If this happens, try taking your Skylanders toy off the Portal of Power and then replacing it. If your Skylander remains stuck, you will have to restart the level.
No. A Skylander’s Elemental Strength depends on how many Skylanders of the same element are stored in the Skylanders Collection menu. A friend’s version of the game might have a different number of elemental Skylanders stored, resulting in a different Elemental Strength. When you bring your Skylander back to your version of the game, their Elemental Strength will return to what it was.
If you can’t access a character’s specific content, it means that you haven’t taken ownership of the Skylander. Go to the Skylander Management screens within the game and use the “ownership” controls to take official ownership of the toy.
Skylanders does not continually save your position as you progress through the game. The game only saves at the following points:
The game uses your console country setting to determine the language used. Make sure you have set your console to your home country in order to have the game play in your language.
Skylanders at max level cannot collect a level-up token. Use a Skylander that isn’t at maximum level.
This can happen when there are too many Chompies on the screen. If it does happen, you will need to restart the level. To avoid it, be sure and kill all of the non-purple Chompies as quickly as possible during the level.
