There are two parts to obtaining the Gastro Fork, which is Quina's Ultimate weapon. The first part involves catching 99 frogs. See Frog Wrangler for more information on catching 99 frogs. The second part involves defeating Quale, Quina's mentor, when he/she/it? challenges you to a battle immediately after you have successfully caught 99 frogs. (I recommend saving after catching the 98th frog for this reason.)

Quale has one of the highest HP stats in the game but it's not really dangerous if you have the right preparations. It casts Poison, Confuse, Blind, Silence and Mini so I would equip support abilities that prevent these status ailments especially Clear headed as well as others like Loudmouth, Antibody, and Bright Eyes. Mini can't be protected against but can be easily reversed with Quina's Angel's Snack.
Do not equip the Return Magic ability since any of Quale's water attacks will heal it if reflected.

Quale has a hard hitting special physical attack, Rolling Attack and also casts Water and Aqua Breath. Therefore any equipment that absorbs or reduces water damage will also be helpful. Quale absorbs Water damage itself so do not cast Reflect otherwise it will also heal Quale.

The battle itself is not too hard. Quale has low defense and magic defense stats, despite its high HP stat so it's just a matter of beating it into submission. There should be no real danger if your party is equipped with the status ailment preventing abilities and equipment outlined above.

Once Quale is defeated, it will reward Quina with the Gastro Fork and then the trophy will pop.

After capturing 99 frogs, Quale comes out to fight you. Defeating Quale will get you the "The Ultimate Fork" trophy as s/he drops the Gastro Fork (Quina's ultimate weapon).
