The eponymous feature of Pokémon Refresh is the option for the player to care for their Pokémon after battle. There are five different ways to care for Pokémon: using medicine, a comb, a brush, a towel, or a dryer. Caring for a Pokémon increases its Affectionaffection.
During a battle with a wild Pokémon or Trainer, there are four ways the player's Pokémon can become dirty, each requiring a different tool to clean it up.
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 Affectionaffection—shown by hearts that appear over its head—as well as its Enjoymentenjoyment, but if its Enjoymentenjoyment reaches its maximum, no Affectionaffection will be gained. Petting a Pokémon in a spot it dislikes also will not increase Affectionaffection. Initially, when a Pokémon has 0 Affectionaffection, however, all pettable spots on its body are treated as neutral spots. Rapidly tapping the screen in succession may also hit the Pokémon, which causes an angry reaction but does not affect its stats.
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 favorable spot or petted altogether.
The player can also use the touch screen to high five certain Pokémon. 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 Affectionaffection.
[[File:Pokémon Refresh Feeding.png|thumb|250px|Feeding a Poké Bean to Pikachu]]
[[Poké Bean]]s are a specialty in the [[Alola]] [[region]] that can be fed to {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} to increase their Affectionaffection, as well as their Fullnessfullness. There are three different types of Poké Beans: Plain Beans, Patterned Beans, and Rainbow Beans.
Unlike Pokémon-Amie, Poké Beans cannot be obtained within the feature as [[Poké Puff]]s were, being obtainable primarily through [[Poké Pelago]]. The player can also gain 12 Plain Beans from [[Pokémon Center Café]]s alongside the first beverage the player orders daily, with the day of the week determining the color of the Plain Beans that are received. Up to 255 Poké Beans of each type can be held at once.
Pokémon Refresh uses the same three stats that Pokémon-Amie introduced: Affectionaffection, Fullnessfullness, and Enjoymentenjoyment. The latter two stats limit how much the player can do to increase the Pokémon's Affectionaffection. High levels of Affectionaffection can grant Pokémon special benefits in battle.
These stats have point values ranging from 0 to 255, but Pokémon Refresh shows these values as abstracted levels. The table below summarizes the minimum number of points required for each level.
There are ways a couple of these stats' values can be inferred. At high Fullnessfullness, a Pokémon will eat a Poké Bean more slowly than normal. At every new level of Affectionaffection except for the first, and at the midpoint of level 4 (200 points), the Pokémon will also act out a special animation with many sparkles and hearts.
===Affecting stats===
{{incomplete|section|Mythic Malasada}}
When petting the same Pokémon in Pokémon Refresh, the game will keep track of the number of times the player has pet the Pokémon and gradually increase the time required to successfully pet it. After three pettings, this also changes the effect of petting the Pokémon in a favored spot. This counter only resets by switching between petting a favored and a neutral spot, viewing the switch screen, or leaving Pokémon Refresh; it is also ignored entirely if petting the Pokémon in a disfavored spot.

===Affection benefits===
{{main|Affection#Affection benefits|Affection → Affection benefits}}
A Pokémon with high levels of Affectionaffection will gain certain bonuses in battle and will interact with its Trainer in unique ways.
* At Affectionaffection level 2 and higher, a Pokémon will gain 1.2 times the normal experience from battles.
* At Affectionaffection level 3 and higher, a Pokémon may endure attacks that could otherwise make it [[Fainting|faint]] and survive with 1 HP (including {{status|confusion}} damage). This can activate multiple times per turn.
* At Affectionaffection level 4 and higher, a Pokémon can sometimes:
** {{stat|evasion|Avoid attacks}}, even when they have 100% accuracy. This can activate multiple times per turn.
** Shake off [[status condition]]s at the end of the turn.
* At Affectionaffection level 5 and higher, a Pokémon has a higher chance of [[critical hit]]s.
There are some cases where Pokémon do not get their Affectionaffection bonuses, however. This includes if a Pokémon Mega Evolves, during link battles, and at the [[Battle Tree]].
A high Affectionaffection also affects many of the standard battle dialogues.
