Weather is term to indicate an effect during a match.

The weather is shown at the top, along with a timer beneath it. During clear weather, the next predicted weather is displayed while the timer starts rising from 0 to 100. During this time, wallslamming or knocking down the opponent will change the next predicted weather, cycling through the set pattern listed below. Red crystals collected will increase the timer by 0.5, bringing on the next weather quicker. When the timer reaches 100, the weather changes to the indicated weather. During a weather affect, the timer will count down from 100 (50 or 75 for some) and will revert back to clear weather when the timer reaches zero. Red crystals collected will decrease the timer by 0.5, making the current weather shorter.

The Sword of Hisou system card manipulates the weather. During clear weather, using the card while the timer is above 50 will instantly change the weather to the one indicated. Using the card while the timer is below 50 will instantly change the weather to the next weather in the cycle after the one indicated. Using the card during an active weather will make the timer count down faster.

During clear weather, 1 second on the timer is 1/6th of a second in real-time, and during an active weather, 1 second on the timer is 1/3rd of a second in real-time. If nothing happens to affect the timer, clear weather lasts around 16.5 seconds and active weather lasts 33 seconds if the timer starts at 100.

Weather is disabled (clear weather) in Story Mode. Using the Sword of Hisou card will do nothing.
