That has to be the cutest Chesnaught I have ever seen. Now if you can find a way to make Bidoof look smart, you can color me impressed.

Pokémon is really starting to turn into Magic: The Gathering. What?! Okay, maybe the rules have not changed as much as Magic: The Gathering, but this is definitely not your parent’s Pokémon anymore. Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t look to my Pokémon for affection I look for them to knock their opponents the hell out! Simplier times…

    Don’t worry, Pokemon affection take no part (Not even the animation or extra dialogue) in Player vs Player matches.

      Unless you want a Sylveon or take advantage of the faster rate of experience growth provided by affection.

        Hence why I mentioned player vs player matches

        You can use the affection all you want but the extra effects such as enduring a hit, extra experience or critical strike will not apply in Player vs Player (Online) matches or Pokemon Tower (the consecutive NPC battles with set of rules). The only affection effect that will apply in those two is that which associated with the moves Return and Frustration

    I played Pokemon Red back in the day and now I started Pokemon Y.
    For almost 15 years I have not played this series, but the game instantly woke all the emotions I’ve had all those years before.

      A part of that is that they intentionally made some design choices to evoke nostalgia. Giving you a Gen 1 starter, making a forest laid out almost identically to Viridian Forest, a Snorlax blocking a path, making the EXP Share work in a similar, if much more powerful fashion to the Gen 1 EXP Share are all things that hit that nostalgia mark.
