Elemental Data

There are 16 elements in FF7. They are usually stored as a bitmask, but are instead stored as an index in the case of materia.

0x0008 03h Earth

0x1000 0Ch Punch
0x2000 0Dh Shoot
0x4000 0Eh Shout
0x8000 0Fh "Hidden/Ultima"

The battle text (part 26 of the KERNEL.BIN) refers to "Ice" as "Cold" and "Bolt" as "Lightning".
The names of elements 09h - 0Eh are not ever mentioned in the game. However, they are stored as battle text for the purpose of sensing.
"Hidden/Ultima" has no name mentioned in the battle text.
"Hidden/Ultima" is on only a few enemy exclusive attacks including Ultima Weapon's Ultima Beam. Elements 0Ah - 0Eh are considered Physical elements (though not enforced as such) and show up on physical attacks. Non-elemental attacks, such as Bahamuts' Flares, have no elements selected.
