You might even find something rare!||The Friendship Checker shows how close you’ve grown with your Pokémon—the more hearts there are, the closer they feel to you.|
Have fun with your Pokémon in Amity Square!

Adjust the camera angle and zoom level, then press the Nintendo Switch’s Capture Button, or press and hold the Capture Button to record video.
