Nintendo decided to take something of an Animal Crossing approach to Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World. It’s possible to head into Yoshi’s hut and put together custom characters. You can then choose to share these original designs via StreetPass. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to share them online via QR codes, but we’re going to do our best here today with a few Yoshis I’ve made with the in-game editor.
Now, if you want to make your own Yoshis in Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, you need to be aware of a few things. First, you need to use the Professional Mode. This is the one that will give you the most control over your characters. Also, you will never be able to get as much detail as you’d like. The yarn effect and limited color palette keeps you from doing too much. While you can pick any seven colors you’d like, things blur on the actual character.
You also need to constantly be experimenting as you prepare your fuzzy friend. The swatches have a wrap around effect. So for Yoshi’s body, the upper middle will be his chest, the bottom three lines will be his tail, and the two far most left and right sides will be his back. The left and right arms and left and right legs are almost identical patterns, which means if you have one design on one side, you can draw that exact same design on the other to get the same effect.
For today’s post, I’ve created seven Yoshis for you all to enjoy. Copy and paste the patterns in Professional Mode, and it will bring the characters to life in your game. The icons on the left will indicate what each pattern is for. For example, if the first button is yellow and Yoshi’s nose is green, that pattern is for his nose. If his eyes and cheeks are green when that button is yellow, it’s for his cheeks and back of his head. When an arm or foot button is yellow and there is only one pattern available, you can use that pattern for both the left and right arms or feet.
