Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Poundmates Guide

Poundmates Guide

Poundmates or Delivery Help is a feature where Kasuga can ask for backup in battle using the smartphone. After hiring someone on the smartphone, they can be summoned to assist in battle. Each character offers his own unique attacks and effects in battle. More characters can be invited to the battle after progressing through the main story and sub stories.

Restrictions

Some characters will only appear after meeting certain conditions such as fighting human enemies or fighting during the day.

Requires signal

Since poundmates depends on the smartphone application, Kasuga must not be staying in areas like the underground.

Certain enemies can block the signal

Analyze the enemy carefully to determine which among them prevents you from calling for help. You can adjust your team before triggering the battle.
