Wii Games: Tricks and Tips

Updated on September 30, 2009

Everyone wants to win at Wii sporting games, right? Or, maybe it's not about winning at all. Maybe it's all about being in the top scores instead of bringing up the end.

Maybe you just want to learn some cool tricks. There are many tricks to beat Wii games, and here's a few tips and tricks you might want to try.


How To Throw A Curve Ball:

Hold down the 'A' button and pitch. Hold down the A and B buttons. This will throw a curve ball.

How to Throw A Fast Ball:

Hold down the 2 button to make the ball travel at 72 mph.

Pitching Tips:

Hold A and B buttons to throw a 'splitter' ball. This ball is difficult to hit and strikes out people because it's aimed at their feet.

How To Pitch Underhand:

Hold down the 2 button to throw an underhand ball. Switch back to pitching overhand by pressing the 1 button.

How To Get A Red Bat:

Hold the A, 1, and 2 buttons while the screen is loading, and your bat will turn red.

How To Throw A Strike-Out Pitch:

Hold down the 2 button, and the left or right button (not at the same time) to throw a strike-out ball. For instance, if you hold down the 2 button, the pitch will be low and harder for the batter to hit.


Alternate Court Color:

When you start a game of Tennis, or right after selecting the “Start Over' on the position select screen, hold down the 2 button; the tennis court will become blue. Before you start to play, just as the screen turns black, hold down the 2 until the screen disappears. The court will be the same as the one in the Returning the Ball (training mode). There will be no visible audience, but you will be able to hear them clap, cheer or boo.

Changing the Color of The Tennis Court:

If you want to change the tennis court to the blue practice court, press and hold down the 2 at the warning screen. This screen will appear after you have selected the characters.

How to Make a Power Shot:

When you serve, hit the ball at its highest point and quickly snap your wrist. A puff of white smoke will come from the ball, and it will be difficult for your opponent to hit or return the ball.

How To Watch A Tennis Match:

When you plan to play a tennis match, you need to chose how to play the game (such as best out of three). Choose to make all the characters unknown, then choose single match, and you can watch them play.

How To Deliver A Cross-Court Hit:

Holding down the “B” button will deliver a hard cross-court volley.


Swing the Wii remote up while you press down the B button. Swing the remote down and release the B button.

How To Change The Color of Your Bowling Ball:

When the screen fades to black for bowling, hold the control pad in the following positions to get the indicated bowling ball colors: Control Pad Up: Blue Ball, Control Pad Right: Gold Ball, Control Pad Left: Red Ball, Control Pad Down: Green Ball.

How To Get A Special Bowling Ball:

You must get to the pro-level to unlock the bowling ball that has diamond designs on it.

How to Amuse the Crowd When You Bowl:

You can make the crowd laugh. Move to either of the gutters in your lane, turn into the opposite lane, and bowl so that the ball goes over the barrier between the lanes. The ball will go into the gutter, in the opposite lane, and the crowd will laugh.

How To Throw Your Ball Down The Wrong Lane!

You can throw your ball on someone else's lane by holding the A button, and sliding as far to the right as you can. The ball will go down the lane aside yours.

How To Scare The Crowd:

Start the regular bowling motion, and let go of the ball on the back swing. The ball will fly backwards, and the crowd will jump and scream.

91 Pin Strike:

Note: This will work only on the last round of the game. You can get an automatic 91 pin strike in the last round of Power Bowling. Throw the ball on the right or left rail (depending if you're right or left handed), so that it stays on the rail. If the ball reaches the end of the rail without falling off, you will hear a “click” and an explosion. The shock wave will cause all the pins to fall down.


How To Play Wii Golf without Maps or Meters:

The power meter, map, and wind speed indicator can be disabled by pressing and holding the 2 button. Then make a selection at the “Select a Course” screen.


How To Win Every time:

Sway side to side, as if your were dodging. Swing when your opponent throws a slow-motion punch.

Good Boxing Skills:

Notice that your Wii hands are not attached? Punch towards your back. If this is done correctly Wii fist will go around your opponent and sock him (or her) right in the temple! Uppercuts and blows to the legs are excellent punches, too.

How To Get Silver Gloves:

Once you've beaten Matt (the Grand Champion) you will be able to wear silver boxing gloves. To get silver gloves, hold down the 1 button when the screen turns black before a boxing match.
