Picnic

Picnics are the return of a similar feature from prior Pokémon games. Here, any time you are in Paldea, you can set up a Picnic to send out your Pokémon, and if friends are playing, their Pokémon too. Here, you can do a variety of things to increase various bonuses for your Pokémon, including increasing its friendship above certain levels, and it is the only way to do so.

First, you have the ability to take photos with your Pokémon and alter it with various stickers and filters.

Playing

When they are out in the field, you have the ability to play with your Pokémon by interacting with them. Doing so will cause their bond to grow with you, increasing their friendship with you. Sometimes, if you have two compatible Pokémon out with you, then you may even receive an Egg, this can even work if it's between your friend's Pokémon and yours

Cleaning

You also have the ability to clean your Pokémon. Doing so will restore their Hit Points as well as give a friendship boost

Customisation

You also have the ability to customise your picnic. In various stores across Paldea, you can purchase a variety of items to customise your Picnic area to make it more akin to how you desire. This allows you to customise the cup, bottle, plates and tablecloth of your picnic, as well as the ball that you use to play with your Pokémon
