Depending on how well-matched a pair of [[Warrior]] and Pokémon is, the maximum value of the link between the two varies. Maximum link values are signified by bronze, silver, and gold symbols; the latter signifying a maximum link percentage of 90% or higher. A '''Perfect Link''' (Japanese: '''ベストリンク''' ''Best Link'') is a maximum link value of 100%. Each Warrior has specific Pokémon with which they
can achieve a Perfect Link. When a Pokémon is paired with a [[Warlord]] with whom it shares a Perfect Link, it will have several sprites showing different emotions<!--term used in the game-->, as opposed to a single, universal sprite.
