Let's use Light monsters from the beginning

Here is a list of Light-attribute monsters that are easy to get and available from the early stage of the game. Build a deck that contains those monsters and summon them as much as you can even in the initial phase. See also the following 2 tricks:

  • Do not set, flip summon, or special summon them. It is said that only normal summon is applicable although that is unconfirmed.
  • If your Monster Zone is full with LIGHT monsters, conduct tribute summon. Or switch their battle position to defense, then standard duelists will attack your monster that have low DEF, and you can summon the next one.

How to increase Life Points

Set LP Boost skills to your deck and use cards that regenerate your Life Points to complete one of Ishizu unlock missions, win a Duel against Ishizu with at least 6000 LP remaining. Joey, Tea, and Mai can acquire LP Boost skills by leveling up, and other also can acquire them as drop (duel reward) skill.

how to unlock her , i've summoned over 400 light monsters , but she's nothing appears
anoymous 2days ago
Just unlocked her recently. maybe you think you have summoned that much, but really isnt. You have enough light monsters in deck? I use Yugi with power of dark and Rogue Dolls (Pegasus), Element Magicians, and The Stern Mystic - these monsters are spellcasters and are from light element, didnt take me long to unlock her by using them.

I've been farming with Cerberus so much you think I would have unlocked her mission by now, but I've made a deck with light monster to try and unlock her but I can't even find where I can see if I'm close to 200 or not

I use Yami Yugi with a couple of light monsters and I manage to unlock her. I have Rogue Dolls (Pegasus), Element Magicians, and The Stern Mystic - these monsters are spellcasters and are from light element, didnt take me long to unlock her by playing this style

Nate dog 9days ago
I haven't triggered her in the past 2days either
Wambus 12days ago
Update: she just unlocked for me after I sent a message to the powers that be, so I don't know if they did it for me manually or if something changed. Best of luck!
Wambus 12days ago
Nope. I've been spamming a 20 LIGHT monster deck with tribute summons against LV 10 Gate duel legends for the last 3 days to no avail. Really hoping they fix it soon. :(
Noble 17days ago
Started new at 12am and summoned over 400 light atribute monsters until 3am then realized ishizu should have triggered but she didn'the. So now I'm posting the deck i used so someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Noble 17days ago
Hopefully it will trigger when they fix this issue.It sucks that it won't trigger. Let's just hope I didn't waste my time.

Does legendary duels at gate counts?
dude 15days ago
I don't think it counts. I unlocked it by doing standard duels.

Mission is bugged plase fix this
Zaramos 1/1/1970
Ok guys,
I was as desprate as some of you are to get this b*tch unlocked. I started with a deck full of light monsters. Did like 300-400 summons. NOTHING happened. Then I read that you have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times. I switched to a normal beatdown deck with 3 Summoners (search for Guardian) and 1 Guardian (normal light 1650ATK). I did like 15 duels against Standart Duelists summoning the Guardian nearly every time.
Suddenly Ishizu unlocked!
So i can tell that you dont have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times, at least not the same one, cause i didnt. Also it does not make a difference if you play effect or normal monsters. The only thing i am unsure of is if Tributing counts. In my case i think it didnt, so i ended up having 190 or so summons without tributing included when i switched to the "normal" deck.
This was by far the worst thing to unlock and do in the whole game. So i hope it might help some people.
Maybe she is simply bugged and glitched as hell and you never know when you will unlock her. (also possible)
Nate dog 9days ago
What kind of beat down deck
anoymous 1/1/1970
Most players I knew unlocked her without actually trying to go for it. It was like a gentle breeze passing by through your face, you didn't realize it was already there.
anoymous 1/1/1970
The other day I unlocked Ishizu but I don't know how. It says here that I need 200 light-monster summons, but my current deck is composed of different attributes, and mainly composed of dragons.
DiamondWing 1/1/1970
vylon ohm has 200 defence, not 1200
anoymous 17days ago
It says 200
Tquinze 1/1/1970
I'm not sure, but I don't think legendary duels count. I'm using a fairy/light deck only in legendary duels and I haven't got her. I have counted at least a hundred normal-summoned light-monsters in the last 10 duels. I've got at least 110 duels with Tea and this deck. Even in the profile, it's look like I'm only using dark monsters (the deck that I'm using in standard duels). I thought about 2 possibilities: they cannot been sent to cemitery or legendary duels don't count. Any help?
Tquinze 1/1/1970
Well... I got her after all. I changed all my light effect monsters for light normal monsters. I unlocked her some duels after that.
Hattran 1/1/1970
I summonig the Elementan Dragon 173 times and the Ancient Dragon 200 times and don't get her
Eevee 1/1/1970
How do you see the amount of invocations?
Hakase 1/1/1970
Does ritual summoning skull guardian counts?
anoymous 1/1/1970
I've summoned 300 of one light monster (Kaiser Sea Horse) and still haven't gotten her...
Jeager 1/1/1970
I've summoned guardian of the throne room 401 times and ishizu still doesnt came too
Rinsama 1/1/1970
Same here
Anon8592 1/1/1970
I got it just fine by doing auto fight against standard duelist using light attribute monsters + traps deck. (since I aim to unlock odion and isthar at the time, both been unlocked now)
Nate dog 10days ago
How u do that
anoymous 1/1/1970
I'm honestly at my wits end with this character. I've used nothing but a light monster deck on low level legendary characters in the gate. Normal/tribute summoned over 300 monsters, spent well over 500 gate keys and even went from level 27-30 on Mako trying to unlock her so I can move on to the next stage.
anoymous 1/1/1970
Finally unlocked her. I started at just around 2500 normal summons, and ended at over 3000. It's a possibility that tribute summons don't count? As other than that, I was purely normal summoning 4 star light cards.
