Pokémon Refresh has been revealed for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, a new feature that will let players care for their Pokémon.
After a hard fought battle Pokémon may end up rumpled and dirty, with Pokémon Refresh allowing you to clean them up, care for them, feed them Poké Beans, and cure status conditions such as poison or paralysis that were inflicted on them.
As with Pokémon-Amie, those that are looked after can grow very affectionate towards the player and will battle even harder for you. That can mean that they may avoid attacks from an opposing Pokémon, or even hold out when they’re on the verge of fainting.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.
