Does friendship affect the fighting of a pokemon in the slightest?

I mean in the anime basically when they believe in their pokemon, they fight better

Yeah in the anime its a big difference. But in the games it only affects fighting if you use Return (higher power w/ higher happiness) or Frustration (higher power w/ lower happiness).

But in real life that won't do anything
