Guarding, Accuracy, and Dodging Skills
Cheeksqueek holds some major hazing power with his stinky gas. Cheeksqueek has the ability to lower your opponents attack accuracy by spraying them with gas. The more Cheeksqueek you have, the less accuracy your opponents Yo-Kai have.
These Yo-Kai will never miss a hit, even if the opponent has the skills Dodge and Wavy Body. Kyuubi, Frostail, and Cuttincheez can take this to their keen sense of smell while Singcada uses his great eyesight.
Wazzat causes everyone (allies and enemies) to forget how to guard… unless they are a boss.
Dumkapp can predict his opponent’s movements so he is harder to hit with attacks, techniques, and Soultimate moves.
Baddinyan is so bad (to the bone), he dodges all Earthsplitter, Headsmack, and Headbutt Techniques, unless Oldness zone is in effect.
Stat Boosting Skills
Boosting stats in the midst of a battle can be a very useful way of winning against your opponent. By learning how and when Yo-Kai are able to boost their stats during battle is useful for taking advantage.
When an ally gets KO’d, Siro, Blazion, Komashura, and Quaken will get a strength and spirit boost for the next five turns. This activates once per turn, so if two allies are knocked out during the same turn, you get one stat boost.
Critical Hit Influencing Skills
Often times Yo-Kai will hit with a critical hit. A critical hit is when a hit is more powerful than just a normal hit. There are a lot of Yo-Kai who have skills that activate when they are hit with a critical hit or when they hit with a critical hit.
You might find it easier to score critical hits with these Yo-Kai but your opponent will find it easier to score critical hits on them too! Rollen, Chansin, and Dubbles chalk this all up to their luck. Reversette, Reversa, and Insomni are all just insecure.
