To unlock those special techniques (which range from simple power-ups to massive group attacks), you'll need to tackle each character's "Revelation Flow," essentially a flowchart with empty slots for items. Fill all the slots for a particular ability, and you'll get a new move to bust out in battle, as well as clearing a path to the next set of skills. At first, the items used for Revelations seem like random crap, being useless baubles, hunks of ore and weird food items. But eventually, you'll find other uses for that stuff, and as those items get rarer and rarer, you'll start to get really choosy about how you dole them out.
See, the junk you'll find has two other main uses: making new items, and feeding your Insectors, both of which are the basis for extremely beefy minigames. Insectors are bizarre, Pokémon-style bug creatures that you can capture with baited traps and care for in 3D terrariums. Collect five, and you'll be able to pit them against rivals in what amounts to turn-based chess matches. These are really deep if you let yourself get sucked into them, as each bugmonster has unique abilities and attacks, although it's all completely optional.
Similarly optional is your factory, which you'll get as a reward several chapters into the story. Where most games that involve "crafting" just let you mix a couple items together and call it a potion, Rogue Galaxy actually enables you to build a full assembly line, based on whatever "blueprints" passers-by tell you about. Pick the ingredients, figure out what equipment can process those ingredients and arrange your conveyors so that everything arrives at the smelter at the same time, and bam! You've got a new magical sword, protective item or whatever.
