Yo-kai Medals have been manufactured as collectable merchandise, which are sold in packets containing them, or come with some of the toys. They can be used in a toy Yo-kai Watch that plays the summoning song of the Yo-kai's Tribe, or stored in a real-life Yo-kai Medallium. Each of them has a QR Code at the back, which can be used to scan items in the video games.

There are certain Yo-kai Medals that have different compatibility with certain Yo-kai Watches, such as the original Japanese Model Zero only being able to play Z Medals, or newer Yo-kai Medals being incompatible with older models. Though, this was compensated with the Model U being able to play any kind of Yo-kai Medal released at the time, and included a SD Card function that allows it to be upgraded over time.

The Yo-kai Medals in Japan, South Korea, and several Asian countries have been manufactured by Bandai, which lasted for four years. In America, Europe and other territories, they were manufactured by Hasbro.

Overview

This article is currently under construction for various kinds of reasons by the administrators of Yo-kai Watch Wiki. This will mean that the article may or may not be locked for some time.


Yo-kai Medals are collectable items that were originally sold when Yo-kai Watch was popular in Japan.

Compatibility

Each Yo-kai Medal has a QR Code on the back that can be scanned for specfic items in the video games. They usually give out colored coins of their respective Tribe when scanned or a special item to fight them with like a Rubynyan Coin, making them appear in the game to be battled once per day.

In the original Yo-kai Watch video game, QR Codes were locked entirely to Hasbro-manufactured medals which made the Gemnyans unobainable for some time, but this was fixed in Yo-kai Watch 2 when the QR codes were used from the Bandai equilivents. However, QR codes for Japanese Song Medals in Yo-kai Watch Blasters give out One-Star Coins instead due to the item not making an appearance in the game.

Japanese Medals

Yo-kai Medals that are sold in Japan are manufactured by Bandai Japan. They first came out in Japan around early 2014, when the animated series was making it's debut and when the first set of regular medals were released throughout the year.

They became a big selling point when Yo-kai Watch 2 was released in Japan, causing Bandai to expand the franchise into other Asian countries. Medals were released in South Korea in 2015, with the Japanese names being replaced with several Korean ones.

Ever since the success, Bandai has gone on to reprint the first two sets of Yo-kai Medals, with fan-selected Yo-kai getting holo variants and released two types of Medals in 2016 to coincide with the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model U.

Western Medals

Yo-kai Watch

Yo-kai Watch

A commercial for the Hasbro-manufactered Yo-kai Watch, featuring Yo-kai Medals.

Yo-kai Medals sold in North America, Europe, Oceania and Middle Eastern territories were manufactured by Hasbro before being discontinued in the summer of 2018. They were released in line with the Yo-kai Watch anime and video game back in Winter 2015, and has grown to expand in other international territories. Unlike Medals released in Asia, those types remove the name of the Yo-kai on the Yo-kai so it could function properly with other-language watches.

In Fall 2016, Hasbro released their version of Zeroshiki Medals, going by the name of "Yo-motion". It allows the Model Zero watch to display holographic animations of the Yo-kai that was being summoned by the watch, after the tribe summoning song was played. In North America, the Yo-motion Medals only lasted for two sets but two more were sold in France, Spain and Italy.

In Spring 2018, An upgrade to Yo-motion technology known as "Yo-motion X2" was released only in France. It features a version of the U Medals, which are now colored blue likely to distinguish between the green Yo-motion Medals.

Unlike Japanese and Korean Medals, Hasbro-manufactured Medals are not compatible with Japanese watches, nor Asian Medals are compatible with Hasbro-manufactured Medals. This is due to the medals themselves having a different bump pattern at the bottom, as both medal types cannot completely go inside the watch.

Application Compatibility

Main article: Yo-kai Watch Land

To coincide with the release of Hasbro's Yo-kai Watch merchandise, an application for iOS and Android devices called Yo-kai Watch Land was released. On the App, QR codes can be scanned, which would allow to take augmented-reality pictures of Yo-kai and view 3D Wiki entries for them. It would eventually end up being taken off the app store on December 31, 2018 due the discontinuation of Hasbro-produced merchandise in western territories.

Like in the Japanese version, Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble could read Yo-kai Medals direct from the Yo-kai Watch Land app. The more medals that are read, the more the player could exchange them for new titles and profile icons.

Criticism

YomotionMedalComparison

A comparison of a Kyryn Medal between a Japanese and Western variant. The scaled-down artwork was heavily criticised by fans.

The western release of Yo-kai Medals was met by controversy and criticism by fans and collectors because of poor stock issues, region-restricted Yo-kai Medals or lack of demand.

In the first game, only Hasbro-produced medals can be scanned via a QR Code, leaving the Gemnyans completely unobtainable for some time without hacking. In 2016, Hasbro released a limited-edition set involving the five Gemnyan Medals, which caused controversy in the fandom due to the high price and limited availability. Later, the Gemnyan QR Codes were officially distributed on the internet by Hasbro themselves and the second game now accepts QR Codes from their Asian counterpart as Yo-motion Medals share the same ones.

More issues arose when the second season of Yo-kai Watch Medals were released, going by the moniker of of "Yo-motion". The Medals didn't sell enough to warrant a Series 3 and Series 4 release to come out in North America[1], leaving the overall collection incomplete, and the brand to be discontinued in North America around late 2016. The artwork on the Medals were also criticised for being down-scaled to make room for the Yo-motion circles.

By the time Series 3 and Series 4 Yo-motion came out in France, Spain and Italy, they were produced in limited quantities to the point of the Medals themselves going for high prices on auction sites. It was unknown if a second printing happened with the sets.

At the beginning of 2018, the western version of the Yo-kai Watch Model U was released in France, Spain and Latin America only with no English-language support. While the Yo-motion feature was upgraded, the SD Card slot was completely removed from the product. The voices were also different from the ones in the anime or games and some of the summoning songs had the exact sames as the Model Zero.

All of this lead to negative reception from fans, especially in Europe. The Hasbro Yo-kai Watch brand was discontinued in summer 2018. When Yo-kai Watch Blasters was released, the official Yo-kai Watch Twitter confirmed that they would be giving out QR codes on their profile from that point on.
