These battles are won by knocking your opponent out of the ring. Reducing the opponent’s HP to zero will not result in a win. Utilize your various techniques to knock them out of the ring.

Yo-kai Watch 4

Fight while checking the battle situation via the “Dosukoi Gauge” at the top of the screen. Be careful not to let your team’s gauge get too low.

Pay attention to the “kimarite” (winning technique) when an ally or enemy attacks with the final blow. Depending on the final blow delivered, the kimarite (“Demon Arm Throw,” etc.) will change.
