So what exactly is the new 'bond' mechanic?

They said something to the effect of the bonds between you and your Pokémon will grow deeper with the new battle structure.

For some reason people took that to mean there's a new mechanic called bonds even though it was random marketing jargon.


Thank you from me too.

Typical, I can deal with speculation, like with the multitude of topics about Sylveon but this is absurd. Now I recall seeing that in the trailer and it all makes sense. People around here go on as if it's an actual confirmed new game mechanic. No speculation just guaranteed. The Pokemon community can be ahh well, presumptuous, to put it nicely.

It's a confirmed game mechanic
At the very least, there's a confirmed game mechanic that relates to it

Yep. So until there's some concrete information it's not worth worrying about. Much like Sylveons type.

Yeah, I jumped the gun. That's what i get for accepting one response as the answer. And why haven't I seen this before?

Thank you for this.

It is some type of mechanic, but I think too many are blowing it up to be this massive thing that will change everything.

Sounds fair enough. So it's a confirmed new mechanic, but with no info on how it works and what happens with it. So I wasn't missing anything after all haha.
