Unfortunately no specifics are given

A new battle mechanism that allows your Pokémon to become even more powerful
when the bonds you share grow stronger.

After how hard the bonds between trainer and Pokemon were pushed in the trailer, this is pretty much to be expected.

Could be cool, but it's hard to judge either way with no info.

Does that mean that one can raise Happiness/Friendship mid-battle (aside from the usual means like level up)? That would make happiness evos more easy to obtain.

I wouldn't read too much into that, it's just reiterating the press release we got on the 8th. Doesn't confirm or deny anything

I don't understand why they'd make Bond a mechanic when you don't use a vehicle.

Kudos to you.

Until we see the 'bond' system in place it's going to be hard to work out what it means, but I'd imagine that the more you use your pokemon, not let them faint, heal them at a pokemon centre etc the more they like you and therefore will be more powerful.

Essentially, pick a 6 and stick to them, no chopping and changing.

It would make Double and Triple battles more interesting. Maybe they could throw in a few more combo moves like the Pledges from B/W.
