  • Where is Mr Bonding?
  • Mega Stone of chosen Starter Pokemon buyable?
  • Does tipping people do anything?
  • What is the difference between Affection and Friendship, if any?
  • By what amount does the Masuda method increase the chance of breeding a Shiny?
  • What effects does Streetpass have with Pokemon X/Y?
  • Where can I find a light ball for Pikachu?
  • Which Pokemon do I need to trade between X & Y in order to Catch 'Em All?
  • What are the differences between Pokemon X and Pokemon Y?
  • Can the Snorlax you find on route 7 in pokemon X/Y be shiny?
  • How does the game determine what box a caught Pokemon will be sent to?

    Boosts Happiness

    • Walking 128 steps
    • Getting a massage (Cyllage City)
    • Using vitamins
    • Levelling up
    • Using EV berries
    • Soothe Bell (Shalour City)

    Reduces happiness

    • Fainting
    • Using bitter medicine

    Trading resets a Pokémon to its base happiness

    Here is the happiness page from Bulbapedia. It has not yet been updated for XY, but the boosts from Gen V have not altered.

    You can usually get a Pokémon to have it’s friendship raised in many ways really. Like, if you give your Pokémon vitamins like protein, carbos, etc.. You can also raise it’s friendship by letting it hold a soothe bell, walking around with it or just plain battling with it! Then if you level it up it might evolve! But beware! PokemonAmie does not raise your friendship, but it does raise chances of critical hits, evasion, and status moves such as endure. And stay away from letting it faint and feeding it herbs, hope I helped!

    You could also use the Befriending O-Power with soothe bell on your pokemon then ride around the prism tower in lumoise city to gain friendship fast

    Friendship is increased like it has been in previous generations: winning battles with your Pokemon, using items such as Potions on it, and just moving around with it in your party. Note you can lower happiness if the Pokemon faints or you use herbal medicines on it. Pokemon-Amie is rumored to increase happiness in small amounts, but this is not confirmed.

    According to my guide

    1. Pokemon Amie
    2. Travelling together
    3. Leveling up
    4. Use stat-boosting items
    5. Use items during battle (things like: X Accuracy, X Attack)
    6. Use a TM or HM
    7. Battling gym leaders
    8. Hold a soothe bell
    9. Get a massage in Cyllage City
    10. Use the befriending O-Power

    Easiest way I have found is the pink punching bags you get from super training.
