How to Check Friendship
The first thing you’ll need to do is find Belamy in Jubilife Village. He’ll be standing next to the pastures fence and will offer a request. This side quest, called Friendship Checker, is how you unlock this feature. After you’ve completed request No. 7, you can bring any Pokemon to Belamy and they’ll tell you your compatibility with that specific Pokemon.
How to Increase Friendship
For this side quest and certain Pokemon evolutions, you’ll need to increase your friendship level. There are several way to raise your friendliness with a Pokemon. If you’re friendship farming to evolve a certain Pokemon, follow these methods. Here are the ways we’ve found.
- Exp Candy
You can get Exp. Candy from certain requests, farming Alpha Pokemon, or by buying them in Jubilife Village, if you’ve unlocked the candy stand. This method might be the easiest way if you have the funds but for many players this can be really expensive and not worth it. It might be better to use your time than money for this task.
- Gathering Materials
The best way to use your time to increase friendship is gathering materials. This means using that Pokemon to collect berries, minerals, ore, and other crafting materials found across Hisui. Pretty simple and low risk.
- Battling with the Pokemon in your party
Battling with the Pokemon in your party will increase it’s friendship level but you can also decrease your friendship level with this method so you must be careful. A Pokemon fainting will decrease it’s friendship with it’s trainer. To avoid this, battle in low level areas such as Obsidian Fieldlands or battle with the Pokemon in your party without bringing them out in battle. Bringing the Pokemon out in battle will increase it’s friendliness more but don’t do this if it’s too risky.
