Pokémon Legends: Arceus introduces many new mechanics and changes to the Pokémon series, but it does retain some older ones. One mechanic that players will be familiar with is Friendship and Friendship Evolution. Those new to the series may be wondering how to increase Friendship in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
How to Raise Friendship in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
There are a couple of different ways. We have compiled a list of these methods below.
- Win battles with your Pokémon
- Use them to gather resources in the overworld
- Give them EXP candies
- Keep them healthy by healing them and curing status ailments
