Play time!


Playing with your main pokemon is a great way to keep them happy. You’ll find they bounce along beside you and offer surprises from time to time. To navigate your way to the play screen bring up the main menu by pressing x.

Once you’re at the main menu, you’ll find ‘Play with Pikachu’ at the centre of your screen. It’ harder to miss. Click on this and you’ll be taken to a new screen with a close up of your favourite Pokemon.

Click the top option on the left-hand side of your screen and the side menu will disappear. From here you can use the joy con to guide the hand icon over your Pokemon. The more attention you give them, the happier they will be.

However, make sure to pay attention to their facial expressions. If you’re not scratching the right spot they’ll quickly let you know about it. We recommend the cheeks and behind the ears for the best results.


Play with your pokemon regularly and feed them a razzberry or two. They’ll thank you for it with catchphrases and an occasional gift or three.
