Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble is a new iOS game from Level-5 that has just “wobbled” its way into the puzzle game scene. So what’s the deal with this game? What’s the basic premise of this brand-new title? According to Level-5, the game is played by swiping to connect matching Wib Wob and watching them grow, before you pop them to attack your enemy. Bigger Wib Wobs mean bigger damage, though a lot of this game revolves around stringing combos together. You can also befriend and collect enemy Yo-kai – there are over 200 of them to collect. And for another main feature, you can take part in missions and events to earn rewards.
If you still don’t understand what this game is about, you might as well give it a spin on your iPhone and iPad. But we suggest reading this Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble strategy guide before playing the game for the first time – you just might get some useful tips and tricks on a variety of topics! We also recommend that you read this if you’ve been playing the game for some time, as these tips aren’t for beginners alone. From stringing combos together to taking advantage of the game’s many modes and features, we’ve got them all here in this guide.
1. How To Organize Your Team
Obviously, the first thing you should do is to make sure your team of Wib Wob is based on matching tribes. That’s going to make your team more powerful. However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, and you’ll also have to consider their Soultimates, which are like their special moves. It may sound like a good idea at first to organize a team full of offensive Wib Wob, but at the end of the day, you’ll need to use the usual RPG logic when building your team. You’ll need some offensive specialists, some healers, some defensive tanks, and the like – make sure you’ve got a balanced team, and also have some Wib Wob who can help you befriend Yo-Kai and add them to your collection. In addition, take into account the enemy’s tribe, as that could have an effect on how strong your team is against them.
2. Fill Up The Fever Gauge
At the bottom of the screen you’ll see a colorful meter that fills up as you play the game – that’s the game’s Fever Gauge. This meter will fill up as you connect more Wib Wob together, and once the meter’s all full, you can unleash Fever Mode. We’ll tell you later on the next tip about the Wibble Wobble Wombo Combo (yes, it sounds very Dr. Who-esque), but when you unleash that combo with the Fever Gauge filled up, it’s going to be even more powerful. One neat trick you can try is to use the Paws of Fury to launch the Eye of the Tiger when popping the Big Wib Wob.
3. It’s All About Combos, But Here’s The Biggest One You Can Launch
As we mentioned above, this is a puzzle game that tests your ability to string combos together. Indeed, it’s one thing to connect matching Wib Wob, but it may take some practice before you can launch some of the game’s most powerful combos. If you pop Big Wib Wob consecutively, you’ll launch an extremely powerful combo that could deal a ton of damage to your enemy, but the catch here is that you have to be very quick about it. You have just three seconds to match another set of Wib Wob in order to continue the combo. We suggest bunching together as many Wib Wob as you could before you string these combos together.
4. Avoid Blocking Those Pops
Now we just told you about stringing the right kind of combos together in order to launch lots of damage to your enemy. But there are other things you need to take into account. Take a good look at the board, and do not, in any situation, break a group of identical Wib Wob off. That’s what they call being a “pop blocker,” and that’s not going to be good for your game. Should you encounter a smaller Wib Wob trying to stop you from linking two big ones together, then pop that little Wib Wob so you can string that big combo together.
5. Basics On Befriending Enemy Yo-Kai
Generally speaking, the best way to court enemy Yo-Kai and befriend them is to feed them. Look at the magnifying glass icon at the top left side of your screen so you can see the enemy Yo-Kai’s favorite food. On many occasions, giving them such a snack would help, but there are also times when the enemy still won’t play nice, especially after a brutal attack from your team.
If food doesn’t win them over, that’s where your special Yo-Kai would help; for example, you can try Shmoopie, who has a Soultimate of charming enemy Yo-Kai. You can also spend Y-Money (the premium currency) and coins on the Crank-a-kai, which allows you to charm and befriend random, yet powerful Yo-Kai. And if the Yo-Kai you get is one you already befriended, that’s no problem – you’ll still be powering up their Soultimate, so it’s a win-win situation for you.
6. Explore The Sewers
All of the game’s bosses have a hidden sewer that might not seem too appetizing to explore. Still, it’s a good idea if you explore that sewer and uncover the prize beneath it, which is a chance to power-up one of your Yo-kai’s Soultimates. If you get three stars in the Boss Battle Report Card, you’ll be shown the sewer’s entrance; tap on one of the stars and you’ll see how you can gain access to that entrance. And, as a bonus tip, there are some hidden parts of the in-game map that have some rare Yo-kai hiding; explore those hidden areas and give it a go! It’ll be worth it in the end.
7. About The Game’s Missions
Once you befriend Sgt. Burly, the Beat Camp master, on Stage 16, you’ll unlock the game’s missions. You’ll be able to check the new Missions menu on the main menu once you do this, and you’ll have new missions to try out every day. Each of them will have their own unique requirements, and these may include befriending a certain number of Yo-kai in the period allotted, or stringing together a specific numb of combos. Go for these missions and earn some juicy rewards once you’ve completed them! Or face the wrath of Sgt. Burly.
8. Take Part In Special Events
Aside from the optional missions, which could earn you some exciting rewards that you won’t ordinarily get in the process of playing the game as usual, there are also limited-time events which you can join. For example, Level-5 launched a special Easter Event just a few days ago, but there should be much more to follow in the coming weeks. Completing these special events would earn you the premium currency you need to use on the Crank-a-kai, or could also allow you to befriend new Yo-kai.
9. What Happens When You Unlock A Seal In The Medallium?
Sometimes, if you befriend a new Yo-kai, you’ll unlock a seal in the Yo-Kai Medallium. What does this mean, and what does this do? Well, the seals hide extra-powerful Yo-kai of Legendary rarity; not only do you add more to your collection, but you also add some of the rarest of the rare!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this set of tips and tricks for Level-5’s new mobile game, Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble. We will update this guide with more tips, once we discover some new ones, so stay tuned!
