So...anyone have any idea which youkai are not available in Psychic Specters?

Oct 3rd 2017 at 8:17:13 PM

I've played Bony Spirits and decided to get Psychic Specters. I decided to go the Fleshy Souls route in that game. However, I'm beginning to notice that version exclusive quests aren't present in the game. For example, I tried finding that Slicenrice sidequest and it wasn't there. Also, when I tried to look for Zappary in the Mt. Wildwood tunnel, he wasn't there at all.

From what I'm seeing, version-exclusive content is not present at all in vanilla Psychic Specters, and I'm assuming you need to transfer the data from a previous version in order to get it. Did that donut choice in the beginning not matter at all when it comes to gameplay? Or am I not doing something correctly?

I just bought the digital version of Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters. I don't know how long it'll take before I can try and befriend Machonyan, but I'm willing to trade it to anyone who needs him...eventually.

By the way, does anyone know if it's possible to link games when the people aren't in the same room? I'm looking for someone with Fleshy Souls to link with.

I don't have any of the first two editions precisely because I knew that a version 3 existed and I just waited for that. [lol]

This weekend I will either play this again or attempt to finish Ever Oasis.

Made my first foray into the Infinite Tunnel. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what this place has to offer once you manage to unlock its entirety.

Also, just a heads-up to everyone who's started playing Yo-Kai Watch 2: I recommend trying to recruit Snartle when your Watch Level is D. Snartle's still going to be a pain in the ass to fight, but a party around Level 14-ish should be able to handle him, especially if you managed to get some good pulls from the Crank-a-Kai.

Double-posting because something pretty amazing happened to me when I was spinning the Crank-a-Kai. Using a light blue coin, I got a grey capsule, but the grey capsule doesn't pop open for some reason. Then, a Noko comes out of nowhere and swallows the capsule. Right after that, a gold capsule comes down and pops open to reveal Shadow Venoct. Needless to say, I'm very, very happy.

By the way, if anyone wants a Machonyan, let me know. I've gotten to the point where I can reliably fight and recruit him, and I'm happy to trade with anyone who wants a Machonyan.

Someday, once I'm done with Ever Oasis... (**** I hope this is the final dungeon alraedy?) I'll continue from where I left off... and I'll take up your offer if I would need it.

Been playing quite a bit of Psychic Busters mode recently. Since I don't have anyone in the area to play with locally, I've had to do solo runs. Still, even with only one person, it's pretty fun.

Moving along in the game, and I feel like I'm getting close to finishing the main story. I've got my watch rank to A and I've managed to recruit a whole bunch of Crank-a-Kai exclusive S-ranking Yo-Kai, to the point that I'm extremely close to unlocking both Gilgaros and Slurpent. I want to see if I can unlock one of those two before I take on the main story's final boss.

One thing I like about the Sports club is that you can refight bosses. I didn't like that, in the first game, only a couple of bosses could be refought. Too bad Sports club doesn't give your Yo-Kai experience for fighting those bosses, but eh...

By the way, anyone know if you can befriend multiple Slimamanders or SV Snaggerjags?

Yokai are everywhere
Costing me money
Messing up my NNID
They dragged out Ever Oasis
Made me eat ramen with cheese
Caused one-ninety deaths in Cuphead
Pulled in FEH with nothing for it

Well after putting all those incidents behind me (except the messed up NNID which I will get back to this weekend) I'll be playing Psychic Specters again starting today.

I dunno if you can recruit multiple copies of the bosses, the search engines aren't helping...

I'm just one Yo-Kai away from unlocking Gilgaros and one Yo-Kai away from unlocking Slurpent. I just need to pull a Damona and a Devourer before I can unlock those two.

Managed to beat Mallice. I might've gone into the fight underleveled, because Mallice was doing a number on my team of level 40+ Yo-Kai (and even doing a number on the ones above level 50). Gonna head back to the Infinite Tunnel again to see if I can recruit Statiking.

  • Protagonist gets key from teacher, conveniently "forgets" to return it
  • Whisper suggests a watch upgrade since they saw a skeleton (?)
  • Key quests introduce them to three stuff
  • Mr. Goodsight loses screwdriver, can only retrieve it at night (why don't you just knock in the daytime haha)
  • Use of Pokemon-style NPC Roadblock detected so protagonist will run into Terror Time
  • Awesome Terror Time escape cutscene
  • We're back to infiltrating the school again
  • Why are there rolling Pokeballs uh I mean capsules down the hallways of the school

While I'm disappointed that there's no new regions like Pokemon and everything is the same old except with new storyline... I really enjoy these new twists in the same old places.

edit: And as I say this there's at least two new towns. Other than the past too.

I finally managed to conquer both the last boss of the Infinite Inferno and get its rare drop as well. That fight really made me go through all of my mighty medicine, but it was worth it.

Oct 30th 2017 at 2:12:31 PM

Been trying to get on the Happy-Go-Lucky Hexpress as much as I can every day to make use of the Lucky Crank-A-Kai. Also managed to recruit Illuminoct, and am currently trying to complete the Master Oden sidequests so I can get the best Oden items for my Darkyubi befriending attempts.

Also been Streetpassing myself since I have two 3DS's to try to get Pandanoko. I haven't managed to get that many tags yet, but I've heard horror stories about people getting a bunch of tags and not seeing the little critter. I really wished that they had tweaked its appearance rate up a bit when they localized the games, since I don't exactly live in a place where I can constantly get tags from other Yo-Kai Watch 2 players.

I keeping telling myself that even if it has just a 1% chance of showing up, it's not as bad as the Shin Megami Tensei IV Fiends with a 1/256 chance of showing up. Problem is, I can only Streetpass myself twice a day, so I really feel that 1%...

Pichu-kun ...

I'm still on the part in 2 where you fight the drum youkai. I had beat him already a few weeks ago, but my 3DS turned off by itself and I rage-quit.

I wish befriending yokai was more easier in 2. I think 3 fixed some of it, however in 2 it's such a mixed bag.

Oct 30th 2017 at 5:23:53 PM

[up]Are you referring to Don Chan?

I definitely agree that befriending could be improved. I remember trying to recruit an Illuminoct for over an hour. I finally got fed up, switched my party to include a Yo-Kai that focuses on negative inspirits to make use of the Poke mechanic (the only one on my previous team was Snartle, but I had his attitude set to Rough so he usually used physical attacks), then tried again. Took six tries before that day's Illuminoct decided to befriend me.

That was the most frustrating befriending attempt in my whole game experience. Not even the Onis in Mystery Way or getting the Ghostly Goo was that bad.

It's only like tossing a (vanilla) Pokeball at a legendary... then soft resetting until you got the nature and IV (for hidden power) desired. [lol]

The skeleton boss is stupid easy compared to Yokai Watch 1's Slimamader.

So I am glad I went to Japan right before I continued the game. That train section was really cathartic hahaha.

Also, I should've done my research before I buttered up Mirapo. I'll be using its upgrade soon once I get the Brainy manual again. I'm using the speedrun strats of giving it the manual, then equipping the Illusion Ring on it to reduce its defense.

I'm now in the past currently finding grandpa's watch parts. My girlfriend, being a massive Apple fangirl, had quite a kick out of Steve Jaws. Funny since we called the Yokai Watch as Samsung-branded earlier... for exploding.

Still hunting for Pandanoko. Oh, how much it sucks when I can only get 2 Streetpasses a day because the Streetpass relays around here don't ever give me Yo-Kai Watch 2 tags...

On the plus side, I've managed to recruit all three Oni. I'm still working to get the five Wicked executives, and I'm currently trying to get more Mighty Medicine so I can rematch Kabuking. Still also have to take on the Divine Paradise as well.

So after that, I just decided to use both Mirapo and the other mirror whose name escapes me right now.

I wonder why Katie doesn't mind being in the bath with Jibs and Whisper...

Then I found out Yokai do go to the toilet...

After that, we beat up Meganyan, which is a boss? Wow, this game's bosses are easy.

And then we went back in time, which is annoying due to the past's lack of Mirapos...

To unfreeze Kenny's friends, we fought another boss, which is also ridiculously easy...

And then we went back in time to fight the two evil dudes, only kind-of-hard because they revived each other the first time they died, and while I easily figured out to KO them at the same time, it still cost some items to keep the team members alive.

Finally back to the present. We got another quest that is a retrace of an old one, but this time we needed to jog dad's memory... and we also earned a bike for it.

And a storm is coming, it doesn't like Romeo and Juliet... and that was a fairly easy boss again. What's up? I think they cut down the difficulty since kids were dying left and right in Yokai 1?

Ok let's see... heading for the huge yokai war. I wonder which side has the better yokai and/or plot. Bony or Fleshy... (checks net now)

Ok Venoct's on Bony. Sorry Soul Donuts!

[up]Most of the main campaign bosses are relatively easy, though the Final Boss can be a bit tricky due to some unique mechanics at play.

A lot of the postgame bosses, on the other hand, will eat you alive if you're not prepared.

Yokai 1 bosses, IMO, were really harder on average. And I don't think it's just because I'm more familiar with the system now. Hehehe.

There's less "break parts to reveal weak point" gimmicks in 2. Well the skeleton had it, but the heart's HP was just too low and it was exploded in seconds after its weakness got exposed (and I didn't have Baddinyan, which would've make this boss even more trivial). Slimamander in YW 1 was actually a challenge the first two times I fought it, and whatever you call the infinite inferno version, that was hard too.

Well postgame of 1, I think the infinite inferno was truly hard. Needed to grind level 50 for the first boss and grind level 70 for the final one, and I had to spend a hour or two to level a Frostail and Betterfly from scratch. Then I quit and awaited Psychic Specters...

Back in Yokai 2, we went through the yokai war, stopped it, then we found out that donuts have a relevance to the plot (it was a genuine shock to me haha, I love it).

Then we used the Force, and Evil Fairy lost her job. We are now heading to Old Springdale to thwart another evil plot.

[up]I definitely think that Yo-Kai Watch 2 had harder postgame bosses. I mean, I thought Orcanos was bad in Yo-Kai Watch, but then some of the postgame bosses of 2 would make him put away his kanabo in shame.

Mighty Medicines are your best friend for the hardest bosses, because they hit so hard your healers often can't keep up.

Well thank got they got harder. The final boss's first form owned me once. The second form, was annoying but not as hard, figured it out during the battle. (Hey, gotta poke the souls like I poked them hearts right...)

So where's the Movie app in Psychic Specters? The hidden Yokai doesn't seem to be in the place most guides say he is. Could it be elsewhere? I tried day and night too, and running around the area.

You get it from a sidequest, if I recall correctly. Look for the Yo-Kai Directator and do his sidequest. I think he's in Springdale Central Station?

I'm still trying to get the evolutionary items for Timidevil, Grumples, and Pupsicle. Playing Blasters, I've only managed to get one evolutionary item. Thankfully, it was the Sublime Whetstone (lucky me).
