The Yo-kai Pad (Japanese: 妖怪パッド,Youkai Paddo) is a tablet device that is manufactured by Yopple Inc., used by Yo-kai. Just like a real-life tablet, it has access to several applications and internet in the Yo-kai World.
Whisper and is notable for owning a Yo-kai Pad, that looks up information of Yo-kai identified by Nathan Adams. Usapyon also owns one, except he uses it more for browsing around the internet rather than finding information about Yo-kai.
In the video games, the Yo-kai Pad plays a prominent role functioning as the pause menu with applications that act like features, beginning with Yo-kai Watch 2.
The Yo-kai Pad is meant to resemble a tablet, that includes various applications just like real-life tablets. It has a blue frame with a yellow center, and ears at the top of it. Usapyon's Yo-kai pad is almost the same, but it has rabbit bucktooth instead of a sharp tooth on the face.
While there are known to be two Yo-kai Pad holders (Whisper and Usapyon), it's possible that more of them exist, as Hidabat orders a new one for Whisper to use after he accidentally loses it in EP048.
While the Yo-kai Pad did not make a proper appearance in the first game (instead being replaced by a generic menu), the Yo-kai Pad now takes the role of the menu that allows the player to navigate Yo-kai.
The Yo-kai Pad makes an appearance on Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, which allows the player to do various things on the menu. Unlike other games, the apps increase as new updates are issued, other than as the game progresses.
Allows the player to free Yo-kai from the Crank-a-kai. Types vary depending on event, though the regular one is always available. In the Japanese version, the Dream Roulette appears and the event Crank-a-kai uses Y-Points.
The player can view their items they have collected in this app. Exporbs can be used to Level up Yo-kai there and Passes can be redeemed to fight certain Yo-kai. Y-Point boosting items, usually obtained from events can be activated for a shore period of time in the Japanese version.
Gives the option for the player to fuse one Yo-kai with another, or with an item. Unlike the mainline games, fusing costs 500 Y-Money each and cannot be done anymore once the fused Yo-kai has a max Soultimate.
Allows the player to view their real-life Yo-kai Medal collection, and exchange them for points or rare gifts. Medals can only be scanned via the app in the Android version while in the iOS version, another application is required (though, in the Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese versions, a website and camera must be used.).
Shows the profile of the player, along with the friend code, Title and Icon. Titles and Icons can be changed later on in the game as more are unlocked. The player can either copy their friend code text (via the dashboard) or take a picture of the profile.
Help, or Community (Japanese: 커뮤니티,Keomyuniti) in the Korean version
Sends the player to the "Help" page in the Settings app in the American and European version. Though in the Korean version, it sends the player to the now-defunct NeverCafe community relating to the video game.
Available at the beginning of the game.
Wib Wob Me
An application that is only available in the American version. Players can use their photos to take pictures with a filter, so it can go on the face of Mimikin or Mimikin A.
Offers the player a download code that can be redeemed at the Post Office in Yo-kai Watch 3: Sushi & Tempura. It allows either WobblenyanS or WibblekomaT to be fought and befriended, dependant on the version.
Allows the player to look at the biographies of the Goku Yo-kai, which are unlocked if the Yo-kai are obtained and levelled up. Also, the player can unlock additional health and attack stats if more Goku Yo-kai are obtained.
Unlocked at the beginning of the game, after the Goku Orochi event.
There has been merchandise based off of the Yo-kai Pad. The most notable one is the Yo-kai Pad toy released by Bandai in Japan and Korea.
There is an unused English version of the OrcanosMedal application icons found in the files of Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble. While the app icon was simply translated, it was never intended to be used.
However, in the Portuguese version of the launch message, the app mentioned an "Orcanos Medal giveaway". As the franchise wasn't popular in such territories, it was likely a translation mistake as no other foreign languages mentioned it.
