What Are Poké Puffs?

Poké Puffs are treats that you can feed your Pokémon in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y through Pokémon-Amie.

Poké Puffs play an important role in raising your Pokémon's affection for you.

How to Feed Your Pokémon

To feed your Pokémon Poké Puffs, your first must open Pokémon-Amie through your 3DS. Do this by finding Pokémon-Amie in the bottom screen of the Pokemon X or Y game.

  • Click on the Pokémon of your choice and a menu will pop up. You will see three options: Decorate, Play, and Switch. To feed your Pokémon, you must click on "Play."
  • You will be brought to a different screen and your Pokemon will be there waiting for you. Poke your Pokémon and three buttons will pop up on the screen: a Poké Puff, a music note, and a Pokéball. To feed your Pokémon, click on the Poké Puff in the top left corner.
  • You will now have the option to choose a Poké Puff to feed to your Pokémon. Push and drag the chosen Poké Puff to your Pokémon's mouth and your Pokémon will delightfully (or not so delightfully) eat it depending on its fullness.

Note: When feeding your Pokémon a Poké Puff, do not lift your finger or stylus from the screen. Lifting your finger or stylus from the screen will result in a dropped and forever lost Poké Puff, and you will have a very disappointed Pokémon.

Where Are Poké Puffs Obtained?

Poké Puffs can be acquired by playing minigames in Pokémon-Amie. Poke Puffs are awarded based on how well you do in your minigame and depending on how many stars you receive.

Different types of Poké Puffs will be awarded depending on how many stars you receive after the minigame. The more stars you get, the better Poké Puffs you'll receive.

Poke Puffs can also be obtained by keeping the Pokémon-Amie window open during gameplay. Pokémon from other players will come to play with your Pokémon and will leave gifts for you ranging from objects to more Poké Puffs.

Poké Puffs for Other Pokémon

Besides using Poké Puffs to feed your Pokémon to raise affection, you can use them to attract other Pokémon to get more.

To do this, click on your Pokémon again in the game menu of Pokémon-Amie and the menu will pop up: Decorate, Play, and Switch.

Click on "Decorate" this time and then at the bottom of the screen. You'll see "Interior Items" and "Poke Puffs." Click on "Poké Puffs" and then choose which one you want to give to the other Pokémon.

The Poké Puff will appear in the middle of your Pokémon's house for the other one to eat.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What if my Pokémon refuses to eat any Poké Puffs?

If your Pokémon refuses to eat them, it could be because they are full. Don't worry though, if you want to save your Poké Puff, just drag it back into the Poké Puff menu.
