What are Poke Puffs?

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

Poke Puffs play an important role in raising your Pokemon's affection for you.

How to Feed Your Pokemon Poke Puffs

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

Click on the Pokemon of your choice and a menu will pop up. You will see three options - Decorate, Play, and Switch. To feed your Pokemon, you must click on 'Play'.

You will be brought to a different screen and your Pokemon will be there waiting for you. Poke your Pokemon and three buttons will pop up on the screen - a Poke Puff, a music note, and a Pokeball. To feed your Pokemon, click on the Poke Puff in the top left corner.

You will now have the option to choose a Poke Puff to feed to your Pokemon. Push and drag the chosen Poke Puff to your Pokemon's mouth and your Pokemon will delightfully (or not so delightfully) eat it depending on its fullness.

When feeding your Pokemon a Poke 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 Poke Puff and you will have a very disappointed Pokemon.

Where are Poke Puffs Obtained?

Poke Puffs can be acquired by playing mini games in Pokemon-Amie. Poke Puffs are awarded based on how well you do in your mini game and depending on how many stars you receive.

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

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

Click on 'Decorate' this time and then at the bottom of the screen, you'll see 'Interior Items' and 'Poke Puffs'. Click on 'Poke Puffs' and then choose which Poke Puff you want for the other Pokemon.

The Poke Puff will appear in the middle of your Pokemon's house for other Pokemon's consumption.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What if my Pokemon refuses to eat any Poke Puffs?

If your Pokemon refuses to eat Poke Puffs, it could be because your Pokemon is full. Don't worry though, if you want to save your Poke Puff, just drag the Poke Puff back into the Poke Puff menu.
