Affection is an in-game mechanic that indicates how affectionate a Pokémon is to its owner. Affection is a value from 0-255 and can be viewed on a Pokémon's summary in the Contest section. Affection is commonly confused with Happiness.
EvolutionAffection is one of many factors that influences a Pokémon's Evolution.
Currently, there are only 2 Pokémon that require Affection as an Evolution requirement:
- Eevee evolves into Sylveon with Max Affection.
- Rockruff evolves into Lycanroc [Dusk Forme] at Level 25 during Dusk with high Affection.
Affection is also a potential factor in determining the results of Breeding. Certain Pokémon may produce different Eggs when at maximum Affection. Currently, there is only one circumstance in which Affection influences the results of Breeding. In order to breed Kinaster, the parent Lunupine and Solynx must be maximum Affection.
Affection can be raised through the use of the following Consumables. Perfect berries can only be fed to a Pokemon that like the flavour. If the user attempts to feed a Perfect Berry to a Pokemon with a different taste preference, the item will not be consumed.
The Big Malasada can be fed to any Pokémon.
