Fast Materia Level Up in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

In Chapter 14, you need to find and equip the Pedometer Materia which will be on the ground near Aerith’s house. It will be very obvious and unmissable. Walk 5,000 steps and it will evolve into the AP Up Materia, because the Pedometer Materia levels up after you walk around. This can be done by completing the side quests in Chapter 14 or you can even choose to walk in circles to do it.

Once you have the AP Up Materia, equip it which will give extra AP (double AP!) to Materia linked in neighboring slots. Remember to be equipped with the AP Up Materia on any party member at all times. Even though it allows you to double the AP of only one Materia at a time, it is extremely useful in the game.
