The Yoshi you get as the fourth partner in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door hatches in more colors than just green. But how do you get the color of Yoshi that you want? I wanted to know, so I asked around and I got this. It depends on how long you wait before you run during your battle with the Iron Clefts.

Color you have

Wait time

Color you get

Green

6 minutes

Red:

Blue:

2 minutes

Orange:

4 minutes

Pink:

Black:

1 minute

White:

1 minute

Green:

So say you start off from right before the fight with the Iron Clefts. If you wanted an orange Yoshi. this is how you’d do it:

1. Fight and immediately flee.

2. In the locker room, look at your hatched Yoshi. Let’s say it’s green.

3. Reset your GameCube.

4. Fight them again, but wait 11 minutes from the time you saw the reen Yoshi and the time you flee the battle (add 6+3+2=11).

5.  When you go back to the locker room, your Yoshi should be orange.

This fails from time to time, especially when trying to get a Black or White one. Keep trying though, it’ll work eventually.
