In the games

Poké Puffs are used in Pokémon-Amie in order to raise the Affection of the player's Pokémon. The player may hold a maximum of 100 Poké Puffs. If the player already has 100 Poké Puffs, gaining any additional Poké Puffs will force the player to lose the first Poké Puffs in the inventory.

Poké Puffs can be obtained by playing minigames in Pokémon-Amie or as gifts from visitor Pokémon on the Pokémon-Amie screen.

Poké Puffs have more significant impacts on the Pokémon's Affection depending on the level of the Poké Puff.

Types of Poké Puff

Poké Puffs come in five flavors: Sweet, Mint, Citrus, Mocha, and Spice. These flavors are purely aesthetic and have no impact on the Affection gained by the Pokémon.

Level Flavors Affection
Basic           +2
Frosted           +3
Fancy           +4
Deluxe           +5

Poké Puffs also come in a rarer fifth variant, Supreme, which has special flavors. These come in two varieties, obtained in different ways. The seasonal varieties are obtained after scoring 5 stars on an Unlimited mini-game. The remaining two are left by visitors to the player's Pokémon-Amie space after special events.

Poké Puff Affection Location
  Supreme Spring +6 From any Unlimited Pokémon-Amie minigame
  Supreme Summer +6 From Unlimited Head It
  Supreme Autumn +6 From Unlimited Berry Picker
  Supreme Winter +6 From Unlimited Tile Puzzle
  Supreme Wish +10 From visitors on the player's birthday
  Supreme Honor +10 From visitors after entering the Hall of Fame

Feeding Poké Puffs

Pokémon can be fed Poké Puffs to increase their Affection, and as a consequence this also increases their Fullness. Certain Pokémon cannot eat Poké Puffs.

When a Pokémon is fed a Poké Puff, a number of hearts will float above it, corresponding to the number of points that were added to its Affection. If fullness is below 198 points when a Pokémon is fed a Poké Puff, it will take either two, three, or five quick bites (depending on the Pokémon's species); if its fullness is 198 to 213 points, it will slow down for either the third or fourth bite (Pokémon that eat Poké Puffs in two bites will not slow down in this range); and if its fullness is above 213 points, it will take all of its bites slowly. At 255 fullness, the Pokémon will turn away if offered another Poké Puff.

If the player does not feed the Pokémon the whole Poké Puff, it will not gain any Affection, but it will still gain Fullness. Each bite adds 10, 16 or 24 to its Fullness depending on whether the Pokémon would normally eat it in five, three or two bites. If the player brings out a Poké Puff and drops it, the Pokémon will either react with anger, sadness, or confusion.

Feeding a Pokémon a whole Poké Puff increases its Fullness by 50, and its Affection by the values listed above.

Pokémon-Amie visitors

Main article: Pokémon-Amie → Visitors

While the player is viewing Pokémon-Amie, Pokémon from recorded Friends, Acquaintances, and Passersby in the Player Search System will visit the player's Pokémon-Amie space. One by one, Pokémon will enter the player's space and decide whether they want to stay for a while or move on. When three Pokémon have decided to stay, they will start a discussion amongst themselves, and, 30 seconds later, they will leave a gift and depart. These gifts may be Poké Puffs or Décor items.

Poké Puffs may be set out to entice visitors to stop by in Pokémon-Amie's decorate mode. The level of the Poké Puff that is set out raises the minimum quality of gift that visitors will leave, which simultaneously decreases the amount of Affection needed to reach the highest quality gifts. Higher level Poké Puffs will also last through multiple groups of visitors and increase the chance that individual visitors will decide to stay.

The table below describes the effects of different types of Poké Puffs.

Poké Puff Stay chance* Duration Minimum set /
Poké Puff
None 50% A / basic
Basic 65% 1
Frosted 80% 2
Fancy 90% 3
Deluxe 95% 4 B / Frosted
Supreme seasonal 100% 5 C / Fancy
Supreme Wish/Honor 100% 7 D / Deluxe

There are also special conditions, however, that, if met, will cause visitors to select their gift from a special set.

  • If all visitors are from the same family: the item will always be random. This is not restricted by the Poké Puff set out.
  • If all visitors share a type (and are not all from the same family): the item will always be a Décor item from a specific set.

In the anime, Poké Puffs were first featured in A Battle by Any Other Name!, where Serena was seen making some for her friends and their Pokémon. She soon met a girl named Miette, who was also an excellent Poké Puff maker. They competed against each other in the Poké Puff Contest; however, both of them ended up losing to the Berrybaker kids.

Serena also served some self-made Poké Puffs for Pikachu, Dedenne, and Korrina's Lucario in Mega Revelations!.

Serena offered some of her Poké Puffs to Fennekin, Pikachu, Froakie, Chespin, Tierno's Squirtle, and Shauna's Bulbasaur in Summer of Discovery!. Although Bulbasaur refused to take anything from anyone else but Shauna, and showed little to no expressions, it still liked Serena's bakings.

Various people at the Pokémon Summer Camp, including Serena and Bonnie, were seen baking some Poké Puffs to be used in their respective Pokévision videos in Day Three Blockbusters!. Serena's Poké Puffs were later seen in Team Froakie's own video.

Poké Puffs made by Serena were served for the group's Pokémon in Rivals: Today and Tomorrow!. Sawyer's Treecko also tasted the treats, and found them extremely delicious.

Poké Puff Baking was the theme selected for the first round of the Dendemille Town Pokémon Showcase Rookie Class in Performing with Fiery Charm!. Performers and their Pokémon had to bake Poké Puffs in order to advance to the Freestyle Performance. The Poké Puffs were evaluated by Santo's Mime Jr., Gena's Jigglypuff, and Delilah's Furfrou.

Serena also baked special donut-shaped Poké Puffs in Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, which she shared with Ash, Clemont, Bonnie, and their Pokémon.

In A Frolicking Find in the Flowers!, Ash and his friends used some Poké Puffs in order to lure out a timid Eevee. While this did work, only Bunnelby noticed Eevee taking the Poké Puff bait, and decided to let Eevee go, leading to Clemont and Bonnie falsely accusing Chespin for eating the Poké Puff.

Ash and his friends' Pokémon were seen eating some Poké Puffs made by Serena in From A to Z!.

In A Dancing Debut!, the theme used during the first round of the Couriway Showcase Rookie Class was once again related to Poké Puffs. This time, however, Performers and their Pokémon had to perform a dance routine while preparing the dessert. Additionally, there were no professional judges evaluating the Poké Puffs, as the contestants were judged by the audience members through their Glow Casters.

In Master Class Choices!, Serena offered a Poké Puff to her Sylveon between her first and second round performances in the Fleurrh City Showcase in order to help it get over its performance anxiety.

In Battle Three With Bea!, Korrina brought some Poké Puffs for herself, Ash, Goh, Bea, and their Pokémon to eat.

Poké Puffs were first seen in An X-cuse to Come Out and Play, where Y fed one to her Fletchling.

In Sylveon Enchants, Y sought to befriend her newly caught Eevee, Veevee, quickly using several features of Pokémon-Amie to raise its Affection, including Poké Puffs. Her efforts paid off as Veevee evolved into Sylveon during Y's battle with two Team Flare Grunts.
