your levels are too low.
fireblaster_lyz : i defeated him..believe me..of course i trained characters before the battle...i defeated him when cloud's level was 30...this was in the beginning of the game..first time when i saw Midgar Zolom...
