Question from Zeldafan77

Questions about Friendship and Egg hatching?

I have some questions about a pokemon's friendship and hatching eggs.
Will the egg hatch faster or will the pokemon gain more friendship depending where they are in the party?

Does walking/running/riding a bike affect how fast an egg hatches or a pokemon gains friendship?

Does the position of the pokemon with magma armour/flame body affect the egg?

Zeldafan77 provided additional details:

Next to the egg or at the front of the party? For next to the egg does it have to literally be next to the egg?
1 2
3 egg
Magma Armour 6

would this work or does it have to be like this? 12

Zeldafan77 provided additional details:

Sorry didn't mean to submit
Egg Flame Body

No, it doesn't matter where they are in the party. You gain happiness for every "square" that you go through, so riding your bike would be faster than walking due to covering more ground quicker.

The position of the Magma Armor/Flame Body Pokemon *does* matter, and it needs to be next to the egg that you want to hatch faster.

How to speed up Friendship:
1. Give the Pokemon a Soothe Bell.
2. Give it a massage in Icirrus City once a day.
3. Give it some Berries that raise Friendship, but lower stats.
4. After doing this, start biking around Unova!
How to speed up Egg hatching:
1. Have a Pokemon with Flame Body or Magma Armor in the first slot of your party.
2. After doing this, start biking around Unova some more!

Hope this helps!

It is the first one you listed, where the left or right of the egg, with it wrapping around to the next/previous row based on where the Magma Armor/Flame Body Pokemon is.

No, hatching/friendship is not dependant on party position.

Running or biking only make it SEEM like the egg hatches faster or the pokemon becomes friendlier faster. Since you can take the same number of steps in less time by running or biking, it will take less realworld time to hatch/gain happiness, but the exact same number of steps. The Soothe Bell item (obtain in Nimbasa City) will speed up the friendliness/happiness process, and, as you already know, the flame body/magma armor abilities are the only way to reduce the number of hatching steps.

While I've never seen any evidence to support this, common practice is to put the egg in the party slot directly behind the flame body/magma armor pokemon in order to speed up hatching.

Also, as a side note for pokemon that evolve based on happiness/friendliness, a hatched pokemon will already have a happiness/friendliness level gained from the number of steps taken during the hatching process.
