What Are Partner Powers

Last Updated:
Another New concept introduced within this game is that of Partner Powers, and as the name might suggest, these have more to do with your Starter Partner Pokemon than any other Pokemon you might own. You see, while in battle during your journey, there is a chance that an icon of Pikachu and a JoyCon will randomly appear. By shaking the JoyCon you are using to play the game with, a Partner Power will be activated. The higher your Pikachu has Happiness towards your trainer, the greater the likelihood Partner Powers will appear.

If you activate a Partner Power when your Starter Partner Pikachu is in battle, it will unleash an attack called Pika Papow that has a Base Power that varies depending on its level of Happiness it has with your trainer. When at maximum happiness, this attack will have a Base Power of 102. If you don't have your Starter Partner Pokemon in battle when a Partner Power is activated, the Pokemon you do have on the battlefield will receive a boost to each of its Stats by one stage.
