Yo-Kai Watch 2: Attitude Guide

This guide has all the info you need on Attitudes in Yo-Kai Watch 2!

Yo-Kai Watch 2 has an Attitude feature that changes Yo-Kai stats. This is similar to Natures in the Pokemon series, except that it can be changed with items and it affects which actions they will perform.

I'm going to go over each Attitude and describe what they do. I'll even explain how to change them.

This guide will go over Attitudes in Yo-Kai Watch 2 including:

  • Attitude Basics - What they are and how to read them.
  • Attitude List - What each attitude is, what they do, and how to change them.

Attitude Basics

A Yo-Kai's Attitude determines 3 things: How likely they are to loaf in battle, stat increase, and what action they are most likely to do on their turn.

You can view Attitude by viewing the Yo-Kai's medal and looking next to "ATTD." The first word describes how likely they are to loaf in battle, and the second word determines their stat increase and what action they are likely to do.

There are books you can get to make Yo-Kai less likely to loaf in battle. There are also books to change the second part of their attitude.

Attitude List

Each battle action has 2 attitudes associated with it. I'll separate the Attitudes into those categories. Each Attitude has a description of what they are likely to do in battle, what stat or stats get increased, and what book you need to change to that Attitude.

First, I'll go over the first part of the Attitude, how often they will loaf in battle. When they loaf, they don't perform any action.

Laziness
  • Serious - Very unlikely to loaf
  • Stiff
  • Casual 
  • Carefree
  • Sloppy
  • Clumsy - Very likely to loaf.

Stiff has the least chance to loaf and Clumsy has the most chance to loaf.

The rank of a Yo-Kai determines how close to the Serious Attitude they can get.

  • E and D Rank - Can get to Serious Attitude
  • C and B Rank - Can get to Stiff.
  • A and S Rank - Can get to Casual.

The closer the attitude is towards Clumsy means they will loaf more and the closer it is towards Serious means they will loaf less.

There is a book called "A Serious Life" that you can use on Yo-Kai to make them loaf less. It will go up 1 level and can't be used if they are at the highest their rank can go.

Not every Yo-Kai can have every attitude, but it is obvious which won't work.

For example: Only Yo-Kai with healing abilities can get Gentle or Tender. Only Yo-Kai that inspirit allies can get Helpful or Devoted
