'''Friendship''' (Japanese: '''なつき{{tt|度|ど}}''' ''degree of emotional attachment''), also referred to as '''loyalty''' in [[Generation II]] core series games, '''tame''' in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] and '''friendliness''' in [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]], and commonly referred to by fans as '''happiness''', is a measurement of how much a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} is attached to its {{pkmn|Trainer}} and enjoys being in their care.
 
Friendship was introduced in {{game|Yellow}} for the {{player}}'s {{ga|Red's Pikachu|starter Pikachu}} only, and expanded to cover all Pokémon in [[Generation II]].
 
Friendship is not the same as [[Affection]], a stat introduced in [[Generation VI]]. However, in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], the two appear to have been combined, since Affection does not exist in the game, but Pokémon with high friendship gain the same benefits as those that have high affection in other games.
 
==In the core series games==
Friendship debuted in [[Generation I]] as a mechanic that applied only to the {{player}}'s {{p|Pikachu}} in {{game|Yellow}}. In [[Generation II]], it was expanded to cover all Pokémon. In all games, friendship is a value that ranges from 0 to 255 (stored as a single byte). In Pokémon Yellow, Pikachu's friendship is indicated by the expression it shows when the player talks to it, but in later games, [[#Raters|certain NPCs]] in the games will evaluate the friendship of a Pokémon in the player's [[party]].
 
A Pokémon's friendship is generally set when the player first obtains it. When a Pokémon is first caught from the wild, its friendship starts at its [[List of Pokémon by base friendship|base friendship]] value. Trading a Pokémon also resets its friendship to its base value, unless it is being traded back to its [[original Trainer]] in [[Generation VI]] or later, in which case it regains the friendship it had before being traded away. A Pokémon caught in a {{ball|[[Friend}} Ball]] starts with 200 friendship instead of its base friendship, while a Pokémon hatched from an {{pkmn|Egg}} starts with 120 friendship.
 
Friendship is generally increased by taking good care of a Pokémon. Keeping a Pokémon in the player's party, raising it, using items on it, and getting it [[Pokémon groomer|groomed]] will all increase a Pokémon's friendship. Letting it faint and using bitter [[herbal medicine]]s on it will decrease a Pokémon's friendship.
In {{game|Crystal}}, if a Pokémon is leveled up at its met location, it will gain twice as much friendship from that level up as usual. Since only Pokémon caught in Pokémon Crystal have a defined met location, Pokémon caught in the [[Generation I]] games, {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, and Pokémon from [[in-game trade]]s will not receive this bonus. If a Pokémon that has a defined met location is traded to a Generation I game, this data is permanently erased, so it can no longer receive this bonus.
 
Starting in Generation III, if a Pokémon was caught in a {{ball|[[Luxury}} Ball]] or is currently at the same location where it was {{pkmn2|caught}} (its met location), any increase to its friendship is boosted by an extra point (two points if both apply). If a Pokémon is holding a [[Soothe Bell]], increases to its friendship are boosted by 50% of the change. In Generation III, Soothe Bell applies directly to the original change in friendship, while in later games, it applies to the the friendship change after including Luxury Ball and met location bonuses. In Generation IV, being at its met location does not change the amount of friendship a Pokémon gains, but it does from Generation V onward.
 
In Generation V, the Befriending Power [[Pass Power]] boosts any increase to friendship by one to three points depending on the strength of the power used. In Generation VI, the Befriending Power [[O-Power]] has the same effect. Befriending Power does not exist in [[Generation VII]].
 
===Mechanics using friendship===
{{incomplete|section|needs=Double-check whether the Draco Meteor Move Tutors in BW, B2W2, and XY require high friendship or not}}
In Pokémon Yellow, friendship affected very little beyond the reactions Pikachu would show when interacted with.
 
From [[Generation IV]] onward, there is a [[Ribbon]] for Pokémon with maximum friendship, the {{DL|List of Ribbons in the games|Footprint Ribbon}}.
 
Some NPCs also only give gifts or [[Move Tutor|teach moves]] when the player's Pokémon has a certain amount of friendship.<!--Maybe should be listed. I think the Soothe Bell and Lucky Egg are a couple (sometimes?).--> In particular, a Pokémon must have maximized friendship to learn {{m|Draco Meteor}} in [[Generation IV]], [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]], and [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]], or to learn {{m|Frenzy Plant}}, {{m|Blast Burn}}, {{m|Hydro Cannon}}, {{m|Grass Pledge}}, {{m|Fire Pledge}}, or {{m|Water Pledge}} in any generation.
 
===In Generation I===
 
===In Generation II===
In [[Generation II]], friendship was expanded to cover all Pokémon. All Pokémon have a [[List of Pokémon by base friendship|base friendship]] of 70, but any Pokémon caught in a {{ball|[[Friend}} Ball]] starts with 200 friendship and any Pokémon hatched from an {{pkmn|Egg}} starts with 120 friendship.
 
In {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, [[#Gold, Silver, and Crystal|an NPC]] who will evaluate the friendship of the first Pokémon in the player's [[party]] can be found at [[Goldenrod City]].

===In Generation III===
In [[Generation III]], different [[Pokémon (species)|species]] of Pokémon were given individualized [[List of Pokémon by base friendship|base friendship]] values. The [[Poké Ball#Luxury Ball|Luxury Ball]] and [[Soothe Bell]] boosts were also introduced.
 
In {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, [[#Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald|an NPC]] who will evaluate the friendship of the first Pokémon in the player's [[party]] can be found at [[Verdanturf Town]]. In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, [[Daisy Oak]] will perform the [[#FireRed and LeafGreen|same service]] in [[Pallet Town]]. In addition, in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the degree to which a Pokémon moves towards the screen after an item is used on it will also indicate how high its friendship is.

====Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!====
{{incomplete|section|How to raise friendship (ie walking or feeding candy) and friendship benefits (ie those seen with affection)}}
In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], friendship is factored into all of a Pokémon's stats, except HP. At maximum friendship, a Pokémon will receive a 10% boost to its stats, before [[awakening values|AVs]] are added in. The friendship multiplier scales directly with the level of friendship, starting from a 0% boost at 0 friendship to receiving the full 10% at 255.
 
===Evolutions===
Several {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} [[Evolution|evolve]] after being [[level]]ed up when their friendship value is 220 or higher.

Friendship also has an effect in the second game of the [[Pokémon Ranger]] series. [[{{ra|Partner Pokémon]]}} can have the condition of ''Fine'', ''Happy'', or ''Very Happy''. When it is in a ''Happy Mood'', black musical notes appear to come out of it. Multicolored musical notes come out when it is ''Very Happy''. This may happen whether or not it is with the {{player}}. This state of mind increases the speed the Partner Gauge fills up due to more Partner Energy being provided.
