3 Mini Games

  • Berry Picker – Pick berries and give them to your Pokémon before they lose patience. The more you do the better rating you get. Things speed up as the timer counts down. Difficulties – Easy, Medium, Hard, Unlimited (3 Lives).
  • Head It – Head strings of wool as they fall from the sky, timing is everything. The more you hit without missing the greater the combo (but the faster they come!). Aim for a highscore. Difficulties – Easy, Medium, Hard, Unlimited (3 Lives).
  • Tile Puzzle – Old traditional slide puzzle, try and reorganize it.

Other people’s Pokémon visit your amie home and can give you gifts.

You unlock Poképuffs and furniture for your amie home by playing the mini games and interacting with your Pokémon.

Make facial expressions and the Pokémon might notice!

Your other party Pokémon join in with the mini games too.
