These are extra-special moves that only your partner Pikachu or Eevee can perform. Occasionally, you may notice an icon of Pikachu or Eevee hugging a Joy-Con above the “Fight” button. When this icon appears, you can shake the Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus to trigger a Partner Power. If playing in Handheld mode, this isn’t possible.
A Partner Power functions the same as a normal move. So it’s essentially a 5th move for your partner. It can also be used when your partner isn’t currently in battle. The chance of a Partner Power being available is random, but you can increase it by playing with your partner and increasing their Happiness.
|Pika Power||Special||Damage scales with your partner’s Happiness. Never misses.|
|Veevee Volley||Physical||Damage scales with your partner’s Happiness. Never misses.|
If you trigger a Partner Power when your partner isn’t in battle, your current Pokémon’s stats will all increase by 1 stage.
