Learn about which malasada flavors are the best for your Pokemon

Detailed information on the relationship between nature of Pokemon and flavors of Malasada in Pokemon Sun and Moon

Malasada

  • The Malasada is a new item introduced in the Alola Region. This item can increase a Pokemon’s affection rating. There are different flavors of Malasada and each flavor may be liked or disliked depending on the Pokemon’s nature. Since certain natures prefer certain malasada flavors, it is recommended to feed a certain nature with its favorite flavor.
※ Bear in mind that Affection is an entirely different stat from friendship

Other types of Malsada

  • You can purchase the Big Malasada once a day for 350 pokédollars a piece. This item cures a Pokemon’s status condition similar to the effects of using the item Full Heal.
  • On rare occasions, you can purchase the Mythic Malasada which grants the highest boost to the Pokemon’s affection rating. Keep in mind that you can only purchase it for 1 week and can occur at a random time each month.

Relationship between the Malasada and the Pokemon’s Nature
