Like previous secondary features, Pokémon Amie has a few ways to track the progress of your Pokémon. There are three stats, each measured by five icons to deterine how well they have been trained in that field:
- Affection: Determines how happy your Pokémon is with you
- Fullness: Determines how many Poké Beans your Pokémon need to be fed
- Enjoyment: Determines how much your Pokémon has been played with
Each value can be altered slightly by participating in certain things. Enjoyment and hunger will gradually go down, while affection will remain for as long as you own the Pokémon. When you trade the Pokémon, if it's not traded back in the same day, it will lose the affection.
To get the Affection stat up, which is the most important stat, you can do a variety of things including petting and feeding the Pokémon. This will increase the stat by a little amount. Each value is denoted by the small hearts that come out of the Pokémon whenever you feed or play with it. The ranking goes as follows
||Small Hearts Required
Petting your Pokémon will give between 3 and 5 hearts, while feeding them will give a varied amount of hearts depending on the type of Poké Bean. Poké Beans can be obtained predominantly from the Poké Pelago but you may also get them randomly from Café owners. After you have fed your Pokémon a multiple of 10 Poké Beans, the café owners in Alola will also give you a Rare Candy!.
When a Pokémon is at max hearts, take it to Malie City's Community Center to get the Best Friends Ribbon.
