Final Fantasy 7 Remake summons locations
Before we start, do note that you can’t summon these summoning materia in every battle. They’re only available in certain boss fights and tough battles. A summon is always accompanied by a purple bar which determines how long the summon will stay in a battle. Once the bar depletes, the summon performs a powerful attack and leaves and you can’t call it again in the same battle.

It can’t be missed. You’ll automatically receive it during Chapter #4.
