Be aware, i have only written down confirmed lodestone entries.
A self called insider told me the following, that enemies defeated goes 200000/500000/1000000, regional and local leves 2000/5000/10000 and for gil earned, there is a 100000 entry. Especially the last one is bugging me, but it exists: Alicia Lenneth (Rabanastre) 22/11/2010.
The best bet to reach 100000 gil is a faction leve R40+ with a base reward of 56000 and a 4×2 star multiplier (x1,8). Maybe with a base reward of 53000 and a time multiplier bonus you can reach 100000, too. My own record is ~96000 gil.
Update: after investigating all R40 and R50 faction leves since end of march, i think the maximum base gil reward is 50300 only given by NM faction leves (3rd “boss” leve). I havn’t missed one leve cycle so far. The maximum difficulty plus time bonus is in my opinion 8000 gil and can’t be reached after the reduction to 8 party members. Nevertheless with theoretical maximum bonus and maximum base reward 100000 gil can’t be achieved.
This means, Alicia got this achievement before all the latest patches adapted the rewards. This achievement seems to be not possible anymore at the current state of the game.

X enemies defeated (10*): 100/200/500/1000/2000/5000/10000/20000/50000/100000/?…
