YO-KAI WATCH Wibble Wobble is easy to learn and hard to master. In each battle, players must swipe to connect one Wib Wob to one of the same kind, forming an even larger Wib Wob. Quick fingers are a must: connect small Wib Wob and tap on the large ones to deal damage to enemy Yo-kai (who usually attack in approximately five second intervals). The larger the player’s Wib Wob, the more damage it can deal against enemy Yo-kai. The more Wib Wob you connect, the faster the Fever Gauge will be filled . . . which kicks off Fever Mode, rendering players invincible for a brief period of time.
Occasionally, when players pop a large Wib Wob, a Bonus Ball will appear. By popping a Bonus Ball, surrounding Wib Wob will grow even larger for extra damage! Pop enough of a specific Wib Wob to fill up its Soul Meter and ready a Soultimate Move, which ranges from damage to restoring HP. Once the meter is full, players can tap on a particular Yo-kai to perform its Soultimate Move!
But defeating Yo-kai is just half the fun. After each battle, players may befriend enemy Yo-kai they have defeated. Players can even increase their chances of befriending enemy Yo-kai by giving them snacks just before battle. If players befriend multiples of the same Yo-kai, they will then earn valuable skill points. Once players have collected a select number of Yo-kai, they can summon forth an extremely powerful and useful Legendary Yo-kai!
All befriended Yo-kai can be viewed in the Yo-kai Wib Wob section of the menu, where players can arrange and strategically pick the best ones for their roster. If arranged properly, players can be awarded extra bonuses for a competitive edge. Yo-kai stats, character descriptions, and Soultimate Moves are also viewable in the Yo-kai Medallium.
Players can participate in daily, normal, and event missions for Y-Money rewards. Y-Money comes in handy in the Yo-kai Watch world and can be used to buy items, coins, and even food to treat potential Yo-kai friends. Before jumping into battle, players must spend Spirit, which regenerates over time as well. Players who want extra Y-Money and Spirit may purchase them in-game or earn them by progressing through the campaign.
