Choose wisely and build a Yo-kai team that's ready for battle!
Are you ready to unleash the power of your Yo-kai Watch with a well-balanced team of Yo-kai?
In YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls for Nintendo 3DS, you can battle troublemaking Yo-kai, solve people’s problems, and end a civil war between competing Yo-kai factions.
But first, you need to assemble a team that’s ready for action!
Here are some quick tips for building a better team of Yo-kai…
Your Yo-kai Watch holds six Yo-kai, so choose wisely!
There are eight different Yo-kai tribes, and each tribe has special skills in battle.
So if you place two Yo-kai from the same tribe next to each other on your wheel, you can get a special Tribe Unity bonus – and that gives tribe-twinsie Yo-kai a special boost to one of their stats!
Some Yo-kai, like Hungramps and Tongus, focus on healing.
Consider having one of these Yo-kai in your front rotation at all times! You can then try to keep an eye out for Yo-kai with low health or bad status effects, then rotate them into the back row to be healed.
Yo-kai can be strong against some elements and weak against others.
Attacking an enemy with its weakness can deal major damage. This can be useful for fights where you’re having trouble inflicting any damage on an enemy. And just an FYI – healing and absorbing won’t be affected by elemental moves.
You can use items you’ve collected in-game to help your team in battle.
Or, if you want to try to get an opposing Yo-kai to like you, you can offer them a food item. But be careful – different Yo-kai have different favourite foods.
And did you know you can use items at the very start of the battle, before you even begin to fight? Nice!
You can equip your Yo-kai with helpful items that can boost and reduce stats such as Strength, Speed, Spirit, and Defense.
Rings, Charms, and other equipment can be found in treasure chests, traded for, or created through Fusion.
Some Yo-kai can equip one item, while others can equip two items. It can help to think about a Yo-kai’s Tribe and attributes when equipping them with items.
Have you heard about Legendary Yo-kai?
Rumour has it they’re extremely strong, but befriending them can be a very challenging task, requiring you to fill out a special page in your Medallium.
Once they’ve been befriended, though, they can add some serious muscle to your team. Do you think you can befriend one?
