Yoshida Confidant Guide: Chat Responses, Abilities, & More

Toransuke Yoshida is a politician who hasn’t had any luck in the elections. He’s mostly giving speeches at the Shibuya Station Square, where only a handful of people pay any heed.

In this guide, we will tell you how and when to unlock Yoshida Confidant. And we’ve also prepared a list of all the rewarding chats in every ranking event.

Using that list, you can gain maximum points and quickly max out Yoshida Confidant.

Considering that Yoshida Confidant in Persona 5 Royal will be locked out after November 17, we recommend you start talking to the politician ASAP!

And with that disclaimer, let’s begin.

Persona 5 Royal Yoshida Confidant – How To Begin?

Persona 5 Royal Yoshida Confidant begins on May 6. That’s the first time you are allowed to go out at night.

Now, you have to go to Shibuya Station Square. There, you listen to one of Yoshida’s speeches and pick up a job leaflet for the Beef Bowl Shop.

After working there for two nights, Yoshida will notice you. And that’s when the Yoshida Confidant in Persona 5 Royal begins.

Afterward, Yoshida is available at the same place 4 nights a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday).
