Baffle Board

A Baffle Board with its Yo-kai Hot Spot in the overworld.

Baffle Boards (Japanese: ナゾのたてふだ Nazo no Tatefuda) are a mechanic introduced in Yo-kai Watch 2. Scattered throughout the game world are hidden boards that must be revealed using the Yo-kai Lens. They appear on the radar with the question mark icon, similar to how hidden Yo-kai in the overworld are uncovered.

Once a Baffle Board is revealed, the player is given a Yo-kai quiz, and must guess the name of a Yo-kai after being given three clues. After correctly inputting the Yo-kai's name, the Baffle Board will create a Yo-kai Hot Spot (Japanese: 妖怪サークル Yōkai Sākuru) and become permanently visible without having to re-scan it.

The player must then befriend the corresponding Yo-kai if they haven't already, and call them onto the hot spot. The player must currently possess the required medal to call the Yo-kai, so if they were previously added to the Medallium and then traded away or were crystalized, they can't be called. However, the medal is no longer required after calling the Yo-kai, so temporary trades with friends to unlock the Yo-kai Hot Spots are possible.

The summoned Yo-kai will then give the player access to a special feature or cause something else to happen to the surroundings.
