I battle my brother regularly and I've always wondered how these moves work. because your Pokemon never crit with the hearts or dodge or shrug off poison in these battles, so are they full power, or normal power (how they would be in a overworld battle)?

You're confusing Affection and Friendship, they're two different mechanics in Gen 7. Affection boosts don't transfer into online battles, as they're just too good to be allowed. Friendship levels boost the power of Return and Frustration, not Affection.

Friendship
Affection

Hope I helped!

sooo in a link battle it would be just like the overworld?
In link battles, the Affection boosts don't take effect.
Thanks!
No problem!
