Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why does my Pokemon do a little shuffle on entry?

0 votes

at the start of the battle I throw out my Pokémon, it does it's cry, and just before I can select a move, it 'shuffles' on the spot. Heliolisk and Greninja do it, and it's in the rain. I've also spent some time in amie and super training. Do any of these things have an influence?

This is because of your Pokemon's Affection in Pokemon-Amie. If your Pokemon are doing a small shake when they enter battle, it is because they have 2 Affection (the hearts in Pokemon-Amie).

This is just a little animation and doesn't do anything significant in battle; however, the two hearts will also give your Pokemon a 1.2x boost to their experience according to Bulbapedia. Higher Affection will give you more little bonuses.

You basically said what I said
There was a three minute difference lol. I was typing this at the same time as you were, you just happened to post it before I did.
Oh and btw, you edited in the experience thing two minutes after I posted my answer, which makes me think you copied info from my answer. If that's the case, then you're the one who is at fault.
I didn't copy your answer.i was looking through the pokemon amie section in bulbapedia and thought that i should add that part.I saw your one after i added cuz my computer didn't reload when you answered.

This happens due to high affection in Pokemon Amie(2 or 3 hearts). It's not related with Super training.There are a few other benefits to Pokemon Amie such as getting critical hits more often,enduring OHKOs,giving a boost in experience etc
