Yo-Kai Watch Translation Project: Chapter Two
Welcome back to our Yo-Kai Watch translation project, where we provide you with every line of in-game story text in English. Since Yo-Kai Watch is only on Nintendo Switch in Japanese, we felt that providing a video with the translation, as well as the translated text down below, would be helpful!
On Episode One, we learned that Nate can see Yo-Kai by using a special Yo-Kai Watch. With this knowledge, Nate begins to investigate certain disturbances around town, while getting acquainted with his good friend Whisper! Enjoy Chapter Two!
Nate: I’m ho-ooooome!
Mom: I’m just saying that it wouldn’t kill you to do a few chores every now and then!
Mom: I feel like I’m the only one doing anything around here!
Dad: I work all day, and you want me to come home and pick up a mop?
Nate: *sigh* They’re arguing again….
Whisper: Relationships are complex. Parents can be best friends and worst enemies.
Nate: Why does it have to be like that?
Whisper: That uninvited houseguest of yorus might have some answers for you.
Nate: What are you talking about? We don’t have any houseguests.
Whisper: I bet to differ. There’s a Yo-Kai here, and it’s making your parents fight.
Nate: A Yo-Kai? Really? Where?!
Whisper: That’s what your Yo-Kai Watch is for! Try taking a look through your lens!
Instructions: When you get a strong reading along with a ? on your radar…
Instructions: Press the Y Button to activate the Yo-Kai Lens and take a look around!
Instructions: You just might find a Yo-Kai hiding somewhere near you!
Instructions: OK, so it’s time to find our Yo-Kai houseguest.
Instructions: Looks like we found Dismarelda! Kind of looks like Muk!
Nate: Uh…excuse me…? Hi.
Dismarelda: Why, hellooooo there, dahling! You can see me?
Nate: Uh….yeah. I have this watch that lets me see, uh, certain –
Dismarelda: I’m sorry if I gave you the impression I was interested in your life story….
Dismarelda: How can I help dahling? You’d never kick a lady out into the street, would you?
Nate: No, of course not! I mean, uh…maybe?
Whisper: Don’t be afraid to be a little more direct. We may need to use some force here.
Nate: Force!? What do you mean by that?! You want us to…fight her?
Dismarelda: You would never dare raise your hand to a lady now, would you dahling?
Cadin: Allow myself to be of assistance to thee and…myself. Ready thyself, evildoer!
Cadin: I shall strike thee down with the strength of a dozen hearty cicadas!
Cadin: Never mind. She’s strong, this one.
Nate: You just one-shot him! Cadin didn’t even stand a chance!
Dismarelda: Are you done here, my dear? Because I’m really quite busy at the moment.
Whisper: She’s tougher than I though. We’re going to have to go with plan B.
Whisper: Let’s get out of here as fast as we can!
Nate: You just want to run away?
Whisper: We need to make friends with more Yo-Kai to tak her down!
Whisper: We should befriend at least three more Yo-Kai before we try again!
Whisper: Keep an eye on your radar! Let’s go outside and take a look around.
Instructions: Sometimes when you defeat a Yo-Kai, that Yo-Kai will want to be friends.
Instructions: But you won’t be able to make friends with some Yo-Kai so easily.
Instructions: Feeding a Yo-Kai its favourite food in battle can make it friendlier!
Instructions: OK, so we need to befriend three more Yo-Kai, let’s go!
Whisper: Oh, Nate! One more thing!
Nate: What’s up?
Whisper: Since you’ll be battling more Yo-Kai, you might want to take these.
Instructions: Ok, so we received three Plum Rice Balls. These can be fed to Yo-Kai to potentially help in catching them, or our Yo-Kai can eat them to regain some health.
Whisper: You can get more at a convenience store too. Better safe than sorry!
Instructions: Check your inventory in items.
Instructions: There you can select and use various kinds of food and tools.
Instructions: When your Yo-Kai HP is low, feed it food to recover HP!
Instructions: Springdale has many different stores selling various items.
Instructions: For example, at Banter Bakery you can buy different types of bread.
Instructions: At Everymart, you can buy items or sell items you don’t need.
Instructions: Stock up on favourite foods of various Yo-Kai to befriend them!
*Go to Everymart and Walk Up To Eye Po*
Instructions: Eyepo hangs out at Everymart and even some dungeons.
Instructions: If you see Eyepo around, check in to rejuvenate your Yo-Kai!
Instructions: Eyepo can also swap your Yo-Kai medals and access your diary.
*First Battle after Desmarlada*
Instructions: If your allies are in a punch, go to Item and feed them to recover HP.
Instructions: If you give enemy Yo-Kai food, they may end up becoming your friends!
Instructions: Just remember, all Yo-Kai have specific likes and dislikes.
Instructions: You can only give one item to each enemy Yo-Kai.
*After first Battle*
Instructions: Yo-Kai fight on their own by using four strategies in battle!
Instructions: Those strategies are Attack, Technique, Guard and Inspirit.
Instructions: Sometimes they may Loaf around! If that happens, try to be patient!
Game: You can take a look at the help for battles in the info menu.
Instructions: The best battle method is to focus everyone’s attacks on one enemy.
Instructions: Pin the enemy to focus your attacks on a particular Yo-Kai!
Instructions: If the pin hits the enemy, your friends will target the pinned enemy.
Instructions: Turn the Yo-Kai Wheel to choose which Yo-Kai will fight.
Instructions: Check your enemy and your allies to choose the three best Yo-Kai!
*After getting three more Yo-Kai*
Whisper: You’ve got some nice Yo-Kai Medals there, but even so…
Whisper: If we’re going to fight Dismarelda, it’d help to have some stronger Yo-Kai.
Whisper: Oh! And what is that…? I believe I’m feeling a strong aura at this moment!
Whisper: That must mean there’s a powerful Yo-Kai nearby! But where?
Whisper: If I’m sensing this correctly, it seems to be coming from….the fish market!
Whisper: To the Fish Place!
Instructions: There are eight Yo-Kai Tribes. Yo-Kai all excel in different areas.
Instructions: Check the Yo-Kai Medal to see the Yo-Kai Tribe.
Instructions: The battle can change drastically based on your tribe combinations!
Instructions: Ok, so we are off to talk to the fish seller!
*Run to Mr. Fischer*
Mr. Fischer: Hey there, kiddo! You lookin’ to catch some fish? Cuz we’re throwing some!
Mr. Fischer: Lately it seems like the throwing has been distracting the cars that drive by.
Mr. Fischer: So keep an eye out when you’re crossing the intersection, OK?
Whisper: Ohohoho, Nate! You know what that sounds like?
Whisper: I bet there is a Yo-Kai at play here! Let’s examine the intersection.
Instructions: Ok, so we need to use our lens to search the area.
Instructions: Ok, we found a Yo-Kai!
Nate: This cat seems really….uh, tense.
Whisper: He looks quite focused on something. Such determination! Such power!
Nate: This Yo-Kai seems a bit, I don’t know….different from the others I’ve seen.
Jibanyan: Heeeeeeeeeeere it comes…!
Jibanyan: This ends here….and nyaow….
Jibanyan: Take this, you evil beast! Taste my…PAWS OF FURY!
Jibanyan: Defeated again….
Nate: Hey! Are you OK?!
Jibanyan: Yeah, I’m – Wait – WHAT!? – You can…you can actually see me?!
Jibanyan: Do you know a girl named Amy?
Nate: Amy? I don’t think so. Who’s that?
Jibanyan: Oh. Well…she was my owner before I got turned into a Yo-Kai.
Jibanyan: When I was still a regular cat, I was hit by a truck. That was nyo fun at all.
Jibanyan: My owner, my beloved Amy….I can still hear her like it was yesterday.
Jibanayn: She said, “Hit by a truck?!”
Jibanyan: “…That’s so lame.”
Nate: That wasn’t very nice!
Jibanyan: Well, it’s my fault! I’m the one who went and got run over by that evil truck!
Jibanyan: Once I’m strong enough to take down a truck, I’m going to find Amy again!
Jibanyan: But….I seem to just keep getting hit. The other Yo-Kai always make fun of me.
Jibanyan: One of them even stole my only treasure…my one photo of Amy.
Nate: They took your picture from you!?
Jibanyan: Yeah. Maybe I really am just…lame.
Nate: Making fun of you and stealing your photo…? That’s so mean!
Whisper: Who took your photo?! Let me have a crack at them!
Nate: Yeah, we can get it back for you!
Nate: Do you know which Yo-Kai stole it? And where this Yo-Kai might be?
Jibanyan: Yeah…his gang usually hangs out right behind the Fish Place.
Jibanyan: I can’t even go over there anymore!
Nate: We’ll take care of it! Don’t you worry! You should just rest up for a bit.
Nate: Oh! What’s your name by the way? I’m Nate.
Jibanyan: I don’t remember any names from before other than Amy…
JIbanyan: The Yo-Kai call me Jibanyan though! I kinda like that!
Nate: Jibanyan! Go it!
Whisper: Let’s see if we can find a way to sneak into the back of the Fish Place.
Instructions: OK, let’s go look behind the Fish Place!
*IF Whisper Comments on Crossing the Road*
Whisper: Cross the road when the light is green. Comon sense!
Nate: So even Yo-Kai obey traffic rules?
Whisper: Good things happen to good kids who follow good rules!
*Go into back of Fish Place*
Nate: Kinda sketchy back here….
Whisper: Yo-Kai just love lurking around dark and desolate places like this!
Whisper: These areas should be especially good for training against tougher Yo-Kai!
Whisper: But they don’t hide in areas like this…if they see you, they’ll come after you!
Whisper: These Yo-Kai filled areas will keep you busy…so you can’t access your diary.
Whisper: Have fun!
*Interact with Roughraff*
Nate: Hey, there’s the picture!
Roughraff: And justa….hwo is youze punks suppose’ta be?
Nate: You’ve got Jibanyan’s photo there! We’re here to get it back!
Roughraff: That little meow meow done went and got him some tough friends, eh?
Nate: Look, just give me that photo, OK? It’s really important to him.
Roughraff: Hehehe. I ain’t givin’ up dis pic! Y’hear me? Not widdout no fight!
Whisper: Get ready, Nate!
*After the fight*
Roughraff: You jerks! This kinda stuff is gunna drive me to hooliganism!
Instructions: Ok, so we obtained the photo of Amy. Let’s head back to Jibanyan.
Whisper: Hooliganism? Isn’t he a hooligan already? He smells like a hooligan…
Nate: I don’t think he can be more of a troublemaker than he already is.
Whisper: Anyway, let’s take this picture of Amy back to Jibanyan!
Nate: Sounds good!
Det Holdit: Hold It! I saw what you did!
Nate: Yeah? What’d you think?
Det Holdit: You just defeated a wanted Yo-Kai! One of the most wanted Yo-Crooks!
Nate: A wanted Yo-Kai?! Does that mean you can see Yo-Kai too?
Det Holdit: Of course I can! I’m not running around trying to arrest air here!
Det Holdit: Roughraff over there was wanted on one count of disorderly pompadour!
Nate: I didn’t think his har was disorderly at all. I kinda liked it!
Det Holdit: Yeah? Well, your follicles look like they might be a little rowdy there too, kid.
Det Holdit: Hrm. That actually might work. You ever think about going undercover, kid?
Det Holdit: Good! Then it’s decided. I’m deputizing you as an official Yo-Kai investigator!
Nate: Do I get a hat like yours?
Det. Holdit: Absolutely Not!
Det. Holdit: But you do get the satisfaction of wiping out Yo-Crime in the city!
Det. Holdit: I see the flames of justice burning in your eyes…So you’ll do it, right?!
Nate: Sure! Why not?
Whisper: Of course we’ll do it! We’d be delighted!
Nate: I can’t wait to help out!
Det. Holdit: Ah, the vigor of youth. You sound like me, when I had hope. You’ll do great!
Det. Holdit: Just remember – the peace of this fair city rests in your young hands.
Det. Holdit: If you need me, I’ll be not loitering over by the Lambert Post Office.

Instructions: Completing these quests successfully will reward you with an item!
*Walk back to Jibanyan*
Nate: I believe this is yours!
Instructions: So we gave the photo of Amy to Jibanyan!
Jibanyan: I can’t believe it! How did you do that?!
Nate: Well, it wouldn’t be right to just let something so important stay stolen!
Jibanyan: *sniff sniff* Th-thank you! This means so much to me….
Jibanyan: But I couldn’t even get that photo back by myself. *sigh* I really am just…
Nate: Look, you’re not lame, OK? So just, y’know…get over it. Or something.
Nate: I think you’re pretty awesome, actually.
Nate: I mean, you’re trying to fight trucks so you can impress a girl!
Nate: I’d never do anything like that!
Jibanyan: *Sob Sob* Oh, thank you, Nate….Thank you so much!
Nate: Keep up the good work, Jibanyan! I’ll be cheering you on!
Jibanyan: Thank you again! I just know I’m gonna beat up a truck someday!
Jibanyan: By the way, we’re friends nyaow! You can call me whenever!
Instructions: So we’ve befriended Jibanyan. Got to get him into the party asap!
Whisper: There’s that strong aura I felt earlier! This is promising.
Whisper: It would appear that my instincts were right on the money!
Whisper: ….even if he wasn’t able to beat that truck. All trucks should beware!
Whisper: Nate, I think it’s time, let’s head home and battle Dismarelda!
Nate: Sure, I’m feeling much more confident now that we have our strong friends!

Nate: Um….Ms. Dismarelda?
Nate: I’m guessing you’re not planning on leaving anytime soon, right?
Dismarelda: Oh no no no no no no no, my dahling. I most certainly don’t feel like leaving.
Dismarelda: I’m really quite taken with this place….and your parents are so entertaining!
Whisper: Well, that went about as expected. We need to work on your negotiating skills.
Whisper: Time to attack! Let’s call out Jibanyan!
Nate: Come on out, my friend!
Nate: Calling Jibanyan!

Jibanyan: M-make sure the ceiling’s higher nyext time you call me…
Nate: Jibanyan, are you OK?
Jibanyan: Yeah. Great. Perfect. I can’t tell if I’m in pain or not…I think I’m numb.
Whisper: Let’s have Jibanyan fight Dismarelda!
Nate: Are you up for this?
Jibanyan: Yes, let me at the purble blob of….blobiness!

??? – Aha! Ma Cherie! Zis is where you ‘ave been!
Nate: Where?! Who said that?!

Dismarelda: Oooh, my sweet Happierre! I’m so sorry I stormed out like that, dahling!
Whisper: It seems that these two Yo-Kai are…married, maybe?
Nate: Yo-Kai get married too?!
Happierre: Haha, I’m afraid my wife ‘as been…. ‘ow, do you say? A noosance.
