Profile

Yo-kai Watch

Hoggles is fought in the second floor of Infinite inferno, having to be defeated in order to gain access to the third floor.

When confronted, the background shifts to the Hot Springs where Sproink is battled. Whisper even makes a retrospective of their encounter with Sproink.

Yo-kai Watch 2

Similarly to the previous game, Hoggles is fought in the second floor of Infinite inferno, having to be defeated in order to gain access to the third floor.

As with the previous game, when confronted, the background shifts to the Hot Springs where Sproink is battled. Whisper makes once again a comment about Hoggles, although it expresses some lack of concern about the Boss himself.

Yo-kai Watch 3

Hoggles can be battled in the Blasters T portion of the game. He appears as a boss in the Cluphinx Clenched Paw 1.

Strategy

Being a recolor of Sproink, Hoggles has a similar attack scheme. He will either attack by flinging one of his washbuckets at a single Yo-kai for damage, or toss a soap bar under their feet to Inspirit them, making them unable to act. He can also perform a butt stomp that will hit all front Yo-kai. His weakness is his belly button, but since he protects it with his washbuckets you must first target his face so he will shield himself, exposing it in the process. Attacking his belly button enough times will knock him down, but as you keep striking it he will gradually turn red until he gets back on his feet and unleash his Soultimate move, which deals heavy Fire-attribute damage to all front Yo-kai. To avoid it, simply aim all fire at his head instead, and avoid setting off any Soultimate Moves that target all enemies.

Him being stronger than Sproink, the player's team in this battle should be at higher levels.

Etymology

"Hoggles" is a portmanteau of hog and goggles.

"Onobori Kuroton" translates as "country bumpkin black pig".
