Quick Yo-Kai Watch Attitude Guide: Everything you need to know

Need to know how Attitudes work in Yo-Kai Watch? Then, check out this detailed guide!

Yo-Kai Watch has a lot of little features. One of these is the Attitude of Yo-Kai. If you have played Pokemon, they are similar to Natures. They work differently and you can change them without getting a new Yo-Kai.

I'm going to explain how Attitudes work in Yo-Kai Watch and describe each one. I'll also tell you how you can change Attitude. Please visit my beginner guide for more tips on the game.

This guide will go over everything about Yo-Kai Attitudes including:

  • Attitude Basics - What Attitudes are, and how to read them.
  • Attitude List - A list of each Attitude, what they do, and what books to change to that attitude.

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.

Laziness
  • Loafer - Very likely to loaf.
  • Carefree - Likely to loaf.
  • Stiff - Not likely to loaf.
  • Serious - Very unlikely to loaf.

Obviously, you will usually not want Carefree or Loafer. There are some exceptions with certain Yo-Kai that have skills that activate when they loaf. For the most part, you'll always want Stiff or Serious.

Yo-Kai Watch Attitude book

There is a book you can use to make your Yo-Kai loaf less. This book is called, "A Serious Life" and it will raise your Yo-Kai's first part of Attitude to the next level. For example: If your Yo-Kai is Carefree, it will go up to Stiff.

You can only do this once per Yo-Kai, so you can never go up more than one level. If you have a Yo-Kai that is a Loafer and you want it to be higher than Carefree, you'll just have to get another Yo-Kai.

Not every Yo-Kai can have every attitude, so keep that in mind. You should be able to use the Attitude that compliments their strengths, so it isn't a big deal.

Here is a list of what each stat means:

  • STR - This affects the power of their Attack.
  • SPR - This affects the power of their Technique.
