PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

Okay so I traded myself a Level 39 (grew a Level around Bugsy), Gabite in Heart Gold when I had no Badges and it would do absolutely nothing I told it to do. However once I started to walk around with it Gabite seemed to obey me more. I know he wasn't just obeying me because I had the right Badges. When I was still around Bugsy/Whitney he started doing more moves I told him to do. I'm not sure if he started to obey me because our friendship got higher or if I just got lucky. Thanks for helping, it's always appreciated :D!

No, it will not.

It only tells you how attached your Pokemon is to you and makes certain Pokemon evolve.

>It also affects the evolution of certain Pokémon, the power of Return and Frustration, and the availability of a few in-game items and Ribbons.

Also boosts the power of Return and Frustration. Maximum friendship maxes out Return's power, while minimum friendship maxes out Frustration's power.

The list of Pokemon that evolve through friendship is listed here. I won't type them all out because it is a long list, but some notable ones are:

  • Golbat -> Crobat
  • Pichu -> Pikachu
  • Eevee -> Espeon (daytime)
  • Eevee -> Umbreon (nighttime)

Hope I helped.

Raising your happiness does not do anything along the lines of traded Pokemon obeying you. All happiness does on Pokemon is
1. Make you feel good
2. Evolve some Pokemon
3. Improve or decrease the power in some moves
4. Help get you special items from trainers.
And here is an address which will tell you all about all the mechanics of happiness, I think. http://www.serebii.net/games/happiness.shtml

Thanks for your answer :)
