Scan Sapphinyan's Yo-kai Medal QR code at Piggleston Bank to obtain a Sapphire Coin. Using it on the Crank-a-kai will award the Sapphire Bell, which makes Sapphinyan appear.

After having acquired the item, Sapphinyan will appear in the dolphin tank at Rolling Waves Park in Downtown Springdale, where he can be battled once a day until he's befriended through the regular method.

In the 2.0 update, Sapphinyan can be freed from the Crank-a-kai with a Mystery Coin, which is dropped by Glitzy Bones on Mystery Way.
