Nate receives the new Yo-kai Watch U prototype, but the Yo-kai Cornfused makes him unimpressed with the new features. Meanwhile, Hailey and Usapyon start on a weekly-magazine rocket project to help the latter's old master rediscover his dreams.
A New Watch!
Nate, Whisper, and Jibanyan find out that Steve Jaws, the CEO of Yopple quit his job due to people realizing he did not make the Yo-kai Watches but Nathaniel, Nate's grandfather did. Therefore, he was replaced by Mark Shachiberg, who introduced the new Yo-kai Watch, the Yo-kai Watch U. Just when Whisper was about to go to the Yo-kai World to stand in line after learning it can evolve, their found out that there is no official release date for the new watch, which is still in it's Prototype phase, and such, is not readily available to the general public.
In the middle of Whisper's jealous sulking, Hidabat peeked it's wing out of its closet, showing the Yo-kai Watch U Prototype. Whisper, surprised asked how Hidabat got the watch. Soon, he showed a picture of Mark Shachiberg and Hidabat, revealing that they are friends. Hidabat gave Nate the watch in return of letting her live in his closet, though the Yo-kai also added the Yo-kai Watch U Prototype was much too big for her and it would ruffle her wings.
After getting an average opinion from Nate about the Yo-kai Watch U Prototype, Whisper got mad and tried to punch Nate into the air over his apparent dismissiveness until Jibanyan thought of using the Yo-kai Watch U to find a Yo-kai, leading them to find out that Nate was just inspirited by Cornfused. Whisper scolded and shouted at Cornfused, demanding them to stop inspiriting Nate, and much to his and Jibanyan's surprise, Cornfused complied without fuss and left.
With Jibanyan commenting on how easy it was to defeat him, Whisper asked Nate for his real opinion on the watch, Nate said it was actually cool, and gained Cornfused's Medal out of it. Afterwards, Nate stores the original Yo-kai Watch and Yo-kai Watch Model Zero into his closet.
Hailey and Usapyon's Little-by-Little Rocket Designing 1: The Engine
Hailey and Usapyon begin building a rocket ship in hopes of filling Professor Hughley's dreams. Usapyon was sent a package of a spaceship's engine. They need to find Blazion's medal in order to power the engine, since it isn't included in the packaging. So, they look around the city for Blazion. Unfortunately, neither Usapyon or Hailey can understand what Blazion is saying, so they start saying "meramera" a lot. What Blazion wants is for Usapyon and Inaho to be extremely fired up! Now, Usapyon gets very fired up, convincing Blazion to fire up their engine. After they befriended Blazion, Hailey uses his medal for the rocket, putting the completion rate at 20%.
