* At Affection level 5 and higher, a Pokémon has a higher chance of [[critical hit]]s.
There are some cases where Pokémon do not get their Affection bonuses, however. This includes if a Pokémon Mega Evolves, during
wireless or online battles, and at the [[Battle Maison]] or [[Battle Institute]].
A high Affection also affects many of the standard battle dialogues.
