In the core series games

The Teal Mask

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Yukito and Hideko live in Mossui Town. Yukito descends from a long line of mask makers. He tells the player and Carmine the true story regarding Ogerpon and the Loyal Three, which was a secret passed down in his family. Later, he helps them repair Ogerpon's Teal Mask.

When first meeting the player, Hideko gives them the Teal Style Card, allowing them to access more styles and clothing options. She also provides the player with three varieties of jinbei after the main story of The Teal Mask has been completed.

Mochi Mayhem

Kieran and the player meet Yukito and Hideko at the entrance to Kitakami Hall while searching for Nemona. During the conversation, Hideko insists Yukito have some mochi that she's offering. Eating it, Yukito, like his wife, falls under Pecharunt's control and battles the two children alongside her. Once the player has caught Pecharunt, Yukito and Hideko, like everyone else controlled by Pecharunt, return to normal.


Mochi Mayhem

Under the influence of Pecharunt's Binding Mochi, Yukito and Hideko challenge Kieran and the player to a Multi Battle.
