I can't even get the shield to equip much less the bottles. I have no trouble on the slingshot, blower or whip -those all work normally.

Could I get a basic step by step instruction for this? I replaced the new motion controller because I thought it had a problem. Second motion controller works the same. I have one of the first Wiis to come out.


For bottles and shields, use the - button to equip them, not B like you do for the various tools like the slingshot and whip. But the process is the same; hold -, point at the thing you want, then release - and Link will get out whatever you pointed at (well, not medals or extra seed/bomb/arrow bags, they just take up space). Press A to drink from a bottle once Link has it out.
