Present day Yo-kai is an un-official name giving to Yo-kai who hail from the present day of Japan in time within the Yo-kai Watch series, given this name retroactively following the release of Yo-kai Watch 2 and the Classic Yo-kai.
The Present Yo-kai have a variety of differently-styled Yo-kai Medals.
- The Yo-kai originally released with the first game have silver nondescript medals, with trapezoid-shaped corners that frame the etched in directional arrow and tribe insignia of that Yo-kai.
- Following the advent of the Yo-kai Watch's Model Zero model, all newly introduced Present Yo-kai introduced in Yo-kai Watch 2 have Z Medals, which are pastel green-colored Yo-kai Medals.
- Those who have Z-Medals following the introduction of the Yo-kai Watch U are named U Medals due to these Medals featuring a little "U" in the top right corner of the Medal's artwork. Among the Yo-kai introduced in Yo-kai Watch 3 have those medals.
- Additionally, with the advent of the Yo-kai Watch Dream, Present Yo-kai can change out their previous medals, be it Normal Medals, Z Medals, or U Medals, into Dream Medals.
- The Merican Yo-kai are considered a sub-section of Present Yo-kai based in America.
