Tattletell (Japanese: バクロ婆 Bakurobā) is a Rank D Restoration-attribute Yo-kai of the Mysterious tribe.

Tattletell evolves into Tattlecast when fused with Lafalotta. As of Yo-kai Watch 2, Tattletell also evolves into Tattlecast starting at level 23.

As of Yo-kai Watch 3, Tattletell evolves into Country Ba'aba when fused with Merican Flour.

Biology

Tattletell resembles an elderly woman, which is shorter than most Yo-Kai in the series, easily fitting in Nate's hand. She has long arms, easily wider in length than her body and diminute legs. She also has an oval-shaped head and her inner mouth and tongue are green-colored with a single bucktooth in the maxilla. Her eyes are round and her hair is white and kept in a bun, enhancing her elderly appearance. She dresses in a white shirt, a dark purple shawl and a dark red skirt.

She is very mischievous and enjoys making people reveal their secrets without realizing.

She is shown mostly talking using "Baban" (Japanese: ばばーん Babān, "telltell" in the English dub) for everything, but does show she can speak normally.

Her most notable ability revolves around causing people reveal their deepest secrets without them realizing. She triggers the possession by clinging on to the victim's face. This ability is also shown to work in Yo-Kai. The only drawback of this ability is if the victim's secrets are not embarrassing -such as Walkappa's, Tattletell will not feel satisfied; if the possession attempts are constant and with the same result, her stamina will decrease gradually.

Relationships

Hungramps

She seems to know Hungramps, he later recognized her and even invited Tattletell to drink some tea together during his confrontation by Nate.

Tattletell - Yo-Kai Watch Summoning

Tattletell makes her debut in EP002, when she possesses Katie and has her reveal Nathan's trip to the restroom. Frustrated, Nathan confronts the Yo-Kai and summons Jibanyan, only to him falling victim to Tattletell's ability and leave the scene embarrassed.

When Tattletell attempts her ability on the Kappa, the latter's revealed secret is amusingly not embarrassing, which causes the elderly Yo-Kai to lose stamina; after trying several more attempts to Walkappa until it was dusk, with the same results, Tattletell falls exhausted, and Nathan manages to convince her to give him her Yo-Kai Medal.
