Follow TV Tropes
I'm fairly certain that Terror Time is random. I would recommend waiting until postgame before seriously trying to collect treasures, since all the good stuff comes after you beat the Final Boss and complete certain epilogue-only sidequests.
Also,, regarding Snartle, apparently he gets stronger based on what rank your Watch is. As he's an S-Ranked Yokai whose regular attack hits three times, you're going to want a Yokai with powerful defense and probably quite a bit of healing items as well. If you're dead-set on getting Snartle by jaywalking, you might want to wait until your levels are in the double-digits, just to be safe.
Any idea of how well the game's sold in the US? Just wondering.
We won't know until mid-December. Technically we'll probably have no idea if it isn't one of the top 10 best selling games of the month, and that's very unlikely to happen. Though we'll probably get the number through various... sources. My guess is 300K retail + digital + bundle, which I think would be excellent, but I wouldn't be shocked if I'm very off in either direction.
Nintendo is still promoting it through twitter and new commercials. I have no idea if that means anything. The important meeting commercial from the Direct got a second part by the way.

I have to say that I love fighting the bonus bosses in this game, though I am a little peeved that some of them can't be fought more than once. Wobblewok is my favorite bonus boss so far, and I really hope the sequel where it becomes recruitable comes to North America.
Just defeated Sproink and upgraded my watch to D rank. On to helping Bear find his mom's ring.
By the way, when I was grinding on some rank E yokai at night before my fight against Sproink, I got more exp than usual.
If you need to grind some Yokai, one of the best places to do so is the Secret Byway to the right of the Shoten Temple in Blossom Heights. Occasionally, a Noko will appear there, and if you can catch it and beat it, it gives around 375 experience points. Nokos can also be befriended, though it can take a while.
If you do befriend a Noko, I still recommend fighting them to get a special drop from them. This special drop is needed to get one particular Yokai.
Oh yeah, Sproink, I remember everybody said Spoink should have been called Sproink. But the first result for Sproink I see on Google is an Enchantress from Defense of the Ancients for some reason.
About to fight SV Snaggerjag.
I recruited a Signibble, so will it help? Since Signibble is electric attribute against Snaggerjag who's water attribute.
I've been hearing that the sales have been "ok" so far. It seems Nyantendo made the mistake of launching right nyaxt to Black Ops 3 which put a big dent into their promotion plans. And before you say "b-b-b-but Yokai Watch is a totally different demo than Blops" bitch Black Ops is like crack to a 9 year old, and half the people buying it aren't even outta middle school (people don't call it Childern's Online Daycare for nyauthin). Black Ops 3 being the best Call of Duty in a long time probably isn't helping things either (I mean it's Co D so it's gonna print money regardless, but I'd expect a good 2-3 million copies extra on account of this one nyat actually being shit.)

Anybody know where I can get some blue coins for the Crank-a-kai? I really want Count Cavity, but I blew the few blue coins I had. I tried to scan some QR codes on You Tube, but the bank guy said they were incorrect.
By the way, is fusion permanent or can you undo it? Because I want to turn Jibanyan into Badinyan.
There are a few ways to get coins, some more tedious than others.
Yes, unfortunately, the Crank-a-Kai is not one of the good parts of the game.

I know that people can ask for slightly different favors, like Jibanyan requesting different fish or the lady in Blossom Heights asking you to shop for her can ask for different vegetables, but are they unlimited?
I played hide and seek/tag with my classmates in Blossom Heights, is there any point in playing again?
Also, is there any purpose to the arcade?
Those requests are unlimited. I think they cycle between various different ones.
The series has shipped 10 million copies globally. As of March it had sold 7 million. Busters sold 1.7 million as of last week. I don't know how well 2 did since March, but it can't be more than a few hundred thousand. North American shipments must have been nice, though shipments does not equal sales.
So I finally, finally got some of the Crank-a-kai exclusive Yo-kai: Damona and Shadow Venoct. Time to level them up and see if their abilities are worth it.
Also a heads-up for anyone who plans to fight the Onis during Terror Time: the fight with the black Oni has a special item that can only be gotten by pinning a Wisp. This special item is needed to evolve Chansin into Gleam. So be sure to keep an eye out.
I barely defeated Snartle yesterday. That's kind of dissappointing that I only get experience points and money.
Next stop, the Yo-kai world!

So how did the game do sales-wise in the US? I read somewhere it only sold around 90K copies, but I could be wrong.

195K as of December retail only (so no bundles or digital). I have no idea what Nintendo's expectations were. I imagine it's a disappointment, but not a bomb bad enough to prevent us from getting the next game.
Maybe France will treat it better.
I REALLY hope we at least get Yokai Watch Busters. I like ARPG style of it more than the turn-based one from the other games.

Sangokushi debut trailer. It's a strategy game made by Koei-Tecmo.
Why do the spin-offs look so much cooler than the main games?
Also, keep in mind the first Yokai Watch hasn't been released in Europe yet. It might do better there because they have less of a stigma towards cute colourful cartoony games than North America, and tend to be less ignorant of other cultures.
I thought of something. If other video game characters had a Yokai Watch, what yokai do you think would they have befriended the easiest?
I feel in The Great Wario's case, he'd easily befriend Cheeksqueek or Cuttincheez.

Obviously, Pikachu would get along best with Jibanyan. Because mascots unite!
Kirby and Hungramps could probably get along fine as well. I can also maybe see Lucina, what with her odd fashion sense, being quite friendly with someone like Dazzabel.
Speaking of the series, I really wish that the other games will be localized in North America, particularly the Busters series. Come on, I want my playable Onis and Wobblewok!

Just got this game as part of a 2DS Bundle. Really fun, but kind of wish the Map was better when going all over for side quests
So it turns out during some of my travels, I found some coins. Plopped them into the Crank-a-Kai and got a whopping Holy Orb out of it. Now I have a level 34 Appak whos is decimating everything in its path XD.
