Features: showing that it's not just Ground moves that require towel and that a gen 7 exclusive group can high five
* Comb: cleanly grooms a Pokémon. A Pokémon may randomly need grooming after a battle after performing an offensive move, the chance of which may increase with longer battles. Specific moves such as {{m|Darkest Lariat}} that are used by the player's Pokémon always result in the Pokémon requiring combing after the battle.
* Brush: dusts off sand the Pokémon picks up from using or being hit by moves like {{m|Sand Attack}}, {{m|Bulldoze}}, and {{m|Rototiller}}. Pokémon that battle in a {{weather|sandstorm}} also can be brushed after battle.
* Towel: wipes away dirt the Pokémon picks up from using or being hit by certain moves, like {{m|Mud-Slap}}, {{m|Mud Sport}}, or {{m|DigSludge Wave}}.
* Dryer: dries out a Pokémon that has been hit by or used a move like {{m|Water Gun}} or {{m|Icicle Spear}}. Also dries Pokémon after a battle in the [[rain]]. Many {{type|Water}} Pokémon do not need drying.
The player may pet their Pokémon by using the touch screen to rub it. All Pokémon that can be petted have places where they especially like being petted and places where they dislike it. Petting a Pokémon increases its Affection—shown by hearts that appear over its head—as well as its Enjoyment, but if its Enjoyment reaches its maximum, no Affection will be gained. Petting a Pokémon in a spot it dislikes also will not increase Affection. Initially, when a Pokémon has 0 Affection, however, all pettable spots on its body are treated as neutral spots.
Some Pokémon also have special effects on parts of their body, such as a slimy body or a sharp edge. Some of these are mainly aesthetic effects, while others may temporarily prevent the player from petting the Pokémon in reaction. Several Pokémon may have their entire bodies produce these effects, either preventing them from being petted in a favourablefavorable spot or petted altogether.
The player can also use the touch screen to high five certain Pokémon, such as the [[starter Pokémon]] and [[Eeveelution|Eeveeguardian and its evolutionsdeities]]. This is done by holding the stylus on a spot away from the Pokémon's body for approximately five seconds, as long as the Pokémon also has at least 5 points of Affection. Rapidly tapping the screen in succession may also hit the Pokémon, which causes an angry reaction but does not affect its stats.
